Apocalyptic Panic At The Black Hole

A little over a month ago we wrote “Panic!!!! The Three Great Battles To Come“.

Now Obama Dimocratic “panic” is the conventional wisdom. Every day a major publication talks of the “panic” among the Hopium Guzzlers. Every day a prominent national voice, without shame or restraint, yells “panic”.

Panic! Panic! is everywhere. Dems beginning to panic at Team Obama incompetence?:

“If this holds up, Democrats may be past the point of hitting the panic button, and perhaps need to be looking for the lifeboats. If Obama loses just one of these states, it’s almost impossible for him to win the election. Getting to the point of losing any of these states would mean that Ohio and Florida are probably already out of reach, and Virginia very much in play. Losing two of these states would nearly eliminate any mathematical path to Electoral College victory, and losing all three would mean a landslide victory for Romney. If all three just remain competitive, Obama will have to spend a lot of money and attention on defense in traditional Democratic strongholds, meaning less time and attention in what had been considered swing states like Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Iowa, and the interior West — all of which he won in 2008.

The economy will be the key for these states. If it continues to falter over the summer, Democrats had better switch to a strategy of preserving what they can in the Senate and House. If Republicans become competitive in these key states, Democrats may lose a lot more ground than just the White House.”

At the Washington Post, Karen Tumulty has her life preserver on and is yelling “Panic!”:

“Obama campaign’s rough patch concerns some Democrats

Is it time for Democrats to panic?

That’s what a growing number of party loyalists are wondering, amid a rough couple of weeks in which President Obama and his political operation have been buffeted by bad economic news, their own gaffes and signs that the presumed Republican nominee is gaining strength. [snip]

“We will face an impossible head wind in November if we do not move to a new narrative, one that contextualizes the recovery, but, more importantly, focuses on what we will do to make a better future for the middle class,” Greenberg, Carville and pollster Erica Seifert wrote. They added: “They know we are in a new normal where life is a struggle — and convincing them that things are good enough for those who have found jobs is a fool’s errand.

The memo came days after Obama handed the Republicans new ammunition with his declaration at a news conference that “the private sector is doing fine.” [snip]

Obama’s advisers say his campaign has advantages that will be critical if the race remains close. While the Republicans were slugging it out in a long and bitter primary, the Obama campaign was building its ground operation in key states — to a degree that Democrats think Romney won’t be able to match.

“They are laser-focused on the key 13 states, and within those key battleground states, there is a world of work being done,” said Durbin, who added that he has had three extensive briefings on Obama’s grass-roots operation.

Even compared with the impressive ground campaign of 2008, “they know more about the swing voters and how to reach them,” he said.”

It’s the economy, stupid but the author of that phrase warns Obama not to talk about the economy because Obama has nothing to say that is either believable or helpful to his campaign.

The defense from the Obama young white boys at Chicago headquarters is that the massive Obama machine is data-mining and has all sorts of new gizmos, gadgets, and thingamagigs with which to win votes – is laughable. Did any of this Obama machine help in Wisconsin? Did data-mining help in Wisconsin? Did the alleged massive Obama “ground game” help in Wisconsin? Did any of this hideous apparatus, this massive expensive Titanic, salvage Obama Dimocrats in 2010?

It was time to panic when Scott Brown won in 2009. It was time to panic when Chris Christie won in 2009. It was time to panic when Obama told his Dimocrats not to worry “you’ve got me.”

In a new poll today there is news from Wisconsin. Rasmussen: Romney up in Wisconsin, 47/44. So much for those Wisconsin election night exit polls Obama Dimocrats hung their high hope hats on.

Big Labor has big headaches in Wisconsin (and the nation as well):

“Mitt Romney now leads President Obama for the first time in Wisconsin where the president’s support has fallen to its lowest level to date. [snip]

Most voters (51%) in the state view public employee unions unfavorably, while 46% share a favorable opinion of them. This includes 33% with a Very Unfavorable view of the unions and 27% with a Very Favorable one. The president draws overwhelming support from voters who view public employee unions favorably, while Romney draws equally heavy support from those who view them unfavorably.

Forty-seven percent (47%) of voters in Wisconsin approve of the job Obama is doing, while 52% disapprove.”

Time to panic? That was in 2008 when the Democratic establishment forced Barack Obama onto the party rank and file and later onto the nation. Time to panic? According to Obama friendly Josh Kraushaar at National Journal, the parapets are under siege. The turrets are overrun with ladders and siege equipment. Romney Scaling the Blue Wall:

Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are looking increasingly within reach.

For much of the presidential campaign, President Obama’s top strategists have outlined their numerous paths to 270 electoral votes: win Florida, sweep the Southwest, or pick off a Southern state or two. But they didn’t prepare for the possibility that working-class white voters in the Rust Belt could abandon the president en masse, throwing his well-laid plans into disarray.”



Those embarrassing “scenarios”. We remember when the Obama campaign was declaring that they could win Georgia. Even Texas was in play according to the Obama henchmen. Now, too late, reality begins to dawn, and panic strangles the muscle that pumps blood. All those schemes, all those scenarios won’t alter reality. They should have listened to us.

We warned against Obama and his “situation comedy demographics” and the doom it would cause. When Scott Brown won we reminded them of their massive mistake:

“Scott Brown was a terrific candidate – because he understood Barack Obama and the Dimocrats abandoned the white working class and the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton Coalition. Obama and his Dimocrats abandoned the winning coalition for their newfangled “situation comedy” coalition. Scott Brown, deservedly or not, grabbed the winning Democratic Coalition orphaned by Barack Obama and the Obamination corruption we refer to as the “Dimocratic” Party. [snip]

the elderly, white workers, the middle class, are no longer the coalition Dimocrats consider their base.

The Obama/Axelrod/Brazile vision for the Democratic Party mimics the desired demographics for a television sitcom.

