As it becomes apparent — is it apparent? — that Obama is likely to lose — going to lose? — the election...

... what should we expect to see?

1. Desperate attacks, material that otherwise would not have been dumped into the public discourse.

2. Liberals distancing themselves, saying things like "He hasn't presented us with a comprehensive plan for his second term," to preserve their ability to say, after the election, that the American people did not choose conservatism and they don't want conservatism; they merely selected what seemed to be a plan over the absence of a plan; they wanted change and we have a new plan for change.

If the election is going the way it looks right now for RR, it will be interesting to listen to the liberal talking heads.

I remember vividly listening to D. Shore the "eminent" voice on NPR decrying the imminent Repub victory in 1994.

That's when you appreciate watching MSNBC -- when their heads are being handed to them.

In the immediate aftermath -- that this proves that "America is virtually ungovernable, fatally flawed in structure (in that it lets that horrible right wing govern at all), etc etc." Just as is said whenever the left's agenda runs into constitutional government.

Then, when President Romney begins to (ahem), govern.... and succeed within that very constitution, expect all that talk to vanish for about ten years... when a new generation of nitwits uses that kollej edoocashun of theirs to listen to the same damn siren song all over again, to elect some new leftist pinhead to do the same crap Carterbama did, which will not work, and America will promptly become "ungovernable" again.

And so on.....

Andrea mitchell is already fluffing her cushions for the hard landing. Breitbart showed her triangulating, an example of your point number two. "What is the wisdom, though, of the President going on Jon Stewart, he's speaking to his base, and then getting as serious a question as you will get from Jon Stewart ... about Benghazi and adopting the answer, the word 'optimal' from Jon Stewarts question, you have to give him that. But it still SHOWS A LACK OF COMMAND of the moment." she said Obama shows a lack of command?! Their internal polls must be amazing.

Roger J. said...

The republic will go on--it's strong enough to tolerate even 8 years of an Obama administration (not my preferred outcome, but possible). In addition to the economy, for which Mr Obama has no plans that are apparent to me, we will faced with an increasingly hostile Middle East and a resurgent Russia, both of whom have taken the measure of this feckless and incompetent president.

But I do believe the republic will survive him. Albeit with considerable cost.

Tim said...

#2, but only after it is exceedingly clear he will lose.

Until then, #1 to forestall his earned defeat.

And, afterwards, if we're lucky and smart, Obama will be firmly and permenently ensconced in the history books as the least experienced man ever nominated and then elected president of the United States.

But that hinges on voters learning from their mistakes in'08.

Yeah, I know.

A dubious proposition, stupid people learning from their mistakes. I have some hope they can.

U mad, bro?

By the way, pigfucker, any thoughts on this? The Florida Department of State’s Division of Elections is investigating a number of fraudulent letters sent to voters in the state questioning their citizenship and voter eligibility, in a possible attempt to keep them home on Election Day.

“Our campaign is concerned with this situation, and we are monitoring it closely,” Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams emailed TheDC. “If anybody believes that they have received one of these letters, we urge them to contact their local election officials and the Florida Department of State.”

According to the Florida Department of State, voter fraud constitutes a third-degree felony and is punishable by up to $5,000 fine and five years in prison.

“We’ve received multiple reports of a fraudulent letter that impersonates supervisors of elections and indicates that eligible voters might be ineligible,” Chris Cate, spokesman for the Division of Elections, explained to the Tampa Bay Times, which reported the letters have gone mostly — if not entirely — to Republicans in the state.

“We’re working with the state’s supervisors of elections, as well law enforcement, to identify the source of the letters and put a stop to them,” Cate said.

Yes, that's exactly right.

All the problems the media has ignored/papered over the last four years will become instantly, relentlessly critical; Romney will be pressed to act immediately WHILE being held to a higher standard than the failed Obama.

Despite being graded on a curve, Romney may likely prove more competent than Obama ever could.

I hope he has the chance.

bagoh20 said...

Of course, racism will charged as Tingles has already started.

After the election is when it's gonna get ugly. All the political energy of the left including the 90%+ of the MSM will focused on stopping Romney from doing anything substantive to make things better. It will dwarf the Tea Party effect. Some reforms will be made around the edges, but Romney is too nice a guy to hold tough in the face of the names he will be called and the evils he will be accused of. If it were me, I'd announce up front that I don't want a second term, and then I clean out the junk from this hoarder's house of a government and walk into the sunset - even if by impeachment if necessary. That would be courage. That would be heroic.

chrisnavin.com said...

