One comment by Obama that shed some light on his thinking for a second term, and which did get some news coverage, was a private conversation with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in March 2012 that was inadvertently caught by a live microphone. In that conversation Obama asked Medvedev to tell Vladimir Putin to wait for Obama's second term, when Obama would "have more flexibility" on various issues.
This comment, combined with the fact that President Obama is saying little, if anything, during the present campaign about his plans for a second term led me to look for some media analysis of the potential direction(s) of a second Obama term. That led me to this book.
The authors rely primarily on the published statements of various think tanks, "progressive" lobbyists and the Congressional Progressive Causus to predict the possible direction of a second Obama term.
Here's basically what they're predicting, chapter by chapter:
1./ reductions in funding and staffing for the US military and the increased use of the US military in peacekeeping. They also predict future military missions based on the R2P, or Responsibility to Protect, doctrine. (*
(* Update - June 2013 - Plans have been announced to reduce Marine Corps strength by 20,000. Update January 2014 - the number of generals and admirals in the US military is/has being severely reduced. Update - February 2014 - More large staffing and budget cuts to the US Army have been announced.*)
2./ "Green" spending. More subsidies to companies like Solyndra.Read more ›

The book covers several policy areas but mostly focuses on economic issues, the military, and immigration. Among the more shocking revelations are Barack Obama's plans to cut funding to almost all military programs -- except those designed to combat climate change. The book also predicts a wholesale revival of New Deal "alphabet soup" agencies such as the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps. Far from the more limited ambitions of his first team, Barack Obama is planning to unleash a truly transformative agenda in his final four years, when, in his own words, he has more flexibility.
Elliott and Klein also do an admirable job of describing where these policies actually come from. They dissect the network of thought leaders, think tanks, and Administration officials and progressive lawmakers that form Obama's Shadow Cabinet. They also describe how so called "expert opinion" is used manipulate the public and create a phony consensus in favor of left wing policies. What Elliott and Klein have done is not just show Obama's specific policies, but reveal exactly how they are to be implemented.
This is the equivalent of seeing your opponent's playbook before the game even begins. Conservatives, independents, and even progressives who are interested in the substance of the 2012 election owe it to themselves to check out Fool Me Twice.
In 178 pages of text excluding an Introduction, an extensive Notes section, Glossary and Index, the authors lay out out much of Obama's unspoken agenda in nine chapters. Those chapters are titled, "U.S. Armed Forces to Fight `Injustice,' Poverty, and `Global Warming,' What Solyndra? New `Green' Stimulus, Federal "Green Bank, Open Borders, Amnesty for Illegals, A Jobs Plan for America, It's Back! FDR's Works Progress administration and Other Obama Job Nightmares, Blueprint for a New Economy, National Infrastructure Bank, `Equal Pay for Equal Works' and Other Acts of `Fairness,' Government Health Care for All, " and "Elections: Stealing the Future."
All the material included in these individual chapters is scary, but in the final chapter "Elections: Stealing the Future" is more or less terrifying. He doesn't include this quote in the book, but it could be summed up with the 1848 observation by Karl Marx about elections. Marx said: "It is enough that the people know there is an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide..."
That last chapter is basically about having all voting done on line and counted by foreign companies with no paper ballets made to double check the reported results. The winners may be decided by external or internal hackers.
"This book reveals the blueprint for a second term that Obama and his progressive backers don't want you to know."
"Here we lay out in great detail the progressive agenda for a second Obama term. All the main areas of domestic policy are covered--jobs, wages, health care, immigration, electoral `reform,' as well as the `green scheme,' or what passes in progressive circles for a national energy policy. Each of these plans seeks to permanently remake America into a government-dominated socialist state."
"The continued success of Barack Hussein Obama depends on concealing his true nature, his radical policies, and his second term goals. We are about to blow the lid off all that." So says co-authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott best selling authors of "The Manchurian President."
"Imagine the fundamental transformation of the U.S. Armed Forces into a social network organization designed to combat `global warming,' fight global poverty, remedy `injustice,' bolster the United Nations, and increase `peacekeeping' forces worldwide."
As the author's point out "progressive socialists normally operate--to borrow a Fabian socialist term--by stealth." Turning the spotlight of truth on Obama's hidden agenda will make more voters aware of how they are being lied to by the President and his administration operating on the theory that "their ends justify any means."
The progressives and socialists have dumbed down the American public to a point that they don't even understand the terms of capitalism, socialism, progressive and freedom. Laws and regulations are passed and put into practice with names and titles that are 180 degrees different than what they are intended to do. "Affordable Care" means "Unaffordable Care" or inferior care and rationing.
This is an important expose of just how Obama plans to end the America we have all known and loved since its founding in 1776. And he has many of the voters believing his lie that we need to change because America has not worked for the past 250 years even though America is the most successful system in the history of the world. It has been the envy of the world and Obama wants to turn it into a third world socialist state.
