Last Tuesday evening I went to bed in denial, thinking that there must be some mistake. I declined to believe that a majority of the voters were stupid enough to re-elect a President whose incompetence makes Jimmy Carter seem Washingtonian by comparison, whose mendacity far surpasses that of a pathological liar like Bill Clinton, and whose administration is so corrupt that it actually evokes nostalgia for the Nixon era. (Snip) On Wednesday, forced to face the grim reality of the election results, I became angry. My seething thoughts turned first to the “news” media.
I´m making plans as these libs celebrate. Massive voter fraud and all we can do is shrug our shoulders. The corruption we´ve seen is only the tip of the iceberg. I wonder how long the money will last before the looting starts?

I agree, #2. We´ll never walk it back, but we can gather our spirits up and realize we have a bigger fight now than we had in 2009 and 2010. And we did pretty darn well in 2010 (except for Harry Reid, that is.... this one´s personal to me!).
Of course, one thing we CAN´T do, that the Democrat/Progressives are so good at, is pay our side to stay on our side. We could, actually, but that goes against everything we say we´re for.
I´ve been through these grief stages at least twice since election night, and I´m back at despondency currently. I was all up in FIGHT for 2 days immediately after, but I keep thinking..... what´s the point.
We are still HALF the country - if not more. We just don´t cheat and steal. We need to start fighting for our country on the same level they are fighting to destroy it.
We must never give up. Never, never, never, never, never. (Thanks, Winston Churchill).
Fight for our republic. And ask God to help us reclaim it. Let us be the country God intended us to be. If we are part of something that God is blessing, and they are working for the destruction of good things (such as Christianity) we will win. Eventually.
A pretty good article. However, I don´t agree with his assertion that Romney was a weak candidate. Over the past week or so, I´ve come to the conclusion that a campaign of ideas isn´t going to work anymore. Which is a testament to the idiocy of our voting public that prefers MTV & Dancing with the Stars, rather than developing their intellect.
What does that leave us for the future? The only way a campaign of ideas like Romney ran is going to sell, is to sugar-coat it or wrap it in a pretty package. The only other alternative would be to adopt Obama´s tactic of presenting no ideas, but demonize the opponent and divide their base. Without the help of the media, that doesn´t seem likely for the GOP.
There seems to be a pattern to Presidencies these days. Democrat alternates with Republican. Each President is given two terms unless the public perceive there to be extaordinary circumstances that warrant his removal after just one term. I don´t think it´s worthwhile wallowing in grief about it. Wallowing is a form of self-indulegence and doesn´t achieve anything.
Right now I´m in the "mad as hell" stage, and I´m not going to get over it. On the Lightworker´s Inauguration day, I will display my American flag with black crepe draped around it. I am also putting an empty chair, a flag, and more black crepe around it.
I live in a small neighborhood and I have two neighbors I like, but I think they probably voted for Obama, as did several others in the neighborhood. We have two sets of doctors (husband and wife) - all 4 are black, and a white person who is a cancer specialist from New York City in our hood.
We all get along beautifully, but I need to do something to show my displeasure. Hell I´m 70 and about to turn 71. If I have a brain bleed, I´ve just read, doctors can´t treat the problem - just make me comfortable, according to the death panel regulation!
We need to look forward (I hate that word) to 2014. Hopefully we can generate enough disgust that by 9/12/2013 we can have another March on Washington of a million plus people as we did on 9/12/2009 and do it again in 2014. We must show our disgust every time Obama does something unConstitutional.
As I posted on another thread, I believe this happened for the best. Obama would not have been gracious in defeat. He would have exhorted his minions to burn this country to the ground. If Romney & Ryan had won, and I am not so sure they really lost, we would have paid for 100 years at least for the victory.
Romney did not lose. The election was stolen from him. Chrissy said ´thank god for Sandy´ and the night following the election, Hannity said ´the media in this country is dead.´ It wasn´t too hard to add them up and get what happened.
All the media conspired to call the election for O by the 10 o´clock news. Then it was back to regular programming. I might be more enraged if I didn´t think Rove and Romney sort of deserved this. They chose the voters they wanted and it wasn´t those who listen to Rush or belong to the Tea Party. This was their fault as much as anything.
Good Article. After reading many election fallout articles I believe the best overall explanation is Our Lord´s words.. " The children of darkness are wiser in their own generation than the children of light" Obama is a big success at being destructive and uses every weakness in the population very effectively to retain power. Others who would end the destruction are too trusting and not real leaders. Romney was a good man but not a perfect leader. Where is the leader that could clean up this mess? It was not Romney, is there anyone in his right mind who would try and inherit this mess? The next candidate should be one who will articulate the situation clearly fully expecting to be defeated by the opponents wishful thinking!
