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...
Garbage, salacious garbage to sell books.
A Dem passionately campaigned for Ron Paul. They voted for Obamao and saw the error of their ways. Too bad Newt dropped out as there is no way I’ll vote for the windsock.
In other works, he's a moron.
Remember last night we were talking about "Cruisin' for a bruisin'! HA! I love it!
You mean stoned and holding a pair of tablets?
My idea. VOTE MITTENS but give him a Tea Party Congress and Senate—If you can’t bring yourself to do Tea Party—Then Conservatives should do—even if they are Blue Dog Democrats.
Given a Conservative Congress—he will swing there way—the right way! He will reverse much of the problems of Obama—BUT he must have a Majority! If the Democat/Communists have enough they will block and snipe using the Media to try to paint Mitt as a new Bush. We must keep that from Happening!
I guess they have finally figured out that sucking even worse than their Republican opponent is not a good election strategy.
You know, if he doesn’t get reelected it’s not like it’s going to be bad. All that money from books, perks from being potus, photo ops he will do, more books, blah blah blah...
He’ll be going off to live the life of milk and honey.
Whereas the rest of us slobs are struggling with the economy he’s made and left for us.
Thanks for the link, J, looks like it might be a good read. I’ll check it out in the morning. :)
No turn unstoned—yep, that’s our guy all right.
When people say `Hi’ to him, he says, `Yes.’
One of the biggest things going for Obama is the lack of knowledge of the American people.
heh, heh, heh
Yep, you really called it and big time panic is where Zer0’s at.
It’s going to be very interesting to see just how much more he comes unhinged, I believe we haven’t seen anything yet. LOL!
These pics available on 'net' a few years back; don't know if they still are or not; but perhaps with this book; they are back? Don't know. Also; some 'fun' may have been had - then or now - with some of the pics (Exotique may have had creative use?) but no question; that Ann Dunham is the legitimate star of these photographs. And this should not be so surprising. They do make sense; in Ann Dunham's world, where she shared her company with Frank Marshall Davis.
(Think too; 'en toto'; the pics themselves; while racy; are still, somewhat innocent. And Ann Dunham, certainly 'brave'/rebellious/daring. . .enough to go here.)
'Frank' (first name only used) was included in Obama's (and Bill Ayers') book. Obama offered that 'Frank' was his greatest 'mentor'; had most profound influence; or something to that effect. Given that Frank Marshall Davis an was an avowed communist (and amateur photographer) from Chicago; there may be more to story; as to how Obama ended up in Chicago. FMD; had many connections; friends; 'fellow travelers' who helped Obama. Including here, Bill Ayers father; who too; was a communist and active in Chicago; as was FMD; before moving to Hawaii.
We can note that the book title DOES not say 'Dreams OF My Father; but rather 'From'; My Father'.
This important; as we know that Obama; shares the same vision as FMD; per recreating America. . .
Know what my conclusions are.
The USA had to make an “Alli” out of Papa Joe Stalin.
Defeating the AXIS powers was more important than anything else, at that time.
The USA had to make an “Alli” out of the Taliban, when the USSR invaded Afghanistan.
Winning the Cold War was more important than anything else, at that time.
Defeating Obama is the most important thing we can do to save our Country.
DEFEATING the WORST CANDIDATE is often the only choice we have.
Again, grow up and face reality.
I am an American Soldier...defender of freedom against tyranny
and when I enter the valley of death
and the agent of Satan appears at my shoulder
I will be resolute and fear no evil
Paul will never be the nominee, but more than we, he is capable of monkey wrench diplomacy, which is exactly what the Establishment has coming. Paul has no use for them and has been willing to stick around and say so.
I consider that a favor to the rest of us.
Agree per strategy. With Mitt; we can work for more Conservatives to ‘guide’ the Mother ship; so to speak. With Obama; it will be impossible to implement ‘Conservative Change’; and perhaps, impossible to ‘win’ another Election. Obama could well, just cancel them.
Sununu is so old old and he gave us Souter.
If O’dumbo was White, everyone would be all over him without mercy. It would be a major Jimmah Carter slaughter.
Does not matter how we mix or match. As bad as Romney is; he is STILL, FAR better than opponent, Obama. And with ‘right’ Congress; Mitt will get better. Under Obama; we should prepare for ‘anything’; including not having a Congress.
That's what I'm afraid of. Cornered animals are highly dangerous.
No, the old old John H Sununu gave us Souter. His son, John E Sununu, a former senator from New Hampshire, wrote this Boston Globe piece.
Cornered MARXISTS are even more dangerous,
It’s amazing how quickly you can turn an anti-Obama post into an anti-Romeny one.
Do you really like Obama that much?
PS, Newt endorses Romney
Palin endorses Romney
Santorum endorses Romney
Tim Paw endorses Romney
Bauchmann endorses Romney
Cain endorses Romney
........ but you know better ,,,, ?
That’s exactly what about 20 people are trying to do.
i think anything is possible- but the comments on the video states that all ann dunham records has her listed as a MALE gender.. you think she could be a transvestite is what im saying? i asked snopes about this and they scrubbed about the vids. stange huh? that would be really messed up if she were a man—lol- nodody accually seen any pregnant photos of her - and those two peeps in the vid looks like trannys—lol..
JOHN SUNUNU(THE SON) VOTED AGAINST DRILLING IN ANWAR. HE LOST THE NEXT ELECTION. TO HELL WITH HIM.
do you know how to open these?
