Here is a recent news report from politico.com:
‘As states across the nation ramp up their efforts to catch illegal immigrants, the Obama administration on Thursday launched a new free hotline for people busted on violations to get help.
The hotline, run by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, is available 24/7 for detained individuals to phone if they think they “may be U.S. citizens or victims of a crime.”
The hotline will have translation services available in several different languages. ICE personnel will gather the caller’s information and send it to a field office for immediate action, according to the press release.’
Does this pro-illegal-immigrant policy seem like the type of program that a president would launch to curry favor with independent voters that he desperately needs to win re-election?
No. And there are just so many events and policies like this that you start to wonder: Is Obama throwing in the towel on his re-election in a deep psychological way?
It could very well be. It may not even be that deep. He may just be giving up.
Look at the way he pranced around Hawaii in his short sleeves and playing golf for the 90th time of his presidency while his wife burned up 15,000 gallons of jet fuel flying off a few days early for vacation, like Evita Peron. (By the way, the plane will burn up as much on the return trip. Where’s Al Gore to flip his wig over this obvious planet-killing waste?)
Doesn’t this all seem inordinately arrogant and clumsy PR-wise as America suffers in the cold without jobs and with less and less hope with each passing day of the Obama administration?
Yes. So what gives?
Answer: It may very well be Obama enjoying his final presidential perks as he prepares to be run out of office. After all, Empress Michelle has let it be known that she is not happy in the White House – because she is not happy anywhere.
Look at this shocking statistic from CNN in an essay entitled ‘Have the youth given up on Obama’? (with italics added for emphasis):
In 2008, the youth vote helped sweep Barack Obama into office. Americans 18-29 spread the word on social media, energized fundraising and went to the polls.
…The 18-29 vote is up for grabs in 2012 because youth can’t afford cars to put bumper stickers on and those t-shirts are worn out from too many days sitting on the couch unemployed.
The sobering reality: just 55.3 percent of Americans between 16 and 29 have jobs. And earlier this year, Americans’ student loan debt surpassed credit card debt for the first time ever.
Imagine that – 45% unemployment in one of Obama’s most dependable voting blocs. This is a disaster…
And don’t think that Obama’s all-smiles, all-confident public persona does not understand what is happening. Behind the scenes reality sank in long ago, that this guy is in over his head. That grey hair tells the tale… The numbers in almost every part of the electorate are all running strongly against this president.
And don’t think that the hard-core left-wing political hacks who put Obama in office are not following all this closely. This is their entire life’s work and they are frightened to death not just about what seems to happening to Obama, but what could happen to the whole Democrat party. Remember that Obama’s economic team abandoned ship en masse in order to distance themselves from him and his policies.
This is why some very vocal and prominent Democrats and liberal commentators are suggesting that Obama step down – so as to sacrifice Obama while trying to save the bigger socialist agenda by avoiding a Democrat rout.
But he can’t really step down because this man’s massive ego is on the line, an ego that will be completely deflated after his defeat this coming November.
Or will it? After all, Obama has achieved what he set out to do – he has given us a massive, unwieldy and unaffordable socialist health-care plan while shifting as much wealth as possible to unions, the so-called ‘poor’ and others on the political left. Meanwhile he has gutted the private economy so as to de-fund all the people he has despised all this life – capitalists, middle class people, self-reliant people, white America, rural America and anyone else who traditionally votes Republican.
And we must remember what Obama said right from the start; that he would rather be a good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president.
And he knows that second terms are highly problematic – Bush and the Iraq war; Clinton and Monica Lewinsky; Nixon and Watergate.
And after the public savaging that he has been taking over the economy, he knows it could get much worse.
So he may well be accepting the fact that retirement may not be such a bad idea rather than getting mired down in four more years. After all, the odds are pretty good that both the House and Senate will be in Republican hands after next November.
And what would Obama do after the White House?
You just wait. Obama is going to be Bill Clinton on steroids. This guy is going to cash in so big that it ain’t funny. And his wife can’t wait either. She LOVES those million-dollar vacations and $40,000 diamond bracelets but apparently hates all the trappings of the White House. She considers them to be merely traps.
And outside of the White House Michelle won’t have to wonder things like “All this just for a flag?” which is what she is alleged to have said watching a military flag-folding ceremony.
Yes, indeed, Michelle, all this just for a flag. For this country that you have hated all your life.
Imagine what it is like behind the scenes with her. Obama probably is anxious to be somewhere where he does not have to act like everything is peachy with Mrs. Stalin either. They are not a happy couple, rest assured. Because she is not a happy camper.
Obama also is seeing Mitt Romney breathing down his neck and Romney’s good polling numbers. And unlike the defeatist John McCain, Romney is aggressively hurling rhetorical thunderbolts at Obama every few days – about his golf, about his vacation, about his policies.
Still many Republicans are not getting the message. They have bought into the idea that Obama has a good chance of being re-elected. Because they actually believe what the media say – that Obama is a popular president whom the public secretly admires.
Nonsense. Imagine if a Republican president had the horrible polls that Obama does, like Bush did in 2006 and 2008 when the Democrats made big gains?
Yes, now the picture is clearer.
For Republicans not to see the potential here is quite incomprehensible. But then again Republicans and conservatives are not really overtly political animals in the first place – after all, conservatives want government reduced. Meanwhile the Democrat party is based solely on having political power.
And those with the power in the White House now are seeing something very disturbing on the horizon. And this president may be acting out a scenario long before it even happens – whether he knows it or not.
