  • Russian Attack Sub Off Our Coast As Sequestration Looms

    Defense: The fruit of unilateral disarmament, appeasement and promised "flexibility" patrols our East Coast near one of our largest ballistic missile submarine bases. Defense cuts and Russian subs — a double whammy. 'On June 1 or a bit later, we will resume constant patrolling of the world's oceans by strategic nuclear submarines," Russian Navy Commander Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky said in February. Keeping that promise, a Russian Sierra-2 class nuclear attack submarine cruised within 200 miles of our East Coast on the eve of a U.S. presidential election in which defense spending and priorities were a key issue. This is the...

    Fox News and other media outlets have projected that President Obama has been reelected to a second term. If, in celebrating his victory Obama wanted to give credit where credit is due, he might want to think about calling some of America's top journalists, since their favorable approach almost certainly made the difference between victory and defeat. Reviewing the 2012 presidential campaign, here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney:

Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the OSS was formed to do just that and we know how that turned out. Using Simpsonesque logic, Republicans tried to defeat an opponent who would lie, cheat and steal by staying above the fray and we know how that turned out.

    In the aftermath of any victory, presidential candidates proclaim a new mandate to move forward on the values of their campaign. Barack Obama will probably be no different, but National Journal's Ron Fournier warns that claiming a mandate after this election would be politically dangerous --- and a fantasy: Barack Obama won a second term but no mandate. Thanks in part to his own small-bore and brutish campaign, victory guarantees the president nothing more than the headache of building consensus in a gridlocked capital on behalf of a polarized public.If the president begins his second term under any delusion that...

    Last night was an absolute shock to the system, because Americans decidedly rejected a decent and competent man with a real plan to get this country back on its feet. Instead, the Ministry of Truth succeeded in pushing voters to choose four more years of wild spending, government intrusion, chaos, and ineptitude. It’s tempting to lash out and succumb to anger this morning…and waking up today knowing that Barack Obama and the Left would be in power for another four years was cold and numb…since it just didn’t seem possible that Americans would want to subject themselves to an actual...

    The coming demographic tidal wave I feared has officially arrived. Barack Obama, despite all his failures and treasonous scandals, actually increased his vote with minorities. As I said months ago, we cannot continue to lose over 90% of the black vote, 75% of the Latino vote, and expect to win. It’s too much to overcome being Democrats continue to appeal to more women while still getting a sizable share of white voters. When I touted Marco Rubio and Allen West for VP it was exactly because of these inescapable facts. And for the record, I love Paul Ryan and think...

    A newly re-elected President Barack Obama will push for higher taxes -- including a dividend-tax hike that will cause a substantial drop in stocks, Pimco's Bill Gross told CNBC Wednesday. Obama will get little time to enjoy his election victory Tuesday, as he will have to get to work quickly with Congress to avoid the nation's "fiscal cliff" of looming mandated tax increases and spending cuts. One likely remedy for revenue-raising will be to take the current dividend tax rate of 15 percent and hike it five to 10 percentage points, said Gross, co-CEO at the firm that runs the...

    According to one Tea Party leader, the reason for Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama is that he was not conservative enough and was “weak-kneed” and a throwback to Bob Dole and John McCain. The President Bush’s were not named, however. In a press statement, entitled “Tea Party Vows "No Retreat" and a subtitle “Promise to search out candidates with clear conservative records; no more Dole-McCain-Romney nominees”, the group leaders said the following:

    President Barack Obama won a second term last night and must now begin the hard work of cleaning up the mess left by the man who held the office for the last four years. In his first term, Mr. Obama presided over an unprecedented expansion of the federal government.

President Obama 2.0 will begin his term trying to fight off sequestration; the deep spending cuts and crippling tax increases due in January because he kicked the problem of...

Of course, I was disappointed Romney lost, but it is not as if the Bolsheviks have toppled and killed the Czar and his family, yet. President Obama will not have an easy time this next four years, and it is very hard to foresee the nation's economy increasing, much less our morality - which is the engine of a prosperous nation as opposed to pure economic gain.

