    6 right-wing claims about a second Obama term - The Week

    Most we have heard right here.....

    1. Obama will jack up taxes and over-regulate
    Among the "disasters" awaiting America if we re-elect Obama: "Job creators will face massive tax increases" at the same time that "more Americans will come off the tax rolls," says Marc Thiessen at the American Enterprise Institute. Obama will also "finally wage the regulatory war on fossil fuels the Left demands" and "unleash the Environmental Protection Agency to impose crushing new burdens on U.S. business."

    2. He'll outlaw gun ownership
    Obama didn't do much regarding gun control in his first term — he's "been so respectful of Second Amendment rights that the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence gave him an 'F,'" notes the Chicago Tribune's Chapman — but that's "just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term," the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference in February

    3. And he'll ban pizza
    TIME recently asked former Republican presidential candidate and ex-Godfather's Pizza boss Herman Cain if it's "worse to imagine a world without pizza or one in which Obama gets a second term." A second Obama term would be worse, Cain replied, "because with Obama in a second term, there will be no pizza.

    4. Obama will deliberately weaken the U.S.
    D'Souza's basic premise is that Obama is channeling the "anti-colonial" dreams of his "philandering, inebriated African socialist" father, says the Philadelphia Inquirer's Rea. According to D'Souza's film, that translates into sitting back and letting "the nations of the Middle East, including Libya, Syria, and Iran, band into 'the United States of Islam,' threatening the security of the United States and the world

    5. He'll let Iran go nuclear
    Unless the U.S. attacks Iran in the next four years — and that's unlikely under Obama — "Iran will enrich enough uranium for multiple nuclear weapons

    6. Obama will let the U.N. take over the U.S.
    Tom Head, a judge in Lubbock, Texas, raised plenty of eyebrows in August when he told a local CNN affiliate that if given a second term, Obama will "try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations," sparking "civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war

    So a judge in Lubbock TX and Herman Cain represent "the right wing"? Rly?

    As for claims, that there is "taxmageddon" coming in January is not a claim. It is reality.

    1. "ABC News reports on a "hot mic" moment between President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev:

    At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him “space.”

    The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.

    The exchange:

    President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

    President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

    President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

    President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

    2. It’s helpful to have a vivid illustration of this, but is there anyone who thinks Obama, should he get a second term, wouldn’t run wild with policies and positions that the majority of the electorate oppose? Otherwise, he’d roll them out now, of course....

    Elections are taken as mandates by elected officials and the media (even if the message is less clear than the winner would have us believe).

    In sum, the election is not simply a referendum on President Obama’s actions to date; it’s essentially a blank check for the president’s second term. Romney should be asking wary independent and moderates: Is there a scintilla of a chance that Obama would be less liberal in a second term?"

    3. "Of the 15 previous presidents who have been elected and then re-elected, not one had a more successful second term than his first, according to presidential historian Robert Dallek. For seven, the second term was catastrophic: Felled by assassination or illness, or mired in corruption and controversy."

    Obama ran operation Fast And Furious through the DOJ to undermine the 2nd Amendment.

    You Lefties talk about a second term when Obama really should be impeached.

    If you cared about the Constitution you'd want him out too. But you don't.

    The 3,000 page mess called the health care law that democrats didn't even read before they authorized it amounts to taxes and regulations that will really hurt small businesses.

    A CEO, a liberal and a conservative enter a room. There are ten cookies on the table. The CEO is responsible for making them while the liberal wants to create a new government agency that regulates the sale and taxation of the cookies. The conservative and the CEO walk away while the cookies get stale and the liberal tells the media how wonderful the new cookie agency will be.

    They didn't read it because it was just a giant gift to those who did: The Insurance Industry.
