What Really Happened in the Presidential Election

Barack Obama and his drones are deservedly happy over dodging the bullet of a shitty economy and getting another four years to play golf at Andrews Air Force base. But when you step back, wipe the tears from your eyes, the actual vote numbers are fascinating. Let’s just deal with the facts:

Fewer people voted this year than in the 2008 election.
In 2008, Obama garnered 69,456,897. Compare that to the 61,128,734 this year. That means more than 8 million people no longer thought that Obama was the one or was worth a vote.

How about the Republicans? Here’s another shocker. McCain received 59,934,814 in 2008 while Romney, despite the appearance of more enthusiasm, only received 58,138,521 this go round. That’s almost 1.8 million fewer Republican votes for Romney. Despite reduced enthusiasm and support for Obama, Republicans were not inspired.

Rush Limbaugh devoted a big part of his program today discussing this. Rush insisted:

We didn’t lose the election on Tuesday because we’re pro-choice or pro-life; we did not lose the election because single women hate us and don’t like us. That’s not why we lost. We might not be getting a majority of those votes, but when three million of our own people don’t show up, it doesn’t matter who on the Democrat side we’re not getting. I want to take you back to this program and me on January 6 of this year. . . .

In a subsequent conversation with a caller Rush continued:

CALLER: Well, I want us to get the Republican leadership to wake up, and we’ve gotta get conservatives.

RUSH: Ken, I hate to tell you, but that’s not the message they’re taking from this election, as you know, if you’ve been listening to the program today. They know that three million didn’t show up. If they come to believe that the three million didn’t show up because they don’t like moderates, they’re just gonna get mad at you like the Democrats get mad. At least what I’ve seen so far on TV, and read, and is coming from the so-called conservative media, the Republicans think they goofed up by failing to get the Hispanic vote and the single women vote. They think they goofed up on the demography side, which tells me that you’re gonna continue to be pretty unhappy with the direction they go.

CALLER: Well, the establishment of the Republican Party has unfortunately been in Washington too long –

RUSH: Well, I’m just gonna tell you, look, I understand what you’re doing, but you gave us Bill Clinton, and now Barack Obama. Your vote is your vote. I understand. I saw this figure, I saw this three million didn’t show up. I saw it yesterday morning. It didn’t register. I even mentioned it at the beginning of this program. It didn’t register ’til last night when I compared it. Had you guys all shown up, Romney would have beat Obama, popular vote, by 180 thousand. Those are hard numbers, real hard numbers. I don’t know what it would have meant Electoral College-wise. Anyway, I gotta go. Ken, thanks for the call. Back after this.

Looks like the number is closer to two million than three. That said, we are seeing what I think is Conservative denial. Conservatives (whatever that is) insist that if only they had a genuine Conservative they would have victory. Nonsense. There is no such thing as a “genuine Conservative.”

Why do I say that? Answer me this–which of the following is a “genuine Conservative?”

Rick Perry
Rick Santorum
Michelle Bachman
Herman Cain
Newt Gingrich

Depends on what your pet issue is. If abortion is your make or break, then Santorum and Bachman meets the test. But their position, while based in a strong moral position, is not shared by a majority of Americans. Do you really think either would have fared much better than Romney? Perhaps they might have drawn more of the base, but you cannot discount the possibility that they would have inspired more Democrats and Independents, who sat this one out, to go to the polls to vote against them by backing Obama.

Want some more anecdotal evidence of the Conservative myth? Look at what happened to Tea Party Conservatives Alan West and Joe Walsh. Both won their races as Tea Party advocates in 2010. This time, both lost. While West is still disputing the results (and only lost by less than 3000 votes), neither West nor Walsh managed to rally a surge of “Conservative” to vote for them and keep them in office. Sad, I think both men brought courage of their convictions and deserved to be re-elected. But, their conservative views did not produce enough conservative voters willing to back them and off-set the Democrats and Independents who did not agree with them.

Hardline Conservatives are like hardline Liberals. Each have a Utopian vision that they believe would usher in perfect Government if only given a shot. But each are pursuing a Chimera–a mythical thing composed of different parts.

