Skip to comments.Five things the American people wished they had known before they voted in 2012
Posted on 05/16/2013 2:15:58 PM PDT by Abakumov
Last November Barack Obama squeaked through with arguably the weakest reelection in American history. He won the race even though he got fewer popular and electoral votes than in 2008. But would he have been given a second term if voters knew what his administration had been up to? Lets review...

We ran two of the worst possible candidates against Obama? Will we do it again? Will the next one be even worse?
Probably worse. Think Rubio. Or Jeb Bush.
So far, I can’t think of anyone but Cruz that has really been a champion of conservatism. Maybe I’m missing a governor with presidential potential?
Weaker even than King William in ‘96?
Pretty much of a “nothing” kind of an article.
1. Using the IRS to systematically target and intimidate conservative political groups.
2. Using the Justice Department covertly to collect information on the press.
3. The Benghazi coverup
4. The Obamacare train wreck.
5. Obama the tuned-out caretaker president. The White House line thus far regarding the scandals is that Mr. Obama knew nothing about anything.
All of which we knew, at least in general terms, before 2012. Hell, before 2008 we knew he was this kind of guy.
” So far, I cant think of anyone but Cruz that has really been a champion of conservatism. “
Cruz is it. Pathetic, isn’t it?
Romney would have been 100x better, but you purists out there just enjoy whats going on now, and know that you deserve it all...the IRS, the Benghazi, the AP, the millions of health records taken by the IRS....
you just enjoy this okay?
Gosh mister, at least we didn’t elect a MORMON!!!
No, we tried to elect a VERY RICH, VERY LIBERAL, MORMON!
Just what the average American was longing for.....
By the way Cherry, I voted for the POS, Romney.
Yes, Obama’s reelection was weaker than Clinton’s in 1996.
Clinton won in 1992 with about 43% of the popular vote in a 3 way race, and got 370 electoral votes. In 1996, Clinton improved to 49% of the popular vote, again in a 3 way race, and improved to 379 electoral votes.
Obama was a rare reelection in which the incumbent had less support than he had in his original election.
Clinton in a 3-way race increased his vote totals over 1992. Obama in a 2 way race lost both electoral and popular votes from 2008. Quite an accomplishment.
The “Amarican People” would have voted the same way anyway, no matter what they might have known before the election.

BOOBAMBA'S HORRIFYING JUDICIAL NOMINEE---Blood-thirsty Cornelia Pillard is a radical pro-abortion extremist. The right to an abortion, she argues, is necessary to help free women from historically routine conscription into maternity. She also contends that men and women who oppose government mandates on employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception reinforce broader patterns of discrimination against women as a class of presumptive breeders.
Pillard complains ultrasound produces deceptive images of fetus-as-autonomous-being that the 'anti-choice movement' has popularized since the advent of amniocentesis. The notion that ultrasound produces images of autonomous beings is absurd. No one claims that the images are of something that is autonomous. Pillards concern is that ultrasound images look too much like something people want to protect. (powerlineblog.com)
Harvard and Yale graduate Pillard now a Georgetown U law professor---previously served as a deputy assistant to the attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel and assistant to the solicitor general.
BOOBAMBA SPEAKS The D.C. Circuit is known as the second highest court in the country, and theres a good reason for that. The judges on the D.C. Circuit routinely have the final say on a broad range of cases involving everything from national security to environmental policy; from questions of campaign finance to workers rights. In other words, the courts decisions impact almost every aspect of our lives, Obama said in nominating Pillard. (theblaze.com)
I could not vote for a man who when he prays to my God, my God does not hear. Our punishment for some voting for him is Obama. My conscience is clear and I will trust in God, Jesus Christ incarnate.
I have two FORMER friends who voted for Obama in ‘08. They did it again in ‘12 because they said having Barack as President was better than the other guy. Good grief. How’s that working for y’all now? dip shits.
Are they any less intelligent than those who refused to vote for the better man?
Low-information voters are everywhere including nowhere.
In my opinion they refused to vote for the better man when they voted for Obama. So your question makes me wonder exactly who did you consider to be the better man...?
Romney of course.
(Herman Cain was my choice but he was not the final candidate)
