Did Obama Cheat to Win in 2012?

Top economist Stan Veuger of the American Enterprise Institute claims that Obama should’ve lost in 2012–and only won because of the IRS’s illegal harassment of Tea Party groups.

Though Congress is still investigating what exactly happened at the IRS–and who was involved–Veuger argues that the dampening effect on the Tea Party in 2012 would’ve been more than enough to throw the election to Obama.

The IRS played a critical role in dramatically slowing Tea Party growth in the run-up to the 2012 election. Starting in mid-2010, shortly before the Tea Party led conservatives to an unprecedented landslide victory in Congress, the IRS decided to single out Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny.

For the following two years, the IRS approved the applications of just 4 Tea Party groups–while sending hundreds of applicants into a byzantine approval process that took months, if not years, and cost many thousands of dollars. Time and money that these groups could have been dedicating towards 2012 election efforts.

Veuger explains how tremendous of an impact that is: “We compared areas with high levels of Tea Party activity [in 2010] to otherwise similar areas with low levels of Tea Party activity, using data from the Census Bureau, the FEC, news reports, and a variety of other sources. We found that the effect was huge: the movement brought the Republican Party some 3-6 million additional votes in House races.”

Obama’s margin of victory–across a much larger electorate–was just 5 million nationwide.

Basically, according to Veuger, “the bottom line is that the Tea Party movement, when properly activated, can generate a huge number of votes-more votes in 2010, in fact, than the vote advantage Obama held over Romney in 2012.”

“The data show that had the Tea Party groups continued to grow at the pace seen in 2009 and 2010, and had their effect on the 2012 vote been similar to that seen in 2010, they would have brought the Republican Party as many as 5 – 8.5 million votes compared to Obama’s victory margin of 5 million.”

Had Obama’s IRS not sucked the life out of the Tea Party movement, it’s possible that Mitt Romney–or perhaps another conservative candidate altogether–would be President of the United States right now, instead of Barack Obama.

  • Short answer, YES 100%

    OBVIOUSLY he cheated! If he was “selected” the first time, he sure wasn’t “elected” the second time.

      I like that one!!

    Obama is a cheater and liar so of course he only won by cheating. He knows no other way.

    There is no doubt in my mind that this is what happened plus the voter fraud cinched it and the Republicans bent over and took it. We should have taken it by force. Obama did not even believe it as he had been actively looking for a new home in Hawaii and HE HAD NO VICTORY PARTY PLANNED! Are people really this stupid? This is why I QUIT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND I WILL NEVER DONATE TO THOSE LOSERS AGAIN! I will donate to individual candidates who are conservative and follow Tea Party Principles. I almost hope there is a war because these Republican fools are letting these communists take over our country. If we wait it just may be too lat so then what?

    I just hope we can get him out of here before his time is up, he lies cheats and steals, and no one and I mean no one is doing anything about it ! It’s like everything is acceptable the arrogance is appalling, I see no one as a candidate as of yet, I’ve been a republican all my life ,but no more, they lie and cheat as bad as the dems! It’s all about greed for them! They should have crashed like the rest of us in 2008!I know God is in control , but having to watch a bunch of heathens destroy our country is devastating!

  • Only an Obama worshipper would believe the regime did not cheat in the election. Dead people voted Illegals voted, some were bussed in where they did not belong, had interpreters to tell some of them how to vote, some voted in more than one precinct, some voted more than once in the same precinct, black panther party was there to intimidate voters. do you think he cheated HELL YES!!! He’s not even a citizen, born in Kenya and raised by marxist left wingers and had radicals for mentors his whole growing up life. The country will be much better off once we get rid of the albatross if we ever do!

    Did he cheat?

    OF course he cheated…..His “regime” is a “Rogues Gallery” of Chicagoland organized crime

    Up to and including the Anti-Semite Hillary Clinton. He had the Mayor of Chicago, the “Terrorist Emeritus” Bill Ayers, Valerie Jarret (an old time Daley cronie) Daley himself, David Axle-Rod (whose building tenant derailed Herman Cain with false allegations and slander, etc. etc. etc

    That combined with the complicit media, Lois Lerner at IRS, the Justice Department with Holder, and the Race baiting and poling place shenanigans of the “new” black panthers….I think it is a safe assumption that indeed he did cheat.

    This is not including the “Obama Phone” made in Mexico (and the illegal campaign contributions of foreign governments) the harassment of the Taxed Enough Already party, and many many others.

    The blood and dirt on his hands started long ago, with his first “political act of treachery”, throwing under the bus his first opponent in Chicago.

    While it would seem easy to criticize the “man” (and I use that term loosely) it is the cadre of evil people around him that call the shots. May as well call her President Jarret, born in Iran……is that enough to tell you of her allegiance? That should not even been legal.

    She is the one who alienated the Oprah from the Obama’s (after incredible publicity there).

    I have never seen him “sworn in” as president live or on tape. He either flubbed the lines or didn’t even swear in. He may not even BE the president legally.

    Wouldn’t that be the kicker. COG in effect and we don’t even know.

    With the green screening going on today in televised political “events” would be surprised if he doesn’t even live in the white house.

    this has been going on since at least G.W. Bush in 2001-2002, probably earlier. Watch SOTU or other addresses to congress. whenever the president is in a known location at a live event.

    I don’t disagree that this is a good form of security (honestly I thought I imagined it when watching Bush)

    But watch closely at the camera angles and shots. no many in field of view. Just saying.

    Whole thing in D.C. is smoke and mirrors.
