Obama's Loss: Inevitable for Years
American Thinker ^ | 11/1/12 | C. Edmund Wright

Posted on 11/01/2012 3:12:04 AM PDT by Evil Slayer

Do not be seduced by the disproportionate emphasis on recent events with regard to Barack Obama's pending landslide loss. I submit that a more sober analysis indicates that November 2012 has been inevitable for at least four years. In some ways, it's been inevitable for even longer than that.

You see, Barack Obama and his statist agenda have failed because they could not possibly succeed. In a way, electing Obama was liberal America's dash off a cliff -- and the 2012 election is merely the day they officially make contact with the ground. There has been no other outcome possible. The pundits and the pollsters can argue political gravity all they want -- and they certainly have for the majority of the past four years -- but truth does not require validation from those who refuse to acknowledge it. Truth is...period. The next thud you hear will be the unhappy realization of this fact from many on the left. Their philosophy works only in theory and never passes the reality of human nature.

Obama has been like Wile E. Coyote in animation -- sort of running in place, with no foundation underneath him since his '08 campaign. Only the David Axelrod cartoon world of astroturfed events and issues, supported by a fawning media, has kept him suspended this long. The crash will happen because it has to happen.

Why? Consider:

Everything Obama and his cohorts in the media, academia, union halls, Congress, and the crony capitalist world believe in is fraudulent. There was never going to be any economic recovery on their watch because they haven't the foggiest how an economy works. There was never going to be any newfound love of America overseas because they have no clue what it is about America that has made us the shining

Landslide predictions come hot and heavy when polls change...

...where were such prognostications when the polls apparently chiseled Obama’s reelection in stone?

I think there were. From early summer and before, it was just that any and every suggestion about Romney winning were immediately guffawed and ridiculed by every member of the press and media.

They were confident in their collusion and knew the FIRST reaction to any suggestion of the contrary is to slam down hard. Quell dissent completely.

This fell apart after the first debate. They cannot hold back the tide now. They don’t have enough digits and appendages to stick in the dike now.

If you go back over the last four years and review Obama's public favorability numbers on a week-by-week basis, you'll find that his approval ratings declined dramatically around July 2009 and have never really recovered. You can trace his decline to the exact week when that Henry Louis Gates incident took place, and Obama responded by claiming that "the cops acted stupidly."

I said at the time that his presidency was effectively over, because he revealed something that everyone in his campaign and the mainstream media had tried to shield from public view ... that he's nothing more than a surly, black malcontent with a teleprompter and an expensive suit.

White people have been voting against him and his ilk in this country ever since.

I hope you’re correct in your prediction. As I still cannot believe that we elected Obama in the first place, I’m hopeful but won’t be shocked to wake up Nov. 7 to learn he’s won a 2nd term.

But if you are right, what do you think the excuses will be, besides racism? And Bush.

Obama’s election was the “moment” they’d been waiting for. They had control of the Executive branch, congress, public schools & academia, media, entertainment, unions, progressives in prominent positions inside big business and internet outlets....

Everything was in place for them to succeed in socialism and the remaking of America, where all others before them had failed, because the right people presumably hadn’t been in power before. They were going to show us and the world how smart they were and that it would work brilliantly under their tutelage. “Yes, we can.”

If Obama does lose, the radical left will still control a lot but four years ago nearly all of it was theirs. We know they’ll be back and keep trying, but I wonder what their excuses for why Socialism was rejected/didn’t work this time will be.

The excuses? Off top of my head:
A lot depends on where senate ends up, and I think the GOP will have the majority with 53-54 seats. So:

First there will be denial. And anger. Charges of racism and fraud will be prevalent.

Then there will be a rush by some hard core liberals to blame Obama personally so as to excuse liberalism per se.

And there will be a counter charge from the personality cult of Obama that the media and other liberals let their guy down.

It will manifest in their insistence that all of this is still the fault of 8 years of Bush Cheney - and that we must not go back to “the failed policies of the past.” Obama Care will also be “re litigated” to use an Obama term.

Just some quickie thoughts there...

And as Mark Levin has said, we will have to “deal with all of that later” - and we will.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Getting conservative control over education will lead to eventual control over every other aspect of the culture. Sure it's a long term strategy, hard, and messy but unless we shut down the indoctrination camps we will be constantly spinning our wheels with regard to the rest of the culture.