As the long suffering Donna declared “A new Democratic coalition is younger. It is more urban, as well as suburban, and we don’t have to just rely on white blue-collar voters and Hispanics.”

Axelrod has declared “The white working class has gone to the Republican nominee for many elections, going back even to the Clinton years. This is not new that Democratic candidates don’t rely solely on those votes”.

This cheap vision of the Democratic Party is applauded and defended by many of the well-off, highly educated, white, eggheads inside the Democratic Party. Why is this?

The very simple answer is because since the middle of the last century the “eggheads” (as Paul Begala so aptly categorizes them) have failed repeatedly to win. The failures can usually be attributed to those pesky white voters that reject Democrats. Instead of trying to win them over, Obama/Eggheads want to roll over them. [snip]

Can you hear the Democratic Coalition of FDR and Hillary Clinton as it tectonically shifts from Blue to Brown and eventually to Red?

The White Working Class voters are coming home…. to roost… and support the Romney campaign:

“With the economy struggling to pick up steam, three must-win “blue-wall” states are looking increasingly winnable for the Romney campaign: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Both election results (from the Wisconsin gubernatorial recall) and reputable polling show that all three states are shaping up to be highly competitive, and that both campaigns will be devoting significant resources there.

Three new polls underscore why Team Obama has reason to be concerned about their standing in the Rust Belt. [snip]

Macomb County was home base for Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg’s seminal 1985 analysis of Reagan Democrats, which concluded that they were leaving the Democratic fold over cultural issues. Democrats have made significant inroads since then—Obama won the county 53 to 45 percent in 2008—but the sentiments of working-class whites are changing due to the weak economy.

“They know we are in a new normal where life is a struggle—and convincing them that things are good enough for those who have found jobs is a fool’s errand,” wrote Democratic strategists Greenberg and James Carville this week, assessing the results of their focus group among working-class voters in Columbus, Ohio. “They want to know the plans for making things better in a serious way—not just focusing on finishing up the work of the recovery.”

Those sentiments translate to Pennsylvania, a blue-collar state where Obama underperformed in 2008 relative to his national gains. [snip]

I think it is definitely in play,” former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, said at a Bloomberg News roundtable last week. “I said from the beginning, Mitt Romney is the only candidate who had a chance to do well enough in the Philadelphia suburbs to carry the state.” [snip]

The combination of white-hot Republican enthusiasm combined with Democratic struggles to win over the working class ensures that Wisconsin will be a battleground. In the wake of the recall, Romney’s campaign is moving resources into the state, and Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina publicly ranked it as a toss-up for November in a video to supporters. Romney is expected to perform as strongly as Walker with the Republican suburbanites; his big challenge is to maintain Walker’s sizable edge with the working-class voters as well.

It’s no coincidence that Mitt Romney’s “Every Town Counts” bus tour, which kicks off on Friday, is focused on winning over working-class whites, hitting the blue-wall battlegrounds along with three other blue-collar bastions: Ohio, Iowa, and New Hampshire. Romney, despite his privileged pedigree, knows that winning over the working-class voters dissatisfied with Obama’s record on the economy is a prerequisite for winning the election.”

Our regular readers will not be surprised by any of this. We’ve discussed this Obama “situation comedy” coalition before in a long running series.

We’ve also discussed what we call the “Mistake In ’08” for years now in a long running series [HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

The panic should have set in a long time ago. Now we are at the Apocalypse. What we are witnessing now is a massive black hole swallowing up entire political galaxies.

When we, in February 2011, discussed the collective bargaining fight in Wisconsin we wrote:

“For too long the Democratic Party relied on labor unions to do just about everything. The payoff for public labor unions was a friendly negotiator across the table. Nothing wrong with that arrangement except that ultimately it hurt the workers as they increasingly became cogs in a Big Labor machine that cared about them less and less. The Democratic Party was ultimately hurt too.

The Democratic Party atrophied with its dependence on labor unions to supply the manpower and womanpower, along with the financing for campaigns as well as the headquarters and field offices. Along with union endorsements came money and workers and therefore the game became union endorsements instead of outreach to individuals. The game was not to appeal to the workers but instead to romance the Big Labor union bosses. We’re all guilty of this – Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton included.

For the unions, the workers became less important. The workers essentially became only dues payers. The Big Labor bosses increasingly ignored the plight of the workers and only cared that the dues were paid. With the money from the workers’ dues unions paid for political protection and friendly negotiators in the public service labor arena. Instead of spending all their money on union organizing and increasing their ranks, unions saw their easy path on the political highway. Republicans noticed.

In the wake of Barack Obama’s election it all began to fall apart.”

We used to say that the election of Barack Obama was the biggest political mistake on this continent since the South fired on Fort Sumter. Just as the armies of the Confederacy saw their cities burn and their fields salted with blood the Obama Dimocratic Party is at the abyss.

It is not just the Obama Dimocratic Party that is about to burn in the Apocalyptic American Götterdämmerung. The astronomical black hole Obama Dimocrats can now see ripping their fingertips will soon ravish their entrails.

The entire Obama Dimocratic galaxy of unions, ally organizations, non-profits, think tanks and donor organizations are threatened. Dimocrats in the Senate are threatened. Dimocrats in the House are threatened. Dimocrats in every state legislature and Dimocrats in every executive office in every state are threatened. The black hole is growing and will swallow the Dimocratic galaxy whole.

It’s time to panic. It’s been time to panic. The destructive black hole will devour not only the Dimocratic Party. The black hole will crush first the public labor unions then the private labor unions.

Barack Obama is that black hole.

  1. One of my all-time fav pieces!

    Bravo, admin, for another outstanding post. You have been head and shoulders ahead of LSM for many years, now, and it seems more clueless journolisters have been turning to your posts for clarity.

