Mainstream media and, in fact, all media have made a fundamental error in assessing the 2012 Presidential election.
We continually hear how a majority of people, supposed likely voters, disapprove of the Presidents handling of the economy and even more people are disappointed in Obamas role in the U.S. Federal budget deficit.
In addition, the real unemployment situation has everyone shaking their head, not to mention our deteriorating world status as a leading power.
If the election were predicated on all these facts alone, the Obama regime would be in serious trouble.
However, what most of my colleagues are missing regarding this complicated and convoluted campaign is that the end result will boil down to simple mathematics.
Lets take a step back for a moment.
Four years ago, David Axelrod and his election team focused on the voters, or potential voters, who were most disillusioned with George W. Bush.
Practically speaking, little time was spent on trying to convert people to the Obama philosophy.
Instead, Axelrod and his associates showed young voters that Obama was cool. They demonstrated to black voters that Barack was one of them, and to women voters (preferably single mothers), they explained that Obama could feel their pain.
The rest of the economics reflected in the polls was totally irrelevant.
Axelrod and his team knew that if they were able to get the aforementioned people out to vote (the majority), they could win the election.
Fast-forward to the present-day and Axelrod is back in the same position once again. More than a year ago, he left the White House to begin the re-election campaign.
His goal, I believe, is to once again identify the Obama beneficiaries, and just like last time, utilize both technology and shoe-leather in order to make sure these beneficiaries vote.
Who are these likely voters that Axelrod is targeting?
Fox News watchers, Friday night cocktail partiers, or even the successful small businessman?
Axelrod will focus on the all-time high number of food stamp recipients, the people that are receiving unemployment benefits or those who have fallen off unemployment assistance and have now started to receive disability payments, and the majority who pay no income taxes.
In other words, those that benefit most from the public dole.
With both Obama and Joe Biden making the message loud and clear, Axelrod will also stress that any change in the current administration structure will rock the boat and disrupt the monthly check for all those receiving benefits.
Think about it.
If 51% of the voters are happy with the governments socialism and 49% are opposed, no amount of voter polls, predictions, or projections will change the inevitable.
Economic pronouncements make good sound bites; however, reality suggests the guy who gives something for nothing is not going to be replaced by the guy who takes it all away.
Thats just simple mathematics.
Sealed with a tearful kiss by John Boehner himself. Those Republican guys, they're so sentimental!
Or maybe they just don't gee or haw to anyone but the K Street bagmen.
No, you don't. You refuse to get it. You're being sarcastic.
You're riding with the RiNO Club even while they're urinating all over your head and up and down your leg, and you lecture me about "foolishness"?
Sadly, the land of the free is becoming the home of the slaves. One half of the people dependent, virtual wards of the state, and the other half taxed into oblivion, at the point of a gun, to support them.
Elect folks who understand the obligations of their oaths to support the Constitution of the United States, to defend the God-given, unalienable rights of the people, while staying within the Enumerated Powers.
None of which Obama Democrats nor Romney Republicans can be counted upon to do, of course.
re: You’re riding with the RiNO Club even while they’re urinating all over your head and up and down your leg, and you lecture me about “foolishness”?
Your eloquent words paint a picture that takes the reader from his mundane world, brilliantly capturing his imagination, and making him feel that he is really there.
The ever naive Doug from Upland, who refuses to get it, is tricked into riding a fine steed with the RiNO Club. The members take him out to the meadow and systematically begin showering him with bodily fluids. In the warm summer sun, the fluids begin drenching his head and finish their ephemeral journey by running down his leg and staining his True Religion jeans. Then, in a remarkable feat that would have had Sir Issac Newton question his Universal Law of Gravitation, the fluids inexplicably begin running up DFU’s leg.
Ah, yes, FReepers, lentulusgracchus is the master wordsmith. We may not know the color of the sky in the fantasy world in which he lives, but with his political expertise and logic, we should hold him in awe. The GOP, despite a victory by Obama, is going to capture 67 Senate seats. Shortly thereafter, charges will be brought in the House and, Barack Hussein Obama, only the third U.S. President to ever be impeached, will be convicted in the Senate and removed from office. It is a carefully crafted Machiavellian plan with a very high probability of success.
