The One Obama has been waiting for
Obama’s targeting of demonized groups has been narrowing over time, something documented here since the 2008 campaign.
Remember when the Top 5% were the target? Phew, that’s so 2008.
Then the Top 2%. Phew, that’s so 2009.
Then the Top 1%. Phew, that’s so 2010.
Then Wall Street. Phew, that’s so 2011.
No, old Eagle Eye has been circling long enough, and he has spotted his prey: About 400 people who would be afffected by the Buffett Rule.
But that will not suffice. 400 people is too broad. It’s hard to dig your claws into 400 people. There are too many job creators, innovators, and nice people.
Obama needs to lock onto and make an example of just one person:
“Can’t Obama just find someone to publicly flog and be done with it already?”
Yes he can. Yes he will. He can do this.
That person is The One Obama has been waiting for.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Obama has no record to run on so he needs to point out the obvious to a dumbed down public in such a way that it is to his benefit. After all, the failures of supporting so called “green” industries, the stimulus, “affordable health care,” endless vacations and junkets are all big negative factors to be swept under the rug.
Couple this with the administration’s attempts to stifle voter ID, fail to enforce current immigration, interfere with possible pending criminal proceedings such as Martin/Zimmerman event in Florida by opining in public, attempts to bully the Supreme Court and so on are his main weapons for the coming campaign.
I can only say that for my entire working life, I paid in to the “system” and now that I’m retired, I simply want the government to follow a “hands off” policy that does me no harm.
Fat chance, eh?
That was ALWAYS in the dice, Prof.
ANY. BODY. That opposes him is dialed into his fire-control.
It is the Chicago narcissist way.
He is not my first choice, but Obama can be beaten.
Obama wants to run essentially on the “get even” nonsense we see with his Buffet Rule punitive tax scheme. And of course Romney characterizes the effort. We knew this months ago and suggested back then that Gingrich would be a tougher target of thet effort.
But here we are.
Im not a millionaire nor do I need to defend millionaires. They are more capable than I am in defending their interests.
And I wouldnt defend them using the “job creators” argument.
Go more basic.
Its wrong to enact punitive tax legislation directed at minorities. Period.
Weve all heard the tale…first they came for this one…then that one and now me.
And if we cant tax them? Sue them instead….since its all about “fairness” right? Its what Obama is all about.
If Republicans are smart? We can win the central argument. But dont frame it incorrectly.
That person is The One Obama has been waiting for.
Zimmerman to be charged in Martin shooting-breaking
Obama: my policies failed, somebody should pay besides uhm er ah everyone.
Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.
According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
“Paycheck discrimination hurts families who lose out on badly needed income,” he [Obama] said in a July 2010 statement. “And with so many families depending on women’s wages, it hurts the American economy as a whole.”
I had already noted in the comments here long ago that Mitt Romney was the candidate that Obama wanted to face.
Obama can’t compete with anyone on a level playing field. He has to be given a special advantage. For most of his life and in the 2008 race his advantage has been his skin color. The few times he has had to run against other blacks there was chicanery used to destroy his opponent rather than let voters choose on merits.
Now the novelty of 2008 is off. This isn’t a “historical” race, so Obama needed another advantage. If you have to run the same course as the other runner it helps if you get to jump the starting gun.
Obama has been running against Mitt Romney for over a year at this point. While Romney is still holding his “Get Set!” pose Obama is skulking around a foot from the finish line waiting for the chance to burst through it when Romney comes in sight for that photo op finish.
It is the Obama way. Style over substance. Photo op over honest work.
THAT is why I felt it was important for there to be ANYONE but Romney. Hannibal Lecter would make a better candidate because it would have moved Obama back to the starting line. Plus, I think Lecter could have debated Michelle Obama on nutritional values of various diets.
Well said, William. Funny thing, I just sent an email to some colleagues on the Article 2 activism front. Here it is:
Subject Line: Romney? Learn.
I suggest finding the facts at GulagBound.com (which is why all the time on it, eh?).
Newt Gingrich is still running. He has put his life on the line to defend U.S. Sovereignty and to release the oil being horded in America like gold, by the same controlling financial interests that Lincoln called his worse enemy than the Confederacy.
Mitt Romney is an habitual and strategic liar, by evidence. He is the Goldman Sachs candidate being set up to be the Mr. Wall Street target for Marxist revolution while behind his robotic facade, an anti-American Agenda 21 globalist, whose button will be pushed to accept the globalist central banking system’s bailout with strings of global government, after America’s economy collapses (probably, conveniently, next year) famine ensues in places (especially urban, inner city) and the revolution rages.
I can support the “lesser of two evils,” given the fall of man. In honoring the Declaration, I will refuse to comply with any “lesser” of two enemies.
If it is Romney vs. Obama, it is Quisling vs. Chavez. A third candidate must be supported, if for nothing else but instruction, identification, organizing, and preparing for the civil war at hand.
Go Operation Counterweight.
I will not support Romney. Period.
Not one penny. Not one second. Not one shit.
