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 ... Full Story

I couldn't change the channel, it was amazing.
Although I'm not sure if that was Fox News or Entertainment.
We were all praying for a miracle that night, Homer.

Many of those who voted for the wrong person that night wish they had too now.

OK
Let's demolish Brooklyn and build an Air Force base.
Win-win.
Not our fault that you people with sick cultures prefer casinos and Disney World over our beautiful National Parks.
Honestly, you don't surprise me anymore with your stupidity! So your response to the bullshit you chose to post or, should I say " your closing argument is, you chose to have national parks &, we chose to have casino's." That's just plain stupid &, even if it were the case, pay for it since you chose it! Your other dumb rebuttal about Air Force bases in Brooklyn, makes more sense that NY would have &, need more national security, given it's population, geographical demography, & important buildings. Not to mention, it defines the American dream, it's a gigantic melting pot which gives it more of a chance of concealing a big terrorist plot. What would any terrorist be proven by letting off a bomb in Utah? The fatality rate would be minute to say the least regardless of who it's directed at.

Aren't you the same moron that said Sweden was "doing" fine when they were on their 5th day of rioting?

If you are correct, then why did Lois Lerner admit this?

http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/201...

and then there is this:

"As the IRS attacked Tea Party groups, it left hundreds of leftist activist groups alone. A quick review of just eight of those leftist, tax-exempt activist groups demonstrates the IRS’s hypocrisy.

The eight glaring examples of left-wing favoritism are:

• Americans United for Change
• Ruckus Society
• Women’s Action for New Directions
• New World Foundation
• Fierce
• Black Alliance for Just Immigration
• Brennan Center for Justice
• Voto Latino

All are obviously political, all are hard left, all were granted the tax exempt 501(c)3 status Tea Party groups are denied.

Moonbat groups aren’t the only ones who enjoy the IRS’s favor. There are also Islamic terrorist front groups...."

<quoted text>FOX (national) only offers a couple of hours of news per day and it's often tainted. The prime time FOX episodes are completely entertainment, Glenda Beck stated as much in Forbes magazine a couple of years back (Apr 2010) when being interviewed by Forbes Magazine about his mega bucks income.
It was Joe Pyne and to a lesser degree Alan Stang who laid the groundwork for the likes the FOX network and it's nightly entertainers___frankly Joe Pyne was much better with the wooden leg, cane and all. He was the Lord Layton of politics__someone was gonna get kicked around every time you tuned in.
This clown of a used car dealer is so f*cked up that he probably doesn't know the difference between Fox and FoxNews.

Probably spends his day at the dog track.

The fact that he's old enough to remember Joe Pyne (deceased 23 March 1970) speaks volumes about Realasshole's senility.

You're full of crap as usual Carol. NBC is out after ratings, not glorifying anyone. Hillary Clinton is a compelling character having been First Lady, US Senator and Secretary of State. Nobody's going to watch something they consider a sugar coated cheer fest NBC knows it. I'm sure that the characterization of Mrs. Clinton will show warts and all.
As for the Republican boycott, who cares. The last Republican debates were a clown show with the only candidate that showed he had it together was John Huntsman who was doomed to lose because he was actually sane.
Hell more people tuned in to "Here Comes Honey Booboo" than the Republican Convention the night Romney and Ryan were on.

Glenn Beck Challenges “Anybody Who Thinks I’m A Nincompoop”

Setting the stage for a stampede that could flatten Dallas, Glenn Beck took to the airwaves (video below) to glorify himself and lay down the gauntlet for his critics:

“I challenge you…for anybody who thinks I’m a nincompoop, I challenge you to find anyone on planet earth who has had the direction and the specifics as right as I have and we have over the last six years. I challenge you! Bring me the names.”

It goes without saying that there are millions of rational people who know that Beck is a nincompoop (or some other variety of poop). Fortunately for Beck, very few of them care what he says or would waste their time responding to his challenge. Since I have plenty of free time, I’ll pick up the gauntlet and point out that, contrary to his own inflated impression of himself, he has gotten more things wrong over the years than Nostra Dumbass.

It is extremely difficult to raise funds when the tax status is in doubt. No donor wants to be faced with a huge tax bill years after the fact.

New York is no longer relevant to America, instead symbolic of much of what is wrong with the country.

Aside from a few historic structures, NYC has very few assets of value, the Detroit of the future.

This is just a good essay:

The dwindling minority of white male voters
Posted by Michael Miner on 11.08.12 at 02:36 PM

K&M RENTALS
Republican transportation unit
"Obama received the votes of barely 1 in 3 white males," says the front page of Thursday's Tribune. Making white males about the only significant minority that didn't favor the incumbent. But then, significant might be overstating their importance.
As a white male, I should have insights into this minority, particularly the subset consisting of white males of a certain age. I don't. My thoughts may be muddled by the memoir I'm reading, Life, by Keith Richards, whose credentials as a white male of a certain age are very much in order. As a boy, Richards was a Boy Scout. An ardent Boy Scout. "I had badges all over the place, unbelievable!" he writes. The best evidence of his ardor is an anecdote Richards relates from years later:

I was in my hotel room in Saint Petersburg, on tour with the Stones, when I found myself watching the ceremony commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the Boy Scouts. It was at Brownsea Island, where Baden-Powell started his first camp. All alone in my room, I stood up, made the three-fingered salute and said,'Patrol leader, Beaver Patrol, Seventh Dartford Scouts, sir.' I felt I had to report.
A Boy Scout, in case you don't know, is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. That's a lot to remember, but when you know it you know it for life. This week I'm sure millions of men ever ready, willing, and able to snap off the Boy Scout salute and rattle off the Boy Scout virtues gave Romney their support, for what it was worth. Which wasn't enough, obviously, and in 2016 will be worth even less.

Even as a Scout, Richards was obsessed with the music coming over to London from America. "I didn't know Chuck Berry was black for two years after I first heard his music ..." Richards tells us. "And for ages I didn't know Jerry Lee Lewis was white ... It was hardly important. It was the sound that was important." Richards didn't grow up to be a white male. He grew up to be a Rolling Stone.

And it might be simply because I'm reading Life that I think of white males as a subset of white males, the subset of guys for whom being white and being male is pretty much what defines them. The 2012 electorate has been sliced and diced a thousand different ways, and if I broke ranks as a white male I voted predictably as an urbanite and as someone who goes to church less than once a week.(According to a scrawl I spotted on one of the TV stations, the less often someone went to church the more likely he or she was to vote for Obama. Weekly churchgoers were firmly in the Romney camp.)

In a postmortem in Thursday's New York Times, a former Republican congressman from Virginia ponders demographic reality: "It is time to sit down practically and say where are we going to add pieces to our coalition," says Tom Davis. "There just are not enough middle-aged white guys that we can scrape together to win. There's just not enough of them."

To make matters even worse for the Republicans, middle-aged white guys are some of the touchiest people on earth. Offer one your seat on a bus and you'll see what I mean. If they ever suspect Republicans take their vote for granted because—well, because they're such predictable old duffers—the next thing you know they'll be joining the Greens.
