With 2008 Enthusiasm Gone, Obama Will Lose

 by Idaho Conservative Blogger (ICB)
I’m a gut instinct kinda person. My gut told me George W. Bush would win his elections for President. My gut told me to be worried when John McCain won the Republican Nomination for President. My gut tells me Mitt Romney will be the next President of the United States.

Now don’t get me wrong. Losing to Obama in 2008 was not entirely McCain’s fault. There was strangeness in the air. Hope and Change was resonating with many Americans. Many who don’t normally vote or first time voters saw something in Obama that was appealing. The problem: It was all style over substance. It was being able to feel like a part of history. The ability to say, “I voted America’s first black president.” We showed the world despite our history of slavery and racism, we have finally moved past that nasty time. The election of Barack Obama proves it. The Problem: As noble as the idea is, he was completely unqualified. The color of a man’s skin should not determine a vote. I don’t care if the candidate is male, female, white, brown, black, yellow, or green. I want the most qualified person for the job to win.

Obama promised to bring all of American’s together and end partisan bickering. The Problem: His rhetoric has divided us more than ever while the President Plays class warfare and passed Healthcare reform without one Republican vote. The President said many times to Republicans in his first year. I won you guys lost.

Mitt Romney has much going for him. He has performed well in two debates against Obama. His qualifications and experience speak for itself. Bigger than both of those things is the Obama 2008 enthusiasm gap is all but gone. Poll after poll shows Republicans have the edge in enthusiasm. Many Obama supports that were all excited and hopeful last time around have abandoned him and those who haven’t are defensive and scared.

The 2008 Obama voters who support Romney today are angry with Obama. They will not necessarily vote FOR Romney but rather AGAINST Obama because he let them down or even stronger, they think he lied to them.

Hispanics primarily are feeling lied to by Obama. Recently on Univision he was drilled with questions on fast and furious and his lack of immigration reform.

"I think up to 100 Mexicans might have died (in Operation Fast and Furious) and also American agent Brian Terry,There's a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation, but shouldn't the attorney general, Eric Holder, ... have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him?"

"Why don't we have ... an independent investigation that is not done by the Justice Department?"

"You promised that (reform), and a promise is a promise, and with all due respect, you didn't keep that promise."

Many others feel let down on the economy and high unemployment. He promised to fix both and failed. He promised to cut the national debt and he raised it. These things have not gone unnoticed by many former Obama voters.

Former Obama supporters are simply disappointed that he presented himself as a different kind of politician and has shown he is the worst kind of Politician. Chicago thuggery and all talk with no results.

These moderate democrats and independents who voted for Obama in 2008 but wont in 2012 have enthusiasm, enthusiasm to make up for their mistake in 2008. They will vote in droves for Mitt Romney and help secure his place as the next President of the United States.