    The most recent example, your title Junmeggedon was picked up (stolen) with variations by many reporters who wrote articles with titles such as “June is the Cruelest Month.”

    You have been consistently pointing out the BO re(s)election effort is in a PANIC, another word I now see everywhere.

    Bravo again.

  2. Possibly too late, some are waking up:

    http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2012/06/13/afl-cio-redeploying-funds-from-obama-campaign-to-advocacy-and-infrastructure

    AFL-CIO Pulling Funds From Obama Campaign

    The AFL-CIO has told Washington Whispers it will redeploy funds away from political candidates smack dab in the middle of election season, the latest sign that the largest federation of unions in the country could be becoming increasingly disillusioned with President Obama.

    The federation says the shift has been in the works for months, and had nothing to do with the president’s failure to show in Wisconsin last week, where labor unions led a failed recall election of Governor Scott Walker.

    “We wanted to start investing our funds in our own infrastructure and advocacy,” AFL-CIO spokesman Josh Goldstein told Whispers. “There will be less contributions to candidates,” including President Obama.

    While there were “a lot of different opinions” about whether Obama should have gone to Wisconsin, according to Goldstein, “this is not a slight at the president.”

    The AFL-CIO has been at odds with the president before Wisconsin on issues such as the public health insurance option and renewing the Bush tax cuts.

    The shift in funding is significant due to the federation’s role in past presidential campaigns, where the AFL-CIO built up a massive political structure in the months leading up the election, including extensive “Get Out The Vote” efforts, as well as financial contributions.

    This time around, Goldstein says, the federation wants to build a more long-lasting structure, giving “different kinds of support to different candidates.”

    And that may mean more politically independent candidates.

    In a May speech at the National Press Club, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka threatened to reduce support for the Democratic party and launch “an independent labor movement” if Democrats didn’t more fully support the union agenda.

    We will change the way we spend, the way we do things and the way we function that creates power for workers,” Trumka said, according to the Associated Press.

    AFL-CIO donated $1.2 million to Democrats in 2008, and $900,000 in 2010, according to the Christian Post. It is unclear how much will be donated in 2012.

    In April, the Huffington Post reported that Workers’ Voice, the super PAC arm of the AFL-CIO, was also changing its funding structure.

    In an “unprecedented” move for organized labor, Workers’ Voice gave control of its $4.1 million in funds over to both union and non-union members who participate in campaign activities, including phone banking or canvassing.

    On its website, Workers’ Voice promises: “Make phone calls, knock on doors… and you’ll earn the ability to direct dollars towards… your local or federal candidate of choice.”

    Come fall, that choice may or may not be Obama.

    Update, 1:55 p.m.:

    Goldstein clarifies that in the new deployment of funds, “Some candidates will get more, some less, some the same — but overall we’ll be focused more on spending resources to build our own structure [that] works for working people instead of others’ own structures.”

    Some of you may recall our cryptic clues last year about things to happen after December. This was supposed to happen right after December. But Obama started running ads to bolster his numbers in the polls (which to some extent helped) and the economic numbers looked better to the gullible (which also helped Obama).

    Early this year the economic numbers looked good to the gullible (we knew the “improved” numbers reflected despair – more people leaving the workforce for example which brought down the unemployment rate – not hope and that the economy was still in very bad shape). But the improved numbers helped quell the rebellion. Now reality is back with a vengeance.

    Dump Obama or Die!

  3. …or shall we say…”improved numbers” that were shortly thereafter “revised numbers”, as in “revised numbers that were revised downward” however never reported as opposed to glaring headlines shouting the fake “improved numbers”

    can we say “house of cards” collapsing…

  4. Barack Obama is that black hole.

    Now reality is back with a vengeance.

    Dump Obama or Die!

    Great post.

    Karma took awhile to swing around, but she is coming like Cat 5 hurricane.

  5. “Instead of trying to win them over, Obama/Eggheads want to roll over them.”
    __________

    Perfect analogy! And Obama is hunting hot and heavy for donations as scant as tributes of $5.00 to the forsaken leader of the racist movement.

    Pretty soon he will be pawning the swag off of OWS’ers spotted with an I-Pad or I-pod substituted with a redemption ticket if they do not cough up a donation fit for the King.

  6. This article needs to be disseminated to every Republican out there; especially the Republican headquarters people, and the R pacs. This is how He can be defeated…unless he is even more masterful at cheating than in 2008.

    With Trumpka and the other union bosses; as with ObaMAO…words…just words…just words that lie.

    O’Reilly said last night on his show that he had been right in predictions with one exception: he had predicted Hillary would win the primary but she didn’t…….I shouted at the tv……..SHE DID WIN THE PRIMARY!!!!!

    perfect music accompaniment as we watch the dimocrats pulled into their personal portal to hell.

  8. If America re-elects The Amateur, America will get what it deserves. We will have done our best to protect the country. It did not take much effort to see Barry’s true colors in 2008 but now there is absolutely no excuse. By the way, Admin, you have a real talent for digging up some of the worst memories, such as Donna “don’t need you white people” Brazile. Ugh, I admire your fortitude.

    Agreed. I believe there’s a saying that people get the leadership they deserve, if after everything people have seen, they still vote for the marxist OTurd, as you so astutely stated:
    “If America re-elects The Amateur, America will get what it deserves.”

    Hello Basil, very nice to see you! Yes, it didn’t quite work out as I was planning, but I basically came to the conclusion, its not worth it anymore to be in business, loved all of it, very hard work, but Barry has made it much much worse, especially for smaller businesses.

    Really enjoy reading all the links you provide. Thanks.

