Skip to comments.(Vanity) A Brief Comment on the Election
Posted on 11/04/2008 10:23:12 PM PST by grey_whiskers
Well, the election has come and gone like a shot, apparently. After the interminable round of primaries, Operation Chaos, PUMAs, the conventions, Sarah-cuda, and all the rest.
In one night Obama and Biden have won.
This means we have a troika: Reid, Obama, Pelosi. The "rulers of peace" (ROP).
But this also means, they can no longer blame Bush and the evil Republicans for anything that goes wrong.
the Middle East
tainted food from China
Let us never lose an opportunity to loudly proclaim:
Secondly, can we now revisit affirmative action? A black man has become President. This surely means that Sandra Day O'Connor's mythical 30-year period has passed.
Third, speaking of this: let us see what Obama's cabinet looks like. I foresee many laughs.
If laughing at a Dem is not redefined as a Hate Crime.
Which brings me to the fourth point: beware the ACLU, the Fairness Doctrine, and the Redistribution crowd.
In an earlier vanity, I compared Obama's tongue to Saruman's, in a famous passage from The Lord of The Rings. Let us pray and work to assure that we do not re-live Saruman's usurpation of the Shire; and that our Frodos, Sams, Merrys, and Pippins are equal to the task of Scouring the Shire at the end of the next two- or four-year election cycle.
Which brings me to the last point.
Whatever happens in the next four years, let us hold our heads high. For we can say, proudly, to all the world:
Don't Blame Me. I voted for McCain-Palin!
I foresee the first four acts of Obama will be:
1) Freedom of Choice Act
2) Abandonment of Israel
3) Union Card Check Legislation
4) Tax hikes and redistribution up the wazoo.
...and gutting the military.
Let us all pray for our nation, God's mercy, and peace.
I prefer, "How's that Change workin' for ya?"
I see Pelosi/Reid/Schumer bringing the Fairness Doctrine to the well of the House and the Senate Floor by the first week in February.
I feel broken hearted. I love this country and our values and we elected someone who hates this country and our values. I’m going to cling tighter to my guns and religion.
You forgot the Civil Defense Force.
Maybe I can get a command. I can punch civilians...hey, it’s for the common good.
Please, this is the Dems we are talking about here. They will never take responsibility. They can all vote for something and then convince their idiotic constituents that Bush fooled them and forced them into voting for it.
They will just blame their lack of progress on “failed” Bush policies of the past.
I don’t think so! He will make the New Black Panthers the trainers!
“But this also means, they can no longer blame Bush and the evil Republicans for anything that goes wrong..”
Incorrect, because of the 4th leg of their power and perhaps, as this disastrous election has shown, the most important.
They have near 100% cover from the media who will be able to spin ANY problem to the “8 years of Bush” legacy.
“But this also means, they can no longer blame Bush and the evil Republicans for anything that goes wrong.”
This is where you are wrong. FDR in the 30’s managed to blame all of his own mismanagement of the economy on Hoover and did so successfully. His policies singlehandedly kept our country in a depression for 10 years until Adolf Hitler bailed him out. Hoover got all the blame.
Obama has a media even more in the tank for him than FDR did. It will be easy.
DON'T BLAME ME CONRADE, I VOTED McCAIN / PALIN
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1776 - 2009, REST IN PEACE
OBAMA / PELOSI / REID, THE AXIS OF FASCISM
Just a little stress relief.
Not the gas price spikes.
Not the mass-casualty terror attacks on US soil.
DON'T BLAME ME COMRADE, I VOTED McCAIN / PALIN - fixed it.
But now, it is so bad that it can't be fixed by The One in just 4 years.
Next, it will have been so bad that it can't be fixed by The One in just 8 years.
FDR ran on this for his 3rd term; there were a lot of people who still honored George Washington's example and comments on this topic during FDR's time and he met with some resistence. That resistence did not move into action until after his death.
The real question here is, can the states hold off a repeal of the 22nd Amendment. The cult popularity of Clinton gave this idea some minor, but detectable, traction.
A lot can happen in 8 years...
If the unemployment goes to 7% or more (as businesses lay off people to pay their tax bill), and inflation hits double digits (it will, when the spending on social programs/giveaways kick in), and your taxes go up with expiration of the Bush tax cuts, it will ALWAYS be Bush's fault, and the Republicans' fault.
Likewise, when the fairness doctrine kicks in, you won't be ALLOWED to criticize the Messiah and his socialist supporting cast.
That would be "racist" and "hate speech", doncha know?
Pelosi/Reid/Schumer will bring War Crimes charges against President Bush and VP Cheney.
You make the assumption that there will be an election in 4 years, I’m not so sure there will be.
Read the last line, if nothing else.
