On Thursday's The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer played a montage of liberal comedians poking fun at election night coverage with the jokes overwhelmingly targeting Republicans and conservatives. "Turns out it's not all bad news for the Republicans. I guess it seems depression is covered by ObamaCare," quipped Tonight Show host Jay Leno. "A big night for the Democrats, Obama won the electoral vote and the popular vote. Mitt Romney on the other side won the unpopular vote," Late Show host David Letterman derided Romney.

Someday those that are laughing and making fun of Romney will someday wish he had been the one elected instead of Obama . After he destroys this country, and the freedom that we enjoy no longer exist. They will long for the old days.
Nothing will educate such mockers but seeing and experiencing for themselves the consequences of Leftist fantasy ideology. Many, though not all, are capable of learning, but they are going to have to do it the hard way. Too bad the rest of us have to go along for the ride with them - but if Obama manages, as I think he will, to bring Leftism and the Leftist establishment into disrepute, the sea of troubles into which he is steering the ship of state may prove in the end to have been worth it.
Leftism, of which Obama is the spokesperson and the liberal establishment the cheerleaders, is founded upon a fundamental misunderstanding of reality. Schemes and projects based upon such false assumptions cannot possibly achieve their intended goals. They are bound to create unintended and undesirable consequences.
It should be interesting to see how many who are laughing and exulting now will be doing so in four years. Actually it may be considerably sooner when the laughter ceases. The Obama administration is a house of cards, all talk, wishful thinking and make believe thus far unmolested by reality. That is what has his supporters fooled. They are like sleepwalkers - but the time of their awakening is almost here. They won't be laughing then.
They own it now. There will be no compromise from the Democrats. They have waited too long for this. There is too much codified law now to even begin a defense not to mention the demographics and stupidity of an electorate conditioned from birth in this evil ideology. This is a place we've never been in our modern history but, there are a lot of fallen societies in world history that have.
"Spiking the football" is what we used to call bad sportsmanship. Even worse than being a poor loser, being a poor winner, a taunter, a braggart doing things that turns any competition personal... so personal that revenge can become a driver. revenge as a motive leads to malicious intent and dirty play.
It seems the more low brow the competitor, the more they taunt their advisaries. My suspicion is that "fair play" and "good sportsmanship" were an extension of chivalry. Cheating at the joust in front of ladies and gentlemen wouldn't be good for social standing. Even rules for fair play in war were established to prevent wholesale slaughter.
The fortunate among us were taught the rules of fair play and good sportsmanship as the means to keep competition honorable and bloodless. All I can say about CNN is, they must have been raised in some gutter.
Keep digging your financial grave, CNN. The sooner y'all are finished the better. Piers Morgan? Andy Cooper? Roland Martin? Soldad O what's her name? You've got to be kidding me. At least MSNBC is entertaining -- albeit it the Siegfried and Roy kind of way.
I'm thinking how blessed Mitt Romney is today because he can't be blamed for this country's financial downfall. After eight years Obama and his happy throng will own their failure. There's no way the US can sustain the debt Obama has accumulated in the last four years. One day Romney will know 11/6/12 was the luckiest day of his life.
if i woke up tomorrow and heard that someone shot candy crowley or michael moore or bill maher or chris mathews or ed shultz to name but a few, i think i'd be able to keep my mourning well under control.
That popular vote victory is a subject I'd drop if I were them. It tends to lead the conversation toward Acorn, Jim Moran and so on. Reminds me I need to check to be sure the Donks aren't voting my dead parents via absentee ballot. ... Should we be putting out form language for people's wills specifying that executor is requested to remove name from voter rolls?
Let them laugh. As I recall, it was Marie Antoinette who said "Let them eat cake" just before the normally sedate and humble masses rose up, broke out the guillotine and commenced what is now a footnote in history. Must say I will not shed a tear as these cretins meet their sorry but deserved end. And they need to understand as well, that even their spawn will reap the whirlwind of destruction that their parents brought upon them.
