    Is there a smaller, more unprincipled man in the national political debate than Chris Matthews of MSNBC? No, there is not. Bereft of decency and devoid of soul, what mattered most for Matthews is that his candidate — in this case, President Obama — somehow was boosted over the top. And if millions of his fellow citizens encounter appalling deprivations along the way — well, to Matthews, they’re just eggs to be broken for the Obama omelet. “I’m so glad we had that storm last week,” he said Tuesday. By which he meant Hurricane Sandy, which sowed death and destruction...
  • GOP to be blamed for plunging off 'fiscal cliff'

    If Republicans don’t go along with calls by President Obama for higher taxes and the nation goes off a “fiscal cliff,” then the GOP is to blame, says a Democratic congressman. <SNIP> Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday it’s actually Democrat policies of massive borrowing and spending that’s pushing the nation over the edge. “We are going over a financial cliff. Everybody in the Obama camp knows we are going over the financial cliff whether we raise taxes on the rich or not,” Limbaugh explained. “Raising taxes, confiscating the wealthy’s money would not save us. There isn’t the money....

    Two boys were assigned to shovel a stable full of horse manure. One of the boys was depressed. The other enthusiastically shoveled with glee. “Why are you happy?” asked the depressed lad. His happy associate responded, “With all of this excrement, there must be a pony in here.” As a Christian, I must trust and believe that God has a pony in allowing Obama to be reelected. Therefore, I will not join those who think we have lost the battle for America. Nor, do I subscribe to the nonsense that our Tea Party values are extreme. Our values are aligned...

    Obama supporters out celebrating his win on election night gathered on State Street Tuesday evening. I asked one man why he was celebrating Obama, and what that meant to him. He said, "It really means to me, no more Israel...Mitt Romney would go to war with Iran...Obama said f*** that sh*t. Kill those mother f***ers." Another said, "Palestine was there first, and Israel moved in in the 1940s and that's an unfair attack." A man of Jewish heritage accompanying him said, "I really do not think that us being with Israel is a good choice for us":(continued w/video)

    Initial jobless claims fell by 8,000 to 355,000 last week, although Hurricane Sandy is hampering efforts to actually collect data on jobless claims. We will have to wait three to four weeks to see the real impact. The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index rose to its highest level since March, printing at -34.4. This may be the new normal since it indicates that 2/3rds of those surveyed are more pessimistic about their financial situation than are optimistic. In fact, 70 percent call it a bad time to spend money and 52 percent rate their personal finances negatively. Now that the election...

    Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 11/08/2012 | Miriam Hill, Jonathan Lai, and Andrew Seidman
    In a city where President Obama received more than 85 percent of the votes, in some places he received almost every one. In 13 Philadelphia wards, Obama received 99 percent of the vote or more. Those wards, many with large African American populations, also swung heavily for Obama over John McCain in 2008 --snip-- Randall Miller, a history professor at St. Joseph's University, said politicians almost never get 99 percent of the votes anywhere except, perhaps, the towns where they were born.
  • A RINO [Mitt] running as a yes man conservative (and losing) isn't a rejection of conservatism

    Again, a rejection of a RINO who has a Youtube video of him bashing a coal-fired power plant, all the way to articles of him flip-flopping on practically any subject you can think of running as a conservative (and then losing in the general election), isn't tantamount to conservatism being over. Let's face it - Romney had a long track record of being a RINO. There are plenty of past threads here detailing his RINO past as governor, as well as his flip-flops before, during and after the primaries. Yet the GOP-e thought that putting up someone whom they said...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/8/2012 | Tara Servatius
    Conservatives need to take a collective breath and look closer at the numbers before they buy into the idea that GOP nominee Mitt Romney's defeat was due to some kind of national demographic shift that now makes Democrat presidential candidates' armor impenetrable. Before you give in to the hysteria, here are a few things to keep in mind. First, Barack Obama's re-election showing was actually pretty unimpressive for a guy whose philosophies voters have supposedly adopted. As of this writing on Wednesday, Obama's vote total stood at an unimpressive 60,119,958. That's about what John Kerry got in 2004 (59,028,444). President...

