Obama Wins: Pirate Wrap Up

Congratulations to our new DeID*, as Ace of Spades has taken to calling Obama. But, buck up, little campers. Life will go on. Obama will only be able to screw so much up. With every pink cloud there is a platinum lining.

Remember, the finally tally is around 62 million to 55 million. That is not bad for a candidate that none of the conservatives wanted in the first place, who pushed many non-conservative ideals, with an almost rudderless campaign, in a year that was expected to be massively Democrat. Without SarahCuda, how bad might it have been?

What happens next? Here are my expectations for the first 2 quarters of the year

  1. Congress repeals the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts in total by, at the latest, mid-March, to take effect in 2010. They may give a slightly better tax rate for those in the bottom 2 brackets, below the $32k level. I really expect this to happen by mid -Feb. Dear Leader then signs the Bill, saying it is the will of the people. The media is strangely silent on his campaign promise about tax cuts for 95% of the people.
  2. The Fairness Doctrine is passed by April. Watch the lawsuits fly.
  3. Congress passes a resolution forcing the “redeployment” of all troops out of Iraq immediately. Obama says “OK,” throwing another campaign monicker out the window.
  4. The stock market stays down.
  5. The $500 and $1,000 checks promise never makes it out of committee. If Barry thinks he will have any control or sway over Queen Nancy or Dingy Harry, he is sorely mistaken.
  6. Energy prices start spiking again. A windfall profits tax is instituted. Prices go up more.
  7. Some sort of global warming legislation is passed. Energy prices spike more.
  8. Expect a Bill allowing the telecoms to be sued over the “domestic wiretapping” to be passed. Expect quality of service and advancement to then be affected, particularly in wireless.
  9. Obama shuts down much of the NSA programs, and to hear from whistleblowers in the small papers, Fox News, and the Washington Times. Papers such as the NY Times, Washington Times, and LA Times will poo poo the whistleblowers.
  10. The Islamist nations that were becoming at least a little bit better, more willing to talk, more willing to fight the extremists backtrack. Obama is tested, either by Syria or Iran, and fails miserably. Voting present will not work.
  11. A true amnesty bill is passed by May, just in time for Cinco de Mayo.
  12. The Leftist agenda of Obama will not appear during the first half of 2009. He will hold off on the thought of trying to appear moderate. But, his small steps, such as pre-pre-school education and changes to the healthcare and insurance industries, combined with the actions of Congress, will have even the most liberal of the MSM reintroducing the Misery Index.

What do you think will happen?

Finally, rather then write virtually the same thing, let’s let Ace say it

So Obama won. It’s not the end of the world. Everybody chill out.

1) It’s hardly a popular vote blowout. McCain kept it close in a tough anti-republican climate, and there’s a still a significant proportion of the population that’s with us, nearly 50%, in fact.

3) It’s important to remember that we’re conservatives, not liberals, or “progressives” or whatever they’re calling themselves this week.

4) Don’t give the fucktards on the left the satisfaction of seeing you all act like a bunch of hysterical schoolgirls. They’re the ones who can’t take defeat. We can take our lumps, get up, and keep fighting. We should be Happy Warriors. whose proper response to this is mockery, good humor, and hard work. We lost and election, but we’re still right, and they’re still wrong.

Anyway, it’s time to cowboy up, and get ready for the next go round.

Exactly. Life goes on. America will go on, no matter what the Democrats try and do. We as Conservatives and the country as a whole have faced tougher times, and, we and the country will survive. If you want to attack Obama, do so, but, do it on the issues. Do not get in to the type of moonbattery that the Left engaged in for 8 years. Don’t make it personal. Have fun.

And get on the butts of the GOP, force them to start fighting back, and, if not be Conservatives, at least be razor edged Republicans, rather then squishy RINO’s.

Michelle Malkin says to gird your loins. Don’t wallow or get pouty faced. I totally agree. I am going to go off to work in a bit, and it will be a day where I will be a bit down, just like when my Giants lost to Baltimore and my Devils lost Colorado. But, I was still in good spirits. Because life happens.

Powerline looks at Obama’s rise to the presidency.

