How I know Romney will win
self | 10/21/12 | self

Posted on 10/21/2012 6:25:27 PM PDT by ThunderSleeps

I now firmly believe Mitt Romney will win the election. Why? Because the economy is so bad... How bad? Today I happened to be in Malibu (long story) and saw a Romney bumper sticker...on a Prius...in Malibu CA. When things are that bad, that even west coast liberals are supporting the challenger, you know the incumbent is done.

Stupid swipe. Posting from a phone. I not J, I’m not one of the men in black,really, trust me... Although swipe correction does make me laugh from time to time. The other day I tried to swipe “obamacare” as one word and it came up as “insane” LOL...all too true.

In 2008 there were Obama bumper stickers and lawn signs everywhere here in Vermont, and also in Maine where we spend the summer.

Now I still see some Obama 2008 bumper stickers on cars, but very, very few Obama 2012 stickers.

And where I saw hundreds of Obama lawn signs, I have seen maybe one or two.

Now, it could be that Obama isn’t bothering to campaign in Vermont, because there’s no way he can lose it. But still, I’d expect these folks to be ordering signs and stickers on the internet. But no.

There are tons of signs for Schumlin for governor, Bernie for Senator, and so forth, but none for Obama.

I expect he’ll win the state, but the enthusiasm is gone.

When I dine with my liberal inlaws, they spend some time bashing Romney—last night it was Bindergate (which I pointed out was a rather trivial issue)— but they have virtually nothing to say about Obama.

“saw a Romney bumper sticker...on a Prius...in Malibu CA”

It’s a myth for every Freeper who don’t know Malibu, CA. I’m not bragging but I do go to some shindigs at the coast (I must be really good at hiding my political leanings) and there are surprisingly, right-wingers who live there. They just manage to shut up and let the loud-mouth liberals do the talking.

I’m in Hollywood and a Romney sticker is never found here. But guess what? My buds in the biz who are Pubbies’ are damn excited. They are also soooooo excited to come to work on November 7 just to see their lib moron co-workers cry their eyes out hehe

The crowds at Obama’s Rallies are falling off, They just had to borrow 20 million dollars for his campaign,even a few Newspapers are supporting Romney now, The kicker though is that Lyndsey Graham our little pretty Senator from the Carolina’s has now said he is backing Romney.He never said a word before now, but now the little turncoat sissy wants onto the train.

Romney will win.

I have a friend who lives in Hollywood and he texted me a picture of a car in his parking garage with a pair of Romney stickers. I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

Note that the Obama Campaign is in full attack mode, they wouldn’t be doing that if they were ahead.

And as every salesperson knows, desperation is a sure-fire way to turn OFF a prospect.

Wouldn't the BO signs be available at the local D county headquarters, the same place they'd be picking up the other candidates' signs?

I’m walking distance to the In N Out Burger in Hollywood AND the GLAAD center. My Gf and I walk the entire vicinity with our dog and never saw one. I have an idea your bud lives around Melrose, away from the center of Hollywood where I’m at.

I’m sure your bud does NOT work for NBC-Universal as that place is unbearable for conservatives to work in as he would be fired by the time he gets 50 feet of Universal..(I know)

Word has it that ‘0bama 2012’ bumper stickers in Southern California are not a common sight, unlike 2008. A one hour drive on their busiest freeway (405) in medium traffic only yielded ONE sticker.. ONE. Quite a contrast from 2008. I’m guessing 0bama’s support in Cal. will be down as much as 40% from 2008. There’s no telling what the Fascists will do in the North, however.

and......I install DirecTV. I drive all over Michigan. While in Kalamazoo the other day with my father, I drove through the North end of the city which is pretty much all other colors of skin that I dont have. I went two miles and saw 2 obama signs. That may not seem like much but back after Obama won the last election, that same stretch of road was littered with Obama signs which were given to them and also homemade. most of those signs stayed up for at least a year and were only taken down because the people had to mow around them or they just broke from the weather here in Michigan. There is a serious degradation in voter motivation in this presidential election cycle. Even my neighbors who are hard core libs have confessed they are not supporting The One this time. People are PISSED and that is a statistic you cannot judge in a poll. It just shows up in the count.