Well, the election's still up in the air, but if Obama loses I expect to see:

3. Civility

4. A quiet dignified acceptance of defeat

5. Many an activist suddenly deactivating, and embracing the ideas of personal responsibility and limited government without State largesse, corruption and voter intimidation

5. The folks at NPR allowing horrified look of incredulity and disgust to sweep across their faces without their voices changing tone, then a few days of hollowness inside with knowing pats on the back at the water cooler.

Then a few weeks of violin music during the interludes and once a week meet ups at Nina Tottenberg's house to discuss strategy.

Attorney backs unsealing of Romney testimony in pal’s ’87 divorce
By Laurel J. Sweet
BostonHerald

In what has been billed as an “October surprise,” celebrity feminist attorney Gloria Allred arrived this morning at a Norfolk court to back the unsealing of testimony by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the 1987 divorce proceedings of one of his closest friends.

“We believe the public has a right to know what Mitt Romney’s testimony was,” Allred told reporters outside Norfolk Probate & Family Court in Canton. Allred arrived with her arm around Maureen Stemberg Sullivan, the ex-wife of Staples co-founder Thomas G. Stemberg.

Sullivan, 61, of Charlestown, and Stemberg, 63, of Chestnut Hill, were involved in a notoriously nasty divorce with disputes over finances that stretched on for a decade after it was finalized. The court papers have been impounded since 1989.

Romney’s Bain Capital helped Stemberg start Staples in 1986.

Stemberg is represented in court today by attorney Brian Leary, who asked Judge Jennifer Ulwick to close the courtroom to media and the public.

“I woke up this morning to find all sorts of stories on blogs,” Leary told Ulwick. “That sort of damaging and salacious detail is just the thing we’re trying to guard against.”

Stemberg is now a managing general partner of Highland Capital Partners in Lexington. His spokesman, George Regan, said Stemberg is prohibited from commenting on the case “because of a longstanding gag order related to this case.”

The Romney campaign did not immediately comment. The former Massachusetts governor is represented this morning by attorney Robert Jones, who did not object to an open courtroom.

Darrell said...

Voters decided to make Republicans clean up the mess they created. Yes, that's the ticket! Obama can run again and win in 2016 or 2020. America's vision will be clear in 2020--get it? The campaign writes itself!

Kelly said...

Going on my experience when Obama won in 08, I curled into a ball for several days, drank heavily, ate huge tubs of chocolate chip cookie dough. After my mourning period was over, I dusted myself off and hoped for the best. Turns out I was overly optimistic.

garage mahal said...

U mad, bro?

No, not at all, based on available data, Obama is likely to be reelected. I am concerned about Republicans cheating though.

JohnJ said...

"... what should we expect to see?"

How about a return to sober, responsible, adult leadership for one.

…and, with a Mormon in the White House, an end to the embrace of the mind numbing, superficial aspects of American culture.

Matthew Sablan said...

"No, not at all, based on available data, Obama is likely to be reelected."

-- At this point, available data says it could go either way. A real nail-biter.

Hagar said...

Obama apparently did not have a "plan" for his first four years in office; just his showing up was supposed to be enough for the seas to stop rising and the planet to begin to heal.

What makes you think there is a plan for his second term?

bwebster said...

I wrote a post earlier this week about the coming liberal meltdown. Should be fun to watch.

bagoh20 said...

What I fear is the malaise and feeling of hopelessness that will overcome us if Obama gets four more years. To wake up facing the certainty that the next four years will be like the last, but now with a huge insurmountable deficit, higher taxes, faster rising healthcare costs and dwindling numbers of doctors and long lines waiting to see them, to face the dawn knowing the long fever you thought was braking just got worse.

All of us will become victims of the stagnation resulting from tax payers, and job creators going back into their holes to weather four more years of winter.

It will be hard for Romney to make things worse than that, even if he is jumping behind the wheel of a speeding car headed for a cliff. There may still be enough room left to stop in time, if we hire someone who knows the brake from the gas.

Christopher in MA said...

Chris Matthews' nightly tingly orgasms are hardly indicative of final election results.

Then we're even. I know Democrats will cheat. I'm concerned about Republicans manning up and stopping them.

Robert Cook said...

If Obama loses, as seems possible, it will because he campaigned as a progressive, but governed as a resolute centrist, (an oxymoron, I know). Voters expected Obama to make efforts to remedy the ills of the nation, and he has spent his four years continuing business as usual--managing government to serve the prerogatives of Wall Street and the 1% and not attending to the needs of the people; expanding the continuous and ubiquitous electronic surveillance of all Americans; sweeping the crimes of the previous administration under the carpet; and continuing and expanding on those crimes.

