Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

No, I don't think it's a matter of "getting a message" out. I think we've passed the tipping point-- more people are riding in the wagon (liberals ) than are pulling it (conservatives).
And parasites have as much voting power as a producer. So it makes sense: women will vote for somebody that promises to save them $9/month in birth control. Minorities will vote for somebody that promises them more EBT, Welfare, Section 8, etc. etc. etc.
Neither seem to have the ability to think long term. When everybody is sitting on their butts waiting for the gubbermint to tell them what to do, give them their allowance, feed them, who pays for it?
And most alarming about it is how liberals DON'T MIND being parasites. People used to be ashamed to accept charity. Liberals pride themselves in being pathetic. Needy. Entitled.
I've hidden my assets for the next four years. Lord Obama and the parasites are going to have a rough time finding them. I will enjoy a good show.
You ran a man that hide money in the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes. A man that hasn't worked since 1999 but makes $57,000.00 per day. A man that makes millions per year and pays less taxes than a person would making $57,000.00 per year instead of per day. We Democrats look at all that as being a parasite.

The Repub leaders in Washington are NOT afraid raising taxes on the rich will cause job lost. They are afraid raising taxes will NOT cause job loses and their talking point once again will be proven wrong.

Like death, taxes, and the sun rising in the east, there is nothing more certain after a presidential election than a swift and usually overwrought round of analysis and advice for the losers. So it is this year for Republicans. If you Google “Republicans Whigs,” and confine your search to the past week, you will find multiple pages dedicated to the proposition that demographic trends are waiting to overwhelm the Republican Party, which is now a regional rump party awaiting extinction.

They weren't booing God, they were booing making it part of the platform. As in thinking people should make their own decisions about religion. You, The Religious Right and Fox News, on the other hand think you have the whole thing cornered and have the right to shove it down people's throats. More fraudulence and theatrics from the Teavangelicals. How did that work out for ya? As it appears you enjoy Dylan's lyrics, contemplate these.......
"With God On Our Side"
Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And the land that I live in
Has God on its side.
Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged
The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.
The Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I's made to memorize
With guns on their hands
And God on their side.
The First World War, boys
It came and it went
The reason for fighting
I never did get
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead
When God's on your side.
Dylan became a Christian having been born a Jew.

He also wrote the song "You're Gonna Have to Serve Somebody":

It might be the devil
Or it might be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

The Dubya List
Dick Morris believed it was his “duty” to go on TV and say that Romney was going to win this thing, because everybody on Team Romney at the time was depressed. It’s hard to know whether Morris really believed what he was saying, as he claims to, but there can be no doubt that he saw his role as cheerleading for the Republican candidate, not offering straightforward analysis.
Dick Morris is a conservative figure who really ought to never be heard from again. He’s a hack. I say give him a Dubya Award for Meritorious Service To The Conservative Movement, and push him off the stage.(“Meritorious” in the sense that, say, a boss who is firing an employee for screwing up makes an insincere but face-saving statement about how much the company has benefited from the employee’s service, and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors).
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher...
"I would include the completely fictional character that the GOP leadership invented to run against in the last Presidential election."
Did you read the comments to the article? I was pleasantly surprised at how many people suggested Krauthammer be Dubya'd.

Because mocking Dick Morris never gets old ...
Dick Morris is pretending to know shit again.
"As the popular vote counts emerge and we move out from under the shadow of the media spin, we are learning the real reason Romney lost."
Apparently this column supersedes his previous column on why Romney lost. Is it because no one bought that load of bull? Nope, it's because of the media spin! Which he's happy to counter. Just like he countered public polling by claiming he had THE ONE TRUE poll.
He's so credible!
"The mainstream media is pushing the story that a massive turnout among minorities and the young drowned the white male vote as America changes its demography."
Brown people "drowned" white people? He sure knows his audience.
"But the real reason is that the whites who supported Romney didn’t turn out to vote."
Brilliant call, Sherlock. White people supported Romney but they didn't support Romney. Where do I send you a check for more of that?
"Just look at the fact, brought to my attention by National Review and Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, that Obama carried Ohio by 107,000 votes (some are still being counted) and that Romney got about 100,000 fewer votes than McCain!"
I know math is hard, but 107,000 is still a bigger number than 100,000.
"Why was the white vote so low? Why did so many anti-Obama voters stay home? The immediate cause was the total failure of the ORCA system for getting out the vote. This new hi tech gadgetry had never been beta tested and crashed repeatedly on Election Day."
That's what happens when Republicans run shit. It crashes.
"But the failure of the white vote to turn out was also because neither the Romney campaign nor any of the super PACs rebutted Obama’s attacks on the Republican candidate. Unanswered, the attacks transformed Romney’s Bain Capital experience into a nightmare of outsourcing and callous layoffs."
It's impossible to rebut what is true.
"Finally, the storm Sandy had a great deal to do with Obama’s re-election. His presidency may be its most lasting damage to our nation and its inhabitants. One voter in six cited the storm as the key factor in their decision to back Obama according to exit polls, a last minute bump for the president that was not reflected in the polls. Why not? Because there were no polls. The polling firms could not reach the affected areas during the storm. We were all flying blind when Obama and Governor Chris Christie’s display of bi-partisanship garnered votes of the Democratic ticket."
I've rebutted the Sandy thing before, but take a real close look at Dick's argument again—
Obama got a bump that helped him win the election in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Colorado, Nevada and Wisconsin—but it didn't show up in the polling because pollsters couldn't call Connecticut, New Jersey or New York. He's so smart!
Now yes, Dick Morris is stupid, he's always been stupid, and he'll always be stupid. So why keep mocking him? Well, because it's fun, and because he remains a regular "analyst" on Fox News. And nothing illustrates the vapid uselessness of Fox News as an effective analytical outlet than the fact that they depend on this guy to inform their viewers.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/11/15/1162...
==========
To sum it up, if they keep denying why they lost and keep refusing to see the truth of why they got their butts kicked, it is going to happen to them again in 2014 and 2016. That is a good thing.

