Can You Feel The End Approaching?

As Winston Wolf's paternal uncle and famed chicken-farmer Walter Wadsworth Wolf observed, "Let's not start plucking eachother's cocks just yet."

But the chickens are come a-roost.

The end hasn’t come yet, not quite. But you can feel it coming, a dull, oppressive presence like the heaviness of the air before a storm or the quickly widening fissures that consumed the House of Usher. Future historians, looking back on the wreck of the Obama administration, will mark with wonder the president’s darkly frivolous assertion of executive privilege this week. It was then, they will say, that his administration, that the President himself, officially entered the Period of Panic and Flailing.

It’s not going to be pretty. Expect a season of recriminations, grandiosities, and sudden reversals. The usual narrative holds that Obama asserted executive privilege, denying Congress the documents it requested in the murderous case of gunwalking called “Fast and Furious” in order to save his Attorney General Eric Holder. Perhaps. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if, at the end of the day, this spectacular piece of recklessness wasn’t regarded as the beginning of the end for Eric Holder, who will likely face a Contempt of Congress citation next week.

I don't know if Fast & Furious itself will sink him. I don't think the swing bloc which will decide the election knows much about Fast & Furious, or would even care much if they bothered to inform themselves.

As I've said, I don't think they do their homework.

But this is a dangerous thing for Obama, even among people who don't do their homework. At some point they take a look at all the questions they would have to resolve in Obama's favor in order to vote for him, and decide: The hell with that. That's too much work. I'd have to do an awful lot of homework just to feel comfortable clearing Obama of all this accumulate crap. It's just easier to assume he's halfway guilty on all of it.

And that's how I think people who don't do their homework tend to think. They split the difference.

But even splitting the difference does not look good for Obama. Not when you also have to say (if you're determined to not do your homework, and just split the difference on everything), "Well, he's not really responsible for the depression per se, but he sure doesn't seem to have done much to reverse it." Because the economy is so horrible (and getting worse, not better), "splitting the difference" is a posture that is lethal for Obama's reelection chances. If he's half responsible for a depression, and only credited for half-measures that half-worked, he's halfway out of the White House already.

I often chide people for mistaking independent, disinterested voters for conservatives. You can't mistake them for argument-loving, passionate partisans for your cause -- obviously they're not that, or they would be argument-loving, partisans for your cause.

But that's exactly what Obama needs them to be -- passionate partisans on his side -- in order for him to prevail. All of these independents who don't really follow the news too closely would have to suddenly decide to read a lot of left-wing blogs and stew themselves in left-wing apologias for Obama, before they could feel comfortable clearing Obama of all charges and criticisms.

Just as there is no way in hell they'd do that on behalf of a conservative candidate, there's also no way in hell they're going to do that on behalf of Obama. The amount of homework -- in this case, massive quantities of Kool-Aid drinking -- they'd have to do to find in favor of Obama is just too much.

I was saying two years ago that my Secret Bonus Prediction is that Obama might choose to not actually run for reelection. Although we're into election season now, we're not past the conventions.

I do expect things to get worse for Obama. I do expect the long-predicted preference cascade to show up in polls. And I do expect that the polls will register -- at least a month before the election, if not sooner -- that Obama has no realistic shot at winning the election.

Whether he steps aside or not will depend on when the public's Obama Fever (and associated Obama Hallucinatory Disorder) finally breaks. If he's got time left to bow out, he just might.

And on Fast and Furious in particular-- the press can thank itself for pushing this into campaign season. If they'd done their jobs properly, and pressured Holder to be forthcoming with answers about a massive hostile covert operation against Mexico including 2500 guns and 300 deaths, this issue might be long past. Holder might have either disclosed or resigned, and it all might be a half-remembered scandal.

But they didn't. Once again, they Loved Their Liberal Champions To Death. They loved Obama so much they never even asked "Is this constitutional?" Had they asked, they might have prevented a political, and soon to be legal, catastrophe.

They're his Number One Fans.

But Number One Fans sometimes don't realize how much harm they do.

