Krauthammer: Obama has ‘no mandate,’
GOP future ‘quite bright’ [Video]

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/7/2012 6:56:58 AM

On Fox News Channel’s coverage of the presidential election, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer seemed to handle Gov. Mitt Romney’s loss as well as anyone on the right could be expected to, particularly given the surprisingly wide margin. Going forward, Krauthammer explained that President Barack Obama will not be as strong as he was in the early part of his first term, when his party held majorities in both chambers of Congress. “I think the real story here is that Obama won, but he’s got no mandate,” Krauthammer declared. “He won by going very small, very negative, and we are left as

The die is cast, the takers outnumber the earners and with the flood of illegal aliens the browning of America continues to accelerate and they will only want and demand more.

This will not stop any time soon it's the new normal.

The far lefts 50 year plan came to fruition last night.

Now in this presidential term 3 Supreme court justices will reach the age of 80 years old, their replacements will cement the course of this country for many decades to come.

America is lost.

It would have been nice if Romney brought up Clinton's "the era of big government is over" quote. It just wasn't in him.

I agree with Krauthammer that the GOP has a lot of young talent that wasn't quite ready this year. Instead of Rubio I would have mentioned John Kasich, Susana Martinez and Ted Cruz.

What is he smoking?:

But looking forward, there is not much for Obama to do, according to the Washington Post columnist.

How about appointing 2 SCOTUS justices?
How about bypassing Congress and simply legislating from the White House?
How about EO's that will affect the FCC's ability to regulation people like Hannity, Beck and Rush off the air?
How about punishing businesses even more by regulating them out of existence if they don't toe the socialist line?
How about doing more of what he has done that has destroyed our economy?
How about reparations?
How about his "civilian defense force with as much power as the military"?
How about Valerie Jarrett's comment that those against Obama will pay and that "it's our turn now"?
How about Obamacare's damage to patients and doctors?
How about appointing a "Jobs Czar" into which to funnel more of our money?
How about crippling energy limitations on YOUR thermostat via the EPA?

What can Obama do? He can live out his wet dream to turn America into a third world country?

How about his "revenge"?

Is Krauthammer losing it?

Of course, we are vividly reminded of the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. Throughout history, no nation has endured as a 'Super Power' forever. As Rome was not sundered by outside forces but by internal strife, so too is our Nation sundered by the Balkanization of it's people. Groups pitted against groups for government treats paid for by forceably taxing the productive citizenery have focused the electorate on small things. What will be required to unite the Nation is a significant emotional event - most unfortunately. As BHO looks to FDR as his role model, consider that the antidote to FDR's ruinous economic policies was WWII. Pearl Harbor famously galvanized the Nation into Yamamoto's 'Sleeping Giant'. With news of Russia's nuclear submarine laying off the coast of the northeastern US and BHO's comment that he'll have more flexiblity after the election to render America's nuclear arsenal harmless, I fear we are approaching either that 'significant emotional event' or utter and complete ruin as a Nation. May God have mercy on us!

Little barry doesn't need a mandate to do what he wants to do. He will just issue a Presidential order and the Republicans in the House/Senate will do absolutely nothing. The 2nd Amendment is now toast. I wonder how he will order us to turn in our guns?

Was Krauthammer watching the same returns I was? If so, what in hell is he talking about?

We got our asses kicked. At every level, we got spanked. We lost a lot of good people, we lost potential stars like Allen West and Mia Love, we lost Scott Brown. I think, postmortem, we need to stop asking "what is wrong with this country?" (because I think deep down we know EXACTLY what's wrong), and instead start asking "What can we do to exploit this?"

I am a pro-choice Republican, but I have nothing but respect for the prolife movement. So I say this with all respect t my fellow L-dotters who oppose abortion: rethink your position. These innocent children you work so honorably to defend and protect are the reason for the ever-expanding welfare state. No one in the GOP has the guts to say "no more welfare for out of wedlock births," so we're left with one choice: abort them or support them. I know which one I'm choosing.

Not to worry folks, Obama-Mao can't run from the deep psycho reality he has been playing all his life with the ghost of his father. He is going to "go out" just like dear old daddy did in Africa, not perhaps in the same manner, but he will be a burn out reality.

