Glazer: Scribe Nods to Vegas, Says ‘I Told You So’

 

Obama wins, simple as that – sorry guys…

All the numbers said it was Obama. This close call was all about the media wanting you to watch. It was never really close….end of story.

Las Vegas doesn’t  make this big of an error – 6 to 1 – no contest. They knew all along it was never close. Le’ts hope the prez does a great job with our really important issues.

Again, I’m a guy who looks at the Vegas odds and it  makes total sense.

Even Jim Cramer quoted those Vegas numbers today and said it’s Obama.

As I have said all along, Mitt Romney did all he could.

End of story…

          Ya know, I think you’re right, it might not be the same Harold Bloom.

          Huh.

          Imagine.

        • paulwilsonkc says:

          Where is the wisdom in cutting and pasting what others have done, then you post it as primary research, like you’re the one who developed it.

          Yes, you were right on the election results, but, as I said, spending your day cutting and pasting items from other pollsters then claiming you’ve done some Jethro Bodine level math on your own is a little disingenuous.

          YOU weren’t right, the POLLSTERS were right. Im going to now cut and paste the Theory of Relativity and claim it was MY idea.

          Have a great day, Im in meetings with Mr Bloom during your press conference.

          • HARLEY says:

            Sorry pauly…but you lose…you’re the loser
            on this one.
            1. there were no pundits nor internet stories
            in january 2011 talking about the huge
            hispanic vote…almost none outright saying
            that obamawould be elected and in august
            of this year there were no pollsters..not even
            nate silver or wang or sabato saying obama
            would get the number of electoral votes that
            came out and said he would get…noone.
            But i would expect that from you.
            You know nothing and yo’ve been proven to
            be wrong again and again on issues here
            on kcc. You predicted romeny to get over
            300….not even close!
            What you put on here is pure bull…
            You’re a loser..on this issue and others.
            There was nothing to cut and paste in
            january of 2011…there were no other
            people syaing obama would get 303-320
            electorl votes…you were the one who went
            and got it and posted it saying I would
            bewrong again. and you have egg on your
            face.
            You are a l o s e r on these issues…..
            stfu!

      • the dude says:

        That is hilarious Chuck.
        I knew Bronco would win but not for the reasons the Harlinator listed. Bronco was the Buildaburgers goto puppet and that’s that in this day of hackable electronic voting machines. The winner is whoever they decide it to be.

        So, four more years of turdburgers, change and hope.
        Yay. 🙁

        • HARLEY says:

          dude and chuckles the sad clown…

          get a life…time is running out for your guys..
          good luck…
          chuckels is used to losing…he’s just never learned
          how to be a honest good loser.
          and again …boys …harley was right…again and
          agin…
          you can’t deny…harley wins in politics and life…

    the money shot!!!!!!
    To all my followers/disciples/readers and fans

    you think harley is hot…you think harley won the perfecta!
    In august harley predicted the final electoral count for obama……wow…

  5. Craig Glazer says:

    its now over, Romney concedes, over and out.

  6. Guy says:

    And you two are STILL douchebags….carry on.

  7. Craig Glazer says:

    Its the morning after….as I wrote, this was never a race…the media knew it…the people who do polls had to know…Vegas sure knew…6 to 1….come on…that’s a monster….means no way Jack….so why didn’t we know….its all about the money as I wrote yesterday and the day before….billions in ad’s, TV, media frenzy….this was not a close race…”We may not know til morning!” Really it was over at 10 PM…some polls had just closed….Florida wasn’t needed to even figure out the winner…Obama already had over 300 electoral votes and was ahead by 3 MILLION VOTES in the..”he might win a tight race but lose the popular vote”…guys it was almost like the jacking McCain got four years ago…THEY ALL KNEW….I gave you all the reasons…all the snapshots that meant if was over some time ago…the desperate quotes from Republicans…none from the Democrats…Vegas was a huge reason….so on….again Romney Did a nice job staying somewhat in the game…by the way you could tell when he gave in two things…one: he knew days before he was beat, he knew…two: he was glad it ended…enough already.

