Or: What the hell happened?
How did the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama get re-elected? An incumbent with a record that piss poor gets four more years to inflict his incompetence and malfeasance on the republic? With all the power of the now bloated and imperial federal executive branch behind him? WTF?
For a week now, the soul searching has been deep and convulsive on the side of Team (R). Good, it will serve them well in 2014 and beyond. Team (D) – not so much. In typically insipid fashion, Team (D) merely gloats over a victory that will prove pyrrhic. This victory simply gives Team (D) more time to own the failure of their policies. The economy is now officially f*cked, general war now virtually certain in the Mideast, and if the Empty Suit wants to continue blaming his “predecessor” he will need to be carrying around a mirror everywhere.
So, what the hell happened, anyway?
The executive summary has
1. Team (R) far and away has the best policies for dealing with America's most existential threats to internal stability and liberty – runaway size and scope of government, and especially the unsustainable growth of entitlement programs backed by nothing but IOUs from a national Treasury already $16 trillion in debt.
2. However, Team (D) far and away is better at mobilizing the clueless, uninformed, vulnerable, and mathematically challenged to support their sole policy program – free stuff for you, paid for by somebody else.
3. Looks like I got the answer to my May 8 post, “How Stupid *is* My Republic?”
4. Demographics are destiny, and Team (R) needs to figure out how to reach the great mass of clueless, uninformed, vulnerable, and mathematically challenged in the emerging demographics – without pandering to them by offering more free stuff paid for by somebody else. That would mean merely joining Team (D) as part of the problem, like the Bush/Hastert 2000-2006 RINO coalition did.
Further analysis to come later … I still have a living to scratch out in what remains of Barry’s dysconomy. As far as the upcoming analysis is concerned, for the basic feel of it … find the 2002 movie “Gangs of New York” and go straight to the scene where Tammany Hall rounds up all the drunks and hobos to vote Democrat on election day.
Update 2:15 pm
This is what we're up against. A 4000 vote swing at 1 am when an "election official" unilaterally decides to recount previously counted votes. Who do you think "election official" Gertrude Walker was rooting for?
Update 8:05 pm
The pessimistic side of me suspects the next four years will feel like this.
This just in on the Allen West screw job. I guess now we might find out who "election official" Gertrude Walker was rooting for. After the recount she can take the stand in her own defense if she wants.
Chaos reigns as the Allen West screw job continues to unfold. Hint: Chaos is the first clue Democrats are up to something.
Looks like "election official" Gertrude Walker gets the outcome she unilaterally decided to facilitate.
