It looks like I’ll be around for another four years, or however long it takes for the Berg lawsuit to finally prove Obama’s ineligibility, Obama’s impeached, or he’s run out of town by the Peggys of the country who will be so distraught when they find out Obama can’t wave a magic wand and magically fill up her gas tank and pay her mortgage. Let’s all cross our fingers that it’s the former, rather than the latter.
That said, I’ve been putting off writing this post. My mind has been a jumble of disappointment, heartache, and sheer astonishment. I apologize that this post will probably be disjointed, but I’m just going to let my thoughts spill out as they come to me.
I only caught a little bit of Obama’s victory speech, so I can’t really offer a reaction to the whole thing. But was the segment where he declared “Yes, we can” as the new national statement, with the crowd chanting it back at him, did anybody else think that was kinda creepy?
Unlike what the Democrats were hoping, Obama did not receive a mandate. This was a remarkably close race everywhere, which means he does not enjoy such a vast majority that he’ll be able to get away with radical left-of-the-left policies.
I am so incredibly, incredibly disappointed that the Democrats’ fraudulent primary, unimaginable amounts of money, and complete media manipulation has been vindicated. I believe this has set us so far back with regard to campaign reform that it’s absolutely sickening. I keep thinking about all the good that could have been done in this country with the three quarters of a billion dollars at Obama’s disposal during the campaign, it just makes my heart sink.
I’m just in absolute shock that we have a President Hussein.
Since we’ve just elected another Jimmy Carter, I’m rather interested to see if this will lead to another revolution within the Republican party two to four years from now. I really miss Reagan, so I’d be completely happy with a true Reagan successor bringing true honor, respect, and leadership back to the Republican party. I may not be a Republican, but I do believe they have a positive impact on this country and that their influence is needed to balance out the influence of the Democrats.
I am so, so, so, so relieved that enough Republican senators held on to their seats so that we can avoid a supermajority in the Senate. The House is pretty remarkably uneven, but at least the Senate isn’t beyond filibuster. Checks and balances are absolutely integral to our survival, so I am relieved that we have at least managed to retain a portion of that in our government.
President Hussein. Seriously.
I thought McCain’s concession speech was very respectable, eloquent, civilized, and well delivered. Above all else, no one can possibly claim that McCain ever sacrificed his dignity throughout this election. He has remained dignified, classy, and above all else, he was most certainly post-racial, which I believe is to be commended.
Okay, time for something horribly catty, but I just can’t help myself. What the hell was up with Michelle Obama’s dress!?! That was the most unflattering thing I think I have ever seen. It made her hips and behind look gigantic, the way it split up the color made her appear chopped off in unflattering ways, and that red. Holy crap, that splotch of red. Sorry, but it just looked like a blood splatter. She may be our next first lady, but Jackie Kennedy she most certainly is not. I really hope she can find herself a better stylist.
We better prepare ourselves for four gaffe-tastic years with Joe Biden as the VP, and the inevitable plethora of teleprompter-free moments with Obama. In the gaffe department, the two of them are going to make Dan Quayle look like an intellectual.
I’m still really curious to know how much of an influence ACORN and voter fraud in general had on this election.
Please, PUMA Democrats, do not give up on your fight now! Your party needs reform now more than ever. Please don’t give up, don’t let them to continue to walk all over you now that they have ultimate power, now that their behavior has been vindicated. Don’t give up, don’t give in!
I’m cheering for Philip J. Berg even harder now.
I cannot believe that we have elected a President who flat out would not qualify for an upper level security clearance. That boggles my mind.
Damn, my liberal brother is going to be insufferable during Thanksgiving.
My biggest hope is that we will somehow find a way to prevent the Democrats from instituting socialized medicine. If we cannot avoid this, I honestly have no clue what options I will have left. Where could I go on this Earth to avoid socialized medicine?
In other news, my desktop died today. Man, it was just a bad day all the way around.
Almost more than anything else, I feel so cheated that I cannot be thoroughly thrilled over the fact that we just elected the first African American President of the United States. I am so disappointed that I can’t be happy about this. Ever since I left that segregated first grade classroom all those years ago, I have been looking forward to the day when we could get beyond that bigotry and look up to a black President. But I am literally so disheartened that of all the African American presidents we could have had, we got him. Of all the brilliant, qualified, dignified, exceptional African Americans we could have had, we got Obama. We got a man with no experience, no credentials, no solid record, a plethora of questionable associates, and goodness knows what else.
And worst of all, if he fails spectacularly, if his leadership leaves us more vulnerable, more unstable, and more bitter, he will have made the climb to the Presidency that much harder for an African American leader who is qualified, who is exceptional, who is experienced, who is a good and proven leader. I really wish I could be happy about this historic day, but I can’t, because of who this leader is.
Lastly, President Obama is not my President. He will not be, unless by some miracle, he really can turn this country around without digging us deeper into the hell hole of socialism. Barring that, Barack Hussein Obama will never be my president. And that makes me so very sad indeed.
Please feel free to share your thoughts. I’ll probably add more as I continue to make sense of the thoughts whirling through my mind.
