Speaking at a fundraising reception at the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel, Obama told supporters “the American people understand we’re not going to make progress by going backwards. We need to go forward. They understand we don’t need to re-fight this battle over healthcare. It’s the right thing to do.”
He told the group, “I am not a perfect man and I will never be a perfect president,” but stressed the importance of Americans working together and acknowledged his need of the crowd’s support.
“This is going to be a close election. The economy is still tough and folks are still frustrated,” Obama said. He explained the messages from the Romney campaign will be, “the economy is bad and it’s Obama’s fault,” but insisted that when he travels the country his faith is restored each day.
Laughing, he commented that in 2008 he didn’t have all the gray hair he does today but promised “I believe in you. I hope you still believe in me.”
Oh I believe in you alright!
I believe you hate America.
I believe you are using Latinos to get a second term.
I believe you are desperate to win a second term to finish destroying America. Nothing short of total destruction will satisfy you.
I believe you are a Marxist.
I believe you are a user and abuser of America’s wealth.
I believe you are a narcissist to the nth degree.
I believe you are the worst thing that’s happened to America since its inception.
Signs of defeat are starting to surface. For him to say this means he doubts his ability to win this election. When there is self-doubt, there is always defeat. He is defeating himself. He is running out of things to throw at Romney. They have tried class division due to his net worth, they have tried attacking his family, they have tried to attack his religion, and they have tried to claim he outsourced jobs instead of creating jobs here, none of this has stuck. Romney has gained ground by attacking Obama on his handling of the economy, his poor performance in creating a business friendly environment that creates jobs, and mainly his deficit spending sprees. Obama is in a flat spin and cannot restart engines, he’s looking down and finding the ejection seat doesn’t work either.
You sir, rode into the presidency on a wave of good will and even those who were skeptical wanted the very best for you and of course the country. You’ve failed and it’s time to pass the baton to Romney who hopefully will be able to begin the daunting task of fixing the mess that you exacerbated with poor leadership and initiatives.
In 2012, we must defeat Socialism, Communism, Statism, Humanism, Internationalism, and Marxism . . . all of which support Obama. Failing to defeat the Obama machine may mean that we lose America for our children and grandchildren.
