Let’s get the emotional response to the Disaster of 2012 out of the way. I don’t know about you, but this is how I felt last night and continue to feel today. I couldn’t have said it better, Chuck. Sixty million Americans did vote to blow it up. Emotion out of the way, what happened to about a million John McCain voters? In 2008, the uninspiring nominee who became the GOP standard-bearer because of a timely endorsement from orange Charlie Crist racked up 58,343,671 votes. In 2012, four years after America has seen Barack Obama’s special blend of malevolent
Comments: The author asks where the approximately one million votes went who voted for McCain. I have not seen one article mention Gary Johnson. The link below from the Washington Times stated that in Ohio alone a poll showed Johnson getting 5 percent of the vote. That spelled disaster.
The Bible says the poor will always be with us, but they should also have mentioned idiots - we will always have them with us as well unfortunately - synonymous with third-party candidates & third parties.
Exactly right OP. TWO terms of Clinton should have made this crystal clear for every dope that voted 3rd party or who didn't vote. ALL of what follows is on YOU. Sending a message in 2008 resulted in all the debacles of BHO and the much bigger long term problem of a Supreme Court about to negate the entire check and balance system. So great job. Not voting for McCain got you Sortofanightmare and Kegan. Voting for Gary Johnson will get you our worst fears. Wonderful and thanks for destroying the country Johnson. Your vanity trip empowers the alien.
It wasn't just a million McCain voters who did not show up, according to Sean Trende at RCP, 7 million fewer white voters showed up. All day long, the national press reported that this was a record turnout, long lines everywhere. Yet in the end the popular total was down 8 million from 2008. So strange.
Even though I voted I guess those 8 million felt the way I did, that there was no real chance, and that, in the event of an Obama victory, I would just shrug my shoulders and say goodbye to the United States. Empires and nations come and go, and it's just our turn to go. I'm ashamed to be an American, ashamed that there are people who would vote for Obama not to mention Warren, Pelosi, Lee, Grayson and a host of others. Ashamed of a country that pays any attention to movie stars offscreen, and reality stars anywhere. Ashamed of a country that allows itself to become just another country on the world map, and ashamed of a country that let millions of its soldiers die for a country that turns out to be, in the end, just another on the dustheap of history. Only God endures.
Maybe all the people out of work who normally would want a job were scared enough to vote for Obama, the best hope to continue their 'free stuff.' It will no doubt be worse four years from now.......the Socialists will have guaranteed their staying in power with more and more people receiving free stuff. They will print money to fund the jobless....meanwhile, the rest of us who actually worked and earned our little stockpile of money will find it worth less and less. I'm bereft.
I have been commenting on Lucianne that American needs new political parties. I understand that 15 million fewer people voted in 2012 than in 2008, and that Romney got less votes than McCain. How can this be with so much at stake?
The answer is that less and less people have faith in our political process, our politicians, and our political parties.
If true, this election means several contradictory things: 1. It was not the "record turnout" reported in the press all day long. 2. Despite enthusiastic reports from the Romney campaign and the RNC, the Republican GOTV was an absolute disaster. 3. The counties where Rove said the Republican vote total was up from 2008 on election night were actually down. 4. Despite the lack of large crowds in the closing days for McCain and huge crowds for Romney, Republicans were wildly more enthusiastic about McCain.
Hold onto your guns. You will be needing it for defense against Obama minions coming for your goods. Obama will find America isn't like Zimbabwe.
With the media firmly on the progressives' side, it is a matter of time before the Obama oligarchy starts nationalizing private property and robbing from his subjects to reward his cronies. In 2012, the fourth estate has turned out to be the fifth column in the nation.
One thing I know positively. We're shutting down our small business. There goes four more people onto the unemployment lines. I hate it so much, but we're tired of beating our heads against 4 dollar diesel, taxes and regulations and fines and insurance and living on my salary alone and the fear of the government and what they're going to do next. We're selling out, buying guns and ammo and sticking whatever we have left in a sock and hunkering down. Dear lord I hate this. But what I hate more are people who would sell their birthright for free stuff. People with ABSOLUTELY nothing in their lives to point to as personal worth but feel they're an invaluable asset to the world because of their mere existence. Thank you public education and your unnatural fixation on self esteem. Pigs in a feed lot have more worth than these people. (Sorry. Got carried away there a bit.)
