Skip to comments.2012 Vote: Basest Human Instincts Vs Best Human Instincts
Posted on 04/20/2011 4:54:31 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Barack Obama has put his 2012 presidential campaign into high gear calling on his dependants, his base, to come to his aid (and theirs). He appeals to humanities basest instincts because he cannot take his agenda forward with honesty or integrity appeals to humanities best instincts will not advance his cause. He is a small man with his nose in the air and lies on his lip and cynicism in his heart, and he plans to win in 2012 and finish the transformation of America into a socialist state.
Its as simple as that.
We do not want to bring a knife to this gunfight. We do not want a plutocracy. We do not want presidential peerage. We do not want royalty. We do not want our leaders tapped by our betters or promoted by rights of succession.
We are done with that.
Standing beside Obama in his battle for America are public sector employees (teacher unions hold a special distinction in this group), university fiefdoms of liberal indoctrination and their impressionable useful idiot students, mass media outlets, popular culture makers and distributors, lawyers, activist judges, elites, environmentalists and the millions of emotionally stunted and economically crippled Americans that have lived under local Democrat control for generations. Toss into this mix millions of illegal immigrants and the U.S. children born to them, and you have a lot of money and muscle to back up Obamas bid for a second 4-year term as Americas chief executive. They are ready to rumble.
Our numbers are larger. Our pockets are deeper. Our instincts are more powerful and we have a cause we are willing to fight for. Our first order of business: Who is best to lead our conservative charge?
I dont see a lot of arguing on the Democratic Party end of the street. Obamas minions are pleased with him and his determined agenda to stay focused on their needs and grievances, their grasping dependency and his willingness to blame the other guy for their (fill in the blank). He in turn depends on their lazy intellectual curiosity about whether their endless social justice demands will destroy even them in the end. Obama holds them to no accountability. He carries their victimization status like arrows in his arsenal of demanding self-interest groups. They are the people the Left has groomed, the faceless street mob that they depend on but in fact, despise.
If we don't want to be the cause of our own defeat at the polls, we must immediately focus our opposition energies on Obama and his political handmaidens, and not each other. Supporters of liberalism easily coalesce into a voting borg. It saves needed campaign money and get-out-the-vote muscle. Because their leadership knows their numbers are not naturally overwhelming, they work aggressively to take out any effective conservative leaders as they emerge.
We need a candidate who is quick and grounded in conservative principles -- someone happy to shout it from the rooftops. We need a candidate that calls on us to be better and stronger, not weak victims with no recourse but dependency. We need this candidate because they will rally the country and bring out the money and muscle to fight a 2nd Obama term.
The Left has already identified the conservative candidate that can beat Obama.
I like Michelle Bachman but shes missing the Sarah Palin thing. That thing that the Left instinctively sees will destroy their White House bid. They also see her coattails. Palin is the one to fire up the vote and take the White House for conservatives. She appeals to the best in us. She has the courage of her convictions. She tells the truth without being "mean-spirited." She has the ability to bring the country together behind her platform and we need to support her bid.
but can she win over the graveyard vote?
Beware the polls and that includes Rassmussen.
Rather than asking people if they want to see Medicare and Medicaid REFORMED they ask if they want to see these programs changed or ended.
Ryan plans to reform all entitlements while O lies and says republicans want to end these programs.
That the entitlements will be broke sooner rather than later is someting the left would prefer to ignore for political reasons.
This is not a president that wants to work hard to do the right thing, he wants to continue on his lazy undisciplined ways partying on down while our country sinks into bankruptcy.
A lot of people are working in many states cleaning up the voter rolls.
Look at the Wisconsin vote. The right DOES outnumber the Left.
I think a lot of voters saw how important turnout is.
If it is close the Left can “find” the numbers to put their candidate over the top. Even if it takes getting it into the courts so it can be massaged.
The base must be on fire!
And all his media zombie followers and his supporters will parrot his lies.
Palin will take it to them and call them on their lies.
In our own daily conversations we must use the word REFORM.
Doubt there is anyone who believes these programs are run without massive fraud and abuse.
"ABC News' Amy Walter reports: A new ABC News/Wash. Post poll finds that in a head to head match-up against President Barack Obama, 70% of those who say they are Tea Party supporters say they'll vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for president--compared to 69% for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Seeming Tea Party favorites like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, meanwhile, draw 61% and 60%, respectively, against the president. In which direction do you see the Tea Party pushing the 2012 presidential election?"
I would like to see Bachmann or Palin call out Obama on “wealthy folks like himself not paying enough taxes.” And do it in the way Reagan did with Gorbachev over the Berlin Wall. Something like:
“Mr. President. If you think you haven’t paid your fair share of taxes, then voluntarily, send a check to the treasury, for the additional amount you think would be your fair share. Set an example, and voluntarily pay what you think is your additional fair share.”
OBAMA, ISLAM, AND THE HARD LEFT
I have always liked Palin. When I finally was able to listen to the speech that she gave last weekend I was more than impressed. Its so easy to be influenced by all the negativity from others about her, but if you actually listen to what she says you find that she is voicing what you think - she is saying the things you wish you could shout at congress and the administration. And she is doing it in plain language. Listen to the hint of laughter in her voice as she deals with those hecklers. She answered with humor, good sense, passion, but no malice. I believe that she can become a very powerful voice for the American people.
Power and Control!
Not “hope” and “change.”
You put it exactly the way I see it.
Reagan had that “thing” too. He could cut through the liberal lies and make people understand the truth — and no matter how much the Left vilified and ridiculed him, the people loved him.
I believe Bachman can say the words but I believe Palin can make the people listen and understand.
Everyone has to get involved this time around, or there will be no next time around.
Obama will crown himself Grand Leader for Life.
I am also inclined to think it is that Reagan aura or Reagan Mantle that is obvious to those on the left and that is why they are so frightened of her and why they act accordingly.
