What Charlotte Didnít Change for Obama
ABC News ^ | Sep 7, 2012 | Rick Klein

Posted on 09/07/2012 4:13:28 AM PDT by 867V309

The president implored his audience to not “buy into the cynicism” of believing change isn’t possible. The nation, though, has grown skeptical of its future, and perhaps of its president.

I’ve noticed ABC is taking on Obama & his administration more than other networks.

Democrats watched the Democrat Convention. Republicans watched the Republican Convention. Independents watched “Dancing With The Stars”. Neither show caused any real shift in one direction or the other because both shows were preaching to their choirs.

At some point, even delusional partisans see that they are being lied to on a regular basis.

Sam Donaldson nailed it when he compared Obama to a poker player trying to win a huge pot while holding a pair of deuces.

The only thing his followers “Hope” for is, some more purple drank, and an extra EBT card every so often.

A lot of the delegates here in Charlotte came away with the realization that the Democratarty is nothing like a democracy. The votes are a sham.

I didn’t watch any of the three and I know change is possible, but not with this failed bucket of puke we have in the White House.

Actually, anybody who was going to watch any convention coverage watched whichever was 1st, which was the RNC. Then fatigue sets in. That’s why the numbers were lower for the DNC.

Nothing has changed, he’s still a crappy, petulant, miserable excuse for an adult...and unfortunately President.

You are being too hard on him....after all he invented God on Wednesday of this week so the Democrats put put it in their platform. When did you do that?
I suppose that means Sunday services will now have to be called Wednesday services, (in recognition of Obama’s inventing Him) even though they will be held on Sunday.

I couldn't agree more.

There seem to be unusual cracks in the left-wing fascade though. Rasmussen shows Romney +3 and ABC News/Wash Post Romney +1 (!).

Frankly, I think team Romney missed a great opportunity at their convention by not having R&R, Rubio, Palin and Bachman pull down a huge row of Styrofoam greek columns...

Maybe it’s not cynicism, Barry. Your goosestepping followers believe everything you say as gospel. Back in 2008, before the bloom was off the rose, you said that if you hadn’t solved the economy in three years you didn’t deserve another term.

Well, it’s been four years and we’re still wastin’ away in Margaritaville. Adios muchacha!

Oh don't worry hussein, I'm not cynical, not cynical at all. I am hoping and praying for a change all right. I believe a change in our Country's dire condition is possible - through change. By changing out your administration wholesale for a Romney/Ryan administration I believe we can change the course this Country is on. Change the course from equality through shared misery and an ever larger government boot on our throats to equality of good economic opportunities, growth, and personal freedom.

First, NewsWEAK and the cover story telling Barry to hit the road, then Reuters with the teleprompter screen head...then, Jake Tapper squeaking little noises about how “perhaps” the MSM has shown a bias for B.O.

The MSM now smells Barry's blood in the water and are trying to figure out how and when to jump ship. Some “journalist” is going to either try to make a name for himself if he's young or try to resuscitate a dying career if already shuttled to the sidelines....My wild cards are Anderson Cooper or Ho-raldo. Once one of these guys goes all “truthy”....it's going to be a pile on of fascinating facts about The Won.

Mr. O is in for a rude awakening. He and his band of Chi thugs have NOWHERE to go other than a military strike on Iran (not going to happen) or race/class riots. Then he can come in and be the “healer” of a nation finally dealing with it's dirty laundry.

I know I sound cynical...but I will be very surprised if our country's inner cities are not in flames in a few weeks. I've never hated a politician before, but I do hate this guy. He'll be gone soon...and on the plus side, maybe our country will have learned not to be so soft, spoiled and gullible.

What I want to know is where do they find the idiots who write these headlines?

I've always been very interested in national politics and watch the conventions. The RNC was the best I've seen in 30+ years of watching. The DNC was an embarrassing lie-fest...but I did find it amusing all the “rah-rah American” hype.

Oh, and Eastwood...Dumb like a fox! I think he drew in a few million for Rubio, then Romney....and they heard Mitt say he would not “heal” the world—but help our families.

Very smart, IMHO.

I'm not sure how an Iran war would affect the election.

I don't think race/class conflicts are likely on a major scale. Hussein's support of homo marriage has alienated many Black pastors who are influential in the Black community. Hispanics are not historically prone to rioting, and the economic underclass is too drunk, stoned, lazy, disaffected or disoriented to care.

Let's just say that by this point they've started to notice a distinctive stagnant-to-downward trend for the Obama campaign, and they've begun to hedge their bets.

I may have accidentally watch a whole bloody single minute of the DNC live, saw a part of Clintons speech later. But overall I am truly saddened by the amount of quasi-patriotism displayed by the DNC delegates, so many jumping on the bandwagon to nowhere.

So many openly denying God, openly endorsing immoral social groups, accepting cultures such as Islam which by any and all regards are true enemies to America, no matter what they say.

I wish I had a special pair of glasses that would expose who is a democrat, because then I would see out amongst every the weak minded misguided fools amongst us, and I may scuff my boots a bit as well.

I think they are looking at the internals of their polling and thinking “no way we can spin him out of this”.

And this morning’s jobs report indicates no economic miracle is coming to save him either.

They are also looking at the prospects of finding campaign-destroying dirt on a Mormon and thinking that’s not likely to happen either.

At that point I believe Limbaugh’s theory kicks in and the objective becomes saving Liberalism as an institution. Even if that means The One has to cozy up to the bus tires.

Obama was just a shadow of himself last night. He still had the high sounding promises but they were scaled back—he lacked any program or how he would do things leaving us to assume it would be more taxes and Chinese loans. he just didn’t have the old magic. Its really sad, like the aging rock star trying for a come back—Look to see this guy run for other offices once he’s voted out—Look to see Michele divorce him, look to see him come out as Gay. He will try for Governor, lose, then a mayor, lose, etc... He will be building houses with Carter by 2016.

Even the editors of the liberal Charlotte Observer say his speech sucked:

Well, I must say, I hope you are right.

I mentioned bombing Iran and riots to highlight just how little this guy has to pull out of the Chi cess pool political handbag. Bombing something...anything....would lend weight to that “strong on national...whatever...he killed OBL”...

I'm still sticking to the race/class rile up and massive riots. I live in AZ and I can see how a certain segment could be riled up. I also just came back from Detroit/Chi, etc....And, it's already happening there, just on a smaller scale and the MSM won't talk about black on white mob attacks.

The class/OWS thing...well, you are right...they have seemed to fizzle. However, 2 months ago I read that our fav watermelon's (green on the outside, etc) Van Jones is in charge of OWS.

I'm not much of a conspiracy guy, but I see how a very desperate regime plays the only card they have: Community agitating on a big scale. It sounds ridiculous, I know...

But...what is this guy to do? The Romney $$$ machine is about to let go. The debates are coming. The numbers are going to fall. He IS a fraud and the drip, drip, drip of info that was tamped down by the MSM is circulating.

Mr. Obama is a thin skinned little wisp of a man. What's your guess on how he holds on to power?
