More nonsense, millions of us were already seeing Reagan as a man of destiny, a world shaker, he had earned a reputation as a hard core right winger, and he had to convince the public that they could risk voting for him in exchange for a chance to neuter the Soviet Union, and save the world.
In 1980 there was an element of fear and tingling involved in voting for Reagan. We knew that things were going to be very, very, different, if we gave the presidency to the famous, fire breathing, already legendary, "Ronnie Raygun".
To this day, nobody even knows what Mitt's beliefs or politics are, or why he was so obsessed with wanting to be president.
Even on this politically sophisticated site, the pro-Romney points were, "He isn't Muslim", and "Anybody but Obama" mixed in with "no, he reversed all those positions in 2006".
I’m not surprised to see some of the “conservative” anti Romney types trashing him now that the election is over. Heck, some of you did that for the last six months, trying your best to convince others to not vote for him. Maybe it worked. Maybe some who post here on the premiere conservative website decided to vote for Obama, who knows. Maybe you were successful.
America has spoken. The majority of the voters want the society to be ruled by the “have nots”. The country has changed, media has changed. The illiterate thugs who spend time on their twitter accounts (on the “Obama” phones that you and I pay for) are also in your corner.
All in all, nothing changed in this election. The White House is occupied by a democrat, the House is republican, the Senate democrat. I think the country is headed in the wrong direction, and I’m saddened beyond belief, my child will end up paying for all of this debt for the have nots, however, since this family isn’t lazy, we’ll continue to be part of the producing class, even if we have less cash as a result. We’ll cut back on something, maybe a dinner out, and the illiterates won’t realize that cutting back on a dinner out, times a hundred and you all of a sudden have 5 fewer jobs. It’s okay though, they’ll just get an Obama phone and a twitter account and they’ll be on your side, trashing Romney.
I’m still on America’s side. There will be primaries in three years and you can get your complaints ready ...........he or she isn’t conservative enough!!!! oh, who’s my candidate you’ll be asked, well it’s not that guy or woman!!!
And you supported, campaigned for and voted for..........?
