Obama: “Voting is the best revenge” (with video)

Revenge.  Against those who presume to run against him, against those who want to keep more of what they’ve earned rather than hand it over to you, revenge against those who believe in a stable rule of law and checks and balances, not in an imperial President who relies on some Alinsky seminars and a few years doing community organizing to convince himself he is uniquely positioned to know everything, to run everything, and to control everything, including markets.

Revenge, that is, against you.

The next civil war is coming. Bank on it.

  1. Scores to settle, eh Barry? What then when you lose, ya putz?

  2. The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it. Pretty creepy.


  3. I thought that “living well” was the best revenge. Though I suppose “living well on somebody else’s dime” is probably even better.

  4. Today SCOAMF stands for “Stopped Clock of a Miserable Failure,” because my vote is going to be sweet, sweet revenge.

  5. I happen to know that donating to Protein Wisdom is the best revenge.

  6. Speaking of banks, I have a handful of banks as customers and the first of every month is when the welfarians all clog the banks to cash their checks.

    And it irritates me, because it is like I am paying them to stand in my way.

  7. The next civil war is guaranteed because they’ve put us on the path to insolvency. They have made sure that public employee pensions are unsustainable. Sooner or later, the pension plans will run out of money and then it will be on the taxpayers to bail them out.

    Don’t want to bail them out? You don’t want to bail out police and firemen? How are we going to win a civil war if the police are on the side of the Democrats?

    If you want to prevent insolvency, you need structural change in America so that insolvency would benefit conservatives more than liberals. Then liberals will stop their insane push to make America insolvent, and we might avoid this civil war.

  8. How are we going to win a civil war if the police are on the side of the Democrats?

    We outnumber them by a considerable margin, and their ranks will be thinned by successive cuts as budgets dry up. That, and we’re fighting on the side of liberty, which still counts for something.

  9. – Wish I could do more in that department but, well, if I get some new eyeballs and back in harness, then for sure. In the mean time I’ll go with as much moral support as I can muster, so heres my pre-election take on things FWIW.

    Obama wins: Well, we know pretty much what to expect. More domestic division and worsening foriegn policy “adventures” even as things head for a climax with Iran. On the economy, that 0.1 uptick in the unemplyment number, fake as we all know it to be, is still HUGE. They are forced to show a worsening, even with all that political pressure, at a time when the economy should be seeing a holiday bounce. That is ominous in anybody’s book., and portends a return to higher numbers if he wins, most probably it signals a second recession if theres no change in leadership and economic policies.

    – The rest? Well congress will remain in gridlock umless we win a majority, not at all an impossibility, and raising an even greater likelyhood of taking a super majority in 2014.

    – The rest writes itself to the point you could phone it in for the next four years and civil war will loom that much closer.

    Romney wins: The economy will sit for a bit while the investment groups wait to see what style Romney governs with, and if the playing field for business is in an uptrend overall, particularly with trade and China. That ‘god knows how many trillions of investment dollars’ sitting in offshore banks is just screaming to get placed, so we should see some movement in the early part of the ist quarter if Romney doesn’t totally screw the pooch.

    – The same status as far as Congress, both short term and the possibility of a sweep now, and even more so in 2014, depending again on how Romney leads.

    – Foreign policy is a crap shoot, both because we don’t know how Iran/Syria will act up and whether/when Israel will throw the switch. We also don’t know how many bullshit deals Obama has bartered for whatever hairbrained theory of the month he has been into. Benghazi is a big black cesspool of we don’t know what behind the scenes, so again who knows what Romney can even accomplish at this point.

    – Overall, a slow but steady improvement at first, followed by a faster paced recovery. Democrats will set themsleves up nicely for a even harder bitch slap in 2014, as they obstruct and the whore media does everything it can to demonize Romney and the right, to their own downfall.

  10. Little optimistic, BBH, but I’ll take it.

    …Especially on “Clear at the poor, the rich must run” NYT weekend.

  11. I’m wondering what happens when so many of the D’s in power kick the bucket, since so many of the Trve Believers™ are rather long in the tooth? Are there enough young bucks to fill the breach? Their ideas aren’t sustainable as is being borne out over these last few years as Bronco has ramped up the spending.

    Does the D party crumble and die only to regroup as something else again?

