Skip to comments.If Obama wins, what would he do in a second term?
Posted on 05/04/2012 8:09:31 PM PDT by Innovative
"In a second term," Mitt Romney darkly warned in a speech to the National Rifle Association last month, President Obama "would be unrestrained by the demands of reelection."
...His only specific prediction was that Obama would "remake" the Supreme Court.
At the end of 2012, we'll face what Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke calls "the fiscal cliff": The Bush tax cuts are set to expire, the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts initiated when the deficit "supercommittee" failed to reach a deal are set to begin, we're expected to hit the debt ceiling again, and many other programs and tax credits will come up for renewal.
Around the Hill, they refer to this as "taxmageddon."
Beyond the deficit, Obama's advisers see two big unfinished pieces of business from the first term: climate change and immigration reform.

Supreme Court, taxes, immigration, climate change ... are all on Obama's agenda.
The damage Obama can and WILL do if he gets a second term cannot be undone with another election.
Contemplate this and vote accordingly.
[shrug] I’m not voting for Romney. Not even considering it. Have a nice day.
Better question: What wouldn’t he do? This place will not resemble the United States of the 20th Century or before, I assure you.
If Obama wins he is will kill the fracing of oil and gas wells.
You must vote for a GOP house and senate. Without them..well we will see the end of the Republic as we know it.
Change our flag to a mostly red one?
It's going to be very, very hard for me to vote for Scott Brown. I've been voting straight GOP ticket since 1978. This year? I really don't know if I'll vote. Maybe I'll just buy ammo that day.
Everybody on FR knows how bad Obama is and we’d love to see him out of the White House.
The issue here is that most people on FR ALSO KNOW how bad Mitt Romney is and we’d love to make sure he STAYS out of the
If you’re a conservative, vote conservative. If you aren’t then vote for the liberal republican or the liberal democrat.
It’s your vote afterall...
“Change our flag to a mostly red one?”
America will be renamed.. USSA
Buy a lot, you’ll need it.
ObaMao will annex the Suedetenland.
Have a nice day.
Make sure to wear your armband.
Whatever happens, conservatives loose.
Screw 0 AND the GOPee/
I fully understand.
I live in the People’s Republic of Maryland. Land of Peasant Living.
Yes, it all sounds good, but IN REALITY, either Obama or Romney will be president for the next 4 years.
Remember the close election between Bush and Gore.
It may be similar between Obama and Romney.
I am sure you’ll be proud to know that your vote really counted and helped Obama get a second term.
Elections are always about the “lesser of two evils”.
This guy has been too friendly to the likes of Chavez, putin, Zelaya (Honduras), with history back to Odinga, to expect that a zer0 second term there wouldn’t be a serious hidden drive to make sure he had no successor during his lifetime. I may need tin foil, maybe not... but consider that if one were to be satisfied to rule over a severely turd-worlded handicapped former US as a dictator, this guy has the mindset to seek that situation. With “successes” of one crisis after another which he found he could take advantage of and advance power, this kind of thing would be the ultimate prize. Even a severely hampered US there would be enough cream to skim for him to maintain his imperial privileges. Works fine for example even in North Korea, for the very few to live in luxury.
“[shrug] Im not voting for Romney. Not even considering it. Have a nice day.”
That is pretty much the “spoiled brat” attitude.
As much as I dislike Romney, to say that I just as soon see the country become the USSA under Obama, would be treason.
The goal now is to get Obama sent packing, no matter what it takes.
Have a nice day there in Obozoland,
And what, the damage Romney will do in 4 (or possible 8 years) counts for nothing?
On what policy does Obambi and Mittens differ?
Romney is an extreme liberal pretending to be a moderate or, at times, a conservative. A pretender will never get my vote. I vote for honesty, if honesty is not there, I don’t vote (that old conviction thingy hounds me day and night).
But I'm sure you express great horror at evils that Romney might inflict on the country...right?
Tell you what, you have your little tantrum and stay home on election night. Let the grownups take care of business.
And my answer is simple: compared to Barack Obama?
You know this is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan.
This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.. Newt Gingrich
By a Lot if Obama is re-elected, ugh!
I’m ready to move to Boreno!
“I vote for honesty, if honesty is not there, I dont vote (that old conviction thingy hounds me day and night).”
