Election Reminder

With the election coming up in a couple weeks and many people filing absentee ballots, I figured it was time to dig up the list of complaints against Obama and the Democrats. You may have already seen this, but it's been updated and it's worth repeating. Share this with your friends. Post the link on other websites you visit. E-mail this on whatever list servs you participate in. Let's not let people forget why they want to vote the Democrats out!

Here are some of the things the Democrats did over the past two years that you may not have liked:

Democratic Hate

• Demonizing the Tea Party as racists and Nazis, and lying to manufacture “evidence.”
• Demonizing a cop as racist for arresting a Grade A jackass who happened to be black.
• Demonizing insurance companies to pass ObamaCare.
• Demonizing drug companies to pass ObamaCare.
• Demonizing employers to pass ObamaCare.
• Demonizing doctors to pass ObamaCare.
• Demonizing Arizona on the immigration issue.
• Demonizing banks to pass Financial Reform.
• Demonizing oil companies to pass cap and trade.
• Demonizing Republicans because. . . well, because.

• Which will lead to rationing.
• Excluding union plans and raising the limits on the Cadillac tax in union-friendly states.
• The abortion distortion in ObamaCare, which exposed “pro-life” Democrats as anything but. . . and now suing to stop their opponents from advertising this fact.
• Giving exemptions from ObamaCare to large, well-connected companies like McDonalds and 27 others.
Democratic Corruption
• It seems that every member of the Congressional Black Caucus is up on ethics charges, from taking dirty money (Charlie Goodtime Rangel) to sending stimulus money to relative’s banks (Maxine Waters) to awarding scholarships to ineligible family members (Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson and Rep. Sanford Bishop).
• Chris Dodd’s sweetheart deal with Countrywide.

• Democrats Jim Moran (Va), Peter Visclosky (Ind.), and John Murtha (Hell) directing $137 million in defense contracts to clients of a lobbyist who funneled more than $380,000 in illegal campaign contributions to them.
Electoral Manipulation
• ACORN voter fraud.
• Manipulating Massachusetts electoral laws to keep Ted Kennedy’s seat Democratic and help pass ObamaCare.

Twisted Nominees
• Marxist and racist Van Jones.
• Maoist White House Communications Director Anita Dunn.
• Pedophile Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings.
• Unqualified Supreme Court nominee the Latina Red Sonia Sotomayor.
• Unqualified Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.
Raping the Treasury
• The trillion dollar union/Democratic-interest-group giveaway known as the Stimulus bill and its dozen sequels.
• The trillion dollar Big Bank giveaway know as the TARP, the TALP and so on.
• Approving and then lying about $1.2 billion in bonuses to AIG.
• Authorizing massive salaries to the officers of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both of which escaped regulation.

Weak on Terror

• Refusal to recognize the "Islam" in Islamic terrorism.
• Losing the war in Afghanistan and sending troops for a fruitless last push before surrendering.
• Putting Navy SEALS on a show trial.
• Trying to move terrorism trials to New York City. . . so terrorists can be near their new mosque.
• Inexplicably (lol!) dropping slam dunk lawsuits against racist Black Panthers who tried to intimidate voters.
• Constant whining about racism. . . everything is racism.
• Apologizing to Arabs and blaming the United States for their hatred of us.
• Feigning ignorance of what could have motivated a Muslim to attack US soldiers at Fort Hood, and warning Americans not to hold this against Muslims.
• NASA’s new role as center for Muslim outreach.
• Democratic support of the Nazi memorial in the heart of Jerusalem. . . wait, I mean the triumphal mosque at Ground Zero.
Pro-Illegal Immigration
• Suing Arizona to stop it from enforcing a law the Federal Government is obligated to enforce.
• Trying to boycott Arizona.
• Reporting Arizona’s law to the United Nations as a human rights violation.

