Yay U.S.S.A.!!

It'll be interesting to see what comes next.  I don't see the GOP ever winning after this.  If they can't beat Obama this year given his liabilities, they certainly can't beat Hillary in 2016 - especially after amnesty is expanded.  Looks like one-party rule for the foreseeable future.  Definitely a good night for EBT cards, Social Security Disability Insurance, 99 weeks of jobless benefits, half-rate student loan interest rates, food stamps, free cell phones, free contraception, and whatever other handouts we can't afford that are needed to cobble together this super majority. 
 To add insult to injury:
Richard Tisei (R) is not looking good in my congressional district against John Tierney (D) despite his illegal offshore gambling ring family and convicted money-laundering wife.  Completely dispicable.  Also, fake Indian Elizabeth Warren was voted the first (female) Cherokee (yeah, right) Senator from Mass.  Instead of centrist Scott Brown who only voted with the GOP 54% of the time, we now have our very own Nancy Pelosi.

Some interesting blog facts to wrap up:

Elect Mitt Romney!

It was reported that Obama ended his campaign with a half-empty arena on election eve.  I was at the Romney rally in Manchester, NH and it was packed.  Several thousand more showed up but were not able to make it inside.  I was only a couple people behind the barrier - close enough to shake his hand afterwards.  I didn't get home til 2AM, but it was a fun time.
I hope the enthusiasm out there for a president that not only takes office, but takes responsibility, is enough to buck these polls in the battleground states.  I'm hoping for a Chick-Fil-A election.

It boils down to this: If you think things could be better, vote for Mitt Romney.  If you think things could be worse, vote for Barack Obama.

If You're Voting for Obama - Is It For... Revenge?

Revenge for what, exactly, Mr. President?

I prefer Mitt Romney's message, thank you very much:

Lesson Learned from Hurricane Sandy

When something like helping hurricane victims needs to happen quickly and efficiently, what's the first thing you do?  You get the government red tape and regulations out of the way - see the first 1 min or so of this clip of Obama below.  That's why the Republicans believe that a smaller government just works better.
This reminds me a bit of an old Seinfeld skit where he talks about a pilot coming on the intercom after takeoff is delayed to reassure the passengers that they'll go faster and make up the time in the air.  Seinfeld says, "Why don't they go faster all the time?"

When you think of the biggest problems facing our nation that need to be addressed ASAP, like the economy and healthcare, additional government with its rules and regulations is not efficient and is not the approach that will get the best results.

I love this photo that was taken during the President's helicopter tour of the damage:

Romney Cares About Women, Too - He's Just Not So Hell-Bent on Getting in Their Pants

There is not much dignity coming out of the Obama campaign lately.  There are two conflicting emotions for me when I watch Obama's recent "sex ad".  The first thing I feel is complete embarrassment at this ploy by the President to win over women.  The women I know have a lot more spine than the Obama campaign gives them credit for.  They keep their sex lives and birth control choices to themselves and do not especially care what the government or society thinks of their choices.  Same goes for the gay people I know.  I don't know any women who consider free birth control to be the most pressing issue facing our country right now.  With a $16T debt and $1T deficits, it's not something I support.  It's just another handout to buy some votes.  I laughed when I saw Vladimir Putin ads with the same references to sex and virgins - now I'm disgusted that we've sunk to the same level.
The second emotion I feel upon seeing this ad is a mix of hope and relief.  It's a sign of a floundering campaign for reelection - desperation by a losing candidate to scrape together a few more votes.  I see this ad and am pretty sure that I'm not the only one throwing up in my mouth a little bit.  I'm tired of a President promoting such a dependent society.

While we're on this topic, it's true that Republicans tend to be pro-life.  That doesn't mean that it's part of their legislative agenda, though.  It just means that they personally don't support abortion and don't want to be complicit in it through public financing of it.  Democrats suggesting that a Romney win will somehow result in a ban on a woman's right to make her own personal choice are resorting to scare tactics to get their candidate over the line.  People supporting Romney are fighting for Cut, Cap, and Balance to end the last 12 years of accelerating accumulation of the national debt.  That was the impetus of the Tea Party.  They are simultaneously disgusted with the blatant lies from Obama, particularly surrounding the Benghazi cover-up.  Abortion is not the issue that is compelling people to vote against Obama and is not something that is likely to change under Republican control.

Hurricane Sandy to the Rescue!

I think it's fair to say that nobody is hoping for a direct hit from Hurricane Sandy more than Barack Obama.
Anything to divert the mainstream media from the new developments on Benghazi!  Today's story from Fox News details how three requests for help during the 7-hour firefight in Benghazi were received and turned down - how the Navy SEALs who died even had the location of incoming mortars that eventually killed them identified with a laser target to facilitate an aerial hit.  One was named Tyrone Woods.  He had disobeyed direct orders to stand down and went with several others from a nearby CIA annex in an attempt to rescue the ambassador.  It's becoming clearer by the day that the administration failed to provide adequate security to the Libyan ambassador under threat, turned down three requests for assistance during the actual attack, and then lied to the American people and the world at a U.N. assembly about the attack being the result of a protest provoked by a youtube video posted by an American "misusing" his rights to free speech.  The father of the fallen SEAL says Hillary even told him (over his son's coffin) at Andrews AFB that they would arrest and prosecute the film maker.  Joe Biden asked him, "Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?"

You'd think CNN and ABC News would find this story newsworthy - I guess it's still just too "political" for them.  Rather than endure more hard-hitting interviews like the one below from 9News in the battleground of Colorado, Obama is hoping to spend next week's news cycle administering aid to Northern Virginia.  In fact, the best outcome for Obama would be disaster declarations from Pennsylvania and Ohio, too!.

Thanks to Kyle Clark at 9News, we now know what Obama's answers to any Romney attacks on the Libya issue would have been in the 3rd debate.  (Watch the first 1:42 of this video)  At this point, the pieces are coming together and the facts are catching up with this administration.
