Do you understand how the Presidential poll numbers do not seem to change because I’m a little flummoxed about that statistics? The presidential nominees have seemed to stay neck in neck since about July. Could it be that too many people who might change the needle protect their anonymity like a masked super-hero? Or could it be that some of the people who are making the numbers might love the attention and are answering these same polls over and over?
When my phone rings these days, thanks to Cox telephone, the caller ID is now plastered on my TV screen, and if I don’t know the caller, I’m not answering! Even if somehow the caller gets by my radar, as soon as the caller starts asking me questions, I hang up. I don’t believe I’m the only one not willing to listen to blathering poll-takers, so perhaps that’s why it seems that polls may be skewed? I’m not sure if I do not want to be put in anyone’s box, don’t want anyone to know my affiliation, just can’t be bothered listening to questions or don’t want Big Brother knowing my business, or all the above, but my feathers get ruffled when asked about anything political or poll related.
So this being said, who knows who’s really winning this run for Presidency presently? Do you think it’s really an honest approximation of reality? I sure hope not.
In my rosy colored world there is NO WAY it can be this close! Every person I talk to swears they are SO over Obama and are upset about the mess we and the country are in. I pray this is true. I do not believe, unless people are in denial, that they would want 4 more years of Obama and his hope and change still! Even if he does not want to fundamentally change the type of America we have today it is still fundamentally changing for the worse. We are in so much debt., unemployment is up, so many people are on welfare and food stamps, too many people are underemployed, businesses are failing at an alarming rate, yada, yada, yada.
Yes, things may not have been so rosy under President Bush, as the Democrats love to say but he’s long gone, things have only gone from bad to worse real fast since then. How long can Obama and his cronies blame Bush? Afterall, Romney isn’t Bush, he’s ROMNEY! Yes, they are from the same party, but so what? Also, Obama isn’t Clinton, they are just from the same party so no matter how much Obama and his cronies want to try to take credit for Clinton’s successes, Obama is Obama and he’s GOT TO GO! Even the Liberal magazine Newsweek has agreed, with the headline of “Why Barack Obama Needs to Go”.
I have a fabulous quote, I’d love to share from President Obama . . . “It’s not gonna be quick and it’s not gonna be easy to dig our way out of the hole we’re in!” (NO shit, Mr. President!) Well, usually you climb out of a hole….you don’t dig your way out of a hole…the hole just gets bigger and deeper if you keep digging. I know when I was a kid and we kept digging we used to say we were digging to China…obviously that’s where Obama is digging to! Just sayin’! That’s what is wrong with Obama’s thinking…more digging as in more spending to try to get out of trouble, that’s what they do in Washington all the time with our money when they tax us yet again, or borrow more from…wait for it — China! That’s why Obama and his party want to tax the top money earners again, because they need our money to pay for all the entitlement programs the poor feel justified to have, just like an addict or a gambler who won’t face the music and stop the bad habits. We really need to buckle down and accept that we might not be able to have everything like spoiled children, we need to cut back somewhere….perhaps we could stop giving aid to every country around the globe….like Afghanistan, perhaps, or maybe Pakistan who forgot where Bin Laden was hiding.
I like helping people as much as the next guy, but when some people are taxed 38%, it’s too much. Where will it end? A flat tax would be more fair. We all pay the same percentage of tax on purchases, why not on income?
I do not understand why people hate Romney because he is rich. Isn’t that the American dream? Do we not all secretly wish to become rich? Isn’t that why Lottery ticket sales go up astronomically when the jackpot is high? Why do these same people not hate George Clooney who just happens to be Obama’s biggest supporter and helps him raise millions at dinners. They are even said to have a “bromance” — Obama & Clooney, ha ha ha, move over Michele. If they hate Romney for being rich and hiding his money, why not hate Clooney who has a house in Italy and God knows what else?
PS. Obama is not a poor man. He will also be a very rich man after he leaves office. Every President makes a fortune in speaking deals, book deals, etc. after office. So people, politicians don’t necessarily do it out of the goodness of their hearts. Just so you know, Obama is not the saint you think he is. He can’t have it both ways, either he’s as bad as Romney or as good as Romney!
PSS. Where do you think Obama will put all his money after his term in Office when he makes his millions? Again, don’t fool yourself it will be invested out of the country, just like Romney, and he will pay the same % of taxes as Romney does. Also, he wouldn’t want to show you his tax records for years afterwards, because all the poor people would hate him if they could see how rich he became from all the love they showed him and yet the poor people are still poor!
FYI — Romney donated all the money he inherited from his Father to BYU (Brigham Young University) and remade this own fortune, so that might say something to people who might want to VOTE for someone who might be able to figure out how to jump-start a country’s economy! Let’s give the man a chance…we’ve already had 4 years of Obama and it hasn’t worked out so well. It’s Okay to change!
