Been taking a break from FReeping for a while, but came across this while surfing for pickup truck info and just had to post it.

This is the best they got? Wow! Homos in the military and he's cute?

However, the author did neglect to mention legions of dead voters.

Once this nomination war finishes, the GOP will rally to defeat Obama.

The American People want him gone.

“The Iraq war is over”? ROTFL! Somebody needs to tell that to al Quaeda and the Iraqis. Lauren must be smoking something.

2. The economy is recovering

Just because someone says it is so, doesn't make it true. Even the Rats own pollster Stan Greenberg says for Obummer to get off the economy in campaigning because no one believes it is better.

They may want Obama gone but the choices on the Republican side are terrible.
It is possible you will have a lot of Conservatives either staying home in November or voting 3rd party.

Obunghole is an unmitigated disaster. Everything he has come into contact with has be come so hopelessly corrupt and an outright failure. It amazes me that the public has not stormed the White House and taken Barry, the Wookie and the Wookie’s mother out in stocks.

I really hope that you're wrong. Another four years of Obama, and a couple of more supremes appointments, and we're cooked.

The economy is recovering. Yeah.......riiiiiiight!

The article contains a link to 10 reasons why Obama won’t get re-elected. Those make more sense.

Unfortunately, there are enough true believers who will believe the 10 reasons to re-elect him.

I don't believe this for a minute. As even the candidates themselves have stated in the debates, in so many words, "Any one of us standing on this stage is 1000 times better than Obama". No sane conservative will vote 3rd party, or not vote at all, not when they think about 4 more years of Obozo and the 2 or 3 Supreme Court Justices he would get to appoint.

1) I’m on drugs.

2) I’m crazy.

3) I’m stupid.

4) I’m a millionaire friend of Obama.

5) Dictatorships don’t have elections.

6) The IRS will find you if you don’t vote Obama.

7) Obama loves babies (the aborted ones anyway).

etc.

Five reasons, in no particular order, that the MSM will cite to support their claim that Obama should be re-elected:

And in other news, we are at war with Eastasia; we have always been at war with Eastasia.

1. Because of government cheese and buying votes

2. Because of demographics: more blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Euro’s that still hold on to their European culture vs becoming Americanized as was the case in the past.

3. Because Hollywood and the news media (85% of them realistically there actually have been studies and surveys on this) are Democrats.

4. Because he's youthful and “handsome” looking, willing to play into the pop culture trash that dominates our media, by showing up on every channel and show to include comedy shows, the food network, kids shows etc. He will win because this sort of junk is what is appealing to the American electorate today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsWpvkLCvu4

5. He has few principals or morals. He will do whatever it takes to cling to power and there are no rules or lines that don't get crossed in that game. Lying (going back on his campaign finance promise), throwing troops under the bus to buy votes with ever more extensions of government entitlements, slandering the families of opponents with third party groups that he can distance himself from but who do take direction from his campaign... Anything goes.

Probability he will get reelected? Very high. But not for any of the reasons listed in that article.

*****

Definitely possibilities. I myself don’t know what I’m going to do. For some of us, anyone but Obama will not be an improvement. And if there are enough conservatives who feel the same, you can be sure Obama will be re-elected. His first order of business will be to declare himself president for life. And then you can kiss whatever is left of America and its freedoms goodbye.

The Detrit bailout Worked? By breaking contract law and giving money to the Unions and not paying the bondholders? The GM stock price has a LONG way to go before the taxpayers are paid back. GM managed to give their workers bonuses though.

But the number ONE possibly for Zeros re-election “IS”...

NO Newt... NO exact opposite option.. NO choice.. NO champion..

Willard is the new Juan McLaim, or worse Lynsey Graham..
Santo is the new Bob Dole.. or worse Arlen Spectre..
They are BOTH OWNED by the Unions..

NO Newt...... prepare for Zerodamus TWO...

