I don't actually care if you reveal yourself or not, but please quit pretending you've been completely up-front with us about your identity. If you want us to know who you are, then post a link already and be done with it. This whole "you can Google me" routine is tiresome. I mean, you are aware there have been and still are many people -- both real and imaginary -- named John Henry, right?

Could you show me where I said that?

I think that I actually said

I saw a poll that he will not even carry Cook County.


I did not say that my assessment is that Obama will not carry Cook County. I said that I saw a poll that said that. I did not even say that I believe the poll. In fact I said the opposite:

It's only a single poll but we will likely see more confirming or refuting it in coming weeks.


So perhaps you could stop making stuff up that I never said.

Perhaps you could even address the issue of why you think Obama will win?

Naaaaahhh. That would be too much to expect of you. Sufficient to just keep chanting the mantra "Obama will win. Obama will win. Obama will win" over and over without thinking about it.

I have done that previously. Someone even did Google me and find me. I just posted a link to NIOT where I have been writing daily for 13 years. I just posted my phone#

So if you can't find me, shame on you.

Try this link http://www.amazon.com/Google-For-Dummie ... or+dummies

BTW: Just to be really pedantic I have never suggested people "Google" me. I do not like Google and do not recommend that people use it.

I suspect you will find that I said "search" for me. I recommend Pravatlee which searches both Google and Bing but does it anonymously and allows me to use a dummy location.

The poll didn't say it either, so perhaps you could stop making things up that polls don't indicate. The article I found regarding the Cook County poll suggests that Obama is still expected to carry Cook County and Illinois.

Where's the poll you saw?

And it's a pretty weak state of affairs if the public looks at a headline and starts to make their political assessment. I could care less what Newsweek or most reporters think. I DO care about the facts that they report which seems to be few and far between these days. You, of course, have no problem believing the opinion of Sarah Palin that 'ol Joe will step down.

And the fact that you read Drudge...

Nuff said.

I certainly never suggested I couldn't find you. I never looked. I don't care.
What I said was the "go and look for me" game is tiresome.

Don't forget his assertions that Hitler was pushing socialism and Joe McCarthy is a deeply misunderstood American patriot.

Oh, and Mr. Henry, "Newsweek" is not a person and therefore cannot "think" anything. Naill Ferguson is a person and he wrote an article that the Newsweek editorial board decided to use as their cover. They probably knew it would sell well because both liberals and conservatives would want to read it.

By the way, John Henry, what brings you to a messageboard in Madison, Wisconsin? It seems like a strange location for you to set up camp.

John Henry of Fajardo, PR, a principal of changeover.com? BTW, Fajardo is a beautiful spot! I've spent some time at El Conquistador, a gorgeous hotel/casino there.

I am sitting here scratching my head. What exactly is it that you are complaining about then?

I've posted pretty much everything but my latest proctologist's report here on the Forum what more do you want?

I've posted enough personal information that you can verify that I am a real person. What more do you want?

I've posted enough information here that you could verify which John Henry I am if doing a search. What more do you want?

Do you really want my proctology results? (Quite healthy, thanks for asking)

Let me know what you want to know and I'll try to provide it. Otherwise stop flapping your gums.
