Sodom and Gomorrah

Election lessons: President Obama's negative campaigning worked (demonize opponents, lie about your record and scaremonger).

The tipping point was reached. (When you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can count on Paul's vote.)

Blacks and Hispanics voted for Obama on the color of his skin, not on the content of his character. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream goes unfulfilled.

Democratic senators in "red" states ran in opposition to Obama's agenda (their first vote for Harry Reid as majority leader will make Obamacare irreversible).

Mitt Romney's positive campaign focusing on the economy failed, showing again that moderate Republicans (Romney, McCain, Bush 41, Dole, Ford) who don't confront Democrats on the issues (for fear losing "independents") lose.

The liberal media participated in Obama's coverups (assassinations in Libya, Fast and Furious gun-running, Obamacare's impending taxes and rationing, green energy financial scandals and more), promoted Obama's Hurricane Sandy photo ops as great leadership (instead of hammering him as they did President Bush after Katrina), falsified polls by over-weighting Democrats, embraced high unemployment and low growth (the "new normal"), ignored inflation, impending sequestration, layoffs, Democrats initially leaving God and Jerusalem out of their platform and daily Biden gaffes.

Washington, D.C., has become Sodom and Gomorrah! We are doomed to wander in the wilderness.
