Obama is the first president since Republican Dwight Eisenhower to win back-to-back presidential elections with more than 51 percent of the popular vote."

They really are. It's literally their worst nightmare: a Big City Democrat not from a southern state. Hasn't happened since FDR.

They would hate him regardless of color, but that rubs salt in the wound for sure.

It's also pretty misleading - this sort of implies that Obama's margin was bigger, Obviously Reagan had a greater margin of victory in 1980, but a 3rd party candidate was bigger. Clinton had a larger combined margin of victory, but his margin grew (like Reagan) between 1st and 2nd term. Obama's shrunk by 3.5%.

Obama is the first president since FDR to win a 2nd term and have his margin of victory shrink.

A blast from the past:

President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

The media tells us that you have received the largest number of popular votes of any president in America's history. Congratulations!

In your re-election, God has graciously granted America-though she doesn't deserve it-a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate. We the people expect your voice to be like the clear and certain sound of a trumpet. Because you seek the Lord daily, we who know the Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.

Don't equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

Had your opponent won, I would have still given thanks, because the Bible says I must (I Thessalonians 5:18). It would have been hard, but because the Lord lifts up whom He will and pulls down whom He will, I would have done it. It is easy to rejoice today, because Christ has allowed you to be His servant in this nation for another presidential term. Undoubtedly, you will have opportunity to appoint many conservative judges and exercise forceful leadership with the Congress in passing legislation that is defined by biblical norm regarding the family, sexuality, sanctity of life, religious freedom, freedom of speech, and limited government. You have four years-a brief time only-to leave an imprint for righteousness upon this nation that brings with it the blessings of Almighty God.

Christ said, "If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my father honour" (John 12:26).

The student body, faculty, and staff at Bob Jones University commit ourselves to pray for you-that you would do right and honor the Savior. Pull out all the stops and make a difference. If you have weaklings around you who do not share your biblical values, shed yourself of them. Conservative Americans would love to see one president who doesn't care whether he is liked, but cares infinitely that he does right.

Best wishes.

Sincerely your friend,

Bob Jones III
President

BJIII:lw

PS: A few moments ago I read this letter to the students in Chapel. They applauded loudly their approval.

When I told them that Tom Daschle was no longer the minority leader of the Senate, they cheered again.

I wanted to ask what 'high crimes and/or misdemeanors' has the president committed?
 
2013-01-04 09:08:54 PM
Since congress is so partisan, and we're almost guaranteed a very low amount of productivity and meaningful bills being passed, which would make Obama something of a lame duck, I think it would be really funny if Obama took advantage of the inauguration and said something extremely out of character for him, and something extremely inflammatory targeting the teatards.

Knowing that noone can do a damn thing about it, and his job wouldn't really be on the line since he can't be elected for a third term.

Won't happen. He's too classy. But the mental image still makes me giggle.
