I keep seeing headlines about assisted suicide and think they're referring to what the voters did last night to the United States of America.
The tipping point has been reached. Obama's disastrous policies and glaring failures, domestic and foreign, are acceptable to more than half of the electorate. Back in August Mark Steyn wrote:
This election represents the last exit ramp before the death spiral.And with their eyes wide open, voters chose to keep the foot on the accelerator and fly past the exit. To quote Steyn again, from last night:
A lot of the telly chatter is about how Republicans don’t get the shifting demographics: America is becoming more of a “brown country,” as Kirsten Powers put it on Fox. But New Hampshire is overwhelmingly white — and the GOP still blew it. The fact is a lot of pasty, Caucasian, non-immigrant Americans have also “shifted,” and are very comfortable with Big Government, entitlements, micro-regulation, Obamacare and all the rest — and not much concerned with how or if it’s paid for.Emphasis added. Romney was never my candidate but I'm not up for sorting through all that again.
If this is the way America wants to go off the cliff, so be it. But I wish we’d at least had a Big Picture election. The motto of the British SAS is “Who dares wins.” The Republicans chose a different path. A play-it-safe don’t-frighten-the-horses strategy may have had a certain logic, but it’s unworthy of the times.
Footnote: A choice quote from Ace of Spades:
A hurricane. I can't believe it. A hurricane a week before an election, in which the president doesn't do anything but place a few phone calls and get his picture taken with a fat baby who's in love with Bruce Springsteen, swings the most important election of our time.I don't agree about the storm being a real factor -- I think the problem is that liberals outnumber conservatives -- but he expresses my thoughts about Christie pretty well there.
