Yet More This Can't Be Good For Obama

The 2008 Presidential election win for Obama was a culmination of a perfect storm.

The GOP brand was tarnished, some of this was fair, some of it was manufactured by the media.

Obama was viewed by enough people as being charismatic. A sad and pathetic indictment of the American electorate in which we often elect style over substance.

Race had a hand, he garnered a historically high proportion and turnout of the black vote.

He captured states that the Dems usually do not.

Finally, he was able to get a significant segment of the youth vote.

Read the following article.

Have the youth given up on Obama?

The relevant part of this article is that the employment rate of the 16 - 29 year old age group is only 55%. Just over half of the people from 16 - 29 have jobs. Anyone want to guess at what the rate is for minorities? They traditionally have a higher rate than whites so a large portion of these could be Hispanics and blacks. I noticed CNN did not put that in the article.

I have written at least three different posts on warning signs for an Obama re-election.

There are some who think that the next election is in the bag. Through cheating, media interference, and even incompetence on the right, the re-election of Obama is going to happen. I have a tendency to agree with all of the above with the exception that I think Obama faces a very significant hill to climb for re-election.

The problems keep mounting. More and more it seems as if the groups that put Obama over the top in 2008 are falling away a little at a time.

Remember, the GOP doesn't need Obama to lose all of the black vote, or Hispanics, young, women, moderate Democrats, etc. A few here and a few there will add up.

A swing of 2 - 3 percent of the electorate could be huge. It could mean the loss of key states like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan. Just as importantly, the traditional GOP states Obama took in 2008 will swing back to the GOP.

I am thinking the 2008 election is the GOP's to lose, what are your thoughts?

This Is What The Democrats Have To Offer?

The unemployment rate in South Carolina last month dropped to 9.9% from 10.5% in October. While this was a historic single month drop, it is still pushing double figures. What are Democratic lawmakers doing for this in the state?

Democratic Lawmakers Seek to Ban South Carolina Cheery Greeting Mandate


On one hand this can be dismissed as just a juvenile stunt, both parties pull idiotic stunts like this.

On the other hand, this is quite telling when it is coming form the Democrats. It can be viewed as highlighting two glaring issues they have had:

-The Democrats have been absolutely clueless when it comes to what to do about the economy.

-The Democrats have been showing a propensity in recent years to control speech.

So, is it idiotic, indicative about the Democratic Party, and a little scary all at the same time?

Salute: A Man Who Keeps His Word

Former Michigan star Braylon Edwards honors promise he made to 8th-graders in 2005

Read the article

As some may know, I am huge fan of the University of Michigan Wolverines.

Former player Braylon Edwards did the University, and all men, proud by standing by a promise he made in 2005.

That year he told a 100 8th graders that he would give them each $10,000 for college if they maintained a 2.5 grade point average, did 15 hours of community service, and remained exemplary students.

He is now keeping that promise to the 79 kids that met the criteria, even though it means it will cost this years salary.

Salute.

Quote Of The Week

"I stole your car,"

Michael Pratt


A 27 year old man in Florida went on a date with a woman. While at a movie, he told her he had to get something from her car. Concerned when he did not come back, she called him. He then informed her he had stolen her car.

Fortunately the genius is now in jail.

Only one question - would you give your car keys to this guy?

Pity The Atheists

Atheist Messages Displace California Park Nativity Scenes

Read the article.

I don't think about atheists much because they are not really worth thinking about. Quite frankly, I have always taken the "each to his own" approach. I think they are wrong but have the right to be so.

Read the above article though. There are times when they show themselves to be a miserable and pathetic lot.

The man sponsoring this attack on Christianity, and one cannot call it anything but that, went to a of trouble to do so.

This begs the question - why?

Why does he care what Christians think?

I have always wondered if they are truly secure in their beliefs. If they were, they would care less what Christians think. Or Buddhists, Jewish, Hindu, etc.

Why are they so bent on pissing on everyone else's beliefs? What are your thoughts?

Investigate The NYPD, Not The Justice Department

NYPD Pushes Back Against Calls for Probe Into Police Conduct at Occupy Wall Street Protests


We have a Democratic Congressman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y, calling for the Justice Department to investigate the actions of the NYPD while arresting the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

At the same time we have other Democrats in Congress ridiculing the investigation of Eric Holder and the very same Justice Department for their role in the death of a border patrol agent by Mexican drug dealers that they armed.

So let's recap: according to the Democrats we need the Justice Department to investigate police officers for arresting people who are effectively operating as domestic terrorists but we cannot investigate corruption in the Justice Department for arming drug dealers. Any questions?

I guess then it will not surprise anyone then that the Obama administration considers the attack at Fort Hood by an Islamic terrorist as work place violence.

What Does The Country Do With This?

