On November 6, 2012, almost 66 million Americans traded the nation´s future for a chance to worship a false god. In a country of over 315 million people, a minority of eligible voters traded prosperity for the illusion of forced fairness. In reelecting Barack Obama, with fewer votes than in 2008, voters traded harmony for the divisiveness of America´s most polarizing president. Woody Allen said, "eighty percent of success is just showing up." How true, because a little more than 20% of America has successfully forced upon the nation 4 more years of Barack the failure.
FTA: Barack Obama is the worst thing to ever happen to this nation, and most Americans support neither him nor his policies.
Barack Obama, redolent with the stench of false supremacy, is now convinced that he is the greatest man to have ever lived -- not too difficult a task, since he had always suspected as much anyway.
Every sentence and every paragraph is a gem. Finally someone has the courage to call a "spade a spade" - can I say that without being called a nasty name? Anyway, this is a great article and should be a Must Read - it just might get through to some morons.
Republicans share the blame in this for not being able to get working, tax paying, constitution respecting Americans to the polls in sufficient numbers. Racial minorities cast 28% of the votes while numbering 23% of the electorate. I am not a person of the white race but (believe) that is a recipe for national suicide.
I wonder how many working people vote? They are exhausted from taking all the responsibilities. Others want that money and vote to get it. Maybe we need new vote at work voter capabilities and voter drives.
Obama could not be where he is and could not do what he does if the media were not behind him. They are the ones pushing their idol and creating a false image for the low information peasants- who unfortunately vote.
Taking from those who have earned and handing it to those who have not - the entire modus operandi of the Democrats and the root principle of socialism - is immoral, not just misguided or dumb. Immoral. Until Republicans get this and can convey it, in terms of morality, there is no hope. You cannot convey the immorality of the socialist ideology when you grant it "good intentions".
This is currently out of reach of the GOP, though, since it still stubbornly supports so many of the Democrats´ redistributionist programs.
To the culpability of our Republican leaders for luke warm support of Romney, add the Tea Parties. I had a go at the head of my Tea Party Patriots and got nowhere with her. They supported conservative Senators and Reps but sat on their hands as to Romnney.
To that add in the damage done by Newt Gingrich who had no way open to the nomination because he was not on the ballot in Virginia and in some counties in other states but who, despite having to know that (he´s not stupid though his followers were) would not get out of the way or shut up. I got a phone call from someone on his behalf yesterday and as soon as she identified herself I erupted with "Newt Gingrich! If it wasn´t for him we could have elected Romney!" and hung up. I am usually polite to everyone. I must be at the end of my patience.
Why the Republican bashing?? Obama is a disaster and we urgently need leaders to stop him and all the people in a position to obstruct this catastrophe are mute and paralyzed. The author of this article has done a great job of exposing Obama. There is little anyone could add to it and no hope of changing Obama. The only hope is to resurrect the opposition from the dead! Remember the Benghazi cover up and "investigation" . There is no opposition to the worst administration ever.
Come on #11, was it Newt that phoned in the last two debates after being so strong in the first? Did Newt tell the RNC that relying on an untested computer program on Election Day was a good idea? Was that Newt strolling arm-in-arm on the beaches of NJ, or was that Judas Chris Christie?
Blaming Newt because he put up a good fight in the primaries is fake, phony, fraudulent.

obama can´t function without an enemy. Disarm him and let him have his way. The results will be devastating, but the sooner he and he alone is held responsible for all the misery he wants to foist on Americans, the better off we will be in the long run.
I agree with #8. There is a huge influx of new names posting. I suspect these are not the Republicans they would have you believe they are. They spew hopelessness and division amongst us and I for one, am getting sick of it. Maybe it´s time for a clean up on aisle 5?
He´s right, Obama needs to be ridiculed !! His raging, vindictive, unresolved psychological problems, and there are many, show us he cannot stand to be ridiculed, this arrogant would-be king. So, make it tough and funny and outrageous. Serious criticism will not work against the King and his Court made up of the supplicating Diane Sawyer, kiss ass TV media. This Gensert article is brilliant: ridicule the little king. Ridicule, ridicule, ridicule. He is psychologically weak and vulnerable. Go to the best professional analysis www.destructivepresident.com
It must be understood that a good many of "Republicans" in Congress have as their first priority is getting re-elected. EVERYTHING is secondary to that. As such, they become, over time, RINOS and Dim Lite. They like the idea of loading down various bills with earmarks because it proides federal dollars being spent in their own districts. And that makes the voters happy. Obozo has just taken this to a new high. Spread the dollars around to those who are expected to vote for him and belittle those who oppose him. And for good measure, do everything possible to destroy any and all opposition. And he has the best ally in the world. The media.

