Alarm Grows Among Dems About Obama’s Chances
Fox News ^ | 5/15/2012 | Chris Stirewalt

Posted on 05/15/2012 7:54:18 AM PDT by tobyhill

“You can be stylish and powerful, too. That's Michelle’s advice.”

-- President Obama telling graduates to temper but preserve their interest in clothing during his commencement address at Barnard College, a women-only college of New York’s Columbia University.

It has taken months of bad news, but Democrats increasingly believe that President Obama might just lose his re-election bid.

The latest wake-up call comes in the form of a New York Times/CBS poll showing Republican Mitt Romney in the lead not just among registered voters overall, but with women and independents.

What you say is likely true. However, his administration is already taking steps to remedy this inopportune oversight. He’ll simply do some background extortion, bribing, coersion, etc. and these pesky poll pecadillos will disappear - much like the troublesome high unemployment numbers. Never underestimate what this lawless administration is capable of.

Let’s kick the crap out of them when they’re down, shall we?

Gloat-ohmeter for a day or do, lets kick them on policy in the Arena of Ideas, and on the floor of the House and Senate, I think the victory will speak for itself, no need being a bully In fact Obama will be the bully after he looses for 3 months, that won't be pretty behavior....

After we replace Boehner and McConnell as the leadership :-)...

I suspect that the ‘stain on the blue’ dress will draw a few chuckles from the future generations, but the Obama stain will still produce ever-present shudders. It was an extremely cowardly thing to have elected him on the basis of his color.


That the first black president is of the absolute lowest caliber is a disgrace and travesty. They dredged the bottom of the sewer to come up with this putrid piece of human waste.

Shame and guilt are mighty powerful emotions. The dems played 2008 like a Stradivarius. Then abused America like a rented mule or maybe more like a muslim’s goat.


That’s damned good!

I’m very much afraid of a do-nothing majority.

The house is on fire, so we need to take bold decisive action, like,Odumbo did with Odumbocare.

The congress should begin immediately by eliminating Energy and Education. The media will scream bloody murder. After a year, the people will realize that nothing happened, and that the media was full of it.

The media will have been neutralized. We can then move on to entitlement reform.

"And you can be [sure] this Fall that they will pull out all the stops to make the Market go through the roof."

How? A stimulus program? Yeah, that worked so well the first time. Lower interest rates - they can't get much lower. Market manipulation - well no doubt Soros will be trying, but even he has limited money.

Perhaps that’s why Europe feels they can go socialist again...they think America goes very conservative in Novenmber and revereses its massive spending...freeing up world resources so that Europe can have cradle to grave socialism again and have its US maintained nuclear umbrella again.

Obama’s pledge to get our nuclear stock pile down to 300 nukes would have left our erst while allies without any credible deterence unless they were willing to spend more for their own defence.

The world needs a stable US and a stable dollar, there just isn’t any other credible plan out there that can keep world economics afloat. Multi-polar monetary policies favored by the Chinese and Russians will bite even them! Despite US media efforts to hide the knowledge of the existence of our incredibly huge domestic supplies of oil and NG from the US populace, our world neighbors and friends know we have that supply! They know it is only a matter of time that US domestic pressure for jobs and balanced spending will enable the national will to exploit those supplies fully. Thus a recovered economy, balanced by energy production, restrained public spending, agricultural production and a renaissance of manufacturing and small business development will be the tide that lifts all boats but relegates the Arab sand fleas back to the dust bins they came from!

They talk about a one world world order...I say lets give them a one world order all right; with the US Constitution with its Bill of Rights being made the Constitution of the World! (nahhh I don’t think it would ever happen).

Prediction: Romney gets elected with a huge Republican gain in the house and senate as well as state and local races and you’ll see a market of 20000 or more in 18 months. I think we’ll have to tolerate some higher taxes and inflation( some debts will need to be monetized temporarily to get us over the hump) related to the damage done by 50 years of profligate spending and the choaking off of our Businesses by the enviromental mandarins, but perhaps flat tax structures can be introduced. In short we need to produce and work our way out of the messes we’re in.

Just the most arrogant, yet kooky thing I have ever heard- not just a President say- but a male! If my husband ever said something like that, I’d be out in the barn looking for his pod! So odd, embarrassing and scary all at the same time. Did his Teleprompter quit? What happened to the words of gold that he used to utter and would cause the crowds to swoon?

It is an extremely strange comment, coming from, as you said, not just a president, but a man. I wonder if he's cracking up.

I'm sure they will try something ... I'm with you there. I just can't think of what they can do that would even be temporarily effective. I may be wrong, but I think savvy investors have figured out they can't trust this WH.

Maybe I'm wrong ...

I think this election cycle is going to be such a flippin' blow out the Dem's will not recover for 20 years as a repudiation of all things Obama...
* We hold the House and add Tea Party Reinforcements
* The Senate goes to 60 or more in our favor ( Dick Morris now agrees with me on this )
* Romney wins big just as a protest vote, and...
* The down-ballot wins at the local level via the Tea Party are huge again...

This is true only if all the dimes stand on edge. Nevertheless, because I love to hear or read of ANY news of 0dumb0's ejection from WH, it is good to read this.

HOWEVER....as the saying goes, we better fight like it depends on us and pray like it depends on God (which ultimately it does anyway). I don't think we can truly understand the depth of evil & hatred within 0dumb0's soul. He will NOT go down without a mammoth evil, satanic blitzkrieg of enormous proportions. Now that he has declared war on God & the Bible, with his coming out (both as a homo I believe, and in favor of homo/lesbian marriage), I believe that Romans 1:18-32 applies to 0dumb0. God will "give" 0dumb0 over to his own debased mind, to do those things which are not seemly. He will become a full fledged reprobate as described in Romans 1:18-32. I believe that 0dumb0 will be demonically possessed and will resort to any tactics necessary to hold onto his power. We are in for the fight of our lives, make no mistake about it.

What. and give up wearing all those flannel shirts?

In my book, flannel should only be worn to formal occasions such as weddings. I prefer something stylish and comfortable, that blends in most anywhere for day to day wear like Mossy Oak or Realtree.

For something a bit more professional [ie business casual] generally if it says "Carhartt," it'll do.
