Ten Indications That Obama Is Scared
American Thinker ^ | 03/01/2012 | Kevin Jackson

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:30:34 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Obama is not the cool, calm, and collected guy that he portrays publicly; he's far from it. Obama is described privately as a thin-skinned hot-head when it comes to questioning his policies, or anything else, for that matter.

Though there has been a slight shift upward in Obama's poll numbers, Obama knows the real temperature of the American people. Here are 10 indicators as to why Obama will have sleepless nights leading up to the election of 2012:

1. Obama started African Americans for Obama. When blacks supposedly voted at 95 percent for Obama in the last election, one has to question his motives in starting this group. The answer is that Obama's poll numbers among blacks have fallen back to their lowest point, a clear sign that Obama is feeling the pressure. If Obama loses his street cred amongst blacks, he will likely be abandoned by other groups. Obama must have the "race" element in 2012, even though the black vote will be much less significant in 2012. By the way, how would the media have covered "White Americans for McCain?"

The ten reasons are shown below.

NOTE: Due to 300 word limitation, I only posted the highlights. CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE DETAILED EXPLANATION.

1. Obama started African Americans for Obama.

2. Obama started a Spanish-language website.

3. Obama's energy policy is pure comedy. When Obama took office, gasoline averaged $1.89. Gasoline is now at its highest point in history, averaging $3.65 a gallon -- and it's getting higher.

4. Obama now supports super-PACs. Aside from the multitude of flip-flops or blatant "untruths," Obama has now decided that for the good of the country, he must embrace the idea of "buying his next election."

5. Obama has feigned shifting right. When a bona fide socialist begins talk of shifting right, you know he's panicked.

6. Obama began the Truth Teams, dismantling Attack Watch. Renaming Attack Watch is like renaming the Department of War the Defense Department. Attack Watch was a dismal failure, because the truth is not an attack.

7. Obama is changing his slogan. Realizing that "Yes We Can" has turned into "Well, I Thought We Could," and that "hope and change" now applies to getting rid of him, Obama must adjust his catchphrases.

8. Obama's foreign policy strategy is in shambles. Generally when a president has such a weak domestic agenda, he may be able to recover based on decent foreign policy.

9. Obama is talking tough. As the saying goes, the shallower the stream, the louder the babble.

10. There is no real improvement in any sector in America. Obama's biggest problem is that the economy is being held together with paperclips and Band-Aids.

Obama isn’t scared, he’s slightly concerned because 2012 won’t be as easy as 2008, but Obama will prevail because:

1. The MSM is nothing but an Obama propaganda outlet.

2. In general, Americans are unconcerned and inattentive. Most importantly, the public’s opinion seems to be given to them by the MSM.

3. The black vote. 95%+ no matter what. Just ask Samuel L. Jackson, and no, according to liberals, it’s not racist.

4. The right is so severely split, there will be no groundswell support for any candidate.

There you have it. Obama wins, plan accordingly.

Mr. Obama and his obnoxious Progressives have no need to fear.

More than fifty percent of the population is in his camp and the Progressive fifth column has been in the city for a long, long time.

It’s a horrible thing to think your president and government is capable of things like this and to fear and distrust them. I’m thinking it’s time to head for greener pastures for a while.

Did Breitbart die of natural causes? Do we yet know an actual cause of death besides generic “natural causes”?

The implications here are horrifying, if somehow Breitbart was a victim of foul play due to his making liberals angry.

That's the most succinctly I've ever seen it put! Your points could be farther distilled to yield L.A.R.D.
  1. Lies
  2. Apathy
  3. Racism
  4. Division

Disagree with your # 4 that the right is so severely split it will allow Obama to win. We are in a primary, not a general election and my many friends who follow this (we have a sort of informal “club” consisting of about 15 of us who meat semi regularly simply to hear the view points of the others.

Within this group there are supporters of Gingrich, Santorum, Romney and Paul (just 1). Earlier on there was support for Cain. The consensus is that despite who they back at this time each and everyone of them has agreed they will vote for whomever the candidate winds up being.

They like myself believe the process in reversing the downward spiral of this country begins with getting rid of Obama, PERIOD!! I wouldn't care if the rep put up a rusty spittoon, I would vote for it and then work to keep it's feet to the fire and do what is right.

