The Democrat/liberal media press is on Palin just as I predicted.
When she became a possibility for the 2012 campaign it was up to the Dems and Liberal media to start immediately on smearing her and trying to demean her.
It's the old Dem/Liberal media plan.
If she doesn't want intense and unfair scrutiny for the next four years she should just announce that she isn't interested for 2012. Otherwise the will hack her computer (like they did) they will go through her garbage (like the did with Joe the Plumber) they will criticize everything she does from raising the kids(like they did) to what toilet tissue she uses.
It's Dem/Liberal media thing.
When she came on the scene the Dems and Lib media panicked but got themselves together to start a smear campaign.
The media didn't care that the LA Times had a video of the new President Elect hanging out with a known hater of America. Why probe that? Sarah had a nice dress on.
Why should the Liberal media probe the reason for many haters of the USA befriending the new PE? Heck, Sarah daughter is pregnant and not married?
Why doesn't the Liberal media ask the gay folks in California if they were upset during the 2000 election when the gay/liberals were screaming that every vote should count yet when the gays lost their "same sex marriage" referendum the other day the gay/liberals didn't say " Every Vote Counts or The People have Spoken" No, they want to get a liberal judge, appointed by Clinton, to overturn the will of the voters. A classic liberal " do as I say, not as I do" attitude. Screw the voters. And where are the Liberals that are so concerned with invasion of privacy and yet an average American, Joe the Plumber, asked a candidate a legitimate question and was scrutinized and smeared in the media. The old Dem/ Lib game plan. Dems in government were using their work computers to try to find personal info on Joe to pass along to the campaign. No inquiry by the press as to this mans privacy being invaded.
If it were a Liberal that was being looked into it would have been reported to the US Attorney by now.
Wake up America.
And Remember. All the good American families that stock the military of the country should stop volunteering. Why fight for people like Pelosi , Kerry, Obama that think the military is a bunch of undereducated, redneck, bible thumpers. Let PE start the draft so that all the young people that voted for him get drafted and get a real feel for how their vote influenced their life!
Wow is right. What a rant. I'm sorry your guy didn't win, but AMERICA DID WAKE UP.

America has spoken. America voted. Not everyone is happy, but hey--majority rules and the majority went with Obama.

Joe the plumber references should die a much needed death now. The whole thing was ludicrous and for the record, that guy COURTS the media for his fifteen minute extension these days. Nobody is smearing him or doing anything untoward. I'm sure he's a lovely guy, but c'mon now--are you really willing to let this person represent the 'average' joe for ALL of us. It's just so out there...

I can't even address all of your rant. It's just too long and bizarre. Liberal this, democrat that.

Barrack Obama is your next President of these UNITED states. Get over it. It is what it is. How about coming together to work on our country?

Gee, I can't hear the tin pans banging away with their ignorance and bigotry, the Wildly Cheering World seems to be Drowning Them Out.

I guess what they have to say just isn't really important, or worth hearing, As USUAL.

Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States !

WELL DONE, AMERICA !

Congratulations !

I think the election outcome is wonderful. Obama is young, in touch, eloquent, a good listener, and level. I heard him described as cool headed and even-tempered on Larry King last night. These qualities are quite desirable in a Commander in Chief. I think we need that.

Competent public speaking has been missing for a while in the White House. There many times I sat painfully listening to Bush and cringing with classics like “Nuc-u-lar”. It’s petty, sure, but the world was watching these little faux pas and it was cringe-worthy. It became increasingly more difficult to listen to and I’m sure I was not alone.

That being said, I believe Obama has inherited a colossal mess and he knows it. In his acceptance speech, he acknowledged that it’s going to be an uphill battle and that things won’t be magically fixed in one year or even one term. That’s just common sense. He was honest. The economy didn’t start circling the drain overnight.

As far as Obama being a savior, or attributing other-worldly qualities to him—I don’t subscribe to that and anyone with brainwaves should not either. We elect human beings to office, not gods or superheroes. Men are fallible. Some more than others (Dubya?). Hopefully, we can all galvanize and help Obama do what he needs to do. John McCain gave a wonderful, classy speech the other night in which he promised to help our new President accomplish new goals. Why can’t we do the same?

I do believe Barrack Obama loves this country just like John McCain. To suggest otherwise is sheer folly. Referring to the guy as a Socialist, a Marxist, a Communist, a Fascist—so tiresome! Come on now—really? This kind of misinformation usually surrounds liberals or democrats and anyone aligning themselves with those two groups. It’s pure rubbish. Democratic presidents never turn out to be anything other than democrats; fallible maybe, but certainly nothing approaching the radicalism recently attributed to Obama.

I am in love with the idea that some of the world celebrated along with us the other night. It was refreshing. As Obama stated, the hope of change is there and it’s a process. Electing him to office is not the change we seek, but a START. The world knows this. The sooner everyone in this country is able to jettison the old divisiveness of partisan politics, the better.

"Iraq had nothing to do with Obama's win." - Nothing? Wanting to pull out of Iraq had nothing to do with it.
You must be joking.
"Obama has already said he is not taking troops out of Iraq anytime soon as things must move slowly." - No, he didn't.
And the rest is pure speculation on your part.
Mitt Romney or anyone else is pure speculation.
The people of The U.S. have taken their country back. It is just that simple.
The majority in both the popular and electoral vote have sent a clear message and you can rationalize this all you want.
This was a solid win for whatever spin your lack of pride makes you use.
War, unemployment, health insurance, infractsucture, immigration, education were all painfully ignored by the select few who considered themselves answerable to no one.
It feels great to have the change this country deserves.
You moron, did you even read the polls to see what reasoning people had to vote the way they did. it was overwhelmingly economy. No one ever said this wasn't a solid win, and no one ever said Obama was bad, so get off your high horse everyt time you think someone insults your guy. Face it, Iraq is pretty much out of the picture. Yes we want our troops home, but with no deaths to read about in the paper every day, it has become a 2nd story. As for welcoming the change, i hope your right, but 2 days of collapsed stock market are saying the world doesn't have to much confidence in the future.

When you write you high school papers, in your bibliographies do you say "look it up" to your teachers or do you give sources?
When you have something to prove, do you have your opponent do your research.
There is nothing to "look up." There were no illegal firings under any modern day president and no formal charges brought against a US attorney general for withholding subpeonaed material in the modern day.
"Please go look it up?"
Sorry, do your own research. Only Alberto Gonzales was thrown out of office for this.
Btw, I read the rest of your postings and see that you really are never wrong.
Well, 56 senate seats, 259 house seats and a 52% majority for Obama place you in a minority in this country.
No one has digusted America worse than GW Bush. This election is your proof.
Hence the reason we don't waste time on you Joe the hack. You obviously read one item, and take that as fact even when the majority of information is overwhelmingly against you. I said look it up merely because it is a waste of time doing it for you. This is something Dems have already accepted, but not Joe the Hack. everyone is wrong but him incuding his own people. As for you majority has spoken stuff, i agree, they have spoken and I hope things work out well. To cut your nose to spite you face is stupid. Don't forget though, some $60 million people disagreed with Obama and the democratic congress has an 8% approval rating. Don't go sitting high and mighty on your horse as it's a quick tumble if they don't change thier ways. Independants can change thier votes quite quickly.