  12. – Leigh, there are always new generations of young impressionable “have-not” minds just waitingt to be indoctrinated. It goes all the way back to the Greeks who used military trainingg to focus all that glandular inexperienced energy away from social mischief.

  13. Thing about the way Team D passes on its doctrine is, understanding is discouraged because it undermines devotion to the paradigm. And as each succeeding generation embraces without understanding, the incoherence doubles.

    Think Obama, only more so.

  14. BBH and McGehee, you are both saying the same thing that I was thinking. What I was wondering is if they will still call themselves Dems or will they go whole hog Progessives/Communists?

  15. – Progressivism is really a misnomer, as is the worf Liberalism, when applied to the post modern movement, which us just old fashioned Marxo-socialism, with a good bit of facism thrown in the mix.

    – If you go back to the turn of the 20th centuary, Woodrow Wilson, Emma Goldberg times, it was the same thing. But in those days society delt very directly and very harshly with what it recognized was an existential threat to the stability and well being of the entire country.

    – The irony is that it was only when the country was at a high level of comfort that the anarchists and so forth could bloom in plain sight without being torn to shreds. The Euro-Lefties that immigrated in the aftermath of WWII went right for the school system (indoctrination), and the news system (control communications) in a US that was tired of war and mullified with the desire for peace, even as we had to fight the cold war, which gave the Left cover.

    – It was all by design, and at least to the point of where we are, it has worked. The end game is dismal failure and a collapse of society, but the Left doesn’t care, chaos is what they need, stability is their sworn enemy.

  16. proggtards works fine

  17. I’m gonna need a bigger boat gun safe.

  18. Much better to force pension reform on police/firefighters now. They should transition from plans based on empty promises, to plans based on how much money is in the pension fund. (So if the pension fund is underfunded, instead of going broke, the retirees simply end up collecting smaller pensions.) Their pensions should take a slight cut, and government should contribute money at the time of the transition to make their pensions solvent and prevent them from taking a big cut.

    Then, when the teacher’s pension fund goes bankrupt, the police/firefighters will say “hey, I suffered a slight cut in my pension to make it sustainable. You never made your pension sustainable. This is your fault. You greedy, shortsighted teachers are on your own.”

    We’ll have the police on our side. Simple as that.

  19. What I was wondering is if they will still call themselves Dems or will they go whole hog Progessives/Communists?

    They don’t know what any of those labels mean. They think “democracy” and “freedom” are two words for the same thing, and both mean what we would call “license.”

  20. They’ll continue to inhabit and animate the dead husk of the party of Jackson and FDR and JFK while imagining all of those men believed 100% in whatever their doctrine of the day happens to be, and if they didn’t it doesn’t matter because they’re dead anyway and they lived more than 100 years ago and spoke a form of English no one today would ever understand.

  21. In short, the up-and-coming leadership of the Democrats is anyone who’s ever been featured on “Jaywalking” on “The Tonight Show.”

  22. Ohio R/R event is off the charts tonight.

  23. We’ll have the police on our side. Simple as that.

    – We don’t need police on our ‘side’. Thats a totally eroneous meme fully created out of Leftist whole clouth and cynical manipulation of government and the electorate. The trouble starts right there when you accept that falicious premise.

    – The public sector works for us. As soon as they were allowed to organixe, set their own wage scales and benefits, totally out of scale with private industry, we lost all control.

    – All alarmist fear mongering aside, Reagan showed how to deal with public sector unions.

  24. Yup. He’s right. That’s why I early voted against his ass on Oct 23 and made sure my e-ballot said what I selected before I submitted it. Revenge.


  25. How are we going to win a civil war if the police are on the side of the Democrats?

    We outgun them.

  26. Is it just me, or is Ted Strickland the best Ohio surrogate Romney could ask for?

  27. The police are, in general, highly overrated.

  28. Damned html.

  29. Dave Carter at Ricochet pens a good piece — “It’s About Liberty, and You’re Not Stupid“, quotes James Madison on the button:

    If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress. Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.

  30. Ha, some dumb poll has Romney ahead in Minnesota, don’ch’a know: think I’ll have another beer to celebrate.

  31. Stevie Wonder croons for Barry.

  32. Byron York loosens his tie, picks up a pair of pom-poms and cheers. A fella’s got to have a little funnin’ now and again.
