Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

I'm afraid to look until most of the polls are closed - at least in the swing states.

Lily, I believe most women want what most men want - a job and food on the table for their families.
That ain't happening with a lot of women these days - or men.
You people need to quit relying so much on the government. Go and create jobs with all the tax cuts, tax rebates and incentives Obama has given to small businesses these last few years. Do it now! Oh, and quit whining.

Romney is a liar. Do you think that the American women are going to vote for a fast talking liar? "Of course I won't sign bills to overturn Roe v Wade, of course I believe in a womans right to choose; of course I don't believe a woman should have an abortion unless she is raped; I just chose a VP candidate who proposed Personhood, thereby outlawing contraception"
He has to be the biggest liar ever, and it doesn't matter to you rightwingers.
Exactly. If anyone thinks a fanatical Mormon won't do his best to push his beliefs on the rest of the world you're in for a surprise. If I were a woman I would run from Romney as fast as my little Reeboks would go. And for the men... I shouldn't even have to point anything out to you. Romney LITERALLY talks to and hears god. Hearing voices is a bad thing and shold be attended to, not put in charge of the "buttons."

Of course he didn't say it, that was a reference to an event that happened.
Give it up, you're not convincing me of your pure motives.
The day I was concerned about convincing you Romney zombies (and, admit it, you don't even like him) of anything would be the day I was stupid enough to actually think today's Republicans are still the party of Lincoln, Eisenhower, or even, George H. W...Grover Nordquist--there's your ticket.

Of course not.
You right whiners get so freaking desperate that you become quite ridiculous.
Don't pay any attention to anything Notreal Dave says. He's just a Jane Fonda worshipping America hating draft-dodger who vilifies other people who actually served their country. He believes people who served honorably in the Navy are "chickensh'ts". He's obviously never met a Navy Seal. His opinions are completely insignificant.

He just wanted liberals to know they were freaking out about nothing again - as usual.
If anything, Romney is much more about peace than war by his nature.
But peace through strength. Which makes a whole lot of sense.
An INCREASE of 4% of the GDP toward the military budget? No, Romney doesn't make a whole lot of sense - and you should have been freaking out when he proposed it.

<quoted text>Romney pretty much agreed with President Obama's strategies on the Middle East in the last debate. He has not said a word about starting a war with anyone. Obama said all options are on the table if Iran develops a nuclear weapon which is also what Romney said.
Where did I say Obama WOULDN'T lead us to war in the Middle East? At least he knows which countries in the Middle East have coastline....
Romney is a warmonger, who was raised, and has raised his sons, to avoid the draft. I have zero respect for him.
carol wrote:
<quoted text>Romney wants to give the abortion issue back to the states to decide. It might mean a road trip for women who really want an abortion but it also will curb irresponsible behavior because of the inconvenience.
I'm sure all you womb warriors would like to believe that. For our daughters' sakes, I really hope they get to define 'convenience' for themselves, and that their states (and their moms) won't do it for them.
carol wrote:
<quoted text>Besides, a lot of abortion centers are nothing more than legalized butcher centers - some sterilized with qualified butchers - some not.
So are a lot of plastic surgery centers - but botched abortions are a whole lot more rare than botched plastic surgery - and if your abortion goes bad it's currently legal for another doctor to treat you. Wasn't always that way, you know.

<quoted text>Romney/Ryan Medicare reform won't even kick in until 15 years down the road. However, Obama has already stolen over 700 million from Medicare to fund Obamacare.
From the insurance companies allowable profits - not from the Medicare program. You really need to research your soundbites before you post them.

<quoted text>You'd think you'd be more concerned about how this is going to affect seniors right now.
My mother has had 2 surgeries in the last 4 years, and medicare picked up most of the tab for both of them. She wouldn't have been able to pay for either one, otherwise. I think you might need to research this soundbite too...

We don't re elect economic failures. People need jobs, Obama hasn't delivered.

No not clear thinking at all, if any of you conservatives blinded by the BS that Fox pumps out on a daily basis every bothered to step foot offshore and visit a few other countries at the moment to see how they are doing economically then you might consider yourself to be living in a lucky country.
Republicans buried the world economy, as usual right throughout American history it is left to the Democrats to clean up the mess.

Got news for you Carol, if the dark forces come into play and by the same crap that got Bush elected over Gore. Then I can tell you now, whether Mitt is a man of peace or not will make no difference. The back room Republicans will have you in another war in no time at all. Mitt will not be running the government it will be all those unseen faces none of whom you elected. Had Gore been rightfully elected in Bush's first term in office there would have been no war in the middle east and with the money saved Big Al might have put solar panels on every American house and then still have money left over.
Scare tactics.

Your last sentence is pure delusion. If solar was so cheap, efficient, and all around wonderful, entrepreneurs would have capitalized on it by now. Pffffft

Historically, conservatives can handle bad news with a lot more maturity.

It's sore losers who can never accept losing gracefully that I'm concerned about. Temper tantrums are now part of the equation.

I've already made peace with the fact I could be sorely disappointed.

Then again, I'm a clear-thinking conservative and not a brat who throws a temper tantrum if I don't get my way.

That's for children and those with childish mentalities. Most liberals, I mean.

If Romney wins we are def in Iran by 2014, sooner if the economy keeps plodding along.

The other thing I cannot wait to see is all these rightwingers defending a stimulis in 2013, cause that is definitely coming too.
