Romney Concedes; Appeals
for End of Partisan Bickering

National Journal, by Alex Roarty

Original Article

Posted By:LOL Thomas, 11/7/2012 1:23:36 AM

Mitt Romney said during his concession speech Tuesday night that he would “pray” for President Obama’s success during his second-term in office, urging all of the politicians of both parties to push aside partisan politics to solve the nation’s problems. "The nation, as you know, is at a critical point,” he said, addressing a subdued crowd of supporters in Boston. “At a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work and we citizens also have to rise to the occasion.”

Sad. So much for huge crowds, enthusiasm, grass roots efforts. So much for Rush, Barone, Rove. Done. Never will listen to them again. Ever.

Bye bye GOP. You've told us to sit down, shut up and go along for the last time. If there is anything left to save in 2016, let's hope a real third party arises out of the ashes of our country, and rids us of the blight that is our elected "representatives".

How pathetic the Romney campaign and repubs have proven to be.

Mr Romney, "reaching across the aisle" (to include steadfast refusal to enforce the border and overhaul immigration policies) is what brought us to this juncture.

Pardon me while I retch across the aisle.

#4 I'm with #1. I feel betrayed by the American people. I am a political junkie and used to love following every tiny political detail. Now I am battle worn and am tired seeing our side kicked in the teeth constantly from the Unions, Democrats, and the Hollywood-media complex (Axis of evil). Its a losing battle as evidenced by tonight's results. The bad guy wins by convincing the low-information voters of our Country that the good guy is the bad guy. Game over.

We've been a bit pessimistic in the wayne household for some time. I suspect that in the next few years we'll leave the left coast for a solid red state and wait for things to take their course. It'll be sad, but what do you do when most of your neighbors are parasites?

Ditto #1 and #8. Doing the same thing over and expecting a different result is madness. By 2016 it will be too late on many levels.

Those of us in the reality based community realize that Rush is an entertainer, not a politician to be taken seriously or deified. Hannity is a shyster, mildly entertaining but rarely fair or truthful. Dear Leader is a bad guy, but he is not some kind of communist plant. He may be a socialist, but we are still a nation of laws and we've got a GOP congress that has prevented Barry from doing any more significant damage since 2010. The long term scenario here is actually good. Markets will realize that Bernanke and his Krugman School of Alchemy is not a stable or long term growth strategy. Commodities will continue to boom because of government imposed scarcity, funny money, and the secular BRIC story. If the economy doesn't improve in the next two years you could see a repeat of 2010, but this time GOP taking the Senate. We need better party leadership. More discipline. Better candidates (sorry Akin and Murdock). It was always a long shot to beat the First Black President and his media. The conservative movement has some growing up to do.

Uh huh - and guess which side will be expected to do all the reaching and bending and compromising. NO THANKS. Frankly our narrow margin of power in the House is the only thing standing between us and a total socialist bulldozer driven by Barry and Harry (Reid). Scary and sad outcome tonight. I do not know what the GOP needs to do next but clearly our course of action in 2008 and 2012 was not effective enough.

The demographics of the country have turned against the Republican Party as it is now constituted, and they are not going to win national elections in the future.

Obama will now call for what amounts to amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens, and to put them on a path to citizenship that is liberal Democrat code for eventually granting them US voting rights. Since the vast majority of the legalized aliens will be poor low wage earners with limited educations, most of them who register to vote will be liberal Democrat voters. If only half of the legalized aliens ever vote they would amount to 10 million or so new liberal Democrat voters. Can you explain how the Republicans will then be able to undo such a huge number of new liberal Democrat voters to be able to win future national elections, there is no way.

Tonight you saw the majority of USA voters essentially cross the Rubicon and there is no coming back.

Romney was gracious and classy in the speech we didn't want to see him give. It's what's expected and he did it well, though you could see the pain out there for sure. The end of partisan bickering? Hardly.

Very good and depressing point, #19. Very true. If that happens CA will be even more down the drain than it already is. It's a bleak night all around.

