Charles Krauthammer: Calls the 2014 Midterms “A Nuclear Explosion” … “The Worst Wall-To-Wall Shellacking You Will Ever See in a Midterm Election”
During Fox News Special Report with Bret Baier, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer spoke the truth as to what the 2014 midterm elections meant, as President Barack Obama did not and refused not to by making excuses after excuse. Krauthammer said that Obama played as the puzzled observer and acted as if it was difficult to comprehend what message was sent. Was it really that difficult to understand when Democrats lost more House seats, lost control of the US Senate as the GOP will most likely pick up 9 Senate seats, 3 more than what was needed to gain control. Don’t forget that Republicans won governorships in Massachusetts, Delaware and Illinois, far from red states.
Maybe Barack Obama needs to listen to Democrat Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia … ‘This is a real ass-whuppin’.
Krauthammer hit President Barack Obama for pretending the election didn’t mean much as he noted during his afternoon press conference that “two-thirds of the electorate didn’t show up.”
Krauthammer: [Obama] played as the puzzled observer. He was asked about the meaning of the election, and he said “I’ll leave to others the reading of tea leaves.” Was this really a subtle result? Was this sort of complicated and nuanced? This was the worst wall-to-wall, national, unmistakable, unequivocal shellacking that you will ever see in a midterm election, and it happened on just about every level. You’ve got in the House the Republicans now have the largest majority since 1929.
In the Senate, the Democrats have lost seven, probably nine, and by huge margins, McConnell is supposed to be neck-and-neck, he won by 15 points, Arkansas 18 points. And then the — the one excuse the Republicans have is “well this election was played on their home turf, on red turf.” Well, you know, Maryland, Massachusetts and Illinois are not exactly red states. All of them elected, shockingly, Republican governors. “The Economist” called this a massacre and Obama says, “I don’t read tea leaves,” and remember, what he said about the election. It’s about his policies, everywhere, every single one. Of course it was about him, of course it was his ideology and the execution of his leadership. This was a wall-to-wall rejection of Obama-ism and he pretended that this was an election that didn’t have a lot of meaning because two-thirds of the electorate didn’t show up.
The race I liked the most was the one in Maryland, where I live, where the Lt. Governor Anthony Brown was considered such a shoo-in, no one spoke about the Maryland race. No one. You didn’t hear a word, and the Republican, Larry Hogan, came out of nowhere. He won by 8 points. This tells you — the reason I like it, it shows the extent of this political event into the bluest of the blue, Maryland. It wasn’t a tea leaf election. It was a nuclear explosion.
WAVE ELECTION 2014 … Emperor Barack Obama Has No Clothes and No Authority To Tell Anyone His Radical Liberal Agenda is Wanted by Americans
Call it what you will, a political tsunami, tidal wave or butt kicking … the end result is Emperor Obama has no clothes, no radical leftist agenda and no future.
If last night’s 2014 midterm election was a Little League baseball game, they would have called it early on the mercy rule. If it was a high school football game they would have kept the clock running and if it were a boxing match they ref would have called the fight for the safety and health of the boxer. Make no mistake about it, the American people spoke and it was a complete and total repudiation of Obama, Democrats and their liberal, failed agenda.
- House Republicans are looking at their largest majority since 1928 according unofficial results from last night’s election.
- Senate Republicans picked up a net gain of 7 seats with 2 races still in question in Alaska and a Louisiana runoff that will most likely both go to the GOP.
- Republicans were supposed to have a net loss of governorships, yet now find GOP governors in the deep blue states of Massachusetts, Illinois and Maryland.
The era of the Barack Obama – Harry Reid gridlock is over.
Hmm … Look what happen when Team Obama, Democrats and the IRS are not affecting elections.
WOW, ANOTHER SHOCKING RESULT FROM THE BLUE, BLUE STATE OF MARYLAND …
The governors race in deep blue Maryland has been called for the Republican Larry Hogan. WHAT? That is correct, Republican Larry Hogan has defeated Democrat Anthony Brown. Not Hillary Clinton, not Michelle Obama and not even Barack Obama stumping for Brown in such a blue state like Maryland could get Anthony Brown over the finish line. But in the end, they failed. According to the Associated Press, Larry Hogan is projected to win with 52.1% of the vote, with 87% of precincts reporting. Mr. Brown won 46.4% of the vote. It was most certainly a surprise GOP gubernatorial pickup.
