Protests Erupted at University of Mississippi After President Obama Won Reelection, Campaign Photograph Burned
The Deep South will always be stuck in the dark days in America’s history when blacks were denigrated and treated as less than a human. Well, the University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones has expressed disappointment in the “immature and uncivil approach” taken by some students after President Obama won reelection in last night’s presidential election. I guess after all these years, Ole Miss still gives people a reason to view the school and state negatively.
A statement released by the university Wednesday says some students notified university police that people were gathering near the student union to protest President Barack Obama’s reelection.
Officers arrived to find about 30-40 students in front of the union, which quickly grew to more 400 students within 20 minutes. Source
Funny Ole Miss should be in the news for racial intolerance but they are no stranger to this despicable behavior. Remember James Meredith, who had to be escorted to school because racists didn’t want him there. These are the lunatics Mitt Romney appealed to.
Was ABC’s Diane Sawyer drunk while on air last night during the presidential election? She seemed to slur her speech all through the broadcast and wasn’t quite on top of her game as she was during President Obama’s inauguration. In this video from TMZ, she calls the president “Barack Orama.” THR reports she was “acting so erratically that people thought she’d suffered a stroke.” Seems like Diane Sawyer may have pulled a Sue Simmons!
The Hill (Hillary2016): Hillary Clinton is likely still celebrating the reelection of President Obama, but on Twitter her fans are plotting her election in 2016. — #Hillary2016 was trending across the world on Twitter early Wednesday morning just a few minutes after Mitt Romney delivered his concession speech.
Dick Morris has egg all over his face after predicting a Mitt Romney landslide in the presidential election. Um, did anyone even believe this windbag, who has been so wrong many, many times in the past. He said he underestimated the high levels of black and Hispanic turnout, as well as the effect of Hurricane Sandy. Whatever, dude. Whatever Mr. Toesucker:
I’ve got egg on my face. I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an Obama squeaker.
The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to “normal” levels. Didn’t happen. These high levels of minority and young voter participation are here to stay. And, with them, a permanent reshaping of our nation’s politics.
In 2012, 13% of the vote was cast by blacks. In 04, it was 11%. This year, 10% was Latino. In ’04 it was 8%. This time, 19% was cast by voters under 30 years of age. In ’04 it was 17%. Taken together, these results swelled the ranks of Obama’s three-tiered base by five to six points, accounting fully for his victory.
I derided the media polls for their assumption of what did, in fact happen: That blacks, Latinos, and young people would show up in the same numbers as they had in 2008. I was wrong. They did.
But the more proximate cause of my error was that I did not take full account of the impact of hurricane Sandy and of Governor Chris Christie’s bipartisan march through New Jersey arm in arm with President Obama. Not to mention Christe’s fawning promotion of Obama’s presidential leadership.
It made all the difference. Source
Yeah, tell Rush Limbaugh that Romney landslide he predicted didn’t happen. Sandra Fluke is getting the last laugh. I wonder if Karl Rove and Donald Trump have come up for air yet? All that money Rove, Dick Armey, Sheldon Adelson and the pro-Romney super PACs spent was in vain. LOL.
Macy’s Should Sever Ties with Donald Trump Over Twitter Meltdown Calling for Revolution Due to Obama Reelection
Donald Trump’s Twitter meltdown over President Obama’s reelection is a disgrace. Macy’s should sever ties with him for calling for a revolution to contest an election in which President Obama won the popular vote, 50% to 48% and won in the Electoral College. The U.S. Secret Service should pay him a visit for trying to incite violence against the president in his call for a revolution. He has since deleted that tweet, but we captured it:
Donald Trump’s Twitter Meltdown Storified:
President Obama’s Historic Win Speaks to the Power of Diversity, Which Republicans Shun at Their Peril
The finger-pointing in the Republican Party has started and it’s about to hit a fever pitch with President Obama’s shellacking of Mitt Romney at the polls. Let me reiterate, President Obama won 303 Electoral College votes to Mitt Romney’s 206. The president also edged out Romney in the popular vote — 50% to 48%. The message the Republican Party should take from this is that it’s time to kick the lunatics out of the party and stop allowing people like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter (who, by the way, accurately predicted Mitt Romney would lose), Donald Trump, John Sununu, Joe Arpaio, Bryan Fischer and other right wing extremists, to set the tone for their discourse. Mitt Romney allowed himself to be mired in the Republican race-baiting and extremism. In a word, positive is the new black. The beginning of a new era. Mr. Obama’s success speaks to the need for cooperation in Washington D.C. Trump tweeted that the “world is laughing at us.” Um, not really. It’s laughing at people like him for his idiocy. To put it succinctly, the Republican Party is too old, too white, too male and too extremist. Mitt Romney’s 1950s persona was a joke to the younger and more diverse American voters. The Republican Party is in dire straits.