No!....Public schools can not be reformed. It is impossible to reform socialism. Simply by attending these socialist-funded and single payer indoctrination camps child learn to be comfortable with socialism. We must SHUT THEM DOWN!

How?

Answer: Vouchers, charters, tax credits, and homeschooling will build a private infrastructure and then eventually moving to complete privatization and separation of school and state.

The wave won't be broken until we focus on the culture. Nickname, in his post #15, pointed out that collectivists in our nation control” public schools & academia, media, entertainment, unions, progressives in prominent positions inside big business and internet outlets....”

While short term political strategies are absolutely essential in the political fight against collectivism, I am often perplexed that so many conservatives fail to see that without influencing the culture in a major way we are likely to lose in the long term.

Schooling must be a major focus of long term strategy. We must shut down the government schools, find alternatives to the communist controlled universities, get as many kids out of the higher education racket as possible and work to see that every child in this nation has access to an education that upholds Judeo/Christian belief and our nation's founding principles.

“Then there will be a rush by some hard core liberals to blame Obama personally so as to excuse liberalism per se.”

Thanks. This one sticks out to me because I’ve always thought of the Clinton wing of the Democrats as being more “incrementalist” in their methods, compared to Obama who’s rammed as much through as fast as he possibly could.

If Obama receives personal blame by his party, I can see it being along those lines. Too much too fast.

While the goals remain the same, it’s easier to maintain the illusion of moderation as the Clintons have done, and avoid wholesale rejection, when Socialism is instituted in little steps.

And I really hope you’re right about the Senate!

Excellent piece, C. Edmund!

The author has been predicting landslide for some time. Others on this forum have been also. I think they’re right.

If they are right, then this will be a significant emotional event for liberals. Perhaps an historical event, if we play our cards right.

So let’s get on to how we can KEEP THEM DOWN, once they’re done licking their wounds.

The left must rationalize their defeat. They must not allow the REASON for their defeat to reflect on liberalism itself. The CANDIDATE must be blamed. Or the CAMPAIGN. Not the policies.

We have an opportunity here to deal a lethal blow to the establishment media, and liberalism itself. The Democratic Party, if we play our cards right, shouldn’t survive what’s going to hit them smack in the face on Nov 6.

We must seize the moral high ground-it’s there for the taking. Liberalism has proven to be IMMORAL. We must say with pride that we are conservatives BECAUSE we care about the poor and the downtrodden. This is a teaching moment. We cannot allow them to blame their defeat on anything but the fact that their ideology is WRONG.

Liberalism has proven to be IMMORAL. And that’s just the fiscal policy.

It should be easy to prove that liberalism cares only about POWER. We now have a history to observe, Barack Obama’s presidency is a GIFT to conservative thought. The paradigm CAN change. We cannot let them blame it on anything but the WAY THEY THINK. Not Obama, not Reid and Pelosi, IT’S THE IDEOLOGY STUPID.

Schadenfraude is ok, but ridicule would be better. We give them no quarter, we call a spade a spade, especially at the water cooler at work. Especially at the neighborhood bar. Ostracism is good too. They need to feel our disdain for them.

They tried to turn us into CUBA.

This is the time to pull the weeds out by the roots. Romney’s not going to do it. We have to do it.

Liberalism has proven to be IMMORAL. In four short years.

Ann Coulter has given us a start. We must know our history as relates to race relations. We have a lot to be proud of, and proud we must be. The moral high ground is there for us to seize.

A battle will have been won Nov 6. The war can be won. Don’t let them blame it on anything but the fact that their policies harm the poor and expose us to danger. We must make the MORAL CASE for capitalism, and the moral case for American exceptionalism.

We’re all Paul Ryan now.

A victory by Romney will be a temporary respite from the Marxism washing over this country and its institutions. The democrat party must be declared a seditionist organization and its leadership charged with treason.

We need to dust off the Reconstruction laws and declare states like California in insurrection. Then appoint a military governor and clean out the fascists and communists.

We have another civil war brewing on the back of stove, and unless we uproot and destroy the leftist rat party, that pot will boil over one day and destroy the country.

