Obama campaign confident they will win

Yesterday, the Obama campaign officially ended with what the President noted was his last campaign speech .. ever. The incumbent’s campaign is out in-force telling anyone that will listen that they are confident that they have the votes to win the election.

This morning, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said that Romney’s last-minute stops in Pennsylvania today were signs that the Romney-Ryan ticket is “grasping” if they think Pennsylvania is a tight race. That’s a sentiment continued from a twitter battle between the two campaigns last night.

Obama offered Romney his congratulations for having run a “spirited campaign” and acknowledging that Romney supporters are just as enthusiastic as the President’s followers, but that he felt “optimistic” about the days outcome.

David Axelrod has been saying that the election was going to be a solid blowout with Obama being re-elected handily. He’s gone so far as to bet the mustache that he’s sported for more than 40 years. On Monday, Axelrod noted that out of their set of plans to get to 270 electoral votes,  “all those pathways are intact” and that he was confident that Obama would win both the popular vote and the electoral college.

Even Democratic Party Communications director Brad Woodhouse got into the follicle folly by betting his coiffure on the outcome of today’s vote:

The campaign and party seem focused on early voting results and what may well be a flawed turnout prediction model. If the Democrats D+7 model holds, the President will certainly be giving a victory speech at the McCormick Place convention late tonight or early Wednesday morning. If the Republican-leaning independent vote tilts the model to Gallup’s observation, those at the McCormick center will instead be treated with a concession event.

This Is Not Let’s Make A Deal and David Axelrod is Not Monty Hall

The White House re-election campaign wants to make a deal.  In exchange for GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney releasing five years of tax returns, they will stop criticizing him for not releasing more.  While hiding behind the skirt of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the White House campaign alleges there may be as many as ten years when Romney evaded paying income taxes.

Romney says that over the past decade he has paid at least 13 percent in federal income taxes.  According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, a non-partisan group, middle income families average paying 12.8 percent in federal income tax.

http://news.yahoo.com/obama-campaign-offers-romney-5-tax-disclosure-114057169.html

Critics complain that Romney pays too few taxes.  At his income level, Romney pays plenty of taxes.  Romney made every penny he has.  Hence every dime he uses to make investments has already been taxed at wage income rates.  Romney pays a lower tax rate than wage earners because a majority of his income comes from investments, which are taxed at a lower rate than wages.  Investment income is taxed at a lower rate because, unlike wages, investments are at risk.

If Romney was guilty of income tax evasion, the IRS would already be after him and his campaign for the White House would long be over.  The IRS falls within the Department of Treasury.  At the behest of the White House, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and the IRS would be all over Romney like a ravenous pack of hyenas.

Romney has released his 2010 tax records and vowed to release his 2011 returns.  That matches the number of returns released in 2008 by Senator John McCain when he was the GOP candidate.  The number of tax returns released by McCain was never an issue.

This is not Let’s Make A Deal, and David Axelrod is not Monty Hall.  For Mitt Romney only a booby prize or worse waits behind curtain number three.

This bait and switch by the White House and their “progressive” co-conspirators is more than simply a distraction from the issues.

Throughout a shadowy, veiled, mystery shrouded political career where his own past has been intentionally concealed, obtaining confidential information about political opponents and distorting that information to smear them has been the signature move of this candidate.

Remember, the current Oval Office occupier is the same clandestine, shadowy figure caught in an open-mic moment with then Russian president Dmitry Medvedev saying that after his re-election he would have “more flexibility”.

Flexibility for…?

Three members of a Russian punk band were found guilty and sentenced to two years in jail for protesting against Russian president Vladamir Putin.   The band members were arrested on March 3rd and charged with “hooliganism”.  Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, Maria Alyokhina, 24, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30 have been in jail ever since.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/russian-punk-band-verdict-found-guilty-hooliganism-115937812.html

What kind of flexibility is this secretive, anti-business, hostile to constitutionally protected individual Liberty White House promising to a Russian president who imprisons people for free speech?

