There were many factors that hurt Mitt Romney and favored Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800's. The left wing media predictably did everything it could to perpetuate that false caricature. Obama's race was an advantage; voters of all persuasions, particularly minorities, still cannot get over the allure of the first black president. The 47% of Americans on welfare were predisposed to vote for the food stamp president over Romney, wanting the free goodies to keep on giving, despite the long-term unsustainability.
n spite of those odds, polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election. The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office. Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party. Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns? The most realistic explanation is voter fraud in a few swing states. According to the Columbus Dispatch, one out of every five registered voters in Ohio is ineligible to vote. In at least two counties in Ohio, the number of registered voters exceeded the number of eligible adults who are of voting age. In northwestern Ohio's Wood County, there are 109 registered voters for every 100 people eligible to vote. An additional 31 of Ohio's 88 counties have voter registration rates over 90%, which most voting experts regard as suspicious. Obama miraculously won 100% of the vote in 21 districts in Cleveland, and received over 99% of the vote where GOP inspectors were illegally removed.
The inflated numbers can't just reflect voters who have moved, because the average voting registration level nationwide is only 70%. The vast majority of voters over the 70% level are not voting because they want to, they are voting because someone is getting them to cast a vote, one way or another. Those 31 counties are most likely the largest counties in Ohio, representing a majority of Ohio voters. This means the number of votes cast above the 70% typical voter registration level easily tops 100,000, the margin Obama won Ohio by.
Videographer James O'Keefe, known for his undercover videos exposing left wing fraud, caught a Virginia Democratic Congressman's son on video in October explaining how to commit voter fraud. Patrick Moran, the son of Rep. Jim Moran, told O'Keefe's videographer that in order to make a vote for someone else, you'd need two pieces of identification, such as a utility bill, explaining, "they can fake a utility bill with ease, you know?" He went on to advise the videographer that he should also call the voter and pretend to be a polling company in order to make sure the voter isn't intending to vote. He said that Democrat attorneys would be located in the polling places to assist him if challenged casting one of these illegal votes.
In another video, O'Keefe's videographer tells a DNC staffer from Obama's Organizing for America that she intends to vote in both Texas and Florida. The staffer laughs and says, "It's cool." The staffer then prints out a voter registration form for the undercover videographer and advises her on what to do if she gets caught.
These are just the known instances of attempted voter fraud. How many instances occurred that were not discovered? Obama's Organizing for America looked up voters in swing states many who would not have bothered voting otherwise and got them to vote. How did they get them to vote? They may have given them rides to the polls, they may have offered to fill out and return their ballots for them, or they may have voted ballots for the ones who were not going to vote.
Many on the left believe there is nothing wrong with committing fraud in order to ensure Obama's reelection. It is a common tenet on the left that the ends justify the means. Saul Alinsky, the 1960's radical who inspired Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, taught community organizers like Obama that dishonesty is acceptable if it achieves your political goals. And when caught, Alinsky teaches radicals to deny the wrongdoing and change the topic to put their accusers on the defensive. One Obama supporter brazenly posted on Facebook that he was voting four times for Obama, asserting that the ends justify the means.
Aiding Obama's win was a devious suppression of the conservative vote. The conservative-leaning military vote has decreased drastically since 2010 due to the so-called Military Voter Protection Act that was enacted into law the year before. It has made it so difficult for overseas military personnel to obtain absentee ballots that in Virginia and Ohio there has been a 70% decrease in requests for ballots since 2008. In Virginia, almost 30,000 fewer overseas military voters requested ballots than in 2008. In Ohio, more than 20,000 fewer overseas military voters requested ballots. This is significant considering Obama won in both states by a little over 100,000 votes.
Voter fraud has been in the works for years. At least 52 employees of the left wing group ACORN have been convicted of voter registration fraud. ACORN itself was convicted of the crime of "compensation," paying its registration canvassers bonuses to exceed their quotas. In 2008, 36% of ACORN's voter registrations were invalidated. Left wing political pundit Chris Matthews admitted last year that pretending to call someone from a polling company, then voting their ballot for them, has been happening in big cities since the 1950's. He admitted he knows that kind of voter fraud takes place in Philadelphia.
Strong-arming people into voting who really have no desire to vote undermines our form of government. People do not choose to vote because they are uninformed about the issues and candidates, are lazy, cynical, or are content with the status quo. Voting someone else's ballot for them is cheating the system and essentially giving yourself two votes.
When people claim that Obama won because the economy was improving, or because Americans generally think he is doing a good job, it is not true. He won through dishonest methods and rhetoric. Many of the votes cast in the swing states were cajoled, some legally and perhaps even more illegally, into supporting him. If voter fraud becomes acceptable, then maybe Donald Trump is right: it's time for a revolution.
AND, remember the brave guys at Benghazi who didn’t roll over and tried to save our ambassador—Good GOD! They deserve something more than whiny wimps ready to throw in the towel.
I saw my congresscritter on “This Weak”, with George Snuffalupagous. I have written him in the past about our military’s votes not being counted...his response was that he was on some committee to see to it that they would not be disenfranchised-—well Saxby, you BLEW it. I can’t wait to work against you the next time around, you miserable bastard; there’s a pasture out there with YOUR name on a cow-pile. EAT-IT.
This guy could barely tie Obama weeks leading up to the election and people are shocked that he lost?
Stop making excuses. The guy lost because he sucked. It wasn’t voter fraud, it was candidate fraud.
When ballots fail that only leaves bullets...
“BS. Get over it. This is a nation of mooches. Period.”
And you think they are honest and fair mooches?
Obama sucked even more and he won.
Your numbers for Cuyahoga county are incorrect.
Obama - 420953
Romney - 184475
If there is fraud, it is not as obvious as what you are alleging.
‘Dont we control the Sec of State for Ohio and Florida? Isnt it up to our side to make sure the rolls are clean?’
You are making the assumption that “our side” is not also corrupt.
Has the military said anything about this election?
“Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud”
Well, ummm, errr, I could have told you that on July 4, 2012.
Obama, your voters didn’t win that vote by themselves, no, some massive voter fraud helped you...
GOP = GUTLESS, OUTLIER PARTY
I know how dems cheat. They don’t do the small time stuff - what they do is vote the people who don’t show up. That’s why ‘moter/voter’ in Florida is so important. All they need are raw names to work with... It’s why ‘the dead’ vote. Dems don’t vote the dead on purpose - they want those people off the roles more than we do... voting the dead is a byproduct of the way they cheat.
and still the GOP does nothing. Law and Order are no longer respected or cared for....america is dead.

“The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800’s.”
democrats, hell. It was the f-ing “media” whores!!!!!!
The Soros SoS project was discovered and defeated.
Now what do the Republicans do?
Well I signed it, and my family signed it, and I’m sending it to so many I know who are disgusted with the results of this election.
Btw, my daughter works in NYC, and a co-worker who is registered to vote in Illinois just walked down to the local polling place in NY on Tuesday and voted for Obama. Whether she voted twice I don’t know, but she was not registered to vote in NY and she did. It was easy.
Dont we control the Sec of State for Ohio and Florida? Isnt it up to our side to make sure the rolls are clean?
— In theory yes. However, in both cases Eric Holder stepped in and took them to court when they tried to do it.
I’m glad to see a semi-large site at least addressing this issue. I turn on news shows with 8 people supposedly representing all sides sitting around a table discussing elections and no one wants to say anything about the 800lb Gorilla name “Fraud” that is jumping up and down in the middle of the table.
