With 67% of Polled Voters Believing Obama’s Gay Marriage Epiphany was PURELY Political, Is his Campaign Coming Apart?

It’s only Tuesday, but it has already been a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week for the Obama campaign. Saddled with increasingly bad economic data, the campaign has been doggedly trying to change the subject to anything other than jobs and deficits. We’ve been treated to a mythical GOP “war on women”, a “debate” on birth control, a “road to Damascus” moment on gay marriage, an “expose” of Romney “bullying” in high school, and the burning question of who is a better pet owner. Unfortunately for Obama and his allies in the media, none of it is working.
Yesterday’s CBS/NYT poll makes it very clear that voters care about only one thing: The Economy. The only other issues that registers in the double-digits? Government spending and deficits–not exactly a winning issue for Obama. Not only do voters not care about the social issues Obama and the media are fixated on, there are signs that focus is backfiring. The biggest shift in voter sentiment in the CBS poll was among women, who, in just one month, shifted their support from Obama to Romney. In April, Obama had led Romney by six points among women. Today, women prefer Romney by two points.
More troubling for the White House is that 67% of registered voters believe his “conversion” on gay marriage, which sent coastal hearts aflutter, was based solely on politics, rather than any personal conviction. This is damning for a politicians whose meteoric rise was based largely on his being “above” politics. It is an Exocet missile to his entire political narrative.

Stay with this — the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events.
The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general..
The Grandmother replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:
‘ polio shots
‘ frozen foods
‘ contact lenses
‘ Frisbees and
‘ the pill
There were no:
‘ credit cards
‘ laser beams or
‘ ball-point pens
Man had not invented:
‘ air conditioners
‘ clothes dryers
‘ and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
‘ man hadn’t yet walked on the moon
Your Grandfather and I got married first, .. ….. … And then lived together..
Every family had a father and a mother.
Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, “Sir”.
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.”
We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.
Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.
We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege…
We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.
Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.
Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.
We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios.
And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.
If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘ on it, it was junk
The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam….
Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.
And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . .. . But who could afford one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In my day:
‘ “grass” was mowed,
‘ “coke” was a cold drink,
‘ “pot” was something your mother cooked in and
‘ “rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.
‘ “Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,
‘ ” chip” meant a piece of wood,
‘ “hardware” was found in a hardware store and
‘ “software” wasn’t even a word.
And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap.
How old do you think I am?
I bet you have this old lady in mind….you are in for a shock!
Read on to see — pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.
Are you ready ?????
This woman would be only 59 years old.

IF ANYONE HAS AN
ANSWER I WOULD
LOVE TO HEAR IT
This is too true to be funny.
The next time you hear a politician use the Word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about Whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending
YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were Living in the Stone Age.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet. No one walked on the earth.
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, At the rate our government is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain…
let’s take a look at New Orleans ..
It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
Mary Landrieu (D)
Is presently asking Congress for
250 BILLION DOLLARS
To rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number…
What does it mean?
Well … If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman, and child)
You each get $516,528.
Or… If you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
Or…. If you are a family of four…
Your family gets $2,066,012.
Washington , D.C
Are all your calculators broken??

We had absolutely no national debt…
Can you spell ‘politicians!’
And I still have to
I hope this goes aroundthe
U S A
At least 100 times
What the heck happened?

This comment was posted at a CNN article:
Social Security established in 1935, 74 years to get it right and it is rife with fraud and broke.
Fannie Mae established in 1938, 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
War on poverty started 1964 and after 45 years and 1 Trillion of taxpayer money confiscated each year and transferred to the “poor” and they only wants more and more.
Medicare and Medicaid established in 1965, 45 years to get it right and it is rife with fraud and broke.
Freddie Mac established in 1970, 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. The D.O.E. has ballooned to over 16,000 employees that do not produce anything at a budget of $24Billion a year and we import more oil than ever. After 32 years to get it right, the DOE is an abysmal failure.
The U.S. government has failed in every “government service” that they have shoved down the throats of the American people, while overspending our tax dollars AND THERE ARE STILL SOME AMERICANS OUT THERE WHO THINK THE CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT CLOWNS IN OUR GOVERNMENT CAN BE TRUSTED TO TAKE OVER 1/6TH OF OUR ECONOMY AND RUN A NATIONAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM. UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Christmas season has passed. We’ve shared that special time with our families… those moments that sometimes are far too infrequent, those moments that should not just be experienced on special occasions. For the JAMES family, the season has been replete with the memories of the past as well as the dreams of the future, knowing the blessings that are before us in this great New Year.
The following is a conclusion excerpt from an article by Robin of Berkeley. From her Jewish roots perspective, she gives a great understanding of God, Politics, Class, and Unification:
Even though I didn’t know the right words, or the hymns, or how to pray, it didn’t matter. All the differences among people – race, class, politics, even religion — vanished. Faith, I realized, is the ultimate uniter.
And in a heartbeat, I understood why leaders from Marx to Mao try to keep people away from God, and why they will always fail. I flashed to an image of those mothers who somehow find the superhuman strength to lift up a car and free their children.
On Christmas Eve, I learned that this same unstoppable power exists inside all of us, especially when we stand together. As Jesus himself taught, faith the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain.