Romney would have made a fine president, one capable of leading us out of this fiscal mess. The one that was elected is so serious about avoiding this fiscal cliff that he is going to freaking Burma next week. You own it Dems.
If you thought Fox and MSNBC were the only place you could find opinionated news hosts delivering brutal attacks on politicians, you’ve never seen North Dakota’s “6:30 Point of View” with Chris Berg. Last week, Berg absolutely ripped apart Democrats Senator Heidi Heitkamp and Congressman Collin Peterson for declining his repeated interview requests. Berg began by thanking the state’s Republican senator, John Hoeven for sitting down for an interview with him earlier that day. “You have to give him kudos for coming in, taking your questions on Facebook, answering the tough questions about what you want to hear about,” Berg
Conservative filmmaker and activist James O’Keefe confronted the former U.S. attorney who prosecuted him in an amusing new video. O’Keefe was attempting to give a copy of his bestselling book to his old nemesis Jim Letten, now a dean at Tulane University School of Law. In the book, O’Keefe alleges that Letten’s close ties to Sen. Mary Landrieu and President Barack Obama influenced his decision to prosecute O’Keefe. In January 2010, James O’Keefe and three men were charged by Letten’s office with malicious intent to damage Landrieu’s office phone systems. O’Keefe was sentenced to three years’ probation, 100 hours of
On August 26, Army Staff Sgt. Ty Carter became the 5th living Medal of Honor (MOH) recipient from the War in Afghanistan. Carter earned the MOH for his actions on October 3, 2009 as he ran under heavy enemy fire to supply ammunition to three fellow soldiers pinned down in a disabled Humvee outside of Combat Outpost Keating in Afghanistan. He ran "through that deadly gauntlet three times to get supplies to [Sgt. Bradley Larson, Spc. Stephan Mace, and Sgt. Justin Gallegos]." In awarding the MOH to Carter, President Obama recalled presenting Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha with the MOH for
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry says chemical weapons were used in Syria and is accusing President Bashar Assad of destroying evidence. Ratcheting up criticism of Syria´s alleged chemical weapons use, Kerry called last week´s attack a "moral obscenity" that should shock the conscience of the world. He says the US has additional information about the attack and will make it public in the days ahead. Kerry says shelling the affected area afterward was not the action of a government trying to cooperate with UN investigators trying to assess what happened. The alleged chemical weapons attack on Aug. 21 that killed hundreds
The eyes of the city were on Chicago Public Schools “Safe Passage” routes Monday morning as a 28-year-old man was shot along one of the routes and a 14-year-old boy was shot to death near another one, the day before school starts. The 14-year-old boy was shot and killed within a block of a welcoming elementary school, Melody Stem School , 3937 W. Wilcox. It’s at least the third fatal shooting along or near a Safe Passage route since mid-August. About 12:20 a.m. Sunday, the boy, Lavander Hearnes, was standing outside in the 4000 block of West Wilcox Street with
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that he’s all in on allowing states to approve sports gambling, which could bring generate hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenue for his state. Sitting in as a special co-host on the “Boomer and Carton in the Morning” show in New York, Mr. Christie said that it is “ridiculous” that New Jersey cannot legalize gambling on sporting events and that his administration is waging a court battle that he predicts eventually will be decided by the Supreme Court. “I think New Jersey is going to be victorious ultimately,” the Republican governor
An interview with President Obama on Friday failed to lift the ratings of CNN´s new morning news program, according to preliminary numbers. Friday´s "New Day," which featured the interview with the nation´s chief executive, received no ratings bump -- and in fact posted numbers below the show´s average since it launched in June. The episode featuring the Obama interview averaged 280,000 total viewers, with 91,000 of them in the key 25-54 news demographic. That´s compared to the show´s averages to date of 332,000 total viewers and 122,000 viewers 25-54.
