I ask you on the day of your daughter's wedding. Do you really believe that? Me? I ain't so sure. I live in a country where 53% of the voters had no trouble pulling the lever for a jive-ass Chicago Community Organizer, whose very name is not a settled question.
With $4 gas, and 10% unemployment (at least), that same 53% is still out there. "Conservatism" requires thoughtful analysis, enlightened self-interest, the ability to detect the difference between bullshiite and Shinola, etc.
My research over to the Wal-Mart parking lot has convinced me that these attributes are in shorter supply than we might like.
“I live in a country where 53% of the voters had no trouble pulling the lever for a jive-ass Chicago Community Organizer, whose very name is not a settled question.”
I’m not sure about that. I think we are underestimating the scope of election fraud. I very much doubt that he got more than 45% of the valid votes cast.
Even if he did get 53%, that represents what...a quarter of eligible voters, approximately?
Why the low turnout? Must have been because McLame was so inspiring.
Not all of the Walmartians are stupid or completely lacking in common sense. I think a lot of people are starting to make the connections between taxation, over-regulation, and the scarcity of jobs.
Admittedly I am living in a very red state, but I have only seen two “Obama 2012” bumper stickers so far.
On top of that, the wackadoo wing of the extreme left are miffed with the Kenyan commie for failing to display a sufficient degree of lunacy.
If the Stupid, Cowardly, Rubber-Chicken-Eating, Surrender-Sissy Party mounted a halfway adequate campaign (I know, figure the odds), they could choose a sack of leper butts for their nominee and still beat the loathesome alien.
