This will be a day here on TH of much disappointment, anger, and excuse-making for Romney's loss. But take heart. I'm here to make a prediction which, if correct (and I correctly predicted Obama's win 2 months ago), should make most TH'ers a bit happier. I predict that Obama will move to the right now. Remember when the open mic caught him telling Russia's Medvedev that after the election he'd have "more flexibility"? Well, he was right about that (no pun intended). He now has the flexibility to move away from his liberal base if he feels like it. And I believe he will. For all the vitriol directed toward BHO on this website, he's not ....

Right wind politics is sick.

It is the politics of authoritarianism and suppression of the voice of the little people.

It is the politics of those who would completely disenfranchise the poor by eliminating welfare - just in case some one might be cheating and getting something they are not entitled to.

It is the politics of those who would eliminate taxes for the wealthy, and remove all workers protection and rights from work places.

It is the politics of bigotry and hatred of minority groups.

One thing it certainly is not is the politics of Jesus. Jesus was for caring for the poor and the disenfranchised. Any 'Christians' who do not know that have not studied the Gospels.

Good luck, eric. I predict he meant a quicker take over in his communist party. I'm afraid congress is in the picture with him.

Go back to 2007 when his Constitutional eligibility came up. He simply refused to show his papers and hiding them was his first Executive Order on 1/20/2008. The SC refused to hear a case on the matter. It was continued after he usurped the office. Congress made no effort to bring him to the table. They questioned John McCain but didn't say a word to Obama because he refused to be questioned.

I'm afraid hell is going to break loose unless the 47% of the "getters" increase and he takes us into communist... with congress' approval, of course. They'll have their position longed in place.

The ignorant street corner-hooker troll is back to spew more nonsense
Here's one usage of the term gentleman: The gentleman helped the fallen lady to her feet. Here's another, one we might hear from a newscaster or a police spokesman: Tonight we report on the arrest of two gentlemen who raped, sodomized and murdered an 80-year-old woman.

During earlier times, to be called a gentleman meant one was honest, brave, courteous and loyal. Today "gentleman" is used interchangeably in reference to decent people and the scum of the earth.

Much of today's language usage demonstrates a desire to be nonjudgmental. People used to shack up; now they cohabit or are living partners. Few young...