Is this flexibility related to the Department of Homeland Security, the Social Security Administration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Internal Revenue Service each purchasing multi-thousands of rounds of hollow point bullets?

Could this flexibility include plans to tighten the iron grip of power by imposing Martial Law and suspending elections to ensure he can finish the “fundamental transformation” of America through the imposition of a form of government completely foreign to every principle espoused by its Founding Fathers?

By agreeing to release any additional tax returns, Mitt Romney would be making a crucial mistake.  Let the White House re-election campaign go into grand mal seizure.  Let them scream like banshees and howl at the moon.  Let them cry like babies.  Let them wet themselves.  Let them posture, threaten, intimidate and bully.  You can bet your underwater sub-prime mortgage they will do anything, be it lie, cheat and steal to win this election.

To borrow a phrase from another popular television game show: No deal.

Harry Reid Is Not the Only Liar

From the floor of the United States Senate chamber, without a single shred of evidence, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid recently charged that for ten years Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney paid no taxes.

Is not the legal system in the United States based on the presumption of innocence?  Did Harry Reid grant himself the authority to alter that, or did he obtain permission from the White House by fiat?

Since when is it the business of the Senate Majority leader to take to the Senate chamber microphone and accuse a political opponent of a serious crime while presuming him guilty and demanding he prove his innocence?  Is not Senate business the job for which Reid was elected?  How does making this unsubstantiated charge fit in with conducting the business of the United States Senate?

It would be bad enough if this Harry Reid distraction from the failures that define the post-fad institutionalized “progressive” left’s Oval Office tragedy was an isolated incident.  For a “man” in what has historically been a prestigious position to make such outrageous charges without a single shred of evidence exceeds extremely egregious.  But sadly, an overview of the political landscape shows that it is not just Harry Reid who is engaged in spouting lies, uttering distortions and intentionally creating or parroting misinformation.

The White House re-election campaign has sued Ohio over a state provision that gives three extra days for early voting to members of the military.  The administration and the “progressive” Party Pravda pushed back hard, claiming that the lawsuit did not intend to target military voters.  That claim is pure, unfiltered bollocks.  Over the decades, “progressive” Democrats have sought to suppress military votes.  In 2000, when “progressive” Democrats were passionately seeking to steal the Florida Electoral College votes from George W. Bush, they actually succeeded in disqualifying military ballots.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/05/flashback-dems-disqualified-military-ballots-in-2000

Then there is the 2012 case of “progressive” Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts.  Despite having blue eyes and blonde hair, she claims that she is “Native American”.  The “evidence” she presents to support her claim?  Her mommy told her so.

Never mind that her claim was rejected by the Cherokee Nation, and that an investigation of her family tree offers no support for her assertion.  In the meantime, while Warren claimed she didn’t know whether or not Harvard had ever promoted her Native American background, the Boston Globe reported: “For at least six straight years during Warren’s tenure, Harvard University reported in federally mandated diversity statistics that it had a Native American woman in its senior ranks at the law school. According to both Harvard officials and federal guidelines, those statistics are almost always based on the way employees describe themselves.”

Such a deal!  Lie about your heritage so your application to work as a member of the Harvard Law school faculty is given preferential treatment.  When your lie is discovered, say it must be true because mommy said so.

On the latest airing of FOX News Sunday, host Chris Wallace caught White House re-election campaign chairman David Axelrod in a lie about “Recovery Summer”.  Axelrod repeatedly stated that in 2010 he never spoke about the administration’s imaginary “Recovery Summer”.  Evidence shows he did exactly that during an interview with David Gregory on the NBC program Meet the Press.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Dr-mexf2W9E

As it turns out, “Recovery Summer” was, in and of itself, another oft trumpeted “progressive” fabrication.

