Is Obama Going to Get Re-Elected? Find out...

POLITICAL ANALYSIS
by KENT MANTHIE

What do you think? In 2012 what are the chances that Barack Obama gets re-elected? Well, it depends on several factors that, ironically, he has from zero to very little control over. Remember when George Bush I was ousted in the 1992 election and Bill Clinton’s saxophone-playing-ass got in the White House? That was, for the most part, because of the ECONOMY (stupid) – Remember? That was the mantra, post Clinton victory – “it’s the economy, stupid” – based on a “warroom” writing on one of those white eraser boards, written by big mouth James Carville, to describe what that election was really all about.
Well – in the early 90s before Bush I left office he had 1) raised taxes in violation of his famous “read my lips” pledge. But, though, he won Desert Storm, invaded Panama and ousted Noriega and then tried him & jailed him like a common felon in a Florida maximum security prison, living among rapists, murderers & child molesters. He was probably in PC. – imagine the infamy some nothing-to-lose lifer would get by shanking Noriega in the shower or bashing his head in with a broom handle or something like that?
Yet, after all that bravado and glory, the economy was barrelling south, in a bear market and taxes taxes taxes – remember! Then along comes Clinton and even though his pushy wife got in the healthcare debate and that plan made the pair look like a couple buffoons, the public quickly forgave Bill for that (but not so much Hillary) and when the economy started going back up, up, up – mostly due to the internet-tech bubble, the Dow kept hitting record # after record high – 7,000, then 8,000, then 9,000 and then the magic number of 10,000 and it just kept going higher and higher and in the midst of that of course he got re-elected – hell, unemployment was at its record low in decades at under 4%!
So, that’s what needs to happen and happen soon – this country needs JOBS – a lot of jobs – any way you slice ’em, just to get the damn unemployment figures back under 10% for one, then as far down as possible. Then there has to be a tidal wave of consumer confidence again – like, people need to show they are confident in the economy by buying homes (but not with subprime mortgages) and other big-ticket items like cars; people need to get back into investing too – like in equities, etc, but leave the esoteric hedge funds and credit default swaps and all that arcana to the experts not yer uncle bob.
Oh – and we need to clean up that damn mess overseas in the middle east and I don’t mean the Palestinian/Israeli problem that keeps persisting in its pesky way, but I mean get the hell out of Iraq – we’ve completely worn out our welcome there – get their damn army trained & equipped, give ’em some balls and be gone. Then concentrate on getting rid of those damned nuts that call themselves “Taliban” – “Taliban” means student – and these guys haven’t learned anything but hate and violence in their lives. They may pretend to know Qu’ran – but they only parrot verses that were twisted into lies and anti-Jew and anti-American/Western propaganda. These thugs are no more Islamic than the KKK are Christians! FUCK the Taliban and everything those morons stand for. I say bomb them all – their moms, their dads their kids all of ’em – because all they’re doing is sowing seeds of hate among their own supporters. We need to cut the heads off these snakes and give lots of guns and money to lovers of freedom and real education.
Now those two things – making a difference in Afghanistan & getting out of Iraq and then getting the economy back on track will spell re-election for Obama.
The only thing to worry about in the interim is the mid-term election this year. Things are going to have to rapidly change and take some sort of turn for the better -at least in perception to the millions of American voters because I shudder when I think about any more Evil, anti-American Republicans getting elected. They only want to control YOU – your body, your mind, your pocketbook and ruin the planet in the process. Remember – most Republicans are “born again christians” or worse and so they don’t give a damn about the earth’s environment because they have this literally insane belief that when they die they will go to a place called “heaven” and so, as their twisted logic would go, the earth is just a “way station”, so who really cares if we pollute all the rivers and destroy the air and cause all kinds of animals to go extinct – the Republicans don’t care – they could care less – they’re going to heaven (well – if it really existed, they wouldn’t be going to heaven, they’d be damned to an eternity of hellfire! – so see you GOP sheep in hell, hope you’re hot enough (bring plenty of smokes) -KM
