Why Obama will win re-election

Shortly after their crushing victory in the 2010, some jubilant Republicans were sure that President Barak Hussein Obama’s days in the White House were numbered.

His approval numbers were down and unemployment was close to 9 percent. Republicans only needed to find a suitable opponent in 2012 and win back the White House.

Many things have changed since 2010.

Who would have thought that the Republicans would have devoured themselves in early 2012? Mitt Romney is the current frontrunner. He has yet to get a clear majority of the votes in any of the three primaries where GOP voters vote directly.

Meanwhile Obama has a billion dollar campaign war chest and has solidified his base on the left.  He is concentrating now on the independents (Indies).   The Indies will be the crucial voting bloc in the 2012 election.  What will Obama give them?

With war clouds gathering across the Middle East, Obama has removed all U.S. troops from Iraq. He is pulling out of Afghanistan. He has told Israel in no uncertain terms that he will not support an attack on Iran. The Iranians are indeed building a nuclear weapon and the means to deliver it.

Appeasement (peace) is the big carrot that Obama will dangle before the Indies for their votes. Lyndon Johnson used it to defeat Barry Goldwater in 1964.

By November the unemployment rate will be manipulated below 8 percent. Mr. O will give the economy a happy face and say he kept his promise to bring the unemployment rate below 8 percent. His big government advisors will put out the word that the crucial economic indicator, growth in Gross Domestic Product, will be 1.1 percent in 2013.  No one remembers that the GDP growth was once 4.24 percent.

The Main Stream Media including the Fox News Channel will trumpet the “Obama Economic Recovery”. Then the media will play Obama’s biggest trump card. They will “go Alinsky” and demonize the right and the Tea Party. They will try to connect the Tea Party with every “evil and hated” right-wing group in existence.

They will call the 2010 House of Representatives the Do Nothing Congress which put a drag on Obama’s economic recovery plans.  Campaigning against Congress worked for the Democrats in 2006 and as far back as 1948.

The media, the Democratic National Committee, and Obama will demonize the rich. Of course, later when the tax bill comes in, Obama’s supporters will find out that they are all “rich”.

The Ron Paul-ites will remember how they and their candidate were the victims of Alinsky tactics by their fellow Republicans. They will either find a third party candidate or fold their arms and stay home.

Will liberal politics trump religion?  Some staunch right wing Evangelical Christians will refuse to vote for Mitt Romney if he is nominated.  He is a cultist to them. Other Evangelicals will simply say that Jesus whispered in their ear to stay home or vote for Mr. O.   Many Indies won’t vote for Romney because the media will point out his ties to the Evangelicals.  It will be a circular firing squad.

Conservative members of the public sector unions will close ranks with their left-wing co-workers and vote for Obama.

Will it be another “Kumbaya moment” and 2008 all over again? The InkDemon fears that it will be.

Conservatives Largest Ideological Group

It’s true!  Conservatives voters are the largest ideological group in American politics, so says the Gallup Poll.

What about liberals?  Those Americans who say they are liberal only make up 21% of the voters.  Some 35% say they are moderate and that is why politics is so mixed up in this country.

The bottom line according to Gallup:

Although the terms may mean different things to different people, Americans readily peg themselves, politically, into one of five categories along the conservative-to-liberal spectrum. At present, large minorities describe their views as either moderate or conservative — with conservatives the larger group — whereas only about one in five consider themselves liberal.

While these figures have shown little change over the past decade, the nation appears to be slightly more polarized than it was in the early 1990s. Compared with the 1992-1994 period, the percentage of moderates has declined from 42% to 35%, while the percentages of conservatives and liberals are up slightly — from 38% to 40% for conservatives and a larger 17% to 21% movement for liberals.

Conservatives can take heart and liberals like BHO should note these figures, too.