    America was not built on revenge. America as an idea was thought up in the burning embers of the revolutionary war and built by a successive line of patriots who achieved their joy in giving back, not taking. Sacrifice, character, patriotism, family and the faith of successive generations built this great land. Through the blood of our soldiers overseas and the tireless work of our industry and inventors at home we forged a new reality and created a shining beacon that the entire world looked to in envy. We are a people who have never had to ask permission from...

    Why Smith & Wesson's Shares Took Off By Alex Planes, The Motley Fool Posted 6:22PM 11/07/12 Posted under: Investing Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis. What: Shares of Smith & Wesson (NAS: SWHC) were up 10% today after President Obama's re-election, because everyone now expects gun buyers to buy even more guns over the next four years than they did in his first four years. So what: Despite occasional worries that President Obama...

    Back in March, we heard Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) tell Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”At the time, news outlets reported this as if Obama did not realize he was being recorded, yet there were cameras and microphones all over the place recording every second. Obama had to know the world could hear his words, but I am certain he did not care. When I heard those words, I knew the fix was in, although I still hoped I would be wrong. Obama knew he would “win”...

    ‘In 2008, Obama rode the energy of hope and change into the White House,” says Andrew Bouchet, former national political director for Rick Santorum. “This year, he had no energy but he had spent the intervening years building an awesome Machine. Last night, he rode the Machine back into the White House.” The Machine indeed won. “Starting months ago, Democrats began spending $350 million building a get-out-the-vote infrastructure that swamped us,” Ed Rollins, who served as campaign manager for Ronald Reagan’s 1984 reelection bid, told me yesterday. “Then they demonized Romney in the swing states, and by the time he...

    <p>In the aftermath of the election of 2012, a new reality must be digested by all Americans. Working within the precepts of a democratic republic, The American public freely exercised their choice and voted for a New America.</p> <p>The electorates' decision once and for all confirms a definition of America that values hopes, feelings and equality of results over the realities of human nature, history, and the foundational principles that hold western civilization together. There is now no doubt that the tipping point of geometrically increasing cultural decline has been crossed. America has now firmly changed from a nation where the founding principles of the great enlightenment have been substituted for a utopia of widespread human suffering. There is no going back.</p>

    (...)Rove knew better. He always knows better. He had no interest in taking the revelations of the book and using them in his ad campaigns. Instead, he ran a conventional campaign telling people what they already knew – what Obama had already done in his first four years. In the meantime, he also went to war with conservative Republicans like Todd Akin, who, by the way, lost by a smaller margin than some of Rove’s favorites – like Connie Mack in Florida. At the end of the day, Rove failed at every goal he had been charged with – winning...

    An armed masked man who robbed a Warren convenience store on Tuesday also told the clerk at gunpoint to vote for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Reports said the black man, who wore a gray sweatshirt and had a white bandana covering his nose and lower face, robbed the Convenient Food Mart at 3120 Parkman Road N.W. at gunpoint. Witnesses told police he pointed the gun at the clerk and repeatedly asked who he voted for in the presidential election. The clerk said he was not allowed to vote. The gunman then said “Vote for Obama. This is Obama (expletive)”...

    Now that the election is behind us, perhaps we can put politics aside and acknowledge a hard fact: On September 11, 2012, America was defeated by al-Qaeda in the Battle of Benghazi.About this battle many questions remain. The media and Congress have a responsibility to get answers — not only because we should know the truth, not only to assign blame, but, more important, to learn from failure. At the least, we should try to understand what lessons our enemies have learned — because they will apply those lessons in the future.It is possible to lose many battles and...

    JACKSON, Miss. — A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges. The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said. The incident comes just after the 50th anniversary...
