Politics 2012: It hasn´t been two months since Barack Obama won re-election, but already we´re finding out things that were kept from us during the campaign. Expect to hear more in the coming months. lElections are clarifying events, we´re told. But sometimes what they clarify is merely the gap between what we were told during the campaign and the reality on the ground. Often, the two don´t match. That´s certainly true with Obama. How often in recent weeks have we learned that what we heard on the campaign trail from the Obama camp, and which were echoed by
Comments: ACTUALLY only the Low Information Voters WILLINGLY drank the Hussein brand of Flavor-Aid. A LOT of us were NEVER DUPED from the beginning about the Godless Humanist Hussein Regime or the Democrat Party.
Anymore I just call ´em two times stupid! Hey, it´s just easier than using the more lengthy, but far more accurate reference of: Dumbed-down, barely aware, dope-smoking, self-absorbed, media-influenced, celebrity-obsessed, Food-Stamp wielding, Kool-Aid drinking, entitlement rich, uninformed, government-dependent, busted-ass Obamaphone zombies as well as the ignorant, gullible, White guilt-ridden, Volvo-driving, Birkenstock-wearing, bottled-water-drinking, Politically Correct, Xanax-disabled, Valium-dependent liberal lemmings!
Most people don´t read. I think we underestimated the power of shows like the View, Leno, Letterman to influence the idiots. None of them even know where Benghazi is. The Idiocracy wasn´t a movie, it was a documentary.
Yes, those who voted for him were duped. Have they "found" that they were duped? No. The kool-aid has long-lasting effects, and the denial is so deep, I don´t know what it will take - judging from the libs & black on my radar.
The Dems and the Press have been lying to the People for 4 years. The biggest lie is that taxes won´t go up and big government will care for you better than you could. Within a month, people will begin to learn the hard way, when even more lose jobs, everyone pays more taxes, and the free healthcare doesn´t develop.
It wouldn´t have mattered if the man had a history of this kind of behavior, they would have voted for him. He does have that history. It wouldn´t have mattered if he had written books and given speeches that said what he planned to do, they would have voted for him. He did write the books and give the speeches. It wouldn´t have mattered if he had a history, for four years, on the national stage and that the country he led lost:money, lives, futures, its Constitution, they would have voted for him. And he did ALL of the previously mentioned things.....and now has four more years to destroy MY COUNTRY!
I would say ´´elections have consequences´´ but that´s getting old and tired. The past two elections have been carried by unions, white guilt and low information voters. And they don´t seem to give a damn about consequences...
I say bull to this article, especially to this line, "So were Americans duped? Sure. They were told to believe one thing only to discover right after the election reality was something else." Everything the writer says was hidden from the masses was there all of the time. They didn´t want to know. Now the writer tells us it´s all come out since the election. Bull. The people who voted for O still aren´t paying attention. To paraphrase Hooper in "Jaws", "They aren´t going to believe there´s a shark out there until comes up and bites them in the arse."
The truth about BO and the complete failure of progressive philosophy is readily available and obvious. The majority of people CHOOSE to believe something else and continue to do so. They live in fantasy land.
Nor is this unprecedented. FDR was elected over and over even though his policies were extending and deepening the depression. People will believe what they want, even in the face of obvious evidence. It took a World War to pull us out of FDR´s idiocy.
What will it take this time? World collapse? Arab terrorists launching a nuclear attack?
This is the risk of democracy, people can "elect" to be morons.
The difference between then and now is, they are elected not in spite of their dishonesty, but because of it. The Idiot Electorate loves that Barack Obama is fooling everyone and that the utterly corrupt Court Eunuch media is acting as his armed guards. They love it. Country be damned, they love it.
They were not duped. They wanted free stuff and not a job. They voted for the Kenyan idiot welfare boy because he promised them free stuff paid for by those of with jobs. They intended this result. Now we just have to pay for it or revolt. I already bot my guns.
