Today's The Day!

Updated on October 29, 2012

No 4 More For Obama

Mulled It Over...

Yes, I mulled it over and considered the pro's and con's of early voting. I read a few opinions lately about whether to do the deed early or stand in line on November 6th with all the other people who want to kick Obama to the curb. I reckon the reason that struck the closest to home went as follows, "What if something happens to me and I die before I get a chance to cast my ballot?" That one strikes a chord. Better to vote now than to look down from heaven on the action on November 6th and see I missed my chance to make history. Not the kind Obama has in mind I can tell you that.

Next thing I did was pull out an old video clip and knock the dust off of it where an Obama supporter went back and interviewed her 2008 self in 2012. Now that inspired me to crank up the motorcycle and seek a polling place today I can tell you that too.


I didn't fall for the snake oil routine back in '08 because I'm old enough to know a con man when I see one. I kinda like to at least examine somewhat of a record of the candidate doing something in life whenever I vote for my President. I don't consider being a community organizer working for ACORN as qualifying for "doing something in life" so he didn't cut the mustard then either. I knew deep down that this wasn't going to turn out right and it hasn't.

So as I am contemplating on going to the ballot box in a little while I am thinking of the many reasons I can't bring myself to vote for Obama this time either. If he had done what he said he was capable of doing that would be one thing. Instead I seemed to have gotten just the opposite. Reflecting back on life I know I'm not fond of liars, especially pathological ones since they have convinced themselves. I had some clown on my FB page over the weekend observe to me that all politicians lie. My only response was "not like Obama can lie." That is a lame excuse for accepting lies in the first place. I consistently have had to give Obama "Pinocchio's" whenever he opens his mouth so I had to factor that one in.

Mesmerized By The Lies Or Listening To Your Voice Of Reason?

Unlike some I read here, I don't wander into that voting booth looking for the (D) or (R) because I can think for myself thank you very much. I also don't ask for a straight ticket ballot because I don't let a political party brainwash me either. I study the candidates, their record or lack of one and the issues. I have made those decisions before I get there, not while there. That's the luxury of being a long time registered Independent. I can swing vote with the best of em.

In Obama's case I had to make a list since I couldn't the first time because he had no record to run on back in '08. It turns out that he couldn't vote "Present" like he used to do in Illinois because Presidents don't have that option. I often wonder if anyone bothered to tell Obama that after he took the oath of office. So I made my lists remembering at the same all those thousands and thousands of things he said he could do and was going to do during his first term. But sad to say those two lists ended up being diametrically opposed. And that may well be the cause of why we see the incumbent who has turned this election into small things.

What He Said Back In 2008 He Is Delivering On Today In This Case

That video shows that he at least is delivering on that promise. His lack of success is pathetic but his own doing and no one else's. So I thought I'd share my list with you knowing I may have forgotten a few details that my fellow Hubbers can assist me with before I strike out to determine Obama's destiny on the scrap heap of historical events.

He wants 4 more but I sure won't give it to him after all of this:

  1. Trillion dollar deficits (Something about cutting them in half comes to mind)
  2. Raped and tortured ambassadors (Then covering it up and not helping those folks)
  3. Military with guns but no bullets (They just supposed to go bang-bang or use bayonets they don't have?)
  4. ObamaCare (Against the wishes of the majority of Americans)
  5. Obama Tax ( Wait! Obamacare isn't a tax. He said it wan't)
  6. Begging the world for forgiveness for our exceptionalism (His Apology Tour)
  7. Concealing his birth records, college transcripts, all indemnity-related supporting documents (Everything sealed up tight and spent millions to keep them that way)
  8. Green energy going bust Obama-regime takeover of industry (Government Motors) (I don't have time to make the complete extensive list right now)
  9. Fat-cat bailouts (Green energy bets with our tax money will suffice)
  10. Shaming our military (Grrrr....)
  11. Giving guns to drug lords so they can kill helpless families (Fast & Furious!)
  12. Praising socialist dictators (His buddy Hugo Chavez comes to mind)
  13. Disarming America (He wil have more flexibility. Just ask Vlad Putin)
  14. Pushing insane Middle East policies (Muslim Brotherhood appreciates our tax $$$)
  15. High unemployment (Even with jiggered numbers still counting 23 million out of work)
  16. Destroying domestic oil drilling (Yes, he claims otherwise but fact checks say differently)
  17. Bush-bashing (Constantly blames Bush or anyone else he can finger)
  18. Failed economy (Lowest growth since when? Been to the gas pump or grocery store lately?)
  19. Gun-grabbing (His henchman Holder's focus)
  20. Federal government expansion (17% growth in this area where we don't need growth)
  21. Unlimited imprisonment of U.S. citizens without cause (NDAA)

He Didn't Deliver On Even The Easy Promises

I won't use the Dem's mantra of "Vote Early And Vote Often" but I will say "Vote And Fulfill Your Civic Obligation." For my Obama fans just remember that you get to vote on November 8th. Have a great week.

