Zogby International Polling came out earlier this week, and shows what I've been saying all along...voters in general, Obama voters in particular, in vast numbers are uninformed dolts. They get what little knowledge they have of politics from the MSM, the 3 major networks, MSNBC, CNN, and the various left wing web news outlets like AP. The truth be known, I am sick of hearing about Obama, the retreads, and the elections. But one last time, lets give it a go...then I, along with the rest of you, will see what happens come January 20, 2009.
Last week on You Tube this little ditty was released showing a few Obama voters and their knowledge, or lack of same:
Now without a doubt you could pick and choose any group of voters to sound this stupid and uninformed....but Obama voters are so much more fun...seems the most they know about the election is what they have been spoon fed about Sarah Palin. The Zogby post-election poll of Obama voters seems to bear this out....John Zogby, along with Scott Rasmussen have a track record better than most when it comes to picking election results beforehand.....so I take this breakdown to heart....knowing Obama voters, just aren't very bright:
The Zogby Results:
512 Obama Voters interviewed from November 12-15, 2008:
97.1% graduated from High School----55% from College(so they picked out the "smarter, most educated" it seems).
Results from 12 questions:
57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress(a 50-50 chance)
71,8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign for President because of plagiarism of someone elses work(25% chance by just guessing)
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Hussain Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot(25% chance without help of getting this right)
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would bankrupt the coal industry, and make energy costs "Skyrocket"
and 56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of 2 former members of the anti-us radical group "The Weather Underground"
They did better on the following questions however:
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which the GOP spent $150,000 on clothes
Only 6.2% failed to know that Sarah Palin's teen daughter was unwed and pregnant
However 86.9% thought that Palin said she could see Russia from her house, even though that was Tina Fey on SNL who said that.
only 2.4% got at least 11 of 12 correct and less than 1%(0.5%) got them all right
So next time some elite left wing snob tells you how educated and enlightened the Obama and Liberal voters are...tell them BULLSHIT!
Ohio State 42 Michigan 7
As long time Ohio State football fan, the above score would usually make my week....the rivalry with hated Michigan aka: The School Up North(as Woody Hayes called the Wolverines) was/is a focal point late in November...a couple of thing tarnished "The Game" this season.
First off, UM stinks. They got a new coach, Rich Rodriquez, but by announcing the big changes to a "spread" offense, he lost not only seniors to graduation, but many of the returning regulars who know they would not fit into that type offense...Michigan was 3-8 going into yesterday's game, and will finish with a losing season for the first time since I was in High School...1965.
The other thing that has taken the shine off the game from a local standpoint, is "The Vest"...head coach of Ohio State, Jim Tressel. After yesterday's win, JT has beaten UM 7 of 8 seasons, won the Big Ten 4 straight years, defeated Michigan 5 straight times, been to 3 National Championship games, and won 1(he and the Buckeyes did get their heads clocked by SEC teams the past 2 years however).His record from all accounts is better than even Woody amassed during his quarter century at the helm(except those 5 National Championships, top that Tressel).
The problem locally however is his treatment of Todd Boeckman, a local kid frm St. Henry. Boeckman joined the Buckeyes 6 years ago as a Grey Shirt, then a Red Shirt(meaning not playing but attending classes fo r2 years) before becoming eligible to play...he spent 2 more years on the bench, behind Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith, before getting his chance to start last season....he led OSU to the Big Ten Title, and the NC game...he was first team all league....this year was his to start and train and tutor world class Freshman Terrell Pryor, who would take over next season. Seem Tressell had made Pryor some promises, and after the crushing loss to Southern Cal, "The Vest" tossed Todd under the bus and crowned Pryor as the king at QB....a few wins over bad teams and a ugly loss at home to Penn State, didn't change Tressell's mind. Pryor was his QB, even though he stunk up the field for most of the season...yesterday was a prime example...against a bad Michigan Defense, Pryor went 5 for 13 passing with 2 TDs and a interception...he "rushed" backwards for minus 7 yards on 8 runs. Numbers that would have gotten Boeckman booed and taken from the line-up....but not Tressel's gawd given savior, no way...The Vest is never wrong...and never is at fault, just ask him.
So Pryor stinks up the season, and the massive ego of Jim Tressell is still intact...Todd Boeckman did get in for his final curtain call yesterday...he went 3 for 3 with a Touchdown. Next up for OSU will either be the Orange Bowl or the Capitol One Bowl....Penn State goes to the Rose Bowl with the head to head tiebreaker over OSU.
So, I remain an Ohio State fan, but Jim Tressell, is nothing more than a used car salesman...and right now car sales are down. As far as Boeckman, he'll get drafted in the NFL...and hopefully he'll have a few choice words about Tressell when the bowl season is over...but don't count on that, Todd has far too much class...I coached baseball against him, my youngest son Hal, played baseball against TB, and I officiate several games in all 3 of my sports at St Henry(Todd's dad Tim is the former football coach with 3 state titles, and current Athletic Director at SH), so as I said, my view is biased. The same class shown by Todd Boeckman cannot be said for OSU's resident man in the vest. Like used cars, Jim Tressel is still selling used BS that some of us aren't buying.
Enjoy your Sunday
