Obama looks scared
Fox News Channel (no link) | 10/26/12

Posted on 10/26/2012 6:16:26 AM PDT by pabianice

Fox just showed clips from Romney and Obama rallies. Romney speaking before a roaring over-flowing 10K seat arena; looks confident and strong, audience roaring with approval at remarks about rebuilding business and the economy. Then Obama, speaking before a small crowd in Michigan, ol' snarly back again, eyes hooded, mouth twisted, full of anger and fear; attacking Romney as the anti-Christ. Audience applauds lightly.

Obama looks and sounds scared and out of ideas.

Wonder what effect the huge Atlantic storm will have on campaigning and election turn-out?

I don’t know about you, but I was being asked to hold my nose and vote for someone as disagreeable as Obama, I probably wouldn’t show up.

Don’t Republicans traditionally benefit from inclement weather? I seem to remember someone on here saying something to that extent.

None, I think. It should blow through a full week before election day. May be some places still struggling with electricity, but they’ll be few and isolated.

Democrats only need a reason to delay elections even if it were not necessary.

I predict storm talk will overcome any final so-called October surprise and negate any final effort by obama team to smear Romney.

God’s very own “October surprise” eh?

The East Coast is the heart of the lamestream MEdia and obama country, but the viewing audience this next week will be more focused on buying bread water and toilet paper than watching obama rallies

He didn't actually say or imply Anti-Christ though, did he? That's just hyperbole on your part, right?

That said, I do expect Obama to get really ugly in the next week and cannot even imagine the depths to which he will sink.

Remember seeing this same thing in past elections.

The guy that was about to lose was always reduced to sad rallies and increasingly tired language.

Both sides are already knowledgeable as to what is about to go down. The Reagan people knew by late October of both 80 and 84, but you go through the motions anyway.

Those are my thoughts as well. Could be wrong but that's what comes to mind first.

However, they do say the system could stall over land and hover for a few days. Even still, I do not think it will effect the elections.

The democrats may try to use it though - to delay elections of whatever. They'll look for any excuse. That could be more of a problem.

This storm sounds like what we got in 1993 (Storm of the Century). Basically a snowicane.

Obama sure is going to miss Air Force One.

Just think how awful it would be to belong to the sedret Service and be assigned to Obama and the Wookie after they leave the White House.

That will be the punishment detail for any SS agent who screws up.

Funny thing about informers, traitors, and similar tools . . . they have an odd habit of not 'lasting' long after they've done the bidding of the puppeteers.

Perhaps the sniveling little sissy has begun to grasp that possibility.

“That will be the punishment detail for any SS agent who screws up.”

Sadly, there are at least 3 recent (and very public) instances of SS agents being very un-professional. Either standards have slipped for SS agents, or affirmative action has lowered the bar on quality & expectation for performance.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, this country is being destroyed. I guess my grandparents were right when they warned me that terrible days were ahead...

If past elections are any indicator, Obama will lose as the independents break for Romney. However, if Obama truly has this great ground game and is able to motivate the illegal alients, welfare recipients, the disenfranchised, and the clueless to vote for him I suppose he has a chance. Still, if Obama does make this happen it would be an historic achievement. Let’s face it, we all worry this just might happen because Obama is more of a cult figure than an actual leader.

On the other hand, regular everyday people know what and who this guy is. There is much momentum on our side, possibly even a title wave moving against Obama and the last midterm elections and the results in Wisconsin are strong harningers of this fact. The truth is, save for the supreme court decision a few months ago, Obama has had no significant political victories in two years. This means something!!!

If Obama does win, he’ll be mandated to do nothing except bitch about the Republicans and I’ll feel like the Lion King did when Scar took over Pride Rock. Ha—...Whoopie Goldberg supported that, too.

Obama is turning out to just be mean and nasty, and that is coming across to people who are watching/listening.

Especially in debates 2 and 3, that is what the audience saw: a mean and nasty community organizer.

That is turning many people off. Obama is doing himself more damage than he is damaging his opponent.

