So how did he get re-elected?
Big money will purchase lots of votes...
Goodies. A lot of free goodies (and no voter ID laws).
2012 will go down in history as "The Year of the Parasitic Voter."
Voter fraud, massive voter fraud.
I am still shaking my head. How did we reelect such an inept person again?
In some counties in Ohio he won by 108%.Take a guess and look for the union lable.
IMO, economic optimism. Things always look best from the top. Also IMO, if the election had been held 6-9 months in either direction, the results would have been different. But they weren't. At least he's starting 2.0 with a lower approval rating than Bush 43.
The parasites have a self-interest in voting. They vote in hordes, to the person who will give them the most - for doing absolutely nothing more than voting. They now get to sit on their backsides, get free housing, free food, free medical, free spending money, free phones ... all from Obama's secret stash.
The producers, the achievers were too lazy, to self-involved to get out and vote. Too many people work their lives to support their families, start/manage their companies - and ignore the bigger picture. No amount of effort on an individual's part can overcome a bureaucracy bent upon taxing the achiever into insolvency. Glen Beck said it best - we outnumber, we surround THEM. But, we are too lazy, ignorant and lack the will to vote en-mass.
How many "Patriots" refused to vote for Mitt because he was a Mormon? There were more than a few Freepers who refused to vote for a Mormon, for no other reason than that they disliked his religion. Given a choice between a Mormon in office, or Obama- many chose Obama. Now we can all enjoy the consequences of these people's decision.
When you're black, socialist, appeal to stupid people and run against an even more stupid party/person (e.g. Repubs/Romney), not much else matters. Certainly not approval ratings.
