TIME: Obama Appealed to Low-Information Morons
You gotta hear this. Richard Stengel. You thought it was gonna be your story on the castration guy, right? That’s coming up. You gotta hear this. Richard Stengel, the TIME Magazine guy, the editor. You know, yesterday he was on Today show, announced Obama as the Person of the Year. He said the reason why they named Obama Person of the of Year is because the no-information voters love the guy. They’re transforming America. They actually said this. TIME magazine said it’s remarkable he’s worth being Person of the Year, ’cause he’s the guy that ended up being able, the first politician to get votes from people who don’t care about anything and who aren’t paying attention. That is worth honoring in 2012, almost 2013 America.
That’s what the guy said. I’m not putting words in his mouth. I mean, I’m paraphrasing, but it’s what he said. It’s noteworthy that finally we have a politician who is able to get votes from people who don’t pay attention to anything. If only we had more people who could get the votes of people who don’t know anything, who don’t care about anything, who aren’t involved, the morons, the low-information voter. This guy’s not through. Stengel was on Charlie Rose last night. The more this guy talks, the better it gets. Now, the reason why the first debate actually did not help Romney is because the low-information voters loved Obama appearing out-of-it. That meant, to the low-information voters, that Obama is not a typical Washington politician, that he doesn’t play the game. The fact that he acted like he wasn’t there and couldn’ta cared less whether he was there was an attractive thing to the low-information voter, and that’s why the TIME magazine guy said these are the people that inspired us to name Obama the Person of the Year.
