Obama: I Need New Yorkers to Move West and Vote Democrat
by Charlie Spiering 15 May 2014, 7:41 AM PDT President Obama joked during a New York fundraiser that he needed the attendees to move west to increase his support.
During his speech, Obama told a story about a woman who asked how she could help him, and he joked that she should move to North Dakota.
If I could just get about a million excess votes in Brooklyn out to Nebraska, Wyoming, wed be doing okay, Obama said as the crowd laughed. I don't need 80 percent of the vote here.
Obama complained about structural disadvantages with the political system, pointing out that although Republican ideas did not have support from the majority of Americans, the political system kept Democratic majorities out of reach.
We have a congenital disease, which is: during midterms our voters don't show up. That's what it comes down to, he said. That and population distribution and gerrymandering.
Obama said he had been stymied in trying to enact his agenda because "Washington doesn't work."
The challenge we've got is very simple: Washington doesnt work. It's not as if we've got no good ideas on policy. We've got tons of them. I've got a drawer full of things that we know would create jobs, help our middle class, boost incomes, make us more competitive. But we have a party on the other side that has been captured by an ideology that says no to everything because they cling to a rigid theory that the only way to grow the economy is for government to be dismantled and let the market sort things out, and folks at the top doing very well will somehow automatically trickle down to everybody else.

another scripted marxist moment. pathetic.
Why don’t you just invent them Obama, like you do in Ohio, Florida, N.C, Va, Wisc...?
Sounds to me like he is already starting to whine the excuses, six months before the fact.
Keep going west till you get just past California.
That’s what happened here, the libs fled West from their their self made craphole in Baltimore to here and brought their crap with them, voting Dem,.
“I Like My Guns Like Obongo Likes His Voters;UnDocumented”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“President Obama joked during a New York fundraiser that he needed the attendees to move west to increase his support.”
Inside of every “joke” there is a certain amount of truth.
He forgot the most important part of that sentence: “Because the Westerners are onto me and won’t buy my horse puckie.’
Don’t stop until they reach Crimea.
They can just invent votes, like they do everywhere else.
“I. . . .” ???????????????
Bathhouse Barry’s idea may really be working. I know an abortion clinic owner in Texas who moved to New Mexico because she didn’t like the political atmosphere in Texas. Yeah, she moved to Santa Fe.
Keep the damn liberals in NY and wherever they are so we can keep a better eye on them. We DO NOT need those kind in the west or anywhere else.
I can’t wait for odumbo to be “gone”, permanently!
“It’s not as if we’ve got no good ideas on policy. We’ve got tons of them. I’ve got a drawer full of things that we know would create jobs, help our middle class, boost incomes, make us more competitive.”
He’s got a genie bag full of grand ideas like cap and trade and smart meters to go on top of past liberal ideas such as low flow toilets and protecting lizards on public lands. All imposed by a fascist government straight out of Orwell....where the bleep is Rod Serling?
Inside every “joke” there is a certain amount of egomania in this case.
In NC we have the once charming little town of Cary - suburb of Raleigh. Now it’s growing like a weed
.and its the
Problem is, their vote pollutes the whole state.
Hmmm... if you can't succeed by following the rules... monkey with the rules.
This is a statement by “O” which tells you all you need to know about how he ‘thinks’.
It is idiotic, crude and blunt... but, there you have it!
They won’t like it out here. We shoot bandits or hang ‘em high. The others we tar and feather. We know sh&*t from Shinola. We don’t much cotton to being told how to live our lives by Easterners. There’s b’ars out here and you need guns to shoot ‘em. Not a fitten’ place for pansy city-folks.
So, if during midterms, his voters don’t show up, whose fault is that?
As far as gerrymandering, I disregard such comments, because Democrats gerrymander when they are in control of redistricting.
Regarding Republicans being the minority, how does he arrive at such a conclusion? There are more Republicans than Democrats in the House of Representatives. Republicans control many more state legislatures and governorships than do Democrats.
Regarding population distribution, could it be that Democrats and people like Obama, just haven’t made the case to people in many parts of the country? Big cities tend to vote heavily Democrat, and suburbs of big cities tend to be split between the parties. Small town and rural America tends to vote heavily Republican. Whose fault is it, if Obama hasn’t persuaded big numbers of small town and rural voters to vote Democrat??????
The white house clown can save the effort. There are moron governors out there with functioning economies actively recrruiting liberals in New York and California to move to their states. Because you really want people moving to your state who have fouled their own nests.
To me this is proof enough that there is a master plan.
Open the borders in CA to illegals and H1B...
CA residents ready to retire sell their homes and move to cheaper places east...
Former CA residents transform new locations into mini-CA...
