    How is this stuff different than some 3rd world nation with pictures of the local dictator everywhere?

    It ought to be illegal…

    Every petty dictator likes to self aggrandize….

    The room doesn’t look very crowded. Probably they will only achieve a ballot count of 102% of the registered voters.

    About the polling places in Phila that kicked out the Republican observers this morning;

    2008 Results-(only found results by Ward – not lower level Division)
    Ward % vote for Obama % Turnout
    6 99.07 60.1
    12 97.73 60.4
    18 81.80 59.1
    20 92.89 56.0
    24 90.84 60.4
    29 97.72 57.4
    32 97.94 55.1
    39 62.09 59.4
    43 95.51 52.0
    56 59.99 63.7
    65 62.57 63.6

    Turnout over 100% would be a the Division level, not the Ward level (data above). McCain carried 1 Ward (26) in South Phila by 53-46. Obama carried the other 65 Wards by over an 80% margin.

    Black Panthers at the door, Obama’s picture on the wall behind the voting stations, kicking out opposition poll watchers, later today Dems will go to a judge to getting voting hours extended… no cheating hear, nothing to see, please move on.

    Obama’s downcast look in that picture reminds me of how he looked so ashamed in the first debate when Romney was hammering him on all of his failures. If anything, the painting may remind people of Obama’s disgrace at the first debate when Romney exposed so many of Obama’s broken promises and Solyndra-like frauds.

    Still, it’s stupid and the idiot(s) who put it up should be removed from the school system.

    The other day in another thread I stated that I weep for our democracy. Another poster stated that we are not a democracy we are a republic. Unfortunatly, something tells me that
    later tonight we will learn that we are no longer either.