      There is a long history of rhetoric in the circles where he was nurtured that include revenge, blame, hatred, and the destruction and reconstructing of society and governments. You would love the picture and caption that appeared in one of our local Ohio papers. Obama, arm raised, declaring, "I do not lie!" Give me strength.

      lj gonya - Obama, at this point, is saying anything and evidently everything he can to try to hang onto power. Try this out for size. He said this in Ohio on Friday.

      Fantastic. I wish this had been printed in every paper in the nation. When he was elected four years ago, he said that the Conservatives could have their opinions all they wanted as long as they sat down and shut up, and stayed out of the way because, after all, he had won. This morning I just heard a speech he made in one of the swing states that was nearly identical to Romney's where he declared that he would work with both sides of the aisle (for the benefit of our country). The flim-flam man is still going strong, and people still want to believe him.

      Hurricane Sandy is a pretty good image for the storn that's going to hit the polls on Election Day.

      Love that "interview yourself" video. Especially the fist through the screen.

      Guess it's "new mantra" time...REMEMBER SOMETIME BETWEEN NOW AND NEXT TUESDAY!!

      Well stated as I too voted early as well mostly based on the storm (though it lacked in my state thankfully) and I want my vote to count. Hopefully we'll see the backside of Obama come January. I'm praying this storm doesn't throw us over the fiscal cliff.

      Not much I can add here. We both know Obama is a failure and a liar. We can only hope he's forced to hit the road in January.

      poetvix - We need someone at the helm who has a clue about what our economy is about. Obama and his Keynesian economists don't have any idea about capitalism and free markets. We know this now as we see it up close and personal. This is America and we can recover from a disastrous social experiment named Barack Hussein Obama.

      This election isn't about social issues. It is about the survival of our Republic.

      It's getting down to the wire, that's for sure. The day is just days away. America is in it deep. We can't stand four more of the Potus and even when he is voted out, it won't be an easy haul back to prosperity. It's going to be a very bumpy ride even if he's toast. God blessed America for generations. May he do it again.

      Longhunter - Being the people person I am I talked to some older folks as I was leaving and they were coming. I asked them if they were "Mediscared?" They laughed and told me what rubbish that is. There goes Granny over the cliff after Oblabber raided Medicare for $716 billion to finance Obamacare. One older woman asked me, "What do I look like a nut?" I just laughed.

      My wife and I voted today, both for Romney/Ryan. Felt good. Now on to January 20, 2013 and watching the failure Obama fly into the history books.

      Excellent hub, Frog!

      TFTP - Bill Nelson was a Florida stooge in politics his whole life. It's time Floridians showed him the door.

      I am sitting here in the midst of a wild, wild storm and you just managed to put a smile on my face. Thank you dear Frog Prince. Up and everything awesome.

      My wife and voted early today; 2 votes for Romney/Ryan; 2 votes for Connie Mack to defeat Bill Nelson, the Demo Florida Senator and Obama surrogate.

      It felt good; the best I've felt in 4 years.

      And I'm glad Obama cancelled his appearance in Orlando, but Bill Clinton is here screwing up the traffic anyway.

      Well done, FP. If only everyone who voted for this chimera in '08 will remember why they did so and recognize that it was a mistake. My son, a fervent Obama supporter in '08 is voting for Romney. He thinks Obama's a joke. Unfortunately, he's a lot worse than that. God help us if he is re-elected.

      (Loved '12 slapping '08. I'd like to be able to do that to everyone who fell for the snake oil.)

      Oh and don't forget under Obamacare the seniors got shafted by Obama. They will see massive cuts in their medical services. Obama "paid" for the 40 million new people added to the insurance rolls by cutting Medicare by over $700 billion!

      White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has just announced that President Obama has canceled his campaign event in Orlando, Florida, and will return to the White House to monitor Hurricane Sandy. The White House also just announced that President Obama has also canceled his Tuesday campaign event in Green Bay as well.

      Think he learned a lesson from Benghazi and going to Vegas the day after? or is it still in his mind that there are more votes here at stake than in a burned out embassy half way across the world?

      I hope many people read this. I live in Rhode Island, probably the most Democratic state in the union, and I know a LOT of people who are fed up with this guy. Romney won't carry RI but it's going to be a lot closer in some of the "blue" states than some people think. Voted up, "liked" and shared.
