Call Off The Election: #OccupyResoluteDesk Has Another Five Years

This is a relief, as I’ve become somewhat stressed out trying to figure out which Ruling Class tool will continue the irresistible, cancerous onslaught of government growth going down the road.

President Obama declared Monday that his presidency “is not over” and that he’ll be occupying the White House for another five years.
In an interview with Univision, a seemingly confident Obama said he’ll have more time to work on hot-button issues like immigration in his next term.
“Well, first of all … my presidency is not over,” Obama, who just a few months ago described himself as an underdog in the presidential race, said in a telephone interview.
“I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done,” he said.

In a way, David Gergen was quite understandable on CNN’s post-debate talking head show last night. Gergen made the Progressive observation that the candidates were being pulled rightward to appeal to the base, and that all that happy conservative noise would go away once the next President is sworn in.

Which is why the candidate is almost unimportant. What matters is the will and engagement of the people. The Ruling Class overlords, like Parliament of the mid-1700s, isn’t taking us too seriously. They seem to think that, faced with the pain of coming down off of our debt buzz, we’ll beg for the velvet handcuffs of the government.

Our task, then, is to disprove these idiots. Commencing with kicking #OccupyResoluteDesk to the curb.

    Well, in that case it doesn’t matter that Rick Santorum is kicking Romney ASS in PA, does it?

    Eh – A Republican Senate and a Republican House with a Democratic president might be the only hope we have of slowing the growth down.

    Not if the Dem president doesn’t mind end-running around Congress with EO’s and through the judiciary.

     Impressive poll (although it still shows him losing the state to Obama by the same margin as Romney).

    How many delegates does it earn, again?

     Even if they slowed him down, the judicial appointments are for life terms and will be affecting the Republic for at least 30 years beyond the next Presidential term.

    And you certainly can’t repeal ObamaCare as long as he has the veto pen.
