Okay, I was wrong so I’m done tryin to call elections. 4 years from now I am just going to say nothing.
How anyone can fail so fully and win re-election is beyond me.
Obviously America is becoming a nation of takers and not makers.
So flame away. I was wrong, horribly so, so go ahead and take your shots.

Who the hellare you, anyway? Didn’t you once have a band with Frank and Reynolds?
At least you spared me weeks of anxiety. You, Ravi, Ls et al. comforted for some time.
Now, I just don’t know what to do. It all seems futile.

The lesson learned is that there are no political saviors out
there, no one is coming…not now, not 2016, not ever…just live
your own lives and F politics, I’m done.

I also was wrong, utterly wrong, with my prediction that “it’s over for Obama,” made last Thursday 1 November.
I’m embarrassed. I will try never to do that again.
Obviously the MSM understand America ‒ thenew America ‒ much better than I.
We must adapt to survive. Not give up, adapt.
Another Reagan will emerge. Things haven’t gotten bad enough for that
to happen yet. Romney didn’t have it, that’s obvious. Many here knew it
last spring, including Jim Robinson.
Maybe Newt could have done it. I have my doubts. Anyway, it’s a waste of time worrying about it.

(If the Constitution can be a living document, I guess a corporation can be a person.)
Don’t be so hard on yourself. We at least got the 47%-53% thing
right. Only now we’re the 47%, but who knew?
But rest assured, the
tyranny of the majority (i.e., slavery) has never worked out, so
eventually we’ll be free again. At least, those of us who survive the
coming years. Good luck, everyone!

Nate Silver is the man. Sorry to say. He called it exactly right.

No flaming from me. I had better hope for this country. I don’t
recognize what America has become. I am just in a state of total
disbelief. I don’t understand how people can vote for him.I’m sworn off
politics for awhile I think. This is more than I can take right now.

You and me both. I’ve been telling everyone, confidently, that
this would be a R/R landslide. I’ve never been more wrong about a
Presidential Election in my life. No more predicting for me...time for
bullets & butter, I fear.

HEY! You got your bullets in my butter!
You might be right.
I thought the Tea Party/John Galt crowd was the upcoming wave, but now it looks like they were a flash in the pan.
How on Earth can the GOP run a successful campaign once things have changed this deeply?
Here in Oregon we used to elect Republicans now there is no chance in
Hell that another Pubbie will ever hold statewide office, I think the
same can be said for the nation as a whole, unless we have a total
collapse, which probably won’t happen.
We’ll just become another Greece or France…
…with a One Trillion Dollar armed forces budget…
Damn it, this has been a day from Hell.

There’s some comiseration, and half-hearted seccession talk, and then the last post in the thread:

Obama’s Eviction Notice: November 2012
“We are socialists, we
are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation
of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly
evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of
responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy
this system under all conditions.” –Adolf Hitler, Quoted in John
Toland, “Adolf Hitler”, p22 4.
The hand sign on the right is that
made by The hands of the Führer Adolf Hitler as he organized his
speech. This picture captures Hitler’s hands as he speaks of the unity
of the National Socialist and socialist ideas.
Not sure how true this is, but it is worth a look. Picture at link.

There are many similarities between Obama and Hitler.

Of course there are. We’ll be annexing theSudetenland any day now, and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it.

ZOMG! NAZI EAGLES SPREADING THEIR NAZI WINGS OVER EVERYTHING!!
DAMN YOU BARACK OHITLER!!DAMN YOU TO HELL!!!
And last, but not least – PROOF POSITIVE that the Nazi Eagle has wrapped its foul wings around this Presidency:
I TOLDJA! DIDN’T I TELLYA????
I have never seen that picture attributed to Hitler. I have been
through a host of WWII material, and never seen anything but the raised
arm Nazi salute.
Maybe you were thinking of the USA Pre-Roosevelt?
That having been said, the other similarities between
obama-shits and HitlerYouth are chilling.
My father killed many
former Hitler Jugend during his war and I will be glad to answer the
call to duty during the next war, if it ever comes to that.
