Skip to comments.It Begins: Obama Should Quit
Posted on 09/14/2011 1:00:47 PM PDT by shield
This morning, John Fund was on WMAL-AM, the talk radio powerhouse in Washington D.C. He mentioned that nobody in Democratic circles is defending Obama anymore. Buyers remorse is everywhere. Essentially, only those actually working for the Administration or Democratic Party, trapped inside the Alamo, are defending the fort now. Anyone can guess when they might start turning the guns on each other, perhaps starting from Foggy Bottom. Fund thought there is a chance that a committee of senior Democrats might go to Obama in a few months and tell him it might be best not to run for reelection. Who knows. At least the disappointment would be bi-partisan if that happened, with White House loyalists and the GOP both upset Obama wouldnt be on the ballot in November.
Then Andrew Breitbart over at the Bigs has the same observation as Fund:
I predict a tectonic shift among American Jews and within the Democratic Party if Obama doesnt quietly retire. All the spinning in the world cant spin away the trend of Scott Brown, the Tea Party victory of November 2010, and now the Turner earthquake.
Many Democrats are awakening to the reality that their party has been hijacked by a radicalism completely unfamiliar to their parents and grandparents Democratic Party.
An internal, partisan civil war is now brewing in that party. What I think tonight is less important than what Joe Lieberman, Bill Clinton, Evan Bayh, and the rest of the former, and now defunct, reasonable wing of the Democratic Party is thinking tonight.
Granted, its early, and one bad night in Brooklyn does not an LBJ make. But there is no mistaking the sense of failure creeping over this Presidency after so much Hope.
Just a hunch, but I bet the CBC will still support him.
A few minutes ago, I had this thought that we should send tens of millions of emails to the White House urging Obama to resign.
I don’t think there’s a chance he would do it, but if half your emails are saying resign, it’s certainly bug him.
I actually like that...
His numbers have improved somewhat the last few days and I don't know why. Be careful...take nothing for granted and beware of complacency.
They are always planning something.
Whatever unlucky Dem draws the short straw for the assignment of telling Zero that he’s finished better be armored. Union thugs carry big flashlights, I hear.
Go over to sites like DU or MoveOn......they think the problem is the DNC is not radical enough!
“Granted, its early, and one bad night in Brooklyn does not an LBJ make”.
...it is early but last night was the final nail. Now, everytime there’s an election, it’s a “tectonic shift”. The biggie being 14 months from now!!
LOL...that’s the visage that popped into my mind as I read this. Thanks for saving me the trouble of posting the pic!
It was just hype. “O” too shameful advantage of a lot of people who actually put their confidence in him.
He NEVER had the experience or the character to step into the WH with a plan and a vision.
He just babbled the same old overused and emotional nonsense every Communist college professor can recite backward and forward in his sleep. It has all been an ‘excellent adventure’ for “O”, but the people who counted on him have been betrayed...again.
I would have thought the Brown win would have caused the dems to start thinking this way. Then we had the Republican governors elected soon after 2010...so it has taken the district NY9 to cause this kind of stir. IF the dems would have taken a hint much earlier, they’d wouldn’t have had the NY9 loss.
Obama will be re-elected. You can take that to the bank.
And here’s the next step. The Democrats nominate someone who is considered a “centrist,” someone with background and experience, someone like... Hillary Clinton. That person steamrolls the Republicans, promising centrist reforms and tweaking Obamanomics and Obamacare, and when they get to office, they start cementing their power. Obama gets to go on a speaking tour and write (ghostwritten) books.
God help us.
The Democrats are a pile of wood.
Wouldn't opposing Zero's reelection be racist?
The leftist freaks I know are ultra-busy blaming Republicans’ greed and selfishness, so they’re still eating up every lie their messiah tells them.
Maxine may be “tired” but she’s still going to vote for Hussein.
The prob...is we will get biden, who is worse.
IMO, We The People should be demanding a special prosecutor, investigations, trials, and jail time for all the corrupt participants in this Administration. When will the calls for Impeachment begin?