What do Conservatives believe? Ostensibly, they believe in limited Government. However, on the issue of abortion, some who claim to be Conservatives insist the Government has every right to insert itself in the decision on whether or not a fetus should be carried to term.

Marriage? Many Conservatives want the Federal Government to insert itself on the question of who can marry whom. Social Conservatives, for example, strongly believe in the Defense of Marriage Act and want the Feds to set the standard for what States can and cannot do on the matter of whether Homosexuals can marry.

How about the Government’s power to detain someone without habeus corpus? Well, if the Government labels the person a “terrorist” then many Conservatives are quite happy to let the Government do what it wants.

There is an inherent conflict between Economic Conservatives and Social Conservatives.

The caller to Rush’s show quoted above is an example of the dark underbelly of Conservatives. This guy is mentally just like Al Qaeda’s Ayman Zawahiri. No, I do not mean that the caller wants to kill innocents in the name of his belief, but he does hold the same kind of uncompromising mentality. Zawahiri will condemn practicing Muslims as Apostates because they do not adhere to what he considers true Islam. This caller rejected Romney as not an “Authentic Conservative” because he dared to take the rational, sane position that in Government one must work with the other side in order to achieve tangible results.

I also am fascinated by the bizarre obsession with Ronald Reagan. I thing Reagan was a great President. But he was not a “true Conservative.” He found ways to compromise with Democrats in order to get his legislative priorities through. Reagan did not act like the mythical true Conservative. He did not eliminate the Department of Education, for example. And, under his leadership, the Federal Government grew in size.

Okay, I’ve teed it up. What do you think?

  • MsContrary

    I couldn’t agree more. Romney would have been a great President. Furthermore, one should never compare candidates with former Presidents because times keep changing; situations and events are and were never the same for the people compared to one another. I’m focused on today and every day leading up to Election Day in November 2014. That’s all I care about now. Republicans MUST hold the House and take back seats in the Senate. This lame duck session is a very dangerous one. Those who lost their seats are wild cards whether they’re Dems or Repubs. Democrats who won re-election are emboldened and are pushing the meme that they got a mandate, when they didn’t. THE REAL BIG PROBLEM IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE MARXIST STREAM MEDIA. They deal in lies, distortions, disinformation, misinformation and cover ups. Second real big problem are institutions of higher learning and the primary, secondary public school systems. The children are being indoctrinated. Third real big problem is Hollywood and Burbank where propaganda and subtle brainwashing plots are produced. Somehow we have to start making wins in the INFOWARS. Blogs such as this one are one place. Brave visionaries like Glenn Beck and his start up network Mercury One are another. We need more networks of every kind. Social and media. That’s how the Obama Team GOTV. Social networks. Tweets to be specific.

    Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud

    By Rachel Alexander

    11/11/2012

    There were many factors that hurt Mitt Romney and favored
    Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800′s. The left wing media predictably did everything it
    could to perpetuate that false caricature. Obama’s race was an advantage; voters of all persuasions, particularly minorities, still cannot get over the allure of the first black president. The 47% of Americans on welfare were predisposed to vote for the food stamp president over Romney, wanting the free goodies to keep on giving, despite the long-term unsustainability.

    In spite of those odds, polls indicated that Romney was going
    to win the election. The economy is close to Great Depression
    era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when
    Obama entered office. Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new
    movement, the Tea Party. Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.

    So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable
    polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on
    historical patterns? The most realistic explanation is voter
    fraud in a few swing states. According to the Columbus
    Dispatch, one out of every five registered voters in Ohio is ineligible to vote. In at least two counties in Ohio, the number of registered voters exceeded the number of eligible adults who are of voting age. In northwestern Ohio’s Wood County, there are 109 registered voters for every 100 people eligible to vote. An additional 31 of Ohio’s 88 counties have voter registration rates over 90%, which most voting experts regard as suspicious. Obama miraculously won 100% of the vote in 21 districts in Cleveland, and received over 99% of the vote where GOP inspectors were illegally removed.

