Skip to comments.How insider Nate Silver was able to make better 2012 predictions- The IRS card. Morris owed apology

Given that we now know that the Federal government used its full weight and resources to stop the voter participation in the 2012 elections we know see how an insider could make better predictions.
You really put a lot of effort into this post.
Then Barone and the rest would have known.
You really have to appreciate the exhaustive research, the incisive insights and the convincing conclusions.
Truly, a landmark work...
At least he has a Thesis.
Watch out, he might want to suck your toes in appreciation.
You two are unaware that the iRS was used to stop Conservative groups from partipating in the 2012 election.
And that Nate SIlver is an insider.
I believe you guys.
Start your education with a paper you must truly believe:
The Los Angele Times
Or Nate Silver could have just looked at the polls, averaged them, and seen the Obama was likely going to win
“You really have to appreciate the exhaustive research, the incisive insights and the convincing conclusions.

Yes, but has this been peer reviewed?
We should start a class action suit against the IRS for voter fraud and supression....
Here’s a thread for some of our Daily Kos Moles that are unaware of whats going on.
Or that what they could do would be enough to swing the election to him?
Unfortunately, peer review is not possible because of the lost data, or the refusal to produce it.
No $hit, $herlock.
That's been patently obvious from the moment that conscious targeting of Tea Party groups was established.
It's hardly news.
Whether or not Silver, a baseball stathead, was in the scam is interesting -- at a certain level -- but largely irrelevant.
C'mon, be of good humor. We're just funnin' with ya.
Here's the thing - 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) groups are not supposed to "participat[e] in the 2012 election" (or any other election) in any meaningful way. Partisan political groups do not qualify for that status. So, I'm not sure that targeting conservative/tea party nonprofits would have stopped groups conservative/tea party groups from participating in the election, since the organizations that were targeted were not (or should not have been) involved in partisan political activities.
Nate Silver is nothing but a partisan hack.
Well if the rule you’re obviously in favor of was followed by the dumbocrats, we’d have no participation by Media Matters, Rock the Vote, and ACORN. But the last time I checked, they weren’t following the rules as written, although we’re supposed to? With people like you at the helm, we’ll never win these battles.
we know see how an insider could make better predictions.
We know. See?
Another good article for our Low Info Kos Moles.
IRS higher-ups requested info on conservative groups, letters show
The cat that used to appear in cat food commercials?
But he's deceased...and why would he be owed an apology?
Your comment made it click. Dick Morris. Of course. The reformed Clintonista pundit who used to be on TV every day. The one who predicted that the 2008 election would be Hillary vs. Condi.
Is he still around?
Perhaps, but okie01 has a Thesaurus ;-)
If your point is that this shows the lengths that the regime will go to to assure election outcomes.
Does this make it more likely that direct voter fraud was involved in the re-election of the regime?
You link back here. Dumb!
I think maybe you have a slightly skewed idea of what these groups can and can not do. They can not support or oppose candidates directly; however, they can support or oppose issues ESPECIALLY contentious political issues.
He’s still around, kinda like the ring in the bathtub at a cheap motel.
WHY? That is what the leftists want. That is why the leftists still whine about the Supreme Court decision on Citizen's United. That is why the leftists attempted to and successfully silenced many conservative groups using the IRS and many other agencies.
Keeping alive the free marketplace of ideas is what this is all about. The left wants to censor the people.