I like Dick Morris and the rest of the right-wing pundits. Democrats could not win without them.

What's dangerous are folks like Jindal, Rubio, and Ayotte, who see exactly where their Republican comrades are deficient.

Hey Stupid-

You lose.

Israel already gave over Gaza. Not enough for 'em? Too bad. Prepare to die and meet the maker-dark age, radical, greedy anarchists.

It's the American Spirit that progressives want to squelch. If it were up to them, this verse in My Country Tis of Thee would be banned:

Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.

Lucky for them, the majority of Americans have forgotten how to be inspired by these words. Complacency and relying on big government has replaced a belief and relying on something greater than ourselves to guide this nation and our individual conscience.

Our leaders may have betrayed the American Spirit and committed astrocities, but the American people representing the heart of America cannot be blamed.

The problem with America is really a heart condition. Progressivism is the plaque.

Conservatives simply strive to preserve virtues and traditional values. Neither are we perfect.

However, manipulation isn't a virtue. That's where democrats can't seem to draw the line.

and it's about time Obama semi-approved the message that Israel is sending-right back at the lunaTICS.

In a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama reiterated American support for Israel to defend itself, Reuters reported.

I agree with the spokesman. Airstrikes simply put the Israeli pilots in danger. They should cease the airstrikes and launch laser-guided missiles.

At the moment, there’s little indication that Republicans — especially the ones criticizing Romney — have rethought their commitment to the policies offered in this election, few of which speak to the actual concerns of ordinary Americans.
One last thing: Ignoring, for now, the fact that the Affordable Care Act provides benefits for all Americans — and not just African Americans and Latinos — there’s something odd about this line of criticism. Voters elect and support politicians to do things for them. There’s nothing illegitimate about the fact that Obama won by providing tangible benefits to people who needed them. And in fact, if elected president, this was Romney’s plan as well — large tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, who don’t need them but would like them all the same. That Romney doesn’t see those measures as “gifts” is a sign of how blinded he is by his class.

Purple lipped liar said: "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan."
Connecticut's leading primary care physician organization with over 1,000 employees just announced that their employee's costs for health insurance coverage will increase 24% in 2013. Also, 2013 will be the last year this corporation will offer employees HMO and POS plans. In 2014 only a high deductable health insurance plan will be offered.
So all that free shit Obama freely spreads around to his slacker horde does have costs; costs that will undoubtedly be paid for by middle class workers!!!

"In the realm of media commenters, I’d like to nominate both Limbaugh and Hannity. I want to see if they maintain their audiences after the election. I used to listen to both of them, but now cannot stand either. Both are like a broken record, saying the same thing over and over again. Both hate President Obama so much that they cannot think straight. BTW, both advocate for more Empire and more unnecessary wars. I really wonder if they hurt the conservative cause more than they help it."

The oppressor, blind to the brutality and injustice meted out to sustain dominance and prosperity, escalates the levels of force employed to protect privilege. The crimes of the oppressor are seen among the elite as the administering of justice—law and order, the war on terror, the natural law of globalization, the right granted by privilege and power to shape and govern the world. The oppressor cannot see the West’s false humanism. The oppressor cannot, as James Baldwin wrote, understand that our “history has no moral justification, and the West has no moral authority.” The oppressor, able to speak only in the language of force and increasingly lashing out like a wounded animal, will be consumed in the inferno.
“People who shut their eyes to reality simply invite their own destruction,” Baldwin wrote,“and anyone who insists on remaining in a state of innocence long after that innocence is dead turns himself into a monster.

And?? That has what to do with the price of eggs?? What else ya got??........

He left his Jewish roots and temporarily converted to Christianity in 1979. The singer was reeling from his recent divorce and hooked on heroin. He went on to record two albums with Christian lyrics. But all the while, Dylan was participating in Jewish rituals including the bar mitzvahs of his sons. But after two and a half years, Dylan came to believe that his Christian advisors were exploiting him,, he “became concerned” that some preachers were over-publicizing Dylan’s initially private conversion and he joined Chabad-Lubavitch, a Hasidic movement within Orthodox Judaism. What a disappointment that must have been: the old-time religion turned out to be yet another con. He is currently a practicing Orthodox Jew.

I must, however respectfully, disagree with you. America has no king, and God resides in our hearts - not our government. I personally prefer to align with the Divine, but it's not my place or anyone's to declare a sovereign deity for everyone.

It just isn't.

We're all to blame, carol. The Divine only guides us if we choose to follow.

As a nation, we haven't - because as a nation, we worship Mammon, even if individually we say otherwise.

Just saying.