    Damn, Mr. Johnson, some day, your children or grandchildre are going to ask you what you did, and you can show them the thoughtful, well reasoned posts from your site. Think of how proud they’ll be! You’ve set up a site where nuts, cranks, idiots and bigots like I Can’t Take It, et al., can spew their hatred day and night, every day of the year. That’s a legacy to be proud of, eh?

    ‘True Conservatives’ could learn from the gay marriage lobby: Stick to your principles in your grass roots messaging, but Election Day is is about coalition. Before 2004, gays wanted government to impose gay marriage against public opinion. Result: massive backlash. Some nut in NY insisted gays not vote for Hillary Clinton if she didn’t come out for gay marriage. If Hillary had come out for gay marriage in 2004, the Federal Gay Marriage Ban would have passed.

    After the backlash, gays switched to grass roots messaging to sway public opinion. They changed the political math so the weasel-in-chief could safely flip flop. Now even die-hard gay marriage opponents think gay marriage nationwide is inevitable.

    Like the gay wipeout strategy, ‘True Conservatives’ think the answer is to elect only ‘True Conservatives’ so the govt can impose ‘True Conservatism.’ No. Sell ‘true conservativism’ to the grass roots public. But on Election Day, grow the fuck up! What do they want, Barney Frank on the Supreme Court?

  • arturo_ui

    My advice to the GOP is very simple, and would be guaranteed effective: Stop hating on brown people. Stop hating on women. Electoral victories follow. See how simple that is?!

    • Hokma

      I can see why trying to demean, intimidate, and victimize a group of people like Latinos and Africans Americans would be conisdered hate.

      So do far left democrats continue to do that?

      Why are you Obama supporters so filled with hate?

  • Amjean

    Joseph Stalin said, “it doesn’t matter who votes, it matters who counts the votes”. Its not that the 2 million didn’t vote, its
    massive voter fraud.

    • Renfrew Squeevil

      There you go. Please, please, take this and run with it. Make it the first thing Republicans talk about for the next four years. Don’t do anything but rant about this: New Black Panther Party, ACORN, dead people voting, everything. Hey, maybe you can tie President Obama’s fake birth certificate into it, and then you’ll really win seats out the ass. Seriously, this is the best thing you could do if you want to win in 2014 and 2016. Oh, and talk about rape as much as you can, too. Voters aree going to want to hear all-rape-all-the-time from Republicans, so be sure to bind those all up together.

      • Amjean

        The reason repubs don’t talk about it is because they do it too, albeit on a smaller scale. The democraps are just better at it as they have proven in 2012.
        Don’t you think the voters deserve better?

  • http://twitter.com/vitadMD vitadMD

    Mr. Johnson, with great respect and admiration, what you are alluding to is a Tea Party movement conservative or supporter or activist. This movement began during Bush second term in response to issues you mention, inspired by Rick Santelli but the coalition had already begun. Who are they? – Perhaps mostly Republicans and Conservatives of all stripes, but also Independents and Democrats… who feel they are not represented by either party, who know it’s crucial to “conserve” the Constitution as the real social compact which unites and protects all Americans. These are people who believe in law and order, in the representative democracy that supposedly we have, who are awake and engaged seeing through the lies, deception, and manipulation of the media, the establishment politicians and party machines. They fear what has happened to our political process and realize it began long before this president. Being realistic and recognizing the entrenchment of the two-party system, they have tried to work within it. It’s a movement for government reform at every level, for doing something about corruption… hence, it was shunned by establishment Republicans.

    The labels are a problem because not having a powerful voice with which to communicate with the rest of the nation is a problem. It’s an imperfect grassroots movement, independent and critically thinking, perhaps libertarian leaning, NOT represented by ANY of the Republican presidential candidates, but for the most part reluctantly accepted the Republican alternative to creeping socialism, collectivism, and fascism.

    Disclosure: I’m an Independent, a physician, first-generation Lithuanian American whose parents fled Soviet Communism.

    • Hokma

      ” . . . alternative to creeping socialism, collectivism”

      I agree with your assessment but I don’t view it as “creeping.” It is here and will be firmly implanted before Obama leaves office.