I happen to know the guy in Malibu who drives a Pious with a Romney sticker. (Long story.) He’s my cousin. He is the only registered Republican there and the Pious is... GASP! stolen from Berkeley.

It’s odd, I live in a conservative area, will go 58-59% Republican, yet I see Obama stickers all over. Don’t understand this but the local vote will not reflect it.

I am in Columbia, MO—fairly liberal college town (but not totally off the reservation) and it was plastered wall to wall with Obama crap in 2008. It was ridiculous. The entire town looked like a giant ad for Obama. This year, there are more Romney signs up. I have maybe, and I mean maybe seen 10-15 Obama signs in yards and a handful of bumper stickers.

In another surprise, even here, there are more Akin signs than McCaskill. I think Akin will still win, but had he not gaffed, he would have won by 10-12 points.

When Obama first took office, my Democrat neighbors said “You watch what he does with the economy!” Now they are never voting Democrat again because all the Democrats passed Obamacare and screwed them as seniors and they are upset with him over his suing AZ over illegals. Their son told them about the movie 2016. They know this man is dangerous and I was shocked when the wife told me she liked Newt Gingrich! I know they are not voting for Obama but now I am trying to get them to vote for Romney. Still working on it. They think he is too rich and does not care about the little people.

Actually, he lives in the apartment complex at the corner of Sunset and Vine. The Arclight Cinema is almost directly across the street from their building.

My friend is a senior official with UPS's Southern California customs office.

His nephews are both film students at USC and are making a film set in WW2 for their graduation project. Since I'm a military historian who specializes in WW2, they come to me with any technical questions. I was out there a few weeks back and they showed me some of their rough shots; it doesn't look too shabby. I can't wait to see the finished product.

There are no where near the volume of Obama stickers throughout S. California this time. They just aren’t there this time. Who wants to put a sticker on the car telling the world that they support this level of unemployment, this level of economic growth, etc.?

Right in front of the Arclight is the Hollywood Film School (loserville as USC film students call it) and I thought that corner bldg, was a retail-only bldg as right below where your friend is was the former Borders store I used to frequent (they always made sure every anti-Bush book was out front but I miss reading the mangas though).

Today I drove from Richmond,VA to Pittsburgh,PA...six hours on the road in four states and saw two cars with Obama stickers ( saw three with Romney). Last weekend was at the Richmond Folk Festival, which attracts many thousands, and saw only one Obama button worn by a gray-bearded troll. A couple of weeks before that I was at a popular weekend farmers market in the city of Richmond and the only Obama gear I saw was another old putz in an Obama t-shirt. Four years ago that market would have been Obama Central...something big is happening out there but I dare not put it in words.

The first floor is retail; I think there’s a Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Jersey Mikes, and the Wolfslair Biergarten on the first floor. The upper floors are apartments and only residents can get up there.

Oh yeah. I’d never say take it easy, we got this. We have to keep working, keep pushing. We are not just trying to defeat obama, but this whole insane big government socialist liberal nightmare. As long as there are history-ignorant fools and would-be fascists out there trying to push the liberal agenda, we need to keep fighting for our freedoms.

I read your homepage also.

Agree with the red and blue states separating. It would take no time before the blues were completely bankrupt - not that they aren’t already - and the reds would be humming along - why should we be dragging these people behind us just because they vote themselves the fruits of our hard work??? ARRGH

My liberal sister - who works hard and does ok - just found out recently that 40% of the people don’t pay taxes (she listens to NPR so how can she know anything?) and is pissed. She didn’t even know about the Obamaphone screecher in Cleveland until I told her or about the Obama voter who figured Obama would pay her mortgage and gas. Alas, it’s a lost cause since my sister votes in Seattle - the land of the lovely, brilliant Senator for Life, Patti Murray. :-(((

I’m trying and that’s my goal. Already have 15 TV producer credits so far this year for 7 shows (I won’t tell you which ones but 2 of them are on tonight) and if that happens, I will fire every liberal in the studio, believe me.