We have a REAL big problem when you learn that almost 20% of the registered Republicans who showed up to vote on Election Day, didn´t vote for Romney/Ryan. They may not all have voted for Obammy but many did (while some didn´t vote for Prez at all and some even went 3rd party) you realize that there is little to be hopeful about. I´ve had my Republican friends say that keeping their kids on their medical until 26 was something they liked. Many older Republicans wanted the handouts to continue and the unemployed ones wanted 99 weeks of unemployment insurance! Romney talked about everyone pulling their own weight but many in his party don´t like that idea --- and voted accordingly.
Right now, many Republicans are starting to sound like old Civil War vets who keep thinking the South will rise again! It won´t. 150 years ago, many held on to their Confederate money, thinking it would come back into style. It didn´t. There has been a sea change in the country and we can´t just lay it all at Obammy´s feet. "We have met the enemy ... and he is us!". We need a new strategy. Pronto.
I don´t understand the moaning of some about attacking "Republicans". The Republican Party is to blame because they´ve let in way too many Democrats. There is no other way (except for live boy/dead girl) to explain the actions of federal level elected Republicans. What I´m really fighting for is an opposition party to the Democrats - our country runs better with at least 2 parties in opposition to each other. What we have now is closer to the old Soviet Union.
Gotta admire Gensert’s pluck. His “I’m mad as hell and not going to take it anymore” vow is exactly the attitude the GOP needs to cultivate. However, even Gensert doesn’t fully get it.
Republicans always head into elections locked and loaded. They just never seem to know who to aim at. Newt, for all his flaws, painted the target for us during the primaries. And we continued shooting at decoys when we somehow managed to avoid shooting ourselves in the foot.
The GOP’s real high-value target is not the 66 million Americans who voted for Obama. It’s not even Obama himself. It’s the media—the so-call Fourth Estate—which has become a cabal of fawning sycophants in the service of liberalism.
Republicans stood and cheered Newt when he challenged liberal moderators and refused to back down. We applauded because Newt was actually fighting back against the real foes of conservatism—the ones we face election after election no matter who Democrats nominate for any particular office.
To level the playing field, Republicans have to mount and sustain a full-frontal assault on liberal media bootlickers, brown-nosers, suck-ups, lap-dogs, etc., not because they are incredibly annoying (they are), but because their continued dereliction of duty poses a grave danger to our Republic.
No candidate should be given a pass instead of a thorough vetting. No politician should be immune from criticism. No leader should be able to dodge hard questions.
The GOP should hire Newt to run a GOP boot camp to train Republicans how to deal with the media—including how to make the media itself the focus of stories—to hinder JournoList types from sending their carefully-scripted, coordinated talking points “halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on.”
I´m not sure I understand the venom toward Rep electeds. If the base doesn´t care--and they couldn´t be bothered to turn out and vote unless some computer program told them to, apparently--why should the politicians care?
I beleive there isn´t a hair difference in any of these politicians in DC. We just elected a Republican to replace our Dem Congressman. He promised to be conservative and fought all the Republicans running against him in the primary elections. Even name calling, dirty political tactics, lies, etc. As soon as he won in Nov he did a complete about face. In his first interview this month he was touting the fact that he was reaching across the aisle and his new best friend is Congressman Joe Kennedy. Now I know that he will not represent anything I stand for. Perhaps we are the morons.
How do you explain the massive crowds that turned out for Romney rallies in contrast to the abysmally low turnouts for Obama? Why did the DNC decide to move their convention to a site with far fewer seats?
Does no one remember the rampant VOTE FRAUD, such as the 141 percent ‘turnout’ in St. Lucie County, Florida? I bet Allen West remembers!
Similar population/registrant vs vote discrepancies took place in other states, particularly in the battleground states.
