Coddle Conservatives?

After a historic night, President Obama has won his reelection and the American people have spoken.

Social Media helped play a part in his victory and I certainly enjoyed the Facebook posts of both Republicans and Democrats;  Mostly I enjoyed the camaraderie.

Today I am overjoyed.

I'm overjoyed because I know what I just bought - what Americans just bought.

I know that the union is preserved, the world still respects us, and our economy WILL bounce back.

I know I have a president I can trust with the 3am phone call.

A man who came from humble means and lived the American Dream.

A common man, who's compassion is true, and who's logic is even truer.

A proven commander-in-chief and an advocate for our military.

A decider, not a hem hawer.


They're such pantywaists, aren't they?

Some say I shouldn't gloat, that I shouldn't be so hard on the Right among us --some of them dear family and friends-- that I should just rise above it.

Yeah, not gonna happen...

You see, I have this great gift, God gave me the memory --ironically-- of an elephant.

I remember the last 4 years.

I remember the lies, hate, bigotry, fear, and distortion.

I see an obstructionist Congress still in place.

I see that if the Republican party doesn't disassociate themselves from the extreme haters, religious fanatics, and the rich, that they're doomed as a party.

Don't get me wrong, I like to see them fall out of touch with Latinos, women, youth, gays and this year, the common man.

Because that's what they do. All you have to do is listen to one of them.

Texas called it for Romney and in the process sent a moron to join the other moron it already has in the US senate.

It's like living in the old south but without the balls and courtesy.


I don't think I'll be nice to you today.

YOU have held the people hostage, the system of government, the education, the health, the rights of the American people. All for what?

To promote your only agenda; To ensure Obama fails. The party of No.

All the while, not stepping back from extremist factions in your party, but rather embracing them somehow, as if the rest of us wouldn't notice.

I hope this hurts.

I hope it hurts bad.

I hope it hurts like a caning.

I hope you take all that anger and focus it on being a little nicer and a little less skeptical of government and the good it can do when managed effectively.

Reagan is dead, and his ideas damn sure are.
Change them.

Trickle down is the opposite of what it was supposed to be.
Change it.

Change your ways, Republicans.

Otherwise, you won't be a formidable adversary for me to poke fun at anymore.

There Will Be Lawyers

Do you think a spoiled, over-privileged, little shit like Mitt Romney is going to go quietly in the night?

Methinks not.

As the 4 year, Tea Party campaign against our president draws to a close, we mustn't forget the obstructionism.

This election is more about "Black" and "White" than anything else.

Don't believe me?

Take a look at the southern states and tell me racism is dead in America?

Are we seeing the possible end to the Modern Republican Party?

If the GOP loses tonight, don't you have to wonder if they're ever going to restructure?

Don't you think that they would realize that their plan to deny the president any success, to turn away, to point their finger in his face, to hold the credit rating of the USA hostage, to hold the country's citizens hostage, wouldn't you assume that a Romney loss would force them to take another tact next time?

Guess again, Buster!

To quote their last illiterate leader:

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."            

--George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004 

No, tonight I see lawyers, guns and money.

I see Daniel Day Lewis in "There Will Be Blood".

So America, it's up to you.

I'm not stupid, I'm just from Texas.

Texans will be woefully inept when their vote for Romney parlays into an uneducated vote for Ted Cruz.

This lack of knowledge will hurt and continue to embarrass Texans nationally.

I have to say, my family NEEDS OBAMA TO WIN!

Plain and simple.

We need it.

UPDATE:  Don't believe in "Voter Suppression" just because it's never happened to you?

It might behoove you to know that this election will not be decided by a handful of states.

It will be decided by a handful of counties.

This makes "Voter Suppression" easy to play.

Still don't believe me?

Click Here.

Did I mention Mitt Romney's wife and son own many of the voting machines in Ohio?

Just a little trivia.

These toons close at 7 p.m. this evening

The Weekly Wrangle

The Texas Progressive Alliance marks the end of another long election season with a reminder to cast your ballot tomorrow -- or to call your neighbor and remind them to do so -- as it brings you this week's roundup of the best of the left of Texas from last week.

Off the Kuff asks whether Texas Latinos are like Latinos elsewhere ... or not.

Harris County is a swing county based on the numbers from the experts, and whomever can get those who haven't voted early to the polls on Tuesday will likely eke out a very close win... if PDiddie at Brains and Eggs (and the two experts) can be believed.  

BossKitty at TruthHugger could not resist the significance of eye-opening events reinforcing climate change discussions along the east coast of the United States: URGENT: Impending Health Crisis After Sandy. And maybe the Tea-Publican mantra about "entitlements" can be redefined now: “Evil” Entitlements Soar As Hurricane Sandy Redraws America’s Map.  

WCNews at Eye on Williamson says the problem with education is not how we finance it, it's poverty, in Poverty and Public Education.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wonders why it is that when mail-in ballots are so heavy, voters must be reassured that they will be delivered regardless of postage.

Neil at Texas Liberal wrote that Texas House District 134 Republican incumbent Sarah Davis is a Tea Party extremist. Neil sure hopes that Ms. Davis will lose this Tuesday to Democrat Ann Johnson.
