A hard rain will wash away Democrats’ pyrrhic victory

A hard rain will wash away Democrats’ pyrrhic victory

Another great analysis by Caroline Glick (h/t Linda in Tennessee):

The American spirit has been overwhelmed by the European model of social democracy at home and appeasement and treachery abroad.

But all the dependency champions who celebrated on Tuesday night cannot stop the coming storm. The greatest advantage Obama had going into the election was not demography but the fact that the full consequences of his statist economic policies and his pro-jihadist foreign policy have not yet been felt.

Nationalized healthcare will only be fully implemented in 2014. Americans will only begin watching old men and women die because the federal government denied them lifesaving, but expensive treatments a year from now. They will only lose their doctors due to dwindling Medicare reimbursements in a year.

College students who got out the vote for Obama will only find themselves doomed to low-paying jobs and a life of indebtedness as they fail year in and year out to pay off their college loans, in a year or two. And by the time they realize what it means to be saddled with a national debt of $16 trillion, they will be locked into a government-controlled economy that requires them to keep their silence or lose their livelihoods.

Then there are the consequences of Obama’s foreign policies….

It will be harder for Obama to hide the dangers of his foreign policy when the Taliban return to power in Afghanistan and Al Qaida rebuilds its training camps. It will be harder for Obama to blame his failure on hapless American filmmakers when Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is controlled by a Taliban-aligned government that seeks a nuclear war with India. It will be harder for Obama to protect America with a gutted, demoralized military, demobilized under his command….

As most people know, Israel, as the forward base of freedom in the Muslim world, is the first target of the Obama-supported, ascendant forces of jihad. As a consequence, Israel will be the first to feel the repercussions of Obama’s policies of appeasement and empowerment of Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood….

No one said any of this will be easy. But difficult is not the same as impossible. Within a year, the consequences of Obama’s failed domestic and foreign policies will make him weaker rather than stronger than he was in his first term. He will be hard pressed to pressure Israel when the US loses its leadership role in the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Middle East. And Israel’s independence of action will consequently grow.

Our side suffered a massive loss on Tuesday.

But as long as we keep our minds and hearts focused on the fundamental goodness and truth that guide our path, we will not be defeated. We will endure, persevere and in due course, we will be vindicated.

It’s a hard rain that’s going to come.

Are we vindicated before or after obscene spending and debt collapse the economy? The numbers don’t lie – it’s either default or devaluation.

    Ragspierre in reply to nemo. | November 10, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Those two points are just stops on the road.

    To where?

    As I said the other day…a slim majority has chosen catastrophic failure over rational reform.

    It could…and I fear WILL…get very ugly. ObamaCare changes the paradigm of “next election”.

    We had a chance to stop it, and many Americans sat on their butts and did nothing.

      To where, indeed, that is the only question that matters. And we already know the answer, as history is our guide: it’s uglier than can be imagined, as the left controls the propaganda machine.

      But people are too quick to hang all hopes on one candidate. The fact is that Romney satisfied nobody’s desire in the way of a conservative candidate but the left’s, and the odds that he – having expressed himself quite clearly by his actions and allegiances – would have put the brakes on out of control spending, were nil. Ryan as VP was a bone to the fiscal conservatives, but the VP has little power to influence or anything else, and can always be dispatched to the nether regions of the world on missions of goodwill, for the duration of a presidency.

      Obamacare with all its constitutional issues and costs is not the end of the empire. It’s no less intrusive on rights than the patriot act, a horrible law that makes “trading liberty for safety” another checkmark on the marxist wishlist.

      The real money problem is the $100T PLUS in unfunded liabilities to the retiring generations. That dwarfs all other monies, period, including the wars, many times over. In other words, previous marxists had this all sewn up 99 years ago, or more.

      That’s why it’s either default or devalue. Followed by worldwide pain and suffering.

        Ragspierre in reply to nemo. | November 10, 2012 at 2:01 pm

        “…the odds that he – having expressed himself quite clearly by his actions and allegiances – would have put the brakes on out of control spending, were nil.”

        Horsesh!t. He pledged to kill ObamaCare. Put his odds of doing that at anything above 10% if you want.

        Simple STUPID game-theory makes him a going-away choice of anyone with a brain.

