The Truth About Tuesday
By Brian Ward
President Obama came onto the American scene sweeping the nation into a frenzy because of a failing economy. He promised the world to all who would believe, only to deliver political rancor and the most divisive legislation in modern American times. Conservatives everywhere thought surely the American public would have voted to replace him after all he has done to destroy American values and send our economy into a downward spiral that our children and grandchildren will pay for. Unfortunately, it appears that either the truth never got out or it fell on deaf ears, and now we must endure another four years.
Conservatives and Republicans have been stunned and disheartened since Tuesday, but before we completely lose heart over his re-election, let’s look at Obama’s true legacy and the lasting impact it is having on the Democratic Party.
President Obama was elected into office in 2008 with 69,456,897 votes. He started with 57 U.S. Senate seats, 257 U.S. House Seats, 26 Governors, 1,025 State Senate seats, 3,059 State House seats, and complete control of 23 State Legislatures. These numbers include many coat-tail wins resulting from Obama winning the election.
President Obama then enacted the Health Care Mandate (54% still disapprove), endorsed homosexual marriage, fought for male transgender rights to use little girls’ restrooms, fought the race and class war, and took the mantle of the liberal left to destroy religious freedoms in America.
How has that worked out for The New Democratic Party? Not too well.
As of 11/07/2012 President Obama won a second term with 60,382,105 votes. He ended up with 53 U.S. Senate seats, 192 U.S. House seats, 19 Governors (1 too close to call), 888 State Senate seats, 2,585 State house seats, and complete control of 19 State Legislatures.
Now, here is what President Obama and The Democrat Party have lost in only four years:
- 9 million votes from 08
- 4 U.S. Senate seats
- 65 U.S. House seats (as of 11/07/12)
- 6 Governors (1 more race still counting)
- Control of 27 State Legislatures
- 137 State Senate seats
- 474 State House seats
The Republican Party has NEVER been this strong! We lost The White House because the Rhino establishment fails to recognize that one-issue candidates who try to straddle the fence simply cannot get elected. John McCain received 59,934,814 votes in 2008 and as it stands now Mitt Romney has received 57,616,691. George W. Bush, who isn’t exactly the poster child of conservatism, received 62,040,610 votes in 2004.
Mitt Romney wanted to run a “gentleman’s campaign” but when you’re in a war with the Chicago Political Mob, you better pony up and fight! Yet, Romney would only fight Obama on two issues at best and continually left the followings issues on the table untouched:
- An annual interest payment that will be close to $1 Trillion by 2020
- President Obama’s video of him calling America arrogant at his G-8 Summit meeting
- VP Biden calling for transgender rights to use little girls’ restrooms in public schools
- Hillary Clinton’s comments before the U.N. that religion is the problem with gays obtaining rights
- That he was the only candidate standing between the American people and 16,000 IRS agents
- States that are now requiring religious groups to allow homosexuals use of church grounds for marriage ceremonies
- Obama’s refusal to prosecute the Ft. Hood murderer for the unborn victim of the mother who was killed
- The biblical exodus of businesses leaving California for other states
- And we could go on for miles and miles with issues left on the table . . .
Why did the Romney campaign not address these issues? I believe it is because these are American issues, but not Mitt Romney issues. The Republican Party elected a candidate whose campaign slogan, during the primary, was “I’m the only one who can beat Obama” and we are now paying the price. I personally believe Governor Romney to be a respectable man, but not a fighting conservative that would have won the White House.
This loss is even more puzzling when you see that America’s enthusiasm for the anti-capital, anti-religious, and anti-life policies of The New Democratic Party are waning. Democrats have lost votes left and right all across the nation. Gallup reported that “Democrats have lost their solid political party affiliation advantage in 18 states since 2008.” While “Republicans have gained a solid advantage in 6 states.”
To examine one example of this erosion look no further than Wisconsin. Wisconsin Democrats spent tens of millions of dollars to oust Republican State Senators in June of 2012 only to see them returned by the voters five months later.
This erosion of support for the policies of the NDP (New Democratic Party) will culminate in 2014, when 20 Democrat Senators will have to answer for supporting Obama and his socialist views. The great news is that the next election occurs right after Obamacare kicks in . . . what a great opportunity for Republicans! However, Republicans must be willing to tell Speaker Boehner to fight for American principles and stop being known as Speaker Compromise. If Speaker Boehner, Karl Rove, and The RNC don’t learn the lessons of Reagan, and start putting money in Conservative candidates, it might be that the Republican Party that started in 1854 ends in 2014.
Bottom line: Blue states are trending red and red states are becoming bastions of conservative powerhouses. It won’t be long before the differences of economic prosperity between red and blue states will be plainly seen by anyone looking.
I leave you with this pretty sight and wonderful final thought:
Less than 30% of eligible voters cast a ballot for President Obama.
