I’d like to take this opportunity to thank President Obama for doing two things better than perhaps anybody in the history of America.
He has 1) sold guns and 2) motivated conservatives better than anybody I imagine.
Have you noticed that he hasn’t said much about gun control since his extremist plan to disarm law abiding citizens and put us at the mercy of armed criminals was crushed in Congress?
That’s because every time he mentioned his gun control agenda, he sold guns and motivated conservatives. If they didn’t disagree with about 95% of his policies, gun store owners and gun manufacturers probably would have sent him a bunch of large commission checks for being their best salesman!
What he did tonight is more of the same.
The most radical of radical open borders Democrats are happy tonight. Those few who still trust MSNBC & their ilk will believe that he is pro-immigrant and pro-minority in spite of the damage his actions will inflict on legal immigrants and U.S. citizens of all races, particularly struggling working class families, minorities, and single mothers.
The rest of us now realize more than ever that “we the people” don’t need a “savior” in the White House who makes promises he can’t keep; who has a government solution for every problem; and whose every solution is to treat hard-working taxpayers like an unlimited ATM at the expense of our children who will pay tomorrow for the reckless spending of today.
“We the people” need “we the people” to wake up, return to the values and principles of our Founding Fathers, get informed and get involved, and restore integrity at every level of government.
More people realize that today compared to six years ago, and we have President Obama to thank for that.
Democrats learned from the 2000 presidential election, when Al “The Lorax” Gore won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College and consequently the White House to George “Dubya” Bush.
Democrats learned the lesson they should have learned, and charted a course for crushing Electoral College victories in ’08 & ’12.
President Obama only won 52.93% of the popular vote in ’08, but cruised to victory with a very blue Electoral College map and 67.8% of EC votes!
He won re-election in 2012 with an even slimmer 51.06% of the popular vote and a still strong 61.7% of the Electoral College votes.
Democrats could have lost the popular vote by a decent chunk and still won the White House in both Obama elections due to their understanding of the map and their success in states they needed to swing.
Will Republicans learn the same lesson that 2000 taught the Democrats about the importance of the Electoral College?
2014 was a crushing GOP victory, but so was 2010. We know what happened in 2012 when many Republicans thought we would take the White House like we took the people’s House two years prior.
Shame on us if we let that happen again in 2016, but if we don’t understand the EC map it likely will.

Liberals oppose agism, sexism, & racism… Unless it helps them win a Presidential election!
In ’08, the media had a 2 for 1 special, packaging agism & sexism together. John McCain was too old to be President & electing him would have put America a heartbeat away from the only thing worse than Old Man McCain in the Oval Office- President Palin!
Rather than celebrate the first woman since 1984* to be on the Presidential ticket of a major political party, the media assaulted Palin for, well, being a woman. Their biggest criticisms of Palin were that she was a mom & that the RNC spent a bunch of money on her campaign wardrobe.
Rather than do their job and fairly present both sides for America to make an informed decision, the media made ’08 out to be Messiah Obama vs the old man and the woman.
And, disagreeing with or opposing Obama was portrayed as racist, which is ironic, since in 2012…
The media torched Herman Cain.
Somehow, even bringing up the skeletons in Obama’s closet- like his known connections with America-haters Saul Alinsky, Frank Marshall Davis, & Bill Ayers- meant that you were a racist who only opposed Obama because he is half-black.
Yet going on a witch hunt to find skeletons in Herman Cain’s closet wasn’t racism, the liberal media was just doing their job!
If you look at what our liberal media does rather than what they say, they are champions of age, gender, & racial equality- unless you’re a conservative!
*an earlier version of this post wrongly said Palin was the first woman in history on the Presidential ticket of a major political party. Geraldine Ferraro was actually the first, as the VP on the Democrat ticket in 1984
