Gibson predicts Obama Will Win During Quinnipiac Lecture

Former ‘ABC World News’ Anchor Charles Gibson, lecturing at Quinnipiac University this week, predicts Obama will win the November election.

 

Charles Gibson, the former anchor of “ABC World News,” predicted President Barack Obama will win re-election while lecturing before a crowd of more than 800 on Sept. 20 at Quinnipiac University

          “Folks, Barack Obama is going to win,” Gibson said. “I don’t say that just because Mitt Romney is running an inept campaign which he is. He made a very maladroit statement on the Middle East and his 47 percent on the dole, etc. You now hear backstage rumblings from prominent Republicans who have basically written him off.

"But I say it because Barack Obama won 365 electoral votes in 2008. That’s 95 more than he needed for election. He can lose states like Indiana, Missouri and North Carolina, all of which he won four years ago, and still be elected comfortably," Gibson said. "Every electoral map projection I’ve seen puts 237 electoral votes pretty solidly in the Obama column this year. That means he only needs to pick up 33 more.”

          Watch the entire lecture. Gibson makes his prediction at the 23:10 mark of the video.

Maybe in CT for sure. But nationwide people are waking up to his Marxist redistribution of America's wealth. At least I hope they are. Notice that the Germans focused on the youth who pay NO taxes, Don't necessarily work, live home or on campus, and not in the real world yet, and BHO is also going to colleges and so is his minions. Impressionable young people who really are being indocrinated by their professors who really are not old enough in life to make informed decisions except to vote because they think he's cool. If he really showed his true self- NO ONE would vote for this guy. He is definiately a wolf in sheeps clothing.

In Ads combating Mitt Romney's quote that (Americans aren't better off than they were in 2008). Obama's point only seems to be WHAT is up and coming, even in their own ad Obama's people admit - WE AREN'T THERE YET. Meaning all the jobs he WILL be creating, paying down the debt - WHAT HE INTENDS on doing. Americans need to stop and ask themselves, ARE YOU BETTER OFF NOW THAN YOU WERE IN 2008? Is your JOB as secure as it use to be? Is your pension really going to be there when the time comes to collect? Has your Health Insurance gone up in price and down in service? Has you home decreased in value? Do your children have a good chance of attending college? Will they even be able to get a job after paying for or getting into debt for that degree? As an American do you feel SAFE and SECURE in your own country? Do you TRULY feel you are as FREE as you once were? Do you honestly feel your RIGHTS will be respected or have they been taken away little by little? DO you agree that an AMERICAN PRESIDENT and FIRST LADY should appear on Late Night Talk Shows? Do you agree that an AMERICAN PRESIDENT should apologize to Leaders of Countries that have VOWED TO DESTROY AMERICANS? Are you comfortable with Illegal Aliens receiving Free Health Care, Free Higher Eduction? Are you comfortable with the GOVERNMENT deciding how YOUR health Concerns will be treated?

FORGET THE NEWS REPORTS AND THE MAGAZINE ARTICLES. SIT WITH YOUR OWN CONSCIOUS, PARTY AFFILIATION ASIDE. ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS AND DON'T FALL FOR THE (IT'S BUSH'S FAULT) SCENARIO. BUSH DID NOT GIVE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO CEO'S WITHOUT GUIDELINES OF HOW THE MONEY SHOULD BE SPENT. BUSH DID NOT GIVE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES OVER AND OVER AGAIN, EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE KILLED AMERICANS AFTER EACH PAYMENT. IF IN YOUR HEARTS OF HEART YOU FEEL YOUR LIFE AS AN AMERICAN IS AS GOOD OR BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE 2008, AND YOU LIKE AND FEEL SAFE WITH THE DIRECTION THINGS ARE GOING. IF YOU WANT MORE OF THE SAME THAN VOTE FOR OBAMA. NOT BECAUSE HE IS BLACK, NOT BECAUSE HE IS FOR GAY RIGHTS OR ABORTIONS. PEOPLE WILL LIVE THEIR PERSONAL LIVES REGARDLESS OF WHO'S IN OFFICE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE FREEDOM OF CHOICE AGAIN. YOU NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON THE GOVERNMENT AND HOW MUCH OF IT YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE! IF YOU WOULD LIKE A PROV-EN SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN HANDLING THE COUNTRIES ACCOUNTS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A CHANCE AT THE AMERICAN DREAM AND NOT BE FORCED INTO A GOVERNMENT RUN PIGEON HOLE. VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY OR ANYONE ELSE ON THE BALLOT OTHER THAN OBAMA! EVEN IF YOUR MIND CAN'T WRAP ITSELF AROUND THE INJUSTICE, SOCIALIST REGIME THAT IS IN OFFICE NOW, YOUR GUT MIGHT ALREADY HAVE BEEN WARNING YOU! FOLLOW IT. IF YOU HAVE TRULY GOTTEN A WORRY FREE GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP SINCE 2008 - GOD BLESS AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART. IF YOU HAVEN'T, THAN DON'T VOTE FOR MORE OF THE SAME.

Who cares who wins? Obama's not a president. He's a golfer and ESPN watcher. Romney's won't be president either. He's lazy and inept, as his horrible time as governor in Mass. proves. There is only ONE rule for civics this election: Register to vote and then VOTE AGAINST ALL INCUMBENTS! Regardless of parties, punish everyone who's held office for more than two years, because they helped to gut America and destroy our economy! Rosa DeLauro, most of all! Rosa's been in office 22 years. She has the WRONG kind of experience. In her case, Experience is a mark of a destroyer, a corporate lap dog, a servant of elite special interests of Washington and Wall Street. Let's see Rosa debate Wayne Winsley, face-to-face. She is proud of her record. Let's see her promote why she deserves another 2 years.... After 22 years of hardcore partisan extremism, Rosa has seen to the deindustrialization of America, the bankrupting of millions of people, the loss of half of the middle-class's wealth, the rise of GMO and hundreds of billions of dollars to global agro-corporations, her love affair with ethanol, which caused the spreading of Arab spring revolutions which has killed tens of thousands, "saving" GM at a cost of $50 billion, her appallingly evil banker bailout vote for TARP, her pointless stimulus vote, her "enrich tort lawyers" law known as the Ledbetter act, and on and on and on! A wave of destruction fueled by dirty corporate campaign cash, and its all Rosa's!

What else would you expect a member of the Obama media to say. Has anyone noticed or heard about this arrogant man going on the View so he can get votes while the mideast burns. All this man cares about is himself. The problems of the past week prove how incompetent he is and has been. All he is is a personality boy and that is what he hopes will reelect him.
