Skip to comments.BUSH 2ND TERM ALREADY DOOMED?????
Posted on 11/08/2004 7:45:51 PM PST by Captain Peter Blood
Just caught a snippet on CNN with Aaron Brown with a report by Bruce Morton on Second Term Presidents. The Left-Wing media is now starting the drumbeat that since a number of recent second term Presidents starting with Eisenhower and the U2 incident all the way to Clinton and Impeachment that Bush will have some sort of scandal in his second term. That Presidents in second terms always fall far short of their ambitions. The bottom line was that Liberals have nothing to fear from Bush as nothing of any consequence will be accomplished and/or scandal of some kind will bring down and diminish his Presidency. This is what the Hard Left Wingers are putting out and I believe that this is the type of propaganda we will be seeing for the next couple of months.
go, left, go! keep on what yer doin'... don't stop
They're just trying to get their wishes out as a hint to librat political operatives.
-like they haven't already thought of that.
we need to go get cbs and start with rather gate ..... then when we take them down then go after the others....
Bush's DOOM will be his great victory in the WOT! (because we all know they don't want us to succeed.)
It's been accurate every time!
Watch as they drill into the administration on the outing of the CIA operative.
When will the old media ever learn not to underestimate Geo. Bush? This is getting ridiculous...
This President says he has political capital and he's going to spend it. He did it to recapture the Senate in 2002. He doesn't care if the chattering classes like him, he's going to fix Social Security and spread freedom to the Middle East. History will be his judge, not CNN/Gallup.
Yep, all of the lib media journ-o-lists out there are licking their chops waiting, dreaming for the chance to take down President Bush in some sort of Woodward-Bernstein remake. It's the thing that brings them to orgasm.
I think it was Ramesh Ponnuru who pointed out that it's been some time since a President had a second full term with both houses of Congress under his own party's control.
Crap! First the election was DOOOOOOOOOOMED and now the Administration is DOOOOOOOOOMED!
By the way, does anyone have anything bad to say about the 2nd Eisenhower Administration? Or the 2nd Franklin Roosevelt Administration? Or the 2nd Grover Cleveland Administration? Or the 2nd Andrew Jackson Administration? Or the 2nd James Monroe Administration? Or the 2nd James Madison Administration? Or the 2nd Thomas Jefferson Administration? Or the 2nd George Washington Administration?
All is lost!
Darn our favorable showing in the elections!
Why did this have to happen to us?
Man, I'm cashing out! If CNN says so, that's enough for me!
What a Load? If "stupid is as stupid does" then Clinton was doomed to be immersed in Scandal. But G.W. Bush has a lot more sense about him. These morons in the media will say anything. What kind of people want the President to crap out? Clinton was a screw up, and everybody said so but the media. Our President has done a fine job, and the majority of people know it, but the media keeps up the ridiculous drumbeat.
Well now that they (dems) are talking scandals means that they have accepted getting their asses kicked in the election and they're going right to their handy playbook of slander. It's going to be a long four years for them, even though the next presidential election cycle will be going full tilt 2 1/2 years from now.
PresBush has a specific agenda for his second term and I'll bet he gets a lot of it accomplished in the next two years.
They've already shot their wad on the National Guard non-story.
Why do I get the feeling that Bush's second term is going to be incredibly productive, with again, no significant problems or scandals, and common sense accomplishments that establish this administration as one of America's finest ever?
New flash and scandal for the Democrats who will seek an impeachment.
It has been learned, that this President, sleeps with his OWN wife!!!!!!
CNN--is that thing still on?
These dimwits. How could they ever IMPEACH a president when his party has a good control of both the House and the Senate? They'll try (on Valeri Plame and Abu Graib) but they won't get far. I almost hope they try it, so they can drain money and resources so we can get even stronger for the midterms and pick up even more Senators and Representatives, and seal the deal with a solid Supreme Court (no help from Specter!) by early 2009.
Have you seen their ratings lately? It's not that common of a mistake.
I was in Cleveland that night.
No, he isn't doomed.
Yes, they plan to find or more accurately "create" a scandel in hopes it will derail his ability to mark a conservative agenda.
"Conventional wisdom" is nothing more than talking heads sitting about trying to influence the historical future by pre-judging it. I live to turn conventional wisdom on its head, as has been the case the past four years.
The way I see this is that ever since Nixon they have viewed this as their backup strategy in wake of a loss. We destroy its effectiveness when they attempt it against Bush, we sever it's usefulness in future against other Republicans.
They're playing the misunderestimation game again. You'd think they'd figure it out eventually.
I heard that they were already to start impeachment that he lied about WMD these people are sicken.
Let 'em go! They'll alienate about 50% of the dummy's base and the 2006 congessional races will continue to fall for the republicans. Go left go! You're turning more and more folks against you. That sliver of blue on the west coast will fall off into the ocean! The MSM will surely follow.
And how many of these second-term Presidents added 4 Senators? These morons are grasping at straws. Come January, all your filibusters are belong to us.
So GWB would have been better of losing? IDIOTS!
LOL....thanks for a good laugh..
Truman was the last.
Fear not I try and not watch CNN but I was channel surfing and saw that story. It really is just as Pathetic as you can get. These morons have learned nothing and will continue to make the same mistakes on and on.
Haven't you heard? Nobody watches that stuff anymore, just the losers, and they're likely to say anything.
Bush's second term should be called "Bush Unleashed" because now he can do all the stuff he may have been shy about doing in his first term because he knew the scumbag socialist "old media" would beat him up about it relentlessly. Dubya doesn't have to concern himself with the scumbags anymore - - he is free, FREE!!!!
Let the scumbags of the Democrat left chew on THAT for awhile, lol.
While in the car today, I caught just a few minutes of Rush and he played a bunch of sound bites from the weekend talk shows with the libs repeating this garbage. They definitely all got the same fax because their words were nearly verbatim.
SORELOSERS one and all.
If only we'd lost the election. We'd be in much better shape!
Uh huh, and the Redskins game before the election predicts the outcome, high turnout favors Kerry, and the exit polls predict a Bush defeat. When substance isn't on your side, it's time to start rubbing the rabbits foot.
Nothing to fear other 3 or 4 Supreme Court Appointments and a continued PROACTIVE war on terror. I'll take this "lame duck" any day.
quack quack dammit.
You're right that they don't want us to succeed. I just watched a panel discussion on C-Span of "journalists" discussing the election results. They were unhinged.
The panel consisted of Pat Buchanan and a bunch of libs (There were a couple of people I didn't recognize who didn't say anything so maybe they weren't libs).
The lefties were visibly upset with the Bush win. Jonathan Alter actually said, in an attempt to comfort his fellow panelists, that history shows that most second-terms are catastrophic. He was actually trying to cheer them up with the idea that the country would go through a catastrophe.
Ahhh... the problem - watching CNN
So, what could be worse then this last year? The dems are hoping we will eat our own. And they are right. But, there is still hope. If George just stays George and doesn't worry about trying to be anything else, he should be fine.
The 'Rat machinery is already planning it, getting all their ducks in a row and will unleash it sometime within the next year. Count on it.
Pessimism is, in brief, playing the sure game. You cannot lose at it; you may gain. It is the only view of life in which you can never be disappointed. Having reckoned what to do in the worst possible circumstances, when better arise, as they may, life becomes child's play.