    • paulwilsonkc says:

      Craig, here’s how we knew it; America is full of apathetic voters! Exit polls from CNN said 48% of the people voting for Obama said his “handling” of Hurricane Sandy figured largely in their vote as he… get this… LOOKED so Presidential. He LOOKED Presidential, even though he’d done nothing. For way too many people, even you to some extent, IMAGE means more than substance.

      But we will survive this too.

      The only valid point Asshat has made is that the Republican party is lost. And again, even thats not a Harley original thought. They are stuck in their old ideology and, until they come out of that, they are more or less doomed.

      But even for those of us who aren’t Obama fans, he’s not the worst we’ve ever had. As I wrote to a friend, this morning, lest we forget Woodrow Wilson who openly wrote essays about his love of power and how he felt his office should be a dictatorship! And, the capper, he thought that whole section about inallienable rights was a lot of crap! And then, FDR who confiscated all the gold, etc. There have been worse, for sure.

      The bottom line problem I have with it is we have more people who want to RIDE in the wagon than PULL the wagon. We have a totally LOST Republican party and a Democratic party who wants to build on a base of voters dependent upon the government for their existance. How does this end well? We no longer hear Kenedys words, we want to know what ELSE the government can do for us. Then we want to know what MORE they can do. Thats not how we are supposed to work, from a mentality of entitlement.

      • Hot Carl says:

        “The bottom line problem I have with it is we have more people who want to RIDE in the wagon than PULL the wagon.”

        Exactly. Sad that this country is full of people with their hands out. I’m so tired of my hard-earned money going to fat, lazy bums of all colors who won’t get up off their lazy asses to get a job.

        I have no problem with a little social responsibility. There are people out there who truly need help. But the system has been taken advantage of so fully and completely that I am personally about as apathetic as a person can be. Enough is enough. I rarely give money to charity anymore because A – I need it and B – The US Government gives out more handouts than all charities combined.

        I will never vote Democrat as long as I live. I don’t agree with the entire Republican platform and I don’t hate all things Democrat but I can’t stand how the Dems pander to the lowest common denominator, i.e. stupid people. Too stupid to contribute to society in a meaningful way but when it comes to taking advantage of the system they’re like goddamned Einsteins.

        • paulwilsonkc says:

          Hot Carl, I’ve said before, I went, nearly over night from $200K++ a year to nothing as a result of a series of tragic life events, all in a 6 month window of time. I knew life wouldnt ever be the same, but I didnt fall in the government line for all the possible services. And, this was in the face of discovering 150/210BP and finding my heart, through picking the wrong genetics and parents, was about to explode. I had the drive and ambition to start over and dig out of it.

          Go home and turn on afternoon TV. Go watch the endless Maury baby-daddy shows, Springer, et al, then look at the ads they run for EVERY vocational tech school or career school known to exist. THIS was the 47% that Romney talked about. THIS is the Democratic base that put him back for 4 more years!

          Thats the demographic using their Obama phone and calling to check when the next check arrives. Thats not what we can become as a society, but its what the liberals are trying to build; an increased dependence on the government.

          Thats a no win and it will come with a day of reconing, without a doubt.

          • Hot Carl says:

            “Go home and turn on afternoon TV.

            Couldn’t have said it better myself. I tell people that a vote for a Dem is a vote for the idiots that are suing each other every day on Judge Judy.

          • Apple dlr says:

            You idiot. Who cares what you did 20 years
            ago. You’re a loser. Why do you have to tell
            people that you’re a loser. We already know.
            And if you think 200K is upper income you are a bigger loser than we thought.

      • HARLEY says:

        blah blah blah…
        excuses are like assholes…everyone has one…
        especially you.
        how many excuses for your life do we have to readabout
        …it’s getting old…like all the old angry white guys who
        are locked out in life.
        more b.s…no facts…blah blah blah…more excuses
        from a sad man who has nothing to show for his
        comments…
        remember…harley was right…again and again..

