Michael Barone, a senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner and co-author of the Almanac of American Politics, goes out on a limb and predicts victory for Mitt Romney – by a margin of nearly 100 electoral votes.
I know I will catch flak for this from some on here but . . . my wife and I watched "2016" and it scared the he!! out of both of us. I could never quite lay a finger on why Bronco Bamma would do the things he has done, till that movie. Then it all fell into place. We have passed the movie around to others D & R's. Most of them had the same reaction as we did, except for the hard core kool-aid drinkers. What can I say, you can give a fireman a beer, but you can't make him pee on the fire, so to speak. If anyone else has seen it I would like to hear your thoughts.
I paid to see it in the theatre a few weeks ago (men's night out thingy)... I was shocked. I knew about half of what was going on... however putting it all together both made sense as well as scared me. We HAVE to get this idiot out of power!
BTW: I have been preaching 'go see it' ever since, and a lot of folks have thanked me for nagging them to do so... and I know who they will NOT vote for as a result of watching the movie.
Also, if the Repubs can't beat THIS president with THIS economy, how will they ever win? Seriously, I don't think they have chance as the old paranoid white guys die off and latino/asian minorities start voting in their real numbers. What will they do once Arizona, Colorado, Florida, NC, Georgia, even Texas flip to solid Blue?
Yeah, Texas won't go that soon, but who would have thought VA and NC would move this fast?
It's all dependent on whether the Repubs can pull in Latinos (and they certainly have some common ground socially and economically). The tea-party years have pushed a huge and growing group to Blue, and it will take some major changes to turn that around.
We will give you and your descendants another 6 trillion (or more) in debt, a weakened military...including following through with the promise to reduce our Nuclear ability...oops, that was not meant for prime time, an increase in dependents upon food stamps and government assistance, more class warfare and sticking it to the rich because they are evil and do not deserve what the have, and oh yeah....more Bushwacking, because everyone knows Obama is a God and as such can do no wrong. Obammmaaa Obaaammmma Obammmaaa. Yes we can. Yes we can Change Change Change.
Others....feel free to add to the list.