      Our federal budget is dominated by social entitlements – they already control every citizen’s retirement (ERISA, Medicare, and Social Security) and with the avalanche being reported or Obama regulatory executive orders on top of what he already has done, they will control the energy industry. They took over management of federally backed student loans in order to begin the take over of all education. And of course Obamacare will result in national socialized medicine before he leaves office.

      We were founded and had run for most of our history as a federal republic where the central government was never intended to have any more power than to maintain a military, defend our borders, maintain an effective monetary system, and resolve disputes between states. That is it. All other powers were with the individual states, cities, and communities.

      Since the implementation of The New Deal more and more power has been taken from states by the federal government and with it more and more of our freedoms.

      This is not hyperbole, but a very strong case could be made that we are much closer to full socialism and eventual communism than we are to once again being a federal republic.

      It is ironic that intially the colonists rose up against the British government over the tyrannical taxation without representation. Several years ago citizens rose up again for the very same reason – the government was placing us in greater debt without asking the People and then enacted a healthcare debacle without a single GOP vote and against the wishes of a large majority of the People.

      • http://twitter.com/vitadMD vitadMD

        You make a good argument for the extent of the creep, also for why the Tea Party movement is named Tea Party. Unfortunately, too many are not knowledgeable about our history or Conservatism. Thank you for reading and responding so eloquently and intelligently to my comment. Would love for Mr. Johnson to continue this conversation as well.

  • piattq

    You are exactly correct Larry. Laura Ingraham was in for Bill OReilly last night on Fox and she was ranting with just about everyone on Romney being a failed candidate and not a true conservative able to inspire turn out. (Not so Huckabee). Forget all the Repubs/conservatives who stayed home—not their fault they were not inspired. Really! They can make that assessment given what was in front of them? Nothing was wrong with their lying eyes? The other point is to think about those 2 or 3 million people. Maybe they are the ones who depend on the MSM nightly news and really did not see much more than the MSM cover up. But the real bottom line is that Repubs did not turn out their voters; they let Dems beat them at that game one more time.

  • Jill Branson

    Actually Larry your numbers are not quite correct as there are still a lot of votes that have yet to be counted on the West Coast and most of those votes will be Democratic and for Obama. According to CNN as of last night California is just 71% reporting, Oregon 75%, and Washington 55%. Colorado is 90%, NM is 91%, IL is 93%, NY is 86%, etc.

    What is interesting is to compare Romney’s total vote count to that of McCain. Again according to CNN and as of last night Mitt Romney is currently at 58,487,232 votes. In 2008, John McCain got 59,456,814 votes. And that was for a guy (McCain) with no money who generated no excitement and had a crappy campaign. And Romney was the guy with a shit-ton of money, and lots of allies with a crap-ton more money, who was supposedly generating a boat-load of excitement and had built an ass-kicking GOTV operation.

    What is also interesting is that post-election analysis is showing that the Democrats actually got much more of the votes in the House than the Republicans, but still lost more seats and Boehner keeps the majority. The Republicans did the same as winning the electoral vote but losing the popular vote in the House. Because of all the congressional seat gerrymandering after the 2010 Census by Republican controlled States the Democrats got slaughter by the gerrymandering. However, it is clear that the House Republicans and Boehner have no popular mandate, so they should what their step.

    • HObama HObamanana

      The House of Representatives is also known as The People’s House. So they do indeed have a mandate.

      • Jill Branson

        Not really if they got less votes in the House elections than the Democrats, even though they won more seats. If they act like idiots many of them could get thrown out because the popular vote is against them and likely would be increasingly against them.

  • Bigfoot Steve

    neither West nor Walsh managed to rally a surge of “Conservative” to vote for them and keep them in office.

    Yeah, that’s a bit of a stretch. No one surges to the polls to support congressional candidates during presidential elections, conservative or not. If voters aren’t motivated to come out for the guy at the top, they aren’t going to stand in line for hours for some congressional candidates. That’s why turnout in off year elections is so low.

    Nominating a conservative is key, but it’s only part of the equation. It has to be a likeable conservative who appears competent, who doesn’t say stupid things, and one who is willing to FIGHT BACK against the BS of the left. I mean, for goodness sake, Obama said Bush and the republicans caused all our problems(which is a lie), and Romney said “Yeah, we did, but don’t worry I’ll be different.” I knew it was lost at that point.

