Obama Has Already Lost
Townhall.com ^ | April 30, 2012 | Lurita Doan

Posted on 04/30/2012 4:28:16 AM PDT by Kaslin

On April 30th in 1789, at Federal Hall in New York City, George Washington took the oath of office to become the first president of the United States. He took that oath amidst a widespread surge of popularity and consensual respect that has yet to be replicated in any subsequent presidential election in this country. For two terms, Washington was able to govern, and govern well, because even before he won the election as president of the United States, through his deeds, Washington had won the respect and trust of all of colonial America. If measured against that high standard, Barack Obama, whether he is elected in November 2012 or not, will be unable to govern effectively, if at all.

Whether the standard to measure Barack Obama is legislative, fiscal, foreign policy, managerial or personal, Obama ranks among the lowest of the low in presidential ability.

Legislatively, Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, is tied up in a Supreme Court challenge which has exposed the shameful short cuts, side dealings and horse-trading that Team Obama was forced to implement in order to have the legislation scrape past the Senate. Billions of dollars of “incentives” to Senators and congressmen can be done once or twice. But, if congress requires these kinds of tawdry incentives to advance Obama’s presidential agenda, it is hard to imagine Obama has any ability to implement future legislation.

Consider some of Obama’s other signature efforts--a JOBS bills that doesn’t create jobs, an energy policy that increases the price of gas at the pump and increases America’s dependence on foreign oil. An insistence of subsidies, for failed “green” endeavors, that waste billions of taxpayer dollars on ill-thought Solar and wind schemes that advance the agendas of Obama’s political allies.

Fiscally, Obama has been the most irresponsible president in the history of the United States (and that is saying something!). Obama’s spend, spend, spend agenda has kept the economy from growing, has created new generations of citizens dependent upon the government dole and has resulted in the slowest growth in GDP in three years. And for what? Obama has not been able to create the jobs he promised because Obama doesn’t understand that business, not government, creates jobs in a free economy.

Entitlement spending has ballooned to outrageous levels wherein over 50% of Americans do not work, nor do they look likely to do so in the future. Obama has put in place trillions of taxpayer dollars as spending intended to stimulate the economy. But the economy has not been “stimulated”, though the pockets of Obama’s political allies have been generously lined with taxpayer dollars.

The president has not even been able to produce a federal budget that can be debated seriously by congress. His last such pathetic attempt was unanimously voted down (0-414), showing that Obama has been abandoned by his own party. Could congress, in a bi-partisan effort, be sending the president an indisputable message about what they think of Obama’s stewardship of the economy?

What does it say that Obama can’t even get one vote on an issue as important as the federal budget? There seems to be universal, bi-partisan agreement that in matters financial, the president is irrelevant.

Obama’s international shenanigans, from his bowing and scraping his way across Asia during his first year in office, to his hugs and handshakes for charlatans and brutish dictators, has been a public embarrassment. Obama’s off-mike comments to Medvedev show the president to be an anxious schoolboy, lackey-like and eager to be all things to all people, desperate for praise and willing to sacrifice American values to achieve.

The story of George Washington and the cherry tree may be apocryphal; merely a tale emblematic of George Washington’s propensity for truthfulness, but Obama spawns no such legend. He has told too many falsehoods, taken too many short cuts, and appointed as his spokespersons and surrogates, too many who do the same, and hence, Obama has lost the trust of the American people. What Obama has lost is what Americans value most—integrity.

And then there is the personal. It is turning out that Obama is actually not very likeable. At every opportunity, Obama seems to jump into controversies that should be solved at a state or local level (Gates affair in Cambridge, MA or Trayvon Martin in FL), before he has all the facts. Obama is showing himself to be a race-baiter, citing directly, or through his surrogates, that any who disagree with his policies or opinions must somehow be racist. Or there’s the class-warfare mongering. Repeatedly, Americans hear Obama blaming “millionaires and billionaires”, claiming that they haven’t paid their “fair share”, though Obama is a multi-millionaire and he, too, takes advantage of every tax loophole.

Barack Obama has been so fixated on his re-election (another of his falsehoods since he has often stated he didn’t care if he was a one-term president) and consumed with building winning “issues-based” coalitions, that he has lost the trust and respect and confidence of most Americans. Even if Obama, by some sleight of hand, were to win in November, he has no mandate; he lost consumer confidence, and he can’t govern.