Then there is Fast & Furious.  The White House and their “progressive” co-conspirators dreamed up the “perfect” way to convince Americans that more rapacious “progressive” big government infringements on their constitutionally protected gun rights were needed.

What was that “perfect” plan?  To intentionally allow hundreds of deadly automatic and semi-automatic weapons to walk across the southern border and into the hands of known criminals in Mexican drug cartels.  The cover story would be that the government intended to track the guns and catch cartel higher ups red handed.

Never mind that zero effort was made to track the guns.  None of the guns that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and the Department of Justice let walk were capable of being tracked by GPS.  Once the guns crossed the border, there was no way of telling where they ended up.

Instead of providing any evidence to support their tracking claim, the DOJ and the White House asserted they were merely continuing a program established by the Bush administration.  The difference between the two policies discredits that assertion.  The far fewer number of guns that were allowed by the Bush administration to leave the country had been equipped with GPS tracking devices.

After the House of Representatives Investigative Committee caught U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in a lie and demanded additional information from the DOJ about the Fast and Furious scandal, the White House exerted Executive Privilege, which cannot be used unless the White House itself was involved in the activities under question.

Former White House “green jobs czar and self-avowed Communist Van Jones, and complicit “progressive” Party Pravda dogs assert that the GOP and the Tea Party “Want to hurt Americans economically so they can gain politically.”

This statement flies in the face of the fact that in order to gain politically, decades of “progressive” Democratic policies quite nearly destroyed the global economy through “progressive” big government social engineering in the U.S. housing market, have skewed American tax codes in favor of dividing Americans into separate economic classes and punishing the successful while rewarding the unsuccessful, have set about to destroy the concept of a traditional two parent family, dismantle the military, make more people dependent on “progressive” big government “entitlement” programs and allowing an unrestricted flood of illegal alien invaders into the country in hopes of buying the votes of their children with “progressive” big government handouts.

Still want to cling to the claim that “progressives” are the adults in the room?

At least RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is willing to call Reid a ‘dirty liar’.  ABC’s George Will compared Reid’s actions to McCarthyism by saying: “Look, in 1950, Joe McCarthy went to West Virginia, didn’t know what to tell to the Women’s Republican Club of Wheeling, West Virginia, so he said I have in my hand a list of 205, we think that are — 205 communists in the State Department.  (He) didn’t have a list.  Harry Reid doesn’t have any evidence either.  This is McCarthyism from the desert.”

Now is time for all American Patriots to expose the coordinated lies that are being and for decades have been spewed by “progressive” Democrats and their seditious allies within the institutionalized “progressive” left.

Maybe, just maybe, there are enough intelligent undecided swing voters with sound moral character remaining to ensure that “progressive” hopes for re-election end up where they belong, in the ashes.

Obama Administration Turns to Pitch Forks and Torches

They are “out of bullets” when it comes to fixing the economy reads the headline. That’s Ok, if your a member of the Obama administration – you just pull out a pitch fork.

When asked about Obama’s plan on the economy, David Axelrod made excuses on ABC News This Week, that their economic policies have struggled “because of the Arab spring, because of the Japanese earthquake, and because of Europe.”

Education Secretary Arne Duncan went after GOP candidate Rick Perry’s record on education in an interview earlier this week. Although Duncan’s slew of facts have been proven lies, it’s more important to understand why they have to attack a Candidate. Perry is showing strongly in the polls and his record on jobs would be impossible for the Obama administration to compare against.

Karl Rove was attacked in another “blame Bush” moment after he had called out Obama’s failed economic policies. A scare tactic to get voters to vote against Republicans in some misplaced fear of another four years of George W. Bush.

Most of the leading questions were about what the Obama administration is going to do to make things better. There weren’t any answers coming from any of them, only attack, attack, attack. Why?

The Obama Presidency is in trouble from two perspectives – externally and even worse, from within.

