fail-we-can-believe-in There’s a new website on the net and its from John Ziegler who is working on a film titled, “Media Malpractice… How Obama Got Elected”.  Needless to say, after looking at the website, the video, and the statistics, all I can say is  wow…… people are stupid… uninformed… uneducated.  And I am NOT saying that all Obama voters are stupid, I’m simply saying some of them are, so don’t even go there……  The right to vote comes with an understood responsibility to be informed and to make educated decisions.

But for example, when asked which candidate said they had campaigned in 57 states, the answers were Palin and McCain when in fact it was said by Obama during a speech. [Video]

People had no clue as to who was the majority in congress, but they knew that Palin’s daughter was pregnant.

Additionally, the point of the video is to show how the media influenced the election so obviously there was some “education” however, it was more on gossip issues than on important facts and agenda.

BTW, before reading on, anyone want to buy oceanfront property for $100.00 an acre in Arizona?

From the website:

On Election day twelve Obama voters were interviewed extensively right after they voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign.  These voters were chosen for their apparent intelligence/verbal abilities and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience.  The rather shocking video below seeks to provide some insight into which information broke through the news media clutter and which did not.”

From the Zogby Poll.
   ■  512 Obama Voters polled 11/13/08 – 11/15/08  (+/- 4.4 points)
   ■  97.1% were High School Graduates or Higher, 55% were College Graduates
Results to 12 simple multiple choice questions.
  ■  57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50% chance by guessing)

  ■  81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% change by guessing)
  ■  82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot.  (25% chance by guessing)
  ■  88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket.  (25% by guessing)
  ■  56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
  ■  86.3% COULD identify Sarah Palin as the person who spent $150,000 in clothes.
  ■  93.8% COULD identify Sarah Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter.
  ■  86.9% THOUGHT that Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from her “house”, even though it was Tina Fey who said the statement on an episode of Saturday Night Live.
  ■  Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.
  ■  Only 0.5% got all of them correct ( And one answer was “given” away that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey.”
