    Why They Won The Election

    This is really a must read, folks.

    http://www.theblaze.com/contribution...s-us-and-them/

    Democrats have become masters of manipulation, perfecting the divisive art of segregating Americans into polarized minority blocs, then coalescing them into a new majority that has the power to effect change through the ballot box. And while Obama stood before his loyal minions to deliver a victory speech based on the unity of these United States, the irony is that he conquered specifically through division.

    He won by dividing the country according to race, gender, sexual orientation and above all, income bracket.
    He won by spending nearly six years fomenting hatred — literal hatred — among countrymen for their wealthier counterparts.
    While many associate the Obama campaign with slogans like “hope” and “change,” his most effective mantra of all hinged on the concept of “fair share.” Tax the wealthy and demand they give more. More than what? Is giving away over half of your hard-earned income to inept bureaucrats who will only put a match to it, still not enough?
    The weight of the nation is carried on the backs of those who produce and contribute, and those of us fortunate enough to be gainfully employed in this dismal economic climate still have our paychecks signed each and every month by such evildoers.

    Is it “fair” to bite the hand that feeds you? Obama taught Americans that it is.

    The “wealthy,” who by Barack Obama’s standards are individuals, including small business owners earning $250,000 a year or more, already contribute the most in taxes. It is conveniently never mentioned that 50 percent of the population pay no income tax at all and that the top five percent of society bears well over half of the overall tax burden.
    The re-election of Barack Obama beatified the welfare state and solidified the collective belief that the world owes each and every person, irrespective of their worthiness, a living. His re-election elevated hand-outs over self-reliance, pity over dignity, mediocrity over meritocracy.
    Jealousy and resentment are the easiest weaknesses to exploit and prey upon, and in that, the Obama campaign found its winning strategy. It is the bedrock of Socialism. It’s called class warfare. And apparently, it works.

    I thought it was because the conservatives are still the same high-treason Bush neocons who think their winning election platform is Personhood as thier new identity.

    Yesterday i think i posted a topic here about some woman writing something making Obama the Apostle Obama and his speeches the gospel of Barrack Obama...Here's more. You want to see why he won? We have a foolish, ignorant and now beyond a doubt godless, evil media.
    http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-dr...bama-jefferson

    comparing this little snake to thomas jefferson. I have my problems with jefferson myself, but Obama is no jefferson and he is NOT that intelligent in spite of what the media keeps hammering on.

    Little Boys do not really learn , once they have been allowed to stray , until they have been thoroughly thrashed ( Sure , not very PC )
    These clowns seem to think they lost because the moon was too bright or the sun too weak .
    Here is a very challenged place for very challenged people .
    They really believe that Fraud and God intervened . A very sad bunch of dim wits

    Obama and the Regime ran a negative campaign. They didn't discuss their failed first term and they didn't discuss what they would do in their next term.

    They created a fake vision of Mitt and ran with it. A complicit MSM brought them victory. Now it is the time to give the Statists what they voted for. Hard and fast. No quarter.

    The OP covers half of why they won. The other half lies with the all quarter moderate:

    ...Governor Romney is a good person, a great business leader.

    But, alas, he is also a moderate Republican.

    As were Herbert Hoover, Alf Landon, Wendell Willkie, Thomas E. Dewey, Gerald R. Ford, George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole and John McCain. Making Mitt Romney a historical asterisk as the tenth moderate GOP nominee (Dewey was nominated twice) to lose the White House.

    The exceptions to the rule are Dwight Eisenhower, who won not because he was a moderate but because he was the general-hero of World War II. Richard Nixon campaigned as the moderate he was in 1960 and lost. By 1968 he had won the nomination of a party that had shifted back to its conservative roots and he campaigned accordingly -- as he did in 1972. He won narrowly the second time, by a landslide the third. George H.W. Bush ran as the heir to Reagan in 1988 and won. Governing as a moderate he lost -- and lost badly in his 1992 re-election effort. George W. Bush ran as a "compassionate conservative" -- which is to say a moderate -- in 2000 and 2004 and squeaked by the first time thanks to the Supreme Court, winning the second time by a bare 100,000 votes in Ohio.
    @ When Conservatism Is a Second Language.

    He adds:
    And the news ekes out that Moderate Nominee Number 10 Romney received some 3 million Republican votes less than Moderate Nominee Number 9 -- John McCain in 2008.

    Which is to say, 3 million base GOP voters simply refused to vote for Romney....
