Why Obama Won — and
What Conservatives Must Do

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/7/2012 12:11:44 PM

There are no ways to get around the facts. For Republicans and conservatives and independents who wanted a new direction for our country, the victory of President Obama is sad — and for many of us, unexpected. (Snip) First, the Obama campaign’s decision to frighten women worked. Republicans did not wage a campaign on social issues, but the Obama team ran commercials in all the major swing states emphasizing how Romney would try to outlaw contraception and prohibit their right to choose abortion if they felt there was no alternative, and that half the population

How can the message of killing babies and stealing from workers to give to free loaders win an election?

What "we" as concerned Americans (not republicans) need to do is STOP listening to everyone who tells us what we must do now to regain our country back. Only way to get it back is to just take it by whatever means!

Now what are those on the left gonna do to reach out to us?

There is nothing to do. We have lost, and for all time. If the Republicans could not beat an incompetent empty-suit racist that hates America and white people like Obama - game over. I have gone Galt - and I'm going to do my best to convince my wife to retire early and move to another country. I will be damned if I'll work to pay for other people who hate me and just do drugs and party with the money.

Teddy Kennedy's (D-Chivas Regal) immigration policy has succeeded and the demographics of this country, along with the propaganda organ of the Politburo, will see to it that no freedom-loving candidates are ever elected again.

The United States is dead, and we allowed it to happen on our watch.

I cannot properly express the disgust and outrage and sorrow I am feeling as I type these words.

It's over.

We lost on ideals. The majority does not want personal or financial responsibility. They want government handouts, and the want the 'rich' (someone else) to pay for them.

We are living in a very selfish generation.

Demographics = destiny. People like me were simply unaware we had already reached the tipping point a couple years ago. The demographic changes include the exploding number of Balkanized minorities who are rapidly on their way to majority status. Additionally, more women are now single than married. This has NEVER been the case before in the US. In other words, there are lots of struggling single females and many are head of household. Add to that the monstrous (and growing) amount of people on federal assistance and you finally overpower the cadre of Ozzie and Harriet-style working people, investors, and business leaders. Also one in five Americans now claim atheism, agnosticism, or simply are not religious. That's a big change. It's that way in Europe - a very secular society. We are headed that way as well: empty churches, no local cohesion, no religious identity. I'm not saying it's good or bad, it just is.

The GOP message of fiscal responsibility simply doesn't resonate. You can't get people excited about being on a budget when they've been living well beyond their means. In addition, the GOP has to drag along all the little old church ladies, evangelical preachers, and moral busybodies who think it's government's job to cow people into good behavior as they define it. In the end, the GOP comes out of the gate like wacky religious scolds and xenophobic haters of gays, blacks, Latinos, immigrants, etc.

When the GOP does manage to get elected, they immediately crab walk away from critical fiscal and security issues, and tackle legislation like Remember the Confederacy Day, no drinking on Sundays, and Let's All Kick a Homo Week.

Evolve or die.

Romney ran ran a decent and honorable campaign on the pressing issues. He did it about as right as it was possible in the political climate of the 21st century.

The blame rests not with him but with us - with what the average American today is willing to think and do. Handouts to those who won't work, deviant behavior approved by the electorate - in referenda in two (northeast) states - coverup and lies passing as campaign strategy with a complicit press.

We have become decadent Rome and will soon morph into present day Greece.

we have met the enemy and it is us.

If Republicans and Conservatives believed in lying constantly and utilizing voter fraud to win, the end result of last night would be different.

We, who listened, heard lie after lie from the mouths of the Democrat talking heads and from the MSM/LSM. Their actions will have a blowback one of these days. If conservatives and Republicans will be devastated by the LIAR in Chief and his unelected Czars so will the mindless democRATS!

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

? Alexis de Tocqueville

Our society will dance, laugh, and urinate away the last of our national wealth. We will soon forget how to extract energy resources from the Earth or build an airplane. When we are beset from outide and inside by the forces of Islam, we will beg for a dictator to save us as we begged for DHS and TSA after 9/11.

