Black Voters in North Carolina Abandoning Obama

June 13, 2012 at 9:00 am (2012 Election, African-Americans, Blacks, Gay Marriage, NC, North Carolina, Obama, Poll, President Obama, Public Policy Polling, Same Sex Marriage)

Support for President Obama among African-American voters is plummeting in North Carolina, likely a result of his ‘evolution’ from opposing gay marriage, to becoming the nation’s first gay President.

North Carolina, considered a crucial enough swing state for the Democrat party to hold their convention there, is leaning Romney right now, 48 to 46 percent according to a new poll.

But the stunning information coming out of this poll is that Obama only leads the African-American vote by a clip of 76 to 20 percent.  Still a huge difference sure, but in 2008 Obama beat McCain for the African-American vote by a 95 to 5 percent margin.  Just last month, Obama led 87 to 11 percent, so clearly blacks are abandoning Obama like the sinking Titanic his campaign has become.

To add to the misery expressed in this poll, it is not a conservative think tank poll, nor even a supposedly objective media poll – it is from the Democrat leaning Public Policy Polling.

From Business Insider:

President Barack Obama is rapidly losing support among African-American voters in North Carolina, a new poll out today from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling shows.

The poll finds that Mitt Romney would get 20 percent of the African-American vote if the election were held today, compared with 76 percent for Obama. Overall, Romney has a 48 percent to 46 percent lead on Obama in the crucial swing state.

… All of Obama’s numbers with African-Americans are sliding. His approval rating is down from 86 percent to 77 percent. Romney’s favorability, meanwhile, has doubled from 9 percent to 18 percent.

…  (Jim) Williams (polling analyst) added the obvious: If the results keep turning up like this, it would be “very bad news for him.”

Bad news for Obama = Good news for America.

Poll Results – Gay Marriage a Non-Issue In Coming Election

May 30, 2012 at 9:00 am (2012 Election, Campaign, Gay Marriage, Issues, President Obama, Same Sex Marriage)

If President Obama was under the impression that his gay marriage flip-flop-flap was a game changer, readers of the Mental Recession would beg to differ.  Our recent poll seems to indicate that people simply don’t care about this social issue, and rank it well below other major problems facing our country today.

We asked:

Is gay marriage an important issue in the 2012 election?

And you said:
  • Extremely Important – 30%
  • Don’t care – 67%
  • Undecided – 2%
This highly scientific poll can not be disputed in it’s accuracy.  Because we said so… so there.

Manny Pacquiao Banned From LA Mall Because It’s "Not a Place For Intolerance"

May 16, 2012 at 3:40 pm (Boxer, Boxing, Catholic, Gay Marriage, Intolerance, Los Angeles, Mall, Manny Pacquiao, Philippines, Rick Caruso, Same Sex Marriage, Tolerance)

Seriously, are there any leftists out there that readily understand irony?

Boxing champ Manny Pacquiao recently voiced his support for marriage as an institution between one man and one woman.  In an interview with the Conservative Examiner, Pacquiao had the following to say:

“God’s words first … obey God’s law first before considering the laws of man.”

“God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other.”

Not surprising, considering over 80% of the population identifies as Catholic in Pacquiao’s home country, the Philippines.

So how did the owner of a popular LA mall respond to those remarks?  By banning the boxing legend – for intolerance.

Via Big Government:  (h/t Weasel Zippers):

The “tolerant” same-sex marriage left has struck again – this time, at the popular hangout The Grove, in Los Angeles. The owner of The Grove, Rick Caruso, tweeted that iconic boxing great and Philippines Congressman Manny Pacquiao would not be allowed “on the premises” thanks to Pacquiao’s outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage. “Boxer Manny Pacquiao is not welcome @TheGroveLA,” he tweeted. “@TheGroveLA is a gathering place for all Angelenos, not a place for intolerance.” Pacquiao was supposed to do an interview today with “Extra” at The Grove.

That now earns him a ban from a public area in Los Angeles.

So Caruso’s response to alleged intolerance is to promote blatant intolerance?

Now picture this had Pacquiao been a supporter of same sex marriage, who was subsequently banned by a conservative business owner.  Perez Hilton, Dan Savage, and the like would be protesting and demanding the mall be shuttered, and the media would be hammering the owner for intolerance, labeling him a right-wing bigot.

