It has been a very rough patch for Our President, and I do believe it is going to get rougher still. Do not be surprised as the month goes on and August runs into September, that his campaign budget becomes tighter. President Obama is spending more money than he is raising. It will get worse. A president who mismanages the federal budget the way Mr. Obama does cannot be expected to manage his campaign budget much better. Lavish spending, it turns out, is a way of life for the community organizer who became our 44th president. The lavish spending on campaign 2012 will be looked back on and seen as one of the campaign’s greatest weaknesses. He can spend the money, but my guess is he will not be able to raise it.

Yet this week, he had other headaches, too. This week, Politico finally reported the dissension and backbiting within the campaign that have been rumored for weeks. You will be hearing a lot about this in the weeks ahead. The magical team that David Axelrod and David Plouffe put together in 2008 is falling apart.

At the American Spectator, we reported years ago that this team was in reality the greenest pack of greenhorns ever assembled to take over a White House. For more than three years, the mainstream media have covered for the Obama galoots. It is a perfect example of the Taranto Principle, by which the mainstream media’s biased reporting only encourages liberal excess. Well, now Mr. Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett and the rest of Mr. Obama’s minor figures who aspired to be major players are at each other’s throats. It will fall to the president to gather them up and lead them to one more term in the White House. Except that as Ron Suskind demonstrated in his excellent book “Confidence Men,” Mr. Obama does not lead. He cannot. He just walked out on another meeting.
There is more. Niall Ferguson dominated the cover of Newsweek to tabulate the carnage that is our economy. He also added up the foreign-policy failures of the administration. It does not look good. Mr. Ferguson rather rudely asked Mr. Obama to “Hit the Road, Barack.” Finally, the president reported that his dog Bo is overweight and will be going on a diet.

So, with all this drear, Our President hastily called a news conference the other day. He has not held one in months. Mr. Obama attempted to say that his charges that Mitt Romney has been responsible for at least one death and is a tax cheat were not outside the “bounds” of presidential discourse. “If you look at the overall trajectory of our campaign,” he said, “and the ads that I’ve approved and are produced by my campaign, you’ll see that we point out sharp differences between the candidates but we don’t go out of bounds.” Actually, if Mr. Romney is responsible for all the misdeeds Mr. Obama has laid to him, he should not be running for president. He should be behind bars.

Lately in Washington, the scurrilous tone of Mr. Obama’s campaign has made even the mainstream media uneasy. They again launch into their false theater about how “both sides do it and oh, woe is us.” They cite the Obama campaign’s claims about the dead woman and Mr. Romney’s taxes. They mention Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obama’s deputy campaign manager, who charged Mr. Romney with a “felony” for the way he exited his business connection with Bain Capital. Then they bring in their examples of the Republicans’ excesses. Inevitably, they go back to 2004 and the charges that Sen. John F. Kerry, then the Democratic candidate for president, had his war record mangled by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and other Republican apparatchiks. Though wait! The swift boat veterans spoke the truth. They even relied on taped congressional hearings before which Mr. Kerry charged his fellow combatants with war crimes. His problem was his record in Vietnam, not the swift boat veterans’ allegations. The mainstream media also trot out an allegation about Mr. Romney claiming that the Obama administration is “gutting” welfare. Two Republicans, they say, were among the governors who asked for some sort of waiver on welfare. The Republicans deny it. It is all pretty thin gruel.

Let us come to the point. Mr. Obama is reaching out to his very own special constituency. It is composed of those who believe that the Republicans would put up as their candidate for the presidency a person who in his business life would engage in fraud, tax evasion and even murder. Mr. Obama is casting his net for the moron vote. I do not believe there are enough morons out there to re-elect him.

    I believe the writer is correct. Surely, there cannot be that many stupid people in America, although with our terrible “public education system,” nothing would surprise me.

  • Karen

    Media Obamanuts DO support him…and they’re NOT pretending. See how fast these rats jump from the sinking ship in November! Granted, they will never support Romney, these media numbn*ts, but they will distance themselves from the fallen “messiah”.

    Let us hope and pray that there aren’t enough morons, perverts, criminals, illegal aliens, corrupt politicians, indigents, ballot box stuffers, Black Panther “poll watchers”, media disinformers, brainless kids, domestic jihadists and dead people to throw the election to Obama. Did I miss anybody?!

