-Tide will soon turn against Obama-
post-gazette ^ | Jack Kelly

Posted on 12/11/2012 3:38:32 PM PST by virgil283

"Campaign "bundlers" for President Barack Obama have received, on average, $21,000 in federal loans and grants for every dollar they contributed....The president's supporters who aren't crony capitalists will discover shortly that Obamanomics isn't so good for them ......Community College of Allegheny County will cut back the hours of some instructors to avoid an additional $6 million in costs mandated by the provision in Obamacare that employees who work 30 or more hours a week must have health insurance.....Restaurants and retail stores have lots of employees. Profit margins typically are low. They'll be hit hardest......Obamacare doesn't go fully into effect until 2014 but already has cost more than 18,000 jobs..... Millions of lost jobs means millions fewer paying taxes, millions more in need of government assistance

No. It won’’t. I heard this crap from 2008-2012. I heard all the conservative pundits and read all the conservative blogs and ALL of them were full of it. So here we go again. Someone telling us how bad Obama is and how the world will end and everyone will come to their senses.

AIN’T ... GONNA ... HAPPEN.

So time to get out of this idiot bubble and start a Conservative Party. Or . .we can do in 2016 what we did in 2012 and blame it on magic.

We said that the first time around...and it did. Yet it made no real difference as the marxist takeover is well underway and nearing its final stage. Keep your powder dry so that you may have a good score at the end.

Oh, geez, not this crap again!! There is no way in heck you can start yet another "third party" and effect any kind of change unless you're wanting to help accelerate the downward spiral to full-blown communism.

We already have around 40 "third parties", isn't that enough? None of them have ever accomplished anything positive and neither will another one.

I think we may as well start carving the face of the leader of the Choom Gang in Mount Rushmore, since he will be exalted above all others, he will win yet another Nobel Peace Prize (but he’ll keep the money), he will where laurels, and he will hold a scepter. Oh, and he will have his own mountain. It will be a volcano with the lit end of his doobie on the peak where the smoke comes out. He will be a living, breathing, god among god, superliterate or the literati, super choom of the choomerati...

The Chinese will pay the cost of the carving. It will run over budget, run out of money after only carving the joint, and the Republicans will be blamed...

He, who will never be criticized, will be the immortal toke[n]...

No, the tide will not turn against Obama. With the Left in control of our schools and colleges, the news media and the entertainment industry, Obama will skate no matter how disastrous his presidency. I expect him to serve a minimum of two more terms—and he may be president well into the 2040’s.

“With the Left in control”

Let’s stop labeling these people as “the left.” Let’s call them what they are, socialists, communists or Marxists. Let them chose which of these three categories they prefer to be identified with.

If Obama was actually increasing in popularity I would be worried but his followers are getting smaller and more marginalized. People are going to wake up for sure when insurance rates rise through the ceiling or they start hearing that there might not be any doctors available, long waiting lists, and other direct effects.

“....but his followers are getting smaller and more marginalized.”

.
Wishful thinking. I heard the same observation on November 5 shouted from the rooftop by established sages like Rush and Hannity.

Remember the landslide they predicted?

The interest and engagement levels of young people increased in the campaign’s final weeks to 2008 levels which confused a lot of analysts but the president was still clearly beatable.

I differ on the blame game. Obama ran on raising taxes. He won on class warfare. Let them all suffer. Conservatives will weather it. When the policy fails, it’s got his name on it.

"...not this crap again!!"

Yep, and it stinks like what it is - mindless drivel.

We HAVE all kinds of 'third' parties - nearly 20 new parties formed since 2000 alone. More than half of them were 'conservative' the remainder far leftists. None of them have any political power, and their members vote either Republican or Democrat.

The third party with any clout to speak of today is that group of people who claim to be 'Independent' - but even this party votes Democrat or Republican - a thin majority of which tend to vote Republican.

New parties, and party splintering has long been at the root of weakening both Conservatism in the Republican Party and weakening of Liberalism in the Democrat Party. Interestingly there are more socialist splinter parties than there are conservative. A good thing, as I see it.

If conservatives want to improve their political fortunes through political parties, they need only to show up and fight to keep liberals out of the Republican Party - yet less than .02 percent of the population bothers to ever darken the doors of either the Republican or Democrat party in their own city and state. That is the failure of the citizenship, not the political parties themselves.

Bottom line - most citizens are acutely politically ignorant - and worse, 98% of them are totally politically inactive for 99% of every year.

Now that is funny. I don’t care who your are.

Sure Conservatives will still be around, but we will have a neutered voice and the house speaker will cry.

Is any other college doing this? I ask this because this is the only one I see referenced. Weakens the case that's being made.

I'm familiar with one community college that has over 40,000 students, which for several years has hired as few full time instructors as possible, relying as much as possible on part-timers. Some have part-time jobs at other colleges or private schools or some, even with PhDs, are hired part-time. This situation was generated in large part by state budget cuts and an influx of students who couldn't get in 4 year schools or couldn't afford them.

Yes. I’m an adjunct at a community college where we aren’t allowed to work more than 11 credit hours a semester. That works out to 25 hours, maybe it’s 27 hours, a week. We’ve never been allowed to work 30 hours a week. We were advised today that they are reviewing their policies. My husband works at a four-year college where most new hires are Ph.D.s who are given one-year contracts as lecturers. It’s shameful.

The banks, Wall Street, oil and insurance companies, so many targets to blame, why ever blame Obama, who means well, and he cares about you, unlike the Republicans.

Not a chance. We are on the big downward slide that even Odumbo can’t stop. The POTUS is just a pawn.

Yeah, it’s pretty evident from the Kool-Aid drinkers in the commentary. Sheesh, what a bunch of asses. I’m sick and tired of all this yapping and “discourse.” I want to start knocking heads together.

We already have around 40 "third parties", isn't that enough?

Math is a difficult subject. Somehow you are supposed to be able to spin off a new conservative party from the current forty something percent GOP vote and result in an election winning majority. Same logic as trying to take control of the Senate by replacing moderate Republican Senators with Democrats.

Obama’s supporters don’t have any skin in the game so they will be unaffected by Obamacare or rising taxes.

They don’t work at all, so the threat of cutting hours means nothing to them.

Just as Rush said today, businesses who cut employees’ hours will be vilified as greedy SOB’s who only care about making as big a profit as possible, even if that means screwing the “little guy”. Obama will lead the charge against them.

The HHS witch, Sebelius, will soon announce a new law preventing businesses from reducing employees’ hours - just wait and see. Obama makes the laws now. Congress is irrelevant.

All your profits are belong to Obama, because you didn’t build that.
