Obama could face primary challenge from own party

July 28, 2011 by  

Obama may be challenged in the primaries.Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is calling for a Democrat to challenge President Barack Obama in a primary election, according to Fox News. Sanders told radio talk show host Thom Hartmann that the President has been able to move too far to the right because no Democrat has stood up to him, reports the news source.

Sanders’ claims indicate a growing concern of Democrats. Some liberals are concerned that Obama is too willing to appease Republicans in debt negotiations, even at the expense of cutting programs such as Social Security, according to the media outlet.

According The Hill, Sanders stated his belief that if unchallenged, the President will continue to drift toward right-wing positions. “I think it would do this country a good deal of service if people started thinking about candidates out there to begin contrasting what is a progressive agenda as opposed to what Obama is doing,” Sanders told Hartmann, according to the news source.

Although Sanders has not volunteered himself as a challenger, he said he would encourage someone else to run, according to Fox News. As of yet, no Democrats have stepped up to take on the incumbent President, although former Senator Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) has been considered by some as a possible candidate, reports The Hill. However, Feingold’s spokesmen have said that he supports the re-election of Obama.

    Barry moving to the RIGHT? Really, Bernie? Because Social Security is in danger of being cut? Well if it is, it’s because of your guy’s LEFT WING ANTICS, the Obamacare debacle being the prime example– it is an economic BLACK HOLE into which EVERYTHING will be sucked into, destroying what’s left of the economy that your overly centralized federal government taps into for things like Social Security, pal–

    • Ellen

      Here we have another out-of-touch Democrat. People voted for Obama because they thought he was a centrist and believed his babble about cutting the deficit in half, etc. Now, they’ve seen a progressive ultra liberal and don’t like his policies. If this guy thinks a Dem that runs as a progressive will win in today’s economic times, he should be voted out with the rest of the brain-dead Dems who believe that progressivism has helped the US. Welfare is bankrupting us and has created an entire society of welfare cycle repeaters. Welfare is the Dems’ biggest ‘achievement.’

        Ellen,
        “progressive ultra liberal”? It’s funny how anyone who wins the Democratic nomination instantly becomes the “most Liberal member of the …” and you folks buy in without question. A true “progressive ultra liberal” would not have caved in to the Republicans on health care. If Obama were a “progressive ultra liberal” we would have single payer national health care instead of the hodgepodge they came up with. A real “progressive ultra liberal” would never even consider a bill that would raise revenue by eliminating deductions for home interest and employer provided health insurance, let alone slash Social Security and Medicare benefits, but there he is. War in Iraq? Still going! Troop surge in Afghanistan? You bet!

        Obama is certainly not a TEA Party Republican, but neither is he an extreme left winger. Consider his administration’s firing of Shirley Sherrod. It wasn’t what she did or said, it was fear over what FOX News would say if he didn’t. He could have repealed the Patriot Act. He could have let the Bush tax cuts run out as they were scheduled. There are a dozen things a “progressive ultra liberal” could have and would have done, but Obama is too much of a centrist. He seems to be trying to follow in Clinton’s foot steps, but he isn’t as good at politics as Clinton and the GOP knows it.

    • paintbrushbright

      Stepper —It is strange that this piece had no author’s signature and also failed to mention that Barry Sanders is a self confessed socialist. So who could he possibility have in mine to run against Obama? Karl Marx is dead!

  • TIME

    Can any of you say Hillery?

    • Harold Olsen

      Can you spell “Hillary?”

    • JeffH

      Sanger & Alinsky would have been beeming with pride for Hillary.

  • Doc Sarvis

    Further confirmation of what I’ve been saying; President Obama is and always has been in the Center on the political spectrum.

    • Raggs

      Doc.. you are smoking that funny stuff kinnda early today huh…

    • Bob

      Doc: All your statement says is that you are deluded (as usual). Maobama is a marxist and no amount of lying by lieberal liars is going to change that. What this does prove is that many maocrats have moved so far to the left that even a useful idiots like maobama and yourself appear to be moderates. I hope that America is beginning to realize that the democrat party is the very essence of evil and must be sent to the dustbin of history before it brings America to a new Dark Age.

      • Bill

        Who do you like best Rush or Glenn. As far as news i can tell you watch Rupert Murdoughs stations. Such an honest old man.

