Barack Obama's enmity toward the private sector is based on how he's going to deal with being in it. Who would hire him? For one, Walmart wouldn't give him a shot seeing as how his register till would never balance at shift's end. He swears there will be a cut in the loss before the pay period is over, but there's no reason to trust that his phantom mathematics will lead to evenness.
If he's damaged the free market while president, imagine what he'll do when forced to be a member. He's eventually ending up there whether it's mercifully in a few months or excruciatingly in a few years. Aside from the incumbent's utter terribleness and an at least marginally hopeful alternative, voters should choose a candidate based on how he'd do outside of the task for which he's competing, unless personal sufficiency and competence are less important than promising lots of stupid crap.
Picturing Obama filling a job is as hard as waking up every day for the past four years and remembering he's president. The drag on every group project with which he's ever been affiliated has been faking his way every day, as those who have endured every minute passing can attest. It's little comfort that he couldn't be more horrid at his post-presidency profession than at the one he presently holds. The entire term has confirmed why he's adamantly opposed to individual credit. Or maybe voters won't remember how he tried to bluff through the first debate.
The difference between the candidates comes down to promises versus achievements. Mitt Romney was helping people while Obama was bragging about pretending to do so. Or perhaps donating vast sums of earned wealth and volunteering are outweighed by obnoxious rabble-rousing on behalf of people who need more dignity, not redistributed dollars.
Proclamations don't make communities more organized anymore than being nice to Muslims ended terror attacks, Obamacare leads to more coverage at lower costs, or the stimulus stimulates. Big promises make liberals feel so good that they don't need to actually do anything, much less succeed.
Please don't interrupt him with gloomy news from your reality. Obama will always be a success in his own sheltered world, which is the same place where he was a good president before inauguration. Remember calls for a third term around new year's 2009, and you'll understand why his daft mental vision will always be the precise opposite of the despondency he's provoked on this physical plane.
It may seem awkward to suggest that a president be diagnosed for delusions, yet it's still important to force Obama out of the fantasy world he's designed in the comfortable confines of his skull. The kindest way to do it is through voting.
As he can't fail upward again, he'll settle for trying to do so laterally. You may have noticed that his demented outlook is affecting America and the other inferior non-America countries. Equality of results is a horrifying pursuit whether personally or globally.
The avoidance of true toil was all part of the plan to diminish the value of working toward success. Pretending that refusing to join a fancy law firm was not a calculated career move requires as much gall as claiming our economy will cease faltering after another four years of unimaginable spending and venom doses administered to private sector fans.
Those sad dupes who think Obama really helped people by working as a local loudmouth are the same ones who believe his presidency has aided the underclass. Other than increasing its ranks so nobody is poor and lonely, his approach would otherwise be considered unsuccessful.
Obama's life after his tenure will be as painful as paying a mortgage during it. The only image that springs to mind is him wandering about aimlessly wearing his Nobel medal signing the occasional emblematic faded campaign poster and bragging about his presidential accomplishments such as being elected. He'll be like a diminished heavyweight champion who was awarded the belt in a scandalous decision and can't stop blathering about what fight fans know was a phantom knockout.
The feeling that you wouldn't trust Obama to fetch you a beer, much less serve as an executive any longer, is typical among those who think a recovery should have begun before a second term and were able to detach themselves from ironically plaintive cries of hope. His anticipated future track record of endorsing radical economic flattening in between bouts of embarrassing fecklessness will be no different than his time before or during his presidency. He likes running for a job instead of doing it, which further proves he's unqualified for said job.
Romney was and would be fine without winning the post. By comparison, Obama is a hustler who bluffed his way upward. Even he has to be shocked at where the sham plateaued. The election is a chance to call him on it.
He can see what it's like to be jobless, like so many of his fellow Americans under his rule. As someone who has never worked hard, Obama's only post-presidency chance for success lies in being able to find a way to continue coasting. He just needs someone to write another autobiography for him.
