Isn’t it fun watching the Panderer–in–Chief, Aflac Obama, run around his sinking row boat like the duck in the TV commercial stepping on a hole here and fill a hole there with his wings? As the pages fall off the calendar, Obama races from one pandering opportunity to another.
First, he is against gay “marriage” because he wants to sway enough white voters (mostly blue collar Democrats) to get reelected. Then he needs money, so he “evolves” on gay “marriage.” Gays, who make up 3% of voters and will vote 99% for Obama anyway, coughed up about $1.5 million, and the media “ooohed and aahed,” but to what end?
But his “evolution” on gay “marriage” lost Obama about 20% of his African American base in a poll done immediately after his announcement. Blacks make up about 12% of voters. Moreover, African Americans’ enthusiasm to vote for him was only 48% before his “evolution.” Can anyone say it has grown since his announcement?
While a solid 67% of Hispanics intend to vote for Obama, even that number was not helpful because just 47% of Hispanics were enthusiastic about voting for Obama. Aflac Obama’s solution to that problem was to unconstitutionally grant amnesty to some 800,000 illegal aliens based on their age and their having been brought here illegally. Hispanics responded by giving him a surge in enthusiasm that brought their willingness to vote up to 60% ,which is better but hardly in the same league as the 87% enthusiasm among TEA party voters who will crawl through broken glass to vote against Obama.
By committing this particular illegal act, Obama further depressed his number of likely white voters to a number that makes it impossible for him to win in November.
Last spring, Aflac Obama decided to attack adherent Catholics with the issue of forcing them and other faith-based employers to offer their workers abortion and contraception coverage in their health care plans. By doing this, he hoped to rally weak or non-practicing white Catholics to his side. We can’t say if that worked, but we can say that this moved millions of adherent Catholics away from him and voting against him on the way. Pew found that Catholic support for Obama fell from 45% to 37% between March and April.
For Aflac Obama, America’s voters are on a seesaw; to move one group’s enthusiasm up, he has to push another group’s enthusiasm down.
