Why Obama Will Lose in a Landslide

Old people may be afraid to lose their country, but they appear to be even more scared of losing their entitlements. Military women and homosexuals will continue to want Obama's "change" in the services that erode its traditions and fighting abilities. We are losing the war on information and we are fighting on too many fronts. Articles like Mr. Root's amount to blowing sunshine up Conservative butts. We keep patting ourselves on the back because we know that Obama is a disaster. Wake up! The whole country needs to know this. We are faced again with voting against Obama, and not for anyone we really want. Regardless of the candidate, our national and personal debt will consume America while we fiddle in the ashes.

He's assuming that these traditional Democratic voting blocks have new reasons NOT to vote for Obama. He should ask instead why they would vote Republican instead. The black community has always voted for candidates that violate their perceived moral standards. The same goes for the Hispanic community, which has largely become an immigration voting block. And does he really believe that Jewish Democrats will switch sides? Obama hasn't destroyed Israel yet and liberal Jews are just as concerned about liberal issues. Moderate suburban moms will be swayed with emotional arguments about the GOP "war on the middle class" and "restricting access to healthcare".

The GOP's failure to choose decent candidates is coupled with its ineptitude at combatting the media and it's tragic inability to read the electorate. We are faced with Mitt "Not My Candidate, But I Have No Choice" Romney and Obama. Obama will win. I pray to God that he doesn't, but Mr. Root is missing some crucial things. Most Americans still find this wicked man to be "likeable". They may not approve of how he does his job, but they hate Congress more. As long as Obama is seen as a generally "good dude" with a tough job, he has a strong shot. Every corner of America needs to know what a degenerate Obama really is. But the GOP won't push those buttons. Furthermore, Mr. Root isn't asking the right questions.

Mr. Root is far too sanguine. In May of 2011 there were a host of articles in "American Thinker" gushing over all the GOP candidates. They opined that the GOP could not fail to win the White House considering the qualifications of the candidates. The media then picked apart and gorged themselves on the remains of the candidacies. The nomination of Romney didn't require any special insight. He is the party's man. Mr. Root shouldn't praise his own powers of prognostication over this obvious guess. I'm no pollster of columnist, and I knew in the summer of 2011 that Romney would be the candidate - and it would be a disastrous choice.
Before you post about facts, you ought to separate myth from fact. The idea that the .223 was meant to "wound rather than kill" so that soldiers on the battlefield have to tend to wounded men is a fallacy. The .223 was billed as a high powered cartridge with the killing power of a full sized cartridge at half the weight. The military would not have purchased the AR-15/.223 concept if it was meant to wound. Colt advertised the round as mortally devastating and early field reports from Vietnam backed that up. The supersonic 55 gr. bullet with a 1/14 barrel twist produced horrible wounds. The traditional military mindset was such that the generals didn't believe that a "varmint" round could match their beloved .30 caliber. Terminal...
