Hey... Why Neither one Nor the other amongst the choices ?

I understand that this is technically possible... (If none of them above 270)(Probability=0,6%)

OK, you get your 12th amendment...
Which... If I understand correctly should lead to the following results :

President : Mitt Romney
Vice President... : Joe Bidden

:lol:

Please explain how/why I should care about the election of leaders in another country. And how my behaviour "says" otherwise.

Actually don't, just pretend you did to avoid wasting time.

If the polls are even slightly representative, Obama will get the second mandate.

Since the USA forbids third terms, be prepared for the real Obama---a second-term president has nothing to lose. This will be fun! (from the outside, of course! :))

Then don't forget to report back if you find a semi-sane place to live in, may want to consider it myself. :)

I still believe that the only reason there isn't a "None of the above" option on our ballots, is that it would almost always win...

Quote:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney repeated a false claim Thursday night that Chrysler Group may move all Jeep vehicle production to China, drawing criticism from the Obama campaign, which said the Michigan native had blatantly skewed a news wire story.

Romney***s comments came the same day that the Free Press reported that 1,100 new Chrysler workers will begin making the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs at a plant in Detroit next week.

***I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China,*** Romney said during a rally in Defiance, Ohio, before 12,000 cheering supporters, according to several reports. ***I will fight for every good job in America, I***m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it***s fair, America will win.***

Romney apparently was referencing conservative bloggers who misrepresented a Bloomberg story from Monday that discussed Chrysler***s decision to consider starting Jeep production in China, the world***s largest new-vehicle market.

Quote:

After riling Londoners over the summer with his critiques of the 2012 Olympics, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney managed to offend a different part of Europe with remarks he made at an event Thursday.

Italians reacted ferociously after local news agencies reported that Romney used the country as a negative example for what America's economy could become if it continues on its current trajectory.

Quote:

WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney's campaign, in a last-minute robocall, warns voters that President Barack Obama is hostile to the Christian faith.

The robocall, paid for by Romney's campaign, is explicitly aimed at Christian voters. A voter in Fairfax, Va. received it on Friday night, and passed it along to Shaun Dakin of StopPoliticalCalls.org.

Not anymore. Cuba's government has officially granted all Cubans the right to travel. Not that most could afford it, but that is another story.