  13. My apologies for all the posts, I thought this was was worth passing on..
    Daniel Hannan on the impending Euro collapse:

    “English MEP Daniel Hannan as he rather poignantly questions European leaders on the results of last July’s European Stress Tests (and the Spanish banks passing with flying colors). In one of the more colorful analogies of the European cataclysm, Hannan describes Europe’s self-dealing bailouts as “a transfusion, taking blood from one arm and pumping it into the other arm” noting that unfortunately, there is also a hole in the tube. You simply don’t solve a debt problem with more debt; as he concludes “the Euro is the problem not the solution”.”


  14. admin, sorry for the double posts, I didn’t realise it posted, but is in moderation, can you erase the 2nd post at 8:01pm? Thanks

  15. Bravo, admin! You’ve been sounding the alarm all along. I was thrilled with that AFL-CIO move. The unions should have given their members more autonomy over where donations go a long time ago. More people might be willing to join a union if they feel it is representing THEM, not just functioning as the fundraising arm of the Democratic Party.

  16. The past is prologue:

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeedpolitics/in-1994-axelrod-warned-against-happy-talk-on-econ

    “One of the interesting things about this is that as you cite these statistics that say the economy is improving, you almost do political damage to yourself. If you stand up and claim great progress you’re only frustrating this alienated middle class more,” Axelrod said.

    The moderator, John Callaway, noted that Ronald Reagan had been able to talk up the economy in 1984, while George H. W. Bush had been unable to in 1992.

    “Bush tastelessly did it often from the ninth hole and from the cigar boat and other places. And the impression you got was that he was out of touch,” Axelrod said.

    You still like to beat up on Bush?” Callaway asked.

    It’s the only thing we have left,” Axelrod responded.

    Axelrod is now Obama’s chief strategist, of course, and is reliving the Democratic debates over how to talk about the economy. In 1996, a new set of Clinton aides led by Dick Morris, Mark Penn, and Doug Schoen, successfully persuaded the president to move from feeling voters’ pain to cheerleading a recovery, a successfully strategy at a moment of more cheerful economic indicators.

  17. The defense from the Obama young white boys at Chicago headquarters is that the massive Obama machine is data-mining and has all sorts of new gizmos, gadgets, and thingamagigs with which to win votes – is laughable. Did any of this Obama machine help in Wisconsin? Did data-mining help in Wisconsin? Did the alleged massive Obama “ground game” help in Wisconsin? Did any of this hideous apparatus, this massive expensive Titanic, salvage Obama Dimocrats in 2010

  18. there’s a saying that people get the leadership they deserve
    ——————-
    I used to believe that. But 2008 proves that is a false premise. The people wanted Hillary, she was the kind of leadership we deserved, but the elites and big media prevented that from occurring.

    So let me restate the principle the way I see it: Today the people get the leadership the elites select (to protect their own interests)and big media (which is controlled by the elites) tell them to elect, while pretending this is democracy.

  19. Under Obama, the entire nation is in free fall. The most dangerous period will occur between the day he loses the election and the day he leaves office. He will act up during that period, and what comes of that God only knows. The loss of the election will send him into a tizzy, and everyone around he will tell him it is the fault of others. That will be his battle cry as he strikes back at the people of this country. This is precisely what Hitler did when he finally realized that the war was lost. It will play out the same way with Obama. Just you wait Henry Higgins, just you wait.

  20. From Rolling Stone:
    Not only is voter fraud not rampant – it’s virtually nonexistent. The iron-clad word on the subject comes from the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, whose 2007 report, ‘The Truth About Voter Fraud,’ sorts through thousands of allegations going back to the 1990s in the most in-depth voter fraud study ever undertaken. The bottom line, confirmed by all subsequent research: “Usually, only a tiny portion of the claimed illegality is substantiated — and most of the remainder is either nothing more than speculation or has been conclusively debunked.” In fact, “one is more likely to be struck by lightning than to commit voter fraud.”

    We’ve used the Brennan findings to put together this quick-and-dirty guide to voter fraud claims. Click through to find out about the most commonly cited voter fraud allegations – and why they almost never pan out.

  23. Not only is voter fraud not rampant – it’s virtually nonexistent. The iron-clad word on the subject comes from the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, whose 2007 report,
    —————————–
    The Brennan Center is hard core left. Their opinions are not to be trusted. How can they say that voter fraud is non-existent, when we had 2000 complaints of voter fraud and intimidation in the 2008 primary. When Bush won in 2000, they told us that voter fraud was a huge problem. How can they say that after seeing the Breibart video with fanatical left wing groups promising to vote multiple times in North Carolina? How can they say that when Soros has invested millions in the Secretary of State Project. The only explanation is the ideology prevents them from seeing the truth. So why should anyone take them seriously.

  24. “Ironclad”? Ironclad to whom. This is more of this left wing crap where they seek to impute infallibility to organizations with checkered history. Justice Brennan himself, who was a New Jersey civil lawyer before Eisenhower appointed him to the Supreme Court, was a bleeding heart liberal, so he was far from ironclad. My second year of Annapolis, I used a similar word to describe the Israeli statesman Abba Eban, and my instructor who knew him to be a mere politican took me to task on it. But I never ever called him ironclad. It is sophomoric, and causes thinking people to roll their eyes dismissively.

  25. Did anyone count how many busses full of Michigan Union members were in the convoys sent to vote in Wisconsin last week?

    They didn’t know it was illegal to vote in another state.

    Sure, voter fraud is non-existent.

    ROAR! New Document Leak Proves Barack Obama’s Anti-American Administration

    At a time when American businesses and jobs continue to struggle amidst the Obama recession, a newly leaked document proves just how willing the president will go to favor foreign business over American business – even inside the borders of the United States. Had enough yet America?

    Here is the headline from a just released report from the Huffington Post:

    Obama Trade Document Leaked, Revealing New Corporate Powers And Broken Campaign Promises

    I have the links to both stories here:

    I agree that the day Barry has to pack his bags and get run outta town on a rail will be a huge Rodney King firesale in some of our cities. Although, those that don’t vote will be more passive and if Barry pushes the gay marriage issue much more it may be a less heated transition in the hood.