          Romney pretended to care about correcting the evil called obamacare, and the public pretended to vote for him.

          Did you ever consider that obamacare is just another payoff? Who wanted it? Not the public, aggregately. Insurance companies wanted it. The same ones who donated millions of dollars to Romney, to ensure it stays in force. Romney was never going to die on that hill. The pledge cost him nothing, because it was doomed to failure by any number of outside forces.

      Not to worry, The Establishment has a plan…
      Raise taxes
      get jeb bush as the nominee
      approve debt ceiling hike
      make Obamacare law-of-the-land

      What could go wrong?

        Ragspierre in reply to serfer1962. | November 10, 2012 at 2:07 pm

        “…make Obamacare law-of-the-land”

        Dude! That boat sailed. It IS the law of the land.

        The only way to stop it is via defiance. Civil disobedience.

        It worked with Prohibition, and it ALWAYS works if popularly supported.

          legacyrepublican in reply to Ragspierre. | November 10, 2012 at 6:45 pm

          Civil Disobedience notwithstanding, resistance by whatever options available to you is the order of the day, week, months, and years to come.

          We, my family, are looking into a medical sharing plan right now and will consider going with it asap. We know that my wife’s medical coverage will be dropped by the end of next year because it will be just too expensive for the company.

          This option allows us to sidestep all penalties and will take us out of the system.

          Next, think about taking legal actions of all sorts. Fight having your records in D.C. looked at as a violation of your privacy under Roe V Wade ( yes, ironic, isn’t it ).

          Hammer the administration with FOIC requests about what, who, why, and when your medical records were looked at. Keep them on the defensive at all times. Do this every six months.

          Go after AARP. Call them greedy and talk about all the money they are making off of Obamacare.

          Help governors who resist Obamacare by sending in money right now to their campaigns. Form PACS to defend them and those in the state houses.

          You know, everyone is complaining that we got our clock cleaned. I must disagree. We are up against an enemy who has been at it for up to their evil for over 50 years.

          To do as well as we have in as short a time as we have means there is hope.

          Our enemies have given us a noose to hang up their agenda. Let’s use that rope to tie them up so badly it will teach them a lesson.

          Get smarter, work smarter, and resist!!!

      liesel409 in reply to Ragspierre. | November 10, 2012 at 3:52 pm

      There is still an Obamacare lawsuit pending, iirc. We can pray for that to be successful.

      According to Michael F. Cannon’s article, those that are in red states can pressure their governors to not implement it:

        Ragspierre in reply to liesel409. | November 10, 2012 at 5:04 pm

        We grasp at straws because sometimes straws come through for us.

        Enough straws make a hawser, after all.

        I’m all for running the traps on ObamaCare…try everything first.

        But the Supremes do not fill me with confidence.

Forgive please but I’m still in one of those nasty stages of grief, perhaps passing from denial into anger.

The question for me is: at what point will reality dawn and blame correctly be assigned? For example, I have yet to see any widespread recognition that forcing banks to grant bad risk loans caused a domino effect of risk-avoiding securities schemes, which resulted in the housing bubble.

Nationalized healthcare… fully implemented in 2014…watching old men and women die… lose their doctors due to dwindling Medicare reimbursements…

And people will agitate to throw more money at the problem, and blame conservatives who resist?

College students who got out the vote for Obama… doomed to low-paying jobs… indebtedness as they fail year in and year out to pay off their college loans… saddled with a national debt of $16 trillion…
locked into a government-controlled economy…

And the affected will demand laws forgiving student debt and for more wage regulations, and blame conservatives who resist?

Let’s apply the Cloward-Piven strategy to the Obama administration: take the Federal giveaways and place demands on the system. The sooner its failure can be exposed, the better.

    Ragspierre in reply to Norris. | November 10, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    What counsels me against that is my love of people…even pretty stupid people.

    A Cloward-Piven collapse would hurt or even kill many thousands of people. Some of those would be totally innocent of even being foolish, and could include my children and grandchildren.

    And I am not assured that the remainder would choose better than they just did on election day.

The problem will still be the control of most news and entertainment by hardcore lefties who are now emboldened by what they pulled off in getting Obama re-elected. Their covering, sifting, lying and their control of the standard narrative, profit makers=bad; profit takers=good, will still place blame on the wrong people. Fox News is not enough. The MSM will still be blaming Bush for everything right up to 2016.