21 Obama and Holder can't admit to making mistakes. Ever. It is part of their character, an ingrained part of liberalism.

I suspect most liberals are the same way--their brains are hard-wired to think "Everything that every liberal has ever said or done is GREAT." Whether that will get them to vote is iffy.

The alternate reality is so complete, they literally are incapable of operating competently in the real world, as they cannot recognize the signals that would normally prevent them from follies small and large.

I have a recurring daydream that the communications satellites that keep most media 'on the air' were to suddenly drop from the sky, and the Internet was reverted to 1997, thus forcing everyone out of their echo chambers. I wonder sometimes who would deal better in that scenario...then I look at what we have, and I stop wondering.

47 “I think all of us need to do everything we can,” the Democratic Governors Association chairman, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “That’s true of people of limited means, people of great means. You can’t just sit back and say, oh, because the extreme right is trying to buy this election, we’re going to unilaterally disarm.”

He continued: “I think we all need to put our oars in the water and we all need to row forward and I think especially Democrats of means have to stop being so precious about the magic wand that the president hasn’t waved on this issue, that issue or the other issue. I mean, my goodness, I thought we were working and electing a president, not a magician here. This is the real world.”

Pretty much every far left, or heavy, straight ticket Democrat, does NOT follow the news. They watch The View. And, hear soundbites.

I think Independents are way more observant, and intelligent than is given credit for, here.

Many are businessmen and women. Their focus is somewhere else. They are common sense people. Logical. Rational.

They are people completely fed up with the games played in government. They have seen it. They have been registered to one party or another in the past. They don't want it.

64 FF Obama/Holder are responsible for mass murder and the execution of the US Border Agent federally armed with a pea shooter against FF cartel machine guns.

Approaching THE END? The Republicans will be eschewed every bit as much as Obama's administration by conservative voters if they fail to nail responsibility via Congressional impeachment proceedings against Obama and Holder. FF is not "water under the bridge". Coupled with executive ordered "Dream Act", the FF program is a US ATF assault against the US Constitution, arming the illegal aliens with US tax funded firearms and ammo.

The ObamaCare FINAL SOLUTION in Britain:

There are around 450,000 deaths in Britain each year of people who are in hospital or under NHS care. Around 29 per cent – 130,000 – are of patients who were on the LCP. Professor Pullicino claimed that far too often elderly patients who could live longer are placed on the LCP and it had now become an ‘assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway’. He personally intervened on behalf of a 71-year-old who was admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia and epilepsy was put on the LCP by a covering doctor on a weekend shift. Pullicino successfully treated the patient, proving that claims they were doomed to die within hours or days are ‘palpably false’.

Obama is toast. There's no economic miracle any member of his cabinet can pull out of his hat and make things better. Nothing.

76 OT: Too funny! From Weasel Zippers.....



Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren turns 63 today, and
among her birthday gifts is one she probably won’t appreciate very much.
She’s in a tight race against the GOP incumbent, Scott Brown. The
state’s Republican party announced this morning that it is gifting
Warren, a Harvard Law professor, with a complimentary account at
ancestry.com.


“Since Professor Warren has failed to come up with any evidence
supporting her claims to Native American ancestry, we thought this
Ancestry.comaccount would make the perfect birthday gift,” said
Massachusetts Republican Party executive director Nate Little in a
statement.

79 here are no flip-flopping independents who decide elections. That is myth spread by the MFM to justify Republicans nominating a so-called "moderate".


What decides elections is turnout. Voters who actually vote always vote for one Party or the other. But the Party who fields a candidate who will draw out his base and the voters for his Party is the Party that wins.

83 Obama and his ilk are the ones who are so used to having others take care of their mistakes for them that they never understand that made a mistake in the first place.

It's that "magic thinking" that we hear so much about - they honestly think that they themselves are responsible for good results (or they leave before TSHTF, and never see the chaos that they leave behind).

