PROOF: Democrats running away from Obama in Droves!(08-18-2012)
Democrats in great numbers are supporting Mitt Romney. Many former Obama supporters are openly rejecting Barack Obama and Joe Biden, with some very embarrassing repercussions for the Obama Campaign.
Gasoline prices have doubled under Obama. All other costs have risen. Housing and real estate values have dropped, as has the value of the dollar. Most people are far worse off financially and are much more pessimistic about the future than they were four years ago.
Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families has put together an informative and entertaining list of rebuffs and rejections that have recently impacted the Obama Perpetual Campaign (OPC).
The Obama/Biden ticket is finding out that times have changed. Four years ago, fawning crowds greeted them everywhere they went. Women swooned. Four years later, the campaign trail is far different terrain.
For example, Obama's recent three-day swing through Iowa did not go quite as planned. When Obama went to the Iowa State Fair and wanted to visit the Bud Tent, the Secret Service sweep shut it down for two hours, costing the owner $25,000 in lost revenue. The owner complained that he felt like he had been forced to make a "campaign contribution against my will."
The next day, Obama visited a farm in Haverhill, Iowa, to promote wind energy. Obama met with the farmer, Jeff Heil, and his son, Jarret. It was [a] perfect photo op for the president's alternative energy agenda.
But after Obama left, the Heils told reporters that they were voting for Mitt Romney. While they said it was an honor to have the president visit their farm, they said, "It is important to not get caught up in the president's glamorous re-election words and remember President Obama's first term record and rhetoric."
Then Obama went to a campaign event in Davenport only to find that the caterer was wearing a T-shirt with bold letters reading, "Government Didn't Build My Business, I Did."
And when Joe Biden asked to drop in on a local bakery in Virginia, the owner told his advance team, "No!" It is reported that security officials then returned to the store, thanked the owner and bought some cupcakes. When word spread of the baker's "cupcake mutiny," locals flocked to the store, and it sold out in a matter of hours.
Finally, it was announced yesterday that former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis will speak at the Republican National Convention this year. Why is that significant?
Davis, a black former Democrat, was an early supporter of Obama's 2008 campaign. In fact, he even delivered the seconding speech for Barack Obama's nomination at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. Four years later, Davis is endorsing Mitt Romney.
Romney Democrats are Conservative hard working Americans. They are tired of Obama’s lies, Obama’s destructive economic policies, and Obama’s out of control spending and debt that Obama plans to increase and expand. Many of the Liberals who are dependent on government checks are now realizing that Obama is killing the Golden Goose that funds their entitlements.
The Presidential Campaign will become more interesting and entertaining as Romney and Ryan confront Obama and Biden. However, Obama will become increasingly desperate and potentially more dangerous as it becomes obvious that Barack Obama cannot beat Mitt Romney in a fair election. We live in very interesting and dangerous times.