      • HARLEY says:

        more excuses….what next?????????????????????

        • paulwilsonkc says:

          Harley, you sniveling little piece of poo, my life has never been better. Hopefully not, but someday you may find things turn upside down on you. I hope, if that happens, and I wouldnt wish that on any one, you might have a heightened sense of how that comes about, and its NOT from being a loser, sometimes life happens and you start over.
          This have NEVER been better for me, personally. And in the end, thats what matters, no matter what some bloviating ass hole with nothing to go on says.

          And one other thing, they have been talking for 2 flipping YEARS about Hispanic vote, dont pretend like you went to Mexico, presented them a business plan and brought them all here! Good lord, you’re amazing. NO ONE knew about the importance of the Hispanic vote in 2011??? YOU pointed that out?

          I stand in awe of your greatness. You did that? Really?

          • HARLEY says:

            hey pauly….stop….i’ve recieved emails on
            this stuff you put up on here…
            stop….stop….stop…..stop….stop……….
            let the light set you free…………….
            these comments are just hilarious….
            move on….you can’t win ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
            hahahaha

  8. HARLEY says:

    dont have much time a i prepare for online new confernece…
    sorry…romney was the worst candidate at a really bad time to run
    a vulture capitalist for prez.
    1. hispanic vote…i pointed this out over 16 months ago…if you don’t
    get 30-35% of the hispanic vote you lose…simple…the hispanic populatiin
    is exploding in america and if you don’t have them you lose big time.
    2. bad candidate…romeny was a bad prduct to try and sell…too many
    flaws…and his timing was bad.
    we had just gone thru a tough economic time…and everyone knew the
    big money and banks caused it. It was briliant to tie mitt romeny into
    that villain. We all know someone who lost a job…we all lost equity in
    our homes…we all felt this recession in one way or another…and it shook
    us….we knew who caused it (even exit polls yesterday said 53% still blame
    george bush for recession)…and when they portrayed romney and his
    bain capital stuff as part of that reason for the recession and then mitt
    comes out saying his famous 47% qoute…it was over….Obama team
    positioned mitt as a villain and america hated this guy….plus he was
    just not a good campaigner….people just didn’t like him and that showed.
    3. demograhics…the old guys on here may never see another republican
    president in their lifestimes….the world in america is chainging…
    next 2016 election…about half the voters will be minorities…
    when you hate hispanics and blacks…and your policies relfect hatred
    of minorities…you’re going to lose…
    republs need to sit down and get a new strategy for them to survive…
    i think there could be a huge riftin that party between the tea
    party and mainstrram repubs just like what is on now in kansas…

    so i need to runbut i will have my final analysis plus personal notes
    on the election along with my correctpredictions.
    I look forward to fruther comments on kcc.
    ALSO NOTE…get with my website/email to participate in my
    online press converence..
    thanks and

  9. mark smith says:

    From Jimmy the Greeks lips to Gods ears. Well Glazer you were right, Im man enough to say it. Dont get me twisted, it wasnt your sharp political analysis or your firm grasp of voter demographics. It was a 50/50 proposition. Still. So to the winner goes the spoils. In this case the spoils will be 4 more years of a downward spiral. Unemployment will rise. Business will stagnate. The libs will attack coal and oil , energy and gas prices will rise. Washington will be stuck in gridlock. Obamacare will bankrupt the country. If you liked the last 4 years, you are gonna love the next 4. Come January the company I contract for will either cut my pay by 20 percent due to Obamacare, that is if they manage to keep their contract with a local hospital network. So you’ll forgive me if I don’t share the enthusiasm of a little over half of America. Voters chose. Now get ready to choke on it.
    PS harley, after your “news conference” , eat a celeberatory sack O dicks.

