Land of the cheerful giver…

leave a comment »

We are the most generous citizens in the most generous nation on earth.   Those who live in the red states are the most giving;  those in blue states,  the least.   Isn’t it odd that red states went for a very rich man,  Mitt Romney,  who earned his fortune and has given millions to charity,  while the blue ones,  like the candidate they voted for,  much prefer giving other people’s money away instead of their own?

Religious tenets can explain some,  but not all,  of the disparity,  especially if one factors in the hours spent in charitable work in addition to monetary donations.   Americans are the first to donate to relief funds across the world.   Until His Oneness ascended to the throne,  the American military was often the first to respond on the ground,   and it has always provided superb logistics and stellar organizational skills.

When liberals and progressives complain about how mean we are,  staple a copy of  this article  to their  chests and tell them to shut up and start putting their own money where their mouths are.

Media matters…

You knew the press was voting for His Oneness.  Did you have the sense during the last week of the presidential campaign that the bias increased?    This chart  shows how right you were.   MSNBC did no negative stories  on Obama during the last week,  and no positive ones on Romney.

Policies matter?

leave a comment »

If you think Romney lost because of the policies he promoted,  this video  should disabuse you of that notion.

Another video  shows college supporters of His Oneness chanting  “Karl Marx, Karl Marx, Karl Marx,” and citing abortion,  socialism,  and “Obama phones” as reasons for their support of Pres. Obama’s second term.

True the Vote…

The group has a very  helpful hotline  for those witnessing suspicious action at the polls.   Don’t let Ben Brink   and his group  of retired Navy SEALs and veterans be the only ones watching.    The Black Panthers are back  at polling places.   If one is at your polling place,  use your phone to take good pictures.   I doubt a Panther is patrolling  this polling place.   Don’t assume  vote fraud happens  somewhere else.

Andrew McCarthy  offers two  more reasons His Oneness should not be president for another four years.    Need  another?

Remember when those of us who opposed Motor Voter were branded as racists, etc because we were concerned about the potential for fraud?   Well,  we were right,  as the swing  states have  refused to purge their voter rolls.   Hmm…

Howard Dean is already  claiming voter  suppression.   Are Democrats worried?   Or are they already preparing excuses?   Shouldn’t  these votes  be suppressed?   Shouldn’t  these?

Still more reasons…

leave a comment »

Obama’s policies ensure that  unemployment will  remain high.   A black Democrat from Alabama,  who seconded Obama’s nomination,  makes the case  for Mitt Romney.   (h/t Quin Hillyer)   As a bonus,  the  world fears  Mitt Romney,  while nobody fears Obama,  except  an Irish historian  who knows that a better USA under Romney will make for a better world.   Spengler  also notes  America’s decline under His Oneness and contemplates a further fall under his governance.

His Oneness appears  to have lost  former Virginia governor Doug Wilder.   Illegal voting  is already underway,  as is voter intimidation and disruption by the NAACP,  and  other chicanery  by election officials.   Joe Biden is one heartbeat away from the presidency.   Biden and Obama thought Jon Corzine was a splendid economic adviser and are now  protecting him  from the consequences of his malfeasance at MF Global.

ObamaCare  destroys freedom  of religion —  it takes only 16 seconds for this video to explain.   A second term for Obama would mean that the  destructive and expensive  downsides of his health plan would become apparent to all but the dumbest.   Jay Nordlinger gives you  a taste  of what Obama has done that Romney would not do.   Even a libertarian tells you why  you should  vote for Romney.  (h/t Jonathan Adler)

More welfare beneficiaries are now  above the  poverty line than below it.  Benghazi  —  lies or incompetence — take your pick.   Obama’s loss would  be devastating  for the Left,  and might give the country time to recover.

Clint’s back!

Clint Eastwood has  cut an ad  supporting Romney.   You may now imagine for yourself all the whining and bitching Clint will occasion this time.

Final debate…

leave a comment »

Short version is that Romney  looked presidential,  His Oneness did not.   Fred Barnes shows why Romney passed  the test.   Howie Carr zeroes in on  some of the  best moments.   Selwyn Duke reminds us that the last glimpse of Obama on national TV is  the real Obama,  petulant,  thin-skinned, and a liar.

Did this debate help Obama?  Perhaps his aggressiveness and rudeness bade his base feel better,  but I doubt it will change the numbers,  and even worse for His Oneness,  it won’t leave voters searching for a reason to re-elect him.   Optimism is infectious,  and Romney offered it aplenty.  Obama’s descent into self-righteous indignation had me in mind of Jimmy carter blaming us voters for lacking the exquisite good sense to re-elect him.
