Who Said He Can't Be Beat in 2012?

To listen to some of the talking heads on radio and T.V. and some members of the main street media, it is a foregone conclusion that Barack Hussein Obama will win re-election in 2012. Is that conclusion based on fact or is it just wishful thinking? I think it is the latter.

In 2007 and 2008, in the run up to the 2008 election, Obama, with his huge election war chest and the slick phrase of “Hope and Change”, was able to “con” most of the voters into voting for him – and he prevailed by winning the election with a little more than 52% of the vote against a weak candidate, John McCain. Obama came out of nowhere without much vetting, with the exception of some talk show hosts and Fox News, and with that “Hope and Change” phrase, and with the Bush fatigue that prevailed after 8 years, he made it to the White House, much to the chagrin of Hillary Clinton, the once unbeatable candidate, and of course, the Republicans.

In 2007 and 2008 he didn't have much of a record to judge him on - even the fact that he was designated the “Most Liberal” Senator by a couple of Wash. D.C. pundit organizations, he got a pass, especially by the media who considered him their darling and heir apparent to the throne. Even today, we don't know much about him or his past (he finally produced his birth certificate after almost 3 years, some, after closer examination, claim it is bogus). He has proclaimed that he would be the most transparent president in history, but most of his educational background and school transcript records and his medical records are still hidden from scrutiny at his request. Why? Is there something he is hiding by refusing to grant permission to view these records? Is that the transparency he was referring to?

For the run up to the 2012 election, Obama has and will have a record as president to defend. With the condition the country is in, he might just have a real problem in getting re-elected. Our economy is in shambles and the U.S dollar has slumped to a record low, whatever economic indicator that should be up is down, and whatever economic indicator that should be down is up, more people are on food stamps than ever before, and it looks like there is no real end in sight, mostly due to Obama's economic policies, or lack thereof. How is he going to defend the indefensible, except by being disingenuous by telling people what they want to hear, but not what is actually the case? We should be out of this severe recession by now, but we seem to be stuck on stupid with a projected gain of 1% to 2% in GDP for 2011. The outlook for recovery has diminished to almost zero.

With gas rising above $4.00 per gallon, inflation raising its ugly head making the purchase of our food and clothing difficult to pay for, housing still in a depressive state around the country, and unemployment hovering around 9% (17% in real terms), is that a positive record to wax ecstatic about? Only a die-hard, Kool-Aid drinking Obama “idol worshiper” would think he deserves a second term. They have an advanced case of CRI (Cranial Rectal Inversion) and they can't be cured.

So when someone tells you that Obama can't be beat, tell that person to take off their rose-colored glasses and smell the coffee and open up their eyes and ears, and be honest with themselves and to look at what is happening in our country as we slowly sink into an economic and foreign policy abyss. I predict that Barack Hussein Obama will be a one-term president, Ala Jimmy Carter. Praise the lord!

Our "Panderer in Chief", Barack Hussein Obama, is in full campaign mode. He is appealing to all his special interest groups including gays, labor unions, hispanics, illegal aliens, blacks, and do-nothing government workers in order to get re-elected. He will promise them something for nothing in hopes that they will cast their vote for four more years of his destructive economic and foreign policies. He will say anything that he thinks you'll want to hear, but he'll do just the opposite and then deny he did it. Remember, as Chuck once said, "You can take the man out of Chicago, but you can't take Chicago out of the man".

The same Morons who keep telling us that we (Real Patriots) can't beat B. Hussein Obama are the people who told us we LOST the War!

This Community Organizer cares more for Illegal Aliens than he does for Legal Americans. He destroys our Country to help Drug Dealers and Child Traffickers from Mexico. Every red blooded American should be offended by this Chicago Thug

Remember in 2008, we had in the Democrat primary, Snow White (Hillary) and the Seven Dwarfs (Obama being one of the dwarfs who prevailed). Well, due to the financial meltdown in August 2008, and a weak candidate by the Republicans in John McCain, Obama with his $750 million war chest was able to win the presidency. Since he had a very sparse record and the "politically correct" skin color, and using very moderate political rhetoric (he was more conservative than McCain on some issues), he bamboozled the electorate into giving us four years of disastrous governance. We must not let that happen again. Once we get a candidate on the Republican ticket, we've got to bury any disagreements and support him/her with all our might. Let's go now and do the right thing!
