BARACK OBAMA REELECTED

U.S. President Barack Obama won another four years in office on Tuesday night – convincing narrow majorities of voters in key battleground states that the ailing U.S. economy wasn’t his fault and that “Republican” presidential nominee Mitt Romney didn’t have a prescription to make their lives any better.

Which let’s face it … isn’t that far from the truth.

The only problem?  Obama’s plan – more spending, money-printing and tax hikes – is likely to make things much, much worse.

Despite chronically high unemployment, sluggish economic growth and skyrocketing deficits, Obama nonetheless managed to pick up critical wins in swing states like Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.  He also captured narrow victories in Florida, Ohio and Virginia – all states that Romney absolutely had to win in order to reclaim the White House for “Republicans.”

In the days leading up to the election, Romney supporters challenged polling data that showed Obama with fragile leads in many of these swing states – insisting that the GOP nominee was poised to pick up as many as 300 Electoral College votes.

That clearly didn’t happen – even though Romney and Obama were running neck-and-neck in the nation’s popular vote (each receiving roughly 50 million votes, at last count).

Without counting Florida, Obama had amassed more than 300 Electoral College votes compared to Romney’s 203 – meaning that the GOP nominee barely improved on the performance of U.S. Sen. John McCain in 2008.  Additionally, Republicans lost three U.S. Senate seats – although they did maintain control of the U.S. House of Representatives (for whatever that’s worth).

Romney called Obama shortly after midnight and conceded the race – wishing the victor well and urging him to work with Congressional Republicans.

Do we foresee that happening?  Of course not …

As terrible as an Obama reelection is for U.S. taxpayers, we’re not convinced that a Romney administration would have treated them much better (which is why this website endorsed former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson’s candidacy).  In fact Romney proposed massive spending increases – and refused to support long-overdue spending cuts like those proposed by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.

Nobody here is gonna tell me Romney is a right wing crazy.

However, the the point can be legitimately made that re-elected dude is a left wing commie pinko, right?

Don’t try to deny it! LOL!

What we’re looking at here is that we now have enough peeps in this country that like lefty stuff and free stuff and cradle-to-grave guvmint control and nannying that they can vote themselves largess from said guvmint.

I’m not optimistic that Obama/Reid will get us off the edge of the financial cliff. And it won’t be the Republican House that will be standing in the way of the “fix,” they will have their hands full keeping us from going over the cliff faster.

Stay tuned, libtards, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. I never thought we’d see “Jimmy Carter II & III,” but that’s what we’ve got.

The economy had been sent into the ditch by Bush and needed a couple of years to bottom out. That has happened, and slow but steady improvement has been underway for many months. That pace will pick up in 2013, and would have regardless of who won. Housing and retail are showing strength and consumer confidence is up.

You can stop Tea tards with the Carter comparisons because unlike Carter, OBAMA WON A SECOND TERM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

President Obama won – that’s a fact. Now Obama haters have to get over it, and Obama lovers quit gloating. The US Senate and the House have to work together – because it is AMERICA’S FUTURE and our own futures that are at stake. If we don’t quit calling each other libtards, fucktards, commies, nuts, etc, and start trying to figure out how to work together, we are doomed. People have fought for generations so that you could speak freely, so please try to speak wisely when you exercise that right. We dishonor the Americans who gave their lives for our right to voice our opinions when we cheapen speech with hatred, name calling and denigration of others who don’t think like us, or look like us. Sure we can disagree, but we owe fellow Americans respect and courtesy. We also owe our country our best efforts to compromise (both parties) in the best interest of our country.
I know Big T is hurting and I feel sorry for him. I hope he will be back tomorrow with the attitude of “we have to make this work”, because frankly, we don’t have any other choice.
Now I will stop preaching, but I do feel good tonight about America’s future. God bless our President and God bless America.

You are insinuating that FITS worked against Romney and that FITS has tremendous influence throughout the entire United States? If that is the case, you are giving FITS great stature and much credit. Do you really want to do that? I thought you hated FITS?
Please quit with all your gloom and doom and implied threats against President Obama. That accomplishes nothing. Unless you want to try to help America heal and move forward, start looking for solutions and rooting for the President of America to do a good job. If you don’t do that, you are irrelevant.

You guys are ridiculous. Big T is a fits sock puppet. Ignore him.

