Obama’s Illegitimate Term

Listening to the news reports this morning of the weekly unemployment claims my mind flashed back to news that was not widely reported. Currently the federal unemployment stands at 7.0%. It’s the lowest it’s been in five years. release of December unemployment numbers tomorrow, January 10, are not expected to see that number change.

But how excited should we be about an unemployment rate of 7-percent; especially when considering that the federal report doesn’t include the high number of people who have dropped out of sight by no longer looking for work, the number of people under-employed, etc? Unemployment continues to be a drag on the economy, an economy that has been in the stewardship of Barack Obama for a full five years. Say what you will about what George W. Bush left Obama, there is simply no disputing this economy is his, and the Democrats as a whole.

But the economy seems to be improving, if only slightly. For that I am grateful.

But the little reported news story: The New York Post reported November 18th this headline, Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report”The news came just prior to the start of the frenetic holiday season and was quickly gone from discussion. It also came as no news to people like myself who saw the sharp drop from 8.1% to 7.8% in September 2012 as false and manufactured. The number of jobs created during that month was only about 150,000 (memory, haven’t verified) which is not nearly enough jobs created to create a 0.3% drop in the unemployment rate. Most economists say 200k-250k jobs need to be created just for the unemployment rate to remain stable.

So now we know how President Obama won re-election in spite of one of the least distinguished Presidency’s in American history, he used the power of government repeatedly to steal the election.

Since his convincing victory over Republican Challenger Mitt Romney lets examine what we’ve learned:

1. Obama’s government falsely reported unemployment numbers just prior to the election to create the illusion that economic improvement was better than anyone believed it to be.

2. The IRS under the guidance of a Democratic partisan held up non-profit status for “Tea Party” or “Conservative” organizations beginning in 2010 and continuing past the November 2012 Presidential election. In hold up the non-profit 501c-4 status of these many organizations the Obama Administration severely hampered Republican leaning organizations from raising millions of dollars necessary to compete against an incumbent president and entrenched Democratic Senate.

3. The Obama Administration, including the President himself, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice lied about the nature of the 9-11 Benghazi, Libya terrorist attacks. The each repeatedly blamed a anti-Muslim YouTube video for sparking a murderous crowd to attack the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi (user mortars) killing four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Stevens was the first American Ambassador to any country to be killed on duty since 1979. Blaming the video allowed Obama and Vice PResident Joe Biden to continually falsely claim that Al Qaeda was on the run, and Obama could take credit for having vanquished the international terrorist organization.

These three facts along with other actions by the Administration, for which our primarily liberal media has yet to discover, are responsible for misleading the American electorate into believing things were not as bad as they seemed. And they’re responsible for partially muzzling the very voice who would stand up to the Obama Machine and point these facts out. And to think, Nixon resigned in the face of impeachment for lying about his knowledge of a coverup of a break-in at Democratic Party headquarters in the Watergate Hotel. A break-in he likely knew nothing about, in advance.

Non-Essentials – Bill Whittle says what I Already Said

In the embedded video in this blog Bill Whittle says what I wish I’d said.

Come to think of it…I DID. I said much the same thing in our blog, If You Voted For Obama Be Embarrassed! And not Because of the Shutdown in which I point out that the barricades placed in front of our D.C. National Monuments were an expense in the shutdown and not a required cost saving measure. It was Obama trying to hurt his fellow Americans.

Watch the video as Mr. Whittle says it better than I.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a President who actually cared for Americans and worked to make their lives easier rather than pushing a leftist ideology that ultimately is all about control and not about care?

Conservatives look in the Mirror

English: Seal of the President of the United S...

 

Americans have re-elected a President presiding over 7.9% unemployment and GDP growth below 2%. These are by far the worst economic numbers overcome by a President winning re-election since Franklin Roosevelt in 1936.

It’s not too difficult to figure how this happened.