This is the second "civil war" for the United States. What do the present victors want? That question has not been answered clearly and decisively. When it does get answered, the next question is can reality marry such wants?

Evil is here, lying at every phase. I warned you people four years ago...

It's ridiculous and certainly counterproductive to paint any kind of positive picture about what just happened. This has to be the biggest, most crushing defeat the Right has ever had in the USA. Spinning it otherwise, turning the other cheek, only avoids the gargantuan problem we face - an electorate so dumbed-down that it will vote for anything the Corrupt Media tells it to vote for. And after Obama stacks the Supreme Court (sooner than you think), socialism in all its oppressive forms will soon be "constitutional", and there goes the USA. "Quite bright", Dr. ? No, let's not fool ourselves today.

In the long run this is the beginning of one party rule. I don't think the Republican Party will ever recover. If we couldn't beat Obama we can't beat anyone. That, and as soon as they can do it the entire medical industry will be unionized. The Democrat party will develop that into a money machine that will keep them in office for ever.

Tell me why 3 million people who voted for McCain failed to show up and vote yesterday?
When they finish counting all the votes on the West Coast Obama will have won with about the same number of votes McCain earned in his defeat.

Romney let Obama's negative ads in the swing states go unanswered all summer long. This is what caused him to lose those states.

Krauthammer was one of the "establisment" during the primary season browbeating us into accepting the "oh-so obvious" fact that Romney was the only way to beat Dear Leader. The good doctor and others like NR were shills for the establishment, and their "status" secure.
We, the great unwashed will be blamed that we didnt' donate enough, didn't do enough, etcetra, etcetra, etcetra.
We have to decide do we want to be part of a party that in its heart is really a lite version of the Dems, or do we form into an interest group that needs to be courted for its votes.
Time for some sober and honest debate amongst ourselves.

#6 is right and said it better than I could. I can only hope that the House will fight his efforts where they can but it is only hope, I think they will fold. I don't care if we lose every Presidential battle the House needs to hold there ground on some sort of fiscal line that can't be crossed.

Krauthammer is full of it and he knows it. We're past the tipping point now and the demographics are only going to get worse. The Obamunists used their Cloward-Piven strategy perfectly. Overwhelm the system with massive increases in dependency programs. Reward and increase government workers. And open the borders to unlimited illegal immigration, soon to be permanent Democrat voters.

It really doesn't matter who our candidates will be. It doesn't matter how big our crowds are or how much enthusiasm we have. The truth is we are now outnumbered by the parasites. And you can bet the Obamunists are going to make certain their numbers just get bigger.

We are now enslaved and will be working to have the parasites well fed and cared for.

I for one will work fervently to get a third party to the table. Neither the GOP, nor the candidates it shoves at me will get my support again. I am done holding my nose to vote. Personally, my worst fears about a Romney candidacy have been proven out. Mr. Electable really wasn't, he was John McCain, without the doddering.

First. Charles is wrong and #4 is EXACTLY correct. The "Takers" are now in charge and they will be from now on.

Second. Bob Beckle, of all people, hit the nail on the head last night. He said that the Southern states (FL,VA,NC)were safe Republican states because of the White Vote. NOW...the COUNTRY is majority Brown and they will ALWAYS vote Democrat. I was stunned, but when I thought about it, he made a lot of sense. It doesn't matter WHO Republicans run for President, we will lose because the BROWN vote will always go Democrat. THEY do not want to lose any of their Government handouts! Thanks to ILLEGAL immigration 20 years ago we now have millions of Hispanics who are of voting age and they came out last night in droves for Obama. Nothing is going to change..ever! I'm thankful I'm 71 and won't be here to see the decline of my Country!

Charles is dead wrong. Zero has never concerned himself with the Constitution or Congress. This was a butt whipping, simple as that. The Republicans in the House will see this as "the people have spoken" and will give Obama what he needs to "move forward". Don't blame the Republicans. America voted and this is evidently what we want. That is exactly how the Republicans will see it. It's the American voters fault, not the Republicans. We lost guys and it's hard to see how we can turn things around at this point. Very sad for my country.

I don't read anything Chuck says. He lost his cred years ago. This wasn't a defeat of the "Right." Mittens was a moderate, establishment Republican. Those that compared him to Reagan are fools. What did he do as Governor that was so Reaganesque?

