I link him frequently, but I’ve never boosted an entire post from Ace before. After you read this, though, you’ll understand: there isn’t a way to carve out just part of it.
You really, really need to read it all.
Many thanks to Ace over at AceofSpadesHQ.
It’s terrible. It’s never happened before.
A President despised by one party has won an election despite having the economy against him and a deteriorating situation in a country he invaded, and, despite growing whispers that he’s simply not up to the job, he wins narrowly in a victory fueled by highly-motivated occasional voters who marched out to support him.
The candidate beaten by this weak, lame-duck president had good qualifications on the key issue of the election. Sure, that candidate lacked charisma and warmth, and was a wealthy New Englander viewed skeptically by much of the country, but he did have a background which gave him inarguable authority to speak on the most important issue of the day.
I was looking for election coverage Tuesday night, but I kept finding movies instead. First, the sequel to ‘Titanic‘ was on, and before I turned it off it looked like they were gonna try to hit the iceberg from the other side this time. Also on was a remake of the classic ‘Pinocchio‘, but this time the little wooden boy decided to remain on Pleasure Island where he could eat, drink and smoke for free, despite the now obvious signs that it’s turning him into a donkey.
Oh, wait a sec… all of that WAS the election coverage! Silly me, I got confused between the channels.
It was an easy mistake to make. After all, America has somehow decided it doesn’t care HOW many trillions of debt we rack up: we want our free food-stamps-and-phones, darn it, and we re-elected the guy promising them, and more.
You know, like this lady:

UPDATE – 11/7/2012: Romney and Ryan would have been a wonderful antidote to the country’s ills.
My heart weeps for our nation today.

So with that in mind, we’re including just a FEW reminders for you…

It’s no secret I’m Catholic, & stridently Conservative to the core. My wife is closer to my sister, though: Conservative in nature, and Christian, but not overtly political. Being married to me has done nothing to change that.
She reminded me a couple nights back that God is in charge and that His will has been done these past four years with the election of President Obama. This doesn’t mean she’s pleased by it, but rather that she finds comfort in the knowledge that God acts in ways incomprehensible to us. These past four years have somehow served God’s purpose in a way only He understands.
That does not, however, mean she will be sitting on the sidelines come Tuesday. She will be voting with basically two thoughts in mind:
In my opinion, President Obama has turned out to be the greatest fraud perpetrated upon a populace since Toto pulled back the curtain in Oz. He is snake-oil, a wooden nickel and a rubber check, all rolled into one.
His lack of leadership, coupled with his desire to spend, spend, spend our way out of debt, make him not only unfit to lead our country, but unfit to run the convenience store near my house.
There are two articles out which buttress my point on these observations.
The initial one was from Daniel Henninger in the Wall Street Journal, in a post titled “The Un-President”.
Here’s just a bit:
So came the moment late in the Hofstra debate when moderator Candy Crowley looked at Mr. Obama and asked: “Does the buck stop with your secretary of state as far as what went on here?”
Staring back, the president clutched for a second. He looked like a fourth-grader being confronted in front of the whole class by Miss Crowley of all our childhood nightmares. That moment revealed the problem: At the core of Barack Obama’s persona and his presidency is a constant instinct to deniability.
It’s not my fault.
Still working in Chicago for a couple more days, so this will be brief. Just enough time for a couple of story links and a video which is both informative….yet very funny.
- First is a post from Cosmoscon on the upcoming election which is short, but very enlightening: “Romney Rolls On“.
