Giving the Chicago thug a second term was the same as committing mass suicide. Great job Obamanoids!

71% regret their decision to vote for Obama
79% would still vote for Obama over Romney

No one ever went broke underestimating the illogic of the American public, eh?

Supposedly, according to this article, 39% of blacks regret voting for Obamugabe.

I find this highly suspect.

"“Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?”

— Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no.

— 80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes."




Nice trends. :-) Someone has woken up even if just a little.

The poll data suggests even now that the Republicans lost the election with Romney more than the dims won with obummer.

Be very afraid, the hildabeast is being sold as the next messiah since the current one didn't work out so well...

They “regret” voting for Obama but had no choice. Josef Stalin and Pol Pot weren’t available.

Today is the start of our Primary Election in TEXAS.

Please encourage to vote all y’alls, (FYI: that is the Official Plural of y’all), TEXAS FRiends with this:

________________

IMHO, the recent following two quotes by Conservative Commentator Eric Erickson highlight why Conservative TEXANS should make their votes count in this Primary Election:

1.) “ - - - As all of us know, we may not live in Texas, but Texas affects us and we all probably secretly or not so secretly want to live there. - - - “

2. ) “ - - - - It’s imperative that Texas have strong conservative leadership – because as Texas goes, so goes America. - - - “

______________________

BTW, copy and substitute y’alls States’ names for use in y’alls Primary Elections!

And the aggravating thing is, everything he’s doing now was foreseeable before the election. He even boasted about it. All they had to do was pay attention, inform themselves a little. But no, the cult of personality (!), white guilt, spite, class warfare, etc, mattered so much more.

For the same reason blacks will not buy a car or major purchase from a black owned and run car dealership. This has been a major problem for the big three in achieving a little dealership diversity.

You assume their regret is for good reasons. Maybe it's because he's being stingy with his 'stash.

I sensed that the day after the election. Everyone was quiet and not talking about anything. I suspect many hoped that they would vote for him to make themselves feel good, but really wanted him to loose. Oops.

I keep automated systems running in a very large industrial factory. To the extent that I have any slow-time in my work schedule, the welfare to work crowd keeps me very busy.

My phone and radio is non-stop. There is a definate split in their culture however. A few of the smartest engineers and highly skilled machinists I've ever dealt with are black.

It's the LIV or the welfare crowd that makes the biggest mess. That bunch is also dismissive of any accomplished smartest guy in the building if he's black. I just don't get it?

There is something screwy with this poll. Look at the full internals: Question 3 asked Obama voters if they would vote for him again. 79% said yes, 10% said no. Question 4 asked Obama voters if they regretted voting for him. 71% said yes, 29% said no. Those numbers, taken together, make absolutely no sense.

Also, Question 3 had a total of 396 responses, while Question 4 only had 35 responses. (the same thing is true of the Romney set of questions, too - the “would you vote for him again” question got 363 responses, while the “do you regret your vote?” question got only 10 responses).

you know... I can “almost” forgive them for voting for Obama the first time around. Especially since the alternative was McLame.

But a 2nd time !?! WTF were they thinking?!?

If that many blacks regret their vote... it’s only because Obama hasn’t paid their rent out of his “stash”.

This^^

I am absolutely convinced that Americans, especially liberals who think only with their emotions, are very easily manipulated. Therefore, they are easily subject to whatever momentum is in play. I mean, how else do you explain very late in most national elections big, wide swings in polls.

The answer is that Americans no longer have core values to guide them, rather, they are easily manipulated by TV ads and will vote for the last ad they liked and if enough celebrities and others are supporting the candidate. In short, the Presidential election is basically American Idol, writ large.

And this is why Obama would win election again. Obama would spend a billion dollars trashing the opponent. Celebrities would work relentlessly to bring along the dumb, and the corrupt MSM would pimp Obama, as would every Hollywood sitcom and movie.

Again, Americans have no core values, hence they are easily manipulated through their emotions.

Still, that means about 20% would vote Romney over Obama.

Take away 20% of the Clown’s voters and give them to Romney, and we would at least have someone who loves America in the White House.

Congratulations to those who are waking up.

Five easy actions:

1. IDENTIFY Socialists/Totalitarians.

2. DEFUND socialist collectives.

3. DEPOPULATE socialists/totalitarians from the body politic and their enablers/sycophants from your life.

4. EDUCATE family, friends and anyone who is receptive.

5. CONGRATULATE yourself on a productive life enjoyed and well-lived.

It’s easy to…

live - free - republic

I’m sure that at this point Obama doesn’t give a damn. He’s not going anywhere and he’s just happy to continue his destruction of the country with his sidekick ValJar. He knows there is no one to stop him.

It's like that lady who bubbled over with joy after his election. "Obama will pay for my mortgage and gas bills!"

I assume he never stopped by her house with his wad of 'stash, so maybe now she regrets voting for him...

In the 70’s on a trip to Florida as a child I saw a billboard as we pulled into Georgia. It was on the highway and said “We the farmers of Georgia apologize for putting Jimmy Carter in office.” I wish I had a picture of it.
