Everything he said was pure politics. He is continuing his divide and conquer campaign. The great mass of stupid people will believe the Supreme Court took away their free healthcare and did so without any legal justification. Obama knows full well that is not the case...that he is lying through his teeth but he sees that as the way to success.

The one hiccup to his plan is the 5th Circuit Appeals Court that demanded a Three Page, single spaced, detailed explanation of Obama's statement....which in simple language would have to say he is 1) Ignorant of the jurisdiction and authority of the Supreme Court (Which he certainly is not)....or 2) Is lying....which we know he certainly is.

As we speak....his DOJ is in Court demanding the "Defense of Marriage Act" be overturned by......ready for this.....yes.....the very same Court he said would be wrong for overturning this Obamacare thing.

Any law student that does not know about the Marbury Case...will I just cannot imagine there is one out there that does not. Even as a Rookie Police Officer in the city of Charlotte NC I was taught about that.

This guy is headed down the Toilet faster than a processed Vindaloo Curry!

The guy has sold the Shit House on this one!

Regardless of what He does or does not do from now until November, or until the cows come home for that matter, He will be re-elected come November, you can bet book on that. Don't get me wrong, I voted for him in '08 but will NOT make that mistake again. He does need to go.

Assuming that Mitt is the presumptive Republican nominee for President, Romney will be portrayed as a fat-cat, rich man from that evil state of Tax-a-chusetts who is "out of touch with the ordinary guy or gal on the street." This is how he will be painted by the Democrats. And many of those middle-income, lower-middle-income, low-income and no-income voters will buy into it. (The medja will also be part and parcel of this. IN A BIG WAY.)

I'll say it again and again and again: in November His Nibs will be re-elected. It's almost a given. (Unless, or course, many of the electorate wake up before then, but that ain't gonna happen.)

I really wish I could disagree with you, but after seeing everything that is going on and considering love fest that our major media TV outlets have with Obama, you are correct I'm afraid.

We are going a reelect a President that should be under impeachment, if not already impeached. Sad state of affairs.

I don't know about the impeachment part, con, but I would venture to say that we will reelect a president who is a liar and, most importantly, is incompetent to hold the office.

On an aside, I found this chart interesting.

I don't know about the impeachment part, con
Assassination of US citizens by executive order without due process as stated in the Constitution.

For someone that has stated that he is against the death penalty, he sure has no problem pulling the trigger, so to speak.

Now he is in a war against the Supreme Court, I guess he doesn't believe in the separation of powers either; legislative, executive, judicial. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

A wonderful thing the Electoral College system the Founding Fathers invented. Mere popular vote alone will not get the job done. The Bamster has to win the votes of the the Electoral College which means it is a harder row to hoe than merely the number of votes he can buy...steal...and fabricate.

We can write off some States....but there are quite a few that can tip the scale the right way this time. November is a long way off....and it Romney's to Lose. Obama is beat....but only if Romney doesn't screw it up!

rgbrock,

And that graph is before Obama's massive new healthcare entitlement program. If that stands watch the interest wedge grow much more, the defense wedge shrink considerably, and the healthcare wedge explode. All that while one of the most effective, most creative and most sought-after health care systems in the world crumbles.

Obama will have more than a Billion dollars to spend, the part that's in plain sight. The Press will savage Mitt, and burnish the weasel. Did you see the "interview" Romney gave to that witch at his new home? "YOU really don't get it? DO YOU?" She says, like Obama wears hair shirts and reimburses the Taxpayers for his selfishness. Nice pad, he's a multi millionaire, etc. There will be polygamy "investigations" into his ancestors, thinly veiled bigotry from the "Swells", etc. And he is no clever clever, to say the least. He will come off as disconnected, thick, and elite. He will. Obama will gaze intently into the "Future", offering his "Brilliance" to the masses, the saviour of......what? It won't matter, Obama's platitudes will count ten to one for Romney's best plans.

And I will seethe. With an honest media, Obama hasn't a chance. Did one notice how Brian Williams edited the 911 tape to make Zimmerman sound racist, when it showed him as the opposite? Dan Rather and his forged "DATA", which he broadcast with full knowledge of its fiction? Uncountable, "Shades, "Postures" and simply fake and "made up"news? Fully all of the recent self confidence Obama displays comes from his reassurances that the election will be rigged, in several ways.

