ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Says, ‘I Dream … Every Black Person in America Vote Republican’ at Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University (VIDEO)
Stephen A. Smith is never at a loss for words and this time nails it 100% …
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said at an Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, “What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican.” Never afraid to tackle controversial topics, Stephen A. Smith may have just given one of his most insightful points of view that even his counterpart on ‘First Take’ Skip Bayless would have to agree with. Stephen A. Smith’s comment makes complete and total sense if you look at it as opposed to the knee-jerk reaction he will get from the LEFT and many blacks. I have said for years, why do blacks vote for just one party, a Democrat party that was far from good to blacks in America, see pre-Civil War. The fact of the matter is, anyone who puts all their eggs in one basket are setting themselves up for failure. Who looks at one car, one house, one computer, one job and says without looking at anything else or questioning anything … I’ll take it.
When a political party knows they have you in your back pocket and knows they can take you for granted and still get your vote, that is true disenfranchisement and you are finished. The Democrat party knows that will get 85-90% of the black vote and not lift a finger for it. It’s expected. The only question is whether black America will listen to Stephen A. Smith’s words.

“What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican,” he said. “Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.”
He also added, “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a damn about you.’ They’re telling the other party ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself ‘disenfranchised’ because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb. The other party knows they’ll never get you and nobody comes to address your interest.”
I would add, if Republicans continue to do the same to Conservatives … Conservativees should do the same and teach the establishment GOP a lesson they will never forget.
Barack Obama is Trumanesque … Obama Loses More House of Representative Seats Than Any President Since Harry Truman
Many have tried to say that Obama was Lincolnesque and Reaganesque, wrong … but he does appear to be Trumanesque!
Never has a narcissist and a bunch of mind numb, Kool-aid drinking robots ever been so wrong.
BARACK OBAMA SETS ANOTHER RECORD: In 2008 Barack Obama was touted as “the one we had been waiting for”. Obama was supposed to be the president that transcended all and was the bridge to the future. WRONG!!! It turned out that Barack Obama has been the most polarizing president and probably the worst US president in modern times. Obama has not just been bad for America, he has been disastrous for his Democrat party. During this past 2014 midterm election Barack Obama lost another 16 House seats. Back in 2010, Barack Obama lost 63 House seats. Form the mathematically, common core challenged, that is a total of 79 House seats. That is the most House seats lost for any president since Harry S. Truman. With House districts being so gerrymandered these days, that is an incredible number of lost seats.
Not since Harry S. Truman in 1950 has a sitting president lost more House seats in two midterm elections
President Barack Obama is about to do what no president has done in the past 50 years: Have two horrible, terrible, awful midterm elections in a row.
In fact, Obama is likely to have the worst midterm numbers of any two-term president going back to Democrat Harry S. Truman.
Truman lost a total of 83 House seats during his two midterms (55 seats in 1946 and 28 seats in 1950), while Republican Dwight Eisenhower lost a combined 66 House seats in the 1954 and 1958 midterms.
Obama had one midterm where his party lost 63 House seats, and Democrats are expected to lose another 5 to possibly 12 House seats (or more), taking the sitting president’s total midterm House loses to the 68 seat to 75 seat range.
Is Swing State of New Hampshire Ready for a Republican Gov. and Vote for Romney over Obama? Romney Leads by 3, Lamontagne by 4
It appears that the “Live Free or Die” state is ready to swing Republican.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads Barack Obama 48% to 45%. Obama won NH in 2008 by 9 points, 54% to 45% over McCain. Now he finds himself behind by 3, what a difference four years makes. Polling at 45% is hardly encouraging for an incumbent candidate.
Mitt Romney has now taken the lead in the swing state of New Hampshire.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in New Hampshire shows Romney with 48% support to President Obama’s 45%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
Also, Republican Ovide Lamontagne finds himself slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan in the NH governors race, 48% to 44%. In 2008, incumbent Democrat Gov. Lynch defeated his GOP rival by a 70% to 28% margin and won by only 7.6% in 2010. Gov. Lynch is not seeking reelection.
Rasmussen Reports’ first look at New Hampshire’s gubernatorial race since the state’s party primaries finds Republican Ovide Lamontagne slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan. A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Granite State shows Lamontagne earning 48% of the vote, while Hassan picks up 44% support. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.
Even though the unemployment rate in the Granite state is lower than the national average, it appears top be going in the wrong direction.
