Did you see that Michael Moore ad with the 97 year old grandma saying 'burn the m-fer down'?
That's how the Dem's will explain their massive defeat. The Republicans stole the election through massive voter suppression, manipulation, racism and outright voter fraud. I've heard this meme from multiple points in the Democrat spectrum.
Expect massive anti-Romney propaganda, incitement of hatred, encouragement of violence from Day One. They won't have to defend Obama anymore, it'll be the Bush election times 10.
Expect sabotage from the Federal Bureaucracy, as we saw under the Bush EPA and CIA, but even more. Obama has been funneling leftists into the Federal Government with a fire hose.
One of my doubts about Romney is whether he recognizes this and whether he'll have the cojones to fire zillions of Lefties in the Federal Government. Bush did not. Part of his failure as President, was that he did not have the stomach to fight. Bush wouldn't defend himself and he wouldn't defend his voters from the smears of the DemoMedia Complex. Bush even joined in attacking his supporters over immigration. By the end, there was no one left, who would defend Bush.
I hope Romney has learned from that failure.

Precisely. This is something that has bothered me ever since it became clear that Romney would be the Republican nominee, and therefore, the de facto 45th president.
If Romney leaves Obama's federal appointees in place throughout his administration, he may as well kiss a second term and any hope of restoring America good bye. His authority and agenda will be undermined and sabotaged in thousands of different ways from day one.
I know how much he's spoken of 'working across the aisle', but that had better be a bunch of campaign blather, uttered to soothe the nerves of the independents. He's got to adopt the exact opposite tone as soon as he's sworn in, if he intends to actually take command as a president should. The leftists, both appointed and elected, will do everything they can to stop him.
“One of my doubts about Romney is whether he recognizes this and whether he’ll have the cojones to fire zillions of Lefties in the Federal Government.”
Romney didn’t get where he is today without a few heads rolling.
Might want to start a whole new thread on this issue.
