Your 15 Question Quiz on Whether to Vote for Obama in 2012
Townhall.com ^ | March 16, 2012 | John Hawkins

Posted on 03/16/2012 5:16:41 AM PDT by Kaslin

Should you vote for Barack Obama or the Republican candidate in 2012? Here's a little quiz to help you decide!

1) The latest report from the CBO shows that the one decade cost estimate for Obamacare has almost doubled from 900 billion to 1.76 trillion dollars, it will add 700 billion dollars to the deficit over its first 10 years, 3-5 million people will lose their health care, and 30 million people still won't have health coverage -- and history has shown that CBO projections of this sort almost always turn out to be optimistic. So, do you want the American health care system to be decimated by Barack Obama?

2) Do you want see gas prices rise as fast as possible while Barack Obama slow walks offshore drilling, blocks the Keystone Pipeline, and opposes ANWR?

3) Obama's stimulus may have been the single most wasteful expenditure in human history. It cost more than the "Marshall Plan, the Louisiana Purchase, and putting a man on the moon" combined and yet, numerous critics correctly predicted that it wouldn't work. Do you want more stimulus bills like that one in the future?

4) Because of Barack Obama's policies, we've had 37 months in a row of above 8% unemployment. That's the longest streak since the Great Depression. Perhaps worse yet, there are 1.7 million fewer jobs today than there were when Obama took office. Do you want to continue to see this many of your fellow Americans unemployed because of Barack Obama's incompetence?

5) The Catholic Church opposes birth control and abortion. Do you think it's okay for the Obama Administration to violate its First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion by forcing it to give out birth control for procreation? Should Catholics have to help abort babies, even though the Catholic Church views it as murder, despite the fact that every last Catholic bishop in the United States has condemned that decision?

6) America lost its AAA credit rating under Obama, we had the highest monthly deficit in American history just last month, and the projected 10 year deficit under Obama is more than 13 trillion dollars. Do you want to see this kind of spending continue?

7) Do you approve of an American President servilely bowing to foreign leaders?

8) Obama's blundering diplomacy in Pakistan and Afghanistan has almost hopelessly fouled the war effort there. After all the blood and treasure we've spent in Afghanistan, do you want to see America lose to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda because Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing?

9) Whether you're rich, poor, or the middle class, one thing you can be sure of is that your taxes will go up if Barack Obama is reelected? Do you want your taxes to go up?

10) Every Obama promise comes with an expiration date and you literally can't take him at his word on anything. Do you like politicians to treat you like you're stupid? Do you like being lied to by politicians?

11) Do you think it's okay for Barack Obama's campaign contributors at Solyndra to receive a 535 million dollar government loan, approved by one of Obama’s fundraisers, even though they knew the company was in trouble and there was an excellent chance they wouldn't be able to pay back the loan?

12) In a sop to the unions that supported Barack Obama, "he gave them majority control of Chrysler, the taxpayers lost 14 billion dollars on General Motors, and General Motors received a special 45 billion dollar tax break." Do you think it's okay for Barack Obama to waste 59 billion dollars to help his political allies?

13) Do you think that the molestation of 95 year old cancer patients, sexual assaults, and the bad touching of small children by Obama's TSA should continue even though it does nothing of significance to prevent terrorist attacks?

14) Barack Obama supported TARP and expanded it when he became President. Do you like seeing well-connected big businesses that make lots of money when times are good get government bailouts to cover their losses when times are bad?

15) Obama's Department of Justice helped Mexican criminals get their hands on guns that were used to kill hundreds of Mexicans and an American. Nobody has been fired, nobody has been prosecuted, and the DOJ isn't cooperating with a congressional investigation into a scandal that's as serious as Watergate. Do you think it's all right for the Obama Administration to help provide guns to Mexican cartels without accountability?

That's the quiz! Count up how many "yes" answers you have and see how you scored!

0-5: Congratulations! You're sane!

6-10: Is this David Frum, David Brooks, or Meghan McCain?

11-15: Excellent news, Comrade! You have done well! We may have a spot for you as a guest on the Chris Matthews show next week!

I keep asking myself, How am I supposed to accept anything from the CBO after there analysis and initial estimate were "only" off by $876B, or 97.33%.

If I was that "accurate", I'm sure I'd be rapidly added to the 8.3%, 17%, 25% unemployed.

This sure is a damning set of questions. They surely eliminate a vote for Obama for anyone that’s sane, but I think we’d need another set of questions if the Republican nominee is Romney.

Depends on whether the Republican candidate will work to undo what Obama's done or merely slow it down.

But he’s a shade darker than a brown paper bag,
so voting against him would be racist and wrong.

How about a third-party qualifier in case Romney is the nominee? If FR comments are an indicator lot of conservatives are going to eschew both parties of Mittens goes forward.

If you answer on the side of Buckwheat, you ought to be shot. Supporting treason is cause for the death penalty.

(I'm not suggesting that Buckwheat be shot. We don't need a marter)

Not defending CBO, but they score what they are given. The Dems gave them numbers, not the proposed bill so we got what they came up with. Pelosi said we need to pass it to find out what’s in it, so now we are finding out a bunch of surprises.

Yep... that would bring annoyances we don’t need.

“Barack Obama Memorial Highway”
“Barack Obama Federal Building”
“Barack Obama Middle School” (oh, wait... we already have those!)
“Mosque of Obama the Prophet”

“This sure is a damning set of questions. They surely eliminate a vote for Obama for anyone that’s sane...”

Has there ever been a sane Progressive?

Just asking.

You can boil it down to two questions.

1. Are you too ignorant to know you are being lied to?

2. If you know you are being lied to are you too stupid to care?

Answer yes to either of these questions and you are a dem to the bone.

Does anybody else see a need to reform the CBO? It is no longer an independent arm of Congress, but, open to manipulations of its analysis from its rules. There are, probably, dozens of third party think tanks that got this correct over the “official” CBO.

Some are simply too racist to care.

Illustrated with a simple question:
If 0bama was white, what would his support level be?

You got that right.

If Zippo was white he wouldn't even be on the radar. Hell he wouldn't have been elected in the first place.

A third party candidate? You have got to be joking. This would guarantee 0bama’s reelection for sure

So will nominating Romney. The case for repeal Obamacare is neutralized if he goes forward.
