Obama can´t help but rub our
noses in his election victory

American Thinker, by Ed Lasky

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/22/2012 11:06:31 AM

Recall that Barack Obama told voters on the campaign trail not to boo when he mentioned Mitt Romney´s name but "to vote for revenge." He was appealing to the lowest common denominator in people: the desire to blame others for their woes. Instead of inspiring Americans to reach for their higher ideals or to, as President Abraham Lincoln might phrase it, their "better angels," he relied on the views of those people who inspired him - Jeremiah Wright and Saul Alinsky. Wright put the blame for much of what ails the world on "white man´s greed"

The official vote tally has it that fewer people voted in 2012 than did in 2008. That is not possible. Every account that I have seen indicated massive voter turnout. Where we voted, the line was 30 minute wait just to get in the door of the building.

obama stole the election via massive fraud. Gamed the voting machines.

He´s not my President.

The roost will be landing on this chicken´s protruding jaw in the next two years, and it won´t be pretty. Jimmy Carter lost Iran. Wonder who Barry will lose and get us all in trouble.

The Republicans need a Lee Atwater. These other jokers (republican consultants, chairman, so called leadewrs, etc.) don´t understand the democrats will lie, cheat, steal, do anything to win.

#2, president zero has destabilized the middle east that will cause us grief for the forseeable future, as the muslim brotherhood comes out of the caliphate closet.
I don´t think anyone can give an honest estimate of the damage the kenyan klown has done to our great nation. It is immeasurable.
And for the first time in my life, I see little hope for the United States. I don´t know if the republicans can ever put together a message, plus find good candidates who know how to keep their mouths shut, to take back the congress and the presidency.

In the very, very near future we are going to be in the middle of an economic and political perfect storm, as nations are bankrupted, pensions fail, and Islamist violence spreads world wide. Obama and his team will be totally inept in handling any of this. His focus now is on destroying Republicans, but that fixation is going to be derailed when the world explodes. Benghazi cover-ups don’t work on a macro scale.

This sorry excuse in the White Hut will get his comeuppance. Not sure exactly when, but it´s coming soon.

We will need to find a way to combat charges of racism, which will be used forever as a way for minorities advance their strength.

From yesterday´s story on super market riots in Argentina:

President Cristina "Fernandez was re-elected with 54 percent of the vote last year, but her popularity has declined since she began digging ever deeper into the pockets of the middle and upper classes to finance her populist policies".

We will surely share the same fate with our reelected president. Inflation, worthless currency, declining living standards, massive political corruption and social upheaval will be Obama´s legacy, just like Argentina, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.

#1 says it for me. Any bets that Obama won´t be peaceably leaving in 2016. My guess is that he will create a crisis that only he can solve and "postpone" the election because of it. This postponement may last his lifetime. The other possibility is that Hillary will be "elected" in 2016, and then Obama will re-emerge in 2020 or 2024.

y´know, just the way Brown vs. Board of Education drove up the prestige of the feds, Obama might just drive a historic shift back to the states. He´s a new Bull Connor in his own way - becoming a symbol of the governance people do not want. The things the feds do so well that we like, actually can in very many cases with the help of technology be done just as well by smaller entities. Cities are for being bombed in, and taxed, and outvoted by the cemeteries.

Lasky puts the proper adjective to The Won´s behavior: juvenile.

In another must read today we see the other governing aspect of Obama´s personality, his narcissism.

No wonder everything he touches (except getting elected) turns to dross.

The margin of Obama´s "victory" in the swing states of Ohio, Colorado, Florida, and Virginia was 320,000 votes--ALL COMBINED. Well within the margin of fraud and theft.
Had Romney won those 4 states, he would be preparing for his inauguration right now.
When you have many voting districts in Cuyahoga County, Ohio voting 100% for Obama, and not a single vote for Romney, and when you have more voters in Richmond, VA than were registered, you can pretty much be sure how Obama "won" the election.
Like everything else about him, his election was a fraud.

Agree with posters who say that this election was rigged. We need to get back to paper ballots and keep the media out of the loop until every vote is counted. It would be better to have to wait for the result than to hurriedly "project" a winner. The media does this with approval of the democrat party because they know that perception is reality. What do you think would have happened if fraud was uncovered and Romney would have actually won? It would have caused a civil war and I believe that is why no great effort was made to investigate all these anomalies. It is a pity that the threat of an angry mob can decide an election now. Obama is a fraud and his party cheated to put him back into office. He can crow all he wants. It seems he excels in that, but he is an unmitigated disaster as a President and history will prove it.

Poster #6 nails it. There is a perfect storm of destruction brewing for this country and the free world. Who will be the leader that leads us out of the coming disaster? Someone with the vision and communication skills of Ronald Reagan and the courage of GW Bush (he was not physically afraid to step into things) who will plege life, liberty and sacred honor to right the wrongs in this country? Start praying that we find a strong leader and we find that person soon.

There lies a problem # 10 Obama uses his power the house must use it´s power of the purse strings. Snap them tight shut on the upcoming debt limit. There will be howls from the left so we need a leader who has guts and says I won the power of the purse strings and make it stick. Such a leader would be the hero of a real majority. That is the only way the cry baby can redeem himself now!

It´s more like: "I won, get over it," which is what he said when he rejected the Rep´s cliff proposal this week.

We´ve all seen it coming--even before his frst term: this is an evil dictatorship that may take massive street demonstrations to unseat. It ain´t going to happen on it´s own in 2016.

He does indeed have the biggest ego in town. However, he´s not smart enough to lay off the superiority attitude and snarky demeanor. I don´t think he realizes that D.C. is full of large egos in both parties and if he´s not careful, even his octaroon armor won´t keep him immune to impeachment. The legions of mini-dictators in the beltway will only be pushed so far.

The problem is enough of the Republicans are weak kneed wimps, who are happy to be liberal Democrats lite, and have essentially been going along to get along with the liberal Democrats once they get into the Congress for a very long time. Obama and his crew know that, and have the Republicans number big time.

If Allen West had been nominated by the Republican party for president, and had chosen Paul Ryan as his running mate, West would be challenging 0´s "victory" in the states where the elections were rigged.

The Republicans should nominate a candidate who is eager, willing and able to get down in the dirt and fight Obama like a junkyard dog. Newt has a taste for this sort of fight, as do Allen West and Sarah Palin.

That is correct. No debt ceiling raises just cuts. Start in Feb 2013 with a 17% cut in the debt ceiling. Why 17%? That is the figure cite for the Value Added Tax that is coming. That is the VAT like in Europe. So lets cut the budget by that amount via a cut in the Debt Ceiling.Also we need a budget.A real one that has to cover the last few years. Nothing out of the House until that is done.That requirement will wear well on the population too, They will get it.
The other item is not to patronizethe medai any more. No DVDx, down loads or CDs. Stop buying them. It is one thing we can get at and the content on so much is deplorable.
Just think in your mind did you ever hear of a kid sitting in the basement in the 50´s playing Parcheesi or Dominos and then grabbing a gun?

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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.
