Nate Silver could be a one-term celebrity.

The New York Times' resident political predictor says President Barack Obama currently has a 74.6% chance of winning re-election. It's a prediction that liberals, whose heart rates continue to fluctuate with the release of every new poll, want to take solace in, but somehow can't. Sure, this is the guy who correctly predicted the outcome of the 2008 election in 49 of 50 states, but this year's polls suggest a nail-biter.

"Romney, clearly, could still win," Silver told POLITICO today.

This thread is an opportune plate to note the lack of [vulgarity deleted] postings about Intrade numbers over the last month. They certainly made a nuisance of themselves earlier in the year.

The thing that sickens me to no end is that the last image the low information (idiot) voters will take to the voting booth will be of Hussein in his yellow coat helping comfort hurricane victims.

It might be just enough to pull his sorry Kenyan butt over the finish line and bring the Nate Silver worship from the libs to a whole new level.

Obama has provided more assistance to governors than he has to his ambassadors.

Absolutely true.

No matter what happens, Obama, Silver, Biden, Hillary...they’re ALL heroes for life for the leftist droolers.

These people, remember, still think of Jimmy Carter as a hero. LBJ, too...all of LBJ’s micro-management and subsequent handcuffing of America in Vietnam, his ruination of the black family via welfare, all of that is FORGOTTEN.

Carter’s gasoline lines, humiliation from Muslim extremists in Iran, his impotent response to Soviet domination of Asia, FORGOTTEN.

Clinton’s obvious failures in lying under oath, his sleeping at the wheel as the dot-com bubble inflated the stock market, his weak-kneed response to the Cole bombings and embassy bombings in Africa, all FORGOTTEN.

The leftists make HEROES out of their failures—contrast this to conservatives...arguably the worst Republican president in the last 50 years was Nixon. You ever hear a full throated defense of him from conservatives? Nope. You hear the truth: while good on anti-Communist expansion and a need to engage China, Nixon screwed up by wage and price controls and implementing the horrendous EPA.

Basically, I think conservatives are MORE HONEST about their history—liberals whitewash and deify their heroes.

Reagan is, I admit, a bit of a “demigod” by us conservatives....but only because he was SUCH a rarity and fought so long to finally win the presidency. Still, Reagan left us with some problems: Sandra Day O’Connor, for instance...and his response to the Marine bombing in Lebanon wasn’t the best. My point isn’t to rip Reagan...he was 10,000 times better than Carter. He just wasn’t perfect.

Romney, too, won’t be perfect. Far from it. He WILL be a better President than Obama.

If Nate Silver wants to lay 3 to 1 odds, I’ll take $5k of that action.

Nate Silver is insane. If his numbers are accurate then Romney has no chance, but I think he is wrong
