Skip to comments.2012 Electionm is Cemented for Obama (4 more years is a done deal)
Posted on 05/01/2011 9:53:47 PM PDT by wac3rd
One of the most hated men in history has been killed by our troops by a Commander-in-Chief who has done everything in his power to demean, de-fund, impose demeaning homosexuality and restrict the ability of our troops to fight terror, including pursuing civilian trials for captured would-be terrorists.
Let's be fair here, the average American hasn't a clue what century the French & Indian War was fought in and probably cannot tell you who who Joe Biden is, so the mainstream media will run with this for all its worth. The Media will give 100% credit to Obama and mark my words, the RINOs will kow-tow even more and the Dems will be emboldened.
The moronic college kids and their Commie professors will forget all their anti-American, pro-terror rhetoric just enough for Novermber 2012 to come around. The media is fully invested in Obama and cheered and lied for him even when to most Americans he was failing. This single act is their inverted Pearl Harbor, they will fly the "Obama killed Osama when Bush Couldn't" forever.
This moniker will follow Obama forever, like how Watergate will always be tagged to Richard Nixon and how Bush I will be credited with toppling the Iraqis in 1991.
This will be forever spun by journalists and a crowning moment, a reason that Obama is tough and another way to let him have his way with the economy, jobs, climate change, unions, Libya, nuclear power, Obama Care, homosexual marriage, gun confiscation, tax hikes, gas prices, educational failure, amnesty...the butter will be softened forever for Obama, he will not need a steak knife, merely a butter knife to get things done. Look for the EPA, FDA, FCC and every other attack dog regulatory agency to become hyper-aggressive in the coming months and years.

If Obama or the Liberals ask for another company to be smashed by Government regualations and there is any pushback, he can always pull the "I killed Osama Bin Laden" card. Forever. When my grandkids turn on History Channel in 2050, they will see a documentary showing a black President killing a boogeyman and then returning to the White House for another 4 years, bringing Socialism to the United States and eventually ushering the New World Order run by Soros and the Global Elites.
The celebration was staged also to coincide with the World Workers Day on May 1st, so the Marxists, Communists, Open Borders and Unions can all rememeber this as a day of celebration, and rally their troops to push for more Stalinist programs. Nothing is an accident with these Democrats (Axelrod, Soros, MSM).
Mark my words, unless there is another attack on US soil in the next 1.5 years, Obama will remain President through 2016...focus on the next VP pick, as they will be grooming whomever runs with Obama in 2012 for the 2016 election...like the Chinese, there is a master plan years ahead of time, as the dimbulb GOP has morons like Lindsay Graham and pack-a-day Boehner weep over a 0.0003% cut from an anticipated budget.
The end of America as we know it has come, the collapse is imminent and you should prepare now for the coming insurrection.
An evil madman is dead and another is still in power at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
God Bless, FReepers, pray hard in the coming months.
Most people will be happy with him until they need to fill their gas tank again.
With all due respect, this does not cement the election for Obama. Don’t give up.
To quote (shudder) the great philosopher, James Carville, “It’s the economy, stupid.”
Bush got Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the 9/11 mastermind. Bin Laden was spiritual leader
I disagree because this does not fix $4 gas,hgh food prices or the high unemployment rate.
isn’t this what they said about Bush 41 and the Gulf War One???? How did that work out???
I suspect most people -- including many Freepers -- didn't even have Osama bin Laden on their radar screens anymore.
The 2012 election will hinge on the same issue that has always been the one and only issue in any election: the state of the U.S. economy. Inflation and (real) unemployment don't lie. If you don't believe me, just ask Jimmy Carter.
“(4 more years is a done deal)”
NO EFFIN’ WAY
This is way too early to cement any re election - and besides - Obama and the liberals will blow it by almost apologizing for it in the coming days.
You mean like George H.W. Bush’s reelection after Desert Storm?
No people have short memories, This does not assure anything. Obama really did nothing, all the ground work was done by George Bush. Besides 911 was 10 years ago, the pain of it has been reduced.
Watch Obama numbers in 3 weeks. Gas is still high, unemployment is still high, our debt is still outrageous.
“(4 more years is a done deal)”
NO EFFIN’ WAY
Any credit to Obama deserved or otherwise will evaporate at the next gas station fill-up.
No way. This will give a one week bump at most.
Nice troll post douchewad.
It doesn’t mean anything! Americans are rightfully celebrating right now but this joy will fade in weeks, if not days. Real world goes on. The capture of Saddam Hussein helped W in the polls for a few days and then we went on.
Wacky, you’re dreaming!
And what are “ regualations “? Your credibility hangs on your literacy!
I couldn’t agree with your statement more. Besides, there will be little change in the status of the “overseas military contingency. “
GHW Bush had a 91% approval after the first Gulf War.
Didn’t do him a bit of good a year and a half later.
And in 1991 Bush 41 had 90% approval rating and he was considered unbeatable.
Headline is BS.
