Doom and Gloom

"Please forgive me for having encouraged anyone to believe that there was still hope to save America. We’re obviously doomed beyond all hope of redemption."

"It’s pointless to think that if America reelects the most unqualified disastrous president in recent memory, we should stand our ground and continue fighting."

"The United States is populated by groups of people who may as well be living in different countries. They have separate histories, cultures and visions for the future. They are two distinct nationalities, divided by mutual distrust and joined by mammoth public debt."

"I am 64 and my husband is 69. We were looking forward to retirement. Now all we have to look forward to is death panels. I never thought I’d say this, but I can’t fight anymore. I can’t fight for losing causes, take the pain and fear and most of all the knowledge that all my effort was for nothing."

Reply to paragraph above: "I feel exactly the same. The only difference is our ages. I am young with young children, and what terrifies me most is what their future will be."

"A lot of the telly chatter is about how Republicans don’t get the shifting demographics: America is becoming more of a “brown country,” as Kirsten Powers put it on Fox. But New Hampshire is overwhelmingly white — and the GOP still blew it."

Barack Obama and the Democrats aren't the problem. America is the problem.

ADDED: Flashback to my post on October 28, 2008:
Are you ready for eight years of Obama?  ... 
A vote for Obama is a vote for:
  1. The war against "negative" liberties
  2. A Heavier Tax Burden (for everyone)
  3. Marxism & Socialism
  4. Obama's Unsavory Friends 
  5. Unchecked Beltway Power
  6. Disdain
  7. A Charismatic Demagogue
  8. 143 Days of pre-campaign Senate Experience
  9. A Bonehead (paraphrased from Obama himself)
I'd like to pat myself on the back for my powers of prediction, but it wasn't really so hard to see and I didn't want to be right anyway.

FINALLY: A small dose of positivity for those of you who can swallow it...
My counsel to you tonight: Please, do not be bitter. Do not fall prey to the Beltway blame game. Do not get mired in small things. Do not become vengeful creatures like our political opponents who voted out of spite instead of love of country. 
We still have boundless blessings to count — and to secure.
I remain a proud, unrepentant believer in the American Dream. And I know you do, too. Freedom will endure because we will keep fighting for it. We can’t afford not to, friends.
I just don't know what we're supposed to be fighting for anymore.  Do the people of this country want freedom and the American dream?  Sure, they want all the goodies, but are they prepared for all of the hard work and sacrifices?  I don't think so.