    I actually feel badly for AA voters in general, what a sad rolemodel he turned out to be. Well educated, given every break and handout in the book and turned out to be not only corrupt, but lazy and disinterested in everything except glory and sports hubbubing.

  29. Tonight’s end of day beverage, enjoy:

    http://decoded.nationaljournal.com/2012/06/in-colorado-focus-group-obama.php

    Last night, veteran Democratic pollster Peter Hart conducted a focus group featuring 12 undecided, ticket-splitting voters in Colorado, which illustrated the tough challenge President Obama faces in winning a second term. [snip]

    Listening to the feedback from the group, it was striking how many of them have grown disillusioned from their own expectations set by Obama’s soaring rhetoric from 2008, and the less-inspiring reality that transpired.

    After being shown footage of a campaign speech by Obama, the prevailing sentiment was that the president was a slick salesman, but his words didn’t match his actions.

    I got duped. I fell under his spell. What he’s done with the car industry is the only real success,” said Patrick Allen, a 27-year-old health care consultant, who voted for Obama in 2008. “I feel like I was somewhat lied to.”

    “He came in as a wild card… I haven’t seen him do anything extraordinary,” said Kelly Capra, 49, a United Airlines customer service representative who said she’d vote for him if he “could do something huge, like really lower the price of gas.”

    Most believed the economy was slowly improving, but not at a fast enough pace for them to justify supporting him again. And several expressed concern that the economy could again head into a freefall, opinions shaped by the pessimistic economic reports in recent weeks.

    Almost unanimously, the participants said they’d prefer to hang out with Obama over Romney, but no one said that would shape their vote in November. It’s a sign that even if Obama holds a significant edge on personal likability, it’s unlikely to translate into many votes if they view his job performance unfavorably. [snip]

    The bottom line: The reactions from the focus group explain why Obama is going hard-negative against Romney – it may be the campaign’s only way to win. Most of the participants sounded dissatisfied with president and were ready to make a change, but didn’t know much about the challenger, either.

  30. AFL-CIO Pulling Funds From Obama Campaign
    ———————————
    The only group in the Dimocrat coalition that does not require Obama to keep his promises to them are the blacks. They support him must because he is a mascot. Other groups are not so forgiving. They know that if you do fail to punish politicians who take your money and then fail to deliver, you will be seen as a sucker, and can look forward to more of the same in the future. After Wisconsin, the AFL-CIO knows this, and must do what they are doing now–pulling their funds. They say it has nothing to do with him, but everyone in the know, knows that it is all about Obama and what he failed to do for them when the chips were down.

  31. “I got duped. I fell under his spell. What he’s done with the car industry is the only real success,” said Patrick Allen, a 27-year-old health care consultant, who voted for Obama in 2008. “I feel like I was somewhat lied to.”

    The mischief is that twil not last

  32. The defense from the Obama young white boys at Chicago headquarters is that the massive Obama machine is data-mining and has all sorts of new gizmos, gadgets, and thingamagigs with which to win votes – is laughable
    ——————–
    They are repeating the marketing hype of the vendors who sold them those gadgets, who walked away laughing and telling each other there is a sucker born every minute. So here I am sitting in my living room in western Pennsylvania watch Romney who like the allied forces after D-Day control the air. The doorbell rings and I open the door. Behold, a pimply faced geek festooned with Obama shirt, hat, tatoos, labels, and god knows what else. He whips out a weejie board gadget, tells me I am an independent voter in a swing state and he would like to talk to me. Get off my property you little maggot says I. He curses, threatens to set fire to my house, and tells me not to show up at the voting booth because Obama has a drone airplane watching my every move from the air, and Shabaaaaaaaaaz of the New Black Panther Party will be watching me from the ground. So much for that new technology.

  33. Rolling Stone wrote:
    Not only is voter fraud not rampant – it’s virtually nonexistent. The iron-clad word on the subject comes from the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, whose 2007 report
    —————————–
    H44 poster said:
    The Brennan Center is hard core left. Their opinions are not to be trusted. How can they say that voter fraud is non-existent, when we had 2000 complaints of voter fraud and intimidation in the 2008 primary.

    =================

    TDO:
    Brennan’s report did not mention the 2008 primary because the report was published in 2007. Baaad Brennan!

    Seriously, the article is not talking about caucus fraud or shenanigans, but allegations of fradulent ballots being cast in normal elections run by the state election agencies.

    Further in, the Rolling Stone article quotes Bill Clinton:

    http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-gop-war-on-voting-20110830#ixzz1xjrmAqGm
    “One of the most pervasive political movements going on outside Washington today is the disciplined, passionate, determined effort of Republican governors and legislators to keep most of you from voting next time,” Bill Clinton told a group of student activists in July. “Why is all of this going on? This is not rocket science. They are trying to make the 2012 electorate look more like the 2010 electorate than the 2008 electorate” – a reference to the dominance of the Tea Party last year, compared to the millions of students and minorities who turned out for Obama. “There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today.”

  35. Is something wrong with the site. I see no new postings since 14 Jun 12:52 a.m. That is very unusual.

  36. “There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today.”
    ——————-
    Oh, I see, limiting the franchise to US citizens is akin to getting rid of the poll tax and Jim Crow system. Let freedom ring out. From this day forward, anyone, anywhere, anytime, can vote in US elections, as often as they want, and have no obligation to prove that they are qualified to vote, and are who they say they are, even though they are required to provide such proof in order to get a drivers license, cash a check, or exercise all other rights and privileges of citizenship. We can now rest easy because the Brennan Institute in New York City assures us, against the weight of the evidence, that voter fraud is a fiction, and does not exist. Like the Supreme Court, the Brennan Institute is not final because it is infallible, but infallible because it is final, and because they are ipso facto superior human beings, and dare I say it left wing hacks. If, as you say, the study was done in 2007, then I would have to say that their research into what is or is not voter fraud is obsolete given what occurred in 2008 et seq., and ought not to be cited as current authority. But of course Rolling Stone ignores that inconvenient fact, don’t they. It does not fit into their little meme, so it is brushed aside. They are not interested in truth, only their perverse ideological perspective, and creating a wedge issue against the American People.