1. The Iraq war is over (because Bush ended it by winning)
2. The economy is recovering (Where?)
3. The GM bailout worked (You can keep anyone in business with 65 billion dollars. Not a big feat)
4. Don’t ask don’t tell is over. (thats a win? The only ones that wanted it would never be in the military.)
5. Health care reform is here (Most Americans see it as the quagmire it is)

1. Obama cut and ran from Iraq guaranteeing it will go the way of Vietnam.

2. The economy is still in the tank, but the lamestream media will do everything it can to convince the sheeple that the economy is recovering.

3. The Detroit bailout worked to buy Obama some union votes.

4. "Don't ask, don't tell" is over and homosexual sodomy is the new normal.

The author seems to have omitted our involvement in Afghanistan, which in my opinion, is 10x worse than Iraq.

There is no solution to Afghanistan, short of splitting the country into a Shia north and a Sunni south, or building a fence around the entire country letting them kill each other off.

In March 2011 I posted my prediction that Obama would be easily reelected.

Six Reasons.....

(1) The economy would stabilize and slowly grow until November 2012.

(2) The MSM would highlight every positive economic story and ignore or camouflage every negative economic story.

(3) White males are the only major population group in America that consistently vote for Conservatives.

(4) A small majority of American voters support the European Socialist political model, and their voter participation rate is increasing.

(5) Conservatives have had NO national leadership since Newt Gingrich imploded in 1998.

(6) After 45 years of relentless attacks by the Hard Left MSM, the Republican Party still has no national strategy to counter that.

Good points. I would look to the results of the 2010 mid-terms as the argument against Obama’s re-election. My concern is sustaining the Tea Party momentum, especially since we’ve been demonized and denigrated by the MSM propaganda ministry.

Rubbish. Gingrich is an excellent candidate -- in fact, probably the best in decades -- and if we are lucky enough to have him win the nomination, he has the makings of a superb president.

No way he won't cream Obama in the general.

My main concern is demography.

The voter groups with the largest population growth are decisively Democrats - namely, native born Hispanics and new immigrant citizens from all countries.

And, the voter participation rate for other Democrat groups has steadily increased for 10 years - namely, Blacks and low income voters.

Republicans - and specifically Conservatives - currently have the highest voter participation rates.

But it is only a question of time before the raw numbers turn against us.

When that happens, the Democratic Party will take permanent control of the White House and Congress.

You've just outlined the Dem/Marxist strategy. It is discouraging. My personal plan is to become more active at the local level, as I don't have the cash necessary to buy influence at the federal level.

If we can keep the Marxists off the school board and the city council, they will never have the stepping-stone necessary to rise to higher levels in the political structure.

“Good points. I would look to the results of the 2010 mid-terms as the argument against Obama’s re-election. My concern is sustaining the Tea Party momentum, especially since we’ve been demonized and denigrated by the MSM propaganda ministry.”

Actually, I see that issue as part of a much bigger GOP problem. IMHO the establishment GOP hates the Teapartiers worse than the MSM and the DNC. They won’t support or tolerate them, as can be seen where they sabotaged 2010 tea party candidates and sacrificed seats to ensure that the TP did not reach critical mass. It was important enough to them that it cost the GOP the senate. How does that make you feel?

I don’t think that the TP can vindicate the GOP. The GOP will fight to ensure that they can maintain their status quo and continue to force candidates like McCain, Romney, Specter, etc on us.

I like your strategy.

I didn't mean to sound completely pessimistic.

The Internet is a stunning political tool.

Although Republicans tend to be slow adopters and a little techno clumsy, our independent bloggers and the rank and file have turned back many of the MSM’s most serious attacks.

The recent uproar over Rush's comments come to mind.

I thought Conservatives were dead the first day that came out.

Now, it looks like a 50-50 tie.

Rome wasn't built in a day. Again, my concern is sustaining Tea Party momentum, and outrage against the status quo is perhaps the best tool available to succeed.

At this juncture, I'll take a McCain over an Obama, and continue to build support for citizen's candidates for the future.

I refuse acknowledge the situation to be hopeless.

What's your solution, short of armed resistance?