Honestly, they don't understand why all of this "bad" stuff is happening, and I don't doubt that they truly believe that those on the right are conspiring to make them look bad. They are only used to their protective cocoons, and have never had much in the way of direct opposition.

Everyone is expecting them to "come out of it" and miraculously save the day for the Dems - it isn't going to happen, because the folks at the top don't recognize that they don't know how to fix things.

And they've run offtoo many of thepeople who might havebeen able to helpthem pull their asses out of the fire.....

If Romney wins, less pain but still pain nonetheless. It's going to be a death crawl for the next five months and that's the easy part considering what terrible shape this country is in.

It is simple. The Democrats are all running on "you belong to group X and evil Republicans want to take Y away from X and only Democrats are standing in the way of that happening."

It doesn't matter if its the truth, it is what they have. Remember when there were all those articles and lefties and David Frumites repeating the "Republicans are running on fear" mantra? That is literally all the Dems have.

The party would
never, ever, even hint that he should go.
Even if someone did in private, it would be the most closely held secret
in Washington.



No, Obama will come to the decision to drop out because of
his ego. He can’t stand the idea of
losing and being the reason for a massive defeat. He’s not retarded, he’ll look at his options
and, as he’s has done his entire life, he will pick the one that is best for
Barack Obama.



He will take the campaign money and declare that he will run
for president again, when the country is over the partisan hysterics and racist
tone it is in today. He is ready to
lead, but the country has just not matured to the point that they are ready to
follow. Much more bullshit will follow.

On this, LaRouche was correct while the RNC Chair Steele never responded to his own poll perpetually wondering whether or not to call Obama a socialist.

117 The Clintons have been awfully quiet of late.

I wonder if they will pull a draft Hillary move at the convention with Corey Booker as VP pick?

If Obama goes quietly, the Democrat party implodes in a circular firing squad of the race card by the CBC.

But he won't go quietly which will result in the same.

And either way, the Democrat party is finished. I predict that if this scenario plays out, the ultra hard core leftists and CBC split off to form their own family.

He already gave himself an out by saying if things didn't turn around, blah blah blah, one term "proposition."

The only problem I see with this is:

- the sheer amount of money given to him means so many political strings and promises...

- he won't be worth as much if he leaves with his tail between his legs

- he will also lose some "prestige" and/or respect that he is banking on in the future. (e.g. international post?; new book?; loved by all)

Believing as I do, I have concluded that I should not permit the Presidency to become involved in the partisan divisions that are developing in this political year.

With America's sons being shot on our borders far away, with America's future under challenge right here at home, with our hopes and the world's hopes for me shutting the fuck up, I do not believe that I should devote an hour or a day of my time to any personal partisan causes or to any duties other than the awesome duties of this office--the Presidency of your country.

Accordingly, I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.

(But I will still go golfing every day. So suck it biotches)

If that were to happen, please G-d, it's up to us to make sure that we purge the RINOs. Then we can really have a good shot at rolling back the hundred year advance of the leviathan and get back to the Constitution!

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord

Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord



Well if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand

I've seen your face before my friend, but I don't know if you know who I am

Well I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes

So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you've been

It's all been a pack of lies



And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

SCOAMF has insured that no Democrat will be elected to the Presidency for the next 20 years. They have no one in the wings to step up that isn't part of the old, decrepit machine. On the other hand the Republicans have a lot on new young blood on the rise.

156 @70 When in history did a President decline to run for re-election because they thought they'd lose?

1968 - LBJ - " I shall not seek and I will not accept the nomination of my party as your President."

http://is.gd/WqBicY

"What we have won when all our people were united must not be lost in partisanship. I have concluded that I should not permit the Presidency to become involved in partisan decisions."

Mr. Johnson, acknowledging that there was "division in the American house," withdrew in the name of national unity, which he said was "the ultimate strength of our country."

If he pulled out, it would be such a loser move that it would do incredible damage to the democratic party. I don't think it would make any difference who ran in his place.

Also, I believe that Obama's ego would not allow him to do something like that. An entire lifetime of unearned self esteem has probably convinced him that he really is a great president and his critics are just too dumb to realize it.

