The Real Reason Obama Got Elected ("Freebie" Nation)
fox news ^ | 11/8/2012 | Gerri Willis

Posted on 11/11/2012 5:48:20 AM PST by tobyhill

Here’s an interesting plot twister; Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out, that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out. That is, that they’d vote Obama out of office and try to find someone who could solve the jobs problem in this country.

Turns out, the opposite has happened. Voters in high-unemployment states actually like the president, and the reason is obvious; the Federal Government is paying the jobless, extending unemployment benefits, food stamps, and even underwriting disability payments from Social Security.

Think we’re different from the Europeans? Think again. The proportion of Greek men in their 30’s that are working is higher than the proportion of men who work in the United States. That’s what this election was all about. People voted for free stuff, free money, and free benefits. A chicken and health care in every pot.

It’s not just the people who lost money in the recession who are hooked on government money. The total number of people getting government money are rising. In fact, most of what you suspect about entitlements may be wrong. If you think the proportion of people getting government benefits has been stable over time, think again. In 1983, less than 30% of us got help. Today, it’s 49%.

My only quarrel with the article is that the author refers to it as "government money". It is our money. Money pilfered from our wallets at the point of an IRS gun. And the author knows better.

It may seem like a quibble, but as Rush says, words mean things, and adopting the left's doublespeak does not help our side.

We got all the answers we needed, the minority communities don't want work, they want “freebies” at the expense of ALL taxpayers, including the middle-class.

Lots of “men” 25-35 are still living at home, and not in the European sense, but as lazy bums goofing around on Xbox and the internet.

And to think 120 years ago many 17-year-olds had their own farms and were married.

BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County
http://www.ihatethemedia.com/breaking-st-lucie-county-florida-had-1411-turnout-obama-won-county

Between St. Lucie and Broward Counties, we have a pretty good idea what happened in Florida. Normal voting is what, 50% turnout? It doesn’t take many counties like this to affect an entire state by multiple percentage points.

All of these numbers between 99% (Pennsylvania) and 141.1% (Florida) turnout in dozens of counties in swing states makes me think Team Obama was panicking a lot just before the election, with Mitt up by 7% in certain early voting polls.
They overcompensated so much the fraud is impossible to hide. I think they know it, which may be one reason Axelrod is stepping down. (Sound familiar Petraeus and Benghazi?)

As I told someone earlier today, this is who Obama is. This is who Chicago (the machine) is.
Do we really want this to be who America is?
Is this how we will define our elections from 2008 on? As Mitt says, “America can do better.”
We must do better. We can’t let the message be out there that America will let this fraud go.

Want to do something about all of this? Tiffany Banks and Darin Southam forwarded me a list of people you can contact who are in the November 9, 2012 3:12 PM comment below.

Did you know voters can request a recount in certain states? (Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin!) Take a look at the comment by @RightonMainSt dated November 9, 2012 11:45 PM below for instructions! Mitt will have to ask in Colorado himself. (Yes, you Mitt!)

It has also been suggested that we ask Republican Secretaries of State NOT to certify the election until all questions about voter fraud are abated.
Some people think this may provoke a crisis, but it can’t be worse than the one we are looking at for the next four years and the impact on generations to come!
America NEEDS Mitt, and Mitt won fair and square. This was not a ballot stuffing competition but an election. Let’s make sure it’s counted that way!

Thank you all. Over 7,500 people have visited this page in the first 24 hours and I hope millions will see it eventually. Please pass it on! We can do this! (Yes we can!)

Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.

We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....

I’m going to agree and disagree.

I spend a bit of time on “Reddit” which is a VERY popular site with young, predominantly white males. My son frequents it, and I wanted to see what it was about.

Some articles here on FR have said that what we really need is not the hispanic vote, it is the young adult vote. I agree. These are working, educated people who are going to see their taxes skyrocket. While a number espouse the usual european social-democracy line, there are spirited discussions about economic matters. A favorite of mine just this morning is a complete shoot-down of a ridiculous story about minimum-wage people not being able to afford a 2-bedroom apartment.

For the moment, assume that I am the most socially conservative individual that you could find. I would STILL maintain that in order to gain this youth vote, we must court the vote of those who do not agree with this position. That means an OVERT statement that both views are heard and welcomed in the Republican party, and social issues removed from the party plank.