While Radosh's points have merit, the GOP is not longer the vehicle to carry the message. We must throw off the 'party of the rich' albatross and start a new party - sans them. There was nothing wrong with our message, it was never effectively delivered. The GOP Establishment will never effectively deliver it. Better to have a minority party with conviction for a while than to be a "me too" big-tent party that will never again hold the majority. I'm with Ldotters who suggest that the Pubs in the house "vote present", stand aside, and let the Dems take full responsibility for what is to come. Better yet, let the true conservatives in both partes form the core of a new party that genuinely represents the middle-class. Let NerØbama's agenda go forward unfettered. Time to boil the frog and hope it jumps out. There are no good options left.

Conservatives must win this with Benghazigate, and with investigation of the excessive spending by the white house and state department.

The House should put the white house and the state department on the same budget that working Americans are on -- hot dogs, NOT wagu beef.

Let's not repeat the mistake of serving up the runner up from this year's election in 2016. Rick Santorum is a good guy and good conservative but could not be elected now, let alone in 2016. Let's go with new blood like Rubio or Jindal, or someone else. Time to clean house and that should also include Boehner and McConnell. We need new leaders.

The Republicans did well in 2010 because it was the grassroots that fought the left. There was no standard bearer. As soon as a standard bearer was required the Beltway stepped in and foisted one on us who had no connection with the grassroots. Decent man, fought hard and well but you cannot beat the appeal of 'free phones' without any emotional connections to the rank and file. By deliberately severing and denying Tea Party connections the Republican Establishment handed the re-election to 0bama.
Come 2014 Tea Paryt driven Republicans will once more do extremely well, a repeat of 2010. They have to guard that 2016 does not become a repeat of this year.

We need to drop the strident social conservative part of the platform that was hung around Romney's neck. The rape comments by the losers Akin and Mourdok did major damage. Those were two winnable seats.

I disagree with articles of this slant. The USA is changing before your eyes and you are blind to it. If Romney wanted to WIN AN ELECTION, he should not have chosen a brilliant white man as his running mate, because that is who HE is. He should have chosen someone who would have appealed to a different segment of the population, be it women, minorities, Hispanics, whoever. I think Paul Ryan is an excellent Congressman and a good man, but he brought few votes to Romney, and they did not even win Ryan's own state. If THAT doesn't tell you something, then as I stated, you are blind to what is happening in the U>S> If Mr Romney had chosen a black or Hispanic woman as his VP, then right now he would be President Romney. Its as simple as that.

So, the way forward for the GOP is to abandon conservatives and founding principles and become socialists. Got it.
Choosing a candidate based on their “electability” might sometimes be a winning strategy. This time it wasn’t. Romney earned fewer votes than McCain.

It is too late to save the nation from the course it chose 8 decades ago. People look at this election as a major turning point (and it is, in a way) but the road to socialism begun with Wilson and FDR was already finished with the Great Society. This election was not going to change that regardless of who won, only the speed at which the payment will come due. Romney’s plans were NOT going to save the nation from socialism.

The comments here are indicative of that fact. Throw out conservatives and founding principles – we can’t win with that message. Really? If the GOP refuses to accept the mantle of founding principles and limited government, it no longer serves any purpose. There is no going back at this point because the electorate has flatly rejected what is necessary to make this nation solvent. Believe it or not, some of those things involve social issues. Do you really think the government can subsidize 2 million abortions a year for free? Akin and Murdoch were poor candidates, but the election results indicate these seats were probably lost regardless.

As for me and my house, we will continue to fight for principles of freedom and personal responsibility – even if we do it alone.

I'm not sure I agree with #25 because I don't think identity politics is the way to go (and it usually doesn't work--neither Sarah Palin nor Geraldine Ferraro brought in the women's vote). I do think it might have been smarter to pick an evangelical Christian from a swing state--if he could have found one. But hindsight is 20-20. It's time to look forward, not back.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy.

The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte.

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'

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

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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.

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?

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.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
