Skip to comments.DECKER: Obama’s inevitable shellacking
Posted on 05/16/2012 3:49:34 AM PDT by radioone
Just about every objective indicator foreshadows a huge re-election defeat for President Obama. With every day that passes, Mr. Obama looks more like a loser.
Thats because there is doom and gloom everywhere you look. When government mathematical fudging is stripped away, unemployment is stuck over 10 percent. Economic growth is practically nonexistent and promises to slide downhill even more in the coming months with Europe and its banks rapidly collapsing. Due to Mr. Obamas out-of-control deficit spending, the national debt is at a heart-stopping $15.7 trillion, which erases a whole year of economic output by our entire country. With the Supreme Court poised to strike down Obamacare, his only signature legislative achievement, the president will have nothing to show for four years in office other than record misery.

Etch-a-Sketch Romney is on the case ... to re-elect Obama.
Romney remains in hiding while his Team has
destroyed all real conservatives.
Soros-Romney-Obama’s game is accomplished.
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving ass
In fact, the GOP traditionally does well with married women and those who go to church regularly, which is a big chunk of that demographic group. When the voting bloc is diced up by sex, Democrats basically only win minorities and those clinging to issues such as abortion and hopes for federally subsidized birth control.As Rush says over and over again, Republicans should run on ISSUES, not on voting blocs.
ObamaCARE - Romney invented it.
Forced GAY Marriage - Romney invented it.
Taxes hidden as 'fees' - Romney invented it.
Lying,pandering beyond belief - Romney invented it.
Ultrabad-governing - Romney invented it.
Well after Listening to Romney speaK with his Condescending and elitist tone I think its a Good idea to hide the Guy.
When you listened to W at least you could see the Guy Meant it,Romney just isnt Likeable
You are a broken record.
“Soros-Romney-Obamas game is accomplished.”
Look, Romney is not who we want, but he IS the nominee.
The goal now is to get rid of Obumbo, for the sake of survival.
While Romney is a liberal, at least he is not a Communist.
A second term of Obama could very well spell the end of America, if it is already not too late.
You all or nothing guys would just as soon go down with the ship as opposed to patching it up to float another day.
LBJ: May 75% approval. Won with 61% of the vote over Goldwater.
Nixon: May 62% approval. Won with 61% of the vote over McGovern.
Ford: May 47% approval. Lost with 48% of the vote to Carter [who got 50%].
Carter: May 40% approval. Lost with 41% of the vote to Reagan [who got 51%]
Reagan: May 53% approval. Won with 59% over Mondale.
Bush I: May 41% approval. Lost with 38% to Clinton [who got 43%. Note that Perot got 19%].
Clinton: May 54% approval. Won with 49% over Dole [who got 41%. Perot got 9%.]
Bush II: May 49% approval. Won with 53% over Kerry [who got 47%].
Stats are nagging things. I still will not take eye off ball as this POTUS will do anything to remain President for life. The DNC will start acting up soon as well to hold on to their power grab. Good possiblility that Hill will be trotted out. Anything is possible.
People in DC are deluded and out of touch that somehow Obama is a shoe in.
We conservatives have been playing the vote-for-the-lesser-of-two-evils game for the last forty years, and where has it gotten us? The whole country is undergoing a downward slide. Well, I may not be able to stop that slide all by myself, but at least I can stop co-operating with it. It's time (and past time) to do something different.
So, no. You can elect Romney if you like, but you'll do it without my vote. I won't be a party to my country's ongoing trip down the tubes. No.
Everything you say is true.
“So, no. You can elect Romney if you like, but you’ll do it without my vote. I won’t be a party to my country’s ongoing trip down the tubes. No.”
No, I would not LIKE to elect RINO Romney, but if you do not, you may very well be a party to the country going down the tubes.
You are on a sinking ship.
Are you going to refuse the life boat because of the seating arrangements?
The spoiled brat attitude will not save America.
If you get your way, where are you going to move to for the rest of your life?
What appears to be 'ahead' for the USS USA is an iceberg.
And it is an iceberg created by Team Romney.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Is Romney who I wanted? Oh HECK no. Not even CLOSE. Do I want Obama re-elected? An even BIGGER no.
So why don't you show a little intellectual honesty and just come out and say "I want Obama re-elected?" Because these are our ONLY two choices. People can stop all the pipe dreams of a switch at the convention...blah blah blah. this isn't the 1800's...and that SURE would get BHO re-elected.
So just come out and say it: "I want BHO to be re-elected" and state your reason. Because you have TWO choices. Romney (as detestable as that is) or Obama. ANY OTHER ACTION on your part serves to get BHO elected. PERIOD...and NOBODY can be stupid enough to think otherwise.
So at least be HONEST enough and tell us WHY you want him re-elected. At least I would respect a reason.
I mean...I've thought about it. Here is mine: People are idiots...and they blame the Captain who is sailing the ship at the time...and I think this ship (the USS USA) is going to sink in the next 4 years...REGARDLESS of who is at the helm. And part of me thinks it might be better if a dim had been leading it for 4-8 years. Maybe that would make an impression on the sheeple.
What's your reason?
When you are done trashing romney and obama wins a second term, where are you going to go?
I agree. Like it or not, Romney’s the guy. My state hasn’t even voted yet and he’s still the guy. Hold your nose and move forward. Our guys lost.
Ah, see? There's your mistake. Romney isn't a lifeboat... he's just the part of the ship that's sinking slowest.
No thank you. It's the Republican taste for compromise that got us into this mess, and I'm not going along with it any more.
I bet Romney will have his version of “The office of President-Elect”
I honestly do hope the Clintons dig up his past deep enough and it gets spread around like a jet turbine manure spreader and Romney quits.
Shellacking Part II
To answer your rather childish responses (and they are childish...especially given the gravity of our situation)...there is a major difference between the two candidates.
I assume we will gain the Senate and HOLD the House. An increasingly conservative Senate and House will hold Romney's feet to the fire and he will NOT nominate commies to the bench, unlike Obama and he will be forced to rule through executive order.
An Obama win will mean 2 or 3 more socialist supremes and that he will be forced to get his agenda through via EO's...out of the pervue of the congress. Romney will NOT do that. Obama, OTOH, will send EO's flying faster than they are now.
Now do not sit here and tell me there is no difference.
Here is the truth based upon truth (not Romney's daydreams).
"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."

Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys. He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."

"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!
Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

The Obama people are out in force this morning. The really want four more for the Kenyan.
Stick with geology. We’ll all be happier.
Thanks for answering my question.
Sorry I tailgated you...lost my cool for a second.
FReepers take NOTHING for granite.
That said, remember this: Romney is NOT the GOP candidate today
even though he cheated "well" and backstabbed "remarkably".
Second: Romney is the antithesis of the Tea Party movement. He was selected by the GOP-E as their boy to smack down the grass roots movement. When you support Romney you support the GOP-E in minimizing the impact of the real conservatives.
Third: a Romney win will move the Entire GOP leftward. Right now we have the far left Democrats and the somewhat left GOP. After a Romney win, especially if its a landslide, We will have both parties with a far left culture in place and the GOP Congress will happily (as they have done in the past) go along with every big government, liberty reducing, crony capitalist idea Romney comes up with. There will be no effective resistance. A leftist Romney with a mandate will b a terrible thing.
Since Nov 27, 2000
Diogenesis hasn’t created an about page.
Been on here since 2000 and we STILL know NOTHING about him/her/it. What’s wrong, TOO GUTLESS to come out of the SHADOWS!
Romney's past actions are troubling in some important areas but he's saying the right things now. I don't know if he means them or not but he says he's pro-life, he says he is opposed to partial-birth abortion, he says he's in favor of traditional marriage, he says he's for repeal of Obamacare. If he is elected we will have to be vigilant and watch out for recidivism, but that is still better than having someone who is aggressively pro-abortion, aggressively pro-gay, aggressively anti-American in the White House.
My goal is to get this communist out of the whitehut for the sake of my children and grandchildren.
The liar thug in chief is destroying this country and has too many supporting this destruction.
At the least, with mittie, he’ll have conservatives and the media keeping his crap in check. I don’t think he’ll be able to run wild stomping on the constitution as this unAmerican presently is.
How are conservatives going to be able to keep his crap in check?
Why would a liberal media bother?
You certainly knew some things from before you were
banned in 2001.
What was that for, again?
And given your impetuous pejorativeness,
were you a RomneyBOT originally, too?
ACTUALLY I was banned in both 2000 and 2001.
It will be all over the airwaves because in the mind of the media it does not go far enough left.
As for pubs putting a clamp on their own President; you gotta be kidding. It hasn't happened in decades. On the contrary, the pubbies have a very poor track record of fiscal and social responsibility when they hold the reins of power. Just go back to 2004 to see what a Republican Congress with a Republican (not conservative) President looks like.
As for conservatives: Sure we will whine and whimper, but this candidate was selected to put conservatives and the Tea Party movement in its place - the wilderness. This election demonstrates conservatives have no effective power, and never will as long as you "hold your nose" and support a liberal GOP candidate. You may get tossed a bone, but that's it.
What you say is very true
McCain /Palin were ahead in the polls as you stated until the Economic Doomsday Crisis was announced by President Bush
Problem is the democrats will wait until after the GOP convention till they unleash the broadsides on Mitt
Getting rid of him at the convention is the only hope and that will make the GOP look weak etc
This is the saddest situation possible
The MORMON people are out in force this morning. They REALLY want to convince you to vote for a deceived (or deceiving) man for President.
MMM: the FIRST American 9/11!!!
CAncel the Convention!!!
Peddle this elsewhere!
This will make the GOP look STRONG!!
Willing to do what is necessary to WIN over the Farces of MORMONism and the Forces of EVIL!
So when I go to TEA party outings and meetings am I supporting the gop-e or am I just a tobacco chewing, gun toten, Bible carrying red necked moderate?
Demanding a conservative prove their conservatism by voting for a liberal is nothing if not bizarre.
I ain’t peddling anything I am stating my opinion
That is the way YOU see it but the MSM will peddle it as the GOP being in disarray having to change horses etc etc and then it depends on how the brainwashed masses respond NOT how you hope they will
PS I can’t stand Romney and hope he gets dumped —before the convention if possible BUT the dems and the MSM will wait until afterward when it is to late and then destroy him so there will be no reason for the delegates to oust him
CAncel the election!!! Just let Obama have it now?
“I honestly do hope the Clintons dig up his past deep enough and it gets spread around like a jet turbine manure spreader and Romney quits.”
They’re getting around to it......wait until after the convention and Romney is offically at the head of the table.......You’ll get your wish only it will be too late! (Be careful what you ask for)
