The left may say they think they are winning, but the ones in the know, or the ones who can think, know it’s not happening for Obama this time. They got an inkling at his convention speech. And they knew if for sure after Debate#1. He is just not into winning.
If Obama wanted it and thought it was close, he wouldn’t let the hurricane stop him. Remember in 2008, he said he could run his campaign and manage the financial crisis. So I think he knows they are losing, so why spend a week out wasting your time with the little people. The hurricane gives him an excuse to “pull out” of the states without looking like it.
Dunno. If I had a $35 million compound awaiting me in Hawaii, I probably couldn’t lose the election fast enough!
Good jobs for nobama, the first-Anti-American President, would be casino greeter, washroom attendent or lily-dipper.
HillBuzz hsd a column on this very topic a couple of days ago. They speculate that Obama’s last 83 days will be devoted to securing as much money for Mr. and Mrs. Zero, and their upcoming Barack Obama/Karl Marx Social Justice Center and Car Wash in Hawaii. As during Clinton’s final days, everything will be for sale; ambassadorships, pardons, favorable executive orders, etc. And with lessons learned from the Clintons, Zero and Company will find ways to keep their deals out of the spotlight, and the money trail will never be uncovered.
Clinton has reportedly pocketed well over $100 million since leaving the White House. Obama has the potential to make that much BEFORE leaving office.
Sad to say, but lining his pocket might be the least damaging option for Obama’s final months in office.
You may have a point.
This was around the time in 1980 when Pat Caddell told Carter he was going to lose, within 1% of the actual vote totals.
This is exactly what this corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" must do. Always do what is in favor of the elites who are basically liberals & own both factions.
All that lost potential. Just think of the positive impact he could have had on the black community: encouraging young people to achieve in school, end out of wedlock births, stop the violence.
He could have been a star. He actually made it worse.
You mean the ‘queen mother’, Val Jarrett? Will she be able to give up her power over the controls in Wash. D.C.? Oh boy....
Yup, absolutely. He could have gone down in history. Bigger than MLK, bigger than Roosevelt.
I don't know if he (a) just didn't have a clue of how to do it, or (b) really didn't give a fig one way or another, the whole thing has just been a big act.
I'm leaning toward (b). Could also be both.
He had a 18 month window of opportunity when he could have done practically anything he wanted. Both houses of congress in the tank for him, media in the tank for him. Majority of the population either in the tank or willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Extraordinary levels of good feeling, both domestically and in foreign countries.
He squandered the whole thing on his stupid Obamacare hail-Mary pass. Trying to set up a dynamic that would turn America into a socialist state by setting up a socialized medical system.
That could still happen, I don't know. The medical profession seems to be run by boneheads, although individual practitioners can be great. It's like football. Michael Vick may be a great quarterback, but that doesn't mean he can run the NFL.
Exactly. 2004 will seem quick by comparison.
Bath house Barry is headed back to Man Country in Chi Town baby!
If he accepted asylum somewhere, that would be the end of his SS protection, wouldn’t it?
Thanks Steely Tom. True or not, the nation will be repudiating him and his cadre of America-hating assholes.
I seriously look for him to pardon himself. He’s set so many records and firsts, why not one more. Besides, no other occupier of the Oval Office has done that. His overall pardons list will be an interesting read. Look for Holder’s name to be there front and center.
If so , we need an Amendment to reverse that possibility.
Don’t know if he can or can’t. However, with the way it seems that everyone gives him what he wants, he’ll get his self pardon. He is The Messiah after all.
We should have hearings to scare future governments into better behavior but let Obama go. He will be known forever as the most incompetent President in recent American history. His Nobel Peace Price will be viewed as a joke. His signature legislation will have been overturn, showing clearly how he wasted two years of legislative time while the economy was tanking. Thousands of new Government employees will be laid off as Romney turns back Federal spending to a more reasonable level. Joe Biden's comments that Obamacare was a "big f-cking deal" will continue to ring true, as it will be the only piece of legislation in American history that both changed the composition of Congress and, two years later, removed a President.
Obama will sit in his Hawaiian retirement home having to live with the fact that his "elections have consequences" and "we won" comments to the Republicans doomed his effectiveness for the remaining three years of his Presidency.
He will also wail and gnash his teeth over the fact that he allowed Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to run away with their majorities and saddle Americans with another $7 trillion in debt, while successfully foisting all the blame for the debt on Obama.
Finally, he will someday punch Bill Clinton in the nose, when the Secret Service isn't looking, for having told him back in 2009 that "the reason I lost the Congress back in 1994 was because I didn't pass nationalized healthcare. You have bigger majorities than I did, so press on! You'll ensure Democratic dominance for decades once it passes."
I had a son-in-law who was raised to believe that the world revolved around him. He never learned to persevere or work hard for anything. Obviously, marriage takes work and he had no clue about that.
In any event, Obama’s behavior reminds me so much of him. Just imagine, being President of the United States is work. So I think that ego aside, Obama would be happy not to have a job any more.