UPDATE I: The Lonely Conservative has linked with a Pennsylvania poll that has a near dead heat between Romney and Obama.
Barack Obama Says … Most People “Would Acknowledge That I’ve Tried Real Hard … Voters Need to Send a Message” … You Mean Like They Did in the 2012 Midterms?
Finally Obama’s 2012 election slogan … “I Tried Real Hard, but Failed – Reelect Obama/Biden 2012 for 4 more Years of Failure”.
Obama stated he “tried hard” … spoken like a man who has never run a company or ever had a real job. It is not about trying President Obama, its about accomplishing something for the positive and the good of “We the People”, not your socialist agenda. You tried, how lame. You were not supposed to try, you were supposed to lead.
In an interview with WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, OH Obama was asked what he would say to Cincinnatians who voted for him the last time and now on the fence, maybe unhappy, its so negative he said he was going to reach across the aisle. Barack Obama answered that most people “would acknowledge that I’ve tried hard” and “Part of what I think needs to happen in this election is the voters once again have to send a message.” Really Mr. President were you trying hard with your 101 rounds of golf and multitude of vacations?
Also, didn’t the American people send you and the Democrats a message in the 2010 midterm elections when the Democrat party was handed a shellacking? The American people sent a clear message that they wanted nothing to do with the Obama agenda and put Republicans in place to block his socialist agenda. The GOP took back the House, nearly won the US Senate, controlled majority of governors with 29 and picked up and unheard of 680 State legislature seats. However, instead of listening to the will of the people, Obama doubled down on his leftist-socialist agenda rather than moving to the center.
From Real Clear Politics:
“I suspect that most people in Cincinnati would acknowledge that I’ve tried real hard, and we haven’t gotten the Republicans to engage on a whole range of issues that, I wish had happened,” Obama said in an interview with WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio.
“Part of what I think needs to happen in this election is the voters once again have to send a message, ‘We want common sense ideas. We don’t folks who are just saying no to everything. Even stuff, traditionally [they] were in favor of,” Obama said.
Yea, he tried real hard with that failed $787 billion stimulus, the never ending unemployment rate above 8%, the anemic job growth, the out of control spending, record number of Americans on food stamps and the lying to the American people that Obamcare was not a tax. He tried alright.
The Youth has lost that Luvin’ Feeling …
A question to the youth of America that supported and campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 … Hows that “Hopey, Changey” stuff working out for ya? In 2008 the youth of America blindly followed the promises, rhetoric and bumper sticker slogans of Obama propelling him into office and actually believing that “we are the ones that we have been waiting for.”
From 2008 to present day, the American youth has learned an inconvenient truth, Obama’s promise of hope, change and jobs was BS. They were repaid for their actions with no jobs. Talk about a buzz kill for any Obama reelection effort. The youth will most likely stay home when it comes to Obama’s reelection and on election day. Presently, only 55% of Americans between the ages of 16 and 29 have jobs. As stated by Weasel Zippers, the economic train wreck rolls on.
In 2008, the youth vote helped sweep Barack Obama into office. Americans 18-29 spread the word on social media, energized fundraising and went to the polls.
In 2012, the youth vote is moving on and throwing those omnipresent “Hope” bumper stickers and t-shirts in garbage bins.
Not because of apathy. Not because another candidate generates more enthusiasm. Not because of his character. Not because they think voting is pointless. The 18-29 vote is up for grabs in 2012 because youth can’t afford cars to put bumper stickers on and those t-shirts are worn out from too many days sitting on the couch unemployed.
Obama used these kids naivety in 2008 and since has done little to nothing to help the energetic, grass roots youth. Not only are barely 50% employed, earlier this year, Americans’ student loan debt surpassed credit card debt for the first time ever. Not to mention the continued increase in debt will be the responsibility you today’s and tomorrows youth. So what do the millennials say … NO BAMA! According to a recent Pew Research Center poll, only 49% of millennial voters approve of Barack Obama, down a whopping 23 points from February 2009.
But while 18-to-29 year-old Americans are reliable Democrats, their enthusiasm for Obama and presidential politics has waned, setting the stage for an uphill struggle to turn out the vote.
Forty-nine percent of millennial voters approve of Obama, according to the Pew Research Center, down 23 points from February 2009. They are also the least interested in or engaged with the current campaign, the study found.
Only 17 percent of millennials said they are following election news closely, while just 13 percent said they’ve given a lot of thought to the candidates, a 15 point drop from the same period four years ago.
