Obama fears 'nightmare' if Romney wins
United Press International ^ | August 20, 2012

President Obama fears a "nightmare scenario" in which Republicans control the national agenda, an e-book published Monday says.

The book, "Obama's Last Stand," also charges that Obama considers challenger Mitt Romney "too weak" to be president, USA Today reported.

Author Glenn Thrush describes Obama as describing his GOP opponent as "too weak to stand up to his own money men, too weak to defend his own moderate record as the man who signed into law the first health insurance mandate as Massachusetts governor in 2006, too weak to admit Obama had done a single thing right as president."

Thrush wrote that presidential aides told him Obama fears a "nightmare scenario in which Romney beat him, Republicans won both house [of Congress] and two liberal Supreme Court justices quickly departed the bench."

Aides said Obama has a "great uneasiness" that Romney will win and take credit for the president's successes, including an anticipated economic recovery in the next four years, Thrush reported.

"I'm not going to let him win ... so that he can take all the credit when economy turns around," Obama told his aides in a meeting, the book said.

The book is part of a series of e-books on the campaign from the staff at Politico, the USA Today report said.

Tens of millions of Obamatons are having nightmares about Romney winning as well. They’re having nightmares about having going to go out and get a job if Romney’s elected.

Coming from Obama that’s really something. He’s the weakest president I think we’ve ever had.

And yet, if true, it's actually something I agree with him on. Obama at least has the courage to stand for something: socialism. Though I find that 'something' to be reprehensible, I at least know where he stands (unlike Romney).