Indiana 2008 Presidential Primary Election Fraud Probe Heats Up

Source

I have read about this issue before but it appears the investigation is becoming more and more significant and there is the real possibility that they will uncover fraud in the 2008 Presidential election.

It seems many of the signatures on petitions for placing Obama on the Indiana primary ballot were forged. It is is also possible that there were enough forgeries that he would not have in fact qualified to be on the ballot in Indiana.

If this is true, there are two very relevant questions.

-Is this the only incidence?

-What should be done about it?

As to the first question, I have to think it is highly unlikely that it is an isolated incident. One has to look no further than ACORN for the answer to that question.

There has been accusations starting during the campaign that there was fraud ongoing. The media and the rest of the left worked overtime to downplay the significance of this fraud. The story was always that yes, there was some fraud but it could never actually effect the outcome of an election. Right...

Finally, we have the constant push from the left to fight any kind of legislation requiring identification for voting. The charge form the left is that these rules are implemented to disenfranchise minority and lower-income voters. I have always believed it was a concerted effort to facilitate the fraud that has been rumored for years to be happening in Democrat-leaning districts. I think this investigation is going to go a long ways towards proving me right.

The second question is a little more complicated. I am not a constitutional expert, that would be Obama, but I am not sure this would disqualify him as President - yet. If this turns out to have occurred in other states, or leads to the discovery of fraud in the general election, we could be looking at a potential constitutional crisis.

What do you do with a sitting President that was not legally elected?

Reality is that it is not likely anything will happen in this term. I would think the only real remedy provided in the constitution is impeachment. That will not go through with the Senate controlled by the Dems. Also, there is the whole issue of who is then President. If Obama was elected fraudulently then Biden would have been too. We don't vote for Vice President, only President.

This is more likely to effect the next election, maybe even to the extent that Obama would be essentially forced to step down and not run for re-election. At the very least it would be virtually impossible for a President to be re-elected after winning a first term with fraud, whether they were involved in the fraud or not.

The most likely scenario is that this will lead to major congressional hearings next year. This will almost certainly be one can of worms the Democrats do not want opened. As I have said, there are years of anecdotal evidence of voter fraud on the part of the left. Paying the homeless with cigarettes and even cash for voting, going in to nursing homes and adult foster care homes and "helping" the residents fill out their ballots, people voting multiple times, the dead and infirm voting, and "finding" ballots in the trunks of cars (think Minnesota Senatorial election).

Stick around folks, this could get interesting.

Quote Of The Week

"Our kids are going to be fine,"..."And I always tell Malia and Sasha, look, you guys, I don't worry about you . . . they’re on a path that is going to be successful, even if the country as a whole is not successful. But that’s not our vision of America. I don't want an America where my kids are living behind walls and gates, and can’t feel a part of a country that is giving everybody a shot."

Barack Obama, November 30

I find this to be one of the more bizarre statements he has made.

It is removed from reality and at the same time is a glimpse at the elitism that is Barack and Michelle Obama. Bush retired to a ranch, the Obamas see themselves living in a gated community, removed from the peasantry.

What is that nonsense we always here about Democrats being for the little guy and the GOP for fat-cats?

What WIll The Feds Do?

Initiative would let illegal immigrants work in Calif. legally


So, the Justice Department is suing Arizona and Alabama for passing immigration laws that run contra to federal law. Will they sue California?

What are your thoughts?

Finally, reading this article, I saw this at the bottom.

The proposed initiative would apply to illegal immigrants who have lived in California for four years, have no felony convictions, are not suspected terrorists, pay a fee to administer the program, and can speak English or are learning it.

Why the hell can't someone speak English after living here for 4 years? If they can't, why in God's name should they expect to be hired for a job?

The Idiocy Of The Left - International Version

Amnesty International Under Fire for Demanding Bush's Arrest During Trip to Africa

Read the article

George and Laura Bush are in Africa marking World AIDS Day and raising awareness for breast and cervical cancer.

Amnesty International is effectively dismissing this work and calling for the host countries to arrest Bush for crimes against humanity.

So basically they are ignoring all of the work Bush has done for AIDS, something even hyper-partisan Barack "it's all Bush's fault" Obama lauded him for in a speech, and are demanding his arrest because he poured water in the face of a few murderous bastards.

I will say it yet again, liberalism is a mental disorder.

I was a curious though as to why this group is so bent on Bush's destruction. I poured over the article. Read it top to bottom, bottom to top, and side to side. It was a little obscure but I came up with this.

Amnesty International's U.S. chapter is backed in part by Bush-basher George Soros' Open Society Foundations, which under its prior name Open Society Institute has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the group. OSI donated $500,000 to Amnesty International USA in 2009 for an anti-torture campaign. At least another $250,000 was approved for the same project in 2008.

I keep thinking there is something to this. It's still alluding me, can you make the connection?
