Life is tough on the road as an Obamabot.....
"At the end of August, Ed Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, wrote an editorial for Fox News in which he described a meeting headed by Obama’s campaign manager, David Axelrod. “According to my sources inside the campaign, Axelrod & Co. discussed what might be called the nuclear option: unleashing an attack on Romney’s Mormon faith via the mainstream media,” Klein wrote. The primary strategic goal would be turning evangelical voters, a key element of George Bush’s winning 2004 coalition, away from Romney.
Klein’s sources told him Axelrod was considering this risky strategy because the polls were closing in Wisconsin, Florida, Colorado, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Seven weeks after Klein wrote his editorial, most of those states have indeed become very tight, and there are polls showing Romney ahead in most of them.
There has been sporadic media interest in Mormonism throughout the campaign, ever since Mitt Romney became the likely Republican nominee. Quite a few stories were popping right around the time Klein wrote, and he listed some of them in his piece, from GQ Magazine and hyperventilating MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell (currently a minor sideshow attraction for challenging Romney’s son Tagg to a fistfight) launching high-octane tirades, to more respectable media outlets producing lengthy “special reports,” of the type they would never dream of directing at Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Church of Racial Hatred."Keep Reading.......
"Losing campaigns have a certain feel to them: They go negative hard, try out new messaging very late in the game, hype issues that only their core supporters are focused on, and try to turn non-gaffes and minor slip-ups by their opponents into massive, election-turning scandals. Think of John McCain’s desperate hope that elevating Joe the Plumber would change the shape of the 2008 race, and you have the template for how tin-eared and desperate a losing presidential campaign often sounds — and ever since the first debate cost Obama his air of inevitability, he and his surrogates have sounded more like McCain did with Joe the Plumber than like a typical incumbent president on his way to re-election. A winning presidential campaign would not normally be hyping non-issues like Big Bird and “binders full of women” in its quest for a closing argument, or rolling out a new spin on its second-term agenda with just two weeks left in the race, or pushing so many advertising chips into dishonest attacks on its rival’s position on abortion. A winning presidential campaign would typically be talking about the issues that voters cite as most important — jobs, the economy, the deficit — rather than trying to bring up Planned Parenthood and PBS at every opportunity. A winning presidential campaign would not typically have coined the term “Romnesia,” let alone worked it into their candidate’s speeches......"

"No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ” - CIA Director David Petraeus
"So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No."
"It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?"- The Weekly Standard[SNIP]
"Why should we believe this might be true? I have enough experience in the military and with providing security with weapons loaded to know that the people administratively charged with making decisions on security would not possibly have denied the requests absent a policy decision made at a much higher level. And indeed, I cannot see any career employee in the chain of command denying a request for more security in Benghazi, given the availability of assets and all that was known about the deteriorating situation. In other words, I would bet my last dollar that the decision to deny more security was made pursuant to a policy decision in the political chain of command – and that means Clinton and / or Obama. And if there is any truth to the story above, then that person was Obama."
"There are obviously verifiable vote fraud problems in North Carolina.
In 2010 those problems surfaced meaningfully as indicated in the below voter fraud post from an earlier Charlotte Conservative Examiner article:
"Perhaps in an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest States in the Nation, this latest voter twist comes to us from Susan Myrick of the Civitas Institute in North Carolina–not to be confused with Rep. Sue Myrick of NC who is unrelated. In a radio interview with local WBT Anchor Tara Servatious, Susan reports that she has been keeping track of the number of votes in North Carolina of individuals over the age of 110 years and apparently we have quite a few, over 410 of the 110 year olds–to be exact– actually voted via absentee ballot on October the 28th. Yes indeed, now it would appear that good ole NC has the market cornered on the Centenarian vote.
At latest count, Susan has garnered a total Absentee Ballot vote of over 2,660 people over the age of 110. "
"Someone contact the Guiness Book and warm up the Ford, the Fountain of Youth exists and its right here in lovely NC. It’s no wonder people are moving here in droves–maybe the use of tobacco isn’t such a bad thing after all? But, on a more serious note, with all of the irregularities going on all over the place, we can now begin to wonder about a few things.
Apparently those ultra-healthy seniors over 110 have aged and are now astoundingly over 112 years old, and are still able to make it to the polls ahead of time.
According to a post originally from the Silence Dogood political blog report, there were at least 758 individuals over the age of 112 who had either risen from their respective graves, or otherwise, to vote once again for the Democrats in charge, who might apparently have also guaranteed them an ever-lasting vote for life and beyond."Read More