Well, that is a very noble attitude, but you better consider that a second Obama term may very well be the end of America.
You remind me of the British in the Revolutionary War.
They stood on tradition/conviction and lost.
If you are going to fight rats, you must get down in the gutter....tradition and conviction be damned.
Get rid of the Marxist, then you can restore the dignity
and your convictions.
He already won.
He set up the next election against a clone of himself so he can't lose!
Don't vote for Robomney!
A whiter shade of fail. The difference is literally skin deep!
It’s ONLY 4 1/2 more year. I mean we can’t have Romney destroy the ONE’S plans, can we?
Note to self: a lot of Obama supporters out here.
Very Little—he will have a Republican Congress to block him. Nothing will be done until events force them—such as a big war, natural disaster, more economics collapse or Civil Unrest.
By a Lot if Obama is re-elected, ugh!
I’m ready to move to Boreno!
Bush Taxes will expire. But the Supreme Court is not a for sure. Obama MIGHT get to change one liberal for another and won’t change a thing. So far, he has only replaced liberal with liberal. The Supreme Court is the last thing to change during a second term.
Sorry, my convictions stand ... God is still in charge and he will make the final decision. When I stand before him, I can say, with a clear conscience “I didn’t vote for either” because both were unworthy.
I disagree. If Obama wins, there will be four years of benign gridlock.
If Romney wins, our preteen daughters will be forced into polygamous marriages to “husbands” who are older by decades and we will all be forced to don magical underwear. Bibles will not be available for sale except as an exhibit attached to the Book of Mormon. And did I tell you about the compulsory missions yet?
Not convinced? Maybe you’re not facing reality.
“Im ready to move to Boreno!”
Indonesia would be OK, except for the Muzies, but
you are welcomed here in the Philippines.
That is pretty much the spoiled brat attitude.
No it is not a spoiled brat attitude. It is a mature adult decision. It is a decision not to sell out. Why should we allow the GOPe to win....when will it end? When they decide that Mayor Bloomberg deserves to run on the Republican ticket? You have to have principles at some point in your life.
Exacly!!!!!!!!!!!!!.if we buckle down.......we can survive (Im lucky)but thats nether here nor there...
The problem becomes..Can our kids or grand kids!!!
I applaud your resolve. I’m also glad you’re insignificant minority. oh bummer must be removed.
Will we at least be allowed to choose the color of our mandatory magic underwear?
We may be a minority, but we are of sufficient size to render Romney “insignificant” following his defeat. Hopefully, we can then reunite.
If you think Romney’s defeat would be a disaster, it is a preventable disaster. Just don’t nominate Romney.
“You have to have principles at some point in your life.”
In love and war, principles count for very little.
Just ask the British about that.
If you do not win the war, your principles will be worth zip, zero, nada.
Only if you’re a bishop.
The entire Obama regime propaganda on unemployment is driven by the fact that they keep REDUCING THE SIZE OF THE WORKFORCE. People can only collect unemployment benefits for 99 weeks. As soon as a person goes beyond 99 weeks, the Obama regime declares that person as NO LONGER IN THE WORKFORCE. There are people who have been unemployed for over two years who would work if they could find anything, but the rat bastards in the Obama regime and their propaganda arm, the media, just evaporate these people from existence, and they additionally reduce the size of the labor force arbitrarily, just so they can hit whatever predetermined number Valerie Jarret, David Axelrod, Timmy Geithner and Ben Bernanke decide it is going to be. This is what they are doing on every single unemployment report. It is all as fake as a Thai Rolex. Eventually, the Obama regime will go full-Marxist stupid, drop the labor force to 52 million and declare that Great Leader Obama has delivered a FULL EMPLOYMENT ECONOMY. And anyone who dares disagree will be shot in the back of the head with one of those 450 million rounds of .40 cal that the Obama regime just ordered.
“youre insignificant minority.”
Wel then heck, you Romney voters have nothing to worry about.... it’s in the bag for ol’ Mittens.
Oh, please come back and tells again how insignificant we are..... after the election.
I would have voted for NEWT.
What will he do? He’ll do more cocaine.
That or treasonous fools.
” If Obama wins, there will be four years of benign gridlock.”
Executive Orders sound familiar?