      • Kinetic1

        Bob,
        Look at the policies of the Ronald Reagan, patron saint of the Republican party and you’ll see that it is the right that has moved further to the extreme. Many of Obama’s policies, just like those of President Clinton were proposed and supported by Republicans just a few years ago. Now, even some Reagan’s policies are to far left for TEA Party Republicans.

        • paintbrushbright

          Every time I read the post replies it’s the same old game of every one looking back comparing the good and bad deeds of past presidents to Obama’s policies of today. It’s a waste of words and a way of justification either for or against Obama. They have nothing to do with what he is doing now. Why can’t we stay on tract of looking and discussing our agreement or disagreement with his actions? Let’s not look to excuses but to fact of what he is doing that has put this country in limbo and what he is doing that will hurt or help correct our dilemma.

        • Raggs

          WOW.. you are really stupid for an “intelligent” life form.

    I have never seen this potus do anything towards the right. Where is this man getting his info?

    • Bill

      In this debt debate he leans to the right all the time.

    • Rusticus

      Your letter says a great deal about your political ignorance. Put down you Ann Coulter books for a minute and get a book on comparative governments. Here’s a simple primer. Government running business is left wing. Business running the government is right wing. If you can’t see that our government is run by business interests, there is no reason to discuss anything with you.

      Failing to prosecute Bush criminals-Right wing. Escalating war in Afghanistan- Right wing. Renewing Bush tax cuts- Right wing. Sucking up to the Republicans – Right wing. Bailing out the banks – right wing. Selling out health care to the insurance companies – right wing. The list goes on and on. The only “left wing” thing he has done is taking over GM. That is a drop in the bucket compared to his right wing activities.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Rusticus,
        Spent money at a faster pace than any other president. Left wing! get involved in libya, costing one hundred billion already. LEFT WING! strengthening the patriot bill. Nobama, or left wing!! Threatening to close the internet. left wing! Want me to go on?? I can!!

  • don

    please, don’t even think of hillary. her and obumma go hand in hand on most of everything. they are both anti gun which would eventually disarm the public. do we want the un to take control of our guns?they’d sell off us all for control of everything. get ready to lose our rights with them. as far as another candidate it would be another handpicked one who the rich, and bankers would choose. what happened to the peoples candidate? while you are at it look up the obama deception. most everyone wold be disgusted with obuma if they saw it. it would also show why we don’t need hillary. the obama deception videos can be foun on the website alex jones info wars shop. i thinnk the obumma deception cna also be seen online.

  • Warrior

    News flash bernie! 1.) why anyone believes you’re an “independent” is beyond comprehension. 2.) the only other “progressive” who could fill obammy’s shoes already served two terms. But hey, don’t let that fact stop the “progressives” from inserting the slickster again.

    • tomm

      How right you are, Warrior! People, so easily forget where so many of the current problems started.

  • E Pluribus Unum

    I think the Democrats would like to primary John McCain against Obama, but don’t want to lose his Republican vote for the Democrats agenda.

    One Question has been bothering me lately. Once all the Democrats have been fired, will the Republican party survive without someone with whom to cut deals?

  • Bill

    I agree with Tomm, everybody seems to forget where the debt came from. If everybodies is so concerned about the debt i would think that the first thing that we should do is reverse everything that got us in this mess to start. After we get to full employment , which is why we supposedly kept the Bush Tax Cuts which haven’t added to many jobs in the last ten years. Then we could look at the deficit if there is one.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      bill,
      we also passed the stimulous bill on Nobummers promise that unemployment would not dip farther than 8%!!! Let’s see, it’s what now 10%+???
      His jobs czar, who is supposed to be building jobs in the US is from GE and as an executive of the company helped move over 1000 jobs to CHINA!!!
      Last but dam sure not least, son, tell me ANY time in the history of this nation that we had 100% employment!

  • http://N/a Armour

    Since when is a move toward communism a move to the right?

    • Bill

      What’s a move towards Communism. Reversing everything his doing what every other President has done. If you want to talk about Communism a majority of the products we buy are from a Communist country. I forgot that’s free trade even though it screws your own American Country. Where is our borrowed money coming from, i forgot it’s a Communist country.Our country alone is turning a Communist Country into a Super Power. So i would think the blame should be on our Corporations and our Government which moved 58,000 factories out of the country in the last 10yrs. I’m sorry i forgot about the Bush Tax Cuts which added jobs out of the country instead of into it. I guess the American people are to greedy, if they would only work for 40 or 50cents an hour with no benifits there would be all kinds of jobs.They just don’t want to work.