The other side is now very capable of using social media to end-run what the candidate is saying (we all know Mitt never got up there and said repeal Roe v Wade) and blast alarmist rhetoric all over the internet.

Go over to Reddit. Sign in and post. It’s a good place to advance fiscal conservatism to a receptive audience. But don’t bother with the social issues. You’ll hit a brick wall.

It's not been just the "libs." From the article: If you think Democrats alone are responsible for entitlement spending, you’d be mistaken.

Exactly. But, sadly, seems no one with the money and power/authority is willing or has the courage to investigate this. And, if voter fraud is now the ‘norm’, we can count on this in future elections. God help America and those of us who believe in the America intended by our Founders.

Apparently Paul Ryan wanted Santa Clause to pay a visit to his constituency

Spare me the schematics, the letters were as plain as day. Hypocrisy will not win elections from those who desire none which is why Romney and Ryan got smoked by an easy to identify grifter and bigger hypocrite whose base counts on the scheme in order to live. Most good people want to vote for someone, not against anyone. Probably why millions of potentially noble voters stayed home.

Wise up this is the real reason;
Expecting voters to know what’s going on and their reliance on MSM is just part of why our great loss....Expecting GOP E’s to address media bias is another but this is where the fault lies..

Romney ran a “Johnny One Note Campaign”. Used a poison dart blow gun when he should have used a cannon loaded with grape shot because he had pleanty of stuff he could fill that cannon barrel with..

They failed to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama 2013/14 Tax Increases. The impact of Obama’s energy policies..(a socialist construct never branded as such) and a bread and butter issue which reaches every into “demographics” pocketbook...The impact of Supreme Court Appointments.. 18,000 new IRS agents and on and on. Including rampant corruption . Some were very briefly touched most weren’t and Benghazi was left to languish. Then there is Obama’s personal extravagance and behavior refusing to visit Nashville after its disaster showing up at New Orleans after Mitt visited it.

Instead we got a sales pitch on executive ability but not the reason why one should toss the old model and buy his.

In addition Rove who I understand was handling the Senate PAC campaign played games. His material
never warned voters that IF OBAMA GETS REELECTED AND SENATE RETAINED OBAMACARE AND ALL THE TAX INCREASES THAT GO WITH IT WILL NEVER GET REPEALED Let alone tie into or cover the formentioned grape shot which would have perhaps changed that body.

Finally they didn’t believe the polls which turned out were dead on. Even going as far as setting up focus groups which could have looked into what’s going on . Even to the point of going out to local eateries and bars and eavesdrop into conversations and pick up on topics being discussed.(chat rooms twitter too contrived)

Our local small population (-8000) rural blue county GOP had at the outset good and growing attendence at their meetings 50 plus. At the meeting the Thursday before the election only about a dozen people showed up and I knew we were in trouble .

Nuts...This loss is inexcuseable

That’s what I thought, instead of high unemployment, more would vote for Obama, because they believed the Republicans, rightfully so, would cut their freebies. They didn’t care about the economy improving, they wanted to keep getting the free shit.

Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out, that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out.

I've been making the point for a while that the unemployment rate is irrelevant to many 0bama voters because the unemployment rate in their families has been 100% for generations.

“The Real Reason Obama Got Elected”

Fraud, bias, brainwashing and indoctrination plus infighting and a GOP that does not fight but goes along with the left thus getting more and more left-wing.

As regards the youth vote, I believe an opportunity to reach out to this vote exists. Send to the colleges spokesmen and women of around the age of 50, college graduates in the 1980’s. Let them relate their experiences coming out of college under Reagan. A time when high paying jobs were literally thrown in your lap. Talk about the cars you bought, the houses and condos purchased,in your mid-20’s. Contrast, in today's dollars, their first job with a starting salary of 80Gs to their part time job at Starbucks.

LOL! Excellent way of putting it, and exactly true! For instance, blacks have the highest rate of unemployment of any group, under a black president, yet they voted for more of the same!

Republicans are bound to lose until they understand why they lost. The reason why they lost is not that there was unemployment under Obama but rather this unemployment was caused by Republicans exporting jobs. It’s really all Bush’s fault. He made China a permanent most favored trading partner. Look at what you buy, see where it is made now. That is where the jobs went and for that voters did not blame Obama.

Well said. Generational government dependence is what they want, not the problem.
