Obama Plans to Lay Out 'Specific Agenda' for 2nd Term (a more positive message on the way)
Yahoo! News ^ | 7/31/12 | Devin Dwyer | ABC OTUS News

Posted on 07/31/2012 2:03:11 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

President Obama hinted Monday evening that his re-election campaign will transition to a more positive and forward-looking message by the end of next month and into the fall.

Obama told a group of high-dollar donors at a New York City fundraiser that he intends to spend "a lot of time talking about the specific agenda that I intend to pursue in the second term."

Obama has faced criticism from some members of his party and key constituencies for not laying out clearly enough what his priorities will be if he's re-elected. He has also taken heat for running a predominantly negative, anti-Romney TV ad campaign in battleground states.

"This phase of the campaign I think you're seeing a lot of negative ads and a lot of contrast ads, although when people start saying how terrible it is I just have to remind them to take a look at what Jefferson and Adams had to say about each other, and democracy has always been pretty rough and pretty messy," Obama said.

The specifics of any Obama program don’t interest me. He is a fan of big, authoritarian leftist government, which I oppose.

I reckun O is working closely with the rest of the Big Gubamint heads and his Cabinet.
It must be in secret. Yeah, that's it, secret.

Then again, some have admitted how distant he is..
how uninvolved he is in legislation, to the extent of 'zero' .. zippo, nada.

Obama Plans to Lay Out 'Specific Agenda' for 2nd Term

1. America as you've known it will disappear.

2. All property lines will be erased.

3. The dollar will become worthless.

Is that specific enough?

Whatever the “message” is it will be a pack of lies. He cannot reveal his true intentions. He would never get elected if he told the truth.

What he SAYS he’ll do in a second term won’t be half as bad as what he’ll actually do.

IOW, his agenda to redistribute Other People's Money to his favored tools.

Even the most positive message that Obama could project still turns out to be strongly negative. More borrowing, accelerated spending, and total tone deafness in regards to the REAL wealth generators in this country. Just more of the last three-and-a-half years, only now pumped up on steroids.

And with WAY more attitude.

He’s taken over 3.5 years to come up with an agenda. What is all this damage he has been doing, just Obama being Obama? No thanks! The only thing worse than a fool is a fool with a foolish plan.

Obama promised during his last campaign that he would be a uniter

So, now in the 15th and almost last quarter of his tenure he's finally getting around to it?

OBAMA STYLE

How Obama Will Continue to Govern In A Second Term:

INEPTOCRACY (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) -

A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

“Is that specific enough?”

I think it will be more on the level of:

1. Good stuff will happen to most people in America. The government will take care of you and you will smile.
2. But if there’s someone you resent because they have lots of money, we’ll do really mean things to them and they will be sad.
3. Romney has stinky socks and is a felon. Obama’s press secretary will hold fast to the position that this is a positive vision because moving from Romney (minus) to Obama (plus) and everyone knows that subtracting a negative number from a positive number results in an even bigger positive win for America.

A more positive way? Hmm. A negative multiplied by a positive results in a negative. Then where are we? (asked in an inoccuous, totally submissive manner.) [snork] sd

...and why would anyone believe he would pursue such an agenda, after the way he screwed over all his supporters who believed he would pursue his stated agenda for his first (and hopefully, only) term?

Because they are Libs, and Libs are like Charlie Brown & the football: always expecting a different outcome from the same liars.

Scraped yesterday. Obama is presiding over an economic disaster. And not one critical headline. All anti Romney GOP.

INEPTOCRACY (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) - ...


Bwaahahahaha! That is the exact teeshirt I chose to wear to go shopping in town today. Royal blue, with white lettering.

My wife wore her “I’ll keep my money, guns, and ammo; you keep the change” on front; “NOBAMA” on the back tee. We always get great remarks on them.

Second term agenda: lie, cheat, and steal on a grander scale.

I saw a TV ad of his today (very surprisingly, they seem to be few, and far between here in Maine), that stated that his #1 priority was to “reduce the deficit”! The SOB has run up trillion plus deficits every year that he has occupied the WH. There wasn’t/isn’t enough duct tape to keep my head intact after viewing it.

The problem in this neck of the woods is the fact that we have a VERY large amount of uneducated/uninformed voters (and a large amount of the populace on the govt teet), that will see this, and once again vote for the guy thinking he’s doing the right thing, and they’ll wait for their mailboxes to receive the monthly “feeding”.

“Don’t look at my record- look at what I promise!”

Oh yeah, the media will love that.
Any mention of his record will be “negative campaigning”. Everything that happened during his administration will go down the memory hole.

The media has been pleading with the Obama campaign to let them cover up for him and attack his opponents.
Now they have the plan.

Why wait? If berry has this great plan, why not put in play now. It just might pull his ashes out of the fire... or not.

Obummer's plan for his second term:

1) Require every state to let the unions in.

2) welcome all ilegals to vote.

3) NATIONALIZE ALL BUSINESSES (since we earn it)

4) Rip up the constitution

Or, as Peter Noone would say, “Second verse, same as the first!”

However, there would in fact be a big difference if that Commie manages to get elected a second time, namely, the Pubs will have both parts of Congress, so all Obummer could do is govern by executive order and obstruct anything else from being done. It’s also likely that all Congressional Dims except the overtly avowed Commie Rats in Congress will not be carrying any more water for Bammy. Actually, that’s the case in Congress right now. There doesn’t appear to be hardly anyone from either party paying any attention whatsoever to Prez Hussein, except for the Rats running for re-election who are running away from him.

The other difference is that this time around the Pubs are likely to sue the crap out of Zero over every one of his illegal executive orders.
