Even The MSM is Starting to Dump On Obama: BYe, Bye Barry
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-12-2012 | MOTUS

Posted on 06/12/2012 10:06:21 AM PDT by NOBO2012

What is it going to take to WIN around here?

It was bad enough that the Republicans declared War On Women, butt now it seems they’ve launched several new offensives, are advancing from behind the lines and have even established an underground of resistance fighters comprised primarily of former allies.(h/t Jayne)

And the Clinton wing of the Democrat Party continues to lob grenades at Obama, undermining his bleak message of scapegoating and diversion with shiny objects ("Look over there -- it's a woman who can't get free contraceptives!").

Isn’t it bad enough that we have to contend with this new Mitt Romney creature who came from out of nowhere to harass us nearly every day...

Hillary will be the October surprise, you can bet on that. Either as VP replacing Biden, or a full on Presidential candidate.

October Surprises I’ve heard of thus far:

* She Who Must Not Be Named as either the bottom, or the top, of the Leftist ticket in November;

* The War on Terror resumes, with an attack by/on Iran;

* The economy takes another manufactured hit, and Bush is blamed;

* The Left reveals some vile opposition-research gossip just prior to the election.

Please! Let’s hope and pray not! She’s as bad, if not worse than BO. It’s so past time for she and Billy Jeff to exit stage left...permanently!

You can bet that one, or all of the above, will occur before the election. The Dems will do anything to win. And of course, anything that happens will be Bush’s fault.

Things are going according to plan. Unfortunately, it is not our plan. Obama will continue to shift leftward; the media who previously fawned on him will begin to bloviate on how damaging his actions are to his own re-election bid. Obama will throw the election to Romney if at all possible. Romney will damage the Republican brand. We will lose our gains in Congress thanks to this damage. And Romney will hand the White House back to the liberals in 2016 or 2020 with a democrat controlled Congress, a Supreme Court laden with another liberal (or two), a Tea Party with the wind taken out of its sails, and the Republican banner badly torn.

Win this battle, and the war effort gets set back a decade.

No way.


It's gotta happen before or during the Convention or it ain't gonna happen. They'd end up in protracted legal battles over getting her on the ballot in most states. America is not New Jersey.

These don’t interfere with each other so why not all of them at once?

After all, it’s only control of the USA forever that’s at stake for them.

Ding ding ding.. winner.

It’s going to be about Romney’s Mormon faith. By the time the MSM and their lackies in the administration are done with this, Romney will be the most vilified person in human history.

There will be hordes of anarchists in Salt Lake tearing at the walls. Hundreds of thousands marching in protest.

Obama won't pick Hillary--he doesn't want to be Arkancided.

If she did replace Biden, the media would fall over themselves praising the decision, but I doubt it would change many votes in November. How many people are going to decide whether to vote for or against Obama based on who the V.P. is? There isn't a great pool of Hillary fans out there among the independents who will suddenly back Obama just to get Hillary as V.P.

That is very possible but a just a good indication of how the RATs are totally desperate. That old, washed up hag is not going to inspire anyone to victory. She looks much older than Romney just for starters and can’t escape the Obama contagion.

Lol, it is always good to be paranoid wrt politics.

Obama has NO intention of throwing the election to Romney.

He really is this incompetent. He really is not particularly smart. He really has NO idea of how to help an economy create jobs. We don’t know that he ever took an economics course anywhere.

With a sufficient Republican majority in Congress Romney is not likely to get out of control. It is an open question as to whether he knows what to do or if Congress will. BUT just removing the Disaster and the Job Killing Health Care Reform will cause an immediate up turn in the economy.

I don’t think the Unions will ever regain their power to boost the RATs to victory. So their prospects are bleak at best.

It’s not about independents. It’s about 0bama retaining the bimbo vote. They’ve lost interest in him because his American Idol facade is crumbling so perhaps a female VP would get their attention again. Just might work! You underestimate the naivete and stupidity of this demographic; It’s about style and image, not substance. They’d be more than happy to sell America down the river just to get a female VP.

I don’t believe this for a minute. I remember when Clinton was running for his second term, and all the Democrats swore he had failed them and that, *this time* he had better do what they wanted, or they wouldn’t vote for him.

They voted for him.

I remember reading an astonishing post from a Democrat, after the usual b.s. before the election, that Obama might be the antichrist. The Democrat pondered it a bit, then said he *wished* Obama *was* the antichrist, because then *we* (the left) would get what *we* wanted, and he would punish the conservatives. Really hurt them. He would be *powerful*.

The implications of this were jaw dropping, but it shows what we are dealing with, here. How truly dangerous it is.

If you truly believe this, and I take you at your word, then you _must_ do what you can to get Obama elected. Can I then assume that you are endorsing Obama, for the eventual greater good? You plan on voting for him, right?

