Fighting for Freedom Against Reelected Obama

Recommended Posts

One of Obama's main goals for Term 2, preventing Atlas3 from being made, is already achieved, according to Aglialaro.

Where did you hear this? Are you saying he's announced there'll be no part 3?

He implied it in "To Win or not to win", Nov. 2, interview with David Kelley.

Given John Aglialoro's tenacity over the years, I expect he will reevaluate his "Not likely,"

The interview referred to above is posted at:

http://johnaglialoro.blogspot.com/2012/11/to-win-or-not-to-win.html

Aglialoro: . . . . I have to believe that, at the crucial moment, the American people will make the right choice of individual self-worth over the detestable commandment to live for others.

Kelley: And if they don't? If Obama is re-elected and we continue down the path of collectivism, what about Atlas Shrugged Part 3? Will there be any point?

Aglialoro: Not likely. What is the point, once he is re-elected? It will mean that America has decided to continue down that slippery slope, ultimately down to the dustbin of history where the Greek and Roman empires dwell.

That sounds like a semi-feeble excuse for not making three.

Why follow two duds with a third. It costs money. And throwing good money after bad money is not too bright.

. . .

Peter,

The pipeline will be approved. I've never had any doubt about that. The delay of decision was for the election coalition. The election is over; wisdom will prevail in this issue and soon. Less certainly, I expect real compromise now by the administration with the Republicans on issues of taxation, debt, and structural reform of entitlement programs. It's about enduring legacy now, not posturing for ideologues. (And hallelujah, in my book, part of the legacy of the next four years will be that vacancies on the Supreme Court will not be filled with anti-Roe justices.)

It will get worse, though Stephen Boydstun’s predictions on a different thread are a bit rosier. He thinks it will all be about Obama’s Legacy now, and … the President will move more to the center and ignore his socialist base.

. . .

Barack Obama is, of course, concerned about his legacy. He can't become President for Life. For a politician so narcissistic the base—in fact, the entire Democratic Party—exists only to put him in power or keep him in power. And persons outside the base are complete nonentities, so far as he is concerned. He'll go, not with convictions exactly, but with what he learned earlier in life and found would ingratiate him with authority figures and bring him advancement. And all of that is of the social-democratic variety.

Anyone who imagines that Barack Obama will become more "moderate" during his second term has no understanding of the man at all.

We needn't wait two or three years. There are plenty of early checkpoints for anyone who wishes to assess this judgment.

For instance, he could lift his ban on the Keystone XL pipeline tomorrow, if he wished.

Does anyone here think he will?

I got this wrong, and Robert Campbell it right. Obama Rejects It
