We voted, successfully, to keep a corporate
vulture out of the White House whose economic
plan for the future was simply George W. Bush's
disastrous reimplementation of Reaganomics after
the eight-year hiatus of the Clinton presidency.

We know all too well where that went.
Straight down!

America cannot afford another George W. Bush.

Sandy had another effect. Turning attention from Benghazi and a sinister GOP plot.
What's going to be discovered is that the Petraeus scandal is just part of a bigger ultra-rich Repulican scheme that leads to Benghazi and a plot to overthrow the election of President Obama, just like Republican operatives plotted with Iran to delay release of hostages so as to effect re-election of Carter.
Ultra-rich right wingers also tried a similar plan to overthrow President FDR.
Our country has always been for sale to the ultra-rich, if not by high ranking influential individuals it is by the gullible and unsophisticated who roam among us daily.
Since the sinister Atwater type/Republican scheme failed to foil Obama re-election, Republicans probably need this whole thing to go away quickly before it hurts them more in 2014 and beyond, but now they can't un-ring the bell they rang.
And to think it almost succeeded. The scandal broke several days before November 6 election as planned but Obama was able to contain it until after election. Sheer genius on his part.
Notice the GOP beginning to back-off on Benghazi?
The GOP had nothing to do with a sinister plot. The gun running and murder plot will come out soon. This was just cleaning up a mess that would have taken down Obama, Clinton and Panetta. That's why the information on Petraeus was held for months. He didn't have a get out of jail card of deniability. The scapegoat ate a hardy last meal.

Time to stop BS-ing!
Obama won ONLY because of the Hurricane.
The MATH is simple:
Obama wins by a little over 1%
Over 70% say Obama handled the storm well(of course the MSM buried all the mucho incompetance of FEMA)
A CBS Exit Poll shows over 40% day Obama's handling of the Storm affected their vote.
And the same poll showed that a wiopping 15% said that the Hurricane was the number 1 reason for voting for Obama.
------
No Hurricane, then Romney is President and the economic future of the US once again looks bright.
The hurricane was mild compared to the force of Romney's empty-headed phoniness.
What the hurricane did was prove to doubters that Obama is a bold and presidential leader. To most of us that was evident all along.

The losers were the middle-class, education, the US, the truth, the deficit, the young(they super screwed themselves) and those with IQ's over room temperatures.

The BIG WINNNER was the GLOBALIST OLIGARCHY, the Bilderbergs, their dream of a Global Corporate Fascist One-World Government has been advanced. They have sucessful stolen TRILLIONS out of the US Treasury and trheir genocide of the middle-class is almost complete, and their Uncle Tom puppet is in the WH.

I don't know Larry, I don't think Obama's fascist economic policies(crony Capitalism) are really gonna work.

Did you see Obama's Debt Clock??? And TRILLIONS to foreign bankers at very low interst rates(in secret). Political Correctness has ruined the school system and the middle-class is about to get hit with raised insurance premiums.

Once again, how President Sandy won the election.

http://nation.foxnews.com/hurricane-sandy/201...

In his post, he thanked a number of people who helped make the president’s re-election possible, especially “Mother Nature.”

“You, Mother Nature, with all your horrific damage, death and destruction you caused last week, you became, ironically, the undoing of a Party that didn’t believe in you or your climate changing powers,”

http://nation.foxnews.com/chris-matthews/2012...

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week.‘Cause I think the storm was one of those things. No.

Politically, I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics.”
----------
No storm? Then Obama gives a concession speech.

Well then, this surely will be interesting to see when the secessionists formally begin renouncing their prior support of God in earthly matters.

Very interesting.

Heaven, November 12, 2012---In a tightly controlled press conference held here today in a small conference room just inside the fabled "Pearly Gates", God issued a terse statement denying responsibility for the massive hurricane named "Sandy" that battered the east coast of the United States of America earlier this month on the minor planet known as "Earth", in the Milky Way.

After shuffling quickly to a small podium in the sparsely appointed room, speaking to a gathering of about ten reporters, God authoritatively stated, "Let me be perfectly clear. I have not had relations of any sort with "Sandy". Any rumors that anyone may have heard to that effect are merely, and simply, rumors. Furthermore, there seems to be a small group out there responsible for initiating these falsehoods, and perpetuating this abhorrent myth that I would somehow manipulate the weather on a miniscule planet in order to influence an exercise of human self determination there. This is sheer lunacy, and those who engage in this sort of scandalous libel will eventually reap their rewards. Trust me on that one, Bubba."

Before ending his remarks and departing the chamber to play golf, God briefly joked to reporters, including Walter Cronkite, "Hell...I was taking a bath that entire week, and these idiots think I had time to do THAT???"

Let's see what Laughing Liberal's take is. Did he die from a heart attack election night? He's been silent since his second big loss, 2008 and 2012. Maybe he was fired and his boss took his computer.

Soon he will be a Democrat, like Arianna Huffington after her divorce. Finding yourself suddenly without income has a profound way of turning rabid Republicans into rabid Democrats.

LOL
