Who To Thank If Obama Wins A Second Term?

The expert opinions on who will win the election on November 6 and become our next President vary widely. Some believe Mitt Romney has the momentum and will win going away. Other opinions are not so favorable and believe Barack Obama will win. I wish I could answer the question, but my crystal ball is fogged up and I can’t tell which direction our country will be taking after next Tuesday. But if Obama does win a second term, who will we have to thank for that blessing? Personally, I have someone in mind and they have promised to be back to rub our faces in it after the election.

Those of you who have read Political Realities know I have no problem publishing comments who dissent from my opinion.I enjoy a good discussion and debate, especially when both sides are respectful in their disagreements. On that note, I received a comment on last Friday’s post that I wanted to share with you. I approved it and you can see my direct reply to the commenter at the link. Please note the user name the commenter used to make his/her comment; non racist – for a change.

ok so I am just browsing these one sided hypocritical bunch of lies while wondering how I could be living in a nation so divided by lies. I am not sure if some of you sniffed too much glue as a child or your parents where too misled by a west Virginian or east Appalachian group of infested farmers…. either way I will be back in 10 days to rub the fact that we will have a re-elect of the same president and this phony jerk that says one thing while doing another scurries back into the crevice of slimy millionaires where he belongs. I feel sorry for the one sided losers that monopolize their time reading garbage like this and then allowing their emotions to run rampant. Country was founded and runs better bottom up -not top down. Execs have too much power and need to be stripped of their corrupt lies – Romney is just another Wall Street thief.

ObamaAs you can see by reading the comment, it didn’t take non racist long to get into the personal insults to anyone who is supporting Mitt Romney. Beyond that, he/she is merely repeating the talking points of the Obama campaign. In other words, class warfare, the rich are evil, etc. He also made sure everyone knows what they read on Political Realities is pure garbage and a waste of the time it takes to read it.

I am past getting upset when I receive a comment like this. Obviously, I will never agree with the sentiment declared by non racist. Having said that, I do take exception to the implication that anyone not supporting Barack Obama is a racist. As I told him/her in my direct reply, my disagreements with our current President have nothing to do with the color of his skin and everything to do with his policies and his lack of leadership.

Until recently, this election has been about the economy. Even though that is still the overwhelming concern for many, if not most, Americans, foreign policy has entered into the equation. Every day, it seems we are learning more and more of how the Obama administration failed, in regards to Libya and the attacks that took the lives of four Americans. The information we now have tells us Barack Obama knew the attack was taking place and from the beginning, knew it had nothing to do with the video that took so much of the blame, early on. We know Obama and his administration has been lying about what they knew and when they knew it, and that they are in the process of trying to bury that information. That means we may very well reelect a President that has been lying to us for several weeks. If he will lie about what happened in Libya, what else has he been less than truthful on?

I often wonder if there is hope left for America. In my way of thinking, recent events should automatically disqualify Obama from winning a second term. How anyone could trust him enough to cast another vote for him is beyond my comprehension. If Obama wins a second term, what little hope we have left will be gone. The America we love and hold dear may very well not recover from another four years of Barack Obama in the White House. For that, we will have people like non racist to thank. You’ll have to forgive me if I sound less than thankful for their gift of reelecting a man who can not be trusted to serve another four years in the highest office in our country. If that happens, this will no longer be the America I grew up in. Thanks, non racist!

    Romney by not releasing more than 2 years of his tax returns is sufficient reason for me not to vote for him.
    BTW – if you are so sure Romney will win you can get 3:2 in real money betting on Romney.

    • Sorry, Tuco-Bad, but this is more smoke and mirrors. If you’re so concerned about seeing Romney’s tax records would you also agree it’s incumbent upon Obama to FINALLY release his passport application and college records? Aside from a few photos we still don’t even have proof he attended college. I will favor Romney releasing more of his tax records as soon as Obama releases his college records. But he won’t, for some reason. There’s obviously something there he doesn’t want anyone to see.

    • I just love it when I see comments such as yours. Some of you are so convinced Mitt Romney is hiding something, you wouldn’t believe he wasn’t, no matter how many tax returns he released. Regardless, he has already shown how many taxes he has been paying. That rabbit trail should already be put to rest.

      I would have to agree with Charles. Let Obama release his own records and let us learn more of his history. Until he does, Romney should release nothing else.

    • Steve Dennis

      Actually, Larry didn’t say he was sure Romney would win.

  • I don’t think you are going to be hearing from “non racist” again, Larry. The first debate changed the momentum of this election in favor of Romney. The exposure that the Obama administration let four Americans die in Benghazi is going to push Romney over the top. I’m hearing that the ratings for Fox News surged last week because they were the only media talking about the denied assistance to four brave Americans. I’m thinking a lot of blue collar patriots who were planning to vote for Obama will no longer do that. Obama has proven himself unfit to be our president and much less our Commander-in-Chief.

    • Oh, I have no doubt non racist was nothing but a drive-by commenter. I am sure he/she has no intention of returning. That especially holds true if Obama loses.

      I hope you are right about the attacks in Libya, and the subsequent cover up and lies, convincing voters to cast their vote for Romney. I have said this time after time, we can not afford another four years of Barack Obama. The last few weeks have convinced me of that, more than ever.

  • Robert

    Obama’s reelection will seal the deal that America has died. We patriots will address the situation in the streets, taking back the country and disposing of the leftist detritus that are the greatest threat.

