Still getting over the shock, but here's my takeway from last night's election results:
1) Huge win for white, social liberals. Their mascot, Barack Obama, gets another 4 four years to further their anti-God, immoral, abortion by any means, "civil rights" for people who choose to have sex with people of the same sex, "civil rights" for illegal immigrants, pro-union at any cost, pro-"climate change", pro-victimhood agenda.
2) When Obama won Nevada, a state suffering some of the worst unemployment and housing foreclosure rates in the nation, you just knew it was not going to be Mitt Romney's night.
3) Yes, Hurricane Sandy did have an effect on the election. To think, the week before the hurricane hit Romney was leading in most polls. Then Sandy came, killed many, destroyed homes, etc., and a nation came together, saw the clips on TV (including POTUS supposedly "leading the charge" to recovery) and a certain, severely obese governor of New Jersey (and supposed Romney advocate) empirically embracing Obama like he was the second coming of God--yeah, optics can be very influential.
4) Dick Morris and Karl Rove should never, ever, ever be allowed to predict anything when it comes to politics.
5) It's hard enough to beat an incumbent, but Romney did himself no favors by playing it safe in that 3rd debate. He had plenty of opportunity to look presidential and go after Obama on Libya. predator drones killing American citizens, Gitmo still being open, etc. But he didn't and that's incredulous when you consider how much momentum he gained after clearly winning the first debate.
6) I don't know the stats, but libertarians probably cost Romney some key votes. I know Ron Paul never endorsed him and Paul is the leader of that lot so I imagine that a lot of them stayed home.
7) The black liberal vote made a difference in North Carolina, but not Pennsylvania, the latter of which Romney needed badly. At least some blacks in North Carolina are capable of thinking for themselves.
8) Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown. Allen West might be out. Some gay, white chick won a Senate seat. "Same-sex" marriage won in Maine. Yeah, those are huge victories for the white, morally bankrupt, "progressive" lot and they're loving it.
9) The Christian-Right needs to get their shit together...and soon. Clearly, Barry's team ran a better ground game and considering all that they were up against (high unemployment, the after-effects of ObamaCare, etc.) for them to still win is frankly speaking...amazing.
10) More gridlock. With the GOP gaining more seats in the Senate, anyone expecting real "change" in DC anytime soon is in either serious denial or just stupid. But that could actually be good for conservatives come 2014 and even 2016 when God forbid, Joe Biden runs.
