Lessons From Sandy Will Be
Ignored By Bureaucrats Again

All last week, we were inundated with warnings on how devastating hurricane Sandy would be to the Northeast corridor; (snip) For once the warnings were not overhyped and the damages are estimated to be over $50 billion. Yet I am once again struck by the fact that even though we are in the 21st Century we are as unprepared as ever for what Mother Nature routinely has in store every year. There are simply not enough visionaries in the government sector to safeguard anything except their own reelection. What we need are persons with keen foresight like Kotaku Wamura.

Two people were arrested on minor charges.The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.

Chris Christie has been under fire from Republican insiders ever since he he performed a U-turn and started praising Barack Obama's response to Hurricane Sandy last week. And now the governor of New Jersey has lashed out at anonymous aides to Mitt Romney who have criticised him for refusing to attend fundraising events for the GOP presidential candidate. The outspoken figure, a strong supporter of Romney over the past year, described his critics as 'know-nothing, disgruntled Romney supporters' who did not respect the duty he owed to the people of his state.



A Silver Lining and a Conundrum

I can see only one good outcome from yesterday’s election: the fact that Barack Obama will be the president who inherits the mess left by Barack Obama. The economy is in awful shape; it won’t get much better given Obama’s policies, and may get worse. Many billions of dollars in capital that have been sitting on the sidelines, awaiting the outcome of this year’s election, will now give up on the United States and go elsewhere. Plants will be built in Korea and Brazil that would have been built here if the election had gone differently.

A Few Things I Never

Tired. That is my overriding sensation as I write this. How to bang one's first impressions of hell out on a keyboard? Let us begin a new day, in a new world, with a first principle of sorts -- in this case, a negative principle. Here is a short list of words or turns of phrase that I never want to hear again. (1) "America is a center-right country." Center and right are entirely relative terms. The "center" between Lenin and FDR, for example, is very far to the "left" of George Washington.

Obama has achieved many goals

It is hard to gain perspective in the heat of an election battle, particularly when the power of persuasion is driven not by the clarity of an ideological vision, but by the billions in political advertising dollars. Perhaps that is why throughout this bitter and torturous presidential campaign, which began the moment President Barack Obama was elected in 2008, the battle has primarily been fought on economic grounds — one side arguing that the economy which tanked in 2008 was getting better, the other saying it was not, and both sides saying the government needs to reduce spending.

I have never been so unhappy to be right. I've long said that Barack Obama would win re-election, and two weeks ago I stated as much in print. In making this prediction, I was almost alone among traditionalist pundits, with some, such as Dick Morris (Mr. Batting Zero), actually forecasting a Mitt Romney landslide. And, no, I'm not pointing this out to numb despair with some perverse kind of gloating, like a man consumed in flames looking to suck on an ice cube. It's because of why I knew that Romney would lose: America is lost.

Never has so much time, money and energy been put into a presidential election with so meager a result. Washington today is a carbon copy of what it was when the campaign began many months ago. Democrats control the White House and Senate, Republicans the House. Republicans were hoping for a change election. They didn't get one. President Obama would have liked a mandate. He didn't get one. What the voters desired is anybody's guess. Their intentions, besides re-electing Barack Obama, were unclear.

President Obama Succeeded In

Economy: Having successfully blamed his predecessor for four years, the president celebrates at the edge of a fiscal cliff, with Taxma-geddon, ObamaCare and sequestration looming as war clouds gather in the Middle East. Exit polls released Tuesday showed about half of voters still blame President George W. Bush more than President Barack Obama for the country's economic problems, as most cited the economy as their top issue in the election. They believed the Big Lie that the mess we are in was inherited and that Obama at least kept

President Obama began his transition Wednesday from candidate back to head of government, pausing as he did to swing through campaign headquarters and thank the people who worked for months to keep him in office. Lingering in his home town of Chicago, where he celebrated his victory the previous evening, Obama received a standing ovation as he visited hundreds of campaign staffers, some of whom scrambled on top of desks to get a better view of him. But as he completed a brief victory lap, Obama also turned toward governing again

Turning a political decision

It is unlikely that the majority of Americans are familiar with the name Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I had forgotten the account of Mr. Bonhoeffer until a valued listener of our nightly radio program sent me Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, a gripping book written by Eric Metaxas. I devoured the 592 page book in three days, reading the final page only yesterday. I find it anything but coincidental that I completed this gripping account on the very day that the 2012 U.S. presidential election was decided in favor of Barack Hussein Obama.



