Pop-star president´s
power already dissipating

Washington Examiner [DC], by Conn Carroll

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/30/2012 5:39:38 AM

"The organization doesn´t exist without belief in the candidate," White House senior adviser David Plouffe told Politico after November´s election. "They turned out for Barack Obama. It was all because of him." "All because of him." That comment may sting the hundreds of Democratic candidates who spent countless hours working on their own campaigns, but it is also probably true. Obama is a fantastically popular political figure whose personal connection with voters led to record turnout among many demographics. But Obama´s appeal probably will not last much beyond 2016, if it even lasts that long.

I doubt seriously they turned out for this clown. More like they voted without knowing.

This reinforces my belief that a charismatic charlatan can fool some of the people some of the time, but once the Ear Leader, the TelePrompTer Of The United States is not out to pontificate with the reverb while turning his head from side to side, is no longer on the ballot, you´re not gonna see the turnout for the Hildabeest [even if she slims down and buys a bottle of Prell].

As noted, Katy Perry isn´t gonna wear that skintight dress for unemployment benefit extensions [but I can dream, can´t I?]

The worst part of this whole situation is the far left used to be a minor contingentof the desm and now they´ve taken over the entire party which means it´s highly unlikely they throw Obamaoverboard,no matter how much worse he and the country gets.To me,there´s no question Obama would have lost if he was a hite liberal,so his race is what really saved him more than anything.The left also worships the fact that Obama is willing to spend any amount of money so even if they don´t get anything in the short term,there´s always tomorrow.

The republicans have now been universally labelled the party of obstruction,the protectors of the super rich,religious zealots and gun nuts.

Minorities used to be somewhat containable in general elections but so many are being waved in now,it´s almost impossible to keep up with the numbers. What fascinates me is black turnout went up in 2008 and 2012 despite the growth rate on blacks being flatlined for quite a while now.

Then you have the emerging group think people coming out of HS and into college for even more brainwashing,all paid for by you and me.

Well, you have the supporters who have been dumb-downed by pop culture, the supporters who get their voting orders from their unions, the supporters who enjoy their crony capitalism, the supporters who want to save the planet and kill the unborn, the supporters who vote for him because it is cool, the supporters who support gay marriage, the supporters who are black, hispanic, and Asian, the supporters who are Jewish, the supporters who are Muslims, and the supporters who rabidly agree with his political philosophy. I don´t see any of the aforementioned groups bailing on him. Even when the economy tanks, the media will make sure that the Republicans get the blame. Obama could eat a dead baby on live TV, and his supporters would glowingly comment on his exquisite table manners.

As long as he has the lapdog media on his side there will be diminishing of his power.

Along with the msm he has the talk show taliban trashing our guys 24/7.

Following the election rather than pointing out the deficiencies of this administration all our effort went on trashing our own.

Thanks for nothing. By excoriating Boehner you made it nearly impossible for him to negotiate with the maoist.

The first paragraph says Obama is fantastically popular and has a great personal connection. These are ridiculous statements though they´ll help sell the false narrative especially by an alleged conservative. Carroll has recently shown signs of Beltway addiction, ie that he believes what Beltway media believe. First, it´s not true. Whatever connection people have for him is strictly that which has been sold 24/7 by the media or chit chatting on the view. In other words they know nothing about him, have no idea how much worse he´s made their lives. His popularity consists of the media, 70 percent of all single women, most people under the age of 30, most blacks, most public sector union members, most career academics, and some Beltway GOP such as John Boehner. These same people would believe any far left candidate was good. As long as Fox News exists and and has Bush people guarding the door, we´ll be prevented from getting the candidate we need to win.

Popular? I just don´t get it. But then what´s not to love, he´s lazy, arrogant, spends our money like there is no tomorrow, has communist style dictator tendencies. leans toward the Muslim brotherhood, and likes his male friends who are in touch with their feminine side. Maybe we will run for president again, who knows with this guy.

´They´ didn´t come to vote for him. They came to defend their free ride on the gravy train. A majority of the voters clearly possess an infantile preference for dessert over spinach. Zippy has always been cunning enough to recognize and exploit that and his opponents have been uniformly obliging.

He got 6MM fewer votes than last time, even with the cheating and stuffing.

The whole thing is surreal. A nightmare.

Something was wrong with the vote tabulation on the Republican side.

This article may be right if you are Black. But it´s unlikely the Democrat Party will offer another Black candidate when Obama´s term is up. That will change voter turnout in Black communities quite a bit.
As far as the rest of those who voted for him, they are mindless lemmings whose brains have been conditioned by the media and marketing. People who say, "he´s a nice man". Where do they get that? They don´t know him. They know nothing about him. They bought what the media was selling, this time it was Obama, like they would the latest kitchen gadget or jewelry from QVC.
The media has portrayed him as famous, caring, cool, hip, anti-rich, articulate, smart, fighting for equality, a loving family man, healthful, fit, youthful and whole host of other positive things that the media knew would they could sell to the public. He is none of these things. He is a lying, narcissistic, Marxist, politician who puts himself and his cronies about America. If he were still in Africa, and had the opportunity, he would be another dictator while the people of his nation starved to death.

