On Friday, Rush Limbaugh made a statement on his radio show that I found both intriguing and accurate. Let me give you some background first.
For the past several months, the Drive-By Media and the Democratic Party have tried hard to tell us that the candidates they fear the most are those who are the most beatable (see Mitch Daniels) and that the most beatable candidates are those that they most fear (see Sarah Palin). They want us to believe that a moderate wimp would be frightening to Obama. They continue to act like they are rubbing their hands together with glee in the hopes that Sarah Palin or another genuine Conservative would be nominated by the GOP in an effort to stop the GOP from running a genuine Conservative. As I’ve said many times on Biblical Conservatism, I don’t believe them for a second when they spout that. Speaking strictly from a standpoint of wanting to win, why would a political party tell us whom they fear the most, in essence telling their opponents to run the candidate they feel would best beat them? The answer is, of course, they wouldn’t. It’s a silly parlor trick that those of us who are trained in the Liberal playbook have come to recognize with ease.
On Friday, Rush was commenting on this very tactic by Activist Liberals in both elected office and in the Media. His response is one that I couldn’t agree more with: “I hope they run Obama again.”
Rush is, as he historically has been shown to be the vast majority of the time, absolutely right. Despite the baloney that’s being slung at us by the Lamestreamers, the only Presidents who are really unbeatable are those who have had a great track record of economic growth, low unemployment, low inflation, and genuine leadership in the face of adversity. In 1984, Ronald Reagan was legitimately unbeatable, as his landslide victory that included winning 49 states went on to demonstrate. Reagan also had approval ratings in the eighties, a booming economy, and rapidly decreasing unemployment in 1984.
Barrack Obama has approval ratings hovering around the 50% mark that are maintained by a willing media who covers his every mistake and trumpets every victory regardless of small,, nearly 10% unemployment, rampant inflation, and $4 per gallon gasoline. Obama’s greatest legislative accomplishment is widely opposed (Obamacare) and he is spending our nation into oblivion with money that we don’t even have. People know about these details. They aren’t fools. The only question that needs to be asked is the very question Ronald Reagan asked in his 1980 debate with President Jimmy Carter, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?”
The answer is no for the vast majority of people. Four years ago we had 4% unemployment and a booming economy. Four years ago gas cost $2 per gallon. The reason we don’t have those things now is due to Liberalism. Yes, the housing bubble burst while George W. Bush was President, but any truly honest economist will tell you it was the sub-prime mortgage bubble bursting that caused the economy to crash. (For those of you from Palm Beach County, FL, the policies that lead to the sub-prime mortgage crisis were policies of President Bill Clinton.)
So I agree with Rush. I sure hope the Democratic Party is foolish enough to run Barrack Obama in 2012. I hope he isn’t beaten in a primary by a better candidate. I’ve said for many months that I believe Foghorn Leghorn could defeat Obama in 2012, and Obama’s record is the reason why. See, in 2008, Barrack Obama didn’t have a record. He spent his minimal political career voting “present” so he had no record to attack. He was essentially a blank slate for voters to project their own idea of a “perfect candidate” upon. In 2012, Obama won’t be able to run from his record. You can’t vote “present” as the President. You have to actually lead. You have to stand for something. Obama’s policies have bankrupted our country. People know it. They know they aren’t better off than they were four years ago.
Think about it, friends. The Democratic Party has told us point blank that they intend to run a candidate who has taken an economy that was struggling due to a crash from the last Liberal President’s policies and made it much, much worse. The Democrats intend to nominate a candidate who said that he had to spend billions of dollars on “stimulus” so that unemployment wouldn’t go above 8% (remind me what unemployment is now? Over 8%?) and then try to cover their rears with unprovable statements like “if we hadn’t acted, things would be much worse.” They intend to run a candidate who has presided over $4 a gallon gasoline and his only solution is “go buy a more fuel efficient car.”
I for one, hope sincerely that the Democratic Party is foolish enough to run Obama again. I’m rubbing my hands together with glee, because this is the candidate the Democratic Party will almost certainly run in 2012. They’re going to run THAT guy again…and on his record, his terrible, terrible record! Finally, a candidate who will make Walter Mondale look like John F. Kennedy in terms of his voter appeal!
The only way we lose to Obama is if we don’t go after his terrible record. And with the Tea Party on the scene, I don’t find it likely. So I say to the Democrats, please, please, PLEASE run Obama! I can’t wait!