Now, thank God, we can finally talk about something else other then the elections, at least for awhile. So, congratulations, President Obama, you have my backing till you prove otherwise, but, good or bad, you are the President.

    I couldn’t agree more – especially after all the talk in this election of Obama being a “terrorist” or a “Muslim.”

    So, congratulations, President Obama, you have my backing till you prove otherwise, but, good or bad, you are the President.

    Well said, Teach.

  2. Thank you, Silke. People should at least give him a chance. I was a little annoyed by some talk of impeaching him and an impeach obama website I say before the east coast polls had even closed.

  3. Silke says:

    I didn’t realize there are some already calling for him to be impeached. Wow!

    I really do hope people give Obama a chance. I like what he said in his speech last night:

    Let’s remember that it was a man from this state who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House, a party founded on the values of self-reliance and individual liberty and national unity. Those are values that we all share. And while the Democratic Party has won a great victory tonight, we do so with a measure of humility and determination to heal the divides that have held back our progress. As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours, we are not enemies but friends. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.


  4. Pretty sad on the impeachment thing, eh? I tried to read their reasoning, and was not impressed: http://www.obamaimpeachment.org/

    The sentiment of “Let’s give him a chance” and “Until he screws up he IS the president”, however in line with the patriotic and pragmatic ideals of conservatism, are COMPLETELY out of line with reality. When did the left ever give G.W.B. such a pass? Further, when did the concept of bipartisanship for the sake of the best interests of the country ever evidence itself in the words and deeds of the democrats? Not for the last twenty elections at best.

    I warn true conservatives, following down the road of “me too” which the RINO’s have been treading is the path of destruction. Moderation and the abandonment of conservative ideals is what gave us John McCain, as well as our recent defeat. The aggressor sets the rules in any contest. Eagerly letting the Democrats set the rules by which we are allowed to compete and by which we may present our ideals is folly.

    Socialism and virulent anti-Americanism is now at the helm of our nation and cooperation by conservatives is just that-cooperation with socialism and virulent anti-Americanism.

    Appeasement is appeasement by any other name. A “spirit of cooperation” means only one thing to the Pelosi/Reid/Obama junta when it is coming from the Republican party or the conservative movement which it claims to represent: Weakness.

    It is the conservative reasoning that our ‘adversaries’ operate on the same principles we do. They don’t. We continually fail to understand it because it doesn’t make sense. When you seem faced with an impossibility or a contradiction remember one of the precepts of critical thinking: There are no impossibilities only a mistaken PREMISE.

    Whatever the mindless sheeple of the Left think they voted for, be it justice, equality, or a free ride, the leaders KNOW their ultimate goal is the end of American exceptionalism, the implementation of a paternal state of tyranny on the rights and individuality of Americans, and the eternal power of the failed Marxist ideologies of the past.

    Our goal cannot be cooperation and bipartisanship, not if we hope for any success. Cooperation is acquiescence, and expecting ANYTHING from the leftist cabal now in power except further erosion of our nation is delusional.

    • I definately understand where you are coming from. We should give him some support till he screws up, to show that we are better then the Left, and not moonbats. He will surely give us reason to go after him on policy by Jan 21.

    You’re only going to support him until he screws up? Of course he’s going to make mistakes. He’s human. President Bush has certainly made his fair share. I can understand not supporting someone after they have made so many mistakes that you have lost confidence in them but to do so in anticipation of them making their first seems disingenuous given your earlier comment.

    …to show that we are better then the Left, and not moonbats

    Shouldn’t you do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do – not because you want to look better than someone else?

    As was stated above… when did the left give Bush such a pass? He was on the hot seat from the minute he won the 2000 election (and he did WIN, he wasn’t appointed).

    Barry will get no such pass… he ran on the premise of being experienced and not needing a learning curve if elected, so I’ll be there when he f’s up, just like I was with Bush when he did something I didn’t agree with. I respect the office and unlike the lefties of the last (8) years, I am not going to oppose everything the O-Man does, but when he decides to break some pledge or promise (as I am sure he will with his tax cut/welfare check program, nad make no mistake, it WILL happen)I’ll be there to point it out so that everyone who was snowed by his empty rhetoric will be reminded of their decision to make this guy the leader of the free world.
