Top 10 Election Bright Spots
Human Events, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/17/2012 6:18:56 AM

1. House still in GOP hands Republicans held onto most of the gains made in the 2010 midterm elections, enabling conservatives to keep Obama from imposing a radical agenda on the nation in his second term. House Speaker John Boehner signaled as much, saying on election night that Americans sent a clear message by keeping the House in GOP hands. “With this vote, the American people have also made clear that there is no mandate for raising tax rates,” Boehner said. 2. Popular vote still close With a 50.5 percent to 48 percent popular vote deficit, Romney outperformed McCain’s percentage

Well, OK - I do need the silver lining. Thanks for trying. I still despair for the home of the free and the land of the brave, however.

No it´s becoming the home of the entitled and the soon-to-be-enslaved.
Now that a crash is inevitable, the only bright spot I can think of is that when they blame the crash on Republicans, it will still have taken place during the term of a Democratic president.

Yes, a very few bright spots, but is better than nothing. And this idea that the youth vote dropped 6% in its support for obama is nothing to celebrate. The article thinks the youth are ´slowly catching on´ to the evil that is obama. But if they haven´t learned the lesson from the past 4 years, then another 4 years isn´t going to matter either. Nice try though.

Note that the list forgets to mention Ted Cruz who was about dead in the water this time last year, but because of a groundswell of tea party and conservative support rose to become a Senator.

These are merely spin stories of a Pyrrhic victory

Lining #2 a mere 50.5 % of the popular vote is what is scaring them. That is why there is a cacophony in unison asking the GOP to compromise its core principlea, enter the group grievances cesspool. This is a game they can beat us handily.

Demographically we are now outnumbered. With inconsistent voting rules and expanding class of selfish and ignorant looters and moochers, the GOP may never win the presidency again. However, a new goal of controlling the House and Senate, along with as many state governorships could make holding the Oval Office irrelevant. Expansion and promoting of the Tea Party may be worth a look as well.

Popular vote still close? Indications of monumental vote fraud across the country would blow that number out of the water. Even more troubling was the electoral massacre -- what, 332-206? -- the left´s vote stealing monster gets bigger the more it devours.

I´m thinking the bright spots are dying embers.

I agree with #10 that Bush may be the last Republican president for many, many years. The idea that the GOP may be left with no alternative but to contend for the House and
Senate is interesting, but, even here, the odds are not in its favor. The real problem is that, over the past five decades, the progressives have successfully managed to infiltrate and overwhelm our society. They "own" our education system, K thru the doctoral thesis; our entertainment industry and its complete rewrite of what is right and wrong; union management everywhere; the main stream media; the great majority of the votes from our welfare society; and most of the local government bureaucracy responsible for managing the polls and counting votes. (Does anyone believe there will be any prosecutions in the Florida county where %141 of the voters turned out and practically everyone voted for Obama?) At present, the GOP does not appear equipped to comprehend, let alone contend with, how our country has evolved. The best it can hope for is to be occasionally allowed to rent a little space in the world of policy making and other governance. Conservatives are up against both a powerful Democrat machine and a Republican Party that has, for too many years, gone along to get along, and it is going to be a long, long time before we might hope to see any light in this current tunnel.

The GOP has a major responsibility in the loss of the Senate. They refused to support in any significant way Scott Brown and gave scant or no support to Mourdock and Akin because of their supposed gaffes that the demns were allowed to blow way out of proportion to the point of lies.

The Tea Party needs to pour on the coals and work out a plank that will not be a single issue and can be accepted by a wide spectrum of voters. Romney and the GOP narrowed the issues that scared independents off the plantation.

