Man With a Plan: Obama Lays Out Second-Term Agenda With 20-Page Booklet

Posted by on Oct 23, 2012 at 8:02 am

After months of badgering Mitt Romney about not having a plan, the guy without one finally figured out now might be the time to pretend he has a second-term agenda. So what does it involve? Why, lots and lots of teachers, job training and blaming Bush.

He’s delusional.

Obama then describes his plan: “Making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting American-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. And ending the war in Afghanistan, so we can do some nation-building here at home. That’s the right path.”

Manufacturing boom? Huh? Reducing deficits? What? Nation-building? You cannot be serious.

Obama asks viewers to compare his plan with Mitt Romney’s, then asks for their vote. Panelists on MSNBC’s Morning Joe pointed out that the ad has hints of Ronald Reagan’s famous “Morning in America” spot.

Ah yes, it’s Reaganesque according to some nitwits on a low-rated morning cable show. That’s sure to stop Romney’s momentum in its tracks. Except he’s not Reagan. Heck, he’s not even Ron Reagan, Jr.

The Obama campaign plans on printing 3.5 million copies of the plan and it will be distributed to campaign field offices, Politico reports. The 20-page “Blueprint for America’s Future” booklet will be released at a campaign event in Florida on Tuesday morning.

Any by nightfall you can use it to start up the fireplace. Really, after four years all he’s got is some 20-page plan? You’ve got to be kidding me.

    >He spends half of each page attacking Romney’s plans and defending his last four years.

    >Obama is not even Ron Reagan, Jr.? That’s just cruel.

    >Will it be issued in a handy binder? If so, what color is the binder?

    Nice that he decided to deign to tell us what he’d do with a second term… 2 weeks before the election.

    Nice to see you again Don. I miss your blog. I suppose that daffy should be having seizures by now.

    The time for Obama to have a plan was 2009.

    When you’re running for reelection, you can’t win with a plan. You have to have a record. A good one. A record that proves you are an effective leader who has solved problems, averted crises, and made life better for those who elected you.

    Obama doesn’t have that. And he knows it.

    It’s a really pretty booklet, but thanks to the pretty backgrounds, the text is almost impossible to read. I think the reason is that he doesn’t want us to read it, he just wants us to see the pretty pictures and headlines and trust us for the rest …

    There is no comparison between “Morning in America” and Obama’s ad. Morning in America shows ways in which the US was better off in 1984 than it was four years earlier and asks if you want to go back to how it was. Obama can’t show do that because even his most ardent supporters wouldn’t buy that average Americans are better off now.

    And Morning in America doesn’t begin with a whine about the challenges he faced when President Reagan came into office. I guess the Obama couldn’t resist a good whine.

    Obama quotes himself in his booklet. Quoting yourself is not a valid way to build credibility for your agenda. You build credibility by getting other respected and credentialed people to agree with you.

    Obama: “Look how awesome my plans are. Why even this guy Obama agrees with me they are awesome.”

    …boosting American-made energy;…

    That right there alone tells me the guy is full of crap.

    My plan for America:

    * Make everything wonderful for everyone
    * Build everyone a swimming pool and fill it with gravy
    * Ponies for everybody!!

    Vote for me, Me, ME!!!

    If he had a plan, he should have spent the last four years implementing it. He’s not a challenger; he’s the incumbent.

    Today, almost four years after being elected, Barack Obama has released his plan for his first term as President.

    Overheard from George Soros & Co. “We gave BHOnehead a $1 billion and all I get is a 20 page booklet?”

    A direct-mail booklet? Really? To paraphrase the last debate: “Well, Mr. President, we have fewer and fewer booklets, because the nature of media has changed. We have these things called websites, where people can visit and your message can be spread further than the real-world constraints placed on you by committing your ideas to expensive inks on decidedly non-green dead trees. So the question is why is your second term agenda stuck on 15th century technology?”
