In the Oklahoma primary last week Barack Obama only garnered 57% of the vote, and actually lost in 15 counties, 12 to a pro-life activist and 3 to a state’s Democratic senate candidate from 2010.

What does this tell us? In the Oklahoma primary last week Barack Obama only garnered 57% of the vote, and actually lost in 15 counties, 12 to a pro-life activist and 3 to a state’s Democratic senate candidate from 2010.

What it tells me is that there is a much stronger upwelling of hostility to Obama than anyone in the political world right now imagines. Granted, this is Oklahoma, a very conservative state. Nonetheless, for a sitting President to do this poorly among voters in his own party does not bode well for that President — or his party — come November.

    I refuse to accept that the president has a lock on relection as is being postulated by many media talking heads.

    They base their opinions on increases in government employment numbers and other government supplied information (I do not believe the governments numbers, you know

    they are self serving masters of massage, both parties).

    My fellow Americans can not be that unconcious.

    God help us if they are.

    Understand that my opinion is based on a belief, a growing shaky belief, that our elections are more or less honest and on the up and up.
