WASHINGTON – Exit polls showed Hurricane Sandy was a big issue for Barack Obama voters.
Presumably this means they believe the hurricane was caused by catastrophic, man-made climate change?
Or is it that they were so impressed by his quick action in restoring power, getting FEMA aid to victims and getting food to people so they wouldn’t be eating out of garbage dumpsters?
Reason dictates it must be the first. Even though there has not been rising global temperatures now for 17 years!
. . .
What’s up with Bob Dylan – a strong supporter of Israel?
Did he sell out for a Medal of Freedom bestowed by Barack Obama?
Monday night he predicted, with some glee, that Obama would win in “a landslide.”
He made the prediction in the middle of performing “Blowin’ in the Wind.”
He added: “Don’t believe the media.”
Don’t believe the media? Have the media been pulling for Romney?
. . .
No one wants to say it. But Karl Rove has some explaining to do. His job was to win the Senate for the Republicans. But he blew it badly.
He picked and chose between Republicans candidates he wanted to support with tens of millions of dollars GOP donors entrusted to him. And he chose poorly – and performed poorly.
For instance, one of his favorites – Connie Mack in Florida – lost by a bigger margin than did the candidate he vilified, Todd Akin in Missouri. But, across the board, he got skunked.
In other words, he was “the architect” of defeat.
The biggest loser on Election Night? Karl Rove.
. . .
Obama interview on election night. Says he’s a “servant” of the people: “I have served as a state senator, a U.S. senator and now as the president. And each and every time I’ve been reminded that it is the people where power ultimately resides; and I’m their representative, I’m their servant.”
Apparently, many Americans believed him.
. . .
WND Editor Joseph Farah called the election for Mitt Romney at 6:50 pm. After finishing a dinner of takeout Chinese food, he opened a fortune cookie. It read: “Your life will be happy and peaceful.”
At 11:15 pm, when Ohio was called for Barack Obama. Farah choked on his fortune cookie.
. . .
It hardly went unnoticed by the jealous and zealous monolithic media when WND senior staff writer and multiple No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi began traveling with the Mitt Romney campaign weeks ago.
Various news agencies questioned Corsi and WND why he was on the press plane.
His answer was simple: “I’m a journalist covering a presidential candidate. Where else should I be?”
If only these press gatekeepers were aware of what happened yesterday – when Romney’s inner circle invited Corsi to abandon the press plane and travel with the Romney plane!
Corsi, who had planned to spend a week or two on the campaign trail, ended up staying much longer – capping it off with a stay tonight in Boston for the planned election victory night celebration.
. . .
GOProud, the only national “gay” group to fully endorse Mitt Romney, issued a statement congratulating President Obama:
“We congratulate Barack Obama on his win. The President performed a spectacular political sleight of hand in this election,” said Jimmy LaSalvia, GOProud Executive Director and Co-Founder. “Instead of this election being a referendum on his failed record on jobs and the economy, Obama and his campaign successfully made this about side-show issues and the culture wars.
“The truth is that we have serious challenges facing our country: more than 23 million Americans are looking for work, real wages have declined and we are staring at a devastating fiscal cliff,” said Christopher R. Barron, GOProud Chief Strategist and Co-Founder. “President Obama has asked for – and been given – a second term. It is our sincerest hope that President Obama will reach out to Republicans and that he understands the need to work with members of Congress from both parties to find solutions to these serious challenges.”
