Posted on 07/20/2009 11:17:06 AM PDT by kddid
For all the attention generated by last year's presidential race, census figures show the share of eligible voters who actually went to the polls in November declined from 2004.
According to the data, more older whites opted to stay home compared with 2004, citing little interest in supporting either Barack Obama or John McCain.

Thanks you old coots!
RINOs and Liberals are not interesting to conservatives...
“According to the data, more older whites opted to stay home compared with 2004, citing little interest in supporting either Barack Obama or John McCain.”
No kidding. Let’s nominate Mitt now. That will bring them back in droves. (sarc)
Maybe they were intimidated.
There were lots of reports of blacks driving around and making a big show of writing down addresses of people with McCain signs in their yards.
I voted for the RINO McCain. But I would not do so again. The GOP has to understand that the conservative base, and the old coots who make up a part of that base, are not willing to show up and vote for someone who is distasteful.
I'll vote for a Conservative next time, or I will stay home. And don't blame me if Obama gets a second term -- blame the Republican Establishment for pushing Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. There's your problem right there.
Can you blame them, with the Black Panthers People’s Party providing “security” at the polling places.
Wonder how they are going to feel about that non-vote as Obama proceeds to gut medicare.
Here is the dirty little secret the RNC refuses to admit to.
Their attempts(McCain, Rudy, Mitt, Huckster) at putting a RINO on the ballot(McCain) succeeded and those who decided it was “a bridge too far” to vote for someone like McAmnesty stayed home.
And then there are the idiots on FreeRepublic who would rather blame those who were basically disenfranchised by the selection of McCain instead of the real problem: the RNC leadership and elites. Pull your head out of the sand.
Let’s put the blame where it belongs, Feminist women:
“Unmarried women supported Barack Obama by a 70-to-29 percent margin, and they voted for Democratic House candidates by a similar margin 64-to-29 percent.”
But, you know, I can’t imagine a McCain White House would be as bad or worse than The Obama White House.
McCain wouldn’t be Reagan, but he sure as Hell wouldn’t be a socialist as is Mr. Obama-Jama.
Uninformed yutes and colored people got us in the situation we’re in now.
The Liberal Media needs to be destroyed.
Yeah! I hope you know I was kidding in the earlier post. :-)
Sounds like psychological warfare from the left - they start spreading such B.S. rumors, and it sounds reasonable to some.
I believe it is likely that the system is already corrupted too far.
Coleman/Franken proved it. EVERY decision by the ACORN elected secretary of state went in Franken’s favor, resulting in the stolen election.
And if Obama(’s)care has anything to do with it, they won’t be around by ‘12!
Limbaugh mentioned dragging him over the finish line several times, and it was absolutely true. Whenever we’d get any momentum going, he’d do the exact thing necessary to destroy it. I’ve said before that the “Look, the Dems are even WORSE!” tactics of the Republicans would backfire on them. Whenever McCain moved grudgingly to the right, his numbers improved. If the old coot had gone home three weeks before the election and not done any interviews he’d probably be in the WH now. Every day I ask, “Lord, why is Barack 0bama President,” and follow up with, “Thank you that John McCain isn’t.” BTW, yes I voted for Sarah and McCain happened to be on the ticket, so don’t say I was the reason 0bama got elected.
How would you your grandmother feel? Assuming you weren’t escorting her?
What? That didn't work out?
Well, this older white got out and voted. Didn’t particularly like my choices, but I tried to stop the mess that is now upon us, thanks in part to those sit-at-home know-it-alls.
As far as I’m concerned, anyone who sits out an election also forfeits the right to gripe for four years. That includes a lot of self-absorbed FReepers.
BSF’s - bitter single females. (The counter to anyone making a statement about “angry white males”.)
Those that state “a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle”, but, in overwhelming numbers vote for the government to be in the role of husband - provider and protector.
I this is a cover story to hide the fraud by ACORN.
Thanks, folks! Appreciate the patriotism! /SARC!
hysterical comparison and spot on
Proving geezers are worthless.
UAW money and UAW votes put the Chicago Turd in the White House.
NEVER AGAIN will I buy a UAW product.
If conservative men won’t marry them, they still have to make a nest of some kind. Women don’t go it alone.
Hey punk. Run a friggin candidate who isn’t half dead and demo-lite and maybe you can get us excited.
For the record, I voted for McCain and then ran outside and puked.
Send you damned message to the RNC.
Then get off your butt now and work to get a conservative nominated. We almost have ford, jr in the Senate from TN because Bryant and Hillary split the conservative vote, so people such as your self would not vote for Corker since he wasn’t a conservative. So, instead of saying “if they don’t listen to me, I will not vote but obama’s second term will not be my fault” find a conservative get out and work for that person
I live in MA. ‘nuff said.
They’ve been lied to, though, and told that they MUST make it on their own. And this is why they vote for a husband.
God’s natural laws and plans are thwarted to the detriment of the person doing the thwarting.
These laws and consequences are as immutable as His physical laws.
That’s nice. Many of these folks will be dead by 2012.
Uninformed yutes and colored people got us in the situation were in now
that along with folks who stayed home. That should teach us NOT to ever stay home on election day. I would rather win with a “Republican-LITE” opposed to let them with with a democrat of any flavor - PERIOD. From a coaching stand point a win is a win no matter how you look at it.
Yep. (Single) White females, whether in the blue collar wards (especially in the northeast and upper midwest) or in latte land voted for Obamanation.
Thank the idiots that gave them the choice between McCain and Obama. Both disasters in making. McCain may have been the lesser evil, but he was still a terrible choice.
Based on this data, I demand tax payer funded ACORN spend at least half of their time and money in rural white areas registering voters who are more likely to vote conservative and getting them out to vote.
Let’s see how long the mods leave up the monkey picture.
For some reason they pull all of mine...
I don't believe in conspiracy theories and don't think anyone with a legitimate shot at the presidency voluntarily gives it up, but it's hard to see what McCain could have done different to intentionally blow it.
This was partially offset by a record number of Mexican citizens and wise Latinas illegally voting in the US election.
Don't forget the elected state and county election officials, and the various offices controlling voter registration. Democrats heavily target these positions to assist with their vote fraud and to run interference against fraud complaints and investigations.
You got it.
Pandering to La Raza types only means you’ll lose otherwise conservative voters.
