Wisdom from Abroad

 
Here is someone who took a look at this election from afar. In a piece on the Gates of Vienna, titled “Cowards Lose”, he mentions all the stories about problems within Ohio and Florida. But you would never know or hear it from the mainstream media. And, at least from what I heard so far, Democrats have dropped the charges about disenfranchised voters or all thei criticism of new voter ID policies. All I have seen is a gloating over the win.

He leads off with this:

“Barack Obama Reelection Signals Rise Of New America,” crowed Howard Fineman at Huff-Po on the night of Barack Obama’s re-election to the presidency. “President Barack Obama did not just win reelection tonight. His victory signaled the irreversible triumph of a new, 21st-century America: multiracial, multi-ethnic, global in outlook and moving beyond centuries of racial, sexual, marital and religious tradition.”

True, I’d heard Fineman say pretty much that on air that night. It shouldn’t shock me but… “moving beyond ” all that? What is he drinking, did he see the same campaign I did? Obviously not, this Campaigner-in-Chief politicized every one of those continually, in a pandering fever never witnessed in America before.

Takuan Seiyo writes about the margins in Ohio and in Allen West’s district.(Florida for that matter) Isn’t it possible that those problems made a difference?

Of course, lib-progs would call them spurious claims but the left has made a mockery out of our electoral system. Anything that doesn’t fit their ideology is discarded — just like Obama does.

I was recently trying to relate it to something and could only come up with an analogy between two TV shows. (something people might understand) For Libs it was like American Idol does Washington. Or it was like Survivor to others. Evidently, American Idol won the competition.

Fast and Furious, Benghazigate, Solyndragate move over. I guess that is all irrelevant along with the means of his reelection, or even his first election.

Now we’re told Obama will speak tomorrow, “substantively”. Why should he start now? (not that he will) He’s avoided any substance for years.
