The Die is Cast

Whoever is victorious in the election for President of the United States today, some very pertinent facts have become clear, and many of these are positive in nature.
That said, personally I have found this election cycle to be the most disgusting I have even seen in America. The vitriol, misrepresentation, and outright lies emanating from the Obama camp and liberal Super PACs surpasses anything I have previously witnessed – and I’ve witnessed some questionable campaigns.
I grew up in the metropolitan New York area, wherein the prevailing political influences have been liberal for a long time. Obviously, general elections in New York have largely favored Democrat Presidents, Senators and Representatives for decades; when Republicans have been elected, these were essentially liberal Republicans who could never have gotten elected outside of major urban areas.
When I was a youth, local elections often included individuals we all knew were mobbed up, but that’s the way it worked, and there wasn’t much anyone could do about it. That influence definitely carried over to the statehouse, and only abated – to a degree – when you got to the level of the Governor’s mansion, although some might argue otherwise these days. Growing up, one of my concerns was that some mobbed-up former governor from New York would wind up winning the presidency.
In retrospect, that might not have been so bad…
As we’ve closed in on the Presidential election, more and more observers, pundits, and prognosticators have begun to assert that the surprise will not be that Barack Obama is beaten, but how badly he winds up getting beaten.
But I did indeed digress. Referencing those things which may bring that defeat about, I believe that some issues which have gone unreported have not gone completely unnoticed by the American people. These are also telling insofar as they are indicators of public sentiment as regards President Obama. Most importantly, I believe that many Americans have come to the conclusion that this is a pivotal election, one that must re-affirm – as radio host Glenn Beck intones – who we are.
For example: The Republican base is motivated; the liberal base is not. GOP nominee Mitt Romney is turning out impassioned, large crowds, while Obama’s have become pitifully small compared to the norm – certainly compared to his showing in 2008. Romney has appeared sincere and cogent, while Obama has been passive-aggressive.
Most recently, the cover-up behind the inconsistency in the press reports and the administration’s accounts of the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 has taken a toll on Obama’s support, despite the interference run by the press. Even the positive press the President received “looking presidential” in the wake of Hurricane Sandy is backfiring as the bureaucratic megalith in New York (a liberal-run bureaucratic megalith, by the way) proves abysmally ineffective in providing disaster relief for New Yorkers.
The wretched state in which America finds itself economically and in terms of foreign policy certainly will militate against Obama’s re-election effort. We also have those Americans who, thanks to the availability of information and such enlightening exposés as Dinesh D’Souza’s film, 2016: Obama’s America, have become aware of just how dangerous the man is (I am taking as given of course, the fact that the American press has devolved into nothing more than the propaganda arm for the global socialist movement in America).
Thus, more people than the average dedicated conservative or libertarian might be aware of have indeed learned of such things as Obama’s closeted communist sympathies, and that of his cabinet. They know about Benghazigate, and Fast and Furious. In fact, all but the most dedicated Obama supporters, the profoundly deluded, and the pitifully stupid have scratched the surface and witnessed the festering wound of corruption beneath. They have long since begun to enumerate the discrepancies between what Obama says and what he does, what he has said he’s done and what he has in fact done.
The public sentiment itself as regards President Obama has changed too. Even if the random voter has not come to the conclusion that Obama subscribes to an evil political doctrine, and may in fact still like him, practical considerations speak for themselves. They can see the suffering around them, if in fact they are not suffering themselves.
Lastly, despite the 2008 election having historical significance, the novelty has definitely worn off. While race was never an issue for most American voters, it is likely that millions of politically-aware Americans have determined to keep their thoughts to themselves due to the oversensitivity vis-à-vis race on the part of so many.
Having made said determination, they will nevertheless be voting against Obama, since he has proven that a black man can be just as duplicitous, deceitful, and inept as a white one.
