Fears Grow as Obama Hits Trail
On the same day that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was taking steps to jump-start bipartisan talks to avert a government shutdown, President Barack Obama was in Florida trying to jump-start something else: his 2012 re-election campaign.
While there may be 609 days to go until the presidential election, Obama has already begun reverting to campaign mode — and some Democrats are starting to worry that their most important ally won’t be there when they need him the most on Capitol Hill.
Harry is afraid that Obama is going to abandon him…waaaaa.
Here’s an interesting quote by Obama from the article while he was campaigning.
“Because of your help, we yanked this economy out of what could have been a Great Depression. Because of your help, we passed the historic health care bill. Because of your help, we ended ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ … That’s because of you,” he told the crowd.
“I need you to do it again,” Obama continued. “We don’t just want your money. We want your time and we want your energy. We want your ideas. We want you passionate about this being important.”
Is this guy so disconnected from reality that he thinks this is going to win for him?
Lets look at the first claim.
“Because of your help, we yanked this economy out of what could have been a Great Depression.”
How could he make such a statement?
In order to prove this outlandish claim Obama needs to show evidence of jobs that would have been lost if it wasn’t for his economic policies saving them. Not just one job, but tens of thousands of them need to be proven saved by his policies.
Here’s the problem, there is no such data in existence to back this claim up, so this assertion is completely unfounded and based on his own imagination.
“Because of your help, we passed the historic health care bill”
The health care bill was forced on the American people against their will and is unconstitutional, the American people don’t want it and the result of the 2010 elections was America rebuking Obama for it.
In this statement he is clearly pandering to his socialist base (which should already be locked in) and implying that they share the blame.
“Because of your help, we ended ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’”
Once again pandering to his base, he is working on the homosexual community vote.
Now comes the ‘serve me for free while I take your money’ exhortation.
“We don’t just want your money. We want your time and we want your energy. We want your ideas. We want you passionate about this being important.”
Is this guy for real?
Look what he is saying!
Not only do I want your cash I want free labor as well!
On the flip side of the coin, Obama is running early and trying to build up his base…This means that he knows he is in trouble.
His base should already be a locked in and Obama should be in Washington taking care of the peoples business but instead he is out campaigning.
The elections are over a year away and Obama (being the sitting democrat president) doesn’t need to campaign this early unless he is challenged, which he is not, from within his own party.
This looks to me like a desperate man scrambling to convince people that things are not as bad has they seem and I don’t think people are going to buy that.
Obama is beatable in 2012.
