Question for the victor:
How far do you push

New York Times, by Peter Baker

Original Article

Posted By:MinnesotaWild(man), 11/7/2012 7:15:44 AM

For President Obama, now comes a second chance. An electorate that considers the country to be on the wrong track nonetheless agreed to renew his contract in hopes that the next four years will be better than the last. A weary but triumphant president took the stage in Chicago early Wednesday morning before a jubilant crowd, clearly relieved to have survived a challenge that threatened to end his storybook political career. While he was speaking of America, he could have been talking about himself when he told the audience: “We have picked ourselves up. We have fought our way back.”

Comments:
Surprisingly fairly balanced analysis. Not even the NYT says he has a mandate.

Tell me again why anyone thinks Barky cares whether he has a mandate or not. We're talking about a guy who thinks he's had one since the moment he was born. We're just not smart enough to realize it.

He has never had a mandate. That doesn't stop him from pushing socialism and fascism down our throats. I fear for my children and their lack of a future. And I am thoroughly ashamed of this country.

How far does he push? All the way.

The America of our Founding Fathers died last night.

55 million people inexplicably voted to reelect a demagogue and unabashed ideologue, with a four year record of radicalism, over a pragmatist and good man. So, Obama will continue to steer the Ship of State toward socialism, and I don't see anything that would cause him to reverse course. He will have four more years to transform America: four more years to trash our economy in the name of fairness; four more years to weaken our military; four more years to make us even more irrelevant in a dangerous world; and four more years to ensure that Republicans never regain the White House. Democracy survived Obama's first term; I don't believe it will survive a second.

Yes, Republicans kept the House. So what? An honorable president would be checked by a House held by the opposition. Obama has shown he is not an honorable man, and he will not be bound by that hoary Constitutional concept of "checks and balances."

If it's as bad as I think it will be, millions will regret their vote, and our children and their children will curse us for what happened last night. And it won't take long: wait until Obamacare really kicks in; wait until people finally begin to realize that a high unemployment rate and anemic economy are natural consequences of Obama's vision; wait until they finally notice drastically deteriorating race relations.

An aside: I am laying down my satirist's pen. Humor involving this man, his administration, and his Party is now, in my view, misplaced. There is nothing to laugh at any more.

#3- Without humor, we have nothing left. Without people to use humor against the corrupt, we have no weapon. Without humor to inform low information voters, how do you reach them, and sway them?

Grieve today, Sagman. We understand. However, I am a momma grizzly, and will be damned if I give up on my children or grandchildren.

Game on. Breitbart lives.

sagman is right. 0bama is going to push all the way, because there will be nothing to stand in his way. See the article posted just below this one from American Thinker today, "Obama's Second Term". Each of us will have to decide how we will prepare and face what's coming.

Most of Obama's policies were intentionally back loaded into 2013 and 2014. Be prepared to tell ignorant Obama voters and those who sat out this election "I told you so" a lot in the coming years when they complain about rising costs, poor health care services and no jobs.

#3 I couldn't agree more. If we had only followed the Constitution, Obama would not have happened. Now there is a precedent of ignoring the eligibility clause of the Constitution. Next time the Republicans should nominate Bibi Netanyahu. He comes closer to being an American than Obama.

As bad as what happened last night was, and what it portends for our future, I must repectfully disagree with our Sagman. The America of our Founding Fathers died in April, 1865. It's just that none of us were around then to realize it.

Even liberals are realizing that the Kenyan now owns it all. No more blaming Bush, and this is only going to get FAR worse. Trillions in debt with more required to feed the socialist beast the bleeding heart liberals created some 75 years ago. Today the #1 industry in this country is government, the looters, and they can only exist on the backs of taxpayers and massive foreign borrowing.
Look for the "buyer's remorse" to kick in when the producers see their taxes increase by 20%, their healthcare quality decline, and their kids can't find meaningful jobs.

"....most voters just seemed to want him to make it function."

They want more free stuff.

“But if the price of peace in Washington” means slashing student aid, reversing his health care program or cutting people from Medicaid, he added, “that’s not a price I’ll pay.”

Obama will provide more free stuff.

How will he blame the rich if he can't provide the free stuff because at a given point in time, the bills do have to be paid.

