Why he's falling apart
New York Daily News*, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/7/2012 6:20:14 AM

A presidential reelection campaign needs three key elements: a defense of the incumbent’s record, a successful effort to define the opposition and a compelling vision of a second term. President Obama may well celebrate a second term in Chicago next month, but the conventional wisdom underestimates the difficulty he faces, as his campaign has distinct problems with all three elements. His defense of his record is exceptionally weak, his effort to define Mitt Romney is nearly exhausted, and his vision for the next four years — perhaps the most important — has been largely missing from

Don't underestimate a narcissistic liar.

And don't underestimate the need for ungodly people (those that have no place in their lives for God or Godly values) to put their faith in one.

NY Daily News is solidly blue collar. Bad news for King Obeyme.

The real problem for a second obama term (highly unlikely now) is that interest rates on the national debt will probably start to go up. I don't think that has been factored in yet to the pain. The past 4 years will seem like a week at Disney World.

Interest rates have not helped with housing around my area of N.Mississippi. And, it has hurt people who depend on their savings not the government for their support. My Mom is 90 and her income dropped 60% due to cd's no interest. I will be sorry for first time home buyers if interest goes up but the whole fed corruption and political manipulation has to stop. Let the chips fall where they may.

I don't underestimate Obama, but recognize that his lack of core knowledge and management/strategic abilities is finally doing him in. This race is far from over, but he won't recover in debate land. He simply lacks the capacity to acknowledge his mistakes and there is really no time left for him to acquire the knowledge necessary to beat Mitt in a debate. It's like he's got finals and he hasn't been to class for four years.

When the fallout from the last four years hits the American public it will likely be after President Romney has been inaugurated. Guess who the media will blame for the downturn...not Obama.

FTA: In February 2009, even most Republicans would probably have predicted that by 2012, the country would be feeling much more prosperous, with much lower unemployment.

Not the Republicans who understood what Obama intended to do. The clues were there before the '08 election. When he told Joe the plumber he wanted to spread the wealth around, people should have realized that prosperity was not Obama's goal.

FTA:
Four years ago, Obama expressed great confidence that he would be running amid renewed prosperity; he famously told Matt Lauer, ''One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable. You know, I’ve got four years...If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.''

I have wondered about this comment of his to Matt Lauer ever since he made it.

We all know by now that leftists dissemble and are forever trying to redefine our language - what words mean. I could give myriad examples. So let's rethink the meaning of that sentence, ending with 'one-term proposition' perhaps the way HE INTENDED IT.

To us it sounds like, and we interpret it as, 'one term in office' ... no re-election. But that word 'proposition' bothers me.

What if - and I'm a big fan of the 'what if's' in life (you gotta prepare) - what if there's just something else coming down the pike from him/them. A proposition can also mean an idea, a proposal, or even, in lib-speak, a mandate.

My interpretation: If he didn't have the U.S. economy completely trashed in 3 years, then he/they'd have to come up with something else to keep him in place to finish completely destroying this country.

See where I'm going with this? The 'renewed prosperity' part of the first sentence is simply a lie. But then, that word 'renewed' bothers me.....

O the irony! Will Romney be allowed to blame Obama for the mess he inherited where the economy goes over the cliff with the taxes etc going into effect Jan 1 and the currency weakened by four years of printing money and irresponsible spending? My guess Romney will be held responsible within a month!

It's a simple answer....

There is no "there" in the man.....

He's been spun by his handlers all along, i.e. valerie jarret (the Iranian) and SOROS (the slippery).....

I was happy to hear 70 million viewers saw the debate. That means they saw a grown/up, i.e. President Romney debate a "child", obama, and verbally take him to the wood/shed....

I hope californians remember that when they pay $5.00 a gallon for gasoline. Perhaps they're like Illinois. WE are stuck with alllllllll demorats running everything and the only way out is ---------- OUT. Sell and move is the motto of lots of Illinoisans....

