This headline at DEBKAfile is spot on, Barack Obama wins reelection: Mid East faces nuclear Iran, Brotherhood grip: The prospect of another four years of Obama in the White House fills some Middle East nations, including the Persian Gulf and Israel, with trepidation. They envisage a foreign policy that continues to focus on hitching…

Mitt’s Loss Leaves Us With a Lesson

Posted by  ▪  November 7, 2012
Barack Obama is the first two-term president in at least 100 years to get fewer votes in his reelection than he did the first time out. (FDR did less well in both his third and fourth terms.) That is a consequential fact, completely aside from whether Obama lost the popular vote.  It…

Almost wasn’t enough

This seems like a fitting post Election Day entry, summing up hundreds of bumper stickers we have seen the past several months. From an unknown Sprint phone:

Dunkirk

Posted by  ▪  November 7, 2012
I’ll have more in the morning, but my quick thoughts. Of course it was a bad defeat tonight.  Let’s not kid ourselves. We had a chance to stop the decline, and we didn’t. We held the House pretty strongly, so that’s good, and a reflection that candidates and ideology matter.  We nominated candidates at…

Election Night Results — Operation Counterweight and more (Update – Obama Re-elected, Republicans hold House, Dems hold Senate)

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2012
UPDATE 11:19 p.m. – Obama re-elected, the Senate is a little more Democratic, and the House is about the same or maybe slightly more Republican (still waiting as of this writing to see how some House races play out). Romney campaign has not conceded Ohio yet — so it’s not official.  Update — race conceded…

Greatest Senior Prank Ever?

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2012
I cannot at this point verify that this was in fact a Senior Prank, or if it was just a rogue gang of Republican students wanting to make a statement or have a laugh. Whatever the case, my former high school in Cobb County, Georgia has made the papers on this historic…

What will I do?

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2012
Some thoughts. Should Romney lose, there will be trolling beyond belief, including liberals trying to get Republicans to fight with each other in order to tear the party apart. There are fights which will need to be had, but not tomorrow.  Operation Demoralize never stops. Don’t succumb. It will be tempting to do…

Reader Reports

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2012
I am going to regret doing this. You can send me reports and photos, and I will selectively post them. If things get overwhelming, as on National Empty Chair Day, I may have to call it off! If you have reports without photos, do not email me, post in the comments. [added] Remember, some…