We The People deserve an accounting of every dollar of the trillions that have been squandeed are? Whose pockets were lined?
Obama will be re-elected. You can take that to the bank.
(God I hope I’m wrong...)
“O” was in a free fall all his life and just got lucky landing on his feet in the WH.
He won’t leave now, because he has no where to go.
Watch for the dems to quietly attach themselves to the Gunrunner probe to nudge The One out. I'd say the same about Solyndra but that also gores the sacred cow of eco-fascism, thus, Gunrunner would be the "black cloud" of choice. Special prosecutor by March '12 I think.
“Who’s yo mamma?”
Baraq has far too much hubris to quit.
And Dems don’t dare touch risk the race card being played if they depose him.
No, I believe Toxic Baraq Syndrome will be at epidemic levels until Nov 2012.
That just underscores the divisions within the party; divisions inherent in its makeup of small but vocal minority groups. And when the One people thought was going to bring them together actually divides them instead, the blame game will become nasty, and the One won't be alone in being blamed. I think the term 'civil war' may be fairly appropriate.
“Come to mama.” Even in those days something was
eating at her. There’s not much left of her now.
Not gonna help the Dems.
Obama has poisoned the well.
They aren’t counting on Obama to win. They are counting on the Republican to lose. When the candidate is decided, the media will go on a full out blitz to destroy him.
Those racist SOBs.
And given the penchant for liberal violence, I would not be surprised to see a leftist take a shot at Obama......of course, that would turn him into an instant martyr and pave the way for Biden 2012.
Yeah, if you want an IRS audit, being placed on the “no fly” list by the TSA, having the DEA “mistakenly” raid your home, having building inspectors crawling around, union thugs smashing your windows and a thousand other things. These people are playing hardball.
1) A circular firing squad.
2) An oval firing squad.
At this point in time, I would prefer that Obama quietly and lamely serve out his term and simply announce he will run for re-election.
The following four words comprise my argument for this approach: Presidential incumbent Joseph Biden.
[Of course, I think the REAL probability of Obama NOT running for re-election in 20112 are about the same as the probablity that our sun will burn out in 2012]
and if the Pubbies can’t beat Biden, they are definitely finished.
You are wrong. Behind the scenes you even have powerful dems working with Republicans to rid this country of him.
even killing OBL only gave him a 3 month bump... this to shall pass.
*** He mentioned that nobody in Democratic circles is defending Obama anymore. Buyers remorse is everywhere.***
The idiots of America are finally waking up to the fact that when you elect an incompetent, you still have to put up with him for three years and ten months!
Now it’s going to be our turn to celebrate “Hope and Change”.
He ain't got a f_rts chance in a windstorm.
Fill in the blank.
This is my belief, too. Yeah, it's early, and yeah, a lot can still happen, but I don't see how Obama loses given the current crop of GOP hopefuls.
“And heres the next step. The Democrats nominate someone who is considered a centrist, someone with background and experience, someone like... Hillary Clinton”
yeah that’s going to play well with the blacks and Daily Show kiddies
...simply announce that he will not run for reelection.
They already have attached themselves quietly to the gunrunner probe.
I know. I go over there every day for a good laugh.
No he won’t but Hillary sure will. Many feel she got ripped in 2008, including the strongest voting block, women. I said this from the beginning Obama will leave Office for some reason and Hilliary will become a modern day Lady Godiva, hopefully clothed.
So it turn out that in 2012, Barak IS THE ONE we’ve been waiting for.
On October 4, West Virginia has a special election for governor. West Virginia has been dominated by the Dems since the 1930s. On the other hand, WV is 93% white, and their main industry is coal mining, which O has been trying hard to kill. A Repub win would be a lot bigger deal there than NY9 was.
There’s a little glass box on the wall of the DNC headquarters that reads “in case of emergency, break glass”. In side is Zero’s fake BC.
This virulent radical leftism has been brewing in academia for 40 years, but since 9/11, or perhaps since early 2003, it's gone mainstream.There's no way Obama walks it back.
