http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/11/the_mass_firings_begin.html Obama was “fired up” and so were the voters, and so now, the mass firings begin. Here’s a collection of today’s headlines. Please say a prayer for the families who will be suffering. Had Romney won, many of these companies would now be hiring.

CAROLINE GLICK IS NOW TAKING A LEAVE OF ABSENCE UNTIL THE SPRING IN ORDER TO COMPLETE A BOOK….RSK
Mitt Romney wasn’t a bad candidate. He ran a fairly strong race. He made a few errors. And he made many good moves.
Certainly he was adequate. And he was probably the strongest Republican candidate among the primary field of contenders. That is, he was the best man available to run against Barack Obama.
And he did a pretty good job.
Obama, on the other hand, was a horrible candidate. He was mean and vindictive. He was contemptuous and superficial. He ran on irrelevancies like abortion and a fictitious Republican war against women. He didn’t give his supporters any reason to feel good about themselves.
Instead, he used class warfare to stir them to hatred of their countrymen.
Yet Obama won. And Romney lost.
In retrospect it is possible that the race was over before it began. A strong case can be made that Obama secured his reelection in 2009 when he bailed out the US auto industry and so temporarily stanched the hemorrhage of jobs in Ohio and Michigan. And maybe, with the youth of the 1960s now the Medicare recipients of the 2010s and ’20s, there are simply too many Americans dependent on government handouts to care about what happens in the future.
http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/333049 Next to the American people themselves, Israel is no doubt the biggest immediate loser in the U.S. presidential election. President Obama’s foreign policy is predicated on the false notion that the U.S. and Israel themselves are the principal causes of the Islamic world’s antipathy toward them. Consequently, Obama has cultivated the anti-American, genocidally anti-Jewish [...]
I went to a meeting Wednesday of Jewish grandees. I was horrified to hear them blame Prime Minister Netanayhu for the total collapse of Amerca/Israel relations.
Long before Netanyahu was Prime Minister, President Obama embraced the anti Israel and pro Arab Moslem agenda of his radical friends- Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi, Rev. Wright and a host of other radical friends and cohorts.
In 2003 when Obama dined and wined with Said and Kahlidi, his anti Israel bias was already ingrained and the Prime Minister was Ariel Sharon. The fact is that Mr. Obama does not like Israel regardless of who would be Prime Minister, and, as evidenced by the loud booing at Israel during the Democratic Convention, neither does the party.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/11/08/State-Department-Games-The-Benghazi-Debacle The cover-up of what really happened in Benghazi continues: the State Department, responding to requests from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to release documents pertaining to the debacle, will make those records available for review only this Thursday and Friday. The problem is that most of the Senators are not in Washington and won’t [...]
What Have They Done to James Bond?
‘Skyfall’ gives us a kinder, gentler 007. Please, don’t shake or stir his beer.
James Bond, of all people, has turned metrosexual. “Skyfall,” the 23rd movie in the genre—directed by Sam Mendes and opening in theaters Friday—has somehow turned the all-encompassing man’s man into a kinder, gentler Bond.
There are still the casual killings and car chases, of course, but Bond has been shorn of that subtly menacing blend of sadism and political incorrectness that set him apart from Jason Bourne, Ethan Hunt and all the other identikit espionage heroes. By making Bond less personally dangerous, and even hinting at a bisexual past, the guardians of his brand are undermining precisely what has made that brand so special. This is all the more astonishing since the first 22 Bond films cost $1.55 billion to make but made $10.41 billion at the box office.

The total is 18 if you include Theodore Roosevelt and Harry Truman, who were elected only once but had served nearly four years of a predecessor’s term. Mr. Obama would be well advised to consider the history of these second [...]
http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/11/08/republicans-slow-down-the-blame-game/ In yesterday’s “Bleary Eyes” post, I wondered whether evangelicals failed to turn out for Mitt Romney on Tuesday. The answer is no. My fellow evangelicals turned out and voted for him. His being a Mormon did not cost him a significant number of our votes. Allahpundit’s got the numbers. So evangelicals turned out and [...]

The retailer’s price already had fallen by a third since March; a month later, Staples announced a 15% cut in its floor space and 3,200 layoffs. I don’t mean [...]
