It's called "hope". Because what else is there to do but try even harder and do even more and become even more politically active to try to stop it. It went from "We can avoid the problem" to "We can deal with this problem if we all work together".

And let's not forget all of the Ron Paulers (both independent and liberal conservatives") who projected all of their extreme idealism and wild fantasies onto a single candidate. When I say "extreme idealism", I don't mean that the ideals are bad - just unaccomplish-able for a single president in one term (or even in two). But take the extremist Marxist (Obama) who thought he'd fundamentally change the government when he became president. He couldn't do it one term - nor will he get it in two (hopefully). People forget that the Constitution, which they're so eager to tell others to read, purposefully divides the power in government among the Executive branch, Congress, and the Courts. These people quit trying when Ron Paul failed.

I like Ann. She's what happens when you combine the best elements of beauty, wicked smarts, and American values. I would also add that Romney lost because... 1. Voter fraud (liberal grassroots supporters, illegal voter registrations, the voting machines, and the people in charge of voting in some states like Florida) 2. Free stuff and perks to special interest groups via power-abusing presidential executive orders 3. Bitter and unintelligent primary-loser supporters who never reconciled their differences 4. Too many (3 million apparently) Republicans who only watched MSNBC and Obama's remarks 5. Some anti-Mormons missed the bumper sticker that said, "I'll take the Mormon over the moron." And let's not forget the idiots.
Mitt may never lived in poverty, but he did live as humbly as most. He lived in small apartments when he was first married and during his first baby, and had his down days in the early years of his career. But he learned, and progressed, and worked hard. Building his reputation helped him to be successful.

Is There Anyone Obama Won't Betray?

In opposition to this, George W Bush got it right. Saddam Hussein was the icon of his terrorist state. When the time was right, Saddam Hussein was captured, and turned over to his own people to be tried by his own people for his crimes. He was convicted by his own new government, and was sentenced to a public hanging by his own people. His death marked the end of Iraq's threat against his people and against the free world.

We knew the exact location of Osama Bin Laden for about a year, and had surveillance set up around his hideout officially for over seven months. Osama had a failing kidney and required regular dialysis and was on his death bed. Osama wasn't really a threat personally - it was the Al Qaida movement that was the threat. Obama's ratings had just began a free fall due to the unpopularity of the recent Obama-Care. Obama had the icon of the still-active Al Qaida movement martyred on his deathbed, and then had the evidence/body dumped into the ocean - Chicago style. Obama's ratings recovered (back up to a near 50% overall approval rating). Osama's death showed the world slimy politics: Barack Obama's sacrifice to the voting Gods.

The Clinton Surplus Myth

jdelligatti Wrote: Aug 15, 2012 11:32 PM
I didn't read the whole article; however, I've studied the same issue. Clinton's claim was touted in general terms as a "reduction to the deficit". This was media bait and switch. Bill Clinton reduced the deficit of the annual budget. So each year's budget required less debt funding than the previous year. Pretty sleazy advertising, right? He didn't reduce our overall deficit at all - in fact, he increased it every year overall. Additionally, just like Massachusetts liberals claim about Romney, Bill Clinton left a huge structural debt. IOW He put off a lot of necessary maintenance for the next president to deal with, reduced our military to a level that is too low (many say that it led to 9/11), and signed the fair housing stuff.
Smartest guy in the room? I'll have to check on that; however, my initial thought is that Romney is the smartest man in the room. Either way they're going to make a powerhouse team!
The most classic part of all of this is that Mitt Romney is honest in his dealings, served as a full-time volunteer minister in his church for 10 years, has been married to the same woman his entire adult life, has five children who have all turned out to be good citizens, and gives more money to charity and non-profit organizations (both as a percent of his income and as an overall dollar amount) than any other politician in federal government. He donated his olympic paycheck to charity after saving the olympics, and worked as governor of MA for free. In light of his character, Mitt Romney becomes impossible to label as anything but the best candidate in this presidential race (and likely of our lifetime).
Obama has proved himself to be a user of the black and evangelical community. He claimed to be religious and to support God's commandments regarding traditional marriage. When his numbers dropped in the polls and he officially opened his campaign in a half empty stadium, he embraced homosexuality and homosexual marriage. This upcoming election isn't Democrats against Republicans – it's the moral and religious community against the morally liberal.
MORAL DEMOCRATS! THANK YOU! I'm grateful to know that we have so much overwhelming support in our affirmation to traditional marriage.
