I Told You So (Lynn Forester de Rothschild on Obama)
Daily Beast ^ | 03/01/10 | Lynn Forester de Rothschild

Posted on 03/01/2010 4:11:40 PM PST by OldDeckHand

Obama’s shortcomings were eminently foreseeable, says one of McCain's most prominent Democratic backers. Lynn Forester de Rothschild on how the president's fake bipartisanship could never hide his true leftist agenda.

The failures of the Obama presidency were clearly telegraphed by the Obama candidacy. I hate to say it, but I told you so.

Back in September 2008, as a lifelong Democratic Party loyalist and activist, I backed John McCain; I told The New York Times, “I love my country more than my party.” Supporting a Republican was the last thing I expected to be doing in the fall of 2008. But I knew it was my only choice, given the decision by the Democratic Party establishment to reject 18 million voters in favor of the inexperienced and ideological Barack Obama

I remember her endorsing McCain.

In fairness, everyone here so it coming, too. Indeed, anyone who looked honestly at Barry's record, sparse as it was, and his associates, both people and organizations, knew exactly who he is and that he was lying about it.

Interesting comments at the source (mostly ripping on her...by rabid progressives). You didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to get a correct read on Barry. One only needed to look at his resume.

Here is a great piece of video from her being interviewed by Wolf Blitzer during the campaign.

Obama has been a wake-up call for this country. Please read below.

Barack Obama has done more for America in his first year than most past presidents.

That is right, I will say it. Thank GOD for Barack Obama!

WHY?

He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine…

– Driving a stake thru the heart of Hillary’s Presidential aspirations. Something no Republican was ever able to do.

Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out of you!

– He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty. No more Kennedys trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.

American women and Freedom are safer tonight!

– He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!

· Dennis Moore had never lost a race – quit

· Evan Bayh had never lost a race – quit

· Byron Dorgan – had never lost a race – quit

· Harry Reed - GONE

These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has destroyed! By the end of 2010 dozens more will be!

In December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In the last two election cycles they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party.

In one year Obama put a stop to all of this and will probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans.

He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Every Generation seems to need to relearn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. He is bringing home the lesson very well!

* Liberals tax, borrow and spend – check
* Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America – check
* Liberals want to take over the economy – check
* Liberals think they know what is best for everyone – check
* Liberals aren’t happy till they are running YOUR life - check

He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan.

In one year, he rejuvenated the Conservative movement and brought out to the streets millions of Freedom Loving Americans.

Name me one other time in your life that you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America .

In all honesty one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever been in my life. Not of the economy but of the direction our country was going. I thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all about. My neighbors, friends, strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong.

When the American People wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them!

Barack Obama woke up these Great Americans!

Again I want say, Thank you Barack Obama!

She says...

"This is so sad when the Democrats play the class card and try to divide the country".

This has been the Dem MO for the better part of 80 years. Still, I remember when this woman came out against Obama, she was excoriated by the media. I remember a particularly heated exchange between her and Campbell Brown. The media wasn't happy she spoke truth to power, especially about their savior. Some 15 months later, she has the last laugh, to the extent that anyone is laughing with 10% unemployment.

I remember the last time the long ruling Crats lost the majorities. Lots of arguments, fussing and fightin’ and displays of sheer appoplexy.(sp?)

There is nothing I would like to see more than scary Harry and fancy Nancy being shipped off to the trailer park from their ornate leader offices. Oh, and I guess she would have to take a Southwest flight back home to S.F.????

Seeing them shipped off to prison would be poetic justice.
