(Vanity) Seriously,Will New York & California Vote For Obama Despite $4.50 & $5.00 Gas ?

Posted on 03/17/2012 10:34:18 PM PDT by Liberals_R_BiPolar_Turkeys

Can you imagine if the deep blue states are paying between $4.00/$5.00 for a gallon of gas come October and yet they will still vote for Obama? And what if the real polls show Obama's approval in those states under 50%? You know if Obama is under water in the deep blue states,the thugs will rig the election. Especially in Illinios where Obama could lose. If New York and Cally still vote in Obama come November, safe to say both states have gone to hell?

California will vote for him with $100 a gallon gas.

If it is a choice between Obama and ObamaLite, Obama wins. It will not matter how much the price of gasoline is - it will happen. A Republican can carry California, and New York.

If gas if $4.50 or $5.00 or more, he will lose votes in these blue states, but will still carry the bluest such as New York and California.

Last time, he got over 60% of the vote in Calif. Suppose anger over gas or other issues cuts him down to 55%. He still would carry California comfortably.

Or, look at another way, if Obama were in trouble in states such as N.Y., Calif, or Illinois, you could be looking at a Reagan size landslide for the GOP candidate.

Too many conservatives have left California for greener pastures politically.

The worst kind of Rats are in charge of all portions of the California state government.

Illegals are handled with kids gloves.

I live here, no Republican is going to win California.

California will need to destroy itself before it can get back to the glory days when it used to be conservative or even Republican.

Obama’s approval will hover around 40% right thru October, therefore it’s gonna be closer to 35% in some swing states. Odds are he will poll around 50% in those big blue states,and they will rig the elections there,even if they have to allow voter fraud. It better not happen in Philly! Does anyone actually trust those districs that allow black panthers to gaurd the entrances with bully sticks and baseball bats?

YES. PARTY-AFFILIATION above all else, including country or self. Besides, when life guards are paid six figures with LIFETIME PENSIONS, who cares about gas prices?

I live in California and the answer to that question is unfortunately..yes..this state would vote for Obama no matter what..its overrun with progressive whack jobs and SEIU..are there a few Conservative areas left, absolutely, but the rest of the state is basically, well, Greece West coast style..Reagan wouldn’t recognize this state if he were alive today

New York loves its current governor, Andrew Cuomo.

Not one in a hundred know his critical role as HUD Director under Clinton in suing the banks to issue vast numbers of worthless mortgages to people with no intention or ability to repay them This created the Housing Bubble that began The Great Recession.

The democrat controled mass media keeps the peons ignorant.

New Yorkers can walk, take subways, trains, etc.

Californians, though, COULD get oil at the wellhead or tar pits of La Brea, but apparently prefer Leaf-frogging.

And the Carmelites could micromanage themselves into permitting only Segwey traffic, I suppose. Do Segweys go uphill? Maybe the San Franciscans can reinvent the brockabrella and turn it into a solar array windmill whirlygig.

But the folks in Merced are done for. They should start building tunnels and dry canals that can run by pulleys.

NY and CA will continue to vote Democrat; to do otherwise would be to confess their errors, and they are too proud to admit they fail. Cuomo and Brown are proof that they are not done with liberalism, not by a long shot.

For deep Blue states suffering from high gas prices, the Democratic playbook will emphasize union solidarity, liberal social issues, and Obama’s efforts to rein in oil companies and find alternatives to oil. This will hold the line and carry those states for Obama in 2012, but the effort required and the fraying at the edges of the Democratic coalition will take a toll in other races. And no matter what happens to Obama, 2012 will not otherwise be a good year for the Democrats and 2014 will be a disaster for them across the board if Obama is reelected.

Obama could nuke LA and NYC then strafe the survivors and still carry California and NY.

They cannot make it without other peoples financial hesitance.

Speaking of Philadelphia, I hear that Pennsylvania just passed a voter ID law, which will be in effect for the Nov. 2012 election. We’ll see if Eric Holder decides to file suit against PA on this one, and on what grounds he would do so.

The Justice Dep’t intervened against South Carolina’s voter ID law because of that state’s discrimination in the old days, however, Pennsylvania has no such history of such discrimination, and is not covered as such under the Voting Rights Act. So we’ll see if the liberals file a lawsuit anyway against PA in this election cycle.

Yes, because when you add up:

Unemployment checks for 99 weeks
+Food stamps for any food item desired
+Rent subsidies
+Heat subsidies
+Medicaid covering unlimited medical bills
+Free transportation to medical facility
+free translators if you can’t speak English
+aid to dependent children
etc
etc
etc
IT IS LOT MORE THAN $5 gas.

Yes, sadly the part of the brain in Liberals which connect the “Cause Lobe” and the “Effect Lobe” is more or less permanently disconnected so they will have no problem pulling the lever for Obama for four more years of “Glorious Change we can’t believe is not called Socialism yet”.

Furthermore, someone could sell California on Delta Smelt teams to pull barges and a unique, Tarzan vine system through the Redwoods. Yosemite? Well, that will be bear driven or permitted only to parasailors and John Muir wannabes. Eureka and Crescent City could convert the Japanese tsunami remains into electricity for the electric vehicles. Mendocino will not be bothered with mere vehicles when they can use personal helicopters powered by Condors and whatever eagles 0bama doesn’t kill off. San Diegoans and other coastal cities can leash up the whales and sharks for short transports. And Napa will no longer export anything because everything will be powered with wine.

Everyone else not mentioned will die anyway, even though their names will never be removed from voter rolls. Maybe someone will cut the thumbs and forefingers off, and freeze them, for use in vote verification or receipt of EBT and other benefits.

Don’t tell anyone that there really are still gold and certain gemstones in California. Most Californians who don’t know about this can’t read, though, so putting it in print isn’t too much of a tale to tell.

YES. The only way they would not vote for him is if he made abortions illegal, and he killed gay marriage in the states that have passed it. Other than that nope, the lemmings will line up as usual.

Yes, because they will blame Bush and the evil Big Oil.

It can’t be the Magic Negro to blame. It has to be a conspiracy executed by Big Oil on orders from Karl Rove and funded by Haliburton in order to bring down poor innocent Hussein Obama.

Of course. They will blame evil ‘Big Oil’ and speculators while the divine one will shoulder no responsibility. Obama has already started on this theme with the ranting about ‘subsidies’ that oil companies supposedly have which are tax deductions. Tax deductions which encourage investments rather than discourage it. Tax deductions which corporate America in general enjoys. He will soon go into their ‘unconscionable profits’ with calls for a ‘windfall tax’ despite their net profit margins being low relative to other industries which they make up for with volume. Again, never mind that your cell phone company makes higher profit margins, high risk high skilled low margin oil produhis deadbeat voters. Of course nothing will be mentioned about the price fixing/supply fixing OPEC which includes the largest oil companies (state owned) in the world - by far. Our oil companies are price takers and are doing a valuable service by providing high paid American jobs while increasing the supply of oil to the American consumer.

This afternoon I overheard a couple of older black guys discussing the "war for oil" and deployment to fight in this war, and resentment over that. I heard them denounce someone (name not heard) as a "billionaire" but did not hear Bush's or BO's name mentioned.

Not so. Even when Presidents are strong, Congress retains the power of the purse. And countries can and do pull back from the brink, as Britain did under Thatcher and the US did under Reagan.

It is not California that votes for BHO it is the San Francisco Bay area and the Los Angles Basin (and one or two other small areas) that vote for him, the rest of CA vote Republican. If you look at the county red/blue charts it becomes obvious that those two areas are controlling everything that happens here.