#19 and several others have posted about demographics - the USA is changing fast and we cannot win national election with only the white vote. Demographics as-is are hurting us. Consider: in 2008 Ohio's vote was 83% white. Tonight it was 79%. In 2016 it will probably be only 75-76%. And so on. Tonight is too soon to have a frank discussion on this subject but we do need to dig into it in the months to come. We need to promote conservative values to a wider group of America, we need a bigger tent, Obama and the Dems have scooped up every group that they can. And they don't intend to give an inch of their base back. We need to work hard for this. Our GOP convention audience in Tampa, did anyone else notice it was almost 100% white people. Our rallies for Romney, were almost 100% white people. That is what has to change or else we are destined to become an opposition party only.

We should concede our failures and move on. The Tea Party proved it can move mountains. Now it needs to decide it's next move. We need to have an organized John Galt movement. If the majority of this country is controlling things then let them start producing. See what happens to this country when food stores start to run low on items.

I'm not sure how a movement like this happens. Clearly, we need a leader. But I can tell you one thing. I will not pay for another movie ever again. And if it weren't for my wife objecting, I would disconnect cable. Why give Hollywood money?

No more big ticket purchases if I can help it. Hunker down.

If some of you mean the Republican Party must pander to each minority group, trying to outdo Democrats? It will not work. Trying to go Dem-lite is killing the party. Second huge problem we have is a GOP establishment that only tolerates conservatives. They assist the MSM to destroy good candidates like Allen West, Michelle Bachmann, etc. Until these deep problems are dealt with, we will lose.

Hubby is profoundly depressed and feels everything he has ever worked for and supported has been undermined by a brain-dead population of voters who know nothing more than pop culture and are too stupid to recognize this progressive communist take over.

3:13 am. Should be sleeping because I have another tough work day ahead of me. Like all days, I'll get up, do that work the very best I can. The difference is that , after tonight's rotten outcome, I will start tomorrow with the idea that I will withhold every penny I can. I will do my very best to deny the takers. I will be more vocal about being paid in cash and offer a discount for cash. I'll pay people , who provide me with work I need done, with cash. My few dollars withheld will not starve out the takers but, perhaps combined with the few dollars from a million or so of us, will start to do damage. If I can NOT pay for one Obama phone , it will be something to make me smile a little. I'll hand over as little as possible. The takers , get from Gov, which has no money except ours. Deny them as much as possible. The 'alto ATM' is shutting down.

I was proud to stand with Mitt Romney and I know his heart breaks for this great country. He and his family don't have to worry about their future when it comes to everyday living but ours have to.

The victory last night was for the underclass of America. That is exactly why Obama let all those illegal immigrant students stay. That is why he ran a divisive campaign and early on defined Mitt Romney as an evil rich guy with no retort coming from the Romney side here in Ohio.

Romney was right for the times and gave a good fight right to the very end. He should not be blamed. The low info voters, the knee-pad media, the changing demographics of our new welfare state, the horrendous untrue attacks on Romney, etc. are what did it.

The numbers are very confusing. Supposedly, the Independents were breaking 59% for Romney. Huh? We were told that was the deal breaker. We were told Republicans would cast more votes than Democrats this year. Remember 2010? Well, if so, the numbers just don't add up. IMO, the bottom line is ballot boxes were stuffed in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, PA, VA and FL and probably more states. Email voting in NY & NJ? I'm sure there was no voter fraud involved there, right? The fix was in.

Morsy ouster brings $8 billion
aid package to Egypt

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.

There were few complaints at the Woodruff polls as South Carolina´s new voter photo ID requirement was enforced for the first time in Spartanburg County. The re-do election for mayor in Woodruff is the first Spartanburg County election since the photo ID requirement went into effect Jan. 1. The law requires voters to show a S.C. driver´s license, Department of Motor Vehicles ID card, voter registration card with photo, federal military ID or a United States passport to cast a ballot. (Snip) The law was passed in 2012 as a measure to combat voter fraud, according to proponents.

Why the ‘threat’ on

To the world beyond the Beltway, it might not mean much that Bob Woodward of the famed Watergate duo went public with his recent White House run-in. This would be an oversight. (Snip) Distrust of media, encouraged by alternative media seeking to enhance their own standing, has become a tool useful to the very powers the Fourth Estate was constitutionally endowed to monitor. When the president can bypass reporters to reach the public, it is not far-fetched to imagine a time — perhaps now? — when the state controls the message.

