Quotes of the day

“He doesn’t have to play to get reelected anymore, which is huge,” said Chicago supporter Jim Slama, who first met Obama in 2001. “It frees him to be who he is.”…

“I’m hopeful,” said Slama. “He’ll try to play to the middle, but he’s got the Tea Party to deal with, and he can take out his baseball bat and wail away and he won’t have to worry about the implications of reelection.”

“Millions of American evangelicals are absolutely shocked by not just the presidential election, but by the entire avalanche of results that came in,” R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Louisville, Ky., said in an interview. “It’s not that our message — we think abortion is wrong, we think same-sex marriage is wrong — didn’t get out. It did get out.

“It’s that the entire moral landscape has changed,” he said. “An increasingly secularized America understands our positions, and has rejected them.”…

The evangelical share of the population is both declining and graying, studies show. Large churches like the Southern Baptist Convention and the Assemblies of God, which have provided an organizing base for the Christian right, are losing members.

“In the long run, this means that the Republican constituency is going to be shrinking on the religious end as well as the ethnic end,” said James L. Guth, a professor of political science at Furman University in Greenville, S.C.

***

This year Democrats’ arguments on values were heard. This was a “values” election as strident as the ones from culture wars past in which Christians marched against subsidies for Mapplethorpe, creationists vied for seats on Kansas school boards, and William Bennett demanded to know where the outrage was. What was different about this year’s culture war is that Republicans lost it

Obama has made a lot of mistakes, but running the country as a business is not one of them. Like Bush before him, he is always stressing how America is the only place where membership in the nation derives not from race, ethnicity, or religion but from belief in an idea.

The bright side of that vision is a beautiful thing, but there is a dark side to it, too. If America is an idea, you can belong to it regardless of your ethnic background. But you cannot belong to it regardless of your beliefs. A tendency to lecture the American public on what they are supposed to believe has become a constant in the president’s oratory. “That’s who we are,” he said in his victory speech on Tuesday. He was talking about the need to help an 8-year-old girl with leukemia, a fairly uncontroversial proposition. But he uses this trope even when talking about the tiniest velleities, usually expanding it to “that’s not who we are as a people.” If there is one disturbing truth that Obama has always understood, it is that a winning American campaign is always about values, is never lukewarm, and is generally a bit scary-looking to foreigners and losers.

***

In my own state, where the Democrats ran the board on election night, the “Live Free or Die” license plates look very nice when you see them all lined up in the parking lot of the Social Security office. But, in their view of the state and its largesse, there’s nothing very exceptional about Americans, except that they’re the last to get with the program. Barack Obama ran well to the left of Bill Clinton and John Kerry, and has been rewarded for it both by his party’s victory and by the reflex urgings of the usual GOP experts that the Republican party needs to “moderate” its brand.

I have no interest in the traditional straw clutching — oh, it was the weak candidate . . . hard to knock off an incumbent . . . next time we’ll have a better GOTV operation in Colorado . . . I’m always struck, if one chances to be with a GOP insider when a new poll rolls off the wire, that their first reaction is to query whether it’s of “likely” voters or merely “registered” voters. As the consultant class knows, registered voters skew more Democrat than likely voters, and polls of “all adults” skew more Democrat still. Hence the preoccupation with turnout models. In other words, if America had compulsory voting as Australia does, the Republicans would lose every time. In Oz, there’s no turnout model, because everyone turns out. The turnout-model obsession is an implicit acknowledgment of an awkward truth — that, outside the voting booth, the default setting of American society is ever more liberal and statist.

