Drop In VA Polls By Obama Due To What?

Updated on July 24, 2012

I ran across this segment of a radio interview with a Virginia state senator by the name of Louise Lucas which I found to be incredibly ignorant and a flagrant display of the proverbial Democratic display of the race card hitting the table. I expect to see more of this as we approach November's election. Ms. Lucas just can't seem to understand that many people who "don't like Obama" don't like his policies and his lack of leadership skills and abilities rather than the color of his skin. So let me clarify for Louise why I don't like Obama since she says "no one" can state why. He lacks the qualifications, experience and leadership skills to be the President of the United States. It has everything to do with his failed policies and nothing to do with the color of his skin Ms. Lucas.

Her tirade was centered around the release of a Quinnipiac University poll on July 19th that showed Romney and Obama in a dead heat at 44% a piece. That poll wiped out Obama's previous 8 point lead in that swing state. According to Louise it can't possibly be attributed to anything but racism. Seriously? Obama has lost about 30% of his support in 42 months. So according to Ms. Lucas 30% of those voters have suddenly become racists. Really? Can the woman be serious or is she just a racist?

Brace Yourself As You Listen To This...

Just reading You Tube user comments from people who have listened to that video are a clue to me just how far back Barack Hussein Obama has set race relations in this nation. Many of the comments reflect just how incensed people can become when faced with the stupidity the woman displayed by opening her pie hole.

The first thing she attributed the change in the numbers to was vacations. At first I thought she might be talking about the 16 vacations that the Obama's have taken in less than four years. But she was talking about voters who aren't "hearing and paying attention" to the message because it's summer time. It's the kids. It's hot and on and on. It couldn't be that likely voters are listening to the messages we are hearing and actually paying attention could it Louise?

Want some more bad news Louise? A just released USA Today/Gallup Poll seems to indicate that 63% of people surveyed disagree with the Obama message that Romney's business experience and time spent building Bain Capitol don't give him a decisive advantage in managing the economy, creating jobs and reducing the federal budget deficit. Obama has spend $100 million dollars in a negative ad campaign so far targeting a man's success, not his failure. So maybe people are hearing the message and paying attention. Experience should count as should qualifications. 63% say it will help in making sound decisions while 29% say otherwise.

Hey Lousie! "It's the economy Stupid!"

Try Voting For The Right Reason This Time

So as she went along out came the race card. Even John Fredericks seemed a little uneasy as the woman started her hate filled diatribe. Here's something else a bit disconcerting that she said when asked if she really believed what she was saying, “I absolutely believe it is all about race and for the the first time in my life I’ve been able to convince my children finally that racism is alive and well… . All across this nation, and especially in Virginia.” So here we have a mother preaching hatred and intolerance to her obviously grown children. Louise is no spring chicken folks.

Intelligent people? She keeps talking about intelligent people. Maybe she should become one and start actually reading what the pulse of the nation is. So lets look at another poll that would have Lucas slapping the race cards on the table fast and furious, no connection intended. This one put together by Pulse Opinion Research. She's like Obama - blame Bush. We're now too far into this fiasco for the public to continue to accept Obama's excuses. Again this poll was conducted using likely voters.

Louise would be startled to find that 66% found that slow job growth and the lethargic economic recovery are caused by bad policy. Here's the breakdown of who they say contributed to the cause:

1) 34% say Obama is most to blame

2) 23% point the finger at Congress

3) 20% say Wall Street

4) 18% play the Obama blame game and it's Bush

You can find the entire poll analysis at the link below.

So Louise said, "President Barack Obama did not create this economic mess we’re in. Everybody knows that this stuff happened under President George Bush and they’re trying to dump it on the president. … And the mess that was created could not be solved in two or three or four years. Intelligent people understand that."

Has Lousie forgotten what Obama said as he told us he would fix the nation's economy and that he was qualified to do so? Let me refresh her memory as an intelligent citizen of this country. People like Louise offend me when they display their ignorance.

His Exact Words. What About It Louise?

It needs to be a one term proposition Ms. Lucas. It has nothing to do with race and there are many of us across this country that can tell you, or anyone else for that matter, exactly why we don't like Barack Hussein Obama and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin.

Maybe you, as a reader, can help Louise out in understanding why you don't like the man in plain English that she will easily understand. In the meantime Louise stop slamming the race card down hard on the table. It's disgusting and quite frankly - UNINTELLIGENT.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Remember In November!

      I think Obama has done more to set race relations back than any other single person and he is only half black. Race has nothing to do with his incompetence and inability to do one single thing to help this country move forward. I am not living in the country I grew up in. Great hub. Up and awesome.

      Almost hate to ask this, but is it possible that Ms. Lucas is a racist who seeks to disguise that fact by pointing the finger at others and hollering 'racist'?

      Remember in November.

      Ms. Lucas is a typical obama supporter. Something like an Athletic supporter. One would fit her well. She is a Knuckle-Head.

      Fred - Not sure what the heck is going on in Virginia but today it turns out that a bit of voter fraud is in the air.

      Then there's this bit of information:

      I heard Ms. Louise on the radio, and also the results of the poll. Just shook my head. Clearly, she's one of those who will vote for Barack a 2nd time because of his color. There is a core cadre of such voters out there.

      But for the majority, it's not about race. It's about policy--oh, yeah, and that 9-letter word, competence. Or, sadly enough in the case of the President, the lack thereof.

