Obama’s failed presidency
The Hill ^ | June 26,2012 | Dick Morris

Posted on 06/27/2012 6:27:02 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Particularly if the Supreme Court invalidates the individual mandate at the heart of the ObamaCare law, this president’s tenure is increasingly going to be seen as an unmitigated failure

The economy is in a shambles and getting worse. The national debt is bloated. The stimulus didn’t work. His healthcare reform law, his signature program, might be unconstitutional. He tied the nation up for a year and a half, and lost his party’s House majority and much of its margin in the Senate, to pass and defend a law that was so poorly written, it could get thrown out by the court. He might be cited for contempt of Congress.

He hasn’t delivered on his environmental commitments. Cap-and-trade is a dead letter. Gov. Scott Walker’s victory in Wisconsin makes a mockery of Obama’s pledge to strengthen organized labor during his term. American popularity around the globe is lower than it was under Bush, and both Iran and North Korea are more threatening

His speeches, once inspirational, now sound hollow. His tone, once uplifting, now is partisan and harsh. His demeanor was once unruffled and his voice calming. These days he often appears rattled and off balance. He ran a relatively gaffe-free campaign in 2008 (the encounter with Joe the Plumber excepted). But in 2012, he can’t seem to do anything right. He attracted vast amounts of money in piling up a 2-to-1 financial advantage over McCain. But this year, he admits he will be outspent.

To win, Obama needs a phenomenal turnout among downscale voters. He’s not going to get it. There is no enthusiasm for him among his base. Nobody can be inspired by his record of failure. Democrats are increasingly voting with their feet, staying home during his coming convention and distancing themselves from the top of the

Morris seems pretty confident. but the problem with Dick Morris is that next week he could panic and change his mind about all of this for unknown reasons even to him. I used to follow him and got exhausted.. lol

I honestly think Morris is just telling people what they want to hear when he talks about a Romney landslide.

Despite being the worst President in the history of our country, the Kenyan should be favored in his quest for a second term.

Demographics and the entitlement class make it impossible for any Republican to ever win in landslide fashion again. If Romney wins, it is going to be with a margin similar to GWB’s in 2000.

I don’t think he is going to get it. Blacks and Hispanics are going to vote overwhelmingly for Baraq again, and there will be enough whites out there who will pull the lever for him again as well.

Obama by 4 or 5 points come November. True economic collapse to follow by March 2013 — Bush’s fault of course.

Bush is like a baseball manager who finished 60-102 in his last season. Obama got a 4 year contract, and the best he ever did was win 66 games. For a team used to winning the pennant. Nobody is going to give him another 4 year contract.

The white guilt suckered Americans will not be suckered again, but the Marxist media and education system continue to intemidate and brainwash the public.
America will continue to fall, even if RINO Romney wins, but the country will be in very serious trouble if Obozo wins another term.

My prediction: By the end of July it’s going to be clear to all but the totally blind that Bork (Obunga) has zero shot at this thing and the dems are going to heave his butt under the bus and Stenny Hoyer is going to run for president in November. You heard it here first.

Failure is an ambiguous term when it comes to Democrat Presidents. For example, you could say that Clinton was successful when he pushed thru the largest tax increase in the history of the world, or when he vetoed medicare reform, or when he won the impeachment trial. But a lot of folks would say that those things were all disasters. And Obama was successful in pushing thru Obamacare, but Obamacare is a disaster, so maybe he actually failed.

While the left and the middle vacillate over Obama’s failed regime the right would crawl through broken glass to vote against this Marxist fool. It’s looking like a real blowout in November.

Too bad we don’t have a decent Republican to vote for though.

To: se_ohio_young_conservative; All

The Arizona Ruling by THE NINE SUPREMES (actually 8) has proven that we no longer have a US Constitution.

Hence, it is pointless to talk about a Court Dictate on Obama”care” being anything but a dictate of the polarized Court.

We also have a Rogue Dictator, and a Rogue Obama-Rifles Attorney General Leader.

Preference is not the issue. What the Court has already Dictated on Obama”care” will be the issue.

The further destruction of the US Constitution is the most probable dictate that the Court will hand down on Thursday, as this will be the last dictate of this past year, and hence they cowardly will release their worst dictate on their last day in session.

Since Obama”care” of ANY sort will financially destroy America, our options are limited to Congressional ABOLISHMENT of all of Obama”care,” or for we, the people, to begin the tedious process of convening peaceful State Constitutional Conventions, and splitting the former USA into multi-State Regions.

For almost 80 years we have been saddled with the failed Keynesian Economic System. It has bankrupted the US Federal Government.

The derivatives of the WW2 Wage and Price Control Dictates are as follows: Medicare, Medicaid, Romney”care” and Obama”care.”

All of these vote-buying gimmicks are funded by debt created by the failed Keynesian Economic System.

Currently this Debt is charged to those who cannot vote: our Grandchildren’s future descendants.

This Debt is the Federal Grandchildrens Tax, or FGT, to distinguish it from the FIT, or Federal Income Tax, which only 51 % of us are required to pay.

The Silent Majority is silent no more.

There will be additional calls for State Constitutional Conventions if the Republicans try to preserve or retain ANY of Obama or Romney”care.”

Obama”care” is the Death Knell for America. It must be ABOLISHED FOREVER if America is to survive.

