….. and even that fawning media narrative is not going to be near enough to help them continue the farce. The Bloom Is Off The Ruse – The Electorate Is Awake, and the Democrats are circling the drain; with or without making up their mind on “God” and “Jerusalem”.
But to afford the benefit of the doubt to a reader who just clicked into the discussion, here is a general punditry example essentially reflective of the echo-chambering, yet irrelevant, media:
Yeah, I know this (video) is after day #1, but blah, blah, blah, the same water-carrying conversation happened last with the swooning just directed at “Bubba The Savior”. Whatever. Really, his BS is not worth my typing effort to deconstruct. Besides, someone else already did it.
I really do believe that people can see through this farce now.
The reality is there is no Hope and definitely NO CHANGE. Except for the TV ratings which reflect the exact sentiment being described right here.
[Michelle Obama] gave a strong performance day one, but, unfortunately for the Democrats, not many people saw it. Overall, the speech attracted around 11 million viewers on the three broadcast networks. That’s about 400,000 fewer viewers than watched Ann Romney’s speech. But, the really bad news for Obama is the massive drop in viewers from 2008.
NBC won the coverage, as it did for the RNC last week. But, its viewership was down 24% from ’08. For its RNC coverage on the first night, viewership was actually 8% higher than ’08. CBS and ABC have even starker declines, dropping 45% and 38% respectively, compared to ’08. Their coverage of the RNC was down also, but a more modest 25 and 38% from 08′.
Do the math: DNC loses 24% RNC gains 8% = a same network swing of 32% in favor of the Republicans.
You can obviously see the direction, and the pollsters are also sensing the decision is baked into this cake. We are just waiting for November 6th for the timer to go off and the final results (shellacking) to be witnessed.
I forced myself to watch 12 hours of liberal coverage for the DNC convention. The entire day one, and day two, sales pitch was not made to the “General Electorate”; No, it was obviously a passionate plea to their own left-wing base, which, unfortunately, also includes the legacy media cheerleaders.
But the messaging was angry, rhetorical, divisive and pandering, pandering, pandering to the audience within the auditorium, and, of course the orange finger-stained Cheeto eating sheeple dwelling in mom and dads basement, the Obamabots.
There was no uplifting messaging – no forward optimism and absolutely no reason to vote for Obama other than the threats of what the other guy might do wrong.
….Vote for Democrats, we might suck, but they’ll suck worse. Swear…..
Not exactly a Winning The Future strategy. As a matter of fact, I didn’t see a single policy message that even conveyed the campaign slogan “Forward”. Their version of “Forward” was to forewarn fearful nonsense about “killing kids with autism” and other such over-the-top rhetoric.
Perhaps they are saving the positive outlook for Chicago Jesus. But something tells me that nothing he can do or say is going to justify what people are actually witnessing in front of their face at the grocery store (inflation), at the gas pump (gas prices), and the diminished value of what few dollars they actually have in their wallets.
Metric phrases like: “Labor Participation Rate“, “Real Unemployment“, ”Adjusted For Inflation“, “Devaluation” and ”Unsustainable Deficit Spending” have become part of the well understood verbage of an engaged electorate - THAT WILL VOTE.
The 2008 ’Jersey Shore Watchers’ who do not comprehend such pesky conversations absent of the word “Kardashian” (particularly Obamabots) are not exactly thrilled up their legs while rushing to the polls this year.
The joy of holding hands with a Palestinian scarf- wearing Occupier semi-disappeared once they realized Mom and Dad were breaking into their trust fund to buy gas, Cheetos, and renew their membership in the i-need club.
Yeah, they’ll still call you racist for not admiring Chicago Jesus basketball skillz, or the hip-factor with Jay-Z/Beyonce’ chillin’ in the White House thing.
But when you explain the “situation room” is not the bedroom for the guy with sticky hair and a six-pack bod they quickly lose interest.
Be brutally honest and admit; for those who swooned in 2008, ’Afghanistan‘ is a type of dog or rug, and a “deficit” is what occurs when you stand to close to the speakers at a Lady Ga-Ga concert.
It is true what Andrew Breitbart said: ”politics are downstream from popular culture“, and, fortunately for our Republic, rock star Obama has dropped well off the charts – while the price for their Latte’ has necessarily skyrocketed at the same rate their trust funds’ have diminished.
