Obama is not the cool, calm, and collected guy that he portrays publicly; he's far from it. Obama is described privately as a thin-skinned hot-head when it comes to questioning his policies, or anything else, for that matter.

Though there has been a slight shift upward in Obama's poll numbers, Obama knows the real temperature of the American people. Here are 10 indicators as to why Obama will have sleepless nights leading up to the election of 2012:

    1. Obama started African Americans for Obama. When blacks supposedly voted at 95 percent for Obama in the last election, one has to question his motives in starting this group. The answer is that Obama's poll numbers among blacks have fallen back to their lowest point, a clear sign that Obama is feeling the pressure. If Obama loses his street cred amongst blacks, he will likely be abandoned by other groups. Obama must have the "race" element in 2012, even though the black vote will be much less significant in 2012. By the way, how would the media have covered "White Americans for McCain?"

    2. Obama started a Spanish-language website. Now, most people would call this clever; however, this move could backfire and is a pure sign that Obama knows he is in trouble. A country that requires you to know English should not have a sitting president with a Spanish-language website. It would seem to be pandering to the massive non-English-speaking population of Latinos. Obama has not chosen to pander to any other potential immigrant voting bloc, which could have many Africans up in arms. Why not develop a website in Swahili or Bantu? Asians, Jews, and many other ethnic groups might wonder what Obama's obsession is with blacks and Latinos, while forsaking them. This could lead to the logic that the president is supposed to be the president of all Americans.

    3. Obama's energy policy is pure comedy. When Obama took office, gasoline averaged $1.89. Gasoline is now at its highest point in history, averaging $3.65 a gallon -- and it's getting higher. When gas crested at $3 a gallon under Bush, Democrats were quick to put Bush in cahoots with the oil companies. Obama and other Democrats are blaming Wall Street, offering that high gas prices are "bringing families closer together" or that high gas prices are "saving lives." Nice try. The problem with gas prices is that they affect the lower end of the food chain the most. Poor people have to plan trips to the supermarket or buy gas in parts of a gallon. "I'll have ½ a gallon." Obama touts green energy, but he has not had a single successful example where his policy has worked, and despite the Truth Teams, Obama has wasted billions on "green" energy while people are suffering from a lack of "black" energy -- oil and coal.

    4. Obama now supports super-PACs. Aside from the multitude of flip-flops or blatant "untruths," Obama has now decided that for the good of the country, he must embrace the idea of "buying his next election." I suggest that Obama has forgotten that he bought his first election, and that took everything he had, despite a weakening economy, hatred of Bush, and a less than stellar Republican candidate. Obama vowed to raise $1B in order to fight the right, and his newfound support of super-PACs only proves that he's panicked about raising money and about what he will have to spend to put the genie -- his record -- back in the bottle.

    5. Obama has feigned shifting right. When a bona fide socialist begins talk of shifting right, you know he's panicked. Obama no more believes in the private-sector solutions for the economy than he believes that Rosie O'Donnell would skip a meal. Yet he is suddenly offering to cut business taxes. Welcome to Panderville. Many of Obama's panic moves will showcase the complete hypocrisy of what he campaigned on or truly believes, and how far he is willing to go to remain in power.

    6. Obama began the Truth Teams, dismantling Attack Watch. Renaming Attack Watch is like renaming the Department of War the Defense Department. Attack Watch was a dismal failure, because the truth is not an attack. Renaming Attack Watch "Truth Team" now allows Obama to stamp out the truth wherever it may occur. Obama is deathly afraid of the unvarnished truth. The Truth Team's assignment is to varnish it. So now Obama was for Keystone XL and the 20,000 jobs that it didn't create. High gas prices are good for the economy in the form of higher revenues and more lives saved, due to less driving. Welfare is good for the economy, actually generating $1.85 return for every $1 spent. That's the truth, and they're sticking with it.