Now let's find a real conservative who can articulate their positions for the bumper sticker media.

Sorry, Charlie. This was the GOP's election to win, and they blew it. They are Losers.

They left Benghazi, Iran, Sandy, LSM bias, and election fraud on the table. They had an army of Tea Partiers that they brushed aside. Where where the massive Tea Party rallies this year? Where was the RNC helping to organize them? The RNC claimed an aggressive ground game to compete with the Dems. Where was it?

Like Lincoln fired McClellan, it's time to fire the RNC. They will try to hide behind the legacy of Reagan, but remember that Reagan won despite the GOP Establishment's best efforts. He was one of us - not one of them. Romney was typical of the RINO broccoli that they ask us to consume, in the grand old tradition of Dewey, the Bushes, Dole, and McCain.

It's time to assemble a new team with new coaches. It's time for a new party.

Who exactly did the vote counting? Someone somewhere said it was outsourced to Spain. And doesn't it seem rather peculiar that nearly every must win seat, or turn was defeated. It wasn't an election, the fix was in, pure and simple, and that is why Obama didn't care that he campaigned badly. He just gamed everyone who bought into his schtick.

I agree with many posters - the tipping point has passed and the takers will continue to grow and win every election. It may be too late for the young bloods in the Republican Party. As one poster put it - if we couldn't defeat someone as obviously bad as obama, whom can we defeat? Our son is twenty and I worry so much about his future.

#9 expresses my feelings this morning. Romney was right about the 47%'ers. I'm proud to have supported him.

I hope Marco Rubio is sharpening his talents because I see him as a bright spot in an otherwise bleak future for the GOP.

If Chris Christie suddenly starts losing weight, watch out, he's aiming for 2016. He will NEVER get my vote.

Charles - He doesn't care if he has a mandate. He rules by the stroke of a pen. The Senate will not deny him. Taxmagedon, Obamaare, Our nuke force will be erased. He will sign treaties that the Senate will not gainsay.

Julius Caesar at least looked out for his own interests and needed a strong Rome. This bum is punishing the U.S. for daring to be free and inventive. He doesn't need a mandate, and don;t be surprised if he finagles an 'extension' to the Presidency like Chavez did.

There is no bright future for the GOP without a bright future for America.

Going forward we will not have the numbers to win a national election. The birth rate in pro-socialist communities will permanently change that balance.
Charismatic candidates or a tanked economy won't overcome that.

So, lets get to work on a plan to win the war, and not just an occasional battle. Remember how happy we were when we beat back Hilary Care? Yeah... We need a new plan.

The election night loss was bad, but the whining and belly-aching of some conservatives is worse.

The Left are the ones who cry, moan, and complain whenever things don't go their way. The Left are the ones who see voter fraud all over when their candidates lose.

But listening to some conservatives today, I don't see much of a difference.

Yes, there will be some voter irregularities. In a nation where over 110 million votes are cast, that's going to happen. The key is to make sure these things do not go above and beyond what would be normal. But until any kind of mass fraud is uncovered, if at all, why do so many people just assume a stolen election?

We're so much better than that. We're the adults here, let's start acting like it.

We move on. We dissect and actually educate ourselves about election cycles (unlike a vast majority on the Left, it would seem), and take solace from many things, such as Dr. K has pointed out.

The loss of the presidential election is sad. The actions of some conservatives today is depressing.

I admit I wasn't a Romney supporter during the primaries, however when he won, I supported him fully because he was the GOP candidate and of course better than the incompetent in the WH. He's a nice well spoken man with business experience, with an exceptional family. He should have won in a breeze, but as usual, the RNC has no idea on how to run a winning campaign, in a technical era.

I've participated in smaller campaigns, and you always know how the campaign is going and you make adjustments as you go along. As far as polls go, they aren't trustworthy. Most people will lie a blue streak to pollsters. They don't trust them and most have made up their minds on who they are going to vote for beforehand, and don't see the necessity of answering questions because pollsters won't tell you who they represent.

