Truman Won--Big Media Lost

Truman Won--Big Media Lost

The Comeback Kid – John McCain, Harry Truman, Barack Obama, Thomas Dewey

The American people are now paying attention and will vote their pocketbooks.

Expect record turnout of voters and long lines.

The big disappointment was the extent to which big media favored Barack Obama.

The staggering number and bias of the polls was used to manipulate and discourage voters that were Independents, undecided and those that were leaning towards McCain to not even bother to come out and vote.

Most ignored the polls and were motivated to show big media how wrong they were.

Independents were turned off by the arrogance of Barack Obama and his desire to share their wealth or income, instead of letting individuals and families keep their hard earned money.

Conservatives will vote for Palin and against Obama who they view as a radical socialist.

Libertarians did not like any of the candidates but voted for McCain over a radical socialist Marxist and decided not to waste their vote on Bob Barr. Many still wanted Ron Paul.

All voters were concerned about their jobs and found Obama proposed tax increases as a direct threat to their employers who would have to lay off employees as well as higher taxes resulting in higher prices for all goods and services. The price of bread, corn, milk and groceries in general and gasoline are still putting a dent in most people’s pocketbooks.

Obama also wants to increase you electricity bills with a new cap and trade tax. Over 50% of the electricity in the United States is coal generated and less than 1% is generated by solar or wind, so-called alternative energy.

So much for socialist planning under Barack Obama–the guy is a economy wrecker and job destroyer:

Sarah Palin Slams Obama for Wanting to “Bankrupt the Coal Industry”

Cost of Cap & Trade


Barack Obama wants to lose this election…


Alternative Energy Sources…


Obama will lose big time among Catholics and Evangelicals who found Obama’s views on abortion and same sex marriage totally unacceptable and beyong the pale. Obama appointing judges was also a big concern.

As much as they would like to punish big spending Republicans, family values are still important among the Republican base.

The American people again preferred a divided government.

Somebody needs to veto all the spending bills Congress will pass.

McCain will get 50% of the popular vote nationally.

Obama will get 48% of the popular vote nationally.

McCain will get 278 electorial votes.

Obama will get 260 electorial votes.

Congratulations to all who voted.

Voter turnout wil hit a new record of about 64%.

2012 will be a very interesting race for the Democrats who will need to move to the center and the Republicans who will need to move to their right to win.

Electoral College

The Electoral College consists of 538 popularly elected representatives who formally select the President and Vice President of the United States.[1] In 2008, it will make this selection on December 15. The Electoral College is an example of an indirect election.

Rather than directly voting for the President and Vice President, United States citizens cast votes for electors. Electors are technically free to vote for anyone eligible to be President, but in practice pledge to vote for specific candidates[2] and voters cast ballots for favored presidential and vice presidential candidates by voting for correspondingly pledged electors.[3] Most states allow voters to choose between statewide slates of electors pledged to vote for the presidential and vice presidential tickets of various parties; the ticket that receives the most votes statewide ‘wins’ all of the votes cast by electors from that state. U.S. presidential campaigns concentrate on winning the popular vote in a combination of states that choose a majority of the electors, rather than campaigning to win the most


Audio: Obama will bankrupt the coal industry

By Michelle Malkin 

Sundy morning buzz: Everyone’s sending me the audio clip now up on YouTube of Obama telling the San Francisco Chronicle he’ll make it impossible for new coal plants to be built. The interview took place in January. The YouTube user is NakedEmperorNews, who uploaded Obama’s redistribution of wealth interview.

Bankrupty: The change Obama thinks the coal industry deserves…” 


The truth serum in San Francisco

By Michelle Malkin 

“…This morning, I joked on Fox and Friends that San Francisco acts like a truth serum on Barack Obama. It’s where he trashed western Pennsylvanians as Bible-thumping racists clinging to their guns and religion. And it’s where he told the SF Chronicle that he plans to bankrupt coal companies and engineer huge energy price shocks to save the planet. (background links here and here)

Allah clipped the F&F video — watch here — and notes that Sarah Palin riffed on Obama’s San Francisco candor this morning:

“There must be something about San Francisco,” she said. “I heard on Fox News today, it’s like a truth serum where when he’s there, he seems to be more candid.”

It was at a San Francisco fundraiser earlier this year that Obama got into trouble, suggesting rural voters “cling to religion and guns” because jobs were being lost. Palin referred to them Monday as “bitter clingers” and “cling-ons.” (There goes the Star Trek vote?)

And it was Obama’s comments to the San Francisco Chronicle on fees for coal emissions that brought on Palin’s most recent attacks.

“So he’s talking to the San Francisco Chronicle, and he says that sure, if industry wants to try to build these coal-fired power plants, they can go ahead and try, but they’re only gonna be able to do it in a way that bankruptcies the whole industry, the coal industry,” she said. “Now he’s comfortable with this happening.” …”


Obama’s brags his ‘Cap and Trade’ plan will ‘bankrupt’ coal plant builders

Rick Moran

“Change we can freeze to death by:

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

These remarks were made by Obama on January 17 of this year. Not surprisingly this audio was hidden until now because the interview was with the far left San Francisco Chronicle. …”
