After having had a day to digest the election results, Glenn Beck is no longer mystified by results and the unrecognizable America that surrounds him but now knows exactly what the problem is: half of Americans are "utterly and completely lost in darkness":
Joseph Farah says President Obama's re-election is "God’s judgment on a people who have turned away from Him and His ways and from everything for which our founders sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor."
Mike Huckabee says that the election results "only remind me that our country has slipped into a deeper state of dependence on government than I wanted to believe."
And Gary Bauer declares that "hope and change gave way to fear and smear."
Nobody is actually blaming Bill Keller for Romney's loss because he is a nobody who wields no influence.
Allen West is demanding a recount in the election that appears to have cost him his seat in Congress.
Roy Moore, the "Ten Commandments Judge," was re-elected to a seat on the Alabama Supreme Court after having been removed from that very position in 2003.
It is amazing to see Newt Gingrich returning to his "reasonable and rational" commentator persona now that the election is over.
Finally, Bryan Fischer knows how to get the GOP back on track: Rick Perry 2016.
Today, Glenn Beck sought to make sense of the results of last night's election, beginning with a lengthy, tear-filled monologue about George Washington before getting down a business by rolling out hints about his plans to create an entire Blaze "ecosystem" that will be able to operate independently of the government and existing media structure because everything is about to go downhill ... so people need to start buying up farmland, pull their kids out of the public schools, and loading up on guns:
Like Glenn Beck, the American Family Association also hosted a live election night broadcast which took on a somber and sour mood once it became clear that the conservative agenda was going down in defeat all across the board, prompting Sandy Rios to say that Elizabeth Warren was elected to the Senate because Massachusetts had been inundated by gays who destroyed the educational system as she watched in horror the breaking news that Todd Akin was being "blown out" in his bid for the Senate.
Morton Blackwell was then brought in to explain that President Obama was going to win re-election because he "did not underestimate the capacity of people to harbor envy and hate and greed for something for nothing," while Bryan Fischer suggested that perhaps we ought to just split the country in half and let conservatives run their half and liberals run the other ... with a massive wall in between, of course, to keep out all the liberals who would try to sneak in.
For Tim Wildmon, Obama's re-election could best be explained by the fact that he was re-elected by the states where people don't go to church before finally simply declaring that "it's a tragic night":
For the first few hours, the mood was jovial and confident as Beck munched on ice cream to celebrate the breaking of his forty day fast and served up meals to others who did the same. But then, once the networks called the state of Pennsylvania for President Obama and started eliminating some of the other states that Romney supporters thought would propel his campaign to victory, the mood on set took a somber turn as everyone involved began to realize that all of their hopes and predictions were slowly being dashed.
And soon all discussion turned to the question of what went wrong, as the mystified participants tried to make sense of what they were seeing, leading Jerry Boykin to declare that the entire election was invalid because some members of the military supposedly were unable to vote and prompting Beck to speculate that America will not survive another decade if conservatives do not gain control over the nation's public education system.
But mostly Beck was just demoralized, saying that the result demonstrate that "the body of America is even sicker than I thought it was" and declaring that he no longer can say that he knows who Americans are:
Ralph Reed will hold "a news briefing to discuss the results of a post-election survey showing the impact of the evangelical vote and other faith-based voters on the outcome of the 2012 elections." We can't wait.
Matt Barber is now apparently an expert on energy independence.
The Family Research Council is predicting "massive turnout among Values Voters" and is taking credit for that turnout.
Phyllis Schlafly says "increasingly atheistic public schools ... are probably the biggest reason for this decline in religion among youth."
On today's broadcast, Bryan Fischer blasted New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for praising the Obama Administration's response to Hurricane Sandy and for refusing to campaign for Mitt Romney in the midst of the recovery. And if that wasn't bad enough, Fischer also criticized Christie for taking a strong stand in support of the state law that bans price-gouging on gasoline during an emergency, saying that not allowing sellers to charge whatever they want amounts to "socialism" and only serves as a disincentive to the production of more gasoline:
Newt Gingrich appeared on Steve Deace's radio program last evening to explain why Mitt Romney is going to win the election, which makes sense given Gingrich's steller record of making accurate election predictions.
During the discussion, Gingrich said that another Obama administration would be a "nightmare" because an "arrogant" and "divisive" Obama wants to make sure that "the government which is currently failing in Hurricane Sandy" will be delivering your healthcare:
I think that this is the most important election of our lifetime. Period. I think that four more years of Obama will be a nightmare. I don't expect him to change very much, I think that he'll feel vindicated if he's won. I mean, he's already so arrogant that he talks about using votes as a form of revenge. He's running a deliberately divisive campaign and I think that there's no evidence that he's learned anything.
The Left is opposed to teaching American history, is deeply offended by the idea of American exceptionalism, believes in dependency and food stamps, wants to centralize power in Washington. I remind people who are watching the mess in New York, and Staten Island, and New Jersey: the government which is currently failing in Hurricane Sandy is the government that Obama wants to deliver your healthcare. So I just think there are fundamentally antithetical views of reality.
