Canada elects 0bama
National Post ^ | Tea Canuck

Posted on 11/05/2012 8:21:37 PM PST by Tea Canuck

If Canadians were electing the next U.S. president Tuesday, these polling results would have Mitt Romney holding his head in his hands. In almost every measure of polling demographic, including having the winner live next door, Barack Obama is a clear favourite. The data comes from a Forum Research Inc. poll – conducted for the National Post – of 1,735 randomly selected residents of Canada aged 18 or older.

Yup. Canada would elect 0 in a huge landslide. Makes me sad for my country and where its heading. I suppose I can console myself in thinking it's easy to say the PC response when there is nothing on the line.

If you Canucks want this Muslim, Marxist, basturd, you can have him and his Wookie wife tomorrow after we throw his sorry Kenyan ass out of office. Just don’t get “buyer’s remorse” and send him back.

F’n Lying Kenyan basturd! FBO!

The question I always ask myself when I see other nation’s take on the U.S. elections is: I wonder if they would be so gung-ho if Obama (or Clinton, or whoever) was running for the leadership of THEIR country?

This from the country that votes for Stephen Harper. Bit of a puzzle. Many Canadians are not terribly aware of the issues.

..... America may no longer be in charge of it's own country!!!!

Well ..... that is if we don't take it back ..... with the largest turnout in the history of this country.

Otherwise .... the most powerful nation ever on the face of the earth, with it's God given rights ..... will become nothing more than a side note in the annals of history.

... SO GET OUT AND VOTE DAMMIT!!!! Your freedom depends on it. And it all depends on you and yours.

The fate of this nation lays in your hand.

It’s kind of interesting, all these foreigners claim to love Obama so much. Yet, i never see them make an ACTUAL effort to get him to come lead THEIR nations.

Funny how that works.

Stay steady my friend. Born in Sask, then HS in Vancouver, then America.

I promise to wear my Romney shirt when I head back in Christmas just to piss off the hosers in Vancouver.

The same Canada that went all out in the oilsands and rejected the long gun registry as an abject failure?

Oh yeah, my limited experience up there was in Ontario, Manitoba. Went to the world’s fair in BC, once.

Canada would be better off heeding Mark Steyn than Barack Hussein Soetoro-obama.

Too many idiots brainwashed by the pro Obama CBC (Canadian broadcasting corp). Watch CBC news and you’ll see Huffingtonpost on tv.

If it's anything like the US, that means HALF or more of the population.

I bear in mind the figure of 1735 respondents. This is not very wide sampling. I also figure in the CBC and CTV, the two television behemoths. For weeks they have been pounding home pro President Obama statements. At times virtual shills for Democrats.

I believe the New Democratic Party and the Liberal Party would be for the President. The Conservatives who verified their confidence in Stephen Harper, giving him a majority, would be in doubt surely.

We just have the Sun Media television network on channel 177, Shaw Cable. Only by keeping that station on, can I fight off doom and gloom.

I do know that the charge or smear of racism is a awful threat in Canada, albeit a kindly and tolerant country. This is one area that exists and it is vile. I ask myself, are the respondents to the pollster, nervous of being thought a "racist"?

A prominent black politician once was seven points ahead in the polls when he ran for governor of California. Years before Arnold was elected. He was already a mayor of a large city. He lost narrowly when the final count was tallied. It was thought persons did not want to appear racist to the pollster.

My prayers for the Republic.

"What happened to the National Post?"

- a Liberal paper is a Liberal paper.

"National Post – of 1,735 randomly selected residents of Canada aged 18 or older." from where? Ontario, BC , Quebec?

Obama, would not make it in Alberta. The Conservative Provincial government, which is headed by a Liberal, barely made it in the last election.

Ignore stupid polls, in the USA or elsewhere, they are intended only to suppress voter turnout.

Foreigners like loser leaders for the US because they think that they want a weak America, they resent us being the sole superpower. They never really think too far ahead about what that might entail for their countries or for the world. It's simple (very simple, IYKWIM) resentment. Look at the EU getting awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for "keeping the peace in Europe for 60 years". If they were honest and wanted to award it on that basis, NATO would have gotten it. But then again, what right-minded person wants to be in the same company as Obozo and the terrorist Arafat as a "proponent of peace" in the minds of some twerp Eurotrash?

Canadians felt the same way about the draft dodging, low life piece of pond scum slick willie. In contrast they hated Bush. Go figure.

What happened to the National Post?

I am a National Post reader. Probably you know the answer, but yours is a good question.

Conrad Black started the Post about 16 or so years ago. It was to provide an alternative to the likes of the Toronto Star. Strongly liberal, the Star caters to minorities,women, the poor etc.

Black ran into trouble himself financially (as we all know). One Israel Asper took the newspaper over. "Issy" Asper was a devout liberal. Pious statements were made about non interference with the editorial content etc. Staff left quickly including Ms Blatchford a real journalist.

A bit of a long haul by me and is only my opinion. Some very solid conservative contributions still within the paper..... but a sort of mix that seems to court weak conservatives who are torn by "social conscience". Mark Steyn was an early casualty. Paper sells for two dollars at the local corner store. $3:50 is the weekend edition I go down to the public library to read that copy.

“Another BS poll. They need to call people outside of the 416 area-code.”

Exactly what I was thinking. And some people wonder why hating Toronto is the national pastime.
