Romney Concedes; Appeals
for End of Partisan Bickering

National Journal, by Alex Roarty

Original Article

Posted By:LOL Thomas, 11/7/2012 1:23:36 AM

Mitt Romney said during his concession speech Tuesday night that he would “pray” for President Obama’s success during his second-term in office, urging all of the politicians of both parties to push aside partisan politics to solve the nation’s problems. "The nation, as you know, is at a critical point,” he said, addressing a subdued crowd of supporters in Boston. “At a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work and we citizens also have to rise to the occasion.”

Sad. So much for huge crowds, enthusiasm, grass roots efforts. So much for Rush, Barone, Rove. Done. Never will listen to them again. Ever.

Bye bye GOP. You've told us to sit down, shut up and go along for the last time. If there is anything left to save in 2016, let's hope a real third party arises out of the ashes of our country, and rids us of the blight that is our elected "representatives".

How pathetic the Romney campaign and repubs have proven to be.

Mr Romney, "reaching across the aisle" (to include steadfast refusal to enforce the border and overhaul immigration policies) is what brought us to this juncture.

Pardon me while I retch across the aisle.

#4 I'm with #1. I feel betrayed by the American people. I am a political junkie and used to love following every tiny political detail. Now I am battle worn and am tired seeing our side kicked in the teeth constantly from the Unions, Democrats, and the Hollywood-media complex (Axis of evil). Its a losing battle as evidenced by tonight's results. The bad guy wins by convincing the low-information voters of our Country that the good guy is the bad guy. Game over.

Those of us in the reality based community realize that Rush is an entertainer, not a politician to be taken seriously or deified. Hannity is a shyster, mildly entertaining but rarely fair or truthful. Dear Leader is a bad guy, but he is not some kind of communist plant. He may be a socialist, but we are still a nation of laws and we've got a GOP congress that has prevented Barry from doing any more significant damage since 2010. The long term scenario here is actually good. Markets will realize that Bernanke and his Krugman School of Alchemy is not a stable or long term growth strategy. Commodities will continue to boom because of government imposed scarcity, funny money, and the secular BRIC story. If the economy doesn't improve in the next two years you could see a repeat of 2010, but this time GOP taking the Senate. We need better party leadership. More discipline. Better candidates (sorry Akin and Murdock). It was always a long shot to beat the First Black President and his media. The conservative movement has some growing up to do.

Uh huh - and guess which side will be expected to do all the reaching and bending and compromising. NO THANKS. Frankly our narrow margin of power in the House is the only thing standing between us and a total socialist bulldozer driven by Barry and Harry (Reid). Scary and sad outcome tonight. I do not know what the GOP needs to do next but clearly our course of action in 2008 and 2012 was not effective enough.

The demographics of the country have turned against the Republican Party as it is now constituted, and they are not going to win national elections in the future.

Obama will now call for what amounts to amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens, and to put them on a path to citizenship that is liberal Democrat code for eventually granting them US voting rights. Since the vast majority of the legalized aliens will be poor low wage earners with limited educations, most of them who register to vote will be liberal Democrat voters. If only half of the legalized aliens ever vote they would amount to 10 million or so new liberal Democrat voters. Can you explain how the Republicans will then be able to undo such a huge number of new liberal Democrat voters to be able to win future national elections, there is no way.

Tonight you saw the majority of USA voters essentially cross the Rubicon and there is no coming back.

Romney was gracious and classy in the speech we didn't want to see him give. It's what's expected and he did it well, though you could see the pain out there for sure. The end of partisan bickering? Hardly.

Very good and depressing point, #19. Very true. If that happens CA will be even more down the drain than it already is. It's a bleak night all around.

#19 and several others have posted about demographics - the USA is changing fast and we cannot win national election with only the white vote. Demographics as-is are hurting us. Consider: in 2008 Ohio's vote was 83% white. Tonight it was 79%. In 2016 it will probably be only 75-76%. And so on. Tonight is too soon to have a frank discussion on this subject but we do need to dig into it in the months to come. We need to promote conservative values to a wider group of America, we need a bigger tent, Obama and the Dems have scooped up every group that they can. And they don't intend to give an inch of their base back. We need to work hard for this. Our GOP convention audience in Tampa, did anyone else notice it was almost 100% white people. Our rallies for Romney, were almost 100% white people. That is what has to change or else we are destined to become an opposition party only.

We should concede our failures and move on. The Tea Party proved it can move mountains. Now it needs to decide it's next move. We need to have an organized John Galt movement. If the majority of this country is controlling things then let them start producing. See what happens to this country when food stores start to run low on items.

