I sent a Mitt "Get Out the Vote" reminder to my Facebook friends -- yesterday.

Not quite as bad as crashing the economy without a backup plan. But keep trying.

are you talking about GW Bush? What economy did Obaam :"crash"? the one that had the drop in GDP of nearly 9% the quarter before he took over? he hasn't quite matched that level of "crashing", that's a new standard of crashing we haven't seen since the 1930's. How do you crash an already crashed and disabled economy by improving it?

I just read that that the name ORCA was on response to the Obama's campaign turn out model called Narwhal

But the Rmoney campaign's model only looked at people who were in their database who were identified GOP voters and who needed to be called and reminded to vote
The Obama model continued the 50 state strategy pioneered by Dr Dean
Everyone is a potential voter
Enthusiasm was down,no one thought young people would turn out
Well,surprise,they did
On Halloween the Obama campaign had buses ready at college campuses to bus people to polling places for early voting
After voting the volunteers interviewed the people who hated voted and gathered data
And signed up more volunteers
Apparently the Rmoney campaign didn't feel this was source of votes

So, it was kind of like the movie "Orca" that was a cheap "Jaws" knock-off?

"Orca" set the standard for cetacean-revenge action/dramas.
This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

They're allowed to bus people to polling stations?

In Chicago they're allowed to vote on behalf of dead people.

Traditionally,churches have done stuff like that,simon
As part of the GOTV strategy on election day,volunteers will drive people to polling places
