Yes, we lost. But I don’t think it’s necessarily fair to say that ACORN stole the election, do you? PPP´s first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard...and also declining in numbers. 49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn´t exist anymore.
Although the name Acorn may not exist, the org still does. I cannot believe that Romney got less votes than McPain as he was a better candidate. And that donkey, Obomination, is running around like he won in a landslide when he also got less votes.
Democrat voter fraud is wise spread, and comes in many forms. How about the 140% turn out in St. Lucie county Fl. Or 90% of Philly precincts with not one vote for Romney. Or witnessed rigged voting machines, dead voters, animals, senile and mentally handicapped led into voting booths ? seiu busing voters from one county to another to vote again. Lost or denied military ballots. All done in critical swing states.
Name one voting machine glitch that turned up Romney when Obama was voted for. On the other hand, thousands of Obamas showed up for Romney votes. People in Ohio even learned they had already voted. Stolen -49% is way low!
Bigger issue than vote fraud is media corruption that does not hold this administration accountable. I spent today (in mandatory annual training) hearing about government accountability and transparency. At a time when this government acts like there are NO checks and balances, the agency I work for sells the little people a bill of goods about Good Government. The disconnect is amazing.
This is a lousy article. I don´t know who this Doherty guy is, but the snarkiness level of this is worthy of CNN, not Townhall. And FYI Daniel, the GOP´s best shot at retaking the Senate was in 2012, not 2014. And we´ve seen the results. 2014 isn´t going to be any better than 2012, and we can probably forget about 2016 as well. Until we tackle the entitlement culture head on, the GOP will be lucky to win anything, let alone a national election.
So Townhall is now of the ´if you can´t beat them, join them´ persuasion? What´s up with that, Danny? Afraid you would be so outre´ in Washington if someone thought you were actually one of THOSE conservatives? Call up Andrew Sullivan. You guys will certainly have lots to talk about!
Take away multiple voters in states where no ID is required. Take away illegal aliens. Take away computer hacking. What do you have? Romney won. But the gutless wonders (aka Republican elite) won´t fight. I blame them for the mess we´re in as much as the democrats.
One of the biggest problems is we have no way to do any integrity checks to confirm that results are valid. In most cases, there´s no paper trail at all, and its far too easy to hack the network of the voting system to alter the results. Does anyone think that for the control of a $5 Trillion budget the dims wouldn´t devise ways to hack the voting system?
My theory...As NO ONE has EVER given the American people a complete and accurate accounting of the Eight Hundred Billion dollar stimulus money, I believe a BIG hunk of the money was passed out to labor unions who now have unlimited seed money for their GOTV efforts. We´ve heard reports from citizen´s who witnessed busloads of Somali´s at the polls. Who paid for the buses? Were these voters coming to the polls as an act of good citizenship or were they paid? What about early voting...that seems like an invitation to cheat for anyone dishonest.
Yes, I´m disgusted with the Dem´s but equally disqusted with a Republican party incapable of foreseeing the very real possibility that the Dem´s would cheat! Where were the poll watchers and the ARMY of attorney´s I expected to see challenging irregularities?
Of course it was stolen, but if there had been an uproar the ignorant Obama voters would have rioted and probably burned a few cities flat. They will riot soon enough when they discover how badly they have screwed themselves. I give it about a year. Arm yourselves.
How about we all Google "voter fraud St. Lucie" and see if there´s any other explanation for the 140% "turnout". Of course, it could be that Florida´s Republican Governor and Secretary of State are complicit in the anti-Romney conspiracy. In that case, the ringleader must be Romney himself since he has refused to take any action to correct this egregious violation of his rights and ours. I find it implausible that Romney would allow any such thing. Mitt Romney is many things, but he is not someone who would stand by and let his opponent win by cheating. Romney knows he lost. His supporters should acknowledge that and stop trying to retroactively stuff the ballot box in his name.
Perhaps this results from the fact that the money we earn to support our children is extorted from us by the various levels of government, to give to the shiftless and their swarms of future beggars, who doubtlessly will vote themselves a larger share of our paychecks.
The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare. The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging. HHS’s grand prize-winning video, announced Monday by the White House, features a young woman named Erin McDonald singing an Obamacare-loving version of Jessie J’s hit single, “Price Tag.” Without a hint of irony, McDonald sings her chorus: “Ain’t about
A Texas middle school principal has been placed on paid leave after she banned the speaking of Spanish by students while in class. In Hempstead, a town of about 6,000 about 50 miles northwest of Houston, a school district spokeswoman confirmed that Amy Lacey has been placed on leave pending investigation of her Nov. 12 announcement over the intercom at Hempstead Middle School. More than 50 percent of the school enrollment of about 330 students is Hispanic. KHOU-TV of Houston reports a letter was sent by the district to school parents on December 2 assuring that neither the district nor
Republican lawmakers bashed the Obama administration at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday for opting not to enforce core parts of the Affordable Care Act, such as minimum requirements for individual healthcare plans. Rep. Trent Franks (Ariz.), the chairman of the Judiciary panel’s Constitution and Civil Justice subcommittee, said Congress should sue the administration to spur Obama to enforce the healthcare law as written. “I think that’s the only choice we have, and that’s not just on ObamaCare, that’s on a host of different things,” Franks told The Hill. “He simply embodies a breathtaking arrogance that ignores the law he’s sworn to
Sunny, the Obama’s new puppy, knocked down a two-year-old girl Wednesday who was visiting the White House for the unveiling of the holiday decorations. Sunny and Bo were brought into the State Dining Room to visit children who were taking part in holiday crafts. The year-old puppy tried to escape her handler, knocking down 2-year-old Ashtyn Gardner in the process. The little girl got up quickly and her dad John said she was fine. Michelle Obama was present and helped Ashytn to her feet. The First Lady later checked on the little girl again. Obama was unveiling the 2013 holiday decorations and had invited
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) on Tuesday reintroduced legislation that would require the government to study the most practical ways of taxing drivers based on how far they drive, in order to help fund federal highway programs. Blumenauer´s bill, H.R. 3638, would set up a Road Usage Fee Pilot Program, which he said would study mileage-based fee systems. He cast his bill as a long-term solution for funding highway programs, and proposed it along with a shorter-term plan to nearly double the gas tax, from 18.4 cents to 33.4 cents per gallon. "As we extend the gas tax, we must also think about
Neil Cavuto took on Democratic Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR) over a new push to nearly double the federal gas tax to $0.33 a gallon. In the contentious Your World interview, Rep. Blumenauer argued that because the gas tax hasn’t increased in 20 years, the government faces an “inability to fund any transit funding next year.” Cavuto fired back, “You’re talking about doubling the gas tax and acting like it’s no big deal!” Turning to transportation revenue, the Fox News host said, “We do have a lot of other means by which we raise money to help our infrastructure, and our infrastructure still
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
