And that bunker is one of his own making.As for the video, whatever... move along with the snakeoil chump.Just about every leftist politician i've heard of has promised, hand on heart, on their mothers life that if they don't turn things around or deliver utopia you can have their resignation.Not a single one has delivered and not a single one has resigned as they promised, lying, thieving rats to the core.That banner you got on the side is the only hope you have, that enough Americans feel they need to prove they're not idiots in 2012.
Yeah, he turned a divot into a canyon...
According to THIS:The Wall Street Journal and NBC released a joint poll that shows 54 percent of respondents disapprove of the way President Obama is handling the economy, with 62 percent believing that the country is on the wrong track. 48 percent of respondents believe that Obama’s policies are “somewhat” responsible for the condition of the economy, while 34 percent believe his policies are “mainly or “solely” responsible.Typically, the American electorate will not re-elect an incumbent President when the economy is in the dumper.

I am convinced that even with an economic collapse, there is about 40% of the population that will vote for Obama no matter what. I've talked with several friends who are absolutely convinced that the talk of the bad economy is some kind of a Republican ruse or they think Obama's policies are on the edge of sending the American economy into roaring growth...we just have to give it more time because Bush messed it up so bad.It really flummoxes me that otherwise decent, seemingly intelligent people just cannot or will not see what is happening in front of their eyes. But those attitudes are out there. Yes, Obama COULD win even if the economy goes completely south. The Repubs have to put up someone with passion who can can offer realistic solutions and explain why Obama's policies are disastrous, in layman's terms. It's almost like the days of Noah, where the people did not understand until the flood waters took them away. If we get a patrician, blue blood establishment Republican (aka RINO), we are toast.
Alligator,I am convinced that even with an economic collapse, there is about 40% of the population that will vote for Obama no matter what.[...]It really flummoxes me that otherwise decent, seemingly intelligent people just cannot or will not see what is happening in front of their eyes.I know what you mean.My neighbor, a decent man in all respects except that he's a Democrat, still thinks Obama is wonderful and will vote for him again.Now, this neighbor of mine hasn't been touched by our ailing economy. His federal-government retirement check is still rolling in every month. Furthermore, he is convinced that the Health Care Reform Act is "a good start."I've noticed some changes in my neighbor since Obama got elected: he's less tolerant of any who express dissent to his own views. In the 33 years that I've known my neighbor, I've never seen him like this before.My neighbor is a staunch pacifist -- yet not one word about Obama's warmongering in Libya. Had a Republican President been attacking Libya, my neighbor would have had fits.Furthermore, my neighbor, ever since Obama's Cairo speech, thinks there is no threat from Islam -- even though my neighbor formerly frequently spoke of that threat.
MK,Yes, leftists say that they'll resign if they don't deliver utopia. Do they ever? Not in my recollection.
Silverfiddle,he turned a divot into a canyonYes, indeed. Why don't more Americans understand that fact?
Oh that cartoon at the top is so frustrating. Let's all pray her is only a one term president.DebbieRight Truthhttp://www.righttruth.typepad.com
The cartoon shows Obummer hacking and hacking and hacking away. He really is the living embodiment of the old saw that "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting the results to be different."
o gosh one term one term!!!
AOW - I know what you mean about those kind of people. Kind of a cult of personality develops around some political leaders. When that happens, people check their critical thinking at the door and the leader can do no wrong. To question their leader is to invite wrath from his followers. The extreme manifestation of the personality cult can be seen in any number of dictators in history. Even when everything is literally going down in flames and the folly is so plain a six year old can see it, the followers will pretend that nothing is wrong or "somehow" the dire straits are a temporary setback and not the leader's fault. You cannot have a reasonable, rational discussion with people like that. It's not politics anymore, it is a matter of faith - a defacto religion. I quit trying.
Here's the bad news. all the clown car party is talking about is the usual tinkle down supply side nonsense.Meanwhile, estimates indicate a growing number of mortgages underwater. If you don't stabilize the housing market, and Mitt the venture capitalist or the pizza man won't, then this economy stays in the toilet and deteriorates.Nice heh, damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Alligator,You cannot have a reasonable, rational discussion with people like that. It's not politics anymore, it is a matter of faith - a defacto religion.Yes, my neighbor is acting as if he belongs to the cult of Obama.In the past, I've rarely seen such such an attitude from my neighbor -- particularly his levels of anger directed towards those who disagree with his views. So far, he hasn't directed anger at ME; I'm not sure why.Now, I do recall my neighbor singing the praises of mass transit some years ago. Then, when Metrorail was finished, he wouldn't ride it -- not convenient enough for him.BTW, my neighbor is nearly 70 years old. He was more conservative in the 1980s, when he lost his job through no fault of his own and had to subsist on income about 25% less than he had made for years. Once he got a higher-paying job and a fancy house (a total rebuild), he moved left. Indeed, my neighbor has become quite elitist and very judgmental.
Duck,I know more some individuals who couldn't get any help for their mortgages from the Obama administration. They had missed a few payments, restarted the payments, and thus didn't qualify for help while, at the same time, the mortgage company held these individuals to the letter of the loan. I don't know their situation with regard to second+ mortgages.Honestly, I don't see how the government can stabilize the housing market. What would you propose? Be specific.
The action that would help is foreclosure regulation. Right now you have banks foreclosing on homes they don't even know they hold the mortgage on. Is this the province of government? Bankruptcy courts have ruled on this sort of contract for age. There is no reason it couldn't be done now. However, the right, much like right of center Obummer, is far too friendly with the banksters. They win, you lose. Or mayber you think Herman Cain is a populist.
Yep, bring on 2012, I really hope that this clown is kicked out with the same level of euphoria he was installed with. The world will be a much better and safer place for all of us when that happens.
What an appropriate and succinct graphic!
Duck,I've never mentioned Herman Cain at my web site. Still observing him and without a conclusion yet.The action that would help is foreclosure regulation. Isn't that already supposed to be happening? I thought that was supposed to be going on at the state level, anyway.
