    Alex is reality challenged. What a right wingnut tool he is. I remember him telling us that the Nixon gas lines were during Carter's years, that he longed for the Clinton redistribution of wealth, and several other gems. CNN would do well to put him on welfare, and hire Huntsman.

    Alex Castellanos is a Republican shill who vomits Republican propaganda like he's fact-bulimic. I trust his "opinion," i.e., the opinion Karl Rove gave him, as far as I can wizz up a wall without using my hands.

    Castellanos is a hack. If he thinks the northern Virginia suburbs will go for Romney, then CNN should fire him and hire someone who knows the facts.

    Wait, what? I didn't know CNN was producing campaign ads. Obamacare cuts Medicare??? http://www.politifact.com/ohio/statements/2012/may/21/jim-renacci/jim-renacci-says-betty-sutton-gutted-medicare-500-/

    Some interesting points. I do agree that the population demographics of Arizona are not likely to provide a victory for Obama. Polling does not bear out some of your lean-and-sold Romney classifications, however. The vast majority of polls of Virginia, for example, show it as lean Obama or within the margin of error. Florida, North Carolina, and Missouri are all toss-ups, according to polls.

    I suppose this represents how Mr. Castellanos, as a Republican, would *like* to see the map.

    I like Alex because he keeps giving his fellow deluded right wingnuts some false hope on winning the WH with a synthetic candidate.

    Wow. Could he be more biased? Rethuglicans are in for a rude awakening come November.

    OBAMA 2012!

  12. That Guy

    I agree with Alex on about everything but I believe Virginia and Ohio along with New Hampshire are lean Obama.

    Does anyone have any idea what this guy is trying to say?

    Thanks, but no thanks, Alex.

    Paid punditry isn't my cup of tea.

    Truth is the economy is hurting, people are standing in the unemployment line and many have given up looking for work. Obama did take money from Medicare for Obamacare. People will vote by their checkbooks and not everyone is an Investments Advisor that can go on a shopping spree weekly.

    Beltway Virginia and its fancy K Street educated elitists will lean towards President Obama. Rural Virginia, and those folks not so much into that edjumacation or daggone book learnin’ will go for Romney – just like they did for McCain and that imbecile redneck woman (what was her name again?).

    @Willard bullock.. What??? Take the advice of the POTUS, go back to school please. Can anyone translate this idiocy?

    OBAMA 2012!

    Nate Silver is the only one to trust with the electoral map. For real. He does it with math, not partisan ideological bobblehead magic thinking after huffing unicron farts from a plastic CVS bag.

    His body lanquage and facial expressions often indicate that he is not saying what he really knows is true. He repeats the party mantra really well but his eyes and phony smile say a lot. The Republicans are better served by Ed Rollins, Will Kane and David Gergen as their spokesmen. Come to think of it, they are the only Republican pundits who aren't mean and nasty.

    I too dislike Alex, he brings nothing to the table that interest me, he's too insulting and disrespectful to others.

    It is unfortunate that those Rural Virginians and rednecks are mostly the ones standing in the unemployment line and voting for Romney and the educated Elite and Fancy will vote for Obama. Very true.
