Let’s Not Panic Over Romney’s Defeat
American Spectator, by William Tucker

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/21/2012 6:15:04 AM

I know most people would like to forget about the election, but as someone who supported Mitt Romney throughout the primary campaign -- taking a lot of flak from Spectator readers in the process -- I would like to defend his effort and make a few comments about the future of the Republican Party. First of all, Romney ran a damned good race. He was up in the polls by as much as 7 points (Gallup) going into the last week. Where he got sandbagged was Hurricane Sandy. The storm captured the nation´s attention

"he got sandbagged was Hurricane Sandy"

That´s absurd. He got sandbagged by massive and multi-pronged election fraud.

Aside from the 100.00% sweeps in Dem areas, van loads of blacks showing up to vote where none live, and 140% turnout of registered voters, the voting machines were just gamed for the Dem win. At my voting location and everyone I talk to, lines were out the door. Massive turnout. But at the end, the official numbers are that 12 million fewer people voted for POTUS than 4 years ago. My guess is that maybe 20 million votes were discarded, probably all of them for Romney.

Add to #1. Obvious solution/redress is who? Eric Holder. Never mind. And that is why the RNC is dead in the water.

I agree,the republican hand wringing needs to stop.This whole movement of being liberal lite needs to stop also.Our biggest problem is Obama´s open borders policy which is in direct violation of the law.There needs to be lawsuits brought against them for recruiting foreigners with welfare welcome kits.

If you delete the votes cast for Obama because Romney was white, Romney would win big time. Obama isn´t really president to the majority of the people who work in the private sector and are paying the freight for this circus.

Let´s end all this hindsight. Face it, it´s all over. Romney was beaten by being what he was, a flip-flopper. He was also beaten by the 47 percent running around with Obamaphones. He was beaten by 8.5 million "disabled". He was beaten by god knows how many food stamp users.
Cain had a chance until somebody assassinated him (hmmmmmm, I wonder who???). The republicrats consistently ran machine politicians except where the tea party candidate was able to beat the republicrat candidates. Dare I say that the difference between republican and democrat is infinitesimal. Well folks, we finally did it, we ended the greatest experiment in human history. The republic is no more. The Constitution is a bath mat. The lunatics run the asylum. Welcome to the USSA. I hope you like it here ´cause this is all that´s left. Stop talking about this in get into the handout line like a good little American. Oh, and drop your pants for the TSA cavity check.

I am far from "panicked" or however you spell it....but I do wonder why we are no longer seeing pictures of Obama touring the Storm sites. What is he doing ? And what is Romney doing ?

If Romney wants to "prove" his worthiness then I would expect to see him helping out even in defeat. The GOP needs to know what sells and not just quit because we lost.

Do the right things and stick to the message. Win or lose. If this is truly the right course people will see it eventually.

Mitt needs to be organizing food deliveries and soliciting funds. Is he , or were we looking at a false front ?

All politics is local. 30 of 50 states are either controlled by a Republican governor or GOP-controlled state houses. All the states that matter to me (OK-TX-KY) are solidly RED.

Save for some college towns and liberal outposts here and there Middle America did NOT vote for Øbama and will never embrace the shame of relief and assistance.

Build on what we have. Redouble the effort to reach out to Hispanics with a clear, concise message about free enterprise and social conservatism (the Libre Initiative is working on this right now)

All this handwringing is to convince itself that the Republican "brand" is not "conservative". The Republican election pros insist the dogs won´t eat the conservative food, and thus refuse to feed them any as proof.

Sorry, but this nation, and the Republican Party as a viable second party, both died on 11-6-2012.

As soon as NØbama gets 20,000,000+ illegal aliens instant citizenship, and they all register as Demon-RAT voters to thank their beloved President NØbama, BAM, there won´t be a single red state left in this union.

We instantly go from 50% of all US citizens on some sort of government assistance to 75% of all US citizens getting cool ´´free stuff´´ (or should I say ´´liberte material´´ for all those 20,000,000+ new citizens who probably won´t bother to learn English) from their beloved Demon-RAT representatives.

The 25% of us that are left that still believe in hard work, liberty and freedom, are going to be a quckly extinct breed.

We needed to panic in 2008 and work like there was no tomorrow in 2012 if we didn´t. Well, we didn´t. Evil won, and we are through. 236 years was a good run...

While I don´t share quite the level of pessimism with #15, he makes a valid point. I am quite tired of hearing:

*-Voter fraud cost the election
*-Romney was a bad candidate, or ran a bad campaign.
*-Conservatives stayed home and didn´t vote
*-Obama used technology and got his word out better

None of these are true, and yes, we sound like a bunch of liberals looking for a convenient answer.

The real answer is the simple one--the takers outnumber the producers, and you are not going to win their votes over, EVER.

Do I know the future? No, I don´t. But now IS the time to panic. No IS the time to start yelling at your neighbor. Now IS the time, in your social, and work life, to start digging a little deeper into people you know and work with.

