Most of these will come to past, because "Obama Ideologue 1" won't change. Convinced he's right, he'll go down fighting for fascism dictates way beyond 2016. He's much more a fascist than socialist because the former wants to control the capitalist system... he sees and realizes the advantage of capitalism...it's just too obvious. He seeks control of it...motor car companies, banking, Obamacare et al. It is much easier to keep the same economic system in place with a few tweaks...running it ! Americans love "free stuff"...they thrive on them and Obama 1 gives more and more to them !!

Afraid you are right about Obama and his pals. He is planning a "continuation of the campaign" with his union and green buddies. That means EPA enforcement of Cap and Trade which was estimated by the CBO as a 2 million job killer. Obamacare is estimated as a 800,000 job killer with its taxes and is likely worse when the regs start pouring out of these 100+ agencies and committees. It is not a pretty picture, but some people will not learn until they make life a mess for all of us.

When British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan was asked what might knock his administration off course, he famously responded, "Events, dear boy, events." There's a lot of truth to that. At any point in time, an unexpected event can throw the political world into turmoil. However, more often than not, it's not the blindside hit that gets you so much as the freight train you've seen coming for miles.

When Barack Obama came into office, he had a number of serious challenges to deal with and not only has he effectively addressed very few of them, many of them have worsened...
