Skip to comments.Why Obama May Lose in 2012
Posted on 07/06/2009 2:59:23 PM PDT by RobinMasters
A very wise friend suggested to me that Obama's second term is an inevitability. I have to take issue with him because it seems all too clear to me that the president has abandoned the ironclad strategy for victory. What he should have done was to dedicate himself to fixing the banking/financial system, to restore its foundations, to bring about better rules, and to restore public confidence in the lifeblood of the system. Had he done that, eight years would have been a foregone conclusion.
Instead, he has made the financial system an interesting sideline to go along with his attempts to bring about the eschaton through salvific, wishing-makes-it-so public policy. His current path stands a decent chance of returning the nation to stagflation. And no politician can wear that millstone and make it look good.

Who says he’ll make it that far? Once he loses the house or senate all holds are off.
Eruditious pontification abounds!
Please Lord, let all these Obamanuts think it’s in the bag for the second term. It so isn’t. Just let them think so, though, because they will really muck things up for themselves just thinking it is.
What’s to stop him from doing 8 years? Will there still be millions of stupid people in the U.S. in 2012?
Take that WFB!
Dude is way over thinking this. It’s bec he is a scum sucking socialist loser.
If leftists succeed in ending Presidential term limits, then Obama may be President for life. Leftists really don’t care about the proper interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, and they might decide to even end having any more future elections in the U.S.!
Eruditious pontification abounds!
Delectable polysyllabic bandage.
Less electoral votes than the other guy. That would be my guess.
I firmly believe he is out to wreck us so badly that there won’t be much of us left by 2012. He’s thinking “The 2012 election be damned, I have my agenda”.
A politician CAN wear that millstone & look good if he's got the Press protecting him.
And this writer's thesaurus must be as worn as a five generation family bible.
All together now: Don’t immanentize the eschaton!
We can’t wait until 2012! We need his Marxist/Muslim a$$ kicked out NOW- before he finishes destroying America!
It will increase by November ‘12, plus leftists will probably succeed in adding illegal immigrants and almost all criminals to their total leftist voter rolls, that’s if leftists even have any more future elections in the U.S. It’s also important to note that ACORN is doing the next census count!
“Hopefully he will be deported or in prison before 2012”.
...maybe we’ll luck out and the cigs will take care of things!
And we must never underestimate the ability of the Republicans to snatch defeat from jaws of victory . . .
So if criticizing Obama’s policies and predicting his defeat now makes one a liberal, I am forced to conclude that there really is just no winning with some FReepers anymore.
The gentleman is deluded.
The path to victory is through the 50% of the population who pay little or no taxes and their enablers in academe and among other groups. Make ‘em dependent on you and promise ‘em more every election.
You don’t actually have to deliver - the MSM will cover that up for you.
With a little help from the 2010 census and ACORN or COI or whatever they are now, the next election should be slam dunk (and the one after that...).
I think he’ll lose because the country will be broke and a fifth of the people unemployed.
Barring a shooting war with N. Korea or Iran, it’ll come down to the economy. If we’re in recovery, he’ll get the credit and most likely be re-elected. If we’re still in a recession, he can kiss his job goodbye.
Getting rid of a sitting President in good economic times is very tough.
I may be wrong but,I don’t think o will make it through his 4 year term.
I’m serious. He wants to hurt the US as badly as he can and as quick as he can. Once the USA is out of the way, NWO is in!
Hitlery might be president before 2012.
Soros is getting pretty old.
Unfortunately, that same 20% will vote for him anyway (ACORN will pad this number with dead people & pets), because all they know is CNN, Oprah, and People Magazine.
You are right I am sure he is burning one after another in his confused state of mind.
“MAY” what is this “may” stuff....Hope u change title to WILL!
Is that pustule still oozing? I thought he died. How does something so bitter remain alive?
Now that over 50% of the sheep are sucking from the government teat, I’m not sure there will be another GOP President in my lifetime. 2012 is a done deal already.
Our only hope is that the over-reaches of the leftists will self-destruct, maybe in time for 2016. If there’s anything left to save by then...
That certainly proved to be FDR's Achilles Heel.
Exactly my thought. He was hired because he claimed he would do a better job than the Republicans, not turn a recession into the second Great Depression.
Reasons -- 1.) unemployment and 2.) inflation.
I don't see any evidence of economic "green shoots" anywhere, except for the weeds in my garden. $789 *billion* in economic stimulus spending that didn't stimulate much of anything, but was a laundry list of unfunded Democrat wishes since 1994.
FDR didn't have the advantage of a different skin color, no opposition party, and the faithful puppy-love of an adoring Media.
I am so illiterate, and you are so bombastic, you will have to elucidate before I can comprehend.
Good economic times seem far-fetched with a Democrat congress and a socialist Kenyan running things, but I suppose the Republicans could retake the Congress, get things back on track, and watch as the Kenyan takes the credit.
It’s not stupid people in America; it’s voter fraud. Can’t wait for a few including Congress critters to sign on to the Bernie Madoff plan of spending 150 years in jail.
Yeah, Obama will lose in a landslide if he’s not disqualified from office first.
If he continues on his path to Marxist hell, millions of unemployed people will be screaming for his head by 2010.
Marshall Law will be declared around the 2012 election to keep Obama in office, either due to a real or manufactured threat to the homeland. Remember, the World ends that December 21, 2012. ... j/k
L'ego of my eggo!
Japan has been in recession/depression for 19 years now, under much the same economic policies as Obama is instituting. It's unlikely that a Republican Congress, all on it's own, can make the kinds of changes than need to be made. In fact, it's unlikely that a Republican President and Republican Congress can make the changes, unless there is someone out there with Reagan-like charisma. Which I don't see. Expect a game of political "musical chairs" every 2-4 year for the next 20 years. Nobody has the fortitude to actually fix the problems. Things will not get back "on track" any time soon.
Once Obama names an election czar, his reelection is all but a certainty.
So what are you saying, he gets to appoint the head of ACORN? ;)
Thus, we can rebrand the democrat party as the Stagflation Party.
My apologies to those who enjoy stag parties.
