I deal with the public every day. I'm not afraid to ask how they feel about our current President and the state of affairs of this country. The opinions are 10 to 1 against the current President, his administration and the direction he is taking this country. To Hell is the majority of their answers of where we're headed. That is why I've been maintaining that the polls are a figment of the media's imagination, they are prepared with the most loaded criterion possible but they are no where close to the sentiment of this country. And, I'm talking about Massachusetts as my sounding board. If you look back to 1980 and the trouncing that Jimmy Carter got, Carter was leading in most polls prior to convention time and then only slightly behind. The rest is history. I have no doubt that this election will be the biggest landslide and turn of congressional seats in the history of this country. In closing, I have an acquaintance that I argued with ferosiously during the 2008 camgaign. He was working for Obama day and night, raised money for him and was in love with the guy. I saw him last week. Guess what?? He is now a Republican. His reason?? Democrats don't know how to tell the truth. From his lips to God's ears. I'm betting Obama loses 50 states and congress with veto proof for Republicans.

I wouldn’t count on an Obama defeat.

The votes are going to be counted in Spain by SCYTL.

There will be no paper ballot audit trail.

George Soros owns SCYTL...

“I’m betting Obama loses 50 states and congress with veto proof for Republicans.”

I’m cautiously optimistic that he’s going to get smoked in November; here in NJ most bumper stickers were gone within a year (at which point Chris Christie was elected our governor and Scott Brown your senator), and I see no compelling reason for people even in Illinois to vote for him. He has lost the confidence of every demographic save the government workers that have survived layoffs, and even they have to contend with the unreported inflation. Logically he should have lost a primary challenge to any other Dem; he spent much of last year fending that off instead of focusing on Republicans (he certainly wasn’t focused on fixing the economy).

This talk about student loan help indicates that he is aware that he even lost the “youth vote” that was delivered to him by the media masters in 2008; he simply doesn’t understand that many people want to work to buy things, not accept government handouts while their self esteem is in the toilet.

I’m terrified of shenanigans costing us this coming election, but I’ve posted several times that he’ll have to fight for every state. Very few people are better off than 4 years ago, and that has usually been a good indicator of election results.

Dream on. He will win.

There is no way to fight the massive voter fraud.

Plus the GOP are wimps. They have had four years to take on the voter fraud issue but are so afraid of being labeled racist.

I am very saddened but I have to agree with you. The only thing I personally have going is I am old and will not probably have to see the "end" of what he will bring.

The other half are the ones who don’t realize the economy isn’t any better now than in 2010, when he extended the Bush tax cuts for the rich because the economy wasn’t getting any better.

In 2010 we also heard all the time people talking the same way as you are talking now and that there is no way the Republicans would win because of massive fraud.

I agree...I currently serve our county on the Travel Board. We, 1 Repub. and 1 Demo. take ballots to registered voters in nursing homes, state hospital, or shut ins at home. In a large number of cases (I am the Republican) the people who request Democrat ballots will vote for their candidates for state and local offices, but will refuse to vote for Obama. I really was amazed, but one old lady...in a nursing home...stated that she wouldn’tvotefor that SOB because she couldn’t stand him...I O.K.’d her vote!

I am old, too.

And, I have lost all “hope”, for I know nothing will “change” in D.C. We have gone way too far down the road, and we can’t even explain it to our sons and daughters.

They are so busy trying to run faster and faster that they don’t have the time to figure out that they are in a big pot of water that is ever so slowly getting warmer and warmer.

Maybe AlGore is right, and the socialist global warming fraud is frying the brains of our children and grandchildren, who will be “french-fried” before they even figure out that the upscale stores at the mall aren’t selling anything they really need for survival.

I saw a statistic today which is very favorable for Obama. It is being reported that during his 40 months in office five million Americans have been placed on permanent disability with the Social Security Administration. Guess where those votes are going.

There will be fraud and Soros will see to it if nothing touches him (Soros) beforehand.

But don’t just sit and whine. Save every “Postage Paid” return envelope you ever get in the mail. WRITE something on the outside of it about Bath-House Barry’s crimes and mail the damned thing. IT’S FREE! You may just get the attention of a few in the Post Office or people at the envelope’s destination, but, it’s better than doing nothing.

And, why not print out info from your own computers stating that Bath-House Barry plans to ruin Medicare, he’s importing the enemy and any number of other anti-American things-—send them to nursing homes and retirement facilities or take them there yourself. I did during the health-”care” debacle. Leave them at doctors’ offices and brake service/oil change businesses; anyplace people have to wait for some kind of service.
It seems like a small thing, but you never know the exponential affect it could have.

It was widely reported as we were losing jobs that workplace discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuits, as well as disability claims, were rising. While Obama may have gotten 5 million votes from this scheme, it cost him more in terms of the taxpayers being asked to fund it. Appealing to welfare recipients automatically costs many of the voters that feed, clothe, and house such recipients, and this should work in a similar manner.

Nothing against legitimate recipients of this program; it just seems that here in NJ any auto accident results in at least 10 disability claims.

It is bad indeed. It will get even worse before it gets better. Tough times ahead, but then sunshine days after that. When (God willing) this snake oil charlatan narcissist is FINALLY turned away from office, and the American Mass Media Complex, which rigs up and gins numbers to match their narrative, are beside themselves, circa November 1980.

That’s another reason , added to the list, of why I won’t for either Romney or Obama.

Power is in who ‘counts’ the votes, not in who votes.

I’ve spoken with my children about what I’ve seen just since the 60’s....one of the things I’ve stressed is the speed in which things are happening today because there is little if no restraint anywhere in our country.

Not to mention everyones become a crook one way or another. A store changed it’s return policy where you can now return anything at any time...no restrictions. Well they’re returning years old merchandise...stolen merchandise...and switching labels at record time!

I’m with you...it’s the worst I’ve seen it and I thought the 60’s were bad enough! Of course those are the people running things now.

The only way the GOP could lose this time around is by picking Romney for their candidate.

So of course, that’s exactly what they did.

My son has an “Impeach Obama” bumper sticker on his car. He gets nothing but favorable comments on it.

(We’re in the Texas panhandle though where Obama lost every county in 08)

The Democrats should declare the guy ineligible and overturn everything he did to save their party.

I hear the same from folks around me even from those that voted for him in 2008.

They try not to blame him too much and try to be sympathetic towards him but by their tone, they know he has failed and they’re scared what he would do in a second term

“The Democrats should declare the guy ineligible and overturn everything he did to save their party.”

The only real hope the Democrats have to survive this election is to just that and then let the blame fall on the Republicans for not fulfilling their role of ‘loyal opposition’.

The Democrats,except in most liberal of districts, will get wiped out this fall at the national level.

I have a 37 year old daughter, a 43 year old son-in-law (who I love like a son through and through). They have three kids, 4,3, and just 14 weeks old. I remember when we were first celebrating baby three... we were so excited, and to this day we are all so very grateful. At the same time, we, too, fear for our children, my grandchildren, and your great grandbabies. Sadly, I also worry about you, my mom, my friend’s parents, people of all ages. We are in serious trouble!

At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter who’s in the White House. We survived clinton’s 8-year crime spree and we can survive this loser. What we CAN’T survive is a bad Congress. We must elect honorable people who love this country.. not career politicians. The idiots in congress are responsible for this calamity that has been 30 years in the making. We are doomed..special interest groups and political correctness have destroyed our nation.