    Catherine in reply to caplight45. | November 10, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Won’t they also blame obstructionist republicans in the house of representatives as well for keeping Obama from doing all the “good” he could do?

    jimposter in reply to caplight45. | November 10, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Republicans don’t act like it is war, which it is. They act like pansies. They need a narrative and tactics that are designed to demonize and cause as much personal destruction as possible to liberal news personalities and organizations, and other fellow travelers of the left. They also need to take a scorched earth approach to legislation with as many underhanded, guerrilla-like strategies as possible.

    Do what the Democrats have done. Start now with a relentless drumbeat of slander against every Democrat who can be attacked. Having a laugh on a conservative blog isn’t sufficient. Get the tabloids fired up, find their scandals and destroy them.

    This is a fight for survival. What are people willing to do to survive? Apparently the same old crowd in the GOP establishment are even scared to be “accused” of being racists, etc.

    Your enemy doesn’t have time to accuse you when they are busy furiously bailing water out of their own sinking boat.

The hard rain will fall more on the American people than on Obama. By 2016, the Chicago mafia will have fixed the electoral process so that no Republican can be president for the foreseeable future. America has met its Hugo Chavez and put him in power irrevocably.

    This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. – Deuteronomy 30:19

    Our country chose President Death and President Gay Marriage and the fools think we are looking “forward” to better times and Obama deludes himself by saying the best is yet to come. I predict a great deal of suffering by individuals which will be done in silence and reported on infrequently by our corrupt media.

We might be vindicated in history but that does little good with regard to the physical outcome.

Can you say, “Blade Runner?”

“Nationalized healthcare… fully implemented in 2014…watching old men and women die”

listingstarboard | November 10, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Still convinced that the software that tabulated votes primarily in swing states gave Obama the victory–not that it matters, the truth is irrelevant at this point. The University of Colorado model is THE most accurate prediction model and it had Romney winning.

    I agree.

    I was thinking about the University of Colorado model yesterday and have concluded that it only works when people ACTUALLY WANT a job and success. The paradigm has shifted in this country to a nation of not caring about that and even ridiculing it. Wonder what the profs themselves will conclude…

Whatever happens it will be the fault of the obstructionist Republicans in the House and the “just say no” Republican minority in the Senate that just want to see Obama’s policies fail and don’t care about America, poor people, minorities, women, gays and liberal arts graduates.

Severe economic hardship will likely do nothing to break the spell of Obamaism—if anything, it may just reinforce it. Think Mass Stockholm Syndrome.

For instance, the Great Depression clearly did little to knock FDR out of power—he got elected 4 times, despite continuously failing New Deal policies which did little to alleviate the hardship. What makes people so sure that Obama and his successors won’t receive the same electoral support…?

    NC Mountain Girl in reply to Dynamism. | November 10, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    The 1937-38 recession pretty much killed the New Deal. In the 1939 election the Republicans picked up 81 seats in the House. They didn’t do as well in the Senate with only a 6 seat pick up put please remember that 1936 had been so bad for Republicans they had been down to 17(!) US Senators.

    This election was not an endorsement of Obama’s policies. It was won by the urban machines turning out the underclass, not always by legal means, and by poisoning the well of working class whites.

    Many of the trendy urban white vote is about to get a hard reality check. They are heavily employed by industries such as hospitality and IT temp agencies that will be cutting people back to 30 hours a week. That is a brutal number. Losing 10 hours strips most people of disposable income but it is really hard to work two 30 hour a week jobs week in-week out even if the terms of your contract allow it.

      jimzinsocal in reply to NC Mountain Girl. | November 10, 2012 at 1:21 pm

      The Narritive Magicians in the Whitehouse are goint into overdrice pretty soon.
      Lets think about where they are at now
      The Great Financial Meltdown and sunsequent recession have been cemented in the public mind as a Bush failure and responsibility. Never mind the truth that Fed Policy probably did more harm than Bush, ther public has been convinced.
      The housing bubble burst has also been cast as a Bush inative when in fact Clinton deserves more responsibility than anything Bush did.
      Government is the good guy. Corporations are to blame for the extended recession.
      Folks with healthy incomes are now evil and selfish and terribly “unfair” and unpatriotic according to Obama and his class wariors.