    Give me a fucking break.

  38. Breaking News:

    Egypt’s military rulers claim to be in control of government after top court rules it has dissolved parliament.

  39. Yesterday, FOX News was taking perverse delight in the fact that NBC News, and its lovechild Brian Williams, have been embarrassed into finally reporting on Fast and Furious. As previously noted, their competitor CBS has assigned a world class investigative reporter named Sharyl Atkisson to that story, and has talked to witnesses, filed Freedom of Information requests and informed its viewers, whereas the NBC audience has been left in the dark, to protect NBC’s role as mouthpiece of the Administration.

    What motivated NBC to finally break their silence and mention something about this now is far from clear, and even at that they have tried to pass it off as politics as usual. But given the way that support for Obama appears to be receding in the liberal elite circles in which they travel, it is reasonable to assume that they know they train is leaving and they do not wish to be left behind.

    This calls to mind one final vignette from The Night of The Generals. The German Field Marshall in charge of the Paris Occupation forces convenes a meeting at the French Estate which is now his headquarters. The purpose of that meeting is to finalize the details of the plot against Hitler. He asks one of the generals whether a certain general of Prussian extraction will join them for lunch. His subordinate assures them that he no longer eats lunch but will be happy to join them when and if the plot is successful. Whereupon the Field Marshall tells him, at that point he may not be asked to join. That is the position which the executives of NBC have put themselves in by forsaking the role of journalist for propagandist. They are no longer worth listening to. It is too late.

    DRONE WARS: Rand Paul vs Obama

    by Ulsterman

    Senator Rand Paul now leads the charge against President Barack Obama’s desire to turn his drone obsession upon the citizens of the United States.

    In Obama’s America, citizens are simply expected to shut up and allow the continued erosion of our most basic and longstanding personal freedoms. Senator Rand Paul thinks otherwise.

    EXCERPT:

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday introduced the Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act, which would require the government to get a warrant before using aerial drones to surveil U.S. citizens.

    More broadly, Paul’s bill is aimed at preventing “unwarranted governmental intrusion” through the use of drones, according to the lawmaker.
    Read more in News
    « Remember When Barack Obama Gave $26.5 BILLION To The Auto Labor Unions?

    “Like other tools used to collect information in law enforcement, in order to use drones a warrant needs to be issued,” Paul said Tuesday. “Americans going about their everyday lives should not be treated like criminals or terrorists and have their rights infringed upon by military tactics.”

    …The bill would also give Americans the ability to sue the government for violating the act. And, it would prohibit evidence collected with warrantless drone surveillance from being used as evidence in court.

    …Law enforcement agencies and state and local governments have expressed a strong interest in unmanned aircraft, and are being courted as potential customers by the booming drone industry.

    The Hill

    ULSTERMAN FLASHBACK: (right again from WHI)

    WHI: It’s what has been brewin’ for well over a year now…it’s causing all kinds of hell between the administration…the military…infighting and concern among the staff…even Jarrett don’t have a handle on all of it. Even she is not entirely comfortable with how the president has sunk his teeth into the drones…the kill list. She’s not bothered by their use specifically…she’s more…I would guess she’s more worried over the political implications of Obama’s obsession…that eventually enough people will stand together and say ENOUGH. She can’t afford to have that happen too soon…the re-election makes them all vulnerable…the plans…the obligations to others…America can still stop them in 2012 and she understands that. So having Obama so oddly focused…not just focused…he gets excited…visually…the guy gets off on it and he ain’t even hiding that fact anymore. And some are repulsed by it. They’ve done video reviews you know…of the missions. The drones. The kills.

    UM: The president you mean? He watches videos of the drone attacks?

    WHI: Yeah – like it was…like it was porn. I can’t emphasize…I don’t think I’m painting a clear enough picture here for you of how this thing has people really freaking out inside the administration. It’s good on one hand because it’s got more of them willing to talk…but…the fact it’s gotten this bad…these drones…an American president who has the video sent up to his personal study so he can watch them over and over again…like I said – sh-t ain’t right. And more and more people are figuring that out – and that is what has Jarrett concerned. But even she…Obama won’t listen to her on this one. Those drones are the one thing he really feels he has control over…all the rest…he’s been told what to say and where to go…when to wake…when to sleep…but the drones. The drones are all his – and he ain’t given those up. For nobody.

    Taken from article posted June 4th, 2012:

    WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: Barack Obama’s High Tech Snuff Films…

  43. WTF…another Drone story

    WASHINGTON –

    People in the D.C. area are buzzing after pictures began popping up online showing what many believed to be a ‘UFO’ in transport along the Capitol Beltway.

    The spotting took place around 11:00 p.m. Wednesday when drivers first saw the craft being hauled on a flatbed truck on I-270, and then again down I-495.

    An official at Northrop Grumman confirmed to FOX 5 on Thursday that the craft was actually an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System.

    They say the unmanned drone was being transported from Edwards Air Force Base in California to the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland for testing.

    It wasn’t the first time this style of aircraft had had been mistaken for a ‘UFO’ while being transported. Last year, residents of Cowley County, Kansas made a similar mistake.

