7 to 2
We live in Oklahoma and had to put up with a picture ID to vote this last time. It took Marcella and I over an hour to vote. Not bad, but definitely longer than it took for us to vote the last time. It took my youngest daughter 2 hours to vote. You could spot the Obama voters from a distance. My oldest daughter had to vote late and it took her 3 hours after the polls closed to get her vote in. I had the last laugh, though.

My Obama despising brother in Bangkok assured me that Obama was going to lose after the first debate. I had already called the election before the debate. Sure I rubbed it in. What do you expect from a guy who put up with all the Republican, Obama hate material for a year before the vote. I laughed my way to the polls because my family all voted Obama and it was 7 Obama votes to his one Bangkok, Romney vote.

My other brother said he would bring a coffin down with black roses after Obama got defeated and place it in my front yard.

"Dale," he assured. "It is going to be Romney by 6 points." Any idea who he was listening to. Well, " I didn't get the coffin or the roses and, again, it was 7 to 2 here in Oklahoma, in favor of the Obama platform.

It took 2 weeks before I received an email from Thailand and took a week before I got a call from Florida. Me, I laughed my way to the polls during the presidential election. How about you?