    Romney was not a true conservative(he was barely republican if we’re being honest), but that’s neither here nor there. He was good enough for this moment in time. The other side called us racists, woman haters, rapists, and everything else under the sun, and many of us sat home and took it.

    This was an election we absolutely could not afford to lose, and anyone who sat home pouting is a complete and utter fool. If we win, it gives a chance to make things right. Not a guarantee, but a chance. Losing gives us no chance
    whatsoever. Now, thanks to you geniuses, there IS no coming back. It’s over. But hey, you showed mittens, didn’t you?

  • jrterrier

    “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair.” But Petraeus has actually been married for more than 38 years; the wedding was on July 6, 1974. In other words, if you read the resignation letter carefully, he’s telling you that this happened sometime between July 2011 and July 2012, not recently. Why didn’t he resign sooner? Or, on the flip side, why didn’t he try to hang on longer if he’d held on this long already?

    3 million did not show2 because they ar3e sick and tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. Romney over spent during the primaries and Obama hit him hard with the Richie Rich label when Romney was broke and could not answer. Being a Mormon hurt and Romney never made the folk feel warm fuzzies. Plainly he was not the best candidate…

      some truth to that….

    • Hokma

      I was telling people last night that I would not be surprised if evangelicals stayed home because he was a Mormon.

      But he lost because too many people – including Republicans – depend on the federal government and want the federal government to make decisions and provide for them. I think the Medicare issue scared far more people as well – not matter what their political affiliation.

      Let’s face it. We are far closer to full socialism than we are to being a federal republic.

    I think you’re right.
    As long as the Republicans (the stupid party) continue to shoot their mouths off about social issues (abortion, no matter horrible is settled law)and idiots like those 2 in Indiana and Missouri keep mouthing off, there will be a big problem winning a national election.
    Republicans have to be about small government;the party of the adults.
    Also, there’s more coming out about inept yuppies playing with computers in the Romney campaign and totally screwing up the ground game.

      The neocon R brand is not about limited federal government. It is all about funneling money to their interests: bloated military and unnecessary/illegal wars, oil and farm handouts, bank and insurance bailouts are the biggest winners. A global DEA police force and CIA gobble up the money – the jails are exploding. The Rs seem to want to criminalize many private issues. The R brand has lost any authority it had regarding “small” government. Now it mostly just has its high profile moralizing.

  • Sally Vaci

    Larry, I think you have a pretty good analysis here. I’m a hard core, lifelong conservative and well aware that my personal beliefs are far more conservative than prolly 98% of the country. But I am also a pragmatist, politically. I want a broad coalition of people on the center/right, who agree on a handful of big, important issues that keep our nation generally safe and prosperous. (Reagan had the three-legged stool.) My preference is always to vote for someone who shares all of my values, but seldom is that a choice. So I vote for the best candidate given all circumstances. I’ve yet to find a Democrat worthy of my vote, and given the leadership of today’s Democrat party I wouldn’t vote D under any circumstances. But on the other hand, many of the Reps I’ve voted for have let me down. Still, the principles of the Rep party represent my views the best. It’s that simple, and that imperfect.

    You’re correct about every so-called conservative using Reagan as his personal Gumby doll, bending RR into whatever they want him to be, retrospectively. That’s very annoying to me. The real RR was a bit of an enigma, and a very interesting, surprising, multi-faceted guy. No purist by any means.

    It may help that I’m Lutheran… we are quite pragmatic about separating the two kingdoms – the earthly one and the heavenly one. Many American Christians get themselves too wound up about Christian influence in govt. It is quite enough for me to have the freedom to believe what I choose and worship where I choose. With the HHS mandate, Obama has put a big toe into infringement of that freedom (First Amendment). We shall see how far he pushes, and what shape the resistance to it takes.

      I think its a combo of Venezuelan voting machines and many staying home too.

