An Historic Election
self | 11/04/2008 | self

Posted on 11/04/2008 8:15:26 PM PST by reg45

In an historic event today, the United States elected its first illegitimate President. The President-elect, whose parents were never legally married (and whose father abandoned the poor strumpet and her child when his son was only an infant), sets a glorious example to the youth of the world. Shack-up, cohabitate, whatever – it does not matter. Any children you produce, no matter whether you are married or not, can now dream of becoming President. The stigma is now eradicated.

All those women who once hid behind a scarlet letter can now proclaim that their marital status – or lack thereof – is now trivial. What a glorious day!

All those men who may have never met or even known of the existence of their children can now celebrate. And they need not worry; for the government will be there in their stead, providing guidance, love, and the all important welfare check.

All of you children out there who never knew your fathers can now rejoice. You have been liberated.

I do, however, feel sorry for the clergymen whose function of performing marriages may no longer be deemed necessary. Yet another group to add to the unemployment rolls.

The “make love not war” immorality of the ‘60s has risen to the pinnacle of respect. Let us all raise a toast to Barack Obastard.

When Kearns-Goodwin, Beschloss, and Brinkley write the history of Barry Soetoro, how many chapters will remain blank? If one dares put pen to paper to fill in those blanks, will they survive (professionally) to see another book printed?

“””Flame away if you like, but I think we should at least give him a chance. Let’s not make BDS ours.”””

Exactly. I have always been the first to scold someone for disrespecting the President. I call them loony toons because all their beliefs are based on BDS... whatever he does is wrong, no matter what it is.

I will not be like that.

“Flame away if you like, but I think we should at least give him a chance.”

Why? He will not give the unborn a chance if he keeps his pledge to Planned Parenthood and as his first act as president, signs the Freedom of Choice Act, effectively overturning any and all restrictions on abortion throughout the nation. And the certainly is no reason to think this extreme pro-abort won’t keep his word to his pals in the abortion industry.

Obama can't help where he came from. Hamilton was illegitimate but would have made a great president. What concerns me however, is how much the rule of law was bent in order to make him president and whether this will become a trend. For better or worse, we get to find out in the coming months.

You know what’s tragic?

People are celebrating the death of America.

I’m sure some would mock that statement…but consider the truth of it.

That’s what this man represents. Bankrupting coal, decimating our economy, weakening us militarily. By his own writing, he’s a racist and a Marxist. By his politics, he is a dirty Chicago machine politician. By his associates, he’s a radical who wants to “transform America.”

And let’s not even begin to ponder the implications of his “Civilian National Security Force”.

232. That’s how many years our country’s existed. It saddens my heart that now I must mourn her passing. Tears will come...I’m sure...but for now I’m in shock.

So congratulations to the MSM for their brilliant campaigning for the Marxisant radical. Congratulations to the campaign of Dear Leader for their brilliant work of hiding their true plans for America with their propaganda.

God help us all.

Not ashamed. Never ashamed. A little embarrassed perhaps that somebody that nobody knows who they are or what they think, or that has only appeared lately on the national stage with no particular life achievement... might become President... yah, that's a little embarrassing. But I'll never be ashamed of my country.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic, but it absolutely was about race, for liberal whites.

I liken the election of Barack Hussein Obama to the monorail effort in Seattle. Liberals knew it would be very expensive, that it would have very limited effect. That it would ultimately fail.

But it made them feel cosmopolitan. Supporting it made them feel like sophisticates.

That the first African-American (half white but no one seems to notice that) President has a name that sounds like it came from Kenya is a bonus because it shows how world-music we are in our tastes.

I mean, do you really think this was about his qualifications? Because he has none. So what's left but the celebrity appeal of a cosmopolite.

On 11-4-08, can not believe America elected someone with these credentials. Also can not believe W. did not produce a protege with a solid footing. May god bless us all, everyone.

I agree about Hamilton. In that case, however, he would have been the first illegitimate President.

