Obama won by 9.5 million votes in 2008. Obama has managed to sign up 15 million people on food stamps since that time, adding to his 2012 cushion. Carter was in a similar position when he ran against Ronald Reagan, only Carter didn’t hand out free shit to anyone with pulse, and he was soundly crushed.
Obama has bought enough votes with free shit that his re-election should be assured. And, let’s not forget, the electoral college elects presidents, not ordinary folk. People will undoubtedly vote themselves more free shit. Nobody believes the economy is going to get any better, or jobs are going to fall from the sky like manna from heaven. The FSA has grown exponentially under Obama, and they are probably quite comfortable with free food, free money, free housing, healthcare and medicine. In 2012, free shit will reign. But, I’m interested to hear what you think.