Sagman, I see this more as an unfinished script. The plot twist that initiates the final chase scene has just occurred. The antagonist has diabolically outwitted the good guys and emerged seemingly in control. The good guys seem leaderless and in the depths of despair.

But wait...when all hope seems gone, when evil seems to have triumphed, what is that in the distance?

It's us, Sagman. WE will write the final act of this unfinished thriller.

Republicans have nothing more to lose, so I fully expect Impeachment hearings to begin for the Butcher of Benghazi and his assistants in crime. We OWE that much to the families, and to our brave military who are at the mercy of the Butcher.
Obamacare has signed my death warrant, along with millions of others. There is no hope.

What happens when the money for the free stuff runs out, and there is no one and nothing left to tax? No, he has nothing to lose now, and soon the useful idiots with their free phones will be like the victims of Sandy, calling out to the rest of us for help.

The only difference will be, they brought it on themselves. Do you honestly think the money won't run out? When it does, why should he care? He got what he wanted, and like a bad date, will kick all his virgins to the curb.

The one part of the story he left out is your first time is usually a mistake.

Didn't you just love Obama's promise to "work with" the other side (i.e., the Republicans)? Of course, as we know by now, his definition of "working with" is "me talk, you listen and obey to the letter."

Obama only cares about himself. He will reward those who voted for him and punish those who did not. That is how a Marxist operates. We will all become enemies of the state.

You think politcial correctness is bad now? We haen't seen anything yet.

Read in today's mini Washington Post papor they hand out to commuters that a majority of voters stll blamed George W Bush for the poor economy and that 95% of blacks say federal govenrment should provide jobs (per NAACP poll).

And if CHristie thinks he has a chance in 2016 - fat chance (pun intended). Bill Clinton wasn't just campaigning for Obama buy Hillary in 2016 - that's assuming Obama decides to leave office then.

Yes there is hope.

It's time to take a deep breath and develop a better plan for moving forward. The first step will be to jettison the northeastern liberal RINO block. They have done nothing for our nation other than to enjoy the years as the faithful minority party that enjoyed playing second fiddle. They gave us Bob Dole, not Ronald Reagan. Then John McCain. And they thought they were doing that with Mitt Romney. Too bad we didn't realize until the first debate that Romney really knew what he was talking about.

The old view of not defending yourself against lies and more lies just doesn't cut it in today's world. It's a shame we have a nation of 50% that vote for a man because of his skin color and because he appeals to their narrow desire for what they think will benefit them in the short run.

We will need a big picture guy with real vision, not someone to argue about fine tuning laws in place.

Now is the time to really get tough in the House and refuse to negotiate with the moron elect. He does not know how to negotiate. Perhaps it is time for Boehner to step aside and let someone Obama hates with a passion, like Eric Cantor, lead the negotiation. We must not allow Obama to decide who the Republican leaders are.

Plan for increasing the majority in the House in 2014. Develop a plan and candidates to take the Senate.

Along the way we must learn from the Democrats and support our candidates. The Republican leadership squandered two Senate seats that could have been won. Stupid mistakes that will last for six years.

Ashamed that so many people are on food stamps ashamed that my career ended becuase im a white male over 50, and Obamacare drove my former employer to lay off 10,000 nationwide. Honesty and integrity are devalued. Grifting , graft and glomming onto the govt t*t are all that matter. This is atravesty of unimaginalbe proportion. Wen the dollar is finally worthless and society has collapsed under Øbammunism, i will say " I told you so." Glad some LDotters are optimistic. You're beter people than i am. God bless you, all.

I have been a lurker on this web site since the late 1990s. Ever since, I have started every day by coming to this site and reading the decent,intelligent,insightful, and witty comments. This morning I was in tears, and I have never cried after an election in my life. I cannot tell all of you how much it means to me to have a forum of like-minded people with whom I can share my sorrow and despair. I honestly don't know how to go on from here, but I can tell you one thing: I will never give up. I will never give in to this socialist poison and will go to my death fighting it tooth and nail. We are the producers and they need us to stay alive. We have our ways. God (with whom I am really angry right now) bless you all, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was in the dumps for about eight hours. But realize two things: (1) this is MY country too. I fought for it, I pay for it, I love it (unlike Mr. Revenge), and I am damn sure not turning it over in despair. (2) this was an election. There will be another one in two years, and another one after that. Things will definitely get worse in the near future. But Margaret Thatcher faced worse. Any damage done by man (or Obama) can be undone. It will be harder, and more expensive. But the only way we lose is to quit the field. "Going Galt" is an escapist fantasy, not a policy.