Larry Hogan is officially Maryland’s next governor, after Anthony Brown has made a concession speech.
Jessica Kartalija spoke with gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan.
The theme of the evening has been taxes and supporters say that when Hogan enters office, he will hit the ground running.
“We’re all so happy,” said Ellen Sauerbrey, the press secretary for the Hogan campaign. “The results that are coming in are a testament to the fact that it’s not just Republicans who are voting for us…it’s Democrats, it’s independents.”
“What a historic night in Maryland,” Hogan said. “They said it couldn’t be done here in Maryland—but together, we did it! I just received a very gracious call from Lieutenant Governor Brown. He was very gracious and congratulated me on being the 62nd governor of the state of Maryland.”
Hogan thanked Brown and current Governor Martin O’Malley for their service to Maryland. He also thanked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his help and called this the biggest upset in the entire country.
“Thanks to the help of everyone in this room, this is the largest mandate for change in Maryland in 63 years,” Hogan said.
Mr. Hogan’s win, coupled with a slew of Republican victories Tuesday night, is another example of Republicans winning a race where Democrats were considered to have a slight advantage. Florida’s governor’s race also went to a Republican, defying expectations, and Georgia’s Senate race—which was expected to be at the very least tight—went easily to Republican David Perdue.
Anti-Obama sentiment likely gave Mr. Hogan a boost, particularly as Mr. Brown—unlike most Democrats this cycle—didn’t shy away from appearing with the president over the course of his campaign. President Barack Obama stumped for him last month and urged voters to head to the polls, and Mr. Brown called the president a “friend, a partner and a leader.”
VP Joe Biden Predicted Democrats will Retain Conrol of Senate … “It Wont Change Anything We Are About … I Don’t Think We have to Change the Way We Do Business.”
BIDEN PREDICTS DEMOCRATS WILL RETAIN SENATE … OOPS, MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH, +7 AND COUNTING.
In an interview with CNN on November 3, Vice-President said that he did not agree with the odds makers and predicted that Democrats would retain the Senate. Biden was asked, but what if it did happen, would the White House have to change the way they do business? Biden replied, “No, I don’t think we have to change the way we do business. I think we have to be more direct and clear about what it is that we are looking to do.” WHAT? You mean to tell me that elections don’t have consequences when Democrats lose? Aren’t we the hypocrite. I don’t think so Joe, the American people are pissed off as seen by tonight 2014 midterm shellacking they just gave Obama’s agenda, polices and Democrat rule.
What a shock, Democrats lose badly and it would appear from Biden that the Obama White House is going to double down as per Saul Alinsky.
Exit Polls Show that a Majority of Voters Dissatisfied or Angry with Barack Obama and Washington Inside the Beltway Politics
A majority of Americans are dissatisfied or angry with President Barack Obama’s administration and GOP leaders, according to exit polls released Tuesday and analyzed by CNN.
And about 8 in 10 Americans disapprove of how Congress is handling its job, according to a survey of voters outside of polling places on Election Day.
Nearly six in 10 voters are either dissatisfied or angry with both the White House and Republican leaders in Congress. Less than a third of Americans are satisfied with the Obama administration and GOP leaders.
And voters’ confidence in the government has been seriously shaken, with only 1 in 5 voters saying they trust the government to do the right thing.
Ben Stein Says Divider in Chief Obama Playing the Race Card and “Is The Most Racist President There Has Ever Been”
Economist Ben Stein says that President Barack Obama and the Obama White House is the most racist ever …
The Community Agitator in Chief and the Divider in Chief has been the most divisive and polarizing president ever. At every possible opportunity, Barack Obama has played the race card to further divide America. Ben Stein blasted Obama saying, “He [Obama] is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans”.
Stein puts forth that the Democrats are lying to blacks and well, they pretty much are. But when you have nothing but a disastrous record, including record high black unemployment, and especially among black teens, what else is there but the politics of fear.
Economist Ben Stein believes the White House is playing the race card in an effort to get African-Americans to vote against Republicans.
Speaking to Fox News, Stein called President Barack Obama the most racist president in U.S. history.
“The president is the most racist president there has ever been in America,” Stein said. “He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans.”
Stein claimed that Obama and other Democrats are trying to portray the GOP as anti-black.
“What the White House is trying to do is racialize all politics and they’re especially trying to tell the African-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that’s just a complete lie.”
