Only in America can a president who inherits a deep recession and whose policies have actually made the effects of that recession worse get re-elected. Only in America can a president who wants the bureaucrats who cant run the Post Office to micromanage the administration of every Americans health care get re-elected. Only in America can a president who kills Americans overseas who have never been charged or convicted of a crime get re-elected. And only in America can a president who borrowed and spent more than $5 trillion in fewer than four years, plans to repay none of it and promises to borrow another $5 trillion in his second term get re-elected.
Whats going on here?
What is going on is the present-day proof of the truism observed by Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, who rarely agreed on anything in public: When the voters recognize that the public treasury has become a public trough, they will send to Washington not persons who will promote self-reliance and foster an atmosphere of prosperity, but rather those who will give away the most cash and thereby create dependency. This is an attitude that, though present in some localities in the colonial era, was created at the federal level by Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt, magnified by FDR, enhanced by LBJ, and eventually joined in by all modern-day Democrats and most contemporary Republicans.

It is spot on. It is an excellent summary of what is wrong with Obama, the federal system, and the uni-party.
If Fox News hasn’t figured ut yet that this election was stolen, the other networks certainly won’t say anything. There is something extremely fishy about how the entire kabuki election was scripted, down to all the liberal polling outfits getting their predictions right to the last percentage mark.
If we don’t ban early voting and absentee voting for federal elections, we will never have an honest election again. I’m for dipping the index finger into indelible ink at the polling place myself.
Only in America can a president who should have been hanged for treason be reelected.
I was watching some of Fox news and they were talking about Obama and his legacy , about he is going to compromise and work with the GOP to help the country , I laughed so hard I fell out of my chair
This election is still beyond comprehension to me...I don’t care what nationality you are, who in their right mind re-elects the worst president in US history? I’m going to answer my own question: The takers now officially outnumber the producers thanks to the democratic whack left party. It’s the only answer. Obama is as dumb as a box of rocks and he was re-elected by the takers...Give me more from people who work. Going Galt sooner than later.
Dear Judge Andrew P. Napolitano: The election was STOLEN by the democrat party. I do not know exactly how, but the election was stolen to favor the incumbent.
Obama votes >10 million less than 2008.
Romney votes >2 million less than McCain in 2008.
I am only an engineer, but it smells like a whole bunch of Romney votes disappeared between the voting machine and the final tally.
Will someone please tell me where I am mistaken?
2008 = cult of personality
2012 = cult of dependency
And what follows financial collapses class?....
There is no question. What will follow is war, a big global and total one. Which may be exactly what the world needs to get rid of the jihadis and marxists.
Thinning the herd by some 2-5 billion.
It’s also a second term for the first affirmative action president.
Apresident who borrowed and spent more than $5 trillion in fewer than four years, plans to repay none of it and promises to borrow another $5 trillion in his second term get re-elected.
Those who voted for him is proof that America has more stupid people than any other country in the world.
History tells us what comes next is Socialism, Communism, and Dictatorship, followed by a bloody revolution.
We are currently moving towards total Government and the pace has just accelerated.
Frog in boiling water! It will happen, but slowly enough to slide on by. Look at post World War 2 Great Britain - they used to rule the world, then they chose Socialism - Great no more..
An election eve story that was completely and utterly ignored, but that has not been denied by the WH, is that Valerie Jarrett has been engaged for several months in secret negotiations with the Iranians over their nuclear program.
How could any responsible executive put this unqualified evil numbskull of a woman in charge of a mission of such grave importance? What could possibly be the purpose other than mischief bordering on treason?
Excellent article that just goes to show how the education system has failed to properly teach the masses, but has succeeded in brainwashing those same masses, thus turning them into zombies who vote Democrat.
the good news is that Iran prefers to take out others before they hit the US.