John Marshall once said that a statesmen is a “a person that loves the people enough to tell them the truth". Barack Obama is clearly no statesmen and has repeatedly refused to deal honestly with the nation’s problems as he ceaselessly maneuvers for short term political gain. Even if he wins the election, it’ll be the longest lame duck session in the nation’s history. Barack Obama cannot govern. The nation is wiser and demands a statesman.

It will be attempted, and again we will see deep city districts with more votes than voters.

However if government owned Chevy runs deep, loathing for Barack Obama runs deeper. The give a damn factor will run quite high this year, this time to literally say damn to Obama. Some will be so high minded that they will pick a third party, but at least even they will go vote to do it and will likely choose the less liberal of any Congressional candidates. Others, the unwashed, will still think that Mitt’s sane platform on economy and jobs is preferable to Barack Obama’s blatant mismanagement.

I believe many denizens here make the mistake of projecting their own worldviews onto larger America. Larger America is going to be caring about the economy, and this “worst candidate ever” will still look wonderful in that light next to Barack Obama. Barack Obama was never a businessman. He Who Must Not Be Mentioned was, and successfully if controversially. People will figure that he ought to know.

This is by no means a ringing endorsement in the absolute. Competition brings out the best in political races, and it’s only because Obama is so lame that the GOP has seriously countenanced Mitt Romney for the big enchilada.

That’s what I’m thinking as well. Can you imagine a debate between RINOmney and Obama? “But Gov. Romney, you did the same thing as me....you did the same thing as me.....you supported the same thing as me....” That’s all Obama has to say and nobody could prove him wrong. The GOP can kiss my a** for pushing that putz.

Historically, if incumbent Obama were going to win he’d be polling way ahead of his presumptive challenger at this point in the calendar. He isn’t, and he continues to point the gun at his shoe and pull the trigger in his desperation to look relevant. The stinking czars. The “crucify” EPA. The brag on catching OBL which should have stopped there but instead brought in a non sequitur about Mitt Romney (Mitt didn’t believe in committing funds to a global OBL manhunt — AND NEITHER DID BARACK. But the discovery of OBL was different, a gift tossed into the President’s lap.)

Face it, John McCain was bamboozled by the race card. It showed, glaringly, to the point he felt he had to say “there is nothing to fear from a President Obama.” This mistake is not being made a second time.

This is the heart of a fundamental debate that is shaping up here, unless and until JR steps in and silences one side of it.

The process of a concerned citizen’s involvement with US presidential politics is a long term one. It’s not just a vote every four years. Perhaps lessons can be taken from this that will enable the production of better, tougher candidates in the future.

I agree. The author is drinking the Romney kool aid.

Obama hasn’t even started his massive spending yet.

And since Romney provides no contrast to Obama, Obama will bury him.

The campaign slogan might as well be:

“Why switch to my mini-me?”

There is a point, however, where stumping for an obvious stinker begins to make the stumpers look bad. A huge Obama campaign budget could spread long lasting egg over the Democrat face.

That’s an awful royal statement. Too many here project their own specialized worldview onto larger America. Larger America, in the meantime, is already polling a virtual tie with the incumbent and a Mitt who hasn’t even gotten the official GOP nod. Historical experience says this is extremely bad juju for the incumbent.

“Washington had won the respect and trust of all of colonial America.”

Washington and most all of colonial America were made up of honorable men who were self reliant. Obama and his entitlement voters(about half the nation) are anything but honorable and seek to destroy the values this country was founded upon.

With due respect, and with the preface that I voted for Newt here in Georgia, this 'Obama only did on a national level what Mitt did in Massachusetts at the state level' doesn't really cut it with me.

My reading of the US Constitution, its founders' intent, and the many instances of each amendment stipulating that the Federal Government shall not.......et al, just reinforces my belief that the intent was to give STATES the power to decide their will, with many, many safeguards to them by capping and restraining the power of the Federal Government to infringe on the rights of states.