So do I. The 'Obama takes your virginity' video is only the beginning. I would not be surprised if he implied in some sly way, always with plausible deniability, that Romney was the anti-Christ.

You know what would be funny? If thousands attended Obama's last rally, and did things like scratch their cheek with their middle finger, turn their backs on him, glare silently at him, etc. All the things that the cops couldn't throw you out for

Say what?

Somebody has been pushing this meme hard among university students - whether its's disgruntled evangelicals who hate Romney's Mormonism or disgruntled feminists who see Romney stealing their free birth control or disgruntled academics for whom any sort of spending cuts really would seem anti-Christ-inspired, I'm not sure.

I think it is less about Michelle and more about the big money backers he has disappointed by turning out to be a do-little president. He squandered opportunities to further the 'progressive' agenda.

Only New Hampshire and Pennsylvania are in play in the Northeastern region. Romney only stands a good chance of winning in the Granite State, where he has a summer residence; the Keystone State has been a repeated disappointment for the GOP. If there are heavy snows, it will likely not have much impact in the Philadelphia area, the heart of liberal darkness in Pennsylvania. Heavy snows will adversely impact the less liberal central and western portions of the state. However, these effects will likely be over by November 6.

Do not feel to bad for them. Think how Bill Clinton spends his time now. He makes $100K plus giving speeches at liberal college campuses all over the country/world. Plus O will get a book deal worth $10+ million. He will then travel the country promoting that book. However, they will not be flying on Air Force One. :)

Good point.

After he loses, he will still be the president until Romney is sworn in. And he has already shown that he has nothing but contempt for the law and the Constitution. Not telling what he will to our country in that time period.

Heavy snows or especially rain in Philadelphia would have an adverse effect on Obama. The unenthused Dems would stay the heck home. However, it won’t matter because Romney’s not even trying to win here. He’s not running ads. Occasionally, we see some from PACs. Quite frankly, I don’t get it. From all appearances, 0’s base in the Philadelphia area is completely demoralized. The low level of enthusiasm for 0 among African Americans is downright shocking.

I’m listening to NPR right now. They run a clip of Romney talking about Obama, having nothing of substance to offer, talking about smaller and smaller things, while he is addressing the big challenges.

Then they run a clip of Obama saying, and I paraphrase, I’m gonna... ... ... Keep on keepin’ on.

It was hysterical.

Obama is scared because even in his base he can only depend on the takers to support him. His base of stupid fooled Democrats grows shorter by the day. Depending on the takers to vote is a risky strategy but it is all he has.
Think about it, you have deceived all your real friends and you need a reference for a new job, or to keep the one you have. Would you want to be dependent on a homeless guy you gave some change to show up looking decent to save your job?

Complete BS. He accomplished a lot, in fact he and Polosi completely confiscated every American’s physical being. As a result, individual liberty was completely destroyed. In fact, now they can PUNISH any individual for INACTIVITY!

All of that was upheld by their fellow DC elitists on the course. Don’t fool yourself, Obama accomplished all that is needed for the Marxist Utopians to obliterate all of us!

-- Obama is turning out to just be mean and nasty ... --

Our neighbor's youngest, a girl about 10, I think, told us she doesn't like Obama. I asked "Why not?" The answer was "Because he is mean."

I figure she's following somebody's lead, even though she is pretty independent minded for a 10 year old. Just the same, that's the impression she has.

I think it's accurate. He's mean, petty, juvenile, "entitled," arrogant, etc. Not a nice person to be around.

It just doesn’t feel like the rats ground game is what it was in 2008. Our local college hosted a Ryan event and there wasn’t even a token counter demonstration.

Obama visited our city in 2008 and there’s no talk of him returning this year, yet Romney drew 14,000 — several times what Obama drew in 2008.

...and the state GOP has already hit 2 million voter contacts in a state with perhaps 1.5 million GOP voters, and they’re pushing for 3 million by election day. ...and their screen is potential GOP voters who aren’t consistent getting to the polls, they don’t contact certain voters. The aim is between 3 and 6 personal contacts to all the people they identify as conservative independents and GOP voters who need a “push.”
