SUBJECT: Whaaaaaa....whaaaaaa....whaaaaaa

Submitted by GITTHENET from NORTH CAROLINA on

A whole lot of biotching and crying by liberals today! Along with a whole Lotta riding on the wall, for those who are too stupid to read it...


Our fundraising numbers from June are in. Along with President Obama's campaign, we raised $71 million, making this month our biggest yet. That's something to be proud of.


But we still got beat. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party raised more than $106 million -- making it the second month in a row that they outraised us, this time by $35 million.


That's a big gap. And if we don't do everything we can to close it now, we risk losing more than just a fundraising race in November.


Donate $3 or more today to close the gap.



  1. Dan A from OHIO says Can't wait...
    for the Dims to cry... He bought the Presidency!!!... Dan


  2. Publius #10953 from MARYLAND says I still wouldn't count on it...
    That's just my opinion though. I don't believe the fence walkers will see anything attractive about Romney. It won't be too difficult to get the huge mass of government leaches motivated to vote, at the risk of losing their nipples. Romney hasn't got it. He just hasn't.

    Obama is not having a difficult time defining this race so that it's not about jobs or the economy but about the evil rich Romney coming in to take their stuff. If gas prices stay where they are and nothing gets worse, even if the economy and jobs stay stagnant, Obama keeps his job.


  3. GITTHENET from NORTH CAROLINA says A Las Vegas "odds maker" opines on why Obama will get "killed" by Romney in November.
    Some excellent points to consider. Will it be enough, I dunno.

    Some key counter arguments, IMO 1- Romney is no Reagan 2- Obama, although as bad, maybe worse, he's no Carter. Obama still carries some stardom. Just look at MJ's eyes twinkle daily. 3- Obama doesn't yet have an Iranian hostage scenario... by Wayne Allyn Root Most political predictions are made by biased pollsters, pundits, or prognosticators who are either rooting for Republicans or Democrats. I am neither. I am a former Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, and a well-known Vegas oddsmaker with one of the most accurate records of predicting political races.

    But as an oddsmaker with a pretty remarkable track record of picking political races, I play no favorites. I simply use common sense to call them as I see them. Back in late December I released my New Years Predictions. I predicted back then- before a single GOP primary had been held, with Romney trailing for months to almost every GOP competitor from Rick Perry to Herman Cain to Newt - that Romney would easily rout his competition to win the GOP nomination by a landslide. I also predicted that the Presidential race between Obama and Romney would be very close until election day. But that on election day Romney would win by a landslide similar to Reagan-Carter in 1980.

    Understanding history, today I am even more convinced of a resounding Romney victory. 32 years ago at this moment in time, Reagan was losing by 9 points to Carter. Romney is right now running even in polls. So why do most pollsters give Obama the edge?

    First, most pollsters are missing one ingredient - common sense. Here is my gut instinct: Not one American who voted for McCain 4 years ago will switch to Obama. Not one in all the land. But many millions of people who voted for an unknown Obama 4 years ago are angry, disillusioned, turned off, or scared about the future. Voters know Obama now - and that is a bad harbinger.

    Now to an analysis of the voting blocks that matter in U.S. politics:

    *Black voters. Obama has nowhere to go but down among this group. His endorsement of gay marriage has alienated many black church-going Christians. He may get 88% of their vote instead of the 96% he got in 2008. This is not good news for Obama.

    *Hispanic voters. Obama has nowhere to go but down among this group. If Romney picks Rubio as his VP running-mate the GOP may pick up an extra 10% to 15% of Hispanic voters (plus lock down Florida ). This is not good news for Obama.

    *Jewish voters. Obama has been weak in his support of Israel . Many Jewish voters and big donors are angry and disappointed. I predict Obama's Jewish support drops from 78% in 2008 to the low 60’s. This is not good news for Obama.

    *Youth voters. Obama’s biggest and most enthusiastic believers from 4 years ago have graduated into a job market from hell. Young people are disillusioned, frightened, and broke - a bad combination. The enthusiasm is long gone. Turnout will be much lower among young voters, as will actual voting percentages. This not good news for Obama.

    *Catholic voters. Obama won a majority of Catholics in 2008. That won’t happen again. Out of desperation to please women, Obama went to war with the Catholic Church over contraception. Now he is being sued by the Catholic Church. Majority lost. This is not good news for Obama.

    *Small Business owners. Because I ran for Vice President last time around, and I'm a small businessman myself, I know literally thousands of small business owners. At least 40% of them in my circle of friends, fans and supporters voted for Obama 4 years ago to “give someone different a chance.” I warned them that he would pursue a war on capitalism and demonize anyone who owned a business... that he’d support unions over the private sector in a big way... that he'd overwhelm the economy with spending and debt. My friends didn’t listen. Four years later, I can't find one person in my circle of small business owner friends voting for Obama. Not one. This is not good news for Obama.

    *Blue collar working class whites. Do I need to say a thing? White working class voters are about as happy with Obama as Boston Red Sox fans feel about the New York Yankees. This is not good news for Obama.

    *Suburban moms. The issue isn’t contraception… it’s having a job to pay for contraception. Obama’s economy frightens these moms. They are worried about putting food on the table. They fear for their children’s future. This is not good news for Obama.

    *Military Veterans. McCain won this group by 10 points. Romney is winning by 24 points. The more our military vets got to see of Obama, the more they disliked him. This is not good news for Obama.

    Add it up. Is there one major group where Obama has gained since 2008? Will anyone in America wake up on election day saying “I didn’t vote for Obama 4 years ago. But he’s done such a fantastic job, I can’t wait to vote for him today.” Does anyone feel that a vote for Obama makes their job more secure?

    Forget the polls. My gut instincts as a Vegas oddsmaker and common sense small businessman tell me this will be a historic landslide and a world-class repudiation of Obama’s radical and risky socialist agenda. It's Reagan-Carter all over again.

    But I’ll give Obama credit for one thing - he is living proof that familiarity breeds contempt.


  4. RJR from MISSOURI says here is one excerpt which really nails it..........
    "First, most pollsters are missing one ingredient - common sense. Here is my gut instinct: Not one American who voted for McCain 4 years ago will switch to Obama. Not one in all the land.

    thanks for the post GITTHENET


  5. Publius #10953 from MARYLAND says My gut says...
    that it all boils down to those who are too dumb to have made up their minds yet. Blacks will vote in lockstep no matter how mad they are(always have)...Jewish will vote in lockstep no matter how mad they are (always have)...really disillusioned youth will not vote, but those who do will vote in lockstep...blue collar working class whites will vote the same as in the last election. Either with their union or for the republican, just as last time. White military vets may switch sides but blacks will vote in lockstep. That's just my opinion mind you...