Communist? Frank, I think you need an 8th grade western civilization or remedial economics class. TARP was proposed and passed by the Bush Administration and the auto bailout was, too. If it’s a reference to the AHCA, it affects a small number of Americans, hardly a command economy.

And for you to ask for gracious behavior now would suggest you skipped English, too. Look up irony.

What you guys are experiencing is the five stages of grief. Last few weeks I’ve watch Frank, Colonel and the rest of this online clown car in the first stage – denial. No matter what the polling showed, they continued to promise a Romney victory. Today we’re seeing the second stage – anger. Angry that Americans are lazy, commies, stupid, insert pejorative here:_______. I expect accusations of voter fraud next. Soon they’ll accept that Republicans have lost the popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections which will ironically led them to the next stage – bargaining/rationalization. They’ll tell themselves that if they had just nominated a more conservative candidate, they would have won. The next stages, depression and acceptance, are not going to happen. Rather, they’ll cue up hearings and prosecutions on Beghazi and the talk of impeachment will begin anew.

Let’s hope I’m wrong. Obama is by nature a wuss. The Republicans can get 90% of what they want on budget deals.

The Colonel November 7, 2012 at 7:41 am

Narrow that brush a little Skippy – I never thought Romney would win, as much as I wish he would have.

It was fun watching “wonder bread” rack up votes in the early returns but you won’t find anywhere that I predicted a victory except in a statement that if the record turnout SC experienced occurred across the country Obama would be in trouble. The “turn out” turned out to be lower nationally this time.

In the national election nobody won; We’ve got a divided Congress, a divisive president and a looming fiscal disaster. You’re probably right about hearings on Benghazi – it may well result in some vacancies in the administration beyond the normal second term “step downs”. Frankly if half of what is being reported is true some asses need to burn but it would be hard to make the case that the president is one of them. Voter fraud – probably no more than usual, I loved the Obama mural in the polling place in PA and the Election official wearing the Obama hat in Chicago.

Locally:

76% of the lemmings in Richland County still voted straight ticket Democrat but the penny tax still failed.

The porcine one – Ol’Jakie got his fat ass handed to him by a write in.

Gloria Tinubu was soundly defeated by a bad but still better than her Rice.

The Poverty Pimp got elected again – proving gerrymandering is both alive and well and also effective.

Joe Wilson beat Daffy Duck.

Scott, Duncan, Gowdy and Mulvaney all won.

Haley’s eventual replacement will be running on a two person ticket.

Reply
The Colonel November 7, 2012 at 9:45 am

Petey – the reason AKs are so prevalent (100,000,000 world wide) is that the Soviet Union and China gave them away like day old bread. I’ve traveled several places where you can pick one up for $10 US. Brand new from the Gov’t manufacturer they sell for about $180 (M-16s go for about $650 and we’ve still sold 8,000,000 of them)

I’m not a fan of the M16/M4 but have carried one for almost 3/5ths of my life and can guarantee you that with a modicum of care it is a reliable and deadly little pee shooter. It does require substantially more care than an AK – it is also substantially more accurate than the AK.

The 7.62×39 bullet is a more effective killer than the 5.56 but not when fired from an AK – put it in a Ruger Ranch or another well-made rifle and you’ve got a deadly tack driver.

I would carry a HK G3 in 7.62×58 if allowed but these days the freaking armorer keeps giving me a POS Beretta.

But main thing is the TEA Partiers got their brainwashed asses kicked for the main part in the Upstate.

Those petition candidates mostly lost in the Uptate and by a lot in Spartanburg where incumbents won (by & large)—Rita,Glen Reese, etc. where the rabid Spartanburg TEA Party space cadets heavily fronted anti-incumbents & think everybody should think like them and BY GOSH, they want to shove their dogma down your throat becasue they know more than everyone else.

Hey Russ Cassell:

How about your statement that this year would be the “Year of the Petition Candidate”??????

Every damn prediction that windbag makes gets shot full of holes

1. “Gas will be $5/gallon in the Upstate by Memorial Day 2012” = WRONG!!! – Gas actually went DOWN prior to Memorial Day 2012 and is trending down presently
2. “If I get back on FM, my show will DOMINATE the dial in the Upstate” = WRONG!!! – That windbag got 3rd place ONCE and averages 5th-7th place every Arbitron period
3. “2012 will be the Year of the Petition candidate in SC” = WRONG!!! Petition mostly got their asses whipped this time around

But I can tell you one thing

He will fuck you over in a heartbeat. His own relatives won’t vote for him.

