Hey, Look at How the
Obama Machine Crushed
the Romney Campaign

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/25/2013 2:49:11 PM

The most effective email subject line of the 2012 US presidential campaign began with one word: Hey. That’s the finding of the massive Obama campaign operation known as “The Cave.” That and many other startling findings are detailed in a report on how the Obama campaign went about re-electing a president who boasted a record of failure and divisiveness. The Cave was to US politics what the Hubble Space Telescope would have been to Neanderthals: An advancement so profound that it verges on magic. It was also a very non-traditional approach to politics, in that it

Comments:
When I read articles like this it makes me weep tears of frustration. The GOP had better get up to speed with current technology and fight as ruthlessly as the DNC or we are doomed to lose every upcoming election. Where did those millions of dollars go that were sent to the Romney campaign?? It´s outrageous that they were so incompetent.

republicans lost because they nominated an establishment, political class nominee in Romney.

a 65 year old investment banker whose father ran against Nixon and has never had a beer" sheer brilliance

cant say much about a party who lost twice to a lightweight like 0bama.

I´m not convinced. I´m not talking about voter fraud here, I´m just saying they are claiming they had this incredible machine that targeted voters, yet their numbers went down compared to 2008. So the only thing that saved them was that Republicans didn´t vote. How is that a strategy? And why were they so sure about it?

I am a fossil. I hated it when the Romney campaign called us and e mailed us and called us and e mailed us........I will never again donate to a political campaign. It destroyed the peace and quiet of our household. It did NOT make us more or less likely to vote and we would not care if Romney had employed an Obamalike campaign making us feel like EVERYBODY was doing it. Perhaps that´s the difference between being grown-up and an adolescent but I don´t care. In the end Romney supporters were not adolescents. I´m not sure that´s a bad thing.

Romney is a great nominee and great guy.

As Ann Coulter has observed...
If the 2012 voters had been as white as the 1980 voters, Romney´s victory would have
outpaced Reagan´s 1980 stunner.

The demographics have changed.
We have a nation of whiners and losers who want to suck off Uncle Sam.

We do have to find out the best way to get voters to the polls.
We can still win.
But the game is changing each time.

Also the self-righteous who dump on the GOP gave us DimWitz Houses that passed Obamacare.
Keep the GOP in control in the House, and no more Obamacares.
But that would be practical and logical.

More fun to be spiteful and cast blame.
More fun to live under a Wannabe Kommie Dicktater, too... right?

The Kommie Obie WON Kenya-Obie is better than Romney.
Isn´t he? .... s/o

Download The Cave and flip through it. Takes less time than you think, but the strategy and tactics will be a lot clearer. It focuses on fundraising from people with money and weak minds. I guess there are a lot of those in America.

A year and change that all the GOP contenders spent slinging cesspool goo and sharp objects at each other sure helped nothing when the last man left standing had to face the Teflon coated opposition who has all of his laundries sealed and full backing from the media.

That was an absolutely brilliant PARTY STRATEGY for political suicide.

There is something wrong with this picture.
In 2008 Zippy was like fly poop all over the place with Styrofoam Greek columns and emails nonstop from moveon asking for $5.

This time he could only make time to schmooze at high price dinners while the Wookie jumping jacked her way from one TV stage to another.

The bottom line is more voters turn out to vote than registered voters. Who is up in arms about voter fraud ? Certainly not Mitt.

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White
House had IRS target conservatives
Fox News, by Dana Blanton    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 8:47:35 PM     Post Reply
Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 7:53:38 PM     Post Reply
Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

Eric Cantor: Obama and I totally

immigration yesterday
Hot Air, by Allahpundit    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 7:41:24 PM     Post Reply
It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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
