Why he's falling apart
New York Daily News*, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/7/2012 6:20:14 AM

A presidential reelection campaign needs three key elements: a defense of the incumbent’s record, a successful effort to define the opposition and a compelling vision of a second term. President Obama may well celebrate a second term in Chicago next month, but the conventional wisdom underestimates the difficulty he faces, as his campaign has distinct problems with all three elements. His defense of his record is exceptionally weak, his effort to define Mitt Romney is nearly exhausted, and his vision for the next four years — perhaps the most important — has been largely missing from

Don't underestimate a narcissistic liar.

And don't underestimate the need for ungodly people (those that have no place in their lives for God or Godly values) to put their faith in one.

NY Daily News is solidly blue collar. Bad news for King Obeyme.

The real problem for a second obama term (highly unlikely now) is that interest rates on the national debt will probably start to go up. I don't think that has been factored in yet to the pain. The past 4 years will seem like a week at Disney World.

Interest rates have not helped with housing around my area of N.Mississippi. And, it has hurt people who depend on their savings not the government for their support. My Mom is 90 and her income dropped 60% due to cd's no interest. I will be sorry for first time home buyers if interest goes up but the whole fed corruption and political manipulation has to stop. Let the chips fall where they may.

I don't underestimate Obama, but recognize that his lack of core knowledge and management/strategic abilities is finally doing him in. This race is far from over, but he won't recover in debate land. He simply lacks the capacity to acknowledge his mistakes and there is really no time left for him to acquire the knowledge necessary to beat Mitt in a debate. It's like he's got finals and he hasn't been to class for four years.

When the fallout from the last four years hits the American public it will likely be after President Romney has been inaugurated. Guess who the media will blame for the downturn...not Obama.

FTA: In February 2009, even most Republicans would probably have predicted that by 2012, the country would be feeling much more prosperous, with much lower unemployment.

Not the Republicans who understood what Obama intended to do. The clues were there before the '08 election. When he told Joe the plumber he wanted to spread the wealth around, people should have realized that prosperity was not Obama's goal.

FTA:
Four years ago, Obama expressed great confidence that he would be running amid renewed prosperity; he famously told Matt Lauer, ''One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable. You know, I’ve got four years...If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.''

I have wondered about this comment of his to Matt Lauer ever since he made it.

We all know by now that leftists dissemble and are forever trying to redefine our language - what words mean. I could give myriad examples. So let's rethink the meaning of that sentence, ending with 'one-term proposition' perhaps the way HE INTENDED IT.

To us it sounds like, and we interpret it as, 'one term in office' ... no re-election. But that word 'proposition' bothers me.

What if - and I'm a big fan of the 'what if's' in life (you gotta prepare) - what if there's just something else coming down the pike from him/them. A proposition can also mean an idea, a proposal, or even, in lib-speak, a mandate.

My interpretation: If he didn't have the U.S. economy completely trashed in 3 years, then he/they'd have to come up with something else to keep him in place to finish completely destroying this country.

See where I'm going with this? The 'renewed prosperity' part of the first sentence is simply a lie. But then, that word 'renewed' bothers me.....

O the irony! Will Romney be allowed to blame Obama for the mess he inherited where the economy goes over the cliff with the taxes etc going into effect Jan 1 and the currency weakened by four years of printing money and irresponsible spending? My guess Romney will be held responsible within a month!

It's a simple answer....

There is no "there" in the man.....

He's been spun by his handlers all along, i.e. valerie jarret (the Iranian) and SOROS (the slippery).....

I was happy to hear 70 million viewers saw the debate. That means they saw a grown/up, i.e. President Romney debate a "child", obama, and verbally take him to the wood/shed....

I hope californians remember that when they pay $5.00 a gallon for gasoline. Perhaps they're like Illinois. WE are stuck with alllllllll demorats running everything and the only way out is ---------- OUT. Sell and move is the motto of lots of Illinoisans....

Interesting analysis of the "three key elements". Within the three elements, we have leadership, character, and judgment. Obie flunks the leadership, character, and judgment test as well.

Yes, Mitt knows he'll be blamed when things worsen but by then he'll have 1) unleashed the energy sector here 2) which will influence and drop ME oil prices 3) which will unburden much of our domestic cash 4) with a republican congress proceed to de-regulate and free US business 5) who will hire millions 6) bringing in billions of sidelined cash 7) creating millions of new taxpayers 8) whose tax revenues answer one half of our financial problem. The other half ( govt spending ) is the type of problem at which Romney realllllly excels.

Poster #10 is right. Romney will be blamed for everything; the MSM will see to that. Nevertheless, this country has to pull the stops on the boy king. What we will certainly see is if the democrats are willing to let the country collapse or if they will put politics aside and work toward real solutions. We are in need of some serious divine intervention if we think we can turn this thing around. If Romney wins, and I believe he will, this exceptional country will rise from the ashes like a phoenix. With God all things are possible.

Obama's not that into us. Never has been. And he has rejected any strategy based on basic economic principles, not understanding that in some ways they're like forces of nature. You can pretend they don't exist, but that won't stop the tornado from mowing through your home. We didn't build a storm shelter or buy insurance thanks to him. But we can make someone else buy our birth control pills. Yea!

