AMERICA NEARS EL TIPPING POINTO December 5, 2012

I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.

Reagan got just 43 percent of young voters in 1980 -- and that was when whites were 88 percent of the electorate. Only 58 percent of today's under-30 vote is white and it's shrinking daily.

Hmmm, Ann's 50...no marriage, no kids.

Wonder if she considers herself part of the problem...

The problem with 'the rich' is they don't want you to carpool with them. They sure as heck aren't going to take you to the polls!

Dem pols don't do that either. But they do hire buses to get their people to the polls and back. Is this because GOP consultants get fees for running ads but not for chartering buses?

She’s of course wrong about Romney. In the second debate he bragged to Barry that he’d do so much better on ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ that he’d get it passed in his first year in office.

Further, Romney had a crappy illegal immigration record in Boston—cynically putting through a crackdown as he was leaving office, timed to take effect after Deval Patrick had taken over, and so of course never to be implemented.

Eff all that BS...voter fraud. Elections and certain cities were rigged.

Whatever the excuses - there's still a disturbingly large, and growing, percentage of the population that's stupid enough, or dependent enough, to be conned by the Democrat-Leftist-Media Lie Machine. Again and again.

With Obama's demonstrated incompetence over the past 4 years, no way would he have been re-elected by rational, thinking persons - you deduce the rest.

Coulter is just another member of the NE/Washington media elite. Her job is to be a right wing bomb thrower. She is no different than Maher, Krauthammer, Colmes, etc. She plays a role and gets paid very well to do it.

People got on her case about speaking before a gay audience a couple of years back. However, for years she has said she is a friend to the gay community.

“Conservatives who denounced Romney as a “RINO” were the ones doing the bidding of the real establishment: business, which wants cheap labor and couldn’t care less if America ceases to be the land of opportunity that everyone wanted to immigrate to in the first place.”

"we should have had vans driving the hills of southern Ohio the Sunday before election day also offering rides to the polling place."

Obviously Romney's GOTV was a failure, but there would not have been enough votes available south of 1-70 and east of US 23 to offset Obama's plurality in either of Franklin or Cuyahoga County. Demographics is destiny as said earlier. The Somali fraud could not have happened if they were not in the country in the first place.

Republicans think people should be self-sufficient - in other words - get themselves to the polls. The Democrats on the other hand - do it for their voters. They take care of them - just more nanny state type of politics.

Republicans need to wake up before its too late. They need to get a conservative message out to the people. Ok, I’m dreaming here, aren’t I?

So it's all about race, huh Ann? Well, screw it then. The country is toast.

Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney, more than three times what McCain got.

But that is some hope for the future. Won't hear that stat on the MSM.

Yep. The cause of the problem is not immigration, that’s the effect. The cause is natural-born Americans having less children. That creates a vacuum that, for economic reasons alone, demands to be filled with immigration. Businesses need more workers and more people to buy their stuff. If enough people aren’t being produced indigenously, they will import them. And there will be plenty of cheap, vacant housing for immigrants to get as a result of the country’s low reproduction.

Yep, Romney actually gained enough with blacks over McCain that it probably totally offset his loss with Hispanics. His problem was with the white voters who didn’t show up.

What Ann is totally missing by focusing on race is that the income gap is much clearer. Romney won with those making over $50,000 and lost with those making less. The Republicans need to tailor a message to lower income voters of all races. Minorities probably lean Democrat because they are more likely to fall in the lower income range. Doesn’t really explain the Asians I guess, but that could be due to so many of them being highly educated at our finest communist institutions.

According to the current Wiki totals, Romney came 5 million votes closer to Obama than McCain did. Romney got slightly more votes than McCain while Obama got a lot less than Obama did in 2008. Most of the former Obama voters simply appeared not to show up, but even if they all showed up for Romney, Romney still would have lost the popular vote narrowly.

Only 3 candidates have ever gotten more votes than Romney, Bush the 2nd time and Obama both times. If anything, we should be looking at what worked in 2004 for us. But even Bush’s 2004 vote total would be well behind Obama’s.

The key to Obama’s wins is that he has turned out a lot more voters than anyone else has ever been able to. That tells me it’s much less a political thing and much more of a cult of personality appeal. Higher turnout from minorities relative to whites seems to have possibly saved him this time, while in 2008 he had enough white support that it really didn’t matter.

2012:
Obama: 65,392,680
Romney: 60,727,863

2008:
Obama: 69,498,516
McCain: 59,948,323

2004:
Bush: 62,040,610
Kerry: 59,028,444

Asian-Americans are one of the fastest growing population groups and have topped the Hispanics in immigration. Asians account for 5 percent of the population now. When Romney talked about “self-deportation” of immigrants in the primaries, that turned the Hispanics as well as the Asians off. The big thing is immigration policy and they do not see the Republicans as on board with their interests.

