The mentally undeveloped mobs that supported Obama, with all the emotion and rational thought that goes into cheering for a mercenary sports team, have been hoarsely shouting out to the rest of us, that they won (sort of like when one of those paid-to-play teams wins, and those that bought the players feel elated by their personal victory); consequently, those that didn't blindly vote, several times, for Mr. Obama, should now "Live with it!" I'm ready; here's some of what I know I'll have to live with for the next four years.
There's the Obama appointed and supported Secretary of State, whom is unwilling or unable to (even with help from Obama's hand-picked head of the CIA) reasonably manage the diplomatic corps, as was recently and vividly illustrated by the preventable, but deadly and disgraceful, debacle in Libya.
Obama's appointed and supported guy in charge of the Justice Department will likely continue activities such as giving automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels, while supporting their destructive efforts to smuggle drugs and illegal immigrants into the U.S.
The President's hand-picked, Home Security czar will remain in charge of the inefficient, bloated, and ineffective organization charged with keeping us safe from terrorism.
And our newly re-elected Chief Executive will apparently go on listening to economic advice from those he appointed, but whom have done little or nothing to avoid our slide into national bankruptcy.
I am mentally prepared to accept earnings of next to nothing on investments I made, so that I could retire without depending on government handouts; and I expect that what little I do thus earn will be taxed at higher and higher rates, because those that invest in, and thus possibly profit from, private business are clearly evil, and need to be taxed more than others (especially those that live on money taken from others).
I am conditioned to live with inflation that rises continually, largely through careless management of vital resources, such as energy sources and food crops, while my net income decreases at about the same rate, because of taxes and low interest rates.
I also am prepared to accept that America's standing in the World community will continue to fall, as a barely educated (Harvard Law!), inexperienced, misdirected, personally ambitious "emperor" continues to demonstrate that he has no grasp whatsoever of how to handle foreign relations in a manner beneficial to the United States. It's either that, or else our President just doesn't give a hoot about what happens to the nation.
And I am ready to watch the First Lady really show her stripes, as she begins to realize that no matter what she does or says now, it will not affect her stay in the big white house.
The country, of which she was admittedly ashamed until her husband was elected president, will now likely have more than ample opportunity to be ashamed of her as a representative of this nation.
Her past performances (e.g., an inexcusably rude, superior, arrogant demeanor when first meeting Queen Elizabeth; followed soon thereafter by a sickening subservient posture when in the presence of some Islamic cleric) suggest that, now unfettered by political considerations affecting her personal life, she may let us see the angry, reactionary, revolutionary bigot that has been barely controlled for four years.
Yes, I am prepared to "live with it," because short of taking "to the barricades," which seems inevitable in a decade or less, that appears to be the only available option. But I wonder: are the young folks, which so enthusiastically supported Barrack Hussein Obama, similarly ready to lie in the "bed" that they have made?
Most likely they've never given a thought to the real world—to the future of their nation. Someone once wisely wrote something such as: "If you're 20, and aren't an activist liberal Socialist, you have no heart; if you're 50 and aren't a conservative, you have no head!"
