Q&A: Could Sandy postpone the election?
Associated Press, by Josh Lederman

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 10/31/2012 6:47:47 AM

Washington - One week before a close election, superstorm Sandy has confounded the presidential race, halted early voting in many areas and led some to ponder whether the election might even be postponed. (Snip) Q. Could the Nov. 6 election be changed? A. Yes, but it's highly unlikely, and it's not up to the president. Congress sets the date for the presidential election - the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, every fourth year. Congress could act within the next week to change the date, but that would be tough because lawmakers are on recess and back home in their districts campaigning for re-election. Plus, it's likely that would mean changing the date for the entire country,

The media loves to speculate about this sort of thing, but....no, the election will not be postponed.

If the storm had hit anywhere but New York, the question would never even be asked.

Josh needs to do his homework. Congrss cannot convene and simply vote to change the date of the election. The Founders were smarter than that. It would take a Constitutional amendment.

This could be the excuse Obama's needs to challenge election results.
He could say minorities were disenfranchised as the result of the storm.
At a minimum Obama could spark massive riots.

I think most smallish towns (flyover country, Republican) have plenty of generators to power polling locations. I also think that most Dem strongholds never invest money in such infrastructure, instead handing that money out to buy votes, going on decades now.

That is the fear of the left.

I know most of the people who live and work and breathe the Northeastern/New Englnad part of this country probably know this, but there's a whole lotta country in these United States than than New York. We're called 'flyover country', and this storm affected us directly not one bit.

If this election is delayed - even IF - it wouldn't help Barcky now. His downward spiral is already reaching - uh - hurricane force, and it would only get worse for him.

Of course, I have no confidence that anyone on Team Zero is able to RECOGNIZE that an EO or declaration of martial law now would be the ultimate in self-destruction on their part.

Not to mention that the rest of the country would not stand for it.

Strictly defined, there is no such thing as a federal election. There are state elections where electors are chosen to vote (on Dec. 15 this year) for the only two federal officers, president and vice-president. There is no requirement in the Constitution that electors be chosen by popular vote. State legislatures may convene to choose electors, and most of the swing states have Republican legislative majorities and Republican governors. I don't think Barky and his acolytes will take that road.

Just because Noo Yawk, Snookieburg, and The Housewives of Philly got pounded by God's wrath doesn't mean the rest of us have to suspend the Constitution so that they can get in their uninformed, self-undermining stupid votes. And why are their votes more important than those of our GIs?

If liberals want to postpone the election, I say use some negotiation skills and leverage the Libya hearings scheduled on the 15th. Agree to have the election postponed until right after the hearings. See how that works for liberals sliding and slipping along on their way down this intellectually dishonest, unsavory, unethical and uncivil slippery slope. The problem Obama & liberals will find using Lies, Double Standards and Hypocrisy as a big part of their DNC Party Platform, is that there is real probability of getting caught up in the down side of a Catch-22 like this one. Lets call this rock and a hard place another of those "teachable moments." The truth would have set them free. ROFLAO

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Americans who are buying insurance plans over online exchanges, under what is known as Obamacare, will have limited access to some of the nation’s leading hospitals, including two world-renowned cancer centres. Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
