Overzealous Obama Fan Gets Campaign E-mails, Responds With Gay Love Letters, ‘My Sweet and Darling Barack’

December 2, 2012 at 4:53 pm (Andrew Sullivan, Barack Obama, Chris Matthews, Dylan Hansen-Fliedner, First Gay President, Gay, Joe Biden, Love Letters, Michelle Obama, Pennsylvania)

Honestly, this could have actually been any member of the mainstream media that fell for this.

It was as if the first gay President was speaking to him.  Dylan Hansen-Fliedner received the same campaign e-mails that millions of others had during the election season.  You know the ones.  Form letters asking for your minor $3 or $5 donation, and signed with the President’s name.

But Dylan seems to be the only one who took things just a tad too far.

Via Politico (h/t Weasel Zippers):

… But one student at the University of Pennsylvania was inspired in another way. He wrote back. Love letters.

When Dylan Hansen-Fliedner received an email signed by “Barack” asking for help with the great challenges that lay ahead, the 20-year-old sought to reassure the president of his support: “writing this letter makes me run out of words..i love you so much that i dont know how to express it anymore..”

In response to a missive signed by first lady Michelle Obama, he wrote: “Dear Michelle, You existing makes me want to crawl under a rock. Your beauty undoes everything else—the sun dims and my childhood memories become less idyllic.”

And when Vice President Joe Biden – or “Joe” — emailed after his debate with Paul Ryan, Hansen-Fliedner wrote back: “I felt your pale eyes were telling something to me beyond words. My brain says it is just a delusion where you meant to convey nothing. My heart says there is definitely something in your heart which is not letting go of me.”

Here’s one exchange:

Dylan –

This is the last time we’ll do this.

Tonight is the campaign’s final FEC deadline.

I’m asking you to chip in before midnight.

Right now, this race is very close — the outcome will come down to what we do with the next 20 days.

If we win, it’ll be because each of us stepped up to do our part at moments like this.

Donate $5 or more today, and stand with me for the final weeks of my last campaign:

Thank you,

Barack

My sweet and Darling Barack

Today a feel very happy because I notice at each and every instant the importance you represent to me and the strength you transmit, so that I can face whichever obstacle without fear or insecurity, moved only by an infinite will to make you as happy as I feel this minute.

You are gorgeous and adorable, capable of making me realize how good it is to feel alive, how good it is that your presence makes me grow and transform into a better person, capable of turning dreams into reality and make the result of those dreams, now shared by us both, and eternalizing then into an ambience of harmony, care and love.

My life without you would lack meaning, lack sense. Without you I would be nothing but a wandering errant, searching for my path that could lead me to happiness’s door. But with you around, by my side, close to me, I’m certain of having made the right, safer and yet romantic choice. I feel that all this love and care, that I share here with you, goes both ways and it fills my heart with peace and joy. Gazing endlessly into your deep yet sweet eyes, I realize the tender and pure light that pours from your heart and soul.

I shall never let this feeling that joins us perish. Never, by any chance, let us dript away from love’s true path, built on complicity and affection.

I love you and forever will!

Love,

Dylan

The sad part here is that Sir Creeps A Lot is likely not alone in his admiration.

Romney Earned Zero Votes in 59 Philly and 9 Cleveland Voting Districts

November 13, 2012 at 8:58 am (Cleveland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Racism, Voter Fraud)

That’s simply unprecedented voting wizardry right there – nothing to do with voter fraud.

Via Philly.com:

It’s one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch.

These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst, but such results may not be so startling after all.

“We have always had these dense urban corridors that are extremely Democratic,” said Jonathan Rodden, a political science professor at Stanford University. “It’s kind of an urban fact, and you are looking at the extreme end of it in Philadelphia.”

Still, was there not one contrarian voter in those 59 divisions, where unofficial vote tallies have President Obama outscoring Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0?

