It’s now just shy of a month after the election and I have to say the results left me in stunned disbelief. I am still having a hard time processing how Barack Obama could possibly get reelected with the record of the last four years. I suppose the answer is that he was able to do it because he didn’t have to run on his record. He just had to demonize and distract with phony issues like the supposed “war on women” while the MSM provided cover for him by playing along and studiously avoiding any subject that might make him look bad. That covers a lot of subjects too.
I am also disappointed in the turnout, or lack thereof, on our side. With the stakes for or country and the economy so high how could anyone possibly justify just staying home and not voting? Romney wasn’t your first choice of candidate (he wasn’t mine either) so you just decided not to play? As they say in the military, you go to war with the army you have, not the one you wish you had.
Well, let’s just hope the damage over the next four years isn’t as bad as we fear and that the GOP manages to get its act together in time for the 2014 midterms, though I’m not holding my breath on either count.
