(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, ELECTION DAY +1, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 7, 2012) — We won’t belabor the point, but We The People — their electors, at any rate — have re-elected Barack Obama President of the United States. One could see it coming, despite a credible effort by Mitt Romney. In the end, too many rabid right wingers were enough to scare away enough votes from the Republicans to make the difference for Romney. The loonyards on the left (we’re talking the extremes of both parties) were hardly noticed here in Massachusetts, where unless you have “D” after your name, you can’t crack the adults table. What a pity!
With the Congress remaining in GOP hands and the Dems holding on to the Senate, tell THE PLANET: what will change in the next four years concerning the paralyzing gridlock that has festooned this country in crepe?
As for us, we are dropping out of the electoral college, where our professorship has come to a merciful end. We’ve done a lot of blogging and writing lately, countless numbers of words, and we shall enjoy a brief post-election repast. Today, we open things up a bit. THE PLANET would like to hear from anyone and everyone out there who has thoughts on what happened last night, both nationally and statewide, with the President’s successful re-election bid and Democratic hegemonic rule having been returned to the Commonwealth in Elizabeth Warren‘s defeat of Scott Brown.
One parting thought: What kind of man is Mitt Romney? A man of class, dignity, and honor. The best “for instance” we can offer is one from last night. After it became apparent that Obama had won, Romney ordered his webmaster to carry a live stream of the President victory speech. That’s a class act, ladies and gentlemen.
Your thoughts, as always, add the spice to our vittles here on THE PLANET, have fun, go for it, don’t mince words, but keep the discussion elevated. We cherish the heights, not for “looking down” on anyone. Rather, we love the rarified air, clean, free, and uncomplicated.
