Default Congratulations and Condolences

Congratulations to everyone who supported Obama in this election!

Though Obama was not my choice, the country has spoken and your slight majority have opted to have the "leadership" of the last four years continue.

Congratulations to Putin, Chavez, Castro and Ahmadinejad. Your endorsements and support meant a lot to the President. He will be getting back to you now that he has that flexibility he was expecting.

Congratulations to the African-American voters, your 90+ percent support of Obama hasn't stopped your recent increase in unemployment from 13.4 to 14.3 percent, but you stayed true. Black women, of course, took most of the recent hit, with your unemployment rates rising from 10.9 to 12.4 percent, but you have his back and street cred.

Congratulations to the large banks and investment firms and a special congratulations to Goldman Sachs. Your continued support for Obama means we are looking for more quantitative easing and a weakened dollar. You will do extra fine, even if most everyone else doesn't. Power to the .001 percenters!

Congratulations to the unions, especially SEIU and AFL-CIO. Your support may mean there are fewer jobs to be had, but you still have the hope that more of those will go union if you can get card check in place. You spent hundreds of millions to keep your guy in the White House, so I am sure Obama will keep the welcome mat out and the Lincoln bedroom tidy for your overnights, even if now more formerly union jobs will flow to China. The service economy rules!

Speaking of which, congratulations to China, too. You will now get more of our off-shored manufacturing. And the world's oil. And the world's... Well, you get the picture.

Congratulations to the "green" energy companies, both bankrupt and those soon to be bankrupt. While coal and oil and natural gas are going to be much more regulated, to the point of being forced out of business, you will get free taxpayer dollars to build products that no one will buy without government subsidies. Keep your fingers crossed that you get yours before the money runs out.

Congratulations to everyone who wanted free birth control, you will have the $10 a month it now costs you covered. Of course, you will have to deal with economic malaise but that is a small price to pay for a cheap freebie.

Congratulations to the illegals who are here now and are going to be here real soon now. You will be greeted with college educations and medical care that someone else will pay for. You don't even have to speak English, ever, or become Americanized - feel free to keep up your lifestyle just like you lived it in the dictatorship or impoverished state-run economy that you came from. Mi cerveza es la cerveza, amigos!

A big congratulations to the professional political class and the lawyers (pretty much the same, 1%ers all,) you will continue to have tons of other people's money to spend on yourself and a little bit for those that kept you in office. If the money appears to be running short, just print some more and don't forget who your friends are.

I want to offer myself a big congratulations, too! Though I detest Obama and the welfare state that America is developing into, I can say that I am going to make a pile of money now. I was heading into semi-retirement a couple of years ago but moved to Europe to make money off the distressed businesses there and recently moved back to the US after seeing the writing on the wall here. I really, truly did not want to see happen here what I saw in Japan and in Europe, but I make a very good living in keeping companies going under the pressures of onerous government policies. My income will likely double next year - great for me, hope that the tax and regulatory burdens you will now face work out as well for you.

Condolences to everyone in the military, your role will continue to be diminished as our Nobel Peace Prize winning prez does not believe that large scale wars require ships or armor divisions or air squadrons. A few special operators and drones will keep the world safe.

Condolences to Americans serving in hostile environments like Benghazi. If there are budget cuts to be had they will be in the security forces that have kept you safe.

Condolences to small business owners, farmers and anyone who works hard at making a living. As of January, 2013, you can now look forward to the largest tax increase in American history. The next four years will truly be a marvel as the government demands more of your money to pay benefits to those who don't work and won't work. Look on the bright side, you can now keep your unemployed 26 year old kid on your much more expensive health insurance policy.

Condolences to Israel, and likely everyone who lives in the Middle East. You are on your own, guys. Good luck in taking down the Iranians before they nuke you. We will be standing right behind you, way behind you, to see how you do.

Condolences to Europe, too. You think the social welfare states you are living in are bad off now, wait until you see how a weak dollar makes your businesses lose market share and how that 12 percent average unemployment rate continues to edge upward. Spain, Greece, our weak dollar isn't going to tempt us to spend any vacation time visiting you any time soon, good luck with dealing with your own lost generations of unemployed and immigrants. Oh, and thanks for overwhelmingly supporting Obama for a second term so that he can do here what you did to yourselves there.

Condolences to anyone who thought the US was an ally. Those were the good old days, buddies. You might as well start looking out for yourselves real soon now, cause if you aren't a theocratic Muslim country, you are SOL.

I could go on, but with the next four more years the same as the last four years, we are in for some interesting times indeed!

Enjoy!

Bullshit! All the stuff he listed began under Obama. Not a single job was sent to China before we put a Muslim in the white House.

Throughout this cycle, you were consistently one of the most dishonest propagandists on this board.

I hope you enjoy your lies and distortions being repudiated by the American people. Because they have.

Didn't Pjabber predict a Romney landslide? That's all we need to know about Pjabber.

The rest is all TLDR.

Obama's won the popular vote over the last two elecions by a combined 12.5M votes and counting.

Small majority? Keep hoping, keep praying.

Sure you can.

EDIT: Wait a minute. Don't tell me you think "American history" started before 1945?

Hahaha, love it! You're a pretentious little man-child, PJABBER, and I truly enjoyed reading your sad little whine.

That's like 6x as many people as who watch foxnews every night.

And they are such little arrogant delusional pusbags as to call themselves "Real America".

They are a far right cult of idiots. Useless except to be played/manipulated by the establishment like the easily led fools they are with the sense of self interest of a emo lemming.

I actually split a bottle of a 2005 Domaine Carneros Le Reve Blanc de Blancs last night with my wife. She was mortified that Obama got another term and that our friend Ken Timmerman lost locally.

Had to console her with the projection that our income would double next year based on the expected increase in projects with US and state government policy induced distress.

She wasn't happy, but one can't have everything...

I am looking forward to a very interesting and challenging period in the US now, but the global opportunities could be even greater as Obama and the Democrats move ever more toward the European model and those effects percolate beyond our borders.

We could only be so lucky. Conservatism has nothing to show after all these years. Only the insane or stupid repeat mistakes. Personally, I like real world results and action.

But then as I said before, conservatism is a religious cult, not a political movement.

Failure just shows that the conservatives were not "faithful" enough to the religion. Right?

Morons.
