Show an average inner-city hoodlum, selling crack on the street, ask him which presidential candidate he likes better.
Which do you think he would choose?
Show a loser on his 50th week of unemployment with no intention of working anytime soon. Ask him which candidate he prefers.
Which do you think he would choose?
Show the tape of the woman in Cleveland, shrieking about how she got her Obama phone, so she's voting for him.
Show a montage of nitwitted Hollywood celebrities at their drunken parties, making outrageous and profane statements about anything traditional, American or Conservative.
Why would anyone want to be associated with trash like that? Are you a liberal? Are you one of those?
Show me a dumbass who doesn't know the free phone thing was done in the early 80'as & I'll you you another uninformed lying POS Republican voter.

And three other Americans, or don't they count? By the way, it was intelligence policies that Bush put in place that eventually found bin laden.

If that moron Obama wins I will go ahead and obtain citizenship outside of the U.S., move assets & keep the option of retiring outside of the U.S. so the Democrats do not get my tax dollars.
The Obamabots do not realize that wealth can leave, therefore the will end up canabalizing each other in the end. There will be no hope for them eventually, just like in Greece.
There is an abundance of expensive real estate in France now after they raised taxes on the wealthy. Lintards may get what they ask for, poverty.
Go or it.

We wouldn't want you anti_Americans here anyhow.

Wealth could always leave, dumbass. According to morons like you, they all would have left under Clinton.

Why didn't they?

Right Will Rage If Obama Wins
"The other thing that's going to happen is: unbelievable rage at Obama. We're going to see the rage of fanatics and spin keep ratcheting it up. The position has been -- and this is even by relatively establishment people like Peggy Noonan, George Will -- "He's an incompetent. Americans can't stand him. They think he's a nice guy but he's in over his head. This is an historic change to end this collectivist presidency." Because underlying so much of this, in my view, is race, they're going to be furious. They really felt they could knock him off easily. So when that fails, they're going to be very angry." -- Frank Rich

Talk about "rage"...

Maher warned Romney voters:

“If you’re thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you.”

"Obama Supporters Continue Threats To Riot, Assassinate Romney
Secret Service attention fails to dampen violent Twitter comments"

Despite the issue garnering a significant amount of media interest as well as the attention of the Secret Service, Obama supporters continued their threats to riot and assassinate Mitt Romney if Obama loses in the aftermath of last night’s presidential debate.

As we reported last week, Twitter has been flooded recently with violent comments from Obama supporters. The increase in volume of the comments seemed to coincide with Romney’s poll numbers edging higher against Obama.

Not only have Obama voters been making open threats that they will riot and cause mayhem, they have also been caught making direct threats to assassinate Mitt Romney, prompting the Secret Service to announce that it was “aware” of the threats and would “conduct appropriate follow up if necessary.”

Has the Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated the Romney Campaign?

Anti-Muslim activists on the Right have consistently warned that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama administration. But if their unhinged McCarthyism is to be believed, then Mitt Romney’s campaign has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood as well, as Romney’s campaign has named George Salem, Samah Norquist and David Ramadan “National Co-Chairs of Arab Americans for Romney.”

Pamela Geller labeled George Salem’s Arab American Institute a “nototrious anti-Israel Israel [sic] organization” composed of “Islamic supremacists” and led by a “Jew hater.” She even suggested that the AAI seeks “Jewish annihilation” by backing Mideast peace efforts.

Geller, Frank Gaffney, Robert Spencer, William Murray, Andrea and James Lafferty and others sent a letter to Edwin Meese demanding he withdraw his endorsement of Virginia Del. David Ramadan because of his purported ties to Muammar Gadaffi and “radical views,” including his support for the right to build the Park 51 Islamic Community Center. James Lafferty said Ramadan is an “extremist” who should not even “be allowed to continue to live in the United States,” and Geller said he is a “stealth jihadist” and a “Muslim Brotherhood plant.”

Perhaps no chair of Romney’s committee is despised more than Samah Norquist, wife of conservative leader Grover Norquist. Glenn Beck and Jerry Boykin have said that Norquist is a lackey for the Muslim Brotherhood and according to anti-Muslim activists like Gaffney and David Horowitz, Norquist secretly converted to Islam and joined the Muslim Brotherhood at the behest of his wife. Conservative attorney Cleta Mitchell wrote in a report for the American Conservative Union that she is “certain that Mr. Gaffney’s hatred [for Norquist] is further fueled by the fact that Grover is married to a Muslim-American woman (who also has worked for the United States government in very responsible positions, I might add!).”

Of course, these spurious claims against Ramadan, Norquist and Salem are just as baseless and wrong as their attacks against the Obama administration and the Muslim-Americans serving in it.

But while extremists like Geller, Gaffney, Horowitz and others are quick to attack Obama with such bogus charges, for some reason it seems unlikely Romney will receive similar treatment.

Stevie Wonder is playing a free "benefit" concert tomorrow night at Norfolk, Virginia's Scope Arena. To benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy? To benefit starving children in Africa? To raise awareness of climate change or breast cancer? No, the free concert is to promote the re-election of President Obama. Note that it's free (of course), but attendees must have tickets. Ticket locations include Pre-Owned Luxury Vehicle Sales, Inc. and the IBEW Local #1340 Lodge.

Many Republicans have been rather vocal about Michele Bachmann‘s claim that there may be some officials in the State Department with Muslim Brotherhood ties, but Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been quiet on the issue. When Romney was asked about that controversy, in addition to the national outcry over Chick-fil-A, Romney brushed them aside, commenting,“Those are not things that are part of my campaign.”

Howard Stern interviewed Obama supporters in Harlem. Not one person knew Osama bin Laden was dead. Some agreed that Obama is pro life and against gay marriage and thought Obama's running mate was Paul Ryan.
