Why Americans Are Tuned Out From This Year’s Gutter Politics

Published by at 11:33 am under All General Discussions

The final stretch of summer 2012 is here and as the August heat and humanity begin to simmer DC, the stench of our bloated and incompetent federal bureaucracy is also beginning to intensify. Specifically the desperation of the Democrats as they realize their dismal failures are going to actually come back to haunt them.

Stink Bomb 1 is a man blaming Romney for his wife’s death years after Romney left Bain, years after she left her job and gave up her health care, and just shows how dumb liberals view Main Street America. Today team Obama admits they knew all about this Goebbels-like propaganda stunt.

This is why America is preparing to neuter DC and put our future back in the hands of every day Americans. If this is leadership at $1.3 trillion a year in DEFICITS, I can see one quick way out of financial mess. Stop letting idiots waste our tax money. Just shut down 50% of the government and leave what is necessary – military, parks, health and safety monitoring, judicial process and maybe a few other small advisory (no teeth) roles.

Stink Bomb 2 is a juvenile attack on Rep Allan West – an officer and likely gentleman.

Stink Bomb 3 is a stupid comment from one of DC’s most stupid and over paid people.

The laugher of the day comes from Chris rock, who wonders why he and the left have to dive into the gutter:

“I wish we didn’t have to stoop to this level. I wish they made it like a real fight. I mean, we’re watching the Olympics right now and everything is fair,” the comedian said

Dude, the disaster that is the result of Democrat leadership is being fairly assessed and roundly rejected. The votes are coming in November. It will be fair – and brutal.

So, what to make of all the August polls showing a bounce for Obama and a sinking Romney?

Realize that the angry, insurgent voters from 2010 have made up their mind and tuned out DC, the media and politics. They are fed up and done listening.  Every year the GOP loses ground in August as working people take vacation and drop off the pollster’s radar. But this year the radar has been even less accurate due to the fact the Tea Party voters don’t let their presence be known until a few weeks before the election event. This happened in Wisconsin and other places all year long. Pollsters did not see the wave until it was on top of them.

It happened in Massachusetts with Scott Brown, who came out of nowhere. And it will happen this year. People are so fed up with the whole thing they will show up only to make sure it gets dismantled as soon as possible.

In the words of Ronald Reagan: “America tear down this bloated disaster called the federal Government!”

    Two more weeks before the RNC. As soon as Romney accepts his nomination (in spite of the Ron Paul delegates), his campaign team will be allowed to use the campaign money to generate TV ads to reveal the real Obama. I understand that the Team Romney spent money to vet Obama and plans to unleash their findings.

    One reason why Obama now polls ahead of Romney is because Romney cannot use the campaign money yet.

    But Romney is going to have to utilize another method of campaigning, in addition to defense responses to Obama’s attack ads and comments. Romney needs to go offensive and present a positive approach to explain his ideas.

    Problem with explaining free market economic ideas is that most people do not understand what “less government intervention” mean. They want regulation but don’t understand that over-regulation damages the private sector. Just one example.

    Incidentally, anyone believe these polls when Obama is ahead? The only polls that I believe are those that poll Romney ahead. It has nothing to do with bias but rather that it matchs the silent American majority’s feelings towards Obama. Remember the polls of the Wisconsin recall elections for Scott Walker? How those polls were showing that Scott will lose big time? Instead, Scott won big time.

    Remember how Carter was polling way ahead of Ronald Reagan until the last week after 3 debates showing Ronald finally pulling ahead and win by a landslide?

    Paul Rahe believes that Romney will win by a landslide. I think so, too and can only hope so. It has to be a very large margin to prevent the Democrats from filing lawsuits ‘a la Franken mode.

    I chose to remain neutral and unsurprised to Obama’s actions in year 2010 and 2011. Until the last few weeks when Obama hit the low, then the lowest, then the next lowest. I don’t think we will yet see the lowest. Sarah Palin is right that we just haven’t see it all…things will get worse in the next few weeks.

    I hate to keep going here… but……

    HL Mencken: “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the american people.”

    PT Barnum: “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

    I’m worried that we’ve passed the tipping point, that there are too many who want to suckle at the teet of the Government; that there are too many who’ve been taught in school and been brought up to believe that Government is a giant benevolent entity only looking to do good; that there are too many who are just lazy and without ambition and willing to accept a life of mediocrity.

    Romney not only has to paint the picture of how bad Obama is – he needs to go after the why – the ideology (see Krauthammer) He also needs to educate the public on conservative values as he paints the picture of his positive agenda.

    Only with this three pronged approach does he stand a chance.

    If any of the pollsters call me I am going to say I am voting for Obama to scare the living daylights out of the American people. Maybe if people think Obama is a shoo in they will get out in force and vote against him.