      So now here we are with the tax issue.
      Republicans express concerns that during a recession, its a bad idea to raise taxes on anyone.
      Obama takes the position that raising taxes will help with the deficit and provide funding for government “investment” in all sorts of important things like the holy education spending.
      Its in simple terms absolute bullshit.

      For Obama its revenge. Its a populist pitch reframed as “fairness”
      Fairness is never sticking your hand in the wallet of someone else.
      As deficit reduction its pure fantasy.

      See here

      At most, raising taxes on the wealthy would generate about $70 billion per year in additional government revenue, according to an Ernst & Young report prepared for several lobbying groups opposed to tax hikes. The deficit this year is likely to be about $900 billion, and the total national debt is more than $16 trillion. So higher taxes on the wealthy would only cut the deficit by about 8 percent. And over 10 years, they’d only reduce the total national debt by about 7 percent. (That $70 billion per year would increase gradually over a decade, due to inflation and economic growth.)

      Good luck middle America. Obama’s cash vacuum cleaner is headed your way. And pay no attention to the tax increases included in Obamacare. The narrative suggests those dont count. They are cast as “the right thing to do”

      I suspect Americans will simply adapt and get used to their soft new cages with little protest. Those currently being born into these circumstances today, won’t even know any better once they grow into the next generation of adults. They’ll have no frame of personal experience to compare what life in America used to be like.

      Every Western nation on the planet is now succumbing, or has succumb to Welfare-Statism; I’m not convinced this one will be any different. Some might say Americans are different because of the values & ideals of this country… but really none of this is terribly new in American sociopolitical history, and if the ideology of a free people was really going to hold the line against the creeping ennui of socialism, then its advance would’ve already been rallied against and successfully rebuked nearly a century ago. This obviously didn’t happen.

      So, here we are. A nation addicted to abusing the democratic process in order to cannibalize one another in the name of “social justice”, procure other people’s stuff and terminally squabble over who gets the loot.

      Of course, there are some things the GOP could do to reform itself and its message, and potentially start breaking this cycle to change course… but I imagine you’ll see them double-down on reactionary social conservative ideas and manage to hand Progressive Democrats even more elections.

“A hard rain will wash away Democrats’ pyrrhic victory.”

The good news? Governor Christie will be giving out free hugs to the hard rain victims.

    If he came at me with open arms I would be afraid that he might say “get in mah belly!”

    Sorry, but some temptations can’t be resisted.

Conservatives need to cancel newspaper and magazine subscriptions, cable tv, and quit donating to colleges. Home school if you can. It is idiotic for us to feed the Democrat propaganda machine.

    David Yotham in reply to Mkelley. | November 10, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    I expect home schooling will shortly be a thing of the past. Why would any statist regime allow thistles to grow in it’s cultivated Utopia? The state is not looking for students who know how to think, rather they’re looking for ‘units’ who will agree and obey.

    NC Mountain Girl in reply to Mkelley. | November 10, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    The day after the election my alma mater called asking for money. It is a Catholic university at least in name. I am afraid I was a bit short to the 19 year old girl. I told her that not only was I broke because of Obama, but that until she could prove the faculty and student body voted for the pro-life, pro-free exercise of religion candidates all my charitable giving would be confined to my own parish where I know most members vote their pro life values. I told her she needed to learn right now that elections have real world consequences and to pass that message to her supervisor.

Well, when that hard rain begins falling, you can be sure that the press will be there to raise umbrellas over Obama’s head.

In response to this article by Caroline Glick, I agree with all the impactful results she mentions from Obama’s policies – everything and more. The Great Depression is going to look like the ‘after church Sunday buffet’ in my opinion. The problem is that I do NOT see it making any difference in Obama’s perspectives, attitudes nor plans. Even worse though, I believe that this country has been cowed into submission by the entitlement meme.

It’s my opinion that Obama knew beforehand the results of his economic policy – and went ahead with their implementation anyway. Does Obama care is the real issue – and I do not think he does. Ask the people living in the path of Hurricane Sandy and then a frigid Noreaster with blowing snow – ask them how much their president cares. Blankets, water, power, heat? (Katrina II)

I have no indication that Obama cares about anything other than himself and the power he might accumulate. People living here in America think that we’re the only ‘power game’ in town, forgetting about the UN or the upcoming Islamic Caliphate. I propose that the American people are only tools for Obama to gain more status and power – nothing else. I doubt he sees that old grandmother shivering up on Long Island as someone other than a photo op.

