MSNBC’s Chuck Todd:
‘Immigration reform’ will get
’80 to 90 votes in the Senate’
Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Jeff Poor    Original Article

After Tuesday night’s re-election victory for President Barack Obama, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd predicted that one of the president’s agenda items — one promise he never managed to fulfill in his first term — would breeze into law. ”Immigration reform,” he said, will get “80 to 90 votes in the Senate.” Since the election night results showed Republicans unable to attract Latino voters, he said, “Republicans will run, not walk, in trying to support that now.” On the Wednesday broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown,” NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker said Obama’s victory speech in Chicago pointed to

The Terrifying Line in Obama's
Speech That Everyone Missed

His Agenda: President Obama's convention speech got rough reviews, and rightly so. He offered little but tired bromides and recycled promises. But critics overlooked one promise that will guarantee an even bleaker future. There was plenty to dislike in Obama's speech. The language was flat, his delivery languid. The speech was stuffed with standard Obama chestnuts about the smallness of politics, the corrupting influence of money in politics, and how cynicism is our worst enemy. Instead of stirring rhetoric filled with hope and promise, Obama pledged that under his leadership, "our path is harder" and "our road is longer."

MOSCOW - Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent a congratulatory note to President Obama after his re-election Tuesday, his spokesman said. The Kremlin says it will make the text public after the Americans have received it. Putin is also expected to call Obama personally "in the near future." "In general, the Kremlin took the news about Barack Obama's victory in the elections very positively," spokesman Dmitri Peskov said, according to the Interfax news agency. "We have the hope that positive initiatives in bilateral relations and in Russian-U.S. interaction on the international arena in the interests of international

Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham debate
how Romney lost the election
Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor    Original Article
Posted By: sparky86- 11/7/2012 12:49:08 PM     Post Reply
The shock of last night’s electoral outcome in the presidential race is setting in for some conservatives. But just how it was lost seems to be up for the debate. On Laura Ingraham’s Wednesday radio show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter and Ingraham debated who is to blame. Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” was less willing to fault the candidate Mitt Romney, while Ingraham put the loss mostly on the shoulders of those running the Romney campaign. COULTER: I think Romney ran just on his own force of will, a magnificent campaign.

Obama May Levy Carbon Tax to
Cut U.S. Deficit, HSBC Says

Barack Obama may consider introducing a tax on carbon emissions to help cut the U.S. budget deficit after winning a second term as president, according to HSBC Holdings Plc. A tax starting at $20 a metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent and rising at about 6 percent a year could raise $154 billion by 2021, Nick Robins, an analyst at the bank in London, said today in an e-mailed research note, citing Congressional Research Service estimates. “Applied to the Congressional Budget Office’s 2012 baseline, this would halve the fiscal deficit by 2022,” Robins said.

It was the morning of the Republican hangover. After four years in which the jobless rate never dipped below 7.8 percent, with millions of Americans still unemployed or underemployed and median household income falling, Republicans still failed to unseat President Obama and, for the second election in a row, fell short in their efforts to win control of a Senate that seemed within reach. The Wednesday-morning quarterbacking began quickly. Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, captured the feelings of many Republicans when he said in a statement

Florida Rep. Allen West on Wednesday demanded a recount as his bid for reelection remained too close to call, with the tea party Republican trailing his Democratic opponent by fewer than 3,000 votes. Patrick Murphy has 160,328 votes, or 50.4 percent, to West’s 157,782 votes, or 49.6 percent, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press, which has yet to call the race.West, who warned before the election of “nefarious actions” by Democrats, suggested a county election supervisor was trying to rig the election.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Due to the approaching nor'easter, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is temporarily suspending operations Tuesday at 6 p.m. at its three disaster recovery centers on Staten Island. FEMA spokesman John Knowles said the agency will evaluate on Wednesday when to re-open the centers, where residents can file claims for housing assistance, repairs and temporary shelter. But the centers will definitely be closed Wednesday.

Rep.

Not every vote I cast will be popular," Flake said. "But I can guarantee you that every vote I cast, every decision I make, will be made knowing what's at stake and knowing that this state has to have a brighter future,

Exit polls: No major
Jewish erosion for Obama

President Obama's support among Jewish voters has remained relatively steady from 2008, exit polls show. National exit polls released Tuesday show Obama capturing 70 percent of the Jewish vote, versus 30 percent for Mitt Romney. In 2008, exit polls showed him beating John McCain 78 percent to 21 percent. The Solomon Project estimated that his actual 2008 vote share among Jewish Americans was actually closer to 74 percent — taking into account the small sample size. "Despite unprecedented Republican efforts and millions of dollars spent to win over the Jewish vote, Republicans performed within the margin of

A FEMA disaster recovery center in a Hurricane Sandy-ravaged corner of Staten Island that was supposed to provide shelter, food and assistance to hurricane victims Wednesday morning went MIA, posting a sign saying that they were closed due to the approaching nor'easter. A printed paper sign taped to the front door of on the center at 6581 Hylan Blvd. at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday read “FEMA Center Closed Due to Weather.” The front doors of the disaster recovery center, which is housed inside the Mount Lorretto Catholic Youth Organization, were unlocked, but there was no staff anywhere in sight for at least a half an hour.

