Obama: Voters agreed with me
Politico, by Reid J. Eptstein

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/10/2012 5:16:40 PM

President Barack Obama’s first post-election radio address centered on the themes he pushed in his speeches in Chicago Tuesday and in the East Room Friday. Obama couched his reelection victory as giving him the authority to focus on job creation his way, with protections for the middle class and deficit reduction paid for by the nation’s wealthiest. The way to avert the year-end fiscal cliff, he said, is the very proposal he has been making for months on the campaign trail. “The message you sent was clear: You voted for action, not politics as usual,” he said.

Taxes. That´s what they voted for, that´s what they´ll get.

I was just crunching some numbers after thinking about Obama´s supposed "mandate". In 2010 (latest data available) there were 217,342,419 eligible citizen voters in the US. In 2012 Obama received 61,710,131 votes or approx 28% of eligible voting age people.
The 61,710,131 votes that Obama received in 2012 is 7,788,385 fewer than he received in 2008, and is even 318,154 fewer votes than Bush got in 2004.
Not much of a mandate....

Waiting for the wealthy Dems who voted for him to figure out that they have shot themselves in the foot. Will feeling "patriotic" make up for the "contribution" they will have to make to Obie´s government? It´s their wealth he wants to redistribute.

In urban areas, in cemeteries, yes, they did.

Elsewhere, not so much. Obama needs to look at a map breakdown of the vote. He probably is - so he can punish those red states.

The 50 percent that doesn´t pay taxes agrees with tax the wealthy. Except, now, the wealthy won´t expand their companies, move operations overseas, and stop giving to the non profits.

Whe Bill Clinton in 1992 received 43% of the vote, he said it was a mandate. When a reporter asked him to clarify that statement, Bill said, ´even a one vote victory is a mandate.´
The only mandate President Zero has includes Reggie Love.

Mr. Big Shot desperately needs to be reminded that the voters also agreed with 240 REPUBLICAN congressmen in the House. When Obama sneers "I won" at Mr. Boehner, the only appropriate response is "So did I."

Vote "present". Let the rubes have their taxes and let the Democrats own the depression. Don´t cave on anything that would shift composition of electorate, i.e. amnesty. fire Reince. Fire McConnell. Hire Sununu, Wayne Allyn Root, Liz Cheney, or Ann Coulter ( iff she apologizes for Christie Creme) for GOP Chair. Hire Rand Paul or Rubio for Senate Majority Leader. Recruit some sane, disciplined, cunning, professional, conservative candidates for 2014.

Boehner should give him and the Democrats EXACTLY what he´s asking for, and right now!

Because it won´t do what he says it will, and he, and them, will be held accountable next election - in 2 years.

Loved how he was "expecting to find" leaders who will do what he says.

Execpt for him, every other member is worried about their jobs starting right now.

And remember too, not 1 Democrat voted for Obama´s budget the last 2 he´s proposed, which means they´re poison to Democrats.

Boehner should STOP trying to save the President and the other Democrats and give them what the President wants.

A tax increase on the rich won´t make a dentin the deficit and that isn´t the reason anyway. The left will spend the money before the first dime comes in. Blue states all over the country have raised taxes on the rich and they´re as underwater as ever.Europe has VAT taxes and high gas taxes and their still broke.

One of the left´s biggest schemes over the past 15-to 20 years has been building condo projects in cities hoping to lure high rollers back in to help the tax base.This was a big reason for the eminent domain the liberals on the SC agreed with.Never mind that private property seizures are unconstitutional unless it´s for roads or similar needs.Now, a lot of these condo projects set unfinished because the banks cut them off or the completed ones have been converted to public housing units that HUD is paying for.

The worst part of the higher taxes scam is Obama will carve out blocs of his donors from paying them.Just like carving out over half the country for paying for Obamcare,like felons.

Once and for all we have rid ourselves of this fatal delusion that if we give Zippy what he wants, in two years he will be held accountable. He will NEVER be held accountable. This is not happenstance or default. Powerful forces that shape events in this country have gone to a lot of trouble and expense to ensure that this man is never caught and will never be held accountable for anything. This weasel has escaped. Let us concentrate on getting Congress back in ´14 and routing his would be successor in ´16.

Obama´s campaign was a policy-free zone. There was nothing to agree upon. He won the election because more people decided to stick with the status quo than to change. It´s as simple as that. I don´t see much of a mandate considering his failure to run on anything of substance.

Cheater. A rational universe would disallow all Philadelphia votes in light of Republican poll watchers being ejected from polling places. Imagine that scenario with the parties reversed. Someone would also do an in depth study of the crucial counties in Ohio where there were several allegations of bused in voters, thanks to unions.

On the other hand I don´t know why Allen West and myself care about blatant voter fraud. The Republican party and the previous Republican administration did NOTHING to prevent all of this when they had the chance.

When Bush won over Kerry, I recall Sen. Schumer saying that the Republicans had to remember that there were many democrats who didn´t vote for Bush, and their opinions had to be considered. The Republicans couldn´t just do what they wanted, said the Senator.

Well, there are many of us who didn´t vote for Obama. Turnabout is fair play, Sen. Schumer.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
