Will the right respect the election results?

Ive never seen such blind hatred for any man than what I have seen directed at President Obama. You all know examples of the naked hatred of the the Commander in Chief. Will the right respect the election results or will they riot and call for impeachment (or worse)? Im afraid of their reaction, I wouldn't be surprised to see violence, rumors of violence, and serious charges of fraud over the results.

Yeah we weren't happy about George Bush but we didnt bring guns to rallys or slash gas lines going to people's houses.

1. Of course...

...if the results come out the way they WANT them to. Just like the Constitution...they support it so long as it's convenient.

11. I predict Razzy will suddenly say -

Obama took the lead at the last moment. About Monday, they will have Obama ahead .5 points. Just so they can claim accuracy. I think Zogby did that in 2000, right? Oh well.

5. They'll probably pursue the Benghazi bullshit story and try to impeach him.

 

But I can only feel so sorry for democrats in this position.

Dems should have sent members of the Bush administration to jail, but the dems didn't do jack shit.

Let Clinton get impeached for a blowjob, though.

Yep, there's American priorities for ya. We hate love. We love hate.

7. who cares what the republibertariantea think. Obama will win, the senate, the SCOTUS, etc.

 

with more to come in 2014 and Hillary45 in 2016.

the other party will be demoted to a minor party with no power.

and the people will vote out the repubs if they obstruct.
the sane republicans know this and will work with Obama.

10. Wishful thinking. There's still a great many idiots in this country.

 

The only time republicans win elections anymore is if they act super rightwing crazy.

It worked in 1980 and 1984 with Reagan. Then what happened? H.W. lost in 1992 because he was semi-sane and raised taxes. Can't have that.

They tried being centrist in 1996 with Dole and they didn't win.

So they went full on fuckin' crazy again and gave us George W. Bush.

The republican party will not get sane anytime soon, and there are too many morons who love the conservative mentality. It appeals to dumb people because it's so simple an infant could understand it. "Duh duh duh me keep me tax money duh duh duh and get freedumb and guns duh duh duh."

18. Absolutely

the only thing I will say is that Bush II did run as a moderate, the compassionate conservative bullshit.

I remember the time and election plain as day.

The country simply was fatigued from 8 years of republican's throwing a fit (like they did from 09 to 10) and Bush seemed harmless enough, the "guy you would like to have a beer" with and I think the country simply got fat and lazy from what good Clinton did, and threw the republicans a bone for what seemed like a nice enough guy.

I hated him with a passion, it was pretty clear he was an entitled twit who got by on his name, and I was just shocked that the country would so carelessly dismiss a more accomplished and serious man for the clown.

I still remember the feeling in the pit of my stomach after it took the bizarre turn it took that night.

But, your are spot on with your points that they will only be meaner and more extreme.

21. remember the 2000 phony brooks bros. riot in Miama dade?

 

we didn't have social media then

had we, we would have outed those phony Tom DeLay aggitators minute one

and then they could have arrested by Janet Reno or whomever was the AG at that moment for crossingstate lines to interfere with a federal election (much the charge the Chicago 7 were arrested for in 1968.)

WE won a peaceful revolution Nov.1968
and we shall win again.

they are only left to rant (and they are demographically angry OLD males.
do you think they (the 1%) actually have an army of protesters?
Who do you think did all those1%ers works back in the pre-civil war days?

It sure wasn't Mitt voters who did down south(which these people resemble and want to go back to 1850s).

guess what-those are President Obama voters, WE are the ones that defeated THEM and we are fighting on OUR side.

Hell, if social media existed way back, I bet slavery never would have happened.
All it would have taken was one tweet
(same in WW2 with the Nazi's)

one tweet could have changed the world

can one imagine what one tweet over the course of history might have meant?

This is 2012, not "then". We now have instant fact checking cameras and proof that can instantly stop a mob on "their" side by showing how few in the mob they have.


all they have is BLUFF AND BRAVADO. They have been exposed. The curtain revealed.

(btw, this should be a separate thread.)

14. I'm glad you're confident of a win...I'm not as confident...it's too close.

 

I wonder if our side will respect the results if it doesn't turn out in our favor.

They sure won't respect the voting results if O wins.

17. They didn't respect a landslide victory in 2008

 

What makes anybody think they'd respect any result in 2012?

I expect full on violence from the right. Terrorism by RWNJs will increase.

20. This actually really worries me

It seems like there are two very different realities afoot. The right seems to really have bought into the notion that Romney has this wrapped up. The media are not helping. I remember how I felt after 2000. I remember the outrage. Given how these folks are, the quality of their rhetoric...the whole "2nd amendment solutions" thing. It just gives me the creeps. I hope that in the next day or so the media get with reality and at least give these people some warning that the fiction they have been sold is, indeed, a fiction.

So much will depend on Romney's ability to essentially tell them the Truth. I just don't see how that goes over. It is frightening.
