Laurie Roth Surprised the Democrats Won’t Just Quit

Wingnut Laurie Roth seems completely shocked that neither President Obama or the Democrats in Congress are going to immediately resign their positions and put themselves into self-imposed exile on the isle of Patmos. You know, like the Republicans do when they lose elections.

Don’t you love the arrogance…the denial…the pathetic threats and whine fest following the most history making election in U.S. history? Pelosi and Reid are marching in lockstep declaring they won’t quit. Obama acts like it is ‘no big’ and threatens amnesty by Christmas with more executive orders. Of course they won’t quit…there must be at least one or two losers left in the audience and certainly some interested mice running around looking for bread crumbs. The rest of America has thrown them and Obama off the stage and shut the concert hall doors. There is nothing more to see.

America won the race.

I know, right? How “arrogant” of those Democrats to think they shouldn’t commit ritual disembowlment on national television to cleanse their families’ honor! Because that’s exactly what the Republicans did in 2008 when they lost the White House and both houses of Congress, right? And I’m sure Roth pointed out their arrogant denial and whining at the time, right? Yeah, I didn’t think so. But she does have a real talent for bizarre analogies:

The winning driver, though coming from behind without a big sponsor — won big. This was because the pit crew – the American voters, were on mark and voted right, while the driver (those running for conservative seats) kept on point and kept driving up to the front. The nation watched while the bright shiny cars crashed into the walls again and again. Now there is not enough medication for the leftist media and Democrat-Zombie survivors. Well…they can deal with it. We have had to deal with them for the last 6 years from hell.

Yeah, the Republicans are without a big sponsor — unless you count the Koch brothers, the oil and gas industry, Wall Street banks and the Chamber of Commerce. And then…something about zombies.

It is time to celebrate, then be aware and plan for the next Zombie moves from Obama and the left. Obama is mad now, more than ever and he will punish the nation severely through his executive orders, starting with the amnesty middle finger. The House and Senate must strategize how they will meet him and each executive order with “bomb defusing equipment.” They must multi process and they have no choice if they are to survive.

Congress and the Senate…”How are you going to push back the UN-constitutional executive order fest that will come?”

Isn’t that interesting? She knows that any executive order that Obama might make will automatically be unconstitutional without having any idea what such orders might be. She must be psychic, unless her standard for determining what is and is not unconstitutional is “anything Obama does is unconstitutional.” I’m sure it is, because intelligent analysis of the issue would leave her little to rant about.

    If this is the most history-making election in US history (rather than, you know, that one where we elected the first black president?), then the bar has been set incredibly low for making history. Practically subterranean.

  • dugglebogey

    So something like 30% of all eligible voters actually vote, slightly more than half of them vote for republicans (actually it’s far less than half, but because of urban geography and gerrymandering republicans still win) the wingnut media decides that means 100% of Americans want democrats to disappear completely!

    Sounds like the denial and arrogance is yours Laurie, that you think this par-for-the-midterm course, mostly-on-home-turf modest victory is in any way history-making. With attitudes like yours, the GOP might actually experience a history-making election in 2016, though not one to its liking.

    Laurie Roth: …the most history making election in U.S. history?

    Uh, no. That would be one among this set of elections: 2008; 2000; 1994; 1980; 1948; 1944; 1940; 1916; 1912; 1904. (I should probably include pre-twentieth-century elections too, but I am too lazy.)

(Emphasis added.)

    No, Ms. Roth; it is time for you to cerebrate. But judging by the several columns of yours I have read, you are sadly incapable of doing that.

    Voter turnout was 38%, lowest since WWII. The GOP had 52% of the votes. Meaning 20% of all eligible voters, voted GOP.

    20% is hardly a huge mandate. The only history here is how low voter turnout was, a near term record low.

    The big question here is why so many didn’t vote. I’m sure there will be surveys along sooner or later. One possibility is that a lot of people think our government is broken and nonfunctional. Which it is.

    But so what. No matter how pointless, dysfunctional, and broken it is, it can always get worse. A lot worse.

    I’m always tempted to answer to the “they must resign NOW!” crowd “You wish you could pull a coup, you don’t have the firepower to successfully pull a coup, so shut the fuck up and keep your absolute autocratic masturbatory power fantasies to yourself

  • garnetstar

    That “cars crashing into the wall” metaphor is a little unsettling. Like the Republican official who urged the voters to hold the Democrats’ heads under water. Unconscious revelations of the desires or urges that drive these people?

    Obviously, the Democrat’s get out the vote campaign was a dismal failure.

    The NASCAR metaphor is meant to appeal to…fuck it. I’m not going to analyze this tripe.

    YEAH! I….wait….you’re not talking about 2012 are you?

    If she wants to show those Dems how to quit even though they weren’t even running for reelection, she needs to point them to the example of her fave cheerleader, the Thrilla from Wasilla….

    Sure was.

    The Democratic party leadership (assuming there is one) really needs to find out why this happened and find some way to prevent it from happening again.

    The saying goes that if the young, minority and female voters ever show up, the GOP is finished. Sounds good but it hasn’t happened yet. Texas is now a minority majority state and they just elected the usual weird old far right wingnut white men again.

    I’ve not been having any luck with my google fu.

    Has anyone seen the numbers, broken down by…state, I guess, of actual gross number of Rep/Dem votes? I’d like to see how much of an affect gerrymandering has, and what states it has the biggest influence in.

    … I got seven emails a day asking me for money, or else the Republicans would win! And… the only person I heard talking about making my life better was the PA gubernatorial candidate. Who tossed our Thuglican out on his ass by 10 pts… while polling a consistent victory of 20-25 pts.

    Texas is now a minority majority state and they just elected the usual weird old far right wingnut white men again.

    Remember; Texas is now free to reinstate literacy tests and poll taxes in the form of Voter ID laws, and have already. Even with the demographic shifts, all they need to do is disenfranchise as many of those minority voters as possible, and they know this.