  44. Lagarde IMF Update: Check This Out…(WSI RELATED) another direct hit!

    A line from a Reuters report last night jumped off the page – confirming yet again the warnings of our Wall Street Insider regarding the true globalization intent of the IMF’s Christine Lagarde:

    First, a review of something WSI stated in their most recent update to us:

    “The Russian cartels. The Saudis. Brazilians. And of course the greatest hedgers of all, the Chinese. Decades of intertwined plans within plans have culminated in the election of the man calling himself Obama. The weed that overtakes the garden. As empty a suit as Nepos ever was, and just like Nepos, placed in power by those whose true intent lies far beyond the best interests of the United States.” -WSI

    WALL STREET INSIDER: This Is The True Story Of The Obama White House…

  45. Another snow job?

    Listening to the Fox DC video of the link I posted above on the Drone being transported from Calif to Maryland…

    “They have transported it to Maryland for testing, where they have painted an image on the ground that looks like an air-force carrier.”

    Huh, ain’t that damn strange that they couldn’t paint that image on the ground at Edwards Air Force Base and save the transport money? Does a military post made specifically for the Air Force, where it was tested and used before not have that capability?

    This is bullshit, a snow job, a lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    June 14th, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    If Obama is ordering drones moved around the country (and so close to DC) he is moving his pawns into place for what we’ve said all along.. Obama plans on using drones on US Citizens. His intentions may well go beyond monitoring. They could, as we’ve posted before, be used to KILL US citizens exercising their right to protest. And these drones will be used first to issue a warning to the resistant masses, announcing if they do not comply and leave the area.. lethal force will then be used for crowd dispersal of people designated enemies of the state!

    Thats right, Shadow, it’s all lies coming from the BO Admin!

  49. 3 days ago, A DIFFERENT drone crashed in Maryland that was being transported…remember that?
    ——-

    A U.S. Navy drone crashed on Monday but this time it wasn’t in Iran, Iraq or some other middle eastern country but rather Salisbury, Maryland.

    The RQ-4A Global Hawk drone was taking part in routine flight training from Naval Air Station Patuxent River when it experienced technical difficulties and crashed. According to officials no injuries were reported and the cause of the crash is currently being investigated.

    The military drone crash landed in a tributary of the Nanticoke River and the crash site has been blocked off to recreational boat traffic as the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies investigate the crash.

    Immediately following the loss of contact with the unmanned aerial vehicle a piloted aircraft was dispatched to Maryland’s Eastern Shore where the wreckage was discovered.

    The crash occurred at 12:11 p.m. nearly Bloodworth Island in Dorchester County.

  50. I guess, now, we know why Bill Clinton has come out against Obama in no uncertain terms. Our country is hanging by a thread if this madman remains in power any longer.

    No surprise why Axelrod just purchased a condo on the 33 floor… It’s people at ground level who will feel people’s outrage expressed in cites all over the country if this thing goes sideways.

    Arrest this maniac now and get him out of office and replaced…

  51. Mrs S –

    Playing devil’s advocate, what other reason could OhBama be moving drones to Maryland…forget the testing, that is bullshit, but what other ‘protective’ use could they have in our country when we know Barry does not want to protect our borders from illegals?

    Nothing else makes any sense.

    Anyone have any logical ideas besides the conclusion, I would like to hear them because this is freakin’ scarey.

    I think you are right on this and why others are stepping up to the plate now.

  53. Obama, in spite of the voting results coming from Spain, is afraid the results will be too unbelievable and has no choice but to play his one and only Trump card.. suspend the elections via Martial Law.

    I knew a few months ago when Obama’s camp started saying: “This election if gonna be close.” They would begin implementing Plan B… DRONES… for control over the masses. Our troops will never turn against us..and will not allow themselves to be used as Obama surrogates to threaten or kill fellow American. Our soldiers do not respect their CIC and Obama fully realizes they will be of no help to him.

  54. “I think you are right on this and why others are stepping up to the plate now.”
    ____________

    I have to give Rand Paul credit for stepping up. He is doing the right thing for Americans and our best interests.

  55. Okay, let’s think this though. Say Barry uses a drone strike on an American in our country. There is a hit, a bomb from the sky, a fire.

    It’s not something that will be a secret. Folks are camera savvy and we have the internet. So it goes public, even if the MSM try to whitewash it…then what?

    One thing about American’s, they are not cowards. They will rain Holy Hell down on his ass if he starts taking out our citizens.

    Even chicken$hit me, I would go to war to stop this in my country, middleAged, never owed a gun in my life, woman.

    Ouch: Almost 15% of Sacramento Democrats Shunned Obama During Last Tuesday’s Dem Primary…

    http://dailycaller.com/2012/06/13/nearly-15-percent-of-sacramento-democrats-shun-obama/

    More than 13,000 Sacramento County Democrats skipped over President Barack Obama’s name and either left their presidential ballots blank or wrote in a candidate at last Tuesday’s primary.

    About 85,000 Democrats and 5,000 decline-to-state voters took a ballot. Close to 8,000 voters left the ballot blank and 5,300 wrote in a candidate. Thirty percent of registered Democrats voted, and 32 percent of registered Republicans voted.

    “Our reaction is ‘woo hoo!’” Sue Blake, chairwoman for the Sacramento County Republican Party, said. When asked what the group’s feeling is about the general election, Blake said, “We’re excited about it . . . excited about the direction things are moving.”

    The roughly 13,300 voters who shunned Obama largely live in the conservative, rural regions of the county, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    But “it wasn’t just the rural areas,” Blake said. A number of the Obama-shunners live in regions just north and east of central Sacramento.

    Sacramento’s downtown district and its northern and southern borders are heavily Democratic, but the Northeast corner, also densely populated, is largely Republican.

    Obama will try to whitewash it- Remember, the game here is keeping people confused and in the state of chaos. The gov can shut down tv with specific hours open to broadcast on the emergency network The reason why we campaigned so hard months ago stopping the passage of legislation for control/censorship of the internet. He will try to stop communication between citizens. Shutting down cell phones (if possible) keeping the people at bay using the drones..