That said, if the blue blue state of Massachusetts wanted to hogtie their residents and cripple their futures, it is that state's right, provided they can pass muster through the USOC on review. It is not, however, Hussein's right to inflict that rights abortion on the rest of us without collective states rights' consent

The idea of Barack Obama prevailing, map or no, would require a larger masking perfume factory than any chemical plant owned by the Army. Barack STINKS and in a very crucial area that Mitt has a ready made case — the role of business in the economy. Barack was never a business man. It won’t be hard for Mitt to convince the great unwashed that as a business man, he knows. Most people now know that most jobs come from business.

I’ll stop here lest I be perceived as waxing poetic on Mitt’s behalf. Mitt is very troublesome and worrisome in many areas. He snuggles up to gays way too easily. But as a businessman, people will believe he knows business.

Understood; he’s hard to support.
But since 90+% of voters know which way they’re voting regardless of candidates, he need only sway less than 5% of voters ... or votes.
Remember, this is a guy who can, does, and will write very large checks with no concern about where the money is coming from. Anyone concerned about long-lasting egg will be handed a billion-dollar check to wipe it off with.

I think that is the real elephant in the living room that so many ignore. Any 18 year old, even one who is still trying to make it through high school or has dropped out and is dependent on his parents to put food on his plate and furnish a bed for him to sleep on is allowed to vote! This is the height of absurdity.

Some fear that, while being willing to derail Obamacare per se, Mitt will try to get Congress to replace it with inducements for states to duplicate from their end what Massachusetts did. That sounds like a hard sell to me, because it would only be replacing one profligate spending package with another, but never say never.

“Obama Has Already Lost”

Pipe dream.

He is not going to lose any Catholics, the so-called Independents will travel in left circles at the polls, and the ethnic groups who sniff at the hicks in flyover country will vote for The One in droves. (The Progressives are not a threat; it’s the members of the electorate who instantly become brilliant and superior when they think and vote Progressive.)

Obama has 95% of blacks and at worst 70% of white women. That’s at least 42% of the total electorate locked up in his favor and campaign fear-mongering will keep it that way. Not including Dem voter fraud and intimidation, he just needs to win over 8-9% of the remainder—which includes other minorities, x-gens/millenials and homo/metrosexual white males. Seems like that’s enough right there.

Historically, fence sitters have broken heavily for the challenger to the incumbent. The smallest caucus in the world are people who voted for McCain who now want to cast a ballot directly for Barack Obama.

Too many here are projecting their point of view upon larger America, which doggedly follows other political trends.

Thank you Gaffer, for pointing that out. Mitt had every right as a STATE Governor to pass such BS, so Obama can sure try to say “same thing” but it isn’t. Mitt can say “mine was Constitutional, yours isn’t.” That argument disappears.

I want to give my LAST CHOICE CANDIDATE Mitt one more accolade, but without my pompoms. We always complain we cannot get anyone to fight on our side, to really shove it. Newt was bringing it, but didn’t get there. Mitt has shown a hunger for the fight. If we can shove him to the right (assuming, of course he gains the nomination), he can de-pants Obama and even provide a sliver of coat tail, IF he’ll pick someone staunchly conservative as a Veep.

Please don’t ban me, Jim!

Everyone always knew that black people were a lock for Democrats. They are kept, at great pains, on the plantation.

Women, perhaps another story. As more women feel a need to have a presence in the workplace, a business minded Mitt may start to look better than a business sabotaging Barack. Also, the Democrats have already shot themselves in the foot with remarks about Mrs. Romney which garnered more sympathy for her than disdain for Mitt’s supposed “anti woman” sentiments.

If you regularly go to church on Sundays you are in the segment of Catholics who tend not to vote Democrat.

The cafeteria or Easter-Christmas Catholics are the ones who are easy pickings for Barack. And even a lot of them were consternated at Barack’s heavy handed reneging on his promise to respect Catholic conscience rights.

Even if I wanted to make a statement by voting a third party I would first want to be sure that my state wasn’t going to be anywhere close to on the line. If there would be a doubt I’d vote with the clothespin on my nose. I would have no quarrels with a Goode presidency (pun?) but it ain’t going to happen — the time to try to make a third party viable was years ago, and Obama would have been about as easy pickings as any in a long time.

“I am a Catholic and I have never voted for the Rat party and thier candidates and never will, and I know I am not the exception.”

One hopes that the majority of Catholics thinks (rather than “feels”) the same way.