Barack Obama has been re-elected president. Like most on the right, I misread America.(Snip)Our economy is skidding, we have racked up massive debt to an unsustainable level, and we are no longer a culturally confident or united nation. We are a scattering of enclaves, barely on speaking terms, swaggering and vibrant Texas suspiciously eying bankrupt but arrogant California, rural and traditional Oklahoma having nothing in common with corrupt and secular Illinois, and so forth. Our entitlement spending threatens to engulf red state and blue state alike. We now owe more per capita than ridiculed Greece,

Washington – Known as the self-proclaimed “Toughest Sheriff in America,” Joe Arpaio has been re-elected over former Phoenix police Sgt. Paul Penzone in Maricopa County. "It's my sixth time...I'm going for number seven," the Maricopa County Sheriff told FOX 5 in Phoenix. In the same interview Tuesday night with FOX 5, Arpaio offered an olive branch to the Latino community. "I'd like to get closer to the Latino community, if that could ever happen to try to explain what we do and get better relationships," Arpaio said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who famously said that his main job was to ensure that Obama was a one-term president, offered “sincere congratulations” to Obama, yet suggested a stiffening resolve to challenge the president. “The American people did two things: they gave President Obama a second chance to fix the problems that even he admits he failed to solve during his first four years in office, and they preserved Republican control of the House of Representatives,” he said in a statement. “The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the President’s first term,

In the aftermath of Barack Obama's reelection, the lecturing and advice from the liberal media began on Wednesday's Good Morning America. ABC analyst Matt Dowd mocked the GOP as a "Mad Men party in a Modern Family America." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] (The Mad Men reference is to the AMC series set in the 1960s. Modern Family is a gay-friendly sitcom on ABC.) According to Dowd, "And it doesn't work anymore. And it just doesn't fit anymore." Host George Stephanopoulos insisted the results indicate that "this is a changing America, which makes it a changing electorate."

There are no ways to get around the facts. For Republicans and conservatives and independents who wanted a new direction for our country, the victory of President Obama is sad — and for many of us, unexpected. (Snip) First, the Obama campaign’s decision to frighten women worked. Republicans did not wage a campaign on social issues, but the Obama team ran commercials in all the major swing states emphasizing how Romney would try to outlaw contraception and prohibit their right to choose abortion if they felt there was no alternative, and that half the population

First Lady Michelle Obama is encouraging local governments across America to become “Let’s Move!” cities and towns because local leaders are “uniquely positioned to champion healthy communities.” First launched in 2010 but expanded this July, the initiative allows elected officials to sign up their locality as a “Let’s Move! City,” a “Let’s Move! Town” or a “Let's Move! County” and thus commit to various healthy eating goals. The goals for the initiative include “prominently displaying” MyPlate posters in all “municipally or county-owned or operated venues where food is served,”

  



The Meaning of Yesterday's Defeat

Yesterday was a comprehensive disaster. Here in Minnesota, to add a local perspective, not only did the state go for Obama–no surprise there–but the Democrats recaptured both houses of the legislature, and voters defeated two ballot initiatives, one on gay marriage and one on voter ID. Similar losses were sustained across the nation, although there were a few bright spots here and there. So yesterday’s defeat was not about a flawed presidential candidate or presidential campaign.

Let’s not kid ourselves, last night was a bad night. (Snip) The fact that Barack Obama was reelected and how he was reelected, can only be seen as dispiriting news for conservatives. That Mitt Romney got fewer votes than John McCain is dismaying on any number of levels. We were told, by strategists and by what seemed like common sense, that the McCain coalition was a floor for Romney to build up from. The possibility that it was in fact a ceiling is pretty awful to contemplate.

One of the more lopsided predictions of this year’s presidential election in Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s favor came from Fox News Channel’s Dick Morris, who on repeated occasions declared Romney would win in a landslide. As it turned out, Morris was wrong and Obama won handily with a sizeable lead in the Electoral College. On Wednesday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Morris said his landslide prediction had become his “mudslide” and explained where he went wrong. “I think that the reason the prediction I made was wrong, is that I was criticizing the polling because I said

President Obama signaled a hard left agenda for his second term in the very first words of his victory speech in Chicago last night. It required only 31 words (23 if you omit 'thank-you's) for me to become doubly appalled with the speech, delivered to a cheering throng at one of McCormick Place's smaller rooms. Speaking in Obama Code, he indicated what he intends for the next 4 years.
