I'm not taking this story (from Glenn Beck's Blaze) seriously at all -- except as a reminder that what it predicts about Obama could actually happen on Romney's side:
CHICAGO SOURCE TELLS AUTHOR BRAD THOR: OBAMA CAMPAIGN PLANNING TO PROCLAIM EARLY VICTORY TO 'DEMORALIZE ROMNEY SUPPORTERS'I don't see the Obama people doing this. I can absolutely imagine the Romney people trying it. I can imagine Fox News attempting to distort what's going on today in order to encourage late voters to turn out for Romney and join a wave that doesn't really exist. I think Team Romney's con game is going to continue throughout today, into the evening, and even beyond if we don't have a clear winner as of tonight. And, hell, it may continue even if we do. I'm not sure Romney will concede even if it's obvious to all but the most fervid right-wingers that he's lost. I don't put qanything past him.
New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor, based in Chicago, tells TheBlaze that the Obama campaign may be planning to preemptively announce victory in the presidential election based on early voting numbers in an attempt to "demoralize Mitt Romney supporters."
Citing a "very solid source" in Chicago, Thor says the Obama campaign is looking to make it appear to voters that they have "this thing sewed up and are less than 24 hours to victory," according to his source....
While Thor can't reveal his source, he told TheBlaze multiple times that the source is very reliable....
Brad Thor writes very successful thrillers, but he doesn't know any more about anything that your Fox-obsessed uncle. That doesn't preventing him from being offered multiple opportunities to feign expertise in the right-wing media. His latest tweet publicizes his most recent TV appearance:
In 2007, on Glenn Beck's TV show (which was on CNN at the time), he offered this recommendation for America's future course in Iraq:
"You have to let loose the dogs of war, let these guys do what they need to do to get the job done. The fact is that after we did Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and I'm not saying that's what we ought to do now, but everybody respected us. Nobody messed with us."In May of 2010, Thor had an "exclusive" on the Breitbart site Big Government claiming that Taliban leader Mullah Omar had been captured. It was, um, not true. He is still at large.