Outside-looking-in, the president’s approval ratings are at all-time lows. On the economy, the numbers are atrocious – only 26% of registered voters have a positive opinion of Obama’s handling of the economy. A generic republican is ahead of Obama in the polls and as we see the GOP field narrow, whoever is at the top will likely have a large lead over the President.

The Congressional Black Caucus is losing patience with the President as he fails to make any improvements in a catastrophic black unemployment situation.

Inside the White House, its leader may be losing his confidence. None of his policies are working. Health care costs are still going up, Medicare premiums are still rising, the stimulus failed to keep unemployment under 8% – and also to return it to 6% by this time as the President promised. He could not close GitMo, ordered the resurgence into Afghanistan and started a war with Libya.

Peggy Noonan pointed out that the president may have some job satisfaction issues, “Under these circumstances he could not possibly be enjoying his job. On the stump this week in the Midwest, he should have been on fire with the joy of combat, he should have had them whooping and hollering with fresh material and funny lines. But even at his feistiest, he was wilted.”

He has tried governing using the tactics of Saul Alinskey and the talking points of the emotionally-driven left. He cannot for the life of him understand what’s going wrong. Now his administration has kicked off their new plan – use more talking points and political attacks. More of the same. On Sunday talk shows this morning, the old line “The Stimulus didn’t work because it wasn’t big enough” even resurfaced.

President Obama had a large majority in both houses of Congress in his first two years of Congress and got everything he wanted. None of it is actually working. Now that Republicans control just one house, he’s using them as an excuse.

Leaders work to unite those with differing views to accomplish a common goal. This president hasn’t been leading. He’s been attacking Conservatives and praising liberals. Admonishing the T.E.A. Parties while pandering to left-wing groups.

Being the president sometimes means saying to opponents “I hear you and I’m going to work to address your concerns” and to your allies “we have to be reasonable”. Instead, he is asking his opponents to give in while asking nothing of liberal extremists.

If he could be more .. presidential .. he could possibly rescue his presidency, but I don’t see that happening – and neither, it appears, does his administration.

While asking for toned-down rhetoric, the President’s administration is coming to the discussion with pitch forks raised and torches lit.

 

The Blame Game Continues.

As most people have probably heard by now Sen.  John Kerry said, “Well, it’s a partial wake-up call. I believe this is, without question, the Tea Party downgrade”
Sen.Kerry Calls U.S. Credit Change The “Tea Party Downgrade” |RealClearPolitics.  David Alexelrod continued with the same rhetoric, as did many members of the Democratic Party, along with members of the press without any evidence to support those statements. “The fact of the matter is that this is essentially a Tea Party downgrade,” Obama adviser David
Axelrod said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”via ObamaDismisses Standard & Poor’s Downgrade, Sees New Urgency in Debt Talks – ABCNews. Vermont’s
Democratic Governor Howard Dean said, “”I think they’ve been smoking some of that tea and not just drinking it.” What ever happened to honest reporting? Why does it suddenly seem okay for the press to report whatever they want, without having any evidence whatsoever, to back up what they are saying?

Still, name-calling and playing the blame game will not solve our fiscal problems. Both sides can blame the other until the cows come home, after all we are close to re-election time, which seems to be more important than dealing with our failing economy.  The need to find a scapegoat rather than take responsibility seems to remain the norm on the hill; unless of course they get caught red-handed.  Let’s be clear: the tea party had nothing to do with the downgrade.  The Tea Party are those American’s who share the same concerns with regard to government spending, big government, and free enterprise. People in the Tea Party believe in the country and the constitution; those rights that are disappearing at the hands of big government right before your eyes.

David Beers, who heads Standards and Poor’s, made a direct statement suggesting Washington needs to get their fiscal house in order by downgrading the United States AAA rating. The blame from the left continues and when one strategy is unsuccessful they will resort to another. But, our excessive spending over the years, by both parities, got us into this
situation. However, Mr.Obama has spent more money in his term, to date, then that of the former president. Both houses were controlled by the Democrats, and yet they failed to do anything to address this countries fiscal deficit, yet they continue to blame the Tea Party and republicans. In two and half years they had control of congress, they don’t even have a budget. The debt ceiling was raised and this president spent sixty percent of the total in less than one day. U.S.eats up most of debt limit in one day – Washington Times.