***

In future, our elections will be like those in Britain or New York. We will be presented with a choice between a statist liberal and an out-there uber-liberal. And with the uber-liberal enjoying the full backing of the media and Hollywood, it’ll by no means be an easy win for the ordinary Mike Bloomberg or David Cameron-style liberal, who will be portrayed as a heartless plutocrat if he happens to come from money, or as a hopeless rube if he happens to come from nowhere…

The school choice movement will be killed off as “draining resources from public education,” which really means it harms a core Democratic interest group, the teachers’ unions. The simple matter of requiring voters to supply I.D. will be forbidden, not because it doesn’t make sense, the voters don’t want it or because it’s unconstitutional, but because it harms Democratic party interests. The two parties will fall all over each other in their efforts to mollify illegal immigrants. The new health-care entitlement will become increasingly onerous and costly, with all discussion limited to how best to “save” it, until one day employers’ efforts to work around it cause a frustrated government to convert it to a full-on single-payer Socialist scheme.

I didn’t expect this would ever happen to my country, and certainly not so fast, but we are now a decadent European social welfare state, sure to be accompanied by European levels of economic stagnation, taxation, welfare rolls, unemployment and perpetually misallocated resources such as subsidies to favored companies. Military irrelevance will soon follow as the staggering costs of the cradle-to-grave socialist state grow exponentially. Iran will soon have nuclear capability, to be followed in short order by its Middle Eastern neighbors, folllowed shortly by widespread proliferation of nuclear arms to terrorist groups.

***

If we are to lose America as it has been, could we not ask that it be lost to something better than this? Our president, a Narcissus masquerading as a Demosthenes, makes big speeches packed full of little ideas, and he is applauded wildly for it. His, says Marco Rubio, “are tired and old big-government ideas. Ideas that people come to America to get away from. Ideas that threaten to make America more like the rest of the world, instead of helping the world become more like America.” I will vouch for the verity of these words. I have watched how these sorry ideas play out in the real world, and it is not pretty: They make people’s lives worse, and yet simultaneously convince them that any reform will kill them — a fatal combination. Americans should avoid this path sedulously, for that way lies decline…

And yet, he has now won twice. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, to elect such a man once may be regarded as a misfortune, but to elect him twice looks like carelessness. (Or, rather, criminal negligence.) This year, certainly, was not the perfect storm of 2008. Then, novelty and redemption played a role; this time, an insipid bore ran on an openly statist platform and won the day in a country that is supposed to be “center right.” Maybe it no longer is. In 1980, when faced with a set of policies that demonstrably hadn’t worked and a president who wanted to take America leftward, America chose a different path; in 2012, it doubled down. That says a lot about a people. The central problem, then, is not that Obama will be president for the next few years, but that the American people — knowing him — chose to reelect him. Even if this is put down to a failure of Romney’s turnout operation or Hurricane Sandy or Obama’s brilliant targeting, it does not say much for their commitment to classical liberalism that a significant group of Americans stayed away from the fight because they didn’t like Mitt Romney. That this was not a clear-cut repudiation of the president should sound the alarm.

***

Obama is taking us toward the European way at very the moment that model is collapsing. This may mean total decline, but it may also mean a painful process of cultural reconstitution.

The West was already headed for demographic-economic Armageddon. Even a Romney victory wouldn’t have changed that. The real test will be what happens when the crisis truly hits, sometime in the next decade. Fighting for conservative/classically-liberal solutions until that moment will make all the difference in how America weathers the storm. The Western welfare state as currently constituted cannot survive. It will shortly move from inevitable to impossible.

***

Thinking about the present day, if conservatives are right and what Walter Russell Mead has called the “blue state model” is indeed collapsing, then the GOP might not be that far away from another moment. At the least, the fact that it did not come in 2012 does not mean it is not coming.

And conservatives should be ready for it. For starters, they should ignore the triumphalists on the left espousing a permanent shift leftward. Nonsense! Yes, conservatives must do a better job of reaching out to Hispanics, but some perspective is necessary. The incumbent president is set to take in millions of fewer votes than he won in 2008. He limped across the finish line by dint of vicious demagoguery, which lowered turnout among white voters who have voted Republican in the past. Put simply, the GOP is still very much in this ballgame.

