The Obama Supporters Are Quickly Disappearing

I thought if you don't vote for Obama you're a racist?

[VIDEO AT SITE] or HERE

I'm sure we will get Jeb Bush any moment now calling him an extremist.

Well, we all know Obama Girl is an extremist right?

If Obama Girl isn't gaga over Obama anymore you have to know the party is over.

I kid of course. She matters not one whit in this election or the last but you know what does? Donors:


Percentage decrease in donors who gave $200 to Barack Obama
in 2008 but have not yet in 2012, by state. The darkness
of the state corresponds to the percentage of drop-off donors. (BuzzFeed/Ky Harlin)

As Mitt Romney's campaign fundraising gathers steam, boosted by huge contributions to allied groups, President Barack Obama is unexpectedly struggling to keep pace — and he may be having the hardest time in the mountainous west, where moderate Democrats have made deep inroads in recent years.

As BuzzFeed reported last week, 88% of donors who gave $200 or more to Obama in 2008 have yet to give that amount to his campaign this cycle.

A deeper analysis of campaign finance data shows that the west has seen an especially high level of drop off in Obama donors. Oregon topped the list with a 91% decrease in donors giving at least $200—the amount required for contributions to be individually reported—and Colorado, Nevada, and Idaho were close behind.

Why? Just because Bryson had a seizure right after it was discovered that he lent BrightSource — of which he had been CEO — $1.6B in tax money? You are such a cynic.

Some critical states on that map are the darkest. Good news.

Mountainous West? Let me say before others do, disgruntled Mormons? Perhaps two reasons? 1)Obi was/is an economic nightmare. 2)Romney is a Mormon of course...

Rush played an Obama commercial today pandering to black voters with the “we have his back” theme. Like Rush said, their internal poll numbers must be truly horrific if they think they have to run ads clearly directed at black voters this early in the campaign.

But then, the lack of jobs and his endorsement of homos isn’t sitting very well...

As far as I’m concerned, they should line up a company to fumigate the WH when this socialist moves out. It will surely need it.

An Exorcism will be needed first.

Time to update a fallacy I learned when I took a logic class. It went:

American Indians are disappearing.
That man is an American Indian.
That man is disappearing.

Now, if I see an Obama supporter, I can think to myself:

Obama supporters are disappearing.
That person is an Obama supporter.
That person is disappearing.

He and his minders have no plans to move out.

And if elected and after the fumigation, Romney’s next move should be to get the bust of Winston Churchill from Britain back in our White House! This will erase 0bama’s lingering stench of hatred for whitey and help mend our relationship with Britain.

Very good point.

The world will be a much better place when 0bama is gone.

I would bet that he is looking for a new place to live. Maybe in Kenya?

Little clues here and there.

Oral history talk by Nadler last night on the Upper West Side: Flyers mention a constant supporter for ABO, along with the revered assemblymen etc. Mention of Romney does not draw boos and hisses.

Private person buys some airtime on WINS on Sunday (?) to persuade delegates to vote for Hillary at the convention—and calls for charging Holder and Obama with treason (second-hand information; I did not hear the ad myself; it had a person’s name attached to it, however, which the listener did not recall).

CLINTON WARNS DEMS And Democratic operative James Carville raised alarm today about Obama's economic message in a memo co- written for Democracy Corps (and first reported by POLITICO)."We will face an impossible headwind in November if we do not move to a new narrative, one that contextualizes the recovery but, more importantly, focuses on what we will do to make a better future for the middle class."

Mmmmmm.....it seems like only yesterday...................

Maybe his pal Raila Odinga has an extra hut available. The wookie will be less than thrilled, however.

The Obamas will live in NYC.
Baraq will undoubtedly get a tv show or two (PMSNBC) because he couldn’t bear to be out of the media for 20 seconds.

The kids will have to change schools, but I’m sure there’s something that rivals 34 grand a year Sidwell for them in NYC.

An exorcist would be more useful.

The reason they are behind them is: That is where they keep thier wallet.

I’m not so sure the Obama post-presidency will be pleasant for him after the monumental thrashing his party will experience this fall.

Face it, liberals never blame their policies, so Obama will be blamed. Even at this juncture, no one wants to be associated with him. He will be seen as a complete failure, a fraud, a charlatan, the butt of jokes.

The party will be forced to turn to more moderates like Evan Bayh and Mark Warner, so Obama will become a peripheral force to the left of where the party will need to go to survive.

I’d say his post-presidency will be a quiet one, because both sides of the ideological divide will want him off the stage.