      HOWEVER, Republicans that didn’t vote are NOT those that are Conservative or typically Republican (those were biting at the bit to throw Obama out) but rather the weak RINO Republicans in the swing states that voted Obama last time (eg writer watchamacallit Brookes) . Also, I bet many Ron Paulers (ID as republicans often) didn’t vote either….these libertarians are the real diehards and ideologues Larry is mistakenly overlooking in his analysis.

      Conservatives are not ideologues so stop lumping us in with weak Republicans and quirky Libertarians. Conservatives are for the most part the Classical Liberal of nearly a century ago. We look for the facts and the truth and look to the constitution, our founding Documents, the Ten Commandments, We never believe ANYONE is perfect so we don’t tend to believe that anyone out there is capable of fixing our problems but us the people on a community, county and State level. We’re very much involved in gov on these levels and don’t hand over reigns to easily or without vigilance. We have been defined and redefined by our enemies….those that usurped our mission to ensure freedom and opportunity to the Slaves, women and others in positions of difficulty. It worked well until…the Progressives came along with their eugenics movement and desire to control all facets of life. From the beginning the mocked and derided us but usurp our ideas for themselves…Read about the superstars of this movement and you will see how Hitler got all his wonderful Ideas to eradicate races and manipulate minds. Their underlining and often self professed purposes were to destroy blacks and white trash and idiots through abortion and sterilization, If fact Mussolini and Hitler thanked and praise these much admired and respected and now famous American progressives for their great ideas. Only difference between them and the progressives of the time is they had the courage to implement it on a greater scale.
      This is the EVIL progressivism has wreaked on a world wide level. Nazis, commis,fascists all spring from this ideological insanity that reduces a human to less than cattle or dogs or worms. It continues still to this day and Obama is one of them.among others like SOROS with great power.

      You bleeding heart liberals just don’t get what mindgames they’ve played on you…you know NOTHING and in most instances you are proud to be ignorant. You have no clue of infamy this movement has caused –over 130 million deaths in one century. you’ve been programed to not listen to your fellow American when they tried to warn you or the Very Dark Clouds behind you. You just kept on being proud to be a “Liberal” . Its too late to wake up now. You have been willing duped simply because you were lazy to open a book and figure things out for yourself. Your fatal conceit: you thought that with a degree you were smarter than everyone who had diffent ideas..and that’s exactly what they counted on you to do for them. .You acted as their army to beat down the forces for truth, human worth, and ration. Your leftist doctrine made you believe that some superstar will save us all and adhering to it was the proof you needed to show you CARE for others…..do you care for what this doctrine caused all over the world? do you care the 120 million were slaughter on its behalf? TO LATE IF YOU DO! It has now here in America to stay.

      Do you know who these progressive commis, fascists, nationalists send to slaughter first? Those on their side.

    “AP’s already picked through the gruesome national exit polling from Tuesday. I’d like to highlight one additional piece of data that is especially interesting: According to CNN’s figures, Mitt Romney actually won white Millenials (18-29 year olds) by seven points, 51-44, despite losing the broader demographic by 23 points. (McCain lost young voters by 35 points in 2008). Virtually all of Romney’s gains within this age bracket came from young whites. He got absolutely demolished by young people of color; losing young Hispanics by 51 points, and young blacks by 83 points. The specific age breakdown of Asian voters isn’t available, but Asians broke 3-to-1 for Obama overall, so an approximate extrapolation isn’t particularly difficult. The demographic implications of Tuesday’s results are becoming increasingly obvious: Republicans simply cannot win elections without dramatically improving their standing and image among non-whites. If they don’t, they’ll quite literally lose the future.”

    It’s all falling into place. It’s a Senate Committee — thus, controlled by DEMS. They didn’t want Petraeus testifying so they made him resign.
    If he was going to resign, why not use the obligatory, I want to spend more time with my family. Why have an affair & then rub his wife’s nose in the dirt. Only reason to explain publicly that he’s resigning because of an affair is to sully his reputation. And make whatever he may say later less credible.
    Hold the presses. if Obama is impeached before the Electoral College votes, does Romney take office?

      Funny you should ask… the Electors can vote for anyone they want. Even in states which have enacted laws requiring them to vote for the candidate they promised to support; no so-called faithless Elector has ever been prosecuted.

