Yup. Someone who's worth $250 million with $14 million in annual investment income has little in common with median income voters. Add the Hispanic and women votes that Romney alienated cost the Republicans this very winnable election.

Heard the same thing four years ago. I am still here;, the United States of America is still here and doing better; the only thing ruinous to society is you and unfortunately you are still here as well.

If Obama don't get rid of you this time I might thing about replacing him.

Down 3 percent - and continuing to fall ... over $100 billion in capital market value wiped out in less than a week thanks to the rubes' re-election of Axelrod's & Jarrett's trained suit.

The country will recover if Obama starts acting like a fiscally responsible POTUS, quits the partisan blame game and drops the divisive class warrior BS, and demands Congress slash federal spending back to a sustainable 18% or less of GDP where it belongs.
And pigs might fly.
No - America voted for - and got - NO hope and NO change; 4 more years of amateurish incompetence and failure, and more partisan class war blaming rhetoric as lame excuse for it.
I guess Reagan negotiating with Iranians (terrorist supporters) and giving weapons to terrorists made him a real communist Alpha Hotel didn’t it?
What about when Bush the father did it in Afghanistan?
What about bush the son in Iraq and Afghanistan?
What about the Republican leaders in Congress that supported those negotiations?
Teddy open mouth and insert foot much?

It takes 10% to even be considered a correction. I am sure you would like it to mean something, but it really does not. Particularly considering Europe and the Fiscal Cliff.

Partisan blame game? Is that like the Republicans pretending the Dems won’t compromise when their initial proposal was a compromise?

America did not vote for Obama, they voted against the Republicans.

What was it that turned people away from the Republican message in times like these? It was not just that Obama got reelected, they lost seats in the House and Senate as well. That is broad, general dislike of Republican policies.

10 Republican seats up for election in the Senate.
23 Democrat seats up for election in the Senate.
Of they 10 Senators that resigned, 7 were Democrats and 3 were Republicans.

Given the economy and the odds in their favor, why did Republicans lose seats instead of winning control of the Senate?

Yet, billionaire Bloomberg gets elected as Mayor of New York City. Money has nothing to do with it. Americans have just become lazy and they want a nanny state that will take care of them. Free stuff seems to rule.

Poorassed way to try to rub it in . "America didn't vote for Obama ,they voted against Republicans "

They sure as hell voted for Obama . All the black and brown race did . When asked why, the young-uns said , now I can go to college just like Obama did . The 47% that wouldn't vote for Romney were in the 59 polling places in Philly that didn't give Romney one vote. Methinks a little stretch in voting .

That school thing with Obama may be why his application for a job and Harvard would have been enhanced by listing his birthplace as Kenya.

There is no proof that Reagan knew Ollie North and an Admiral were working the Iran Contra thing from the basement of the White House .

Did Bloomberg have a formidable challenger? Mark Green? Freddie Ferrer? Bill Thompson? You're using NYC as a microcosm of the USA? Wake up and get a clue. Your candidate was up against a flawed incumbent yet skillful campaigner. Your candidate was unable to get the undecided votes from women and alienated the Hispanic vote. Lost all but one swing state. Numbers don't lie.

Americans aren't lazy. They can see though a candidate with the negatives Romney had.

What percentage of Black and brown normally vote for the Dem Party? After that you might have a point. On the other hand, how many white people normally vote the Republican Party? The reverse is just as apt to be true.

The first response should be to immediately stop all federal money flowing into those states until the states decide what they want to do. Why pour money into someone leaving?