Come on November.

For four years I've heard how the American people were so tired of George Bush and that's why obama easily beat JM. Are we not tired of obama after four years, especially since things are worse than they were when Bush was president all 8 years? obama should be getting beat like he stole something. He lies and people know he's lying. His fan club has to continually make excuses for him and continue to cover for him. He does nothing when our people are attack by terrorist Muslims. He's weak everywhere he turns and yet, he may get re-elected. If that happens, we deserve whatever he gives us. I say we because we're all in this whether we vote for him or not. If he's re-elected, I personally think it will signal God's continued judgment upon us, and if he's not, then I think it will be God's mercy. I may have doubts about Romney but he is the man for the economic mess we are in and obit is clearly in over his head. The choice is clear but if we as a nation choose wrongly, well, we get what we vote for.

Just remember it's really hard to defeat an incumbent - even a really bad one. We all know by now about the 1980 race where Carter had a small lead over Reagan as late as 1 week before the election. Will voters opt for 4 more years of this? Despite Obama's continual non-stop barrage of negative commercials and phony government reports, I think he has run out of steam.

No. 22 has it right. Don't think for one minute that you should stay home and not vote because you think there is no way he can win. If all the ones who think about Obama like I do get out there and vote, we may win but if we get complacent, we are in for a terrible next 4 years and maybe even longer as Obama is thinking like a dictator and that is what he wants. Lets not let him have it........

The free ride is over for the fraud in chief.

Just as an observer, I've had the feeling for awhile now, that he's not that enthused about winning, but merely going through the motions. He certainly knows what's coming up on the horizon, and how brutal the next four years are going to be. He figures get out now while his side still thinks he's terrific and let the next guy do the dirty work of cleaning up the economy. There's no doubt, he would rather he playing golf in Hawaii then having to make important decisions about matters he doesn't quite understand.

No. 16 said it best. If he wins, I'm confident Romney has the foresight to put in place whatever measures he has to to get the country working again. The world is watching & waiting for us to LEAD again. When the U.S. makes a start at getting back on track, a lot the world's confidence will come back to us. Nothing will get solved without a U.S. economy that is firing on all cylinders. I would even add - slash the corporate tax rates & watch a lot of business move back to our shores. If little old Agnes knows it, you can be sure that Romney knows it!

I read these articles and I pray this is correct and the vast majority will vote for Romney. Not that I like all of what Romney stands for but he "appears" to be honest and care about others while the President has "proven" to be dishonest. Now I read in the morning paper the President raised $1 billion for the election campaign again! Where is that cash coming from? Not here. In the last cycle Visa and MasterCard had thousands of credit cards issued, by their own admission, and each had a donation of $199 sent to candidate Obama. Why was this never investigated? Corruption Chicago style and "dishonest"!

I go back and forth on the general stupidity of the American public, probably because the margins are so close. Still, I'm beginning to believe/hope that enough people have had their eyes opened by the staggering failure of Fauxbama that there will be a Romney victory. The ever diminishing credibility of the msm helps raise my hopes for our country's salvation as well.

I think that the poll numbers showing the closeness of the election, with the incumbent ahead is based on internal polling data. I think it shows a very depressed base on the D side that is showing a reluctance to show at the polls. They just aren't buying what O is selling but wouldn't cross over, so they will stay at home. The only way to keep it close is to plant a seed of closeness so that R's will think that after everything going on, there may be a reelection, get depressed and stay home as well, giving O a better chance.

Yes, Obozo is falling apart. To those of us that take the time and effort to educate ourselves to what is going on in the country and the world at large, it's very evident. But what really bothers me is the sheer number of Americans who DON'T keep up on all these things. They are just concerned about their own getting by and have no interest in what might be happening elsewhere. And, these people still get to vote. And usually vote for those who promise them the most "stuff" that they don't have to pay for. After all, it will be paid for by taxing "the rich".

Mr 0blamer has proven that he has no clue or desire to improve the economy. As a creature of the entitlement culture who hasbeen given a leg up in every part of his life, he thinks everything is free.
He abnd the democrat party fail to see the 2010 election as a complete repudiation of his socialist ideals. So their only election opportunity is to lie and vilify Mr Romney in an attempt to change the subject from a completely failed presidency.
Or maybe it is a planned campaign to destroy our economy and our nation to achieve Mr Kruschevs "we will bury you".

In California, I am voting because of Proposition 32. It is a start to limit union power in how union dues will be collected from union members. That's why it's being opposed by the CTA, SEIU and other unions here. I conceded that Romney will lose Ca. I am voting for him anyway as a sort of conscience vote.

If Romney wins the economy will take off almost immediately, don't fear a bad economy being blamed on Romney. The only reason it has been so dismal (other than having a Socialist President) is because of business uncertainty, always the hope that government will be returned to adults and a more favorable business climate. If that happens in November, business will take off very soon afterward. The reverse if Obama is reelected.

