Post-Election Thoughts

2012 May 9
by bc3b

While yesterday’s primaries did not receive the media coverage of the earlier primaries, it was one of the most important primary nights of the season for a number of reasons:

  1. Richard Mourdock’s defeat (a$$ kicking) of Richard Lugar – not just the fact that he “primaried” a 36-year member of the Senate, but the margin of victory – 22 points. Contrary to popular belief (among liberals) , the Tea Party’s demise appears to have been greatly exaggerated. Most upset are liberal members of the media and Democrats who praised Lugar for his bi-partisanship (although they would never do anything bi-partisan themselves. Could Mourdock’s win affect Romney’s VP choice?
  2. The vote banning gay marriage in North Carolina. The Democrats will be holding their convention in a state that: 1) voted to ban gay marriage, 2) has right to work laws and 3) is the state in which our Mullet resides.
  3. Barack Obama’s incredibly bad month of May continues. Joe Biden isn’t just sticking his foot in his mouth. He’s chewing it off. He launched his campaign to a half-filled arena at Ohio State. Yesterday about 20% of Virginians voted for “some other candidate” and in West Virginia a Texas inmate  received 40% of the vote. This comes from the British press because the U.S. media is doing its best to not report it.
  4. Scott Walker out-polled all the Democrats in Wisconsin. Not a good sign for public employee unions.

What are your thoughts?

Popular prisoner: Inmate Keith Judd (pictured left) who is serving time at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas, received around 40% of votes in West Virginia's primary, coming a close second to President Obama

Keith Judd #11593-051. Our next President?

    I’d love for that guy to come out and say something like “For the first time in my life, I am proud of West Virginia”. Would be the best. day. ever.

    Imagine if an incarcerated felon received 40% of the vote against Mitt Romney or any Republican. It would be front-page news on every paper and the lead story on network news.

    The MASSIVE rejection by North Carolina voters of Gay Marriage, when Obama is doing his “wink wink” to the LGBTXYZ community is very telling…and bodes ill for Obama in NC and beyond.

    And the hypocrisy of OBama in doing this, um, “wide stance” is being glossed over by the media. Everyone ASSUMES Obama is lying. Great.

    The thing I liked best was that (according to Rush) Scott Walker got more votes in Wi than the top two Dems combined! And he was unopposed (in other words, no real reason for Rs to show up). Woohoo!

    Still sending one more donation to Walker though, must win.

    Take away from yesterday’s primaries

    1) I wish the NC marriage amendment was on general election ballot (look at California in 2008 and Ohio 2004), but the silver lining is that the majority of Americans still believe marriage should be defined as between man & woman. Social issues are behavior issues and should be state issues.

    2) For the sake of sanity and fiscal health, will the people of Wisconsin build cheese walls around Madison and Milwaukee and demand liberals need passports to travel outside their boundaries to mix with critical thinking people?

    3) When you select an idiot to stand next to you in order to look good in comparison (see fat, ugly girlfriend or wingman syndrome) eventually that stupid, ugly, fat veep, girlfriend, wingman will expose you for the shallow manipulative soulless zero you are.

    4) Murdock was on Levin Monday night. He said pre-debate they were polling close to even but following debate 1% of Murdock voters flipped to Lugar but 12% of Lugar voters flipped to Murdock. The media can portray the tea party supported candidates as mouth breathing neanderthals but when the voters actually meet the candidate the media continues to expose their bias liberal asses. … For Murdock to end up with that margin shows a building tide of people who have had enough. (I’m praying for a tsunami)

    “but the silver lining is that the majority of Americans still believe marriage should be defined as between man & woman”

    The MSM are working their polling (as we speak) to show exactly the opposite of that.

    Which is why, Eph, I think BC’s #3 in the post is so significant. You can’t spin away that WV vote as nothing other than a protest vote against the president.

    Probably the closest I will see in my lifetime to the implementation of ‘no confidence’ on the ballot.

    Eph..MSM polling stopped being about gauging voter sentiment a long time ago, now it’s all about generating it. And yup, they are going to generate all they can on the Gay Marriage front

    Why does the kenyan fraud care about coming out of the gay marriage closet, the minority voters will still support him anyway??
    I see no voting block that will be swayed either way. Those opposed to gay marriage would never vote for him anyway.

    By the way the WV inmate receives 1 delegate to the Dim convention. I might watch their convention just to see his loner votes.

    I just saw on another site that FNC says that Obama will be shortly making a statement on gay marriage.

    I think Zippy is struggling as he is watching his world crumble around him and Slo Joe Biden has a jackhammer in his hands. Just remember: Sarah Palin is the dumb not Joe Biden, not Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, but Sarah Palin.

    24. Is that Miss Ukraine 2012??

    The 2011 version is better than the 2012 version. But then again, can 2011 ever be topped??

    “I just saw on another site that FNC says that Obama will be shortly making a statement on gay marriage.”

    Let’s hope he now says he is for pickle marriage.

    The ultimate “John Kerry-ish” flip flop handed to Mittens

    Even before I looked I knew you’d be disappointed. Olesia Stefanko is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen.
