Obama's Second Term Transformation Plans
American Thinker ^ | May 8, 2012 | Steve McCann

Posted on 05/08/2012 3:05:56 AM PDT by beejaa

..."The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders... "The most significant accomplishment of Obama's first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency..."

“That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.”

He is toxic to any Dem candidates, so they won’t be looking for his support in November. A lot of Dem careers ended in 2009 and 2010 because of this loser (the only polls I believe - the actual elections on his watch), and like BJ Clinton in 2000 he would actually do more harm than good for most candidates.

My dream is a super majority, conservative house and senate. I believe that under those circumstances, we'd see another impeachment. Note - I didn't say republican.

“I believe the author is spot on.”

I believe so myself. Steve McCann IMO is usually.

“All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.”

IOW all resources must be directed at getting rid of Obama period.

Between the Democrats, and the RINO’s, and our Liberties is voter turnout. I don’t recall the disgust, the “why bother!?” that I’m reading into conversations with others nowadays. I believe this to be the weapon the Left is using. Create an atmosphere of inevitability to cause discouragement. This is being done by the Left that comprises the Democrats, and the RINO’s ie; GOP-e as I see it.

“It is going to be interesting when the Obama team tries to confiscate private pensions, 401K’s, and IRA’s.”

Yes it will be interesting to watch ... watch how easy they do it and turn people who have large 401K’s and IRA’s into evil rich who deserve to be stripped of their ill gotten gains.

Watch how the IRS will be involved into intimidating anyone who tries to cash out before hand with huge penalties and potential criminal prosecution by some obscure law.

Once the Govt takes over the 401K’s / IRA’s, guess who will be the largest share holder of privet business in America? And we'll stand there and watch in amazement as America goes from a Capitalistic society to the Govt owning the means of production/business.

Absolutely. Yet every time a new EO is issued, inevitably we're told, “this isn't new, XXXX did this back in XXXX. Obama just updated it”. This is what the career politicians have been working toward.

Quite true!

Obama is going to unleash an unscrululous campaign. This war on women bs is just the beginning.

All of those Freepers railing against Romney, and I'm no Mitt fan, are only insuring the distruction of the country.

They need to called out immediately. W/o a united front we are toast.

I totally agree. I for one certainly did NOT want Mitt to be our nominee, but no matter how far to the left you feel he is, he is NOT BHO and will not appoint outright communists to positions of power. It truly saddens me to see so many on this board saying that they will not vote for president at all if Mitt is the candidate. That is a recipe for disaster IMHO.

Open Mic Catches Obama Asking Medvedev for Space on Missile Defense
March 26, 2012

"In a private conversation about the planned U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe, President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for space on the issue.

This is my last election,” Obama told Medvedev. “After my election I have more flexibility.”

“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Medvedev said, referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin."

http://fox8.com/2012/03/26/open-mic-catches-obama-asking-medvedev-for-space-on-missile-defense/
______________________________________________________________

Obama was talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones. Here is what they said:

Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space.”

Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you ...”

Obama: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” That statement tells us much about the president’s mindset.

The specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear implication from the president’s comments is that he cannot tell the American people before the election what he plans to do after the election.

In addition, there is the phrase “on all these issues,” implying more is at stake than just missile defense.”

Article: Obama plans double cross on missile defense
When it comes to keeping America safe, we shouldn’t be too flexible:

Right on!

Such as FrReeper Waywardson who a couple of days ago was encouraging Freepers to abstain from voting for Romney ("Why Christians and Patriots CANNOT vote for Mitt Romney") who I noticed since then, (and I can't blame him/her) has been in hiding and has not followed up on his INSANE and INANE rant.

As BAD as Boosh was and as many of his RINO Compassionate Conservative policies and programs he supported (or conversely, did not oppose and veto) he never set out to intentionally harm our Republic or make any effort to destroy America....unlike what our present occupier in Chief and FASCIST, NEO-COMMIE, Dear Leader has and as bad as Romney might turn out to be, I don't see anything in his past which leads me to believe he would continue O'Bummer's destructive path.

STAY HOME IF Y'ALL LIKE; castigate and denounce Mittens if you will; warn all of what his Administration would look like, but PLEASE do not advocate the rest of us follow in your SUICIDE PACT and I for one, will NOT help Barry Soetoro's reelection chances by not holding my nose and voting for the lesser of 2 evils.

PS: I am a 68 years old Conservative Independent (and NOT a Republican) Nam Vet who loves this country and fears greatly for our survival if the Community Agitator in Least gets another 4 years to do even more harm than he has already done.

"Spot on" is exactly the way I'd describe this piece as well.All too many people...including all too many right here on FR...don't fully understand that while Jimmy Carter's second term (which is coming to an end) has been beyond disastrous,the next four years,with Osama Obama at the helm,would be Hugo Chavez's third term.

If you believe this is true and even if you knew it to be so, it would still be CRIMINAL not to even TRY and stop the oncoming train wreck that would be the obamination’s 2nd term.

Every person MUST VOTE for WHOEVER is on the ticket, AGAINST the obamination.

I don't like it. Not one bit.

At first, I thought, "There's something missing from the frontal lobe... Ha! That's a cute way of saying, 'He's incapable.'"
But my second impression of the picture is much worse and I do not (under any circumstances!) appreciate any image that implies what I thought."

If I'm not clear. Ask me privately.

Here's a good example (from the article):
"The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted."

Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal.

Fat chance. The Caspar Milquetoast GOP leadership will cower in the corner, as they have since Obama took office. They keep trying to finesse the Obama admin, but you have to be blunt with people like this.