John Kennedy could come back from the dead, and would lose. Romney? All we can do is work asses off, and pray. Oh, and VOTE.

sayin'.

Yup, and sayin' right.

For all the reasons Lyman listed, is why, in my opinion*, Obama will be reelected. The mainstream media and all the late night show hosts will crucify Romney.

Shoot, the late night show hosts already are. I just love Jay Leno, who is most likely richer than Romney, making fun and running down Romney because Romney is rich. Hello pot, kettle calling.

I just can't believe that Romney is the best one the Republicans can come up with. I sure didn't vote for him in our primary. But then again, I felt the same way with McCain. At the start John Huntsman was my pick, but then that is why I don't bet on race horses anymore.


* An opinion that I pray is completely wrong.

And I would suggest that those who believe Obama has a chance, put a little distance between yourselves and the mainstream media.

That said, I believe SAS nailed it with this analysis.

A wonderful thing the Electoral College system the Founding Fathers invented. Mere popular vote alone will not get the job done. The Bamster has to win the votes of the the Electoral College which means it is a harder row to hoe than merely the number of votes he can buy...steal...and fabricate.

We have to rely 0n an electorate that already pooched it once. My point is, I think Romney will do well. He'll have some coaching, he already shows some fresh energy, and something about an election that can bring out the best in a good man. His obstacles are legion, and what makes us free also allows for dishonesty and a rabid Press, for the most part completely unaccountable.

I can get behind Romney because I'll have to, and I will hold on to some of my storied optimism for that special Tuesday.

Give it your all, Mitt, I know you will.

Meanwhile, here's an example of the Mainstream Media giving Barry a big ol sloppy hummer.

Dean Singleton, chairman of the Associated Press board, showers President Obama with praise before he addressed the audience: "As president, he inherited the headwinds of the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. He pushed through Congress the biggest economic recovery plan history and what a government reorganization of two of the big three American automakers to save them from oblivion. He pursued domestic and foreign policy agendas that are controversial to many, highlighted by his signature into law of the most comprehensive health care legislation in history ..."

Now part of Romney's religion problem is that he's a part of a new religion. Established religions like Judaism, which is about 4,000 years old, and Christianity, which is about 2,000 years old, don't easily warm up to new religions like Romney's, which is only 182 years old.

My friend Orlin used to say that. Navajo I think, something like "The Tribe can do this".

Well the DOJ has responded to the 5th Court's demand for Holder to explain Obama's remarks about the Supreme Court's power to declare laws un-Constitutional.

Basically it boils down to the old, 'What the captain meant to say.', type of statement.

Bottom line that I got from the letter was, yes the Supreme Court can. It was just that President Obama was speaking at a much higher level of intelligence than 99.9% of the people can understand. So that is why there was a misunderstanding.

I guess the fact that the Supreme Court has been overturning laws passed by Congress since 1803 totally escaped the President's mind. Some 1,200 laws since 1803 have been overturned by the Supreme Court, as the Court ruled those laws un-Constitutional.

Yet Obama is supposedly a Constitutional attorney/expert. Sure he is.

con:

And you haven't figured out why He has a higher intellect than 99.9% of other people? Have you even tried to figure it out?

Okay, since you don't know why, I'll show you a picture then, sheesh.

One seriously wonders who is advising this guy. Guess he's going after the women golfer vote. There's an untapped segment.

There is a private golf club in Edmond, Oklahoma called Oaktree. For years it was a all male club, no women allowed period. In fact none of the club employees were women.

Then because they were receiving so much criticism they were more of less forced to allow women to join. About the same time, due to mismanagement, the club was in dire straights. So an acquaintance of mine and a former boss of mine bought the club. After they did, they opened the membership to allow women.

Two women were allowed to join, the wives of the two new owners.

I kid thee not.


Oh, and no I am not nor ever have been a member, costs too bloody much, but I have played the course a lot. The PGA Championship was played there in the late 80s. It is a tough course. Trust me on this.