Moving Sequester Goal Posts

There are two stories circulating around Bob Woodward this morning. (Snip) But the White House also wanted the issue to disappear until after the election, so in conjunction with Congress it proposed (and the President specifically endorsed) an enforcement mechanism called sequestration. In exchange for agreeing to a package of $1.2T in cuts with no revenues as a failsafe, Republicans agreed to raise the debt limit high enough that it would not be reached until after the election. The significant point is that the trigger for sequestration was not the same date as the implementation date.

After Thursday´s Wall Street drama -- in which a media blitz orchestrated by hedge fund billionaire David Einhorn got a rise out of Apple (AAPL) management and a pop in the stock price -- I have a few thoughts about what´s going on. (Snip) Einhorn is lobbying ordinary investors to vote against transparency and shareholder rights! Second, the more I look at Einhorn´s preferred stock option, the less I like it. To get a feel for its complexity and the effect it might have on the value of Apple´s common stock, I encourage you to read through the e-mail exchange

The following information was provided to me by my DHS contact on two different occasions. I was asked to withhold the final portion of the information that was provided to me at that time until after the inauguration. (Snip) RB: First of all, two days after the inauguration, at exactly 7:00 a.m. on January 23, something called “the Cyber-Warriors for Obama Project” was activated. I heard about this the week after the election, but only saw a hardcopy draft in late December. From what I was told, I believe this is a project that is being paid

Yesterday I published the following story:  Breaking: Obama DOJ Green Lights Drone Strikes Against Americans (Snip) Thousands of drone strikes have been initiated by the Obama White House via his now infamous “Kill List” where it is said, the president personally reviews the names and related information of those who wants assassinated via a drone attack.  While that scenario alone should be enough to create outrage among the Mainstream Media and Barack Obama’s liberal/progressive supporters, the actual scenario is much-much worse.  What yesterday’s story outlines is an administration that has given itself the authority to bomb American citizens

Stand by the Double Robotics booth at the Macworld trade show, and you hear the same thing over and over again as people walk by: "I would never have to leave the house again." Or: "I would never have to go to the office again." That´s the reaction to the Double, a remote-controlled robot stand that will be available this spring for $2,000. (Snip) Insert an iPad on top of the Double and download the company's app on that iPad and another iOS device. Use the second iOS device to steer the Double from miles away. The robot uses sensors and gyroscopes (much like the Segway) to stay balanced.

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze gave some ambiguous and potentially dangerous self defense advice Friday on “Hardball.” Glaze, speaking in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws, said in a circumstance where someone “comes at you” with an axe handle one should attempt to either “talk,” “fight with your fists,” “run away,” or “deescalate the situation,” but not shoot the attacker: MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an ax handle. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the ax handle armed or not?

[Video] Rapper Jay Z appearing on HBO´s "Real Time" with Bill Maher says that the black community wants upward economic mobility rather than a stronger police presence. In a conversation with former Congressman Barney Frank about police tactics such as stop-and-frisk, Jay Z suggests the stagnant economy and wealth inequality could cause widespread social unrest: "The real problem is there´s no middle class, right? So the gap between the have and have-nots is getting wider and wider... It´s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve, because once you have that sort of oppression

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

Not only should President Obama cancel a bilateral summit with "schoolyard bully" Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation," but considering the country granted asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. allies should try to move next month´s G-20 gathering from St. Petersburg. "President Putin´s behaving like a schoolyard bully, and in my experience, I´ve learned, unless you stand up to that bully, they ask for more and more and more," Schumer said. "He´s always going out of his way, President Putin is, to seem to poke us in

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

An odd dark vertical line that was observed in the sky over Florida earlier this week has left meteorologists puzzled. The shadowy apparition was spotted and photographed by Mike Weight at Honeymoon Island State Park near Dunedin, Florida, Wednesday. Weight was walking on the beach at around 12.30pm. The day was bright and sunny, but there were thunderheads forming to the east. ‘I was looking North when I observed what looked like a ray of dark light coming down from a small cloud to the surface of the Gulf about a half-mile away,’ the 73-year-old man wrote in an email

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
