Vanity - 2012 October Surprise Prediction Thread

Posted on 10/12/2012 1:11:13 PM PDT by Perdogg

Okay, I know it is three weeks away from October Surprise Friday. You know that time of year where you gather around the dinner table for the traditional Ocotber Surprise Friday meal and reminisce about the past October Surprises, who could forget 2000.

Any way, since we don't have election day anymore in the traditional since, and by the time the first Friday before the election comes around, it may be too late to influence the outcome. Like the Christmas shopping season that has been extending from Halloween to the 24th of December, the October Surprise may come at any momement between now and the next three weeks.

So go at it.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: 2012election; octobersurprise

October surprise 1 : Obama’s BLS faked the unemployement numbers and the media has been reporting that as truth.

I think it’s going to be a “sex scandal”, maybe accusations of workplace “inappropriate behavior” with Gloria Alred at the helm or maybe accusations of homosexual behavior.
Their job is to turn off Republicans and to return the democrats that are shifting towards Romney back towards Obama.

I predict another German goal in the next 20 minutes to make the final score against Ireland 6-0.

That would not be a surprise.

I think Obama will do a Clinton and instead of a cruise missile destroying an aspirin factory in the desert, he will launch Predators at Libyan “covert cells responsible for the embassy attack. How will we know it’s the right people? Because he says so.

I think they’re going to play the Mormonism card, not sure how, but they are running out of ammo and it might be the last card they can play.

The October Surprise coullld very well be WW3:

The Syrian situation will suddenly get worse, with Turkey escalating —more shelling and maybe a bunch of cross-border attacks.

Then some really baaaaaad pro-Assad guys in silly clothing chanting, “We’re bad and we haaate Obama..!” are caught on 30 cameras using a small amount of chem weapons somewhere in Syria —the chem attack victims are some diverse Syrians shrieking, “We thirst for freedom, and we love the Choom Gang..” writhe in agony, dying from the chem fumes.

That’s a “red line”, of course, and it compels the USA to get involved directly, on some level. Then Russia gets involved. Then Turkey appeals to NATO.

Then Obama gets to act like the really sage leader, providing leadership for the 10-minute increments that Vallerie Jarrett pulls him off the golf course, or out of consultations with Da Pimp wid a Limp.

1. Intervention in Syria - this won't really have much of a "rally 'round the flag" effect that is necessary for an effective "October Surprise", but what, if any, of this regime's actions have been effective?
2. Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran - this could result in a bounce if done properly and timed right. It is dangerous, but Barry has no qualms about sacrificing American lives, money, etc. - if it benefits Barry.
3. Declare martial law to some degree, under some false pretense. I don't really see how this could be justified, but since he got the supremes to go along with 0bamascare, anything is possible.
4. Have the BLS declare that unemployment is down to 7.8% - a GOOD "October Surprise" must be believable. This is not and has fallen flat with everyone, except Idiot Joe Biden and the dims, declaring BS! Certainly those out of work don't believe it.
5. Crash the stock market - blame it on hackers, outside forces, etc. This might be easily done and would throw people into a panic - this might be how he declares martial law, as well.

The current administration’s October surprise will be what they are best at pulling off. They will do nothing.

Harry Reid will announce he has multiple unnamed but credible sources from Las Vegas who say they saw Romney looking at the lingerie pages in a Sears catalog when Romney was 16. CNN will run with it around the clock.

I’ll go with what’s behind Door #1, “Get us involved in a land war in Syria.” Dear Leader has just sent American “military advisers” to camp out on the Jordanian-Syrian border in order to make Jordan safe for monarchy and offer the Syrians / Hezbollah / any other whack-job in the area a tempting target.

I don’t think he has the cajones to bomb anything. He certainly cannot bring himself to start a war with Muslims, even if Valerie would let him. And he has to fear a revolt by the Code Pink segment of his base.

His October Surprise will be a huge vote buying giveaway of some type, not a military strike.

I'm not sure what it's going to be but for some reason I keep thinking it will happen on the 25th and will involve violence.

Something racial. They need to get the black vote out. They already have done the black church burning. Video or audio tape of old-school Mormons saying something racist...

Bill Clinton orchestrates a big ole U-Turn by the Teamsters who withdraw their endorsement of the Soviet Trained Kenyan Usurper [STKU] and sidle up to Mitt Romney.

Then, a few hours later:

Hillary! resigns as Secretary of State.

This sounds the most likely. It is the kind of sleaze his Chicago thug handlers have experience in.

1) The Friday, Nov. 2nd (I know, it’s not ‘October’) jobs numbers will show that unemployment is at 7.3% — which is B.S., of course.

2) Kim Yung-Un (sp?), the North Korean dictator, will come out in support of Barack Obama for POTUS, as will Hamas and Hezbollah.

My prediction: Obama will try something but it will be ineffectual; Romney still wins by a landslide. People are simply sick of Empty Chair Zero.

Moochelle’s previous sex change operation reverses itself and we find that Barry has been married to Michael LaVaughn Robinson the understudy to the actor who played Chewbacca.

Obama doesn’t have a September surprise....Wall Street does...

It will crash.... Wall Street knows the money is gone and no more bail outs...obama as their “John “ paying for their whoring is over...

Crash the economy 10 days out of the election.... He can never recover...

Time to throw the “John” out before he starts asking for it f or free....since he’s been paying you so well for four years....

Bankers need a new “John” who knows their game and might play along not to crash and burn the economy ...

IMHO
