Obama-phone lady in Cleveland probably won't vote for Obama

I'm fairly certain that everyone who pays even a slight bit of attention to politics has seen this video:
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? 
Fat chance.
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.

Fredd....EXCELLENT point. As you and I have both pointed out countless times in the past few weeks as the rest of the right continues to scoff over manipulated 2008 based polls, the election this year will be all about enthusiasm. 4 years ago, it was the "cool" thing to do for pieces of trash like this woman, blacks and young people to vote for Obama. All their friends were doing it. Hey why not me! This time, that buzz is gone. Which means they will actually have to get off their couches and go down to the polling place (if they have even registered at all) and actually cast a ballot. Won't happen! On the flipside, you have a mobilized and motivated right wing who has the will and desire to vote. Conservatives are itching to cast that ballot. This divide will decide the election.

Do you think maybe she got a phone?

I think that makes her a phoney.

I remember when I first started hearing this exchange on the radio. I thought it was a horrible parody. Anybody remember Fat Albert? She sounded like a voice from that old Saturday Morning cartoon...

Hack: yup - the enthusiasm gap is huge this time around, but not in Obama's favor.

He no longer can lower the sea levels, heal the planet and feed the multitudes with a single loaf of bread and a fish.

He's been exposed over the last four years as just a hard core liberal socialist who has run out of other people's money.

An amazing piece of analysis because it is evinces on of those hand-to-forehead" gestures where one exclaims "Of course, why didn't I think of that!" Thanks for the intel on that egregious creature being an SEIU hireling.

What a pathetic life she must lead.

You've got a great point. People like this don't make it a habit to do their civic duty. Although, it's been known that SEIU (for example) has paid people to protest. Why not pay them to go to the polls. Maybe some of that billion bucks President Obama is set to raise will be donated for the payoffs. I wouldn't put it past them.

This is the only way socialists, liberals and marxists win today's elections: spend gobs of money bribing, busing and cajoling these pitiful slobs into voting for them.

The left caters and has as its constituency the losers in this country.
