The Liberal Brain: On The Ballot In 2012

!

The economic gods have really been piling on to President Obama lately. (Are they racist?) Unemployment has edged back up to 9.1%, while housing prices are falling. Energy and food prices have climbed sharply. And everyone knows the US ran up over three trillion dollars of debt to achieve this happy state of affairs, that the spending can not go on at these levels, and that cutting it will produce even more short term economic pain.

Which brings up the quesiton of Mr. Obama’s electoral chances in 2012, and his running mate. He faces a very simple challenge. Either the president manages to turn things around by next spring, or he gets fired next fall. In the coming weeks, we can explore why the chances of a turnaround do not look good.

As for the running mate, that question goes beyond Joe Biden or whomever the lucky person might be that is asked to join the Titanic Ticket. Because, if we frame this election properly, the real running mate is the liberal brain, the true power behind the throne in the way that Dick Cheney was imagined to be in the Bush Administration, but never was.

The liberal brain is the animating power of this administration, with its evergreen faith in the power of the government to manage our affairs (as long as liberals are in charge, cramming their nostrums down our throats). We need to get that brain out there for all the world to see, and the damage it has done under its front man, Barack Obama. The left will try to distract us with all manner of diversions, and their insult machine will be revved up to the max.

Pay them no heed. Let’s recharge our batteries this summer, hone our skills, and prepare for a stormy, but exhilirating, election season.

  1. the most effective way to make this strategy work, $, is to make sure people know how they, singly and individually, have been effected…and to convince them it has been in a more negative than positive way.

    To move beyond the big picture, and get down to the nitty gritty of how their lives are worse off than they were 4 years ago…and to make sure they know how and where to go to DO something about it.

    At the Polls.

  2. I heard where Austin Goolsby, one of O’s spokesanimals, said yesterday “You can’t pay too much attention to the 9.1 unemployment rate. There are other indicators….blah, blah, blah…”. Un fracking believable! I also read an AP story the other day (gotta love those AP stories!) saying that the reason car sales were slumping is there is a shortage in inventory of those wildly popular electric carts and things that run on carrot juice. I cannot begin to imagine what we are going to see in print and hear over the airwavesover the next yer or so, especially next summer. They are already reduced to just babbling.

  3. Title should be a bumper sticker, Street. BY the way, there is a third option, besides improving things (that is not his intent, I am certain of it) or get fired. It is time to at least begin considering the unthinkable.

    • VB I wacth your entries carefully and have learned your timing is not to be questioned, it is always impeccable. If you say it is time to start considering the unthinkable, it is time. Without question Obama has been willfully & wantonly creating his own long, long bill of particulars for the house rules committee to use (against him), they would not need not do much legal research. Those with ears to hear what you mean, let them hear.

      • I, too, have hears to hear. Last time this was brought up on UP, I started to think. when would be the opportunte time to bring charges (assuming Obama gets re-elected), before or after the election. Now, it looks increasingly like he will have a tough time staying in power. So yes, the time is opportune if we ever want to do it. Personally, I think bringing up on charges makes his re-elect an even more remote possibility. Others will differ I feel sure, however.

    • I have asked in various forums over the past two years if anyone knows who has access to Obama’s Blackberry, and whether Presdential communications on it are preserved for history, as are other communications normally done, like….phone logs, e-mails, …..dicta-belts…et cetera. No one seems to know.

  4. Has anyone heard of “Persona Management Software”? I was reading an article at The Hill about Axelrod saying that the Republicans have no jobs plans and are just yabbering about it. Excuse me, the House sent an Energy Bill to the Senate that would be a major job creator. In the comments section of that article, I read a very comment-

    FYI: WARNING!!

    Last June the DNC purchased “Persona Management Software” from the military to be used as a propaganda tool.

    The software will allow 10 personas per user replete with background, history, supporting details and cyber presences that are technically, culturally, and geographically consistent . In other words the software makes it easy for these DNC paid staffers to create and maintain a massive number of fake online social network persona.

    DNC Trolls posting on the Hill, and a variety of other websites, are in all probability using this software. One troll can post under a wide variety of names with the intent to fake an online grassroots social media campaign.

    It will appear as though an army of fake posters are in favor of a particular political view point, for instance Obamacare, while spying on others and spewing paid for propaganda.

    Troll names possibly using the software are: Gone Fishing, Lloyd C., Independent1, Gvanover, Honest Abe, etc.

    With the software they can change their persona easily without cross contamination.

    Individual applications will enable an operator to exercise a number of different online persons from the same workstation and without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries.BY Anonymous on 06/06/2011 at 09:48

    Apparently the story about this spying, and propaganda spewing software came out back in February. I have been trying to search for more info to validate this comment, but haven’t been able to find any credible websites reporting on it. Does anyone know anything more about this. It is something I definitely could believe, and I’ve seen some of those names (Gone Fishing and Honest Abe) posting to articles at the Hill, spewing propaganda, and making it appear that a majority of people love Obamas policies, like Obamacare.

    I also wonder if Ron Paul’s campaign doesn’t have similar software. They seem to show up in groups, and about the same time, insulting anyone who doesn’t support Paul. They all say pretty much the same thing. Now they are really after Cain, because of his year as a Fed. Reserve Bank Chair. If I had a dime for every time they say the Republicans are just as bad as the Dems, I’d be wealthy, even though Paul is running as an R.

    As you have said streetwise, they will be increasing their insults and hatred for anything Republican/conservative. Unfortunately it isn’t only the Liberals spewing the spin.

  5. ‘stack, I’ve been working in the retail industry while going to school, and I can tell that people DO know the cause-and-effect impact of what’s going on. I’m a trend watcher, to say the least. Even in the context of my job, there have very specific trends. Right after Obama was elected, spending on credit cards was high. About a year ago, purchases went to either debit or cash. Now, purchases are dropping off significantly. People are just pulling back and taking care to evaluate how they spend disposable income more cautiously.

    The proof is there that people know. No one discusses it honestly. They avoid talking about it.

  6. streetwise, I’ve found myself stunned at little young people understand about how our economy works, or how the economy impacts society as a whole, even in the context of morals and ethics. And it isn’t the easiest thing to put into words. I’ve tried. (I do better with charts!) Without that understanding, a lot of them just don’t see how the liberal brain is actually dangerous.

    • The liberal brain is a great way to put the syndrome. Teaching people how morality affects the big picture takes time but is supremely important. That has to be done 24/7. But for the 2012 election cycle we must do both: put things into personal economic terms, And put things into moral, big picture terms.

  7. Streetwise thank you. This is the turf where we fight -0- and get rid of him. My son just in visiting from southern AL, where he is in military training, tells of an interesting and sad anecdotal observation: in the cotton fields in southern Alabama *right now* can be seen hundreds of African Americans, more than anyone can remember in many years -or since they can remember-. day laboring, picking cotton in the hot sun. Like a scene right out of 1866. We are all suffering economically in some form, but the bitter truth is no community is suffering worse right now under Obama’s economy than the African American community. The foodstamps, unemployment and anemic job creation stats prove it. How much longer can people stand Obama’s economy?

    • The liberal brain likes government by the Bobos and for the Bobos- the “Bohemian Bourgeois” whose rise was so brilliantly chronicled by David Brooks in his 2001 classic: “Bobos in Paradise”

      Alas, he, too, fell for their spell in the end. Must be something in the NYT water fountain.