Recall if you will what happened when the illegal immigrant amnesty plan was cooking in the Congress under Bush and the clamor AGAINST it caused the phone lines into the Capitol to literally melt down so strong was the outrage against this amnesty. The same thing can be done even if the nominee is less then the perfect Conservative we would like.

Anybody but Obama must be the message we spread far and wide because I believe it is true that ANYBODY can do a far, far better job then Obama and with the coat tail effect of a Rep win we can easily enough take the Senate and dump Reid. After that we can use the lib playbook to pass laws which are necessary and repeal executive orders passed by Obama by issuing another exec order.

It is absolutely imperative that whomever is our candidate is fully supported by all of us.

Obama getting 95% of the 13% black vote is not a big deal. It should have been more.
it's only 7% more of the 11% black vote than Kerry got in 2004.

This is what scares me the most. I associate with nominally well-to-do people who seem to be as clueless about what Obama is doing as is a zoo animal. Their main concern seems to be correcting their damn slice. It will be an uphill battle that may end in CWII.

“It is absolutely imperative that whomever is our candidate is fully supported by all of us.”

Nothing would make me happier than to be wrong. I am in that camp, and have posted, I would vote for a pet rock over Obama. It really is that serious. A second Obama term will cause irreversible damage to America.

I remember in ‘08, all the freepers saying they wouldn’t vote if McCain was nominated. They came here after Obama won, and admitted they held firm, didn’t vote.

Now, it’s even more common to see someone post that they support XXX and if YYY is nominated, they will not vote, and don’t care if Obama wins as a result, they need to “send a message”.

I hope I’m wrong about Obama winning, but sadly, I don’t think I am.

For a newbie, you make good points. I have preached this message for the last year. Don’t let Bo and his corrupt old media hacks split his opposition. There are no less than one million potential candidates who are Bo’s superior in most areas. As I have stated on numerous occasions: Please refrain from attacking anyone but the marxist pig in the white house. He is the enemy of every free man on the planet. He is the hater of the American Way. He is the usurper, the tyrant, the jug-eared chicago goon that has no right to occupy the white house. He is public enemy #1, not these candidates. Even Romney is a magnitude superior to the second rising of hussein.

RE: Obama’s lies and the Catholic vote.

Obama really did insult the leadership of the American Catholic Church. Do not dismiss this as insignificant. Do I think that Catholics who are liberal and Democrats will switch to the GOP? Not likely. They are mostly Catholics in name only. However, the majority of Catholics who are now independents are aware of Obama’s disrespect for all persons with religious consciences. So, I do think this this will be a factor in the fall election. If it changes the votes of only 2-3% of the general population (including Catholics, and others) it will seriously hinder his reelection.

So, add it to your list of Obama’s weaknesses.

I stand by my statement above.

I have to agree with you, but;
Agreeing with the need to support Romney when the time comes does not deny the other points made here.
Obama still has the MSM, black voters, "progressives", the 49% who don't pay taxes, and union's/government employees on his side. That's a hefty list that remains mostly intact despite any dissatisfaction.
And, uniting to support Mittens would be a lot easier if it weren't so clear that the republican party, the media, just about everyone who ever served in either Bush administration, Ann Colter and Rick Santorum's debate coach, was busily shoving him up our throats.

“Oh by the way why don’t you spend more time stopping the rat machine corruption instead of whining about it? “

Ok, let me give you a clue, since you seem to need it. First, we’re on the same side, and our exchange is a microcosm of the problem I see with the current state of the GOP.

Second, and more important, my observations have purpose beyond simply complaining. The more concrete, the more real and reasoned an Obama re-election is made to appear, maybe some of those freepers who will stay home if whoever is nominated will reconsider. This is not a game, and staying home will have a cost that is way too high.

As for not supporting rats, google is the only place I falter. I need to work on that one.

The way he’s running—I believe he might just try to cancel the election and rule by decree. He has been replacing generals, he has been setting up camps for protesters. With the Union, Wall Street, MSM on his side—he just might pull it off. Cancel the election due to some “crisis” that he manufactures. War with Iran? Terrorists Attack? Nuke goes off and he’s president for the next 4 years. I would put nothing past him.
