At 11 p.m. Eastern time on Nov. 4, 2008, a simple three-word news story moved on the Associated Press wire:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Obama wins presidency.
As much as I wanted this to happen, I refused to believe it actually could happen until the moment Barack Obama reached 270 electoral votes. I find myself wondering what else can happen, now that the impossible has become possible. For the first time in my adult life I live in a blue state. The 21st century has begun and the old rules no longer apply. Do we finally get hovercars and jet packs? Will college football adopt a playoff?
Cubs in 2009!
Now it's time for some real governance, real expertise, real solutions. And, I almost forgot.
Tadowe is a loser! Looooohooooozerrrrrrrr!!
I didn't believe it either until Obama reached 270. And even then barely did.
I say, let's get hovercars with wireless internet in them.
Well - if Obama carries through on his energy policy, the big change will be astoundingly expensive electricity. 49% of our electricity comes from coal, so you'll see one of two things:
-- really, really expensive electricity
-- a quiet walk back from the entire idea of cap and trade as a policy
The Europeans have done the latter; I expect that Obama will as well.
Mmmmm, I'm toasting to President Obama with wine made from the sour grapes harvested by James Robertson, Rex, Weepy Tad and all the rest!
I'll drink to that. It's a great day.
Eric: Cubs in 2009!
Sorry, Obama is a White Sox fan...
That is a beautiful, quality t-shirt. And, I might add, it's available in all colors at DiculousDesigns.com
"Tadowe is a loser! Looooohooooozerrrrrrrr!!"
I became a "loser" in Vietnam, where my effort to stop a public torture, conducted by Vietnamese National Police, resulted in my being blacklisted as an Army intelligence officer.
I was a registered Democrat, at the time, and fighting for our Constitution, a Democrat president (Johnson), and the protection of a SEATO/UN ally and with the blessing of the UN and most of the international community.
Of course, when Democrats lost the election in '68, they started a subversion of the war, and blaming all of it on Nixon and Eisenhower and actively encouraging riot and insurrection; if not meeting secretly, and traitorously with our enemy, and destroying the hope for a settlement with the Peace Talks being conducted in Paris (John Kerry). The Democrats held publicly televised 'investigations' where lies were told underming the public's faith in our military and government under a Republican.
I became of 'loser' ... and at the hands of fellow Democrats ...
Now, after almost 8 years of the same effort to subvert the success of a war, under a Republican administration, it is PATRIOTIC to support a Democrat war in Afghanistan and Iraq!
I never became a Republican, so a win for Obama is just another demostration of the greed for power, and a 'win' for 'team' over nation which is slavishly practiced by Democrats - when the war isn't their party's.
Today's Democrats will *never* have my respect for their traitorous 'team' effort to gain votes by defaming our military, our president, and our nation's efforts to spread democracy and liberty in the world ...
I take pride in being called a 'loser' by anti-patriotic creeps!
(I look forward to your ilk's efforts to end-the-war by its blatant absence in fact, now, you betcha!)
Weepy Tom is back!
And once again he's blamin' the Democrats for the failings of Republicans. (Republican Nixon knew Vietnam was unwinnable in 1968 - see The Pentagon Papers - but hid that information in order to win re-election. Sending 20,000 soldiers to their deaths in order to win an election - how patriotic.)
Yours is a hilariously desperate post, Weepy Tom. But everyone knows it's crap. You were never in the Army, much less an "intelligence officer." And you've never set foot in Vietnam much less fought in the war.
The lying-about-your-biography ploy was already tried by "international affairs consultant" Rex. Didn't work too well for him either.
Another one of the "Anonymous" says, "(Republican Nixon knew Vietnam was unwinnable in 1968 - see The Pentagon Papers - but hid that information in order to win re-election. Sending 20,000 soldiers to their deaths in order to win an election - how patriotic.)"
Why try and fool an old fooler? The Pentagon Papers were commissioned in 1967, not by Nixon. You leftwing dufusii can never get your "stuff" str8!
