Obama is a Sitting Duck

by CarterFliptMe

I understand conservatives' angst in nominating a candidate in the GOP Primaries, but I remain optimistic that whoever is nominated will thrash Obama soundly.  It may even be more one-sided than Reagan vs Carter was in 1980.  In a CBS poll from December 9th, 2011, a staggering 75% of Americans say that under Obama the country is going in the wrong direction. This is a crucial element, obviously, because it speaks directly to whether Americans would be willing to give Obama another 4 years (of going in the wrong direction).

A Gallup poll from December 22, 2011 shows that 87% of Americans think that it is "a bad time to find a quality job".  Not only is this a horrendous statistic, but it has been hovering around 90% for about the last two years.  At the start of Obama's term, in 2008, that percentage was around 60%.  At this time in Bush's second term, the number was about 48%.  This speaks directly to the old campaigner's question, "Are you better off now than you were four years ago?"

The increase in the negative outlook on quality jobs occured at about the same time that ObamaCare was signed into law.  The passing of ObamaCare has stifled job creation, worsening Americans' bleak outlook on the job market.  The administration's refusal to push for fast-tracking to the Supreme Court the various constitutionality questions surrounding the individual mandate in the law has exacerbated the uncertainty, and thus, the negativity.

Keep in mind, all of these numbers are before the GOP has even begun running ads highlighting various failures, problems, and scandals the country and the administration faces. (See: Occupy Wall Street, Solyndra, and Fast and Furious)

So keep smiling Republicans, Obama, with his Alinsky tactics and horrible economic policies, has rendered himself a sitting duck.

Paul Ryan Wants to End Another Democrat Lie

by CarterFliptMe

Democrats have been in the habit for quite some time of making absurd claims and accusations with no basis in fact, reality, or believability. They make these statements without offering any kind of proof supporting their claims, and the network news, along with mainstream media outlets, dutifully report them as facts. As a result, much of the 'old-school', or 'lamestream' media has become irrelevant.

Increasing numbers of people have found that through modern media, they are able to get facts that had previously been ignored, or simply misreported. Because of this, we have seen exploding popularity of conservative and non-traditional media sources. Now much of the news is being covered by people with alternative viewpoints who have broken away from traditional outlets and started media outlets of their own. In many cases, breaking stories are covered by independent, amateur bloggers.

Here is a request by Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan asking us to clear up the lie about his Bill he calls, the Path to Prosperity.  The lie being that "Republicans voted to end Medicare". You can read the Slate article by Dave Weigel here, and find links to Politifact where you can place your vote for 'the biggest lie of 2011'.