They want divisiveness? Why don´t we show them some. Dump your cute girlfriend who believes in abortion and free birth control. She´s not that cute. Seek out vendors that share your values, even if it takes a little bit longer to get to know them. And when you are handing out good advise, business ideas, or just being neighborly, maybe think twice who you are associating with. Here´s a shocker, maybe, just maybe, exclusion isn´t a bad thing, it´s actually a good thing.

Sorry, this last election changed me. I cannot be friends or associates with anyone who voted to ruin this country.

What Tucker doesn´t mention is that, since three Supreme Court justices are over 80, they probably will be replaced under Obama II, by hard-left anti-Constitutionalists.
Time to panic now, Bill?

The Washington Post Corrects, Disingenuously

On March 20, the Washington Post published an article by Steven Mufson and Julie Eilperin, the import of which was that Koch Industries is the driving force behind the Keystone Pipeline. The article, based entirely on a six-month-old report by a far-left group called the International Forum on Globalization that I demolished last October, was headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The piece’s point was summarized succinctly in a quote by a spokesman for IFG: “IFG’s intention is to demonstrate the Koch-Keystone connection.” I critiqued the Post story

The April 29th deadline has not yet been reached, but it may be said with confidence that the initiative by Secretary of State John Kerry to revive the ‘peace process’ between Israelis and Palestinians has already reached its final destination: failure. The failure of this initiative was obvious from the beginning. To everyone except, apparently, Kerry himself. This reality lent an element of low farce to the entire proceedings. By now, it should really be obvious to any serious observer that there is no chance that the Israeli-Palestinian negotiating process will produce a comprehensive peace between the two sides. There are two core

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

MOKPO, South Korea -- The aroma of one of South Korea´s most popular delicacies is regularly compared to rotting garbage and filthy bathrooms. And that´s by fans.

White House: The ´77 cents´ wage gap figure

A White House adviser had to walk back the oft-repeated myth that women make 77 cents on the dollar that men make after being questioned about the figure during a conference call Monday. While detailing executive actions President Obama plans to take Tuesday regarding equal pay for women, Betsey Stevenson, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said very defiantly that despite women contributing 44 percent of their household incomes, they continue to make less than men. Obama has declared Tuesday "Equal Pay Day" to highlight his administration´s focus on that issue. “They’re stuck at 77 cents on the

Earlier Today I reported that health insurance premiums are showing the sharpest increases perhaps ever according to a survey of brokers who sell coverage in the individual and small group market. Morgan Stanley’s healthcare analysts conducted the proprietary survey of 148 brokers. The April survey shows the largest acceleration in small and individual group rates (for renewing health plans) in any of the 12 prior quarterly periods when the regular analysis has been conducted. The average increases for the present quarter are in excess of 11% in the small group market and 12% in the individual market, where consumers purchase

Paralyzed Patients Move Again
with Spinal Stimulation
Live Science, by Tanya Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/8/2014 9:09:27 AM     Post Reply
For people who become paralyzed after a spinal cord injury, the condition is usually permanent, but a new study suggests that zapping the spine with electricity during physical training could help paralyzed patients regain movement. Researchers applied electrical stimulation to the spines of four people who had been paralyzed for more than two years. All four patients were able to flex their toes, ankles and knees again, and their movements improved further with physical rehabilitation, the research showed. If proven effective in more people, the stimulation therapy could ultimately change the prognosis for people living with paralysis, researchers say.

Last week, continuing the sometimes catty intraparty feud between Republican hawks and GOPers skeptical of foreign intervention, former Vice President Dick Cheney took a shot at Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). But Paul is not likely to be fazed by criticism from Cheney, for several years ago the Kentucky senator was pushing the conspiratorial notion that the former VP exploited the horrific 9/11 attacks to lead the nation into war in Iraq in order to benefit Halliburton, the enormous military contractor where Cheney had once been CEO.

It will be weeks before the final results of Afghanistan’s presidential election, held Saturday, are announced. And the winner won’t take office until June. Nevertheless, the voting, the third of its kind since the fall of the Taliban in 2001, has already provided a new and exciting political snapshot of a country emerging from four decades of turmoil. The first feature of this snapshot is that a majority of Afghans have adopted elections as the best means of choosing and changing governments. On Saturday, more than 7 million went to the polls — almost 60 percent of registered voters — a

If the pings reported by the Chinese and Australians turn out to be from Malaysia Flight 370´s data recorders, we may be on the road to finding the plane and solving the mystery of its disappearance. But even if that is the case, we´ll need to resolve a larger issue: Incomprehensible as it might seem to the flying public, it is almost equally perplexing to airline pilots that a 650,000 pound airplane can disappear with barely a trace. Considering that the 777 is one of the most sophisticated and highly regarded airliners in the world, it doesn´t make sense. Nor

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G.

Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.
