The wolves are circling the Obama campaign
American Thinker ^ | 06/13/2012 | Rick Moran

Posted on 06/13/2012 4:17:41 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Dana Milbank has a good summation of what he calls Obama's "Junius Horribilis":

"Job growth has stalled, the Democrats have been humiliated in Wisconsin, the attorney general is facing a contempt-of-Congress citation, talks with Pakistan have broken down, Bill Clinton is contradicting Obama, Mitt Romney is outraising him, Democrats and Republicans alike are complaining about a "cascade" of national-security leaks from his administration, and he is now on record as saying that the "private sector is doing fine." Could it get any worse?

Early Monday morning, Obama learned that it could. His aides delivered the news to him that his commerce secretary had been cited for a felony hit-and-run after allegedly crashing his car three times over the weekend. [...]

For the White House, it was just the latest entry in the when-it-rains-it-pours ledger. This has been one of the worst stretches of the Obama presidency. In Washington, there is a creeping sense that the bottom has fallen out and that there may be no second term. Privately, senior Obama advisers say they are no longer expecting much economic improvement before the election.

Carney had the unenviable task of confronting the full arsenal of gloom at Monday afternoon's briefing."

The press, like a pack of wolves, is circling the injured Obama campaign, snapping and growling before moving in for the kill:

Privately, senior Obama advisers say they are no longer expecting much economic improvement before the election.

This is the most devastating news for our Dear Leader. They've tried and tried to convince the American people the economy is growing, but that's a tough sell to the millions who are out of work. And as I've been saying for the last month or so, Obama's fail-safe point regarding the economy has passed. There just isn't enough time between now and November to make the economic pendulum of public opinion swing back in Obama's favor.

This explains the new narrative that the republicans ordered a steak dinner then left him the tab-

...well the answer to that is that Obama THEN ordered several dozen lobster (at market prices) with a side of Kobe beef and truffles, and is STILL SITTING AT THE TABLE ORDERING MORE

Oh, bull. The media just stopped licking boots for a few minutes. The media moving in for the kill would be how they treated Richard Nixon.

Privately, senior Obama advisers say they are no longer expecting much economic improvement before the election.

Years ago, it was generally accepted that it took about 18 months for the economy 'train' to go into recession and hit bottom, and about the same amount of time for it to recover after it hit bottom and incentives were instituted.

That would mean that Team Obama should have implemented policies by last summer (2011) for any improvements to be seen now and to the election. All those bailouts seem to be EPIC FAIL.

As with last week, the economic news has gotten worse, not better. Job creation and family income both tanked. Joblessness edged upward, rather than downward.

Even many Dems and Dem-supporting newsies seem to have turned against The One recently. The behind-closed-doors meetings are probably filled with weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Hi Mr K.

And here is a pic of the "great reader" (peas be upon him) learning from his senior advisors (those old white geezers for those in Rio Vista) ...

how to flip a coin and use it to make important decisions concerning the fate of the nation....

Obambi: ....OK I think I got it....

Heads....Wagu beef....

Tails.....Lobster....thats the easy one....

Senior advisor "thinks"....and your re-election chances are about as good as the coin landing on it's edge.

We’ll know it’s really over for Obummer when the Norwegians ask him to give the Peace Prize back. Or maybe when Columbia and Harvard decide to release his transcripts. Or when Hawaii comes clean about his birth records. Or when the sole “achievement” of his administration, the PPACA, is found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Or when Holder stops stonewalling about the nefarious crap he’s been doing. Or when ...

Somewhere on the Internet is a parable of Obama having dinner with a businessman and step by step taking the dinner and everything that he owns and redistributing it to those the Resident thinks as more worthy. It ends with the statement by Obama that the businessman should have stopped him at the dinner roll.

I just wish and pray that this country stops this incessant hero/rock star worship of these presidents and politicians, their wives, and their family members.

No matter whom the president, they should be seen as part of the greater whole — a free republic and nation of laws — not a “savior” or a “visionary” or however else they like to paint these people. It’s our FORM of government/ Constitution that should be revered. We should judge our leaders by how well they follow it.

