Barack Obama, our next President

It’s Over; The Republican Party Hasn’t Recovered From Bush

As I write, Barack Obama has been declared the winner of the 2012 election. He will compile an impressive victory in the Electoral College. By my projections at least a 313-213 victory. And it could be larger than that when Florida and Ohio are finally counted. But Romney made a respectable showing in the popular vote, one that would have been surprising before the first debate made a Republican comeback victory seem temporarily possible.

We’ve already gone over the reasons Romney lost. The Republican coalition is shriveling, the Democrats are growing. Romney was an unliked nominee who failed to compete for the very voters that powered Republicans to re-take the House in 2010. I think he is an admirable guy in some ways, but harnessing the passions of the GOP and riding them into the White House was a task beyond the abilities of the hyper-competent, hard-working moderate.

It’s a bad night for social conservatives, in fact it is almost a complete reversal of 2004. Same sex marriage won on the ballot in Maryland and Maine. Obama did not really propose anything new on the economy or foreign policy fronts, but he did make contraception, rape, and Roe v. Wade a large part of this campaign. He constantly portrayed Romney as a man with “the social policies of the 1950s.” Apparently this worked. If there is one thought that comforts me (and perhaps some readers), it is that the chances of courts striking down the “contraceptive mandate” that impinges on religious freedom seem very good. However, Obama’s second term will mean that a future American judiciary may be more open to that sort of thing.

Because changing demographics are such a huge part of Obama’s, it is going to cause Republicans to discuss how they can attract a more diverse pool of voters. Inevitably this will focus on Hispanics. I expect tonight’s results will be used as an argument for automatically nominating Florida Senator Marco Rubio for 2016.

But in reality the more pressing problem is that Republicans are still a party badly damaged by the George W. Bush years. The GOP has traditionally held huge advantages on foreign policy and the economy. That advantage is gone now. And Mitt Romney was the wrong candidate to give the party a refresh on those issues, particularly when the gettable voters were downscale whites. It isn’t that Republicans aren’t reaching enough voters; voters simply don’t believe the GOP is competent to govern.

My daughter decided that if you can't beat them, you join them. She figures that she will just quit looking for a decent job, sign up for welfare tomorrow, and let the government pay her to do nothing for the next 4 years.
That will only be possible if she's the right color.

Sure dumbass, GDP was underwater when he took office and has showed slow but steady gains, the Dow has doubled and we've had consistent private sector job growth. Go back to your alternate universe.

<quoted text>Impeached for accessory to murder for the scores of deaths caused by his "Fast and Furious" debacle.
Impeached for dereliction of duty for ignoring the Embassy victims pleas for help and telling available military personnel to "stand down" while he planned his trip to Vegas.
Impeached for contributory negligence for allowing 120 people to perish in Hurricane Sandy due to his incompetence and arrogance during this national disaster, i.e., putting politics ahead of public safety. Impeachment proceedings should begin as soon as possible and Obama should be put on trial for the felonious crimes against his citizens and the treasonous crimes against his country. I suggest all patriotic Americans contact their representatives and urge them to get this impeachment ball rolling.
"Fast and Furious" was a continuation of "Operation Wide Reciever" and was run out of the SanDiego field office without the authorization of either the Attorney General , who shut it down, or the administration. The fault lies with the Bush administration who let the assault weapons ban lapse, the NRA who fights every effort to ban such weapons and Republican states like Arizona whose lax gun laws allow bulk purchases of the weapons.
You can keep harping on your Benghazi fantasy but the fact is that reinforcements were sent within 25 minutes and no military units were told to stand down. You're a goddamned liar.
Hurricane Sandy was a natural disaster and no president could have prevented those deaths. By the way nitwit polling shows that the President got a 78% approval rating on his handling of Sandy's aftermath.