Our debt situation is the problem, that is clear, yet I can’t help but wonder why we continue to give aide to foreign countries such as China who holds the world’s second greatest economy? The United States gives for example, $275 million to China, who claims they are a developing country and yet they hold $1.2 trillion of our debt.  This is tax-payer funded aid to China and they use the money on programs that have little or no impact anywhere in the world. So instead of passing the buck, taking time off, and blaming the other side perhaps this president along with congress should get together and try to come up with a sound package, like the Mack Penny Plan, to cut spending and put our country back on track.

 

 

It’s The Electorate Stupid!

It’s the electorate stupid!

So as one might have predicted the demonRATic leftist establishment has come out and branded the right of dissent…of free speech as unacceptable.

In the wake of what everyone knew would be coming, our economic credit worthiness downgrading, the aggressively progressive left’s discontent with our Constitution and the equal rights for all it guarantees raises it’s disloyal and ugly head again. Disagree with us and you are terrorists…you are obstructionists..you are defined as anything we choose by our name-calling to brand you for disagreeing with us. In essence they say to America…you, in the person of the Tea Party, have the unmitigated gaul to hold us to a standard of operating in the public trust and to a standard of personal and fiscal responsibility. How dare you?

Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland and chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, called it “obstructionism”. He forgot to define his version of obstructionism to mean any plan to curtail spending and assure that at minimum meant we have enough savings to pay the interest on our debt NOW! If Mr. O’Malley doesn’t make the minimum payment on his credit card monthly he knows that his credit rating will soon be negatively impacted. Why? Because he’s failed to meet his minimal personal and fiscal responsibility. Duuuuh!

We have but to note the near simultaneously orchestrated outburst from the Band-Aid Hero, John ‘FRAUD’ Kerry

…”This is the Tea Party downgrade…”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Echoed by Ex-Obama honcho David Axlehead…“a Tea Party downgrade.”

Not to be left out even the rambunctious Howard Dean chimed in that…“I think they’re totally unreasonable and doctrinaire and not founded in reality. I think they’ve been smoking some of that tea, not just drinking it.” Apparently unsatisfied with this verbal lashing the whiz-kid of the intellectually challenged left compounded his indiscretion with his considered partisan conclusion that the S&P downgrade is favorable because it underlines the fact that the U.S. cannot revive its credit rating without tax increases. It’s precisely this kind of anti-intellectual damage control by the left that leaves most all Americans, regardless of party, shaking their collective heads wondering how they can be so arrogant.  The obvious reason for the reduction in our credit rating is our failure to come up with any plan of fiscal responsibility to deal with our accumulating debt. The inability to curtail SPENDING of monies we do not have to spend is obvious as the primary reason.

Ironically enough demonRATic hypocrisy can be defined by the far-left at anytime in their own words. This cogent observation by the Silver Star Band-Aid hero from the Peoples’ Republick of Massawhoshitz nails it:

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening.”(1)

Slogans like “Tea Party downgrade” Komrade Kerry?

Debt and our failing economy

Is the country being led astray once again by those on the Hill that appear to be doing business as usual? The words deficit and downgrade and debt-ceiling almost seem to be synonymous with one another when nothing could be further then the truth. Yet both sides think they are right; they have resorted to high school politics where one side blames the other, name-calling, and denial. And if that is not enough to send you into complete bewilderment, the current Bill, which was just passed, is full of idealism that will surely break the American economy, while setting in motion grave consequences for future generations. Raising the dept limit with out any structural reforms in place will be the primary force in setting the economy in a downward spiral. It is no wonder the average American is confused. So who is right?

