Guaranteed. (Vanity)
April 10, 2012 | By Lazamataz

Posted on 04/10/2012 10:05:35 AM PDT by Lazamataz

It pains me to write this, but I am a realist: Barack Obama is one-hundred-percent guaranteed to win the 2012 Presidential race, and there is precious little anyone can do about it.

Please do not take this as a license to do nothing to prevent it. It is best that we go to our fate knowing we did all we could to stop it. We must know in deep in our core that all our hearts and souls were poured into thwarting the plans of this tyrant.

However: allow me to present the reasons I know we are destined to have another -- terminal -- four years of Obama:

  1. War With Iran: One-hundred-percent chance of Obama going to war with Iran in August of 2012. This will be a cynical pseudo-war intended ONLY to benefit Obama with the very-long-demonstrated rally-round-the-President phenomenon. August also gives the proper time frame to allow the momentum to build in Obama's favor, and yet not be long enough of a 'war' to garner popular anger. It also prevents the Republicans from having enough time to educate the public about this hideously-cynical Machiavellian move.
  2. High Gas Prices as a Positive: The War with Iran will allow Obama to claim he is doing this to reduce gasoline prices, or prevent them from rising. This is nonsense, of course: It will be launched for political reasons and his Transportation Secretary pick, Steven Chu, has long been on record as favoring very high gasoline prices.
  3. Race Wars: Racial low-grade warfare will be purposefully pushed by this Administration, and coupled with a complicit press, the incidents of black-on-white violent crime will be 'disappeared down the memory hole', but any white-on-black violent crime will be heralded and trumpeted on every headline on every newspaper and Gangster Government Media outlet. This is intended to increase the black vote.
  4. Lies about the Economy: The complicit press will continue to lie about the economy, biasing things to show Obama in a good light.
  5. Occupy Wall Street: Occupy Wall Street protests will drastically increase, in a manner intended to highlight Mitt Romney's wealth and paint him as a 1%-er, and paint Obama as an average guy.
These are the major election strategies Obama clearly intends to run on. Add in some of the more minor strategies: Active and ignored voter fraud; Ignoring and overruling Supreme Court rulings on Obamacare being unconstitutional; and the fabricated 'Republican war on women', and you have a formula for guaranteed Obama re-election.

And if you thought Obama was bad in Presidential term one, imagine him with nothing to lose in Presidential term two.

100% agree, Laz. And yes, we should go down fighting. And no, I will not vote Romney. After 7 presidential elections, I will finally be voting my conscience, not the party line.

I disagree and think all of those reasons listed above, are ALL the reasons he WON’T win.

We outnumber the Progressives 2 to 1. And more of us are waking up every day, especially with all this crap they are pulling and showing their true colors (no pun intended).

We also have God on our side. They don’t.

Proverbs 21:30 “There is no wisdom, nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord.” True, many take counsel against the Lord, and defy His purposes, (Ps. 2:1-3), but there is no wisdom, understanding nor counsel against the Lord that shall stand, (Isa. 8:9-10; Ps. 103:15; 115:5; Acts 4:27-28; 5:39; Eph. 1:11). To set one’s will against the Lord guarantees failure, frustration and final shame.

The problem is, he will probably get his conflict, but things may spiral quickly out of control as China and Russia join the conflict on the side of Iran,...

I don't see it getting that far.

Russia and China are not in Syria and Iran to star a war and side with 'em, they are there to prevent a war and gain control of the oil and gas in the region.

Currently, Iran's oil goes to Western Europe in competition with Russia (same was true for Libyan oil). Redirect that oil to China and China's economy has a major uptick and Russia has Western Europe by the balls.

Russia will protect Israel to PREVENT a war and continue the instability of the region.

The SC will uphold obamacare. obama already knows the vote. His little speech was so he can claim to have “forced” the SC to rule in his favor. This also takes obamacare off the table. The SC has the final say.

I can’t see war with Iran as helping Obama in any way. He further alienates his left allies and Americans in general are war weary.

I am breaking my self imposed ignore politics policy for this one thread. I opted out when both Romney AND Santorum opined on women joining Augusta National. That little pile filled the bucket of my contempt to running over. A pox on them all.

I will vote against Obama in November. That is all.

The best way to guarantee an Obama victory is to make Romney the GOP nominee.

Once that happens, it doesn't matter who wins.

My scenario is Obama wins the popular and loses the electoral like 2000. Then unlike 2000 the SHTF and Martial law is declared. Obama will still be Prez in 2013. Civil War II.

Like others I disagree with your point 1 and 2.

I agree with your points 3,4 and 5.

My biggest reason to date that abomination wins is because the republican party failed to offer a candidate that was distinguishly different. Speaking of Mittens.

