Campaign asks, What’s your reason for voting Obama? Conservatives hijack
Twitchy ^ | 11/2/12

Posted on 11/02/2012 7:56:25 PM PDT by markomalley

Just to get the ball rolling, the @BarackObama Twitter account today gave a few anecdotes from Obama voters telling why they’re voting to give the president a second term.

Peter D. from California on why he's voting to re-elect the President: “Obama has been a man of his word.”—
Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 02, 2012

Teresa from Virginia on why she’s voting for President Obama: “He has a real plan for rescuing the economy that passes the ‘math’ test.”—
Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 02, 2012

A real plan for rescuing the economy? That’s good news, because the pretend plan just hasn’t been doing the job for the past four years. And speaking of pretending, some “composite” Obama voters offered up their own reasons why they’re voting for another four years. Ask and you shall receive.

Jimmy Kimmel asked a bunch of guys in a barbershop who they were voting for-they all said Obummer but he never asked them why. He had a good chance to show the minds of the black voters to America but he blew it. Typical biased half-truther SOB.

Let’s set the record straight.

If Romney pulls it off Tuesday and wins I’m going to go to my car and honk my horn for five, no for ten minutes to celebrate.

If Obama is re-elected I’m going to place an empty wooden chair on my front yard and burn it!

Peter D. from California on why he's voting to re-elect the President: “Obama has been a man of his word.”— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 02, 2012

Peter, really? Do you remember "no lobbyists" ??? This from the guy with 40+ lobbyists serving in his administration. Do you remember "I'll close Gitmo" - still open. Do you remember "I'll cut the deficit in half" - no, actually he doubled it. Do you remember transparency? Actually he's run numerous back-room deals on obamacare to get it passed, helped his union supporters in the GM bailout... Is sneaking comments to the Russians about having more flexibility... Do you remember "I'll reach across the aisle..." from the guy that told GOP representatives to buck up "I won"... Do you remember "give me this stimulus and unemployment won't get above 8%." Over a trillion dollars later we have nothing to show for it. Unemployment remained over 8% for 43 straight months. It only fell below in the last several weeks due to funny accounting and dropping something like 2 million people from the seeking employment rolls. Real unemployment is in the neighborhood of 10.2%. Do you remember "If I can't turn the economy around, I'll be a one term President?" Well, we've had 3 straight years of shrinking GDP growth and increasing deficits. By any and every practical objective measure it is worse than when hussein took office. So why is he seeking re-election? Peter, you either have been living under a rock these past four years, or you are willfully ignorant.

Teresa from Virginia on why she’s voting for President Obama: “He has a real plan for rescuing the economy that passes the ‘math’ test.”— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 02, 2012

The math that says "the private sector is doing fine?" The math that lies about increasing energy production - without telling you that it has been on private lands, that on government lands he's cut it and gutted it by over 50%? An economic plan that includes trillion dollar (plus) deficits each year? That is increasing our national debt to (one of his favorite words) "unsustainable" levels? That math? Or how about that math that produced a budget that when it was put to the Senate got zero votes - that's right, not one single vote, not even from his Democrat cronies. No-one, not even the most corrupt congress-critter would support the screwball numbers he and his staff put up in their budget proposal. Teresa, you have a beautiful name, but an obviously confused and un-informed mind. Get the facts dear.

Don't burn it immediately. If Obama wins, you may need to burn it for cooking or heat.

Why would ANYONE vote for Benghazi-Coward Obama?

Certainly not the parents of near military-aged sons and daughters.

Certainly not anyone related to anyone in the US Military.

Certainly not anyone in the US Military.