    • Super Dave says:

      Yes Mark, Glazer is acting all giddy about what I have no idea. But as you point out and those things will happen so when Glazer starts his bitching and ranting again about losing money, the club not drawing, we can copy and paste this post again to remind him how he was all for this. You know he was a huge Obama supporter just by the way he has jammed it down out throats past few weeks. So let him stew abit and later we will have our fun.

      • Craig Glazer says:

        Seeing biz tough is not new…most of us have had a harder time lately…I wasn’t putting anything down your throats…just saying what I thought would happen and why…I would not have been that sad had Mitt won…I like him, not his party…too harsh, too far right…dangerous…main reason…the Vegas number was the MOST telling number of all. They were 100% correct..thats all.

        NO I am not giddy…I know we are in a battle with our economy…I hope like all of us it improves and soon.

      not post on kccif obama won.
      we hope you discontinue the negative comments and strive
      to be positive.
      and remember…HARLEY WAS RIGHT…16 MONTHS AGO
      AND PICKED THE ELECCTORAL COUNT FOR OBAMA…
      SEE PREVIOUS POSTS…
      now play nice.

    • Craig Glazer says:

      Mark I hope nothing bad happens to you, your job or anyones….I will say this Mitt likely would have been better for the economy… I don’t like a leader who never really ran a business of his own…we’ve had that in KC with the last five or six Mayors…horrible…they don’t understand business…Obama has many advisors that do…but not himslef…so yes Mitt might have been better…it’s everything else…the far right is too ‘mean spirited’ on all other sides…not a live and let live group…they are in your face…the dem’s waste money, true..but not trying to ‘kill you’ if you are not one of them…like the law enforcement in Johnson Co. is way too harsh…fine with violent criminals, but they are so money mad they make almost everyone a ‘bad guy.’

      We all hope for the best…look it has gotten a bit better since Bush, we forget how close we came to REALLY going down…I think Obama wants to solve the economy for his sake and his legacy…we have to hope they do..

      • HARLEY says:

        actually glaze that wrong…big time…
        george w. bush ran a business that daddy set him up
        with…and look what he policies did for us…took us right
        into the tank with unfunded wars and tax cuts.
        Buseinss acumen is not a good prerequisite ffor being a
        leader…

  10. Orphan of the Road says:

    I’m sure I’m not alone. I didn’t vote for President Obama because I liked him or his policies.

    Scrape off the rhetoric and the difference between the two candidates was minimal. For all practical purposes, Obama is a moderate Republican.

    Romney, as did John McCain, pandered to the extremists in the Republican party.

    It was fun to watch Karl Rove’s head spin around and steam shoot from his ears.

    The Republicans spent four-years urinating in the corn flakes and now wonder why no one wanted to sit down and have breakfast with them.

    • Brandon Leftridge says:

      Well said.

    • rkcal says:

      truth there.

    • HARLEY says:

      wrong…romney lost because he was the wrong candidate at the
      wrong time..his 47% comment…the hispanic vote that is going
      to control elections in half the states and across the nation…
      fact that romney was a flawed candidate and that obama had
      the best comapaign staff ever in american politics..
      add it together and you have obama win.
      and harley not only guessed the winner 16 months ago but also
      was correct on the obama electoral vote count…the perfecta!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Jim D says:

Start paying attention to the slim but sane slice of the GOP (i.e., Christie, Rubio) – better se habla espanol and learn how to talk to the ladies ASAP. And for the love of God, ignore the Tea Bagger crazies. From them, a coalition cannot be built. America needs two viable parties.

    I think Mark’s on to something here,
    And what it is, is perfectly clear –
    We’re in for trouble, year after year,
    But don’t worry, boys, I’ve saved you some beer!

    P.S. – Since you’re apparently on a roll, Harley, do you have any eschatological predictions for all of us?

      No, but he will no doubt have some ‘scatalogical’ commentary.