***

Now we need a majority in Congress to listen – and they should start by making sure taxes don’t go up on the 98% of Americans making under $250,000 a year starting January 1. This is something we all agree on. Even as we negotiate a broader deficit reduction package, Congress should extend middle-class tax cuts right now. It’s a step that would give millions of families and 97% of small businesses the peace of mind that will lead to new jobs and faster growth. There’s no reason to wait.

We know there will be differences and disagreements in the months to come. That’s part of what makes our political system work. But on Tuesday, you said loud and clear that you won’t tolerate dysfunction, or politicians who see compromise as a dirty word.

HotAir, a place for conservatives to gather, scrutinize poll sample groups, and casually advocate the m*rder of your political opponents after the American people voted for them over you.

obama is stupid to lie so much about taxing the wealthy (unless he’s talking about a significant wealth tax…and maybe that’s what he’ll roll out…5 percent above 5M dollars…and maybe 20 percent for mr. buffet)

I think you are wrong about the timeline.

BoxHead1 on November 10, 2012 at 9:43 PM

Unless I am lucky (only at guessing), you are right, you can see the fiscal cliff coming, but the speed and actual edge seem to always be shifting. I knew the housing bubble was a bubble. I contemplated buying and rolling over a house back in 2004, but figured it had played out by then. Boy was I wrong on the timing… but not the final analysis.

I have been wondering how long the FED and the government can keep wall street numbers above 10,000. Here again, I know the final outcome, the stock market is way over priced compared to what future earnings can possibly be used to calculate it with, at some point, the stock market will have to decline sub 10,000 on the DOW. I am guessing today that it will be sometime around June/July when the teachers go on their annual vacations and the target number is 7200+/-200 points.

I also know the final outcome of the entitlement programs, but not the date certain or the total damage done. I do know what they mean for us today. Even with a miracle worker like Romney, short of a world changing technological advancement, we are stuck with sub 3% growth until they finally do their dirty work. 3% is not enough to grow us out of our deficit spending at this point. It will not even be enough to keep up with the increase in debt interest payments.

I am kind of glad I own land in Texas right now. I am kind of unhappy that I was not able to acquire work in the state. I pretty much know that America is not going to remain 50 or 51 states for Much longer. I hope Texas is willing to remember that I joined the Marines from Dallas and it is my home, I’d rather not be stuck living in liberalville after the fall. The one thing I think Texas needs to be doing is building up some nuclear power plants. On the scale needed to provide enough water to west Texas to grow food.

How soon before King Obama signs an EO stating it’s now illegal lay your employees off?

JPeterman on November 10, 2012 at 9:51 PM

Shirley you jest?
But I think not……

A friend who is in PEO management tells me the Commies and their DOL brown shirts are working on rules changes to counteract the shift to part time employees as a way to avoid OjobkillerCare– essentially removing part time status exemption for HC – how this will work who knows- but it will meet Maobama’s goal of killing more jobs – but gaining more dependent votes.

The water is warming, my comrade frogs.

This is a rotten thing for America, and also — though it might not realize it — for the world; for, like Anthony Blanche, Evelyn Waugh’s “aesthete par excellence,” should the United States descend into the mire, it will “take something away with it.” If America ceases to be America, it will “[lock] a door and hang the key on a chain.” And then? “All [its] friends, among whom [it] had always been a stranger,” will realize they need it.

They are as Treasonous as the left and just as vindictive! They are the Enemy Within and it’s time to leave them behind! It’s time for the American Conservative Party! Vote for someone else or don’t vote for eSTAB repubs/rinos. They are a Cancer that must be removed from the halls of power! So either vote for a Conservative or a Libertarian. If you vote for a rino/moderate, you vote to be STABBED IN THE BACK, AGAIN!

If nothing is done about the voter fraud in this election, I will probably never vote again.

Because, Ughh, they are DEMOCRATS, they lie, cheat, steal, and they NEVER ADMIT WRONG. It will be someone elses fault, it always is.

Hitler had it right, the only way to really be rid of them is to kill them. The conflict of the next decade will be the capstone of all the conflicts of the 20th century.
I like the quote above about Iran getting a nuke, they want US, the military conservative to either be afraid of that, or to save them from it. Its hard to tell which.