      • Raggs

        Bologna… billy bob clinton started NAFTA remember? he also started the affordable housing agreement in which started the decline of our economy.. So why don’t you go read a book or something…

        • Bill

          If the Banks and Financial institutions wouldn’t have been so corrupt we wouldn’t have had a problem. To much deregulation can’t trust the leaders of all these businesses. We the tax payer bailed them out and they got bonuses.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            bill
            that is just plain BS!!! Bush tried to warn a dem congress and Bawney Fwanks about the housing bill and Bawney Fwanks told him not to worry the fair housing was doing just FINE!! Yeah, just fine on a fast track down a very slippery track!!! Let’s not forget there were a lot of people out there that KNOWINGLY bought more house than they could afford!!! they figured they would worry about it when that balloon payment came due or they sold it for a profit!! Stupidity on their part!!!

        • Kinetic1

          Raggs,
          Reading is a great idea. You can learn a lot. Try reading this for instance: NAFTA was signed by President George H.W. Bush, Mexican President Salinas, and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in 1992. Clinton simply signed the bill once it was ratified by Congress. I’m not saying that it takes Clinton off the hook, but NAFTA was part of a Republican program to cut costs for corporations, not some doe eyed Liberal attempt to improve the economies of third world nations.
          As for the housing bubble, let’s not be stingy. Reagan increased the gap between the wealthy and the poor, contributing to massive problems in low income housing. HUD, during both the Reagan and Bush 1 years was busy taking bribes and payoffs from wealthy developers who then took advantage of the poor. Clinton stepped in and made a misguided attempt to improve both the economy and the lives of the lower class with new housing policies. Unfortunately he failed to deal with HUD or set up proper regulation of the new lower standard home loan industry. Next up, George W. Bush, who’s concept of a “Ownership Society” lead him to make the growing low income loan situation even worse. Subsidies to help cover down payments and closing costs and relaxed oversight of the banking industry turned the home finance world into a upside down pyramid. So while I agree that Clinton made some mistakes in handling the housing market, he was hardly alone.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            kinetic,
            et’s not forget that at the time of Reagans departure, most banks still REQUIRED about 20% down on a house! Then came the dem plan of zero down and they STILL couldn’t afford the house!!! don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining!!

  • Bill

    If Obama gives into cuts to any of the big 3 the Dems need to find a replacement for him in 2012, because that’s going to be his downfall.
    I also think the destruction of the Democratic Party will happen if cuts in programs are approved with no revenue added. It seems to me the Democratic Party is moving away from the working peoples party to the wealthy Republican Party. No ones really listening to what the people are asking for except maybe the Koch brothers.

    • Brad

      Bill,

      Answer this one question, why is it this administration in 2 1/2 year’s has spent more than any other administration in history? Now they want to spend more; by 2025 if the debt is left un-checked/being paid off the interest alone will engulf 50% of GDP and the rest of the money the US treasury takes in will go to social programs. After the social programs have been paid there will be no more money left to pay all the various departments, then what, the US starts selling off parts of the country to pay our obligations within the US. Is this what you want for our future, I think we all need to step back and tell congress to quit selling us down the road, start paying the debt off and live within our means. That being said, congress needs to balance our budgit with no deficit spending and we as Americans should start taking care of our own before taking care of the world.

  • s c

    For anyone in America to look at Sanders as an Independent is a grave indictment of America’s inferior, imploding education system. If that yahoo is an Independent, then I’m Bawney Fwank’s best friend and Nancy Pelosi must be made a saint immediately.
    Sanders is playing games with the English language. This just another distraction, designed to be absorbed by people who hate to think for themselves. If the good people of Vermont were serious about being freedom-loving Americans, they’d ship Sanders to Cuba, and tell him he’d be posing in front of a firing squad if he found his way back.

  • Raggs

    I have heard it all now… oblama inching to the right? hell he is so far left the earths rotation is even backwards where he came from.

    • Bill

      If you would watch something other than Rupert Murdoughs station Fox News you might learn to think for yourself. Billy Bob started NAFTA at the urging of the Republican Party. Maybe someone else needs to read a book.