• The total mishandling of the BP disaster.
• Suppressing BP data to hide what really happened.
• Proving that leftist groups care about electing Democrats, not the causes they are using as Trojan horses.
Embarrassing Us

• Teleprompter in Chief.
• Scaring the hell out of New Yorkers with Air Force One joy ride.
• The arrogance of accepting the Nobel Prize for anticipatory good deeds.
• Joe Biden
And just in case you like to pretend to be a liberal at the office and you want to discourage your kooky liberal friends from voting, here are some of the most popular (albeit stupid) complaints about the Democrats from the left:
• The Democrats were too interested in bipartisanship for the sake of bipartisanship than in passing the best possible legislation.
• ObamaCare didn’t go far enough because the Democrats sold out to the health insurance lobby and the Republicans.
• The Democrats didn’t do anything to help the environment. They didn’t pass cap and trade, and Copenhagen was a disaster because the U.S. refused to push for a world treaty against polluters like India, China and Brazil.
• Harry Reid used the threat of filibuster (a false threat when he had 60 votes) to stop or slow everything the Democrats should have done.
• Obama never gave benefits to gays in the Federal government, which he could have done by Executive Order, he failed to stand up for gay marriage, and the Democrats didn’t even try to end "don't ask, don't tell."
• The Democrats did nothing to reform the immigration system.
• The Democrats got into bed with Wall Street, taking their money and selling out consumers to banks.
• The Democrats did nothing to stop the mortgage crisis.
• The Democrats didn’t bail out states like Michigan and California with federal money.
• Obama’s reliance on teleprompters chafes at their delusions about his brilliance.
• He’s not cool, he’s an elitist.
• He didn’t save the economy.
• He did nothing to punish BP, all he did was go on vacation.
• He didn’t get us out of Afghanistan.
There you have it. Pass it along to your friends, and make sure everyone votes!!!


Tennessee Jed said...

a great list. There is so much good stuff done at this site, you should consider one of those "printable version" buttons.

Notawonk said...

andrew: I am linking this along with today's post (and i may run a few more times, if you don't mind). here in texas we get to vote absentee, even if we are able to vote on election day, so many will be going to the polls to avoid the rush.

thanks, brother. well done.

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks Jed! I'm honestly not sure how to do a print version button. I'll look into that, that's a great idea!

Anything you would add?

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks Patti! Please, feel free to link as often as you like. This is stuff that people need to remember and pass on to each other so everyone remembers the urgency of voting!

Our ballots in Colorado are being mailed out Tuesday, so voting starts here already. In some states, like Colorado, more than a third of votes will be by mail!

Joel Farnham said...

I agree with Jed, Great List Andrew.

The only thing I would add is czars and czarinas appointed and held unaccountable for their actions. For the faux-liberals among us, not appointing enough czars and czarinas from the rainbow coalition. Not really true, but who checks these things out?

StanH said...

When I was a little kid around Christmas time I’d dream of Santa, and all the coming goodies. Now I dream of eliminating (metaphorically of course) as many liberals as I can, and the first Tuesday in November, for the foreseeable future is the new Christmas for this old man. I haven’t been so excited about voting in thirty years, most especially a midterm. Thanks for the list Andrew.

AndrewPrice said...

Joel, Thanks Joel!

And nice additional. There is so much that I literally forget about the czars! :-(

That tells you something about how bad Obama has been that something that significant could be forgotten.

Please feel free to pass this list around. Like I say above, this is information people need to remember now that voting is beginning.

AndrewPrice said...

You're welcome Stan! I'm looking forward to November like Christmas as well. The American public can give itself a great gift by voting out a massive number of these jerks and starting the process of turning our government around!

Tennessee Jed said...

Andrew - technically it could be part of climategate, but I think the white house suppressing the worst case scenario during BP is worthy. Because, the list is so extensive, I don't discount the possibility that it is in there, and I missed it, however.

P.S. whoever heard of a building doing anything BTW?

Tennessee Jed said...

o.k., its in there - sorry! BTW I happened to pick up a USA Today this morning. It is worth looking at the lead article which, in my opinion, unfairly inflates the number that are either Obama liberals or hard core liberals. I'd love to see the skewed data on that one.

AndrewPrice said...

Jed, Yep, it's there under the environmentalism exposed section.

