Sylvia Browne makes predictions about President Obama: Second term?

Here's an article about her current tour:

Quote:
Psychic Sylvia Browne comes to OC ‎

By Peter Larsen
June 25, 2010

Psychic Sylvia Browne's new book is her 57th and while that might seem enough to cover just about everything she could possibly have to say, don't be fooled, the well-known psychic says, because there's never been one quite like this.

...
Q: When will we get a Big One-style earthquake?

A: Thirty years from now. I say to them, 'When I move, you move. I'm not moving anywhere. If I thought anything (was going to happen) I'd put it out on my blog or my Twitter. I'd say it everywhere. I don't think we're going to have the Big One.
...
Q: Is Obama going to make one term? Or two?

A: I'm worried about him. If he goes into a second term, I hate to be a predictor of bad (news), but I'm very concerned that if he's elected a second time that there could be an assassination.

...
Q: How is being psychic not counter to God and the Bible?

A: I've read all 26 versions of the Bible. Where they're getting that from is Deuteronomy: Do not consort with sorcerers. But they forget that in Kings they went to the witch of Endor (who consulted with Samuel's ghost). And that in Deuteronomy they say Joseph has always been an interpreter of dreams. It's not the Bible's fault, it's people's fault. They pick out one little piece and they'll beat you over the head with it.

A classic non-committal Browne answer. She's "worried" and says there "could" be something that happens. Let's all recall how she did during President Obama's 2008 election. In 2006, she predicted a "black president" for the 2012 term and explicitly said there won't be one in the "next" (2008) election.

She's read all 26 versions of the Bible...so she knows.

Actually I think she's learned. She didn't even answer the question.

IF he goes into a second term. There COULD be an assasination.

Weasel words. Nothing definite there to catch her on.

I'm kinda glad. Since most of us here have noticed that whenever she says something, the opposite happens, I'm glad she didn't say he'd have a second term. I like him.

Yep. She's not saying anything that could be incorrect.

However, that's no longer alleged psychic powers.

That's just making guesses and predictions based on the info available, just the same as all the rest of us do every day.

If only she admitted that's what she's been doing every day...

Browne's contradictory predictions

I saw some Browne supporters commenting about this thread, citing as a proof Browne predicted an Obama second term. I wanted to post these articles:

From October 2011:

Here are some of her predictions:

1) President Obama will not get re-elected. While not a fan, she favored Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.
...
From early 2012:

...
President Obama will NOT be re-elected as President of the United States.
...
and the common Browne contradiction in September 2012 after the polls show Obama ahead:

Spiritual Healer Sylvia Browne Makes Predictions For The Future

Spiritual healer, psychic, and author Sylvia Browne visited New Orleans for shows at Harrah's Casino.

She does not feel the world will end in 2012, and she believes President Barack Obama will be re-elected in November.
More on Browne's 2012 election predictions and contradictions at this thread.

Argh...I certainly don't want four more years of what we just had...but every time Sylvia makes a prediction it's wrong. I think she wants Obama for whatever reason and says he won't be re-elected so that he WILL be, and then she'll do another flip-flop if her latest was against him!

Personally, I almost don't care anymore. I'll go vote, of course, but this year I'm doing it early just to end my misery as quickly as possible.

I also recall she said that a cure for breast cancer would be found, and how many years did she say the pope would die before he actually did? *sigh*
