“Grounded floored the fluffy

Liberty Culture

It will be interesting to see how the dust settles after all the political handshakes, kisses, and venomous rhetoric simmers down after Tuesday, November 6, 2012.  This has been one contentious campaign in U.S. politics but much is at stake.

Conservatives fear the continuation of another four years of a bad economy and high unemployment.  Liberals fear a reversion of ObamaCare and a rollback of Obama’s influence on the pro-gay agenda.

The big thing in this election is the economy.  Funny the Obama campaign did not deal with the economy very well in their campaign ads.   Check out the Obama and Romney campaign ads (links to their  YouTube channels are below).  Obama seems to be pure “feel good” ads but wasn’t it always this way?  Now that the President is the incumbent, he is in the position to give the people a record of his achievements.  Does he do this? …

    1. Oh My God…… You finally read by bio…. Says a lot about the sort of person you are and how much you underestimate the importance of America to the Entire World!
      And you actually said ‘Sadly’ too.

      If you’re blind to that fact, then you are a lot more gullible than I imagined. This few weeks had really taken its toll on you.

      Before I forget, I hope you are safe & Sandy didn’t wet you feet. That was a sad, sad event.

  1. Sorry, Yasniger, but I believe it’s offensive for the citizens of one country to interfere in the election of another country, particularly when they are so willing to peddle lies and propaganda. Even if your views were the same as mine, I’d be offended. As for your bio … if you’re referring to your About tab on this blog, it says nothing about where you live.

    1. And so it remains…..
      What? “It’s offensive for the citizens of one country to interfere in the election of another country?”

      No need to apologize, but don’t you think that is quite contradictory coming from an ‘American?

      And You perception of “Lies” is limited to what you disagree with, not what you consider to be the views of others.

      One more day of this & a good fight would have been well fought. The republicans winning it this time might be ‘a bridge too far.’ But my God. look at how far this campaign had come!
      .

  2. Do you believe it appropriate to hold me accountable for all of America’s meddling in other countries’ affairs? Do you believe it appropriate to assume that I condone that meddling? If either of those questions are answered with a “yes” from you, I guess I get to hold you responsible for all of the Nigerian email scams, as well as for all of the atrocities committed on the Nigerian people by the Nigerian government since you are Nigerian.
    As for how far this campaign has come, the reality is that the Republicans had Obama beat if they had only nominated somebody who was moderate. They failed to do that, instead nominating a candidate who is such a panderer and such an example of so much that is wrong with our system, they shoot themselves in the proverbial foot.

    1. I have been arguing with you for weeks now & you had to wait until the last day of my lingering on this issue to make your most outstanding remark…

      It will never be ‘appropriate to hold every American accountable for all of America’s meddling in other countries’ affairs’…still America’s meddling has in most cases (than has been highlighted) been in the best interest of the ‘Free World’. That is how IMPORTANT America is. And its politics by every estimate.

      I don’t assume you condone that meddling… I expect you to accept it as America’s duty to do so. That is one definite difference in our stance. That is a good thing most times, not a bad thing. Vietnam might have been hard but the intent was laudable, Iraq too!

      So it is not even comparable to the fraudulent acts of a few in the Nigerian email scams. And I can’t see the relevance either when it comes to ‘atrocities committed on the Nigerian people by the Nigerian government’…since we’re discussing foreigners Meddling in domestic politics.

      Now here is where you blew my mind;
      “As for how far this campaign has come, the reality is that the Republicans (had?) Obama beat if they (had?) only nominated somebody who was moderate. They failed to do that, instead nominating a candidate who is such a panderer and such an example of so much that is wrong with our system, they shoot themselves in the proverbial foot.”

      Phew… I had to quote you in full there because I think you finally get it. (I believe)

      Why do you think this election is going to be so close? Obama wants to take America in a direction the Conservative Americans don’t want. This campaign has come this far BECAUSE the Republicans nominated somebody who isn’t moderate. They delibrately picked a traditionalist. They didn’t fail, they instead nominated a candidate who represents what made America great in the past..going back to the years after WWII. And more recently Reagan & the first Bush administration, before Clinton came in & benefited from that dominance. Democrat POTUS always have this ‘popularist’ approach & it doesn’t rub off well on the US… Carter vaguely comes to mind.

      That was what was RIGHT (not wrong) with the US system… And you think they shot themselves in the foot?

      Obama won the last election without breaking a sweat. Doesn’t look like he will win this one without ‘a sprint to the finish line’ (Proverbially)

      Its about a system… Change it swiftly or leave it as it is & alter it gradually.

  3. I pretty confident I disagree with virtually everything you state in your last comment. If you think that Romney and the current crop of Republicans represent a return to the post-WWII America, you really need to study up on your American history. I’ll leave it at that, because to argue the rest is pointless.

    1. Ha ha ha ha I would have been surprised if you agreed with me.

      Well! I guess congratulations is in order. As expected… Obama was returned. Good luck to him; most sincerely.

      In The New Yorker, John Cassidy made this powerful remark on Obama’s reëlection: “Though the day-to-day exchanges were often trivial, the underlying dynamics of the election were deadly serious, and everybody knew what they were. As both candidates repeatedly said, it was about what sort of country we want to be. Now, the American public has rendered a judgement.”

      I honestly think Obama will come out of this election a better leader for the US & most likely he will try to slow down & let the Conservatives catch up with his laudable but miss-aligned changes & direction… Carry them along at a pace that won’t attract hostility. A good half of the electorate share this conservative views & that is too huge a fraction to allow to feel ‘alienated’.

      Starting point should be Mitt Romney’s Congratulation speech. America needs all hands on deck now.

      It isn’t conventional, (Obama isn’t your conventional president anyway) but if Obama could reach across the dived (as the charming princely Victor) & bring in Mitt as an honourable stakeholder (Not a vanquished rich Orge) at whatever level. Make an attractive picture for Americans to see unity & a sense of oneness… Not just saying it.. The result will be huge.

      The world NEEDS the old America back badly, because what is on offer as an alternative is scary (China)… I cringe from the mere thought of it.

      Enjoy the victory, it was truly earned.