I’m also damn tired of the excessive travel and high living. They should be confined more to the White House and the business of the country. And we don’t a First Lady to be a fashion maven, or tell us what to do or eat. I’m an OVER their “pet causes.”

Personally, I can’t wait for Julius Horribilis. By then, SCOTUS will have deep-sixed Obamacare and the WH really will be in a panic.

Another indication of the Ohaha team's disconnect with reality----they actually think putting the snarling, fang-toothed Michelle on the campaign trail is an asset.

Now they got her going "populist"---those posh vacations and royal soirees of hers are a no-go with the unemployed hordes her husband created.

She was on the food network---and did a Letterman Top Ten.....that's for starters. Maybe the 2012 team'll get her on Dancing With The Stars.

It's been obvious that obama has no future in politics for several months now and more and more obvious by the day, but the most fun will be watching the sharks.

They've been swimming in circles around and around, but not daring to take a bite, since those who have tried have been singled out for the almighty's wrath.

But now there's blood in the water and they are getting more bold. The surface is somewhat still now, but it's only a matter of time before the boiling, bloody froth.

People talk about the wheels coming off the bus, but this should be far more dramatic.

More like losing a propeller blade at full throttle and then watching the unbalanced spinning mass shake itself into oblivion.

We're not flying any more...we're crashing...start looking for a clear place to put it down...

The Nobel prize winners will be announced before the election. The Norwegians are more likely to give Obama a second Peace Prize than to take away the one they gave him. Since they didn’t have a reason to give him the first one (other than that he was not George Bush), they don’t need a reason to give him another (he’s still not George Bush).

In part because of what passes for "news" these days and the apparent lack of demand for true journalism, I'm thoroughly convinced a LOT of pain and suffering will have to happen before a majority of our fellow citizens wake up and give any serious thought to giving a damn about the direction we're headed.

Generations of blissful and willful ignorance—"fat, dumb and happy"—as a way of life will not be overcome by anything less than another Great Depression.

The White House in a panic is NOT something I look forward to seeing.

If Obummer reaches the point (read: when his advisors tell him) that any hope of winning re-election is lost, then the fireworks begin.

These domestic communists are NOT going quietly into that good night. They’ve been hoping and praying and struggling for decades to get their hands on the levers of power and now they have them. They won’t relinquish power without a fight.

Any side bets on when the “national emergency” is declared? I expected the middle of October but now I’m thinking September, or possibly sooner.

Mmmmmm.....it seems like only yesterday......(/snix)

CAN IT GET ANY WORSE FOR OBAMA? Job growth has stalled, his key legilsation---healthcare---is about to go kaputski, his stimulus flopped,the Democrats have been humiliated in Wisconsin, the attorney general is facing a contempt-of-Congress citation, talks with Pakistan have broken down, Bill Clinton is contradicting Obama, Mitt Romney is outfunding him, Democrats and Republicans alike are complaining about a "cascade" of national-security leak, and Obama is now on record as saying that the "private sector is doing fine."

Let's not forget the GSA conference scandal---symptomatic of Ohaha's freespending "spread the wealth" progressivism. Notice how practiced they are at govt fraud....indicating this was done over and over. Probably there is an internal Govt Fraud Network with all of 'em colluding in ways to bilk the taxpayers?

GSA official Jeff Neely, posing in photos posted on Google Plus by his wife Deborah, enjoying Wine and Soak in Spa Tub at posh Hotel during one of several tax-paid "Pre-Conference" Meetings. Apr 16, 2012. The eight pre-conference trips alone cost the government $130,000, according to the GSA investigation.

Neely also traveled to several other luxury resorts and to Hawaii. About 115 expensive IPads--- listed as "prizes" for the LV conference are missing---one was traced to Neeley's daughter who apparently does not work for the GSA. Inspector General Brian Miller has referred this case to the DOJ for possible criminal investigation.

There just isn't enough time between now and November to make the economic pendulum of public opinion swing back in Obama's favor.

That leaves them with other options. A contrived war. The plague. The zombie apocalypse. A total economic meltdown triggered at the right moment.

All likely scenarios including zombies.

My bet is economic collapse and plague.
