For the first time, I have come to realize that my prediction that Obama would win a second term could be wrong. I was pretty damn certain that the Dictator-in-Chief would continue on for another four years of tyranny but contrary to my expectations (or lack thereof), Mitt Romney could win this thing. In many ways, this presidential race could be Romney’s to lose. The tables have certainly turned and it is now Mr. Mittens who is taking the world by storm and garnering the support from just about everyone still not blinded by Obama’s fading charisma and charm. Romney also has the benefit of capitalizing on the fact that many liberals are threatening to stay at home on election day in protest of their distaste for Barack Obama. My how the mighty have fallen and my how the people are so quick to switch out one tyrant for another with the belief that things will actually change.
To start, this week alone there were five more primary contests held. Mitt Romney swept all five, leaving Ron Paul in his dust. The potential president won a monstrous amount of delegates just in California. Keep in mind that last week he already received enough delegates to win the nomination of the Republican Party. On top of that, he also won New Jersey, New Mexico, Montana and South Dakota. Killa Cali gave Romney 169 delegates, Dirty Jersey gave him 50, New Mex another 20 and the southern most Dakota threw him 25. The delegates from Montana weren’t given out yet but that doesn’t even matter, as this shit is most definitely in the bag. Dr. Paul, who has been on a delegate-hunting mission walked away with zero from all five states. Well, this is at least what it says on CNN’s Election Center and a few other sources that have been tracking the stats. So Romney who needed 1,144 delegates to win the nomination, which so many people were convinced he wasn’t going to hit a few months back, is now up to 1,436 with a few states still left to vote.
Another thing that shows that Romney’s chances in November are much better than I originally thought is that in May, his campaign raised more money than Barack Obama’s! This is unheard of, as Obama is a fundraising monster and has been untouchable in his ability to soak up dollars from the dark entities he has colluded with throughout the years. Part of this could be because the big Wall Street banks that flooded Obama’s pockets with cash in 2008 are now writing checks to Mitt Romney. Also, Mitt Romney’s robo-calling Daleks have been harassing the American population into submission in an effort to collect mass amounts of greenbacks. Hell, I got a call at eleven o’clock at night from a Romney-bot, which I believe is illegal at that time of night. That wasn’t the only time though, I have been receiving calls from Romney-bots three-to-four times a week from various phone numbers. Frankly, I am sick of it and in no way whatsoever have ever expressed interest in backing this Latter Day Saint. I wish I knew which campaign or political group gave Romney’s androids my contact info because I’d like to step on their nuts. Besides, harassing the shit out of people isn’t a great way to win them over. Then again, what the fuck do I know, as it seems to be working!
As reported by Reuters:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Republican groups raised more than $76.8 million in May, his campaign said on Thursday, topping the $60 million President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies hauled in.
The campaign and Republican National Committee have $107 million cash on hand, the campaign said.
Is this a trend that will continue into November? Or is this just one fluke occurrence that will see Obama bounce back in June? Either way, this should be taken seriously by the Obama campaign, as the tide is turning financially and public perception will soon follow.
To add to that, the job numbers have been falling and contrary to the media spin, the economy isn’t picking up. Sure, the stock market has a good day here and there but it is usually followed by a sharp decline in a fashion that resembles the saying, “One step forward, two steps back.” Americans are unhappy and dissatisfied, that’s not a revelation – it’s just fact, and as much as Obama points the finger at Bush The Second, people just don’t care. People want results and while Americans aren’t anywhere near as vigilant as they should be, they will easily vote in the next guy to try and come in to remedy our woes. I didn’t think that people would be as impatient with Obama as they have become. I expected the drones and zombies to continue to validate the guy and live in denial over his horrible management style. It’s a rare occasion to see this many Democrats not unified behind their leader. A lot of my Dem friends that once made every excuse in the book for Obama, have now run out of things to say and have openly admitted their complete lack of enthusiasm for the man. However, instead of voting for Romney, they are all tired of the political system and don’t even want to vote. This, of course, will benefit Ol’ Mittens, as he has the GOP lining up behind him, even those who once spit venom in his direction. Then again, this will also benefit Gary Johnson, who is on all fifty of the states’ ballots.
The game has shifted and the presidential race has become much more intriguing. It will be interesting to see where the fundraising numbers are for the month of June, when they come out next month. Will Romney’s trend continue or will Obama bounce back as election day draws closer and closer? I didn’t think it possible for the longest time, but Mitt Romney could win this thing. Either way, we’re still headed down the proverbial path of destruction.
