Nov. 2 "The People" Didn't Speak; They Grunted

Americans awoke November 3 to more headlines and soundbites about "the people's voice." I'd call it more of a grunt.


We The People by self
"The American people's voice was heard at the ballot box," declared Speaker-of-the-House-to-be John Boehner. Soon variations of "the people's voice" echoed around traditional news and Internet. Obama has to say, "I hear you, and then, I heard the people speak last night," parroted columnist Mark Shields on PBS's News Hour . "The people have spoken" framecontinues to dominate analyses of what happened and thus what must follow. Seems clear, actually misleading.

And more

Obama just amazed us---what a losing team in the White House

How can we keep from losing the Senate in 2012. The president has gone south--did I misunderestimate him while in India, he apologized to the Indians for allowing us to send them 2 million jobs in call centers. And then he gets excited to the point of orgasim when told that that 150,000 out of 17 million people here went back to work last month......

I can't believe this guy--he makes Jimmy Carter look like a political genius. Why couldn't Obama be a Republican? He acts like one all the time....
