Today on his birth day, Barack Obama can count 50 years of experience in treachery and boobery under his belt. With all that expertise in lying and cheating Barack Obama now spreads his teachings to willing acolytes. The Hill has the details of the Obama message on how to lie, cheat, and bamboozle:
“President Obama counseled supporters Wednesday evening “not to get too bogged down” in details when explaining his record to voters during the campaign.
The president, in a video conference with supporters Wednesday night from Chicago, encouraged his backers to focus on broad themes when it comes to his policies on taxes and war, instead of the specifics of individual policies.
“I think the key is not to get too bogged down in detail,” the president said last night.”
The Pope speaks from the Vatican, the modern Czars make declarations from the Kremlin, Chinese Communist Emperors issue edicts from the Forbidden City, the Clown of Corruption speaks from Chicago.
Having cooked up a Satan Sandwich this week, by no means does Barack Obama want to discuss details about anything he has done. Fellow Chicagoan Al Capone got sent to the penitentiary because of “details”. Barack Obama, as he has personally done, is now instructing his corrupt cult to ixnay on the etailsday:
“If somebody asks about taxes, nobody is really interested in hearing what precise marginal tax rate change would you like to see in the tax code,” Obama said. “What they want to know is that our campaign stands for a fair, just approach to the tax code that says everybody has to chip in, and that it’s not right if a hedge fund manager is being taxed at a lower rate than his or her secretary.”
On Afghanistan and Iraq, Obama said: “If somebody asks about the war, whether it’s Iraq or Afghanistan — if it’s Iraq, you have a pretty simple answer, which is all our folks are going to be out of there by the end of the year. If it’s Afghanistan, you can talk about, look, we think it’s time for us to transition to Afghan lead and rebuild here at home. So, again, it’s a values issue: Where are we prioritizing our resources?” [snip]
Obama said his campaign, led by Jeremy Bird, his national field director, would take the lead in ensuring that volunteers have good talking points to take out on the campaign trail. The president said his administration would also lay out new initiatives that would help his grassroots volunteers sell his record.
The president, himself a past community organizer, also said it wasn’t so bad for volunteers to tell questioners that they don’t know the answer.
“They don’t expect you to know the ins and outs of every single policy,” Obama said. “But they do expect that you’re going to treat them with courtesy and that you’re going to get back to them if you don’t know the answer to something.”
There you have Barack Obama specifically and in detail telling his cult to not bother explaining details to the electorate. There you have Obama laying out to his cult the way he bamboozles the public and avoids answering questions. Those details are so ugly and contrary to Obama’s answers that if the details are discussed the voters will continue to rebel. Barack Obama does not want details discussed.
Unfortunately for the corrupt clown from Chicago, today is also the day that the two chief operatives at Politico decided to discuss details. In a very long article Jim Vandehei and Mike Allen, two reporters who used to be very good at their jobs until their real jobs became protecting Barack Obama, are back looking at the details Obama wants kept hidden:
“The politics of the debt fight were a drag for President Barack Obama, yanking his popularity to new lows. Here’s an even bigger drag: Obama emerges from the months-long fracas weaker — and facing much deeper and more durable political obstacles — than his own advisers ever imagined.
The consensus has been that for all his problems, Obama is so skilled a politician — and the eventual GOP nominee so flawed or hapless — that he’d most likely be reelected.
Don’t buy into it.”
Hey, Jim and Mike, Obama is a boob as a politician as just about anyone with eyes can now see. It was you guys in Big Media that protected Obama and attacked every other candidate thereby making Obama look like a genius. But Obama was always a corrupt boob willing to do and say anything to advance himself. You know like, attack millionaires and billionaires then give them billions/trillions in bailouts in exchange for a few campaign dollars. But you are right about those “fundamentals”:
“This breezy certitude fails to reckon with how weak his fundamentals are a year out from the general election. Gallup pegs his approval rating at a discouraging 42 percent, with his standing among independents falling 9 points in four weeks.
His economic stats are even worse. The nation has 2.5 million fewer jobs today than the day Obama took office, a fact you’re sure to hear the Republicans repeat. Consumer confidence is scraping levels not seen since March 2009.
Where’s the bright spot? Hard to see. Obama has few, if any, domestic achievements that enjoy broad public support. No one assumes employment, growth or housing prices to pick up much, if at all — something Obama is essentially powerless to change. And the political environment and electoral map are significantly tougher than in 2008, especially in true up-for-grabs states.”
Amazing. Only now, in August of 2011 do we hear that Obama has “few, if any, domestic achievements”. Wasn’t Obama just a few months ago, certainly last year, the new FDR? Obama the new Reagan? Obama the new Zeus? Nope, he’s just a dope, peddlin’ false Hope.
