Obama’s attempts to court women and minorities unfair, says ZeroHedge

Obama’s “surprise” election victory last week has sent Romney supporters into a delusional meltdown. ZeroHedge, a bastion of Wall Street conspiracy theories, has adopted the O’Reilly defence: claiming that Obama voters are moochers who “want stuff”.

There is a rational explanation for the President’s reelection which doesn’t invoke a deep or complex meaning. The only way to explain the outcome is in the simplest and direct prose: the moochers prevailed.

Haha. Obama’s votes came from New York, California, Florida and most of the other populated states. Basically, the part of the country that most of the rest of the world recognises as America. The supposed non-moochers, on the other hand, came from states that most Wall Street types wouldn’t piss on if they were on fire: Alabama, South Dakota, Idaho and so on.

Of course, these are also the types of states that receive the most government spending and pay the least taxes. But none of that registers over at ZeroHedge, where they accuse Obama of cheating by trying to appeal to “women, the youth, blacks, Hispanics and the elderly”, who it says “were all catered to through subtle patronization and outright payoffs”. In other words, “the same tactic employed by the Roosevelt administration when the New Deal got underway”.

Where do they find these nutters? I mean, it’s hard to imagine a reality in which any candidate for president of the United States of America would not try to appeal to voters of all creeds, colours, sexes and ages. Yet this is the fantasy world that many conservatives have created for themselves.

Who will these lunatics vote for after the Republican party panders to Hispanics by picking Marco Rubio as its next spiritual leader?
