Concerned. So very, very concerned.

Tell us Drew, what will happen when Obama wins? Will you cry yourself to sleep?

That was actually a very interesting insider piece.

Yea, those "faultlines" are hidden all right. So well hidden it's like they're not even there.

It's no secret that Obama's relationship with other Democrats has never been great.

Cause he's pragmatic and thus became more conservative than the actual Mitt Romney.

1. The Insiders vs. The Outsiders - Maybe. I suspect this is not so much an 'issue' as 'the standard workings of the POTUS whether GOP or Democrat.

2. Washington vs. Chicago - How is this a faultline? Differentiate those who are working on the campaign from those working for the WH.

3. Obamaland vs. Joe's World - Again, how is this a faultline? Biden can go and say things without the kind of repercussions that Obama would face in the same situation. He's the 'gaffe' man, and plays it well.

4. Obama vs. other Democrats - Local/state politics vs federal politics. No different from either side of the aisle... unless you want to compare Romney's 'economic gloom/doom' with local/state GOP incumbents singing how rosy things are.

5. Obama '08 vs. Obama '12 - Hope and Change met 'Derp'. Derp made some wins, but Hope and Change, as it always does, becomes 'Perseverance'.

6. Family vs. Politics - How his this a faultline? He's protective of his family. Who isn't?

no, then he'll be able to green a bunch of "why Obama is the worst president EVAR" links

Washington vs. Chicago. I'll take the 'skins and give 7 points.

Dog whistle language. It means he isn't hatin' on the gays enough.

The only fault in Obama's campaign is that he is not liberal enough. If he simply ruled the way San Francisco wants him too, he would win in a landslide.

1. Blackness - it's quite obvious.
2. Credit - linked to #1, again, obvious
3. Teleprompter - a known socialist tool when used by Democrats.
4. Has two black children.
5. Not rich enough, therefore cannot handle the commander-in-chief role.
6. Muslim - pretty obvious if someone really digs into who he is and traces his bloodlines.

Either the good folks at Politico have no farking clue how politics works, or they're just trying to grab Freepviews from right-wing tards who don't either.
 
2012-08-23 12:55:33 PM  
Seems to me that most of those faultlines existed in 08. Didn't seem to hurt him much then.
 
2012-08-23 12:58:05 PM  
The main problem is that he's still black.
 
2012-08-23 01:03:08 PM  
Well, Romney has 9 hidden fault lines: his 2001-2009 tax returns.

6 hidden fault lines in President Obama's campaign

www.factmonster.com
And a whole shiatload of glue.
 
2012-08-23 02:08:29 PM  
Six guesses, and not a single issue that makes me pause in supporting the President.

Here'd be my top six :

1. He's unwilling or unable to police Wall Street
2. America is still torturing people in Guantanamo
3. He failed to end warrantless wiretaps
4. Extraordinary rendition - what happened to it?
5. The TSA is still useless.
6. His annual "Fathers Day Deadbeat Dads" address. I hate that speech.

Cletus C.: That was actually a very interesting insider piece.


Too long and nothing to do with the title but somewhat interesting. I like the stuff about him flipping out on Santorum which I was not aware of.

Shvetz: Tell us Drew, what will happen when Obama wins? Will you cry yourself to sleep?


I hope he is cuffed on the floor watching Obama take his guns, then I want Obama to turn around and wink at him as he starts to piss in his wiskey.

Thanks for the summary. Having a tight control of your team is an advantage if anything in my mind.


2. Washington vs. Chicago - How is this a faultline? Differentiate those who are working on the campaign from those working for the WH.
This. You could equally criticize him if he ran it all from the WH. A better hidden fault would be linking him to the violence in Chicago.


3. Obamaland vs. Joe's World - Again, how is this a faultline? Biden can go and say things without the kind of repercussions that Obama would face in the same situation. He's the 'gaffe' man, and plays it well.

4. Obama vs. other Democrats - Local/state politics vs federal politics. No different from either side of the aisle... unless you want to compare Romney's 'economic gloom/doom' with local/state GOP incumbents singing how rosy things are.

5. Obama '08 vs. Obama '12 - Hope and Change met 'Derp'. Derp made some wins, but Hope and Change, as it always does, becomes 'Perseverance'.
This author's point here is valid IMHO but certainly not hidden


6. Family vs. Politics - How his this a faultline? He's protective of his family. Who isn't?

This. People respect this.

strongly agree, strongly agree, strongly agree, disagree (he handled this IMHO), nor sure, probably disagree

4. Did he? I must have missed something, and

6. Well, here they are :

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/06/15/presidential-pr o clamation-father-s-day-2012

I understand he's probably got issues about his own father, and about how much time he can spare for raising his children, but I resent his annual rebuke. He doesn't do the same to mothers.