According to Jim and Mike, Obama Dimocrats (well actually those that pretended for a while to be Obama Dimocrats as they waited for the time to tell the truth about the boob) are beginning to look at the details in a sober, Hopium-less, manner:
“The historical precedents of what happens to incumbent presidents in these economic circumstances are not positive or encouraging,” said Geoff Garin, a top Democratic pollster. “There has been a false sense of confidence among a lot of Democratic activists.” [snip]
Privately, however, Obama’s team is concerned about the factors beyond its control, talking of an imminent need to retool their economic message and strategy heading into 2012. Absent the president’s ability to defy political gravity, one Obama adviser conceded, “The numbers add up to defeat.”
The details, according to Vandehei and Allen, in the sandwich of this Satan:
“Based on interviews with a wide array of top government and political officials, here’s why the adviser might be on the something:
Fast-forward a year or so, when voters are starting to tune in, and the Republican nominee will be able to pluck economic data — not spin, empirical data — to make the following case against Obama:
“We were promised hope and change — but instead life has been a drag in the Obama years. Millions of people lost jobs, saw the value of their house drop every month he’s been in office, never realized the economic growth he promised and were so cash-strapped they couldn’t buy the big-ticket items they were used to.”
No Republican has harnessed all the available data to make the broader case against the president.
One will. And Obama’s advisers don’t expect the data points to change much by the time the attacks start rolling in.
The White House anticipates unemployment at 8.25 percent, and Goldman Sachs and others warn the number could be higher — close to 9 percent, which would mean no net job growth after the biggest stimulus package in the history of the world. No president has won reelection when unemployment was higher than 7.2 percent in 50 years.
Median home values have declined every month Obama has been in office, too, according to Zillow, which monitors real estate markets. The site’s chief economist now predicts home value won’t bottom out until 2012 “or later.” So, the one asset Americans relied on for wealth — and until the crash, for spending money — will be the biggest concern for many.
And because economic growth never lived up to the expectations set early by different White House officials at different times — remember “the summer of recovery”? — voters simply don’t have the money or confidence to buy big things like they used to.”
We opposed the Obama stimulus scam because although we understand Keynesian economics we also have common sense that tells us throwing away trillions of dollars in election year slush funds instead of intelligent growth plans is a waste of money. Bailing out speculators (recall how FDR shut down banks and called out speculators) was the Obama way as long as the unions and company bosses gave Obama Dimocrats and Obama campaign money. Instead of attacks on speculators and the full brunt of economic law against companies which produced junk, Obama spent trillions on garbage:
“The auto industry is on pace to sell nearly 30 percent fewer new cars than it did a decade ago, and the sales of stoves and ovens haven’t been this low since 1992, according to David Leonhardt, The New York Times columnist who often defends the Obama administration’s economic policies. He provided Republicans some handy stats last month in a column with the stark conclusion: “We are living through a tremendous bust.”
Democratic Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley worries that Obama will be blamed for a “jobs crisis” — and that he realized the danger too late. [snip]
[snip] The size-of-government spat is a hard one for the president to win.
By the time the next election rolls around, the government will have taken on almost $7 trillion in debt under Obama. It’s hard to explain away a number so big.
Republicans will find clever ways to make that number more digestible, including handy stats such as reducing that amount to $22,500 in new debt for every man, woman and child in the nation — enough to pay for a new Toyota Corolla for each of them.
Or look at it from another vantage point.
In the past four years, the average voter has grown more dependent on government for his or her income than at any point since at least 1929, when such numbers were first tracked.
This means Social Security, Medicare and unemployment are the big income drivers — not new jobs and bigger salaries.
“The big issue for him will be whether people see light at the end of the tunnel when they ultimately vote,” Democratic Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire said in a telephone interview. “The people in my state want to hear that there is a good and bright and sound future. The average person is really concerned.”
The Satan Sandwich called the economy is indigestible. Because of that the details of reelection are details Obama does not want discussed either:
All of these points meet on the electoral map, which isn’t looking great for Obama. [snip]
Looking at Obama’s 2008 swing-state wins, Democrats have all but given up on Indiana and know that he will have trouble keeping two other traditionally red states, Virginia and North Carolina; may have been hurt in Florida by unhappiness in the Jewish community about Obama’s handling of Israel; and will have a dogfight for the Rust Belt prizes of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan (where one respected state poll had him narrowly lagging Romney). Obama’s reelection strategy depends on running strong in the Mountain West, most critically in Colorado.
But without at least a couple of the traditional bellwether states, Obama will be a one-term president.
THE OBAMA LEGACY
A big hurdle for the president is the unpopularity of the very policies that his team thought would be big accomplishments in the first term.”
We know what the Obama legacy will be. We knew what the Obama legacy would be back in 2007. The Obama legacy is corruption, treachery, boobery.