The Presidency is Obama's to lose...and he may lose it. Yet, even if he salvages his job after such a close call, he will take exactly the wrong lessons from his decline in public support, and will probably apply himself even more assiduously to his program of appeasement of the military/financial complex.

KenK said...

If only they were that high-minded professor. No, if O loses it will be non-stop conspiracy theories about hacked voting machines, missing ballot boxes, and racism, racism, racism.

Big Mike said...

3. Barack wasn't a "true" liberal, and didn't really govern according to proper liberal principles (Robert Cook, to name names, has been pushing this one for a while).

4. The Republicans bought the election.

5. Voter suppression (as Drill SGT already noted upthread). Note that this meme will deliberately ignore pretty blatant efforts to disenfranchise deployed military personnel.

6. Romney is really left of center, and forced to talk conservative to keep his base. So the election wasn't really a repudiation of liberalism.

7. Barack ran a poor campaign.

@chrisnavin, your second #5. Maybe.

Oh, and @garage? Barack has lost. Now it's just a question of whether it's a 100 electoral vote landslide, or merely a 50 electoral vote loss.

Paul Fraker said...

Eric Holder will say that we're a nation of racists.

JohnJ said...

"No, not at all, based on available data, Obama is likely to be reelected."

That's the correct conclusion, at the moment.

The trend is toward Romney, but that trend must continue a bit before he overtakes the President, especially in the Electoral College.

Ohio is a major concern.

Jake Diamond said...

they merely selected what seemed to be a plan over the absence of a plan; they wanted change and we have a new plan for change.

WTF? Romney has "secret" plans--details to be disclosed only after the election. No sane person can honestly say that they chose Romney because they like his plan.

Cheating is a democrat specialty. No doubt you are concerned that dead people, felons and illegal aliens will have their votes challenged.

I would hope that when Obama and his minions move out of the White House that Romney and Ryan and their staffs would find their computer keyboards intact - with all the R keys still in place.

On second thought, I'd probably get all new computers. Or have them very thoroughly checked for spyware.

Darrell said...

Meanwhile, Romney voters in NC have receipts showing a vote for Obama.

Democrats hold all the patents on vote fraud. Copyrights, too. Garage's concerns are as phony as he is--and that is saying a lot.

EDH said...

The judge hearing Allred's motion, Jennifer Rivera-Ulwick, must have been appointed recently to the bench.

She's worked in the Family Court for years, and was still court counsel during the weekly panel of the Bar Association CLE on the new Uniform Probate Code I attended in February (she had a broken ankle a made a strong effort to get there every week).

She was one of the detail people at the court when it came to estate probate maters. The Mass Bar Assoc is political, but something tells me she might be careful about the law and her early reputation as a judge.

Drago said...

Cook: "...but governed as a resolute centrist..."

Shorter Cook: failure to confiscate and/or have government control/direct all private property is the new "hard center" (see Chris Mathews for the latest and greatest lefty label).

Cookie has got to be some weird leftover 60's academic type.

bagoh20 said...

Cook, You're simply blinded. the whole world is replete with nations going bankrupt by policies that take from the producers and give to the non-productive well beyond what was sustainable. It was stupid policy that had no chance of success and nobody is succeeding with it. If you want to do that, just be honest and do your theft and servitude with a gun like a good communist.

Jake Diamond said...

Part of Obama's slipping in Ohio is that he kept telling people to run ads in Oiho and no one had the heart to correct him.

Darrell said...

No, Jake. Obama is going to lose and it won't be fraud. It will be voters firing his sorry ass.

Robert Cook said...

"3. Barack wasn't a 'true'
liberal, and didn't really govern according to proper liberal principles (Robert Cook, to name names, has been pushing this one for a while).'


He wasn't, and isn't.

For those paying attention, this was obvious before he was elected to the presidency. I didn't vote for him last time because it was apparent he would not be the president he promised he would be and this those who voted for him expected him to be.

That many of those supporters continue to delude themselves as to the nature of Obama's presidency--as do many who oppose him, thinking him a "socialist" or merely an "extreme leftist," both ludicrous propositions and not borne out one iota by his presidency--reveals that our political system and the players in it (including the voters) have become decoupled from objective reality.

From their perspective, there is some truth to this. Zero:

Went along with bank bailouts.

Brought in Goldman Sachs reps as his economic team.

