How a Sophomoric Leftist With Terrorist Friends and No Serious Credentials Could Get Elected President

Watch and weep:

Their votes counted as much as yours.

The interviews above are backed up by a multiple-choice Zogby poll. Some of the results, via How Obama Got Elected:

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing).
81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing).
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing).
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing).
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes.
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter.

It's not that average voters don't know anything. They know what the liberal elite establishment wants them to know — and nothing more.

Obama didn't win the election; the media won it for him.

this is why liberals are so dangerous...turns out the whole time, those media elite were only pushing for Bush and his wars to get this guy elected!

i wonder how many people voting for bush were under the impression he actually went to vietnam, while kerry didn't?

Yeah, but we WON and we're going to turn this country UPSIDE DOWN and torment the holy crap out of you conservative slugs.

So since your party FAILED, ,move the F out of the wy and let someone lead. All your guys did was create an economic collapse.

What is wrong with you people? Do you just oppose anyone who isn't in your filthy, stinking tribe of conservatism? You haven't even given Obama 5 minutes in office. You oppose out of blind ignorance. You opposed McCain until you had no other choice. I listen to rush. He HATED McCain for being too moderate.

How do you people face the day? What keeps you going? Is it just the greed? Or is it the fear? Were you bornr fascists?

Posted by: Dino at November 17, 2008 10:38 PM

And another thing: Obama got the votes of the educated. That's how he won. He campaigned in small towns that hadn't elected a democrat in years by concentrating on those that had a college in them. The smart, academic people voted for him, the dumb townies for the old albino.

Are you saying that the racists who voted republican are the intelligent ones? No wonder you people can't win elections anymore.

Posted by: Dino at November 17, 2008 10:40 PM

Dipshit-dino; how can you defend this crap? Cuz you are a typical dipshit? Rather than calling the messenger names - defend the people who elected your little empty zero. Tell us how smart your fellow dipshits are, dipshit. “Because they FEEEEEEL they are right?”

My God - you ARE an idiot. Only a complete unabashed lunatic would try to rationalize what is on this video clip.

Roll in your crap and smell yourself, dumbass.

Fellow posters; this girl is as stupid as Fred Flintstone's dog. Feel free to call a fool a fool (it's the right thing to do) but don't try to debate her. Only a fool debates a fool.

Posted by: Jimbo at November 17, 2008 10:50 PM

Uh, dino....I'm sure some of those questioned in the video have college experience. Also, college degrees don't mean shit if you can't apply the knowledge into real world appliciations.

Obama, our first Affirmative Action President-Elect.

Not qualified, and voted in by a slim margin of uneducated people who, many of which, only voted because of being "cool" to vote for the Affirmative Action candidate.

Actually, he did not win by a landslide. He mostly won because the Republican base did not turn out for McCain.

He won by the same spread that CA Gays lost on Prop 8, and I don't hear any CA Gays calling the loss on Prop 8 a "landslide".

Too bad the same undecuated Dummycrat voters that voted for Obama in CA also voted strongly against the Gay Agenda.

Now Dino, are they educated or uneducated by your definition?

You can't have it both ways.

Thnks for the h/t How can anyone in their right mind defend this. It is a total disgrace to all if us. We have the most ignorant voters. And it is not just one side, but the Left and Democrats prey on people that do not know anything about what is going on. This is the Democrats prime targets to fool to get elected.

Posted by: Stix at November 17, 2008 11:40 PM

Hey Dino,

I bet you were one of those idiot clones like on that clip and that's why you are mad. Oh another thing, Don't worry it's better to have the Democrats deal with the economic crap and let your little messiah fall flat on his face. It will make way for the Republicans to look good and have our girl Palin get in the White House. I relish the thought of all you Obama freaks crying when the eurphoria wears thin and you guys come back to planet Earth. Make way commies because we will whooping some ass to get our country back!!!!!!:);):D

Mike - we must allow them to make idiots of themselves for "the record".

"The Dipshit Records" will outlive you and I; they will serve future humanity as examples of the complete idiocy responsible for destroying civilized thought. Dino, (Fred Flintstone's dog), is a prime example of "non-think". It may be better described as "Lemming-think": Suicidal dipshitness.

Yeah, Obama is gonna fail and then Palin will be elected. Yep, that's the ticket!

