This Is It, People

And we’ll let our good friend Bill Whittle explain it (h/t Bill Quick):

Our personal motives are closely aligned with Bill’s, with the addition of us hating and despising the BlightBringer, the Butcher of Benghazi so much that if Lucifer himself ran against him, we’d vote for Lucifer just to get the trash thrown out.

It doesn’t end there, the next four years will be a long, hard fight to keep Mittens’ feet to the fire along with the rest of the GOP’s, but if we don’t make that first step, then nothing we do over the next four years will make diddly squat of a difference.

Thatisall.

    As I said there – the problem is that I believe we passed the threshold where our votes don’t matter back in 2008. I could vote for Romney, or I could vote for Zarkon the Space God and it would have the same effect – none. The vote riggers in the Democrat party have long since voted for me.

    That being said, I’m dropping my ballot off today. There are a lot of local initiatives that I plan to vote for and if I just leave the President slot empty, it makes frauding my ballot even easier for them; So I’m forced to participate in the farce. And even in farce, there’s no way I’d vote for the person in the office now, nor one of the silly crew making up the third parties.

    And I have to disagree there, although I may be proven wrong.

    I don’t see 2008 as “abnormal” or “rigged” at all. It was a perfect storm in favor of the leftists and, in retrospect, it couldn’t have turned out any other way. I just couldn’t see it at the time, blinded as I was by assuming that most Americans saw the same that all of us here did: A naked, leftist, inexperienced charlatan with a highly troubling past.

    You see, most people aren’t like us. Most people, and particularly people back then, didn’t have the time or inclination to spend hours upon hours trying to find the crumbs of truth that the non-FOX media couldn’t filter away to protect their Chocolate Jeebus. And we didn’t have the wherewithal to push it through the non-FOX media blackout when we found something, which we did all the time.

    So I ended up on Election night tearing my hair out and screaming “how the fuck could you morons not SEE that? Are you STUPID or something?” when what I should have been saying was “how could they NOT vote the way they did?” I should have spent more time in their shoes, erasing all of the stuff that I’d learned that they hadn’t, pretending that I was just a hard-working American still somewhat believing that the media wasn’t full of shit and had an agenda, and I would have reached the conclusion that they really couldn’t be expected to vote any other way.

    To them, the BlightBringer was a charming, young, hopeful, optimistic guy who promised to end the partisan bickering and to bring an end to an endless war that had been bungled in oh so many ways by the previous administration thanks to their well-intentioned, but still very wrong, attempt to turn our Armed Forces into nursemaids for democracy in countries that neither wanted nor understood the concept.

    And, on the other side, they had a mumbling, senile, media-whoring old fool retread from previous runs for president with no clearly communicated agenda. Not only was it terribly difficult to figure out what the snooze-fest of a doddering old fool stood for and why he should be president, he never ever volunteered a single reason why his opponent shouldn’t be president. The latter because he feared and fears, more than anything else including the destruction of our Republic, that the New York Times might stop writing fawning articles about his charming, rogueish ways as a “maverick.”

    So on the one hand those NON-political junkie voters had a charming, cheerful youngster who was also black (First Black President™!) who promised to end all of the misery and get us back to working together and, on the other, they had a geriatric arse with no compelling argument for himself and not even a weak argument against his opponent, because that might make the leftist EneMedia mad at him.

    That’s what our fellow Americans, the ones who aren’t up till all hours mainlining politics, saw.

    How could they not vote for the BlightBringer?

    The BlightBringer doesn’t have that advantage now, however. Romney IS a competent, likeable, obviously in charge of the facts, even presidential guy who isn’t afraid to call his opponent out when the situation calls for it. Ogabe, on the other hand, for all of the attempts of the EneMedia to cover up the myriad of failures, acts of treason and scandals of his misadministration, can’t escape the reality that we live in.

    The very same voters who broke for him back then because they didn’t know anything about him can’t escape the reality that they live in, no matter how much he says that it isn’t so. No amount of cheerleading from the Enemedia about how the economy is “back on track” and how our standing in the world is stronger than ever can overcome the fact that not a single American doesn’t at least know somebody who is out of a job, somebody who has given up on even trying to find one, somebody who has lost his home or come damn close to it etc.

    “Who you gonna believe? Ogabe and his Palace Guard, the non-FOX media, or your own lying eyes?”

    2012 is NOT 2008. And unless you pretend that 2010 never happened, that ought to be crystal clear. The Leftist Party got the worst drubbing they’ve gotten in 50 years. It would take a very special kind of pessimism to think that they’ve become that much more popular since then.

    I’m hopeful. I wasn’t in 2008, although I tried my best to be in order to not hurt the morale of the troops prior to battle, but I am now.

    We will win this.

    And then the REAL work begins. It’s not even close to being over.

    But first, we have to win this.

    Its not even a question for me. Romney might not have the ideology I want perfectly; I may not be sure, entirely, what he will do in office. Here’s the difference; I am ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY sure what Obama will do if he gets back in office. I am stone cold, dead certain what he wants to do and the ruinous road he wants to drag us down. ANYONE who is not determined to drag us down that road would get me to crawl over oil-coated burning broken glass to vote for him. Is doesn’t hurt that, while I might not agree with all of his policies at least Romney seems to be someone I wouldn’t have to be ashamed of. Someone who has at least an inkling of what the dignity of the office entails. Who will treat the office as it should be treated rather than as a personal fiefdom to indulge his personal power fantasies, which is what we have now. Having a president that I don’t have to be EMBARRASSED to see in public, one that I don’t have to restrain myself from flipping a double fisted bird at his image on the screen when an ad shows up if I am in mixed company.

    I will vote for him and vote with a tune on my lips, because at least if we get Obama out, we can START FIGHTING ON OUR OWN GROUND INSTEAD OF ON THEIRS. I’d much rather be fighting to hold republicans to their stated ideals than having to fight to prevent Democrats from zealously implementing their ideas. I would much rather be trying to put steel in the spine of a wishy washy ally than having to actively fight an avowed enemy.

    Vote. Vote. Run, walk, Crawl. Run right through them, they’re demoralized as hell, so to speak. Then, after breaking through the lines … KEEP RUNNING.

    Excellent analysis, the only thing left out of the “perfect storm” being the financial crisis and recession in 2007-8.

    Romney never was my first choice, but after watching him campaign I’ve warmed to the point that I didn’t hold my nose when I voted today (2 1/2 hours in line). And it was a real thrill to be able to vote for Col. West.

    But it really comes down to a simple equation here: A vote for anyone other than Romney is a positive FOR Obama. You may as well have voted for Rosie Odonuts and Cindy Sheehan (Yes, they really are on the ballot.)

    Oh, I think he would’ve won in 2008 without the voter fraud. McCain was an incompetent RINO without question.

    That doesn’t mean they weren’t working their little fraudulent hearts out anyway.

    Romney STILL isn’t my first choice. However he is my ONLY choice. I’m looking forward to writing many a pissy letter to the Romney White House, doing my part keeping his feet to the flame.

    And Crunchie…… I really like my my Representative (Glenn Thompson), he’s a good guy, votes the right way, but I think I’d trade him in a hot second for West.

    The first time I met Col. West was when he was running for his first term, before the redistricting that put me in the new district he’s running for now. At the time I lived 1 mile outside the district he was running for. I told him that and that I wished I could vote for him. He said “I’ll be fighting for you too anyway.” I’m sure he would extend the same to you Gingis.
