Paul Krugman: The Real Real America "A Huge Night for Truth, Justice, and The Real American Way"

The Real Real America

So, for a while there during the campaign it seemed very iffy. But in the end, discipline and being on the right side of the issues prevailed. Yes, Elizabeth Warren won!

Oh, and that guy Obama too.


Tomorrow — or I guess today — comes the cleanup; when thousands, perhaps millions, of right-wing heads explode, it makes quite a mess. Also, notice that the polls were right. I wonder if I can get invited when Nate Silver is sworn in as president?

- snip -

For a long time, right-wingers — and some pundits — have peddled the notion that the “real America”, all that really counted, was the land of non-urban white people, to which both parties must abase themselves. Meanwhile, the actual electorate was getting racially and ethnically diverse, and increasingly tolerant too. The 2008 Obama coalition wasn’t a fluke; it was the country we are becoming.

And sure enough that more diverse and, if you ask me, better nation just won big.

Notice too that to the extent that social issues played in this election, they played in favor of Democrats. Gods, guns, and gays didn’t swing voters into supporting corporate interests; instead, human dignity for women swung votes the other way.

A huge night for truth, justice, and the real American way.

7. Actually is was quite a Refreshing sight!!!!!!

Go back and look at the Crowd when the said the President had WON his re-election bid. When they panned the camera over the President's Crowd it was apparent to those in the Romney camp that something was different. They looked around the room and saw no one but THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!The MIRROR gave a STARK IMAGE of what the REPUBLICAN Party had become!!!!!!!They are going to need a little time to clean up their act!!!Probably about 10 years to recover from the lies of the PAST!!!!! I almost feel sorry for them but it is a transition that is necessary!!!!!To my President and all doubters,I did not doubt. I looked at our party and felt that we represented an America that would ultimately be seen as well as heard. Enjoy this day Mr. President!!!!!!!You and those who waited in those long lines can Savor the Moment!!!And then its back to Work with your loyal base behind you. Thanks to Everyone who participated in this process, it could not have been done without all of us TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!