And how about those Philadelphia precincts voting 100 percent for Obama . . . after the Democrat polecats forcefully pushed the Republican poll watchers from the buildings?
And the Ohio voters who went to the polls . . . intending to vote . . . but were turned away because they were told they’d already voted?! I wonder how those Ohioans feel about this myopic blame-the-Republicans piece.
And the military votes? Did any of the ballots actually get to our military in time for their votes to count? Of those ballots that did, how many actually make it to the voter precincts here? Besides the more ‘common’ delays, why did a plane — that was transporting military votes — oh, so conveniently, crash?
I voted. What else could I do? Am not willing to pay the price Oswald did. Need my money for myself and not willing to give it to Republican campaigns to squander on poor commercials. ØDumbø´s weakest link was the healthcare debacle. But Romney merely mentioned it. In fact he said he would keep the good parts and fixed what needed to be fixed. I couldn´t believe it. What good parts? Plus Mittens spent a lot of time trying to convince people he was a nice guy. He should have been going after The Kenyan Nincompoop and pointed out that he is out to destroy America and us. At least the fly that attacked The Indonesian Imbecile knew what it was doing.
AS Mark Levin has so appropriately stated, America needs more, ´Paul & Paulette Reveres!´
Why NOW, after the USA has become THE authentic beacon of individual Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness & the resulting prosperity on the planet? The answer is evident: Americans who cherish Life Liberty must first ourselves understand the foundational principles which have kept the USA free in order for us to recognize the devious threat to that freedom which is currently being deemed by the dem´s counterfeit agenda which erodes Liberty as well as Life! Only then can, ´Paul & Paulette Revere,´ sound the alarm! (What is the GOP message?)
Apparently there are now too many who take freedom for granted because they have been taken in by the radical ´60s dems´ & their media´s socialist siren song, which always leads to tyranny on the rocks of brute force, as can be seen tragically & currently in other such BIG Governmental/top-down dictated countries!
Thus, ´educated,´ & primed by the conniving & devious dems´ counterfeit agenda, with reality & truth hidden by the dems´ media cult, some voters in the last election simply did not understand the peril to freedom which 0bama & the corrupted dem party´s statist policies are pushing our ship of state! With demonstrable disregard & disdain for the U.S. Constitution and their oaths of office, the conniving dem pols´ leadership would rather have Lady Liberty dashed upon the rocks of radical lefty/lib statism, just like all of history´s past central-planning fifedom failures, than this Republic to remain governed, ´´...of the people, by the people and for the people.´´
The self-engrandizing & self-enriching statist dems´ verbal, ´´message,´´ promises, ´pie in the sky,´ to their supporters but their policy actions result in just the opposite: more poverty, more dreams dashed, more corruption. ´´Pottersville,´´ personified.
Gensert gets it: "When we dare to stop caring how successful we look to people, caring people will dare to look at us as successful." Unfortunately, the GOP elites, with their CountryClub mores, don´t. "Go along to get along" is their philosophy, which is about as successful as the British wearing red coats and marching in straight lines.
Faced with the inefficacy of their group-think, GOP apologists continue their denial and can only blame conservatives for not being enthusiastic enough about their milquetoast candidate. They´re no better than the Democrats in assuming responsibility.
I want an opposition party, not a stupid party. It’s been apparent for decades that the grandees of the Grand Old Party shy away from sustained confrontation against the media or the socialist democrats, and abandon any who try. It’s a tired and trite observation. We are expected to accept continued capitulation as the only consistent Republican political principle, and are blamed for the resulting failures because we point them out.
The Tea Party was a ready made grassroots movement that was placed in the lap of the Republican Party. You´d think they got dumped with an ice bucket, the way they jumped up and brushed us off their pants. If some Tea Party groups didn´t enthusiastically embrace Romney and the anointed GOP candidates, I hardly think they can be blamed for their own tepid response. We’re tired of the old excuses that the media is biased, or that the Republicans don’t have the votes so kicking the can down the road is another grand bi-partisan compromise that will set us up for a win next time
Why the lack of message? Why the lack of constant attack? Why the lack of basic political savvy? We never get answers to these questions. We only get berated for “bashing our own” and told that by “airing our dirty laundry” we are aiding and abetting our enemies. Treatment that is reminiscent of the socialists. Is it any wonder that many are beginning to conclude that the lack of message, the lack of fight, the lack of backbone is because the Republicans are just the “right” wing of the Big Government Party? What other rational explanation is there for the constant capitulation?