Gitmo - open.

Drones expanded.

Afgan and Iraq - still there.

Patriot act - still in effect.

Several new "wars." - Libya, Somalia, etc.

Basically continued Bush's foreign policy and anti-terror programs.

Gave up on Global Warming.

Etc.

And so on.....


Actually, I suspect that it will be closer to 16 years before a young, exciting new candidate for President gets lots of attention from a fresh batch of college-age voters.

(If you don't get what I mean, think for a minute about who won the Presidency in 1960, 1976, 1992, and 2008. This series hasn't been completely bad, but also hasn't produced many stellar Presidents.)

Drago said...

EDH: "The Mass Bar Assoc is political, but something tells me she might be careful about the law and her early reputation as a judge."

LOL.

I hear you EDH, but lets face it. This deal has already been cut. The Judge will unseal the records, not that some 25 yr old divorce case will have any relation to Romney at all.

One alternative scenario: The left has already worked out a deal with the Judge NOT to unseal the records (because there isn't anything damaging to Romney in them) BUT it will be portrayed by the left as a nefarious plot to pressure the judge into not releasing harmful anti-woman info on Romney.

Then that meme will be combined with the previous meme's about Romney being "secretive" (Taxes) and anti-woman ("his advice went to the woman's disadvantage!!eleventy!!1!") and greedy ("Secret payoffs from Staples guy 1 Romney!!!1!!").

There's nothing there, but when you're axelrod and obama and you've got nothing else, what else are you gonna do?

It will be the McCain & Bush 1 affairs stories all over again.

Darrell said...

And we'll go through every Department firing out all the zealots that have been enforcing rules to further the Leftist goals-challenge all those new civil service reclassifications. The toilet will be flushed this time.

I don't think it's our political system - and certainly not the voters - who are decoupled from objective reality.

Robert Cook said...

"Cookie has got to be some weird leftover 60's academic type."

Not in the least. I was raised in a Republican family--all of whom, besides me, remain Republican--and I registered as and voted Republican in my first two Presidential elections, (Ford/Carter and Carter/Reagan).

Growing up, leaving my family and seeing the world as it is brought about my change in perspective and the dropping away of the dogmas I had been raised with.

Darrell said...

Fuck you Jake, and the disingenuousness you rode in on.

Clare King said...

#2 is already happening on the MSNBC and CNN morning shows.

I saw several devoted Palace Guards disappointingly mention the lack of a new plan in the recently published "plan" book that Obama trotted out.

And I heard them mention, "Romney means change".

Liberals will suddenly find great fault with Obama's personal qualities, which will make the election about him rather than about liberalism.

Every losing campaign eventually blames the candidate.

I don't remember that, but if I said it and it isn't just an echo from the voices in your head, I have no doubt you took it out of context.

There's no point in arguing with delusional freaks like Christopher. Better to let him shout at his monitor than to disturb his fantasy world.

And yet, somehow, you can't come up with any better response to concerns about voter fraud than "stop whining!" Someone's delusional, dear boy, but it's not me.

Geography and math classes will no longer be required

Because Romney has never needed mathematics in his life. Better check those meds, RV.

"Every losing campaign eventually blames the candidate."

Except this one, because Obamessiah is beyond criticism.

Listen, don't you realize that white liberals are fatally paralyzed with respect to race. They simply, physically cannot criticize blacks.

Anyway, regardless of who wins, this is a racially polarized election. The entire result depends on race, on getting enough whites to come out and vote their racial interests. Blacks are 99.44% pro-Obama. They are the Democrat base.

If Romney wins, they will blame it on the evil rednecks, and get down to making Tim Wise's predictions come true. Meanwhile, race-neutral neocons like Althouse will continue to deny the truth.

Rmoney has potential. Very sneaky.

Nathan Alexander, back when spell-check was becoming ubiquitous, I read an essay by someone who complained that lexicons should be flexibly featured, so that the next time he makes a typo like "mangaer" (for "manager") he doesn't get corrected with something like "manger". He noted that such a correction might be useful in Divinity School, but in business writing, not so much.

The most obvious--and apt--nickname is "Shit," as in, "Shit Romney."

Obama has been a good President in very difficult times.

Cheating is a democrat specialty

Projection. When a Republican accuses you of something you can bet the house they're already doing it. Democrats don't need to cheat, they outnumber Republicans. They just need to get people to the polls, which is what Republicans try to prevent. For instance, a criminal operation in multiple states, hired by the GOP, to throw Democratic registrations in the garbage.

