"2016: Obama's America" is a must-see for those not wanting to be part of the "moron vote" in November. "2016: Obama's America" is showing this weekend in Manchester at Rave Buckland Hills, in Plainville at the AMC Loews 20, and at about a dozen other theaters around the state as found below: http://www.2016themovie.com/theaters/?state=CT "Mr. Obama is casting his net for the moron vote. I do not believe there are enough morons out there to re-elect him." Read more: TYRRELL: Obama's looking for the moron vote - Washington Times I agree with R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. that "there are [not] enough morons out there to re-elect him," because of what this Patch article reveals about the great lack of enthusiasm now for their candidates, after their blatant failures with employment and the Economy, Also, Millions of Americans are 'waking up' and realizing their grave mistake in voting for Obama in 2008. This is affirmed by 1) Romney's huge fundraising success compared to Obama's desperation over his donations being way down. 2) The size of the crowds at their appearances, which are now embarrassingly SMALL for "the one" 3) People are apologizing for their votes for Obama to their better informed friends, and to luminaries such as Rush Limbaugh and Mayor Giuliani--both of which I heard on WABC just this afternoon.

MAC, I agree with everything you say. That said, don't get cocky! Every political observer knows that anything can happen between now and November. We just need to keep hammering away at Obama's poor job performance, and hopefully there will be enough people who can see the reality of this amateur President in November. Focus on the real issues like economic growth, private sector job creation, the $16 trillion plus Federal deficit, etc., instead of resorting to diversionary issues like Obama does. A President with no real job experience before being elected (i.e., community organizer, part-time lecturer at second-rate universities, etc.), someone with absolutely no experience running an organization, a President who can't even pass a budget (let alone balance one), a guy who appoints cabinet secretaries who can't even do their own taxes (e.g., Tim "Turbo Tax Cheat" Geithner), etc., etc., ETC.!!! Stay focused on what is most important for our country as a whole, instead of what is important to selected political constituencies, as Obama does! I can't see the people of this country re-electing this charlatan after the past four years, but they elected him to begin with. It is time to give someone else a chance before our country is completely ruined!
