The only way obama is a “popular” president is because the republicans are losers and suck-ups and cowards. Mandate? The republicans know his “mandate” came from voter fraud yet are too chickencrap to say anything about it.
And of course, instead of being gracious when boner says “We’re backing down”, obama says “Na, na, nah, na, na”.
The republicans would have been better off saying “We’re going home until the next election. Let’s see what happens after two years of obama and the democrats getting their way on EVERYTHING. Then we’ll say ‘na-na-nah-na-na.’”
One more thing, the republicans said “obama is a nice guy who’s in over his head”. I haven’t heard them saying that lately. He’s kicked their asses at every turn. He may be in over his head but he’s not as far under as the republicans. Talk about incompetent.
For the most part we have been losing registered voters due to a greater than average death rate as the Baby Boomers get into their 60s. They must be replaced at a higher than average rate ~ so far we are running way behind 2004 where George Bush got 64 million votes!
The Democrats face the same problem and their vote totals dropped 4 million votes in 2012 just like ours did in 2008.
There are another 90 million adults who are not registered, or who are registered but just don't vote. Certainly some of them are interested in voting for qualified Republican Conservatives.
Could be our turn toward the Left has left them with no home ~ maybe we have to just dump the Leftists and their running dog lackeys ~ as soon as possible. Make a big show of it and see if we can pick up registrations!