I don't hate Mittens, actually. I just despise what he stands for, unless of course he just happens to have flip-flopped into one of his rare reasonable and sane policy positions. But then I can wait 5 minutes and he'll have flip-flopped again to pander to right wing idiots.

I don't hate Obama either, by the way, but I won't vote for him, and thanks to our great electoral college system, the vote I cast for president is bascially irrelevant.

Finally, as far as vote fraud is concerned, I've never seen any evidence that contradicts the conclusion that in person voter fraud is essentially nonexistent. On the other hand, I'm convinced that vote suppression attempts by the GOP in the guise of reducing in person voter fraud can have an impact on elections.

This is out of Newsweek?

“As the authors note, what makes Obama’s executive actions different from those of his predecessors is Obama, unlike Franklin Delano Roosevelt during the Great Depression or George W. Bush after 9/11, “is not expanding executive power to meet the demands of an external crisis. Instead, he is counteracting a new pattern of partisan behavior—nonstop congressional obstruction—with a new, partisan pattern of his own.”

And when Newsweek asked Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director, whether Obama would continue to govern this way if he won a second term, Pfeiffer did not hesitate in answering, “Yeah.”

Pfeiffer said Obama would “work with Congress where we can—and then be willing to act where they won’t. There are always things on that list.”

There will, of course, be expressions of angst among partisans of both stripes. These are the things the MSM needs to keep their viewership up.

At the end of the day we will elect a ppresident (and I hope it is Mr Romney), and he can get on with the busness of governing.

I genuinely hope there will be no litigation as occured in Florida--but who knows.

Pundits will pontificate, scream and rant about whatever their hobbyhorses tell them to.

At the end of the day, on January 20th we will inaugrate a new president, and he can get on with governing. There will be sturm und drang, but most people will get on with their lives.

================
I happen to agree.
If the election is close, and Obama loses, besides the inevitable court challenges, you will see black thugs egged on by OWS scum rioting or threatening to riot if the Black Man is not left in charge - as he has a moral right to - as Obama is a black man.

Simpering white liberals will beg the election be overturned because - "it is more important to avoid having innocent dead people from riots than perhaps have the technical winner of the election take office and Divide America".

I think widepread black rioting and threats of more violence against people of other races because Obama lost would have the exact opposite effect of the 60s riots that coerced massive new entitlements and affirmative action throughout the land even though AA was never voted on.

It would be a time when the rest of society determined the black thugs had gone too far and had to be checked, checked hard.

yashu said...

Self-plagiarizing what I wrote elsewhere:

Some on the right (and a few on the left) talk of the possibility of "race riots" if Obama loses. I don't buy it, never have. White Democrats at the NYT & MSNBC & so on may take to their fainting couches or go apoplectic. IMO black Americans, not so much. They'll be disappointed, but they'll take it in stride. And mostly, they'll be disappointed in Obama.

With a few exceptions, it's not black people pushing the "Romney & Romney voters = racist" line, the "they hate Obama because he's black" line. It's white leftists and liberals like Chris Matthews, the lily white MSNBC crew, celebrities like Garofalo, etc.

Many black Americans of course still have some significant psychological/ emotional investment in the idea of a black man as POTUS, and most of them will probably vote for Obama. But there's nowhere near that 2008 level of identification with Obama as an icon. IIRC Chris Rock already had a line a while back (don't remember what it was) subtly distancing himself as a black man from Obama (or Obama's "white half").

The MSM didn't make much of Artur Davis's defection, but I saw that as a very significant event. That Davis saw such a move as politically viable-- and not as politically suicidal-- says a lot.

IMO, black people use the race card, of course, because, like all human beings, they're apt to use what's convenient or advantageous to them, defensively or offensively, as a tool or weapon. And in many cases its use is sincere, in good faith. But IMO black people are also the first to know, to realize and recognize when and to what extent the race card play is bullshit. They know, because it's their own bullshit excuse. It's like women are the first to smell a bullshit "damsel in distress" card from another woman, while clueless men go all captain save-a-ho. Black people recognize a bullshit race card play, while the Chris Matthews of the world go all captain save-O.

IMO, most black people won't buy the "Obama lost because he's black." It's bullshit, and most won't fall for it. They may say it, but IMO they won't really believe it. Obama will have lost because he's Obama, dorky half-white Obama, a particular man-- not because he's black. It's white liberals (like the Matthews of the world) who'll say and believe "Obama lost because he's black." It's white liberals who need and will hold on to that delusion. IMO, generally speaking, black people won't.