Yes, Mitt knows he'll be blamed when things worsen but by then he'll have 1) unleashed the energy sector here 2) which will influence and drop ME oil prices 3) which will unburden much of our domestic cash 4) with a republican congress proceed to de-regulate and free US business 5) who will hire millions 6) bringing in billions of sidelined cash 7) creating millions of new taxpayers 8) whose tax revenues answer one half of our financial problem. The other half ( govt spending ) is the type of problem at which Romney realllllly excels.

Poster #10 is right. Romney will be blamed for everything; the MSM will see to that. Nevertheless, this country has to pull the stops on the boy king. What we will certainly see is if the democrats are willing to let the country collapse or if they will put politics aside and work toward real solutions. We are in need of some serious divine intervention if we think we can turn this thing around. If Romney wins, and I believe he will, this exceptional country will rise from the ashes like a phoenix. With God all things are possible.

Obama's not that into us. Never has been. And he has rejected any strategy based on basic economic principles, not understanding that in some ways they're like forces of nature. You can pretend they don't exist, but that won't stop the tornado from mowing through your home. We didn't build a storm shelter or buy insurance thanks to him. But we can make someone else buy our birth control pills. Yea!

Come on November.

For four years I've heard how the American people were so tired of George Bush and that's why obama easily beat JM. Are we not tired of obama after four years, especially since things are worse than they were when Bush was president all 8 years? obama should be getting beat like he stole something. He lies and people know he's lying. His fan club has to continually make excuses for him and continue to cover for him. He does nothing when our people are attack by terrorist Muslims. He's weak everywhere he turns and yet, he may get re-elected. If that happens, we deserve whatever he gives us. I say we because we're all in this whether we vote for him or not. If he's re-elected, I personally think it will signal God's continued judgment upon us, and if he's not, then I think it will be God's mercy. I may have doubts about Romney but he is the man for the economic mess we are in and obit is clearly in over his head. The choice is clear but if we as a nation choose wrongly, well, we get what we vote for.

Just remember it's really hard to defeat an incumbent - even a really bad one. We all know by now about the 1980 race where Carter had a small lead over Reagan as late as 1 week before the election. Will voters opt for 4 more years of this? Despite Obama's continual non-stop barrage of negative commercials and phony government reports, I think he has run out of steam.

No. 22 has it right. Don't think for one minute that you should stay home and not vote because you think there is no way he can win. If all the ones who think about Obama like I do get out there and vote, we may win but if we get complacent, we are in for a terrible next 4 years and maybe even longer as Obama is thinking like a dictator and that is what he wants. Lets not let him have it........

The free ride is over for the fraud in chief.

Just as an observer, I've had the feeling for awhile now, that he's not that enthused about winning, but merely going through the motions. He certainly knows what's coming up on the horizon, and how brutal the next four years are going to be. He figures get out now while his side still thinks he's terrific and let the next guy do the dirty work of cleaning up the economy. There's no doubt, he would rather he playing golf in Hawaii then having to make important decisions about matters he doesn't quite understand.

No. 16 said it best. If he wins, I'm confident Romney has the foresight to put in place whatever measures he has to to get the country working again. The world is watching & waiting for us to LEAD again. When the U.S. makes a start at getting back on track, a lot the world's confidence will come back to us. Nothing will get solved without a U.S. economy that is firing on all cylinders. I would even add - slash the corporate tax rates & watch a lot of business move back to our shores. If little old Agnes knows it, you can be sure that Romney knows it!

I read these articles and I pray this is correct and the vast majority will vote for Romney. Not that I like all of what Romney stands for but he "appears" to be honest and care about others while the President has "proven" to be dishonest. Now I read in the morning paper the President raised $1 billion for the election campaign again! Where is that cash coming from? Not here. In the last cycle Visa and MasterCard had thousands of credit cards issued, by their own admission, and each had a donation of $199 sent to candidate Obama. Why was this never investigated? Corruption Chicago style and "dishonest"!

