Under Obama, things are getting worse
The Florida Times Union ^ | June 1, 2012 | Matt Towery

No matter what propaganda we see from the elite media or from Barack Obama supporters, the American people will not be fooled.

The May report by The Conference Board showed consumer confidence at its lowest point in the last five months.

Businesses are already building in the increased costs of doing business in America if Obama wins a second term.

They have already been regulated to death, but the threats that come with four years, particularly if Republicans do not control both the House and Senate, have virtually every entity that employs people - from the largest to the smallest - preparing for the worst.

It appears Obama believes in his own form of trickle down economics - we just trickle down to nothing.

Unfortunately it’s not obvious to quite a few people — or we wouldn’t have all those people right here who literally prefer an Obama second term.

Unfortunately a lot of them are aware. They are barbarians and looters who intend to drain the host and get "theirs" before the country dies. Their Democrat leaders are aware too, but many of them hate the US and want to destroy the country - a marriage made in hell.

Well at least those people who have the desire to work and don’t want the government “to give them a helping hand.”

"I have this feeling he’s gonna get in again."

Wash yo mouth out with soap. . . . . .
Even with Romney I really think it is going to be a landslide of epic proportions.
I really think enough of his so-called supporters have seen enough. They may not vote for Romney they just may not vote at all. . . . .

Yes I hope not; pray not that we are stuck with him a second term.

BUT

There may be some political earthquakes this year. Dunno.

I actually think he doesn’t care if he loses now. I think he knows how the SCOTUS vote went (against him I believe) and it will be just too dang much work for him to stick it out for another 4 years.He needed Obamacare for the transformation. Plus the media is starting to actually report more on him and more people are waking up.

Look for Obama to wag the dog in Syria around October.

I’m thinking Iran by that time-frame. It could be Syria before that.

He’s also still trying to make a “peace deal” and Netanyahu, yes, Netanyahu and his aides talk like they’re ready to make one happen.

If you believe in God, and the fact that He is the one that chooses leaders, it becomes easy to vote strictly upon principals. I will be able to look myself in the mirror knowing I voted for a candidate who stands on this foundation:
The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.

This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The Constitution of these United States provides that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." The Constitution Party supports the original intent of this language. Therefore, the Constitution Party calls on all those who love liberty and value their inherent rights to join with us in the pursuit of these goals and in the restoration of these founding principles.

The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical law, administered by representatives who are Constitutionally elected by the citizens. In such a Republic all Life, Liberty and Property are protected because law rules.

We affirm the principles of inherent individual rights upon which these United States of America were founded:

“I will be able to look myself in the mirror knowing I voted for a candidate who stands on this foundation:”

Rational people also consider the CONSEQUENCES of their actions. A vote for anyone other than Romney, IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA.

Obama isn’t getting in again.

Look folks, I know most of us here don’t like Romney, I know I sure don’t, but this election isn’t about the Republican candidate, and never was.

So long as the republicans didn’t put up a candidate that could be painted as more extreme and scarier than Obama, that’s all that mattered. And there is no way Romney can be painted that way.

This election is a flat out referendum on Obama, nothing more, just like 08 was a referendum on Bush.

Here’s the deal.

Obama is not going to get above 42-43% of the popular vote, that’s his high water mark, that is assuming he does EVERYTHING perfectly, and frankly his campaign to date has been a fustercluck.

He’s not going to win, WI,IA,OH,FL,NC,VA,IN,PA and I am perhaps even MI. CO is likely not going to stay blue for the buffoon, either.

We are looking at a spanking that we haven’t seen since Reagan/Mondale. The EC won’t be 49 to 1 like that election, but the popular vote is going to be in the same range. If Obama’s campaign continues to be as bad as it is right now, he’s not even going to get 40% of the popular vote.

The internals have shown for at least 6 months, folks recognize completely what a disaster and mistake this guy has been, and are going to crawl over broken glass to send him packing. Don’t buy for one minute this is a close race, its not.

There is no such thing as a undecided voter when it comes to a national election with an incumbent.. anyone who isn’t committed to the incumbent today, isn’t going to break for him between now and november, its falacy to think they will, and fact is historically some of those that claim they support him now will not vote for him on election day.

Here’s the simple fact:

President Obama is going to have the dubious distinction of being the ONLY president in the modern era to end his term with fewer americans working than were the day he took office. Not just a smaller precentage working, fewer overall working period. You can’t spin that away, you can’t propoganda it away, you can’t blame congress away.

When he should have been focusing on the economy, he focused on passing an unconstitutional bill and driving up our national debt. A bill that BTW will be thrown out in its entirety by the Supreme Court prior to election day. Folks can’t find work, and he’s out there playing up gay marriage.. etc. The guys toast. He’s basically been fiddling while Rome burned.

This race is not going to be close on election day folks, its going to be a routing.. and if the administration thinks doubling down on socialist/communist ideals will gain them support, like they are doing with their attacks on Bain etc.. they will wind up with well under 40% of the vote in November.

The press is going to keep trying to prop this guy up through summer, but once fall hits, and the writing is on the wall, even they will no longer be able to deny the blood in the water and the feeding frenzy will begin.

Blasphemer!

Voting for Romney is voting against God hisself!

He is 11ty billion times worse than obama.

The plan is to hope Obama wins, then, then we finally get the pure as the wind driven snow candidate to win in 16.

You don’t seem to understand what I’m saying.
1. If God wants Obama in power for 4 more years THAT’S WHAT WILL HAPPEN. (same applies for Romney)
2. Aren’t you tired of using that cliche?

That’s pretty much what I’ve been saying.

In short, Americans have always voted their pocketbook when it was in trouble. At this point there’s no possible way to spin the affect Obama’s had on American pocketbooks. The deed is done.