166 Dick Morris may be wrong on some predictions, but he does his polling homework. 80% of undecideds break against the incumbent if he is below 50% approval. His approvals are 45 or so and the MFM is still not telling the whole story on SCOAMF. The more they learn, the more disappointed they will be. Some form of 'The MFM hid the truth from you 4 years ago. They are just this year reading his book. They lied to you by hiding the facts from you.' would go a long way to making their transition to our side.

175 I think you miss my point. If the Dem party splits in two, the Republicans will or should be unbeatable, at least on the national level, for at least a generation.

--

I don't think the Progressives represent that large a share of their party. I think they're smaller than our Evangelical wing.

I guess I'm influenced by having grown up with a Kennedy Democrat turned Republican, but I think that core of their party exists and can be resurrected. If they dump the Progressives, they will be in a better position to recruit Indies and some Republicans. The current incarnation of the Democrat party is such a distortion of what they once were.

If we had a Reagan type to attract Democrats into our party I might feel differently. But I don't see that happening in the next 4-8 yrs. They may crossover to vote, but it's out of desperation. If the Dems run an Evan Bayh type next time, they can regain power.

176 I often chide people for mistaking independent, disinterested voters for conservatives.

Not all independants are disinterested. There's no proof of that, that these elections are being decided by this mythical middle of mush-heads.

Jonah Goldberg was arguing with Matt Welch the other day, as he has before,that these people are a very very small fraction of the electorate and not as big as they are made out to be.

Because it is made out that everyone who likes to posture themselves in the middle is one of these confused mushheads who don't know what's going on, but we know that isn't true. Many, many people posture in the middle without actually being there, they are hacktastic partisans with firm ideological views, which they arbitrarily declare to be in the middle and centrist.

The other thing to keep in mind is that not all people eligible to vote, vote. Winning a vote is not just a game of getting that 2% of a static electorate. You can MAKE voters.

Frankly, I think among the people who are not paying any attention to politics (and often not voting), there are more mush-heads, and more communists, and more rock-ribbed conservatives out there than any candidate will ever get to polls all at once.

It's not static.

211 No one died in Watergate.
--
not even the DNC Convention officially hired whores that the freelance Republican burglars meant to expose when caught.

Watergate was Nixon's downfall not for ordering a burglary, but upon discovery that it happened, in ordering a cover-up rather than hanging those asshats out to dry, chips fall where they may. Then the question of lying under oath, rather than persist insisting that he wasn't a crook, he folded just as he did when he allowed the Kennedy victory from what he felt had been massive voter fraud, for the good of the nation's unity, to maintain the continuity from one administration to the next.

There is NO COMPARISON between Nixon's Watergate and Obama's entirely unconstitutional administration, of which Fast and Furious is but one of his administration's illegally programmed conspiracies.

Though Nixon meant to expand Executive Powers, and though he was Kissinger's puppet, Nixon still held the Constitution in regard. Whereas, Obama has no place in his legacy for the US Constitution. Obama has spent his entire administration destroying Constitutional Governance.

The Democrat party was taken over lock, stock and barrel by the hardcore commies in '72 when they nominated McGovern. That's why people (I use that term loosely) like Pelosi and Howard Dean are in the leadership. Moderate Dems and Reagan Democrats like Zell Miller jumped ship ages ago.

Iwonder why the laser focus on this particular group of immigrants. The other night I was out and about and it suddenly struck me: the entire Obama war machine is so focused on the "Latin" Brown people, they're ignoring the significant Asian immigrant population, including those from the subcontinent. These people for the most part are educated and entrepreneurial...I don't know their voting habits, but I can't imagine they're terribly socialistic and lib/dem loving.

But that's exactly what Obama needs them to be -- passionate partisans on his side -- in order for him to prevail."