I admire Ron Paul supporters because they are active, in fact overactive to the point of being irritating. But votes for third or fourth party candidates are wasted in the General election because the most important goal in this campaign was to rid the country of the crooks and gangsters encamped in DC. It is typical today that some GOP/RNC sages are blaming people like Rush Limbaugh for the election loss. Let me say this, you got the candidate you wanted, you ran the campaign, and you should man up and take responsibility for losing to an incompetent foe who should have gone down big. I voted for Romney, but you had my vote all along. Your campaign didn't round up the bystanders you needed;.

The next four years are going to be hell.

trying to be cheerful: His majority declined; he would not have won without African-American votes that will not be there for a Democrat of any other color who underperforms like this; about SCOTUS, there does always remain the option of court packing if an electoral mandate supports it (as it did not for Roosevelt, but the option exists in principle); and now and his party have to deal with Social Security. The GOP was going to take the pain, but the Democrats have seized that poisoned chalice. Among others

The Second Coming

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

William Butler Yeats

I am more disappointed than I have ever been at the results of an election. But if I didn't believe in a God who can keep the oil and flour container from going empty, I would have no reason to go on.

Spinners like Charles and Rove, mm mm mm. Is there anything they can't get their pansy middle to buy? Charles and Rove will be around indefinitely arguing our only hope is republicanism. They will compose for the political reality of needing candidates who won't scare off the the new demographic types, illegals, raza, those naughty victory mosque building muslims, teachers for norming the alternate life stle/ socialism, neutered media friends, dope legalizers bringing us needed tax money, fairness mongers, constitution maulers, Silent George NWO types -- basically the flexibility crowd. Traditional clingers will be made to understand by Charles, and an "Of course I'm disappointed" McCain, a the House Weeper, and Crispy, and Coulter the Writer, and Rove the Akin Killer, and their kind of human being, that things can look quite bright if only they will come around. "Hey you. Hey. Kiss. Come on around there, bubba. Join us. Shake my overpaid, dumpling soft, collaboraters hand." That means no more severe conservatives like Romney. We are going to need an even gentler breed of republican. Something more in Charles' image. Go Hatch-Graham in 2016.

A mandate is but a state of mind and Obama is in that state. He will declare he has a mandate regardless. He will use it to bypass Congress. The ends justify the means. Now the real question. Will Congress stop him?

obama doesn't need a "mandate" -- he's gonna continue his destruction of America with his trusty pen....

Time to re/evaluate your assets. I'm moving mine away from the "O" as quickly as I can.....

He's no president of mine. My president is President Romney in exile.....

He can spike the ball in the end/zone and moooooochelle can slouch on the view's couch. They will "never" represent me and mine.

I will ENDURE these next four years as I ENDURED WWII in my youth.

NO ONE can crawl into my heart and make me a communist, marxist or a socialist. I am an American Dream come true. I came to this country and succeeded in raising a wonderful family and living with dignity....

Move you assets everyone from the takers. At some point the demorats will see they can't "spend" if there's NO money to "spend"..... China will stop the "cash/flow" when they see no possibility of a return....

Time to call your lawyers and let them work their magic in hiding your hard/earned "stuff"....

Sorry, Charles. I couldn't disagree more. Bush had a voter-given mandate and the corrupt Democrat press neutralized it. Obama has no voter-given mandate and the same arm of the DNC will give it to him.

This is why we need someone, anyone, to investigate FL, OH, and VA. Those votes were too close and "just enough" and the blatant fraud around the country points to some real shenanigans there.

#50, I agree. If Texas can, why not other States? It may have been a tad unrealistic in the past to talk about secession, but we have never been this polarized, philosophically and culturally in the past as we are now.

Maybe Rush was right when he talked about flipping a coin and having splitting the country right down the middle, with liberals taking and running their half the way they want, and conservatives doing likewise with their half. The key point was that liberals need the producers to steal from in order to run their half of the country.

Personally, I don't want anything to do with liberals any more, nor their constituents and would be happy to form "Conservia" with my half of the country.

If this pipe dream ever happened, how long would it take before the liberal half tried sneaking into the conservative half because the former's lifestyle would be so abyssmal. Liberals can only operate when they control other people's lives and fortunes. They can't make it on their own with just their ideology.

I say secede.

I'm as unhappy about the result as anyone else, but I think Krauthammer makes some good points. Romney got 48% of the vote - hardly a wipe out. The GOP held the House - no easy fete, and if not for some very weak Senate candidates would have won that too.
The seeds of victory are found in every defeat.

