Republicans still having a sad about America's decline into socialism and decay because Obama

Poor, poor Republicans. They were so certain of their unskewed, non-gay math, and they're still reeling from the devastation of the completely predicted but nonetheless shocking to them defeat on Election Day. Like poor Beth Cox, a hardcore Romney campaign volunteer who was dumb enough to write "Victory Day!!" on her calendar:

She had devoted her life to causes she believed were at the heart of her faith and at the core of her Republican Party. She counseled young married families at church, spoke about right to life in area schools and became a stay-at-home mom with two daughters.
Now, in a single election night, parts of her country had legalized marijuana, approved gay marriage and resoundingly reelected a president who she worried would “accelerate our decline.”
Bless her little twisted Republican heart—she really believed Mitt Romney was going to save her from the eeeeeeeevil President Barack Obama. After all, her favorite sources of propaganda-as-news had told her he would. That's how she knew Romney's victory was all but certain; after all, she'd unskewed the numbers herself:

She turned on her computer and pulled up an electoral map that she had filled out a few days before the election. She had predicted the outcome twice — once coming up with a narrow Romney win and once more with a blowout.
Florida: red.

Colorado: red.

Virginia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin: all red.[...]

Romney’s thorough defeat had come more as a shock than as a disappointment, and now Cox stared at the actual results on her computer and tried to imagine what the majority of her country believed.

“Virginia went blue? Really?” she said.“Southern-values Virginia?”

“And Colorado? Who the heck is living in Colorado? Do they want drugs, dependency, indulgence? Don’t they remember what this country is about?”
Cox, who is "not naïve" and "not ignorant," according to Cox, has some deep insights as to why her map didn't exactly pan out, and hopes that the party will stop being so white, stop saying crazy things about rape, and will "never again run a presidential ticket without including a woman or a minority." And since the party is pretty much all white and all male, that will totally happen. Especially if Cox is willing to set aside her "volunteering, her scrapbooking" and her "Godly life" to run for state office, as her fellow Tennessee Republicans have encouraged her to do because her kind of stupid is exactly what the party is looking for, apparently.(Come on, Beth, of course scrapbooking is really important to the fate of the nation, but your country and your party need you right now!)
And that seems like the right direction for the Republican Party to take. After the "shell-shocking" shellacking the party took on Election Day, and the so-called soul-searching it must now force upon itself to figure out why the GOP vision of America was rejected, finding more candidates like Cox—who think math has a liberal bias, Fox "News" is the best source of information, and someone had better step up and do something to save America from the gays and pot-smokers before it's too late—is definitely the best way for the party to change course and start winning back all those Americans it lost this time around.

Yeah, Republicans. Go with that.

How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question.
On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White House’s website received a petition asking the administration to allow Louisiana to secede.
If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.(RELATED: Website petition to Obama: Please create “Do Not Kill” list)

Allen West gets Florida County to do early recount, still losing

Patrick Murphy has been unofficially declared the winner in his hotly contested race against Rep. Allen West. How hotly contested? Despite the fact that the win was outside the margin that triggers an automatic recount, West is still fighting. He got St. Lucie county to do a partial recount of early ballots, despite the fact that the hearing he demanded, attempting to impound voting machines and ballots in the county, won't be heard until tomorrow.

Election officials said they were taking the step "out of an abundance of caution."
The official notice of the recount stated all early votes would be included, but officials then decided to feed only three days of ballots into scanners.

West's campaign objected to the dates being recounted, the absence of a full recount of early votes and the county's refusal to turn over some other documentation requested.[...]


"What's going on today is a sham. It does nothing to address all the concerns we have," West campaign manager Tim Edson said. "We'll take every legal action necessary."
That partial recount still gives Murphy the win, still outside recount margins. But West's threat is clear: "We'll take every legal action necessary."
He's going to drag this out as long as the courts will allow.

Please chip in $3 to help Patrick Murphy fight this legal battle.

First, the 21 districts in Ohio which voted 100% for Obama were in Cuyahoga County, Cleveland, and those same districts have historically voted for the Democratic candidate. Also, many of these Cleveland districts are nearly 100% black persons. Now, do you seriously think that Romney swayed these districts away from the Democratic party as well as a black candidate that you can legitimately claim voter fraud?
As for the claim that Wood County had 108% number for voters...the reference is from the amount of eligible voters (98,213) taken from a 2010 census opposed to the amount of registered voters 108,014 of which 62,069 voted). Wood County is home to Bowling Green University (17,000+ students). Do you think it may be a possibility that in the two years since the 2010 census, that the number of eligible voters may have increased due to the number of students who have changed their residency status to Wood County for the sake of voting? Also, Obama won with 52.61% of the vote in 2008 in Wood County.(2008 Presidential Election: 101,891 registered voters, 65,164 voted).

