If the poll says obama will lose the liberal-wackjobs will argue that the numbers are fishy...  if the poll says obama will win the conservative-wackjobs will say it is fishy...

If an independent thinker says all the polls and numbers are fishy... the wackjobs will blindly assume and ignorantly characterize the independent thinker as an extremist from other side...

I am seeing it around -160 right now. What are your current thoughts on this?

It means if u like Romney, bet it now to get the best odds.  And if u want to throw away ur money on Obama, wait until October and it will be a PK line.

Unfortunately, it appears that RuPaul has just as good of a shot as Ron Paul does at this point.

Currently the odds are quite a bit different, since you bought up a bunch of DEM -200

DEM -147

REP +133

 

I think you have a bunch of losing futures on your hands lol... time will tell.

Why do people quote non-market odds?  At Intrade, Obama is 54% (-117) and Romney is 41.5 (+140).  Yes, there is a gap because it's theoretically possible someone else could win.

not funny to some... they hang their hat on things like this...

It is even funnier that the alias/alias supporters run from any bet that is "putting their money where there mouth is" on a gambling website...

basically rendering any BS they post as simply hot air...

 The Republican Party feeds off the middle class and is not going to share any of the riches that they acquired off their backs.  And Ron Paul speaks for the common man and is a threat to their power, so the brilliant man is written off as nuts.  When in reality, he basically stands for everything the Republican Party should be emulating.  

And notice that the radio and TV personalities that denounce Paul are also hoarding their millions while duping the public with their warped beliefs.

There are actual books that off the line, which is what people are quoting.

The irony is that more independents  and democrats would lean towards paul... but they instead run romney because like you said about power it does not matter if it is romney or obama, they keep their hands on the money and the power (and get to indulge in whine/girl every second if obama wins)....

I guess the fox "news", beck, rush group are in on it too... hannity has been against paul even before he ran for president 2012...  check this out

Obama is at 53.8% at Intrade.

Obama is (-171) at Pinnacle.

But a bargain at (-200)

Obviously a political line is gonna jump all over the place. It doesn't take garbage to move this stuff.

you are thinking like a gambler

to respond to the alias/supporters, you need to think like someone that does not bet or know how to honor a bet... at least that is what history shows us about these bob alias/supporters...

the site seems to be aware of the pattern

Perhaps you missed this... perhaps you are running scared from the reality of an actual bet...


So... are you going to take the bet?  or just be a blow hard talking crap and never put your money where your mouth is? 


The site knows however that bob aliases/supporters are pathological liars and cant honor the bets they make...  At least that is what we all have seen with with the woop alias...

typical cut/paste alias...  blah blah blah...

but then disgrace yourself by not being able to follow basic gambling etiquette and honoring a bet on a site made up of gamblers that know

the site seems to be aware of the pattern

Right. But you have a "pro" making a bet 10 + months in advance.

What does that tell you?

Note: Gallup daily track of WH head-to-head remains static. Romney 46-Obama 45. No major movement in weeks

Why would someone want to bet me? I mean, if they're so confident, why not just place the bet with their book.

How bizarre.

I think it has to do with two things...

1. perhaps getting better odds with one that appears to be blindly overconfident in obama losing...

2.  To try to expose you for not being honorable... a key trait in aliases...


what I will say is that I agree with you that -200 does not seem like a good value...  If we are talking simply about numbers knowing when to buy on lines makes sense...

So I will simply ask you... what odds would be odds that would be a good value to bet on obama?

For you, pick.....nose pick.......covers nose

obama voters relying on blind faith and fraud at this point. How deluded would one have to be to think that his presidency has helped the country? So the basic attitude of the obama voter is, darn all else, just send me my check.
