No Amnesty Bump for Obama in Polls
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | June 20, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

Investor's Business Daily story here by Andrew Malcolm, formerly of the Los Angeles Times. "Obama's Immigration Ploy Has Gained Him Nada" in the polls. "To help smother the dismal reviews of his economic reset speech last week in Cleveland, President Obama scheduled a last-minute Rose Garden appearance Friday morning to add some presidential heft to his executive order about immigration. Whenever he's in trouble, the one-time Real Good Talker throws another speech out there.

"Until this spring's troubles, everybody always said speaking was his strong suit. His Fidel Castro-length economic remarks blamed Europe, Congress and the usual Texan [George Bush] for the nation's re-sinking economy." So here's Andrew Malcolm reviewing the Obama that we all know. It's the same guy. He goes on and on and on, says nothing, stutters and hems and haws without a prompter. It's common. It's every day. To the guy at the New York Times, it's panic time.

Oh, no! My God, he doesn't look so smart now. He doesn't look so in command.

It's the same Obama that everybody gets every day. And then Andrew Malcolm writes, "But -- are you sitting down? -- it contained no new ideas. He's still waiting for Congress to do something, you see. So, the 6,300 words ended up merely calling more sustained attention to the administration's idea bankruptcy, to the dim outlook for job improvements and to how bad the economy remains, despite all the promises more than 700 days ago of a magnificent Recovery Summer. Two-thirds of Americans remain convinced their country is still mired in recession.

"So, to change the subject quickly, Obama's Friday schedule was amended for him to get some news coverage about what he'd already told Homeland Security to do: Permit illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to remain here under certain conditions, not including citizenship. The unexpected announcement, which always raises the attention level in that DC hothouse, was widely touted by the media as a brilliant political move that would not only back Republicans into a corner somewhere, but earn a badly-needed poll boost for the Democrat languishing dangerously well below 50% approval in an election year."

But "On the day before his immigration remarks, Gallup's seven-day rolling average of about 3,000 registered voters in a hypothetical Obama-Romney match-up had the Republican ahead 46-45. Four days later the rolling average was exactly the same, 46 Romney[;] 45 Obama. In Rasmussen Reports' three-day rolling average of their match-up, just before Obama's Rose Garden remarks, Romney lead Obama 47-45. Three days later, Romney had improved to 48. Obama had slipped to 44."

So there was no bump.

There was no polling bump.

Obama didn't get any polling bump from his immigration remarks on Friday. And I told you to expect this on Monday or Tuesday of this week. I asked you to remember 2007 and that the people of this country are diametrically opposed to amnesty. They don't want any part of it, of what Obama announced. I said it's not gonna help him. Everybody thinks it's gonna help. What he's doing, folks, is he has given up on mainstream America. His bet is that his electoral chances are better coalescing all these disparate, extreme fringe groups into one voting bloc. And he thinks that bunch will outnumber mainstream America.

That's what he's counting on. They said it was brilliant, but ain't gonna happen.

It's not gonna happen.

Well, he’s already sucked up to the homos and illegals.
What’s left? The National Association of Man-Boy Love?

As has been posted on other threads, Romney’s can attack this indirectly as a matter of executive overreach and directly as deliberately putting Mexicans in harm’s way via Fast and Furious. Re the latter, I think some number of hundreds of dead Mexicans have been directly linked to F&F.

What’s next? Pandering to the RP crowd by legalizing pot. He will downgrade any penalties. Afterall, he was a pothead so this will just be in line with everything else he has done.

Unfortunately for Obama, the Mexican Drug Cartels do not want pot legal. And they seem to be very well armed now, for some reason.

“No pain, no gain”.
He pandered to the groups (Latino, gay) that he already ‘owned’.

Romney's or a PAC's ads should show American teenagers and young people just telling what has happened in their lives during Obama's recession "through no fault of their own" . Children of the unemployed, those who moved due to foreclosure, recent grads who can't find jobs, teenagers who can't find jobs, and the children of legal immigrants just telling their experiences.

And now Obama wants to add more competition.

Hey, don't forget---Obama's big suck-up to Hollyweirdos.

Man the sucking-up was fast and furious (/snix) at the Clooney big-do. Heck, they even had a "BJ room" for the really b.i.g donors.

Vogue's Anna Wintour compeltely redecorated Sarah Jessica Parker's NYC apartment for the Obama "blow-out" party there.

ROTFL.

What?

No bump in the polls for Ohaha after the illegal suckup?

MAN, OH, MAN-—the Ohaha 2012 team are helping Romney bigtime.

When Ohaha came out for same-sex marriage, Romney’s numbers rocketed into the stratosphere and haven’t come down since.

Romney’s ahead in just about all the swing states——and by a whopping 9 points in Montana.

Mitty oughta hire Ohaha’s campaign team-—what with the boost they’ve given his campaign.

ROTFL.

Obama's probably already had the phone call made to Sandusky. No one's spoken up for the pedophiles' votes yet. Mr. President-elect, Mitt, whatever--we better get crackin' or we're lookin' at a pedophile gap! That reminds me. Is a pedophobe some one afraid of children? I don't understand this century yet. It's got ol' Buck by the short & curlies. Just sayin'.

Maybe Obama can get Jerry Sandusky to endorse him. Birds of a feather...

I’m wondering if some gay people will not even vote for him either? I have a cousin who is gay; and this cousin does NOT like Obama at all, and isn’t going to vote for him! He lives in Nevada and doesn’t like Harry Reid either!

He said recently when visiting us with his brother, sister, bro-in-law and a few nephews, that he would definitely vote for a Republican (both for Pres. and for Senator) if the Republicans would put up the right person in both cases! He liked Sen. Ensign before he messed up and left, and does like their new Republican Governor! Why? Because inn spite of being gay, he is otherwise fairly conservative!

ROTFL.....good one.

Obama’s crackerjack 2012 campaign team advised him to get on the phone to Sandusky, Spanier, and the rest of the PS pedophile clique. They gotta move fast to sew up the all-important pedophile vote for vote-crazed Dems.

And I hear Axelrod, Plouffe and Gibbs are slaving over the WH kitchen stove to make gift packages of “fudge” for the Sandusky crowd.
