Hey What’s it Gonna Be Obama? 250,200,150, NOW 120,000-Just Where it Stops, Nobody Knows?

AROUND AND AROUND HE GOES, WHERE HE STOPS, NOBODY KNOWS

Tim Reid, The Times of London

Barack Obama’s senior advisers have drawn up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins next week’s election, amid concerns that many of his euphoric supporters are harboring unrealistic hopes of what he can achieve.

The sudden financial crisis and the prospect of a deep and painful recession have increased the urgency inside the Obama team to bring people down to earth, after a campaign in which his soaring rhetoric and promises of “hope” and “change” are now confronted with the reality of a stricken economy.

One senior adviser told The Times that the first few weeks of the transition, immediately after the election, were critical, “so there’s not a vast mood swing from exhilaration and euphoria to despair.”

Can’t be having that..no way.

The aide said that Obama himself was the first to realize that expectations risked being inflated. Well yeah, quite a few groupies and sheep will have expectations dashed.

In an interview with a Colorado radio station, Obama appeared to be engaged already in expectation lowering. Asked about his goals for the first hundred days, he said he would need more time to tackle such big and costly issues as health care reform, global warming and Iraq.

Oh yes, Iraq has been very successful of late…so ya got that going for you. Let’s see, with Al Gore’s help, the greenies among us will successfully cause gas prices to be higher, forget offshore drilling, that is only good for the rest of the world..don’t forget China and India drilling off our shores..but then we don’t matter. Health care, how much exactly is that free health care gonna cost us? But don’t worry about it. We are all just peasants to be tamed.

“The first hundred days is going to be important, but it’s probably going to be the first thousand days that makes the difference,” he said. He has also been reminding crowds in recent days how “hard” it will be to achieve his goals, and that it will take time.

First Thousand? Wonder just how much damage can be wrought in 1000 days on top of what we already have.

“I won’t stand here and pretend that any of this will be easy — especially now,” Obama told a rally in Sarasota, Florida, yesterday, citing “the cost of this economic crisis, and the cost of the war in Iraq.” Obama’s transition team is headed by John Podesta, a Washington veteran and a former chief-of-staff to Bill Clinton. He has spent months overseeing a virtual Democratic government-in-exile to plan a smooth transition should Obama emerge victorious next week.

The plans are so far advanced that an Obama Cabinet has been largely decided upon, with the expectation that most of his senior appointments could be announced shortly after election day.

Don’t forget, with a full Democrat Congress and enough in the house..why you should not have to worry about any filibusters. No siree..no checks no balances…that’s what our founding fathers had in mind.

    Who am I you ask?

    I Am Adolf Hitler.

    Let us not be fooled again by the “Cult of Personality”.

    “Those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it”

    The methods of mass persuasion Obama is using are NOT new. The exact same tactics have been used by virtually every other tyrant in history when they were attempting to seize political power.
    These tactics are not simply a well thought out plan, they are instead, literally dictated by the psychological makeup of men like Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Idi Amin, and Barack Hussein Obama.
    Of all the tyrants in history, Obama is perhaps the MOST dangerous of all by virtue of his use of the extensive and technologically advanced mass media which was not available in the past.

    The main focus of this commentary is to emphasis that the core cause of EVERYTHING Obama says and does is literally dictated by his Pathological Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
    I strongly urge everyone to investigate the facts related to NPD, learn the lessons taught by history, and become fully informed in order to be able to make a proper decision on election day. Please use the links below to learn the facts.

  3. Now that his lies have disseminated far and wide and the wide-eyed, unwashed masses of ignorant believe that he is truly the ‘messiah’, he can retract his lies and it will sound like humility and modesty. If he is elected and the economy inevitably crashes by his actions, the blame will be completely directed to Bush. It looks like the perfect crime, but God is watching.

  4. That bit about the decreasing amount for the so-called ‘wealthy’, it’s bound to happen under any form of socialism.

    If you punish those that earn more through working hard, like through higher taxation, they stop working so hard and your tax income goes down and you have to keep lowering the thresholds to keep getting the same amount in. It’s the only way. Too bad more people just don’t or won’t get it.
