Why Are Nearly Half the Voters Still Slobbering Over Obama?
bernardgoldberg ^

Posted on 07/21/2014 12:01:52 PM PDT by chessplayer

I don’t get it. According to Rasmussen, 47 percent of likely voters approve of the job President Obama is doing.

They called Ronald Reagan the Teflon president but the title now belongs to Barack Obama. Nothing sticks to him. Not Fast and Furious, not the trouble associated with ObamaCare, not Benghazi, not the IRS scandal, not the deal for Bergdahl, I’m betting not the border crisis and not anything else, including his less than forceful response to Mr. Putin for Russia’s role in the Malaysian plane disaster.

If he was eligible to run again, he would be reelected in a landslide no matter who ran against him.

Worse yet, after he is out of office he won’t be able to keep his stupid-advice-lending yapper shut.

He’ll be worse than Jimmuh and Bubba combined.

It’s the magic 47 percent that people screamed at Mitt about. The teat-suckers who only approve of government based on what’s in their mailbox the first and the fifteenth.

Because they would vote for Satan rather than a conservative, they can’t admit that they voted for The Worst President Ever.

That is the Colorado answer. Rasmussen seems to have been taken over by liberals.

The power of NLP. He says a few things people were longing to hear during one campaign and they never stop voting for him, no matter what comes afterward.

Because Romney was right - roughly 47% of the people get a net handout from the government and they see no reason to not get it or to vote for the guy who might cut it. As long as the gravy train keeps coming, they love him, even if the rest of the country is falling apart around them.

No, it applies for more than CO. In CO. It may be legal, but it’s everywhere. Libs want to legalize it because it makes the people more malleable, and they get tax money to spend to take care of the people that think the ‘right way’.

Dope & Dependency. Libs love it!

They, and half the country, still slobber over Obama because their attraction to him is beyond policy agreement. Back in 2007 and 2008, they developed an emotional bond with him that will not be broken. This transcends the political realm. It’s a heart-and-soul emotional attachment.

That “47%” number seems to come up again and again.

Mitt Romney:

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what.”

My prediction for 2016 is that the Democrats will nominate Eric Holder to run for president.

It will be billed as Obama's third term, and Holder will continue the "historic" Black presidency. Besides, he will need the shield of racism to continue the liberal destruction of the United States.

Those who still slobber over the Usurper are either gibsmedats or idiots.

It’s funny, well, not really. But CO. was the source, back in the day, of certain paraphernalia that changed the way certain stuff was consumed.

Unfortunately, I really liked it.

Thankfully, I woke up one day and asked myself WTF was I doing, and walked away, and never looked back.

Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and aspirin have been my non script drugs ever since. I even shy away from script pain meds, unless the pain is really severe, like crying myself to sleep.

As I'm reading through the thread, you're the first poster to say something that has relevance to breaking into that 47%.

I'll bring your statement one step further. That abused woman will leave the bad relationship if she has confidence that a new better one is available. There has to be clarity about why that new relationship is better. A new political relationship with the Republican Party? They talk the talk, then make so many compromises that they deliver on nothing.

"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss...won't get fooled again"

Voters are not going to leave the known bad deal with Obama for what might be a worse deal with the 'pubs, who stand for nothing.

Because 47% of the population get stuff from the government instead of paying taxes. Apparently about 10% of those people have stopped slobbering because it turns out not all of the “free stuff” is actually free.

Maybe that’s the problem when you consider the News is controlled by the NY slimes, NBC, CBS, ABC & CNN.
