Mourning


I Googled, "Really, really depressed after an election," and this article came up. Not saying it made me feel any better because his final conclusion doesn't count Hillary into the equation...but it was good to see others felt as betrayed and downtrodden as I did/do...

The Mourning After the Election.

And a liberal writer at Slate (sorry, that was wildly redundant) wrote this about liberals reveling in their win and our pain...

I'm curious what makes the writer of the first piece basically consider Obama the Anti-Christ...the fact he saved all those auto jobs in the Midwest? The fact tens of millions more people now have access to healthcare? The fact he killed OBL? The fact he ended a policy that drove patriotic gay people out of the military?

I suggest this person take a hard look at the fact the president has done almost nothing to make their life worse and many things to make the lives of other people better. As I understand it, empathy is one of the cornerstones of Christ's teachings.

People that actually think that "lying won over truthfulness" are mentally ill. Obama won and that means TRUTH won over LIES. You can't be a true Christian and believe that Romney wanted to be president to help Americans, it was nothing but an ego trip for him and he thought he could buy it, and he couldn't...for once in his life.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for you? After years of hate and disrespect from the Right and the knowledge that had Romney won, the Right would be just as brutal.

I would love to see us kiss and make up but then I notice your little ee card. Not really giving me a warm and fuzzy feeling and making me reach for my sympathy button.

Your guy lost. Our guy won. Suck it up and act like the man you pretend that you are.

MRMMacrum -- "Ala" is actually an incredibly gorgeous lady, not a man.

And fine, your guy won. Would you want us to gloat and rub it in your faces were our roles reversed? I think not.

One last thing to "anonymous".... Romney wasn't my choice (geez, I feel like I've said that 50 times this week), but I do think he's a decent man. I want to believe Obama is too, because God knows I could use a little "hope" about it. I just disagree with him on pretty much everything. Respect my opinion, and maybe I'll respect yours. I'm tired of arguing.

Jinxie said...

PS. Ala, thanks for posting the "mourning" article.

Obama is a "decent guy" and he has been vilified by the right because he is black. He has done nothing but fight for the average American. Your radical party needs
to change or face extinction.

I just read the list again...they left off no more wars winning out over endless trillion dollar made-up wars.

God has truly blessed America with a second Obama term.

"Obama is a "decent guy" and he has been vilified by the right because he is black."

Every far righty on this site would vote for Allen West as CIC...so stop the bullshit.

Hoss said...

What's the big deal? Obama getting re-elected was a vote, an affirmation, for failure over success. That's the new America. When you have the left-voting side of this country absolutely vilifying a decent man because he has been wildly successful in his life, that's all you need to know. Why work hard, that's for suckers. Obama has bought so many votes I can't believe the election was as close as it was.

This country needed adult leadership and someone to make the hard choices, but it got what it wanted with more Big Government and pushing the problem down the road. I just don't want to hear any bullshit about buyers remorse, because believe me, it will come.

Obama is a failure at everything but winning elections. He has saved auto jobs at the expense of every person in the country. Do you know how much we have to pay for those jobs? Jobs making things that no one wants? He's a slave to the unions, he has no plan to balance the budget, and the debt is rising all the time. So enjoy the victory. You really don't have anything else.

Hoss said...

Z, economy is shit, gas prices have more than doubled, the deficit the left was soooo concerned about has grown at at exponential rate under Obama, food and home energy prices have increased significantly - and everyone expects that to just be a drop in the bucket, and the last day Bush was in office was the lowest unemployment has been in four years, massive layoffs around the corner as employers prepare for Obamacare to hit, and all of Obama's other bullshit...but let's get us some more of that.

Talk about hollow victories.

Rickvid in Seattle said...

Stupidity reigns with some on here. Yes, you've seen through us guys, if Obama was white, we'd just looovvvveee him, right? No, of course not. Anonymous and all the leftist statist "gimme free shit and make someone else pay for it NOW!" idiots are solid proof that turning out morons in our schools by dumbing them down to single digit IQs has worked. Obama is not causing this, he and his wrecking crew are harvesting the abundance of decades of drilling from the Zinns of the world. Twits. But hey love it.

Rickvid in Seattle said...

And Jim, you pass on the lies about the auto industry. If you know shit from shinola about economics, you know that. Going bankrupt does NOT mean disappearing like vapor. Had GM gone bankrupt, they'd have reorganized and might be producing products people actually want and be on the road to prosperity and profits – you know, the thing lots of Democrats at the convention said should be banned! Instead, they turn out cars that have to be heavily subsidized, sold to government agencies ordered to buy them at exorbitant prices. The layoffs are already starting because you and your type actually seem to think the “free” healthcare is, well, free. Companies are looking at failure, or avoiding the steamroller of shit that is Obamacare. Well, the end goal is total control and dependence on the government. Cradle to grave, you are a slave. Own it, dipshit.

To jim marquis, Anonymous, MRMacrum and the rest of the clueless among us:
For your information I have never been a religious person.
First of all, the Messiah has done a WHOLE LOT to make my life worse because of the asinine economic policies (which include Obama Care and environmental regulations) he and His Disciples pursue. If you weren’t so clueless you would realize he has made yours worse too, unless, of course, your existence is entirely unaffected by economic conditions generally. I don’t think that anyone wants to argue the entire science of economics here, I certainly don’t. However, I do urge you to shed at least some of your ignorance. An excellent first step would be to read Milton Friedman’s “Freedom of Choice”. Friedman explains a lot of things in a very readable manner, with no jargon or tedious charts.
Comrade Obama is in the process of making my life even worse by his national security policies, both diplomatic and military. He is repeating the blunders of the western democracies during the 1920s and 30s. Those blunders cost countless treasure and tens of millions of lives. If you don’t think that those blunders make all our lives worse, you need to ask the management at the cuckoo’s nest if they will let you stay.

Being on the losing side doesn't mean you were on the wrong side.

How many are there commenting as "anonymous" here?

Seriously to all you Libs: EAT A FUCKING DICK.

Fuck you all.

You will always be pussy pieces of shit not worth the sacrifices many good men and women have made for you.

I hope you idiots get hit by a bus.

There will never be any reconciliation with you scum of the earth. Never.