A Second World War veteran lay helpless on the floor of his sheltered accommodation for two and a half days after the council cut his intercom to save just 42 pence a day. Great-grandfather and former Desert Rat Harold Lee, 99, was terrified he would die alone after falling face down and finding he was totally unable to get up or call for help. An alarm he was carrying was desperately out of reach when he collapsed and no one came to check on him because his intercom had been disconnected in a cost-cutting drive.
Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to address reporters at 2 p.m. amid questions about whether U.S.-led air strikes are imminent against Syria. White House press secretary Jay Carney’s briefing was pushed back from 12:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., possibly to make time for Kerry. The last time Kerry made such an appearance was two weeks ago, when he denounced the violent crackdown by the Egyptian military as a “deplorable” and unnecessary escalation that represents a “serious blow” to peace and democracy. The next day, President Obama interrupted his vacation to announce that he was canceling joint military exercises with
DAMASCUS, Syria- A senior Syrian official said Monday that his country will defend itself against any international attack and will not be an easy target as the U.S. and other countries ramp up rhetoric in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack last week on a rebel-held neighborhood of the Syrian capital. In an interview with The Associated Press in Damascus, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad said airstrikes or other action against Syria would also trigger "chaos" and threaten worldwide peace and security. He spoke Monday as support for an international response was mounting if it is confirmed that
The nation´s largest active forest fire continued to burn at the edge of Yosemite National Park Monday, reaching 234 square miles and prompting multiple mandatory and advisory evacuations in the area to northwest of the park, officials said. At least 4,500 structures are threatened, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The fire was about 20 miles from the iconic Yosemite Valley, home to Half Dome, the Ahwahnee Hotel and Curry Village. "There is no imminent threat of any kind," said Tom Medema, a park spokesman. Overall the fire was 15% contained as of Monday at 7
So many jobs are coming to Houston top oil companies from around the world are building new office spaces to accommodate their new employees. In fact, banks are loaning money to companies even if the developers do not have a tenant. Texas’s economy is growing and grew 4.8% last year. They added 100,000 jobs and Houston alone could add 80,000 this year. Real estate firm CBRE Group, Inc. said there are 56 office buildings under construction in and around Houston. These buildings total at least 11 million square feet. Not only are they providing jobs for their employees, but they
Faces of Evil - that was the headline of the Australian Herald Sun when reporting the depraved murder of Aussie Christopher Lane. It is instructive to carry that theme further with a few more faces. (snip)There is an explosion of black mob violence. If you doubt that, read "White Girl Bleed A Lot" by Colin Flaherty. Across the country, degenerate people are violently attacking strangers in "the knockout game" ... just for ´fun´. Flash mobs swarm stores to plunder and pillage. They are eliminating the government middle-man and taking what they want directly.
I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the “Million Muslim March” planned in Washington D.C. on 9/11. If you haven’t, you can watch the group’s organizer refusing to denounce hateful groups like the Muslim Brotherhood here. Now in response to the march, a bunch of bikers are planning their own party in DC on 9/11…with two million people. Thousands of America’s patriotic bikers are organizing an enormous counter protest to the planned Million Muslim March on DC this Sept. 11. The Facebook Page, “2 Million Bikers to DC,” has over 18 thousand “likes,” as of Thursday morning and individual state chapters of riders
On Saturday, Martin Luther King III, son of the civil rights icon, used a rally that honored the 50th anniversary of the Reverend Doctor´s "I Have a Dream" to politicize and inject race into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, asserting he was killed because of the color of his skin. "Sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin´s mother and father remind us that far too frequently the color of one´s skin remains a license to profile, arrest, and to even murder with no regard to the content of one´s character," Martin Luther King III declared. "Regressive ´stand your ground´ laws must
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the jury verdict that freed the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was "questionable." But he isn´t sure it will have staying power in the public consciousness. Speaking on CBS´s Face the Nation, Powell said cases like Martin´s "blaze across the midnight sky" and are forgotten. The first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and first black secretary of state, Powell says America has come a long way toward racial equality 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.´s "I Have a Dream" speech. Powell recalled being refused service when trying to
In a statement released this morning, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham call for the U.S. to "take limited military actions in Syria." “Recent reports and information from Syria lend additional credibility to what has been clear since last week: Assad and his forces have once again used chemical weapons against civilians in Syria and are, in fact, escalating their use. Their recent massacre of hundreds of men, women, and children around Damascus clearly constitutes the commission of a war crime, and it is the responsibility of civilized nations everywhere to ensure that those responsible are held accountable," the statement reads. “Now
On This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, Cokie Roberts attacked the GOP’s recent slew of legislation increasing voting restrictions as “downright evil,” and argued that it threatened to undue the progress made since the civil rights movement. “Having grown up in the deep south in the era of Jim Crow, the difference is dramatic,” Roberts said. “The fact that Andy Young was Mayor of Atlanta and John Lewis is a member of Congress from Georgia, is a great testament to the fact that when you do something like pass a voting rights bill, that it makes a difference.
