In his first post-election interview, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan blamed the loss by the Republican presidential ticket last week on high turnout among ´urban´ voters. ´We were surprised at the outcome,´ he told WISC-TV, his home state´s CBS affiliate. ´We knew this was gonna be a close race. We thought we had a very good chance of winning it.´ ´Losing never feels good,´ he added. Ryan said he was expecting to get more support from voters in big cities, which generally tend to vote Democratic.[Snip]Ryan´s liberal critics accused him of suggesting that inner-city minorities were responsible for Obama´s win.
Comments: So whaddaya call an area deep in the city? It´s not urban? And if I live there, does that mean I´m black? Or was?
A Hillary adviser snarkily corrected Ryan because, it seems, "urban" is no longer a code word for "black." Really? I didn´t know it was until I read this. Does that mean because I´m a suburbanite I´m no longer a sub-black or am I simply a confused old geezette?
That last was a strictly rhetorical question. Don´t touch it, I haven´t been in a good mood since the election.
I would have to think it is statistically impossible to get 19,605 votes for Obama and 0 votes for Romney. There was not one single person opposed to abortion, gay marriage, high unemployment, huge deficits, etc? These districts are not 100% black voters. And the same thing happened in sections of Cleveland and Cincinnatti. Coincidence? No, it can only mean election fraud. So brazen and in-you-face that they don´t even bother to hide it with a 95% - 5% outcome.
I would blame the loss on fraud and ballot stuffing. There is no way that many precincts could have been 100% for bam bam. This type of ´malarky´ should only take place in the former USSR, Cuba and Venezuela.
A lot of these voting machines are still being made by Diebold under a different name. But since Obama won,they´re all honest machines now.My guess is these Philly voting machines were all rigged to flip Romney votes,not that nobody voted for him.
One thing you need to know about liberals is if they´re cheating in one area of the country,it´s actually all over.
Notice how absolutely nothing happened to teachers erasing wrong test scores,instead they blamed it on NCLB.The fact that there was widespread cheating is irrelevant.
At least Ryan has the guts to speak out on this.Some of these wards also had 99% turnout rates which also suggests cheating but no investigation. Send a nasty e mail and you will be investigated then.
I wish Romney would turn his loss into a mission for ensuring honest elections. Ryan, being a statistics guy, ought to be a great partner in this. If the Dems can steal this election for the worst president ever how will we ever win again? Even the best candidate ever can´t win if the voting machines are pre-programmed for the Demos.
No need to teach Greek/Roman history in our school system, none whatsoever. Teach little Johnnie and Mary all about dealing with their feelings, diversity and gay marriage. Tear down all major institutions, including Lance Armstrong´s many wins. Don´t go by the rules that were in place, bring in your new rules and make them retroactive on all those you never liked, those winners who bet you are your own games...
Totems come down, replaced by what? Ask the people who still live in Detroit and Trenton.
Animals who like being with fellow animals. The blacktop jungle is here, front and center for all to see and get car jacked!
Play some rap music, some urban ghetto music, give me some Jay Z tunes with Beyonce shaking her booty all about as she writes a love note to her other man, the metrosexual clown Obama-Mao!
I personally know a black voter from the East Side of Cleveland one of the polls that was 100% for the worst president in US history who voted for Romney. I saw his ballot he voted by mail. Ryan sounds ready to take on this shameless voter theft. Romney probably figures f$@k it. Let Zero´s "voters" pay. Zero has already thrown gays and food stamp nation aside. He "won".
Gee whiz Congressman Ryan. Do you think the Democrats might have cheated?.......Not even Uncle Joe Stalin or Herr Schicklgruber ever pulled down the kind of numbers The Bamster had in Philadelphia and Cleveland!
PA´s R governor Corbett apparently hasn´t said a word about this. There ain´t no way in hello that this isn´t fraud, plain and simple. Based on Florida from the past we know that RATS can´t vote without many mistakes....not 1 vote eh?
An honest media would be all over this. How hard would it be to find several hundred people that voted Romney? They could even hide their identity so they wouldn´t end up dead like snitches do in those precincts.
Consider how many stupid, illiterate dregs were included in the 19,605 who cast ballots in these Philadelphia districts. Then establish odds that not even one of them mistakenly voted for Romney. My chances on the lottery this week must be substantially better.