Mr. 0bama is also the first President born outside of the continental United States and the first President with a Muslim parent.

My family too has been in America even before it was the United States so I understand where you’re coming from.

I am contemplating moving out of the U.S. ASAP.

I am considering Switzerland or Australia.

I’ve been to both, which sounds better to you?

There is plenty to dislike about Obama’s politics, but his parentage is something he had no control over. He is a once-married man, which is to his and his wife’s credit. This personal attack is not useful and only sounds desperate and hateful.

If I weren’t in an absolutely fighting mode, I’d go to Oz. But none of my ancestors ran when there was a country/king/territory to fight for, and I won’t either.

I will stay here and see that my children and grandchildren have as much homespun advice as I can give them.

The commentary was more about our culture (or lack thereof) than about Mr. 0bama. A few decades ago it would have been absolutely scandalous to elect an illegitimate President. Today, that illegitimate status has become unremarkable and even commonplace. As I said - The immorality of the ‘60s has achieved the pinnacle of success.

Why would you bail out now, when America needs you the most?

Perhaps it’s time to gird your loins and fight like your entire heritage was in jeopardy.

My husband, son, daughter and grandsons have fought for your right to bail out. You may do so with my blessings; remember, too, that I’m here, still fighting for your right to exit, Stage Right (or Left.)

Exactly what about his record, his alliances, his allegiances or his plans give you any reason whatsoever to believe he’s somehow not going to be a radical Marxist/pro-infanticide/anti-energy/anti-success leader?

I think this is why we’re here in the first place, and there’s no place else to go.

We took our ball and went home when it came to the godless NEA indoctrination centers called public schools, and we didn’t confront them, instead we homeschooled and sent our kids to private schools, AND paid for their failures and now we have these young voters that was the difference in this election.

Do you mean politically or culturally? Politically, the dialogue--as it has over the last eight years--is going to move even more to the left. Culturally, we've got a snowball's chance in Kenya.

I've got a crazy idea: America, honor God, the true and living God whose name is not "Hussein."

Do you think anyone would listen? Probably not. Porn, gluttony, and cheap slogans are much more fun.

Mr. Obama (barring Joe Biden's wet dream) will be the President for at least the next four years. As the President, he should be respected and can be a great example to everyone. I hope that young men will follow his example and not the example of his father.

As for his policies, I hope the country will survive what I expect to be a total botch.

Perhaps America needed to learn something from this election. For too long, Americans have sat and watched and done nothing because “someone else” was doing it for them.

So how do we explain “our choice” to new Americans, who gave up so much to come here and “be an American?” Do we tell them, “Ooops!”?

My ancestors were not wanted for at least 400 years, and I don’t care if me and mine are “not welcome.” I will fight for the right to maintain my heritage.

Were my husband alive, he would, no doubt, be angry as all get-out over today’s election results. I was a military wife for 30 years, and I will not die while my country is being held hostage by a nasty, two-faced flannel-mouthed liar who has nothing but his own agenda to champion.

God will not be mocked. We have not seen the end of it.

This POS is just a president-elect now, not president. He stands for everything I’m against. Suck up to him if you wish but this looney tune is not giving him a chance.

The fact that he is half black doesn’t bother me. The fact that his soul, which he has shown us glimpses of, is very dark does.

Enough, quit the belly aching and excuse making. You all sound more like liberals than the liberals themselves. Our party, our President, our so-called leaders lost sight of our principles and this is where we are. It’s time to clean out the trash and rebuild our party based on our core conservative principles. This is the same thing we got stuck with when we elected Bob Dole; nice guy, but he had no chance of winning. How many of you really wanted McCain as our candidate? We need to regroup, refocus, and start electing people that truly represent us. Let’s just hope we can do this as quickly as possible before the three stoogies do to much damage to this great Republic. Let’s face the facts; we were outfunded and outcampaigned by a rookie politician. We got BEAT plain and simple. Let’s learn from it; and never let it happen again. Frustrated and down, but will never quit..
