Voters turned out in record numbers on Tuesday to re-elect President Barack Obama. In doing so, they chose to double down on four years of failed Democrat policies that left America weaker and more vulnerable and will continue to do so.

Four years ago, upon Obama's first win, we predicted he would prosecute an economic policy of unprecedented and recovery-retarding taxing, spending and control that would park the private capital so vital to a robust market economy, further crippling the very people Obama promised to heal. That came to pass. Expect a second term filled with the same redistributionist and command mindset that can lead to no good end.

We also predicted a foreign policy of deferentialism that would endanger American sovereignty and invite aggression. And that came to pass, too. Emboldened by re-election, expect only damaging deals to be cut with the likes of Russia's Vladimir Putin and other thuggish foreign leaders to whom this president will continue to bow.

What we could not have predicted was how scandal-ridden the Obama administration would be. Now re-elected, expect more roguish behavior from the likes of Eric Holder, the lawless and orderless attorney general, sweetheart business deals with campaign cronies and all manner of executive orders that mock the hallmark checks and balances of republican governance.

Yes, the American electorate has spoken. And, sadly, it has chosen to make America even more of a shadow of its once grand self.
