Ladies and gentlemen, the president of Amurrica …
In the National Journal, Ronald Brownstein more accurately describes Obama as the president of the “Blue Wall.” So what is this “Blue Wall” that is responsible for the first gay president among other objectionable things?
“Central to this role reversal is the rise of what I’ve called the “blue wall”: the 18 states that have voted Democratic in at least the past five consecutive presidential elections. Democrats have not won that many states so often since Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman carried 22 in each election from 1932 to 1948.
The blue wall encompasses the 11 states from Maryland to Maine (except New Hampshire); the three West Coast states; and Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Hawaii (plus the District of Columbia).”
The “Blue Wall” is The Left Coast (California, Oregon, and Washington) plus Hawaii, the Upper Midwest (Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, and Wisconsin), and the Northeast minus New Hampshire (DC, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut).
Note: I’ve said repeatedly that my embrace of secession will be considered ridiculous until the day it isn’t.
The “Blue Wall” gives Obama 242 of the 270 votes he needs to win the White House. Therefore, anyone who claims that the “Blue Wall” is not the center of the problem that is dragging the rest of the country into the dystopian future is blowing smoke up your ass.
Think about it: all that the Democrats need to do to have an electoral lock on the White House is to hold the “Blue Wall” states and use immigration to expand the “Blue Wall” into Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada while changing demographics put other states like Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida into play.