And yes, I’m cynical.

The current state of our colleges and our Universities have only one difference from the Muslim Madrassas...the age of the students.

American ‘higher education’ is no more than indoctrination.

Rush is right—skulls full of mush that have spent their youth on X-boxes & MTV. They are clueless & they are easy targets for the ‘professors’ who get them for 4 years or so.

That system must be replaced.

Look hard at everyone you know who is under age 45 or so. They are overwhelmingly lazy—willing to pay anyone else to do any kind of work for them which they could easily do themselves. They don’t think thru a situation and are not really to be depended upon in a crisis.

Then compare them with the 50-60-70-80 year old’s you know, who were taught to do for themselves and to not expect a job-food-shelter except on their own efforts.

Welfare was intended to be a help temporarily for those who needed it. It has become a total life style and instead of being grateful, the succeeding generations have decided ‘it is owed to them’.

They are experts at riding in the wagon, but they never consider pulling the wagon.

When you realize that the amount of $$$ spent in 2011 on Welfare & associated programs would equal giving every ‘poor’ household a check for over $56,000, then it really hits home. I know many people living on less than $18,000 a year & ‘poor’ people are getting the equivilant of $56,000???

That just plain pisses me off. I have worked since I was 15 for a paycheck. I am not the only one who is pissed, either.

It all has to end. Nov 6th cannot come soon enough.

You are right about public schools. However, all is not lost. Had dinner with my 26-yr old daughter two nights ago and got into a discussion about the election. She and her friends see what has gone terribly wrong with our country since BO. Despite Sandra Fluk (sp?), the creepy “first time” commercial and the war on women, many of these kids see this election as an economic one. They instinctively know. There is still hope.

I was predicting a 55% / 45% Romney win back in August when the numbers were almost reversed.

Modern American Presidential Politics are ruled by one question:

“Do I want more of this?”

From FDR through 0bama, every single Presidential election has been a reflection on the guy who was in office the last four years.

Americans DO NOT WANT 4 MORE YEARS OF THIS CR*P!!!!

Thanks for comments. Keep in mind, this is a thousand word column. It does not represent the totality of my thinking on what our culture needs.

AMEN! Without dealing with this, any victories we achieve this year will be fleeting. The Marxist government education machine is what makes the Barak Obamas of the world possible.

That's a bit fractionated when in real terms, one can already plot the media map for next week -- because believe me, MSM producers are already doing so if they want to keep their job. Guests take time.

I posted this on another thread but it's applicable here:

Bobo's apologists will be out in force next Wed. to explain his loss thusly: 'We did better than anyone said we would with this strategy (screw white people), because seriously guys, have you seen this economy? It's a wreck!'

And then the day after that on Thursday, the Clintonites will be out in force to reclaim the Democrat Party and how they will 'fix' the brand. And you'll never hear from Axelrot or Ploofter or JarJarrett in the MSM again.

Great article. From your lips to God's ear.

My only comment is that I perceive possibly an underestimation of the ignorance of today's voting electorate (see Exhibit A: 2012 GOP primary). As close as this race still is, he could have been easily re-elected. Your inevitability point is spot on with whether he would succeed or not, but he might have still been re-elected, in spite of his (and socialism) being a total loser.

I think of two events (not so recent) as being significantly "causal" - 1) excommunicated HHS sec Sebelius' fiat requiring religious insitutions to fund abortion, contraception and sterilizations; and 2) the performance of candidate 0bama in the first debate.

Without these events, I shudder to think of what the results might have been from this government-school 'educated' electorate.

Obama has been like Wile E. Coyote in animation -- running in place, with no foundation underneath him since '08 . Only the David Axelrod cartoon world of astroturfed events and issues, supported by a fawning media, has kept him suspended this long.

2008 Candidate Barack Obama told us on the campaign trail: " The problem is, that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents, # 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome so that now we have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic."

REALITY CHECK Obama presided over the biggest political heist in US history. The Obamanations (insiders and politicians) sucked up trillions under the guise of inheriting the "Bush financial crisis."

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD Obama COS Rahm Emanuel "suddenly" discovered he wanted to be Chicago's mayor---the little turn went before the mics and announced his campaign "raised $10 million in just a few weeks." Rahm also controlled the US Treasury as COS.