'Mr. Boehner has got to understand they lost'

Bernie Sanders rebuts the ludicrous argument that Americans gave Republicans a mandate to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy:

Well, I think the objective facts disagree with that assertion. The Democrats gained two seats in the Senate, did better than anyone dreamed. The Democrats gained more votes in the House, gained a few seats in the House. President Obama won a resounding electoral college victory and won the popular vote, I think by two and a half million votes.[Note: It's actually 3.3 million as of now.]
To suggest the Republicans did well in this election makes no sense at all.

President Obama was very clear. He spoke about this all of the time: if reelected, he is not going to extend tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. He was reelected. Many of us ran on a similar program. We were reelected.

So I think Mr. Boehner has got to understand they lost, and let the wishes of the majority of the people in this country prevail.

Yup.

About that mandate...

A funny thing about mandates. While the general conservative reaction to the Obama victory is either pushing a fellow conservative off a tall building, or explaining that now that Obama won, he should govern like a conservative for unity's sake, the numbers are pretty interesting.

Remember that this is all preliminary, and there are votes yet to count. But for now, using Dave Leip's excellent US Election Atlas:

• John Kerry (48.27%) got a bigger percentage of the popular vote than either Mitt Romney (47.85) or John McCain (45.6)

* Kerry's 251 electoral votes was greater than McCain's 173 and Romney's 206.(Losing didn't stop McCain from being on MTP every Sunday.)

• Barack Obama's electoral wins (332 and 365) dwarfs Bush's (286 and 271). Clinton got 379 and 370. You have to go back to 1988 for George HW Bush's 426 to find a Republican win over 300.

• Obama's 61,939,115 is more than Bush in 2000 (50,460,110) and closing in on Bush in 2004 (62,040,610 )— remember, there are still votes to count.[UPDATE on Google puts Obama at 62,088,847 surpassing Bush.]

Keep the above in mind when pundits declare there's no mandate here. These are the same pundits insisting the vote was tied.

They were wrong about that, too.

An Election to Be Proud of

If we rise above party politics for a few minutes, and we should, we would feel a real sense of pride about Tuesday's election -- particularly what it says about America and Americans. This is based on four observations; and it takes into account the regrettable fact that hundreds of millions of dollars were wasted on negative and often misleading advertising in an overly-bitter and ridiculously-expensive campaign.

While worried about the economy, Americans did not opt for unspecified promises and immaculate job creation; nor did they fall for financial engineering and deficit reduction magic. Instead, they stuck with an approach that has been establishing, albeit too slowly and too gradually, the foundation for solid growth and employment; and these are the two key ingredients for safely de-leveraging over time an economy that got drunk last decade on debt creation, credit entitlements and a crazy risk and compensation culture.

Americans also signaled that they are committed to a better educational system. This is most visible in California where we voted to increase taxes to better fund schools. It is also part of a growing realization that, if we are not careful, for the first time in over a hundred years our children's generation risks being worse off than that of their parents. Thus the importance of providing our youth a stronger educational experience, and equipping them with responsive analytical tools and more global mindsets -- all of which are essential to navigate what inevitably will be a more challenging domestic and international context.

Concern about supporting the vulnerable groups of society does not stop at education. For some, Elizabeth Warren's decisive win in Massachusetts put an exclamation mark on the importance of helping those who have fallen through our overly stretched social safety nets.

Finally, by electing a record number of women to serve in the Senate, Americans continue to signal the importance of inclusiveness and diversity. Yet this number, and that of Hispanics and other minority groups, remain well below what is both desirable and feasible based on qualifications, talent and experience. If we are to handle well the future, we need our governing institutions to better reflect demographic realities.

As we look forward, we should expect a lot of soul searching among Republicans.

They lost a presidential contest that many of them expected to win. They gave up seats in the Senate. They failed to capitalize on disappointments with some elements of President Obama's first term. And they struggled to sufficiently extend widespread support beyond the traditional base of white men.

Let us hope that this soul searching, together with Democrats' strengthened commitment to govern for all Americans, leads to constructive collaboration in Congress.

On Tuesday, America and Americans sent a clear signal that they understand the importance of supporting each other during times of continued economic stress and "unusual uncertainty." We now need our elected representatives to put the interests of the country ahead of the legacy of backward-looking and outdated partisan commitments. And we need them to do so quickly, starting with an orderly resolution of the fiscal cliff.

As bad as that might sound, one would be tempted to take what you falsely label as four years of higher unemployment and a failed economy over 9 years of Afghan - Iraq war which put the US in hock with the Chinese, the Japanese and the Saudis, killed over 6,000 Americans, 30 times the number of Afghans and Iraqis, unsettled the total middle east situation, as Iraq, the sworn enemy of Iran and buffer between Iran and the west, hasbecome Iran's trusted ally. And infrastructure in those two countries half destroyed and oil as expensive as ever (thank you for nothing, Iraq), as indeed to thank the US for its "assistance", just signed a huge exploration deal with... Russia. Fabulous. Good work, GWB. Pile on top of that the worst recession since 1929, thank you GWB. Hmm, Obama's 4 years of so-called higher unemployment and failed ecomomy look mighty good. Oh, btw, do you suppose it's better to be unemployed than dead in some far-off country that you could not even find on a map?