    52 percent showed their stupidity in 2008.

    The comments of many people on this site display an astounding degree of historical ignorance and an apparent inability to write anything but insults. By such writing all shall know where “the dumb butts vote(s)” are.

    From 1776 onward America has, in general, been guided by plutocrats and their conservative philosophy of small government that promised ethics, morality, and justice, but delivered instead pain, misery, and injustice to all but plutocrats and others at the economic top; and has therefore proven unsuitable as the governing philosophy for all Americans.

    A weak federal government encouraged southern conservative states to become American traitors by withdrawing from the Union in order to perpetuate slavery and state rights. Low pay and lack of a “safety net” encouraged child labor and efforts to end it were called “communist” and “socialist”. Visual proof of conservative encouraged – by small government ideology – racism and child labor can be seen by searching for “lynching photography in America” and Lewis Hines “Child Labor in America 1908-1912.”

    U.S. veterans have not been spared from conservatisms heavy hand of oppression as a search on “Bonus Army” shows how, in the summer of 1932, Republican President Hoover used tear gas and the Army with fixed bayonets to run WWI veterans and their wives and children out of Washington after thousands of desperate veterans from around the country refused to disperse after being denied early payment of a bonus promised them for their WWI service.

    After FDR’s 1930s economic and social reforms made it possible for a large middle-class to exist; however, wealth once again began to “trickle-up” between 1979 and 2007. After tax income changed per Congressional Budget Office Data (http://www.cbo.gov/publication/42537) between these years as follows:

    * Income of wealthiest 20 percent increased from 43 percent to 53 percent of all income

    * Within that 20 percent the after tax income of top 1percent increased from 8 percent to 17 percent

    * The bottom 80 percent’s share of all U.S. income went down

    Thus, “trickle up” of wealth proves the conservative threat of socialism in America is just another lie – except that socialism for the top 20% of taxpayers continues to exist.

    Therefore, as the Republican Party continues to embrace the ideology of conservative plutocrats it remains a party of “pain and misery” for most Americans and none can show otherwise.

      Yeah, okay. Perfect example of the foolishness we have been describing here. Thanks Barney for proving our point! LOL!

    “I do not believe there are enough morons out there to re-elect him.”
    Don’t be so sure on this!!!! The amount of fraud case are still rising from the LAST election.

  • forrealcommonsense

    If people had a little bit of common sense this man at the very least wouldn’t have been president. Sin and amoral lifestyle will destroy sanity and America promotes it plenty thanks to Hollywood, liberal media and the public education system (many of these are former hippies who just cut or lost their hair, shaved their beards, gave up their Hawaiian shirts and donned a suit…) Remember folks “garbage in, garbage out”

  • Sutekh

    If Obama is reelected look forward to BET releasing its new reality show. The pilot is all ready to go. It’s called “60,000,000 Stupid White People”
    It features Black Panthers chasing voters away from the polls, and Larry Sinclair has a guest spot as the first white man screwed by the President.

  • Darla T.

    You must remember, there are enough dead morons, to elect him!

  • slickzip

    I agree that ODUMBA voters are dolts and fools but they do breed and reproduce idiots as off spring and they vote over and over even after they DIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • patriot

    Too many Americans, unfortunately, are not paying attention, do not appreciate our history and visions for the future, are not mentally engaged, or capable in some cases, to understand what is happening. My worst fear is that since they are not honest in many cases regarding our voting laws and election system, they can steal the elections whether the votes are there or not. Recall the Attorney General’s malfeasance in prosecuting the “worst case of voter fraud” witnessed and documented in Pennsylvanil during the last election. Corruption from the top down. It’s scary that our country is no longer a land of laws and honorable intentions and a country of hope for the future.

  • Barto

    The Dumb, Blacks, Illegals, legal spanish, college students, majority of women (according to polls), Hollywood types (oh, I forgot they’re included in the initial Dumb) all Democrats and other assorted Liberals can add up to a lot of ignorant and misguided people…..so, WE on or leaning on the Right side had all better show up at the polls in November! You can’t fix stupid but unfortunately they get to vote and we have to count them all this time, lest we forget what happened in 2008!

  • JoJo58

    Of course Obama spends lavishly. He’s never really earned a living, and when it’s not YOUR money to begin with, it’s easy to spend it.

  • John Beam
