In reelecting Barack Obama, with fewer votes than in 2008, voters traded harmony for the divisiveness of America's most polarizing president.
Woody Allen said, "eighty percent of success is just showing up." How true, because a little more than 20% of America has successfully forced upon the nation 4 more years of Barack the failure.
Yet, in providing Obama with another term, during which he can continue to remake America in his own image, those 66 million voters convinced the president that he is omnipotent and whatever he wishes is not only wise, but inevitable.
Barack Obama is the worst thing to ever happen to this nation, and most Americans support neither him nor his policies. But, his legions of lackeys, in true minion fashion, back him with all their heart, and since they have successfully controlled the message, they have intimidated the majority into believing they are the minority.
Barack Obama, redolent with the stench of false supremacy, is now convinced that he is the greatest man to have ever lived -- not too difficult a task, since he had always suspected as much anyway.
In any case, he now searches for battles to win -- he doesn't care what they are or the impact they have on the nation. He simply wants to be seen as invincible, victorious and most of all, transformational.
History used to be written by the winners -- as defined by the mainstream media. But, going forward, history will be written by those with a computer, a keyboard, and a care.
Yet, Barack Obama is playing a no-lose game. Even if his policies fail (destiny is a bitch), no one will be able to deny he was transformational. Spike Lee was right -- the definitive history of the United States will now be delineated into pre-Barack and post-Barack eras.
Did you hear? In January, Barack Obama forced the Republicans in Congress to accept the Obama middle class tax cuts, while protecting government investment in the programs Americans support.
Political parties by their very nature are about communication and messaging. A party's political purpose is to seek like-minded individuals who agree with their point of view on the vagaries of the day's political blessings and transgressions.
The conservative/moderate message is reasonable and in fact, accepted by a plurality of Americans. Yet, Republicans are as horrible at communicating as the Barack-led Democrat/liberal coalition is at governing.
Sure... Obama controls the press as if he has in his possession a picture of each and every editor and columnist in a compromising position with either a live boy or a dead girl. Not that there's anything wrong with that -- the "live boy" part, at least -- providing they're over the age of consent. The "dead girl" part would be wrong, just plain wrong, whatever their age... but I digress.
Whatever it is, no matter what he says, he is never questioned or challenged. And with every interviewer deliberately fluffing Barack -- the worst president this nation has ever had seems to only get worse -- drifting farther away from reality as he moves further from the truth.