        Woohoo.

    I have never been a racist but am I the only one to feel this?: A strange feeling of repulsion upon seeing a black person just by virtue of being able to predict what his/her views are with 95% accuracy. There is no one group in the world other that the American black person that votes so monolithically for anyone….and its all racially motivated!

    I cringe whenever I think of this and the real danger it poses for this country. These leftists have really mounted a “yes sir” “Kool aid” army.

    So who are the racists?

      My Brother tells me his Cuban friends in Miami are horrified that Obama won. They can’t seem to see how he could have carried Fla. in our discussions he thinks that immigration was what carried the vote….. illegals.”
      How can they want to be American citizens if they can’t protect the constitution?
      Further, as Catholics; How can they vote for the Dems who rejected G-d three times?!

        Hispanic immigrants, mainly Central Americans, have been leaving the Catholic Church in large numbers, for more evangelical, non-denominational churches. The stat that more weekly-mass-attending Catholics voted Obama over Romney is puzzling. It doesn’t ring true to me unless the hispanics who remained Catholics voted Obama, the lure of swag trumping tradition and doctrine.

      You’re a racist. Chances are you always were.

    • Renfrew Squeevil

      You want to know why African Americans vote 95% Democratic? It’s assholes like you, pinhead. And as for your last question, the answer’s easy: You are. ¡Felicidades!

    Petraeus, CIA head, just announced his resignation citing extra-marital affair.

    While the affair probably did happen, I suspect something far more troubling. I can’t prove it, but sounds an awful lot like the affair was being held over his head for him to toe the line with the Benghazi incident. He just threw it right back in their faces.

    He has now freed himself up to testify in front of congress w/o the worry of someone holding some dirty laundry over his head.

    Things just got interesting again.

    What think you, Obi Wan Larry?

    • I_cant_take_this

      Don’t get too excited or don’t hold your breath…nothing will come of this EVER. The pigs control EVERYTHING. They have managed to make Americans believe the House is a joke……Americans will probably cheer when Obama gets rid of the branch altogether for hindering the “will of the people” or “progress”. Impeachment will be meaningless or impossible.

      • jrterrier

        It’s the Senate Committee that was having the hearing. It’s controlled by DEMS. Explains why Petraeus is not going to testify next week.

        • FloridaFI

          He won’t volunteer. He will wait to be compelled by congress. It will also probably be closed door.

  • jrterrier

    Cavuto just reported that Petraeus “won’t be testifying, not at all.” Why not? Just because he’s resigned doesn’t mean that he does not have information about what happened while he was CIA director. Hope Issa or whoever is running the hearing doesn’t put up with this?

    Where’s the President elect?

    Something is rotten in Denmark.

    • FloridaFI

      CNN just said the opposite. Stated that he can still be called before Congress for his testimony about things that happened while he was at the Agency.

      • jrterrier

        Of course he can be called. Any person can be subpoenaed to testify. But not to worry, there’s this: Update: For what it’s worth, Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC are hearing that Petraeus’s resignation really doesn’t have anything to do with Benghazi.
        Now I know for sure it has something to do with Benghazi if they sent Andrea Mitchell to say it doesn’t. Can Debbie Wasserman Schultz be far behind?

    This is what happens when you import voting machines from Venezuela…but who will ever do anything about it from here on in? NOBODY!

    • souphands

      There are zero voting machines imported from Venezuela. Quit listening to liars.

  • I_cant_take_this

    Chris Christie single handedly destroyed Romney by sucking Obama’s &^$# and helping him look magnanimous and bipartisan. Lame brained idiots went for it or they decided to stay at home rather than vote for Romney…they got confused by the pretty pictures flashing before these poor bastard’s eyes.

    The Republicans that didn’t vote are NOT those that are Conservative or typical Republican (those were biting at the bit to throw Obama out) but weak RINO Republicans that voted Obama last time in the swing states. Also, I bet many Ron Paulers (ID as republicans often) didn’t vote either….these libertarians are the diehards and ideologues.

    Conservatives are not ideologues so stop lumping us in with weak Republicans and quirky Libertarians.