 

There are currently 47-million Americans on food stamps. Just how many of them voted for Mitt Romney? Seriously…can you really expect a dog to bite the hand that feeds it? President Obama received a total of 58-million votes. And if 95% of food stamp recipients voted for him then all he would have needed was 12-million non-food stamp recipients to vote his way to overcome Romney’s total. Obama has created this dependency. It’s not likely they’ll vote against the person who keeps giving them their candy.

 

In spite of the Federal Government-gives-candy-advantage Obama held; Romney still could have won this election had Conservatives not self-destructed. The most obvious failing comes from the selfish, masturbatory Libertarian voters who sent nearly 1.2-million votes to Gary Johnson.

Add in the 0.1-1.4% (depending on the state) of “voters” who wasted their vote on the Constitution Party candidate and you have just enough Conservative voters to match Obama in the popular vote. There’s no doubt in my mind that had this 1-2% of voters not bashed Romney as equally and vociferously as they did Obama over the course of the past year we’d be celebrating a Romney victory this morning. Florida is still too close to call and Virginia, Ohio and Colorado went to Obama by less than 2%. That’s the whole ball game.

 

What troubles me now and did so throughout the campaign is the foolish, bigoted, and hateful comments about Obama and his supporters that continuously poured from Conservative corners. The “birther” issue was and remains idiotic. And it was clearly racist. What I never understood was the point of it. Obama could have been born on Mars. Because his Mom was an American citizen so was he. The end result was the extreme side of Conservative politics continually gave Liberals all the ammunition they needed to once again paint those with our point of view as angry, mean, and bigoted.

 

Since the 1930s more Americans have identified themselves as Democrats than Republicans. And over the past 20 years more and more Americans are identifying themselves as independent. Overall, it’s roughly 1/3 Democrats, Republicans and independents. Polls show Romney won independents. But he didn’t win Democrats, not enough of them anyway. If scary, angry, bigoted Conservatives (what few of them there are) scare-off even a small percentage of independents and all Democrats,  Republicans don’t have a chance…not in 2012, and certainly not going forward as our country increasingly becomes less white and more brown.

 

Karl Rove correctly points out that there is no reason Republicans shouldn’t enjoy more support from this countries Hispanics. Generally speaking they are more religious and focused on family values than the overall populous. With such values they should vote for the GOP. But they don’t. Yesterday and in 2008 they vote close to 70% for Democrats. Why is that? Only one reason: too many Republicans allow  hateful xenophobic attitudes to exist within our own political discourse without justly shouting them down. And I for one am sick of it.

 

It makes me mad as hell to have Liberals who don’t know me constantly assume I’m a bigot. It happens all the time. And it diminishes me in the eyes of my kids, my black kids. It’s important that my values are passed on to my kids so that they may pass them on to their kids, etc etc. But like all young people my kids are influenced not only by me but by what they see and hear in society. And if I’m less trusted and less understood simply because I’m associated with people who espouse bigotry I’m naturally going to be hurt in my efforts to stand as a good example to my children. I worry about this constantly.

 

Republicans have to bring people to the party and not repel them. With a country that is increasingly made up of people of color we’re going to have to see to it that we not only attract them but repel and reject the angry bigots. They don’t make-up a large percentage of Conservatives or Republicans. But they don’t need to in order to chase away any chance the party has of winning in the future.

 

God Bless America.

The Miraculous Rise of Barack Obama- Bill Whittle

Barack Obama

While this video, sarcastically points to the miraculous rise of President Barack Obama from childhood to the Presidency of the United States, what I’ll find miraculous is if the critics of this post can stick to the facts and address the points of this video identifying where, specifically, the stated facts are incorrect. Far too often criticism of the President is labelled as racist, or somehow unfair. One of my favorites is the “everybody does it” argument, excusing Obama’s associations, political ruthlessness, and rhetorical statements that prove questionable.

So, there ya have it Democrats. The gauntlet has been laid down. If Whittle’s assertions in this video are incorrect. I invite you to say so.
