By this time, I trust most of you have seen the infamous Mitt Romney video in which he writes off 47% of the voters — especially those of you who watch MSNBC, who’s been replaying it over and over so many goddamn’ times it’s turned into pornographic wallpaper. The ironic thing is that Mittens got it right, but for the wrong reasons.
While it’s certainly true that at least 47% of voters will vote for Obummer no matter what, it won’t be because of the reasons that Mittens cites — decent healthcare and housing, and such. They’ll vote for Obummer in spite of his picking up where Bush left off — in spite of Obummer’s continuing assaults on civil liberties, his attempts to dismantle Social Security and Medicare, his continued mass murder of civilians overseas, and his bailouts of bankers and Wall Street.
No Liberal in this country has to worry about his home being bombed by drones, or being snatched off the street and indefinitely detained because of any threatening dissident activities, or about the lack of a pension or decent health insurance — so, Liberal America can ignore Obummer’s massive crimes at home and abroad and concentrate on your typical standard-issue affluent Liberal issues, such as gay marriage and abortion rights… and, yes, they’ll vote for Obummer, no matter what.
