That’s right, Mitt Romney should be preparing to lose. If you believe the corrupt MSM and the eeyore-ish conservative blogosphere, Mitt Romney is going to lose and it won’t even be close. Pack it in. Prepare for 2016. Jeb Bush/Chris Christie/Marco Rubio to the rescue!
Gag, right? It’s been said (originally, I don’t know) that we’d be better off picking our leaders from the phone book. After some of the failures of the Bush admin/GOP in his terms (not representative of Conservatism, btw) and many of those same failures/policies being continued, on steroids, during the Obama administration; the phonebook quip rings more and more true.
Would you the average citizen, your name plucked at random from the phone book, do some of the things Obama has done? Especially when facing re-election, a mere 45 days away. Would you:
-Refuse to meet with Netanyahu, but make time for a photo-op with a pirate? (Puh-leeze tell me this is photoshopped.)
-Let someone re-do the American flag with *your* symbol and then hawk it for campaign funds? (This tweet originally showed the flag for sale. Now the “improved” flag is missing. Hmm.)
-Ask people to pledge to *you* about some issue that’s important to them?
-Go to sleep while a US ambassador’s location/status was unknown? (BTW, this whole foreign policy failure should end any and all hopes of a Hillary Clinton run in 2016.)
-Go on Letterman while the world was burning and forget the national debt?
-Fundraise with Beyonce, Jay-Z and an opulent champagne tower (But we represent you man, the 99%!) while Americans are struggling?
-Would you let the rumor* get out that you’re planning to buy a $35 million estate in Hawaii? An estate that will be ready to move into, not January of 2017, but January of 2013?!?
Breaking –> Would you release 1/3 of Gitmo detainees, never mind right before an election?
I would argue that the most telling clue was dropped this past Thursday. Obama said “you can’t change Washington from the inside.” This from the man who four years ago repeatedly claimed the HE was precisely the right person for the job, the right person to bring change to Washington, (why he said this and why people believed him, I’m unsure) simply b/c he hadn’t been a part of it. Or something. Seriously. *You know guys, I can’t change Washington while I hold the MOST POWERFUL POSITION in the free world.* From “Yes we can!” to ‘No, I can’t’ in just four short years of some of the most rankly amateurish “leadership” our citizenry has ever seen.
This admission/reversal was a trial balloon of sorts to his most devoted supporters. Sadly, they are still brainwashed from his campaign 4 years ago (thanks in large part to his water-carrying, corrupt, lap dog media). ‘But he tried really hard!’ his supporters will say. The trip to Letterman, the fundraising with Hollywood, the interview with Pimp with a Limp (on 9/11!), snubbing Netanyahu and fundraising with Bey & Jay all equal attempts to solidify street cred. So when he loses in November, his fans will still love him. Sad isn’t it, knowing that to some of our fellow citizens the aforementioned things matter MORE to them than the seriousness of protecting our country, policies, taxes, etc.. Sure, not everyone loves the nitty gritty of politics but you don’t have to be a policy wonk to understand Obama hasn’t been doing his job. #EmptyChair
These decisions and the admission/reversal from the smartest president evah! So my original question: Would you as an average citizen do the things Obama has done, ALL of them just in the past 11 days? No, you wouldn’t. You’re smarter than that. Apparently, Obama is wising up and doing something about it: preparing to lose.
*As ‘Mo noted on twitter this AM, the Hawaii house is just a rumor. However, it’s a rumor that we should be spreading far and wide to demoralize Dems. Heck, it may not even matter. If the kool-aid has lingered and his supporters buy that whole “can’t change Washington from the inside” excuse, Obama may be living in that palatial Hawaiian home in January of 2013 & some of his supporters will still call you racist if you tell them about it.
