Cameron Happy to See Obama Re-Elected

The Cameroons in Downing Street will be genuinely happy to see that an incumbent head of government can hold office despite a faltering economy:

Guido takes consolation that he won his £100 bet with the ever optimistic Dan Hodges, who bet that Obama would win by a landslide margin of 5%.

Obama’s margin is tight, tighter than it was against McCain. Republicans also advanced in Congress. America remains divided…

            What economic mess? Do you mean the unprecedented national debt racked up by Gordon Brown, which the bankers forced him to borrow to create sham growth? Or the gold they forced him to sell at the bottom of the market? They must have private photos of him stashed somewhere.

            scapegoat, I am not defending last Labour government. I agree that the last Labour government made lots of mistakes. Some were done to protect the last Labour government from the rich as there wasn’t any choice. But it also should the majority of voters that they will be better off under it than the conservatives.

            I am telling you as things are.

            If conservatives want to win they need to get votes what they are doing is not going to get them votes. Cutting tax to the very rich and asking others to pay more is not going to lose votes for the conservative party.

            Anonymous (no wonder you stay that way), try asking yourself how the Conservatives got a larger number of votes than Labour in 2005 but where as Labour could enjoy a comfortable majority the Tories couldn’t get one. That doesn’t strike me as the Tories being unpopular so much as an electoral system rigged against them. Do you know which PM got the largest share of the popular vote ever? John Major, and we all remember what kind of tiny majority he had to work with.

        People are becoming cleaver. They are bothered about under who they will have a better life. As people become clever economic right-wing will lose. This why Obama won and Cameron wasn’t able to get a majority even in a deep recession.

        Just look at what this conservative lead government did, it cut taxes for people earning over 150,000 and increase VAT and NI for middle class and poor. It also cut benefits for poor and middle classes get.

        This why Labour will end up winning the next election. If conservatives want to win they have to tax the rich and cut taxes middle classes pay. Helping the poor to improve their life chances will help.

            Now that might work for the person receiving the money, but the person being punished for creating wealth is going to react rationally and try to prevent being punished, and then their isn’t the OPM, and there aren’t any jobs either.

            Hide your wealth, plan to protect it, because the majority have elected to replace reciprocatory wealth creation with extortion. You have perhaps a decade before it totally stops.

    Let’s remind ourselves of all the things that Republicans claimed Obama would do in his first term: Ban all guns, turn the white house into a mosque (yes, some of them actually said he would do that), protect Bin Laden and al Qaeda, protect Iran and nuke Is*rael, and abolish the free market. Now let’s look at what actually happened. Guns have not been banned, the white house is still the white house, Bin Laden is dead, al Qaeda operatives continue to be killed and bombed daily, sanctions are crippling Iran, arms sales and annual aid to Is*ael have continued, and the free market has not been abolished.

    Of course, NOW the tack is to say this was all a soft lead-in to his real agenda for the second term, where he’ll ban all guns, turn the white house into a mosque, protect al Qaeda, protect Iran and nuke Is*rael, and abolish the free market.

    Here’s a deal. If, in four years, any of those things have happened, I’ll buy you a can of Coke.

    The fiscal cliff approaches. Obama thinks he has a mandate to raise taxes, increase spending and debt and set loose the money-printing presses. But the Reps still hold the House of Representatives.

    But if he is allowed to raise taxes for the rich it will have the same result as it did when Labour increased the higher income tax rate by 10% in the UK. Higher unemployment and lack of growth. International companies like Apple, Starbucks, Google, etc will evade taxes in the US even more via less punitive, more intelligently-led countries who will continue to reap the benefits.

    The Republicans left a pile of crap behind 4 years ago, and even if people don’t like Obama’s “let’s spend our way out of it” crap, they have not forgiven the Bush administration for their malfeasance.
    But the Democrats have achieved what western European socialist parties did 60 years ago, he put enough people on the payroll so that you had people who work for a living and those who vote for a living.
    Not to mention that Romney wasn’t much more than a stuffed suit and “that’s all we got” candidate and was facing a $1b attack ad campaign with massive Obama bias in the media.

    4 years ago, the Democrats had a super majority, but now they don’t control Congress or the House of Reps. And in the mid-terms they will get a thrashing like they did 2 years ago and Obama will just be another lame duck President.

    But then the “saintly” Mrs Clinton will be running. depending on what state the US is on, but I doubt the GOP will have a candidate to take her on.
