The Electionů The Election of 2014

Stupid or not, it's still going to be the economy.

WASHINGTON -- Jimmy Carter is redeemed! The grinning dunce of yesteryear, who grew into the anile doddering figure of today lecturing the civilized on all manner of statecraft, has been replaced by the saturnine gaunt prophet, Barack Obama. His sorry performance these past four years he lays to the administration of George W. Bush. The next four years will be a replay of the last four years, and an even graver crisis will confront us then with the domestic economy in a funk and foreign potentates all laughing at us.

The Prophet Obama has demonstrated that you can preside over a wobbly economy and be reelected.Our President has offered us nothing during this election that is different from the past four years. That is amazing. He sees trillion-dollar debt for as far as the eye can see. The debt will be 20 trillion dollars when he leaves office and still climbing. Then it will be someone else's problem. Yet President Obama will not be inert. He will raise taxes and other costs on the rich. It will not affect the deficits much. It will slow growth. Yet he will be delivering on his message to the embittered in his coalition that he has made the rich pay more, the rich that already pay 59 percent of the income tax. Withal he will institutionalize the portion of the GDP that the federal government accounts for at some 25 percent. The norm prior to his arrival at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue had been closer to 18 percent. He is bringing the efficiencies of the post office to mainstream American life.

Obama-Soareto: a statue of a man. His masters have vision, they're gifted in every evil way : stoicism, narcissism, psychotic, devoid of any goal for America say that of ruining, completely the United States of America. As for Obama, he just hates white people and the thngs they have MADE.

alas, the debt will be $18 Trillion by June and $20 Trillion by obamas mid-term.

We may also have the precedent that the president determines the debt ceiling (and levels of taxation and foreign interventions and signing international treaties on climate, open border immigration and disarmament) without Congressional interference

you heard it here first.....the demholes will retake the House in 2014. i’m sure they’ve already started to identify 30 or 40 target seats. seats in districts/counties/cities where they control the counting and the election will be close enough to steal.

And I predict several things will happen:

1. Within the first year of the second scourge of Obama things will begin to get much worse. At the end of his reign the Democrat Party will begin to literally disintigrate.

2. By that time a legitimate Third Party emerges.l

3. The Republicrats join their friends in ignominity.

We can only hope that one of our many enemies does not take this precarious period in our time to attempt to destroy us. With Obama at the head of the central socialist government anything can happen. Capitulation would be my first guess.

Our weakness is our diversity!

I love this part.

[Another is the college-age student. The student is among my favorite seekers of more government. All of them are going to be paying for Obama’s excesses for years to come and living in an economy with slow growth. Frankly the older grayer Americans have lived prosperous lives, but these stupid youths are just setting out in life. They will pay the older citizens’ Social Security and healthcare for years. It will not be very good healthcare but it will be better healthcare than stupid youths will eventually see.]

What morons college students are. So telling that liberals now turn them out to vote in record numbers. Stupid sheep cutting their own throats.