Stein continued: “I watch with fascination – with incredible fascination – all the stories about how the Democratic politicians, especially Hillary [Clinton], are trying to whip up the African-American vote and say, ‘Oh, the Republicans have policies against black people in terms of the economy.’ But there are no such policies.”
Note to Ben Stein, Obama has two more years in office … look for that IRS audit in the mail coming soon.
Sarah Palin Blasts President Barack Obama for His “Stay-at-Home Moms” Comment … ” the President Needs to be Spanked”
WE WILL ASK AGAIN, WHAT PARTY IS TAKING PART IN THE WAR ON WOMEN?
Former Governor and Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin blasted Barack Obama for insulting stay-at-home moms comment he made this past week. Obama told a crowd of female supporters that being a stay-at-home mother is “not a choice we want Americans to make.” Just how clueless could these women possibly be? But this is the kind of divisive crap we continue to get from Obama. Should we be surprised, he is nothing more than a community agitator. So let’s understand this, a woman has a right to abort a child, but not to make a choice of being a stay-at-home mom, REALLY?
Obama Declares Stay-at-Home Moms Aren’t Worth a Hill of Beans; Says It’s a Choice ‘We Don’t Want Americans to Make’
Well that just takes the cake. Sure, Obama’s latest shot across the bow in his own “War on Women” is easily deflected by women like my friends and me testifying to the most precious, irreplaceable seasons of our lives when we were BLESSED to be “stay-at-home moms” (though I don’t remember any of us actually “staying home” in those busiest times of our children’s lives), but Friday’s jab deserves something right back nonetheless. On behalf of former and current stay-at-homers, including my girlfriends who still get together to bake cookies for the bake sale (see photos in my kitchen above), and volunteer to coach kids ball teams, and man the church’s food bank, and entertain latchkey kids, and all that other obnoxiously “housewifey” stuff, the President needs to be spanked.
Barack, do you not know any stay-at-home moms? Are you and Michelle so disconnected from the real world that you think women will accept your intolerant view that we should not have a choice in how we wish to live our lives? You have a way of arrogantly demanding that we fall in line with your sad opinion of today’s American woman. It seems you’d shackle us by your snobbish shunning of one traditional lifestyle choice while taking advantage of power to manifest your liberal view by manipulating public opinion and resources to diminish moms who put career on hold to raise a family. You are really messed up. And you’re so 1960’s.
Yes, the 60’s are calling and they want their ardent yet narrow sexist confines back. See, you just set the women’s movement back a few decades, and I think it’s hilarious because for being the smartest man in the room, you ain’t too smart.
The the rest HERE.
Charles Krauthammer Hammers Obama and Democrats on Ideology, Incompetence & Playing the Race Card … This Election is About Obama Ideology & Incompetence
2014 ELECTION ABOUT LIBERAL IDEOLOGY AND INCOMPETENCE …
During an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” Friday night, Charles Krauthammer discussed the upcoming midterm elections and stated that the Democrats have been airing nasty and racist campaign ads because they’re desperate. When you have nothing to run on, you call some one a racist. As Krauthammer said, the Democrats are not only the party in charge of government, they are the party of government. The American people have lost faith that the Democrats can handle anything as shown by their incompetence with Obamcare, the VA scandal, Secret Service where they leave the front door of the White House open and had been most recently crystallized by their handling of Ebola.
The 2010 election, the shellacking the Democrats took was about ideology. It was about liberal overreach–the stimulus, Obamacare, over-taxation, over-regulation, and we know what the result was. That set off this counterreaction called the Tea Party. And what we’re seeing now six years later is an election that’s not only about ideology. It is a rejection of hyper-liberalism, but there’s now an overlay of sheer incompetence.
“It’s not just that [Democrats] are the party in government, they are the party of government,” Krauthammer said. “[Yet] they can’t run the d**n thing! And that’s why there’s this huge resentment against the Democratic Party and that’s why they’ve got to start calling people names.”
Charles Krauthammer offered his advice for Republicans who get hit with the rhetorical charge of racism:
I think that when you’re accused of being a racist, you don’t even dignify the accusation with a response because then you’re conceding the premise. I have to prove I’m not a racist. I oppose the president because of his policies, I have since the beginning of his administration. If someone wants to imply it’s on account of his race, I will not give them the dignity of a response. That’s not America.