Romney was a good candidate and this was a very good election effort. Various poling companies loudly proclaimed the democrat turnout would be different this season but the after the election results the TV land reality counts seemed wrong. The real problem was not the voters, counters or who was watching the counters. A firm owned by George Soros and operated in Spain took care of massaging the numbers. They did not have to follow the pundit’s theories because the rascals made up an alternate pro-Obama reality. The counters inserted facetious gross number and manipulated the results. (GIGO –Garbage in, Garbage out) No wonder the Dems weren’t worried. The results were preordained.
The company is called SCYTL. Look it up on Google. It is owned by George Soros and does many number counting jobs for the USA and the separate states.
Of course some people will deny fraud (with the flimsiest of excuses) but they denied the 1919 World Series, Fast and Furious and are currently trying to tell us that what we all know about Benghazi is the haze of war. “Walk on by folks, nothing to see here”
There was a haze of war with the elections and unless we adamantly protest it now, today, this election cycle, there will be no prospect for fair future elections. The count and recounts will always be phony but look perfect. (Just like Russia and Venezuela).
SCYTL, member the name.
The problem is. Who will investigate? Not the in the tank investigative reporters, the broadcast media, the NYT, the Department of Justice or the Attorney general? We have lost our voting voice and power; we are now subjects of the regimen.

If by "we lost" you mean America, you're dead on with that assessment. We now have 50+ percent of this nation's citizens who are progressive/socialists, hate America, want more and bigger government, more taxes (since most of them pay little or none), an impotent military, total acceptance of perverted chosen lifestyles, population control via infanticide, and taking the guns out of the hands of those that might defend freedom with them, an end to the Capitalist system that made this the wealthiest nation on earth, and of course continued contrition towards the fact that this nation once practiced slavery. That about sum it up? The reality is that we can no longer use the law-abiding, legal system to turn this ship around. They have effectively stacked the deck to that approach in their favor. Nothing left to do but to use their very own tactics and fight fire with fire, while we still possess the fire.
Repubs will never win when you have more than half the population (56 million) on food stamps . They voted for the freebies. They were afraid Romney would take away their free stuff. Dems love to tax & give away taxpayers $$$$. The makers lost to the takers. When is makers going to protest they are tired of paying for the ones who refuse to work. The won used taxpayers $$$$ to get the freebie votes. Also Romney should have included the tea party, he played it toooo safe.
One of the GOP leaders, (-might have been Gillespy, not sure), is toying with a bad idea for future campaigning & was on pbs this morning blaming the Romney loss on a lengthy & detailed list of his idea of GOP failures. Most of his, 'dirty laundry airing,' seemed to focus on supposed failures by the GOP to do like the dem pols by pandering, (my word for it!), to special interest groups, neatly compartmentalized, such as Latinos. He apparently thinks the GOP should be as divisive as the dems and copy their tactic of dividing Americans into special interest groups, ethnicities, genders, race, religion & etc., in order to court each one separately and apart from the rest, offering special policy favors for each in exchange for their votes. (...He didn't suggest adapting candidate's personal speech patterns to conform with each grouping like 0bama does, but that will probably come later! s/)
If political campaigning comes to THIS sort of twisted & divisive ploy by BOTH parties, the country is indeed in BIG trouble, for the authentic principles of equality & freedom, which are secured for us each in the Constitution, remain THE SAME EQUALLY for everyone. If that isn't the message of, ''America,'' what is?!! ...''E Pluribus Unim,'' Out of Many, One, lest some politicos forget!
The basic principles of freedom in the USA and EQUAL respect are the same for each human life as a valued individual American citizen. The GOP must convey Liberty's principles and Rights to each & every American citizen, ...absolutes which were secured by the Founders in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution and which have made America the beacon of Liberty on this planet since its founding.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
