What Election Day bounce?
Voters’ outlook falls to Earth

McClatchy Newspapers, by David Lightman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/12/2012 6:05:44 AM

WASHINGTON — Forget the post-Election Day tradition of a more upbeat America in the weeks after voters go to the polls and make clear what they want from their leaders. A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds that people are gloomy about the economy and Washington’s ability to make it better anytime soon. And they’re not optimistic about the prospects for meaningful compromise between the White House and congressional Republicans during President Barack Obama’s second term.

Then why in hell was this idiot president voted back in office? Blame it on very stupid voters who only think of "other people´s money" and how they can get their hands on it.

A bounce like that occurs when the people are energized and reenforced by the outcome they desired. When an election is stolen, as this one was, everyone is disheartened and gloomy, despondent over an outcome they didn´t expect or want - and that feeds on itself too.

Anger is yet to follow - but it is coming.

Where is our General Washington?

Agreed, #5. Voter fraud provides no voters to poll afterwards. Ergo no bounce.

Does McClatchy ever stop spinning for Obama? Look at this paragraph -
"Obama isn’t even getting a small bump in polls after he decisively beat Republican Mitt Romney last month. His job-approval rating among registered voters was 50 percent, roughly the same as his popular-vote showing."

"Decisively beat" Romney is 50%? If McClatchy favored Romney, line would surely be "narrowly lost to Obama".

There is NO post-election "bounce" because Obama is still campaigning and will keep campaigning to avoid responsibility for his failures. By late January, House Republicans will be accused of giving a former staffer´s wife terminal cancer and being majority shareholders in Bain.

I´m with #5 & #6. Stolen election.

If Romney was President-elect, we would have no fiscal cliff. His aggressive energy development plan (via Executive Order) would have rendered most of our current fiscal problems moot.

Illegal regime in the White House. Electorate will eventually wake up. Whether there is recourse remains to be seen.

I might agree with #5 and #6. If they were concerned about awarding a second term to the Lawlessness One, then why did they vote for him? Two options: (1) Massive voter fraud OR (2) Voters were temporarily deluded, but are beginning to come to their senses. (See 2 Thessalonians:7-9.) In either cases, it´s our misfortune that this was not revealed before the election.

I´m betting that the Soros/ValJar/Obamas team do not have the courage to face up to the reality of this poll, or do they even care? If Fundamental Destruction is their goal, it looks like we are almost there. Time to take off for Hawaii for a 21 day, 4 million dollar vacation. That is how much they care about America.

CNN, by Peter Hamby    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/26/2014 4:57:49 AM     Post Reply
Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

Pistorius has no choice but to

New York Post, by Bob Fredericks    Original Article

A desperate Oscar Pistorius will take the stand when his defense lawyers present their case in his premeditated murder trial in the fatal shooting of his pretty blond girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. “I don’t think we have a choice. The question is when,” defense lawyer Brian Webber told reporters at the High Court in Pretoria Tuesday when asked about Pistorius testifying. Webber spoke after the prosecution rested its case in the “Blade Runner’s” trial. The defense will begin its case Friday, and Pistorius’ lead attorney, Barry Roux, has made it clear Pistorius would take the stand at some point — possibly even as his

Sessions accuses Cruz
of working against him

It’s fair to say that Ted Cruz and Pete Sessions have a strained relationship, if any at all. That was clear on Sunday when Sessions, the powerful chairman of the House Rules Committee, accused the state’s popular junior senator of trying to oust him from Congress. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that Senator Cruz did get involved and had ideas about who he would prefer to work with, and that’s OK,” Sessions said Sunday on Lone Star Politics on KXAS-TV (NBC5). Aides to Cruz did not respond to a request for comment on Sessions’ remarks. On March 4, Sessions

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency today unveiled its proposed rule to bring natural and man-made bodies of water big and tiny under the purview of the Clean Water Act, sparking accusations that the administration has embarked on an unprecedented breach of private property rights without scientific basis. This launches a “robust outreach effort” to gather input in shaping a final rule over the next 90 days, the EPA said, maintaining that the rulemaking isn’t groundbreaking but a clarification effort needed to clearly define streams and wetlands protection after Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006.

Poll Shows Democrats’ Big Push Against

WASHINGTON — More than half of Americans have no idea who the Koch Brothers are, according to a new poll released Tuesday morning. Democrats have spent a large amount of time in the last few weeks posturing Charles and David Koch, the billionaire oil tycoons who donate significant amounts of money to conservative causes and candidates, as the sort of bogeyman of the Republican Party. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid even blamed them in part for Russia annexing Crimea. But according to a new bipartisan George Washington University Battleground Poll, that strategy may be less than fruitful. The poll shows 52% of

Barbara Boxer appeared on MSNBC this morning to declare her support for the HHS contraception mandate, claiming at one point that it protects the religious freedom of employees. As Twitchy captured in this segment, Boxer then goes on to challenge Hobby Lobby’s owners for hypocrisy for not opposing insurance coverage of Viagra for men … which even flummoxes Boxer’s MSNBC interviewer:

   

 



 
Honey, I shrunk the mandate

Filed for bankruptcy in the past six months? Had medical bills you couldn’t pay in the past two years? Been a victim of domestic violence? Received a shut-off notice from a utility company? If you don’t want to buy insurance under Obamacare, you don’t have to. No penalty. The individual mandate may be the most despised part of Obamacare, but the reality is that it’s much smaller than people think. It’s riddled with exemptions, hardships and other loopholes that allow millions of people off the hook for enrollment by March 31. Some exceptions are part of the law. Some were added

Prescription drugs: Harder to get in O-Care?

ObamaCare participants are twice as likely to face administrative barriers to using certain prescription drugs as people who receive health coverage through an employer, according to a new analysis. The research from consulting firm Avalere Health points to a little-known facet of policies on the ObamaCare exchanges known as "utilization management controls." The controls allow insurance companies to limit access to certain medications to try and control costs and prevent abuse. People who enroll in ObamaCare plans are likely to encounter the hurdles if they´re prescribed brand-name cancer or mental health drugs, Avalere found. At least 51 percent of brand-name mental health meds

Uninsured People Don´t Like

Most people (53 percent) now disapprove of Obamacare, compared with 41 percent who approve. Indeed, just a week before the deadline to buy health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges, opposition to the law is as high as the annual cap on out-of-pocket expenses for a family plan at the Bronze level. The bigger problem? Many uninsured people have no idea what that last sentence means. For a new study released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers asked 3,414 Americans a battery of questions about Obamacare. Since most people get health insurance through work, they also

When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
