So What Could Possibly Go Wrong
American Thinker, by C. Edmund Wright

Original Article

Posted By:Passion, 11/9/2012 8:41:51 AM

The story of the 2012 election is that voters still blame Republicans for systemic problems caused by liberalism, and yet they credit Obama for victories brought about by applied conservatism. Now how does this happen? The answer is both a short story and part of a longer festering narrative. Consider: during the Republican primary season, half of Mitt Romney's consultants told him to call Newt Gingrich the devil. The other half told him to merely to claim that the devil worshiped Gingrich. Then these same sorcerers all told Mitt to call Barack Obama "a nice guy."

So so so much money left on the table by the campaign, thanks to the consultant class and their squishy strategies.

Funny....the Dems never worry about running the most extreme leftists possible but are constantly advising us to put up more moderate Republicans.

Perhaps we should coach our own team.

Just a thought.

Hope everyone who is happy with the election is enjoying obama's stock market. If the tea party can't become mainstream after whats coming in the next two years we should all just apply for welfare. Sappy republicans who would call obama a nice guy are not welcome.

And I say, "Why do you believe the polls about this, when you already know these people are in the tank for Obama?" We are living in a constant Propaganda War. One of the fundamental rules of Propaganda is make sure your opponent has bad information. I don't believe any of it.

I find Mr. Wright's suggestions that the right needs to move more aggressively to "correct the record" and that "the truth matters" interesting, but in the wake of November 6, somewhat ridiculous. For more than 50 years, the left has been working and has had considerable success at taking over our education system. The result is that a majority of our population is not only uneducated, but essentially ineducable. Keeping in mind that, in the 60s, the Jesuits took a hard left and never looked back, it is still useful to remember one of their most cherished maxims, Give me a child until the age of six and I will give you the man."

C. Edmund Wright's thinking parallels my own.

No overall strategy, combined with the traditional Moderate GOP "Kick Me" signs worn proudly on Moderate GOP behinds. Sheesh.

We need someone who will fight for conservatives. Remember Ronald Reagan was considered an easy candidate for the Dems to defeat.

I have been a California 'decline to state' for at least 20 years. I actually registered as a Republican, proudly, this election. I cringed at the campaign sometimes, was immensely proud we could put up a good man as a candidate, I seethed at the vulgarity and crassness and lies of the left and was so frustrated with the media. But sad to say, if the 'campaign' can't figure out what do to to GOTV, and can't figure out how to challenge the other side's behavior and call a spade a space (no racial inference intended), and calls Obama 'a good man', and can't elucidate policies, I'm going back to being an independent.

Can we fire the advisors to the Republican Party?
Please?
Karl Rove: fire him.
Reince Priebus: fire him.
John Boehner: fire him.
"Not a choice, but an echo."
What we wanted was a choice.
What we got was "socialism lite."
What we saw was a savage and unprincipled war, practiced by the left, on everything which is good and decent and honorable in this country. No attack was too scurrilous. No incident was too petty. Every honest observation was treated as an attack.

No remark by any Democrat was ever pounced on, magnified, and blown up to a billboard. None of Zippy's gaffes became the talk of comedy shows. demonRats say stupid stuff all the time; their remarks are never thrown back in their faces; they are regarded as honorable despite their dishonor.

But the Republicans: they cannot fight. They just sit by, passively, while they are savaged.
You can't win that way. Once Romney had obtained sufficient delegates to win the nomination, ALL the other candidates should have banded together to back him, and run ads blasting the WH attack machine. But no, this did not happen. Instead the pubbies just let the Dems divide them, and conservatives stayed home. In droves.

What a pathetic excuse for a party!

The only way to get your message out to the braindead masses that vote for Demon-RATS is through the MSM.

The MSM is a fully owned subsidiary of the DNC.

Not that it matters any more. As soon as NØbama makes about 20,000,000 illegals into citizens before the 2014 elections, every red state will permanently turn blue. And you know every one of them will vote Demon-RAT from now on.