WEST MELBOURNE -- Investigators say a Brevard County pizza delivery man took action into his own hands -- shooting and killing a would-be robber. Investigators said Byron Park, a Domino´s employee, had just delivered a pizza to one of the rooms at the Days Inn off US-192 near Interstate 95. Park, 54, went back to his car, sat down and starting counting his money and tip, waiting for his next call for a delivery. That’s when investigators said 32-year-old Fredrick Kelly Jr. approached him with a knife, demanding money and threatening to kill him. Park pulled out his firearm and fired once toward Kelly,
On Thursday, November 21, 1963, a wealthy Dallas businessman was throwing a party. His name was Clint Murchison and he was big in the oil business, with additional interests in banking and publishing. His influential guest list included Richard Nixon, in Dallas on business for his clients the Coca Cola Company. Oil billionaire HL Hunt was also present along with Senator John Tower, Chase Manhattan banker John McCloy and Murchison’s particular friend, FBI director J Edgar Hoover. Into the gathering strode Vice President Lyndon B Johnson, accompanied by his Dallas mistress Madeleine Brown. He had left President Kennedy and those
The far right has gotten into a dangerous habit (well, many habits but we’ll focus on one for now). Those who claim to be guardians of conservative purity assume what they advocate is popular. Therefore, the explanations for failing to get what they want must be betrayal or cowardice by their party, lies by the media, or inarticulateness. They imagine if they speak in shrill tones and hammer the same message over and over again they will prevail — provided of course they are not betrayed, undermined and hobbled by their own elected leaders and the devious vast left-wing conspiracy.
The Obama administration hardened its stance against Syria´s regime and stepped up preparations for possible military action, saying it believed Damascus used chemical weapons in an offensive last week and rebuffing its offer to let United Nations officials inspect the affected areas. The White House, in statements issued by senior officials, signaled it wasn´t backing away from a showdown with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad despite apparent efforts by Damascus to ease tensions by letting U.N. inspectors visit areas near Damascus that were allegedly hit with chemical weapons. In recent days, the Pentagon has moved more warships into place in the eastern Mediterranean
The day after thousands rallied to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, the National Mall looks like a trash dump. The grass from the Lincoln Memorial to the World War II Memorial is covered Sunday with empty soda cans, water bottles, boxed lunches, newspapers, a broken chair and rally signs. The Reflecting Pool also was filled with trash. Although the trash cans were full along the expanse, the attendees did not attempt to leave their garbage near the bins. Instead, they left everything on the grass where they stood. On Saturday, prominent Democrats such as Attorney General
An Australian baseball player who was allegedly shot and killed at random while he was jogging wasn´t targeted because of his race or nationality, the prosecutor in charge of the case has said. -Snip] ´At this point, the evidence does not support the theory that Christopher Lane was targeted based upon his race or nationality,´ District Attorney Jason Hicks said in a statement on Friday. Hicks acknowledged that social media posts allegedly made by some of the defendants are racial in nature, but he said ´the evidence is insufficient to establish that race was the primary motive´ in Lane´s slaying.