I haven't seen the article you mention, but it probably is skewed. I've found that both parties tend to have a floor of support at about 43% of the election, below which they just won't sink. The rest in the middle aren't as sure a thing, though most of them are pretty much set in terms of which side they will support.

Whether those 43% are solid liberals/conservatives or not, that I can't say. It seems that people who think of themselves as "liberals" are around 33% of the population, but around another 10-15% are deluding themselves that they are really "independents" when they aren't. Of the liberals, I would guess that around 10% are hard-core socialists.

I'll see if I can find the article you mention.

Unknown said...

Andrew: Very comprehensive menu. And those were the good things about the Democrats. Just one more question: With 3 do I get eggroll? LOL

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, It certainly is a menu... a menu of failure. It's amazing how bad they've been when you see it all put together like this.

Unknown said...

Andrew: I suppose I should mention that California has long had the "permanent mail-in voter" ballot. I started doing that about ten years ago when I almost got myself arrested for going ballistic about the disrespectful way the American flag was being displayed at my San Francisco precinct. It was attached at a skewed angle to a stucco wall with masking tape. Here in Caliente, the mail-in ballot is a boon. My closest polling place is about twenty-five minutes away in "real" Caliente.

I checked with the Kern County registrar about why I hadn't gotten my voter pamphlets and ballot, only to find out that San Francisco had received my change of voter registration and hadn't forwarded the required information to Kern County. I wonder if that would have happened if I had checked the box that says "Democrat." Kern County got my ballot to me in two days, and I have now voted the straight Republican ticket.

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, I do the permanent mail in ballot now too. It's a lot easier and it gives you time to sit down and read all the issues -- and Colorado has a lot of them.

It would not surprise me in the least if the San Francisco registrar did that intentionally. There is a lot of voter fraud these days, and it always seem to be Democrats.

Ed said...

Great list, I'm forwarding it to everyone I know!

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks Ed! Pass it around!

Anonymous said...

It's impossible to keep up with all the bullshit the "damocrats" are doing but you should add lying about conservatives getting foreign money. Even the lamestream media is seeing through that one. Don't forget clinton used to get foreign money all the time.

AndrewPrice said...

Anon, Yeah, we should add that to the list.

Did you see the Scheiffer actually calling out Axelrod on the smear? He asked if they had any proof, and all that Axelrod could come up with was "do you have any proof it isn't true?" What an obvious lie.

(Shoot, lots of typos this morning... must still be asleep!)

CrispyRice said...

I love that you guys do these lists, Andrew! Even those of who stay well-informed forget half this stuff.

I'm sending it on, too!

Happy early voting everyone!

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks Crispy! We do try our best to provide a public service and it seemed like a good idea to remind everyone!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the reminders. Two things missing though. Bankrupting GM and Crysler bondholders (investors) and giving the money to the UAW and Michelle's European vaction with 200 of her closest friends, on the taxpayers nickel.

AndrewPrice said...

Anon, How could I forget that! That definitely needs to go on the list.

And don't forget that those shareholders were not Wall Street like the MSM liked to paint them, but were pension funds and middle-Americans who bought bonds that they thought were as safe as our economy. And Obama did it all so he could make the union a present of those companies. Disgusting.

Yeah, the vacation thing is infuriating as well!

Anonymous said...

Great list! Thanks. Passing it on.

Eazy J said...

Love the list, but don't forget the voter fraud.

Anonymous said...

Great list, Andrew. Thanks!

Here's another one:
$900,000,000.00 of our money to Hamas. Then, $400,000,000.00 of our money to Hamas.

Holy Land Foundation (Dallas) prosecuted for giving our money to...Hamas!

AndrewPrice said...

Anon and Earl, Thanks! Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about voter fraud. We've discussed that in other articles, and I'm discussing it again today.

AndrewPrice said...

Anon, Great point! How in the world can they support an organization that even the Hillary Clinton State Department identifies as a terrorist organization? Unbelievable!

Anonymous said...

Sory to nitpick, but wasn't it the Cornhusker Kickback?

AndrewPrice said...

Anon, Ooops. Good catch! Thanks!
