Maybe KAG is right, moving to China.
I case you are not kidding (who knows on PPRuNe I have seen everything) bad move, I can read you are 67? Retirement in China
Me I work there, but for retirement I intend to move back... And I won't wait 60 to retire...

Marrying you brother? This election made you that deseperate???

Anyway I can understand, losing an election cannot be something to be happy about. Well, you'll have to trust Barack Obama, and just so you know, he was already the US president before and you haven't married your brother yet, you see there is always hope...

I see some Senate seats were up for grabs also. I assume Senator James Inhofe is still in place...it's the money Lebowski..



If so, it is a crime against humanity.

How long can the president blame Bush? How are he and the press going to handle the economy he handed himself?

All the issues put off until after the election, Iran's nukes, fiscal cliff, entitlement bankruptcy, fiscal deficits, economic stagnation - Mr. Obama is going to somehow have to deal with them between his rounds of golf and hoops. Will the press continue to cover for him for another four years? Is anyone out there thinking about this?

Today, I have this fundamental urge to buy more gold. Call me crazy.

That is crazy BenThere. You should be thinking in terms of buying more rounds than gold. (And I'm not talking about rounds in a bar.)

I've got my rounds, compadre. I'm ready for the revolution, should it come to that. And my house is my castle.

The Press is too clumsy to juggle three things. One thing juggled makes them look childish, so....


Benghazi? Debt ceiling? (not the debt, the 'ceiling': yes, America is that stupid).

Hillary may take some serious flame. The Press will find something to present as a foil to the defense of their hero.....

And BUSH is in there.... Yes, America is that stupid..

I doubt it. I foresee her exit stage left. Sooner rather than later.

So Obama won. And I was told, repeatedly, that I was a racist if I didn't support him.

Mia Love, a black Republican, lost her House bid in Utah to a white Democrat.


Is it just me?

Rg

She has already left, effective Jan 1. She is "tired"..... The replacement? Raddatz predicts: John Kerry, or SUSAN RICE.

Honest.

Benghazi was avoided by the two who got the briefings, both Romney and Obama gave it a pass. Only Schieffer made mention of it, and he was ignored.

Standby, Ranger....

What makes Obama so dangerous, and so appealing to the numpties is a characteristic they share....

MAGICAL THINKING.......Arab Spring? It has sprung, and more shall be revealed.

Obama is so out of touch, and I am not sure if that is good, or bad...... I have to trust there are reasonable, intelligent, and realistic people in his vicinity who are not strangers to logic, and a devotion to our Nation.....

One thing I noticed at sparrowfart o'clock this morning, before I went to work, was that Congress and the Senate have actually changed.

Not in the way they are "controlled", Congress is still GOP and the Senate is still Democrat, but one thing I saw said that there are fewer "moderates" in both houses.


That makes it worse for any President in the situation Obama now finds himself, as it means that Congress is likely to be even less cooperative regarding any Democrat bills going through, and the Senate is more likely to reject anything that Congress agrees to.

This is gonna be one hell of a tightrope He will have to walk, and adds a whole new meaning to the "lame duck" comment earlier in the thread.

If you want limited government, restraint on taxes, personal accountability, functioning city government, positive role models, fiscally sound government, and pro-economy policy, vote right.
What, you mean like that overseen by the last Republican president?

Romney's hands would have been just as tightly bound as Obama's. There is very little wriggle room, contrary to what you were told.

Astute observation, Lyman.

I think the possibility of revolution/civil war or breakup of the Union is a distinct possibility. Not now, or maybe in my lifetime, but one day...

The path we are on is not working and is ultimately doomed. Pain to follow...

What about in reality? GWB a role model - for what exactly?

I believe countries get the leaders they deserve, selected by the national psyche. We had our celebrity leader a few years back, you have yours now. Get used to hearing the word 'legacy' over the next four years...

I cannot tell if the divide is a result of Obama's self centered 'wedge' work, or he is a product of the division.

It won't matter. In the Civil War, it was 'slavery', this time it will be haves v 'have nots' (as if).

I personally believe Barack Obama bears enormous responsibility for what follows. His purposeful efforts to pit the 99 against the 1 have poisoned our discourse, savaged our self confidence, and polluted the well of community we once had. (Romney's "47 percent" was not helpful... Although his was a political remark, not a cultural one). It is hilarious how Obama positioned himself as the "outsider", the revolutionary, the people's hero, whilst refusing to accept any responsibility for the previous four years of bumbling and ignorant bluster.

The Press will paint him as saviour, when in fact, he is the perpetraitor in Chief.

sayin...

What I want to see is the media becoming more critical of Obama
instead of just swooning over everything he does.

I also can't wait to see if the Benghazi saga plays out in the media
or if it is swept under the carpet by them and buried for 4 years until
Obama leaves office.
