How Did Obama Get Elected?

I know I should lay this issue to rest, afterall it is old news in my book, and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it, but after I viewed clips of this video, which aired on Fox News Nov. 17, I found it rather amusing, and wanted to share it with you. The video originated on Texas Rainmaker's Blog. Click the link to learn more.

Here are the statistics supporting the interviews:

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance 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% chance 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).

And yet…..
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes.

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter.

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we “gave” one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

Again, I want you all to know that I pray for wisdom, courage and strength for our newly elected president, Barack Hussein Obama;Vice President, Joe Biden and all newly elected cabinet members (possibly Hillary??) as they begin to lead our great country. I strongly believe that they will need our prayers.

wow, I did see another similar video where they asked those questions. Have to admit, I am guilty of not knowing some of the answers myself.

Just goes to show you, voters have no clue for the most part. They elect the most hansome, or nice talker, nothing to do with experience or intelligence. Yes, we will ned all the help we can muster with the 'CHANGE' that is supposed to come about. Hold on, its gonna be a wild ride.
