And it has just ended with the re-election of Obama.
And wherever atheism, socialism and islamism rule - whether in the Kremlin or in Cairo and Tehran or in Beijing... OR on the Upper West Side of Manhattan - they are rejoicing.
Here are the events which allowed it to happen:
1 - The John Roberts Reversal on Obamacare - and the ensuing papering-over of the fact that it raises taxes while raiding Medicare and failing to cover everyone and failing to contain costs.
2 - Amnesty for illegal immigrants via executive order - pandering to Latinos worked despite the fact that for four years Obama ignored them.
3 - Bernanke's "Quantitative Easing" - which sent the stock market up quickly giving the illusion of economic strength - while lighting the fuse of an impending inflation explosion.
4 - The false unemployment numbers in September and October which showed a Potemkin labor market improvement.
5 - Class Warfare - the Bain attacks and tax return attacks against Romney and the attacks against "the 1%" worked.
6 - The legacy media's outrageous cover-ups for Obama especially of Benghazi - (and Fast & Furious - and also Rezko and the Chicago Machine, Obama's deep leftist ties with Davis, Wright & Ayers, and covering up the fact that Obama is not truly an African-American but a Kenyan American with no ties to the Civil Rights Movement... and so on).
7 - Hurricane Sandy and the seeming reversal of Governor Christie - which at first stalled Romney's surge and then turned Obama's photo-ops into stature-raising events.
As a result we will get another recession and:
(a) a more leftist and tyrannical SCOTUS,
(b) another downgrade on our spiraling debt - and spiraling out-of-control inflation,
(c) sequestration and massive defense cuts - allowing
(d) Chinese, Russian, Iranian and Muslim Brotherhood hegemony to expand at the expense of our allies in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Israel and Europe.Only a takeover of the US Senate in 2014 can slow this - and only if it's then followed by impeachment can it stop this.
To accomplish this, the right needs an approach and a leader that's more appealing to urbanites and blue collar workers.
That's Rubio, Jindal, Kasich, and Walker for now.