Obama has NO intention of throwing the election to Romney.

Blatantly advancing the homosexual agenda, publicly expressing climate change to be priority one for the next term, and picking a fight with Catholics -- five months before the election -- in your opinion is not attempting to throw it? No one is that dumb. Not even Obama, and certainly not the marketing team he's used to get this far. He is systematically divesting himself of the large voting blocks.

If I called the shots for the other team, I'd direct Obama to toss this election. Heck, I'd split the vote using Clinton if I had to in order to get the job done. (And Romney is such a weak candidate that just might become necessary.) It's a reasonable gambit for a group bent on scuttling the advances conservatism has recently made. The move has no downside. If you were pulling the strings, what would be the downside of having Romney pickup where Obama leaves off for four years? What would be the upside? This is chess and they are making a brilliant move.

Deja Vu. Heard that in 2008 as the republicans rallied around McCain. Yet, here we are. And, we are stronger and more organized today than we were in 2008. In fact, we are gaining ground. Obama wouldn't even set foot in my state to campaign against Scott Walker. Why would I toss that progress away and sacrifice the next presidential election and the next three congressional elections just so I can call a liberal statist with an "R" behind his name "president"? Not a good move. Keep doing what we're doing instead -- supporting genuine conservatives -- in order to keep making progress.

We gave Scott Walker a greater victory in his recall election than he had in his general election. And, yet, I fully expect Wisconsin to be a blue state in November. Why? Not because we favor Obama. We generally can't stand him. But, we've had to deal with so much liberal trickery that we're finally starting to catch on to the game and won't fall for the bait in the trap that is Romney. November will be telling.

No ... that is a naive and simplistic line of reasoning. As I said, the best move is to continue doing what is gaining us ground. And that it is supporting genuine conservatives. Romney is no asset in the bigger game. He's a queen on the board I'd happily sacrifice to achieve checkmate. But that requires advancing and positioning our own pieces for the task while leaving him vulnerable. I will advance and position our true assets to the best of my ability.

Can’t argue with that. Much. However, the message to Putin about being “...more flexible after the election” might be a good argument, even for statist worm like Romney.

And to do so with the best of our ability requires that we TAKE as much as CONTROL as we can WHILE we CAN.

This means a Romney WIN. He will gain us the control. WE can hold his feet to the fire, his and every rino representative and senator.

As for picking a leftist Supreme Court Judge. Let him try.

Sun Tzu said "if ten times the enemy's strength, surround them; if five times, attack them; if double, be divide them; if equal, engage them; if fewer, evade them; if weaker, avoid them."

You believe we have ten time's the opponent's strength, that we can hold their feet to the fire, that we can direct the agenda, and thwart any leftward slide.

Were that so, FRiend, Romney would not even be our candidate today.

We have not reached that position of strength yet. Even our attempts to hold the line during the budget standoff failed us.

If we continue the course we've set, gaining in strength with a genuine conservative coalition, we will acquire the goal you desire. But to plan a battle based upon a presumption of superior strength where it does not exist is to guarantee failure and set back the entire war effort.

Our team is ready, willing, trained, and sensitive to the type of battle waged by Obama and his supporters. Be calm and willing to let them do as they've learned and been instructed. Give them aid and add to their ranks as possible. Resist the urge to give authority over them to one that does not share the conservative agenda of his own free will.

we are stronger and more organized today than we were in 2008.

Speaking of deja vu...Remember when the Republican congress refused to investigate Filegate and other Clinton crimes, or to bring impeachment charges against him, because they wanted to keep him around to run against in 1996? They were absolutely certain he could easily be defeated. Thanks to them, we got four more years of his destructive actions.

We need to start putting country ahead of politics.

Yup, 1996 ... the GOP's Bob Dole candidacy was so weak that Ross Perot walked away with more than 8% of the vote. That pretty much handed the election back to Clinton on silver platter. Deja Vu is right; Mitt Romney is weaker than Dole -- and because of it we are poised to endure another four years of destructive Obama politics. Another stellar example of the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. You'd think the GOP would wise up. But there is a silver lining. The defeated Republicans steeled their spines enough to try impeachment proceedings against Clinton in 1998; they got their dander up. With potential Republican control of the Senate in 2012, far more impeachable offences committed by Obama, a disenfranchised Democrat party, and a repeat of the defeated Republican presidential candidate, maybe this time around we'll see better success. Putting country before politics in no way requires supporting a liberal for POTUS. In fact, just the opposite is required.

Obama is an ideologue and to him the fact that he got where he is means that he believes more are followers of his ideals than not.

And I have seen no evidence that he is smart in any way.

There is nothing they can do about the colossal failure of this administration. It is clear that the voters want nothing more to do with this party or this clown. He can’t throw an election that is already lost. Nor is there anyone that can “direct” him to do so.