How is the GOP future bright? 93% plus of blacks voted for Obama. The majority of "Heespanics" voted for Obama. Single women (more and more them every year now) vited for Obama.

Yes it a nice list of talent lined up to run next time(where have I heard that before)

But we will manage to "dirty-up" most, if not all, of them in the farce the RNC call a primary.

Dems wan't have to trash them, we do that ourselves.

Anybody doubt that?

When Dole ran, I said the only person who can't win is Dole, the RNC ran Dole!

McCain, see above Dole 2.0

Romeny, see above Dole 3.0

Past is prologue, the play that follows never changes.

#47, how perfectly Yeats describes the sense of foreboding that I feel today, and have felt for some time now.

The perpetually smug Charles never gets it.

China sees our energy assets as collateral, and O agrees. He's saving them for them and will ensure they receive Canada's energy in the meantime.

I am going for my Irish citizenship now--something that felt vaguely treasonous even though I have been eligible. We all need options now, and I am open to ideas from ldotters regarding protecting personal assets under the permanent socialist tyranny we live under.

Pointing fingers and blaming others for this loss is useless. We are starting to sound like Obama. The reality is we lost honorably and Obama won ugly. Anyone who says negative campaigning doesn't work is naive and ignorant. The facts show it does.
I thought Romney had it sewed up, but I started getting a squeezy feeling this past week end when the race tighened. Then when Larry Sabato predicted an Obama win, I ran for my Zantac.

Even though my thousands of prayers are still out there and were not answered last night, I believe they will be at the right time...God listens and waits.

We've much to do in the next several months, but right now today, I hope everyone finds something of joy and trys to focus on it.

Today I woke up and for the first time in my life was disappointed with the country I live in. Realism has finally taken hold.
The country is finished it was a nice run for about 200 years.
The communist now have full control and have won.
Too many people over 60 will die in the next 4 years.
Too many young idiots coming out of college and high school in the next 4 years.
Too many Republicans scared of their own shadows.
Too many pundits that don’t know what they are talking about
Too much race influx into the country in the next four years.
Too much big business and government collusion in the next four years.
Too many secrets given to the communists in the next four years.
Too many communist in the government, including the puppet in charge.
White people built the country and the so called minorities will destroy it with all the influx of people coming in to take advantage of the welfare system.
The conservative movement will be redefined with moderates and is dead.
Thank god for Ronald Reagan he slowed it down till the end of my life cycle anyway.
The Republican party is dead.
Today is my last day I will listen to Rush or any other well-meaning pundit.
Krauthammer is an idiot forward does not care about a mandate.
God is in the process of exacting punishment on this country.

The absolute best we can expect over the next two years is the status quo; Boehner and McConnell standing up and staying strong against Obama and the Democrats. Yeah, right. Boehner won't be able to keep the Republicans together because most of the Republicans will be afraid of being tarred as the 'party of no' and thereby losing their seats in 2014. This will result in the GOP further slipping towards irrelevancy.

I heard last night that exit polls indicated that 60% of respondents prefer smaller government to bigger government. Unfortunately, the Tea Party has been disfigured beyond recognition by the GOP establishment and idiots like Akin and Mourdock.

The GOP will go the way of the Whigs and something needs to take its place.

If Obama was a white man with the same political record of economic failure he never would have been re-elected.

The big political deal that the Republicans will have to face is the changing voter demographics in the country. You can bet that Obama will now demand what amounts to amnesty, and a "path to citizenship" for just about every illegal alien who is now in the USA, probably incrementally. The phrase "path to citizenship" is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually granting those would be legalized aliens US voting rights.

In plain English what that will mean is 20 million or so potential new liberal Democrat voters in the years ahead. And that is just the first wave, as once legalized under the liberal family reunification provisions of the immigration laws those aliens will have a legal right to bring many additional millions of their foreign relatives into the USA to also be put on a fast track to US voting rights.

With that many new liberal Democrat voters, the majority of who would be poor, low wage earning, generally uneducated foreign born people, most with little or no bottom line tax liability, they will have zero incentive to keep taxes low, and will always vote for the political candidate who promises them the most in terms of new rights and government paid for benefits and services.

