Apparently Biden isn’t enjoying being part of the most hateful, divisive presidential administration in U.S. history– and being compelled to call Romney and Ryan liars who “don’t have much character at all.”
Update: Oh, now it all makes sense: Biden isn’t proud to be Obama’s Vice-President, because Biden believes he’s actually the President.
“I’m proud to be President of the United States.” — VP Joe Biden
While Obama continues along the campaign trail praising himself for the auto bailout, “Coming hot on the heels of speculation that some Jeep production may be moved to China comes a bombshell from a Bloomberg report. Fiat is now considering moving Chrysler and Jeep production to Italy.”
Update: The hilariously named “politifact.com” announced that its “Lie of the Year” was Mitt Romney’s campaign statement that Jeep was moving its U.S. production to China. Well, now it’s been confirmed: “Fiat… and its U.S. unit Chrysler expect to roll out at least 100,000 Jeeps in China when production starts in 2014.”
Remember this picture?
This picture of a Hurricane Sandy victim went viral and helped Obama win re-election. Now, the pictured victim, Donna Vanzant, feels even more victimized: “After his visit, I sent an email to President Obama. Many days later, I got a response back. It was disturbing. It had nothing to do with what I was asking him. It was a form letter. It thanked me for supporting the troops. He made a promise to rebuild on national television, and I can’t even get this money. It’s heartbreaking, really. I did reach out to Senator Whelan, and I got a response that they were forwarding my email to the person that Governor Christie put in charge of Sandy relief. But from President Obama, I got a form letter. When you get a hug from the President of the United States, you feel like there’s something there. A promise was made. I have two grown kids. One is a U.S. Navy diver. The other one lives at the marina with his wife and new baby, and they lost everything. But I raised my kids to know that your word is your word. You promise something, you keep it, and that was a broken promise. I’ve never been a person to expect free handouts, but the President gave me hope. But now, I just don’t know.”
Re-election has not served Obama’s international reputation well. He’s begun his second term by referring to Burma as “Myanmar” (the name given to the country by its oppressive military government), contradicting long-standing U.S. policy. And, to add insult to injury: Obama incorrectly pronounced the name of Aung San Suu Kyi (the Nobel laureate and former political prisoner who has led the struggle for a free and democratic Burma) This just goes to show how little the concept of “liberty” means to Obama.
“Myanmar” isn’t the only brutal Asian dictatorship that Obama pandered to this week: Obama also became the first U.S. President to take a trip to Cambodia to meet its dictator Hun Sen— and this is not a “first” to be proud of.
Update: The First Lady of Cambodia insulted Obama by giving him a “sampeah” greeting in a manner normally used toward servants. Clueless Obama smiled and bowed in response.
November 6, 2012: Obama is re-elected.
November 14, 2012: More than 200 Palestinian rockets explode on Israeli territory, and “Israel moved closer to an all-out ground war with Hamas Thursday, as Israeli planes, tanks and gunboats pounded suspected militant positions in Gaza in retaliation for another day of Hamas rocket attacks that left at least three Israelis dead.”
Conclusion: Obama’s re-election has emboldened radical Islamic elements in the Middle East. And terrorists are continuing to propagandize Israel’s efforts to protect itself.
It’s not very surprising that “Veruca Salt” would be whining about the effects of Obamacare after viciously attacking conservatives for opposing it. Maybe it would have been better for the Democrats to lose the 2012 election, so that they could pin the consequences of their failed policies on the Republicans (again)… but now, the Democrats have to deal with realities like Denny’s restaurants in Florida cutting employees’ work hours and adding a 5% Obamacare surcharge to customers’ bills. Will the Democrats try to boycott the entire U.S. economy?
In the wake of the Nov. 6 election, petitions seeking to secede from the union have been filed on behalf of 23 states on the White House website, https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitions. Most of the petitions contain the same wording and ask to withdraw “peacefully” from the United States in order to form independent governments.
Conclusion #1: Obama doesn’t have a mandate, and we aren’t living in a “New America.”
First, CIA Director David Petraeus resigned two days after Obama’s re-election over an “extramarital affair” with his biographer. Conveniently for Obama, Petraeus had been scheduled to testify in front of Congress next week about the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya– and now that Petraeus has resigned, he won’t be testifying. Now, it turns out that Petraeus had personally investigated the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, and we won’t hear vital information that could have blown the lid off of the Obama Administration’s obvious cover-up of this national security failure. It’s also been revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is going to resign, so it’s doubtful we’ll hear anything about Benghazi from her either. All we have to go on are the words of the father of Petraeus’s “mistress,” who implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.
Update: The scandal gets worse for Obama– because Petraeus actually gave honest testimony to Congress on November 16th. He admitted that he “knew almost immediately after the September 11th attack, that the group Ansar al Sharia, the al Qaeda sympathizing group in Libya was responsible for the attacks” despite his prior Congressional testimony that the attack at the U.S. Consulate in Libya began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim youtube clip. Petraeus has now testified that the CIA’s talking points to the media and the American people were edited to downplay the terrorist connection. While intelligence officials say they don’t know who changed the CIA’s talking points, what’s clear is that Obama benefited from Petraeus’ false testimony in September 2012. During the 2012 presidential election, Obama continuously asserted that Al Qaeda was ‘on the run’ while his supporters chanted “bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.’ Because of Petraeus’ false testimony, Obama could claim that his reaction to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was justified based on the intelligence available at the time. Furthermore, Obama was able to deny the occurrence of another Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil for 2 weeks before Election Day. A mere two days after Obama got re-elected, Petraeus’ extra-marital affair was exposed and Petraeus was thrown under the bus by the Obama Administration.
This is apparently a map of election returns for each county in America, and yet we got an Obama re-election…Yes, the blue areas are high population centers, but there is still something really weird going on. At the very least– even without the fraud that indisputably occurred in this election– we know that Obama doesn’t have a mandate, and we aren’t living in a “new America.”
Democrats can’t claim to have a mandate– even with the presence of Democrats’ voter intimidation and voter fraud in this election, the results show that Republican values are spread more widely across America than Democrats’. More counties’ majority returns were Republican, and massive population centers in blue states don’t define the country as a whole. Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other big cities offer “safe harbor” for illegal immigrants and don’t require voter IDs during elections. Moreover, big cities are historically more liberal and America’s character isn’t defined by these few locales.