I'm not sure how a movement like this happens. Clearly, we need a leader. But I can tell you one thing. I will not pay for another movie ever again. And if it weren't for my wife objecting, I would disconnect cable. Why give Hollywood money?

No more big ticket purchases if I can help it. Hunker down.

If some of you mean the Republican Party must pander to each minority group, trying to outdo Democrats? It will not work. Trying to go Dem-lite is killing the party. Second huge problem we have is a GOP establishment that only tolerates conservatives. They assist the MSM to destroy good candidates like Allen West, Michelle Bachmann, etc. Until these deep problems are dealt with, we will lose.

The let down is huge,having no contingency plan for four more years of misery. Hubby is profoundly depressed and feels everything he has ever worked for and supported has been undermined by a brain-dead population of voters who know nothing more than pop culture and are too stupid to recognize this progressive communist take over. This election has been nothing but an exorbitantly expensive past-time for too many people. I want this fellow impeached at the very least, and soon.

3:13 am. Should be sleeping because I have another tough work day ahead of me. Like all days, I'll get up, do that work the very best I can. The difference is that , after tonight's rotten outcome, I will start tomorrow with the idea that I will withhold every penny I can. I will do my very best to deny the takers. I will be more vocal about being paid in cash and offer a discount for cash. I'll pay people , who provide me with work I need done, with cash. My few dollars withheld will not starve out the takers but, perhaps combined with the few dollars from a million or so of us, will start to do damage. If I can NOT pay for one Obama phone , it will be something to make me smile a little. I'll hand over as little as possible. The takers , get from Gov, which has no money except ours. Deny them as much as possible. The 'alto ATM' is shutting down.

I want to know about the fraud. I simply cannot believe that the massive crowds and the energy of so many patriots went for naught. Always eager to give up, the repub candidates are. They take the "high road", concede, and leave the rest of us to suffer the horrible consequences. I wonder if Rush will tell us today that it's time to panic.

I was proud to stand with Mitt Romney and I know his heart breaks for this great country. He and his family don't have to worry about their future when it comes to everyday living but ours have to.

The victory last night was for the underclass of America. That is exactly why Obama let all those illegal immigrant students stay. That is why he ran a divisive campaign and early on defined Mitt Romney as an evil rich guy with no retort coming from the Romney side here in Ohio.

Romney was right for the times and gave a good fight right to the very end. He should not be blamed. The low info voters, the knee-pad media, the changing demographics of our new welfare state, the horrendous untrue attacks on Romney, etc. are what did it. It's so very depressing and heartbreaking to think of four mores years of Obama fundamentally changing America.

The numbers are very confusing. Supposedly, the Independents were breaking 59% for Romney. Huh? We were told that was the deal breaker. We were told Republicans would cast more votes than Democrats this year. Remember 2010? Well, if so, the numbers just don't add up. IMO, the bottom line is ballot boxes were stuffed in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, PA, VA and FL and probably more states. Email voting in NY & NJ? I'm sure there was no voter fraud involved there, right? The fix was in.

Egypt´s electoral commission said Sunday the presidential election will take place on May 26 and 27, 10 months after the army overthrew Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi.

CAIRO - Three Hamas militants who infiltrated into Sinai from Gaza were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to assassinate former Egyptian defense minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is running for president, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai. The three carried a coded letter with instructions to execute the assassination, passed by a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who escaped to Gaza.

Egyptian army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has recently intensified contact with the Russian Defense Ministry in order to expedite the completion of an arms deal. According to senior Egyptian sources that the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai quoted in a report on Wednesday, the deal with Russia includes advanced aircraft, monitoring equipment and other sophisticated weapons that would be used to fight terrorism emanating from Sinai.

This morning, Lois Lerner again pleaded the Fifth, refusing to answer any of Chairman Darrell Issa’s questions.  After a few minutes of Lerner’s repetitive non-response, Issa adjourned the hearing, so we don’t know if the committee planned to address this particular issue. (Snip) During the normal workweek, former IRS director Lois Lerner may have been in charge of delaying tax-exempt applications for conservative groups, but on a Sunday it appears that she was fast-tracking, approving and backdating an application for an organization led by an alien resident with ties to terrorists. The organization is the Barack

Cairo - An Egyptian court will begin hearing testimonies in the murder trial of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi from Wednesday, when a former top military officer will give evidence. [Snip] Morsi was present in the court, inside a soundproof glass dock to prevent him from interrupting proceedings with defiant outbursts, as he had done in previous hearings. Morsi and 14 co-defendants, including former aides, are accused of inciting the killing of opposition activists outside the presidential palace in December 2012, an incident that hastened his overthrow by the military almost seven months later.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
