Democrats Play Offense in the South in Hopes of Turning Some Red States Blue [Riiiight]
PBS ^ | 9/3/12

Posted on 09/04/2012 5:46:47 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

As Democrats gather in this Southern city on the eve of the convention, we look at the changing political landscape of the South with Democratic Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Kareem Crayton. He's a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Law, and he studies race in politics.

And we thank you both for being with us...

There is a good chance they will be unable to hold to CT, PA, MI, and WI let alone pick up any Southern States.

They could lower the voting age to 10 for minorities.

If he studies race in politics he might already know that blaks will keep voting for Obama. but there are’t enough of them to elect him. That’s the purpose of the Amnesty,and the made up war on women.

I still don’t think there are enough to put Obama back in office and I believe his shopping for a house in Hawaii is pretty convincing argument that Obama doesn’t think so either.

LOL. The only southern state in play is Virginia. And only because Northern VA is basically a suburb of DC.

Obozo will lose North Carolina by 6-8 points. And won’t come within 10 points in any other southern state.

The ONLY states he MIGHT get is Virginia and that is going to be tough. Florida is going to be tough too but probably easier than Virginia.

With the Democratic party plank now supporting same-sex marriages, that could right there write off a HUGE number of states, given that American voters overwhelmingly disapprove of this practice. And that includes the South.

Obama and the Democrat Party will not carry one southern state. Virginia, North Carolina and Florida will go big time for Romney/Ryan. The Democrat Freak Show in Charlotte, will also cement, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania into the Romney/Ryan camp!!!

The Romney camp believes they have FL sown-up. They have polls showing the I-95 (?) corridor goign big for Romney.

He only won NC by 14,000 votes back when people thought he was the second coming. They definitely can kiss NC goodbye this year.

Good luck with that. If he loses Florida, he will not carry a single state South of the Mason-Dixon line.

If Buckwheat visited the south carrying a jug of white lightning, had a Jimmy Johnson bumper sticker on his rear and there was collard greens growing in the dirt behind his ears and a catfish flapping in a pocket, he might get an invitation for lunch and then a one-way ticket back to Chicago.

IS THERE AN "AFFORD" IN YOUR FUTURE?

There'll be a temporary spike up for the DemonCrats after their coven convention, but soaring gas prices will quickly negate that.

Plus, summer help will be over soon if not now......and the laid-off workers will be lining up at the unemployment offices.

For the common folk, there's no "afford" for them in a future with Obama.

I predict that the Messiah takes 10-12 states tops in the electoral college.

“he will not carry a single state South of the Mason-Dixon line” Maryland is S/ of the “Mason-Dixon Line” and Obummer will take that state NO PROBLEM!

The people in the red states are much to smart to vote for obama. Especially a second time.

"What about Maryland?"

Maryland is hopelessly RAT.

The Mason-Dixon line might as well be moved to the Potomac river.

They would have to register every dead person in the South to be successful, and their Voter Fraud Division doesn’t want to work that hard.

There is lots of disenchantment with Obuggery in NOVA. The indies absolutely despise him like the GOP. There will be enough to defeat him with GOP, Indy and crossover Dems.

Song: Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue

With apologies to Artist: Crystal Gayle
Album: Best of Crystal Gayle

I don’t know when I’ve been so blue
Don’t know what’s come over you
You’ve found someone new
And don’t it make my red states blue

I’ll be fine when you’re gone
I’ll just cry all night long
Say it isn’t true
And don’t it make my red states blue

Tell me no secrets, tell me some lies
Give me no reasons, give me alibis
Tell me you love me and don’t let me cry
Say anything but don’t say goodbye

I didn’t mean to treat you bad
Didn’t know just what I had
But honey now I do
And don’t it make my red states
Don’t it make my red states
Don’t it make my red states blue

(repeat final three lines twice)

Okay, okay, okay - Obama will take Maryland. I stand corrected. Let’s say, he will not take a state south of the Ohio River and East of the Mississippi. The SOUTH.

The Democrats would have had better luck in VA. But NC is going GOP this year as is IND. That leaves FL and OH. I don’t think they’re going to win there this election.

I see CO and NV as the only states the Democrats keep this year thanks to changing demographics.

“The ONLY states he MIGHT get is Virginia and that is going to be tough. Florida is going to be tough too but probably easier than Virginia.”

That’s all he needs, and the polls I’ve seen within the past few days put Obama slightly ahead in Virginia. Hard to believe that the Capital of The Confederacy has meandered so far from its roots.

Without Virginia, Romney loses.

When we visited NoVa in April, it looked like a lot of America USED TO LOOK.

The govt money pouring in has created a large zone of false prosperity.

I can see why it’s solidly in the Obama column.
