A Desperate Obama

Republicans can rejoice and democrats can start to face up to the truth - the Obama ship is taking on water. Barry and Michelle are on the campaign trail, trying to drum up some of that old obama enthusiasm. Will it work? Well they may have forgotten one thing. When they did it two years ago, it was all based on myth and fantasy and the media was able to hide or downplay most of the facts. Now the facts of obama's performance are bigger than life and staring Americans in the face. The first two years have left no doubt that this leftist liberal agenda introduced by obama and everyone he has picked is totally destructive of the country, and that destruction is by design. The anti-Americanism message has not changed much from the 1970's, it has just matured some. Many who are reporting and watching the polls see the truth quite clearly. Not only desperate, but terms like crumbled and dispirited are applied to what obama had, or thought he had. source article http://townhall.com/columnists/RichGalen/2010/10/18/desperate,_dispirited_and_crumbling

As a life long conservative a connot figure out what this man has done that is even close to left wing... This is the same tag lines they said about Clinton also. Turns out, by the numbers, he was the most conservative president we have had since Ike. I never voted for Mr. Clinton so don't go down that road. I am a little ashamed that I did not give more support when I saw the extreme right filing millions of dollars in tax payer funded lawsuits though. Speaking of supporting lawyers. Bringing rules and law back into business makes the small businessman like me feel secure. Going back to the "give it all away" republicans does not fit in to my ideas of conservative. We did not get health care reform we did get health care regulation. Personally I was hoping a few of those crooks would go to jail for stealing from customers but that will never happen. After paying insurance all of my life and never having a claim I am a little perturbed when I am listed as high risk for a kitchen accident.

Apparently you see the government as a good guy, the good parent willing to take care of you. If I had a small business, I cannot imagine why I would like more government control and more taxation. In the end, there is no guarantee that I will be successful. To the extent that obamacare continues to live, it is evident that insurance premiums are going to increase significantly. There is no plan for the government to cover that expense.

We all know insurance premiums hadn't increased for years, right? Annie

djbtol to begin with small business has gotten several tax breaks over the last two years. Insurance has been in failure for twenty years. The only ones that get a fair shake are government workers and large unions. The small business folks have been taking it in the shorts for years. My employee's have insurance but I do not. My personal premiums went from $280.00 a month to $1400.00 a month after a claim I had in 2004. The only claim I ever had that was beyond my deductable. I don't want a parent but I do want banks, insurance company's, investment groups and the government to follow laws that make doing business with people is not bassed on how much you can screw a customer. I see the deregulation of every industry in America over the last thirty years as a complete moral failure. We have a country that does not feel responsible to it's government or it's fellow Americans. We have a country that has no interest education, history or individual rights as intended by our forefathers. The only thing worse then a dysfunctunal government is an unbridled capitalist society. The very reason that our government is dysfunctional is because we the people have not stepped up to demand accountability.

0bama misread dissatisfaction with Bush and rejection of McCain as a mandate for him to dismantle our economic system and replace it with socialism. He was mistaken, because Americans have no desire to become European socialists, nor do we want to be part of any New World Order. All of 0bama's core people have now deserted him, and he is going have to get a new group together. He lost the independent voters, and a large share of the democrats are even running from him as he is far too leftist even for them. While the economy tanked, he worked on the failed healthcare legislation, something that a vast majority of the people opposed. His agenda is a failure and he manged to do a lot of damage to the democrats in the process... which is a good thing for America in the long run. The progressives have taken a major hit.

Thanks for your reply and I agree with your assessment. The intent of globalization and multicultural diversity is a new world order, possibly controlled by the UN, but definitely not the USA. It is also amazing that not one democrat is campaigning about the success of obamacare. They know they shoved it down the throats of Americans.

I'm still looking for this "leftist liberal agenda" I keep reading about here! If President Obama were liberal Don't Ask, Don't Tell would probably have been ended, Gitmo would have been closed, those guilty of torture form the Bush Administration would have been prosecuted, there would have been a big push for a single-payer health plan and there would have been no troop increase in Afghanistan. These are just for starters. Annie

Just because he has not been able to do the things he set out to do, does not mean that was not his intention. The cards were all stacked in his favor, and his still failed miserably.

Although, now that I think of it, there was one commenter arguing that Obama was conservative. Maybe that is where your are going. Do you think Obama will join the TEA party? Or is it too extreme?

I do hope it does not work. However the trouble is that most in the Black community voted for Obama - and as I did hear on Fox News, that a Black Republican is a rarity. I just hope that they do not have those Black Panthers 'protecting' the polls like what happened when Obama won. I wish the young people had learned about the dangers of a far left state as many of us did when we were in school or they would not have voted for a far left president.

A black republican is rare; even more rare is a black conservative. But they are out there and starting to be heard. Black Americans find themselves in a difficult spot: they know that obama is not doing the job, but yet they do not want to vote against their bro (historical bro) because then they feel like a traitor. Compromise position: stay at home.

Now I am not an American, but if I said that I was only going to vote for someone who happens to be part German, or part Austrian, or part English, or part Welsh, I would be accused of being a racist and a bigot. I cannot see why the same standards do not apply down there, that if you vote for someone because of his ethnic background and not on his policies, you would be given the same label. I do hope that there are more black conservatives out there and give people a better choice. And if they just see race and not policies, maybe they should stay home.

Many years ago I left Europe and came to America to escape the socialist form of government. I proudly became a citizen and now Obama is is is even worse with his type of government than I had in the UK.

Thanks for sharing that. I do not think most Americans, including me, really understand that European democratic socialism. I do know it is not what made the United States the great country that it is.