 

Weasel Zippers adds this graphic from Cleveland precincts:

It’s either voter fraud or flat-out racism that drove these votes, no?

Bill Clinton: Who Wants a President Who ‘Knowingly, Repeatedly Tells You Something He Knows Isn’t True?’

November 6, 2012 at 3:18 pm (2012 Election, Ambassador Stevens, Barack Obama, Benghazi, Bill Clinton, Jay Carney, Libya, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Susan Rice)

“You are laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true? When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar.”

–  Bill Clinton, Philadelphia, November 5th
We here at the Mental Recession, couldn’t agree more.  So we urge Mr. Clinton to please tell the Obama administration to get their damn hands out of the cookie jar when it comes to Benghazi.

Breaking: GOP Wins Court Order to Re-Seat Republican Inspectors in Philadelphia

November 6, 2012 at 11:09 am (Court Order, Democrat, GOP, Judges, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Republican)

Republicans in Philadelphia didn’t take kindly to having their inspectors tossed from polling places … sometimes physically.  This is 2012, and Republicans aren’t rolling over for these thugs anymore.

So they fought back, and won the first battle –

Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the first court order issued by the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to seat Republican Minority Inspectors in Philadelphia Polling places:

“This was a shameless attempt from the Obama campaign to suppress our legally appointed Republican poll watchers in Philadelphia and they got caught,” Chairman Rob Gleason said.

“We’ve seen these shenanigans before and it’s clear that Democratic operatives and the Obama campaign are desperate; trying to shield Republican Minority Inspectors who are employees of the City of Philadelphia today from monitoring election activities.  It certainly raises the question, what are Democrats doing in the polls that they are working so hard to shield folks from monitoring this election?” 

So far this morning, Democratic operatives prohibited 75 legally credentialed Republican election workers from accessing polling places in heavily Democratic areas in Philadelphia. Incidents ranged from judges of elections refusing to seat Republican Minority Inspectors and Clerks, to reports of Democratic election operatives announcing that “No Republicans will be allowed in the polling place.”

As a result, the Republican Party of Pennsylvania petitioned the Court to issue formal orders to force Democratic judges of elections to seat Republican minority inspectors and clerks. The Court said that they will issue around 6-12 Orders with approximately 6 – 10 names per Order.

More Voter Intimidation: Eric Holder’s People Back in Philadelphia

November 6, 2012 at 10:12 am (2012 Election, Eric Holder, Intimidation, New Black Panther Party, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Polls, Voter Intimidation)

Before we get wrongly accused of racism, you might recall that Eric Holder famously referred to the case against New Black Panther Party members who showed up to Philly voting stations in 2008 wielding clubs as demeaning to “my people“.

Guess what?  They’re back…

This is a photo from the 14th Ward in Philadlephia.

Local TV stations are aware of yet another blatant attempt at intimidating voters by the uber-racist New Black Panther Party.
And now Fox News has reported on it:

Breaking: Republican Inspectors Being Tossed From Polling Stations in Philadelphia

November 6, 2012 at 8:22 am (2012 Election, Democrat, GOP, Judges, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Poll Inspector, Republican)

And so it begins…

Its happening in Philadelphia – Democrats are trying to steal the election.

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

The Philadelphia Enquirer is on it:

These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats).

Philadelphia is a liberal hot bed, and will no doubt see plenty of voter intimidation tactics.  It isn’t an isolated incident either.

This has happened at the following locations:

Ward 32, Div 13
Ward 43, Div 14
Ward 56, Div 1
Ward 56, Div 22
Ward 32, Div 28
Ward 32, Div 28
Ward 12, Div 17
Ward 39, Div 1
Ward 24, Div 9
Ward 18, Div 25
Ward 43, Div 14
Ward 29, Div 18
Ward 65, Div 19
Ward 20, Div 1
Ward 6, Div 11

Republican Internal Polling Has Romney Up in Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Tied in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

November 5, 2012 at 5:33 pm (2012 Election, Dick Morris, Iowa, Mitt Romney, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Polls, Republican, Wisconsin)

If these figures are correct, Romney will almost certainly become the 45th President of the United States…

Via the Daily Mail:

Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio, according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source.

Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and – most startlingly – Pennsylvania.

If the Romney campaign’s internal numbers are correct – and nearly all independent pollsters have come up with a picture much more favourable for Obama – then the former Massachusetts governor will almost certainly be elected 45th U.S. President.

Then there’s these headlines on Drudge:

It’s going to be a stressful day tomorrow for most of us.  But not in the mind of Dick Morris, who is predicting a Romney landslide.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Dick Morris doubled-down today telling Megyn Kelly on America Live there is a 90% chance Mitt Romney will win tomorrow and a 60% chance it will be a landslide.

Only time will tell, but I tend to lean towards Morris’ and George Will’s thinking.  Romney wins going away.

PA Democrat Refuses to Say Pledge of Allegiance at Committee Meeting

October 5, 2012 at 11:00 am (Babette Josephs, Democrat, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pledge of Allegiance, Under God)

Democrat lawmaker Babette Josephs (D-Philadelphia) was asked to lead the House committee in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.  She refused.

Her reasoning?  The words ‘under God’ were inserted into the Pledge, making it a prayer in her eyes – and she doesn’t pray in public.

Or something…

Of course, this is Philadelphia, where the liberals are willing to compare a Mitt Romney t-shirt to a KKK sheet, but are unwilling to utter the phrase ‘under God’ in public.

abc27 WHTM

Via ABC 27 (h/t Gateway Pundit):

Politicians are often criticized for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time that’s taken the wrong way. But state Representative Babette Josephs (D-Philadelphia) is being criticized for what she refused to say.

The drama unfolded at what was billed as a non-controversial House State Government Committee meeting Wednesday morning. Republican Chairman Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) asked Josephs to lead the group in the Pledge of Allegiance; a rather routine request that became anything but when Josephs refused.

“Based on my First Amendment rights and based on the fact that I really think it’s a prayer. I don’t pray in public,” she said as lawmakers were standing to recite the Pledge.

After an awkward moment, Metcalfe quickly called on another member to lead the group.

Afterward, Josephs was unapologetic. She said she was about 14 years old when Congress inserted the words ‘under God’ into the Pledge. She insists that makes it a prayer.

“How many years ago was 1954? I have not said the Pledge of Allegiance since and I will not say it into the future unless they take those words out and make it less of a prayer,” Josephs said.

Metcalfe concedes it is Josephs’ right to not say the Pledge. He just thinks it’s wrong.

Metcalf later added, “I’m glad she’s retiring.”

High-School Teacher Compares Student’s Romney T-Shirt to KKK Sheet, Then Threatens To Attack Her

October 4, 2012 at 10:58 am (KKK, Ku Klux Klan, Mitt Romney, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Tolerance)

What has become of the city of Brotherly Love?

Via Philly.com:

Last Friday was dress-down day at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond — a day for students to leave their uniforms at home and wear whatever they liked.

One young woman chose to wear a shirt showing her support for Gov. Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy.  Her geometry teacher didn’t like it, the girl’s father said on a radio call-in show on IQ 106.9 FM today.

According to the father, the teacher demanded that the student take off her shirt, comparing it to a Ku Klux Klan sheet.  Aside from the racial hyperbole being exercised by an ignorant teacher, should a teacher, regardless of subject matter, ever ask a female student to take off their shirt for any reason?

But it didn’t end there, as LaborUnionReport explains:

That’s when things turned ugly for her in the “Democratic school.”
The teacher allegedly told the girl to take off the shirt, saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet. The teacher allegedly threatened to use a marker to cross out Romney’s name and that of Rep. Paul Ryan, his running mate. The teacher also allegedly tried to throw the student out of class.
The teacher also allegedly said that Carroll was “a Democratic school.”[Emphasis added.]