2012 TEAM OHAHA IN CHICAGO MODE---MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD AHEAD

Remember, voter fraud is the Chi/mobs' specialty---do NOT underestimate Rahm and Axelrod (both running O's reelection), and Valerie whatsherface in the WH.

Let us not forget----the minute they hit the WH, the Chi/mob went into action: the WH Chi/mob took over the census---and now have all the CV they need to file phony FEC reports using stolen federal dollars falsified as campaign contributions.

Do not underestimate the wealth of cash the Ohahas/Chi-mob can come up with to rig the election......remember, these are the kingpins of corrupt Chicago politics. At one time, conscientious FEC investigators verified money was coming from legal citizens....but if Obama wins there will be no investigations.

There are billions unaccounted for in Obama's "stimulus" packages (some used in the last election cycle).....the Ohaha kingpins have tons of money stashed away for 2012.

==================================================

POINTS TO PONDER

<><> author Dean Koontz estimates there's about $90 billion missing from the US Treasury.

<><> Ohaha's ex-COS Chi/Mayor Rahm Emanuel is running the reelection campaign---this Wall Street turd knows where all the money is hidden. Rahm also controlled all US Treasury assets (at Obama's behest) when he was COS.

=======================================

WATCH FOR PHONY FEC REPORTS from "Obama for America" and two other DNC-joint fundraising committees — the "Obama Victory Fund" and the "Swing State Victory Fund,"......and whatever other voter frauds they dream up.

=========================================

2012 Team Ohaha is using the 2008 Anita (Mao) Dunn strategy to manipulate voters, to downplay Ohaha's destructive policies ....and his scary plans for the next term. Dunn said later, THEY, and only THEY, decided what the media should know about 2008 candidate Ohaha. In the 2nd debate, Ohaha seemed to come "alive"----compared to sleep-walking through number one. Team O had the bright idea to get Anita "Mao" Dunn to prep him---even paraded her on the WH lawn like she was a trophy wife.

Ohaha stupidly took Mao-Dunn's advice and answered every townhall question with "Mitt Romney said."

Team O flopped again---Ohaha never got the bounce he needed.......as Romney surged to new heights.

================================================

Team O has got to be the dumbest campaign team in history---they still don't "get it." Whenever the sinister Chi/mobsters David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett appear on our TV screens, Ohaha loses several thousand votes.

They sink further when Michele Obama and Robert Gibbs are out there fronting for Ohoho.

But the dumbest trick is sending out serial fornicator Sandra Fluck as a surrogate. Most of us doubt whether this swinger needs free contraception.......what with her obvious sexual orientation

You won’t read a more cogent analysis than this article. I’m having it laminated.

High praise indeed! Senator Au H2O is an impeccably conservative voice!

mark o’malley excerpt: Every campaign, of course, believes it’s going to win. Obama’s team, however, conveys such a visceral sense of self-confidence that even protestations to the contrary take on air of comically profane absurdity. . .

“They didn’t give people anything to grab on to, and they allowed us to define him before he could define himself,” Axelrod says of Romney. “And now they are playing catch-up. And now they are running bio ads. The summer is when candidates and races get defined. That’s why we made a strategic decision that it was better to muscle up in the summer. I can’t think of a presidential race determined by paid media after Labor Day.”

That’s Axelrod’s understated way of saying—feet-up-on-the-desk protestations notwithstanding—that he thinks the election is already over. . .“Those guys over there love to talk about 1980, which I think is delusional for a whole range of reasons,” Axelrod said. “Obama is not Carter, and Romney is not Reagan.” But this is the sentence that will end Axelrod’s career as a leading political sage: “They have this fantasy that the debates will come and the dam will break like it did in 1980,” Axelrod said. “I think they are delusional.”

And here’s the Benghazi coda: In Chicago, talk of unexpected events toppling Obama’s path to reelection are largely cursory. This nonchalance, by the way, is said to perturb the Windy City’s mayor, and former Obama chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, who frequently warns that the president’s popularity is “defying gravity” and that the campaign must ward against its tendency toward all-knowing arrogance. Rahm ought to know.
