I've said for years that the mainstream media doesn't report the news...they report the news that fits their storyline. Well as Ronald Reagan might say, "There you go again." Tuesday was one of the darkest days in American political history for a sitting President. And, as usual, the biased mainstream media decided not to cover it.
Obama had a "Come to Jesus" moment. A sign so devastating that he ought to consider dropping out of the 2012 Presidential race for the good of the Democratic Party...and America. Obama’s situation was summed up by comedian Jimmy Kimmel who recently joked “There is a term for Obama. Not two terms. Just one term."
Obama's jaw-dropping moment occurred Tuesday in the West Virginia Democratic Presidential primary. Obama squeaked out a 58% to 42% victory. You might ask, “Who got the 42%? I didn’t know Obama had an opponent for President on the Democrat side?” Good question. Obama didn’t know he had an opponent either. Neither did the media.
The man who got 42%? Inmate #11593-051. Yes, you heard correctly. A Texas prison inmate named Keith Judd, incarcerated for 17 years for extortion, won 42% of Democrat primary voters in West Virginia’s Presidential primary against Barack Obama, the incumbent President. Keep in mind these were Democrats, Obama’s most loyal voters.
But wait. It gets worse for Obama. Inmate #11593-051 won 10 West Virginia counties outright! Against a sitting Democratic President.
There are several conclusions to be drawn. First, Obama is in deep, deep, deep trouble. President Lyndon Johnson circa 1968 trouble.
Second, Obama's popularity in some areas of the country is as low as a politician can get without hitting zero. Obama would lose to Donald Duck in West Virginia nowadays. And it wouldn't be close.
But West Virginia is symbolic of the President's lack of popularity in vast swaths of America. Obama's electoral map should feature NY, NJ, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont in the Northeast...Illinois in the Midwest...California, Oregon and Washington in the West...and nothing but blank space in-between.
Just like his favorite companies GM and Chrysler, Obama himself is in desperate need of a bailout. Has anyone seen Hillary Clinton?