South Carolina, stop the love affair with the crazies on the right. The GOP is bad for you on some many levels.

Start thinking about your life and your career and what party has your interests at heart. It’s the Dems. Unless your are super wealthy, and can afford health insurance or to be able to pay as you go, unless you are rolling in money, which 99% on us on this site are not, you need to vote Democrat. If you become injured or disabled or your world collapses economically, at least the Dems will lend a helping hand. The GOP wants to destroy your safety net.

Come back home, South Carolina. Come back to the Democratic Party. The party of your ancestors.

As a proud Independant, I can’t go along with the national Democratic party line but if you are talking most pragmatic Democrats on the state level, I would tend to agree with you.

Not hardly, the only real difference between racists in the Republican party and racists in the Democratic party is that Democrats pretend to be offened when someone talks about “darkies”.

It’s the Neocon’s that lost the election, no one else.

As I stated back when Mitt started ripping on the gov’t check recepients openly, the Neocon GOP has managed to be so incompetent as to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. They managed to alienate several crucial tertiary groups(like soft core libertarians) and ignored the lessons of those competent before them in coalition building. It one regard Obama has done something not done since FDR, win an election despite a bad economy.

Hopefully this will be the beginning of the GOP’s final decay to Whig status.(but probably not)

This was almost expected. Neocons replayed the same card from 2008 by nominating a shill to run against New Deal 2.0. They did all this by isolating that portion of the voting bloc with libertarian leanings, who in protest likely went with the more hip candidate if they decided to vote at all. In all there was no more difference between the two in that one is white and the other half white. The welfare/warfare empire (neofeudal serfdom/neocolonialism) remains intact and looks set to have 4 more glorious years.

Now let’s bring the failure to provide military support in Benghazi full strength. He may have won the election, but when the full report comes out that he failed to protect our citizens and ignored three pleas begging for support by one of our military members, if Hillary (who will run on the 2016 ticket) fails to fall on another Obama sword, he may leave the office under rules of impeachment.

Settle down people. You have got Obama in the White Hose for 4 more years. You also have a GOP controlled House. Gridlock! The only time the GOP is worth a shit is when the other party holds the presidency. (Examples: 1994 GOP congress with Bill Clinton as President.) Anyone here who thinks we are better off now, or in 2008, than we were in 1998 is a damned fool.
Now the *only* thing that Obama did different from just continuing Dubya’s policies was Obamacare. Lest you believe that National Healthcare/ Socialised Medicine/whatever you want to call it, is something dreamed up by Obama and his commie mentors…the idea has been being pushed on America by Democrats and “progressives” since Roosevelt. “That’s TEDDY Roosevelt, beetchez!””
Bbbbbut, Romney and the GOP were going to repeal Obamacare if they got in power, right?
Yeah, believe that, playa!”
“Not withstanding the ugly *fact* that Obamacare is based on …ROMNEYcare; the GOP also promised to repeal the New Deal and the Great Society. I haven’t really kept up of late, so maybe BigT or some of you other GOP stalwarts can let me know how thats going.”

Some of you (Sid, Frank, BigT) will now need to become productive members of society. I have plans for each of you:

1) Sid: Take a test for social retardation and do whatever the test says to do.

2) Frank: Stop cursing so much. Try not to do/write the same thing over and over. And have a great day.

3) BigT: Oh my…..I’m at a loss here. Maybe if you donate your brain to science, we can stop you from ever happening again.

Ummm….no. They can keep on keeping on. Nothing changed. If Romney had won, the would have to either get jobs or learn to rationalize their support of the EXACT SAME POLICIES that Obama had. Like they did when W was POTUS.

I didn’t realize you had to take a test to qualify for welfare. I also didn’t realize that only welfare recipients are “productive members of society”. See, where I grew up at it was explained to me that you have to Occupy A Desk. In lieu of that, I Occupied a Hammer and Nails for many years. I now work in the office utilizing parametric modeling software that I don’t think the average welfare recipient would be capable of utilizing.

