BO wins, no mandate…the markets speak
“While you people stay in your FOX bubble, we’re moving on to our next step which is to join hands with other lCaucasian, Asian, Native American, Latino, Bi-racial and multi-racial Americans who want to do the work of the people to heal our nation and make it the greatest nation in the world, once again.” – calistressthemistress
Isn’t that special? Discounting half the population is never going to make this the “greatest nation” once again. Obama has no “mandate”, his victory was one of the closest in history (2 million votes) and less votes then in 2008. the R-words still control the House, thus the purse strings. There are now 30 Republican Governors installed out of “57” states (yes, there are just 50, but let’s not quibble with BO on that matter). While the left is “joining hands” and having the kumbayah moment, the markets are looking at a different reality…from Zero Hedge (charts at the link)
S&P 500 are plunging… (moar Bernanke trumped by moar Fiscal Cliff
and gold is soaring (moar Bernanke) – catching and surpassing stocks…
USD weakness (moar Bernanke)…
and Tsy Strength (moar Bernanke)
Bloomberg has an interesting article…..the left is so busy cloud tripping they don’t notice the small things like this…
The dollar fell against the yen on speculation Barack Obama’s re-election as president will boost chances the U.S. will maintain monetary stimulus policies that tend to weaken the greenback.
Isn’t that great? Just what we need to make the US “the greatest nation in the world again”
and, from the left leaning Politico
And his hard-won victory seemed too narrow and too rooted in the Democratic base to grant him anything close to a mandate — much less the popular support needed to break the deadlock of Washington partisanship as he promised during the campaign.
this from Hillary is 44…..Democrat and left
After a campaign of fear and smear, an economy in shambles, a world adrift from American leadership, corruption and lies, Barack Obama has enough electoral votes to drag America further into the abyss. The near even distribution of popular votes indicates the country is as divided as ever.
The House of Representatives is even firmer in the hands of Republicans and they will not be in a giving vein after the way Obama has attacked and smeared. There is no mandate for Obama from the voters because Obama ran a substance-less campaign of no proposals or plans.
If you despair or, if you think the fight is not worth a bloody nose or two, remember who and what we do fight for. We have to hold their feet to the fire, we are also proud Americans who love our country. We will not be denied our voices, we will not shut up and sit down.
My counsel to you tonight: Please, do not be bitter. Do not fall prey to the Beltway blame game. Do not get mired in small things. Do not become vengeful creatures like our political opponents who voted out of spite instead of love of country.
Elections have consequences….today those consequences will cost the American consumer in higher prices for the basics, food, energy, oil. This is what the left calls a victory? What will they tell the poor and the middle class as they see their dollar shrink even more?
