Good article; well worth the read.

Gobsmacked

Well, It's official; I don't know anything.

I thought for sure that given such a clear choice, Americans would vote for love of country over revenge.

I was wrong.

I thought, that just as every presidential election in my lifetime, the bad economy would be hung around the incumbent's neck, sinking him.

I was wrong.

I thought that even those few Americans who were fortunate enough to still be fully employed (not counting those leeching off the public system) would be cognizant of how much pain their neighbors were in and elect someone who would at least try to make improvements.

I was wrong.

I thought that now that FINALLY some of the disturbing truths about our first black president had come to light, voters would reject a man so dangerously at odds with the American experience.

I was wrong.

I thought the 2010 elections and the Tea Party meant something.

I feel bad for you guys since it must be scary to imagine that Obama is some infinitely powerful tyrant who is one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse or whatever scary thing you imagine he is rather than the reality of him being a slightly liberal president who hasn't done much of anything radical. The shear level of hyperbole is amazing; if Obama intends to let tax cuts expire adding a few percentage points more to some people then he's literally tearing asunder the very fabric of Freedom and is attacking America and is a socialist communist aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! No sense of perspective or scale, it's only ALL BAD AND EVIL. It would be comical if it weren't so widespread.

And we feel the same way about those who are truly blind to the damage the policies of this administration can cause.It's not just one thing that concerns us, it's the whole mindset . And it's pointless to argue it, like I said, your team won, lets hope you are correct, and we are wrong. We just love our country as it was founded, we love the Constitution, we love freedom and liberty. And we don't like these things being threatened. And I'm sorry, but whether your side sees it or not, Obama and his plans to change things, are a threat to our way of living. The ones who see this first are the ones who came here from communistic countries. They've seen this before. They can't believe our people are falling for this. Talk to some people that came here to escape communism, get their views on this administration . Where's all that openmindedness and tolerance your side is supposed to have. I sure haven't seen any of it, all I see is mean spirited insults. And why, ? he won didn't he ? And your side still just won't stop with the insults and the extreme defensiveness ?! What is it you are afraid of ? If our side had won, I wouldn't keep acting like it was still up for grabs, I mean like it or not, it's over and we lost, so what's the problem with your side?

He's not.

Instead, he is a flawed man who has an elevated sense of self-importance.

That you so readily dismiss Obamacare, $16 trillion debt, support of the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama's disdain for any compromise or cooperation is telling. That you can readily dismiss the constant lies emanating from the White House is stunning.

It's not hyperbole when it's true.

Deficit reduction isn't part of Obama's agenda.

Hope the added perspective here helps your understanding, Doll.

Farcical is an apt descriptor for the Obama regime.

So his article doing the whining about how the typical conservative rhetoric failed is a good article but Rachel Maddow telling you guys to get out of your bubble is oh so terrible?
