Posted on 09/09/2010 4:41:26 PM PDT by PROCON
If, in a county where President Obama won 69% of the vote less than two years ago, the President cannot fill a Community College Recreational Center with a scheduled event, you might consider that to be newsworthy. Apparently the Mainstream Media did not.
Final results from the 2008 election show President Obama won the state of Ohio by a substantial amount. A quick check of the final numbers shows Obama with 2,933,388 votes and McCain lagging behind with 2,674,491. An election night drubbing, in a state that was considered by many media pundits to be a battleground state.

C-SPAN has a liberal slant?
I'm shocked, shocked I tell ya!
Which is why I consider them to be worthless, irrelevant, and not worth so much as a dime. Even the WSJ (bought with airmiles) is sliding toward the cliff.
Dirty Little Secret:
During the 2008, The media was also hiding empty seats at several Obama rallies.
On the other hand, the Tina Fey look-a-like had standing room only crowds with long lines to get in which the media totally ignored.
How many seats were in this place to begin with? Was it a large thousand or more seat place or a few hundred seats ... what’s the percentage that 76 empty seats made?
I wouldn't be surprised to see OH become a Republican state, except for a few HOR reps from some cities.
For all of the visits Obama has made to the Cleveland area, I don't think he's yet gone to the neighborhoods on Cleveland's east side, where you had kids wheeling their elderly neighbors and relatives to the polls to vote. (no exaggeration). There doesn't seem to be any enthusiasm about Obama coming to NE OH anymore.
Someone needs to drop the crack pipe. Obozo got 52.92% of the vote(2008 OFFICIAL PRESIDENTIAL GENERAL ELECTION RESULTS). He did get 69,456,897 votes but not 69% of the votes!
Many fainted and didn't make it into the gig?
Re: your homepage: Ahhhh, you're kids are so cute!!
Enjoy them FRiend, they grow up so quickly, hug them often, I know you will!
BTW, thanks for your Service to Our Country!
There are 69,456,897 voters in that county in OH? Who knew?
Many people thought it was cool to vote for Hussein simply because he is black. Now they are forced to accept the reality that he is in way over his head and is nothing more than a community organizer.
It reads “in a county” not “in a state”
Cleveland and inner ring suburbs
40% minority and a large percentage of Kucinich loving Caucasians
Yes it was 69%, sadly
Haven't thought about the "Drew Carey" theme song in years!
Moon over Parma, bring my love to me tonight.
Guide her to Cleveland, underneath your silvery light.
We're going bowlin'
So don't loose her in Solon.
Moon over Parma, tonight!
Now I see it, Come on Cleveland, you can do better that.
So, how are these people getting in office? There has to be mega bucks going out to Dem. cities around this country for "walk about" money.
Did the Dems raid the union pension funds to get enough money to pay off these black leaders, ACORN, Union leaders, etc. ?
I did a Google search about this yesterday and there were only two stories about it, and they were pathetic.
However, it is possible that there were more stories about this in the mainstream media, but since the Whitehouse seems to control all internet search engines, unless we go to each individual news source or purchase individual newspapers, we’ll never know.
Have you ever been to Parma? I was surprised, but there really is a Parma, it’s a city, and although it abuts Cleveland it’s a totally distinct place.
This may sound far-fetched, but I'm wondering if this next round, except for the two HOR reps, the county might not deliver the percentages for the dems. If more angry traditional voters get out there and vote and the miniorities lack enthusiasm, it could really tighten it up.
The job situation is terrible here. Nobody, Caucasian or minority, really believes the hispanics and other immigrants are "doing jobs US citizens won't do". And nobody's talking about bringing basic manufacturing back.
I believe they mentioned “in a County..69%..”
Well there is an “enthusiasm gap” surrounding Dems this year.
They won’t get the turnout that Baraq generated in 2008.
However I suspect that Cleveland (like many large urban areas) is a hotbed of vote fraud.
I know, because I was there. No LSM that I could recognize.
Affirmative Action at its best/worst.
“”Did the Dems raid the union pension funds to get enough money to pay off these black leaders, ACORN, Union leaders, etc.?””
I hate to say it but they don’t have to raid the union pension funds - money is flowing to them from obozo right under our noses. Do you know where the stimulus funds went? Neither does anyone else. You can’t say he’s not transparent!
I had a co-worker from Cleveland during the time of the “Drew Carey Show”. She told me about the places in his song (Parma, Solon, etc.)
TV coverage: President Obama spoke before a predominately invisible audience today.