Despite all the chaos, misrepresentation, and blame being thrown around on the Hill, and by the media, American’s seem to see the clear picture of what is going on based on current polls. For example, a July 12th Gallup poll showed 42% of Americans oppose raising the debt ceiling. The July 19th Wall Street Journal poll found that 55% of those polled felt raising the debt ceiling would be a major problem. One Gallup Poll found that Americans, by a 42% to 22% margin, want their representatives on the Hill to vote against an increase in the debt ceiling. The President of the United States, as well as some members of the Senate and House, have been reckless with spending from one generation to another, all of which have escaped accountability. Mr. Obama has spent more money during to date then that of Mr. Bush’s entire time in office. According to Karl Rove, “In 20 months, Mr. Obama will add as much debt as Mr. Bush ran up in eight years.”1 Raising the debt limit allows the president to spend more money and further the deficit. To be clear, the deficit is the amount of money we, as a country, are in debt; it is the money we owe to creditors, etc.

While the national debt continues to grow by the seconds, spending cuts continue to be nonexistent. The amount of cuts which would be required to balance the budget well exceed those suggested by congress. A downgrade would impact our AAA rating by Moody’s and S &P. Investors would view our failing economy as too much of a risk to invest in and take their business somewhere else. Whether it happens today, or five years from now, our AAA credit rating will go down if we continue to spend as though the checkbook is virtual black hole with no end in sight. In addition, to make matters worse as the United States becomes a mockery and concern for the rest of the world, institutional and foreign investors, those people or firms who invest large sums of money into securities, real property, and other types of investments, will reconsider investing in the US.

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi regularly discussed the need for job creation and yet under this administration unemployment is at it highest level. David Axelrod, a political strategist for the president claimed the pork-laden stimulus package has been a success. But Mr. Obama told Americans that if it were passed, unemployment wouldn’t rise above 8%. It is now 10%. The president also said it would create 3.7 million jobs, 90% of which would be in the private sector. By Mr. Obama’s standards, the stimulus failed miserably.2 To create jobs we need to lower corporate taxes to be more competitive with the rest of the world. If we truly want to bring business back to this country and away from places like China and India we would need to look at the Tax code in its entirety.

There were a lot of bills on the table, the Ryan Bill, Cut, Cap, and Balance just to name a few. They were killed in the Senate by Senator Harry Reid. Cut, Cap, and Balance would have addressed the spending issues while putting measures into place to effectively balance our budget. The Connie Mack Penny plan which was discussed, but not something many people heard about, it also dealt with the excessive squandering that goes on in our government. More explicitly it would cut federal spending by one percent for six years, set a cap of 18 percent of gross domestic product in 2018, and reduce the amount of spending over a 10 year period by 7.5 trillion dollars. This plan provides the framework necessary for balancing the budget while maintaining spending regulations for future members of government. This plan has not gotten the attention it needs.

The bottom line is this: We are traveling down a path which is deeply rooted with opposition to our founding fathers and the Constitution of the United States. Both sides need to stop playing politics and address the very serious issues at hand. In addition, those people on the Hill who live with the delusion that they know more then the American people therefore they need to do all the thinking for them, need to wake up! It is about time they realize they were put there by the people, for the people, and they are accountable to the people.

Why 2012 Must be a Referendum on Obama’s Policies

Obama referendumWhen CNN’s John King asked Former Obama advisor David Axelrod about the 2012 election, Axelrod answered that that the election would not be a referendum on Obama, but a choice between Obama and his opponents.

Part of his statement is correct, the part of the election being a choice. As far as a referendum – you, Mr. Axelrod, are delusional.

First, we have to understand what is meant by “referendum”.

referendum /ˌrɛfəˈrɛndəm/

▶noun (pl. referendums or referenda /-də/)a general vote by the electorate on a single political question which has been referred to them for a direct decision.[1]

How is any election not a referendum? Does Axelrod not believe that the choice of our leaders is not a political question referred to the electorate for a decision? Of course he does. What he is trying to do is change the political question from being about Obama, to being about the policies of Conservative Republicans.

