On Thursday's The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer played a montage of liberal comedians poking fun at election night coverage with the jokes overwhelmingly targeting Republicans and conservatives. "Turns out it's not all bad news for the Republicans. I guess it seems depression is covered by ObamaCare," quipped Tonight Show host Jay Leno. "A big night for the Democrats, Obama won the electoral vote and the popular vote. Mitt Romney on the other side won the unpopular vote," Late Show host David Letterman derided Romney.

Someday those that are laughing and making fun of Romney will someday wish he had been the one elected instead of Obama . After he destroys this country, and the freedom that we enjoy no longer exist. They will long for the old days.
Nothing will educate such mockers but seeing and experiencing for themselves the consequences of Leftist fantasy ideology. Many, though not all, are capable of learning, but they are going to have to do it the hard way. Too bad the rest of us have to go along for the ride with them - but if Obama manages, as I think he will, to bring Leftism and the Leftist establishment into disrepute, the sea of troubles into which he is steering the ship of state may prove in the end to have been worth it.
Leftism, of which Obama is the spokesperson and the liberal establishment the cheerleaders, is founded upon a fundamental misunderstanding of reality. Schemes and projects based upon such false assumptions cannot possibly achieve their intended goals. They are bound to create unintended and undesirable consequences.
It should be interesting to see how many who are laughing and exulting now will be doing so in four years. Actually it may be considerably sooner when the laughter ceases. The Obama administration is a house of cards, all talk, wishful thinking and make believe thus far unmolested by reality. That is what has his supporters fooled. They are like sleepwalkers - but the time of their awakening is almost here. They won't be laughing then.
They own it now. There will be no compromise from the Democrats. They have waited too long for this. There is too much codified law now to even begin a defense not to mention the demographics and stupidity of an electorate conditioned from birth in this evil ideology. This is a place we've never been in our modern history but, there are a lot of fallen societies in world history that have.
"Spiking the football" is what we used to call bad sportsmanship. Even worse than being a poor loser, being a poor winner, a taunter, a braggart doing things that turns any competition personal... so personal that revenge can become a driver. revenge as a motive leads to malicious intent and dirty play.
It seems the more low brow the competitor, the more they taunt their advisaries. My suspicion is that "fair play" and "good sportsmanship" were an extension of chivalry. Cheating at the joust in front of ladies and gentlemen wouldn't be good for social standing. Even rules for fair play in war were established to prevent wholesale slaughter.
The fortunate among us were taught the rules of fair play and good sportsmanship as the means to keep competition honorable and bloodless. All I can say about CNN is, they must have been raised in some gutter.
Keep digging your financial grave, CNN. The sooner y'all are finished the better. Piers Morgan? Andy Cooper? Roland Martin? Soldad O what's her name? You've got to be kidding me. At least MSNBC is entertaining -- albeit it the Siegfried and Roy kind of way.
I'm thinking how blessed Mitt Romney is today because he can't be blamed for this country's financial downfall. After eight years Obama and his happy throng will own their failure. There's no way the US can sustain the debt Obama has accumulated in the last four years. One day Romney will know 11/6/12 was the luckiest day of his life.
if i woke up tomorrow and heard that someone shot candy crowley or michael moore or bill maher or chris mathews or ed shultz to name but a few, i think i'd be able to keep my mourning well under control.
That popular vote victory is a subject I'd drop if I were them. It tends to lead the conversation toward Acorn, Jim Moran and so on. Reminds me I need to check to be sure the Donks aren't voting my dead parents via absentee ballot. ... Should we be putting out form language for people's wills specifying that executor is requested to remove name from voter rolls?
Let them laugh. As I recall, it was Marie Antoinette who said "Let them eat cake" just before the normally sedate and humble masses rose up, broke out the guillotine and commenced what is now a footnote in history. Must say I will not shed a tear as these cretins meet their sorry but deserved end. And they need to understand as well, that even their spawn will reap the whirlwind of destruction that their parents brought upon them.
Romney would have made a fine president, one capable of leading us out of this fiscal mess. The one that was elected is so serious about avoiding this fiscal cliff that he is going to freaking Burma next week. You own it Dems.
During a segment of The View Thursday morning, host Barbara Walters expressed her concerns over politicians swearing on a Bible upon taking office, noting the importance of “the separation of church and state” as an American value. The comments came up as the View crew discussed Sen. Mark Pryor‘s (D-AR) new political ad apologizing for his Obamacare support as well as insisting that the Bible should be a guiding presence in politics. After playing the ad, actress Jane Seymour told her hosts that “I think it’s really unfortunate when you have to bring religion into politics. I think religion is
Democrats have justifiably rejoiced in the divisions within the Republican Party which hamper its ability to speak with one voice and act with unity of purpose. The tea party faction within the GOP, once an unalloyed good that propelled the party to electoral victory in 2010, has been more of a headache than a boon ever since. The conservative faction of the Grand Old Party is often credited with robbing the party of electoral victories, torpedoing bipartisan legislative deals, and elevating gaffe-prone voices that force the GOP’s moderates to adopt a perpetual defensive crouch. The temptation for Democrats to partake
NEW YORK- The Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan plugged in when he famously went electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival sold Friday for nearly $1 million - the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000, including the auction house´s fees, for the sunburst-finish guitar, Christie´s said. Dylan´s legendary performance at the festival in Rhode Island 48 years ago marked his rupture with the folk movement´s old guard and solidified his shift away from acoustic music, like "Blowin´ in the Wind," toward amplified rock, such as "Like a Rolling Stone."
In late October, Texas Gov. Rick Perry went to Israel, not a surprising trip for a potential presidential candidate whose pro-Zionist views are well known. However, less widely known is his role in a breakthrough of sorts in academia and U.S.-Israeli relations. The Jerusalem Post reported: Texas A&M University will open a branch in Nazareth by October 2015 . . . The new institution, to be called the Peace Campus, will promote coexistence for the sake of education with a student population combining Arab, Jewish and foreign students. The faculty will be drawn from Arab, Jewish and international scholars. .
Murfreesboro, N.C.- Snow came early to the cotton and sorghum fields here, sending dozens of cash-strapped families to the food bank on a recent afternoon for frozen chickens, cucumbers and canned green beans. Quinetta Rascoe was waiting for them. Wearing a bright pink overcoat, a glittery rainbow scarf and an infectious grin, Rascoe climbed out of a Toyota sedan carrying a stack of Obamacare brochures. She eyed about 60 cars that were snaking into the parking lot behind Murfreesboro Baptist Church, prompting an unusual traffic jam one block off the town´s dozy Main Street. The food truck was late, and
Los Angeles County sheriff´s detectives allege that two men stole the t-top roof panel of a $400,000 Porsche after it crashed Saturday in Santa Clarita, killing "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker and another man. The department announced Thursday that one man was in custody and that another suspect was expected to surrender to detectives soon. The one suspect, 18-year-old Jameson Witty, was arrested on suspicion of grand theft and tampering with evidence. He was being held on $20,000 bail, officials said. In a news release, the Sheriff´s Department said the alleged theft occurred while the Porsche was being towed away.
Washington -The young black university student who walked up to the microphone at an anti-apartheid rally in 1980 was, by his own admission, cynical about the virtues of political activism. Barack Obama had spent his early years of college submerged in books by African American writers by the likes of James Baldwin, W E B Du Bois and Malcolm X, wrestling with his own mixed racial identity. But it was the campaign for equality thousands of miles away in South Africa that first spurred Obama, then aged 19, into action: taking part in a divestment rally in his sophomore year
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