That's the thing the pundits don't seem to quite get here. President Obama isn't popular enough to glide into victory as an incumbent, people have to really be on his side to want him back in office, and hardly anyone is in that position. Even blacks who will vote for the black dude over ANYONE else will not get out in very big numbers this time around. Its one thing to say "yeah well he's my man" and its another to say "and I'll go out of my way to make sure he stays in office while I go for my unemployment check as food prices keep going up."

This is the first election in a while in which both sides are reduced to saying "better than the other guy" and that means doom for the incumbent in this political atmosphere, particularly with the economy the way it is.

The disinterested voters that call themselves Independents are mostly people that want to believe that we can afford wide-spread social spending. They don't mind wealth-redistribution as long as they don't have to pay higher taxes.

The magnitude of the SCOAMF's spending and the lack of results has the Independents rubbing the sleep out of their eyes, looking around and saying WTF! A $16 trillion national debt, high fuel prices, increased food prices and high unemployment does not let disinterested voters feel comfortable about the circumstances the nation is in. They are going to look for someone to blame (not themselves, that would require self-examination) -- either President Obama or the Republican-majority House. I think most of the disinterested voters are going to have an instinctual reaction against Obama once they get in the voting booth.

I'm not sure I buy into the preference cascade but I do know human beings are biologically hard-wired as hierarchical animals, a group dynamic upon which all leadership principles are based. A leader cannot be perceived as weak in a conflict situation and remain leader for long and by 'perceived' I don't mean what the headlines say; I mean what a given leader's body language, tone of voice, posture, and bearingtransmits to those being led.

Jimmy Carter didn't necessarily lose in 1980 because his policies were terrible and his decisions were wrong (although they were). FDR had equally awful and ineffectual domestic policies yet managed to keep winning elections. Carter lost because he looked like the beta loser to Ronald Reagan's alpha winner on national television.

298 I don't see Obama stepping out of the way for two reasons.

First, he thinks he's better than everyone else, and who better to win? After all he's Jesus on a Unicorn, he can magic his way to a rainbow shower of skittles in November.

Second, doing so would basically be admitting disastrous failure on the part of the Democratic Party. We suck so bad our own president bailed on the election. And if you think Hillary can step up to the plate and win, you don't really understand women voters. Sure, some of them love her to pieces but the rest? Many women HATE Hillary, and not a few can't stand the idea of a woman president.

Plus: old, lousy job performance, and she shrieks like a harpy.

But, it seems to me that with the economy the way it is, double plus un-good shit, the scandals and the hubris he hasn't gained support anywhere. I understand the illegals love his ass now but he hasn't gained support. He's lost support. He's lost it in almost every group. I say he gets no more than 43% tops and that is not enough to win.

O/T But, in reading what is happening to Politico and the suspension of Joe Williams, etc.

I wonder if liberal online media will go the way of liberal talk radio - to irrelevancy, or in need of public funds to keep them alive.

When people are not being filtered (unions; ideology; liberal schools), like in the old traditional media, you will start to see, not just a stark contrast, but fresh ideas - like capitalism and free markets (duh).

And, people will go to where their beliefs are being engaged. Like talk radio, they go conservative.

Dropping out would be passing the ball to someone else, letting them play.

Interesting. But I think Obama can't see that far. He'll see the race being thrown into chaos and the dems losing. When he passes the ball to someone else, he'll have poked a hole in it. Game over. He did it all on purpose. His call. His wishes. He was in control.

endorsed and how they did in the primaries.
Second, floating the “Palin is being vetted” story brings the subject
into the press so that Mitt’s surrogates have the opportunity to beat up the
MSM about screwing with candidate’s families.
Third, after Mitt picks the VP, he would still be able to use Palin as
an attack dog and to pump the base.

320 150 whether or not the American Communist Davis was Barry's daddy doesn't change the point that Barry is one fucked up doodoo.

It still remains explicitly urgent to enforce the Constitutional Article requiring that every POTUS be a "natural born citizen" -- define the meaning according to both parents being US citizens and the candidate having been born on American territory; and define the onus to be on each candidate to produce his/her own proof of "natural born citizenship" before allowed on any ballot.