"You were never in the Army, much less an "intelligence officer." And you've never set foot in Vietnam much less fought in the war."
Smiley. Thanks for your effort to revile me, like all the leftwing ilk do, while out of the other side of their two faces' they call the rightwing "hatemongers".
My "coup" sheet is maintained by Rogers' personal attention. I'm way ahead of you dimwits, and Rogers is shamed by your Goebbels-like efforts to make me some sort of rightwing-Juden to attack like the storm-trooper you make of yourself, al politico ...
Weepy Tom... lousy with the facts as usual. The Pentagon Papers were commissioned in 1967... Was the report published in 1967? Nope.
"United States"Vietnam Relations, 1945"1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense" was completed at the end of 1968, just as LBJ was heading off to the ranch and a new President was taking over. A Republican.
Republican President Richard Nixon stepped into the Oval Office with that report in his hand, knowing that the Vietnam War was unwinnable. Did he bring our boys home immediately? Nope. He sent another 20,000 soldiers off to die. That's the God you're pretending to pray to.
No one here "reviles you" as much as you desperately wish we would. We don't care, kiddo. I'm just pointing out what we all know - you're no soldier; you're a 13-year-old boy with a Macbook.
Just because I say so, doesn't mean that leftists are calling me names, right?
"... lousy with the facts as usual."
Just because I say so, doesn't mean that intellectually bereft leftists call me names in order to avoid those "lousy" facts, right?
"The Pentagon Papers were commissioned in 1967... Was the report published in 1967? Nope."
It was a Democrat administration's study to determine if a "Limited" war in SEA could stop communist fascism from taking over in South Vietnam. It wasn't revealed to the public, since it concluded that the Democrat administration's policy was flawed (at best), and its revelation would have been stupidly treasonous because it was Top Secret (Codeword).
So, the Democrats waited until Nixon was president, and Republicans could be blamed for the "conclusions" on a "Limited War", and priests were picked to be the "Plumbers", so that they might not face the Death Penalty for their TREASON!
Meddlesome facts, right?
"Republican President Richard Nixon stepped into the Oval Office with that report in his hand, knowing that the Vietnam War was unwinnable. Did he bring our boys home immediately? Nope. He sent another 20,000 soldiers off to die. That's the God you're pretending to pray to."
You really are callow, huh? Nixon *changed* the strategy, and increased the war by interdicting the North. It brought the fascist communists to the Peace Table, but where further treason by John Kerry undermined those talks; along with "investigations" into claims that US soldiers were brutal war criminals, and that the administration encouraged such barbarity.
All of which "testimony" by the known traitor, Kerry, was discovered to be total lies!
Another bothersome "Fact", right?
Why not address those facts, instead of so reflexively making me your subject? Are these your own "facts"? ...
"No one here "reviles you" as much as you desperately wish we would. We don't care, kiddo. I'm just pointing out what we all know - you're no soldier; you're a 13-year-old boy with a Macbook."
NOTe how Tadowe does not take issue with the revelation that he is not a veteran. No more wasting time on this guy for sure.
A visitor dictates a memorandum: "NOTe[sic] how Tadowe does not take issue with the revelation that he is not a veteran. No more wasting time on this guy for sure."
Here is another leftist, attempting to "wave-hands", desperately, in order to distract from the facts: The "Pentagon Papers" were prepared to show that a "Limited" war in SEA was a negligent policy, and which had been negligently conducted for over 4 years, prior to the "study" which was prepared to reveal during the new Republican administration - and was so revealed, traitorously, and while the USA was at war (all of the USA and not just Republicans!).
I don't mind having what I say about myself insulted and disparaged, blinkered leftist tool!
Not addressing the "FACTS" (already admitted to) is literally applause to me. Thanks for the opportunity to demostrate that leftwing idiocy, over-and-over to the RSS community.
Agreed, fair Visitor. We're done with little Weepy Tom.
Cubs in '09?! LOL Maybe next year...
