EXCLUSIVE MONDAY PREVIEW | OPINION
By John E. Sununu | JUNE 18, 2012
Its been a tough couple of weeks for President Obama, one of those stretches where everything seems to go south at once. The economy is soft, his poll numbers are down, and Europe has the markets on edge; Romney is even beating him in the money race. What was once hailed as personal confidence or condemned as arrogance is long gone. Panic has set in, and its making Team Obama do strange and disturbing things.
In Wisconsin, the result was merely a bit of comic relief. Fearful of making a personal appearance in a losing cause, Obama couldnt even bring himself to phone it in. Instead, he packed the power of the presidency into a 95-character tweet endorsing Tom Barretts challenge to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Barrett, a plainspoken former congressman, is far too nice to speak the truth: Thanks for nothing.
Next came a more pronounced gaffe: Obamas statement at a press conference that the private sector is doing fine. Panic can make anyone say crazy things, but blurting out irrational statements isnt exactly ideal for a president of the United States.
Aides tried desperately to walk things back, but the damage was done precisely because it revealed an element of truth about Obama................

could yall look at the comment section of this video and see if this has teeth?—thx
Barry is in a panic because its becoming clear to the masses of sheeple what we knew back in 2008: they guy is in completely over his head. Bill Clinton is right. He’s an “amateur” that fooled a lot of voters in 2008 because the media helped him, but he’s not fooling nearly as many in 2012.
And June is not over yet.
Still to come—Sheriff Joe’s press conference on the latest finds about Zippy birth, and the Supreme Court rulings on Arizona HB1070 and on Obamacare.
Pray hard, call your reps tomorrow and demand impeachment proceeedings if Zippy doesn’t rescind his order on illegal aliens, and make popcorn—lots of it.
Maybe a two word tweet would be good in November to Obummer and staff. YOU LOSE! or YOUR FIRED!
Thank you, Patton!
Romney should be done at convention if God is pleased to save us from another morally deprived abortion loving president partial to adopting innocent children out to queers.
Thanks be to God for the Ron Paul front! Whatever they can do to explode the GOPE and their nominee is a heck of a lot more than we conservatives bothered to do.
They are going to HOLD THE DANG LINE. We imploded, compromised and cooperated with the RINO plantation owners.
Good for RP! We may get a convention and NOT a coronation!
What is the President doing?
He has held 150 election fundraisers, jetted to Hollywood to raise money and make numerous appearances on late night talk shows.
He created his own trade treaty allowing foreign firms to ignore American Law.
This week he ignored congress to create his own program of amnesty and declared a national Gay and Lesbian month during a special event at the White House for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender supporters.
...and he continues to enjoy his time on the golf course.
These are the things he cares about.
Yeah, I’ll take the guy who’s jumped the shark on a few issues over the windsock. I even had a dem come to my door to campaign for him because of the economy.
Let’s cut to the chase. While the electorate was ready for a change in direction in ‘08, Obama was an underqualified liberal and the thing that put him over the top was his being black.
Fastforward to today and here we are fearful that his blackness may reelect him. Were he not black, his performance and the state of the economy would guarantee the loss of any other incumbent.
Sununu left out crooked as a dogs hind leg.
Zer0 is grasping at straws and isn't gonna find any because he can't throw any more money at the problems.
I guess now I will have to vote for Romney.
Yes Romney sucks.
Got a better viable option?
Or would you rather see another four years of Obama?
President Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History
You mean a dem campaigned for whom? Newt? Walker?
I believe Obama is done. This was NO year to have to nominate a socialist on a Republican ticket.
If Ron Paul & Company can correct that, I’m all for it.
The Supremes could announce the Arizona ruling as early as tomorrow morning...
