Skip to comments.Get ready for Obama's BIG BOUNCE: Oklahoma
Posted on 05/20/2013 2:40:01 PM PDT by Toespi
AF1 is getting fired up. Add another devastating, crushing event to the list that saves Obama. Hurricane Sandy, Sandy Hook, Jodi Arias verdict during Benghazi hearing, etc....now the Oklahoma devastation.
OK is NOT OBOZO COUNTRY. He did not carry a single county in OK in either presidential election. NOT 1.
They are very proud of that fact, as they should be.
It’s bad of me to say, but that’s the first thing I thought of. All these tornadoes will take the WH scandals off the headlines.
Will the liberals thank God for this “distraction”? They have no shame.
Obama will go there to be sure the Golf courses are being kept.
Agreed. I would tell him to take his accursed self back to whatever part of Hades from which he originated.
Actually, we can start with the 2008 presidential campaign. Ironically, the great financial collapse happened weeks before the election. The economic devastation enabled Obama, to 1) get elected 2) pass every item on his anti-american agenda. This was just the beginning. For his reelection in 2012 he got Hurricane Sandy. It might also be noted that 2012 was the second highest year for natural disasters. Number one was 2005 Katrina, and we know how the democrats played that event for all it was worth.
I am beginning to believe that. Ever since Damien Thorn took office this nation has going downhill. How much will we continue to tolerate this Kenyan?
That is the Democrat rallying cry. Alinsky tactic at it's finest.
Obama trots out the Sandy Hook parents for a photo op.
East coast hurricane, photo op.
Libyan ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other brave Americans return in caskets, photo op.
We have a do nothing jet setting president that to his own admission either doesn't have a clue whats really going on or he is a liar.
Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina called it early. Obama is a liar !
That’s a sick puppy to take advantage of people’s suffering like that to gain approval points in the polls.
It’s sick in the way they use these disasters to take advantage of people’s suffering to gain approval points in the polls.
A little while ago, Fox announced that Obama is getting “updates” on the situation, thankfully the same advisor that informed him during the Boston terrorist attack is keeping him informed. (I hope its not the same one responsible for benghazi updates.). Big Sis has called the governor and offered her support.
Obama’s Tornadogate scandal ? him taking advantage of people’s suffering to improve his standings in the polls ? and wag the dog moment to push away those other scandals ?
Holder was found in contempt by Congress. Our side did what it was supposed to do. You think Holder hasn't been weakened? He certainly wasn't exonerated and now Issa has him in the crosshairs yet again on the AP phone record snooping
ABC is coming out with crap on the IRS in Cincinnati, and how they were escorted around by a "minder" -- exposing the fact that IRS employees are terrorized themselves. Bob Sheiffer of CBS is pissed about Benghazi and the fools that Obama made of them with Susan Rice and the "video" lies. Chris Matthews at MSNBC is starting to express his own misgivings - Stephanopolis marveling at the non-responses
And all people like you can seem to write is crap like this: "...but the MSM will be looking for any excuse to move on...."
If all you are is a handwringer, Obama wins. If we get behind our guys and cheer them on when we see progress instead of pissing all over them because we don't think it is fast enough, maybe the case they need to build steadily, carefully, and accurately will be incontrovertible at just the right time to coincide with the 2014 election in a way that is meaningful for winning.
If we get behind our guys and cheer them on
How did the GOP treat the Tea Party? It marginalized them at every opportunity. And then re-elected the hapless Boehner to Speaker again (even the Dems had to be shocked at that one). There are precious few Republicans, like Issa and Cruz for instance, who actually stand for something. If Republicans start playing to actually win (for a change) then I’ll join you in cheering them on.
As far as the media is concerned, never forget that they are dyed in the wool liberals. When have they ever supported anything championed by Republicans?
And sometimes cheering just doesn’t work. Only tough love and demanding high standards do.
Yesterday's news. The IRS scandal has the possibility of finally uniting efforts of GOPe with Tea Party in a way where Tea Party are credibly seen as having earned their chops as the message spear carriers, not just as contrarians. The Tea Party: perceived as the fighters on the front line with the IRS that has a way of reaching into the mind of every household where the "us vs. them" lines can clearly be drawn -- and the GOP collectively ad credibly seen as the party aggressively leading a charge the People can actually believe in.
Tea Party is in the position of co-opting the GOPe, because the GOPe now has someone -- an "everyman" -- out front to take the hits while they coordinate the fund raising to keep it all going.
If Republicans start playing to actually win (for a change) then Ill join you in cheering them on.
Well then read this and get on board for a change.
Issa Warns Hillary "A May 8 hearing on Benghazi was probably Issas biggest success yet as chairman. In closed-door meetings with chairmen of other committees, he has attributed the success to careful planning and urged his colleagues to take their time with investigative hearings."
Notice that Issa is setting the stage and this takes time that you appear to be too impatient to accord him. He has whistle blowers depositioned already. Trey Gowdy, who you seem to have forgotten about entirely, is a pit-bull no nonsense former prosecutor who has the skill to tear Hillary a new one on the back side of having key-witness testimony in the pocket.
Boehner's not just talking people losing jobs anymore, he's actually talking jail-time for perps. He's been weak in our opinions before, but this is getting a head of steam that you folks in the hand-wringing crowd simply refuse to acknowledge.
It's about time you started cheering some of these folks on, and if you can't bring yourself to do it, just get out of the way, so the rest of us can.
I was on board but the train was going in the wrong direction so I got off.
you folks in the hand-wringing crowd
We're not hand-wringing, we're looking to do some hand-slapping. It's time the GOP start promoting the interests of real conservatives. They want our money and our votes, but don't want our principles.
just get out of the way
So constructive criticism is not welcome, only cheer leading? That's a scary thought you're promoting there my friend.
