It appears there are more people grasping at straws of comfort when there are none than people who are angry at what Obama’s minders have turned Washington into. Poor America – what a choice.
There’s a post coming up at 11:00 a.m. and I’m not going to alter it, though it was written yesterday, before the election. ZeroHedge said yesterday:
The mood of the country continues to blacken. A simmering anger boils beneath the surface of an everyday façade of normalcy … This presidential election will only exacerbate the anger, disappointment, bitterness and fury among the populace, no matter who wins.
Over here, it’s a long way to our election perhaps but one can’t help but think that the silly people would go and put Labour in again, having learned no lessons at all from 1997-2010 and the reasons, it seems to me, would be roughly similar. It’s an FDR moment where he sings “happy days are here again” and people believe him, they will it to be so.
Romney and Cameron are seen as toffs with no understanding and the sad thing is – the people are correct in this – they do have no understanding.
And so here we are now – this man doing great evil actually believed by a desperate populace and about to unleash his fury and bankrupt America, followed by war. This is 1997 and Blair all over again or rather the following election when they hadn’t woken up to the smooth-talker yet. This is four more years of Obama in bed with the money and the corruption so bad that America actually loses its sovereignty – but obviously America can’t see that – they see Romney’s money and a machine politician, a fat cat and rejects him in favour of a wolf in bed with Them.
There have been many comments about the “religious nuts”, approving rape etc. That seems to have been a large factor. Amazing that the only face of faith is extremist in the media. What about all the people quietly going about their business and basically believing in the old America, not extreme, not particularly bland – just Americans at home and work, worried about the future? The media never portrays them.
Sure positive thinking can achieve much but not when a machine is stacked against people and they believe the lies, will themselves to believe them. This was a retreat into a comfort zone, any comfort at all, pretty please, at a multi-trillion price tag, rather than facing the harsh reality. The power of psychology, as DQS might say.
All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing.
Another four years with no hope of change.
In this environment with this economy and all the gravely important matters pressing against the very existence of this country, it should have been a tsunami election. It should have been a landslide that sent President Obama into dust heap of failed presidencies. Instead, the election was about Big Bird.
It was the rape election. The contraception election. The binders full of women election.
It was about who was born where and whether she really could claim to be a Cherokee Indian.
It was about former president George W. Bush. And it was about gay marriage.
It was about the 1 percent and the 99 percent and the 47 percent.
It was about dancing freaking horses, for crying out loud!
Just about the only thing the election wasn’t about was the economy, which everyone agrees was the only thing voters actually cared about. People tend to really care about the economy when real unemployment reaches double digits, welfare rolls fatten by one-third, politicians rack up $16 trillion in debt and the largest tax hike in the history of the world looms just weeks away.
Yet that obviously is not what decided this election. Politicians were too busy talking all about Big Bird, rape and dancing horses.
The most disturbing issue of the election was how President Obama managed to win re-election in places like Ohio and Pennsylvania and Michigan by talking about the highly unpopular bailout of General Motors. By taking billions of dollars in hard-earned money from taxpayers during a deep recession and giving it to a couple of huge companies, Obama managed to buy the votes he needed to eke out re-election. Taxpayers remain on the hook to the tune of $25 billion.
Amazing. And when googling what the election means for America,. the front page had no less than five pieces by Soros bumped up the rankings. They own the machine.
