The Return of the Friday Follies for February 8, 2013

I was in the shower this morning listening to my local conservative talk radio. They were discussing the Super Bowl ad  narrated by Paul Harvey about farmers. Following the discussion, the show mentioned a new version was available. This one however, was, “God Made a Liberal.”

 Heh, heh.


I’ve said that I’m a poll watcher. I spent a lot of time before the election examining polls—tearing them apart, looking at the demographics, the questions, the lib vs. conservative sampling ratios. I didn’t guess the election outcome better than anyone else although I wasn’t nearly as  confident as many of my peers.

I still examine polls. A get a newsletter from Rasmussen daily and one of his items is Obama’s daily tracking poll.  Since the election it has be hovering around the 55% approval.  Yesterday it dropped to 51%.  At the time of this writing, I haven’t received my daily email from Rasmussen but I did find this one, the Quinnipiac poll. It has Obama’s approval dropping below 50%. His approval rating now is the same as it was last April, 46%.

TREND: Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President? (*High also 59% Mar 2009)

                                                             High    Low

Apparently, the higher tax rates (that Obama declared would only affect the rich,) the stagnant stock market )that Obama declared was better than ever,) the continuing increase in the cost of living—food, housing, utilities and gas (that the Obama administration has ignored,) is having a great negative impact to Obama voters. Amazing! All the predictions issued by the Right is coming to pass.

We told you so!


Most conservatives believed and continue to believe that Obama’s winning election strategy was based on voter fraud. We believe his success was aided, if not accomplished, through fraudulent votes. The dems claim otherwise but items like the one below continue to appear. Items that support our suspicions.

The Voter Fraud That ‘Never Happens’ Keeps Coming Back

By John Fund, February 8, 2013 9:51 A.M.

Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: “A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.”

Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

When you read further, you’ll see the dems are desparately trying to excuse the woman’s behavior. As a poll watcher, she could volunteer to observe the count of the absentee ballots. Instead, she choose to add just add another democrat vote and committed a crime.

She’ll probably get off with a hand-slap at most. She should be doing some time behind bars with a hefty fine—pour encourager les autres or “to encourage others” to not engage if further vote fraud.
