I’ve been saying for a while that anyone trying to get you to worry about the presidential election (Webster Tarpley) is deliberately distracting you from what is going on now. The election is a sham. There is no real election. Obama’s left cover is serving them well and they will continue it for another 4 years, keeping the “progressives” in check behind the “we have to support his agenda” mask while they bomb Yemen, Syria, Libya (some more to wipe out the Green Resistance), Somalia, and eventually Sudan. The crippling austerity measures will “automatically” fall into place during the lame duck session of congress and the left will curl up into the fetal position rocking themselves to sleep while repeating the mantra “he is playing 3D chess while everyone else plays checkers”
Don’t worry about Romney. As I said before, he was picked to lose just like McCain was before him. They don’t like having to rig elections with their Diebold machines… to much heat after 2000 and 2004… so now they pick the least popular person they can and then set out to make him even more unpopular. That’s the trick these days.
You could fix that easily with a printed receipt and changing the laws they put in place to keep from having to show the software that actually counts the votes, but that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. Oddly enough, listen to Jimmy Carter’s recent comment about another country’s election system…
“Speaking at an annual event last week in Atlanta for his Carter Centre foundation, the politician-turned philanthropist (Jimmy Carter) stated, “As a matter of fact, of the 92 elections that we’ve monitored, I would say the election process in Venezuela is the best in the world.”
Venezuela has developed a fully automated touch-screen voting system, which now uses thumbprint recognition technology and prints off a receipt to confirm voters’ choices.” Global Research
Though I’ve been saying this for a while now, today I got some confirmation from an unexpected source; neocon apologist David Brooks on Meet the Press.
Brooks was lamenting the fact that Mitt’s campaign is tumbling down the sewer pipe and that he wasn’t very popular to start with. What a surprise. You picked a vulture capitalist to represent your party when the entire country knows that the vulture capitalists are the ones who deliberately wrecked the economy. What a shock that he wouldn’t be very popular among the working class republican voters. Then, to top it all off, the vast useful base of the religious right was asked to get behind… a Mormon. Hmm… I wonder why he isn’t that popular.
“Look at his high unfavorable ratings,” host David Gregory said. “At 50%. The highest of any candidate running in recent memory. This is an image problem that his philosophical statements in this speech in May to fundraisers only exacerbates.” Huffington Post
Of course his statements exacerbate his image problem. They are DESIGNED to. Who do you think filmed that little “47%” comment back in May in the first place and then arraigned to have it leaked? The Obama campaign?
Brooks was citing the Pew Research Center’s study on candidate popularity which clearly shows just how unpopular the republican candidate is. Well, there is a reason for that… they need Obama to appear to “win” so they have to put someone even MORE unpopular up against him for that too happen. And Brooks is certainly “in on it” and thus he is simply doing his part to sell the narrative.
It’s not only that Romney isn’t popular and he never really was (Santorum would probably have won the nomination if it weren’t for two things; 1. Diebold unaccountable electronic voting machines in the primaries and 2. Ron Paul helping take votes from him which ultimately aided Romney) the fact is, he’s been steadily throwing the election since becoming the presumptive nominee.
“Romney’s 47 percent comments added fuel to that fire. After his comments were leaked on Monday, Brooks conceded that he sees the GOP presidential hopeful as a “kind, decent man” running a “depressingly inept presidential campaign.”" Huffington Post
Personally I think Obama’s disapproval rating is much higher than 42% and Romney’s higher than 50. My guess is, if we were to ever see real numbers on the turnout of this upcoming election, it would be the lowest in recorded history in this country which should qualify it to be voided, but thanks to Diebold and the Help America Vote Act of 2002, you will never know how few eligible people actually take part in what we laughingly call our “democracy”.
So don’t worry about Romney folks. It’s another round of President Peace Prize you have to worry about. Another 4 years of the controlled opposition left and the limited hangout echo chambers sitting around spinning up some kind of justification for their fascist hero and his latest betrayal. That and the pending Greek style austerity measures and the privatization of everything under the sun. That’s what you have to worry about. Romney is killing Romney’s chances just as the script dictates.