Game over. The Demon-RATS won. Just hope that NØbamacare provides free KY Jelly for all the times we are going to have to just bend over and take it from now on...

My only joy is knowing that we at least know what is coming. Imagine the shock on all the people who actually voted for NØbama who don't have a clue what they are in for...

The recent Twitter kerfuffle between Matt Drudge and the Obama/media/academic complex over the ObamaCare tax demonstrates in plain view and without question something many of us have known for years: while the organized left insist that they are the only ones smart enough to run the world, they remain astonishingly ignorant of how it works. They’re even ignorant of how the most fundamental parts of laws that they champion operate.

In typical establishment fashion, Reince Priebus and the wizards at the RNC have looked at the last presidential nomination cycle and learned the wrong lessons. They have concluded that not allowing Mitt Romney a smooth coronation was the problem, and they are out to make sure their anointed one never has to face that again. As such, the prescriptions for change recently announced by Priebus will only make things worse. This is what happens when a national party is isolated from -- and igorant of -- its nation.

Sports offers teachable insights into the leftist mindset, and even cursory observations verify that everything is political with these folks.

While the Republican establishment was obsessing over the government shutdown, the evils of Ted Cruz, and the latest Jurassic media poll designed specifically to fool them, they remained blind to the massive iceberg that was about to nearly destroy the McAuliffe money machine campaign. As such, they missed a golden opportunity to nudge Ken Cuccinelli across the finish line -- an opportunity the GOP base understood. While Michael Barone did not say this in so many words, these are the inescapable conclusions of his Virginia race analysis.

In contemplating the bizarre, incompetent, and feckless behavior of House Speaker John Boehner over the years, I am reminded of the signature scene from the 1969 Western comedy Support Your Local Sheriff: In it,the sheriff (James Garner) ridicules dim-witted prisoner Joe Dandy (Bruce Dern), deriding him and maintaining full control even though his jail has no bars. The money scene is from 2:40 through 3:30: The cell on the right is yours. We don't have any bars yet...but we're gonna operate just as if the bars are there...so while you're in this jail, you stay on that side of the line,

There has been a lot of conversation, and rightfully so, about the ramifications of the Obama administration´s potentially illegal delay of the employer mandate portion of the train wreck known as ObamaCare. Many are saying that this proves that ObamaCare will fail and go down as one of the all-time "told you so" moments in political history -- while others insist that the delay is a stroke of political brilliance and/or exemplary caution needed for such an undertaking.

As you probably have heard, a few days ago Bill Maher shocked his liberal guest -- and much of the world -- by stating very correctly and succinctly that it is "liberal bullsh_t" to equate Christianity and Islam with respect to terror. The bluntness, not to mention the shocking accuracy of the statement from this particular source, had the social media universe all lit up over the weekend. It was surely my first "fist pump" ever in response to Maher.

Shortly after the 2009 Fort Hood terror attack was carried out by Nidal Hasan, Martha Raddatz and Diane Sawyer of ABC News openly lamented that the killer´s name was not something like Smith. They pretended to overhear this sentiment from some military wife at the fort, but I suspect otherwise -- that they were pulling the liberal trifecta of lying, projecting, and conflating victims with experts -- all simultaneously.

If anyone still doubts the Gallup Poll -- and common sense -- showing that Mitt Romney is way ahead in the polls, all they had to do was watch the third presidential debate to have their minds changed. Romney put the game into the "four corners" stall, running out the clock while turning away numerous chances for easy slam-dunks and taking care not to stop the clock

   

 



 
Obama 'Inherited' Obama

"Did they come in and inherit a tough situation? Absolutely." This from Paul Ryan, in the worst moment of the VP debate. Barack Obama is going to lose in a blow-out, and the debates have certainly padded that margin. Having said that, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan left "some easy money on the table" through the first two debates that they now need to collect. The Romney/Ryan mandate will be even bigger, and effective governing afterwards will be more viable, if they but correct the media narrative of what Obama "inherited."

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