If Obama”care” does survive, then I favor Regional Areas/Republics of the former United States of America. I think the States that the XL Pipeline will run through makes excellent sense for one Region, called The Texas Region. The Mississippi Region would be those States that the Mississippi River runs through. Pacific and Atlantic Regions are obvious, as are the Rocky Mountain States.

In this way people could vote with their feet and move to a greater or lesser degree of personal Liberty.

The Great Experiment of forcing the United States of America back into the European Feudal System began with FDR’s Social Security System and will end in failure with Obama”care.”

There is no need for armed conflict, as we have already tried that horrific method with our bloody Civil War.

Just peacefully hold State Constitutional Conventions, split up the former USA into multi State Regions, and then hold Fourth of July “Remember When Days” once a year, as we thank our lucky Stars that we in NO WAY are like Europe.

If we were a Nation of Laws, we could survive.

We, instead, have become a Nation of Lawyers, and thus survival is not possible.

Lawyers do not obey the laws, they just change their interpretation of the laws to suit themselves. For example, “Remember the Arizona Law!” would make an appropiate State Constitutional Convention poster.

During the State Constitutional Conventions and split up of the former USA, we need to designate a multi-State Region just for Lawyers. They could then Keynesian themselves to their hearts content.

The Region that I will choose will be based on “The Invisible Hand” of Samuel Adams’ Free Market, with NO safety net.

Think it over, as it will take years to complete all of the State Constitutional Conventions.

Thus, we have time to plan to do it RIGHT, (pun intended), and throw the Liberal cartons of useless Tea millstones back into the Sea of European Feudalism/Socialism that they so richly deserve.

We must design our Multi-State Regions/Republics so that the disaster of RINO-morphing, and creeping Keyneism does not occur again.

Without an effective Check and Balance System each Multi-State Region/Republic will not survive, as has been proven in the present USA by the efforts of RINO-Democrat-Liberal Agenda Media “Triangle of Doom” that we have today.

There is still hope if we can DUMP Romney by having the Delegates vote to ABSTAIN on the first Ballot in Tampa.

If Romney becomes the Nominee, Obama wins big in November, just like he did against Lame-Brain McCain in 2008, and it will be GAME ON Time for us FReepers here in the former USA.

BTW, I’m dusting off my Tri-Cornered Hat, will dig out my copies of The Federalists Papers, and for Patriotic Flair, may even make a few quill pens!

Let us build a more perfect Union! Long live the Second Republic of TEXAS!

____________

BTW, BTW, to the BIG BROTHER Lurkers: save your expensive Obamadrones for the continuous, and now SCOTUS-approved, invasion of the Mexican Drug Lords into Southern Arizona.

We will be no bother to you as we will be more peaceful, and more patriotically joyful than a GSA Convention in Las Vegas when we hold our many State Constitutional Conventions.

Y’all come by now, hear?

OBama will not get over 42-43% of the popular vote, and that’s only if he runs a flawless campaign, reality is, he’s running such an amateurish joke of a campaign that if it keeps up he won’t even get 40% of the vote come november.

It makes me so angry that the SOB and the rest of the ‘Rats wasted a year shoving this garbage down our throats.

I remember the Sunday afternoon that they passed it. I wanted to shove that giant gavel through Pelosi’s forehead as she strutted through the Tea Party crowd with on her way to the Capital to vote for this atrocity.

The Dems were saying “FU” to 60% of the country that day.

synopsis:

Pentagon and military insider Drake has announced, tonight 6/27/12 at approximately 8:30PM, that the long anticipated green light has been given and the military and law enforcement alliance known to the people as the ‘Earth Allies’ will now move in within a time frame of 72 hours to begin the world wide sweep and mass arrests of thousands of members and associates of the criminal organization known as the ‘cabal’. For those unfamiliar with this action, these arrests will free, once and for all, all of humanity from their dark captures who have conspired to bankrupt, sicken and finally imprison every human being on the planet.

All citizens are advised to pick up a week or so worth of food, water and all necessary provisions as some store closures and utility outages are possible. All citizens are also advised to withdraw from their financial institutions enough cash to last at least a week, and preferably up to three weeks, as certain banks are expected to close their doors, rendering credit and debit cards useless for at least a certain period of time. All citizens are advised to remain calm and within a centered emotional state. All citizens are strongly urged not to riot or engage in any violent actions of any kind.

Military units and law enforcement personnel will be witnessed making these arrests throughout the United States as well as in some other parts of the world, and all are advised to understand that these men and women are working in service to their brothers and sisters, to freedom, to constitutional government and to love. These military and law enforcement units are not moving in to arrest the citizens of their respective countries as some media outlets may erroneously report in the early stages of this far ranging operation. These units are engaging in the arrests of the members of the criminal cabal and their many associates, that is all.

All are advised to stock their homes with the basic necessities and also advise as many family members and friends what to expect and what these arrests will mean to the people of this world who have suffered too long under the oppression of these criminals and their dark agenda of power and control. This day has been a long time coming, and all are advised to celebrate as these arrests are televised world wide as a signal to our brethren that this is not more of the same bad news we have been programed to believe is the only form of news. This is a time to celebrate, and the celebrations will continue through the July 4th holiday, which will be a true celebration of independence for the people of the U.S. and all the people of our world.