Now faced with a choice of 4 more years with obozo and the permanent damage to my children's children OR seeing a picture of you naked and the permanent damage it will do to myself and others here . . . . . . uhmmmmmmm never ever thought i would give the other side a second thought. /sarc

I'm with Defiant on this one...and it's going to take a steely resolve to endure the politicking through Election Day.

The polls mean nothing at this time. The vast majority of voters aren't paying attention to this year's election, and won't until after Labor Day.

I'm not discounting Laz's thoughts, but remember this:

it will all crystalize the last weekend before Election Day. The average voter will ask themselves, "do I really want another 4 years of Obama?"

Through that examination, they'll be reminded of inflation at the grocery store, pain at the pump, crony capitalism (green energy - Solyndra), 15% effective unemployment, a few more vacations by Michelle, and the likelihood the debt limit has been reached ahead of schedule...again.

If the Pubbies/Mitt can focus on the economy, and the spectre of an unfettered Obama in his second term, Romney should win 350+ EV's.

We need to add one more item: Running romney as a candidate pretty much seals the deal for more reasons than I care to list.

Romney can never win and his candidacy effective end the GOP as a viable political party.

Laz, curious as to what makes you believe there's a 100% chance we go to war with Iran in August. Care to elaborate?

1) Obama's incredibly Machiavellian nature. Never seen someone so willing to destroy an entire country, just to rule over the smoking ruins.

2) A gut-feeling by watching the little signs emerging from the complicit State Run media. Most notably, a fairly positive NYT piece that mentioned our focus on litoral warships intended to "battle Iranian attack boats, clear mines from the Strait of Hormuz", and a mention that there will be a second US CVN in the Strait of Hormuz in the Washington Post.

348%? I doubt it will be that high. Probably more like 110%.
But I have been wrong before. In fact twice this year. Once in January and then in March, I thought I have made a mistake. :0

I completely disagree with the various points of this vanity. In fact, they will have precisely the opposite effect. The black vote is a given. The race baiting, occupy movement, crappy economy, and gas prices will kill him. They are turning off Americans big time, and that’s the tone once one gets away from the FR echo chamber or the hyper liberal blogs on the other side. Also, Romney isn’t viewed as negatively in general as he is on this forum. Yes, many Americans receive some sort of government financial aid, but normal mainstreet America would rather have a job than take charity. The media knows Obama is in trouble and present a completely different picture than reality and highlight the disenfranchised “squeeky wheels” as being representive of the electorate at large, which they aren’t. The reality is that the “magic” simply ain’t there anymore. The mask is off. People now openly discuss “socialism” which was almost unheard of a few short years ago. All this negative talk is like a coach in the locker room telling his team before the game that they will get creamed, so just buck up and take your lumps.

There’s actually a reason I’m doing this. If this becomes the public meme — That Obama will start a conflict with Iran to get the popularity boost and the defense against high gas prices — there is a chance it will be so viral as to redound to his detriment.

Sorry but I have trouble with your statement. Many Americans have repented and asked God to restore us, yet they are individuals who can only speak for themselves... not for the nation. Only Obama seems in a position to do that. I would not hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

So God is going to forsake us? Don’t think so. He loves his people. Your statement sounds somewhat haughty.

Dunno ‘bout most of that stuff. Number four is virtually certain and in implementation right now.

I figure it has more do with:

1. Government parasitism (at both ends of the economy) has reached the tipping point. There are more parasites than producers voting.
2. ACORN survived, re-branded itself, and is back on the job of professional vote fraud, once again paid by our tax dollars. If any parasites forget to vote ACORN will be happy to vote for them. Not to mention, the dead, demented, etc.
3. The Unions and their money are completely in the pocket of the President.
4. The MSM is wholly on the president’s side and, like it or not, the majority of Americans STILL get their “news” from the MSM.
5. Romney is about as inspiring as Tofu and has about as much guts. It doesn’t matter who he picks for VP, it won’t improve much.

Dunno that a “war” with Iran would help unless Iran cooperated by “Pearl Harboring” or 9/11ing us first. If Iran launches a successful attack on something with heavy American losses, Obama is in; if not war with Iran can only be a negative.
Race war won’t help him. Obama’s self chosen ethnicity is “black” and we’ll be pretty peeved at blacks if this starts up or escalates.
Occupy Wall Street is a joke. An ugly, smelly joke, but a joke still.
Gas Prices are gas prices. Unless the ‘Pubbies want to press Obama’s anti-energy policies, this won’t have any effect; if the do have the guts to press it (ha!) it will be a negative for Obama.

So Obama will probably win, but for different reasons.
