OBAMA CANNOT WIN 2012

Louisburg, NC

#744624 Sep 18, 2012
A great mistake was made in 2008. That mistake is now blatantly apparent to most voters and most political analysts around the world. Nothing Obama promised has been accomplished. Furthermore, much of what he did added to the country's problems.

Even the fawning media and the Democrat establishment recognize his failings, although neither is willing to publicly discuss them. Democrats should have replaced this defective candidate long ago. Now is too late. Democrat sympathizers can only hope that this election does not destroy what remains of the party. Based on the debacle that was the 2010 election, that fear is not unfounded. If anything, the mistake that was Obama is better-known now than it was two years ago.

James Taranto pointed out the despair among Democrats and their PR arm, the national press. In an editorial, he cited several examples of disillusionment. Howard Portnoy was quoted in the piece stating:

What I believe is happening is that the left is reading the handwriting on the wall and resigning itself to the harsh reality [that] the man they trusted to "fundamentally transform America" is on the verge of being unelected.

Mr. Taranto added his own thoughts to those of the generally liberal pundits:

Not only does Obama's re-election look to be in serious jeopardy, but his presidency has been an almost unmitigated disaster for progressive liberalism, nearly every tenet of which has been revealed to be untenable either practically, politically or both.

This despair was expressed last October. Things have only worsened since then.

Obama Stumbles Out of the Gate

Several different recent weeks have been described by various pundits as "Obama's worst week yet." The rate of his decline steepens as the campaign season heats up.

Now the Obama political campaign is seen as being in disarray. Politico described the early stages of the Obama re-election campaign as follows:

That's the unmistakable reality for Democrats since Obama officially launched his reelection campaign three weeks ago. Obama, not Mitt Romney, is the one with the muddled message -- and the one who often comes across as baldly political. Obama, not Romney, is the one facing blowback from his own party on the central issue of the campaign so far -- Romney'shistory with Bain Capital. And most remarkably, Obama, not Romney, is the one falling behind in fundraising.

Obama's campaign was run so smoothly four years ago that it likely created a false impression on political observers. The campaign cannot be run the same way again for obvious reasons. Nor can it run smoothly this time. There is nothing on which Obama can run on regarding achievements other than the overhyped bin Laden killing.

He looks silly trying to blame Bush for the last four years, although he must make voters believe that he had nothing to do with the failures. Perhaps he should blame even earlier presidents for his woes. After all, Madison and Jefferson provided the Constitution, which he considers a roadblock in his attempts to remake America.

A Bigger Democrat Problem

There is a bigger problem for Democrats than one election and a failed candidate. The strategy adopted long ago and responsible for most of their success over the last eighty years has played itself out, and they are left with nothing.

Franklin Roosevelt, during the Great Depression, saw the value of buying votes by spreading benefits around. It was successful and a strategy refined by other Democrats over the years. It was based on identity politics that focused on certain segments of the population and won them over with "gifts."

It was a strategy of winning elections rather than a strategy of governance, and it was therefore very successful in winning elections, but not so in governing. The Democrat coalition is a motley collection of interest groups with nothing in common other than "we want more." That makes it impossible to have a coherent governing strategy.

Some are amazed that Democrats have not developed a budget for almost three years. It really is impossible to do so without offending their coalition. In a time of monetary constraint, they cannot afford to show who will benefit at the expense of others. That is just an example of how governance becomes impossible with an election strategy based on Santa Claus.

Now the country is near its Thatcher point, where there is no more money to buy votes and goodies will eventually be taken away rather than increased. This condition has serious implications for both political parties, but especially for the Democrats. The Democratic Party now exists and survives for one simple reason -- making dependency more attractive. It has become the party of plunder, taking from the productive and giving to the unproductive in an attempt to buy enough votes to remain relevant.

The party approaches this election as an ogre driving an ice cream truck with no ice cream in it. Democratas will lose this election and will lose many more unless they redefine themselves in terms of something other than Santa Claus. Sadly, for Democrats (and some Republicans), Santa is dead.

You've been a condescending phony and liar for the entire time you've been on this thread. Your racism is barely hidden, we all know your hatred for blacks, your insistence that they have no dumb white lady 'common sense', etc.
Your phony Christianity is more of the same. You reject the teachings of Jesus Christ, even as you declare yourself born-again.
You are a vile, hateful creature, and you deserve the poverty you will spend your retirement years in.
Here's how Jesus viewed humanity:
Luke 6:20-26
New International Version (NIV)
20 Looking at his disciples, he said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
----------
“But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you,
for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.
----------
Your support for those who Jesus spoke out against proves you are no Christian.
Your hatred for those who Jesus favors further proves the same.
It's your warped 'common horses-ass sense' that makes you believe otherwise.
You've never had an original thought in your entire life. All you do is parrot the words of right wing demagogues. You're disgusting.

international treaties do not supersede U.S. laws....
Nobraina proves his ignorance of the US COnstitution - again!!

"“In the United States, a different principle is established. Our constitution declares a treaty to be the law of the land. It is, consequently, to be regarded in courts of justice as equivalent to an act of the legislature, whenever it operates of itself, without the aid of any legislative provision. "

----------

"Origin of the Conception.—How did this distinctive feature of the Constitution come about, by virtue of which the treaty-making authority is enabled to stamp upon its promises the quality of municipal law, thereby rendering them enforceable by the courts without further action? The short answer is that Article VI, paragraph 2, makes treaties the supreme law of the land on the same footing with acts of Congress. The clause was a direct result of one of the major weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation. Although the Articles entrusted the treaty-making power to Congress, fulfillment of Congress’ promises was dependent on the state legislatures.2 Particularly with regard to provisions of the Treaty of Peace of 1783, in which Congress stipulated to protect the property rights of British creditors of American citizens and of the former Loyalists, the promises were not only ignored but were deliberately flouted by many legislatures. Upon repeated British protests, John Jay, the Secretary for Foreign Affairs, suggested to Congress that it request state legislatures to repeal all legislation repugnant to the Treaty of Peace and to authorize their courts to carry the treaty into effect. Although seven States did comply to some extent, the impotency of Congress to effectuate its treaty guarantees was obvious to the Framers who devised Article VI, paragraph 2, to take care of the situation."

You've once again proven that you are an idiot. Try looking things up before sticking your head up your ass again.

for example, oil prices are rising now because the Fed is debasing the dollar, a bad thing.....
alternatively, a weak economy reduces demand for oil, reducing prices, also a bad thing....
So Bush really blew it as indicated when gasoline fell to under $2.

Nonsense. Democrats have made the tax code so progressive that 47% were forgiven federal taxes altogether and even get a earned income tax refund. This gave a huge number of people the freedom to demand more and more government since they don't pay for it.

The top 10% of earners pays 90% of all taxes.
