Can underdog Barack Obama catch Newt Gingrich?

“I’m absolutely confident we’re going to win this thing,” Barack Hussein Obama whistled past the graveyard and told a gathering of 50 people at Spike Lee’s house the other night.

Apparently Barack hasn’t read the polls in quite a while, but then again neither have the likes of Karl Rove Ann Coulter or George Will.

Just a month ago in a Christmas week release designed to make certain it was lost, Gallup unveiled an ugly picture for Barack Obama and the Republican establishment.

Gallup says there is not only a high level of enthusiasm for throwing Obama out (64% of conservative Republicans are very enthusiastic about voting next November) but there is an alarmingly low amount of energy within Obama’s core voters – “non- White” enthusiasm is at just 32%.

Also included in Gallup’s report based on its findings in Obama’s 12 absolutely must have states, was news that must tighten Karl Roves stomach muscles.

While they found Willard Romney leading Barack Obama 48/43, it also found Newt Gingrich leading Obama 48/45 in a general election matchup.

Adding to Obama’s woes are the sharp drop in the number of voters who self-identify as Democrats and the increase in the self-identified Independents. In 2008 the electorate was 35% Democrat. Today that number has fallen to 30%. While this was happening the number of Independents has grown from 35% to 42%.

South Carolina’s results dispelled all of the Republican establishment’s arguments about “Only Romney can beat Obama.”

In South Carolina which allows crossover voting, Gingrich won in every category of...

Can’t wait to see Newt make Obama start crying in the debates.

I didn’t watch the speech last night. Fortunately, I had an episode of Downton Abbey on my “to do” list. But I did see Hussein leave the chamber and the disgusting lovefest that ensued from Dems. in the audience.

I feel sick. While the GOP is floundering and trying to come up for air, BO’s handlers are executing a carefully drawn up reelection plan that has been in place for a long time, probably since he took office. The lines have been drawn in the sand, mostly by David Plouffe and Valerie Jarrett.

Contributions for millionaire/billionaires? Check.
Remember the foreign donations for $200 each that were impossible to track? Super PACs who can give unlimited amounts? Soros and his buddies? Hollywood?

Class warfare strategy: Check. And if my stupid “moderate” friends are any judge of what’s come, it’ll work.
Hate the rich! You betcha.
The only reason? Jealousy.

Unprincipled thug tactics in place: Check.
Experts Axelnuts and Deadfish at the helm.
Acorn(under another name) and other community organized fraudulent fronts for the Kenyan’s relection? Check.

Racist card ready to be played? Check. It worked in ‘08. It’s still effective in order to bring out the “white guilt” vote getting base that they need.

The bottom line is that there are some really, really stupid people, Mark Levin’s category of “drones”. And will they take the time to inform themselves like we do? Will they realize that another four years of this administration will destroy our country as we’ve known it?

I predict not and that’s why I’m depressed.
Pray for our Republic.

Maybe he could reach across and try to make a grab as he’s headed out of the White House for the last time. Thanks Oldpuppymax.
