Thoughts on the Obama re-election. Who are the Real Winners?


The victory and re-election of Barack Obama raises the question:  Who are the real winners in the 2012 Presidential election?

Here’s my assessment.

1.  If you believe that a person who gives approximately $4 million dollars to charities in one year is too greedy to be President of the United States, you are an Obama winner.

2.  If you believe that how you cast your vote for President is a good way to seek revenge on people you do not like, you are an Obama winner.

3.  If you believe that free contraceptives for college girls is a civil rights issue, you are an Obama winner.

4.  If you believe that having nearly 50% of the American public pay no federal income taxes is indicative of “paying your fair share” you are an Obama winner.

5.  If you believe that good government and successful foreign policy includes covering up the facts behind the murder of four Americans overseas, including a United States Ambassador, you are an Obama winner.

6.  If you believe that a good example of being non-partisan involves continuously demonizing your election opponents, you are an Obama winner.

7.  If you believe that having nearly 50% of the American people receive some form of wealth transfer from the federal government is a good, long-term path to prosperity, you are an Obama winner.

8.  If you believe that continual monthly increases in the number of Americans who cannot find work constitutes an economic recovery, you are an Obama winner.

9.  If you believe that increasing government borrowing and spending beyond the limits of what can be re-paid without severe consequences is a good, long-term path to prosperity, you are an Obama winner.

10.  If you believe that reducing  a 7% annual spending increase on any particular federal program to a 6% annual spending increase constitutes a dramatic and dangerous cut in spending, you are an Obama winner.

I could go on and on with this but I think you will get the point.  Well, maybe the FMI voters will not get the point but there’s nothing I can do about that.
