Barack Obama won the election.

He did not win by stealing the election. Voter irregularities always happen. It is one reason we support voter ID rules. But even in the worse scenario of reports out there, there were not enough tales of voter irregularities to matter nationwide. This is another benefit and built in safeguard of the electoral college.

Barack Obama won. He won by turning out the most people in a well run campaign. In other words, he won fair and square.

We here at RedState are American citizens. We have no plans to secede from the union. If you do, good luck with that, but this is not the place for you.

[...]

So let’s add dabblers in this latest nuttiness to birthers as a category of people we do not welcome at RedState. Our aim is to beat the Democrats, not beat a retreat to a Confederacy that Generals Grant and Sherman rent asunder well over a hundred years ago.

Even here at RedState, while we may not much care for him, President Obama is still our President and we are still quite happily citizens of the United States. If we must drain this fever swamp that’s taken hold of a few people on the right over this past week before we can drain the swamp in Washington, so be it.

You sir are a real man and a true patriot.. Even though we may disagree on how to get there, it would appear that our country comes first. God bless you and those like you. Unfortunately the onslaught to come for standing tall by the Right wing animals will probably be nasty. Ask Gov. Christie and Sen. McCain....

Woman runs over her husband in Arizona because Obama won and he did not vote.

Man in Key West commits suicide because Obama won.

Thousands want to cede from the union because Obama won.

Does anyone need any more proof of you idiotic and carried away some of these people get?

I suspect that in four years the United States of America will still be here despite anything that President Obama does.

It must be really sad to live in your world.

Florida did mandatory drug testing I think for two years. They found out it cost about 35 times more than they saved by kicking people off that tested positive.

Cell Phones? Have you looked for a job without having a cell phone? Do you want these people to get and keep jobs or not?

Most states if you get busted for drugs your welfare ends. Why not yours?

You are a Republican, aren't you? Misinformed. Unthinking.

I'm pretty sure the guy hasn't ever voted. He's just taking another racist using politics (pretty thinly) to attack the President.

David Petraeus, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, told lawmakers on Friday that classified intelligence reports revealed that the deadly assault on the American diplomatic mission in Libya was a terrorist attack, but that the administration refrained from saying it suspected that the perpetrators of the attack were Al Qaeda affiliates and sympathizers to avoid tipping off the groups.

The city of Reading has blue tents set up where they can give free cell phones and minutes for anyone that qualifies and can help them with job search. Sounds like a drug search and arrest .

The administration refrained from saying what ?
They didn't want to tip off the groups spraying the Embassy and Consulate with rockets and gunfire ? Pretty lame for not acting with real time info.

They did act. They did not want the group to know we were on to them so that they would talk freely....and they did. Al Qaeda was unaware of the attack until one of the attacking group members called to brag about it. They arrested two of the attackers in Turkey. They found some more in Yemen.

Had they known we were knew it was them none of this might have occured.
