To maintream conservative americans, Obama is a joke.

SURPRISE: 7.8% Shock n Awe…what a joke. Got phone, but no job.

SEPT. EMPLOYMENT:+114,000...PURE FICTION…….Obama has beach front property in Iran he wants to sell you. Going back and manipulating the last three months unemployment numbers is how this came about. You can't get to 7.8% with only 114,000 jobs added.

Trusting political dynasties like the Kennedys and the Clintons is like trusting Joe Isuzu or anyone French.

Az. voters just dissed a Quayle in a cong. primary.

He switched districts because of adding cong. seats and lost even with the backing of the state GOP big boys.

He was the first 2010 Cong. pol. to be ousted.

I sure don't trust teleprompters anymore. They made an empty suit like Obama the president. It's a little unnerving.

Let's add Gore and Cuomo.

Can't believe a democrat REFUSED to say the pledge at a meeting saying it was a 'prayer'.

That's the Obama mentality.

7 Election: 7-Eleven Coffee Poll Goes Overwhelmingly For Obama

The Huffington Post | By Alice Hines Posted: 10/03/2012 4:10 pm EDT Updated: 10/03/2012 4:57 pm

Mitt Romney should take a big gulp -- 7-Eleven shoppers have already decided on President Obama.

According to 7-Eleven's "7-Election" poll, which allows coffee drinkers to pick a blue cup for Obama or a red one for Romney, Obama is leading with 60 percent of "votes." Romney currently has 40 percent.

President Obama has held the lead since the first day the poll opened on September 6, said Margaret Chabris, a 7-Eleven spokeswoman. That day, Obama received 57.2 percent of cups, compared to Romney's 42.8 percent.

Though the poll calls itself "unabashedly unscientific," it has never been wrong in its three-election history. Six million cups were cast for candidates in each of the past polls, according to a press release.(In contrast, the sample size for a typical Gallup poll is 1,000 adults.)

7-Eleven, the world's largest retailer by number of stores, has managed to expand successfully to 16 countries by cleverly harvesting sales data in real time and adjusting each store's assortment to local tastes. The same technology allows the chain to track purchases of red and blue cups and report the data to its website the same day.

In the Philippines, where 7-Eleven has roughly 750 stores, the company also polled shoppers with soda cups printed with pictures of the country's nine presidential candidates in 2010. The poll correctly predicted that Benigno Aquino III would win the election. Originally founded in Dallas, 7-Eleven is now based in Japan, where its official name is Seven & I Holdings.

Of course, the poll is also good marketing for 7-Eleven. In 2004, hot beverage sales grew by 6.5 percent per store per day during the second U.S. "7-Election," Jim Keyes, 7-Eleven's then-president and CEO said in a call with analysts.

When the Unemployment Rate drops BECAUSE PEOPLE LEFT THE WORK FORCE, there's still a huge Problem. These people have given up Hope you dope. When the New President comes into office, they'll come storming back looking for a job. Right now these people believe it's hopeless with idiot Obama.

I'm on your side. I'm just a bit afraid that Obammy was baiting Bishop Rmoney, allowing him to talk too much. Bishop Rmoney ended up saying more lies than were necessary. There's blowback as a result. Obammy lost the battle, but seems to be winning the war.

More Problems with the Gov Jobs report:

Manufacturing has lost 600,000 jobs since Obama took office and many of the jobs the economy added last month were PART TIME seasonal which means they'll be laid off in January at best, next month at worst.

The number of people with part-time jobs who wanted full-time work rose 7.5 percent to 8.6 million, the most since February 2009.

Mitt Romney pointed out that Wages GO DOWN in an Obama economy and now you see why. Part Time Work is all that's happening. It's a National Disgrace just like Obama.
