Why Obama won't run for a second term
Great American Journal ^ | circa July 19, 2010

Posted on 07/22/2010 5:30:02 AM PDT by upchuck

Obama has no intention of running for a second term. He already knows that he wouldn’t stand a chance of winning reelection without massive voter fraud. He will be replaced as the Democratic candidate by Hillary Clinton. Should she win, she will be just like Obama. They both belong to the same Marxist Progressive club. Ms. Clinton has already begun her campaign, though by stealth so far.

Obama doesn't want the job of president, he just likes the feeling of power and the perks. That is why he has over 35 czars to do all of the work while he is out campaigning, partying, vacationing, and golfing. He knows he is destroying the country, for that is his assigned task by the Progressive leadership.

Obama is a career drifter. Four years in one job is almost more than he can stand. He has never stayed in one job for more than two years. He left the Illinois Senate after two years to campaign for the U.S. Senate. He left the U.S. Senate after just 18 months to start campaigning for president. He can't stand being in the White House for more than a couple of days at a time before he's off for a $200,000 plane ride at taxpayers' expense.

He knows he will be thrown overboard as soon as he completes his assigned task of turning the country up-side-down with socialism. That is his primary mission. No question about it, that is why he was selected and groomed for the presidency by the people he really works for. His oath of office was a lie, clear and simple. No wonder Justice Roberts fumbled it. He must have known.

Obama outraged the nation by ordering the Justice Dept. to drop charges against the New Black Panthers, then had the department commit to not prosecute any blacks on voter intimidation charges.

Obama has launched a deliberate attack on the oil industry in his attempt to destroy it, while at the same time, is stabbing Americans in the back with his lawsuit against Arizona.

Obama has taken over private businesses and industries, forced an unwanted government healthcare system on us, destroyed jobs, and intentionally made it nearly impossible for businesses to grow or even stay in business with his taxes and other policies that interfere with the running of a business.

Need I say more? Obama has done everything he can possibly do against the will of the American people. It doesn’t matter to him that his poll numbers are sinking like the Deepwater Horizon into an oily abyss. What matters is that he has the power now and will use it to push the Marxist agenda as far as he can before he too is thrown under the bus.

He has no intention of running for reelection. He has said it himself: he would rather be a one term president and get things done, than be a two term president with no accomplishments. The policies and laws he is putting into place now will last long after he is gone. He, Pelosi, Reid, and their liberal allies in Congress have made sure of that. The Congress we elect in November better have enough backbone to stand up to the Progressive Communists in our government and start the repeal process immediately.

"16 years ago 1994 the Clinton Presidency was reported to be dead by Republicans, who then got beat by him in 1996 after Clinton shut down the government and successfully blamed Republicans."

Yep. And don't forget, by the summer of 1996, unemployment was approaching 5.40%, which is almost two full points lower than it was when Clinton took office. By that time, his approvals had substantively rebounded because the economy was really starting to heat up and we were approaching full employment.

Obama will have a different set of circumstances - a much worse set of circumstances - but I think there's nothing to keep him from running for a second term and nothing to keep him from gaining the Dem nomination. It's virtually impossible to lose the Dem nomination with 95% black support, and 75%+ Latino support - they're just too big to overcome for a challengers.

Why wouldn’t he want to be a one-term president? He’s already gotten most of what he wants. He finishes his term and then he can collect a check for the rest of his life. Secret Service detail and staff protecting him day and night. He can then spend his ‘retirement’ doing that which he enjoys most, campaigning. He’ll jump on the lecture circuit making a couple million an appearance, writing more books. Sickening.

I’m not convinced Hillary would win should she run.

She’s a boring speaker, and I think the American people, after the Obama fiasco, are fed up with electing ‘firsts’.

It would be a huge mistake to underestimate his quest for power, now and in the future.

” The RINOs would rather destroy the party than lose their grip on power. Like the democrats they like socialism, they just want to be the ones getting the perks. “

Rep Boner is on Fox News right now, agreeing with the Obama administration that the Republican party lost its way. That should help us big time in November. He also offered no solutions, and he looks like he drank a whole bottle of scotch last night.

Sorry I disagree, if Ø senses he won’t/can’t win he’ll bail ‘cuz his narcissistic ego won’t let him. Can you see him going to rallies that are half-empty, with people possibly booing him, no more rock star staus, glowing admiration....not gonna happen.

I think Hillary will replace Biden as the VP in 2012. Biden could become Sec. of State. If Hillary does run I think they would be tough to beat.

Good points. I am certainly not predicting that he will win. It is just that Republicans will not have as easy of a time as they did this year. This year Democrats were down to a strategy of blaming minority Republicans and characterize them by statements from a few nobodies. They are fighting a losing battle.

But next year republicans will have a Presidential primary that could get ugly, and Obama will hand congress the unpopular deficit commission recommendations, and the economy should improve some maybe. As I said from the beginning, Republicans need to make Obama own all the bad news to win like they did with Bush.

Reagan was the only POTUS who was a true-blue hater of big government and true conservative in the 20th century other than Cool Cal Coolidge. Even so, it was easier for Reagan to win the cold war and dismantle the U.S.S.R. than downsize the U.S. Federal government bureaucratic monstrosity.

Even if the GOP had had both houses, Reagan wold still have had great difficulty cutting government. Some of Reagan's greatest opposition came from his own party. The GOP is the caboose on the same long political train as the DemocRat engine that pulls it - its just a matter of time before the GOP passes the same way as the Leftists.

Starting to think maybe the best thing that can happen in Election this year is a 50/50 tie in both houses.

Gridlock. Gridlock. Gridlock. I kind of wish for a perpetual gridlock. But then again, the stupid party will compromise with the evil party to create more monstrosities.

Not only that, but when the primary names being floated right now as potential Republican nominees are Romney, Huckabee, Palin, and Gingrich, I don’t see why he has any reason not to be confident. Even if the economy does not rebound, I don’t think he’ll have a huge amount of trouble beating any one of those four.

Just the other day I pointed out those four in that exact order and commented :”....Romney, Huckabee, Palin, and Gingrich the thought makes me sick...” Did you get that from me ? :)

It's not just can they win but it's also thought of waking up in a year with one of them as president. I knew if McCain got elected I would be miserable for four years. At least with Obama it is OK to condemn spending, debt, unemployment, bailouts, amnesty...If Mccain was president we'd be told we have to defend those things, again. With Obama I can march against those things, with McCain what would the options be?

Palin got McCain this far. If McCain wins, he will push H A R D for amnesty, will co opt Snowe, Collins and Homo, and might pull it off, short of a civil war.

It's virtually impossible, but not impossible. Obama has lost the Democrat elites -- the people that finance democrat candidates. No money, no independent voters, no re-election. That's where I see this going.