“A top Democratic strategist who is close to the White House said that Obama’s first-term record “is going to be, on balance, probably a liability” for his reelection, partly “because of the failure to sell and explain the things that they were doing.”
“I believe history will judge what they did to be correct,” the strategist said. “But the failure to communicate why they were doing it has meant that there is such confusion. … It’s ground he’s going to have to make up, rather than things he’s going to be able to run on.”
Poor deluded “Democratic strategist”. By now even those dolts should realize that the “failure to communicate” is the linchpin to Obama success. That linchpin is hide the
salami details. If Obama did “communicate why they were doing it” the country would be angrier.
If Obama provided the details of what he has done, the pitchfork armies would cover every stretch of asphalt from sea to shining sea. Obama is a boob for all to see and the long sheathed knives are slowly glinting into the sun:
“Mark Penn, chief strategy for Hillary Clinton in 2008 and CEO Worldwide of Burson-Marsteller, said “the biggest problem is that he has not accumulated enough domestic accomplishments that people can easily recall. He either has to start accumulating them as [President Bill] Clinton did — and a budget deal is a big opportunity — or he has to convince people that he has the right policies overall — they just haven’t worked yet.”
And those independents so hated by the “creative class” of Obama cultists? Um… they itch to twitch Obama out:
Even in good times, Obama would have a tough reelection. The 2008 election — featuring a weak GOP candidate, in a terrible political environment for Republicans — obscured the inescapable fact of modern politics: This is a 50-50 nation, controlled at the presidential level by independents. [snip]
He entered office with 62 percent support among independents. But they took flight in the spring of 2009 — and have never returned. Those voters helped Republicans win the off-year gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia, now-Sen. Scott Brown’s race in Massachusetts a few months later, ultimately control of the House — and, more important but less talked-about, many state legislatures around the country.”
Those Republicans that Obama slew into oblivion in 2008? It was all a Hopium delusion. They’re stronger than ever:
First, it is clear many of the most prolific GOP fundraisers are sitting on the sidelines — but only for now. Operatives in both parties paid close attention to a smart story by USA Today showing that only one in five of John McCain’s elite fundraisers is working on behalf of a current GOP candidate. The same is true for many of former President George W. Bush’s elite money men and women.
This provides plenty of room for a new, more broadly electable, establishment-backed candidate such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to jump in, or for Romney or another current candidate to eventually pull this hugely influential group off the sidelines.
The second troubling sign is a persistent — and probably irreparable — rift between Obama and many small and large business leaders. The White House worked hard after the 2010 elections at reconciliation, but there are few signs it worked.
Several top CEOs have said they and others will get into this race in a big way eventually, often by exploiting the Supreme Court ruling that allows them to funnel unlimited sums of money into presidential politics without fingerprints. At a private meeting the billionaire founder of Home Depot arranged last week between wealthy donors, including some Democrats, and Christie, the main rant in the room was that Obama was hostile to free markets and needed to be stopped.
If rich business leaders get off the sidelines, the big financial edge everyone expects Obama to enjoy could be a mirage.
Obama’s political advisers are sounding this alarm to any liberal donor who will listen, worried that their own biggest contributors are growing complacent. But its been hard to re-create the magic of 2008 — which just might be Obama’s biggest problem.”
It’s tough to get reelected once the details come out. Obama does not want those details to emerge from the darkness.
Today the stock market vomited the Satan Sandwich served by by Urkel Obama. All the yearly gains went down the toilet as the Dow dropped more than 500 points. It was “total fear” of the “double dip” on Wall Street as the Satan Sandwiches piled up on the tables.
The answer from Obama to joblessness and the total fear? It’s a bus tour of the Mid-west paid for by those hurt most by Obama – the taxpayer. Obama will tour the neighborhoods of those he has hurt and bring them more Satan Sandwiches. Bus tours are almost always campaign events and they should be paid for by campaigns not by the taxpayers.
The Obama bus tour will neither help Obama nor the economy. Obama on a bus is such a ridiculous figure that the only ones helped by such clowning will be fellow comedians with TV shows. The economy will only be helped by such a tour if Obama announces he will LBJ and not run. What a magic bus that would be!
Barack Obama long ago praised public financing of elections. Now Obama is getting the public to pay for his election campaign. There is no level of indecency unexplored by this corrupt flim-flam man from Chicago.
The American public will pay and pay for the mistake made in ’08. The American public will eat Satan Sandwiches and DisappointMINTs from today until election day 2012.
As the details of the disaster to America which is Barack Obama get tallied up the authors of that disaster will have to be punished. Barack Obama will someday also have to account for his crimes and misdemeanors. For now, it is important that every detail be examined and published. The details hidden thus far will one day paint the full portrait of the flim flam man from Chicago. It’s a paint by numbers portrait Obama does not want the public to see.