That is because of the TELEPROMPTER. Obama HAS to be fed the answers...He is a great Orator, but not a great thinker.

That is why he is an empty suit, he doesn't make the decisions, he just talks about things. The perfect puppet !!!

Valerie Jarrett is the one that is actually running the Country!

It would be interesting to see who are the ones that actually are typing in the words on that teleprompter ???????

fta - "..a successful effort to define the opposition..."

Bain, tax returns etc. have gained no traction. The laundry list of debate excuses includes something that may -- Romney is a liar. A concept so simple and demagogic that his sad army of fools can grasp it. And by labeling Romney a liar, the false extension Obama doesn't lie.

Should Romney win, as others note, he'll be hated and hamstrung before he sets foot in the White House.

#34, I wondered Obozo's last election where all that small money was coming from since supposedly they came from small donors. Now, he pulls this crap again with the economy worse and people even poorer. MC and VISA should be hauled before congress and find out if these cards were bought individually or if they were bought in bulk. I don't think how big or how small the donation to election, they should all be exposed to the light of day. This is a controlling legal authority! It is called, WE THE PEOPLE!

In Obama's second term, Obama said that he wants to eliminate the "Bush tax cuts" for all taxpayers earning over $250,000 and make the rich "pay a little more". He also said that the he would leave the "Bush tax cuts" in place "next year" for middle class and working class families earning under $250,000.

During the debate Obama acknowledged that "making the rich pay a little more" will never support his government spending objectives or eliminate the deficit. So it is fair to figure that once Obama is safely re-elected, that he will then push for the complete elimination of the "Bush tax cuts" for everyone who pays taxes in the following years. That alone would amount to a big tax increase for the middle class and working class families.

Anyone who has been around for awhile knows that politicians whose mission in life is to raise taxes always start with "the rich paying a little more" and then move on down and attempt to raise taxes on middle class and working class families, as those population groups are where the vast majority of Americans who actually do pay taxes are financially situated, and therefore from where most new tax revenue can be obtained.

Don't underestimate the power of the American Main Stream Media.
They will do anything & everything to keep their empty suit in office.

Why? Because he vaguely promises them:

A greener planet while
Making oil fuel obsolete;
Gay marriage;
Bringing all our troops home from the war;
Robbing from the (eeeevil) rich to give to the poor;
We'll be oh-so-fair to the misunderstood muslims, thus
Keeping us out of being attacked by making them like us.

This all makes perfect sense to the Liberal Left. It's suicide for this great nation, but they haven't a clue. Their hearts/hang ups blind them to the truth that there is evil in the world & it's not oil. It's Muslim terrorism, not corporate greed that we must be strong enough to fight.

I thought I saw the entire Democrat congressional delegation this weekend.

Turned out I was in a Joseph A. Banks store looking at the suit rack.

Several have commented that Romney will inherit an economy that is genuinely worse than that 0bama says he got. I believe that, given his personal record, Governor Romney is looking forward to demonstrating that his 25 years of success have equipped him to correct the situation before 2014. The key, of course, is can he find cooperation "across the aisle"?
So- we need voters to pull the party lever, not just the one for president.

#5, you are so right. If Romney wins, the media will blame Romney when the inevitable severe downturn or collapse happens. The bright spot is that Romney will be President, and able to do something, unlike Barry, who will sit sucking his thumb and saying mean things about capitalism.

Keep in mind that the Libs are in defense mode now. They are lowering our expectations for the next debate so much that if 0 manages to string together two coherent sentences in a row they will be yelling "He's back"!

By now they are all yelling at each other for their public reactions to the fiasco and figuring out how to put the clothes back on the phony emperor.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. But above all vote like your life depends on it...

FTA: "Once Romney came across as knowledgeable, clear and deeply concerned about the state of the country, the entire vilification campaign of summer and early fall looked shaky and less convincing." Shaky? Less convincing?

Go ahead and just say it Jim: the vilification campaign has now exposed as patently and ridiculously false, in front of 60 million people. The prospects for Obama to fare better in the next debate are slim to none. The man is a flim-flam artist who has been thoroughly exposed as the fraudster he is. He'll probably get nasty next time, but Mitt will be prepared for that.

Romney even likened Obama to his five sons trying to peddle lies when they were boys! Obama didn't have an answer for that either. How could he have? It's undeniable and clear for all to see. That's why the lefties are melting down - they know it's true and they have nothing meaningful left to say.

#22 is right on. He will be reelected because he has many stupid Americans on his dole i. e. free cell phones. The electorate is generally so stupid that don't even connect the dilemma we are in with Øbama. If it gets close they will cheat. The US is finished.

The Mulatto Kid is the poster child for the three Es: Empty Chair, Empty Suit and Empty Head.

Too bad that the Empty Head also describes the stupid voters who think their free phones, reworked mortgages and part-time jobs are from the same Empty Chair. They have no conception of how government works or they wouldn't vote for the Mulatto Kid again.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff
and Attitudes Toward the State

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Spotlighting a law that stripped
U.S.-born women of citizenship

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

Russian Regular Forces To Invade

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
