The Way Back
Barnstable Patriot [Hyannis, MA], by Steve Tefft

Original Article

Posted By:swami, 12/1/2012 8:13:06 AM

What now, Republicans? Since their stunning electoral loss, the GOP has been bombarded – from without and within – with analyses blaming their defeat on an array of problems. The Republican base has become “too old, male and white.” They are technologically inept. Mitt Romney was too patrician. The GOP is caught in a demographic tailspin from which it will never return. Much of this is overwrought. The truth is simple, as it usually is. Romney ran a weak campaign whose strategists badly misread the electorate (which explains their absolute shock at losing).

HOW NOT TO FIGHT
Don´t fight a street thug in your coat and tie. (the gentlemanly approach is neither effective nor admired)
Don´t listen to the advise of your enemies girlfriend on the sideline. (the press)
Don´t stiff arm and insult the strong young guys who come along side to help you fight. (Ron Paul fans)

The extreme concern of the GOPers is not that the GOP is in a tail-spin; it is that the US and Western Civilization is about to end, destroyed by debt, laziness and greed.

The problem isn´t conservatives, our ideas or our approach. The problem is that about half of all Americans are morons too frightened of life to be able to consider living without big nanny government to coddle them.

I am weary of the aftermath know it alls. I hope that the dweebs that voted for the flapeared one suffer as much pain as possible. The idea that Mitt was not good and was too patrician is plain silly or this clod was not watching. Mitt would have won if so call third parties, like paul, huntsman and 13 other candidates had not been on the ballot. What in hell did they think they were doing?

In the very same election Romney just lost, the Tea Party-energized House GOP won huge (just as it did in 2010, and as it will likely do again in 2014).

We can wring our hands and lament that "there are more of them than there are of us." Or maybe we can drop this "electable RINO" nonsense and try running a true Conservative for President for a change. Reagan won two landslide victories, if I am not mistaken.

Here´s a message for everyone in the
nation who is not a Democratic voter: If you don´t vote for the Republican nominee and the evil Democrats vote for theirs, they will win.

What difference does anything make when you meekly walk away from EVERY polling place in Philadelphia for hours on election day? A crucial swing state and you allow some thugs to eject you? Not even a fist fight? No coverage, no comments then or now? No camcorders, sheriffs, SEALS or anything at the polling place where the punk New Panther brandished a nightstick last election? They were back blocking doorways this election, laughing at the cowards at the RNC and Pennsylvania who sit by while they steal PA right in front of you.

The organization, the message, all of that could have been better, but taking a stand on voting fraud, voting intimidation, denial of military votes, should have been done for 12 years. TOO late now.

Romney did run a weak campaign - he seemed more intent on not losing than on winning. His commercials (and living in a swing state, I saw them all) were weak and seemed to hit one theme only - jobs. He never pointed out how gas prices have doubled under the Won, or how The Won gave all his cronies handouts, or his promise to Putin,the Keystone Pipeline or any number of other things the Kenyan did. He deserved to lose.

Terror´s Return

I´m surprised only that it took this long. We´d gone 11 years, 7 months, 4 days and 6 hours since the September 11th attacks without a major, successful, Islam-based, civilian-targeted terror attack on American soil. Oh, they tried; Faisal Shahzad´s thwarted Times Square car bomb – strikingly close in composition to the pair of pressure-cooker explosives that shattered the Boston Marathon – was perhaps the most visible of failed attacks, along with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s non-exploding underwear. But the fact that we’ve gone so long between major attacks is a mystery,

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Pelosi assists in Holy Week
foot-washing ritual

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Deadbeat on the Range

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Illinois Dems to offer $100 million in
taxpayer money to lure Obama library site

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