Obama has always performed better with women than with men, and with nonwhites than with whites. But on Tuesday night, those numbers were so much in his favor that they built Obama a powerful firewall against a dropoff in support from white men and independent voters. Nonwhite voters turned out to vote in higher numbers than ever. They made up 21 percent of all voters. In 1996, they were just 10 percent. That new bloc was evident in Florida, the...

This explains GOP strongly holding the House and many state offices. Obama voters also seem to be much less interested in mid-term elections, explaining 2010. They vote for the BIG Nanny. To close: the GOP must discard their old establishment and Tea Party must get more politically savvy… two very winnable Senate seats...

    Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo. $6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors. Republicans will keep the House. Democrats will keep the Senate. Obama will keep the White House. It is what it is. The next two years are going to be some of the most fun and exciting years within the modern American conservative movement. We know in American politics...

    Barack Obama has been re-elected president. Like most on the right, I misread America. The United States of America faces huge problems as a nation. Our economy is skidding, we have racked up massive debt to an unsustainable level, and we are no longer a culturally confident or united nation. We are a scattering of enclaves, barely on speaking terms, swaggering and vibrant Texas suspiciously eying bankrupt but arrogant California, rural and traditional Oklahoma has nothing in common with corrupt and secular Illinois, and so forth. Our entitlement spending threatens to engulf red state and blue state alike. We now...

    There are many Americans that thought that you were unacceptable four years ago, and have not been convinced that they were wrong, by the direction you have taken our country.. Today our country chose to reelect you as our President once again, but in a narrow margin.. This election has given you, once again, an opportunity to prove that the half of it's citizens that didn't vote for you can be proven wrong.. For the sake of your place in the history, and with the fate of our Nation in your hands, I pray that they, and I, can and...
  • HURT: Obama victory means four more years with no hope of change

    All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing. Republicans control the House. Democrats control the Senate. And the White House remains in Democratic hands with absolutely no mandate whatsoever. Another four years with no hope of change. In this environment with this economy and all the gravely important matters pressing against the very existence of this country, it should have been a tsunami election. It should have been a landslide that sent President Obama into dust heap of failed presidencies. Instead, the election was about Big Bird. It was the rape...

    It was a touching image, especially for someone like me who grew up in a racially charged city in northern New Jersey, for whom Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemons constituted a singular image of a post-racist future even as local cops could still harass and brutalise young black men with relative impunity... Whether or not you voted for Obama in 2008, it was hard not to be teary-eyed on election night watching an African American man win the presidency of a country that during his lifetime was still routinely lynching black men... That things haven't turned out quite as most...
  • Soros says Obama victory means "more sensible politics"

    illionaire investor George Soros said late Tuesday that the projected re-election of President Barack Obama will open "the door for more sensible politics." Soros, who has contributed mightily to Democratic causes and supported many liberal and progressive groups, told Reuters: "I'm delighted that President Obama has won. The American electorate has rejected extremist positions." In an email exchange, Soros, who was in Budapest, said he hopes "the Republicans in office will make better partners in the coming years." He noted that cooperation between America's political parties is "urgently" needed to deal with the so-called fiscal cliff - the yearend combination...
  • Harsher energy regulations coming in Obama's second term

    11/06/2012 10:23:06 PM PST · by Tailgunner Joe · 31 replies ^ | November 7, 2012
    Energy companies likely will see more regulation in President Barack Obama's second term, with less access to federal lands and water even as the administration promotes energy independence. With a pledge to cut oil imports by half by 2020, Obama during the campaign advocated what he called an "all of the above" approach to developing a range of domestic energy sources. He said, however, that he would roll back subsidies for oil companies and reduce the nation's reliance on oil by mandating production of more fuel-efficient vehicles. "You are going to have less access to federal lands and tougher government...