Democrats will deal with the "economic crap" and wipe the floor with republicans in the process. No wonder your side failed so badly and mismanaged the economy into a Depression. You people don't get it. It's just "economic crap" to you. Your tiny liitle brains can only comprehend small, petty ideas- materialism, greed, MONEY MONEY MONEY. You're like savages.

fannie and freddie were a large mistake, but what should have been the bursting of a housing bubble with a few errant economic ripples was turned into a full-blown financial crisis by the credit-default insanity on wall street, that never would have existed if it weren't for republican-backed legislation to overturn laws that were created during the depression.

of course, clinton had to sign off on it. there's two sides to every story. as with most things in life, the only one we can blame is God and whatever that plan of his is for us.

Oooooooooooooooops, more hands in the cookiejar.


Obama Advisor - Lobbyist Who Undermined Fannie Oversight


Another day, another report of a Obama transition team member who just happens to have played a big part in the Fannie/Freddie fiasco:


One of Obama’s top transition team members, Thomas Donilon, oversaw an aggressive, backdoor lobbying campaign by mortgage giant Fannie Mae to undermine the credibility of a probe into the firm’s accounting irregularities, according to a 2006 government report on the company.


The effort — which reportedly included attacks on the funding for the oversight agency, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, and an attempt to launch a separate investigation into OFHEO itself — was ultimately unsuccessful, and regulators eventually discovered top Fannie Mae executives had been manipulating the company’s financial reporting to maximize their bonuses.

Obama transition advisor and ex-Fannie Mae executive Donilon has not been accused of participating in the accounting irregularities. But he did oversee its lobbying, and helped paint a rosy picture of Fannie’s financial health to the company’s board, OFHEO investigators concluded, a picture that was ultimately proven false.


Donilon declined to comment for this article.


President-elect Obama has pledged to change the culture of coziness between officials, lobbyists and lawmakers in Washington. But the role of Donilon in the Fannie Mae scandal raises questions about just how much of a break the Obama administration will be from business as usual inside the Beltway.


How much of a break from business as usual? Absolutely none. It was all talk, and the masses brought it hook, line and sinker for the most part because the media never did it’s job in vetting this Socialist.


Quite curious how the MSM has finally decided to do some digging isn’t it? They even asked the Obama team about this lobbyist and their answer will remind you of the Jim Johnson story. Basically saying the guy is a volunteer….what are they supposed to do with a volunteer? Recall:


“I am not vetting my VP search committee for their mortgages. …These aren’t folks who are working for me. They’re not people who I have assigned to a particular job in a future administration,”


And today’s excuse:


“Mr. Donilon is volunteering his time and more than 30 years of accomplishment to help prepare the State Department for an efficient transition to the President-elect, who is taking office at a time of war and when we are confronting a complex and challenging international environment. Mr. Donilon’s experience in foreign affairs as Assistant Secretary of State and Chief of Staff at the State Department is critical to this review process.”


Anyone get the feeling that this is like a puppet in which the string pullers are now calling in all their markers for the job they did for him?

Interesting, the Obama propaganda arm is as effective as Vladmir KGB Putin's. Both American and Russian media are now primarily used to deceive the public.

Posted by: V the K at November 18, 2008 5:24 AM

First they went after the children in our schools - after 40 years the results are clear based on the election results. Then over the last 20 years they took control of the media. Thats basically all you need to control the country.

As Orwell said, "He who controls the present controls the past, he who controls the past controls the future."

Compare history books of today with those of 50 years ago if you think Im exaggerating.

Dino the dufus is right about one thing - the Demoncrats are going to turn the country upside down - like Mussolini. America will end up like Italy - a mess.

Forrest Gump sez;

I don't know much about nuthin, 'cept for shrimp.

I voted for Barack Obama because that nice lady Miss Oprah said I should, if I was hopin' for some change.

She said that Barack Obama would allow Embryonic Stem Cell research that would let Lt. Dan grow his legs back.

You know that Embryonic stuff, I think they do it on chicken embryoes, then they cut them apart to get that genetic stuff to put in the body.

I can't wait for Lt. Dan's new legs, 'cept if they is grown from cut up chicken embryoes, they might look kinda funny. But I don't think he will mind cause he won't have to walk around no more with them crutches.

Posted by: on-the-rocks at November 18, 2008 6:09 AM

The actual Orwell quote is ","Who controls the past, controls the future; who controls the present, controls the past."

In any case Obama is an empty vessel into which millions have poured their hopes and dreams.

