With at least 90% of Entertainment people are Democrats and they can't get together to make Movies and TV shows, how the hell can they run Government?
That post was called: Why a President Obama will fail: Look at Hollywood.
And finally, another 2008 post another post with predictions:
If Democrats can't run their own Primary without highlighting an obscure committee during an election, how can they run Health care?
That post was titled: If Democrats can't run their own Election, how can they run the country?
So, as always, the Valley is ahead of the news by saying, President Obama will lose election in 2012, even if there is a Republican Congress, like in President Clinton's case. You read it here first, so subscribe, subscribe, subscribe.
Now why do I say he will lose?
1) President Obama is surrounded by sycophants in the media and in the White House; He knows no opposition, he will lose.
In The Prince by Machiavelli, the author writes:
I DO NOT wish to leave out an important branch of this subject, for it is a danger from which princes are with difficulty preserved, unless they are very careful and discriminating. It is that of flatterers, of whom courts arc full, because men are so self-complacent in their own affairs, and in a way so deceived in them, that they are preserved with difficulty from this pest, and if they wish to defend themselves they run the danger of falling into contempt. Because there is no other way of guarding oneself from flatterers except letting men understand that to tell you the truth does not offend you; but when every one may tell you the truth, respect for you abates.
Is there a magazine where the Obama family has not been on the cover? Has the Fourth estate held President Obama to his campaign promises? Who in the White House ever tells President Obama, "No?"
Because the media and his staff have a light touch with this president, he can be lobbied easily because he holds no core values (hence the expression, "The Harold Saxon Presidency, " in the Valley). The best test of anyone is to have people fight against your values. It strengthens.
Look at what Dan at GayPatriot wrote. When the Blogosphere was young, the Right learned to defend; Now in opposition, it's easy. Most Lefty Bloggers and commenter's only recite rote, and never debate. Heh.
2) President Obama worries more about American Emmanuel Goldstein's, such as Rush and Fox, then Overseas Troubles.
Again, The Prince:
Nevertheless, liberality exercised in a way that does not bring you the reputation for it, injures you; for if one exercises it honestly and as it should be exercised, it may not become known, and you will not avoid the reproach of its opposite. Therefore, any one wishing to maintain among men the name of liberal is obliged to avoid no attribute of magnificence; so that a prince thus inclined will consume in such acts all his property, and will be compelled in the end, if he wish to maintain the name of liberal, to unduly weigh down his people, and tax them, and do everything he can to get money. This will soon make him odious to his subjects, and becoming poor he will be little valued by any one; thus, with his liberality, having offended many and rewarded few, he is affected by the very first trouble and imperilled by whatever may be the first danger; recognizing this himself, and wishing to draw back from it, he runs at once into the reproach of being miserly.
Between Cap and Trade, the oncoming foolishness of Public Health Care and Government Motors, people will oppose. But President Obama and the Democrats are not focused on singing praises of any program, only with silencing American opposition such as Rush and Fox.
In President Clinton's first year, he helped the Republican party pass NAFTA; In President George W. Bush's first year, he helped Senator Ted Kennedy's idea of No Child left behind become law. President Bush also lobbied his own party to help Senator Kennedy's vision.
President Obama did nothing to appeal to the Opposition Party. NO-THING. President Obama did not find out what Conservatives and Republicans wanted, so the opposition became louder (plus the residual effect of the Hate laid against Bush and Palin occurred too).
And rather then focus on Afghanistan, he blamed Bush. More opposition from the opposition party. When the Republicans take over Congress in 2010, our memories will be long. And since there was no concession like with President Clinton, no inch will be given either.
3) President Obama does not Govern, but wishes to be Loved as a leader.
Machiavelli, The Prince:
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? It may be answered that one should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, is much safer to be feared than loved, when, of the two, either must be dispensed with. Because this is to be asserted in general of men, that they are ungrateful, fickle, false, cowardly, covetous, and as long as you succeed they are yours entirely; they will offer you their blood, property, life and children, as is said above, when the need is far distant; but when it approaches they turn against you. And that prince who, relying entirely on their promises, has neglected other precautions, is ruined; because friendships that are obtained by payments, and not by greatness or nobility of mind, may indeed be earned, but they are not secured, and in time of need cannot be relied upon; and men have less scruple in offending one who is beloved than one who is feared, for love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage; but fear preserves you by a dread of punishment which never fails.
Surrounded by sycophants, unable to deal with opposition, yet the need to be loved in America and the world. Each of these flaws in a person are not terrible, but when one is leader of the Free World, it is dangerous.
Because of Obama's wish to be loved, he will never see through the eyes of his electoral (and parliamentary) opponents. By having his people go after Palin without abandon, he generated an anger that will not be sated until he is voted out of office. Because Palin was martyred, because she opposes and knows where the Conservatives and Republicans are going, it will be Karmic majesty if she defeats Obama in Election 2012. No one else matters.
The opposition has found many weakness' to President Obama: Breitbart found corrupted ACORN, some of us noticed that the 60 Minutes Producers are in your pocket and Advance Publications need to be tackled before 2012.
Had any Liberal or Democrat ever thought of being kind to the Right, these attacks would not happen. But again, asking for love means giving some in return. Both Democrats and Obama failed this.
Tomorrow, thanks to Robert Stacy McCain (hit his Tip jar), Hoffman will beat the Democratic candidate and the impostor Republican. Virginia will be lost due to arrogance and NJ will be a fight to the finish. But if there is any corruption at all in NJ, it falls to this President, and will increase his chances of losing in 2012.
President Obama does not stand for any issues. He thinks he is better then most Americans, he is not humbled by being chosen (contrast with former President Bush [either] or Reagan). Obama does not understand the lessons of Icarus. President Obama cannot decide what to do with Afghanistan. Not Iraq, but Afghanistan!
My prediction: Palin will beat Obama 58% - 38% (4% for third party).
My question, Why do you think Obama will fail or succeed by 2012?
