Recently Dick Morris had the nerve to insist Barack Obama will lose in a landslide next November. As a service to those who feel better believing otherwise here is a deconstruction of his argument. Relax this will reassure you. Obama is a lock.
Morris is wrong because Obama will win the Catholic vote: BIG. There are only a handful of Catholics (mostly old and not able to get out of bed) who will side with the Catholic Bishops against Obama. Since Obama is fighting to change Catholic doctrine, they will crawl to the polls to show they support Obama not their Bishops –bank on it!
Morris is wrong because the price of gasoline isn’t really a factor in voter’s thinking. The polls showing Obama losing a tiny bit of support over the past month as the price of gas climbs are wrong. Anybody can see that – $6.00 gas won’t be a problem – car pooling is great fun. Obama is cruising to an easy victory – nothing says otherwise.
Morris is wrong because the polls showing a majority of voters hate Obamacare are bogus. Besides, everybody knows hating Obamacare won’t get people out to vote. They did that already in 2010 and people know they made a mistake.
Morris is wrong because Obama’s handling of the coal industry will free coal miners of their guilt over polluting the air. They will be glad to take good paying green jobs instead of digging dirty coal. Plus every American will be glad to pay higher energy prices to help Obama keep his promise to raise energy prices.
Morris is wrong because Obama will win every single Southern state. Southerners will be very impressed with Obama’s great record with our military. Showing Southern voters we have a responsibility to invite the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House and end Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will inspire the military families all over the South to run to the polls to support Obama. It will play especially well in Alabama, Mississippi Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Morris is wrong because there is absolutely no chance that the same voters who threw the Democrats out in 2010 will come back to the polls to vote against Obama – everybody knows that. Besides Obama has made so many very clever moves over the past three years there are now more and more people willing to come out of the shadows admit they voted for McCain and say they wish they had voted for Obama.
There isn’t any reason to think that Obama’s support among 18 to 28 year olds (which is admittedly a bit off right now) won’t come roaring back in November. They can’t get enough of the fun of living in Mom’s basement and playing Monopoly instead of working. They know voting Republican will spoil all that, and Mom just loves having them around anyway.
So those who believe Obama can’t/won’t be beaten in November relax; no reliable data shows otherwise. Catholics don’t care; drivers don’t care, healthcare consumers don’t care, Military families don’t care, in fact nobody cares what the Republicans say or do: Obama is the man! Relax he’s in you’ll be proved right. Fifty seven state land slide here we come!