Hear ya, #25, but it´s not going to happen. There was massive Demonrat cheating occurring all over the country in a dozen different ways from thousands of deep-sixed military votes to voting machine fraud to polling place intimidation to bogus voter registrations to flipped votes to bussed-in illegals to voting more than once to nationwide SEIU/NAACP thuggery, etc, etc!
And the doe-eyed STUPID Party ignored it all!
Only Demonrats challenge voting results, and that with admirable ferocity (Bush-Gore, FL)
Fraud or some very, very heavy intimidation, which is just as illegitimate. When I lived in Chicago I´d come across both black and white people who were convinced their ballot was not secret and they could get into trouble with city/county employees if they didn´t vote straight Democrat. Even then the Democrats weren´t stupid. They´d have at least two Republican votes per precinct to make the "Republican" election judges look legit.
The United Nations´ nuclear watchdog issued a warning on Wednesday after a truck carrying dangerous radioactive material that could be used in a dirty bomb was stolen in Mexico. The vehicle, carrying cobalt-60, a substance used for radiotherapy treatment to combat cancer, was stolen on Monday while transporting the load from a hospital in Tijuana to a radioactive waste storage centre. Mexican authorities were working to locate the material, which could not be used in a conventional nuclear weapon but could in theory be put in a dirty bomb--an explosive device which would spread the substance over a large area.
A World War Two bomber hero who met his radio telephone operator wife when she guided his plane back to safety has celebrated 70 years of marriage. Flt Lt Steve Stevens, 91, fell in love with the calming voice of Maureen Miller, who played a vital role in the legendary Dambusters raid during her career at the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). [Snip] Mr Stevens, who joined the RAF after his own family’s home was bombed, recalled: “It was the first time I had heard a girl’s voice from the tower, so I thought I would go up and have
President Obama´s uncle has testified at his deportation hearing that he housed his famous relative for a few weeks when he was student at Harvard Law School. This statement contradicts earlier claims by the White House, which says that Barack Obama has never met his controversial uncle Onyango Obama. The 69-year-old half-brother of the president´s late father will be allowed to remain in the United States after a hearing at a Massachusetts Immigration Court on Tuesday afternoon. After listening to witnesses praise the liquor store owner´s high moral character from his friends and landlord, the immigration judge ruled that he
Joe Biden should not repeat "erroneous remarks" on China´s new air zone, Chinese state media warned, as the US vice-president arrived in Beijing. Mr Biden is in Beijing for meetings with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang. His visit to Asia has been dominated by a row over China´s newly-declared air zone, which covers islands controlled by Japan. [Snip] Mr Biden attended an official welcome ceremony in Beijing´s Great Hall of the People where he met China´s Vice-President Li Yuanchao, and said China and the US should expand practical co-operation and deliver results. On Thursday he will visit
It was a sleepless night for Cile Precetaj. The Albanian mother of three, who was bracing for deportation Tuesday morning, tossed and turned in bed all night. She had brief nightmares of checking the front window and seeing immigration agents parked in vans outside, waiting to pick her up. They never came. Late Tuesday afternoon, U.S. Immigration authorities announced that they had decided to review Precetaj’s case, which called for her to be deported at 10:30 a.m. that day. [Snip] “ICE is presently conducting a review of Ms. Precetaj’s case, therefore her removal is not imminent at this time,” said
Google has been playing both sides of Washington´s streets by making contributions to conservative political groups that have left-wingers seeing red, it emerged today. But the company is largely just looking out for itself. The tech giant´s grantees include Heritage Action for America, a tea party-oriented organization that some pundits regard as the main catalyst for October´s partial government shutdown. Another is Americans for Tax Reform, led by conservative anti-tax crusader--and liberal nemesis--Grover Norquist. The left-wing Center for Media and Democracy claims that although Google is ´supposedly guided by its "don´t be evil" motto,´ the normally reliably left-wing company has
The Obama administration says its healthcare.gov website is much improved and far less crash-prone, but cybersecurity experts warn that using it is an invitation to hackers and identity thieves. David Kennedy, a former NSA analyst whose company TrustedSec is hired by big companies to test the security of their computer systems, told CNBC that the Obamacare website is a worst-case online scenario. ´It´s really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasn´t built into it,´ Kennedy said. ´We´re talking multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
