O No! Obama Re-elected

The US has inexplicably re-elected President Obama,¬†after one of the worst four-year¬†terms on record, an incredibly divisive Presidency, and it seeming just a week ago that Mitt Romney would win. Was it Sandy? The Christie hug? Romney’s Mormonism? Just the fact that Obama was “the known factor”? We will probably never know. Mitt Romney is a good, decent and competent man and deserved to win. Obama is the opposite.

Obama and his far-left backers will claim some sort of mandate. The truth is that Obama won a very narrow vote, that is if he even carries the popular vote, by winning most of the toss-up states by a hair. Romney on the other hand won most of his electoral votes easily. The House and Senate remain basically the same and the GOP appears to have made further gains at the state level, making Obama’s re-election almost unfathomable to me. The country remains bitterly divided. Do we really think that this President is the one to bring us together now after all the damage he has done!? Hardly!

Well America, you get what you deserve. Here is my prediction for the next four years from ‘The One”: more class warfare and bitterly partisan politics, higher taxes, economic stagnation if not recession, more debt, inflation, a possible major devaluation in the dollar, more chaos in the Middle East, and a possible domestic terrorist attack. A pretty grim picture if you ask me. This may be the end of America as we know it. I don’t want to hear ANY complaining from anyone down the road who voted for Obama or did not vote. You just lost your right to complain.

I hope Obama has the common sense to now govern to the middle, but I doubt it. That is not who he is. The only bright spot I can see is that if Obama governs like his leftist self, he may end up destroying the Democratic party for decades, paving the way for a massive GOP majority in 2016.

Obama has alienated a massive swath of the American public with his class warfare, his “you didn’t build that”, his 1% versus 99%, his thinly veiled race-baiting, and his “fair share”. To many he is no longer the president. It will take a lot of fence-mending to regain any sort of majority approval.

 

The Left’s Dark View of America

The left has decried Donald Trump’s “dark” view of America in his inauguration speech. They are guilty of hypocrisy and projection, par for the course.

Fact: in many big cities violent crime is way up. Especially murders among blacks.

Fact: we have millions more in poverty and on government assistance since Obama became president. Drug use is rampant.

Fact: anarchy and crime are on the rise in Democrat-run cities, and at the border.

Fact: millions have lost their good paying jobs.

That is what Trump is talking about. Instead, the left’s “dark” view of America is characterized by a supposed return of slavery, women being jailed for seeking abortions, illegals and Muslims being rounded-up and deported or detained, and the environment being destroyed.

Who has the real “dark” view of America?

Horrible Leftist Hag and Her Husband Kicked Off Plane for Harrassing Trump Supporter

The left is out of their minds. This is just the beginning folks. Buckle up. We cannot allow ourselves to be intimidated by the Madonna’s, the “million” women, the far-left media, and horrible leftists like this harpy. Civility and tolerance do not exist with the left. Notice the clapping and cheers at the end.

DC Attendance Numbers

I do not trust for one second media reports of attendance numbers at various events. Media is reporting the inauguration drew 250,000 at most while the women’s march drew 470,000 and Obama’s 2009 inauguration reported drew close to 2 million. Much of the estimates are based on Park Service photos.

Number one, the media lies, all the time. Number two, it is pretty clear that the Park Service does too, as it is likely infected with the same leftists that the rest of the government is. It can release a photo taken at any time – there is no time stamp. For years the Park Service has inflated left-wing marches while downplaying causes on the right such as the March for Life which will occur next Friday. Nowhere will you hear about the likely 500,000 to one million marchers in the March for Life this week. Finally, it is well-documented that far-left protesters in some cases closed down entry points and PREVENTED people from attending the inauguration. Many others no doubt stayed away to avoid the crazies. I have one friend in DC who was in that camp.

This was apparently commonplace:
