This Thursday, The Supremes will strike out the mandate but will probably keep the rest of Obama Care.
Obama will greet the news with a speech about a (fictional) sick little boy he knows, who needs a new heart, who now will die because of the heartless conservative justices on the Supreme Court. It’s a lie but it will stiffen up his base and get him a few more votes.
When the Supreme Court announcement is made Nancy Pelosi will cry on camera and secretly vow to re-write Obama Care. She also will make up a lie about a little girl she knows, who needs two new kidneys and a liver who will now die because of the five heartless Supreme Court justices who voted against the mandate.
She will never mention the 62 percent of the U.S. population that was against having Obama Care rammed down their throats.
Obama will win the election. Don’t let the recent polls and the Romney surge fool you. This is an Obama rope-a-dope trick to get his base moving and push them to contribute money and get out the vote in November.
Obama already has New York, New Jersey, California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Michigan and probably Ohio in his pocket.
Let’s add up the votes.
Obama will get 99 percent of the black vote. Liberals and Democrats will tell us this is acceptable racism. The only black person who will vote against Obama is Justice Clarence Thomas. If you are white and voted for Obama the first time and are disillusioned, don’t be surprised if you are called a racist for voting against him today. The Obama-loving media is already starting to subtly play the race card.
Obama will win the vast majority of the Latino vote and that’s OK because Republicans have shot themselves in the foot on immigration. The Latino vote will win Obama the swing state of Florida. The only chance Romney has in Florida is to run with a Latino Vice President. His choices are Marco Rubio or Jennifer Lopez. I say he should go with Lopez. The New York Times and the rest of the Obama media is already working on sliming Rubio.
Obama will get 100 percent of the liberal vote. Liberals will moan and groan about broken promises and still pull the lever for him. Liberals love feeling like victims.
Obama will get the union vote. Forget what happened in Wisconsin. Think of the unions in Ohio and Michigan pushing for more Obama freebies.
Obama will get the gay vote.
Obama will be endorsed by 95 percent of the media.
And finally we come to the Democrats.
Let me first state that some of my best friends are Democrats.
They are political zombies. They keep coming. They never cross party lines. (Democrats, before you write nasty icky things to me, let me remind you I voted for Mario Cuomo, Geraldine Ferraro and Ed Koch. Who’s the last Republican you voted for?)
In 1980 Jimmy Carter, who is by far the worst President in the nation’s history, still got over 35 million Democrat votes. 35 million Democrats, allegedly of sound mind, voted for Carter over Reagan while we were in the middle of a killer inflation and a job-killing recession. We had lines of people waiting for hours to buy gasoline and Americans being held hostage by Iran.
Obama, who so far is only the second-worst President in this nation’s history, will get enough votes to win.
He may not get the 69 million votes he got when he was selling us “Yes We Can” and “Change” and all that other bull, but he will get enough votes to win easily.
And if at any time Obama and his gang feel that he doesn’t have a sure victory, I predict that Joe Biden will resign for “health reasons” from the ticket and Hillary Clinton will (after a loud family fight at the Clinton household) be our next Vice President.
Once elected, Obama will go wild.
He will, by decree, turn the United States green. He will destroy the oil industry the same way he has destroyed the coal industry. Pipelines? He don’t need no stinking pipelines.
Every cockamamie green project will get the green light and plenty of green dollars. Obama will make a stirring speech about our clean air debt to our children’s children every time a billion-dollar green project fails.
We will have cars that run 60 miles on a gallon of gas. Unfortunately, many of us won’t be able to afford a gallon of gas.
We will pray for the day when our unemployment numbers will go down to 10 percent. The unemployment numbers will flirt with 20 percent. Small business is doomed.
Obama will blame our country’s four-year depression on Bush, Congress, Republicans, Europe and the greedy 1 percent who won’t pay their “fair share” of taxes. And the next greedy 50 percent who won’t pay their “fair share” of taxes. What he means by “fair” is socialism.
We will become a second-rate country in the next four years. Egypt will be for Obama what Iran was for Jimmy Carter. When Obama went to Cairo in 2009 and talked about relations between the U.S. and the Islamic world, he said he regretted decades-old U.S. actions. He turned his back on Israel. That told the Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood the Middle East was theirs to take.
Want to worry? In the next four years at least five nations will have their own drones and a president who likes to play “who shall live and who shall die?” And now that the Obama administration took credit for cyber warfare against Iran, you can bet that there’s some little pimply-faced 16-year-old technological whiz in Russia, China, Pakistan or Iran who, using his computer, has the ability to turn off half the computer-run lights or planes or factories in the United States in one day.
The truth is when we re-elect Obama after the past hapless four years we deserve what we get.
I’m so, so depressed.
