Japanese News (Translated): Today's Vote Is "No Confidence" Measure Regarding Obama
Chugoku News (Original In Japanese) ^ | 2 November 2010 | Tohru Mukai, Reporter

Posted on 11/02/2010 12:27:30 AM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

Chugoku Shimbun (News), in Japan, is from the Hiroshima region of the country. Their online report of the election just appeared in original Japanese.

During these wee hours in the USA, I'm happy to "FReepranslate" the first paragraph and article headline as follows:

"US Midterm Elections: Republicans Heading For Landslide?"

"Washington Reporter, Tohru Mukai: "Polls one day before the big US midterm elections show a 15 point lead of popularity of the Republican Party over the Democratic Party. For all intents and purposes, tomorrow's vote in the US is a vote of confidence or no confidence against President Obama. Even despite Michelle Obama and former President Clinton barnstorming key battleground states in a final effort, it has come to this."

(End My Translation) Tokyo, 2 November 16:10 p.m.

Hey, thanks for the translation. Don’t speak Japanese, but do speak Russian, French, German and Spanish. Japanese has been on my “to do” list since I was in college, but that’s 30 years ago now...

There is even a book out these days ridiculing not only Obama, but also Vice President Bite Me, and Nancy Pelosi:

Yep, that's coming up, max. Thank you for reminding me. Gotta get out there with the digi-camera again for 2010 in Tokyo. Hope to take a lot of pics. ;-) It should be a very good Christmas 2010 (if the Yemeni's don't hit the USA/Europe between now and then).

If one is starting in early on the Japanese and other Asian beers in celebration here in Japan [have voted absentee with a clear conscience and am off duty], (we can do that as it is getting dark here on Tuesday, the eve of a Japanese National Holiday), then either version is cool!! ;-)

MORE THAN A THUMPIN'

Obama says Dems are in trouble because Americans aren't thinking clearly. He's delusional.

Time to put the federal beast back into its cage.

Forget the polls, forget the media spin. Go to the ballot box and put an end to the Dem Party on November 2, 2010.

Throw this putrid congress out on their heads.

From post # 23 " This will also be a vote of no confidence in the American Press " might as well add in their the Democrats, Obama and this administration.

The voters will be showing their contempt, and disdain when voting, now ? how is that gross ?

中間選挙の投票は、ほとんどの州で日本時間の3日午前中に締め切られ、午後にも大勢が判明する見通しです。 Hey ! I don't even think you'll have to wait until the afternoon of the 3rd Japanese time to determine the trends. :)

It will sweep across "Obama's America" like a prarie fire. It will be unstoppable.

That's why the chickenshit is fleeing the country for India and other parts of Asia.

Realllll convenient, isn't.

Man up Mr. President, and take it like a MAN. You created this mess over two years, now live with it.

Yesss....we....cannn...hmmm hmmmm MMMMM!

It’s a piece of cake for me. That’s not necessarily bragging. I have just done it on FR for so many years, that’s all. Can usually get those done in 5 to 10 minutes max. Kudos of course to TigerLikesRooster handling the Korean peninsula on FR for us, too.

I love reading these. I think the non English news media has been so rabidly pro Obama for so long they can’t believe he is losing politically “even despite” the efforts of Bill Clinton and Michele Obama.

Can you REALLY read that? 8)

Absolutely. I read it forwards, then backwards and then vertically up and down. It made perfect sense to me no matter which way I read. And this from a country that has a town called 'Obama' whose citizens back in 2008 were cheering Obama's "erection".

I for one won’t let Reid, and Pelosi get away without blame for the vast majority of the damage done to our Nation, including the loss of credibility to our Nation.

This is a referendum on all of them. Reid, and Pelosi led the way, then came Obama, and his rubber stamp of their handi-work.

It’s also a long overdue vote of no confidence regarding RINO’s.

America is awakening.

The big U.S. midterm election on 1st be before showing 15 point leads of the popularity of Republican Party in Democratic Party in the public opinion poll. About all the intention and purpose, in U.S. tomorrow’s vote is the want of confidence to a vote of confidence and the president. Even, without being concerned the important fierce fight state of final effort to the canvass this as for Mitchebama and the Clinton former president, it has would. The president knows be assumed that it loses all the faces. We chatted like your so in sorry.