Obama's only chance of any success is for him to break 80% of his campaign promises and act like Clinton in his 2nd term - who was actually more of a conservative than Bush was in his 2nd term. The odds of this arent good considering the radical left controls Congress.

Unlike the Democrats, we believe America is a great country... in no need of turning upside down. The problem has always been DC, not America.

In which case, it sounds like we need to invest much more seriously in our education system and emphasize the liberal arts where ideally one learns, along with history, sociology, politics, comparative religion... CRITICAL THINKING! The problem is, once people do become more educated and begin to think for themselves and know something about the world, they tend to move more and more to the left and become more democratic or liberal in their thinking because they see more and more of the the way thing are... and operate less and less from fear, ignorance, arrogance, small-mindedness, religious fanaticism ...and their dicks... by the way- Bush, Cheney, McCain and Palin were all way below average students.

Seems like it's just impossible to create the Moobatteryville On Earth you all wish for... please return to your caves and stay there. We promise to leave you alone.

This just in, an education in liberal arts will result in a left-leaning individual.

I know you all are shocked, but the newness of this information will soon pass, and then we'll learn how to deal with it appropriately. I myself was dumbfounded when I first heard this little tidbit. Or maybe I'm just dumb. After all, I only got a degree in civil engineering and then went on to focus on advanced geomatics and survey technology. What a buffon I was. I should've been studying literature or comparitive religion. Then I would've been the best damn burger flipper Mickey D's had ever seen.

Oh the shame. I cannot bear it.

What's really funny is how every subject Nardon lists I consider a hobby. I love reading. I don't need a 4 year degree to learn how to study literature, or religion, or politics, or history. Sociology certainly requires extended study, but it's not a "liberal arts" degree in any sense. That little suffix -ology should've tipped you off on that one. Being dominated by liberals does not make it a liberal art.

Critical thinking. Thanks for the laugh Nardon. How appropriate that in a post in which we mock the average Obama supporter's embarrassing lack of intelligence you would purport to have a monopoly on "critical thinking." That's just too rich.

Posted by: cowlove at November 18, 2008 7:28 AM

If you think institutions of higher learning foster 'critical thinking' you must not have been to one. Professors often lead their students towards a preferred opinion through subtly planted words and carefully crafted narratives. I could write a book on all of the half-truths and outright lies I have seen delivered by academics. The plan is ingenious, however. What more effective way of producing more liberals than to control their education during their formative years? These are the first years they are away from their parents; the first years of adulthood.

In essence, don't confuse education with intelligence. Being taught what to think by your liberal professors is nothing to be proud of.

As far as the media is concerned, the UK provides a great example of its ability to sway public opinion. The vast majority of UK subjects I talked to prior to the election believed almost every rumor about Sarah Palin, from the rape kits to the view of Russia. Why would they believe this garbage? Because that's what the newspapers and the BBC report. Then, even after these stories have been revealed as false, there is no correction.

Absolutely no effort was made over here in the two months leading up to the election to do anything but garner public support for Obama.

"The crowd neither wants nor seeks knowledge, and the leaders of the crowd, in their own interests, try to strengthen its fear and dislike of everything new and unknown. The slavery in which mankind lives is based upon this fear. It is even difficult to imagine all the horror of this slavery. We do not understand what people are losing. But in order to understand the cause of this slavery it is enough to see how people live, what constitutes the aim of their existence, the object of their desires, passions, and aspirations, of what they think, of what they talk, what they serve and what they worship."

All he's managed to do is get people like you uselessly riled up and give people like me something to do occasionaly to fill the odd idle moment, poke fun of the fools, which I occasionally feel bad about but nonetheless feel duty bound to do, to raise their blood pressure and cause them early death so we can move forward and create OBAMALAND... where the lion and the lamb will lay down together, the country will live in peace and harmony and every one will have enough (not plenty but enough) and there will be no BigDick mobiles with those fucking tuned exhausts scooting around to annoy the hell out of me.

Posted by: FezdoG at November 18, 2008 9:17 AM

If you insist on creating your own language please don't be offended when others find it incoherent.

I must also decline your offer of joining your ranks. You see, there is no possibility of me ever becoming a moonbat; I am a man of principle.

Instead of the self-mockery, you should ask yourself, "Why would anyone choose to emulate me and my behavior?"
You have little control over events in your life, therefore you admittedly offend other people in an attempt "to raise their blood pressure and cause them early death."
Perhaps you should reflect on your emotions and identify what is causing you to display the symptoms of someone who is having difficulty in living a psychologically healthy life.