Also, Asian-Americans are not in tune with the Christian focus of the Republican party. Asians are a very diverse religious group. They are not looking at Christianity as a benefit to them.

Asians do not see the Republican attack on big government in their best interest either. They tend to cite jobs, education and health care as issues most important to them and generally prefer a big government that provides more services.

"Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney"

If this is true overall then statistically Romney should have gotten some votes even in Philadelphia.

Not to mention just plain old error should have produced a vote or two for Romney. This is a major tell. It wasn't just in one place but many places. That signals fraud.

****Reagan got just 43 percent of young voters in 1980****

I was one of those young people. In 1984 he got alot of support among young people. I remember going to a rally in 1984 on The Ohio State University campus at St John's Arena where Reagan was introduced by Woddy Hayes. The arena was full of young people.

Ann keeps using 1980 because Anderson really helps her numbers when she leaves him out.

The democrats won 44% of the total under 30 vote in 1980, and 36% of the total white vote in 1980.

2012 was a straight up election between Romney and Obama.

We had some Somali neighbors for a few years. Actually, they've settled several dozens of them around here over the last 20 years.

They are tough people, and almost all the refugees from Somalia are military folks.

By reputation they are very, very rugged and stand their ground, and are used to being on top ~ back home. Their self-reliance has brought them together in several communities around the country so they show up as groups.

Guy across the street was a general. He was the fellow who gave orders to the Somali army to undertake an exercise in the South while the Ethiopian army came in the North and exterminated the AlQaida located there ~ it was a total surprise.

So, he's here. His kids are here. All his closest relatives are here too and some of them are probably in that photo we are asked to look at and imagine has folks up to vote fraud.

We need more information to come to that judgment.

Then there was another Somali general placed in a safehouse a couple of blocks away. Some Title 8 folks thought he'd like to give them his money and they came down here and kidnapped his daughter.

He kept his money and his daughter and they all went to prison ~ easy to catch after he got done with them ~ these people are TOUGH! Great neighbors.

Not all of them are Moslems ~ which is why the attempts by AlQaida and other Middle Eastern crazy guys to mislead their sons into going back over there to fight has been REPORTED by the elders to the FBI, etc.

I would expect that after 20 years residency, plenty of them are legitimate voters by now. They probably attracted the attention of the photographers because they are dressed up in traditional East African sari's.

Do they speak English? The adults I've met speak English and a couple of other languages ~ they go to school to learn the current world language ~ the ones working in the 7/11s also speak Spanish!

This may be difficult for some to accept, but there are third-world people who value voting so highly they put on their best clothes to go vote. They consider it a sacred duty.

We need to go to those folks and explain to them why they are God's own Republican voters.

Philadelphia has entire precincts with no whites, no Republicans, no Libertarians ~ and you are surprised Romney didn’t get any votes there?
****************************************
When you have voter rolls that haven’t been cleaned up in many decades and one of every 6 Americans moves each year you have no explaination except election fraud to explain how with AT MOST 65-70% of the names on the poll list being valid ,, and with a 60% turnout .. it is HIGHLY SUSPECT if you get more than 45% of the roll turnout... That leaves the RAT precinct captains all day to manufacture vote cards to assign to the unused names (assuming they weren’t filled out weeks before).

There were NO 100% Romney precincts in the entire country ,, best he did was 97.x% in one tiny Texas district ... that is statistically what you would expect.

As to the 110% turnout 100% Obama Filthadelphia and Ohio districts that doesn’t match with the 4-5% non-Obama vote from Holders people ... I could believe 96% , 97% even 99% but not 100.00% from each precinct... some black people actually do vote ideology rather than skin color.

Most of Anderson's vote would have gone to Carter if Anderson hadn't been in the race.

Even if you wanted to say that some of the White liberals who supported Anderson would have gone for Reagan, it doesn't affect her basic argument.

So, no, her point is valid and using 1980 isn't any kind of trick.

That's another way of saying that if GOP voters can't get to the polls on their own, the party doesn't want their vote. Maybe the GOP shouldn't do political advertising - if voters can't figure out on their own that the GOP's the party for them, the party doesn't want their vote. Heck - the GOP should dismantle its think tanks - if voters can't figure why conservatism is the right political orientation for them, it's pointless for the GOP to hand them the moral equivalent of crutches.

Anderson was a lifelong republican, to the right of Mitt Romney, who was at first supported by Romney/Rockefeller’s wing of the GOP and he ran against Reagan in the primary before going Independent.

Republican Anderson ran as an Independent and hurt Reagan as much as Carter among the total vote, as he served as the middle ground between Carter and Reagan, a true right-winger.