I am going to copy this article and send it to my SIL who is 80..and altho an intelligent woman..a low information voter or I should say no information voter..she voted for BHO twice...it boggles the mind..she has no cable..just the alphabets and PBS..and our local paper.which has turned into a liberal rag..she even filled in her mother´s absentee ballot for BHO..MIL is 104 and doesn´t have a clue of course at this point.. It makes me crazy but at this point, I am not going to start a family issue..but, I did show her something that she didn´t know..actually she doesn´t know what she doesn´t know...she always said she hated GWB because he didn´t do anything for AIDS..then I had to print out what Bob Geldorf and Bono said about W..of course, she said..well, I didn´t know that!!! AAAARGH!!!!

I quit sending these informative articles to my relatives when I found out were just deleting them and making fun of me behind my back. When the crash comes and they come asking for food, I´ll tell them to get it from Obama and slam the door in their face.
though i voted for rom i am glad he didn´t win. zero and the dems need to wade through the mess they created. i don´t want the repubs to be blamed for the trouble we are facing. i lived through the great depression and though i was 4 years old i never forgot it.
#39 ~ I appreciate your point of view... but Bush will continue to be blamed for any negative outcomes over the next 4 years. The LiMi (Low-information, Media-influenced) voters are now running the show
Even with all he stolen votes(2 million more blacks and latinos than in 2008) Obama still got barely over 50% and if read the news it looks like there´s only 10 conservatives left in this country.They´re trying desperately to break the back of small businesses which makes the employer and employees independent of gov´t handouts. Besides if you´re white and go to a social service office,they´ll call the cops on you for being an intruder.
The college crowd loves the free living expense money they get from Obama. I say free because they expect loan forgiveness any time now.
On the other hand you have some high profile blacks saying Obama is too white and he´s shunning the brother´s needs.
Absolutely many of Obama supporters were duped, but many knew exactly what they were voting for - they are kindred spirits. I´m not so sure so many favor him, however; and I don´t believe for a minute the last election was an honest one; ergo, I don´t know how many were duped.
Blaming Republicans and branding them the party of the rich is very long standing. Herbert Hoover, and the Republicans, were blamed for the depression forever after. . When I was working at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft during WWII a co worker was amazed to learn that I was a Republican and asked me to confess that it was because I came from a wealthy family.
We hear all the time that Republican leadership does not explain clearly enough, allows itself to be vilified, etc. But think what Republicans are up against. The first thing an immigrant is told when he arrives here is that the Republicans are the party of the rich. They swallow that whole. Not many are smart enough to see they are being misled and most of the ones who do are from countries that had communist governments. No one pays any attention to them.
I have a cousin who recently told me that she feels so sorry for President Obama. That he doesn´t want to, but he has to raise taxes to help pay for the mess that he inherited from President George W. Bush. I replied that it´s been four years and isn´t it time for the President to take some responsibility for our present state of economic disarray? She said that we are not in disarray - that President Obama saved General Motors and that our economy is growing by leaps and bounds and that the President just needs a little more help from the ´richest people´. I asked her if she knew how much General Motors still owed the taxpayers of the United States. She said General Motors is making huge profits, has paid off its entire debt (!!!), and is more profitable than ever. I asked her if she is still getting her disinformation from, ´The View´. She said, of course - those ladies really keep up on things.
Was she ´duped´ into voting for President Obama? Not at all - she still agrees with, and supports, him and the Democrat talking heads 100%. As for me, I´d like to say more, but it´s holy Christmas day.

Imagine the following NY Times headline and sub-headlines and enjoy, if only:
"ROMNEY RETRACTS CONCESSION, DEMANDS INVESTIGATION OF 2012 ELECTIONS-Electors on hold after injunction issued by unanimous DC Appeals Court
-Whistleblowers coming forward with documents, tapes, photos of "irrefutable evidence" of stolen Romney/GOP senate candidates´ votes- Upwards of 12-20MM pub votes "machine expunged" discovered, now recovered and being held, FEC spokesman claims-
It would be great news if Americans know already that they were duped but willful ignorance is not overcome this easily. It takes lots of real suffering and all of us will have a full share in that whether we were among the duped or not.
Many people I know that voted for PBO voted because of his skin color, period. It did not matter what his politics were - his skin is black and that´s what counts.
I heard The Great One, Mark Levin, one day and he made this statement: leftists don´t care about solutions to problems, they only want to control you - so very true - who cares if laws they pass work (and we know most don´t - look at Chicago and the gun laws) just as long as they take away the rights of the law abiding citizens!!
