Since the 2012 election, many have believed that Mitt Romney lost the election because many Republicans, turned off by Romney’s status as a “Republican in name only,” stayed home and didn’t vote. As the theory goes, the Republicans could have won the election if only they had nominated a candidate who was more conservative and who would have motivated the Republican base to turn out. Was there really a conservative boycott of Mitt Romney? The answer to the missing Republicans of 2012 can be found in exit polls and vote tallies.
The first thing to note is that Mitt Romney got more votes than John McCain did in 2008. The Federal Election Commission’s official tallies for 2008 show that McCain received 59,948,323 votes. The official 2012 results from the FEC show that Mitt Romney received 60,933,500 votes. Romney received almost a million votes more than McCain.
On Monday, July 14, the House Oversight Committee linked embattled former IRS agent Lois Lerner with yet another erased hard drive connected with a federal criminal investigation. In a letter to the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, which can be found on the House Oversight Committee’s website, relates to April Sands, an employee of the Federal Election Commission during the 2012 presidential campaign.
The letter details how Ms. Sands posted twitter messages during work hours “soliciting or endorsing political contributions to Democratic candidates, including President Obama.” The letter then provides screen shots of several of Ms. Sands’ tweets from an account known as “Reign of April:”
“It’s important for us to send a message to the world that when Americans are attacked, no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama patting himself on the back regarding the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala
Giving Obama a perfect narrative to once again sing his own praises, a new divert and deflect attention grabber has appeared as America’s very own traitor-in-chief announced yesterday for all the world to hear that U.S. Special Operations forces captured Ansar al-Sharia commander Ahmed Abu Khattala…one of the supposed ringleaders of the attacks at Benghazi. Captured in a ‘secret raid’ in Libya over the weekend…on Obama’s so claimed Friday go-ahead… what I want to know is why did he did NOT arrest himself and Hillary ‘What Does It Matter’ Clinton instead as they are the ones truly responsible for Benghazi…period.

“Baghdad is going to be overrun. The Green Zone is going down.” – U.S. intelligence official
As Iraq is on the verge of total collapse, the U.S. stock market is tanking, and oil prices are surging due to the ongoing violence throughout the entire Middle East. And Barack HUSSEIN Obama is doing NOTHING…doing NOTHING in regards to Iraq even after the Iraqi government has asked…has begged…for help. And his lack of action…except to say “we can’t and won’t do it for them” and that Iraq needs to settle its own political differences…political difference he has contributed directly to…will most assuredly result in the birth of a highly dangerous islamic caliphate that will NOT only be the foreboding of a jihadist takeover of Iraq and its surrounding Arab nations, but will be one which will pose a direct threat to America and all western nations as well.

As expected, yesterday Speaker of the House John Boehner announced that he had appointed you to head a select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks. Like he had a choice after your name lit up the airwaves and internet all weekend long. To back out of that appointment now would have been political suicide for Boehner what with his primary election today, but the good news is that you are the best there is to find…if it exists…a Boehner tie to the Obama cover-up of what happened that fateful night…after all one has to wonder why Boehner of all people opposed this committee for the longest time.
And Boehner’s words that he decided to form the special committee “in response to the release of emails showing the White House was more involved in misleading the American people than previously known and the revelation that the Obama administration had withheld these documents from a Congressional subpoena,” do NOT ring true for the only reason Boehner is doing this is because if he didn’t the calls for his immediate resignation would have resounded within the party loyal…the party loyal NOT the party RINO.

The amount of power the Obama administration is claiming for itself knows no bounds. Unless we finally stand up and say enough, we are going to lose our country. Obama promised to fundamentally change America, and he is well on the way to doing just that.
Well, there is no fun but the government is certainly mental, surpassed only by the fools who voted for this loser for a second term. He has used executive orders to skirt the law, sent armed goons to a ranch in Nevada and his EPA has given a city with 10,000 Americans to the Indians. What the heck is happening to America? Continue reading →
OK folks…here’s the bottom line before anything else…we MUST MUST MUST retake the Senate and increase our numbers in the House come November or it’s over…and over for a very long time if NOT forever. And only by turning Congress RED can Barack HUSSEIN Obama be rendered politically impotent from doing any more harm to our country.
We blew it in 2012…we cannot afford to blow it this time around. We blew what should have been an easy win and we blew it because of our own people. We blew it because of those ‘supposedly’ on our side who did NOT vote at all because their candidate of choice was NOT the nominee. We blew it because of those voters who put social issues before the very survival of our country. We blew it because many voted 3rd party simply because they felt the chosen nominee was NOT conservative enough for them. We blew it because of ‘certain’ religious leaders who told their flocks NOT to vote for the Republican nominee because he was NOT of their chosen faith. We blew it by listening and buying into the media’s defamation and dishonoring of a good man. We blew it by NOT putting a stop to the rampant voter fraud that we all knew was surely to come BEFORE it even happened. And we blew it because…geesh…the list goes on and on, and that is the saddest thing of all. Continue reading →
While I know it’s proper form is to address you as Mr. President, but as one of the proud 47+% who refused to buy into your liberal socialist agenda, and as one who respects and honors the office of the presidency, I just cannot in good conscious address you by that title for your usurping of the presidency through voter fraud and intimidation, machine tampering, and denying our military’s votes to be counted, I would then be dishonoring that very office if I did so.
So Mr. Obama, let’s cut the formalities and get right into it…stop trying to use race to intimidate and shame ‘We the People’ into marching in lockstep with you and your race-baiting buddies…Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, and Louis Farrakhan…and your so-overplayed collective guilt trip for slavery as it will NO longer work. Slavery ended in America 150+ years ago in case you’ve forgotten, and ‘We the People’ are fed up with it being thrown in our faces every chance you and your buddies get for NO one alive today owned slaves…period.

So much was made about the polls, and how they were manipulated last Fall to make Obama look like he was leading more than he really was. This poll manipulation, backed by threatening to sue Gallup in court if they didn’t change their ways, caused the polls to make it look like Obama’s reelection was inevitable when in reality the race was quite close. That illusion was effective and useful and allow a lot else to happen before and on election day. Continue reading →