Family of Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370´s
Pilot Frustrated Over Continued Suspicion

KUALA LUMPUR—A family member of the captain of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 said the family is frustrated with the suspicion surrounding the pilot´s motives and character. Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, with over 18,000 hours of flying time, commanded Flight 370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 when it disappeared with 239 passengers and crew aboard. Fariq Abdul Hamid was the second officer. Investigators looking into the plane´s disappearance have focused on the pilot, co-pilot and crew members but haven´t ruled out the possibility that one or more passengers were involved, people familiar with the investigation said Friday.

“Truly, this man was the son of God.” Thus speaks a Roman centurion at the end of George Stevens’s inaptly named The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965). It’s a line that always gets a big laugh, partly because the idea of anything so irreligious as Hollywood hokum commenting on the provenance of Jesus Christ is axiomatically funny, but mostly because the centurion is played by John Wayne, a movie star who might have known a son of a gun when he saw one, but who patently knew precious little else. Except, one learns from Scott Eyman’s exhaustive new biography, John

When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century, much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 per cent rise in global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between 1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern. They will see these modest rises as just part of a general warming that began at the start of the 19th century, as the

What the Former Soviet States

With no evidence that Russia has any plans to withdraw its troops from the border of Ukraine, some former Soviet states are worried about their own regional security. Farther east, other countries, closely aligned with Moscow rather than the West, say they are trying to ease tensions. And several central Asian states have responded by simply staying silent. The United States and NATO announced this week that they are boosting military support in the Baltic region, which is on especially high alert. Moscow has long complained about Russians´ rights there, and its takeover of Crimea suggests it may be willing to

Reginald Clarke is someone Obamacare was designed to help. The 55-year-old, who was homeless for a time, now has an apartment in Gardena and a street-cleaning job that pays him $14,000 a year. He hadn´t visited a doctor in four or five years. Then, last fall, his girlfriend told him he would be eligible for Medi-Cal starting Jan. 1. "I was excited. I could go get a physical," he said. "There are a few things I need." But joy turned to exasperation when Clarke´s application, filed in December, was mistakenly rejected — and then seemed to disappear from county and state computer systems. By law,

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

When it comes to Obama-era scandals, the American Right’s predominant emotion is frustration — a frustration that causes hypertension levels usually seen only in Cubs fans and the unfortunates hired to do PR for Lindsay Lohan and Shia LeBoeuf. Liberals dubbed Ronald Reagan the “Teflon president” because they felt nothing ever stuck to him. President Obama is the Scotchguard president; the would-be scandals that ought to be dogging his administration simply seem to bead up into little droplets before they are briskly wiped away. Conservatives will tell you, and rightly so, that this is happening because the mainstream media — the prestige

The Obama administration will start posting proof of their ambassadorial nominees’ competency online in an effort to stanch criticism that their political appointees are not qualified to represent the United States abroad. The change in policy, which was announced by the American Foreign Service Association (AFSA)today, comes months after a slate of confirmation hearings in which nominees appeared to have little understanding of the political and cultural dynamics of the countries to which they were being sent. The string of recent diplomatic gaffes highlighted the decades old practice of presidents rewarding big bucks backers with diplomatic posts. The goofs began when hotelier

As we enter this golden age of tolerance and diversity, the nation’s gay rights community is sending a warning message to Americans: If you don’t support gay marriage, you don’t deserve a job. Apparently, Brendan Eich did not get that message. He’s the former chief executive officer at Mozilla, the technology group that gave us the Firefox Web browser. Eich resigned under a firestorm of controversy after it was revealed he had donated $1,000 in support of California’s Proposition 8, a ballot initiative that protected traditional marriage. It’s unclear who outed Eich. But that really doesn’t matter. Once his donation was revealed, supporters

What do Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia have in common? For one, none has a city larger than 400,000 people. For another, they all voted for John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. For yet another, they are the most likely places for Republicans to pick up Senate seats, thus taking control of the upper chamber, in 2014. These three facts are related. Much ink has been spilled about the “coalition of the ascendant” that the Democrats have formed, which essentially consists of young professionals, nonwhite voters, and gentry liberals.

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged 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.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
