Obama’s Catch-2012
Legal Insurrection ^ | 7/8/2011 | William Jacobson

Posted on 07/08/2011 7:26:56 PM PDT by Lakeshark

"The only way for Obama to stimulate the enormous private sector job growth needed to ensure Obama’s reelection is for Obama to announce he is not running for reelection, which would unleash a wave of investment and economic activity not seen since the Great Depression."

Since the day he was elected my whole family has gone on minimum consumer buying, no frills, no vacations, no toys on a whim, a minimal Christmas. Paid off one vehicle ahead of schedule. Kept bank accounts at minimal levels and hoarded cash.

Fortunately work has been steady for my wife and myself.

But the bottom line is that we have been basically on war footing, never knowing if or when some disaster may strike.

We need certain appliances and such, but not until after Obama is gone.

Fear of the future is something we've never known for any length of time since the Great depression in this country.

It's shameful that even 25% of this country would vote for this dirtbag after what he's done to the confidence of this nation.

I can honestly say that of the few people I know on a somewhat regular basis such as my barber, store clerks and even some co-workers is that they all voted for Obama and they admit the regret doing so, mostly because his promises that flew out of his pie hole were empty promises.

That basically everything he sold to his voters has failed horribly.

I wonder just what really is the nationwide percentage of remorseful Obama supporters. I can hardly believe any polls coming out as its all propaganda.

We really need new carpeting and a new dishwasher.

For the foreseeable future - we will be steamcleaning and handwashing dishes.

The moment I get news our Dear Reader is outa there, I’m going shopping!

I want to buy a new truck, a diesel. I want to buy a new plasma TV with 3-D. I really need a garage or rather a shop big enough for my tools and my motorcycles.

Nope, nada and zilch.

But oh man, will we ever celebrate when Sarah Palin becomes POTUS! Steak and eggs for breakfast every day!

When Obama leaves office it will be like the last scene from the Star Wars movies, everyone celebrates all across the galaxy.

And the stormtroopers will be no more. No Obama, no Acorn.

I don't believe that they have worked as hard as they have, just to slink off merely because thay lose an election.

It is my personal belief that we are going to have one hell of a fight on our hands. Whether our side has the stomache for it remains yet to be seen. The election year 2012 will go a long way to determining that.

Zero and his fellow communists will not leave peacefully and without a fight. I see massive voter fraud and legal chicanery. If he is finally evicted, it will take years of intense efforts to eject all his appointed regulators, revoke his executive orders, repeal the Democratic laws and so forth. It will be a massive job fought at every turn by lawyers of the left. My prayers are with the younger generations, because if they are not successful they will live like the Russians did under communism.

Actually, I believe the Mythbusters proved that you can. However we're dealing with a steaming pile of excrement, not just a turd.

The hidden cash will come out of the closet with some confidence that:

Energy jobs will be up and attendant prices will edge down.

Cheaper energy frees up pocket cash for many week to week consumers.

Transportation costs come down, lowering wholesale costs.

A certain pent-up-demand as you reference personally is ready to explode, knowing there’s no hidden “gotcha” coming.

The elimination of Obamacare relaxes the concerns of corporations.

The ridding of illegals from the workforce ( and repatriation) through enforcement and new policy provides jobs Americans are now willing to take.

I don’t see a downside anywhere.

It’s probably true but possibly not for long. When LBJ announced he wasn’t running, the anti-war crowd thought the US would be out of Vietnam by mid-1969.

Right now, Romney leads the Repukes and he could actually be as bad as the Obo in the WH.

Corporations have doubled their savings over the last 3 years, holding onto money over concerns that they are about to get raped by the Federal govt. As a result, hiring and investment have screeched to a halt.

If, all of a sudden, the threat was lifted, you would see some historic activity and some serious tax revenues.

Leftists have no understanding of this.

I do not think obammy will ultimately run for re-election.
His numbers are in the tank and he will not have the fire in his belly to lead his socialist party in to a devestating de feet. AGAIN.\

I agree. The 2010 election was about Obama. What we learned is that the private sector, that is, those who perceive their bread not to be buttered by government, represent a large plurality of voters.

What has Obama done since? Continue to demonize business with his rhetoric, continue to target certain industries, like banking, oil, and private aviation with his policy proposals. In other words, he's exacerbated his acceptability problem...no....he's scared the bejesus out of everyone. He's displayed political tone-deafness, narcissitic pique, and is left only with excuses and flat-out untrue premises to defend himself.

He's toast.