30 years from now, the USA looks just like CA
This is clearly been happening in OR, AZ, NV and CO for 20 years.
Maybe it's not so unreasonable...
Why? He has his 2 for 1 voting machines and cemeteries.
Unfortunately for Obuttboy, the New Yorkers and other folks from the northeast who are moving out West tend to be Conservatives who have had it with Socialism. They are moving West to escape statism and find like-minded patriots.
Relocation camps. It is what big government leftist all dream about.
Actually, the reverse is also true: imagine if the interior of California or the Illinois population outside of Chicago emigrated to Delaware, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Vermont....we would see a much more Republican New England.
Or, if they moved to so-called PURPLE states to tip the balance.
Here in Arizona, I live in an overwhelmingly Republican town. It and the other heavily Republican, military, (and Mormon) dominated area of the state were fed to the Democratic wolves by a Republican legislature.
It’s absolutely criminal, a district of patriots in Yuma overwhelmed by minorities from Tucson on the other side of the state, and represented by Mo Udall, Ed Pastor, and now Raul Grijalva. The district and my own was approved by Republicans deliberately and decisively limiting their own power.
During the Soviet era, millions of Russians were deliberately resettled in the other republics (the Baltics, Kazakhstan and Ukraine in particular) to reduce the political strength of the local populations and the threat their nationalist inclinations presented.
Perhaps Obama is thinking of a similar plan.
He smirks when he says it but he is NOT joking.
The Anti-Children, Free Stuff Greedy Voters.
Your Family Dynasty list
Is well intended,
Of that Im very sure.
What is lacking are the reasons
That these family jobs endure.
We-who vote them in,
Must have our reasons?
We-who re-elect them,
Must have reasons too?
What the reasons are
It is obvious to know:
We all like to LIVE LARGE,
As we pursue what is good and free,
Charge everything to our kids:
charge, Charge, CHARGE!
Politicians will be politicians,
Just as boys will be boys.
Is what we laugh and say,
By those who hate their kids
And vote to make them pay, Pay, PAY!
No! You say, NO!
Youre not talking about ME!
I LOVE my kids! is your reply - - -
But who will be stuck
To pay your greedy free stuff bills,
When you die, Die, DIE?
In 2014 it is time, - - - time for a change.
.... So ... It's all about what Obama needs eh? ... Guess in his narcissistic mind that's supposed to be the same thing as what America needs? Oh ... I get it .... "I and America ... are One, and all others are zeros"
I wish he would move west - west to Red China where he belongs. And take the liberal New Yorkers all with him.
He’s not joking. Unfortunately for him/dims, it’s too late to affect 2014.
In other words, spread the infection.
I thought that’s what the illegal aliens were for. Why do we need New Yawkers out here. We don’t have a lot of sidewalks.
Funny..he telling you the reason dem also want illegals in..flood non dem areas with excess dem voters from other areas..
so why would a dem voter want to leave a dem controlled area..then have there majority there they have there policy there it should be the paradise they say it creates.
You ever notice how the foot traffice flows..we run from there socialist paradise. But they also run from their socialist paradise...
Just looking at the headlines, and considering the day’s stories - foreign policy, economy, takeover of health care- the campaign, the 2014 and ever looming 2016, that is, the race seems to be between BO and Cruz.
Putin has probably suggested it to him during their private chats.
That’s what happens when you intentionally put all your voters in the population centers. You can win presidential elections and senate seats (state-wide races) but congressional districts and local legislative seats are filled with republicans.
They absolutely loved it when they controlled the country after the censuses of 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970 and even 1980. But after the 1990 census, the 2000 census, and the 2010 census, power shifted significantly, as reflected in the various legislatures across the country.
I know it’s not healthy but I really hate this piece of poop. I’m starting to really hate those who voted and still support him.
To me, it sounded like he was joking......but not really. And a forced move would be exactly how his tiny little mind thinks.
Oh, I’d love to see those limousine liberals in North Dakota. They’d buy up all the oceanfront property there.
Anyone notice that most of the Demorat States are pushing for Presidential election by "popular vote",
rather than by the Electoral College ?
They must be getting ready to offer more 'freebies' for elections , and not have to resort to regional distribution state-by-state.
That's all we need: more distribution of entitlements , and less responsibility and accountability .
Obama doesn’t understand you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
If you didn’t insult Republicans everytime you open your mouth, they might be more reluctant to work with you.
But when you go around calling people, rigid, ignorant, and the party of NO, they are not in the mood to work with you.
Translation: Voting machines are all rigged in New York, so we need more democrats in the red states because we haven’t been able to rig corrupt elections there yet...
And we need to divide electoral votes by congressional district, no more winner take all states.
