Four years of Carter gave us EIGHT years of Reagan; at this rate, 4 years of Obama will give us..???
one man's opinion...

Posted on 05/26/2010 10:03:57 AM PDT by ken5050

Something to think about this Memorial Day weekend. Obama's one term may well lead to a conservative resurgance in this country, but only if we have the right person in the WH to lead the country. Who will it be??

The political dynamics are the same, as the country is in an even greater "maliase" then during the Carter years, but by this time in Jimmah's term, the nomination was pretty much Reagan's...here, we have no dominant potential candidate. Is it possible that a dark horse will emerge on a white stallion?

Look to New Jersey’s Governor!! A man with spine, guts, and gonads. These traits are in very short supply, in fact, almost extinct in this country and totally gone in DC.

A short list of the very few real leaders we currently have. Please add names so we all know who to support.

Michele Bachmann
Jim DeMint
Allen West

Four years of Obama will get us another four years and maybe a full Communist state.

He is sending troops to the border to help John McLame get reelected. There is some kind of handshake deal since the real McLame wants Amnesty, his current rhetoric is all lies, so if Bambi helps him out then once November is past he will help ram through the final nail in the coffin of freedom.

With amnesty in place 2012 will cement the Dims in power with up to 20 million new Dim voters asking for free stuff.

I love Jindal too, but believe Jindal can not run for President or be VP as his parents were not US citizens prior to Jendal’s birth. Jendal is not a “natural born citizen” but is a US citizen and can serve as Governor and/or in Congress.

There finally seems to be some good prospects growing into the title of dominant candidate. Personally, I’m amazed at what Chris Christie is doing in NJ. Beleive Bachman, Palin, and a few others from the legislative branch have potential. Conservatives with a spine are what is needed.

Hi Friend,
A great ticket for 2012 would be Cristie/West and wouldn’t Sarah make a great Press Secretary? The MSM would go nuts! And every press conference would be a MUST SEE!! :)

Who says it will be 4 years? Why not a shortened term ended by his impeachment.

We were very lucky that time, men like Reagan don't come around very often. Carter was simply an incompetent American, Obama is trying to permanently cripple capitalism and democracy.

The job now will be to start reversing the damage at the grass roots level and grooming leaders for higher positions. It took many years to create this mess and it's going to take many years to reclaim our heritage.

Actually, 4 years of Carter gave us 8 years of Reagan and 4 years of Bush — or 12 years. Then two years of Clinton gave us a GOP Congress for 12 years, from 1994 to 2006. Two years of Obama could give us a conservative Congress for 24 years and four years of Obama could give us GOP Presidents for 16 years — provided the GOP doesn’t self-destruct yet again.

Hopefully a massive purge of politicians who are only looking after themselves and not the country! I hope this adminstartion brings forward those who want to see American’s future bright again. It’s time to quit rewarding failure and put self sufficiency back in it’s prominent place. There will always be poor people, if a person doesn’t care whether they work or not it should not be my responsiblity to take care of them. Truly disabled and the elderly are different.

Four years of Carter gave us Reagan. Four years of Reagan gave us four more years of Reagan plus four years of Bush 41. Unfortunately 4 years of Bush 41 (and specifically the one day of Bush 41 when he reneged on his No New Taxes pledge) gave us clinton.

Obama’s success has simply been steller!!! I cannot think of any American President who has achieved so much in such a short time. It is really, absolutely unbelievable. He has absolute control of the press. Like dogs he can kick them at will and they run back to him. His socialist (i.e. Republican) opponents cower before him. He chairs the Politburo and shares power with even more committed Marxists (Pelosi). He has permanently and irrevocably, damaged the economy and ensured that government control and benefits mean far more to a vast majority of Americans than what Capitalism can ever offer them again. He has bankrupted and sold the country. He has single-handedly hemmed in American power, prostrated the Republic before all despots and has complete control of all slavish military commanders who will do nothing but his bidding.

And this for a Constitutionally ineligible usurper!!!

Really, who else is such a short amount of time has accomplished so much?

If three years ago, I told you a single person could achieve all of this you would have called me crazy.

Looking to the past will not save you. Changing a few socialists (i.e. Republicans) will not save you.

I have shot enough animals to know what death throes look like. That is what is happening. Your choice? To join the sheep or die with honor.

If you doubt this, check back in two years...magnify Obama’s tremondous successes to date fourfold, his power by then more than doubled.

The military and police armed by his side. Of course for our own benefit, to protect us in the chaos and crises that will be created to push even further “change” and progress.

Obama is so far ahead in this game it’s beginning to become uninteresting.

jest sayin....

Depending on who the Republicans nominate it could give us four more years of Obama.

How ‘bout the feisty new Gov of NJ? I like him a lot. There are others sharpening their swords, too — Texas Gov, AZ’s too. Sarah Palin would be a great Energy Secretary.

No, you are right. However McCain slid in, we cannot let that happen again. I wonder if it wasn’t Dems voting in Primaries. People are mobilizing, tho, and with the Tea Parties and Sarah Palin’s continuing, awesome presence in national politics, I think good will come of it.

And of course Rasmussen’s -18 polling data and Obama’s cranky, thin-skinned visage on the TV — I think we are preparing even now.

Remember, it wasn’t Giuliani who was weak against McCain.. The news media IGNORED him and selected McCain to run against Obama, because the news media knew McCain would lose. WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN. WE WON’T BE FOOLED TWICE.