I go back and forth on the general stupidity of the American public, probably because the margins are so close. Still, I'm beginning to believe/hope that enough people have had their eyes opened by the staggering failure of Fauxbama that there will be a Romney victory. The ever diminishing credibility of the msm helps raise my hopes for our country's salvation as well.

I think that the poll numbers showing the closeness of the election, with the incumbent ahead is based on internal polling data. I think it shows a very depressed base on the D side that is showing a reluctance to show at the polls. They just aren't buying what O is selling but wouldn't cross over, so they will stay at home. The only way to keep it close is to plant a seed of closeness so that R's will think that after everything going on, there may be a reelection, get depressed and stay home as well, giving O a better chance.

Yes, Obozo is falling apart. To those of us that take the time and effort to educate ourselves to what is going on in the country and the world at large, it's very evident. But what really bothers me is the sheer number of Americans who DON'T keep up on all these things. They are just concerned about their own getting by and have no interest in what might be happening elsewhere. And, these people still get to vote. And usually vote for those who promise them the most "stuff" that they don't have to pay for. After all, it will be paid for by taxing "the rich".

Mr 0blamer has proven that he has no clue or desire to improve the economy. As a creature of the entitlement culture who hasbeen given a leg up in every part of his life, he thinks everything is free.
He abnd the democrat party fail to see the 2010 election as a complete repudiation of his socialist ideals. So their only election opportunity is to lie and vilify Mr Romney in an attempt to change the subject from a completely failed presidency.
Or maybe it is a planned campaign to destroy our economy and our nation to achieve Mr Kruschevs "we will bury you".

In California, I am voting because of Proposition 32. It is a start to limit union power in how union dues will be collected from union members. That's why it's being opposed by the CTA, SEIU and other unions here. I conceded that Romney will lose Ca. I am voting for him anyway as a sort of conscience vote.

If Romney wins the economy will take off almost immediately, don't fear a bad economy being blamed on Romney. The only reason it has been so dismal (other than having a Socialist President) is because of business uncertainty, always the hope that government will be returned to adults and a more favorable business climate. If that happens in November, business will take off very soon afterward. The reverse if Obama is reelected.

That is because of the TELEPROMPTER. Obama HAS to be fed the answers...He is a great Orator, but not a great thinker.

That is why he is an empty suit, he doesn't make the decisions, he just talks about things. The perfect puppet !!!

Valerie Jarrett is the one that is actually running the Country!

It would be interesting to see who are the ones that actually are typing in the words on that teleprompter ???????

fta - "..a successful effort to define the opposition..."

Bain, tax returns etc. have gained no traction. The laundry list of debate excuses includes something that may -- Romney is a liar. A concept so simple and demagogic that his sad army of fools can grasp it. And by labeling Romney a liar, the false extension Obama doesn't lie.

Should Romney win, as others note, he'll be hated and hamstrung before he sets foot in the White House.

#34, I wondered Obozo's last election where all that small money was coming from since supposedly they came from small donors. Now, he pulls this crap again with the economy worse and people even poorer. MC and VISA should be hauled before congress and find out if these cards were bought individually or if they were bought in bulk. I don't think how big or how small the donation to election, they should all be exposed to the light of day. This is a controlling legal authority! It is called, WE THE PEOPLE!

In Obama's second term, Obama said that he wants to eliminate the "Bush tax cuts" for all taxpayers earning over $250,000 and make the rich "pay a little more". He also said that the he would leave the "Bush tax cuts" in place "next year" for middle class and working class families earning under $250,000.

During the debate Obama acknowledged that "making the rich pay a little more" will never support his government spending objectives or eliminate the deficit. So it is fair to figure that once Obama is safely re-elected, that he will then push for the complete elimination of the "Bush tax cuts" for everyone who pays taxes in the following years. That alone would amount to a big tax increase for the middle class and working class families.

