Early Voting Off To Steady Start

More than 300 people cast a ballot in Oak Creek on Monday, the first day of early voting in Wisconsin.

Though Election Day is still two weeks away, voting officially got under way Monday in Wisconsin with the start of early voting.

In Oak Creek, 315 residents cast a ballot Monday, City Clerk Catherine Roeske said. It wasn't quite as many as anticipated, but turnout was steady throughout the day, she said.

Early voting at city hall, 8640 S. Howell Ave., continues through Friday, Nov. 2 during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday).

An increasing number of people have taken advantage of early voting over the last several elections. Roeske said she expects upwards of 20 percent of Oak Creek registered voters to cast a ballot prior to Nov. 6.

Consider these facts before you vote: 1. Is the economy better off now than it was four years ago? Based on the evidence, I'd have to say no. Wages are down, the the prices of everything we buy is up. The price of gas has doubled. Good jobs are scarce. 2. Are the slight "up tics" in the economy a solid trend in the right direction? I don't think so. First, the gains are very slight. Second, I believe they are the result in the temporary stimulus by the Federal Reserve, in which they printed a lot of new money. It provides a slight bump now, but the cost will come later - after the election. Ben Bernanke is trying to save Obama's job, along with his own. 3. The continual misrepresentation of Romney on the auto bailout by the Obama administration. Obama appears to be taking complete credit for the bailout, while simultaneously saying that Romney was for liquidation of the auto industry. This is an absolute falsehood. It was Bush who initiated the bailout and TARP. Obama continued it and then expanded it, to his credit. However, Romney was one of the first to say that the industry needed to go through bankruptcy reorganization, and eventually they did exactly that. He also said that any needed loans should come from the private sector. He never said that the industry should be liquidated, or that he would deny federal funds if he were president, and private sector funds were not available. Obama lies! 4. The Benghazi coverup and lies.

Or simply consider that nothing in the Coulter95 post is actually true and it shows the desperation with which the Republican party is willing to deceive people.

It's all true, Watts, along with all this vital information that an informed voter would want to know. 
Obama has been an economic disaster the last four years, and this Benghazi disgrace is completely unacceptable. This country does not reward failure and dishonesty out of the White House. http://obamalies.net/list-of-obamas-failures http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/18/president-obamas-taxpayer-backed-green-energy-failures/ http://lacrossetribune.com/news/opinion/patti-schmidt-list-of-obama-s-failures-is-long/article_7a139146-fec2-11e1-8e81-0019bb2963f4.html http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/08/obamas-foreign-policy-failures-catalogued.php http://www.facebook.com/notes/republican-security-council/the-top-10-obama-flip-flops-by-ari-fleischer/171275079638338 http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/nilegardiner/100083104/the-u-turn-president-barack-obama-top-ten-flip-flops/ http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/50657 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/25/CBS-Busts-Obama--and-Itself-Hidden-60-Minutes-Clip-Proves-White-House-Lied-About-Benghazi http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-overreach/ You see, it's easy to run on a slogan, like Obama did in 2008. Hope and change, baby... It's much harder to do once you have a record that can be reviewed. He also said in 2008 that if he didn't get the job done in four years, that it would be a one term deal. Well, he hasn't delivered, so time to let him keep his word. Romney/Ryan 2012
