One significant development in the recent election was votes in four states approving same-sex marriage initiatives. Until now, all previous state referenda to approve same-sex marriage â 32 of them â failed.
Middle East analyst Aaron David Miller echoed the concerns of many when he wrote in the July 2012 edition of Foreign Policy, âMy sense is that, if he could get away with it, the president would like to see a U.S.-Israeli relationship that is not just less exclusive, but somewhat less special as well.â
In the immortal words of Ronald Reagan, âW-e-l-l, there you go again.â Post-election, the Republicans just canât seem to get their act together. They canât bring themselves to admit that President Obama beat them fair and square.
It seems every time the Republicans lose a presidential election, white board-toting architects and backroom strategists descend on the Sunday talk shows. Republicans must dump the social issues. Defending the right to life of unborn children and upholding the civil right of marriage is just costing too much support with the voters.
Itâs your fault! Yes,Â yours! Donât look around, look in the mirror. Itâs your fault, you hard-working nine-to-fivers, small business owners, corporate staffs, factory owners and workers.Â YouÂ are to blame for the current state of affairs in America, for the liberal (now âprogressiveâ) oriented 49 percenters who voted Obama in for another four years. You are to blame.
