Getting out the vote: The control of the legislature is at stake

Posted By on October 8, 2014

It’s getting ugly as we close in on mid-term elections. Democrats are making a desperate attempt to convince voters NOT vote them out of office. Republicans see blood in the water and are doing their best to tie previous and recent failures to Democrats and the president. Kentucky’s Democrat for Senate, Alison Grimes, has gone so far as to advertise I am not President Obama in her political commercials. The social networking partisans are flooding the Internet too. Democratic operatives have been posting tweets that attempt to put a positive spin on their 6 years of controlling the Senate and Executive branch of government … but no matter how you try to paint their shortcomings, it’s like putting lipstick on a pig.”

The Whitehouse did their part by tweeting lower unemployment numbers yesterday (above left) and suggesting that they were “better than projected” (who’s?) … but they failed to mention the $20 Trillion of mostly borrowed spending that redbook_michelleobamawas irresponsibly used in partisan fashion … or that only 62.7% of working age Americans have jobs (above right). That’s the lowest level since 1978 and 6 million fewer workers that were employed in 2007! How is that positive?

Michelle Obama is doing her part to try and fire up woman voters celebrating women veterans in an October 14th issue of Redbook. Unfortunately beside uniting, she has returned to her “blame America roots” by pointing out a particular female veteran was “trained to be a leader” but is unemployed because “this country’s not giving her that opportunity.” Of course that is in keeping with her resentment of 2008, “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” It sounds to me like not much has improved in the 6 years of Obama Administration leadership … and that she is still bitter about her country?
