A Nation United? Hardly.

November 6, 2008 by thefamilyguy

How amusing this election has become. The left has a new mantra now “The election is over. We must come together and support the new president.” Coming from the group that spawned the term Bush Derangement Syndrome, that is laughable. Did you Democrats afford George Bush the same courtesy? No. You began a smear campaign the very day he was elected… a campaign that did not end until the election of Barack Obama.

I vow to treat Barack Obama with whatever respect that he might “earn” once he takes office, and I vow to hold his feet to the fire when he earns my disdain. He dug himself a big hole during the election process. President-elect Obama deeply divided America and his inauguration hovers under a cloud of national anxiety. Conservative Americans were branded as “racist” for having a different opinion. Now liberals expect us to forget all of the smears and lies of the last 6 months and march in happy lockstep behind President Obama? I rather doubt that will happen. I pray that President-elect Obama learns the wisdom of governance. Liberals have spent eight years schooling Republicans on how to smear and destroy a president. I hope that he won’t challenge half of the nation to play the same vindictive ideological games.

After Bush’s election the headlines read, “ Bush wins with 51%. Nation deeply divided”

How things have changed.

After Obama’s election the headlines read, “Obama wins with 52%. Nation united!”


There are 56,500,000 voters who did not select Barack Obama. They are not racists, they are not uneducated, and they are not mindless red-state gun toting bible clingers. They are Americans. They are truck drivers, police officers, teachers, managers, doctors, firefighters, union employees, small business owners… they are America’s backbone. President-elect Obama ignores them at his (and the nation’s) own peril. Obama has the skills to unite the nation but choosing to steer the ship hard left will create a house divided and turn those McCain voters into a fierce loyal opposition.

Obama carries a vast sea of election promises around his neck like an albatross. His first act of asking a far-left-wing shark (Rahm Emanuel) to be his chief of staff bodes ill for his promise of a bi-partisan future. His campaign trail speeches will have to be reconciled with his policies. He has repeatedly promised tax cuts for 95% of families amid a difficult economy and a credit crisis caused by an America living beyond its means. His supporters will now expect affordable and expanded health care and a speedy withdrawal from Iraq. Promised troop increases in Afghanistan, an emboldened Russia seeking to make a new name for itself, a nuclear Iran, a resurgent Hamas… all looming shadows on a presidency whose short suit is foreign policy. The far left wing (his Pelosi-Reid-MoveOn supporters) will demand: union check off cards, first-amendment-chilling fairness doctrine for radio, financial punishment (wind-fall profit taxes) for petroleum companies, pharmaceuticals and the wealthy, unrestricted abortion, an economy-chilling cap and trade policy and $9.50 minimum wage… and that is for starters.

President-elect Obama has painted himself into a dangerous corner. He will be challenged by foreign powers. His nation is sharply divided. His supporters on the street expect change. His party has gained iron-fisted control of national government, but that comes with total responsibility for the results of their policies. When the euphoria fades and the chill winter winds blow away the abandoned Obama signs, the reality of governance will loom manacingly. No Bush to blame. No Republicans to point fingers at. Just an inexperienced community organizer from Illinois and the weight of the world on his shoulders. Let’s hope he rises to the challenge… but keep a broom and dustpan handy, I suspect there will be some sweeping up of pieces to attend to in 2010.

anne coulter....right again.......

Ann Coulter
The Reign of Lame Falls Mainly on McCain
by Ann Coulter
Last night was truly a historic occasion: For only the second time in her adult life, Michelle Obama was proud of her country!

The big loser of this election is Colin Powell, whose last-minute endorsement of Obama put the Illinois senator over the top. Powell was probably at home last night, yelling at his TV, "Are you KIDDING me? That endorsement was sarcastic!"

The winner, of course, is Obama, who must be excited because now he can start hanging out in public with Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright again. John McCain is a winner because he can resume buying more houses.
And we're all winners because we will never again have to hear McCain say, "my friends."

After Bill Clinton won the 1992 presidential election, Hillary Clinton immediately announced that, henceforth, she would be known as "Hillary Rodham Clinton." So maybe Obama can now become B. Hussein Obama, his rightful name.

This was such an enormous Democratic year that even John Murtha won his congressional seat in Pennsylvania after calling his constituents racists. It turns out they're not racists -- they're retards. Question: What exactly would one have to say to alienate Pennsylvanians? That Joe Paterno should retire?

Apparently Florida voters didn't mind Obama's palling around with Palestinian activist Rashid Khalidi and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, either. There must be a whole bunch of retired Pennsylvania Jews down there.

Have you ever noticed that whenever Democrats lose presidential elections, they always blame it on the personal qualities of their candidate? Kerry was a dork, Gore was a stiff, Dukakis was a bloodless android, Mondale was a sad sack.

This blame-the-messenger thesis allows Democrats to conclude that their message was fine -- nothing should be changed! The American people are clamoring for higher taxes, big government, a defeatist foreign policy, gay marriage, the whole magilla. It was just this particular candidate's personality.

