Obama To Win Landslide Re-Election in 2012 (A liberal fool's prediction-note the date of article)
Alan Colmes ^ | 4/20/2010 | William K. Wolfrum

Posted on 09/09/2011 10:38:55 AM PDT by Signalman

It’s April 20, 2010, and let me call it now – President Barack Obama will easily win re-election in 2012. Any discussion you hear about the 2012 presidential election is just a way to wile away the hours between the next Lindsay Lohan and/or Kim Kardashian news.

There’s three indisputable reasons to call this race so early:

1) The economy will be better in 2011 than it is now.

It’s almost impossible not to improve the economy after eight years of George W. Bush’s mad and often confusing slay-the-beast onslaught. It was as if the kids from “Jersey Shore” were running the place. It was a situation.

Basically, if unemployment numbers are less than 9%, or Joe Biden doesn’t accidentally lose all our money, it’s a non-issue.

2) Obama’s re-election campaign will be a shock & awe effort of the likes the political world has ever seen:

Imagine combining the Super Bowl and Carnival, then firing off repeated gold-plated orgasm flairs. That’s going to be every day for 18 months of the Obama campaign. They may do the whole thing in 3-D and have Kathryn Bigelow direct. And that was their first one. The first one will look like a Jr. High pep rally compared to the bombardment of sense and emotions about to be released on the U.S.

3) All the GOP has to run against him are Republicans:

While ranked third, this really is the icing on the cake. The Republicans have not one person who could beat Barack Obama. Not one. The closest thing to a winnable candidate they have is Meghan McCain. Trust me, poll it. Unfortunately, she’s like 19 or something, so she’s out.

As for Sarah Palin, she’ll sooner co-star in a “Very Special Episode of Alf,” (where she’ll frag Alf from a helicopter) before she’ll be considered a serious Presidential candidate by “Real America.”

Newt Gingrich? Bring it. Just bring it.

Mitt Romney? Mitt Romney wouldn’t vote for Mitt Romney.

Scott Brown would be the most attractive candidate, but Tea Partiers will never forgive him for occasionally voting like a human, and he seems far more astute than to commit political suicide at the start of a promising career.

Even Mike Huckabee has to be sick of Mike Huckabee.

Seriously, they have nobody. And the “Policy of Hell No” won’t exactly be winning fans after some voters have already benefited from the health care reform law.

I suppose it is possible a surprise candidate will stun us all and present a real challenge to Obama. Except that I just wrote that to cover my bases; and trust me, there’s no one. The GOP would be best off giving Bob Dole or Walter Mondale their nomination. At least we know they can handle it.

So let me call it now and beat the rush: Obama wins the 2012 presidential election by a landslide over a horrifyingly inept Republican candidate. I guarantee it.

And I guarantee this, as well: The mainstream political talkers will spend a great deal of time discussing how the “Tea Party” somehow made a difference.

PS: Just to come off as slightly topical, let me add my prediction for the 2010 Congress races. About 93 percent of incumbents will keep their jobs.

Kim Kardashian was a household word back then? Who knew!

I just heard of her a few weeks ago. I’m going back under my rock now.

Alan Colmes masturbatory fantasy about Obama coasting to re-election is both amusing and pathetic. The article is out of date now, but I suspect Colmes will continue his self-delusional rants until next November. However, there are a lot of Rats already abandoning Obama and that trend will only accelerate as the economy continues to suffer under Hussein’s mismanagement.

If Alan Colmes predicted it would be hot and dry out tomorrow in Death Valley, I would put out pots to collect the profuse rainfall that would be almost inevitable.

Alan Colmes should be on America’s Got Talent. He could be a human bubble head with the song ‘’Beautiful Dreamer’’ playing in the background.

Well, I think we have just established that William K. Wulfrum (whoever the heck that is) is probably the dumbest person on the face of the earth, and that includes the entire cast of Jackass (both living and dead).

Not even Dick Morris has ever had so many predictions all be completely wrong in one place.

“just a way to wile away the hours between the next Lindsay Lohan and/or Kim Kardashian news”

So now we know what’s important to Colmes.

Good image. Still, I keep hearing ‘Dreamer (you’re nothing but a dreamer, now you put your hands in your head, oh no!’) by Supertramp.

Hard to visualize beautiful and Alan Colmes in the same images somehow...

Alan Colmes is a consummate idiot and broken glass FUBO synchopant. Colmes makes Bob Beckel look somewhat rational ... pretty hard to do

I’d love to shove this into his Skeletor Faced mouth and make him eat every piece of paper. Maybe add a little mayonnaise to help him swallow it.

This thread has the most references to Alan Colmes I've seen since he left Hannity and Colmes. Great career move./s I thought he got sucked into a black hole.

PS: Just to come off as slightly topical, let me add my prediction for the 2010 Congress races. About 93 percent of incumbents will keep their jobs.

The 112th United States Congress began January 3, 2011. There are at least 13 new senators (12R, 1D) and 93 new representatives (84R, 9D). The freshmen are overwhelmingly Republican.

So much for their prediction.

HA-HA-HA!

if unemployment numbers are less than 9%

Umm... nope. Still 9.1%.

Brilliant! And not even close.

I count three strikes.

Colmes is an idiot! That being said I believe that "The Divine One" will be reelected for the following reasons: voter fraud on a scale never seen before in this country; a vast number of bloc voters, blacks, Asians, homosexuals, Jews, Mexicans and degenerate white liberals like Colmes; voter intimidation such as black thugs in beret's carrying truncheons standing in front of critical polling places. Once the effete degenerate whites see the black thugs scowling faces hundreds of potential white voters will flee the polling places in abject terror. A Billion dollar campaign chest. A biased corrupt Media that will recreate his image as our Lord and Savior. Three weeks of Media treatment and all will kneel at his feet.

If he didn’t win a landslide the first time, he certainly won’t the second time. The last democrat to win a landslide was LBJ and there had been an assasination and the demonization of the republican candidate and all the pro-government waves going in his direction.

Bill Clinton got 49% of the vote and less states than his first election.

Obama won’t get Indiana, Ohio, Virginia or North Carolina this time. He’ll likely lose Florida and New Hampshire. Colorado, Nevada, and Wisconsin are on the brink and his polls are dropping in Pennsylvania and New York.

You can put the numbers together for a victory, maybe, but not a landslide.

What’s more likely is that he’ll be thrown out of office in a landslide of 1980 proportions.

Tired of being the life of the party?

Change into a nine-year-old Hindu boy, get rid of your wife,
And it walks your dog, and it doubles on sax
Doubles on sax, you can jump back Jack, see you later alligator
See you later alligator
And it steals your car
It gets rid of your gambling debts, it quits smoking

In Novembers of 2012, after the votes are tallied, we will see that it will be a very close race. Not because Zero will actually get the votes of the American people, but because, given the history of Democrat tactics, we can expect that somewhere between 15% - 20% of the vote count will be fraudulent.

The GOP candidate will have to really amass a true landslide to overcome this fraud.

I'm afraid that if the obvious fraud is declared a winner there will be many people saying, “lock and load.”

*******

Colmes made another, less known, prediction back in 2010: "In 2012, a lot of Americans will be begging me to return to Fox tv to re-join Hannity so that we can resurrect our once highly popular Hannity-Colmes show." Yeah right.

LOL.

Forget that. At that point, you had better learn how to build an ark and do it darn quickly.