Every employer that has to lay off a worker, cut back their hours or start deducting from the employees pay for health insurance should do so with the explanation of ‘If you voted for Obama, campaigned for Obama or did not vote,’ thank Obama for what is happening to you and many, many others.
How polite! How genteel! How politically correct! How close to me is the nearest air-sickness (barf) bag because I really don’t wanna make a big mess right here on this brand new carpet?
There’s just something fundamentally absurd about allowing people who know nothing about anything to be given the right to vote in an election held in the United States of America. Scooping up busloads of oblivious, totally ignorant people, getting them registered and then carting them off to precincts, after telling them how to vote and who and what to vote for, and then labeling what they’ve done their “ground game” ought to result in a one-way trip to court and prison.
Unfairness? Voter suppression? And dare we forget those who can be depended upon to reflexively make the accusation of racism?
On the old Radio and TV game show, “You Bet Your Life,” host Groucho Marx used to give contestants who won nothing at least a chance to win something by answering the question, “Who was buried in Grant’s Tomb?” They’d say “Grant” and win a consolation prize. However, in truth, one is entombed, not buried, in a tomb. Details! Details! Details!
#17,Fool me once, shame on thee. Fool me twice shame on me. Fool me thrice, the fool I be!
These weren´t duped, they were doped with the drug "freestuff." What bothers me most is that many well educated, intelligent, and at least partially informed are the "idiots" that put the Squatter back in office.
It is the "dopes" in the GOP that don´t have to guts to dig up the fraud that overcame the well informed. It is the hard working of US that got duped and are going to have to defend our freedoms that are rapidly being stolen by the "dopes."
Its time to send him packing, call your Congressman to vote him out of office on Jan. 3, 2013, because he is not qualified to hold the office of President. It is, as matter of fact, their duty. He is not qualified to be President under Article II, Section 1.
It only requires as simple majority under Amendment 20 of the Constitution. The House of Representatives must determine if he is qualified to hold office. He is not.
He is, by virtue of his father, a British subject, and once a subject, always a subject. That is make clear in Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution. All those dual citizens, born before the Constitution was ratified, were permitted to be President. All born after were, by law, not British subjects if both parents were only American citizens.
Obama does not meet the requirement of being born prior to the ratification of the Constitution, and as a consequence, is not qualified to hold that office.
Educate your Congressman. It only takes a majority to dethrone him.
I don´t think anyone was duped. Obozo simply promised everybody a free ride and lots and lots of free "stuff" and it would all be paid by taxing "the rich". And it was bought by enough people to win re-election. It´s that simply. If you surveyed Obozo voters, you would probably find out that the majority of the don´t know where Lybia, Syria, Israel, or any place know as the middle east is. Give them a map and they couldn´t find any of these places. The only bit of federal policy they know is how to scam the system to get their free stuff. At that, the excel beyond belief.
#53 has got it right. We were not duped; we were defrauded. Yes there are low information voters and dupes and idiots, but there are also evil people who will stop at nothing to destroy this country.
Read "Master Plan to Steal an Election" at www.brushfires-of-freedom.com/steal-an-election.html That´s what happened. That´s why there is no sense of momentum or support behind anything Obama is doing or wants to do, and in fact there is growing resistance. He didn´t win. He lied, cheated and stole, and he is being aided and abetted by our left-wing media. And everyone senses it.
#51-----Yes, yes, yes! These voters are still blaming Bush for this mess. Obama is the innocent by-stander. He didn´t do anything except carry on Bush´s failures. The biggest one was TARP!!!! We all know that TARP was the result of Democrat financial failure. That´s why the morons love to blame Bush, because in their little pea brains history started with that Bush blunder. The Dems started it and can´t seem to finish it. We are in for a long dark period in our history if we cannot stop blaming Bush.
