Obama´s 81% Support in
New York City is Best in 114 Years

Bloomberg News, by Greg Giroux

Posted By:smcchk, 1/9/2013 9:56:28 PM

President Barack Obama’s support from New York City in the 2012 election was the highest recorded for a candidate in more than 100 years, according to a final tally of votes. Obama beat Republican challenger Mitt Romney by 81 percent to 18 percent in the nation’s largest city, according to a certified vote count released Dec. 31 by the state board of elections. Some New York ballots were counted late in part because of complications caused by Hurricane Sandy. Obama’s share of the vote is the best showing by a presidential nominee in New York since its five boroughs

This country is going to break into half soon. The makers are going to keep migrating away from all the takers.

I could have told you that. Electing Pinky Bloomberg three times is a heavy clue to poor judgment in the Big Apple.

I live in NYC and it isn´t like the rest of America, I assure you. It is the center of the elite sheep and thir acolytes. You can talk to any one of them and they repeat what they hear on CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC. They don´t open their minds to any other possibilty, but to the way they think. Alas! The other 19% whisper low in the bagel shops and the privacy of their apartments where they are safe from the assault of the lemmings.

The only hopeful sign I have heard from one of them is that he knows MSNBC is a joke and Chris Mathews and the rest of the trained seals are ridiculous buffoons. Gee, even one of them got that right.

Most despots usually get around 99% of the vote ... Dear Leader(US) isn´t that good of a despot, he can only steal 81% of the stupid liberal vote in Nooo Yerk City.

Big F---ing deal. new york city has backed every so-called liberal, socialist, marxist, communist democRAT leader for the last 10 to 15 years. The city, new york and new jersey get screwed big time and all they can do is rejoyce about being treated like crap. If we are stupid enough to look to them for leadership, we richley deserve to go on the trash heap of history.

I was born there - and still enjoy visiting - mostly for the museums. But I´ve caught up on my quota of ´´gay musicals´´ and thus avoid Broadway if the wife lets me. Besides, Ellen´s Stardust Diner and the cast of aspiring singers often provides a much better show than what you get via TKTS. And the food is reasonable - for NYC.

For the record, I will never, ever, again support military action to avenge the deaths of New Yorkers. The next time a plane flies into a New York sky scrapper, I will be the first to ask, "why do they hate us?"

New York could burn to the ground and I would consider it to be urban renewal.

So, is this the official count from Honest John´s "You Cast ´Em -- We ´Count´ ´Em" election service?

#14: It´s s-o-o-o much easier to paint with a broad brush [and sometimes foul brush -- per #7] than to think and discriminate. There are landmarks, museums, and historic sites galore in NYC to be preserved and treasured.

These numbers indicate either voter fraud or voter stupidity; there is no other answer.
By the way #4, we have the same problem here in red state Kansas. Many people only get their news from CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and it is gospel to them. If I turn the breakroom tv to Fox you would think the devil himself had walked into the room to steal their souls.

There are mainly only three types of critters who live in NYC (with a few wonderful exceptions like those who can be found here)... 1) The elite, wealthy, know-it-all snobs who want to be (or are already) part of the ruling class and think they know best for everyone else; 2) the ghetto poor who have been subjected and shaped by leftist policies, government schools, and massive doses of false propaganda for several decades--ignorant low info voters; and 3) the artsy types, students, foreigners (incl. illegal and legal aliens), and various others that are cliquish and set in their own little worlds and don´t associate with others who think differently.

I´m with #26; monuments and museums can be rebuilt and refilled, a Republic is FAR more delicate and needs be saved REGARDLESS of the cost to ´buildings´.

Romney’s return to public life stokes

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Waterford school districts drop
federal lunch program

WATERFORD — New federal requirements that foods sold in schools be healthier have some area school districts opting out of the federal lunch program that provides subsidies for serving free or reduced-price meals to low-income students. Opting out means the districts do not have to follow food healthiness requirements. But it also means the districts lose federal money that covers the cost of free and reduced-price meals for poorer students. The Waterford Graded and Waterford High School districts have weighed their options and decided they’d rather forego the money and serve what they want. They’ll continue to cover the costs

Barack Obama is the guy you could usually defeat in an argument but only the most intelligent of your friends realized you had beaten him. George W.

Republicans Support Gay Marriage

A poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center has found that support for gay marriage is increasing in those who identify as Republicans under the age of 30. 61% of those polled who lean towards the party are in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage while only 35% oppose it. This is in stark contrast to Republicans over the age of 50 – only 27% of that audience support it. Pew also found a record high percentage of Americans – 54% – support allowing gays to marry. Only 18% of young Republicans said that “more gay and lesbian couples raising children”

At Grand Army Plaza, beneath the golden equestrian statue of General Sherman, the horses stand, lazily flicking their ears, and occasionally glancing around as a yellow taxi driven by an angry Pakistani wheels around past the Plaza Hotel, brakes squealing, an Al Qaeda friendly Nasheed blaring through the open window. Feathered plumes, scarlet red, sapphire blue, electric purple, matching the colors of the plush linings of their carriages, stir faintly in the wind. The drivers, wearing black top hats and colorful suits, chat with each other while waiting for a tourist from Baltimore or Beijing to take a ride. The horses

JAKARTA, Indonesia – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called climate change perhaps the world´s "most fearsome" destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials, Kerry tore into climate change skeptics. He accused them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay steps needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. A day earlier, the U.S. and China announced an agreement to cooperate more closely on

The further left a radical politician wants to go, the more likely he is to wrap his agenda in a mainstream Republican brand. In his interview with Bill O’Reilly, Obama compared himself to Nixon (not for the reason most Republicans would expect) and in his State of the City address, Bill de Blasio compared himself to Fiorello H. La Guardia; a former Republican mayor of New York City. The constant mentions of La Guardia, a universally popular figure, were a poor mask for a radical address filled with ugly divisive rhetoric, class warfare and schemes that will bankrupt the city.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
