From Krauthammer’s lips to God’s ear. (ie, I hope he’s right.)

Zero on the decline? You people are looking at it all wrong. What he has accomplished for himself is nothing less than spectacular.

Zero was a con man from the beginning. Politics was his vehicle to make a living doing nothing. He hit the mother lode with the presidency.

Look at it. He stays up late; he sleeps late; he pretends to work, and that, only a few hours a day. He's obviously clueless re his job, yet he's got a salary and benefits package that rivals corporate CEOs.

And he gets to keep those benefits for life.

You're looking at him all wrong. You're judging him on the basis of presidents. He never really cared about being "president."

He only cared about the "bling." All he's ever cared about is scamming for dollars. And for a foreign born America hating socialist muslim con artist to have accomplished all that?

Pretty remarkable.

Kraut :”And we’ve just experienced one. From king of the world to dead in the water in six months. Quite a ride.”

Very entertaining read.

In some ways its like GWB >eight years ago overconfident over the 2004 election talking cocky bragging and then suffering a immediate string of defeats.

Hope it continues.

Krauth is right. Obozo will crash and burn, when the right people have had enough of his damage.

obama’s worshipers and those that voted for him[over 50% of the votes both times] do not believe that he is damaging the Country. They believe that it is the Republicans that are damaging the Country. They also believe that obama is trying to save the Country and he would if the Republicans would stop fighting him. And each year the educational system turns out another batch of obama worshipers. So the chances of obama crashing and burning is less than the sun rising in the west.

Both parties are damaging the country. They are the same at their rotten core. If it wasn’t Obama it would Romney up there stealing and conning. There are no real conservative leaders anymore. A few tokens, but they die quick deaths due to media power. So in the end there is no real chance to impact federally. On the state level however, there is still power - that is where we must focus.

Kraut is in on the scam. Reality is the USA will be lucky to ever have another President. We’ll be lucky if the internet is still a place free ideas may be expressed and by extension that Free Republic is still around and can be called Free.

We are on a slippery slope that is about to move much faster than anyone would want to believe. Very bad days ahead for the USA — to be measured in months (maybe up to 20 so but a very short period)

THIS is the truth, right here. Lefties will NEVER believe that leftist policies are to blame for anything, nor will they believe whichever current messiah they worship could ever have done anything wrong. We saw this with Clinton, and now you can multiply that by a factor of 10 with Obama. If Obama were on the White House lawn, naked and screaming while raping a child, lefties would find a way to blame conservatives.

Kraut has proven to have ZERO understanding of leftist revolution or that we are in the midst of one. Therefore, I can not take his analysis seriously.

I’m afraid you’re right.

May God have mercy on the United States.......and, in turn, the world.

The world is going to miss America.

But just how much grief can he cause this nation until then?

You are exactly right. Romney would have slowed the bleeding. Now we’re dying a death by a thousand cuts inflicted by this evil man.

That “anybody but Romney” nonsense was so stupid. Now we’re sunk for sure and the country is lost.

He may well be on the decline but he’s still president for three more years and has enormous power, especially with a supine Congress and a fawning media.

Even if Krauthammer is right, and he may be, the media will pull a “Weekend at Bernie’s”, and prop Obama up for the next three years. You’ll see his corpse dragged around from teleprompter to teleprompter with high praise from the fawning press. The low information voters won’t know the difference.

Yes it does.

This only ends one way, as history has shown over and over and over.

Cromwell, Pinochet, or Suharto?

Minimum damage, if we're very lucky. Long-lasting disaster, much more probable.

Of course he will continue ‘the plan’, but the plan itself will fail. The ‘Progressives’ always forget that you need productive individuals to support and work for the plan.
There is serious consequences when Trust of the system is lost.

Shut it all down and brainwash the people into mindless submissive worshippers.

David Harsanyi of Human Events was on C-SPAN this morning (a re-run), with a very gloomy outlook on the future of conservatism in the US. Basically his message was "we're doomed" unless a charismatic figure emerges (Ronald Reagan style) to recapture the Presidency, because so many people, especially younger voters, agree with the Obama agenda of giving more power to the government to solve all our problems, and too few care about liberty.

There was a time that quiet powerful people could stop such as this. Have they all been bought off?

If so, the consequences are unthinkable.

I don't see any way out: either dictatorship or the nation breaks up into two or more smaller countries. Whether there will be another civil war... who knows?

For MY grandchild, I pray that I AM not correct.

As history students, we are used to looking at movements as they developed over long periods in times long past. In this century, things move very fast. The lessons of the past are repeated, but in a very compressed and bewildering fashion.

Who could believe that even half of those who bother to vote could be convinced to vote against their own best interests, that of their children, and above all, that of their country?

Very soon, one-third of our population will essentially be foreigners, that is people who have no deep connection to the country. Another 15% and growing, live 100% on the dole. An élite 10% thinks they can manage a socialist government and achieve lasting power by playing these groups against a dwindling number of productive citizens.

It has always been the Achille's Heel of democracy that they can be granted that chance.

Few understand that our nation was Never a Democracy. But a representative Republic.

The Founders understood that Democracies were a fleeting illusion and the path lead to a short and often violent national end.

I have recently explained this to acquaintances and the puzzled look on their face was telling. Good people who simply do not comprehend where we actually are.

Correct. As long as the media is in the pocket of the state, “mo” can be re-acquired. It will depend on timing and the issue.
