Murrelet - you never disappoint. You're a sore winner as well as a sore loser.
Let's all hope the country doesn't come out of this as BIG TIME losers as well. The President has basically gotten a do-over to show that he can actually govern. If they don't pass a budget for another four years; if they run up another four trillion dollars of debt; if nothing gets done AGAIN, he won't be able to blame it on Bush, or blame it on the Republicans, or blame it on race. He needs to forge alliances, COMPROMISE, and make positive contributions. It is possible, but if he - as is typical with the Democrats - lets his own arrogance get in the way of getting things done, his only "contributions" to the country historically will be ObamaCare, high umemployment, low economic growth and a boatload of additional debt.
But paraphrasing "Viper" in Top Gun - we need to remember that after it's all over we're all on the same team. That applies here as well. We're all American citizens (well - at least most of us are) with a vested interest in the success and failure of this country. The people have spoken and Mr. Obama remains President of ALL THE PEOPLE.
Personally, I characterize his first term as a failure. based primarly on the current state of our economy. That's why I voted for his opponent. But I am certainly rooting for him to be successful the second time around. But he will need to actually be a LEADER - rather than simply a good campaigner with an effective election/reelection machine.
He's got another chance to win - for himself historically, and for the country. I hope he doesn't blow it.
Yes The Best Man Won!!! America has spoken loudly, and our current sitting President has been awarded another four years. I am not a political pundit by a long shot, and neither have I ever claimed to be one. But what I do know is that if Candidate Mitt Romney had won, minorities would have been in big trouble. They (Republicans) have from the very beginning lied, distorted, manufactured, and had been dealing their cards from the bottom of the deck in an all out effort to unseat our current sitting Commander N Chief by any means necessary, for their very own private selfish political gain. Let me be straight to the point.
This Republican Candidate had no intention to so call bring back the economy, but only to further line his pockets along with a few others. The wealthy would have become wealthier, and the poorer would have been poorer. I sit, and I think about these things, and to this day wonder why in the HECK citizens here in this State or any Southern State would have voted Republican anyway. I am quite sure that all of the citizens whom voted Republican in the State Of Georgia do not make over 500,000 dollars, or 250,000 dollars, not even 100,000 dollars a year. Do you honestly believe that the Republican Party wants to help you? No they ONLY help themselves. Create more jobs? Yeah Right!!! Create more jobs, and outsourced them to other countries for .99 cents an hour, or .99 cents per day. In their opinion, that is the American way. The republicans use empty rhetoric to make people believe that the democrats are the reason for the collapsed economy, when it was their very own party who got us in this mess to begin with.
From the very first day that President Barrack Obama was sworn into Office, I heard people like Rush Limbaugh say "I HOPE HE FAILS"!!! I heard Republicans in the house say that they will make an all out effort to get President Obama out of office, or make him a one term President. I saw the Birther scandal headed by Donald Trump, I saw and heard the racist remarks about President Obama, I see cartoons in the news papers, and tabloids that depict our President as a Monkey, a chimp, and other statements that I saw disrespectful, and out right repugnant.
Even a member of the Republican Party candidly stated that this election was not about political views, or about the President being able to run this country. It did not even base it upon the content of his character. But it was based solely and only because of the color of this sitting President's Skin, and I find it despicable. This day and time, America Live styles are changing, and are changing for a better tomorrow. This is no longer that 1930's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's or 90's. Time has changed and whether or not you like it, it has. This is a younger generation who no longer looks at a person's skin color to see whether or not he or she is fit to hold a political office or qualified to for a certain employment position. The right extreme conservative views rest with the older generation. I strongly believe that this Republican Party will eventually fizzle away just like the Tea Party, and America would no longer have to deal with extreme conservative views that this past election has succumb to.
Now that the election is over, I can only pray, and hope that we as Americans can at the very least try to put away your differences, join in, and help make America actually become what we all claim it to be.... "THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD"!!!!! GOD Bless you all.......
"The misogynists (sebekm,IKY et al), racists sebekm, IKY et al), xenophobes (sebekm, IKY et al)and homophobes (sebekm, IKYet al), not to mention FASCISTS (sebekm, IKY et al)LOST--big time."
I didn't lose anything. The country is the same today as it was yesterday. We just got four more years of (potential) incompent mismanagement and misplaced priorities.
Murrelet - I take your insults as a compliment, because I (and everyone else) recognize the source. I'm also happy that you continue to build my case, as it is obvious that you have no regard for the site terms of service.
As I said before, we're all in it together. That means that your tax dollars (assuming that you pay any) are subsidizing my retirement and upcoming social security payments.
Think about that when you shoot your mouth off.
How do you know? According to the tally I saw earlier today, Romney got 57 MILLION VOTES. I'm sure that you're rolling everybody who voted for him up with me, so that means that the country is filled with 57 million MALE AND FEMALE mysogynists, racists, xenophobes, homophobes, right?
Okay Blanche....back to sleep.
...and now - it's been fun, but back to reality....until next time:
Goodnight, Blanche...wherever you are....
Well I can only hope that you are not going to blame this plunge on the Re-Election Of President Obama.
I guess it's just a coincidence that the reelection of somebody who is anti-business and anti-Wall Street has resulted in the further loss of personal financial wealth.
Only the Republican Party will. They cannot accept defeat, so blame the man in charge. Gotta love this country.
The best man didn’t win, when you go by there actual records. The MOST DIVISIVE PRESIDENT in our lifetime DEMONIZED a good man who could teach you how to FISH; instead of FEEDING spoon feeding it to you. In 2008 it was Hope and Change and in 2012 it was DEMONIZE a successful American that has flourished in an outstanding career as a CEO. Right is Right and wrong is wrong there is no political partisanship in that regard.
THE BEST MAN DIDN’T WIN!
THE BEST DEMONIZER OF ANOTHER MAN DID!
Check out the exit polls and you will know I’m not going to research every detail to able body Americans; you need to do it like Chief MVB, and me.
A fact to a toe tag liberal is like KRYPTONITE to Superman as proven in this blog here:
Not a whimper from anyone that voted for Obama and remember the 9/11 Benghazi attacks haven’t been forgotten. Look forward for more lies and deceit to come as General Petraeus has resigned in the wake of this tragedy
And yes the markets fell because an anti-capitalist won re-election and will be in office another four years. Entrepreneurs who take risk to create jobs need certainty, BHO is uncertainty in regards to free market enterprise what’s so hard to understand. Remember BHO 1 will tell you he is for all the above and then BHO2 kicks in and say the no one else should pay more taxes but the top 1%.
LOL!!!!!!! If the best man did not win, why isn't Romeny President!!!! I do not need to go by actual records, the Electoral College is proff enough. Mitt Romney was the worse GOP candidate since Bob Dole.
Let us ALL hope that the President and Congress can get us out of this mess or come January we will be in one mega hurt.
I hope so too Brother Jimmy, it's time for the President to go to the center and triangulate the best ideas of both sides like Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich. It's Barack Obama and John Boehner's time to work together and come up with a bipartisan solution.