Forget about Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden in 2016, as this election has shown that the winning formula for the liberal Democrats with the changing national voter demographics is to locate and put an Obama clone at the top of their ticket on into the future.

Today, the GOP is irrelevant. They have no message and no cause that attacts or resonates with the majority of voters.

The have managed to set themselves back to the place they occupied from the 1930's thru the 1960's.

They are the "Loyal Opposition" in name only, and functionally only useful to fill out guest lists for Washington cocktail parties.

This has nothing to do with finding recriminations about who is at fault - Tea Party, RINO's, Conservatives - it doesn't matter.

There is no product to sell that the general voting population is interested in buying.

The Democrats have won and won big by proving that the size of government doesn't matter. What does matter is what you're promised to get from it.

I have to go now - I'm going to start trying to find out what I can get for free.

Krauthammer is dreaming. The Dictator needs no mandate.

We were socialist lite, now we are socialist marching briskly to communism. My only consolation is that my husband & I are old, we have no children or grandchildren. I am determined to march cheerfully to my fate with my head up and the memory of a once great nation in my heart. I will give no one the satisfaction of seeing anything but a bright smile today. The Spartans, the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Romans, the British Empire have all gone into that good night and now we are going too. We must face our end bravely as our founding fathers did as an example to us.

He owns it – every horrible piece of it and the liberals who put him in again own it too. Benghazi,fast & furious, Hurricane Sandy, 16 Trillion, Afghanistan & Iraq and Israel’s fate. President Bush & the republicans cannot be blamed any longer.

We have been forsaken as a nation and God has turned his face from us. We were born free and will die slaves in a communist state. Half the country is on government assistance. They were not about to give up the milky. They chose comfort over freedom hence they deserve neither and people like us will join them in suffering the consequences for their foolishness.

God said "choose life". This nation did not choose wisely last night.

May God have mercy on some of us

Unfortunately, it doesn't matter whom we nominate anymore - the inmates are running the prison, and the game has changed in their favor.

Our main problem was that we harped too much on the Benghazi affair.
The Takers and the Morons couldn’t less care about that.

The only bright spot is that we should not have to expect to see also Narzi Pelosi every time we turn the TV on.
For a while.

If an election is allowed in 2014, I sure hope we can hold the House.

There are some other thoughts that we must dare not pre-think.
We must sure watch what we pre-say now.

One of these days, the Takers and the Morons will discover that the promised free stuff ain’t there -- after the Makers have said “to heck with it” and have gotten on the Welfare rolls, too, or have moved to Iceland.

The usual suspects should take note that the Makers will guard their own pantries.

We are outnumbered and we will continue to be outnumbered.
This election was our last chance to save the country and no candidate could have been more qualified
or run a better campaign
than Romney / Ryan.
The takers will only increase and the makers will decrease and no amount of unrealistic happy spin
is going to change that.
The corrupt media is more powerful than the right wing blogs , radio, FOX ,etc.
Republicans nationally cannot defeat the entrenched , liberal blue state mentality.
Four years of Obama was supposed to guarantee a conservative tidal wave and instead,
he's gotten stronger.

If Krauthammer came out of his delusional bubble he would see the wreckage around him. Our country is a smoking ruin thanks in large measure to the leftist media of which he is a part, admit it or not.

The Republicans are wimps and squishes; the American voters (not even worthy of that description) are ignorant and impotent.

My level of tolerance for this situation has hit bottom. I'm done with news, experts and pundits. After 75 years on this earth, I have seen all I want to see of selfish and corrupt government - here and abroad - and the culture of laziness that supports it.

As I approach the time that I can expect to need health care, which amounts to a death sentence, I can take a shred of comfort in the fact that I have left behind no offspring to face the downfall of what was once a beautiful dream. My heart goes out to those of you who worry about the future of your children and grandchildren.

I contend we are NOT outnumbered. Yes, approx 51% receive $$ from the govt (we taxpayers). But out of that number consider who is getting it! It's not all welfare & the like -- it's also Veterans, elderly War Babies (who are living longer) & aging Baby Boomers on SS.

So how many in that "taker" column are truly the Dem base? We are NOT outnumbered. Yet.