    7. Obama is changing his slogan. Realizing that "Yes We Can" has turned into "Well, I Thought We Could," and that "hope and change" now applies to getting rid of him, Obama must adjust his catchphrases. Obama's handlers are testing various new sayings, but the bad news is that nothing is sticking. The new phrases being tested are "Winning the Future," "Greater Together," and "We Don't Quit," and Obama has begun lacing these in his speeches, but none are resonating, which is why Obama is panicking.

    8. Obama's foreign policy strategy is in shambles. Generally when a president has such a weak domestic agenda, he may be able to recover based on decent foreign policy. This is not the case with Obama. Obama's foreign policy has made America weak and the laughingstock of the world. It was said when Obama was elected that the world would love us, which has proven simply not the case. Obama has revealed himself to be much worse than Bush in foreign policy, and he has created havoc all over North Africa and the Middle East. China and Russia are positioning to remove the dollar as the international monetary standard, which would devastate the U.S. economy. Their recent decision not to support the U.S. in the U.N. with respect to Syria proves that the Obama administration is not taken seriously. Foreign policy will be a huge influence on Obama's re-election chances, which is why he will try about anything to shore things up before November.

    9. Obama is talking tough. As the saying goes, the shallower the stream, the louder the babble. Most people recognize that the bigmouth at the bar is far from the toughest, yet Obama all but guaranteed that he will serve "five more years" while on a Spanish-language radio program. It is difficult to balance tough talk with "It's Bush's fault." Further, Obama's constant and incessant apologies (and bowing) don't jibe with the tough talk. Again, this is a strategy that will likely backfire for Obama, as most people have begun to realize that the tough talker is generally weak, and Obama is no exception.

    10. There is no real improvement in any sector in America. Obama's biggest problem is that the economy is being held together with paperclips and Band-Aids. The fragile nature of things does not bode well, so even the slightest uptick in inflation will wreak havoc on the deficit. The prospect for jobs will not improve between now and the election, so the media is the only potential distraction from real unemployment north of 15 percent. Another budget crisis is looming, and most of Obama's policies are under attack in multiple states.

      Obama has much to be concerned about, despite being "The Money-Giver" to the poor. Americans have reached the end, and words just won't cut it. Further, Americans have tired of style and want substance. I believe that the new bumper stickers might be "You Had Your Chance!"

Which means that the libs are not smart enough to run a country, you know create jobs and not spend money the taxpayers don't have. I would say the demorats are the stupid ones these past 4 years,

        Well, knock yourself out with that. I'm not voting for an animated cadaver who flip flops daily, and can't relate to the average American. You must not be average if you want a puppet for the fascist corporatism of the GOP. Grover Norquist said all Romney needs is 5 working digits to hold a veto pen. Not a rousing endorsement by other Republicans either. The majority of voters are going to turn you and Romney down.

We may get turn down, but in the end if Obama is re-elected we all, including you, will lose big time. So prepare yourself when Obama shows his real Forward movement that he has in store for you and the rest of this country. Sure won't be pretty.

        lol, lets then refer to it as it should be then, the Obama administration.
        Oh and besure to remember next time you bash one of the past presidents for their spending.

        ""In terms of percentage of Gross Domestic Product, the government during FDR's administration spent by far the most money - firstly, as part of the New Deal and Great Depression era programs, then for fighting World War 2. Most likely, the Obama administration will be next, followed by the Regan administration, Johnson administration, and George W Bush administration.

        As an absolute number, remember that inflation makes it an unfair comparison (i.e. $1 in 2000 is hardly comparable to $1 in 1900). In inflation-adjusted dollars (e.g. $1 in 2000 = $0.05 in 1900), the likely biggest spenders would be:

        1.FDR
        2.Obama
        3.G.W. Bush
        4.Clinton
        5.G H W Bush
        6.Regan
        7.Johnson
        8.Wilson""""
        http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Wha...

        So looks like I am not the only one that thinks Obumer's administration are spend thrifts,

        Anyone can post to wiki. Reagan left a trillion dollar debt, the most is history then despite raising taxes 11 times. FDRs spending gave us the Golden Gate bridge, RockefellerCenter, and Hoover Dam + more. Bush, Jr. topped all, and Obama is still paying for his trillions.

