Obama under pressure to spell out his agenda for a second term

President Obama is taking heat from his Republican rivals and some members of his own party for being vague about his agenda for a second term.

On Thursday, Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan told a crowd at a campaign event in Florida that Obama “is not telling you what his second-term plan would be.”

he doesn’t have to - we know: more spending - more debt - more stimulus - more depression - more lies - more fraud - more danger - cover ups - etc.

This is not true.

I myself heard Obama clearly say he wants the Gov't to hire 100,000 new teachers.

Exactly what Bill Clinton used to say LOL!

Does Obama really need an agenda?

Does any liberal need one?

His agenda is that he is less of a millionaire vs. Romney and that’s why we should vote for him. That’s essentially his campaign message.

This is comical...we are mere weeks away to the election after this long, long campaign process and we have a headline saying Obama is under pressure to spell out a second term agenda. How he is above 30% in the polls is beyond me.

It’s simple. Tax and tax some more; keep up spending to have trillion $$ deficits; double the debt and bankrupt the country while instituting totalitarian and usurping policies and push to destroy US culture.

This about covers it.

You have to elect him to find out but rest assured that he would have more flexibility in a second term.

You’re right. The empty binder was his agenda to make things better in America. He’s clearly on a path to make things worse.

I like them thinking this is the most important thing he’s got to do on Monday night. Knowing more details of the kind of crap he want will only pull more undecideds to our side.

“Windmills...solar...biodiesel!” “Fair share!” Yeah, that’ll do it....

Obama already HAS an agenda, just that it is written in disappearing ink, and shimmers into existence only when nobody is looking, to vanish just as suddenly when sharp scrutiny is turned upon it.

But we have glimpsed enough so that is general outlines are well distinguished in our memories, and the “Danger” or “Caution” flags may be placed around the definitely troublesome issues with some assurance (or trepidation, depending on your point of view).

Empty chair meet empty suit. All he has to do is claim that his “pension” is smaller than Romney’s. That is all that is required of Obamao.

I suspect that 0bama’s plans are much more sinister than anyone might imagine! Certainly they would not be anything he would want known.

Obama could legitimately blame the previous adminstration for screwing up everything.

OblaMao’s 5 point plan.

1. Tax the rich (making over 200/k)
2. Keep gas prices high, push green.
3. Weaken the military and cut their spending.
4. Raise the debt ceiling to even higher trillions.
5. Payback all his cronies, pervs and feminists.

Good luck with that. A second term is the same as the first, but on steroids. It is that simple.

Here’s the G-d’s honest truth. ‘Stimulous’ was Obama’s agenda to grow the economy. Once that was passed he went on to screw us with Obama Care. To this day, he’s sitting around waiting for ‘stimulous’ to kick in.

Obama’s intellectual abilities don’t rise that much beyond those of two college sophomores sitting around shooting the poop about politics and acting like they know something because there is no one there to disagree with them. Didn’t we all do this sort of thing ‘back in the day’?

The ‘trouble is’ Obama isn’t ‘back in the day.’ He’s in the Oval Office and when they bring him ledgers, present him with things like ‘GDP as a function of imports’, and show charts with titles like ‘growth vs debt and how it relates to unemployment’ I am absolutely sure his eyes roll in his head and he escapes to the golf course faster than a pre-med changes his major to physical education. And this ‘raising taxes on the rich’ is good grist for the grill but, what does it really accomplish in terms of helping this country? NOTHING!!! It’s not an agenda. It’s an attack.

And, that’s what Obama is really about. Attacking people. He especially hates successful people but, he reseves his greatest hate for successful republicans. He’s Johnny Cochran as President. Working with the GOP to him would be like G-d working with the devil. It ain’t gonna happen no matter how much he prattles on about reaching across the aisle. We all sw his true colors when he invited Ryan to his speech on Medicare Reform and then proceeded to insult him for one full hour...while offering no idea of his own.

Obama is never gonna work with his political opponents, period. He doesn’t have the temperament or the humility. In other words, he shouldn’t be President. Mitt Romney should be President. Go vote and tell your friends.
