Skip to comments.If Obama wins, what would he do in a second term?

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.
But Romney was cagey about what, exactly, that would mean: His only specific prediction was that Obama would remake the Supreme Court. So it was helpful when, at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner a week ago, the president opened up about the secret agenda he has planned. In my first term, he joked, we ended the war in Iraq; in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas. . . . In my first term, we passed health-care reform; in my second term, I guess Ill pass it again.
In other speeches, Obama has offered a more serious preview of what hed like to get done if hes reelected. On March 30, he listed second-term priorities including reforming the immigration system; remaking the nations energy policy so it addresses the long-term challenges. . . . of energy independence and climate change; doing more to ensure that people who dont have work can find work and that our housing system is working for everybody; pushing forward on education reform; and executing an effective transition out of Afghanistan.
But thats not really a list of what Obama would do in his second term. Its a list of what he would like to do.

face plant down marble stairs at the WH?
F everything up more??
We’d see an immediate attack on gun rights via Executive Order that makes ‘Fast & Furious’ look like a board game.
Be sure to include 400+ rounds of golf in the list.
MooseChelle would likely wear out a whole fleet of vacation airplanes.
(2) He also will create a CCC/WPA type organization that will have police state duties, after rioting starts after No. 1.
Reminds me of the apocryphal question FDR asked of his secretary as he considered Einstein’s letter advising him of the potential of an atom bomb, “If Hitler had a bomb that could destroy entire cities what would he do?” She answered “He’d use it”. If Obama had another four years with no reelection worries? He’d destroy this republic.
Depends on whether his party wins Congress.
And how, exactly, would a GOP-controlled house and senate restrain Obie’s use of Executive Orders, USSC and other judge appointments and nominaitons and foreign treaties to continue with his destruction of the USA? Perhaps by calling for his impeachment. But other than that, we’d still be royally screwed.
If the Lord God lets Obama get reelected then there is no Lord God! There is NOTHING any one can say or write that can convince me other wise.
I’m so tired of all the let downs:
1.) No leardership
2.) No direction
3.) No faith in God
4.) No faith in our country
5.) No hope in our fellow man
6.) No real men
7.) No family unit support
8.) No fighting for our rights
9.) No real reporters
10.) No NOTHING
Please God in heaven help us in real time of need!!
Issue executive orders and continue his destruction of the U.S. via his czars.
The punk POTUS will go ape shit governing via EO. He'll say we don't need no steeenkin' congress.
He will be the cause of Revolution II.
Hopefully this time, we will use the French approach to those who loose....and loose the libs will.
It depends on whether or not Mitt kills the down ticket as well. We lose the House and you and I may wind up in reeducation camps. We keep the house and gain nothing else and look for the US to go full out Euro-Socialist. We keep the house and gain the senate and you will see Bam Bam sending out trial baloons to see if all his shiney new afirmative action generals will support him in a “temporary” suspension of the other branches of government.
Countdown until Jackwagon leaves Office: 258 days as of May 7, 2012.
I hope he shoots that little leftist shit Ezra Klein for being a weasel. It would be a mercy killing in the eyes of some; just weeding out the sellouts and weak, in the eyes of the Obama people.
Excuse me. I have to go take an “Ezra Klein”.
Transfer Americans money to his stash in Geneva unless you voluntarily contribute to it - just like Stalin. $9 gas. Lots of people will be disappeared.
He will laugh like Caligula as people scream.
Finish destroying America.

The Lord God is Ruler of the Universe. Whether Obama, or anyone else thinks that is irrelevant. He just is, as everyone is about to find out. He IS, and he RULES in the affairs of men and the Universe. - I think Obama is a judgement of God on this country, and the world, Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Clintons and all their minions. We are the things created, and as such, His ways are above our ways and His thoughts above our pitiful thoughts.
Group therapy for me.
My 6 grandkids!! They are what it is about! The Lord God must help me protect them.
I’m a Tea Party member who has been to many an events and donated 100’s of dollars to help get the word out.
I too lecture on the Constitution and have studied it for more 55 years. It will take a true leader to get us out of this mess we are in. That leader will need the Lord God to give him or her the drive to lead and lead us out.
He is NOT joking!
One thing I know he’ll do is what the British Labour party did during the long Blair/Brown years: Remove all immigration restrictions and take in millions of immigrants for no other reason but to give the Democrat Party a permanent electoral majority.
He will begin the Obama Momma 2016 campaign.
Apparently, whatever he wants.
No opposing body seems to be strong enough or willing enough to stop him.
YET, we have "Freepers?" such as Waywardson who want all of us to abstain from voting for Mittens and goes so far as to frame his arguments wrapped around "Christianity and Patriotism," as outlined in his INSANE and DELUSIONAL RANT yesterday: " "Why Christians and Patriots CANNOT vote for Mitt Romney
I'm still shaking my head over that one and what you claimed our FASCIST, NARCISSISTIC, NEO-COMMIE, AMERICA-HATING, TERRORIST-SUPPORTING, Dear Leader would do, is only the tip of the iceberg and will no doubt harm our Republic to a point we may not recover for decades....IF EVER.
Sure, stay home and help O'Bummer get re-elected.
Makes sense to me!!!!! /s
Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967
Ronald Reagans warning about losing our freedoms echoes down through a generation of lost momentum and squandered opportunity.
We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.
In any case, Americans will get the country it apparently wants and a country it so richly deserves.
I would have voted for Newt.
Necessity is the mother of invention. I'm sure we'll think of something.
My conscience is clear. I have no intent of facing my maker with excuses about the lesser evil.
Its something I gave a lot of thought to many months ago and I have to put my own soul first because there is no collective salvation and I can’t save America by myself.
One of the few things I’m sure of is that I’ll never feel guilty about not voting for Romney.
If your concience leads you to that conclusion, than use your intelligence, seek good guidance, and do what you need to do. I don’t condemn you for reaching a different conclusion that I do.

Here’s my dilemma.
If Romney is but Obama lite and he clearly is, and if Romney has the presidency and add to that his GOPE kingmakers behind him to push the very same things they objected to and stopped without a single vote, but will eagerly pass under Romney, then what have I prevented?
The GOPE purposely killed the Republican Party this year. They are expecting us to support that killing, by working us over with another force feed, of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”— certain that we will swallow whatever they dish up. We always have before, and we will again, and we always will, until we STOP.
It will not be of the Lord’s doing, but of the people’s. Thinking Sodom and Gomorrah here, the creation and worshipping of Baal, and the possible results that would go along with it for years of punishment and depravity until we are ready to come back.
I’m sure all those who insist that a candidate be a perfect conservative before getting their vote, have spouses that look just like Marilyn Monroe or Cary Grant (or the modern day equivalent of them). Of course, they are themselves perfect in every way. They also have the perfect car, perfect house, perfect children, and the perfect job.
They care for nothing or no one but themselves and their bubble of perfection.
I DID vote for Newt.
A nation of sheep begets a gov’t of wolves.
If you study much of human history, every movement or school meets its end when zealots attempt to control its ideological purity.
My conscience is clear. I've been warning you, and many others, for a very long time about what was happening in the Republican Party.
But don't kid yourself, the catastrophe is already upon you. And it has little to do with Barack Obama. It's the fruit of the compromise of a whole generation of Americans...including, and perhaps especially, a whole generation of Americans who call themselves "conservative."
