Presidency on the verge of nervous breakdown: 5 reasons why Obama’s future looks increasingly bleak
The London Telegraph ^ | October 10, 2010 (10/10/10) | Nile Gardiner

Posted on 10/09/2010 11:23:57 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Forget the myth of an Obama recovery. The past week has been disastrous for the White House and America’s increasingly disillusioned Left. No wonder the angry and desperate Vice President Joe Biden is talking about “playing hell” if his party suffers defeat in November.

Here are five reasons why the Obama presidency’s outlook is getting significantly worse, not better:

1. A new Gallup poll suggests the November mid-terms could result in the biggest victory for Republicans in the House since 1894

Gallup’s latest poll is absolutely devastating in its analysis of the Democrats’ prospects for November 2, projecting a 13 point lead for the Republicans based on higher overall turnout, and a staggering 18 point lead if turnout is low. In Gallup’s view:

If there is a widely disproportionate skew in turnout toward Republican voters and their national vote lead ends up being in the double digits, the Republican gains would be very substantial.

As leading election analyst Michael Barone noted, the Gallup numbers “suggest it looks like 1894, when Republicans gained more than 100 seats in a House of approximately 350 seats.” If the Gallup poll proves accurate, we could be looking at a GOP victory in the House of Representatives of absolutely historic proportions, a scenario frightening enough to give even the most seasoned Obama White House adviser nightmares.

2. The Senate now hangs in the balance

Rasmussen’s latest projection has both the Democrats and Republicans with 48 seats in the Senate, with Florida moving into the solid GOP camp, and West Virginia moving from toss up to leans GOP. Four states (all Democrat) are now in the toss-up category: California, Illinois, Nevada and Washington...

Presidency on the verge of nervous breakdown

Let him crack up. Give him a medical discharge! But, one way or another, it's time to end the experiment brought on by the piss-steam media and the Bush derangement crowd.

and a staggering 18 point lead if turnout is low

I suspect turnout will be low for a reason I haven't seen written about yet (I'm sure I just missed it)--because people THINK they want to live in a socialist paradise as long as it's JUST a Utopian fantasy.

When the reality hit, they realized it was so much easier to be able to bitch and whine when what you're bitching and whining about ISN'T the reality you have to live in.

For all their complaints about "Tea Baggers" and "Bush lied," they really don't care for the actual living reality of a socialist-turning nation. So these voters--not ALL libs, jsut this bloc I'm talking about--will not vote this time around. Then when the Republicans are back in control they can return to their comfortable norm--bitching and whining about evil capitalists controlling the world and keeping us all from living in a socialist Utopia.

When the history of this pathetic left wing admin and congress is written I predict that the pinnacle of their power, the moment of utmost Leftist glee will be Nancy Pelosi carrying that huge gavel through the Tea Party crowd cackling all the way knowing that they went against the will of the people but it didn’t matter because they had the power and they used the power to rule with an iron fist, and they absolutely loved every minute. The Devil came through with his promise and delivered for Nancy and gang.

Only thing is, now he wants their souls in return and now they are starting to realize the bad deal they made......the wailing and gnashing of teeth has already begun and will rise to a blood curdling caucophony on November 3.

I guess Barry’s charm offensive strategy of popping up in the backyards of complacent zombie-like white suburbanites to give them a ponderous talking points briefing is not working. I’ve seen at least three of these Barry infomercials in the past month.

Let’s hope Barry starts going insane on TV in time to more heavily influence conservative turn-out and Democrat disillusion on the West Coast when the polls close in the Eastern time zone and exit polls show the Democrats to have been thoroughly shellacked. I predict that the one thing he is almost certain to do the next day is to go golfing and then take an extended vacation at Camp David for more golf.

There was nowhere to go in the article with “nervous breakdown” in the title, because it was just a figure of speech and was referring to the Obama Presidency and not to Obama himself having a nervous breakdown.

Me too. I sure hope the GOP has an effective ACTION plan for poll watching, and they will FIGHT HARD.

Thinking of Algore 200, and Franken, we KNOW the dems will fight.

I doubt cheating will determine the majority in either house (it could in the Senate), the GOP should take the firmest stand and fight this time around.

He takes a crap all over this country, then all over his own party, and the day after his first flight of chickens come home to roost, he leaves the country and runs all the way across the globe to hide. But the tar and feathers will easily await his return.

Never think that this man or his Presidency is on the ropes. While his favorability, accomplishements, and economic results are plunging daily, his goals and plans that will attain them are not.

Losing Congress doesn't matter to him or those surrounding him. And, every hairbrained sociomaniacal legislative effort will be rushed through in the lame duck session. Following that his continual stream of Executive edicts will further suppress us while robbing this country of its wealth to redistribute to plain losers are allowed to vote. Executive Actions will be the rule of the day November 3.

In the case of Hitler, when things eventually went badly for him, clearer thinking people around him at least thought about how to save things for the cause (e.g., bomb plots). Yet, although a maniac too, Hitler had the sense to check out, permanently.

It won't be so with him or his crowd, which also includes the MSM. These people will scheme and fight to the bitter end. I will give them that. They are evil, but tenaciously evil to a fault.

I agree 100%. He and registered Democrats are hell bent on destroying this country. Even with the expected win it will take years to recover from this pres and current congress.

Hopefully the Republicans will get the message and stay on course but we all know what the leadership is like.
Keep up the pressure folks..starting Nov 3!

Chairman MaObama’s outright lies, direct violation of the Constitution with Health Care, appointing Czars and circumventing the Legislation, Unconstitutional Executive abuse of power, and several Etc’s,,,, are more than enough grounds for impeachment. Just the outright lies and deception and refusal to give out his personal records are more than enough to fire this idiot immediately.

If the Publik turns it's rage and blame on the media as it should, then even they will throw their hero under the bus to save their own pathetic asses. All this requires, is enough extremely angry people to force the issues to the front.

The Supreme Court should also have their reign of power stripped and this should become a daily talking point. One which even they, cannot avoid or deny.

It will be interesting to see what develops. It all depends on how much zeal we can muster after the elections.

“I just hope we’re not counting chickens before they’re hatched with all this speculation.”

1. We KNOW the RATs are going to cheat. The whole election may be subverted enough to render it meaningless.
2. If the last two years haven’t been enough, the lame duck session will destroy us, as a nation.
3. We MUST keep the pressure on the new Congress to pass a balanced budget, with lower taxes and massive defunding.
4. Watch for October surprises - amnesty, by executive order; terrorism alerts; nationalizing banks; gold ownership outlawed; etc.