Muslims, Dems, Marxists and Environmentalists are the enemy. You know what needs to be done. Their names and addresses are out there.

wargamer6 on November 10, 2012 at 10:12 PM
Thats why they are sent here. Ban them.
the_nile on November 10, 2012 at 10:13 PM

Ban me? I didn’t advocate killing my political opponents. All I did was call it out and highlight it in hopes that SOMEBODY actually see’s what’s taking place here.

Right…because 1 luny = all the views on HA.
Get real, fool.
wargamer6 on November 10, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Oh but if you guys can find one absolutely uninformed idiot to get on camera and say something like “Obamaphones” and “Obama money”, by god everyone who doesnt vote for you candidate is just out to get free stuff, mooch, and live off the efforts of you, the more productive, more righteous and infallible, manifest destiny conservatives. Right?

Do you see another poster agreeing with that poster?
We can’t delete the post. If we could – it would have been gone.
gophergirl on November 10, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Also only saw one person even remotely call it out as something wrong.

Boomer_Sooner on November 10, 2012 at 10:23 PM

Going Galt.

John Galt didn’t just disappear from the world completely.
In fact, he worked actively to bring about the inevitable collapse of society brought on by the looters.
His goal was to achieve the collapse.

John Galt was never about withdrawing, he was about destroying the corrupt. Dagney Taggart correctly called him The Destroyer.

I’ve been in this mode for about a year.

A friend who is in PEO management tells me the Commies and their DOL brown shirts are working on rules changes to counteract the shift to part time employees as a way to avoid OjobkillerCare– essentially removing part time status exemption for HC – how this will work who knows- but it will meet Maobama’s goal of killing more jobs – but gaining more dependent votes.

You are to be commended, GG! I live in a very red state down south and will be traveling to Maine next week for a work thing. I was laughing with my husband about it…”They are all liberals up there!

Quantitative Easing has been helping to prop up the market.
It seems like kind of a bubble.
It’s also being used to pay some interest on the debt.
When a country is printing money to pay its debt, it’s
the beginning of economic death throes.

Punchenko on November 10, 2012 at 10:21 PM

No, that’s a problem. The guy living the Obama dream is insulated from it’s consequences the most. It’s the weird, mischievous part of this whole thing. We say, “wait till he has to pay his electric bill” — but he’s not paying it now, and he can (rightly) expect the government to adjust what he’s given for the jacked bill. And no student is qualified for what amounts to a mortgage, without even a down payment, and the repayment of it is pretty flexible.

The point being, those people who we are hoping will get it through their own pain are the very people that will get it last, and too late — when the check doesn’t come.

The answer is to build parallel.

^^Insert a bunch of “IMO” and “I think” stuff, again.

We should also work hard to “lower the cost of college” by slashing the hell out of the salaries of the Democrats’ most important constituencies : PROFESSORS AND COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS.

We don’t need any more well-heeled socialists.

Punchenko on November 10, 2012 at 10:13 PM

Academic greed puts students in need!!

the_nile on November 10, 2012 at 10:17 PM

Yes! All of these socialists are well-heeled. They are a well-heeled little aristocracy giving us the bill for their excesses and the erosion of our liberties.

I’m watching Brokaw, Friedman, Rose, Brooks — millionaires all! — preaching to me about how I need a yoke around my neck and that we need more Democrat voters (immigrants) to protect their ill-gotten gains and feudal fiefdoms.

ENOUGH!

Turn the students against the professors and the Progressive High Church of Academia that is fleecing them. Turn the public against the well-heeled propagandist of the MSM and starve them of every last cent.

DEMAND ECONOMIC FREEDOM, INFORMATION FAIRNESS, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, AND THE AMERICAN DREAM.

Defeat the LEFTISTS at their OWN GAME!