We need someone to lead us out of the darkness, just like Newt did back in 94.

NC Mountain Girl | November 10, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Threatening home schoolers may be more politically suicidal than threatening gun owners. Home schoolers are found in every congressional district, they cross party lines, they have their own well organized network and they are extremely dedicated. Back in the early 90s before most people were on the Internet someone in the House put a rider on a bill that would have required states to establish credential requirements for parents who home schooled if the states were to continue to receive federal education money. Within a day every office on Capital Hill was flooded with irate phone calls and faxes to the point where the system could hardly handle the volume. I heard that staffers weren’t even waiting to find out what the call was about. They’d pick up, blurt out “We are against HR-xxx!” and hang up to take the next call.

How bad was it? The sponsor didn’t even vote for his own amendment. I haven’t heard of another serious attempt since then.

    I know some 30-somethings who are stuck on leftism (but both quite nice, and responsible, and even entrepreneurial–go figure) who home-school, although they could probably afford some of the better private schools in the area. I would like to see their reaction to an attack on home-schooling. But then, I thought they might turn more conservative a decade ago when they were shocked at how much of their income was taken by the government.

    It’s hard to get through to people who are very smart but have spent their entire lives in heavily leftist parts of the country, although they did seem genuinely interested in my take on what the Tea Party movement was really all about. And they seemed slightly receptive to my observation that “the debt now exceeds the GDP, and your children will pay for it.”

So what? This is what I said in 2008. Just give Obama and the Left a few years and watch how they destroy and demoralize the economy, triple trhe debt, use the federal government to bully and bribe corporations, scheme to and circumvent the Constitution and the legislature, mismanage foreign policy, target and isolate Israel, coddle tyrants, and viciously slander all political dissent. They did all this, and worse — they shoved Obamacare down our throats. So wait, I said, wait for 2012.

Now we’re supposed to wait for what, 2016? I’m tired of waiting.

It’s all moot if you don’t have a courageous and outspoken opposition party that knows how to take on the Left and more importantly will confront the media across the political landscape and relentlessly dismantle their narrartives. Relentlessly. We don’t. Are we close to having one than in 2008? Are you kidding? If anything, Romney was more pathetic than McCain. This is what we waited for?

No, this won’t do. No more waiting — not for the Left to fail further, not for anything. Something has to change. Now. We fight starting NOW or we’re finished.

1. Some conservative reactions to the election worry me a lot more than the results do.

2. People of faith in the LI community may have heard of the Serenity Prayer, attributed to the eminent theologian Reinhold Niebuhr:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

The triple distinction is well worth pondering even by nonbelievers.

    Catherine in reply to gs. | November 10, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    The Catholic Church must fight against corruption of itself. How can a Catholic Hospital or school fulfill its mission properly if it lets Obama corrupt it by following government rules that are contrary to church teachings?

      Michael Jones in reply to Catherine. | November 10, 2012 at 3:42 pm

      Catherine – good question, but I’m still in need of the answer to what motivated a majority of Catholics to vote for a second oBama term.

      Mind boggling.

        Catherine in reply to Michael Jones. | November 10, 2012 at 8:41 pm

        Catholics are supposed to give to the poor AND be pro-life. It is not one or the other.

        Some Catholics are union voters and are voting for their own financial interests. I bet some of them regret voting for the abortion president so that they can keep their jobs and perhaps some of them donate to pro-life causes and/or to the poor.

        I am upset with Catholic politicians who voted for ObamaCare without making sure that the religious freedom of Catholics would be protected. I feel that they betrayed the Church.

    legalizehazing in reply to gs. | November 10, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    Gs must stand for good stuff

    I completely agree. But I was drawn out of my private affairs to follow this election closely. I just wish so dearly there was something I could do.

    I refuse to “stay calm and carry on”. I refuse to accept this future. I will do what I can and always look to do more.

All this hand-wringing. So much misinterpretation.