Regarding the specific subject of the thread--with all due respect to Sag, and his indescribably accurate assessment, I think posts 1 and 2 said it all, coulda just as well closed the thread right there--well, at least until post #9. Regarding the broader issue--well, I'm tired too, haven't read the analyses and post-mortems, don't know if I will. But just from what i saw last night, I can't shake the profoundly disgusting feeling that we have been saddled with 4 more years of national degradation by women in a few Middle American states whose primary motivation in life is apparently to keep the "casual" in "casual sex".

Obama isn't a real president. He isn't even a real politician. He is merely a successful candidate who wins, then hits the links while Valerie and the rest if the Marxist cabal run things. Mandate shmandate. They could care less. They do things by fiat, and even get held in contempt by Clinton appointed judges. WASF.

Sagman, take a break for a few hours and get your fanny back in the game when the sun comes up tomorrow. We need your pungent humor, and we need fit badly.

Have to have something to help us Americans bear the unbearable.

We can all take pride in the fact that this salon started the discussion about Socialism that America needed to have.
That the Obamunists won this election does not take away our validity.
The karmatic hubristic-shooting Gods including that Distant Deadly Archer that have ruled the Universe since the beginning of time are only setting Obama and Co. up for a spectacular takedown.

Solzhenitsyn's 'Pitiless Crowbar of Human Events' is waiting around the corner for this caricature of a President.

We can fight on, and will. 'Never give a inch'.
'Mon back, Sagman.

The Republicans need to master the art of rigging elections as the Dems have.

Seriously, Republicans do not split their tickets and vote for a Republican House candidate and a Dem president.

The House needs to stand their/our ground and defund any and all of Obama's activities which fall outside the Constitution, including gutting our military.

The House should begin a "have no mercy and take no prisoners" investigation of the Benghazi terror attack murders. I want to see military leaders testify that they were not ordered to defend Americans in Benghazi, or they were told to stand down when they informed the white house they were asked to defend. Compare the Benghazi murders to Watergate. I rest my case.

The President knows only one path, Government Control. The full extent is going to be exposed quickly. Industry will need to spend $800 billion just to keep their current plants open. GM and Chrysler are doing their next expansions in China. Taxes on the wealthy won't come close to providing needed revenue so its time to break out the carbon tax. ICE is letting illegals stay, so they need some middle class white guys to give up their jobs to help the dreamers succeed.

Obama will push his garbage as far as he can until Texas gets mad enough to vote yes to secede from the US. If the people of Texas are strong enough to accomplish that Obama and his Junta will be toast and America will begin to heal.

No this is not funny. The election was stolen. And it was stolen with the help of Republican involvement. The Republican establishment along with the Democrats stole this election for Obama. The Bush dynasty is still alive thanks to Karl Rove et al. If Romney wins, the Bush's are gone forever. Now they are back(see Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama)and (Chris Christy's stabs). Look at our quiet congress. Low turnout you say..no way. The numbers do not add up. A true conservative will never be elected President again.

You are correct, #44. We have surpassed that happy balance where there are now more takers than producers. All the next democrat idiot has to do to get elected is to promise more and better handouts and keep the freebies flowing. The only fix is a producers' revolt to starve the leeches out.

I just can't do it. I can't bear to continue my daily ritual of immersing myself in the news on this wonderful site and the many others I visit to get a decent picture of what's going on. And you can't write political satire unless you immmerse yourself in politics.

Anything can change, but at this time my heart isn't in it anymore--by ''it'' I mean keeping up with current events in order to satirize the players. I don't think I'd call it giving up or giving in. I still care, but whatever spark I had that often had me up at 3 a.m. writing something to skewer Zero appears extinguished.

So thank you all, Lucianne particularly, for all the support and encouragement over the last five years. It was a good run and it's been an honor to have been part of this community. I am signing off.

All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke.

Please, do not let the earth's last, best hope for democracy die because evil people like Soros have found a charming deceiver like Obama to start killing off the free world's champion, the United States of America.

