Ferrara implies there is a perfect storm brewing for Obama and points to three specifics as examples. First, the Sestak scandal, then the Oil disaster in the Gulf, followed by our exploding debt and deficits. He sounds rather certain of his prediction too:
Months ago, I predicted in this column that President Obama would so discredit himself in office that he wouldn't even be on the ballot in 2012, let alone have a prayer of being reelected. Like President Johnson in 1968, who had won a much bigger victory four years previously than Obama did in 2008, President Obama will be so politically defunct by 2012 that he won't even try to run for reelection.As bold as Ferrara's claim is, he actually leaves several things out that could serve to reinforce his argument further. The rise of state governments with Arizona's Jan Brewer and New Jersey's Chris Christie the best examples is also playing a role.
I am now ready to predict that President Obama will not even make it that far. I predict that he will resign in discredited disgrace before the fall of 2012. Like my previous prediction, that is based not just on where we are now, but where we are going under his misleadership.
The Sestak scandal is likely to explode as a near exact scandal with the president's fingerprints all over it in Colorado begins to come to the surface as well. We also have the Rod Blagojevich trial starting this week and at its essence is something almost identical to what's at the heart of the Sestak and Romanoff scandals. - trading political positions for things of value. The Black Panthers case stemming from an incident at a Philadelphia polling station on election day in 2008 is still playing out too.
Perhaps all of the reasons that Ferrara left out of his argument that Obama may resign aided in his confidence.