1. Republicans lost last Tuesday, not because the electorate was rejecting Republicanism, but because a big part of the Republican base stayed home.

2. Despite all the talk about how the Democrats are the party of an amalgamation of numerous splinter groups, the plain fact is so are the Republicans: country clubbers and “moderate” Republicans, the religous right, non-religous social conservatives, and tea partiers, to name four (without even getting to single-issue conservatives such as pro-lifers and gun rights advocates). Here’s the problem: tea partiers, social conservatives, and religous conservatives stay home on election day if a perceived moderate or country clubber is the nominee, which is what happened to a large extent last Tuesday. But the reverse is also true. Country clubbers/moderates will stay home on election day if the nominee is perceived to be someone they see as a kooky hard-right conservative (i.e., a tea partier). Until this two-way rift is resolved the Republicans will have a difficult time getting the entire base mobilized and out to vote on election day.

3. The choice IS NOT between European-style democratic socialism and supposed capitalism. We are already a European-style democratic socialist country. Don’t think so? Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, food stamps, SSI, welfare, unemployment compensation, etc. Hello? What’s all that? European-style socialism, we are already there. And it ain’t going away either. Any Republican nominee who runs on the platform of eliminating Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, food stamps, SSI, welfare, and unemployment compensation would go down in copious flames.

4. IMHO what Republicans need to do, instead of hammering on how bad those programs are, is to stress the importance of a vibrant and productive private sector to promote overall prosperity and to fund these programs.

5. Another thing: Chris Christie. He’s the Republican governor of a vey blue state. He did what he had to do to ensure his reelection in 2014. I’m not excusing what he did. Just explaining it.

    jimposter in reply to G Joubert. | November 10, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    ” Republicans lost last Tuesday, not because the electorate was rejecting Republicanism, but because a big part of the Republican base stayed home.”

    From what I have read this appears to have been a significant factor.

    What does it say however about Republicans who would sit out an election of this importance? If you can’t count on your base to “get it” then how can you ever make a winning case when you know the Democrats will cheat as well as turn theirs out?

      I was stunned to learn (the next day) that our base did not turn out to vote. McCain got more votes than Romney! I guess the message was too unclear? BO was easily beatable, and our base didn’t bother to vote. I find that VERY depressing.

      G Joubert in reply to jimposter. | November 11, 2012 at 11:44 am

      “What does it say however about Republicans who would sit out an election of this importance?”

      As an example, when the Republicans run a pro-choice candidate, as Romney was at a previous point in his political career, the pro-life voter has no where to go. At best some conservative voters will hold their nose and unenthusiastically vote for the pro-choice Republican. But many others will just sit the election out. Many Republicans felt that way about Romney. I remember last Spring and Winter when this blog was wall-to-wall Let’s Destroy Romney, and commenters right here commented that very thing: if Romney is the candidate, they’d vote for a 3rd party or stay home. Well, that’s what happened on November 6. Enough conservatives who “would never vote for Romney” stayed home, letting Obama get reelected.

    I completely agree with #4.
    Do you have any idea which segment of our base sat out this election?

      G Joubert in reply to jrg. | November 11, 2012 at 11:50 am

      “Do you have any idea which segment of our base sat out this election?”

      From what I can glean, it was mainly social and religious conservatives who “would never vote for Romney.”

    Rosalie in reply to G Joubert. | November 10, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Christie is no Republican. He’s a liberal just like his buddy O. I can understand him being cordial to O; I can’t understand him fawning over O.

If they try to end homeschooling they will have to pry my son out of my arms at gunpoint. I don’t have a gun but the thought of that would be enough to cause me to get one and to get training in its use. The district I live in is a good one. I think it is not because of the teachers necessarily but the parents are highly motived to have their kids excel and so the test scores go up. I don’t think they teach kids to think. They teach they to take tests. I’m also tired of the having all the political correctness. I want to teach my son European and American history, not the history of China and India. Not that I think it’s not valuable and interesting to learn about those countries but I want him educated in his own background and history first.

When, not if the catastrophic results of the second oBama term come to pass, how does any of this have a detrimental effect of Barack oBama himself.

Jimmy Carter walks around with a smile on his face for being know as the worst President in history and oBama will do the same when he takes the mantel from Carter.

