If you were thinking about starting a third party, now would be the time


Poll: Americans, 2-1, Fear Obama’s Reelection

When it comes to how Americans view President Obama going into the new year, there appears to be very little spirit of Auld Lang Syne. Instead, according to the new Washington Whispers poll, many voters aren’t forgetting what they dislike about Obama and want him out office.

In our New Year’s poll, when asked what news event they fear most about 2012, Americans by a margin of two-to-one said Obama’s reelection. Only 16 percent said they fear the Democrat won’t win a second term, while 33 percent said they fear four more years.

Yeah, I know, the title of the article is kinda disingenuous, but the fact is this year could be historic but in the way the years 476 and 1348 were. Neither party is excited about their options, they’re all planning to hold their noses and vote for the lesser of two evils.

I’m serious – the Democrats screwed themselves in 2008 but this should be a big year for the Republicans, and the best they can come up with is Mitt, Newt, Rick, Paul and Rick to choose from?

I picked a bad year to quit drinking.

UPDATE:

Oh my: 58% of Republicans want more candidates to choose from


What’s bizarre here is the eventual nominee stands a strong chance of winning the White House. These guys aren’t fighting over who has to take one for the team.

  1. I picked a bad year to stop sniffing glue.

  2. This is one of the most disappointing years for candidates I’ve seen, ever. Mitt, seriously? I suspect the Republican machine and its big players have in mind that it’s Obama’s turn, sort of like most Dem players in ’92 thought it was HW’s turn. But they should have understood it wasn’t. Their fallback of Mitt is pretty lame, even for them.

    If ever there was a time for a dynamic, charismatic third party candidate, this is the year. Anyone? Hello? I don’t think there’s anyone out there though.

      well, it’s Mitt because he and O are the same guy… the PTB don’t mind either one.

      As far as they are concerned, there is no way to lose.

      • ayup. Sucks.

        But still, I’ll be happy to vote ABO because it will make a hell of a big difference to him. The thought of that will still bring a smile to this moose.

        • Having said that, I don’t think there is any way in the universe Romney beats Obama.

        • elliesmom says:

          Romney has only won one election in his life, and he did that by a smaller margin than he should have. I get a big kick out of the media talking about how “electable” he is. Every other GOP candidate in the race has won more elections than Romney.

    I just read that Obama sat at a roundtable last night with donors who paid 45k each for the privilege. No press allowed because he “wasn’t making formal statements”. No names released who was there and what they were promised.

    This doesn’t bother the OWSers? Hypocrites.

    Hey OWS, here’s your guy if you’re not going to primary Obama:

    https://www.voterocky.org/node/1

    Formerly a member of the Democratic Party, Anderson expressed his disappointment with that Party in 2011, stating “(t)he Constitution has been eviscerated while Democrats have stood by with nary a whimper. It is a gutless, unprincipled party, bought and paid for by the same interests that buy and pay for the Republican Party.”

    And unlike Obama, this is a very accomplished man. Perhaps the Paulbots will get behind him ? Rocky could be Obama’s biggest threat for sucking votes away 😉

    I added a video to the post.

  6. WMCB says:

    The header on the video is misleading. Romney didn’t say “I like firing people”, as if he got some personal enjoyment from it He said “I like being able to fire people”, which is very different.

    In context, he was speaking of the difficulties of union shops, and the near impossibility of firing even someone who is doing a truly crappy job. His point was that if someone is doing a bad job, an employer ought to be able to fire them and hire someone else. I hate to defend Mittens the Ken Doll, but the press is deliberately blowing that comment up into an entirely unjustified character smear that evil Mitt gets his jollies and a thrill up his leg handing out a pink slip. That’s not what the man said, and they know it.

    Little fantasy is that mitts is gifted the nom and Palin goes Rouge with Trump, Newt, Paul, Cain and Bachman throwing full support behind her. Add a few disenfranchised Democrats for good measure. Then give Bill Clinton a mic anywhere and let him speak of how formidable a coalition it is.
    One can dream and it would make for great television.

    I am laughing my head off at the pic c4p found for this same story:

    So if there is to be a third party, who steps up? Kind of a short list….Trump, Johnson, Palin….And, once the “viral lying” starts in earnest, as that will be Obama’s major tactic….there will be no stopping him. Unless, the “alternative” media goes viral against him….show his ingrained Wall Street colleagues, bring all of the Obama facts back into consideration….Why did he go to Pakistan in his youth? What is his true geneaology? Where did the money from Chicago Annenberg Challenge really come from? What was his true record as a Senator? Tony Rezko? George Soros? the relationship of Obamacare to GE and Jeffrey Immelt? etc….etc….We truly know nothing about this fool and it is time to put the facts back on the table and go after them and make them public. Each “fact” brought back again with clarity and proof will make Obama’s collective heads spin. You can go on and on about which Republican candidate is better than the other but the fact remains that Obama and his legions duped everyone with falsehoods and distorted information. Everyone who is against Obama needs to be flat out against him. So who will stand up to lead that movement?
