HASN’T HE DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE … SHOULD SOME ONE INFORM OBAMA THAT IT WAS HE WHO DESTROYED THE DEMOCRAT PARTY?
According to The Politico, Barack Obama is retooling hos political operations and PAC’s in order to salvage his legacy and supposedly rebuild the Democrat party. The electoral college landslide victory by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race over Hillary Clinton was a repudiation of Obama and his policies for the last 8 years. Americans finally stood up and said, no more, enough is enough. However, Obama does not seem to have gotten that memo. Maybe its on Hillary’s private server. However, in order to save his legacy, Obama will not go gentle into that good night as most every other preceding president. Instead, the presidency of “I and me” will look to retool his PAC’s to make it once again about him. However, truth be told, it was Obama and his my way or the highway liberal LEFT agenda what decimated the Democrat party in the last eight years where they find themselves in the minority in the House, the Senate, the Governorship’s and the state houses. Oh yeah, and the lost the White House too.
This is what happens when an unqualified individual who is nothing more than a community agitator, a liberal ideologue and who has no respect for the Constitution or We the People operates like a king instead of a president and thinks he can just do everything as he wishes. It is called a failed presidency.
Barack Obama doesn’t want his post-presidency to be all about Donald Trump, but he knows some of it’s going to have to be.
Trump’s win upended his plans for life after leaving office, and people who’ve been talking to him say he’s been quietly sorting out how to honor the tradition of withholding criticism of his successor as he also considers how best to salvage his legacy and rebuild his party.
“The way he views his role is not that he himself, Barack Obama, is going to be out there giving fiery speeches and leading marches, but he wants to play a role in empower and lifting up the next generation of leaders,” said Jen Psaki, his White House communications director and an alum of both his presidential campaigns.
Already, former aides are revamping Organizing for Action, the group formed out of his old campaign structure. No longer about backing up Obama’s agenda in the White House, it will be a nexus for training activists and candidate recruitment, reshaped both by Trump’s win and some of the factors that contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss.
LOOKS LIKE A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE HOPEFUL ABOUT 2017!!!
Yet another story the liberal MSM will not tell you about. According to a new Morning Consult survey, 72% of Americans say they feel hopeful about 2017. One would think that with all the negative media stories of Trump and the unwillingness of the LEFT to accept Trump as president that this number would be a lot lower. But maybe, just maybe the mood of the country is much like the 2016 presidential election … a change and move away from Obama and the Left to the message of hope and Making America Great Gain that won Donald Trump an electoral landslide.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans, or 72 percent of those polled, say they are feeling hopeful about 2017, according to a new Morning Consult survey.
Sixty-one percent of respondents say they are feeling optimistic about the upcoming year, and 51 percent of people are feeling excited.
But half of the respondents say they are feeling anxious about the coming year, according to the poll.
Twenty-three percent reported feeling sad and 19 percent reported feeling angry going into the new year.
Less than half of respondents say they are feeling peaceful or relaxed about the coming year, and a quarter reported feeling indifferent.
Eighty-one percent of Americans say they are concerned about the nation’s political atmosphere, and 64 percent are worried about world affairs.
Still, 55 percent say they think 2017 will be a better year than 2016, with 59 percent saying they expect to do better financially in 2017.
THANKS JILL … DONALD TRUMP CONFIRMED VICTOR IN WISCONSIN RECEIVING EVEN MORE VOTES …
The Wisconsin recount is over and it confirms what we already knew, Donald Trump is the winner. The Wisconsin recount of nearly 3 million ballots ahead of a federal deadline on Tuesday, however, in the end little changed, as Trump adding just 131 votes to his margin. Hillary Clinton gained 713 votes over her previous total, while Donald Trump gained 844 votes in Jill Stein’s failed Green party sham. As CBS reports, this effectively brings Stein’s recount efforts to an end with nothing to show for it.
The results of the Wisconsin recount were finalized Monday, reaffirming Donald Trump’s victory in the traditionally blue state.
The Associated Press reported Monday afternoon that Trump actually picked up 162 additional votes, keeping his margin of victory around 22,000 over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The final results, certified by the Wisconsin Elections Commission, changed by fewer than 1,800 votes.
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith Haults Michigan Recount Charade by Green Party candidate Jill Stein
MICHIGAN PRESIDENTIAL VOTE RECOUNT STOPPED …
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith has sided with a state appeals court Wednesday in stopping the Michigan presidential vote recount. Previously, a Michigan appeals court ruled 3-0 that Green Party candidate Jill Stein should not have been allowed to demand a recount because she is not an “aggrieved candidate.” Gee, really? How would anyone be allowed to claim they were aggrieved in the voting process when they only won 1.1% of the vote? Thus, the recount sham on the part of Green Party candidate Jill Stein is over and it is as it was, TRUMP WINS MICHIGAN!!! In fact, thanks to Jill Stein’s joke recount efforts, Trump picked up even more votes than originally determined.
A federal judge has stopped the hand recount of nearly 5 million ballots in Michigan, a decision that seems to secure Donald Trump’s narrow victory in the traditionally blue state.
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith, who effectively ordered the recount to begin Monday, sided with a state appeals court Wednesday in halting the effort, ABC News reported.
On Tuesday, a Michigan appeals court ruled 3-0 that Green Party candidate Jill Stein should not have been allowed to demand a recount because she is not an “aggrieved candidate.” Goldsmith, after hearing arguments from the state Republican Party and GOP attorney general, agreed.
“Because there is no basis for this court to ignore the Michigan court’s ruling and make an independent judgment regarding what the Michigan Legislature intended by the term ‘aggrieved,’ plaintiffs have not shown an entitlement to a recount,” Goldsmith said.
Gallup Poll: Americans’ Support for Electoral College Increases Greatly Despite Democrat Whining … Up to 47% from 35% in 2011
AMERICANS SUPPORT FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE INCREASES …
According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans support for the electoral college has increases from 35% in 2011 to 47%. In the wake of the 2016 Presidential election that saw Donald Trump win in an electoral college landslide 302-232, where Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, many on the Left are moaning as they cannot accept the election results. As Red State opines, some of that shift can be attributed to increased Republican support in the wake of the election results; it’s not like it spiked in the last year.
Despite Democrat whining as Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, there is a reason why the electoral college exists. The Founding fathers established the Electoral College in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens. There are currently a total of 538 electors, corresponding to the 435 Representatives, the 100 Senators, plus three electors for the District of Columbia as provided for in the Twenty-third Amendment. But of course the LEFT has an issue with a system set up by the Founding Fathers and has served this country well as Libs think that populated states like New York and California are more important than the US citizens in states like Idaho and the Dakotas.
Americans’ support for keeping the Electoral College system for electing presidents has increased sharply. Weeks after the 2016 election, 47% of Americans say they want to keep the Electoral College, while 49% say they want to amend the Constitution to allow for a popular vote for president. In the past, a clear majority favored amending the U.S. Constitution to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system.
This year, for the first time in the 49 years Gallup has asked about it, less than half of Americans want to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system.
The reason for this shift in opinion is clear: In the aftermath of this year’s election, the percentage of Republicans wanting to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote has fallen significantly.
Currently, 19% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents favor basing the winner on the popular vote, down from 49% in October 2004 and 54% in 2011. Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents already widely favored having the popular vote determine the winner and are slightly more likely to do so now than in the past.
Of course the ignorant whiny LEFT want mob rule. Because we all know they know more than The Founding Fathers, sarcasm intended.