He already walks around with a smile on his face, unbelieving that American voters could be so stupid as to give him another term.

In other words, oBama hates America and is too narcissistic to believe his real legacy of disaster and destruction upon the American people will have any lasting meaning to him.

“Within a year, the consequences of Obama’s failed domestic and foreign policies will make him weaker rather than stronger than he was in his first term.”

Yeah, but he will still be president and still be doing the same things he has been doing.

Is our response to be merely anticipation of the satisfaction of saying “I told you so?” That is small comfort as we watch the flames rise and our civilization burns.

I place no faith in the ability of those who couldn’t learn in four years to suddenly learn in eight.

From Mark Steyn: “So, Washington cannot be saved from itself. For the moment, tend to your state, and county, town and school district, and demonstrate the virtues of responsible self-government at the local level.”

I was feeling better. After a little searching and justifying I thought, the House is Republican and the Senate can filibuster. It will be painful, but we can probably make it through this.
Then I remembered Obama’s likely to have Supreme Court Nominations.
I can honestly say I don’t see a path through this that our country survives.

I’d like to send Juice Plus to all the Supreme Court Justices. Anyone have any healthy lifestyle suggestions for them? Pray. 4 years of praying. Everybody together now.

I think faith in God may be the only way through this.

The negative consequences opponents of the New Deal and the Great Society talked about were incremental changes that took years if not decades to unfold. In the short term it seemed the needy were being helped at an acceptable cost in tax increases. By contrast, the negative consequences of Obamacare will come to pass in a short period of time. They will limit the medical choices for people who are used to having 200 varieties of imported cheeses and 150 types of crackers to go with their 300 bottle wine cave. Even if these people can afford to pay out of pocket what Obamacare doesn’t cover the number of specialists will drop precipitously and waits for appointments will lengthen. This will come as a shock. What will happen in medical care over the next few years will be like telling residents of Marin or the Village of Southhampton a HUD highrise will be built in their midst and they can’t do a thing about it.

Study of uprisings has shown that people who expect things to get worse (and they do), don’t riot. The people who riot are people who were told it would get better, and it got worse. This means the Republicans won’t riot (they’re expecting bad), it’ll be the people who voted for Obama because they were promised free health care, high-paying jobs, free college education, etc. And in 2016, after 8 years, they’ll rather disappointed.

My daughter’s a HS senior, and has friends who are in college – she says everyone she knows was seriously bummed that Obama got re-elected, because the kids in college are saying “there’s no jobs now, and we don’t see jobs in the future”. I was at a “Parent night” when the election was held, and all the kids were visibly upset – one girl even went outside for a half-hour (she said she cried) before she came back. She’s even saying maybe there’s no point in her going to college – no point in paying money for a degree, if there’s no job anyways. And she’s straight-A student who took overload AP classes last year…

    Excellent observation about who is more likely to riot.
    Also, thank you for reporting on intelligent young people. It gives me a little more hope for the future.

Every comment here is correct in one respect or another, as are the millions of words written and spoken over the past four years by our party’s well known commentators and politicians–and all to no effect. Our party must now and finally understand that, like Chavez, Obama cannot be defeated at the ballot box. He can, however, be removed from office by concertedly and properly using Obama’s dispositive inelegibility for the office he illegally occupies. If none of you, none of you–citizen voters, print, digital, TV, radio commentators, party leaders in and out of office, has the courage to wage war on Obama’s eligibility and felonious use of spurious documents, then, like Chavez, Obama’s hand-picked successor will be elected and re-elected. Do not tell me that you have a great fear of a constitutional crisis, or a great fear of underclass riots or assaults in our major cities; I know that your resolute silence on this issue comes from your greater fear for your careers. But I ask you: What kind of careers will you, and your children have–when governed by a man who hides his past, breaks our laws, sympathizes with with extreme islamic fundementalists, nakedly works to weaken our economy and degrade our military and whose only published work in his own hand is a lengthy article urging total US nuclear disarmament? Stand up and stand together, first by the hundreds, and quickly by the thousands, make legal and political war by any and every legal and appropriate means. Make it impossible for our courts
and our House of Representatives not to act. And if you even have to admit that neither Marco Rubio nor Bobby Jindal are any more qualified for the office than Obama, so what? It’s the law.