      My comment is, Ms. Lucas is a typical Negro living in the PAST. When these guys are loosing, they play the RACE CARD and people, both white and good blacks, are tired of it. Black people are more educated now and are not buying into the BS. Ms. Lucas will not survive the future if she and others like her don't Let It GO and realize that blacks at this time are being over-compensated for their oppression. I am hispanic and do NOT like the way my people are handling themeselves over ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. It is ILLEGAL and that's that. Our government doesn't even get it. Oh, they will. My prediction, there will be a "Major REVOLUTION in this country and the GOOD will PREVAIL" Too many different cultures here now and it can't go on like this because most of them do not follow what WE have cherished for two hundred plus years. I feel that WE will be making that known in a BIG way soon. Too bad it has to come to this. If you don't like this country, GO HOME. If you stay, then conform because if you fight it, you will be swallowed up when IT happens. Concerned AMERICAN, Larry Velasco.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, First thing WE have to do is, RID this country of Barry Soetoro Hussein, the little PUNK MUSLIM, Liar. Vote and NOT for the little BASTARD you have for president now. He is EVIL

      It is a shame so many people are stupid enough to fall for ploys like this. The man is not even black and if I were black I wouldn't call him that either. Anyone that listens seriously to all silliness as this are very ignorant. I wish anyone could give me one good reason that man should be in office another four useless years. He did absolutely nothing until it came campaign time and even now it is all with the presidency in mind. Once a liar, always a liar. That will always be my slogan against him.

      Lucas is an idiot. If we were all so racist, how was Obama elected in the first place, first to Congress, and then as President? The truth is that Lucas and her ilk simply can't accept that progressive economic policy always has been, and always will be, a failure. This policy makes federal government bigger, richer, and more powerful. These so-called "do-gooders" couldn't give a rat's derriere about the people thay are pretending to help; all they care about is their own aggrandizement of power, and making their jobs bigger so they can justify getting paid more. Sadly, there is no way to convince progressive policymakers of this, as they have convinced themselves that no economy can work absent central planning. It's really pathetic, as virtually all centrally planned economies have per capita GNP's that are about 1/10th that of free market economies.

      I just don't like his vacations, blaming Bush when it was the liberal representatives in Congress and the Senate, his hateful campaign ads, his lying, his pulling the race card, his failed and out of bounds policies, his extreme spending, his gifts to Solynda and others like it, and my mind just failed me but there are more. He is a con man and he has conned our country. Is that specific enough for her?

      The problem for Obama, and Obama Zombies like Louise, people are at long last paying attention. They don't like what they see. Trillions in debt, 15-18 million unemployed Americans, a president who rules by decree rather than the constitutional legislative process and a President who openly disdains all that America represents. It's not just conservatives who have had enough of Obama. Polls show Democrats are turning against him as well. Obama still has the bloc voting of blacks, hispanics and, of course, gays. But, even with the traditional voting blocs, there is trouble for Obama and the Democrats. So, again, to Dear Louise, its not that people are not paying attention. Au contraire, people ARE paying attention and that is bad news for the Messiah.

      Obummy and his supporters are playing the typical campaign game. When you are an incumbent with no accomplishments of merit spending billions of tax-payer dollars while in office, then the only thing to do is attack your opponent who is far, far more qualified to lead the country. Intelligent voters must arise and see the light! (Note to Louise: No, my dear, that is NOT a racist comment!)

      The race card shouldn't even be in the deck in this instance. If it was as this lady says Obama wouldn't have been in the white house the first time so that shoots that argument down. As far as the upcoming election -- our POTUS is definitely the joker in the deck and the wildest card imaginable -- Great one! Best/Sis

      Okay, I surrender, but I did get involved in a discussion with a liberal this week-end that made me want to scream. I asked him to tell me what he thought Obama accomplished and he started spouting off some garbage about George Bush and the EPA.

      forlanda - Narcissistic personalities never own their own faults and short comings. Obama is an extremist ideologue so yes, he does believe only he has the answers. Listen to his campaign rhetoric. After almost 4 failed years he still says he has the answers.

      Wayne - The race card just pisses me off. People need to recognize that racists come in all colors. Examples: Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and now Louise Lucas.

      I think far too many folks are tired of running for shelter when that card is played and it gets played far too often. When there is no real the race card...that'll get 'em runnin'! Racism works both ways and Ms. Lucas just wore her's all over her sleeve point fingers at people and making accusations because they do not happen to go along with the Obama philosophy. He claimed he could fix it all or "don't give me a second term"....well buddy, that's a contract plain and simple and I intent to try to keep it and give someone else the job. This is not about Romney's qualifications so much as it is about the abject lack of qualifications and leadership on the part of this needs to be over. WB

      The only time I've heard President Obama own up to anything is when he mentioned, at an interview, that his biggest failure was failing to tell more stories (i.e. failing to get his message across)--which means that he truly believes what his doing is right.

      Funny, every time Obama opens his mouth (when he is on teleprompter) out comes a lie - when off teleprompter we actually can get the truth out of him like when he said if the economy doesn't turn around he will be a one term president, or when he told Joe the plumber he wants to "spread the wealth around" or his comments "you didn't build that" The truth is Obama is not a liar - his teleprompter is! He can now blame the teleprompter...along with Bush, the European crisis, the meltdown in Japan - you name it, he even has an excuse for lying to our faces.

      I cannot believe that she still thinks this is a race issue. President Obama himself said he was going to be a one term president if he failed to bring the economy back. His policies have slowed down the recovery. And his lack of leadership seems to re-ignite some form of racial least according to this racist senator.

      I bet you in the next 3 months the mainstream media is going to paint a positive recovering economy as much as it can to help him out. Just this morning I saw a news headline about the housing market finally recovering. I don't know about your area, but in my area I still see homes being abandoned. The news reports of a price increase of 1.4%.

      There is no accounting for stupidity and we have an abundance of it in this country. I am beginning to realize that it is a waste of time trying to change the hearts and minds of an intractable public. Up useful, interesting and awesome.
