The Real Reason Obama Got Elected

Here’s an interesting plot twister; Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out, that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out. That is, that they’d vote Obama out of office and try to find someone who could solve the jobs problem in this country.

Turns out, the opposite has happened. Voters in high-unemployment states actually like the president, and the reason is obvious; the Federal Government is paying the jobless, extending unemployment benefits, food stamps, and even underwriting disability payments from Social Security.

Think we’re different from the Europeans? Think again. The proportion of Greek men in their 30’s that are working is higher than the proportion of men who work in the United States. That’s what this election was all about. People voted for free stuff, free money, and free benefits. A chicken and health care in every pot.

It’s not just the people who lost money in the recession who are hooked on government money. The total number of people getting government money are rising. In fact, most of what you suspect about entitlements may be wrong. If you think the proportion of people getting government benefits has been stable over time, think again. In 1983, less than 30% of us got help. Today, it’s 49%.

If you think Democrats alone are responsible for entitlement spending, you’d be mistaken. In the last half- century, entitlement spending has grown faster under Republican presidents than Democratic ones.

Think transfers are a small part of the Federal Government’s budget? Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Until 1960, government transfers were less than a third of the budget. Today, it’s two-thirds of federal spending. That leaves just one out of every three dollars for things like defense spending.

So here’s where we are; nearly 200 years after Francis Scott Key penned the national anthem and immortalized the phrase,“Land of the Free.” We’ve become just that, but not in the way we quite expected.

We’re the land of the free because an increasing number of us are getting a free ride. That, my friends, is not the American way.

Obama got the same percentage of black votes in 08.

Women made the real difference and got Obama re-elected.

Republicans can't figure out that America is not a bunch of white males anymore.

No it wasnt women. It was the brand new voters and illegals he gave amnesty to for their votes just in time. It was more first time voters and most were African Americans in high unemployment areas..Like Philly..lol..the other thread we were on..You have a habit of changing the subject on one thread to the same subject we were talking about on another thread..lol..But I don't really post to chat with you as much as I post for other peoples information. Most people believe the lies they hear because they don't actually watch the real news sites. You help. Thanks.

I enjoy your circular reasoning. I post links they are no good.I don't post links I made it all up. Funny $hit sniper.

Problem for you is other people read both.

Your like fox news, people stop believing fox news when Romney got his a$$ beat and it's the same with you.Fox news lost a bunch of viewers too.

http://www.politicususa.com/fox-news-obama-vi...

The ratings for election Fox News election night coverage show that the right is still far from putting America first. From the 11 PM-12 AM hour Fox News had 10.1 million total viewers. After the election was called for President Obama, only 4.4 million viewers stuck around to watch Romney’s concession speech. By the time President Obama delivered his acceptance speech, only 2.2 million Fox News viewers watched.

And still you cant get over that FOX knews is the only one telling you dummies the truth by posting honest articles from Experts while you cant dig up anything but Krap..

And still FOX is the highest rated news channel/site in the world. Its just dummies like you that believe everything the other channels say about it with all their edited FOX comments. You have nothing but yourselves to blame. Stop blaming fox for your problems and prove you made the right decision to elect your leader.You spend more time bashing a news channel than posting anything about your leader. Its all you do..

Post obummblers daily achievements..so we can tear them apart..I mean give our respectable opinions.

Post some positive crap about your leader and dont spend so much time worrying about what others post.

I post for others to read..I could give a Krap if you approve or not.

I had turned my computer off and went to bed.Laying there thinking about that 6 word post I made.

I apologize, It was made in hast and wrong.

I'll try again.

If you could go back in time 5 years.Where you happen to meet me at some river fishing when a summer downpour causes us both to seek shelter and strike up a political conversation you and I would agree on everything. I'm serious, honest engine I swear we would.What I am trying to say is

" I still have hope for you!!!"

Goodnight

Survey: NPR's listeners best-informed, Fox viewers worst-informed
People who watch no news at all can answer more questions about international current events than people who watch cable news, a survey by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind finds.

Scientists: Climate bias at Fox, WSJ ‘far exceeded’ rest of media

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has just published a study criticizing Fox News Channel and the Wall Street Journal’s opinion section for misleading coverage of the climate change issue. Jumping straight to the key findings:

• Over a recent six-month period, 93 percent of Fox News Channel’s representations of climate science were misleading (37 out of 40 instances).
• Similarly, over the past year, 81 percent of the representations of climate science in the Wall Street Journal’s opinion section were misleading (39 out of 48 instances).
Sounds damning, but what about the rest of the media? Do we have to focus exclusively on Fox News and the opinion section of the Wall Street Journal?

Absolutely, says Brenda Ekwurzel, a climate scientist at UCS who participated in the study. Fox News and the Wall Street Journal’s opinion content, says Ekwurzel, have compiled a “history of bias and misleading information about the basic knowledge that climate change is real and that humans are responsible” that “far exceeded all the other major news outlets that have been analyzed.” Says who?

Says the study’s Appendix B, responds Ekwurzel, citing studies that have tweaked Fox and the Wall Street Journal on this front.

Isn't this about the 18th excuse for Mitt losing? The real reason he lost is he was a bad choice for the GOP from the start. Get over it and stop crying like a little girl that just had her pony tail pulled.
