Who Obama *really* fearsSubmitted by RonC on Thu, 05/31/2012 - 16:41
I don't wear (too many) tinfoil hats, but I started floating this theory of mine a few months back - and I've yet to hear anyone else echoing it. Nevertheless, I'm still convinced of it.
What I think is simply this: Obama isn't stupid. He knows, as we do, that he and Romney differ little on anything. He knows that *every* single attack Romney could hurl at him - including his (Obama's) record - could be hurled right back at Romney - including his (Romney's) record in Mass. That being said, I firmly believe that Obama knows he could destroy Romney in a general election.
Conversely, it is Dr. Paul -- with his pristine, consistent record; his deep, unmatched knowledge of monetary policy; his history of being proven correct time and time again; his ardent, tireless defense of the Constitution; and his commonsense philosophy and foreign policy - ideas that are resonating with an ever greater number of Americans -- who not only offers BY FAR the greatest contrast to Obama, but who would, in fact, be the greatest threat to Obama's re-election (as polls have indicated). I think Obama knows all this and I think he understands INFINITELY better than the Republicans do Dr. Paul and Dr. Paul's cross-party support base - esp. Dr. Paul's appeal amongst the youth and both "progressive" and conservative independents.
(When I can tolerate to listen to Statist Hannity, I've even heard a Democrat call in and say the same thing - that he was salivating for the RNC to pick Romney because it would mean four more years of Obama, and - right before Hannity hung up on him - as Hannity was talking over him you could hear the caller say, "It's Ron Paul I really fear...")
*** So all this leads up to my theory that all the attacks on Romney by Obama and the DNC are merely nothing more than a political "head fake" to make it look like they are actually afraid of Romney, so as to encourage the RNC to pick Romney as their nominee. ***
I believe the Democrats are going to hammer away and hammer away right up until Tampa to try to convince every Republican that we have to nominate Obama Lite... er, Romney, that somehow Obama Lite... sorry, Romney, has Obama shaking in his boots. And I honestly believe that, if the Paul delegates pull off the miracle of getting Dr. Paul the nomination, that the loudest cries and gnashing of teeth will come not from the Romney campaign or the Republican mouthpieces (FOX, talk radio), but rather the Oval Office and and the backrooms of the Democrat party.
(Or maybe Obama doesn't actually fear anyone and he's doing what his Luciferian Illuminati Bilderberg Overlords have instructed him to do, which is go after Romney, because it's LIBOs who really fear Ron Paul...)
(that last bit was a joke, people.)
