A Staggeringly Empty Suit

Many commentators are speculating whether President Obama will move to the center or "triangulate" in order to salvage part of his agenda and increase his chances for re-election. I don't believe he has either the inclination to move or the political skills to successfully pretend to (or otherwise outmaneuver Republicans), which leads me to conclude his re-election will depend less on his shenanigans and more on how the GOP acquits itself.

Dick Morris recently argued that Obama will not be able to move to the center or triangulate "because — even if he wanted to — he can't. The issues today are very different from those that separated the parties in 1994 and do not lend themselves to common ground." I agree with Dick but also think there's more to it.

“...there’s more to it.”

Of course there is more. Obama is a Marxist. His goal is the destruction of the U.S.A. Pretty simple, really!

But now we have his record — confirming his unambiguously liberal background, associations and legislative record (all of which his useful enablers refused to acknowledge) — and it violently contradicts his platitudes.

Let's stop favoring BHO with the "liberal" label and get down to cases - HE IS A SOCIALIST! I think the new book, "Radical in Chief", has adequate evidence to dispense with the niceties of "liberal" or "progressive".

He will not triangulate and the voters will continue to exterminate.

if the Republicans shoot themselves in the foot (as they have done in the past), Obama will be in like Flynn in 2012. The Republicans will really have to play heads up ball and get some job creation in the private sector in the next two years. It truly is the economy- stupid.

To use a couple favorite word for reporting on this administration ... Obama has turned out to be “a surprisingly, unexpectedly empty suit.”

“There is no question that his shtick, backed up by a highly oiled and ruthless cabal of veteran community organizers, worked the first time around. But given what’s transpired since, could it ever work for him again? I think not.”

Voters allowed themselves to be razzle-dazzled. Period.

Any Joe Shmoe on the street, with THAT kind of machine and money behind him/her could get elected. THAT is what has become of our election process!!! Look for more of the same.

That Liberals have been first and most adept at exploiting this to the utmost, asinine extreme and succeeded in foisting “O” on us (first as a candidate and then as a President) speaks well of their political daring and resourcefulness … and poorly of the limits of voter credulity. Now, STUPIDITY is a valid point of view in America.

Politicos can count ALWAYS count on elements which are easily led and then factor that into their calculation of possible votes. However, THAT element should never be in a position to decide an election. They were in the last national election. Shameful advantage was taken of the myriad of disaffected groups in America and of whom, if taken singly, do NOT represent America at large. Any child can understand this and yet Liberals bank on just this scenario to field insignificant and even wholly unfit candidates.

Lots of blame to go around.

Liberals did it and Conservatives let them.

“he blames the unpopularity of Obamacare on his not getting the kid of cooperation from Republicans that (he) had hoped for.”

How does this jerk expect cooperation from the GOP when he won’t let them in the room for discussions?

Republicans have to pass popular legislation out of the House and let the Democrat Senate and Obama publicly kill it.

Face it, the economy isn’t going to improve much as long as Ogabe is POTUS and the Donks hold the Senate.

Which also brings another good point: having a Donk Senate prevents Ogabe and his henchmen from blaming Republicans for everything that goes bad. They still hold the majority of power. That combined with the vast numbers of GOP state legislative seats gained just in time for redistricting spells doom for the National Socialist Democrat Worker’s Party in 2012— provided the GOP doesn’t screw up again.

Hey you obviously didn’t see Bill Maher on O’Reily last night. Maher says that there’s no way that Obama is a Socialist, why he’s not even liberal, he’s pretty much a right wing Capitalist according to Maher. Now, who you going to believe someone with the intellectual firepower of Bill Maher or your own lying eyes and ears?

Maher and O’Reilly - that’s a real pair of intellectuals. What did they title the show, Mutual Mental Masturbation? I will have to grant Maher one point: Obama is a wholly-owned subsidiary of George Soros’ capitalistic enterprise. Of course, Soros is well-established as a leftist, his capitalism not withstanding.