Instead, resist the socialist tyrants. Band together and fight back, not with weapons but with new ways to reach out to those who WILL not see because they have been lulled to sleep with siren-song of a nanny government. Breitbart has shown the way. Start by neutering Barack's accomplices in the mainstream media. Bankrupt & destroy them so they no longer have any credibility. Support new media. Support the TEA party, fight back every libellous claim creatively and with class. There are many TEA party sympathizers now and more will come as realization dawns on voters that they have reelected Valerie Jarrett, a first class screwed up lady, as acting President of the US.

I don't want the names of Ron Paul, Alex Jones, or Gary Johnson ever mentioned in my presence again.

Ron Paul had some stupid young people votes, and he refused to support the party that he used when it was convenient for him. Alex Jones' negativity equated 0bama and Romney...stupid! Gary Johnson I guess just tried to run as an alternative. Nothing wrong with that.

The first thing I do every day is visit this site. I seldom post, but browse everything. I feel you Sagman and thank you for all you have done. I am tired too. Hey, they Voted for this stuff on their own free will. I don't get it and am very dissapointed. But maybe this thing has to run its course. The pain of this disease/experiment hasn't really hit yet, but it will. Romney would have never had a chance to do anything with the media we have anyhow. Nothing but pain, suffering and bloodshed will ever lead to a true conservative government, and it may not even happen then. They made one huge mistake in the design and that is term limits. Nobody is going to go down there and suggest term limits, but until that happens it will be more of the same. Our whole economy is unsustainable and we are headed for trouble. probably in my lifetime as I am only 51. Bengazi and f&f are jokes, nothing will ever happen there either. I am taking a break from politics as every single issue I believe in never ever works out. I am tired of losing on each and every issue. I still believe in the right stuff, its just that the majority of the country doesn't. I wish the best for us but have my doubts.

No one else is going to tell you this, so I might as well. You sit here today, $30,000 or $40,000 in debt, as the latest victims of what may well be the biggest conspiracy in U.S. history. It is a conspiracy so big and powerful that Dan Brown won’t even touch it. It’s a conspiracy so insidious that you will rarely hear its name. Move over, Illuminati. Stand down, Wall Street. Area 51? Pah. It’s nothing. The biggest conspiracy of all? The College-Industrial Complex.

For President Obama, now comes a second chance. An electorate that considers the country to be on the wrong track nonetheless agreed to renew his contract in hopes that the next four years will be better than the last. A weary but triumphant president took the stage in Chicago early Wednesday morning before a jubilant crowd, clearly relieved to have survived a challenge that threatened to end his storybook political career. While he was speaking of America, he could have been talking about himself when he told the audience: “We have picked ourselves up. We have fought our way back.”

Chris Christie says he didn't snub Mitt

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday slammed the “know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers” who in a Huffington Post story on Monday accused him of snubbing Mitt Romney by skipping Sunday’s rally in Pennsylvania. Christie, a vocal backer of Romney, said during a press conference that he told the Republican presidential nominee before Hurricane Sandy hit that he would likely be unavailable for the rest of the campaign. “I said to him, ‘Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think it’s going to, I’m off the campaign trail from here to Election Day,’ ” Christie recalled.

Bachmann appears
poised to win re-election

GOP firebrand Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared to be squeaking out a victory over DFL businessman Jim Graves in a race that is so close it could be heading for a recount. Early Wednesday, the Associated Press called the race for Bachmann, after she led by slightly more than 1 percentage point with 98 percent of the precincts reporting. That margin would put the race outside the range for an automatic recount, but Graves could still seek and pay for one. "It looks very much like it'll be a recount," Graves told supporters in St. Cloud early Wednesday, hours before Bachmann's lead widened from

As the presidential race tightens across the country, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found that it is narrowing here as well, with President Obama holding a 3-point lead and Republican Mitt Romney making gains in the state. The poll shows Obama with support from 47 percent of likely voters and Romney earning backing from 44 percent -- a lead within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Last month, Obama had an 8-percentage point advantage in the Minnesota Poll. Romney has apparently cut into the Democrat's advantage among women since then

TO OAKLAND University, Michigan (home of the Grizzlies), for a rally tonight starring Paul Ryan, the Republican vice-presidential nominee. There is a certain eccentricity to a Ryan rally, some of it carefully crafted, some of it spontaneous. The crafted stuff includes Mr Ryan's MidWestern-guy talk of hunting and football, and the exceedingly loud blast of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" to which he enters the room.

The Most Un-American Speech

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
