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.

“Temper but preserve.” Yes, where what ever you like under your protective Burqa.

I can’t keep up. I thought we were not listening to the candidates’ wives.

Michelle an exception. She had a paid position at a hospital run by OB’s associate.

OK

You know? I’m 62 years old and I cannot remember - a single instance - where a President or his FLOTUS ever uttered the phrase “you (meaning he or she) can be POWERFUL”.

Sure, there have been times when the word ‘powerful’ was mentioned, but only in the context of the collective ‘we’ or the United States and/or its military. But this? This is just a true look into this couples’ souls.

This is arrogance of the highest order. It is meglomania and unrivaled hubris combined. They will be the blackest stain on this nation’s fabric for generations to come.

Ideology aside, I think it all comes down to the Stock Market. Have you noticed that Obama’s ratings go up with the Market is up and down when its down? I have. And you can be this Fall that they will pull out all the stops to make the Market go through the roof.

Very interesting that Obama is going all fashionista, after the very public and apparantly purposed memes that he is gay, outright.

Speaking of the Slimes/CBS poll, I am of the belief that all polling has lost any science it may have had, however UP Chuck Todd from MSNBC is quite upset with this poll.

He says of the CBS/NYTimes poll, it is not scientific and the methodology is not reliable. The thing is is that he is telegraphing that his poll will set things all right with his boss Obama, we have people out in the field now.

Why does the WSJ have anything to do with the NBC poll? Chuck Todd has said on a number of occasions that he has input into the poll such as wording of the questions etc.

Not sure why anybody would trust any poll, whether it`s Fox,Rass, Gallup,whatever.

I imagine the polling will go Obama`s way, because the people that do the polling ALL have an agenda

I’m really surprised to see that Romney is leading among “women”, though that’s a false demographic.

It would be interesting to see the married vs single/divorced women’s demographics.

Almost as bad as our President’s speech and demeanor, was the nauseating fawning over BHO by the women of Barnard College. I haven’t been exposed to anything so revolting since Bill Clinton and the blue dress.

I'm sorry, but you mentioned "Michelle Obama" and "fashion" in the same sentence, which triggered the Doomsday Photo

The keyword is “can”. He’s basically telling women that they aren’t anything but if they follow his fashion advise then they “can” be powerful.

“Obama rhapsodized about his partial reversion to previous support for gay marriage in advance of attending a fundraiser with his party’s fundraising shop for “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender” Democrats that featured Ricky Martin, he of Menudo, bikini briefs and “She Bangs.”

If this is what Romney's up against, I predict Obama loses by 25%.

kcvl,

Did she really wear that outfit to the Children’s Choice Awards? That’s not photoshopped?

Can you imagine the ridicule if Laura Bush dressed like that? Who dresses the First Wookie? Unbelievable!

Well put!

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?

Soon, we WILL have the Fashion Police-for real. Only the ruling class will be allowed to wear what they please and the rest of us-either dirty black bed sheets or those matching jackets that button at the neck that say “made in China” on the label...

Oh boy....

And it isn't even convention season of which the two candidates get a 5 to 10 point bounce respectively if my memory is correct.....

The question is what if Obama's is a dead cat one? Tangent to that, NC doesn't want them and a swap at the last minute looks amateur.

And they can't ask him to go or they have revolt and ruin their narrative, IMHO it is too late to pull an LBJ. With that said the DNC is stuck with Obama and they know they are screwed.....

I say it again, 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...

You heard it here 1st, I can smell it.

I think it is part of Obummer's election strategy. In 2008 Americans were told to elect the first Black President to prove they were not racist. Now the Dems can say elect the first Gay President to prove you are not homophobic.

I don't think it will work.

I guess his fashion advice is hep, then. In the immortal collective words of Biden, Kerry, Mathews, whomever....”...an articulate, well-dressed black man with a sharp crease in his pants that just makes you want to pee down your leg, by golly..” It is still arrogance unbridled.

The dems are lining up on deck next to the ropes going to the pier. With water beginning to fill the engine room, they know best.

Am suspecting that black stain will not be renewed this year nor during anyone’s lifetime who is older than 6 today. Its comparible to “pissin on the electric fense” or touching the hot stove, not voluntarily done a second time.

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.

They cannot explain away a poll by 2 of the biggest liberal media conglomerates showing Obama behind.

Real panic will set in if NBC, ABC, NPR, etc show similar numbers. Especially among independents and women.

Admin claiming a CBS/NYT is “biased” is just laughable.