We TOTALLY felt this earthquake today in metro Atlanta. It happened around noon today. I was playing race cars with my 5 year old son and the house literally started shaking for about 7 seconds. Also, it was loud! My husband came up from the basement and we were kind of freaked out for a second. We tried to look it up on line but found nothing. So glad to know that we aren’t losing our minds completely!

God damn Roberts.

Schadenfreude on November 10, 2012 at 10:20 PM

Ya know, we could have possibly survived another 4 years of Obama sans Obamacare. It would have been a long slog, but I think we could have. But one man, one man who changed his vote, put the country on the road to ruin. I’m sure he has no remorse as he sees the numbers of companies laying off, not hiring, etc. Families losing their incomes and kids going without. Boomers and the elderly will be deemed too old to be treated, so they’ll die unnecessary deaths. Lives will be ruined and lost because one Supreme’s ego couldn’t withstand the left’s disdain he would receive for actually upholding the Constitution. I hate Obama, that’s a given. But Roberts is right there with him.

TxAnn56 on November 10, 2012 at 10:33 PM

I think I want a bumper sticker that says ” I lost”
But it would be too long if I added you and America.
I don’t see how we will undo what will be done so like others I will prepare and watch it burn.
How long until I can’t take Hot Air?

specialkayel on November 10, 2012 at 9:47 PM

Look I am not espousing anything new. Everything you see, has been done before, documented, written, filmed, replayed over and over.

Only question you really need to find the answer to is this:
How did the the survivors of Hitler, Mussolini, The Spanish Civil War(closest we are to right now I think), the Iron Curtain, the Khmer Rouge…how did they survive?

Cause that what we are going to have to do. And this aint no tv show Walking Dead.

From what I saw, our system quit working years ago, all those people spewing the wait and vote line, that was 4 years wasted on nothing.

So you alls answer now is to wait and vote some more?

So exactly.. how much does Axelrod pay? And when does your contract run out? I’m just wondering. Also, I haven’t seen gummy in a few days so I’m assuming that he’s unemployed now.

BTW, is there a paid troll strategy? Do they trot out the more annoying ones closer to election and then drop them and keep the more sane sounding ones on payroll permanently?

I’m just wondering because the RNC got out-organized, so I’m trying to get a feel of all aspects of Axelrod’s organization.

We should also work hard to “lower the cost of college” …

Oh, because now he is not only going to colleges, and PRIVATE colleges, in person, each of the 4500 colleges in the nation, but he is going to DEMAND that they lower tuition? They don’t have bills to pay, tenured, liberal teachers to pay? I’m sure that idea will go over well with them when their Leader decrees that colleges can only earn X amount of dollars. You want a level playing field for student tuition? Then there will have to be a level PAYING field for the teachers! Unless level playing fields don’t pertain to liberal teachers, only to the eeeevil rich people who dont pay “their fair share”. Who died and made him boss on who can charge what for their products and services? If you don’t like the cost of college tuition at State U, choose a different one!

What an utter ass.

canopfor on November 10, 2012 at 8:53 PM

I just spent the last 15 minutes describing my experience today at the Michigan football game only to delete it because I thought it would sound stupid. Then I read your comment! So here it goes again-

There were over 112,000 people at the game today but during the raising of the flag and national anthem very few people around me were singing. The mood was very somber, you could feel it if that makes sense. When I looked at the flag being raised it took on a whole different meaning. I didn’t feel the pride I usually do-instead sadness. I believe many others in that stadium were having the same feelings. I have been going to these games for years and have never felt the way I did today. It was different. After 9/11 people were sad but at least singing and showed their pride, chanting USA after the anthem.

My point in sharing this with you is: I do not think the majority of Americans have really changed. Sure there is a large portion of society that wants the freebies but not as many as we think. I think the election was stolen, I think we are the majority! I think we have to hold on to hope.

By the way, we had an “election” at the high school I work at. Guess who won- Romney 47/43. Four years ago it was Obama in a landslide. This is a suburban school- but still! If teenagers got disenchanted with Obama I have to believe the adults in their lives did also.