DEMOCRAT SEN. MARK PRYOR SAYS OBAMA HAS BEEN A DRAG ON HIS CAMPAIGN … NO, YOUR VOTING WITH AND AGREEMENT WITH THE OBAMA AGENDA HAS BROUGHT YOU DOWN.
Incumbent Democrat Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor tries in vain to distance himself from President Barack Obama as he finds himself well behind by 7% in the recent RCP average polling to Republican challenger Tom Cotton. Unfortunately for Pryor, it is hard to suddenly call Obama a drag on his campaign and distance one’s self when Sen. Mark Pryor had voted with Obama 93% of the time. However it has been even worse this year … Roll Call lists Pryor in their 10 Most Vulnerable Senators of 2014 and has him voting in support for Obama’s agenda 97% of the time.
In recent days, Pryor has gone farther than he ever has to put daylight between himself and the president, telling Fox News that the biggest liability in his re-election bid is Obama.
“Well, you know, he has been a drag. I mean, I am just going to be honest about that,” Pryor said. “People here know that I have had my fair share of disagreements with him. You can look at gun control issues, Keystone pipeline. I have never supported one of his budgets.”
Sorry Mark Pryor, it is not Obama that is a drag on your campaign, it is that you voted with Obama’s failed policies that the good people of Arkansas soundly reject. You do not represent the folks in Arkansas and much like Blanche Lincoln in 2010, you will be retired from the US Senate.
Isn’t that interesting that Mark Pryor considers President Barack Obama a drag on his campaign, because in2008 Pryor said that Barack Obama was “exactly the right guy for this moment in history”. REALLY? So Sen. Pryor, do you still feel the same? Challenger Tom Cotton has stated that Pryor has voted with Obama 93% of the time and it has been proved by Politifact to be a true statement. Make no mistake about it, Pryor voted to pass Obamacare. Also, he voted for the Obama illegal’s amnesty plan.
Sen. Mark Pryor cast the deciding vote on Obamacare and says he would do it all over again and vote for it, even though the people of Arkansas strongly disapproved of it and the so-called Affordable Health care law is not affordable and does not ensure you can keep your doctor or your insurance, if you liked it. Pryor does not represent Arkansas, he represents the Obama agenda.
Here’s Pryor’s presidential support rate since 2009, when Obama took office.
Year – Presidential support rate
2009 – 95 percent
2010 – 92 percent
2011 – 95 percent
2012 – 91 percent
2013 – 90 percent
Pryor’s votes have lined up with Obama’s stated position on that vote between 90 and 95 percent of the time for the past five years. Cotton’s figure — 93 percent — is right smack in the middle. (The average is 92.6 percent.) So it’s pretty accurate.
It was not that long ago when Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor was singing the praises of Barack Obama and stumping for him asking others to vote for him. Pryor stated that Obama had the leadership skills, the vision and the hope that America needs. Pryor went on to say in 2008 that elections have consequences. Pryor asked those in attendance to go out and work as hard as they can for Barack Obama and “let’s bring the chance to America that we need”. Flash-forward to 2014 and I guess Pryor has had a change of hear. Guess what Sen. Pryor, elections do have consequences and the change that America needs includes removing you from office.
EXIT QUESTION: Pryor says Barack Obama has been a drag … is that racist?
Note to Michael Jordan, don’t be shocked by your next IRS audit …
In an interview with Ahmad Rashad, NBA great and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan trash-talked President Barack Obama’s golf game, calling him “a hack” and a “shitty golfer.” Talk about some straight talk. Rashad, looked at the camera with a concerned and puzzled lok following Jordan’s hack comment and said, “if he really wanted to say that, the president of the United States is a hack? YES HE DID BOBBY MOORE, I mean Ahmad Rashad. What part about the fact that Michael Jordan is bigger than Barack Obama don’t you get? It must be another disappointing day for Barack Obama, Democrats are running away from him, can’t remember his name or even if they had voted for him in the past. Now,
“I never played with Obama but I would,” he said. “But no, it’s OK I’d take him out. He’s a hack. It’d be all day playing with him.”
Rashad, looking awkwardly at the camera, asked Jordan if he really wanted to “say that, the president of the United States is a hack?”
“I never said he wasn’t a great politician,” Jordan said. “I’m just saying he’s a sh***y golfer.”
A note to Michael Jordan … I am saying that Obama isn’t a great politician, in fact he is a political hack as well.