Someone in the Obeyme campaign saw the untapped voters who simply don´t bother or care to vote. New technology found a lot of them and used extended voting to literally drag them to the polls. Free phones, anyone?

It took 100,000 ´volunteers´ and paid staff, a month in some cases, but it paid off in the swing states.

Certainly some blatant voter fraud, but even John Fund hasn´t sounded that alarm post election. Mostly this soft fraud/bribery/coersion, IMHO.

Thanks God for off-year elections, but RNC peeps better take notice, because Obeyme´s paid staff will try to turn out as many as they can in 2014. The author predicts it won´t work without Obeyme on the ticket, but we can´t take that for granted.

There is hope - over the holidays I had some of my lib relatives in & I braced for lots of "I-toldja! We won! We run things from now on!" and I didn´t hear ANY of it. Even my rabid lib SIL seems rather subdued by current events because despite BO´s re-election, her prospects haven´t improved & she knows that her taxes are going up. She even politely asked my advice about a business venture she is considering. I think it is a good sign when a lib (who works PT in the education field) considers going into business for herself. I can think of no better way to get a convert to conservatism!

Republican candidates for any office have to be willing to defend conservatives and take the media jackals and liberal machine head on. Newt had the right idea, just too much personal baggage. I don´t see this person on the horizon yet. Michelle Bachman is closest. But the Mr. Nice Guy strategy clearly isn´t working and the RINO contingent in the party who think they have the right to choose the candidates needs to be eliminated. I don´t look for any blowouts in 2014. They haven´t learned their lesson yet which is rather clear by the ridiculous negotiating they are doing with Obama.

#12 Amen.
The armchair Congressmen on the right ( Limbaugh , his mini me Hannity , Levin and Ingraham ) who are too lazy and don´t have the guts to actually run for office,
have consistently run down and belittled Republicans and our nominee since GHW Bush .
Their goal is to keep their audience , not promote conservatism or Republicans , so they must keep both the left and the right in a state of constant agitation , which Limbaugh has been doing for 20 years.
He hated GHW Bush, Bob Dole, George W Bush , McCain and Romney .
In fact, in February 2008, Limbaugh told Howard Kurtz in an interview ( " Limbaugh on McCain : It´s Better To Be Right All The Time " ) that if McCain became our nominee, he hoped that Obama would win the election.
Limbaugh rarely gets his facts straight nor does he keep his audience properly informed .
Prager, Hewitt , Bennett and some others are
much better hosts and light years more grounded and informative.
The constant attacks on Boehner from the right wing talkers, many of them based on falsehoods
and ignorance , only help Obama.
And their ratings.
FOX News is too much fluff and can´t compete with the
24 /7 agitprop coming from the powerful MSM.
The reports of it´s death were obviously premature .

Obama isn´t really up to the job, but sure likes campainging.

Start to focus on things like those $90K jobs in oil field in South Dakota, and how they can be replicated in places like California.
How half of our children aren´t even going to college so where are the good jobs for them? And how the liberal Democrats are stoping them thru their friends in the environmental law.

Start chipping away at the edges and appealing to these new revenue streams that would pay for teachers, police and fire that the Democrats are against.

Lord Monckton wrote..... paraphrased here....´.Obama was elected by an illiterate society´. This was also written in the Russian newspaper Prava, Nov. 26, 2012.

In 2009 Vladimir Putin said...´America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake´.

Perhaps we can overcome the damages this president has done/will do, but how can we overcome the damages done by an illiterate, apathetic society?

No. 4 and 9. Exactly. 26 states contracted with a company in Spain to count the votes electronically. Votes were transmitted to Spain, ´counted´, and the fake results sent back to the U.S. Anyone who thinks that those who gave us the Kennedy assasination through fast and furious to Benghazi gate are not capable of this massive fraud then I submit that Kennedy was not shot but died instead of a massive stroke.

Since our democratized republic is well along the path to failure, the only thing left might be to prepare for the political upheaval that will be necessary to wrest control from the uninformed, dead, non-existent, or bloodsucking unproductive voters that have triumphed the last few cycles. No matter how charismatic a leader we get on the conservative side, the power corrupted media will destroy them in the eyes of the aforementioned. I am sorry to say so, but I don´t see a pleasant or "democratic" way out of this. Studying history, it appears to me the last bastion of hope for our survival lies in our ability to protect ourselves and our families, an ability under attack as we speak.

I´m with 12 and 25. We, ourselves, have weakened Boehner´s hand with our scorn and lack of support. We want our representatives to do wonders for us and when they can´t we wash our hands of them and refuse to donate to the RNC until they can. I hope the ones I am talking about enjoy what they have done when we lose the House of Representatives.

Just got done with family holidays. No one is on the "take". Obamas are respected by parental levels and adored by newly politicized teen relatives - Michelle is worshiped so much that, frankly, even beyond politics, it´s a little creepy.

The following article is his remembrance of actress Ava Gardner.I was deeply saddened by the death of Ava Gardner. At one time, I guess I was about as close to her as anyone outside her immediate family.

Nothing to see here folks, move along. That was the verdict of Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Evans on the latest “performance artist” to plunge the city in turmoil.

Of course not.

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying.

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
