Kevin, the democrat machine was much better
than the repubs -- or anyone else -- anticipated. The "theory" was that turn out wouldn't be what it was in 2008 and that the repubs were more "energized." Well, in fact turnout was actually lower yesterday than in the 2008 or 2004 election, BUT the demos, while losing a portion of their '08 base, were good at scaring up more sheeple --- er, voters. But I repeat myself.
Republican turnout at political events seemed good and well energized but it simply did not translate into votes.
Limbaugh did a hole show today on how we're now "outnumbered" by the moocher and entitlement class and those who want big brother govt. We now have to do a better job of getting the conservative message out.
So far as your "wish Romney would have won, so you guys could see that he would have continued the spending. When will you ever learn, BOTH parties are fiscally irresponsible,"
the repubs were, basically, only "good" during Clinton's term when they had a "contract with America." Bush was actually not bad until the demorats took over in 2006. His problem was being "a uniter, not a divider." You mix water & mud and all you get is a concoction you still won't want to drink. Bush should have been "Bush the Conquerer" or "Conan the Barbarian" or whatever it took to override & defeat his political enemies.
"Never do your enemy a minor injury."
Would Romney have continued the same spending? I sincerely doubt it as he had a far better grasp of good business and how to shrink spending. Why pick Ryan otherwise?
How would that have translated into real action? Dunno.
With the repubs only controlling the house and Harry Reid still acting as a gigantic [email protected]
@gon of a spoiler in the senate it's completly possible little would happen.
Romney is given far too much credit for "Obamacare." Romney's law covered only a small % of the Mass population and had no new taxes. Obamacare applies to everyone and has 21 new taxes and remains the largest tax increase on the middle class in history.
Speaking on the phone with my mother today I learned she'd been to her general practitioner (who is also my doctor) and spoke to his nurse, briefly, about Obama and this. The nurse, Christie, said they're all scared to death about Obamacare and don't think people will like what it actually turns out to be at all.
There will be rationing and there will be "death panels" although they will not be called that, despite what the top demorats claim. It cannot work out otherwise. There simply will not be enough doctors to make the system work as the idiot Washington insiders believe it will, and that's just mathematics.
But Obamacare is going to be The Law of the Land
now, for sure. Romney would only have been able to repeal it had the repubs also won the full kongress and not only did that NOT happen, the repubs lost seats in both yet retain some control in the house.
So we're screwed.
My mother, my sister, they're screwed.
My brother-in-law is screwed.
And you're screwed.
So enjoy it. It's coming to your town soon.:twisted:
