The following article in no way makes light of the tragic situation people find themselves in due to hurricane Sandy. The loss of life and property is horrible. For the loved ones I have in the effected areas, I wish you all the best.
Our beloved president may have been spared the humiliation of being thrown overboard by the liberal progressive commie establishment.
Hurricane Sandy, created of course, by the republican’s secret weather machine, may have inadvertently saved Barack Hussein Obama.
See, liberal ideas or policies can never be to blame for any election loss. I’m certain the liberal powers-that-be were all set to toss King Barack off his throne and under the proverbial bus. It was his fault, not liberal ideas. He just didn’t or couldn’t get the great collective message out. Heck, he only had four years.
No man (or god) will be allowed to shake the foundation of liberalism, not even the “Anointed One”.
But now hurricane Sandy has possibly bailed out Barack.
Alex Guillen of Politico floated the trial balloon this past Monday, of the possibility of postponing the election, despite it never being done before.
Not for any previous natural disaster. Not even for any war including the Civil War, in which, in 1864, President Abraham Lincoln acknowledged that the scheduled elections, “added not a little to the strain” of the ongoing struggle, but postponement was not an option. “We cannot have free government without elections; and if the rebellion could force us to forego or postpone a national election, it might fairly claim to have already conquered and ruined us.” Lincoln further noted that keeping to schedule “demonstrated that a people’s government can sustain a national election, in the midst of a great civil war. Until now it has not been known to the world that this was a possibility.”
That same day (Oct. 29), the White House cheer squad (press corps) asked Obama spokes boy, Jay Carney, “Jay, some of the utilities are saying that the power is going to be out in some areas for up to ten days. That would obviously include Election Day. Is there any contingency planning to alter the Election Day schedule because of this?”
The mainstream will, of course, do whatever it can to secure victory for their man.
On it’s face, this strategy makes no sense. It is completely illogical, but when it comes to the thinking of the left, logic has no place.
What possible gain could be had by postponing an election where only a few states, 2 in particular, were drastically effected? Those two states being New Jersey and New York, which Obama will win anyway.
But this is not the strategy at all. The democrat operatives in Washington no full well that the election will not postponed or changed in any way.
I’m betting, through internal polling and other sources, the liberal elites know Obama will most likely lose this election and may lose big.
Rather than accept the failure of policy, they must somehow create a situation on which to blame the loss.
Much as the liberals did 2000, they must also form a narrative of the election being stolen.
I’m quite sure they don’t favor throwing Obama under the bus, but if it must be done to save liberal ideology, so be it.
It will be much easier to now blame, at least partially, the election loss on the storm.
Several national polls have just been released showing Obama now winning key battleground states, such as Ohio. Never mind the polls are crap, but they still show Obama ahead.
Obama has suspended his campaign for a few days to actually play president. First time for everything, I know. He’s not really doing anything, but it has that appearance, none the less.
Those on the left, including all the mainstream press, will cry foul, that he, the president had to attend to the business of running the country, while that scum, Mitt Romney doesn’t have to concern himself with such things and can just campaign to his heart’s content, giving Romney the decided advantage. This, among other things, caused Obama to lose.
There will also be the predictable cry of cheating republicans, voters disenfranchised and discrimination due to new voter I.D. laws. The international observers will raise objection to something and lawsuits will follow.
One way or another, Romney will be said to be illegitimate; selected not elected. Sound familiar?
The only way to prevent most of this from occurring is a Romney landslide victory. We will never eradicate all the malfeasance of the left, but a clear and concise victory will quell most of the whining.
And as uncharitable as it may sound (and it is), it would please me greatly to see Obama get tossed in the trash heap of history by those same sycophants who have been fawning over him for years.