Rush said we used to call the low-information voters "morons". But watch your 401Ks. Levin interviewed a professor from the New School, a small college in New Jersey. Her name is Theresa Ghirarducci (sp might be off slightly). She proposes that 401Ks are a bad deal for the US and the Taxes missing frome that total $81 bilion,i.e that tax-payer saves and the govt does not get.Also the boomers and beyond are looking like they will run out of money in their retirement.(Further there is no SS for boomers in a cash acct, just a chit from the feds, my comment) So briefly her propsal is that the govt takes the 401Ks and puts that amt with the chit for the Social Security amount and issues a 4.4% annuity to all retirees. It might extend to IRAs too. Listen to her interview at www.marklevinshow.com This propsal has had Congressional RFI hearings and it is moving forward, I think. Professor says current plan is a bad deal for the USA, better to get the 4.4% the govt determines for you. This could happen over night.
Wait until working Americans receive their first paychecks of 2013, just as the Christmas bills are coming due, right before Obama´s second inauguration. Maybe then it will dawn on Obama voters what they have done to America on November 6. Maybe not. Low information and all.
Speaking of low information, the MSM´s wall-to-wall, glowing coverage of Obama, along with their nasty and relentless attacks on Mitt Romney, likely cost the Republicans 8 - 10% of the vote. The MSM stole this election for Obama.
#70, thank you for the link. I have said this all along. The numbers for the last election simply don´t add up to an Obama victory. And again, all this talk about all the other reasons why Romney lost simply weakens who we are. When democrats lose they don´t rethink their message. They get more determined, more strident and more vicious. And, they continue to win, even when they lose. We don´t need to change our message; we need to change our methods.
Obama reminds me of Jim Jones. When persuasion failed, Jim Jones told his goons to force the people to drink the KoolAid. Can you imagine how the Johnstown mess must have looked to the poor healthcare workers when they saw the bodies. I hope the Obama Government (since the do not believe in God) do not end up looking like Johnstown.
Time magazine gave us a hint a few weeks ago what the administration might be thinking about 401Ks and IRAs. There is between 3 and 4 trillion dollars sitting untaxed in both types of accounts. The government could take those accounts from the owners and give an owner, instead, a 3% interest rate return of their funds for life. Upon death the funds would not go into your estate. Since they are already held by the USG they would revert to the US Treasury. Argentina did this with retirement accounts some time ago. With 16 trillion in US debt this would be still only be a drop in the bucket but the fact of these untaxed funds just sitting out there might be too temping for the government to resist.
We were duped by the RNC. They spent a billion of our dollars and failed to deliver the obvious message of the criminality of Obama and his dictatorial czars. Millions more would have voted if only told the truth.
The lies are continuing & expanding... There is a tv spot running on cable channels that is selling Obama coins... And the speel of great Obozo accomplishments they list are absolutely hilarious... if it wasn´t so sad.
My daughter goes to a university in Ohio, and she told me that she doesn´t know anyone there who voted for Romney. She said they think that "he hates women," and that he "would close down Planned Parenthood" and then "poor women wouldn´t have anywhere to go to get their mammograms." My daughter knows this is malarky. I told her that if PP gives ANY mammograms, it´s probably an accident, and as far as I know, they only give referrals! (My daughter did NOT vote for Obama.)
Remember that the Dems have the Senate and (2) TWO Supreme Court Judgeships are soon to become eligible. So bad as it is and appears it will be NOW, IT WILL GET WORSE when the Dems get in charge and pick up another Kagen and Sonia.
They were willingly duped. America´s basic belief system is Beat The System. Something for nothing. The free lunch. More Free Stuff. Rules are for suckers. Rules created by lawyers, people trained to manipulate, distort, and pervert language, people immune from their own rules. A tax system designed for thieves and frauds. Rules so complex and incomprehensible that lawyers don´t bother to read them. They know what the deal is. Beat the System, rig the system, beat the suckers.
The Obama voter voter wanted something for nothing, and expected someone else to pay for it. Obama said (lied) he could do that. It might work for a while, but not long term. The Obama voter is about to learn there is no such thing as a free ride. Regretably, the Obama voter will refuse to figure this out so Obama is safe.
Obama voters only care about the handouts and all the free stuff. They and the union drones, public and private, will not vote for anyone who in anyway could be a threat to their gravy train. They care about nothing else. They now have the real Americans outnumbered. Those whose votes that should really count the most elected Romney president by a landslide.
It was the 47% that do not pay income taxes, the 47 million that extract Food Stamps, the young that do not want to repay student loans, the millions on permanent fraudulent disability. The Communists/Progressives knew exactly what they were doing. In the end their purpose is to destroy Christian Civilization.
