Comments on: Why Obama isn’t sweating the midterms http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/10/07/why-obama-isnt-sweating-the-midterms/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: mynamehear2 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/10/07/why-obama-isnt-sweating-the-midterms/#comment-32715 Thu, 07 Oct 2010 19:12:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=8354#comment-32715 @BHOlied – No worries here- I’m all for Anyone from either side of the isle that offers the most intelligent, specific and likely to succeed Solutions (sorry, “No” is not a solution).

My point was, as of now from the GOP I see absolutely No Likely alternative right now. All I do see at this point are silly caricatures. Perhaps better suited for mindless laughs on a reality show- but nothing to run the worlds foremost country.

A few Tea Partiers will win election, and the public will quickly realize that they are very long on rhetoric and terribly short on anything that resembles experience and knowledge of public policy. A few “normal” GOP candidates will win, too, and soon realize that despite their best attempts, there isn’t a whole lot they can do to change something as large as the ENTIRE US ECONOMY in a period of months. Everyone’s still going to be angry, but people *might* actually see that no matter who’s in power, the country is in the toilet.

a lot can change in two years my friend. Obama will find some more businesses to destroy, some more things to tax, go back on a few more promises, push through a few more bills the public doesn’t want and he will be kicked out of office.

Don’t you worry.

The midterms draw the uninformed sheeple that are much more willing to vote whomever, for whatever reason out of office. Usually doing so without any real investigation into whom they are electing to replace them. That doesn’t happen in mass scales during presidential elections. With that said, there isn’t a serious gop contender at this point- not even remotely close to being acceptable.

How far back in the archives did the author have to go to find the picture posted with this article??? Perhaps the smile is because O-blame-a thinks there’s a light at the end of the tunnel………. when in fact its a passenger train full of really unhappy voters who are about to run him out of town.

He’ll still have a job, unlike 60% of his party (and 20% of his constituents).

The S.S. Democrat Party is sinking fast, and Obama is one heavy anchor, baby:

You’d think with all that stimulus money, General Motors might be able to build Obama and His party a life boat: http://www.dailyscoff.com/?p=2689
