President Barack Obama continued to have trouble on Tuesday performing in Democratic primaries in traditionally conservative states, barely eking out wins in Kentucky and Arkansas.
The president didn’t even have an opponent in Kentucky, but with 99 percent of the vote counted, Obama took just 57.9 percent of the vote, with the remaining more than 42 percent of ballots cast for “uncommitted.”
In Arkansas, with 70 percent of the vote tallied, Obama nabbed just 59 percent of the vote. His opponent there, John Wolfe, was able to take 41 percent of the vote at that point, according to The Associated Press.
Yes, because here in Bizzaro World, winning 57 percent or 59 percent of the vote counts as “barely eking out” a win as opposed to the landslide it is in reality…
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that Obama’s showing in Arkansas wasn’t a slap in the face to him, but again it doesn’t count as “barely eking out” a victory, nevermind that Mitt Romney still couldn’t lock 70 percent of the vote against three guys who dropped out of the race, all three of them total clowns mind you, without the local press (and apparently politico) trying to embarrass him with shitty writing that is supposed to pass for journalism.
I used to think reporters were, with a few exceptions, the laziest pack of morons on earth. This week I downgraded my opinion.
