In a second term, Mitt Romney darkly warned in a speech to the National Rifle Association last month, President Obama would be unrestrained by the demands of reelection.
But Romney was cagey about what, exactly, that would mean: His only specific prediction was that Obama would remake the Supreme Court. So it was helpful when, at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner a week ago, the president opened up about the secret agenda he has planned. In my first term, he joked, we ended the war in Iraq; in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas. . . . In my first term, we passed health-care reform; in my second term, I guess Ill pass it again.
In other speeches, Obama has offered a more serious preview of what hed like to get done if hes reelected. On March 30, he listed second-term priorities including reforming the immigration system; remaking the nations energy policy so it addresses the long-term challenges. . . . of energy independence and climate change; doing more to ensure that people who dont have work can find work and that our housing system is working for everybody; pushing forward on education reform; and executing an effective transition out of Afghanistan.
But thats not really a list of what Obama would do in his second term. Its a list of what he would like to do.

If your concience leads you to that conclusion, than use your intelligence, seek good guidance, and do what you need to do. I don’t condemn you for reaching a different conclusion that I do.

Here’s my dilemma.
If Romney is but Obama lite and he clearly is, and if Romney has the presidency and add to that his GOPE kingmakers behind him to push the very same things they objected to and stopped without a single vote, but will eagerly pass under Romney, then what have I prevented?
The GOPE purposely killed the Republican Party this year. They are expecting us to support that killing, by working us over with another force feed, of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”— certain that we will swallow whatever they dish up. We always have before, and we will again, and we always will, until we STOP.
It will not be of the Lord’s doing, but of the people’s. Thinking Sodom and Gomorrah here, the creation and worshipping of Baal, and the possible results that would go along with it for years of punishment and depravity until we are ready to come back.
I’m sure all those who insist that a candidate be a perfect conservative before getting their vote, have spouses that look just like Marilyn Monroe or Cary Grant (or the modern day equivalent of them). Of course, they are themselves perfect in every way. They also have the perfect car, perfect house, perfect children, and the perfect job.
They care for nothing or no one but themselves and their bubble of perfection.
I DID vote for Newt.

If you study much of human history, every movement or school meets its end when zealots attempt to control its ideological purity.
My conscience is clear. I've been warning you, and many others, for a very long time about what was happening in the Republican Party.
But don't kid yourself, the catastrophe is already upon you. And it has little to do with Barack Obama. It's the fruit of the compromise of a whole generation of Americans...including, and perhaps especially, a whole generation of Americans who call themselves "conservative."
What a load of nonsense. As if what we were suffering was a surplus of ideological purity. Ridiculous.
Virtually our entire political class is completely compromised and you all attack those who simply demand adherence to the simple moral basis of the oath of office.
“A nation of sheep begets a govt of wolves.”
I din’t vote for Romney in the primary and wish he wasn’t going to be the nominee. My vote in the general will be entirely anti-Obama.
You know, you've always been very nice to me, and very restrained in your posts.
So, it pains me to say this, it truly does, but if that means you're voting Romney, those are weasel words, just like "I'm voting for Sarah" was four years ago.
No, the votes go to the person running for the office. John Judas McCain. Mitt Romney. There were no presidential votes tallied for Sarah Palin in 2008 and there will be none counted as "Not Obama" in 2012.
Own it, man.
I like my tagline better.
It’s a sad day when your tagline fits the likely Republican nominee and the Democrat nominee alike.
