Grand Illusion – Mass Delusion

January 10, 2009

Obama Supporters……if the dunce cap fits…—wear it.

Do not despair, it is not entirely your fault.
You were led astray.

“It’s the most disgusting failure of people in our business since the Iraq war,” Halperin [of Time] said at a panel of media analysts. “It was extreme bias, extreme pro-Obama coverage.”

By MSM O-PrOpaganda
Smoke and mirrors
All illusion, no substance.
Swallowed whole.

“There’s a sucker born every second”

Presto-chango
Hopey-Changey has been unleashed upon America.
Gee…thanks for nOthing.

Why Is the Left So Threatened By My Poll? – John Ziegler

What was most remarkable about the left’s extreme reaction to the original Zogby poll was that it was utterly devoid of even the pretense of addressing the real issues that the nationwide telephone survey exposed.

The conclusions that can be drawn from this new poll are multiple and really rather staggering. In general, McCain voters were significantly more well-informed than their counterparts, and there is overwhelming evidence that the gaps in knowledge are directly related to the media sources they were exposed to.

Here are just some of the “highlights” of the Wilson Research Strategies poll of 1,000 voters whose demographic breakdown was an exact replica of the total voting population and whose results totally vindicate the controversial Zogby poll:

* 35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 multiple choice questions correct.
* 18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
* McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.
Obama voters got the “congressional control” question wrong by 43-41.
* Those that got “congressional control” correct voted 56-43 for McCain.
* Those that got “congressional control” wrong voted 65-35 for Obama.
* Those “exposed” to FOX News got “congressional control” correct 64-25 (+39)
* Those ‘exposed” to CNN got “Congressional control” correct 48-38 (+10)
* Those “exposed” to network news got “Congressional control” correct 48-39 (+9)
* Those “exposed” to print media got “Congressional control” correct 52-37 (+15)
* Those “exposed” to MSNBC got “Congressional control” correct 55-35 (+20)
* Those “exposed” to talk radio got “Congressional control” correct 61-29 (+32)
* Voters in the South had the best response rate on “Congressional control” (+22)
* Voters in the Northeast had the worst response rate on “Congressional control” (+9)
* Those “exposed” to FOX News voted 70-29 for McCain.
* Those “exposed” to CNN voted 63-37 for Obama.
* Those “exposed” to MSNBC voted 73-26 for Obama.
* Those “exposed” to network newscasts voted 62-37 for Obama.
* Those “exposed” to national newspapers voted 64-36 for Obama
* Those “exposed” to talk radio voted 61-38 for McCain.
* Those that could associate Bill Ayers’ name/story with Obama voted 52-48 for McCain.
* Those that knew Obama had made negative comments about “coal power plants” voted 76-24 for McCain.
* Those that knew Obama had his opponents knocked off the ballot in his first campaign voted 66-34 for McCain.

* McCain voters did poorly (only 42% correct) on the Keating question and, in general, the voters did universally worse on questions where the negative information was about their candidate.

* Women under 55 did worse than they might have by guessing on four of the thirteen questions yet 95% of them knew that Palin was the candidate with a pregnant teenage daughter. — Even 95% of those in this demographic group who didn’t know “Congressional control” got this question correct.

* Those “exposed” to MSNBC scored 90% correct on the three Palin questions (including an incredible 98% on the pregnant teenage daughter question), while those not exposed to MSNBC averaged 84% correct on those three questions.

A friend likes to remind me that Obama supporters knew a lot of the truth about Obama but did not care. I say they may have, had their media focused at least as much on the negative news on Obama as they had on the positive. Hell I’d settle for half. The liberal MSM not only discounted all negative news reports concerning Obama but in turn attacked the right for even daring to utter such blasphemies.

Then there is the other theory floating around why Obama was voted in…

    Thanks for keeping the light on this one.

    I had an interesting discussion with a liberal in-law over the holidays. I just let him ramble with his pro-liberal, pro-Obama, anti-business rant for a while.

    Instead of pointing out the flaws in his facts and logic, which history demonstrates he would have ignored, I just asked a simple question: How much conservative media do you view or listen to?

    His answer spoke volumes, and he knew it: “None.”

    I pointed out that I consume plenty of liberal media: My Yahoo feed is from Reuters and I updated it many times each day, I read the very liberal Houston Chronicle, etc.

    Does that make me right? No, but it proved beyond all doubt that only one of us takes the time to listen to both sides.