Moderates and Conservatives are starting to believe that the choice is already made. President Obama needs to be replaced, now we just need to decide who his replacement should be. Axelrod knows that if the election is kept on that footing Obama is toast. In Rasmussen’s latest presidential tracking poll, 23% strongly approve of Obama’s performance while 38% strong disapprove.

Soon, the phraseology will be how Republicans caused the current economic mess. Nancy Pelosi has already tried to blame the massive mess the House of Representatives created under her leadership on John Boehner.

What Conservatives must do is realize the goal. Ultimately, we must not repeat the mistake of the 1992 and 1996 elections where H. Ross Perot was allowed to split the GOP vote and put a Republican loss in motion. In the 1992 Presidential election it is well-known that the independent candidate caused the election of the otherwise unknown governor of Arkansas: Bill Clinton. Clinton got 43%, Bush got 37.4% and Perot took 18.9%. Not only that, but many states that gave electoral votes to Clinton would have shifted to Bush had the vote not been split. Whether gauging it on popular vote or electoral college, a split right is a win for the left.

Could it happen again? Unequivocally YES! A separate poll from Rasmussen shows that a split vote will be an advantage to the left-wing of the American political spectrum.

..in a three-way congressional contest with a Tea Party candidate on the ballot, the Democrat picks up 40% of the vote. The Republican earns 21% support, while nearly as many (18%) favor the Tea Party candidate. Twenty-one percent (21%), however, remain undecided.

If Conservatives are split or confused, the election is lost. If instead, we realize that getting a president with extreme left-wing ideas out of the White House is the highest goal, we have a chance. According to this poll, if the Tea Party Conservatives and Republican voters ban together, we have to only inform slightly more than half of the undecided voters that this is a vote on Obama’s failures. If we split the vote, it doesn’t matter how convincing we are – we get another four years of government over-reach. Obamacare will be full implemented, a balanced budget will never happen, business will continue to leave in the face of centrally-managed oppression and American may well become unrecognizable as the leader of the free world.

We may see Trump come out of the shadows. Maybe some other candidate, once defeated in the primary, pulls a Murkowski and comes back as an independent. Both show selfishness and greed for power – not a heart to do the will of the people. If that happens, we must not fall into the trap the Alaskan voters did. Conservatives must rally around the winner of the primaries in order to defeat the most dangerous president in American history.

The Wheels have come off of Axle’s Rod

David Axelrod

Can you imagine the agony it must be to be named David Axelrod? Being named after a shaft is bad enough – but try to envision his complete frustration at his own friggin’ incompetence. After all, it is his job to shape our opinions, mold our perceptions, and frame our dialogue concerning his lord and master Barack Obama. Truth be told, Axelrod’s job description is nothing short of manipulating our minds – brainwashing, as it were. And at that task Axelrod has been a miserable failure.

No wonder word on the street is that Axelrod’s influence within Obama’s inner circle is on the wane. It seems he is being held accountable for his failures. We are currently being spun a story that Axelrod will be leaving the White House staff sometime around March of 2011 so that he can move back to Chicagoland and work on Obama’s re-election campaign. And this is really kind of funny when you think about it because Obama is publicly trying to keep us guessing as to whether or not he is going to run for another term. Which brings up another point – considering Axelrod’s abysmal performance this year leading up to the midterm elections, if you were Obama would you want Axelrod performing the same quality of work on your presidential campaign for the 2012 elections? Of course not! Axelrod has got to be just a tad bit paranoid every time the phone rings and caller ID reads “Captain Kickass.”

