When (if?) Obama loses, what will be the explanation?
Orange Punch the political commentary blog of the Orange County Register ^ | 6-11-2012 | Mark Landsbaum

Posted on 06/11/2012 3:01:03 PM PDT by Mark Landsbaum

The standing argument of the Barack Obama supporters since his entry into national politics has been that the guy is so good, only a bigot could oppose his election.

So when (if?) Obama is defeated in November, what will the Obama defenders and loyalists say?

“If Barack Obama loses re-election, he can blame bigoted white voters,” James Taranto writes at the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web.

But . . .

I’m surprised he’s willing to risk losing in a landslide. If we had a decent candidate his loss would certainly be Mondalian—and it may be anyway. That kind of loss doesn’t seem like something his delicate ego can handle.

They’ll say “Obama lost because he’s black and everyone else is RACIST!!!!!” Also, we’ll hear how “Obama losing proves that racism is on the rise”.

How about... “the Republicans ruined the economy, then lied and blamed it on Obama to get Romney elected.” ? They are already blaming the bad economy on the Republicans’ election strategy.

Oh yeah... and it’s Bush’s fault.

“That kind of loss doesn’t seem like something his delicate ego can handle.”

Yes, narcissists don’t handle rejection very well. In the event it became clear he was facing a landslide, I wonder what kind of excuse he would conjure up to avoid the humiliation of a crushing defeat. Or would we witness a meltdown in public as the pressures intensified? He’s never had to face the stresses of being held accountable for anything in his life and seriously doubt he could withstand the spectre of a Mondalian type defeat.

Anyone who thinks Obama is going to be quiet after he is thrown out of office is wrong.

He will be loud, and radically racial in attacking everything the new administration attempts.

As long as he is gone, I couldn't care less what the excuse is.

As I always say, I do not hate Obama because he is black. I hate him for his bad policies. The fact that he is black is just a bonus!

I expect that if (when) he loses, he will not go quietly into the night. I expect, given his ego and narcisism, that he will not interpret the results as a repudiation of either of him personally or of his policies. My prediction is the *day* he loses will be the first day of his campaign for the dem nomination in 2016.

He won’t. The commie’s can’t afford to let this get away.
I don’t usual go along with blog thinking but I wouldn’t put ‘anything’ past this administration. This idea has a lot of hair. I think I got this from a post here. Just something to think about. Would be great if it were all wrong.

PLANS OF TREACHERY AND MARTIAL LAW?
For several weeks, word is hitting the Internet that serious plans to
disrupt America, create chaos and respond with military/martial action are
coming into play. The generic description of this activity can be seen
below and needs to be read carefully to understand the threat to our well
being.

In parallel, whispers abound that Obama has a plan to FABRICATE an
assassination attempt on himself, then in the name of “national security”
and the ensuing STAGED street demonstrations and clashes by his
supporters suspend the Constitution, postpone elections, declare martial
law and rule by decree.

The information below, appears to be in “intelligence shorthand” format
where a threat is described but classified details are not listed.
” ‘hot times’...

“There are indications that the [unexpected military actions] that will
[soooo upset/anger/infuriate] the [populace/usofa] are now being moved
up by (7/seven to 9/nine days) from the end of June time frame discussed
in the ticks in time... article.

“If so, then we can expect [officialdom] to be [pimping] their [lying
‘experts’] starting on or about June 20th. The forecasts for
the [unexpected military events] have a few sub sets that pointed to
[corruption (being forced)] onto the [populace/usa] by [lying
experts/authorities].

“As they (officialdom) are providing certain hints to those “semioticians”
(STUDY OF SIGNS & SYMBOLS) with adequate vision that schedules for
their NWO (New World Order) are in a state of flux, “it now does appear
that they (tptb) = the powers that be have [decided] to [employ
treachery/(unleashing deceit)] in [bringing to ruin] the [person provided
with preferential status].”

On that note: We don’t hear much about 0bamao’s browncoat citizen army anymore. Anyone?

None of that will happen. The military is not pro-Obama and would not support a coup. Add to that the fact that sixty million Americans are armed and Obama’s army of black panthers would be in their graves before nightfall on the first day of the coup.

And they know it.

The statement that if I don't agree with and support Obama means that I am a racist is in fact the most racist and insulting statement I have ever heard.
I don't like or dislike anyone because of the color of their skin. I like or dislike people because of what kind of person they are. I dislike and avoid narcissist at all costs. Listening to Obama continue to proclaim that, “I didn't do it,” and, “It isn't my fault,” is like listening to a 6 year old having a tantrum trying to deny he got caught red handed at something. Do I buy all the Bush did it crap? No more than I would the 6 year old. It just sounds stupid and the voters of this country are tired of hearing it. Our president is a man who has led from the rear. That means he lets others take all of the political risks and then steps up and takes credit for whatever goes right and turns out well. Look at how he took credit for the heroic SEAL mission that neutralized OBL. He did nothing that any other president would not have done. The SEALS were the only ones on that mission. Obama was warm and safe while the SEALS risked their lives but to listen to him he did it all by himself.
I am retired military. I find Obama to be totally inept and disgusting. And oh yes, I come from a multi racial family so the racist label just doesn't work on me.
Obama will loose the election because he deserves to loose. He has screwed up our country intentionally with his socialist agenda and needs to be gone.

If Obama loses in a landslide that means that a great majority of us are racists. That being the case and since we are a large majority, put a price on the head of every known Black Panther member.

He is not going to be replaced because he is black. He is going to be replaced because he is not worth a shit, plain and simple. There are 23,000,000 people unemployed in America. He says his administration has added 4,300,000 jobs. Where? When? How? But even if you believe that lie, That 4.3 million jobs is not nearly good enough to merit another 4 years.

The DHS thing is a long-term pre-approved contract. They’re not going to buy them all at once but when they do buy them the paperwork will have already been done for the purchase. This way saves millions in administrative costs and is actually a very practical and sensible thing to do.

I can only imagine he thinks he’ll be able claim “martyr” status by blaming his defeat on racists. That way, he can believe it’s not his fault. Narcissism and persecution complexes go hand in hand.

If he didn’t have that “out”, I can see him pulling a “you can’t fire me, I quit” and resigning before the election results are final :)

There are far too many parenthetical remarks in that screed for me to comprehend it. Sounds like more quivering-under-the-bed paranoia about Zero canceling the elections and instituting martial law.

As I’ve said before, I think that 90 Million American gun owners would have a slight objection to that.
