Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Obviously your perception of "homeless" is that of people sleeping in parks begging for quarters to be spent on booze, drugs and so on and to be fair that probably is the "final" version of homelessness.

But homeless people might be living with friends or family until they can get back on their feet, women and children living in shelters to escape abusive husbands/fathers. Homeless has become an umbrella word to describe various human situations.

As we speak, there are perhaps a couple of hundred thousand "new" homeless folks in the areas affected by the superstorm and I for one wouldn't mind it if some of those folks head to Central Florida with their insurance/FEMA checks to take advantage of really cheap homes and rents left behind by our financial tragedy.

CBS is out with a new poll of the critical swing states Ohio, Florida, and Virginia. In each, Romney posts significant leads among Independent voters. In Virginia, Romney leads Obama by a massive 21 points among Independents. In OH and FL, he leads by 5-6 points. If this lead holds through election day, he will not lose these states, based on past elections.

Romney also has big leads among those most likely to vote. He wins seniors, the most dependable voting demographic, by 13 points in VA, 11 points in FL and 9 points in OH. Again, if these trends hold, Romney will sweep all three states, according to CBS.

Of course, since this poll was commissioned by CBS, they are downplaying these results. Instead, Quinnipiac University, who conducted the poll, oversampled Democrats by a ridiculous amount to show Obama with a 5 point lead in OH and tied in VA and FL. To get this result, Quinnipiac had to juice the poll to show Democrats with a bigger turnout advantage than they enjoyed in 2008.

What part of 'everyone I know who was homeless had one if not more of those'? I read somewhere a long time ago something about building your house upon the sand. It was suppose to be about how to build your character but I think now it may have a new meaning.

Nope. The bad news is thanks to liberal Democrats she was legally allowed to abort the fetus when it was six years old.

The good news is now there will be one less liberal Democrat.

I understand that in the right whiner world, it is OK to lie but not to use certain words.
Let's see what Saul Alinsky has to say about that....

Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals rule number 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that should be regarded as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.' Any target can always say, "Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?" When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these rational but distracting arguments.

and

"An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth -- truth to him is relative and changing." - Saul Alinsky

and let's just throw this in for the hell of it:

"Generally success or failure is a determinant of ethics."
(I love this last one. It defines the Democrats more than any other rule Saul Alinsky wrote.)

Obama is losing the youth vote he had in 2008.

They may not like Romney and will end up staying home.

On Friday, Obama appeared on MTV for “ASK OBAMA LIVE: An MTV Interview with the President” for one last push to win over the hearts of the generation that secured his victory in 2008.

The president had no fresh material, but it was clear he knows his campaign is hemorrhaging support from the more than 20 million 18- to 29-year-olds who’ll vote this year — votes he can’t afford to lose.

The president will milk every ounce of celebrity status he can, because he sure can’t run on his economic youth record or his broken promises.

America has shed 397,000 net youth jobs since Obama took office. The 4.7 million Americans under 30 now looking for work represent 40 percent of the unemployed population.

This president has the worst youth-unemployment record in postwar history. Youth unemployment has averaged 17.5 percent the last four years; no other presidency has come close to matching it.

On his watch, youth incomes have fallen 6 percent while costs for young people have skyrocketed.

In 2008, Obama said,“When I’m president, I will make college affordable for every American.” Instead, college tuition has risen 25 percent in the last four years and continues to climb.

Students have been forced to take out massive loans to pay for tuition increases. Under Obama, national student-loan debt has grown to more than $1 trillion; according to Young America’s Foundation’s Youth Misery Index, the average student graduates with $4,000 more in student loans than did those graduating when the president took office.

Other bills are up, too: Gasoline prices have more than doubled in the last four years, and food prices continue to rise.

The lack of job prospects and the rise in the cost of living have left young Americans economically miserable and wondering what happened to those 2008 promises of “hope” and “change.”

President Obama’s lofty rhetoric four years ago gave young Americans a renewed faith in government. We were told we’d be able to “tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless ... and our planet began to heal.”

Obama also said he’d “cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term” with “the most transparent administration ever.”

Four years later, health care is even more unaffordable, millions have dropped out of the workforce, the deficits have doubled and the president has hidden scandals while claiming “executive privilege.”

In one term, Obama has morphed from the “purple president” into a candidate whose ads have been 73 percent negative, compared to 36 percent for Romney. The optimism from 2008 has vanished.

Young Americans couldn’t be more disappointed, which is exactly why youth voter enthusiasm — young people who say they will “definitely vote”— has fallen 30 points since 2008, from 78 percent to 48 percent.

He promised to unify the country and give everyone a fair shot. Four years later, the president has failed to keep his promises, and young Americans have lost faith in the political system.

No matter how many times Katy Perry or Bruce Springsteen beg them, young Americans won’t (to steal a phrase from Obama) get “Obamnesia” and forget the last four miserable years. We haven’t gone “forward,” we haven’t seen positive “change” and we’ve lost “hope.” Slogans and celebrities won’t fool young voters again.
