Obama is Endangered by Democratic Defectors


Media commentators, especially those in the Republican Establishment, continually dispirit conservatives by talking about the alleged “weakness” of the Republican presidential field and how most, if not all of the party’s candidates “can’t win” in 2012. Others magnify underlying schisms between the party’s factions: economic conservatives vs. social conservatives, libertarians vs. neocons. What they ignore is that the Democratic Party has at least as deep an internal fissure as the Republican Party, one that threatens Barack Obama’s chances for re-election.

How serious is this fractiousness? Some are openly calling for Hillary Clinton to run for president.

A series of “Draft Hillary” robo-calls has targeted Democrat-leaning voters in Maryland, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, New York, and Arizona. A female voice states states:

America would be better off today if Hillary Clinton was our president. The Wall Street robber barons would be jailed, young people could afford college and find jobs and 6 million homeowners wouldn’t face foreclosure.

It directs listeners to go to the anonymously run website RunHillary2012.net and sign a petition to convince Hillary to run.

The mysterious calls and probably Republican-run website would mean little if it were a stand-alone. But an increasing number of Obama’s party faithful are wondering if they did not make a terrible mistake in2008. Nominally Democratic pollsters Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen even wrote an op-ed earlier this month entitled, “New Hampshire Voters Should Draft Hillary.” (Caddell and Schoen insist they have nothing to do with these robo-calls.)

Hillary supporters, known as PUMAs (Party Unity My A–), haven’t forgotten the brutal 2008 primary campaign, replete with reports of massive voter fraud in the Texas caucuses and phony ballot signatures in St. Joseph County, Indiana. (Hillary’s campaign also submitted phony signatures, but selective memory enhances the Obama campaign’s culpability.)

Members of the far-Left are unhappy with Obama for signing the NDAA and its potential use to permanently detain American citizens, launching the war in Libya, failing to close Guantanamo Bay, not going directly to a single-payer health care plan, and ratcheting up the war in Afghanistan.

Former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader has called for Obama’s impeachment and has threatened to recruit several primary challengers in the Democratic Party to pull Obama further Left.

And a number of party hacks would prefer Obama were not at the head of the ticket, because they know he is electoral poison and could set the party back nationwide.

    I haven't forgotten about the Whitewater scandal. I remember Hillary refused to turn over documents that she was ordered to. I remember how it took her WEEKS to destroy incriminating documents before turning the rest over. I also remember how she wants to remove parents rights and have the government control the children. Called "takes a village…".

    I'll remember all this if she runs for POTUS.

    Can we count on that? Hope for the best, but always be prepared for the worst!! It ain't gonna be easy!!

  3. Daniel L. Skillman says:

    Be prepared for her to come riding in as "Saint Hillary" upon her "Faithful" steed William to save us all from four more year of the Arrogant One. That is how she will be presented in order to befuddle the mindless, muddled masses that they depend upon for their support.

  4. Hag Hillary is no better than obama. Both have the same liberal agenda. Let's hope the less informed don't fall for her lies like they did with obama.

    • On the other hand, it might be an advantage if Thunder Thighs ran against Odumbass and siphon off a lot of Dumbocrat votes. She could be the liberal's version of Ron Paul.

    The dimocraps are just stupid and greedy and more……….P’s O S!!!! All of them. Worse yet, is the fact that the stupid republican’t bunch are suicidal! All of them. If one gets ahead in the polls, they start digging into the past of this one, and finding anything they can to smear them……and then none of them are worth a tinkers damn to start with. This is awful, to say the least. I like Ron Paul right now, to an extent, but there is some small quirk in the back of my mind wondering something that I do not understand. He is seemingly for America and the American people, but he is a lot older than anyone else has been in an election, so if he did make it to the Top, we had all better hope he picks a running mate who would be capable and willing to take on such a dreadful job! I don’t know, somebody needs to step in and do something to stop this downslide that we are all on. My deepest wish and desire is that Donald Trump would take over and run, at least, he knows how to run a business and make it a sucess! Never mind his marriages, or anything else, he is AMERICAN AND A BUSINESS MAN AND RUNNING A COUNTRY IS A BUSINESS!!!! He is a lot younger and this would make me for one, feel a lot better. Laugh, or mock me if you will, but I would much prefer someone of his capability and knowledge running this country! Someone that everyone from one end of the globe knows and is aware of his PATRIOTISIM AND MOST LIKELY WOULD NOT MESS WITH HIM! Trump is not one to screw around with, in business, or in matters concerning this country and her people! I’d feel a lot safer with this one than anyone else. And for sure, safer than with Cankles Clinton!!!!!!!!!!!!!