Maybe if it was October, 2012. But it isn’t.
WOW! You give up easy.
The Pakistani’s wanted Osama bin Laden dead or they wouldn’t have allowed this to happen. They’re cutting deals with the Chinese, and the Chinese government doesn’t want to deal with Al Qaeda. This act turns Al Qaeda’s full interest towards the west, exclusively.
Obama is no genius and the Liberals/Progressives will get some play off of this, but not all the way until Nov. 2012.
It’s the economy that will sink Obama as a candidate.
Bush said he wanted Obama “Dead or Alive”.
Besides - 0bama despises the military.
Different time, different country, but remember Winston Churchill was bounced as England’s PM literally 2 months after WW2 ended in Europe (July, 1945). The war with Japan was still ongoing.
Nope, no way, for several reasons. This means nothing to Obama’s liberal base. Conservatives still won’t like him. The economy is still in the tank (no pun intended). Some other thug will take OBL’s place and terror will still be a threat. We still have 2 wars (3 counting Libya) ongoing. These feelings of national unity are very short-lived. It didn’t even last that long after 9-11.
If Obamaflation keeps up, he will not be re-elected.
Mark my words...............you’re a lousy prognosticator. This “cements” nothing! And the euphoria won’t last.
or George Herbert Walker Bush. Plus God only knows what kind of mayhem this killing of Osama will release in the Middle East, Europe and even in the USA...
B.S. This will last for a week or two art most. Thank G*d this didn’t happen a week before the election the campaign hasn’t even started. 0bama has to run on $5 gallon gas, rampant unemployment and inflation.
Yeah, but he was also running slick Willy who you must admit, was an excellent speaker and a very good politician. They didn't call him slick Willy for nothing.
We need a slick conservative
I’ll have whatever you are smoking man, must be some gooooood stuff!
My first thought at reading this: Are you out of your FReeping mind?
I read it twice. I still ask:
Are you out of your FReeping mind?
More than once tonight, I heard that more than 70 percent of Americans thought Osama would never be caught or killed.
This (OBL death) is good news, to be sure. But it will be long forgotten and of no benefit for Obama in a few weeks.
Oh please, 3 days can be a life time in politics, 18 months is a political eternity. You cannot use the events of this day as any kind of electorate predictor.
Bush got Saddam Hussein too. I don’t think this changes anything. I think we should celebrate OBL’s death and worry about 2012 later. It makes us look petty to deny his victory and makes them look petty if they exploit it. This was a victory for America, for the victims of 9-11. and for the soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen, who have suffered and even died because of OBL. We should all just celebrate it tonight. That’s just my opinion and I am taking my own advice.
Tactic of a liberal you just used
I AGREE with you..this does not seal it for 0bama in 2012...it was no shoe in for Bush the first after the first gulf war...
And the domestic issues etc will bubble up after a few days when this cools off the front page. And now I would bet we will see some actions by the sleeper cells around the world that have been encouraged to act on their own. And a hightened travel alert has been issued for all Americans travelling world wide so we can expect to see enhanced TSA actions at airports but large malls and train stations etc where ever there are large gatherings there could be trouble so folks need to be aware..according to the state dept just now.
Now...with the death of OBL...we now at least know why we were placed on FPCON Bravo...
This phrase still rings true: "It's the economy, stupid"
Not a chance. Obama’s chickens have come home to roost.
I’d bet my life that the long legged Mac Daddy and his big dyke of a wife were high-fiving when 9/11 happened.
Obama was probably teaching Michelle how to ululate.
You are a FReeper, like myself, who works in the private sector or law enforcement/military who is most likely male, with a family and is either Christian or Jewish.
I understand that dollars do not fall off of trees unless you have a rich uncle who dies and leaves you a lot of cash; you work in the mailroom of Microsoft or Google and in the 1990s or you hit six numbers on PowerBall.
The American public craves a hero, even an anti-hero to be larger than life, that’s why the Lefty Media could never slam Reagan, he was a folk hero, in some ways.
We see all the bad stuff, the foreclosures, the near 20% real unemployment, the deficit at $14T, the regulations and growing power of unchecked Socialist government, the illegal invasion, the Muslim push across the globe...
We need a hero, this gives “hope” to all the people who were still second guessing their Obama vote in 2008.
The cement is drying.
With the attnetion span of most the USA, I bet this euphoria only lasts a week assuming there are no huge incidents from Al quaeda... If so, it is only a couple of days.
remember then George Sr.’s numbers were SKY HIGH after he invaded Iraq? the 2 years later Clintoon won? In 2 weeks Obama will get NO CREDIT for this.
>>>2012 Electionm is Cemented for Obama (4 more years is a done deal)
People will vote their pocketbooks, and the [rice of gas ain’t gonna get better soon, the price of food is going up, unemployment is still in the crapper - The 0ne will go down.
Had this happened in Late October 2012, I might think it could do something for The 0ne’s re-election chances.
