"Utterly Astounded"

An anonymous author gives us his (or her) reaction to the 2012 presidential election, which pretty well sums up the mood of many of us on the right, myself included.  The results certainly didn't turn out as we expected.  From Radio Patriot via Political Pistachio, here's an except:
We were offered the clearest choice we’ve had since 1980, where we had malaise and a misery index on one hand and a shining city on a hill on the other. Back then, we chose the city on the hill. This time the choice was between a man who says 7.9% unemployment and $4.00 gas is the new normal and a guy whose entire career has been about fixing broken entities. 
We chose to stay broken. And Broke.
The entire piece can be found at either link above.  The 2012 results have reminded me of a metaphor a read before the election.  It surely seems that we have backed up the Titanic and rammed the iceberg a second time.


  1. It's discouraging for sure. I always think there is a reason for everything. I can't figure it out on this- the election- but there is a reason.

  2. And now the idiots are bitching about their paychecks. It will get louder, but they have nobody to blame but themselves.