Obama: A lame-duck president
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 11/7/2012 10:12:07 PM     Post Reply
President Obama will enter his second term a lame duck from Day One. In fact, he has been limping along for some time already. Tuesday’s result was no political mandate. In his victory speech, Mr. Obama told supporters, “You made your voice heard,” but the voice was more like a whisper. He attracted 9 million fewer votes than he did in his first campaign for “hope and change,” which is slightly more than John McCain earned in 2008. Mr. Obama is the first president since George Washington ran unopposed in 1792 to be re-elected with fewer popular votes

Republicans found themselves facing agonizing day-after questions Wednesday that they admit are nearly impossible to answer while trying to hold together their diverse electoral coalition and ensure their survival as America’s conservative party. In the wake of Mitt Romney’s narrow but decisive loss Tuesday to President Obama, top conservative strategists said the party will have to find leaders from a not very deep pool to help them adjust to increasingly unfavorable demographic trends and voter attitudes reflecting more the live-and-let-live views

Keystone pipeline pushed to forefront

With a second term now in hand, President Obama no longer can delay a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline and must either side with environmentalists within his party or greenlight a major step toward North American energy independence. The pipeline decision could be an early sign for the direction of Mr. Obama’s green agenda for the next four years, after a campaign in which he sparred with Republican opponent Mitt Romney over the pipeline and on issues such as subsidies for alternative energy companies, the future of the coal industry, and drilling policy on federal lands

How Obama victory could

Upper-income Americans may face a tax increase. Auto fuel economy standards might be raised. Stocks of construction and engineering companies could benefit. America's decision to re-elect President Barack Obama over Mitt Romney will affect all that and other elements of the U.S. economy and financial system - from the health care law to the overhaul of financial rules. At the same time, a gridlocked Congress will limit Obama's influence. Tuesday's election kept Republicans in control of the House. Democrats still control the Senate, but without a commanding majority. Here's how Obama's re-election could affect key sectors:

Driving sleet and high winds of up to 50 mph today are compounding Long Island's existing misery in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. All the way in Montauk, desperate owners of oceanfront motels pushed to the brink by Sandy frantically tried to shore up their teetering structures before today's storm. Sand bags packed the back ends of places like the Royal Atlantic where staffers tried to avoid getting knocked out completely by today's Nor-easter. In Sagaponack, Billy Joel's efforts to shore up his Gibson Lane property looked to be faltering as the ocean began to strip away

"By the way, we have to fix that," President Obama said in his acceptance speech last night. No, he wasn't referring to a specific economic, social or policy issue. He was referring to the issue of voting lines. Long, long voting lines. Across the nation yesterday, and then subsequently across Twitter and Facebook, U.S. citizens shared frustrations, photos and information about voting lines. The images of the long queues were a dime a dozen, especially when you looked at the #stayinline hashtag on Twitter. People in states like Florida and Ohio waited up to seven hours.

West Palm Beach, FL - Republican Rep. Allen West took the first steps in a legal challenge Wednesday in his closely watched re-election bid even as Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy declared a razor-thin victory. West, the south Florida Republican who has made headlines nationally for his fiery tea party rhetoric, filed motions asking a judge to require elections officials to impound ballots and voting machines. Separately, his campaign alleged ‘‘disturbing irregularities’’ at the polls and called for a recount. The conservative congressman refused to concede, but Murphy

Texas’ new U.S. senator-elect, Ted Cruz, has repeatedly taken a cautious approach when asked about how he’ll fill Kay Bailey Hutchison’s shoes when it comes to Texas’ share of federal funding. Cruz said while campaigning that he’ll work to see Texas gets a fair portion of “legitimate and important” federal spending but added, “I have yet to talk to a single voter who says the problem in Washington is that our elected officials are not bringing enough bacon home.

On the same night he apologized for making a horribly inappropriate comment about Hurricane Sandy, Chris Matthews on Wednesday had Bill Maher on Hardball to compare Karl Rove and Republicans to Nazis. After Matthews wondered about Rove's erroneous predictions, the liberal comic mocked, "It was a little Hitler's bunker, wasn't it? I wanted to rush in with a cyanide capsule there. I thought he was going to say, 'I don't want to live in a world without national socialism.'" [See video below.

President Obama was re-elected, the Democrats kept control of the Senate and the House still belongs to the Republicans. Six-billion dollars later, the partisan divide in Washington looks as stark as ever. But a peek further down the page, and often down the ballot, reveals an election night that delivered a wide array of meaningful changes to the body politic. From New Hampshire, now home to the country's first all-female congressional delegation, to Maryland and Maine, the first two states to legalize gay marriage by popular vote, the decisions rendered Tuesday might well be remembered longer than

The S&P 500 also dropped 2.4 percent to 1,394.54 while the Nasdaq Composite fell 2.5 percent to 2,937.29. Stocks opened lower Wednesday morning with investors concerned about the looming fiscal cliff and the European economy. Protests against Greek austerity measures persisted for the second day in Athens with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras asking parliament to vote on spending cuts and tax increases.

Received this link from Insider this afternoon and told to look it over carefully.  They remain completely confounded as to how the reported #s and final results appear to directly conflict with data such as appears in this link. (Snip) Mitt Romney earned MORE votes among liberals, moderates, and conservatives than were cast for the Republican candidate in 2008 – in fact, this improvement was by a full 7% over 2008 – a very significant improvement.  Mitt Romney earned more votes from Protestants, Catholics, and Jews than the Republican nominee received in 2008, including a 9-point improvement among Jewish voters
