“I’m going to lose, I’m going to lose, I’m going to lose…” – President Obama
“He’s going to lose, he’s going to lose, he’s going to lose…” – Democratic Strategists
“Yes he is.” – Random Guy at Makeaneffort
But this isn’t just about Managing Debate Expectations of a President that is tethered to a teleprompter…
Let me ask you when in your lifetime can you recall a President, or any elected official for that matter, publically stating he may not do well in upcoming debates? Take your time.
That’s what I thought.
This is about writing history before you can write it for yourself. This is about telling us why we think Barack Obama lost. The Democrats, and their Media outlets, must control why you and the rest of the world believe the President was defeated.
After watching the last 72 hours of the news cycles I’m convinced that the President knows he is going to lose. I don’t mean lose the debates, although he knows that too, I mean the entire election. And, not only does he know that, the Democratic Party elites know that as well.
As we’ve talked about before, the Democrat Party will support Obama right up until they feel he will be defeated… and that time has come. The long knives are out and this President will be thrust upon his failed foreign policy by his previously loyal Liberal allies… for the sake of the party.
You must understand why this is happening. The Democrat party cannot allow this president to be defeated on the basis of his socialist economic views or his socialist approach to foreign policy. In other words, yes, he will lose… but not because he is a Socialist. That can simply never happen.
If the Democrats fail to control the narrative and the conversation turns to one of ideology, they know they will lose not only the presidency but their entire philosophical foundation. That can also never happen.
So the full court press of message control and damage control is on. It starts with this run up to the debates.
Obama will lose the debates… all of them.
You will be told he lost them because the Middle East has erupted into a cauldron of hatred and deeply seeded wish for the destruction of “the west”. It will be positioned carefully that the situation “while outside of his control” occurred on his watch and the American people are holding him responsible because they just don’t understand. (read: not smart enough to see what great president he is.)
The talking heads will do everything they can to move the economy to the back burner if not off of the stove completely.
Obama must be cast as a victim, in this case, of the world.
This now becomes all about Statist Party Preservation. While this presidents Ego is so large, and he has surrounded himself with just the right number of sycophants that tell him he can win, I do not think he is stupid. He sees, just as I do, members of his party hitting the news nets and openly questioning his policies. As I stated at the beginning of this key pounding, I have watched the press carefully this week. It is clear to me that the rats are running down the ropes.
I invite you to do the same. Begin to watch closely. We effectively have 4-weeks until decision 2012… start looking for the Democrat Elder Statesmen, as well as random Liberal Spokespersons, to condemn this administration for its handling of the Benghazi attack and the current Middle East situation. Look for the same behavior on Fast and Furious which is back on the table thanks to Univision, not exactly a bastion of conservation thought. Remember, Obama will lose because of ANYTHING but being a Socialist. (Pay no attention to the Republicans as I expect it from them… but specifically the Democrats who if not cheerleading should be very, very quiet this close to a Presidential election where their guy needs their support.)
Don’t miss the Debate on Wednesday night. It should be worth it. I’m going to count the “uh’s” and “um’s” as well as any other guttural pauses which may occur. My record for a Obama speaking event is currently 161. It keeps it interesting when they’re busy saying nothing. Warning… do not make this a drinking game unless you plan to take the rest of the week off.