Liberals want people to believe they support free speech and welcome all groups into their tent equally.  But that only applies if you agree with their agenda whole-heartedly.

Intolerance, thy name is liberal.

More Proof That Obama’s Historic Same Sex Marriage Announcement Was Politically Motivated: Gay Campaign T-Shirts

May 11, 2012 at 4:10 pm (2012 Election, Gay, Gay Marriage, Merchandise, President Obama, Same Sex Marriage, Swag, T-Shirts, Wal-Mart)

This was our take on the Obama gay marriage announcement earlier this week:

The Panderer-In-Chief is already soliciting campaign donations for his newly found … um … love affair, with gay marriage.

This is such a low-level calculated move to get votes, that I would almost think it beneath even Obama to stoop this far.

Well, Obama just stooped even further.  Todd Starnes calls it “a Wal-Mart of gay campaign products”.

Via Weasel Zippers:

The front page of the Obama merchandise store is now dominated with gay gear. Even a “LGBT for Obama party pack.

And here is some of the the swag you’ve all been waiting for…

And don’t forget the party pack!
Honestly, this is pathetic even by Obama standards.
When the President says he has a laser-like focus on the economy, he’s referring to his own personal economy.

Updated: Obama Once Again For Gay Marriage

May 9, 2012 at 8:56 pm (Catholic, Christian, Economy, Gay Marriage, Man, Marriage, Pandering, President Obama, Religion, Same Sex Marriage, Woman)

The biggest question here is – who the hell gives a flying fig?

Via ABC News:

President Obama today announced that he now supports same-sex marriage, reversing his longstanding opposition amid growing pressure from the Democratic base and even his own vice president.
In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, the president described his thought process as an “evolution” that led him to this decision, based on conversations with his staff members, openly gay and lesbian service members, and his wife and daughters.
“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told Roberts in an interview to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday.

But is the Panderer-in-Chief really “reversing his longstanding opposition”?  Was his opposition more longstanding than say 1996, when he stated “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”
Oh no, they must have meant his stance in 2004 when he said, “My religious faith dictates marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is not a civil right.”
Honestly, this announcement is the flip-flop to end all flip-flops.  It is not an ‘evolution’ by any means.  Evolving dictates that you’re moving from one viewpoint to another.  Eventually coming full circle to your original stance is not evolution.  It’s called playing politics depending on which way the wind is blowing.
What happened to the President’s laser-like focus on the economy?  Why is he trying to divert the country’s attention from the horrid job numbers, from an economy on the brink of collapse, an economy on the road to tax and spend oblivion?
The move reeks of desperation.  This announcement will have little effect on the polls six months from now.  It further infuriates those who have seen this President’s policies as an attack on religion in the first place.  And it further underscores the Obama mantra of indecisiveness.

And for those who argue that this is an historic announcement – get a grip on yourself.  Same-sex marriage is not a civil right, it is a manufactured controversy.  It is not akin to the civil rights movement for blacks, or the civil rights movement for women.  It is not an Arab Spring.

It is a non-issue.

Bottom line – Who the hell can afford a wedding in Obama’s economy anyway?
Can we get back to real news now?

Update:  The Panderer-In-Chief is already soliciting campaign donations for his newly found … um … love affair, with gay marriage.

Via Weasel Zippers:

Today, I was asked a direct question and gave a direct answer:
I believe that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry.
I hope you’ll take a moment to watch the conversation, consider it, and weigh in yourself on behalf of marriage equality:

So I decided it was time to affirm my personal belief that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry.

I respect the beliefs of others, and the right of religious institutions to act in accordance with their own doctrines. But I believe that in the eyes of the law, all Americans should be treated equally. And where states enact same-sex marriage, no federal act should invalidate them.

If you agree, you can stand up with me here. [goes to campaign fundraising page]

Thank you,

Barack

This is such a low-level calculated move to get votes, that I would almost think it beneath even Obama to stoop this far.

Incidentally, now that Obama is an advocate for states rights, he’ll be dropping lawsuits against those who are trying to secure their own borders right?
