News Flash: RINOs will try to re-elect Obama in 2012
Canada Free Press ^ | 2010-12-27 | Jerry McConnell

Posted on 12/27/2010 10:23:34 AM PST by rabscuttle385

(snip)

Candidates, whether RINO or socialist liberal Democrats in 2012 from those other New England states as well as others nationwide will be targeted, not only by the TEA Party groups, but the general public who were just getting warmed up in 2010 when they caused Obama to cry out that they, the liberal Democrats, got “shellacked”. It will happen again; mark my words. The public is finished with extremist liberals.

There have been rumors and whispers of a possible new home for disaffected RINOs and liberal Democrats to form a what is privately being called a “centrist” third party. How in anyone’s imagination ANY liberal or RINO could be termed as being centrist, is so far out of touch with reality as to be a non-starter. Those types are not known for their stability or staying home. So ‘centrist’ or ‘shotgun’ may be thrown around a lot in the coming months.

As Ben Johnson states in “FLOYD REPORTS” ‘RINOs Plan a Third Party’. “It is further evidence some RINOs would rather wreck the Republican Party and let Barack Obama cruise to a second term than share “their” party with its grassroots activists.” He goes on to say however, that “Their likely beneficiary is New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent… whose multi-billionaire’s financial heft – and that alone – makes him a viable national player.”

I’m not worried about Barry’s re-election. When the US dollar is dumped as the world reserve currency in the next few weeks the resultant hyper-inflation and food riots will end his chances.

It is my take that a Bloomberg candicacy would hurt Obambi more than the GOP standard bearer.

Seriously, how much of the GOP outside of New York would flock to his candidacy? But maybe it would give "respectable" liberals an excuse to vote against Obama without having to vote for the GOP standard bearer.

Perhaps Bloomberg is counting on his Muslim base to support him as thanks for his supporting the Ground Zero Mosque. Ya think?

Mr Grassley and friends have already advanced that goal way down the field. From a zero change of reelection it is now better than fifty fifty he is reelected.

If he can't handle the job without calling in an impeached has-been then why would anyone even consider re-electing him?

There are no whispers and rumors on this. These clowns are right out in the open on this third party movement.

Mr. McConnell is very sure of himself. But he's a lot more wrong than right.

Just as an example: Will liberals really take another shellacking in '12? Possibly. Or maybe not. It depends on what happens over the next several months.

The Dems are already painting the House Republicans as stupid and irresponsible, with no discernable response from the GOP. The Republican majority in the House will be negated by the Democrat majority in the Senate, and the Democrat in the WH. The Republicans will never get anything big passed in that environment, and in the battles that will ensue the Senate, WH, and their allies in the Media will be working hard to make the GOP look bad in every battle.

Barring a major financial collapse, I think the liberals will probably break even in '12.

Barry is a one term catastrophe. His only chance of stopping his administration’s collision with reality was a Republican House and Senate. He didn’t get it. Not even his teleprompter can save him.

They’ll run Romney and possibly McCain again to pollute the primaries once more. I just wonder what token Conservatives they will get to run to split the vote.

Maybe I'm not too up-to-date on this, but I've never heard much talk about Muslims as a significant voting bloc in NYC. In addition, Bloomberg has three more years to go in his third term, and he had to bend the law to achieve that third term. At present, it would seem unlikely that he'd be running for a fourth, so electoral support of the NYC Muslims doesn't seem to be a factor here.

Possibly it's more a matter of "making nice" to the Muslims in hopes that they might be deterred from more terrorist acts in NYC.

If anyone is thinking about Bloomberg as third party candidate for president in ‘12 to boost the ‘Rats’ chances, forget about it. He'd siphon off more votes from the ‘Rats than from the GOP, because, regardless of what he may label himself, he's always been a ‘Rat and has governed in NYC as a ‘Rat.

Maybe it was bound to happen. The two major sides have been drawing farther apart, leaving a gaping hole in the middle.

Hey! I can make up crap as well as the next guy.

Though if the dollar gets replaced we are in for a world of hurt. Just like happened to Britain when the pound got replaced by the dollar.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office “went to great lengths” to help the developers of the proposed Ground Zero mosque, including drafting a letter addressed to the community board on their behalf. The New York Daily News reports: A flurry of emails released by City Hall revealed Hizzoner’s brass coached the Imam pushing to build the mosque, Feisal Abdul Rauf. At one point, Community Affairs Commissioner Nazli Parvizi even drafted a letter for Rauf’s wife, Daisy Khan, to send to Community Board 1, which was voting on the project.

Perhaps it's the Mayor "making nice" to Muslims in hopes that they might be deterred from more terrorist acts in NYC.

Hmmmmmmm.....sounds an awful lot like Neville Chamberlain-----now discredited by history.

UK PM May 1937 to May 1940. Chamberlain is best known for his "policy of appeasement" toward Hitler, and for his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938, handing over the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany.

Is Bloomberg handing over Ground Zero to Muslims?

Bloomberg’s only a RINO in the sense that he stopped calling himself a member of the Democratic Party in order to get Rudy’s imprimatur on his candidacy. :’) In 1971 Mayor John Lindsay switched from Republican to Democrat in order to pursue the 1972 presidential nomination. It may be wrong to extrapolate from those two switcheroos separated by 30+ years, but it appears that in NYC party labels mean little. Thanks justiceseeker93.

1. Bloomberg is not a registered Republican. He just purchased the nomination. (Bronx GOP county committee got like 50K. I think Queens got the best deal with a new office and money!)
2. Bloomberg would not take votes away from a Republican. He is an elitist liberal from NYC.
3. I'd say competence is his keay selling point, but he seems to be following Mayor Lindsey on the current blizzard. Manhattan is poorly cleared and the outer burroughs are buried. Not completely his fault, but he'll be blamed.

Doubt it. I think he's an Islamophile, to some degree.

I remember that before the attempted Times Square bomber was IDed and caught, the megalomaniac midget bleated that the near-bomber could be anyone. Even someone disappointed in the new health care deform bill.

Thanks rmlew. He’s got the money to buy his reelection, and the lib power elite of NYC and the region will fall in behind in support of him.

Don’t see how ‘Bammy loses in 2012.

He has been the best thing for DC since the New Deal. More power has accrued to DC in 2 years of ‘Bammy...than in the previous 234 years put together. He has ‘gifted” away more of our treasure to his henchmen and supporters than all other presidents in history put together. That represents a reservoir of “goodwill” that will find absolutely NO major players in US or International powers on the other side of him in 2012.

Unless there is an absolutely unprecedented grass roots, highly motivated groundswell in Flyover Country that generates hereto for unseen numbers of voters AND the institutional corruption of the vote that characterizes many Red States suffering Blue representation is dealt with ahead of time, he will be insurmountable.
