Critical Mass – An amount or level needed for a specific result or new action to occur.

Close elections are won or lost in the final weeks. No election is ever won without Critical Mass.

On a cold Friday night, November 2nd, 2012, Mitt Romney held an outdoor rally in West Chester, Oho. It kicked off around 6:00 P.M. with a 30 minute performance by Kid Rock.

According to the the local fire department the crowd size was estimated to be between 30,000 – 35,000.

Speaking that night were some of the Republican Party’s most notable figures including: Vice Presidential Candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (WI), Ohio Senatorial Candidate Josh Mandel, Sen. John McCain (AZ), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), Rudy Giuliani (Former Mayor of NY), Gov. John Kasich (OH), The Speaker of the House John Boehner (OH), Sen. Rob Portman (OH), Rep. Arthur Davis (AL), Gov. Bob McDonnell (VA), to name a few.

Other’s on stage that night but not speaking included Gov. Rick Perry (TX), Gov. Bobby Jindal (LA), Rick Santorum (PA), and many more.

The speeches were fiery and full of passion with Rudy Giuliani and John McCain hitting the president hard on the cover up in Benghazi and the country’s high unemployment. An Obama campaign spokesman would later describe the event as, “Speaker after speaker offered angry, hyper partisan, and widely-debunked attacks that—at times—veered into conspiracy theory territory”. Which has become the standard liberal response to all conservative commentary that hits too close to home.

In contrast to these events in West Chester, President Obama who was also in Ohio that day, he held a rally indoors at a High School Gym in Springfield. After a good deal of effort I could  find no estimate of the crowd size (It was in a High School Gym so I guess we can just imagine).  I can find no list of guest speakers. I can find nothing except the President’s quote “Voting is the best revenge”. Which makes me wonder, who’s angry? But I digress.

I said three weeks ago, Romney would win in a landslide. (300 or so) My internal polling numbers tell me nothing has changed and it will be historic when Barrack Hussein Obama cries, two days in a role. People realize it may be too late to fix anything in four more years. It won't be easy, because it is truly a mess. The media has covered up the magnitude of what we face. Fiscal cliff, sequestration, QE Infinity, unsustainable deficits, sputtering economy home and abroad, crumbling infrastructure, financial crisis in homes, as well as student loans, unrest abroad, gridlock, to name a few. Are you sure you want this job, Mitt?

30-35,000 people is a critical mass? 

Blueblood, even if Romney wins, I don't think there's any chance he gets to 300 electoral votes. Where would he be getting those numbers from?

I"m still probably about ~90ish % confident that Obama wins

It was a great event last Friday and even you would have enjoyed it. It was more like a sporting event than a campaign rally! I thought long and hard about going to see Obama Sunday, and might have for the novelty of it, had it not been a non stop weekend.
 
I am looking at some big surprises tonight. It could be just wishful thinking, but I am looking at blueblood turning RED Dawn! We will know pretty early which way the wind blows, and I am expecting hurricane party!
 
I have heard Democrats making excuses all day. Last night Obama's last stop was way too mushy and sounded more like farewell!

Congratulations to team Obama on a truly historic win!
 
If anything other than the obvious was revealed, it is the divisive nature of our country in its current makeup. The euphoria of your team winning the Super Bowl is something everyone can easily relate to, even a long time suffering Bengal fan like myself.Wink Beyond the obvious of this wave that becomes so evident for each side, this election is ( or should be) a much more serious "game" with real life ramifications, consequences and rewards. From my perspective, it is not even remotely possible to get a grip on, and understand why, things are as they seem to be. I have looked over the exit polling as to why we vote for whom, and some of our expectations as we each view the world through our individual perspective.
 
Even upon seeing the varying degrees of why, it only adds to the confusion of truly getting a grip on the divisive nature of our individual outlook. And with that said, in the nature of healing, unity, and understanding a totally foreign perspective to most conservatives I believe, and to promote a national healing that Lincoln summed up best in his divided cannot stand observation, I would be more than slightly interested to hear an exit poll from any Obama supporters on here, who are willing to courageously lay out their reasons and expectations as to why they voted as they did.
 
I will pledge to you, that I personally will not attack, question, belittle, or in so much, even respond to you for anything you might say and would hope that others would show the same restraint.

I guess I do not understand why this respect isn't offered at all times.  And I'm not speaking to blueblood, specifically.

I voted for Obama because I believe that Romney's foreign policy would be driven by the same people who led us into Iraq.  I do not think either candidate would be good for a free market economy because both are beholden to Wall Street bankers.

And the guy responsible for Benghazi is BETTER?????  "Al Qaeda is has been defeated"  HUH???  They are more active than ever, thank you, Mr President. A policy of appeasement does not seem to be a policy that will ultimately keep us safe.  Seem likes a "bury your head in the sand" and ignore terrorist activity in Mid-East policy can only lead to major problems...JMO

Well hopefully some discourse can calm down now. I never thought I'd be so happy to see terrible product commercials again. 

Anyway, I think I'm most happiest that people like Akin and Murdouck weren't elected. No wait strike that, I think I'm most happiest that we have 4 more years of the Onion making fun of Joe Biden.

There ya go, blueblood.  Probably a pretty good explanation why Obama supporters would shy away from getting on here and explaining their vote.  If you haven't noticed, this forum isn't typically a "liberal" friendly zone.  For some reason people find it impossible to understand that opinions vary.

it's not that opinions vary.  it's that you are stupid for having yours and she a genius for hers.

can't you see it?

Quote who are willing to courageously lay out their reasons and expectations as to why they voted as they did.

Sorry blueblood, I completely missed this or I would have responded earlier.

The principle reason: I'm a democrat!

I voted for Barack Obama because I believe in the ideals of the democratic party. A social safety net for the poor, universal health care, a women's right to choose, and a bunch of other issues that I could be pretty certain Obama would champion.

In Obama's first term he went to work on causes I agree with, and did things I'm truly proud of. Getting universal health care started, tougher regulations on the credit card industry, working towards ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, all while decimating our enemies abroad.

I was happy with his first term so figured I'd give him another term.