An investigation is ongoing according to the Inquirer.

Pollsters Really Want You to Believe Obama is Winning Big, Problem Is They Don’t Believe It Themselves

September 26, 2012 at 11:08 am (2012 Election, Bias, Democrats, Florida, Hugh Hewett, Mitt Romney, New York Times, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Peter Brown, Polls, President Obama, Quinnipiac)

A new poll released by the New York Times seems to be very dreadful news for the Romney campaign.

For weeks, Republicans in Ohio have been watching with worry that the state’s vital 18 electoral votes were trending away from Mitt Romney. The anxiety has been similar in Florida, where Republicans are concerned that President Obama is gaining the upper hand in the fight for the state’s 29 electoral votes.

Those fears are affirmed in the findings of the latest Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls of likely voters in both states, which show that Mr. Obama has widened his lead over Mr. Romney and is outperforming him on nearly every major campaign issue, even though about half said they were disappointed in Mr. Obama’s presidency.

Upon further review, the poll is just another example of how the media is intentionally manipulating numbers in an attempt to keep Romney voters discouraged, and by extension, from showing up to the polls.

Jamie Wearing Fools explains just how the Times ended up with their numbers, and why the reality is that those swing states appear more as a dead heat right now, than a landslide victory for the President.

So Obama allegedly is up 10 in Ohio, 9 in Florida and 12 in Pennsylvania? Sure.
Here’s the sample they use.
So Obama is up 9 in Florida with a D+9 sample, up 10 in Ohio with a D+9 sample and up 12 in Pennsylvania with a D+11 sample. I notice in all the orgasmic news reports this morning none of them mention the ridiculous skew to the polls. But all you will hear all day is how big a lead Obama has.

Here’s the real kicker though.  The Assistant Director of Quinnipiac Polling, when asked about the sampling data used in a previous similarly skewed poll stated that even he didn’t think the numbers matched up with the likely voter turnout come November.

From Da Tech Guy:

By an odd coincidence the last time this poll came out Hugh Hewett questioned Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Polls and asked him about this (emphasis mine):

Hugh Hewett: But I don’t know how that goes to the issue, Peter, so help me. I’m not being argumentative, I really want to know. Why would guys run a poll with nine percent more Democrats than Republicans when that percentage advantage, I mean, if you’re trying to tell people how the state is going to go, I don’t think this is particularly helpful, because you’ve oversampled Democrats, right?

Peter Brown: But we didn’t set out to oversample Democrats. We did our normal, random digit dial way of calling people. And there were, these are likely voters. They had to pass a screen. Because it’s a presidential year, it’s not a particularly heavy screen.

HH: And so if, in fact, you had gotten a hundred Democrats out of a hundred respondents that answered, would you think that poll was reliable?

PB: Probably not at 100 out of 100.

HH: Okay, so if it was 75 out of 100…

PB: Well, I mean…

HH: I mean, when does it become unreliable? You know you’ve just put your foot on the slope, so I’m going to push you down it. When does it become unreliable?

PB: Like the Supreme Court and pornography, you know it when you see it.

HH: Well, a lot of us look at a nine point advantage in Florida, and we say we know that to be the polling equivalent of pornography. Why am I wrong?

PB: Because what we found when we made the actual calls is this kind of party ID.

HH: Do you expect Democrats, this is a different question, do you, Peter Brown, expect Democrats to have a nine point registration advantage when the polls close on November 6th in Florida?

PB: Well, first, you don’t mean registration.

HH: I mean, yeah, turnout.

PB: Do I think…I think it is probably unlikely.

This is the man conducting the polls saying essentially that he doesn’t think the oversampling of Democrats used in the poll will be representative of the turnout in November.

There’s still plenty of work for Romney to do to win these swing states, but Republicans need not nearly be as concerned as the media would like them to be.