  • Lloyd

    Here’s what I just don’t get. We as a country are faced with unprecedented debt currently over 14 trillion and even with the cuts currently being proposed by both parties, we will be at 25 trillion in debt within 10 years, this based on the base budget and the routine increases in it each year. The cuts being proposed barely slow down this growth in debt. On top of that we are looking at well over 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities for the social programs. Congress has diverted the money citizens paid for social security and medicare to the general fund and spent it and these social systems are operating like a big ponzi scheme. If we don’t voluntarily cut the spending and get things under control then we will be bankrupt before long following in the footsteps of Greece and the rest of Europe. How do you propose we address this problem? We can’t just keep raising the debt ceiling and borrow 40+ cents on every dollar the government spends. I’m listening!

    • Bill

      Like i said if you get rid of the Bush Tax Cuts , also get out of 2 wars which are a mistake, get rid of the Tax Breaks for Corporations to move out of the country ( who ever heard of a country paying its Corporation to move out of its country ). Then we want to complain unemployments to high. Also if we get to full employment our debt wouldn’t be so bad. All the Presidents from Reagan on have increased the debt limit. Also 58,000 factories in the last ten years is a lot of tax money to lose thanks to our patriotic corporations that don’t like communism.

      • Raggs

        Bill… wake up… even if the Bush tax cuts were reversed that would NOT even come close to a drop in the bucket in lieu of this ultra progressive spending spree of oblamas.

        You have no plan dude. only excuses.

        • Bill

          I think you need to find out what kind of spending spree Obama’s been on compared to your idol Ronnie Boy and that Texas Ranger George.

          • Bill

            Before you talk you should read the reply to Lloyd, It’s right above you.

          • Bill

            I don’t think those are excuses Raggs. Unless your wealthy if we follow the Republicans agenda you’ll end up in rags.

  • Bill

    If you look at all the States with newly elected Republicans. I don’t think they are listening to the people. It looks more like they are being Dictators.

        NOT!!!!!!

    • Bob

      You must be from another planet or you are just grossly ignorant. Maobama is talking about ignoring the constitution and forcing a budget deal on America just like any other tinpot dictator and you have the nerve to call Republicans who obey the rule of law dictators? And what is wrong with being rich? Is it because your are a typical loser whose only way to riches is winning the lottery?

      • Bill

        I’m sorry your so misinformed, to much Rush and Glenn and way to much Fox News. I’m not against being wealthy ,i just think they should be paying their fair share. It’s kind of sad when the wealthy and our Corporations that are left in this great American Country pay a less % than the average person does. I read an article in Forbes magazine that said our tax rates on busineses is one of the highest in the world, but after they take their writeoffs were one of the lowest in the world. If that’s being against the wealthy,i guess i am.

        • Raggs

          What was it that oblama said…. I will not make the 50% of the population that does not pay taxes pay an income tax until the other 50% that pay taxes pay their fair share….

      • ValDM

        Bill,
        I’m surprised at your lack of critical thinking skills. Let’s see, the D’s were in charge of Congress the last 2 yrs of GWB & we had another 2 yrs of D’s where spending skyrocketed during those very long 4 yrs. In fact, the last budget that was approved was by out-going GWB in 2007 for fiscal year 2008 when YOUR very left-leaning prez took over. Since the time of the O’boy’s inauguration, WE HAVEN’T HAD A BUDGET!!!! He & his D contingent has been spending us into penury. As an aside to all this, the R’s have chosen to bend over & spread for every half-baked idea coming down the pike as long as it means spending more. Don’t you get it yet? THER IS NO SOLUTION………….We’re ALL screwed.

        • Bill

          Obama hasn’t spent nowhere near what the Texas Ranger or the good old boy spent in their terms. As for the Dems being in control for 2 yrs. under Bush, i guess you have to blame the President then.

          • http://?? Joe H.

    The people run the economy. If people buy it means more orders which in turn usually demands more people. So if we keep wanting to take away from the consumer we’ll never get out of this situation. Now really isn’t the time to talk debt. After you get full employment we should be talking the debt.

    It really pains me to hear the way the Oval Office is demeaned but I understand. The office of the POTUS is usually held by a person of earned respect and can lead by example, in this case we do not have a man in the office but a marketed fraud and a man with apparently “NO Credentials”, he is reffered to as the Mystery Man or more recently that eff’n uncredentialed N’word in the White House, there is no respect for this self aggrandizing clown who’s inept thoughtless ways gain this country a black eye in just about every way possible.

