President Obama, Campaign Speech, Roanoke, Virginia, 2012-07-13
It strikes the Oracle of Ottawa wonderous ironic, looking from the outside in. That the country that gave birth to unregulated free for all capitalism is the same country were it is soon going to die, and be shoved once and for all back into the box! It was with great relief to the Oracle of Ottawa and most everyone around the whole freaking world that the second term is secured. But, as the Oracle of Ottawa mentioned in a much earlier post, at the event of the sudden demise of a certain bin Laden the second term would be a lock. And although I damn near gave birth to kittens in the early hours of the returns I was proven totally right.
|President Obama (two termer)|
Stands in front of the next President...
Well to tell the truth, the Oracle of Ottawa didn't expect that every swing state would be won along with the popular vote. Total Victory. While watching GPS on CNN this morning the Oracle of Ottawa learned that Rommney outsourced his "big data" functions! Talk about falling on your sword! Dying by your own bullshit, scum-bucket practices, is just, well, priceless!
And the right wing, defeated, just carried on the next day like nothing happened. Did you notice all the world Conservative Finance Ministers starting to talk at nearly the same time about the so called "financial cliff" ? Just like they all had the same speaking points handed to them at the same time! The Oracle of Ottawa found all that very scary and weird. The prayer circles around the world can't shut down yet. There are rosarys that have the dye worn right off of them! And they are going to be a little lighter still during this term.
As far as the "financial cliff" thing, the President has the right wing by the nuts (both hands...) and just hoping they will jump! If the Republicans play hardball, the President I am sure will just let the taxes kick in after the date. And he will be able to blame the "recession" on the "unflexible" right wing, Just like Pascals Wager, the President just can't lose this one. People all around the world knows what he has to deal with and it is scary powerful, but it must be brought to heel once and for all.
As the Oracle of Ottawa watched the images of the stubborn long lines of voters in Florida he kept thinking of the Great Doctor - Hunter S. Thompson, and wondered how he would have covered the event? Perhaps with a Coleman cooler of six packs and a tape recorder, but that is the subject of another post...or not.
Since all right wingers are visually oriented, the Oracle of Ottawa has included their near future marching orders in a video clip. Chop, chop off you go...