You have a great day as well, Sarah. Lord knows there won’t be too many of those left with Oshitforbrains in charge. :)

Thomas November 7, 2012 at 9:39 am

Ok, I will be honest. I thoroughly enjoyed 2008 so much, I could careless about who or what skeletons were on Obama’s closet. I hate the Clinton’s and especially PIAPS. Back in the day, it was not uncommon for me to hit Wellesley College during visiting hours, and maybe stay late until Monday night football games were over….the RA was usually somewhere else, so I was told, so me and a bud had some fun with the second floor, the first floor too.

Anyway. What I heard then was this. When the William Jefferson Clinton won his second term as Gov of Arkansas, PIAPS came into town and gave a talk at Wellesley, being an alum and all. She boasted THEN that Bill would be President and she would be the first female President of the United States. So you see, after hearing about her from the shagged, and how much they all adored her, it really did not matter to me until 1992, then the radar came on. I really hated their politics, but man, they sure were warm on a cold Massachusetts night.

I wanted PIAPS to lose the election in 2008 so much, I cared not who became President. Unfortunately, when one is consumed with so much disdain to Mrs Clinton, the Pig In A Pantsuit, that they neglect their due dilligence, then I get what I deserve.

What PIAPS is to politics as a first female, President Obama is as the first black President. Being first, they usually get a pass on scrutiny because of the barriers and history involved. So it came to be. No real reporting on his background, qualifications, political philosophy. After 4 years, we see more and more what makes the man tick.

Romney, to me, is just in love with himself, and forced his way in with his money. I am glad his is gone, too far left for me. His Veep choice really said it all, a conservative Catholic that somehow balances his ticket? snicker….lol.

So Obama is my President for the next 4 years. He is better than PIAPS, and after 8 years of Obama, America will not hire PIAPS in 2016. This is why I am glad he won, so PIAPS will NEVER be the first female President in US History.

My name is Thomas, and I approve this message.

BTW—fuck you Knotts!

The DOW is currently down nearly 400 points. I wish that I could honestly say that this was Oshitforbrains fault.

Unfortunately the reality is, the Repukelitards are likely to block (or more likely fain blocking) TARP2 and QE12. As soon as one or both pass the dow will rocket to near 15,000 because the gubmint is bailing out more businesses that are “Too big to fail”. Another words, the gubmint is protecting corporate (read “my buddies”) profits.

What a crock of fucking shit.

Nation Spends $2.5 Billion on Nothing

NEWS ANALYSIS (The Borowitz Report) — One day after the costliest Presidential election in U.S. history, Americans awoke to the ugly realization that the nation had spent $2.5 billion with absolutely nothing to show for it.

“Four years ago, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States, and that is still the case,” says Professor Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota. “The only difference is that we as a nation are out $2.5 billion.”

Mr. Logsdon claims that America’s system of egregious political spending “has made us the laughingstock of the world,” arguing, “Even Greece would know better than to blow through money like that.”

But “not so fast,” says Tracy Klugian, President of the Negative Advertising Association of America, which represents the nation’s leading producers of political attack ads.

“When people complain about how expensive these political campaigns are, they’re forgetting about the millions of Americans who are employed making negative ads,” he says. “Say what you will about lies, vitriol and character assassination, they’re job creators.”

In fact, Mr. Klugian says, America’s costly and interminable campaigns are the nation’s most reliable source of employment: “They gave a completely unskilled person like Mitt Romney a steady job for eight years.”

Acknowledging that the $2.5 billion spent this year was a “tidy sum,” Mr. Klugian says, “If we took all the money we spend on political ads and used it to educate our children and feed the poor, we wouldn’t be America.”

There are no moderate (c)onservative Republicans left, but everyone remaining thinks they are “moderate”. “Moderate” actually means “centrist” means RINO/DINO.

The religious Right = the GOP, so it wins where that group controls the ground, such as the South.

What it needs to understand is that being an Old White Folks Party it will win where OWF dominate, but some lies must be told for it to appeal to anyone else.

If the crazies were SMARTER, they’d be able to restrain their ranting in the primaries, LOOK moderate, then spring the trap after the election and THEN fuck the hell out of everyone else.

BigT is the modern GOP. Ask him, he’ll tell you so.

If the modern GOP are willing to retain the House and swap back and forth in the Senate, they don’t actually NEED the White House. The President does NOT run the US.

Obammy can’t do shit with the GOP controlling the House, which VINDICATES Karl Roves planning! Rove then drank his own Kool-Aid and thought Romney was viable.
Serious GOP contenders held out for 2016 since four years don’t mean shit in the big-boy political world.