    This is all becoming so surreal like a Sci-fi tv movie but the fact is it’s becoming all TOO REAL with the latest leaks coming out to be ALL TRUE!

    These aren’t scare tactics- It’s Obama who is scared. Scared the people will turn on him before he’s had enough time to mobilize with his nefarious plans in place ready to go.

    Adelson: I may kick in $100 million for Romney

    Adelson on whether the rich are buying the election:

    Does Adelson feel guilty about one American potentially steering the fate of the presidential election? “I’m against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections,” Adelson told me in February. “But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it. Because I know that guys like Soros have been doing it for years, if not decades. And they stay below the radar by creating a network of corporations to funnel their money. I have my own philosophy and I’m not ashamed of it.”

  67. admin,

    You do have a way with words. 😀 About the final clip, at least Bush could hit a golf ball.

    Good for Adelson for pointing out Soros and wealthy Leftie-Libs have been funding BO for years. Just today it was reported that BO turns to his richest donors for advice about policy, people like Spielberg and some enviro wacko heiress. (can’t remember her name).

  68. Adelson: I may kick in $100 million for Romney

    —-
    I hope he does, and the only thing better is if he temporarily changes his name to Hillary Clinton, so the media would have to report, that

    ‘Hillary Clinton has donated $100 Million Dollars to defeat Obama in the 2012 election, by supporting Mitt Romney.’

  72. If Chris Wallace is smart, and I think he is, he will turn this into a nightmare for DC and the ‘black hole’ and the horse they rode in on.

  73. He could include that there was a drone following him the entire trip…..that he was searching for the bottom of the ‘black hole’ and was reporting a crime on the street………………is this not pathetic?????????????

    In the spring of 2011, Timothy Geithner wanted to leave his job. The Treasury secretary’s family was moving to New York for his son’s senior year in high school, and the commute to see them each weekend was sure to be arduous.

    Who could do his job? Geithner’s answer was Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Before he could depart, Geithner had to convince the White House. He needed to find someone who could glide through Senate confirmation, comprehend the growing debt crises, here and abroad, and communicate administration goals in the upcoming debt-ceiling debate to Congress, to Wall Street, and to the world.

    Hillary is like a one woman band, and the lazy boys would love to collect their pay and make Hillary do alllllllllll the work.

    No wonder she wants out, to have time to put her feet up and enjoy life.

  76. MSNBC Panel’s Verdict On Obama Campaign Speech: It Stinks

    (When you’ve lost MSNBC . . . .)

    President Barack Obama delivered a campaign speech on Thursday that was billed as an effort to refocus on the economy and to frame the debate against Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney moving forward. But a panel of liberal commentators on MSNBC reacting to the speech unanimously felt the President had wasted the opportunity to truly make an impact on the race.

    “I thought this, honestly, was one of the least successful speeches I’ve seen Barack Obama give in several years,” said Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter. “It was long winded. He had a good argument to make, and at the beginning of the speech he seemed to be making it in a fairly compelling way but then he lost the thread.”

    Alter said he thought the speech was “way too long” and Obama had “lost the audience by the end.”

    Daily Beast columnist and economist Zachary Karabell agreed with Alter, saying that the President opened the speech well, but quickly lost the plot.

    When he went, sort of, away from offense and on to defense, ‘what we’ve done and what we’re going to do,’ it became unbelievably diffuse and, in some sense purely as a political phenomenon it was very ineffective in that respect because it very well characterized the opponents as ‘this is not going to work’ but it didn’t really give you the sense of what will.
    *******************************************
    Obama’s team . . set the bar high. But in the eyes of his own supporters, Obama could not clear the hurdle they set.

    The implications are broad. The President will have to continue talking to his base and ignoring the center of this country where elections are won and lost. This is bad news all around for the Chicago team.

    UPDATE: Jonathan Alter appears to be taking heat for his insufficient support of Obama. Not long after his appearance on MSNBC, Alter tweeted this:

    Just cheerleading BO doesn’t help him. He needs a sharper, more cogent message with some memorable lines. I ain’t walking my criticism back.

  77. Oh Jeeze Louise…….the drone war is coming.

    CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuela is building unmanned drone aircraft as part of military cooperation with Iran and other allies, President Hugo Chavez said, in a move likely to heighten U.S. anxiety over his socialist government’s role in the region.

    Referring to a Spanish media report that U.S. prosecutors are investigating drone production in Venezuela, Chavez said late on Wednesday: “Of course we’re doing it, and we have the right to. We are a free and independent country.”

  78. Walls closing in on Holder?

    Senator Orrin Hatch and Congressman Steve King have demanded Eric Holder resign from his position as Attorney General of the United States.

    Senator Hatch made the announcement on former Governor Mike Huckabee’s radio show. “Well, if he doesn’t cooperate with the Congress on this Fast and Furious, where one of our agents was killed because of the stupidity of this administration, then he ought to step own,” the senator said.

    He becomes the fifth senator to call for Mr. Holder’s resignation. He joins Senators John Cornyn, Jim DeMint, Johnny Isakson, and James Inhofe.

  79. Anyone here have an explanation for Sarah Jessica Parker? Her career, I mean.

    She’s ugly as he11 and never had much talent that I could see. And that Wintour thing is scary!

    Apparently she’s on the shortlist to be UK ambassador?

    (for those who haven’t followed the story BO is attending their fundraiser in NYC)

  80. (Is the plan to get this off the table before November?)

    I bet he will offer a few innocuous papers and try to stall for some more time.

    I would be surprised if he gave all the files asked for unless they are totally redacted like the ones they already have.

  81. Shadowfax,

    He’s not offering the requested docs but others he has deemed significant. If Issa falls for this . . .

  82. Today’s BO fundraiser makes 150. According to Barone, “That’s more than the number attended by the last four presidents put together.”
