the Obama-phone lady in Cleveland. She is most certainly a card carrying member of that 47% that Mitt Romney wrote off, and writing folks off like this is fairly logical:
Bag Lady: "Everybody in Cleveland no minority got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know. He gave us a phone, he gonna do more.
Guy: "How'd he give you a phone?"
Bag Lady: "You sign up if you on food stamps, you on social security, you got low income, you disability."
Guy: "I have a question, what's wrong with Romney again?"
Bag Lady: "Romney, he sucks. Bad."
Turns out, she is paid by the local SEIU chapter $11.00 an hour to show up and chant Obama slogans and raise awareness of the plight of the average Obama supporter. It's also very, VERY likely that Barack Obama cannot count on her vote. This woman is so ignorant, it's painful to watch this video, much less listen to her screeching voice (like fingernails on a chalkboard). Does this woman strike you as somebody who will get up off their couch, shuffle on down to the polling place, wait for an hour or two in line just to vote for Obama?
Does this woman strike you as someone who feels a pride in her ability to keep herself informed of the issues, and that her vote is a civic duty that must be honored every election?
Unless the SEIU personally comes to her front door, pays her in cigarettes and whiskey, and hauls her to the polling place and watches to make sure that she actually casts a vote, it is almost a certainty that Obama will not receive her vote this election. She will blow off inconveniencing herself by voting to catch 'Dancing with The Stars," "the X-factor," or some other bilge that passes for television entertainment these days.
And that is a big problem for Obama. He caters to a constituency that are the dumbest of the dumb, the laziest of the lazy and the most useless of the useless.
Good luck with that strategy, Barry. I think that this time around, a landslide is in your future, and not in your favor.
