If Obama Wins a Brutal Reelection, What Then?

The question is;

If Obama wins re-election, can he handle the wider divisions that will surely be caused by the continuing relentless campaign attacks ?

Will he get "super" power hungry ?

Will he bypass Congress and public opinion even more than he has already ?

Romney is not even the official Republican nominee yet.

The campaign brutality is going to get 5x worse.

Romney has no National political "experience", only a Governorship.

Obama has a horrible record as far as the majority of citizens are concerned.

Many of Obama's "tricks" are being exposed by the dozens.

Romney is "rich" as many resent that fact.

NationalJournal -- July 19, 2012

If Obama wins a brutal, vituperative reelection, will he then be able to govern amid acidic divisions widened by his own attacks?

It’s only July, and President Obama’s campaign has already called Mitt Romney an outsourcing, job-killing, company-bankrupting whiner who may also be a tax cheat and a felon. The brass knuckles are out, the presumptive Republican nominee is bleeding, and Obama is selling off his likability as if it were an inexhaustible commodity.

But is it? Can voters tolerate the lurch from preaching hope and change to mocking Romney’s off-key rendition of “America the Beautiful” and hurling contestable allegations that he oversaw the outsourcing of jobs to foreign countries? And even if they do, does Obama’s team see a governing path for a reelected president who has so toxically attacked his rival?

If Obama Wins a Brutal Reelection, What Then?

If Obama wins, will that force many citizens to stay "under the radar" to avoid the "wrath" ?

Will Obama be "trusted" as much as he was in 2008 ?

Doesn't matter who wins this election...either are going to have a hard time getting anything through congress.

Republicans have set a standard of abusing the filibuster...if Romney gets elected...Dems will continue that standard.

If Obama gets elected, he will continue as he has these past 2 years.

But I love how this is the latest excuse to elect Romney...because Obama will have a hard time getting things done

First thing is I will "hunker down". Others, younger and more passionate will take things into their own hands, believing that no other course remains open to "save the day".

The only avoidance of that could be through cecession from the union. If that become vogue/popular, it could be a divide between "Red" and "Blue' states with a complete breakdown of the Union.

A massive majority in the house could stop that from happening, especially if it reached a veto level majority.Gridlock continuing to be the order of the day.

An old Chinese curse, "may you live in interesting times".......

He'll win. He'll continue to 'fundamentally change America' (not for the better).
So what will happen? either Americans will wake up and it'll be too late to fix
the Obama problems OR Americans won't wake up and we'll deserve the fate
that we called down upon ourselves. (and it won't be pretty)

Has the birth certificate issue been resolved? I don't think he can even run again if one of his parents isn't a U.S. citizen.

Well America, you have two choices.

A Globalist Scum Bag -- Who has done exactly what his GSB friends have asked him to do.

Another Globalist Scum Bag -- Who seems to just want to do that same thing the above is doing, except in overdrive.

The difference?

How fast America is put to it's knees and shot like a dog.

That really does sum it right up, doesn't it? I really only favor Romney myself because I believe his way of taking us off the cliff might be slow enough to squeak us to 2016 and another fresh shot at one last try. I figure the other way, it'll be well before 2016 when things crash as some E.U. nations are starting to.

In the end though, yeah, it's hope against logic and when nothing says there is much to hope for from either one of them.

I'm not sure how you are coming to this conclusion...

"Republicans have set a standard of abusing the filibuster..."

The Democrats have been and are very much experienced in this type of political action...remember how they ram-rodded through the Obama Care Legislation? Behind closed doors, away from the press and away from GOP involvement?

The idea that we silently stood by when Pelosi proclaimed that "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it", is a sad reflection of what the American people have allowed themselves to be reduced to.

Do I hope Romney beats Obama this November? You bet I do, because I firmly believe that Obama will be looked upon throughout history as the worst president in our nation's history.

I venture absolutely nothing in your lives will change.

You will still have your guns.
You will still be able to scare your buddies about
"What Obama's gonna do" (it's always "gonna do"
never what he's done)
Your kids won't be forced into Black Panther daycare.
Christianity won't be outlawed etc.
It'll be a lot like now.
Maybe some infrastructure work will get done?

However by then...
If we are lucky people may figure out that EXXON,
China, Russia, Karl Rove, the Koch Bros &
billionaire casino owners are all on the same team.
And that most likely, they don't have your average Americans
best interest at heart.

I would have said those very same things in 2000. I'd have thought I was right to say it too, because I hadn't lived through the assassination of President Kennedy. I couldn't understand then what my parents had meant or anyone else about the world changing on an event. Now I do...and I'd give anything for a time shift back to 1999. Anything at all, if that option were real.

I've seen massive changes in 3 years. I've seen changes in the last 12 that make me feel like I live in a whole different nation that just looks like the one I grew up in, some days.

I'd say things can certainly change, and get worse......we'll all see together.