Don't argue that Davis' illegitimate son Barry, being a natural born citizen fucked up doodoo, proves irrelevant the Founders' wise requirement. It was the lack of Obama's credibility tolerated by everyone except those ridiculed as tinfoiled hatters.

That Barry was stuck in his virtual reality and dragged the world into it via Soros and international donor propaganda is a painful lesson learned. Require birth records AND transcripts of all presidential candidates. Hell, Congress passed an unconstitutional comprehensive campaign finance reform package. It isn't impossible to keep a bill concise. Letting the unknown, unproven, undocumented candidate onto ballot as "unworthy a fight" proved completely and predictably foolish, destructive and far too expensive in losses and debt. And given Obama's executive ordered Dream Act and the Republican Leadership and Mitt go along to get along, this matter of "natural born citizen" matters as much as ever if not more, given the influx of illegal aliens "ordered" unconstitutionally/magically into legal residents, amnesty soon to be revised into citizenship.

If Romney sticks to Unemployment and the Economy, and avoids ObamaCare (the expected SCOTUS overturn gives the JEF a Victim Card) and Immigration (it needs to be left alone, or F and F needs to always be mentioned), then the JEF has na record of failure, theft,... and the Nation will see this.

I expect to see the beginnings of a mass exodus of the Left, starting in late July: retirements, resignations to "spend more time with the family", acceptance of acadmic/private-sector jobs, etc. ... and muted vows to continue the fight ...

346 for those who say he's too egotistical to get out, I'd point out his ego
cuts the other way, too: Can he stand to have a defeat if it seems
certain?


I've speculated that Obama's dramatic pandering moves of late (e.g. on gay marriage, illegal immigration) might not (just) be about ginning up votes and funds from his base, might not (just) be about trying to win the election. After all, such moves are political gambles that may well lose Obama at least as many votes as they gain.

What such stunts do is provide Obama with a way to save face, to cushion and indeed flatter his ego, if/when he loses the election-- especially in the eyes of his liberal base. They're a way for Obama to retain his "historic, unprecedented" image (first black gay Mexican etc. POTUS), and a way for the MSM to explain a humiliating Carter-like loss that's actually a compliment to Obama.

They can say O was ahead of his time, too good for us, bravely did the right yet politically risky things, things that bigoted stupid Americans were too retrograde to appreciate-- and that's why he lost. Obama lost because Americans are homophobic xenophobic bigots... not because Obama's a SCOAMF.

I think Obama's narcissistic personality is more concerned about protecting and gratifying his ego than about a second term as POTUS per se. An electoral defeat would be crushing not so much because he'd lose the opportunity of a second term (honestly I suspect Obama despises most of what the presidenting job turned out to be, he thought it would be a piece of cake and he'd be the bestest preezy ever, didn't turn out that way); but rather because he would have to suffer the humiliation of *rejection*. But if that defeat can be rationalized and explained in a way doesn't just compliment but glorifies him-- he lost because he's too good for us, and history will crown him with the glory that stupid bigoted voters denied him-- then that defeat won't sting as much.

Indeed, if (as it sometimes seems) Obama is sick of presidenting (as opposed to campaigning and lapping up adulation from celebrities), then an electoral defeat that paradoxically bathes him in glory would be the best of all worlds for him. Of course he'd be deluding himself, but narcissistic delusion goes a long way.

"Iwonder why the laser focus on this particular group of immigrants. The
other night I was out and about and it suddenly struck me: the entire
Obama war machine is so focused on the "Latin" Brown people, they're
ignoring the significant Asian immigrant population, including those
from the subcontinent. These people for the most part are educated and
entrepreneurial...I don't know their voting habits, but I can't imagine
they're terribly socialistic and lib/dem loving."

It seems clear to me: they're importing a new working class, to replace the white bitter-clingers. A working class that'll keep its head down and its mouth shut and vote the way its betters tell it. And if the collapse of wages for working-class jobs forces the bitter clingers into poverty, so much the better.