This year, millions of whites just stayed home because of Romney. This year, the guy to the left of John Anderson, the anti-Reagan guy, Mitt Romney, was Jimmy Carter and John Anderson rolled into one.

Carter could only muster 44% of the total under 30 vote in 1980, and 36% of the total white vote in 1980.

Obama won about 40% of the white vote, and worst of all, Romney left millions of white votes on the table which hurt us down the ticket.

Romney was a disaster for republicans, and when you look at who he is and his relationship, or lack of it, to republican politics, you wonder, how in the heck did this fringe character take over the GOP?

“Why did the Asian vote go to Obama?
They believe in hard work, family, study/education, and start their own businesses and have fled from Gov’t domination.
So what gives?”

The answer flies in the face of neo-conservative dogma — which has been embraced by all too many who call themselves conservative.

Traditional American conservatism is a set of philosophical and moral values that was the creation of one ethnic group, which evolved through both experience and reason. And after a few hundred years, those values remain appealing within the confines of that same ethnic group.

Other ethnic groups just don’t seem interested in it, in larger than token numbers.

To put it another way, it’s as if the neo-cons believe that anyone and everyone can be “just like us”, if only given the opportunity. It assumes everyone (and every group) is “the same”. But to believe that is as much a fallacy as the notion that “all cultures are equal”. They are not.

If we wanted America to remain culturally unified, why did we do everything possible to Balkanize it? What other country anywhere in the world composed of unlike ethnic groups has remained united for very long?

The United States shall go down in the world’s history as first nation to ever deliberately Balkanize itself — and to fail for having done exactly that.

All modern politics is cult of personality. And that’s been one of our weaknesses lately, the guys we’re putting forth don’t have a personality. Romney is a white bread guy with a hard liberal background, easy for Dems to cast as “the enemy” and completely unexciting for what’s supposed to be his conservative base. The fact that he managed pull down 60 million votes is a sign of how many people just wanted to vote against Obama, but Romney never had a message, he never had a point to hammer home, he never had a counter attack. And a lot of that is because he had nothing to counter on, when the same group of advisers wrote both candidates signature legislation the challenger has nothing to run on.

Anderson drew more votes among self-described liberals than among self-described conservatives (what I've seen, and it's not certain is 3 to 1, 11 percent of liberals to 4 percent of conservatives), so it's likely that he hurt Carter more than Reagan.

Unquestionably, Reagan carried Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Maine, Wisconsin, and possibly other states only because Anderson was in the race, so in that way, Anderson definitely did hurt Carter more than Reagan.

I can see that you are obsessed by Romney, and that explains many of your posts. I don't see what it means to say Romney was more liberal than Anderson, though. Times and issues have changed so much that such a comparison isn't very meaningful.

Suffice it to say, John Anderson was endorsed by the very liberal New Republic in 1980. This year they were violently opposed to Mitt Romney.

By offering a Romneylike republican, Anderson helped bring out anti-Reagan voters who would have set at home.

Speaking of obsessions, one of us is a conservative fighting for conservatism and to make sure that a man who didn’t even belong in republican politics, doesn’t get white washed and become a GOP leader and continue to contaminate the party with his bizarre left wing politics and ideas, and you are obsessed with advancing him and protecting his dark and sinister influence.

Lifetime republican, Anderson was to the right of Romney, but they were both anti-Reagan.

Not much chance Romney is going to play a role from here on out. He wasn't a bad governor of Massachusetts and wasn't the worst candidate in this year's race. If there was somebody better in the race I would have supported that candidate.

But support Romney or not, I can't see much point in hounding or vilifying him (you do realize that you can oppose someone without doing that -- or maybe you don't). In any case, carrying on the abuse after he ceases to be a factor looks like a waste of time.

I guess you think your bona fides are proved by obsessively attacking Romney. I'm not sure that was ever the case. All this repeated talk of "contamination" may mark you down as something more dangerous. But by now it's probably time to move on to something more constructive.

Your obsessive defending, promoting, legitimizing of Mitt Romney is well recognized, you have an agenda, and he serves it at this point, plus you respect and embrace the views of the failed governor, whack case.

Romney wanted to run for reelection in Massachusetts, but he failed in that endeavor and had to end that dream when his own internals told him that he had disastrous poll numbers.

Romney devastated the state party, crawled out of office with 34% approval, lost the seat to the democrats, and they have held it since, Mitt had been the 4th GOP governor in a row, in a state that normally prefers GOP governors, Mitt has probably ended that.

Now we have to try and fix what he has broken in the national republican party and image.

Romney has contaminated the GOP brand and has introduced hard core leftism and socialism to the GOP presidency, he has made it legitimate to support his radical leftist agenda, and has emboldened players like you.

Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney, more than three times what McCain got. But that is some hope for the future. Won't hear that stat on the MSM.
