1. I told a friend of mine he'd be blaming the hurricane for his loss last night.

I will be playing Pokemon Black 2 as I watch the election returns come in and smile as Romney gives his concession speech.

19. Yes, and the larger negative frame of this President will be

that he is LUCKY, and only won his elections because of the financial disaster in 2009 and now because of Sandy

He was going to win either election regardless, polling showed it when these situations broke, it just made/will make his margins greater.

But, they will do what they do, scream their BE relentlessly, the scumbag media whores will channel it unchallenged.

They will find some term, the Obama Reaper or something, and that will be what they will pretty successfully be able to cast him as.

4. As per Pat Robertson Climatology 101, God uses hurricanes to make political statements

 

Therefore, God is personally intervening to defeat Mitt and re-elect Obama.
If that's the excuse the baggers and the fundies want to use, we can easily throw it back in their face.

This one will go down with "Clinton only won because of Perot," "Obama wasn't vetted," "He's a Kenyan" and every other dumb bullshit excuse they cook up to try to act as though conservatism didn't really lose the election, and so they can continue to pretend the Democratic President of the United States isn't really in power.

9. Yep. Republicans think they had momentum (which actually STOPPED 2 weeks ago)

and the magical hurricane stopped it.

But actually, wouldn't religious folks like Mitt Romney consider it an
ACT OF GOD that stopped his campaign.. if they ARE going to blame
the hurricane?

Also, my thought is that Romney will find a way to keep some of those
unspent millions for himself and his family. He is probably going to be
working on how to sneak off with a butt load of cash during these next
few days. The republican party will want it back and it will be a huge
scandal (at least I HOPE it will!!)

12. YUP, but we can always sarcastically say, " It is God's will"

The hurricane was sent to test Obama and he passed.

13. But, but, but --- I thought Sandy was Gawd's punishment for gays, lesbians, trans.

Of did Gawd get confused in his rush to punishment, and unintentionally defeats Rmoney? Hope a televangelist steps up and explains this.

21. Christie may eventually CREDIT Sandy

Chris Christie is gaining a lot of respect for his handling of this crisis. I would never vote for him, but I've heard from several Dems and independents who might consider him an option in 2016.

22. As long as he loses, I don't care. Naturally, he and his followers will have to blame something or

somebody - anything other than themselves.

correct themselves.

25. So he's blaming his loss on the president doing his job?

The fact is that this... "businessman"... couldn't deliver a competing vision that the American people wanted to buy. He can blame whoever he wants but no one made him run for president for 6 years. If he can't figure out how to win by now it's his fault alone and he deserves to lose. All the lies and photo ops in the world couldn't save him from his own sad failings.

Hrmph! :p
