The Coming Resignation of Barack Obama
« on: June 02, 2010, 02:12:41 PM »
Interesting! I think Obama is too arrogant to ever resign but if the Dems lose the House and the Senate they may quietly support a Sestak allegation investigation.

Quote
Months ago, I predicted in this column that President Obama would so discredit himself in office that he wouldn't even be on the ballot in 2012, let alone have a prayer of being reelected. Like President Johnson in 1968, who had won a much bigger victory four years previously than Obama did in 2008, President Obama will be so politically defunct by 2012 that he won't even try to run for reelection.

I am now ready to predict that President Obama will not even make it that far. I predict that he will resign in discredited disgrace before the fall of 2012. Like my previous prediction, that is based not just on where we are now, but where we are going under his misleadership.

Watergate was supposed to have established that Presidents are not above the law. If that is so, President Obama may have to resign for breaking the law in the Sestak affair.

But the Sestak affair is just the early breeze of the gathering political storm that threatens to envelop President Obama. A mysterious explosion over six weeks ago in a deep sea oil well a mile below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico continues to gush oil to this day, heading for Gulf beaches and fisheries. The White House says the President held a meeting on it in the Oval Office on Day One. But we have not heard a word on what was done in that meeting 44 days ago, other than develop political talking points.

Oh, I don't think he'll resign. He's too egotistical and has no understanding in his own ability to fail. To much narcissism in one human.

I agree.  He'll continue to think that his personal popularity will pull the Dems out of this mess, this "perfect storm" that is brewing. 

When he is shown to be utterly and catastrophically wrong, the survivors will shun him like the plague.  Bill Clinton's status as a former President will be elevated in the eyes of the Democrat Party, to the extent that any future Dem candidate will expressly tell Obama, "Thanks, but no thanks" when it comes to future endorsements.  Bill Clinton will get far more requests for endorsements.

Then Obama needs to start looking at Rasmussen, Gallup and individual states polling on his popularity, this is Pennsylvania from an article I read this morning:

I hear a fat woman warming up ready to sing .

It should be interesting tomorrow on how the talk with the Governor of AZ goes.

What do you want to bet he will offer her a job as a Volunteer White House guide if she resigns as Governor.?

I imagine he and she will speak to reporters telling them that the talks went well and he now understands the problem.  She will stumble out to her car with a large Manila envelope under her arm with photos of herself that she would die before having them released to the press.

One never knows, politics is a cut throat business.

FTC will take care of the Sestak situation. That goes away - no problem.

Obama will run for a 2nd term. Has to - if he doesn't, by the party's choice, then his entire presidency is proven to be a fluke and waste... and him a puppet.

BKG, we know this is a fluke, we know he is a Puppet of someone or someones.

No I do not think he will run for another term.  Not unless forced to.

You know I am beginning to wonder just how much power this man has, how much power he is allowed to have.

I cannot think of any man from the mail man to any state official who given a taste of power does not use it.  Heck in the private sector when people are promoted and they can not do the job, they get all huffy and try out their new found power.  We underlings say the job has gone to their head.

The hardest job in America is to protect us from foreign and internal enemy's. Obama is just hiding under the Lincoln bed waiting for all problems to go away.
He waits for orders or instructions, never climbing out from under the bed to make even one decision on his own.

This is one scared, impotent man, he feels he can not afford to fail so he does nothing.  Obama is like the Captain of a ship under high seas that hides in his bunk and turns the Helm over to the cook.

He knows the ship is sinking but takes advice from the man in charge of the laundry.He ignores the Chiefs and has a second in command that is drunk.  His Officers hate him and plot against him.

After the ship runs up on the rocks, he will run to the papers and claim Muntiny and not my fault.

You don't think he's used it? He's helped take over three industries already..

I think that's the EASIEST job. One just has to do it. The hard job is LEADING. Or in his case, convincing a 300M person public that communism is the way... and that's been paved for over 90 years now.

I don't see that. hope you're right... but I don't see it.  He is truly THE most powerful president we've had in 50 years, IMHO, because of what he has been able to accomplish...

what are the results of a forced resignation or impeachment?

"whitey did it"   "President Biden" 
I'd wager if an impeachment were to happen. The POTUS would declare the dictatorship.

I am really going out on a limb and shudder at the thought....BUT I think that not only will Obama run in 2012 but that he has a fair chance of winning.  Before you double over laughing, look back to Bush 1 in 1992.  If you look at his approval ratings after the first Gulf War it appeared that he was going to have no issue in being re-elected.  Unfortunately we all know what happened.  Do not forget that Americans are fickle and couple that with the power of the media who desperately do not want their king to fail, I do not possess the feeling that Obama is toast.  Furthermore there is no clear front runner on the Republican side and if the economy rebounds the Dims will trumpet what a great job was done.  It is far too early to get overconfident.

Remember, too, that President Bush would have won reelection by a landslide in 1992 if not for the collusion between the Clinton machine and their buddy Ross Perot.  Perot pulled away 19% of the non-socialist votes.

It is important to remember that, in case you are confused about where his allegiance lay, Ross Perot passionately endorsed Ann Richards over George W. Bush for Texas governor in 1995.

With the Bush (43) tax cuts due to expire for next year, and the fact that ObamaCare will not go away until the Republicans hold both 60+ Senate seats and the Presidency--specifically, the @ 45% of doctors that are leaving medicine, the huge small business-killing tax increases that are coming to pay for it, and the government intruding into almost every aspect of our lives, to name a few--I think that Obama will wind up losing 40 states in November of 2012, and the Republicans will have 65 or so Senate seats for the new Republican President in 2013.

I agree that no Republican has come forward yet who can actually beat Obama, also if the Republicans win the majority in the House and the Senate there's a good chance Obama would win because Americans like divided Governments BUT if the situation around the world with terrorism gets out of hand? then I think Obama can lose.

That sounds good, and you can also add to that an unenthusiastic Democratic base, and that even includes the black community, who I think, if it's really bad? will just stay home instead of feeling forced to vote against Obama.
