The brilliant and talented art work of Ron Bryant
A new day has dawned
This was the most difficult 9 years of campaigning Liberals will ever go through again. The changing dynamics of how elections are won is forever changed by Obama’s strategy. Together with Nate Silver (pollster) and Rodell Mollineau of American Bridge (tracker) calling out right wing lies, most of our research work will be done for us activists. Our job will be to continue to educate and share, but it will never ever be as difficult as the last 9 years of trying to track the lies and convince people they are following the liars.
The only way to show themselves in a favorable light to voters is to work in the community (as Obama did), volunteer and help the Jane and John Doe’s in this nation. The right wing cannot do that because it goes against their Ayn Rand philosophy of “greed is good” and “you’re on your own.” They don’t care about 90% of the population, the poor, people of color, the middle class, students, women and their bodies, seniors, workers, unions, and veterans. As Romney said, “I don’t worry about the 47%.” Their entire platform and agenda on the campaign stump told us this.
They cannot pretend and they will not recover. They will eventually ignore their “angry old white men” base who are locked and loaded and filled with hate and fear. These men will figure out they were used when the right wing ignores them because there’s no money in it for them. This scam of the GOP is going to rapidly crumble before our eyes.
I hope you all take a long time to celebrate this victory and the President’s re-election. By the end of the year, it will start to sink in just how far-reaching this victory is and how it will impact countless areas of your life in wonderful ways.
This is just the beginning…
