In 2009, I wrote Obamanutz: A Cult Leader Takes the White House t0 explain how such a nothing burger got himself installed into the White House. Evidently, my next project will be Obamanutz 2012: a Cult Leader Retakes the White House.
The foundation remains the same–Obama is nothing special, just a warmed over radical. But he, the worst president in modern history, perhaps in the history of the Republic–not to give short shrift to Woodrow Wilson, managed to get another four years. How’d he do it this time?
1. The cheat factor. Birds fly, fish swim, democrats cheat. Republicans can’t win close elections unless they’re willing to fight for them. Democrats cheat even when they don’t need to. They invented and perfected it. We’re flummoxed every time. Sixty five districts in Philadelphia without a single Romney vote? Not even one by accident? Hugo Chavez and Vladimir Putin want to know how Obama pulled that off. All they needed was Ohio’s “inactive voter” rolls.
2. Some 3 million Darwin Award nominees who chose to sit home this election because Mitt Romney wasn’t conservative enough for their tastes. The idea was to teach us a lesson. These geniuses elected Obama instead,
3. Technology. We knew Mitt was an old fashioned kind of guy, but who would have thought the campaign was relying on Windows NT on election day? Obamas microtargeting software performed magnificently, ensuring maximum voter contact. Mitt’s software crashed. Quite possibly because no one had bothered to test it before the election.
There is plenty more to talk about. Be watching for the 2012 sequel to Obamanutz.
