  •  What about Sandy? (7+ / 0-)

    Is it some kind of admission that Obama handled it well in the days after it happened? That it's vindication of shifting climates? I don't grasp what they're bloviating about.

    And, last I checked, NJ and NY, particularly the areas that were hit, have a higher-than-average proportion of minorities to the overall population. So...

    •  No, no. You see, all those in NY and NJ who were (7+ / 0-)

      affected by Sandy were planning to vote for Romney.  You know how conservative New Yorkers and New Jerseyites are.  Those were the conservative people who voted for Obama in 2008 because, you know, he's black, and they were all giving him a sympathy vote, and stuff, but they were now the most disappointed by Obama's first term. But Obama controlled the weather with his mind and prevented them from either being polled or voting, damn him and his voter suppression tactics.

      Sure, some of them were (storms are equal opportunity like that). But if he thinks Sandy only lowered turnout in tony white suburbs, he can't do geography any better than data-collection.

      And that's aside from the Electoral College thingy that meant that a few hundred thousand votes in NY and NJ (and even CT) didn't really make any difference.
