According to Rasmussen Reports, Mitt Romney is now ahead in eleven swing states, all of which were won by Obama in 2008. These include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
The Rasmussen survey also revealed that 46 percent of swing state voters are “certain” they will vote for Romney and will not change their minds, while 40 percent are certain they will vote for Obama.
This is good news for those who want the Duplicitous Despot booted out of the White House at any cost, but there is also reason for libertarians and constitutional conservatives to be discouraged as well: Four out of every ten Americans are prepared to support Obama to the bitter end! Who in the hell are these people?
Worse, a Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll found that Obama is still viewed as “more likeable, more eloquent and more empathetic” than Romney by wide margins.
Meaning that millions of Americans still have no idea that we have a Stalinist in our midst who is successfully carrying out the dreams of his father to bring America down to the level of Third World countries in Africa, Asia, and South America.
Please, let’s get real here. Obama is not likeable; he’s mean-spirited. Obama is not eloquent; sans his mainstream act, he talks with a thug dialect. Obama is not empathetic; he’s a classic narcissist who has no feelings for anyone but himself.
So even if MittMan wins in November, the polls show that 40-50 percent of Americans will remain in an intellectual coma and demand that artificial prosperity be revved up in America. And rest assured that Romney will not do anything major to reverse the winding down of America as an economic superpower.
However, as I have stated before, he will tinker around the edges enough to juice up the animal spirits of the nation’s entrepreneurs. And that, in turn, will bring more false prosperity to the restless natives who worship the God of Fun.
It’s a false prosperity that could last anywhere from one to four years, depending on myriad factors. But the national debt will continue to grow, the debt ceiling will continue to be raised, and there will be no serious attempt to cut back on entitlement programs.
That said … sure … by all means, let’s get rid of Commie Obammie. But only after that is accomplished will the real challenge begin, because the problem is not Obama. Obama is a symptom of the problem. To paraphrase Pogo, the problem is us.
