Obama wins a second term as U.S. president
Washington Post ^ | November 6, 2012 | David A. Fahrenthold

Posted on 11/07/2012 4:08:57 AM PST by Nickname

Barack Obama was elected to a second presidential term Tuesday, defeating Republican Mitt Romney by reassembling the political coalition that boosted him to victory four years ago, and by remaking himself from a hopeful uniter into a determined fighter for middle-class interests.

When did the left become the silent majority in this nation?

There was not a peep from liberals, no enthusiasm, no fainting spectators in Obama’s small crowds, nothing.

Am I to believe that liberals just sat back and said nothing throughout this campaign, but turned out in massive numbers to endorse this man?

This is the second time since last night that I’ve tried posting the results to breaking news and it was yanked from the category within seconds.

I’m not happy with the results, but what good does it do to deny the outcome? Or is there something wrong with the posting itself?

“Obama is at war with the middle class”

It is going to be much worse than that. The USA cannot become a European Socialist country and a world military power at the same time. Obama has already said that he is going to cut the military down to size. This is going to create an enormous power vacuum around the globe. Look for Obama to deal with Russia by allowing them to retake the eastern Euro countries. Obama will give up Japan and the Philippines to China. Finally, he will throw Israel under the bus. The middle east will soon explode.

We are looking at World War III coming our way.

The middle class is screwed. Face it, the American people don't want to have to decide things for themselves anymore, they want "big daddy" government to take care of everything for them. Yeah, so did the Romans.....

There will be no economic recovery. There will be no jobs growth, and in a couple of years the sheeple still won't understand.

I’m just surprised at how bad Romney got his ass kicked. I never thought it would have ended up being a landslide in the other direction. This is the saddest part that the majority of our culture embraces the values that Obama holds. In that sense our system worked, conservatism and Godly values are the minority now. Our country will quickly tailspin into the annals of history now, a nation that had it all but squandered everything in the name of fairness and equality.

Four more years of blaming Bush and burning money. Go figure.

I guess the American dream has been transformed into the American dole.

Swirling to the left we continue onward.....waiting for the loud gurgle at the end.

What a revolting development this is!

The Republicrat Party is as dead as last year's Thanksgiving Turkey! Reform it as either the Conservative or the Tea Party or the Oath Takers Party! The 'faithful' should leave this stinking sinking ship and board a new ship that will refuse to engage in bi-partisanship with the American Communist Party!

This next four years will not be a re-run, rather it will be an accelleration that will complete the ruination of America and drive it directly into hell!

Patriotic Americans need to band together and obtain the records locked away that prove that this miserable excuse for a human being is a phony plant!

His accomplishments are legion:

An impressive list of a pathetic, sociopath, Muslim Communist's accomplishments!

First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, receive it, and then deny he was a foreigner later in his life.

First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in. (How is that even possible??)

First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States

First President to violate the War Powers Act. (Libya,the Sudan, the Congo and Central African Republic.)

First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

First President to defy a Federal Judge's court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.

First President to require all Americans to purchase a product, many of them don't need or want, from a third party.

First President to spend over a trillion dollars on 'shovel-ready' jobs when there was no such thing as 'shovel-ready' jobs.

First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his donors and supporters.

First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat, instead of getting the illegal immigration problem adressed by all of the government.

First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S. , including those with criminal convictions.

First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees. (BP)

First President to end America’s ability to put a man in space.

First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present, so he could stay on vacation.

First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law he doesn't agree with, unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke-out on the reasons for their rate increases.

First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory. (Boeing)

First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN...., immigration lawsuits).

First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.

First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.

First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office, 90+ to date.

First President to hide his past medical, educational and travel records.

First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

First President to go on multiple global 'apology tours'.

First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends, paid for by the taxpayer.

First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense, and to have that pet flown on government jet to be with the family on vacation.

First President to repeat "the Holy Qur’an tells us", and that, "the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth".

First President to take a 17 day vacation.

So, how is this hope and change working out for you?

Thanks, Obama zombies for helping this phony, narcissistic criminal to shove us 'Forward' to the cliff of ignominity!

This is what paganism looks like. Hell will soon follow.

This was a Christian nation. Consider what has historically happened in formerly Christian nations and you will be able to predict the future almost as if you were an Old Testament prophet.

I believe that you are right. The ‘American Dream’ has changed.

The American Dream was probably best put before the nation at high school graduation speeches.

In the ‘50’s the speaker would challenge the graduates to start a business, employ the people in this town, and provide for yourself and this community.

In the ‘70’s the speech was about being the best you could be. Work hard: school, labor, whereever you go. The sky is the limit, it is about you succeeding. But provide for yourself.

Now the American Dream seems to be: ‘Win the lottery.’ Sit back the world revolves around you, we (the gov’t) will do all for you. It takes no effort just avail yourself of all the riches out ‘there’. Someone else will give it to you. We will provide for you.

Soon they will be sitting in their own feces as their system goes bankrupt and abandons them. 1st and 2nd Amendments will be altered soon to increase the tyrants power base. The economy as we have known it will implode and paper money will be worthless in the near future.
