Will Obama "Improve" after the 2012 election?

Postby TaQud » Tue Apr 17, 2012 5:24 pm

If Obama wins the election, people will question if Obama has anything else to improve on. (Religion, Economy, terrorism etc) Some say he's already done enough, while others say he hasn't even done anything in office. I would like to hear NS nations on Obama's Improvement after the election. (if he wins it) If he improves give me a issue he will improve in. (Ex. Education, Oil, Military)

Hopefully he'll improve by growing a spine and not caving in to absolutely everything the Republicans angrily demand in the spirit of "Bipartisanship".

When Obama has a second term, he will no longer be afraid of implementing his schemes. He will turn the economy into a socialist mess and force private institutions to provide for abortion.

Feels like he's given in on some things and hasn't worked enough to gain support on other things. I really dislike his endorsement of what is pretty much the Bush doctrine as far as foreign relations is concerned. His handling of the economy just took Bush's failure further. We've got tangible gains now, but I wonder how much of that is linked to his policies.

Quit dreaming, he goes off and does everything he wants.
If Republicans try and stop him, he labels them as basically heartless and greedy, and then he goes off spewing ads blaming all of our problems on the GOP and gains unwavering support and goes on his way with what ever he wants.

It's the same BS people like him have been pulling for years.

Nothing to improve on? Who on earth said that? As long as the world turns, there will be things to improve.

But bottom line is that Obama will only make this great nation more Socialist like Europe a terrible place of socialism and too much alcohol.

The thread title here should be not Will Obama improve... it should be "Once Mitt wins what can He do to reverse the devastating Obamanomics and Obama White House Machine policies?"

As that is a much more realistic title albeit a tiny bit longer. But Obama has done so much wrong in his presidency it is despicable!

-War on Christmas
-War on Religion
-Putting Joe Biden to Sleep at a speech

-Obama-Care
-Being a Secret Muslim
-A Secret Kenyan
-Saying that he wants to decriminalize Marijuana
and the list goes on and on I'm sure of it.

So for the sake of America vote Republican in 2012 as it will save america.

Everyone: This is satire.
“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.”

No. He even mentioned in a leaked microphone conversation that winning the election will make him "more flexable", meaning that he wont have to worry about any political opposition and can lean as far to the left as he wants to. You will see obama stop appeasing the right and return back to the "first two years" phase when he was handing out stimulus checks, passing healthcare bills without reading them, and baling out car businesses that should have failed.

I don't know.

What I do know is that he gave a fucking 535 million bailout to Soylendra, which then went bankrupt, gave fucking stimulus to failing corporations, and blocked the Keystone Pipeline and has refused all proposals to do any oil drilling in the US, and has increased the size of the government while raising the national debt.

Maybe he'll fix some of that shit after the election.

I highly doubt it.

Here's what he needs to get done, and immediately:
1. Get some leadership skills in climate change meetings. We need to start fixing the earth.
2. Attempt to create massive preserves across at least 2/3 of the US. And that includes waters as well.
3. Pull us out of Afghanistan.
4. Help get 3rd parties equal representation in the media.

That's what I feel like he should be at least attempting to do with a second term

That would involve government intervention into the media.

I don't want that.

Nor should he. If the third parties are deserving of media attention, they'll get it. Free market, all that jazz.

It doesn't work because there aren't any incentives. No incentives= No business= No cash flow= No good living quality. People have tried to implement these theoretical models that you dream of, but it hasn't worked yet.


You know you have to work in a socialist nation to get rewards, right?
