'He was completely shell-shocked':

Members of Mitt Romney’s campaign staff ignored the early day warning signs of low voter turnout on Election Day and held on to their optimism until it turned into befuddled confusion. The person that was left the most surprised by the unfavorable numbers, however, was Romney himself. ‘There's nothing worse than when you think you're going to win, and you don't. It was like a sucker punch,’ one unidentified adviser told CBS. The concession call was handled by Romney’s body man, Garrett Jackson, who diligently called his Democratic counterpart Marvin Nicholson. ‘Is your boss available?’ Jackson asked.

Chris Christie, the bombastic New Jersey governor who has been under fire from conservatives for his effusive praise of Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy telephoned the president after his election win but only sent an email to Mitt Romney, it was revealed today. He told reporters at a press conference on Thursday that he had talked to Obama. 'We didn’t have a political strategy discussion,' he said. 'I said, "Congratulations on your win last night, Mr. President", he said, "Thank you".' Asked about whether he had spoken to Romney, he said: 'No. We exchanged emails last night.

Petraeus resigned Friday, citing an extramarital affair. The woman involved was not identified.

This may prove even more important than the initial reports suggest. Is Director David Petraeus a fatality of Chicago politics – made to remain silent prior to the election and now left to act as the administration’s sacrifice to Congressional investigators in the wake of the Benghazi scandal? Or is the former military general preparing to unleash facts that will lead directly back to the Obama White House and the president himself regarding what really happened on September 11th of this year when four Americans – including a U.S. ambassador, were killed during a coordinated terrorist attack against

Mr. Petraeus may have had no choice but to resign.

I’ve just returned from the BBC studios in Washington, where I watched and commented on President Obama’s first address to the nation since his re-election on Tuesday. In his speech the president called on the Executive Branch and Congress to work together to prevent America from going over the “fiscal cliff”, shorthand for $700 billion in automatic tax increases that will kick in from January 1st, 2013. Listening to his remarks from the White House in front of an adoring hand-picked audience, I was struck by how similar his message is to that of his French counterpart Francois Hollande.

  


  

David Petraeus in shock resignation
from CIA after admitting affair

General David Petraeus, the Director of the CIA, has dramatically resigned his post after admitting to having an extramarital affair. [Snip] "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours," he said in a statement. Gen Petraeus is married to Holly Petraeus, a senior official in Mr Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, where she leads an agency that works to protect members of the military and their families from abusive money-lenders.

Interior proposal would block oil shale
development on federal lands in West
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Zack Colman    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 11/9/2012 4:39:02 PM     Post Reply
The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development. The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation. The move is sure to rankle Republicans, who say President Obama’s grip on fossil fuel drilling in federal lands is too tight.

Amid the ruin and rubble of the grey morning after, it may seem in poor taste to do anything so vulgar as plug the new and stunningly topical paperback edition of my book, After America — or, as Dennis Miller retitled it on the radio the other day, Wednesday. But the business of America is business, as Calvin Coolidge said long ago in an alternative universe, and I certainly could use a little. So I’m going to be vulgar and plug away. The central question of Wednesday — I mean, After America — is whether the Brokest Nation in History is capable of meaningful course correction.

Oliver Stone: ‘I find Obama scary’

Each presidential cycle gets shrouded in the penultimate question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” In Oliver Stone’s new book — “The Untold History of the United States” — the filmmaker, along with historian Peter Kuznick, argues that, “The country Obama inherited was indeed in shambles, but Obama took a bad situation and, in certain ways, made it worse.” Much of Stone and Kuznick’s book focuses on the threats posed by government secrecy and militarism throughout history and, in an interview with Politico Friday, Stone said that things aren’t getting better.

President Obama has no plans to propose a tax on carbon emissions, a White House official said. “The Administration has not proposed nor is planning to propose a carbon tax,” the official said. Imposing a tax on fossil energy sources to curb greenhouse gas emissions faces huge political hurdles. But the idea has nonetheless received increased attention of late, especially as policymakers seek ways to address the deficit. The concept drew fresh buzz this week when an analyst with banking giant HSBC predicted that Obama might pursue a carbon tax. “A second Obama Administration could also

OCEANPORT — As he lights up a Marlboro and takes a slow drag before exhaling, Brian Sotelo is a man who has finally reached his breaking point. Anger drips from every word as he peers out at the tops of the white tents rising over the trees in the distance. The depth of despair in his eyes is difficult to fathom. And he makes it clear he’s was not going down without a fight. We stood and talked in the cool morning air a short distance up the road after security at the front gate threatened to have our cars removed

Thank you to all the readers who sent this to me. Apparently from testimony following the 2004 election, this computer programmer makes clear UNDER OATH, of how easily it would be for an organization, be it Democrat or Republican, to “flip” the election outcome via a rather simple code. – a code this programmer himself easily manufactured. This is further confirmed at the 3:10 of the video where the programmer notes how the entire system can be “hacked” to control the final voting outcome.

LOS ANGELES – Now that the election is finally over, our long national nightmare can finally begin again. President Obama will implore us to "come together." In theory this soundbyte has heretofor meant that conservatives should shut up, abandon their principles, and agree with him. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claimes that he wants to be "conciliatory" while in the same breath threatening to reduce the filibuster as a tool for the minority to prevent mob rule. The filibuster has existed since the Founding Fathers, and Mr. Reid may wish to think

Just days after Tuesday’s presidential election, President Barack Obama invited Capitol Hill leaders to the White House for debt and spending meetings next week in order to discuss the country’s looming ‘fiscal cliff.’ On the election, he said that “the American people voted for action, not politics as usual.” (Snip) “You elected us to focus on your job, not ours and in that spirit, I’ve invited leaders of both parties to the White House next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together.”

NEW YORK -- Gun sales are up in the wake of Barack Obama's re-election on Tuesday, driven by fears of tighter regulations under a Democratic president, especially for firearms that might be classified as assault weapons. "Sales are up," said John Kielbasa, owner of Fernwood Firearms in Hankins, N.Y. "I had a guy waiting here first thing in the morning [after the election.] He came in, bought two AK-47s." Kielbasa said that he sells semiautomatic versions of the fully automatic Kalashnikov rifles, as is permitted by law. He said the demand for semiautomatic

When asked Thursday night when power may be restored, LIPA Chief Operating Officer Michael Hervey told CBS Station WCBS the utility is aiming for the middle of next week. WCBS reports one spokesman suggested power may not be fully restored until Thanksgiving.

The page 'Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega' - set up by an anonymous group - is pleading for any information 'that could help bring the real killer or killers to be arrested.' And since the page was launched on October 29th - four days after the brutal stabbings of Lucia Krim and brother Leo in their Manhattan home - it has sparked fury from people who believe that

President Obama will today call upon Congress to work with him on preserving the lower tax rates first pushed by President Bush for those Americans who earn under $200,000 a year, but he will state his belief that voters were clear in re-electing him that they support a “balanced approach” to deficit reduction — meaning that the lower tax rates for higher wage earners should expire. The president, aides tell ABC News, will argue that the tax cuts for the middle class are something everyone agrees on, so there’s no reason for them