We are in for the fight of our nation's life now -- we must get through to the GOP:

1) No more RINOs as candidates anywhere
2) Give up the gay marriage "fight" & produce an alternative in a positive way for gays who want to be monogamous (think about Liz Cheney while you do this)
3) Produce a platform the Tea Party is using or become irrelevant & face a Tea Party split vote.
4) Go after a way to get our message fairly presented in the MSM even if we have to sue them to do it.

I, for one, plan to write a letter to the Republican Party (as outlined above) & terminate my membership. They have to win me back or I am going either Independent or to the Tea Party.

In some respects, Dr. K is right. Obama hasn't had a mandate since the 2010 midterms. The House picked up more seats last night.
True, Obama has the EO but any new stimulus packages, immigration 'reform', energy shut downs, etc. would have to go through the House, and Boehner will stand fast. Last night, the American people voted for gridlock.
The best Obama can hope for is the end
of the Bush tax cuts. Once people see the tax increases in their withholding, those who voted for Obama will start to scream.
He's as close to a lame duck as a newly-elected pres can be.
That's as optimistic as I can be.
Last summer, I was shocked that Romney didn't choose Marco Rubio as his VP. He could have won Florida and probably Colorado.

Everybody is peeing on our grave. Let me add a little bit as well.
For many years I was reminding to all of us - the fascists/commies wrote the playbook: seize the media and banks (hitler, lenin knew that!).
Repubics didn't know that or pretended they didn't hear those warnings. There is the brilliant book Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane, but again, repubics didn't read it, they read junk written by Dick Morris and Ann Coulter. And now, we, Americans, will pay the price.

Let me say, I will never again take part in any poll. Polls enable the opposing party to know your party affiliation, your opinions, income, race, religion, etc.

For the past year, we've been told this race would be close - as if someone had a crystal ball. Count me amongst some of the previous posters who've suggested the books were cooked.

It's no accident that in almost every state, the persons responsible for compiling each states votes were almost entirely Democrat. Add to that the story about our votes being counted in Spain. If it's true, perhaps that explains why Michelle chose to vacation there. True or not, I've also read that Soro's owns the company that counted our votes.

Never underestimate the power of voter fraud.

I think the fix was in long ago.

They call you a liar. The call you a felon. And you play nicey picey. This is what playing it safe gets you. It is now time for Republican leaders, elected and otherwise to speak out. Take off the gloves like Harry Reid. It is now time to pick up the mantle of birth certificate and other things and attack. I am sick of the wussy stupid republican jokes.

I grieve for my 11 yo son.

I grew up in an America that didn't promise me food or a roof over my head or clothes for my back. My America promised me things far more valuable. It promised me safety from oppression and freedom from tyranny. Last night those promises died.

I can not give my boy a better more promising world than I was born into, the first generation of Americans that can not do that for it's children and it breaks my heart more than any loss I have ever suffered.

Sorry Charles, but the only words I hear in my head right now are Bob Hope's:

Thanks #6. Saved me time.

I've been grieving today for the America that is gone. I knew that the millions of "new" Americans and the 0bamaphone people would eventually catch up with us.

I think that the senate debacle hurt me too. 19 women in the new senate. Who thinks that is a good thing, given the way women seem to love Govt Hubby? Plus I miss Allen West already.

The spending will continue and increase. The tax revenue will decrease, in spite of tax increases on the rich AND the middle class. The debt will reach 20 tril soon.

Let's all remember that the Republican party gave us Romney. Nice guy. But we didn't want him early in the primary season because he looked like another Rino McCain defeat, Bob Dole with fancy underwear.

So I never thought I would say it.

It's time to start the real Tea Party. emblem and flag are obvious. And if the Republicans ask nice and learn the real conservative handshake, we let them vote for us...!

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

No need for a rush
to judgment on Obamacare
Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/17/2014 9:28:37 AM     Post Reply
The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

You´re Wrong, Bart Ehrman

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

Obama shouldn´t embrace
race-rousing Sharpton
Chicago Tribune, by John Kass    Original Article

It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the
Titanic’s New Captain
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/14/2014 7:08:54 AM     Post Reply
The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

No, The Obamacare Debate

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

Obamacare:They Shoot Horses

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate 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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

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'
