The military vote.

Military Absentee Ballots Delivered One Day Late, Would Have Swung Election For Romney | The Duffel Blog

Quote:
WASHINGTON, DC Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.

I told Gunny we got a bunch of ballots instead of ammo, Davis told investigators earlier today. He told me to file a report of improper delivery and that the chain of command would take care of it. We didnt hear anything for three weeks. While we were waiting we came under fire so we dumped a bunch of them in the Hescoes. We didnt dig those ones back out.

After military officials realized the initial error, the ballots were then sent back to the U.S. but suffered a series of setbacks.

Twelve boxes of ballots were dropped overboard during delivery to the USS Kearsarge (LHD-3) in the Persian Gulf, then while the ship sailed to Bahrain, postal clerks allegedly pocketed whatever ballots they wanted.

The remaining absentee ballots were loaded onto a C-130, but the flight was delayed until November 1st so the crew could get tax free pay for the month. Once the ballots arrived stateside they were promptly mailed to each states counting facility, reaching their final destination on November 7th.

Its a shame, Rear Admiral John Dawes said when asked for comment. I expected a delay so I ordered that everyone cast their votes eight months ago. Its really unfortunate that our mail system failed us and directly affected the course of history.

Upon hearing the news, angry Republicans have begun a demand for a recount, but most military absentee voters have shrugged off the news, with many wondering whether the care packages their families sent six months ago were ever going to show up.

Hundreds of thousands?!? Some how I doubt that.

Your boy lost because they ran a terrible campaign and only made it close because Obama didn't show up to the first debate.

It was close because Obama had the most unproductive presidency since WH Harrison

The polls, which ended up being right, had Obama winning and climbing before the first debate. Romney took a slight edge afterwards then plateaued. If Obama had drank a 5 hour energy befor that first debate it wouldn't have been as close as it was.... Which, as it turned out wasn't very close.

too bad he never once ran on his record (except for spiking Bin Laden's head) but instead allowed his minions to call Romney everything from a murderer to an animal abuser
