Imagine If Obama Loses By One Vote, Liberals Warn
CNS News ^

Imagine If Obama Loses By One Vote, Liberals Warn Thursday, October 23, 2008 By Susan Jones, Senior Editor

(CNSNews.com) – Imagine if Sen. Barack Obama loses the presidential election by one vote, and imagine if you were the person who meant to vote for him but never made it to the polls.

Pretend it just happened. That’s the thrust of a new video from a liberal, pro-Obama group.

As polls show the presidential race tightening in swing states such as Pennsylvania and Florida, MoveOn.org is pressing a get-out-the-vote message with a “funny, scary video” showing people “what it might look like if we lose the election by a single vote.”

The video includes the name of the email recipient, making it look like Susan Jones (in my case) was the non-voter who cost Obama the election.

“U.S. elections are always close, but the nation was shocked Tuesday night to see John McCain defeat Barack Obama by a single vote,” intones a mock anchorman in the MoveOn.org video.

“For many, shock soon turned to outrage as The New York Times revealed the identity of the particular non-voter responsible for Obama’s loss,” the “anchorman” says, as the non-voter’s name appears in font on the “TV screen.”

“In just a few short days, this private citizen has become a national pariah,” the anchorman says. The video explains that police take the non-voter into protective custody, it shows Obama supporters letting loose with bleeped invective, and it includes soundbites from President Bush and Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly (favorite targets of the left) thanking the non-voter for being patriotic.

Memo to liberals ... doesn’t matter to me if he loses by 1 or 1 million. As long as he loses.

As far as the implied threats go, the scum are welcome to come storming onto my property if you like ... but there will be significant resistance of a lethal variety waiting.

Ditto. And, using threats like this just shows us why they shouldn't be anywhere close to the legitimacy of gov't power and the legal use of deadly force to impose their will.

IMPOSSIBLE LIBERALS! Listen to your MSM and leaders. The Messiah is up by tens of points. No need to even show up and vote if you have anything better to do. It's in the bag.

blah blah blah. what would really happen if obama lost by one vote is that there would be riots, lawsuits, and boxes and boxes of obama votes found.

then if we’re lucky, there’d be an unbiased recount where a couple million obama fake votes were tossed out

It's not even logical. The majority of voters puts McCain in office. And when the majority finds out about it, the majority get all upset at the one guy who wasn't involved, because he should have been involved enough to stop the majority of people from getting what they wanted.

These people are brain-dead.

If this thing comes down to pregnant chads, it is going to make Florida 2000 look like a church social.

I suspect that the last page of the Obama playbook is going to look a lot like the last page of the Odinga playbook, if it comes to that...

It won’t make any difference by what amount he looses by. As long as he looses. But the fact remains, when he looses, there will be riots. Los Angeles, Oakland, Detroit, etc, police departments are already gearing up for the problems. This tells me that there is a better than good chance that Obama will loose, but Republicans need to keep the faith and get out and vote. Don’t assume it’s going to happen with your vote.

As for people taking to the streets to riot......I can’t believe what this country has come to. Seems like some have turned back animals.

So let me get this straight... moveon.org/0bama thugs are threatening voters with violence if 0bama loses?
At least they portrayed Democrat brownshirts correctly...
But notice how at their very core, they believe they are entitled to win. That someone they should win even if they got fewer votes. That even though McCain would have more voters, his voters do not count. Only 0bama's jackbooted supporters do.

It will not matter one bit if it is 1,100,1,000 or 1 million. The libtards will still claim it was stolen.

In addition to which, if he lost by one vote, he would have needed two more people to vote for him in order to win, not just one. That would make it a tie.

Plus, if McCain wins, we won’t have that government agency that tracks you and knows how you would have (should have?) voted and puts the noncompliant into “protective” custody...

0bama already has “volunteer brownshirts” out there, and he’s said nothing to tell them to curb their activities.

Also, anyone else find it curious that 0bama opposes the Castle Doctrine? It makes his “volunteers” nervous to know they might meet armed resistance.

Not only do they show fake news coverage of what will happen if Obama loses, the video has newscasters using my name, saying, "If Karen Jones would have voted for Obama this would not be happening." Then they cut to man on the street interviews with confusion and panic in the background, interviewing people who say, "I am so mad at Karen Jones. She is a @#$%&!"

I imagine Obama losing by 1,000,000 votes or more, and being so humiliated and crushed in defeat that we never hear from the son of a bitch again. Furthermore, LIEberals, and their media propagandists are so stunned by the defeat that they are forced to look at their own role in being so blatantly in the bag for Obama and brainwashed by the cult of personality BS, that they all do the only honorable thing ... sepuku.

Yes they are very afraid that a majority of voters will not vote for a socialist, defeatist, and left wing liberal who stayed for 20 years in the Church of a hateful, racist, and anti-American Reverend called Jeremiah Wright.

“...I suspect that the last page of the Obama playbook is going to look a lot like the last page of the Odinga playbook, if it comes to that...”

So long as they burn down their own neighborhoods, I don’t see a problem. It’s kind of like spontaneous urban renewal. However, if they choose to come to my neighborhood with that foolishness then they will have a big problem. I would strongly suggest that they have their final affairs in order before coming.

What if the Socialist thug wins by about the same amount of questionable votes/voters that Acorn, and other left-wing groups, registered, a staggering 200 THOUSAND in Ohio alone?

Should WE Conservatives and Republicans,and others who put COUNTRY FIRST, and who are civilized, and are normally too busy working and raising our families to engage in such activities, RIOT then?

Maybe we should.

“The video explains that police take the non-voter into protective custody, it shows Obama supporters letting loose with bleeped invective”

Wow! The Obama thuggocracy revealed! Is this an implied threat of violence? If someone tells me “Well, you can walk down the sidewalk in front of my house, but I can’t promise to be able to restrain myself from punching you in the nose”
isn’t that assault?

What’s revealing is the narcissism and immaturity implicit in this entire line of reasoning. Were the imagined hypothetical to transpire, it would imply that roughly equivalent numbers of voters had voted for McCain and Obama, but that because the “other guy” won, the barely outnumbered (and apparently very petulant) losers feel entitled to vent their rage on a hapless citizen who did nothing more than exercise their freedom as an American not to vote if that’s the way they feel. We can infer from this that American liberties will be in jeopardy unless we vote the “correct” way.

Of course, the imagined hypothetical CANNOT transpire as depicted. Even if the electoral-vote-deciding state was lost be 1 vote, there would never be a single identifiable non-voter responsible for this outcome. Unless every single eligible adult in that state is registered and every single one of them (save one) cast a vote, there would always be hundreds of thousands or millions of “non-voters” to blame for Obama’s loss. Thus, the only people who could be swayed by such an ad would have to be incredibly stupid or ridiculously paranoid. I guess we can infer that the Democrats have enough such individuals within their ranks to merit this mindless approach to voter motivation.

Did the Democrats not learn anything from SoreLoserman? Whatever happened to the idea of being gracious in defeat, shaking the hand of the opponent who beat you and wishing them good luck?

You're right. Obama will take a page from his buddy (and "cousin" of the same African tribe) Odinga's playbook and call for rioting and violence, until he get's his way. Odinga lost by over 200,000 votes, and still, was willing to unleash the violence. So to will Hussein.

There's already people out there who are prepared to riot no matter what the outcome is.

These bottom-feeding scumsuckers derive a sick, perverted pleasure out of destroying someone else’s property, and an election is as good an excuse as any for them.