Republicans lost this presidential election, and I don't blame the messenger; I blame the message. How could Republicans go after B. Hussein Obama (as he is now known) on planning to bankrupt the coal companies when McCain supports the exact same cap and trade policies and earnestly believes in global warming?

How could we go after Obama for his illegal alien aunt and for supporting driver's licenses for illegal aliens when McCain fanatically pushed amnesty along with his good friend Teddy Kennedy?

How could we go after Obama for Jeremiah Wright when McCain denounced any Republicans who did so?

How could we go after Obama for planning to hike taxes on the "rich," when McCain was the only Republican to vote against both of Bush's tax cuts on the grounds that they were tax cuts for the rich?

And why should Republican activists slave away working for McCain when he has personally, viciously attacked: John O'Neill and the Swift Boat Veterans, National Right to Life director Doug Johnson, evangelical pastors Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and John Hagee, various conservative talk radio hosts, the Tennessee Republican Party and on and on and on?

As liberal Democrat E.J. Dionne Jr. exuded about McCain in The Washington Post during the Republican primaries, "John McCain is feared by Democrats and liked by independents." Dionne proclaimed that McCain "may be the one Republican who can rescue his party from the undertow of the Bush years."

Similarly, after unelectable, ultraconservative Reagan won two landslide victories, James Reston of The New York Times gave the same advice to Vice President George H.W. Bush: Stop being conservative! Bush was "a good man," Reston said in 1988, "and might run a strong campaign if liberated from Mr. Reagan's coattails."

Roll that phrase around a bit -- "liberated from Mr. Reagan's coattails." This is why it takes so long to read the Times -- you have to keep reading the same paragraph over again to see if you missed a word.

Bush, of course, rode Reagan's ultraconservative coattails to victory, then snipped those coattails by raising taxes and was soundly defeated four years later.

I keep trying to get Democrats to take my advice (stop being so crazy), but they never listen to me. Why do Republicans take the advice of their enemies?

How many times do we have to run this experiment before Republican primary voters learn that "moderate," "independent," "maverick" Republicans never win, and right-wing Republicans never lose?

Indeed, the only good thing about McCain is that he gave us a genuine conservative, Sarah Palin. He's like one of those insects that lives just long enough to reproduce so that the species can survive. That's why a lot of us are referring to Sarah as "The One" these days.

Like Sarah Connor in "The Terminator," Sarah Palin is destined to give birth to a new movement. That's why the Democrats are trying to kill her. And Arnold Schwarzenegger is involved somehow, too. Good Lord, I'm tired.

After showing nearly superhuman restraint throughout this campaign, which was lost the night McCain won the California primary, I am now liberated to announce that all I care about is hunting down and punishing every Republican who voted for McCain in the primaries. I have a list and am prepared to produce the names of every person who told me he was voting for McCain to the proper authorities.

We'll start with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. Then we shall march through the states of New Hampshire and South Carolina -- states that must never, ever be allowed to hold early Republican primaries again.

For now, we have a new president-elect. In the spirit of reaching across the aisle, we owe it to the Democrats to show their president the exact same kind of respect and loyalty that they have shown our recent Republican president.

Starting tomorrow, if not sooner.

Reader Comments:
Here are a few of the comments submitted by our readers.

I find it hard to believe that the women voters did not get behind the McCain Palin ticket. This was the best chance to have a well tuned candidate ready to be
> the first woman candidate for president in 4 years. Plus someone that may be able to stand up to some of the greed and corruption in the Democratic party.
> As it now stands we have the most socialistic single party system in the history of the US. They now will be trying to cover up all the corruption
> with more give aways of tax payers money. Unless the current trend is brought into check , America is going into a irreversible downhill slide. r

and so it begins....the fight for our freedoms

Gird your loins, conservatives
By Michelle Malkin • November 5, 2008 01:05 AM

There is no time to lick wounds, point fingers, and wallow in post-election mud.

I’m getting a lot of moan-y, sad-face “What do we do now, Michelle?” e-mails.

What do we do now? We do what we’ve always done.

We stand up for our principles, as we always have — through Democrat administrations and Republican administrations, in bear markets or bull markets, in peacetime and wartime.

We stay positive and focused.

We keep the faith.

We do not apologize for our beliefs. We do not re-brand them, re-form them, or relinquish them. We defend them.

We pay respect to the office of the presidency. We count our blessings and recommit ourselves to our constitutional republic.

We gird our loins, to borrow a phrase from our Vice President-elect.

We lock and load our ideological ammunition.

We fight.


First assignment for fiscal conservatives in Washington:

1) Oppose the Democrats’ next stimulus boondoggle.
2) Oppose Obama’s windfall profits tax proposal.
3) Oppose new bailouts for states deep in debt.
4) Oppose new foreclosure prevention measures that will simply provide perverse incentives for borrowers to walk away and delay a needed market correction.
5) No more federal loan guarantees for corporations (especially in light of this.

election eve...

John Adams

"Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people."

that is the problem about this general knowledge among the people about him, falling for what they see on the surface...symbolism over substance as rush limbaugh used to say...the media doing everything in it's power to keep ...we the people uninformed.....

God Bless America...