    This must never happen again and steps will be taken to make it so, the vetting process will make the candidate produce those vital credentials that were ignored by the failing MSM. This man set no precedent but those who were responsible for upholding the law were nothing more than grossly negligent.

          • Rusticus

            Your number’s wrong, Raggs. The leaches on Wall Street and the Locusts in corporate executive suites don’t make up anywhere near 50%. It is 5% or less.

  • Lloyd

    If we taxed the wealth 100% of their income it wouldn’t even make a dent in the debt this country has racked up. It is true that the debt ceiling has been raised many time by many presidents and it started before Regan.. However, it is now totally out of control and we are in serious danger of becoming a bankrupt nation if we don’t curb spending. So we can call each other idiots and morons or we can figure out a real solution which common sense and common practice for the many indicate that spending has to be seriously reduced. So let’s stop all this finger pointing and bs. We are here can’t change that, we need to do something about it NOW!

    • Rusticus

      It is not out of control at all. The so-called “debt crisis” is simply a ploy by the right to destroy social security and medicare. Period.

      If there really were a “debt crisis” tax increases on the wealthy would be part of the discussion. They aren’t = it isn’t.

      Your so right if we taxed the wealth of the wealthy we wouldn’t balance the budget. We would also have to get out of 2 wars we shouldn’t be in. Take away tax breaks for corporations tax breaks to move out of the country.Also get good paying jobs for all the people that worked in the 58,000 factories that moved out of the country (a lot of tax money went with them). Then we could talk the Debt fairly.
      i’ve never heard of a country that has paid to have their Corporations to leave. Have you? After that complain where are the jobs.

        Wonderful post, plain common sense, wish reasonable ideas drove our Congress.

  • Harold Olsen

    A Democrat challenging Obama in 2012 will never happen, though it should. The Democrats are stuck with Obama as their candidate in 2012 whether they want him or not. If anyone but Obama is their candidate, they lose the black vote, without which, they can not win. Any white Democrat who challenges Obama will be called a racist. Any black Democrat who challenges Obama will be called an Uncle Tom. No Obama, no black vote. Black Democrats will throw a childish temper tantrum and stay home and not vote.

    • Raggs

      I thought that racism was limited to republicans and the tea party?

      Have you ever seen a democummie called a racist?

  • chuckb

    harold o, you forgot one thing, if barry loses in 2012 the blacks will probably burn cities down anyway. after all, if he loses with all the fraudulent voting, they really will be upset.

    He says that Oblama has moved too far to the RIGHT? Somehow I don’t think that Sanders is an Independent. But I do agree that the Dems could put some people up against Oblama that could give him a serious challenge. I’m interested to see if they will.

    • Raggs

      ERR-AH… NOT.

      Plan… Throw in a democrapit loser in order to re-seat oblama.

      In english… toss in a dead fish to stink things up for the GOP.

      • Rusticus

        The GOP’s stench is so great that it is beyond anyone’s ability to add or subtract.

  • http://deleted Claire

    I rather like Bernie Sanders. I have listened to him a few times.

    • Bert Cundle

      It aint what they say… It’s what the do, & will Do!

    • Rusticus

      He’s great Claire but the corporations that control this country would never let him get elected and the corporate controlled media won’t give him any air time.

  • chuckb

    bill and hillary are waiting in the wings. the next election will be palin against hillary.

    • Thinking About

      Every Dems dream to run against Palin. Talk about a socialist, Palin sums up the whole story. She so gracefully accepted money to build a bridge to no where and when it was halted she placed the funds in Alaska treasury and gave the residences of Alaska a tax cut. Redistrubtion of wealth. How about taking per diem while living in her own home. Guess she thought it was her entitlement

    • http://gunner689 gunner689

      Hillary is nothing more than a pale Obama in a pants suit. same globalist/socialist ideals.

  • chuckb

    thinking about, as usual you are not thinking, you read too much dnc propaganda. read the facts.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    So Senator Bernie Sanders thinks BHO “….has been able to move too far to the right….”?? LOL!! LOL!! How has BHO changed?? Unlike Bill Clinton in 1995, BHO has not moved an inch to the center. He’s just as leftwing and radical as he’s been for the past 4 years!! Voters of Vermont should read this. If he thinks Obama is too much to the right, then Sanders definitely should be defeated in his next election cycle!!