  13. Kerouac says:

    The saddest day in the history of the (former) United States, Tuesday, November 6, 2012… last vestiges in tatters, my country no longer ’tis of thee, one I loved.

    As for the spume landscape?

    Jean Paul Sartre said it best, first: ‘by any means necessary’. So it has come to this – every man will be accountable. I, Kerouac will do all in my power to fight the current fiasco in every individual way possible.

    I embrace/applaud Mr. Trump’s sentiments; too, Republicans can & will stalemate the current White House… this provides a measure of satisfaction. Gridlock is here to stay, for, this is in a sense war. Individual states will continue to defy the lame duck & even more overtly, persons comporting just the same.

    My opinion, the passion & contempt this election has engendered will lead to dire repercussions & consequences – so be it – my late father always believed another revolution was in store the US; perhaps a coming foment was prescience.

    Whether the resident will still exist 4 years hence? Based upon the current climate, tenuous my guess… Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Kennedy… wonder what the Vegas odds say, CG?

    • Jim says:

      The absolute epitome of why government doesn’t work. Stalemate? That provides some measure of satisfaction? WTF is wrong with people? Basically, 1/2 of the country voted one way and the other 1/2 voted another way. That outcome SCREAMS for a compromise that both parties can live with on the major issues of the day. There is ALWAYS a resolution to every problem as long as the parties involved realize they are BOTH going to give something to get something. THAT is the way every business and every relationship thrives and survives. The “MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY” form of government benefits no one. The vindictive, finger-pointing positions that both political parties have adopted is a dead end road. Ideologues on both sides of the aisle have high-jacked their respective parties leaving the 60% of Americans who want to be governed from the middle out of the process. Donald Trump and his ilk can take a giant sized bite of my ass. He doesn’t have a clue about my world or a world in which REAL choices are made every day about how best to budget my money and provide for my family. Not. A. Clue.

        “THAT is the way every business and every relationship thrives and survives.”

        – alas, government/politics is a relationship made up of strange bedfellows…

        My preference Trump’s yours, to each their own persuasion…

        • Jim says:

          Angst? Not really. My life goes on despite the party of the POTUS. I’m a realist. I know and understand EXACTLY how government works. For the most party, it doesn’t. There are REASONS why it doesn’t. If that point was lost on you, Kerouac, I’m sorry. To think that one party or the other has all the answers is comical.

          • Kerouac says:

            “To think that one party or the other has all the answers is comical.”

            – you like to laugh… must be a Chiefs fan. The next four years in Washington will look exactly like the last four: i.e., a re-run of the 2012 KC season. Pioli and the ‘resident’ share much in common… failure.

      • the dude says:

        Hear hear, I don’t understand why a blowhard idiot like Trump even has a soapbox to bloviate from. The man has blown daddy’s money so many times and declared bankruptcy more times than I could count on both my hands.

        • Kerouac says:

          Gee, I wonder what stopped him after being convicted for an 8th time…

          Comedian Jackie Mason had a routine back in the 1960’s wherein he stated that every night when his mother and father retired for the night, his father would say “well, do you want to go to bed or what”? To which mother would reply, “what!?”

          Mason – “‘But they stopped having kids after she’d given birth to their 14th because my parents heard that every 15th child born in this country was an Indian!”

          Could have done worse… might’ve had one born in Hawaii.

    I hate the term “the market”, as it gives a name to what is mostly emotion, but the market knows the “fiscal cliff” looms large and minutes from closing we are nearly 300 points down. Wall Street is EXHURBERANT over the election of Obama, huh?

    Put your seats and tray tables in their full, upright position and stay seated for the duration of our flight.