Blacks and Latinos, with 95% and 73% margins, showed that what the Republican leaders in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, meant for bad, in terms of voter suppression, failed miserably. Nobody who wants to commit voter fraud stands in line for five or seven hours. So, the Republicans’ trick backfired and I hope the lesson that will be learned is glaring. Mitt Romney, who built his career on data, didn’t rely on that in this election, but on fomenting racial tensions, while Obama, who won on raw emotions in 2008, won with strong data in 2012. Latinos had some issues with President Obama, but they were terrified of Mitt Romney and his immigration stance (self-deportation) and embracing the controversial illegal immigration legislation passed in Arizona by Gov. Jan Brewer, for example. He also embraced Kris Kobach, who helped draft the controversial immigration legislation. The Republicans blocked every effort President Obama made to pass immigration reform, ultimately issuing an executive order to halt the deportation of young adults brought to this country by their parents when they were young. Call George W. Bush what ever you want, he recognized the importance of diversity. He won 44 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2004. Four years later, John McCain took 31 percent of Hispanics. This year, Mitt Romney took only 27 percent.
Social issues can no longer be ignored by the Republican Party in exchange for self-righteousness. Paul Ryan promised the end of the Western world, in terms of Judeo-Christian values if President Obama won. Um, really? This was a desperate and disgraceful attack on the president and an insult to all Americans. More in keeping with the birther theme that he’s a foreigner. The Mitt Romney who stood alone on the stage and delivered his concession speech was wonderful and if that was the Mitt Romney who ran for the presidency, the result could have been different. He took the high road and the Republican Party should learn from this and change its ways.
Republicans like Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Charles Krauthammer and websites like The Drudge Report and Breitbart dismissed the polls as false and denigrated Nate Silver, who was dead-on in his prediction that President Obama would win by big numbers. Intrade also bet that the president had a 70 percent chance of winning the election. Matt Drudge and Michelle Malkin led the charge on the Internet painting President Obama as a foreigner, who was hellbent on destroying this country. Really? Wrong. The Republican Party destroyed this country and its brand by coddling wingnuts like them.
Mitt Romney isn’t without blame in the mess. He was nothing more than an out-of-touch plutocrat, who cared nothing about the least among us. How else can you explain his comment that 47 percent of Americans are deadbeats? He owned the decision to pick Paul Ryan as his running mate, saying that was one of the best decisions he made, next to marrying his wife. Um, Paul Ryan was a card-carrying member of a highly unpopular Congress. He was a part of the problem in the Washington gridlock. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comment was repudiated, but Richard Mourdouck’s “pregnancy from rape is from God” comment was embraced. Let’s not forget Ron Paul’s honest rape comment. These three lunatics should never have had a place in the party, much less to run for higher office. Let’s not forget some of Mitt Romney’s lines: “some of my best friends own NASCAR teams,”"corporations are people” and that $10,000 wager he tried to make with Texas Gov. Rick Perry during a Republican presidential debate.
The problem is Mitt Romney’s campaign was about nothing that made a calculated risk to pander to the lunatics and extremists in the Republican Party. The outcome was decisive and the shellacking was deserved. All the dark money and Super PAC money that was meant to trick voters into distancing themselves from Obama for no other reason but hate, backfired. Sheldon Adelson and Karl Rove were the big funders of the negative ads and the millions they spent could have been better spent helping the poor in this country. But, they would rather foment hate and coddle nuts like Donald Trump with his birtherism nonsense. Problem-solving and bipartisanship should be embraced, not shunned. It’s a new day for America and the electorate has spoken. Good morning Mr. President.
