There seems to be panic spreading among Obama supporters. The Democrats are crazy but not stupid enough to dismiss what has transpired in the markets over the last several weeks. It is obvious for all the failings and flailings of the president that one thing that has propped him up was the stunning rise of the financial markets from 2009 lows. Conservatives argue it was a bubble inflated by a Federal Reserve desperate to deny any return on investments except those who accepted the risk of stock ownership.
The socialists claim their wild spending spree is “working” by pointing to the stock market. Just look at the price of Apple and never mind
Jobs Midas is too uncertain to invest Apple’s stash of cash. Now that the stock market bubble has started to deflate, it’s panic city for Bamabots. Polls show new lows for Obama.
Obama’s current trials and tribulations are encouraging to constitutionalists and all lovers of God gifted freedom. Beating Obama in 2012 is job one and that is looking a bit easier. Warning . . . let us not think we are going to beat Obama in a cakewalk. You know the Democrats will cheat and we’ll never know how much.
Put the cheating aside for a moment and let’s accept that half of Americans pay no federal income tax. In fact the government uses the tax code as welfare for low wage workers. Add to that the huge number of people who are dependent on the government for sustenance and it’s easy to see a huge constituency for wild spending government. This isn’t news to anybody but when you think about how the largesse is in many ways concentrated in high population, union blue states . . . hello, McFly, there’s a problem.
As my map is laid out, the race is a squeaker. You might be saying, wait, people are really ticked off and so we are going to flip a lot of traditionally Demococrat states. Really? Are we going to flip Minnestoa and Wisconsin? These two states have voted for Democrat presidential candidates for 40 and 24 years, respectively.
Go here to tinker with the map yourself. Click on a state to get the electoral history. New York and California are big states that will vote for Obama. Draw up your own scenarios but it looks like it will be a tough go against the Won, even if Republicans can settle on the best candidate. Can we try conservative, this time?
If you can draw a map showing an easy Republican win over Obama, let us see it. I acknowledge that Republicans can probably win back Virginia, North Carolina and New Hampshire. The map presented assumes the GOP retakes Florida and Ohio, gulp. That’s no problem, right? 🙂