I agree with David to a degree, however it still doesn´t explain the fact of why half of the population voted for a candidate (BO) whose record and corrupt admin should have been easily defeated and thrown out of office no matter who the challenger was (massive voter fraud maybe). We have raised at least two generations of a functionally illiterate population/electorate. Critical thinking doesn´t exist and we have a society of entitlement seekers...that said we are now on the road to the USA of Greece! In the end we the people could have stopped this skid into deep socialism, however a little over half of us were suckered into another four years of movement in a backward direction and changes that in the long run will not pan out the way that this half thinks that it will...bottom line (dollars and cents reallity coming for those in the entitlement half) is sooner or later you have to pay the piper!
I hate to be so negative but I believe that this country will never be what it once was. Many of our young people have been poisoned by the media and brainwashed by the educational system. A fair number of our politicians are corrupt. They go to Washington to line their pockets and acquire pension and health benefits most of us can only dream of. Not to mention the crony capitalism that has made them wealthy far beyond their ability to earn it. The work ethic that fueled our economy is lost. Religion has been mocked and ridiculed. Our society is profane to the point that any behavior is tolerated. Can we come back from this? I believe we had our chance on November 6th. We have to face the fact that actions have consequences and we will not be exempt. I am not a maudlin person but I can recognize the truth when I see it. Economic experts have been telling us the economy will collapse if we continue down the road of big government and more spending. The future looks grim and I loathe the voters who sold their freedom so cheaply. Guess I am at the resigned but still angry phase.
Heard about a man flying the American flag upside down & his neighbors being upset on the news last night. Thinking about buying a small American flag sticker & putting it in the back window of my car.
Pre Ordained, the only way out now is total collapse of the federal system.
It will happen down the road, prepare your selves and your families for the future.
The young in our society are not prepared for survival, the death and destruction will be unprecedented, the longing for freedom will overshadow the desire for material things, and the circle will come full.
I hate to sound so negative, but it´s over. The fat lady has sung. The left has been waiting for this for decades. They control everything and will not let this opportunity slip through their fingers We know there was cheating and voter fraud, but what can we do about it? Obama and his allies are going to completely destroy this country. They will get complete cover from the msm!
Over the weekend, the Obama administration announced that it had met its self-imposed deadline to fix its balky health insurance exchange website for the "vast majority" of users. U.S. Health and Human Services officials issued a graphics-heavy, information-light report that claimed great leaps of progress from the earlier crash-prone website that frustrated most users for weeks. The administration says, Mission (Largely) Accomplished. The feds set the bar low and now claim to have cleared it. Federal officials crowed over the weekend that the website can handle 50,000 users at a time. But many more than that will likely flood in,
WASHINGTON — White House officials, asserting that the HealthCare.gov website is largely fixed, are under mounting pressure from Democrats and close allies to hold senior-level people accountable for the botched rollout of President Obama’s signature domestic achievement and to determine who should be fired. For weeks, the president and his aides have said they are not interested in conducting a witch hunt in the middle of the effort to rescue the website. But in the West Wing, the desire for an explanation about how an administration that prides itself on competence bungled so badly remains an urgent mission.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—Sen. Mark Pryor, speaking to a group of college officials, recently offered a biblical solution to Washington´s gridlock. Politicians should follow the teachings of Jesus, the two-term Democrat said, quoting from the Sermon on the Mount. Dale Leatherman, an administrator at a Baptist college, warmed up to the Arkansas senator after those remarks but said he still couldn´t imagine voting for Mr. Pryor next year. "Even though he personally supports conservative ideas," Mr. Leatherman said, "I struggle with the fact that he´s part of a party that does not." The ability of Democrats to keep control of the Senate in 2014
So Nov. 30 has come and gone, the day that President Barack Obama promised HealthCare.gov would be up and working. And his administration says that the site is working, dramatically better than when it first went up. On the other hand, anecdata suggest slow enrollment. So what does it all mean? Is the website working? Is Obamacare saved? To answer that, let’s break down the details a bit. First, the good news: Compared with the chaos of October, the consumer experience is much better. It could hardly have gotten worse;
The Supreme Court’s decision to hear two constitutional challenges to the HHS contraception mandate has frightened Obamacare’s media cheerleaders into launching another of their propaganda campaigns designed to protect the “reform” law from itself. Those Americans still naïve enough to rely on establishment news outlets for information on current events are being told that Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius are part of a sinister conspiracy to restrict access to birth control, endow corporations with religious rights, and escalate the “war on women.”
One story the mainstream media just loves: Republicans at war. The party’s splintered to shreds, torn beyond repair, cut in two, broken asunder. They write it week after week. The House speaker loses a vote, boom, the Republican Party is ruptured. But guess what story they never write? This one. The Democratic Party is ripped to tatters. The fake lovefest that broke out after Hillary Rodham Clinton wandered off into the wilderness in June 2008 is over. She’s back, and so is her troublemaking husband (who last week advised President Obama to “honor” his commitment
It was named the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and that, right from the start, was, and is, is a double-barreled falsehood. To set the record straight, we can call this worm-infested rose by its proper name — the Patient Be Damned and let Premiums Rip Act. Since the official roll-out of the new law on Oct. 1, millions of people have lost their existing health care plans — and many or even most of those people are stumbling around in a state of shock, having discovered the sky-high replacement costs on the new insurance exchanges. The worst is yet to
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