Excellent points by Posters 8, 11, 25 and 34 . If I might add the talkers on the right ( Limbaugh and Levin and Savage ) to the mix who bashed and bashed and bashed Romney for months- he´s a bum, he´s a RINO, he´s pro abortion, he´s a liberal, he´s not conservative, etc. All false charges designed to keep their audience agitated and their ratings up. They did the same with George W Bush and McCain and Dole before them. After the election , some self appointed Tea Party honcho wrote a column bragging about the hundreds of thousands of Evangelicals and Tea Partiers and Ron Paul supporters who stayed home rather than vote for the impure Romney. Or because they felt dissed somehow by the RNC . We apparently have many low information and self centered voters on the right who needed to be sweet talked or hand carried to the polls . The far right pouters helped elect Obama . It´s time the Republicans catered to common sense conservatives and paid less attention to the unrealistic and unhelpful demands of the far right and their talk radio counterparts.
I´ve been posting here since the very beginning so no one can claim that I´m a new troll trying to disrupt. Given that the Republicans have, just in the last two days, let Hillary and Kerry skate, how can anyone blame those of us who skewer them as useless? Face it, between guns, immigration, "securing the internet", gutting the military and gutless Republicans, our country is lost. Who is going to stop zippy from doing anything he wants?
I´m all for ridiculing and calling out the WON. Now where do we find the megaphone to shout out the message. Alt media? That´s preaching to the choir. Facebook? The Zuckerburgers will take down your page.
Strategically placed billboards... Ads in USA Today & during primetime tv shows. Radical strong effective ads, blasting brownshirts vs individual freedom. List the constitutional violations, over & over & over again.
Here´s one for you:
What is the difference between Obama & Putin? Obama wants higher taxes & Putin has a 15% flat tax.
Or to rile up the anti war cowering crowd:
Obama has a personal kill list for drone attacks... If you´re not on it today, maybe tomorrow!
Individuals who have even visited Israel, or who observe Judaism, or who carry a Bible are banned from Saudi Arabia. Yet Saudi Arabia´s Israel-hating King Abdullah just flew in an Israeli scientist to have dinner with him, to enjoy some royal hospitality, accept a medal and the $200,000 "Arab Nobel Prize." It´s a not-so-subtle message to President Obama: the unthinkable can happen, so don´t assume the Saudis won´t join with Israel to bomb Iran. Obama´s new Iran policy moves the Mid-East closer to war over oil and religion -- Sunni Saudis versus Shia Iranians. There is no more strategic commodity than
Before "if you like your plan, you can keep it," the Obama left made a whole spate of false promises in the realm of sexuality. It´s worth connecting the dots between the folly of ObamaCare, an issue for which I wasn´t personally on the front lines, and the sweeping folly of sexual radicalism, an issue for which I was. In the rhetorical battlefield over sex and sexuality, the left rehearsed and perfected public-opinion warfare. These seasoned tactics led to the triumphal hubris of ObamaCare and the collateral damage of its inexorable implosion. Pick your antique allegory of overconfidence: the Tower of Babel,
"I´ve written two books," Senator Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in Virginia on the campaign trial in July of 2008. The teachers applauded. "I actually wrote them myself," he added with a wink and a nod, and now the teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Republicans were too stupid to write their books. Although few fussed over Obama´s second book, a first-person memoir/ policy brief published in 2006 titled The Audacity of Hope, Obama´s 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father had emerged as the sacred text in the cult of Obama "There is no underestimating the importance
Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use this year´s
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
MONTICELLO, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A video recording shows the mayor of the Sullivan County municipality of Monticello in a heated confrontation after being arrested by his own police officers. (Snip) He was taken into custody after showing up to take a look at a serious car accident on Main Street. A volunteer firefighter noticed the mayor looked drunk, according to police, and notified law enforcement. Jenkins was arrested on the spot. In a video recorded at his own police headquarters, a man identified as Jenkins was shown seated in a chair with one hand handcuffed to a wall. During the first
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony.
