You guys asked for a recount...and you got it. Romney is still the winner...with even a larger lead than he had in the original count.

www.fox19.com...

The Maine Republican party has released revised results from the presidential caucuses held last Friday, February 11th.

These are the newly released results (PDF on their site) from the Maine GOP, showing the current caucus vote count.

The total number shows a difference of 239 votes between Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Ron Paul, the leaders in caucus votes


Here are the new results: www.mainegop.com...


So what's the consensus now...satisfied? Still claiming fraud? Still waiting for tomorrow?

Umm.... not all the votes are in yet. While I don't know which way it will go, let's wait to report on this until after Saturday evening, when ALL the votes are in.

Doesn't surprise me. That's why it took so long to recount. Had to fudge the numbers just right.

I just counted 30 municipalities on the first 3 pages, that had not had their votes counted yet.

Did you even bother looking at it before you posted?

Wasn't really a claim, it happened.

Ron Paul is still going strong even against treasonous cheaters.

Why couldn't you just make the thread as a presentation of data? Why do have to GLOAT about it and write in a tone of bravado. I don't get what adult would do that...

And with only partial information too. It's bizarre behavior.

Why should anyone be satisfied, Non Ron Paul fans included?

The story and events around Maine should be a concern for EVERYONE in America. Why are you so festive about it? Has your dislike for Ron Paul clouded you THAT much?

Looking at numbers from 2008 for Hancock and Washington counties and then adjusting them for the average increase in voter turnout this year Paul will have to win 55% of the vote to just get the 239 votes needed to catch up to where Romney's at now. While this is just based on some quick number crunching it looks like Paul is either going to need about 75% of the vote from these two counties or he has to hope for a huge voter turnout to win Maine.

Of course it's still fraudulant. We knew it would be. I called that they would do this here: www.abovetopsecret.com...

You don't catch a thief stealing and then let them get back to work. I knew what was up when they agreed to a recount that no one really asked for, we just wanted all the counties included. They are just widening the margin so it is less likely tomorrow is a game changer.

Were we supposed to trust the same corrupt group to do a recount that defrauded the original vote? What is funny is you bought right into what they were doing. I know it doesn't matter because you oppose Paul, but I would be ashamed if I was fooled by someone as ignorant as this Webster fellow. Do you really think that pulling this stunt changes anything? I mean I guess it might succeed in scaring people away from questioning their authority, but most of us see it for what it was: a chance to make the counties voting tomorrow less likely to be a game changer.

I love how you claim to be well reasoning, and only err on the side of evidence yet you salivate at these ridiculous scraps of nonsense like pavlovs dog.

It's also funny that this idiot prematurely released the results TWICE now, and is trying to fix the vote for yet to be voted in counties by making the gap larger. They would have let Paul win it if it wasn't going to have any attention paid to it, now they are trying to get the fix in because Washington county announced they would be releasing their results to the media against the Maine GOPs will. I would love to know what happened to him only releasing the final results in March (even if Pauls people whined and moaned I think he said). This guy is clown shoes, why does he still have a job?

Great thread though. I love how how biased and complete trash it is.

As posted above, there was no claim, it happened. And you, just like the state of Maine the first time around, jumped the gun. Not all the data is even in yet.

And I just wanted to tell you thank you. You've opened my eyes to Ron Paul. Thanks to your constant criticism, at every chance. I wondered what it was exactly that has you so scared and worked up like a Jr. High drama queen. So, I did some research on Dr. Paul. And I;ll be damned if he isn't the best thing to step onto a political stage in decades.

I can see how if you might be slighity facist or socialist, he could scare the hell out of you. But, as a true red, white and blue blooded American, I dont understand why the others, including Obama, are still trying.

But, I digress. Thanks again, for showing that there is hope for us all. Even if it was you ignorance that lead the way.

Oh, and as far as your OP goes, I dont imagine youll get a whole lot of S&Fs, or even decent responses. Your just too condescending in the few lines that you bothered to type up.

Yeah I guess it's unreasonable to ask for transparency in the vote count. So the GOP claims they recounted and Romney won gee what a surprise. Until there is full and complete transparency this recount is a joke!

Also they have not finished counting but I would only expect idiots to not actually do the due diligence required to know such things...

LOL, Webster is short minded. Since neither the Maine caucus nor the 2012 presidential votes have been finalized He should have not only claimed that Romney won Maine twice , but that Romney also won the future 2012 election against Obama. Apparently, if this guy is this good and we don't really need to count the total votes why wait for the actual election?

I know what you mean. I confronted him about it and he told me not only was I wrong, but that my relationship was in trouble but not to worry that I would find new love, he said don't go on that plane to new mexico, and that 2012 would be a better year than 2011. Then he gave me his 800 number.

Haha , LMAO


Forget Nostradamus or Edgar Cayce I'm going to keep an eye out for Webster the prophet in the PREDICTIONS & PROPHECIES forum.




Interesting what has been said about Webster before this caucus:


"He's ruined his integrity, he's ruining the Republicans' integrity and he's damaging our entire political system though his fear-mongering and lies," Grant said in a prepared statement.
www.onlinesentinel.com...


Funny enough at one point he appeared to care about upsetting people over 19 votes


However, Webster, who has criticized students from out of state who attend Maine colleges and vote in Maine, said the 19 voters "scammed" the system.

I think that in the arena of public opinion, people are going to be upset."
www.onlinesentinel.com...


In contrast to today where he feels that 19 votes matter more than 120 votes :


“You get people complaining about Waldo County [where some votes were not counted]. We’re talking 120 votes, and most of them went to Santorum. … It’s a handful of votes, and those are important, they all count, but it’s not like we were trying not to count them,” Webster asserted.

Exactly. In light of that last bit in your post, how could anyone not think there is something fishy about this guy?

This is the results of the re-count...not of the caucuses that haven't voted yet.

Sorry you are dissapointed with the results.

Yes, I looked at it...many precincts haven't caucused yet.

Again...this is the RECOUNT of the ones that did already vote.


It's really not that hard to understand people.

You aren't supposed to speak of those silly facts in a Ron Paul thread.

You are supposed to re-enforce their fantasy world that they live in....where Ron Paul wins 80% of the vote in the real world just like he does on the internet.

Don't you love how no one responded to you?
