Someone has forgotten what happened after the Obama election amongst many conservatives
When election results occur that will make the lives of people allready struggling even harder it's hardly surprising that there will be anger and resentment is it? This was always going to be a very charged election considering it was are recall and how polarized the state is.
We did away with collective bargaining here in Tennessee at about the same time WI did. We had a couple of small protest but nothing to hardly mention. Certainly not death threats against our Governor like what happened last night. See for yourself.
Really? Really/ What conservative slapped who when Obama got elected? Remember this is the man who was put forth as a savior. There were people "fainting" at his campaign rallies. There were videos produced with people singing worship songs to him. Now they are all mad at him.
It makes me wonder how they'll react when Obama looses in November. If last night's any indication, who knows. Will they all sit around, smoke a joint, and cry or will they decide to loot and burn down the only stores in their neighborhood?
I think when an individual is held up to be a messiah, there is only one way their approval can move. I also believe Democrats in general will not have a difficult time accepting a Romney win. Walker is a tad more conservative then Romney.
I'm not concerned about the ones who'll accept a Romney win. Some will with nothing more than a grumble or two. I wonder about the left-wing, liberal and progressive nut jobs that will go off when their "messiah" looses - ie. the idiots that were crying and fainting during his last campaign. Wait, lets back up. His first campaign since he's never stopped campaigning.
Well it will be portrayed at least as bad as this...where ..and there are some posting here...who will tell you it should be IMPOSSIBLE for a conservative to win an election. That drum has been beat since they lost in 2000. Sorry folks. The people actually got to have a voice this time and the jig is up. No more sending bus loads of union thugs to terrorize children in the houses of their opponents. Maybe no more bus loads of union people across state lines to do voter fraud.
Oh yes they do that. We all know it. It's the Chicago way.
No they didn't lose! They were supposed to win...but Dick Cheney has this secret moon base see.....and he has this super computer there see......and all they did was hack into the world wide web and steal that election!!!! They did it again!~ This time Cheney did it from the moon where we cannot prosecute him! Curses!
Yes, absolutely. When Romney wins in a landslide election, Obama supporters will resort to every distasteful activity imaginable, unlike 2008 McCain supporters who have gracefully supported the elected president since he was sworn in. As usual, your instincts are 100% spot on.
Obama isn't going to lose. It will be close, but he isn't going to lose. The GOP didn't learn from the Democrats in the 2004 election. You can't put a flip-flopping liberal from Massachusetts who pretty much agrees with the President on everything and expect to win. (:
Desperate times calls for desperate actions. Democrats now have to act like Republicans!
Start a war so you can make billions of dollars disappear mysteriously(on purpose) Democratic Governors and Boards of elections have to "fix" their poll machines and purge the voter rolls of White male Republicans and all evangelicals! Turn rich businessmen against rich trust fund babies. Start a rumor about how texas oil men are poisoning the wells of the Countrys' farmers so they have to sell it cheap. And by all means, start the Coffee Bean Party and call for a Coffee Bean March on Washington to protest the Republican destruction of the Middle Class!
Good to know. Try the accumulation of 200+ years to dig out of. I know Obama doesn't have the answer, because the answer doesn't lay with government. It lays with the individual person being responsible about their rights and life. It will be taken in stride, just like any other election.
However, having said that- I wouldn't mind having a candidate that has a mixture of all three- Ron Paul, Romney and Obama. Unfortunately, there's not one.
Unfortunately, we have far too many people in this country who would rather depend on government to take care of them rather than doing it themselves.
We need a president who'll say, "Get off your lazy butt and do it yourself." Kinda like Mom and Dad use to say to me a few decades ago, instilling a strong work ethic and how to take responsibility for myself.
Unfortunately, again, that person either wouldn't stand up to the media scrutiny, is smart enough not to allow it, or both.
Of course. However, there are a percentage of the people who are homeless choose to be homeless because attempting to gain equal rights and equality has proven that many other citizens don't mind what is happening or just don't see it, or just don't understand rights or freedom. Until true equality and equal rights happens, you're only going to watch the work ethic of people get worse. And, that's what government wants. Government wants people to be dependent on it, it requires it. Don't expect it to be a politician.
"Let me add some unbidden (and probably unwelcome) praise for Ted Kennedy to Harold Meyerson's post. Though it may not be featured in the Ken Burns video tonight, the last lion of liberalism is the main reason for passage of No Child Left Behind education reform and the Medicare prescription drug benefit -- the main domestic legacies of the Bush administration. He was also a major ally in President Bush's attempt to pass comprehensive immigration reform, arguing, "It's a defining issue about the kind of country we are. It's a moral issue. It's how we treat people."
Few are willing to honor these achievements. Conservatives generally repudiate them as costly (Medicare) and inappropriately liberal (NCLB and immigration reform). Liberals tend to ignore any accomplishment tainted by Bush's support. But millions of poor seniors still get their prescriptions every month pretty much for free, thanks to Bush and Kennedy.
Kennedy has often been a determined, even ferocious, partisan. But he is primarily a legislator -- actually an increasingly rare calling in the legislature. He has never adopted the viewpoint that a partisan victory is preferable to an actual accomplishment. And that is worthy of praise."
True, I personally am never surprised at the levels of ignorance some individuals will stoop to. I believe the worst protest infiltrators are those in Law Enforcement that hold equal disdain for any group of protesters.
