Scarborough: Dems Say Privately Obama Is Invisible, Not A Leader
RCP ^ | July 29, 2011 | RCP Video

Posted on 07/31/2011 6:08:12 AM PDT by MontaniSemperLiberi

Mika heard two days ago on Capitol Hill Democrats all saying the same thing. And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader. They said this all behind closed doors. Democratic leaders, Democratic rank-and-file.

Will there be riots when he is unseated either in a Dem primary challenge or in November, 2012?

I predict a series of shocking meltdowns, recorded for all to see.

interesting...I think we have already seen some minor melt-downs in his angry, petulant addresses over the past month. It is the job of handlers to hide any major melt-downs...I would love to see them fail, and Obama expose himeself as a spoiled brat in over his head.

“I still maintain that, if the economy remains this bad by early next year, Obama will be forced to not seek a 2nd term — by the Dems.”

I have been saying this for a while, except my view is that the Dems will have to pull the trigger during 4Q2011

If Obama slobberers like Joe and Mika are reporting this, the dude is in real trouble. Now...the question is...who can step up to beat him? I think Perry could be that guy.

Hell, since his name has come up, I think Foghorn Leghorn could do a better job.

What’s baffling to me is how anyone could have believed that electing someone with ZERO executive experience to take on the most challenging CEO position on the planet could possibly have been a good idea. Using the Oval Office for OJT is a singularly bone-headed notion and now we’re all paying the price since Barry apparently isn’t a particularly quick study.

Obama was elected by the Mediacracy. They don't worry about reality. Life is nothing but image for them. As Progressives, they gloried in the idea of the first Affirmative Action President. They like the idea the county being taken down a notch.

Obama is not now and never has been a leader.

He is ONLY the salesman, the public face, the mouthpiece for a collective, and he is invisible to most Democrats because he cannot intelligently discuss with them those things which he only has instructions on what to say.

Abandoned by much of his idiot constituency.

Abandoned by many of his toadies eager to wipe the spittle from his chin.

Abandoned by many in his own party what were eager to do his bidding.

Abandoned by his very own ma and pa.

This might be too obvious to point out, but it must really suck being Barak Hussein Obama.

There is an AP story out on Fast & Furious that reads like it was written by the Whitehouse. ‘Yeah mistakes were made, but the operation had such lofty goals. ‘

Imagine if we found out that Canada was essentially arming US inner city gangs? If Dems want him gone, this operation would be the way.

My fear is that they will take the "kill two birds with one stone" option - the unspeakable one - where Obama is eliminated in such a way as to put the blame on the "extremist far right" tea partiers. This will ensure that they stay in power, while giving them an opportunity to grab even more power. The time is ripe now, after the Norwegian massacre.

This scenario scares me to death.

McCain was not conservative enough? Mc Cain is a brain-damaged POW who should never get even close to the Oval Office. But in a strange way he actually got the country off it’s ass by loosing to FUBO. FUBO just wanted the trappings of the office, but not the hard work. All of the trips, the golf, the vacations. He’s no different than the Black Councilman in DC who set up a program to help kids, got the city to pony up $300k, then proceeded to spend the money on himself. Unfortunately while the guy in DC has to pay the money back, we are not going to be able to dun FUBO for all of our hard-earned tax dollars he and that harridan of a wife have spent. Just hope we don’t have to buy two new 747’s after he is thrown out of office.

I doubt Ubama had the brains to figure out how and why he even became president.

Did anyone even listen to what he was saying during his campaign?

Sure, lots of people did. It was all about the meaningless and vapid "hope and change" slogan that people could imagine to mean whatever they wanted it to mean. (shrug) It worked. Like many people have noted, America can survive Ubama, but America cannot survive the kind of people who voted for Ubama.

The Republicans are in a strong position, if they don’t choose to throw it away (as usual). If the House Repubs hold the line on the debt ceiling and force Dems to make cuts THIS YEAR on programs, it will set the various Dem constituencies fighting among each other over who deserves full funding, which would damage them into 2012.

You both stated above:
MSL:
“With the debt negotiations, the Republicans screwed the country”

MT:
“It seems much more possible that they have saved the country. Better the debt ceiling not be raised than the insane spending bills that have been put forward.”

I’m inclined to think that the 2010 class did all that they could do...all they could ever really do was mitigate the train wreck. IMHO the the odds were that they would not be able to fix it by themselves.

There are certainly forces at work in our government and behind the scenes who are the hidden enemy within who have their hands on the levers of power.

IMHO through their blatant behavior that enemy is becoming more transparent and exposed to the American people. Some of that is because they think perhaps that they are far enough along in their plans that they cannot be stopped. But I believe they are wrong. I think they are overconfident and overreaching.

By God’s grace, we can hang on to the forms and structures and the remaining tatters of our Constitution long enough to take the measures required to realign our government, our commerce, and societal institutions so that once more we may practice our Constitution as set forth by the Founders.

It will take all that we can give to the holy cause of Freedom as each of us is commanded by the Lord in order for the Victory to be won...but it was ever thus.

I am on the exact opposite side of the room. I believe, sincerely, that this was intentional. They have known for years where the upper limits were and they continued to shove and push to reach them knowing that the result would be an worldwide economic upheaval. This is what they need to get Agenda 21 completely out of the box and into high gear.

If the economy is this bad by early next year (it won’t be, it will be worse) NO DEMOCRAT will be able to win. They would be smarter to let him go down in crushing defeat, apologize for his existence and then gear up for the next election.

Not surprising, is it? Reid and Schumer and other senators urged Obama to run, sort of recruited him to keep Hillary out.

The book Game Change, which reported that, got more attention for Reid's comment that could become the country's first black president because he was "light-skinned" and had "no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

It also quoted Reid telling Obama, "You’re not going to go anyplace here ... I know that you don’t like it, doing what you’re doing."

Put it together and Reid comes across as very much the senior partner in the relationship, not inclined to take orders from Obama, and supporting Obama in part because of Obama's weaknesses and unassertiveness.

Man, you’ve got that right.
No energy, no spark.
Manners have to be taught EARLY on.
How to respond to adults, etc., not just which fork to use when.

Take a hint from the royals, think what you will, but even the young ones are taught how to behave in public - how to mingle ‘with the people.’ How to engage - to be interested.

My young grandkids know how to speak to adults - it’s not automatic, altho some of them have more spark, zip, perkines, and ‘out-goingness’ than the others.
Most are homeschooled, by the way - - -

The Dems can get rid of Obama very easily. Just force him to resign. Yes, and....they can and should impeach him. But......there is yet another way to destroy Obama instantly and for good!!! Just have four Democrat Senators switch parties and the Republicans will then control both the senate and the house. Who, Lieberman, Manchin, the gent from Nebraska, Mary Landrieu and....maybe one or two others. They are out there. they just have to be convinced that change is in their best interests and the country best interests as well!!! Obama is toast and should be fired immediately, along with Joe Biden. then John Boehner would become the POTUS!!!
