  1. Not a step, I think we just broke into a run. Nevertheless, things generally work out as they should. The liberals will be gloating for a while, but they only really win if we wallow in despair or give up. So, let’s not do that.

  2. [...] One last spasm of politics: [...]

  3. It doesn’t matter if he’s failed…he DIDN’T fail 2+2 = 5, and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, he evolved or is evolving or something on his position on gay marriage. Economy be damned, NDAA be damned, liberty be damned, just so long as homos can marry other homos, that is what makes the country great! GREAT! FORWARD! All hail the great Obama! ALL HAIL! FORWARD! /sarc

  4. At the moment, I am wallowing, and will do so for the day. Though, maybe “wallow” isn’t the right word. It’s more like trying to come to terms with the bus that hit me at 2am, when I stupidly checked the results. I should’ve gone back to sleep. Shell shocked and exhausted make for one long day.

  5. A great nation requires a great people.

  6. Amen Robert.

    I thought this morning “I believe we’re screwed” (and early markets agree) “But I hope I’m wrong, for my godchildren.”

  7. Message from America, 6 November, 2012: You can be a complete and abject failure when it comes to the job you’ve been hired to do.

    No getting around it.

    Obama has objectively been a failure, thus far. And 50% of American voters on Tuesday, chose actively to keep the failure.

  8. (continued) I think what threw some of us off, was not accepting that Americans are that far gone.

  9. I think 2 things really helped Obama.

    #1 He did a great job of convincing the people that the current state of the economy was Bush’s fault and way too many people think that the state of our economy is due to Bush policy and failure, not Obama’s.

    Obama has now inherited his own mess. My hope is that the American people aren’t dumb enough to continue to believe him when he blames Bush (although I won’t hold my breath on this-there seem to be a lot of dumb people in the electorate).

    Also, whoever runs for the democrats in 2016 is going to have hard time blaming Bush after 8 years of president Obama and likely 6 to the full 8 years of democratic senate control. Of course this candidate will likely still get lots of assists from the media.

    #2 I think Obama did a good job of demonizing Romney-I didn’t see it-and Obama managed to turn his voters out.

    I am curious who the viable DNC candidate is going to be. At this time it is hard to see one, but it is pretty clear they can’t run Biden and Hillary is going to be tarnished from Benghazi.

    The GOP has some young, capable candidates-however I suspect the DNC has them marked for tarnishment and once again they will get assists from the media.

    For now, I intend to grieve a bit, then hunker down and hope for the best. Hopefully the House can slow things down-although I doubt they will be able to pass anything meaningfully conservative or even centrist with the Narcissist in the White House and a bluer senate that still doesn’t do crap.

  10. I’m wallowing. I’m trying really hard to pull myself up by my boot straps or my flip flops…I went to dinner last night with my liberal friends who see this as the return of the “messiah” who will continue to support the gay agenda. I asked them if that would happen before or after he comes up with a budget, not to mention want I think of Obamacare.

    I must take a more active role in politics going forward…

  11. Given a choice between a failure and a success, 50% of American chose the failure. Only 48% chose the success.

    It’s true that a corrupt media demonized the success, and dragged the failure across the finish line, often lying for him. But that just raises the question: why would so many people buy that kind of media?

  12. I think we should press the Obamaphone Cult on how exactly they intend to sustain their unsustainable Culture of Entitlement.

  13. @VtheK

    Look at Levi’s solution. “We’ll get out of this debt, as soon as we get deep enough in debt.” That’s the answer.

  14. Detroit and New Orleans… coming to a city near you.

    This one is easy.

    Obama and the democrats will point to the GOP and blame them for why the magic money tree isn’t producing enough money. The media will gladly assist them in this goal.

  16. “[I think] you can be a complete and abject failure when it comes to the job you’ve been hired to do. By nearly any objective measurement [I choose], your performance can be failing. You can even be deemed by [some of] us and our own explicit assessment of you to have fallen far short of the requirements for the position you hold. Then, when a potential replacement [I like] comes along with not only the proven [to me] experience but also the precise formula [I believe is true] for correcting your failings and righting our path, you’ll still be rewarded with a continuation of your contract [because a majority of citizens/voters do not agree with my assessment of this situation].”
