On every measurable issue President Barack Obama has been a failure, we all know the numbers, so today… I hope they are satisfied!
For two presidential election cycles they told us “run moderates and you’ll win” I hope the Republican Party ignores said advice going forward… I’m not holding my breath!
The fiscal conservative wing of the party must take the wheel, I’ve been saying this for years but it’s now an imperative, or the Republican Party will be relegated to permanent minority status. Letting liberal to moderate republicans or the religious right to control the direction of the party will be it’s undoing.
That said, there’s a lot of blame to go around Mitt Romney nor the GOP are the real loser in this election, once again, it’s the American People who lose… ironically the group that voted for failure last night are the very people who will be affected most. Just like Californians who foolishly voted themselves new taxes yesterday the American people voted themselves higher taxes, higher food costs, higher gas prices, higher unemployment, more people on food stamps, an economic death spiral, more overburdening federal regulation, and the worst recovery since the great depression.
So remember the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero when pointing fingers and assigning blame:
“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.”
— Marcus Tullius Cicero
