Who To Thank If Obama Wins A Second Term?
Political Realities ^ | 10/29/12 | LD Jackson

Posted on 10/29/2012 4:50:59 AM PDT by LD Jackson

The expert opinions on who will win the election on November 6 and become our next President vary widely. Some believe Mitt Romney has the momentum and will win going away. Other opinions are not so favorable and believe Barack Obama will win. I wish I could answer the question, but my crystal ball is fogged up and I can't tell which direction our country will be taking after next Tuesday. But if Obama does win a second term, who will we have to thank for that blessing? Personally, I have someone in mind and they have promised to be back to rub our faces in it after the election.

Those of you who have read Political Realities know I have no problem publishing comments who dissent from my opinion.I enjoy a good discussion and debate, especially when both sides are respectful in their disagreements. On that note, I received a comment on last Friday's post that I wanted to share with you. I approved it and you can see my direct reply to the commenter at the link. Please note the user name the commenter used to make his/her comment; non racist - for a change.

ok so I am just browsing these one sided hypocritical bunch of lies while wondering how I could be living in a nation so divided by lies. I am not sure if some of you sniffed too much glue as a child or your parents where too misled by a west Virginian or east Appalachian group of infested farmers…. either way I will be back in 10 days to rub the fact that we will have a re-elect of the same president and this phony jerk that says one thing while doing another scurries back into the crevice of slimy millionaires where he belongs. I feel sorry for the one sided losers that monopolize their time reading garbage like this and then allowing their emotions to run rampant. Country was founded and runs better bottom up -not top down. Execs have too much power and need to be stripped of their corrupt lies – Romney is just another Wall Street thief.
As you can see by reading the comment, it didn't take non racist long to get into the personal insults to anyone who is supporting Mitt Romney. Beyond that, he/she is merely repeating the talking points of the Obama campaign. In other words, class warfare, the rich are evil, etc. He also made sure everyone knows what they read on Political Realities is pure garbage and a waste of the time it takes to read it.

I am past getting upset when I receive a comment like this. Obviously, I will never agree with the sentiment declared by non racist. Having said that, I do take exception to the implication that anyone not supporting Barack Obama is a racist. As I told him/her in my direct reply, my disagreements with our current President have nothing to do with the color of his skin and everything to do with his policies and his lack of leadership.

Until recently, this election has been about the economy. Even though that is still the overwhelming concern for many, if not most, Americans, foreign policy has entered into the equation. Every day, it seems we are learning more and more of how the Obama administration failed, in regards to Libya and the attacks that took the lives of four Americans. The information we now have tells us Barack Obama knew the attack was taking place and from the beginning, knew it had nothing to do with the video that took so much of the blame, early on. We know Obama and his administration has been lying about what they knew and when they knew it, and that they are in the process of trying to bury that information. That means we may very well reelect a President that has been lying to us for several weeks. If he will lie about what happened in Libya, what else has he been less than truthful on?

I often wonder if there is hope left for America. In my way of thinking, recent events should automatically disqualify Obama from winning a second term. How anyone could trust him enough to cast another vote for him is beyond my comprehension. If Obama wins a second term, what little hope we have left will be gone. The America we love and hold dear may very well not recover from another four years of Barack Obama in the White House. For that, we will have people like non racist to thank. You'll have to forgive me if I sound less than thankful for their gift of reelecting a man who can not be trusted to serve another four years in the highest office in our country. If that happens, this will no longer be the America I grew up in. Thanks, non racist!

Obama support is only from government dependent ignorant poor or anti-American liberals. That’s who to blame.

That there is not really a valid opposing political point of view, but is probably all one can expect from Obama supporters.

I think most people could care less about his skin color, which is only half-black in the first place. The deciding factor for me is the fact the man has no clue on how to run anything, much less a market system that solves a billion simultaneous equations each nano second. Yet, he is arrogant and stupid enough to think he can do better. What sane man writes an autobiography at age 37 having accomplished nothing during those 37 years other than take other people's money and do their bidding. He's a very bad joke and needs to be removed from office next month and anyone with one neuron still firing has to see he is unfit to lead.

hmm ~ just 'cause you're slimey that doesn't mean you're rich ~ nor does being rich mean you are slimey.

That's where your critic runs off the track ~ but everybody knows about those things anyway.

There are 25 foot waves on Lake Michigan this morning and that is important ~ I remember what a 30 footer did to the South Shore communities.

So, when's the last time you saw a hurricane reach from Baltimore to Chicago?

Too soon. But... Obama is the result of years of Ds transforming, with some R help, of election from civic duty to football game, and the strategy that goes with it. It sounds counter-intuitive and elitist but the fact is low voting population was a phony issue.

Thanks to Motor-Voter, crazy early voting, and relaxed absentee voting rules we now have a higher voting population but also a vastly more uniformed one. Of course that was the end-game for the D’s & unfortunately the R’s played along. Take a look at Piven & Cloward’s book on the subject... yes THAT Piven & Cloward. It’s why every election since 2000 has been nip & tuck & will continue to be for years to come.

You forgot 'government dependent contractors' ~ which, of course, is the case that proves the contrary position ~ that is, that receiving a check from the government is no guarantee you'll vote Democrat.

Frankly I have no idea where you guys picked up that idea. Bizarrre ~ like saying 'peeps who use federal reserve money will vote Democrat' ~

So all the Republicans who spent month after month bad mouthing Romney, even after he had the primaries wrapped up, are now blame free?

Just wow! 25 foot waves on Lake Michigan. We visit Mt. Baldy about once a year and love the lake, sand, and good time.

Ignorance and Want.

“And they cling to me, appealing from their fathers. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased...”

Every election since the next one after the founding of the Republican Democrat party by Jefferson and his cronies has been nip and tuck.

it's the nature of politics in a a single member district to rapidly devolve from the patrician ideal to two roughly equal parties made up of barely compatible coalition partners ~ who seek to get at least 50% + 1 vote! ~ 'cause that's how you win.

This country is made up of thousands of single member districts ~ counties, townships, cities, towns, congressional, state legislative, the states themselves, and finally the entire country!

This is America.

In Europe the democracies generally use voting schemes that reserve coalition building for the day after the election ~ we are not Europe.

Yes, just like the cheating GOP elites will also be blame free. Romney didn’t win without a lot of unethical moves being pulled on his behalf.
