What does $1,605,000,000 get you in American politics? Little more than a continuation of the status quo and maybe, if you’re lucky, the ability to roll joints in the Southern Rockies. In an election where the potential for major shakeups was highly probable, most of us woke up Wednesday, rubbed our eyes and realized that Barack Obama won the electoral slug fest, the Democrats retained control of the Senate, and John Boehner will continue to be the butt of late night jokes.
According to the New York Times, it cost El Duce nearly $1,000,000,000 to remain in the Oval Office. Seems it would’ve been a lot more cost effective had he just publicly declared his closet dictatorship before the election process ever began. On the flip side Mitt Romney spent over $750,000,000, had the advantage in Super PAC spending and still saw his bid for the White House fall short of an electoral college victory.
Clearly, a cash influx was never the problem for either candidate. It would appear that messaging was the bigger problem. The electorate was presented with lofty soaring rhetoric about shared prosperity and they swooned..again. Mitt Romney lobbied for a return to traditional America and a majority of Americans decided they would rather closet the Norman Rockwell America in favor of an America that Vladimir Lenin would salivate over.
For all the media fuss over Super PACs and specifically the influence of “right wing” PACs on the election, the panic was misplaced. The media’s candidate of choice won re-election and now the honeymoon continues.
Just think of all the free condoms $1,605,000,000 could have bought.
If last night’s election results are indicative of an electoral tipping point in this country, then we are staring at a bad omen. Last night’s unfolding of events gives credence to the notion that this republic now has a voting majority that is willing to opt out with regard to individual sovereignty and opt in for the care-taking collective. Last night represented an opportunity for the people to turn away from big bloated government. Instead, they gave it a big slobbering kiss. Continue Reading
Prior to Tuesday night’s debate in Hempstead, New York, Jimmy Kimmel sent out a member of his team to conduct interviews with random individuals in Hollywood, California. The interviewees were asked questions regarding the debate, but there was just one problem. The second presidential debate hadn’t happened yet. These interviews were conducted hours before the event at Hofstra University. This is comical and sad at the same time.
President Barack Obama’s allies in the press are clamoring for Tuesday night’s debate in Hempstead, New York as the Dear Leader hopes to springboard off of Joe Biden’s bully pulpit performance in Danville, Kentucky. Campaign advisers are promising a more “aggressive” tack from Obama which could force a bare-knuckled stance from Governor Mitt Romney. Paul Ryan was as polite as you could expect a politican to be on Thursday night, but don’t expect the same from Romney. If Obama takes the Biden approach in this debate, Romney will not take it lying down. Continue Reading
In a bizarre twist of what I’m sure is just coincidence or possibly dumb luck, the Obama Phone webpage is undergoing re-constructive surgery since this video went viral courtesy of Matt Drudge:
The photo featured below was the original splash page when you visited the Obama Phone website. But no more. Continue Reading
In 2008, Howard Stern made the point of showing just how ignorant supporters of then Senator Barack Obama truly were:
Fast forward to September 2012. The same drones are voting for Obama and Stern is once again proving that these people are not only clueless, but they shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a ballot. The folks at Reagan Coalition put it best:
- They have no clue who the Vice President is.
- Don’t know what Obama has done.
- Didn’t know that Osama Bin Laden was killed in 2011.
- Think that Paul Ryan was selected as Obama’s VP.
- Can’t give a cogent reason for why they will either vote for Obama or vote against Romney.
- They agree that he’s pro-life.
- Think Sarah Palin is running again.
- Think John McCain is running again.
How do free people enslave themselves to tyranny? This is how:
The day after Barack Hussein Carter appeared on Univision and admitted that the most important lesson he’s learned as president is that “you can’t change Washington from the inside”, the Republican National Committee pounced on the opportunity and released the following ad. Ah, how refreshing when Romney and the Republicans actually come out swinging.