People come to this website to vent frustrations just as you do, yet you state that you want them to die.
However, I won't become angry with you or the other trolls. Just like I told Dino, unless you two are the same person, if it makes you feel better to try and offend me, go ahead. It won't hurt me and it may make you feel better.

You truly have my pity, and I hope you can overcome the things that are bothering you.

[Abraham Lincoln was an extremist liberal during his time...does that mean Honest Abe was a moonbat?]

Yes, considering that Lincoln's hubris led to habeus corpus being suspended and over 600,000 Americans dying horrible debts and the sacking of the southern US over economics.

Lincoln was later harshly rebuked by the SCOTUS for his actions regarding habeus corpus.

Slavery was a red herring, just an emotional whip to put to a populace to get them into a war frenzy.

As an institution, slavery was on its way out and would not have lasted but another decade at the most due to the fact that automation was replacing slave labor.

[Why does the middle class historically do better under democratic presidents?]

Not only does the middle class do better under democrats, so do the rich, the poor and the stock market.

Republicans are a disaster. The only way they can get anywhere is to depend on the innate human need to preserve the status quo and cater to power. Liberalism requires a higher level of thinking that sadly, few possess. Occasionally we can pull some of the lessers along such as when they are experiencing pain as they are now.

It's hard being a superior human in an inferior culture.

Really? So it is the Republicans, not Democrats, who advocate a mass wealth-redistribution scheme run by the all-wise, all-knowing government? Please inform us how that is not catering to power, and how - since such a plan will stifle growth of the economy - it does not preserve the status quo.

It's hard being a superior human in an inferior culture.

Superior people generally do not need to make 20+ postings per day in the comments section of someone else's blog to get their message across.

I can see why you prefer thinking of yourself as exhibiting a higher level of thinking than most people, though: it absolves you from having to logically defend your arguments, as you can just say that everyone is just too stupid to understand your brilliance.

Damn straight GR.

And I don't think of myself of being a superior human all the time. It's only around my enimies/

Guys let's be serious. You could tell Dino the sky is blue and, because you're a conservative, he would instantly foam at the mouth and scream profanities while insisting it's purple.

The kid is a loon, and you would be well-served to remember that the craziest inmate in the psych ward thinks himself the only sane one.

Superior human? Conservatives should be sterilized? If you waste any emotion on this poor, trapped keyboard warrior, let it be pity. I'm with Harris on this one.

These are the same useful DEMOCRATIC PARTY VOTER idiots (in the video) that voted to oppress Gays in CA.

Yes, idiot DEMOCRATIC PARTY Voters who voted for Obama in CA, also told CA Gays to shut up on Prop 8.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and White Liberal Tools hate and CHOOSE to slap down Gays in CA.

Oh so sad to be so uninformed and uneducated.

Democratic Bigots and Hatemongers, all of them.

The Gays in CA should protest DEMOCRATIC PARTY Voters who hate them. Then they might get what they want.

Ignorant Obama supporters? What a suprise! My favorite story of the stupid Obama supporter comesw from my bar where we had 2 kids in their early 20s come in. One was wearing an Obama baseball cap. I asked him why he was supporting Obama and trhe response was, and I am not kidding, "He is friends with Jay-Z! I mean, how cool is that?" The kid was serious as a heart attack.

LOL!

I would LOVE to see these limp wristed pillow biters trot out to East LA, Compton or Watts and throw their little hissy fits.

Then again, I don't want the people in those communities winding up with an HIV/HEP C epidemic after beating them senseless for daring to call blacks/hispanics bigots.

Dino you are a Fucking Idiot! Get the F off this board and go back to your pathetic site like the Daily Kooks! This site actually has REAL news o it, not made up highschool shit. Um did you watch the video???? Every asshole on it didn't know jack about the election. Just like every other O-BOT!!!! I can't wait to laugh when your Messiah goes down the toilet. I am sure the media will try to cover up his shit but they can't cover up everything. I want my country back! We will never let you liberal wierdos take it over!

Dino,

You do no good for self-respecting homosexuals by degrading yourself so pitfully.

Your attempts to bait heterosexuals failed miserably. Its really sad.

Maybe one day you will learn to accept your sexuality without putting yourself down. Such things happen when a person grows up emotionally.
