Obama's victory is a harsh
lesson for Republicans

Los Angeles Times, by David Horsey

Original Article

The people have spoken. President Obama has won a chance to move beyond the stunted progress of his first term and, perhaps, become a historic president. On the losing side, the Republican Party remains shut out of the White House and has blown a chance to take over the U.S. Senate, largely because it catered to the narrow concerns of tea party zealots and social conservatives who imagined themselves as the only authentic Americans but who are, in fact, way out of step with most of the people in this country. If Republicans fail to learn the lesson of

"Stunted progress"?!?! What does the West Coast Slimes think ObamaCare, Dodd Frank, Lilly Ledbetter, the Afghan surge and the countless executive orders were? More knee pad time from David Horse's As.

Yeah, I'd say.

When we voted yesterday the line was out the door, around the block. Thinking record turnout.

So today, well, low turnout for both candidates, nobody interested.

Total BS. The obama Regime rigged the voting booths in many states, him (The Won) and down ticket as well. Why work for it if you can steal it.

I'm 60, no kids. that's my good news. You folks with kids and grandkids ... sorry to hear of your problem.

Read the article.

Obama pushes America to the end of a cliff...and the reporter criticizes the Republicans and tells them what to do to save America.

Got it.

Better idea... have the Democrats tell us what they would do... first.

And get this nonsense.. on KMOX radio's website, it reported that Obama wants to meet with Romney to work with him on improving the economy.

Romney should decline and repeat back to Obama all of the charges about the failed policies of the past that he accused Romney of.

Obama is once again looking for someone else to blame. Now he wants to blame the guy who lost. Duh.

We need to learn to love the "new USA?" And by that he means love any and all perversity, and any and all outrages against God's holiness, and any and all thuggery masquerading as fairness. Just shut up and learn to love it. I guess if I stop going to church, and stop reading the bible, and give up all my common sense and hard-earned wisdom I can make a start at loving the NEW USA! Woo hoo! Can't wait to start.

That is sooo true! Akin and Mourdock are just the most obvious of those who are out of step! The senate ought to be in GOP hands today - but for really, really stupid republicans.

And to the victor go the spoils. Enjoy your day in the sun, Mr. Horsey. We're not done yet. You can attribute President Obama's victory to those racist tea partiers, but we're not the ones who oppress minorities by encouraging an entitlement mentality, that would be your party. We don't really care what homosexuals, transgenders and various other sexually fixated individuals do with their bodies. Again, that is your party. And we really do welcome immigrants to this country with open arms as long as they come here legally with a desire to better themselves and become productive citizens. Your party is the one that uses them as political chattel to further your warped agenda. Those of us who love our country won't ever give up. So, enjoy it while you can. We're not done yet.

The political party of spoiled children will gladly lecture the party of adults. But we must not take that advice. There is a culture war. The intelligentsia, the media elite, the Hollywood elite will tell the public that every responsible, pro-growth proposal is hateful, racist, greedy, stupid, etc., etc.

The necessary, but very difficult task of the party of adults is to go over the heads of our "opinion leaders," our "objective reporters," and get actual truth to the people.

Election fraud by our opinion leaders gave the gullible masses a totally false view of Obama's role in the recent storm, in Benghazi, in the "rescue" of GM, and in every other disaster that Obama either brought about or did nothing to relieve.

The people want to believe in a socialist utopis. They seem ready to accept Marxism, or someting not much different, totally oblivious to the lessons of history and true scholarship.

We will need to educate the masses. Or perish.

I will remain "out of step" with money hungry, moral deficient Republicans. I am tired of them blaming Conservatives for all their woes in the political arena. Romney was not even close to being Conservative and yet he also lost, did he not? You lost, and so did I, but at least I lost with my traditional values and morals in tact.

Liberals always have such interesting advice for conservatives.

The GOP “gerrymandered” its way to holding the House? Has this moron ever looked at a districting map? While there obviously are districts designed to benefit the GOP, there are legions more that are quite the opposite.

Bottom line, the “Tea Party” candidates for the House did just fine.

Strangely, the left is prissily pleased about this “new America” presented here. The unfortunate reality is that this “new America” is a simple downgrade to match the rest of the Euro-socialist world. There is nothing “new” about it, it was a model of failure many decades ago.

What was new was the American experiment, may it rest in peace.

This article misses the boat. Another release says that Romney got fewer votes than John McCain. Here is the simple truth: We have a two party system. If you don't vote for the nominee of your party, the other party will win. It's that simple.

Any conservative who sat on his hands yesterday and didn't vote, or who voted for some lunatic third party candidate as a matter of principle is too stoopid to live, mnuch less to vote. You knows who you is.

Perhaps I am in denial, but the more I think about the election, the happier I am that Obama won and that Romney lost.

Here's why. Like many people, I believe that Barack Obama and people like him do not know what they are doing. They do not understand how the world works. Their theories and grand schemes for human betterment and social progress are based upon untenable illusions about human beings, hence cannot possibly succeed but are bound to produce unsatisfactory results. The record of history as well as everyday experience makes this obvious to me.

It is obvious to me and to many others. It is by no means obvious to people like Barack Obama and their followers. We know from experience that it is useless to argue with such people. They are certain that they are right and that their plans will work if given a chance.

The only chance of changing anyone's mind consists of trying out some of the plans and noting the results. Even bad results will of course be rationalized away by hard core ideologues and true believers - but I think that the ordinary American dopes who have supported Obama may well begin to reconsider when they see and experience for themselves the bitter fruits of the fantasy ideology of Leftism. Such at least is my hope. It is the long way round the mountain and is likely to cause significant damage and suffering - but it appears to be the only hope for some people to re-learn lessons that have been learned and forgotten many times before now.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years".

From White House Insider and some person called Lane Cherry - if there was massive cheating, it was done with the complicity of the Republicans. They knifed Romney and all of us in the back so that they can run Jeb Bush in 2016. I'll not vote for another bush, thank you. Not the way they are doing it.

This is a fairly accurate view of the current political reality. California provides 20% of the votes needed to win the electoral college, that is a very large base. Republicans would do well to adapt to the facts that exist instead of insisting that some alternate universe is reality.

It is a harsh lesson because the Republicans could have won it - I agree.
However, it's worth noting the Democrats may be crowing a bit too much. They are dependent upon massively lopsided vote totals from a handful of demographic groups. Also, issues such as the auto bailout and Iraq have been spent.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

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.