We truly are surrounded by idiots. Dupes. Socialists. Activists. Community Organizers. Homosexuals. Lesbians. Unwed Mothers. Welfare Lovers. Foodstamp lovers. Politician liars and thieves. Fake organizations (Acorn, Aclu, et al) full of conniving, phony, far left dweebs. Twerps. Sissies. Illegals. Racists who vote only for their own race.Hollywood boneheads and Advertising liars. Media lap-dog rump-swab Hussein-lovers. Twisted left-wing academic advisors who indoctrinate rather than teach. And, as Rush so aptly named them, "low-information voters" who permeate our university campuses, neighborhoods, and ghettos across America, seeking gifts and handouts rather than true American leadership. Is it any wonder we´re going to Hades in a handbasket?
Merry Christmas to whats left of our American heritage.And a Happy New Year.
Earlier Tuesday, NBC News reported that President Barack Obama had shaken hands with Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe. However, the UK Telegraph´s Josie Ensor reported that Obama "was asked to take his seat just before reaching Mugabe." Complicating matters, another article in the UK Telegraph also claimed that Obama had shaken hands with Mugabe--in very similar terms to those used in the NBC article. Breitbart News caught the discrepancy--and suddenly the NBC News article was corrected, with no notice. Before: On his way to the rostrum, Obama also shook the hand of Robert Mugabe, the strongman ruler of Zimbabwe, and hugged Dilma Rousseff, the
The budget deal announced Tuesday by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) would boost federal spending by around $65 billion over the next two years. This new spending is offset by increasing user fees, boosting pension contributions by federal employees and the military, and other minor changes. Ryan and Murray also say that the deal will reduce the deficit by $23 billion over the next 10 years. This reduction, however, doesn´t start until 2022. According to a 4-page summary document of the deal obtained by Breitbart News, "[t]he budget proposal saves $28 billion over ten years by requiring
President Obama will extend his mini-amnesty for young illegals, said Cecilia Muñoz, White House director of domestic policy. “As long as this president” is in power, “you will be able to renew your deferred action,” Muñoz told one questioner during an online question-and-answer session on immigration conducted via Skype. So far, Obama’s deputies have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected. Roughly 11 million
The White House insisted Wednesday that President Obama’s credibility had not been damaged by the botched rollout of Obamacare, despite a series of recent polls showing his diminished standing with the American public. "I don´t think I agree with that conclusion,” White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said of the assertion that fewer Americans trust the president because of broken promises over his signature domestic achievement. However, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 54 percent of respondents disapproved of the president’s job performance, driven mainly by the problem-plagued rollout of Obamacare. Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed said Obamacare was
The death of iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela prompted torrents of gushing praise from world leaders and media this week. Mandela was widely depicted as a near-flawless human being. BBC presenter Evan Davis said Mandela ranked near Jesus in the "pantheon of virtue"; Bono said Mandela was "stubborn ´til the end for all the right reasons, it felt like he very nearly outstared his maker." But the truth about Mandela is somewhat more shaded. He will be remembered for his magnificent legacy of racial unification in the aftermath of his release from prison in 1990. Mandela´s critics worried, not unreasonably,
Imagine if a provision in ObamaCare allowed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to dictate directly to doctors which services they could and could not provide their patients—what individual tests they could conduct, which treatments they could offer, and medicines they could prescribe. Americans would be outraged. Yet some Republicans on Capitol Hill are about to help Democrats pass such a provision for Medicare patients. The Senate Finance Committee is set to vote on permanent "doc-fix" legislation Thursday that grants the federal government broad new authority to determine "applicable appropriate use criteria" for the full range of outpatient medical
Most of Washington seems to have bought the White House claim that the 36 federal exchanges are finally working, and glory, glory, hallelujah. But if that´s really true, then what explains the ongoing secrecy and evasion? On Wednesday the Health and Human Services Department continued its Victorian-era strip tease and allowed a glimpse into the Affordable Care Act´s "enrollment" for November. Out of respect for a free press, reporters ought to boycott these releases because they´re so selective that they reveal little about real enrollment. But we´ll try to parse the data as best we can without the White House high
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