Libya: Without the U.S. taking the dominant military lead, NATO’s feeble effort was exposed as a shocking weakness in the military alliance. And Obama still hasn’t explained why Gaddafi’s troops shooting into crowds warranted retribution, while Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could do the same with impunity. What an ill-conceived effort, with no real leadership and no clear goals. And the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya last month and the aftermath just shows the the Obama impotence.
Iran: In 2009, when Tehran protesters looked to Washington for help, Obama offered little support as he held on to the ludicrous dream that his magical words could sway Iran’s Islamist leaders. His naive stance snubbed the masses of people hoping for democratic reform while ensuring that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will continue his march on to make Iran a dangerous armed nuclear power.

He never said it was an terrorist attack.
The closest he came to that was when he said:
"Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."
Throughout the speech, he only called them ‘attackers’.
1972 In the early 1970s, the left wing (i.e.Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson, George McGovern) had gained control of the Democrat party, but America wasn't buying it back in those days. Sitting President Richard Nixon was reelected with 520 Electoral votes (60% popular vote) with George McGovern only taking 17 (Massachusetts). Origins of the phrase "Epic Fail".
1976 Richard Nixon's Vice-President, Spiro Agnew, had just resigned. Gerald Ford was appointed to fill in as V.P. Then Nixon had to walk the plank. Ford then fell headfirst into the Oval Office unelected. The Republicans went ahead and gave Ford the nomination, since it appeared to be his turn. Washington outsider Jimmy Carter carried the south and won the 1976 election with 297 votes to Ford's 240. Democrats were suspicious.
1980 After a disastrous 4 years of a bad economy, inflation, attacks from his party's far left wing and hostages in Iran, Ronald Reagan rode in and defeated Carter 489 to 49, with Jimmy Carter carrying only his home state of Georgia, plus West Virginia, Maryland, Hawaii, VP Walter Mondale's Minnesota, and D.C. Democrat's suspicions confirmed.
1984 Ronald Reagan almost ran the table by handily defeating the Democrats sacrificial lamb Walter Mondale in the largest electoral college landslide in modern American history, 525 to 13. Mondale captured nothing but his ever-loyal Minnesota, plus D.C. Wipe out!
1988 Riding on the popularity of Ronald Reagan and their 2 successful terms, his V.P. George H.W. Bush beat an impotent Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis 426 to 111. Let's face it people, I could have beat Dukakis.....
1992 Despite Bush's one time approval rating of 90%, a young and cocky Bill Clinton came from out of nowhere to beat George Bush the Elder by a total of 370 to 168. Texas business man Ross Perot ran as a third party, thus mudding the water and helped damage and take votes from Bush. Clinton was elected with only 43% of the vote. Remember this, Republicans....If you say "no new taxes", you better mean it.
1996 A disastrous first 2 years behind him, Bill Clinton zipped up his pants long enough to rally his supporters. The Republicans trotted out an ineffective Bob Dole because it was his turn. Clinton won reelection handily, 379 to 159. Once again the Perot factor prevented Clinton from getting a majority of the popular vote (49%). His pants soon returned to the floor.
2000 After the scandal ridden Clinton administration, George W. Bush barely squeaked by Clinton's V.P., Al Gore in a contested election with Gore winning the popular vote and Bush winning that what counts by a score of 271 to 267. The Everglades water level rose from the weight of all the lawyers in Florida. Democrats can safely blame this one on Bill Clinton's zipper issues.
2004 George W. Bush won reelection by beating John Kerry, 286 to 252. Kerry came off as a wealthy Pompous Ass and Gucci Marxist through most of the campaign, but democrats wanted revenge so bad for 2000 and would have voted for Paris Hilton if it had been necessary.
2008 The Democrats snake oil salesmen dig up a back bench Senator named Barack Obama. The Republicans nominated John McCain because it was his turn. Despite his lack of any experience, not being vetted by the media and a controversial past, Obama goes on to election, 365 to 173. Nuff said.....