        HEY THOMAS…guys with stupid comments arent in the

        just hanging on the outside looking in.
        when someone makes a wrong comment and you see
        they know nothing about business…when you see
        their history…i mean…take it easy on these guys because
        they’re just not sophisccitaced enough to understand
        business….so i give them the benefit of the doubt because
        it amazing how little knowledge they really have besides
        what they get out of comic books.

      another wrong comment pauly…pleasestop….
      do y0u understand how wall street works pauly?
      do you understand that under obama dow doubled?\
      do you understand business…obviously you need me to
      school you on business…and finances…and the biz world…
      come on dude….did you not think this was going to happen…
      I will hold a class on economics 101 for people who don’t

        Its todays news, dipshit, the market was down 300 when I wrote that. Its THE MARKET! How is that wrong. Its those numbers that keep ticking by!! Good lord, you are so funny. Its WRONG unless you typed it.
        Today’s news, the market – down 300 at around 2:17 when I checked it. I can’t make that up and it can’t be wrong. You’ll have to tell that to Wall Street. It was THEIR reports.

        Spend some time learning to write and use spell check instead of touting your greatness. If youre that great, it would be handy if the normal person could actually read what you type without having to play word match games in their heads to determine what you typed, said and meant!!

    RT @JRubinblogger: Averaging polls is mathematically, statistically wrong when vastly diff models, sample sizes, margins of error, etc.

      little man…let me explain things to you so you don’t have to
      put up stupid comments..
      wall street makes money on movement…know what that means..
      whether stocks go up or down the money guys make money.
      Wall street has become gamed against small investors..with their
      huge millisecond computers that make them millions.
      i guarantee someone on wall street last night said we can make
      millions on the stock market tomorow…take obamas
      win and we can kill the market for a week or so…and make
      millions doing…kabish little guy.
      but for over 3 years they loved the guy…doubling the market prices..
      and let me explain something else little man…
      stocks don’t reflect the street anymore…understand…
      corporation on the dow are making huge huge profits like never
      before…while stiffing the american public with their tax scams…
      so while g.e. pays nothing…you littleman have to make up the
      difference…although under obama your taxes are as low as they
      were in the 50’s….did you know that…i didnt cut and pasted that
      littlman.
      did you know that your fed taxes are low…low …low and with
      obamas payroll tax cut you’re paying less than you did under bush???????
      i’m sure you don’t know that…so i have to lecture you on it…
      so sure the market went down 300points…but it went do 800-1000
      in sept. 2008 under bush in a day…where were you then littleman…
      did you read news today little man…boner said he’s going to make
      a dela with obama…lets hope they do somethingbecause its gotta beddone.
      for gods sake pauly…why do i have to set you straight on this stuff
      all the time…jim d was right…you look bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      most of the people on here ain’t got a pot to piss in…they’ve got no
      stocks or savings.! they’re waiting for social secruity and medicare to come
      in 3-4 years like you do. so they aren’t inthe stock market heavy…
      its irrelevant…
      read much little man…maybe you need to do some research…read
      some articles about the stock market…get educated…because i’m
      tiredv of having to school you on this crap all the time……………………

    Harley, Harley, Harley…. Any chance, how ever small, that you are truly a bright, caring erudite human is totally removed by your endless rambling and hard to wade through posts.
    Any chance, how ever small, that you’re right all the time, is removed by your constant screaming about how right you are.
    Any chance you are ethical, however small, is removed by you NOW using an email as your own personal address you once claimed, on multiple posts, as one belonging to your attorney, Stan Greenberg. The same on you used to impersonate him while sending me threats from said attorney. Since that’s technically a felony that prompted a small investigation. It cost some pocket change, but you’re now known.

    Well it was good to see a spirited run here…it was after all about our next president..kinda important…again we are entitled to our own opinions…only time will tell who is right or wrong….again, both men likely are fit for the role…Obama won…lets all hope he helps make things get better….that is best for all of us…

    Congratulations, Harley. Your guy won this one. I still do not like the direction he has taken this country and am worried about what he is going to do the next four years. My views on Obama are still the same. I hope I am wrong and he does a better job the next four years than he has the first four years.

      but the first term mcconnell and ryan and the rest of congressional

      are open for her to take..
      its crazy but how do we get those positions fillledlll