You do know that Walker is being investigated for corruption and embezzling, right? He's using campaign money to fund a legal defense team. He's a garden variety "rough boy"...not really rough, but willing to lie, cheat and steal.
Romney, on the other hand, is a real rough boy. Oh, he doesn't get HIS hands dirty, but he engineers the dirt. You don't have money stashed all over the world by being mr. honest nice guy...do you honestly not know that?
I suggest you look up Cofer Black and Detachment 88...you may find why he was Mitt'sters military advisor. May even give you clues about what Mitt has in mind for "the little people" here!
neither Scott Brown nor Mitt Romney called this scoundrel out. Not a word.
Oh--and I have it on very good authority that Walker is actually a citizen of another country, and that Mitt is hiding several other wives. They both hate children and animals, and have no allegiance to this country.
And we both know if this had been Republicans doing such things, all the networks would be screaming their heads off. It would suddenly be newsworthy and you'd probably one of the ones screaming the loudest.
Most of the media is liberal, LMC. I will admit, here lately, they at least seem to be taking a harder look at Obama. That's something they should have done 4 years ago, as with EVERY person who runs for POTUS.
You do realize that the New Black Panther party only have a few thousand members, probably much less that say the KKK? Their threats are overrated. It started out as a story of a couple who may or may not have been armed hanging out in front of a poll to now being that they were inside making sure people voted a certain way
1. Scott Walker won that recall mostly because people didn't think a recall was appropriate in that situation.
2. Republican seats were eroded in the Wisconsin legislature.
3. Obama is going to win in November. This is all pretty much a moot point.
FWIW, anyone who votes for Romney because he is against gay marriage or because he promises to repeal Obamacare needs to re-evaluate the decision. Anyone who votes for Romney because they honestly believe that Obama has done nothing for the country in the last 3+ years needs to go back to see what has actually happened.
Cody, please enlighten us. What specifically has Obama accomplished in this term? I'm talking about things that are good for all citizens. I honestly can't think of a single thing he could use as a campaign talking point.
Hi Poolman, I am going to ask for some trust on this one, we have talked many times before and you know I always have a multitude of independent links to back my statements I don't have my computer with me however so so links on this one (maybe one or two grabbed off the internet but not my usual research) anyway since the election of Obama, unemployment has dropped (yes by the same scale as used under Bush) consumer confidence has grown by 8 percent, don't ask don't tell was repealed (yeah I know not everyone thinks this a good thing but I have no time for homophobes), GDP has grown, he has ended one war and wound down another and the economy has grown.
Josak, nice to see you again. I take your word for these things and you do your homework well. My biggest concern has been the inability to get a grip on the runaway spending and outrageous waste we all are aware of. Things like "don't ask don't tell" only apply to a small percentage of our population. I know our President is not totally in control of the spending. He has 535 other elected officials helping him drain the tax payer coffers. Some of the tax payer money he invested in companies like Solyndra were very questionable. I just have not seen a great many positive moves by this president that were not directed toward one or the other special interest groups. The things you cited were of benefit to all our citizens. Some things are difficult or impossible to measure whether they be considered good or bad.
This is what I cant stand about the GOP. Everything a Republican does is for the benefit of the country without question.
However, everything the Democrats do is evil and repugnant. Obama hasn't done anything, but Bush did so much for us. He was a shining example of how a president should behave. Bush never vacationed and did everything he could to bring down the deficit.
This is why I can't believe anyone takes the GOP seriously.
Well actually something did go wrong. We lost a stealth copter in the attack. Look he was commander-in-chief and gave the go ahead but there were lots of others responsible as well and that goes for whomever is in office.
Here's something you aren't expecting. I'm gonna take up for Carter. He didn't know that attempt was happening. His staff was trying to get it done because they knew he didn't want to do it. Don't know if you were around then but he was TICKED!
I'll repeat part of it for you. First, a little background:
Since Obama announced, he has been subject to dirty lie campaigns, smears on his person, and smears on people he knew...if only to say hello! So--since Obama is attacked for his childhood, his parents, his preacher, his church,and the people he knows, here's a little friend of Mittens you may want to know about: Dirty cop and Tea Bagger, friend to both Romney and Scott Brown: Jeff Perry.
"In 1991, Officer Scott Flanagan claimed to be searching for drugs when he stuck his hand down a 14-year-old girl’s underpants. Perry was the supervising officer on scene. The official complaint alleges Perry “observed the strip search” but “did nothing to protect her.” Perry, for his part, claimed that “it did not occur in my presence, and I have no knowledge of it,’ , the Boston Globe reports.
In the second incident, in 1992, purportedly at Flanagan’s request, Perry accompanied him to a 16-year-old girl’s house. There, her parents later testified, Perry informed them that he and Flanagan had searched her for drugs, and added “oh, yeah, by the way, [she] pulled her pants down for us.”
Now--you may not have daughters, but if some creep cop tells ME my daughter pulled her pans down for him....he's getting a punch in the nose.
Also Cofer Black was his military advisor in his last go-round for prez.(or gvr--don' remember) Heard about him back some years, when he was running Detachment 88 in Myanmar. Military Occupation.
Of course, you won't care, because to some-- Mitt blows golden snots, but as far as these kind of people running this country....oh hecks no.
What could potentially cause the collapse of the United States? Would it be an attack from overseas, terrorism, economical collapse inward, or from another civil war? These are all just examples, feel free...
