Obama steals Lugar’s bad-news thunder

On a day when the political sob stories ought to focus on Dick Lugar, whom Indiana Republicans voted out after 36 years in the U.S. Senate, the bulk of the bad news from yesterday’s primaries instead concerns President Obama:

1. North Carolina is a swing state. Four years ago, Obama won the state by 14,177 votes out of more than 4.2 million cast. Last night, almost 200,000 voters in the state’s Democratic primary voted against him, even though no one else was even on the ballot. A constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, publicly opposed by Obama despite the mixed signals from his administration on the issue, passed easily, 61 percent to 39 percent.

2. Wisconsin is generally not considered a swing state — it’s typically been safe territory for Democrats. But 2010 saw the election of Republicans to a majority of the state’s legislative seats and the governor’s mansion. That GOP governor, Scott Walker, currently faces a recall election fueled by labor unions still steamed about his reforms of public-sector unions. In yesterday’s primaries for the recall, Walker, who faced only token opposition in the GOP primary, won almost as many votes as all five Democrats combined. What’s more, the preferred candidate of the fired-up unions finished second in the Democratic primary. The recall is considered a bellwether for partisan enthusiasm, both within the state and nationally given the large outside interest in the battle between Walker and the unions, and turnout yesterday does not bode terribly well for Democrats in the state. Nor does Walker’s $25 million war chest. If Walker wins, it just might be a springboard to making Wisconsin competitive in November.

3. West Virginia is not a swing state. Despite its track record of electing Democrats to the U.S. Senate — no Republican has won a Senate race there since 1956 — it has delivered its presidential electors to the GOP candidate in three straight contests and is a cinch to do so again this year. Still, the most embarrassing result from yesterday’s primaries is that a man who is slated to spend Inauguration Day in a federal prison in Texas won 41 percent against the Obama — a.k.a. the President of the United States — in the state’s Democratic primary.

No wonder famed Democratic strategist James Carville is telling his own side to “wake the you-kn0w-what up.”

Sadly, I guess you can’t believe that there are those “cons” who don’t like Obama simply because we think he’s doing a poor job and disgaree with his policies. If race were truly the key, why would cons like me vote in a heartbeat for Gen. Powell or Condy Rice? Oh yeah, I forgot. Because they disagree with the Jacksons and Sharptons of the lib world, they are uncle toms or whatever. Vote the candidate on his/her strengths, positions, etc. Folks like you I guess will always look at skin color first.

Did Obama campaign at all in WV? Run any ads asking people to vote for him? Spend any money on a primary that he was going to win regardless of who opposed him?

Obama doesn’t need or care about WV this time around. Even Rove’s “Obama’s going to stomp Romney” map shows Romney winning WV. It’s not a bellweather of anything other than a slow news day after we dispense with the Lugar story.

WI is more interesting, but only as a “warning shot” to Democrats thinking they had the governorship wrapped up. They have more work to do. Obama’s ground game will help them in November, but they need to step up and get people fired up again about replacing Walker. Walker’s got lots of outside money to spend and lots of PAC money is flooding into the state. I guess that’s good for their sluggish economy, right? Maybe Walker really is good for Wisconsin jobs, all evidence to the contrary.

Moderate Dems Bail on Obama in Primary Votes

The bad news for Obama is that Keith Judd, Inmate No. 11593-051, serving a 210-month sentence at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas, also outperformed the president’s 2008 West Virginia primary showing.

Judd, who lists himself as a “Rastafarian-Christian” and his career as “Founder, World Peace Through Musical Communications Skills,” took 41 percent of the vote among West Virginia Democrats and carried 10 counties.

This was about hardening resentment against Obama on the state’s top economic issue – Obama’s mounting restrictions on the mining and burning of coal – as well as a general sense among blue-collar, socially conservative Democrats that there isn’t a place for them in Obama’s party.

I didn’t know Rastafarians wore collars…more like T-shirts.

Too funny!

To those who will come on here claiming that Indiana is such a red state that they’d never elect a Democrat: You’ll need to brush up on your (recent) history. Obama won Indiana in 2008 and the state consistently had a Democratic senator until Evan Bayh chose to retire in 2010. The Democrat definitely has a chance in Indiana with Lugar out of the way.

And Obama might not win Indiana this time, but the electoral map is nearly insurmountable for Romney right now. He’d need to take ALL of the following states that Obama won last time- Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Florida. PLUS one more state (Nevada, etc.). That’s not going to happen.

First Monthly Budget Surplus in Three Years

Oh yeah, I forgot, all Obama does is drive up the deficit. Ooops….

The Congressional Budget Office has reported a monthly budget surplus of $58 billion, which would be a first in nearly three years.

Economic activity in the manufacturing sector expanded in April for the 33rd consecutive month, and the overall economy grew for the 35th consecutive month. Oops, I thought the Dems were just destroying wealth and jobs.

The economy added a little over 200,000 jobs in March, an average of 236,000 jobs per month since December. That’s the most for a four-month period in almost six years. It would also mark the first time the economy has created at least 200,000 jobs in four straight months since early 2000.

Hillary whooped Obama in the 2008 WV primary. Almost 20% of white voters there said race was an important factor in their vote. Unsurprisingly, most of those people voted for the non-dark candidate. So there is indeed a sizable contingent that openly admits why they vote against Obama.

The push for gay marriage may not fare well in light of Obama’s recent intrusion on the Catholic church. If the feds can force the church to pay for contraceptives, who’s to say they won’t force the church to perform same-sex marriages. It’s conceivable.

His heart wasn’t in it. He did it for money.

