What does Obama have planned for his second term?

About eight weeks ago, I asked, What could Obama accomplish in his second term?

Others wonder if the Democrat actually has a governing agenda for his second term.  Listening to the president’s speech on Tuesday, Sonicfrog agreed with the Democrat’s diagnosis of the problem, calling the address “nicely worded”, but found it lacking in specifics.  “OK,” the blogger asked, “So what is your solution to fix the problem of the diminishing middle class?”.

Seems Sonic’s concerns reflect those of a supermajority of Americans, given this tidbit Ed Morrissey pulled out of the recent CBSNews poll:

Even while Obama keeps fanning the flames of class warfare, no one is sure what Obama intends to do with a second term anyway.  Two-thirds don’t have a clear idea on his second-term goals (32/66) — and that includes a majority of Democrats (46/52) along with more than two-thirds of independents (29/69).

Via Instapundit.  A Republican who offers a clear an comprehensive reform plan could win a lion’s share of those voters — and then some.  Some who have a clear idea of the president’s second term goals believe the Democrat wants to further increase the size of the state.  And they want no part of that agenda.

  2. Obama himself hasn’t made it clear what he would do in his second term, hence, the confusion; all I know is he wants the United States of America to be the Euro-States of America then eventually turn into a Communist country. That’s the basic outline. ObamaCare is the first step.

    He would have nothing to lose, so he could fling whatever shit he wanted at the wall. Of course if Republicans manage to pick up the Senate and keep the House, it doesn’t matter much what he does. I suspect he’d spend a lot more time on the golf course, if that’s even possible.
