There has been a narrative created by the malignant media that it’s “all over, Obama is going to be reelected.” The polls show he is stretching out a lead over Romney, and the Republicans are just in denial. CNN “conservative” talking head Erick Erickson wrote:
I’ve been in politics long enough to know that the louder one side gets complaining about the polls, the more likely it is that this is the side that, in reality, actually is losing.
What a bunch of hooey. Most folks are frustrated our side is naval gazing instead of confronting the false narratives. Watching baseball and football instead of the egotistical media is now preferred in most households – people are tuning out the craziness. There are an increasing number of conservative independents who simply can’t abide associating with the Republican Party if the Republicans on the cable news shows are representative of the Republican Party. I understand this sentiment, but I prefer changing the party from within instead of abandoning it.
The “creating a narrative” making news for ratings instead of just reporting the news has been going on for a long time, but today there is no Walter Cronkite who controls the news. Not enough Republicans are refuting these media created narratives. Rush Limbaugh is doing his level best to refute the lies. The charts below are intended to refute the narrative that the economy is too difficult, and Obama just needs more time.
On September 11, 2001 our nation was attacked, and almost 3,000 people were murdered in New York City, Washington, DC, and in a field in Pennsylvania. Commercial jets were grounded for weeks, and the financial district in New York was a disaster area and chaotic. Our US economy took a nosedive, but it did rebound, and yet, the dishonest media were blaming President Bush in 2004 for a high unemployment economic recession.
Who knows why Democrats blame Pres. Bush for everything that is wrong, and the media, including “conservatives,” give Pres. Obama a pass on everything. Perhaps one should follow the money as an explanation for the leftist media and residents of DC. The USA Today wrote a column with an interesting graphic. Their takeaway in this column is that states with Republican Governors did better because either they were producing oil or the poor in their state are receiving more food stamps than the states with Democrat Governors. The graphic below presents the facts one should know before making any such statements.
While there are many voters who are not aware of the unemployment data below or the average income data in the USA Today piece, a majority of them are painfully aware of their personal circumstances with respect to employment and income. This awareness will not be forgotten just because a tainted media try to make news with the creation of a narrative.