  • sven

    I wouldn’t thank the professional trollers of websites like yours. While their role is to attack and demoralize your readership, I’d reserve my thanks for their masters, the communist MSM, their PR firms (but I repeat myself), the big endowments and the the vast leftist machinery in general. Sorry for repeating myself so much.

  • Who to thank? First of all, his fanboyz and fangurls in the press, who constitute his most powerful superpac. Next, the legions of idiots (included the commenter you cite) who believe Obama’s BS instead of their own lying eyes.

  • I think we can thank Romney for running a poor campaign, particularly on the ad war front. But we can also thank the mainstream press for ignoring Libya and/or covering up for Obama in Libya. We can thank Obama for an October surprise. But we cannot blame Romney for failing to release more than two years of tax returns. That was a non-issue from the start. People aren’t voting based on tax returns.

    If Romney is just another Wall Street thief, what is Obama? In 2008 he got more Wall Street money than McCain did. People who want to throw around accusations like this simply don’t know the facts.

    • I would disagree with your assessment about Romney’s campaign. It is different than a lot of people believe it should be, but I believe his strategy is bearing fruit.

      I agree with the rest of your comment. The tax return story was only a rabbit trail to distract as many voters as possible. And you are right about Obama’s campaign finances. In spite of his rhetoric, he is no stranger to Wall Street.

  • Dragonconservative

    We’ll have people like the Obama phone woman to thank if Obama wins a second term.

  • And if Romney wins (and I believe he will), will “non-Racist” come back to apologize and admit he was wrong? I doubt it.

  • I do try to put this entire subject in its proper context, but it is difficult to do because the issue is complex. First, this country has never consisted of “united states.” Not even during the revolutionary period, when our colonial ancestors were one of the following: pro-British, pro-revolutionary, and pro-I could care less.

    Regional differences led us to civil war. Substantial opposition to President Wilson during World War I led that democrat to incarcerate dissidents. In World War II, another democrat incarcerated all Japanese-Americans, leaving German and Italian Americans unmolested.

    Since the beginning of the 20th Century, the progressive movement has learned how to divide and conquer America. Democrats who invented Jim Crow law to suppress blacks were the same Democrats who fomented racial problems in the south, invented the Great Society, which relegated blacks to slum neighborhoods teeming with drugs and gang violence, and the same Democrats who today have never hesitated to use class warfare to achieve their ends, which is pure and simply absolute power over everyone else.

    I think it is getting worse, not better. I think we are moving steadily toward another civil war. I think the leftists would like nothing better, particularly if a leftist occupies the white house. Obama’s been itching to implement martial law since his first day in office. And by the way, this is all possible because the moron who left you that comment was educated in an American public school. There are thousands more just like him/her/it.

    • I pray that you are wrong about another civil war, Mustang. It would be a sad situation for our country.

      However, you are right about the regional differences that are present in our society. They have always been there and certain people have taken advantage of them to push their agenda. They have done a masterful job of that and thus, we see some of the results today. Class warfare is rampant and racism is alive and well. By that, I mean both are being used to divide America even further than it used to be, moving past the regional differences that naturally exist.

      You are also correct in your conclusion about the American public school system. That is one of the reasons why we homeschooled our daughters and we do not regret that decision.

  • Who to thank? Americans. Because they shed their individualism for the collective cult and glorified their collective leader (the president).

    The Constitution doesn’t provide for a “leader” president, but that document was flushed long ago. The Revolution was fought against government, but we fight with our neighbors in the name of Democrats and Republicans instead. The State has become the American’s Golden Calf. It leads us, protects us, feeds us, and shelters us. If given enough power, it can (and will) immanentize the eschaton both at home and abroad.

    If Obama wins, we’ll get four more years of the same minus any major legislative enactments like ObamaCare. Second terms are rarely, uh, productive. If Romney wins, we’ll get 8 more years of the Bush admin on steroids. Never forget, GWB expanded welfare at a greater pace than even LBJ. And like they did with GWB, conservatives will support Romney all the way. So where will that leave the conservative movement and conservatism in general 8 years hence?

    RomneyCare for ObamaCare, Mankiw for Bernanke, stimulus, drones, permanent war, surveillance/police state … same as it ever was …

    I was born 44 years ago. It already isn’t the America I grew up in. Hasn’t been for a long time. Regardless of outcome, this election will change nothing of significance. The trajectory of government over my 44 years proves this point.

    Depressing enough for you? 8-O

    • To be sure, America has changed. I just turned 50 and it certainly is much different than when I was growing up.

      I know you do not trust Mitt Romney, any more than you trust Barack Obama. On that point, we will have to disagree. Romney is certainly no conservative angel, but I do contend he will be much better than Obama. I believe he at least has some character and integrity, whereas Obama has neither.

      And yes, it is depressing. :(

  • Steve Dennis

    How anyone can vote for Obama after Benghazi I will never know! This should disqualify him in the minds of the voters but many people either don’t know or don’t care about this and that says something in and of itself.

    • It puzzles me greatly at how so many Americans fail to realize how serious this matter is. As I said at your blog, this election shouldn’t even be close. Obama shouldn’t be in the same time zone as Romney, yet he continues to stay close, or slightly ahead.

  • Holly

    I would never vote for Obama, and certainly not after Benghazi. That is unforgivable and No explanation. Just lies.Obama wants to cut military funding. He wants to cut even more of our missels out. He wants to bring American down to an even playing field for other small nations in Africa and other places. This man is laughing at the US for being foolish enough to elect him as president without ever vetting him. Wake up people. For the ones voting because of handouts…..we have no money. We are broke. No body is getting anything but more taxes. Obama care will do nothing for you.
