How Does One Get Reelected with this Economy?
WH Dossier ^ | 7-27-2012 | Keith Koffler

There’s just no longer any way to spin this. There is no reason why the economy should not be picking up after three and a half years of the Obama presidency. Unless the problem is the Obama presidency.

The Commerce Department announced today that the economy grew only 1.5 percent the second quarter of the year. This is not an aberration or hiccup.

Since Obama was inaugurated, the economy has grown above 2.5 percent only twice, and only once since the beginning of 2011. This is the Obama economy.

I want to tell you something. There are certain bottom lines in life.

(Picture: Gilligan, we're shipwrecked!) <=== (Note: Not to be missed)

Obama has failed to turn the economy around. And Mitt Romney is going to have more money to spend on the campaign than the president.

You can do all the micro-targeting, all the get–out-the-vote efforts, and all the demonization of your opponent that you want. But unless it turns out that Romney spent his weekends during the 1980s robbing banks and loan sharking, I just don’t see how Obama gets reelected. ....

Re-elected in this economy? Tell the “news” media to say the economy is “doing fine” and have the dead and illegals vote multiple times. Oh, and shut out the military vote.

1) Blame Bush
2) Claim critics are racist
3) Repeat

How do you get re-elected in this economy?

Simple.

50 years of bad government schools. 50 years of angry rhetoric aimed at blacks by their “leaders”. Communist indoctrination in schools, media, and entertainment. 16% unemployment + outsourcing. Blame the mortgage bubble and crash on the other side. Tell rich kids that their wealthy parents aren’t giving them enough and they “deserve more”.

Then, add in the destruction of morality and common sense, a demand for the nanny state, and the end of men’s involvment in the family.

Top it off with a GOP that is afraid to fight dirty and a demand that God stay out of the public arena (unless that god is allah).

How can he lose in a nation like that?

How does one get re-elected with this economy?

Collect the votes of

1. Blacks and Hispanics who vote as racial blocs.

2. Unmarried women with children who “marry” the government as breadwinner.

3. Government employees.

4. People who don’t pay attention to the news but get info indirectly through late-night comics and TV and movies.

5. People who do pay attention to the news but get their info from the MSM.

6. People who were indoctrinated by liberals in government schools and in universities.

The Opposition drops the ball.

GHW Bush managed to drop it. McCain managed to drop it.

Never underestimate the potential for the GOP to drop the ball. They are expert at pulling defeat out of the jaws of victory.

Uncle Joe Stalin always said it doesn't matter who votes. What really matters is who counts the votes!

Therefore (in addition to all of the above reasons), you get one of your big bundlers to set up a vote counting company based in Spain. On Election Night, the votes are then sent there for a "final" tally, with no backup records kept. Then this nice Spanish company counts them, announces the results - and (surprise!) you win!!

What could be more simple than that?

How?

Giving hand outs, offering prizes, coupons and gifts to millions of illegal aliens, telling millions who lost their employer health benefits he'll give them some second rate, bottom shelf, low cost insurance, etc, etc.

Oh, good. Another FR surrender monkey parade. Do us all a favor and dig a hole and bury yourselves. Leave your addresses so we can send teams around to pick up your ammo and weapons.

I wonder who all these FR Romney detractors are going to support and vote for?

He is what we have, and far better than the alternative.
Face reality - don’t let Mr. Bojangles get a second term, even if you have a deep seated hatred for Romney.