Anyone who has been around for awhile knows that politicians whose mission in life is to raise taxes always start with "the rich paying a little more" and then move on down and attempt to raise taxes on middle class and working class families, as those population groups are where the vast majority of Americans who actually do pay taxes are financially situated, and therefore from where most new tax revenue can be obtained.

Don't underestimate the power of the American Main Stream Media.
They will do anything & everything to keep their empty suit in office.

Why? Because he vaguely promises them:

A greener planet while
Making oil fuel obsolete;
Gay marriage;
Bringing all our troops home from the war;
Robbing from the (eeeevil) rich to give to the poor;
We'll be oh-so-fair to the misunderstood muslims, thus
Keeping us out of being attacked by making them like us.

This all makes perfect sense to the Liberal Left. It's suicide for this great nation, but they haven't a clue. Their hearts/hang ups blind them to the truth that there is evil in the world & it's not oil. It's Muslim terrorism, not corporate greed that we must be strong enough to fight.

I thought I saw the entire Democrat congressional delegation this weekend.

Turned out I was in a Joseph A. Banks store looking at the suit rack.

Several have commented that Romney will inherit an economy that is genuinely worse than that 0bama says he got. I believe that, given his personal record, Governor Romney is looking forward to demonstrating that his 25 years of success have equipped him to correct the situation before 2014. The key, of course, is can he find cooperation "across the aisle"?
So- we need voters to pull the party lever, not just the one for president.

#5, you are so right. If Romney wins, the media will blame Romney when the inevitable severe downturn or collapse happens. The bright spot is that Romney will be President, and able to do something, unlike Barry, who will sit sucking his thumb and saying mean things about capitalism.

Keep in mind that the Libs are in defense mode now. They are lowering our expectations for the next debate so much that if 0 manages to string together two coherent sentences in a row they will be yelling "He's back"!

By now they are all yelling at each other for their public reactions to the fiasco and figuring out how to put the clothes back on the phony emperor.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. But above all vote like your life depends on it...

FTA: "Once Romney came across as knowledgeable, clear and deeply concerned about the state of the country, the entire vilification campaign of summer and early fall looked shaky and less convincing." Shaky? Less convincing?

Go ahead and just say it Jim: the vilification campaign has now exposed as patently and ridiculously false, in front of 60 million people. The prospects for Obama to fare better in the next debate are slim to none. The man is a flim-flam artist who has been thoroughly exposed as the fraudster he is. He'll probably get nasty next time, but Mitt will be prepared for that.

Romney even likened Obama to his five sons trying to peddle lies when they were boys! Obama didn't have an answer for that either. How could he have? It's undeniable and clear for all to see. That's why the lefties are melting down - they know it's true and they have nothing meaningful left to say.

#22 is right on. He will be reelected because he has many stupid Americans on his dole i. e. free cell phones. The electorate is generally so stupid that don't even connect the dilemma we are in with Øbama. If it gets close they will cheat. The US is finished.

The Mulatto Kid is the poster child for the three Es: Empty Chair, Empty Suit and Empty Head.

Too bad that the Empty Head also describes the stupid voters who think their free phones, reworked mortgages and part-time jobs are from the same Empty Chair. They have no conception of how government works or they wouldn't vote for the Mulatto Kid again.

New grand jury expected to be seated
in Gov. Rick Perry´s ethics case
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Texan, 23, Headed To State Prison
For Urinating On The Alamo

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush.

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

He may not have been able to attend the Sochi Olympics, but Vice President Joe Biden is set to return to the world sporting event stage this summer by hanging out at the World Cup, the White House announced today. Biden is very excited. "You know, we have our Super Bowl, we have our World Series, we have the NBA Finals, we have March Madness, but my Lord, it is nothing quite like the World Cup," he said today as he and Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled the World Cup trophy.

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary. Her White House biography touts her key private-sector experience as president of the massive

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
