    I had hoped that the majority of voters would elect Mitt Romney, but instead of a man of character they chose charisma. They ignored four years of failure and deception. In advertising, they say “Sell the sizzle, not the steak.” Romney, sadly, lacked sizzle. Obama’s victory was one of a long line of Progressives from Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Jimmy Carter. It was not new, but it will likely do more damage on top of what his predecessors have done. It turned out that there were not enough voters from the faith-based communities. You know—the kind...
  • Cabinet role for Mitt Romney would be a shrewd move

    President Obama’s post-election offer to sit down with vanquished GOP rival Mitt Romney has spurred talk of a possible White House role for Romney, a move that could help calm jitters on Wall Street and warm the partisan chill on Capitol Hill. Romney is still licking his wounds from the devastating loss, and supporters say he’s more concerned now with being with family than working with Obama.

    Obama is indeed the 21st century's Chamberlain. In another disastrous bid for appeasement, he has handed control of North Africa to Al Qaeda. If Al Qaeda controls North Africa, it will soon be in position to interdict the Mediterranean through terrorism against shipping. As it builds up, it will then seize control of the Straits of Gibraltar. It already rules the Suez Canal. A bankrupt, islamized and weakened Europe will be in position to do absolutely nothing. Obama will look the other way. On the other end of the Middle East, the major sects of Islam will join to attack...

    The American Prospect ^ | October 31, 2012 | Robert Kuttner
    Once again, Barack Obama has proven to be the luckiest politician alive. Just when the race was tightening to a dead heat in the election’s closing days, one spectacular betrayal and one rank miscalculation on the Republican side have turned the contest back in Obama’s favor. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who will tour his storm-ravaged state today with President Obama, was all over the networks Tuesday telling what a wonderful leader his president was. “I spoke to the president three times yesterday,” Christie boasted, calling Obama “outstanding.” When Fox co-host Steve Doocy meekly asked Christie if he planned any...

    Rep. Allen West is leading by more than 300 votes in Palm Beach County, Fla., a hopeful sign for the Tea Party favorite fighting for his political life after Tuesday’s election, a source told TheBlaze. No winner has been declared in the congressional race between the Republican West and his Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy, though Murphy had a 2,456-vote lead in the unofficial vote total. But a Republican observer who has been monitoring the counting process said West pulled ahead in Palm Beach County on Thursday as the initial count continues. Ballot printing errors led to ballots that could not...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that he had called President Obama to congratulate him on his win in the 2012 presidential election — but has only sent an email to Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for whom he campaigned heavily earlier this year. “We didn’t have a political strategy discussion,” Christie said of his call to Obama, according to Bloomberg. “I said congratulations on your win last night Mr. President, he said thank you governor.”

    Gun sales set to rise, Smith & Wesson stock jumps after Obama win Gun sales are poised to boom, based on the increased number of firearms background checks being performed. By Tiffany Hsu November 7, 2012, 10:45 a.m. While investors moping over President Barack Obama’s reelection sent the Dow spiraling down more than 300 points Wednesday morning, one sector is seeing a surge: gun manufacturing. Firearms maker Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. surged 10.8% to $10.48 a share in morning trading, more than double its price at the beginning of the year. Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc. got a 6.4%...

    NEW YORK, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Stocks dropped in New York Thursday, as investors remained skittish after President Obama's re-election victory. The Dow Jones industrial average gave up more than 300 points Wednesday to fall below 13,000 as investors were bearish on election results that left Washington split with a Democratic president and Senate, and a Republican-controlled House.On Thursday, the Commerce Department said the U.S. trade deficit shrank in September, dropping from a revised August trade gap of $43.8 billion to $41.5 billion.Stocks still fell. By close of trading, the DJIA was off 121.41 points or 0.94 percent to 12,811.32.The...

    TAMPA, Fla. — This is the hometown of U.S. Special Operations Command — at nearby MacDill Air Force Base. This headquarters dispatches our military's special operators — Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines — on missions in the most difficult and dangerous places on earth. It's also the place where "action officers" are burning the midnight oil — but not necessarily planning new targets for our Navy SEALs. Apparently, a "good number" of SOCOM's staff members are busy preparing responses to the batches of inquiries about what really happened in Benghazi, Libya — before, during and after the terror attack...

    MOORHEAD, Minn. — Hundreds of workers in our region are losing their jobs as wind turbine manufacturers cut production. The federal tax credit that subsidizes wind energy is set to expire at the end of the year, and political uncertainty is putting the brakes on the wind industry. More than 500 workers are losing their jobs in the Red River Valley. By the end of November, 345 workers who make wind turbine blades at a Grand Forks, N.D. factory will be out of work. Bill Burga, who heads manufacturing in North and South America for LM Wind Power, the Denmark-based...

It’s 600-grand by the time Obama takes it,” said Kent. “I’m a game seven World Series loser. I’ve played in the biggest games in the world, and the worst games in the world, and this just sucks.”

The future is bright. God has a plan for prosperity, for a real hope and a real future.

    4 Your Country ^ | 11/18/12 | 4 Your Country
    Whatever the reason for America's decision, the reality is that taxes and government will continue to consume disproportionate resources to pay off our past excesses. 43% of those that voted, a large fraction of those voting for President Obama, thinks government should do more. Since government ultimately gets money from taxpayers, that means 43% of the voters want things from the other 57% of voters. Politicians call this 57% the 1%. If you are part of the 57% you might consider the following steps to protect your finances. Actually, since the Government won't be able to offer more goodies for...

    Volunteers and disaster victims have taken rescue, recovery and security into their own hands on New York's storm-ravaged borough of Staten Island, where they say FEMA has forgotten them. Already without power for more than a week in the wake of superstorm Sandy, hard-hit residents of the borough's South Shore braved a nor'easter Wednesday night, many -- perhaps hundreds -- huddling in condemned homes and ignoring orders to evacuate out of fear looters would take what little Mother Nature has left them. "FEMA packed up everything yesterday and left the area," said MaryLou Wong, whose home in the Midland Beach...

    The “Balkanization” of America now requires that office seekers pander to all narrow special interest voters to secure their support. Have we become so selfish and self-interested that we now no longer concern ourselves with what the Founders called “…the general Welfare…”? It’s what happens when a nation fails to secure its borders, allowing in those who not only do not even speak the language but have no understanding of the traditions, mores, folkways and HISTORY of that nation and fail or REFUSE to assimilate. And that millions of them are here ILLEGALLY makes fools of those who stand in...

    The largest demographic of Obama's religious coalition supporters is made up of those who have stated they are not affiliated with a religion. The Public Religion Research Institute's 'American Values Survey' pegs that number to be approximately 23%. The largest percentage that supported Mitt Romney came from white, evangelical Protestants, at 37%.The survey also revealed that Obama supporters are younger, more diverse and more accepting of growing minority groups. Compared to the older, largely Caucasian and fundamentally religious group that supported the Republican candidate, analysts are predicting the demographic supporting Obama will translate into more wins for the Democrats in...