The dynamic – and Obama’s decision to sit for the interview Wednesday – underscored how much of president can ill afford to alienate any piece of his base in what is expected to be a tight election.

Another LGBT advocate familiar with White House and campaign deliberations said Wednesday the Biden comments spurred a renewed debate among Obama’s top policy and political advisers about what they could to satisfy this core constituency. That conversation included marriage and the executive order.

“The conversation is, what can and should we do to quiet the uproar and to get donors back on board,” the advocate said.

Do we see any riots occurring over the repeal of DADT? (crickets). No matter what Obama does, the GOP will make hay out of it. Did they criticize Obama over killing Bin-Ladin? YES, of course.

This is nothing but another distraction from a miserable record of failure by this current Liar-in-Chief.

Say anything at all to keep the attention away from the mismanagement of this incredibly weak recovery. It is a sign of desperation by this President that he can go against the wishes of 66% of the states in the nation just to try to shore up his base. Instead of looking at state-by-state numbers, he looks at a national poll which shows mild support for gay marriage and thinks he can get a few votes from it. Unfortunately, these polls are skewed towards the larger coastal states which already lean Democrat, with too small a sample to override the skew they give.

It doesn’t matter if this is the right stance to take (and it is) from an equality standpoint. From a political standpoint it is more fodder to energize the right against him and turn off the moderates who might be for him. A momentary blip for now, but it shows a long-term strategy that doesn’t bode well for him. If he can’t concentrate on his record on the economy and jobs, he’ll have a tough time winning an election focused on those issues.

Kyle Wingfield… You have honed your propaganda skills significantly… Your mis-information campaign is approaching the level practiced by Sean Hannity of Fox Fantasy News… The Gay marriage issue is nothing more than a diversionary tactic employed by Republicans, in an effort to distract the voters attention away from the crux of the issues.. The issues are the economy, jobs, rebuilding the infrustructure and free education… Gay marriage, Gays in the military, affirmative action, anti-Woman’s right to choose are all distractions…The Republicans throw fecal matter against the wall to see what will stick… The Republicans employ the diversionary tactic to cover up the facts that they have obstructed, blocked, delayed and scuttled President Barack “The Hawk” Obama and the Democrat’s job creating legislations in Congress… The unemployment rate would be down to about 5% if it were not Republican filibustering intransigence in Congress… Now they must answer to the voters… The angry voters in Wisconsin will vote Scott Walker out of office in a landslide and the rest of the Republicans will be swept from office in November…

ODD OWL, just a couple of points:

No one has forced the current Liar-in-Chief to come out for gay marriage, and I’m sure if this was some evil plot by the Republicans he wouldn’t have gone along with it anyway. What’s with you? Do you think Biden is a secret agent for the GOP, working behind the lines and making Obama do things he wouldn’t ordinarily do?

And the polls say otherwise in Wisconsin, ODD OWL. That will be (again) a close 5-point or less race. No such landslide is possible.

And the only way the unemployment rate would be down to 5% right now is if the GOP allowed the Liar-in-Chief to spend ANOTHER $5 trillion in deficit spending, and it would STILL be running out and winding down today, as the stimulus by it’s very nature is artificial.

(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans respond to President Barack Obama’s latest evolution on the freedom to marry.

“That the president has chosen today, when LGBT Americans are mourning the passage of Amendment One, to finally speak up for marriage equality is offensive and callous,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “Log Cabin Republicans appreciate that President Obama has finally come in line with leaders like Vice President Dick Cheney on this issue, but LGBT Americans are right to be angry that this calculated announcement comes too late to be of any use to the people of North Carolina, or any of the other states that have addressed this issue on his watch. This administration has manipulated LGBT families for political gain as much as anybody, and after his campaign’s ridiculous contortions to deny support for marriage equality this week he does not deserve praise for an announcement that comes a day late and a dollar short.”

They do have a point…too late for too many.

This is so entertaining.

So what’s he gonna do to guarantee they CAN be married? Words, just words.

I’m sure you have heard that the several Republicans in the House have said they will be working to kill Obamacare by defunding some of the provisions in the bill….

If they can defund Obamacare that means they are telling YOU that they control the “checkbook”

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he believes marriage should be between a man and a woman but that states should decide whether it’s legal for same-sex couples to marry.

Reid’s comments came in a statement Wednesday after President Barack Obama became the first president to endorse same-sex marriage.

Payback for Obama’s NRC appointment.

At least Reid’s been consistent on the issue.

Great idea, Democrats, holding your convention in a state that just dissed Obozo and voted to uphold the normal definition of marriage.

Here’s an idea–have it in West Virginia. Obozo won the primary there. Heck, his opponent, who “campaigned” from his prison cell in Texas, only got 40% of the vote!

Log Cabin Republicans:

(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans respond to President Barack Obama’s latest evolution on the freedom to marry.

“LGBT Americans are right to be angry that this calculated announcement comes too late to be of any use to the people of North Carolina, or any of the other states that have addressed this issue on his watch. This administration has manipulated LGBT families for political gain as much as anybody, and after his campaign’s ridiculous contortions to deny support for marriage equality this week he does not deserve praise for an announcement that comes a day late and a dollar short.”

Gay marriage supporters in Long Beach elated with Obama’s announcement

Michael Albetta of Fort Lauderdale, past president of Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus:
Today is a terrific day.

Milwaukee’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Community Center said that President Obama’s announcement supporting marriage equality for all committed adults, “represents a historic moment in our nation’s long journey toward our shared vision of equal treatment of all people.”
