Conservative Gary Bauer Says Obama Will Get His Votes From People On Welfare

Sounds racist if you ask us. Is he sayin’ a black man can’t win an election without using “hood” tactics? This guy can’t be serious trying to make it seem like Obama is only getting love from folks on welfare? We call bullisht.

Conservative pundit Gary Bauer, the former president of the Family Research Council, which puts on the Values Voter Summit each year, told the crowd at the 2012 conference Friday that it needs to turn out in great numbers to defeat President Obama’s army of welfare recipients and fraudulent votes.

After his speech, Bauer told TPM “voter fraud is rampant in urban areas” and he expected that to help Obama.

Bauer also told TPM that “there are a lot of people who will vote this November because they depend on government largesse,” meaning checks from Washington. He expects those voters to go Obama as well.

“They will vote for their own perceived interests, which is they don’t want anybody cutting back the size of the checks,” Bauer said.

On stage at VVS, he made a similar case, but said hard-working Americans will turnout in stronger numbers.

“There’s a lot of people out now around America who depend on checks from their fellow taxpayers being in the mailbox every day,” Bauer said. “They will turn out in massive numbers, but so will the entrepreneurs, the small businessmen and women, the military families, the soldiers in harms way, the millions of Americans that want to hope again.”

That last set of voters, Bauer said, will turn things for Romney.

As for voter fraud, Bauer claimed Republicans will have to contend with lots of fake votes from the big cities. But he said those Obama votes won’t be enough either.

“My prediction is after all the votes are counted — even the dead votes of Democrats in Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland — I predict that we will win, that this nightmare will be over and America will finally be on the road to recovery,” Bauer said.

Bauer was focused on the types of votes he said Democrats rely on, but his talk about people who rely on “government largesse” is not far from the mainstream Republican view of the election. Mitt Romney has said several times that Obama is creating a “culture of dependency” in which more and more people become reliant on government checks.

Hopefully HARD Working people know better than to vote for Robney, cuz all he’s gonna do is cut taxes on the rich to the point that they’ll wish they were getting welfare checks!

    Before these commentaries become a race war, let us stop and read the article carefully. He stated that welfare people would vote for Obama and that there is voter fraud going on. That being said, welfare recipients by and large are White. Black DO NOT make up the majority of people on welfare. As far as his statements on voter fraud, I feel it is a tactic to justify the purging of votes in heavily Democratic areas. While you may not agree with his opinions, they are more ignorant and misinformed, but they are not racist. Play your race card another time.

      I find it interesting that you should mention what you did. True, there are more whites on welfare than blacks but that is not the picture that republicans want to be known. They have constantly attempt to make people believe with their attacks on the poor that the “black woman with six kids driving a caddy is on welfare”. Many poor to middle class racist and otherwise misinformed whites believe this.

      As far as the alleged “voter fraud laws”, these are not just directed towards blacks but are directed towards the elderly and college students as well, who in the majority of cases identify themselves as democratic voters. This is a direct attack on American’s right to vote and it is being fueled by the republican party so that they have a chance for mitt to win the presidency, hell some of them even admitted to it.

      My question to you is, why is it that everytime that blacks are attacked either directly or indirectly white thinking people such as yourself are quickly to condemn them as “throwning the race card”. I guess blacks in this country are not permitted to complain about the obvious social injustices like other groups and should just “suck it up?” ………I don’t think so, Hommey don’t play that, you clown!

        It seems that the wrong people are being called racists. The only time black people are mentioned is by the person who wrote the article and the people who chose to comment. I don’t see anywhere that Gary Bauer said anything about black people. You must believe that black means welfare and you are a racist if you do. You made the asumption and put up a stereotype for who would be on welfare and then made other assumptions to justify your view. I refuse to lump my people into that catagory of welfare. We must start to deal with facts and words not with our assumptions. We are a great people and need to behave and think in ways that symbolizes our strong, proud roots.

    “Another old, white, and not too bright ignorant fool! I have news for everyone they already get welfare, it’s call corporate welfare..the u.s. government spends more on corporate welfare than social welfare but you would not know that by listening to idiot’s like this Gary Bauer,the GOP, and tea party which is all one and the same. They spend, spend, spend, spend, and spend some more on corporate subsidies the traditional theory pushed by the old, white, and not to bright campaign is that cutting social programs is the way to prosperity, but that can’t be true since the bulk of spending is tied up in corporate welfare. Most people out there are clueless and buy into the fairy tale of it’s the people on welfare or any social program that is sucking the system dry and taking all the good people (whites) of this country’s tax dollars, while the crooks like (Bauer) in the brooks brothers suits live it up with our tax dollars. The tax payers often end-up paying for many things that we donot benefit from at all. They claim the old, white, and not to bright that they donot want we the people to have a dependence on the government but guess what? It’s ok for the U.S. government to spend more and more on corporate welfare. So let’s break this down: It is ok for politicians, the big banks, members of congress and big corporation, and let’s not forget wall street to have a dependence on the money of the tax paying american’s. As fools like Bauer want you too believe, a hand-out is fine as long as the hand reaching into your pocket’s is corporate america ain’t that a kick in the head? The only this americans like (Bauer) values is the rich staying rich off the sweat and blood of the rest of americans.All i can say to the people out there who buy into this bull Sh$it is….YOU POOR SACRIFICIAL LAMBS.