Axelrod is presiding over the Democrat’s propaganda machine leading up to the midterm elections of 2010. Nice work for a guy with a mustache and a big mouth. The only problem is that he is better at electing Republicans than he is at electing Democrats. Everything Axelrod has tried this year has failed to stick. The lie machine must be broken, or at least the credibility circuit must be on the fritz. Let’s consider the memes the Democrats have used leading up to the elections this year:

  • Tea Party candidates are insane
  • Tea Party candidates are extremists
  • Tea Party candidates are racists
  • It is all George W. Bush’s fault
  • The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is using foreign money to finance campaign ads for the Tea Party
  • The American voters are afraid and thusly can’t think straight
  • Obama makes Einstein look like a brainless dweeb
  • We will fall in love with ObamaCare just as soon as we understand it
  • The recession is over
  • Obama has created millions of new jobs
  • Prosecuting terrorists in America rather than in military tribunals is a wonderful thing
  • The future of America is at stake so don’t vote for Tea Party Candidates
  • The Supreme Court acted stupidly
  • Obama is for gays in the military although he has instructed the Justice Department to appeal a federal judge’s order to dismantle DADT
  • Obama is not a socialist

The list of Axelrod’s failures goes on and on and on and on. But nothing Axelrod has tried has stemmed the rising conservative tide that will flood over Washington D.C. on November 2, 2010. Axelrod is like that little Dutch boy with his finger in the dyke (yes that is spelled correctly). Nothing Axelrod has tried has had even the slightest dampening effect on the enthusiasm of the growing coalition of anti-Obama forces. If you have any pity at all for Axelrod please send a couple of boxes of Depends to him at the White House. He is crapping his pants now. This isn’t how it was supposed to turn out.

Axelrod’s former boss, Dick Morris, who hired Axelrod to assist him in the White House during the Clinton years, is now openly contemptuous of his former protégé. Click below to hear Morris ream Axelrod a new one over ObamaCare.

The American people have Axelrod’s number. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be David Axelrod. Axelrod and company managed to pull a fast one over the voter’s eyes during the 2008 presidential election. But, having seen Obama’s consistently bad policy moves over the past two years, the American people have had enough of the lunacy. “Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me,” is what the voters are now saying in response to Axelrod’s propaganda. They’re not falling for it again. The bloom is off Obama’s rose and now Axelrod is merely a thorn in the president’s side. His constant attempts to pull yet another fast one on America have had the reverse of the intended effect that Axelrod intended. Now, every time that Axelrod floats another piece of propaganda to see if it will stick, the voters are tossing it right back at him:

Here are some recent comments about Axelrod from bloggers across the fruited plain:

  • Axelrod marketed Barack Obama as a “transformational” leader who would “change the culture” of Washington and bring America into a blissful “post-racial” era because it was “time” for a black president, with the clear message for whites being that if you won’t vote for Obama, then it must be because you’re a racist.
  • David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel and other senior staff members are leaving the administration after the gathering electoral storm strikes the Democrats on 2 November.
  • Axelrod? Is the guy with the Hitler mustache? Yeah, he’s got credibility.
  • He’s an idiot…
  • Maybe yes, maybe no, but he sure as he11 is a commie!
  • Not only is he a snob, he’s an asshole too.
  • Somebody get Axelrod help…
  • The Axe is a filthy guy. He built his Chicago business on spinning lies about important subjects to reflect the libtard (anti-American) point of view. How would he know what the truth is about anything?
  • Errrmmmm…does anybody not set the obvious reply to Axelrod? Obama isn’t a snob??  Hey Dave, DO YOU HAVE ANY PROOF THAT HE ISN’T???
    Axelrod is right, President Obama isn’t a snob. Snobs are people who only think they are better than us. According to Axelrod, President Obama is clearly better than all of us.

The wheels have come off of Axle’s rod. The bus is tilting. It appears that Axelrod will soon be joining the wave of Obama minions who are scattering to the seven winds. Once the genie got out of the bottle there has been nothing Axelrod could do to get it back in there.

He’s history. It does not matter if he retains his job or not. It is over. His ability to fool America has passed. He can’t get the job done. He’s history.