        The country lived theough the great depression, and WW II. This is small change to those, but people today have become less tolerant of any adversity, impatient, and more self absorbed. If both parties rolled up their sleeves and worked for us instead of the next election we would be further ahead toward recovery.

        You do realize Obama has not anything to get us out of debt. You do realize we are DEEPER in debt now then when he took office in January 2009. Spending more money than what you have is not a good ideal, but it is even worse when you keep on and on spending.

        maybe they should make a real budget. look at where all the money is going, what is foolish spending. You know do the same thing, but with a bigger amount.level, like any good person would do when they know they have financial problems. You don't borrow money and then give it away,

        Perhaps the real problem is we have over 500 people handling millions/trillions of dollars that they didn't have to earn themselves. It seems easier to spend someone else's money (taxpayers) then your own hard earned money, Do you think that all the ones in DC have this much problem with their own budget and spending?
      • draguza belle 2012/05/03 02:25:39
        draguza
        Ok, a budget. Do you have the infrastructure designed to support budgeting? That's what I've seen Obama doing, is building an infrastructure. Those cost money, but in the long run pay for themselves. Imagine, for a moment, you were to start a business. Now, say this business would cost you 100 thousand dollars to start, but you only have 20 thousand. The first thing you'd need to do is a budget, I agree there. After that you would need to ensure you were able to obtain the money, even if it were just a loan, after that, you would need to build the infrastructure. Employees, equipment, a store front, goods to provide, all cost quite a bit, but you need them in order to start recouping the cost of your business. So we're 80 thousand in the hole, and we just spent a bunch of money to get started, but very few people are shopping here. Well, it happens, and that seems to be the issue we've ran into with the budgeting here. No rainy day savings to cover your ass, and now your business has to liquidate fast.

        True, there was debt before he took office. However, try looking at it this way, if you add up all of the debt accrued by every single President in the history of the United States, It would equal how much President Obama spent in his first three years in office.

        I don't disagree he's spent an exorbiant amount of money. I still have a bit of a hopeful demeanor that years down the road all that spending will hit its stride and pay for itself. I doubt it will, and yes, part of it is because of how the money has been partitioned out, but also because of how the Republican party has stated flat out their intention of undoing everything he has done.

        The amount of money spent is a non-factor, we were talking about non-existent currencies in the first place (There is not enough gold in the world to actually support currency, never has been, and now that gold is used in manufacturing computers and computer parts on such a level, we can never go back to trading it like money. We have to go back to exchanging goods and services if we want to get off the dollar completely). The problem that I saw was where the money was spent. Some good things, some things I would personally not have chosen, but at this point, the idea of negating everything just because it's Obamas would do more damage than good for the country and the world.

        Nice try, but the president doesn't spend as only Congress can. Plus a big part being spent now is for Bush's 2 unfunded wars, his tax cut, interest of Bush's debt, and Medicare D which will go on into perpetuity.

        Honestly, you are being contradictory. You blame the debt accrued while President Bush was in office on the Executive Branch. Yet, now that it is President Obama, the debt that has been taken on by the U.S. is now on the shoulders of the Legislative Branch. While I agree that the second term is true by definition, I also think that you are using it only when it benifits your position.
        Otherwise, I would like to point out that the President does propose Bills to be passed by the Congress/Senate. Is it not true that most of these bills include some sort of financial portion to them? Along with this idea, doesn't the President have the power to veto anything that he would see as hurtfull to the country (including debt)? So, in a way, yes he does have power over what the country spends.
        Either way, numbers are numbers. The total increase on the debt during Obama's term has been: $5,027,761,476,484.56--this was as of April 18, 2012 (Pres. Obama had been in office a total of 39 months). This is the highest increase in debt under any President in the United States of America. If you really do want to compare it to President Bush's full 8 YEAR time in office that amount would be: $4,899,100,310,608.44.
