If Obama was a decent and civilized man, or a man period, he would concede defeat early. But whether he accepts the fact that he has been beaten or not. I will go to bed early tonight knowing that he now have a president and that Queen Obama is OUT.

That's my good Obamabot! Talk is cheap. I said I would work across the isle, but then as soon as I took office, I subverted the legislative and constitutional process. It's like the other day when I was talking about the storm, I said, we don't leave anyone behind. It tool a lot of balls for me to say that when I just left four people in Libya to die.
But that's OK. We are Democrats. We can say crap without meaning it at all. We can lie if the ends justify the means.
Viote for me so we all can have a lower standard of living and continue with America in decline.
Thanks for beiong one of my craziest supportes. It lasted only four years but we sure did a lot of damage and got some revenge.

You forgot baketball!!!!!

Obama, who voted 12 days early, was sure to observe his Election Day ritual of playing pickup basketball with friends and close advisers. The one time he skipped the tradition, he lost the New Hampshire primary in 2008. "We won't make that mistake again," said senior adviser Robert Gibbs.

Obama focused on Wisconsin, Ohio and Iowa, the three Midwestern swing states that, barring surprises elsewhere, would insure that he reaches the 270 electoral votes needed to win. Romney visited the must-win states of Florida, Virginia and Ohio before finishing in New Hampshire, where he launched his presidential run in June 2011.

Romney's final day included stops in Florida, Virginia, Ohio and New Hampshire. The former governor of Massachusetts ended Monday at a raucous "Final Victory" rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, the city where he launched his campaign last year.

"We're one day away from a fresh start. We're one day away from a new beginning," the candidate, sounding hoarse at his fifth rally of the day, told the crowd of 12,000 at a sports arena in the center of the city.

Obama ridiculed Romney's claims to be the candidate of change and said the challenger would be a rubber stamp for a conservative Tea Party agenda.....

"The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and these are ignorance, superstition and incompetence."
Elbert Hubbard

KENTUCKY-votin' ROMNEY, and JOBS again-- for POTUS!

Birdbrains of a flock, shyt messes in a flock..or something like that :-).

Some "history" of Gadsden Flag-courtesy of the T(AXED) E(NOUGH) A(LREADY drained dry) Party--

In December 1775, "An American Guesser" anonymously wrote to the Pennsylvania Journal:

"I observed on one of the drums belonging to the marines now raising, there was painted a Rattle-Snake, with this modest motto under it,'Don't tread on me.' As I know it is the custom to have some device on the arms of every country, I supposed this may have been intended for the arms of America."

This anonymous writer, having "nothing to do with public affairs" and "in order to divert an idle hour," speculated on why a snake might be chosen as a symbol for America.

First, it occurred to him that "the Rattle-Snake is found in no other quarter of the world besides America."

The rattlesnake also has sharp eyes, and "may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance." Furthermore,

"She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.... she never wounds 'till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her."

Finally,

"I confess I was wholly at a loss what to make of the rattles,'till I went back and counted them and found them just thirteen, exactly the number of the Colonies united in America; and I recollected too that this was the only part of the Snake which increased in numbers....

"'Tis curious and amazing to observe how distinct and independent of each other the rattles of this animal are, and yet how firmly they are united together, so as never to be separated but by breaking them to pieces. One of those rattles singly, is incapable of producing sound, but the ringing of thirteen together, is sufficient to alarm the boldest man living."

Franklin portrait

Many scholars now agree that this "American Guesser" was Benjamin Franklin.

Franklin is also known for opposing the use of an eagle "a bird of bad moral character" as a national symbol .

55 electorates for one state is something that reps.

Yes, because even though everyone has said it is too close to call, Obama should just give up. Brilliant!!! Why didn't I think of that? Oh, it's because I have an I.Q. higher than 60, that's why.

What were you trying to say with that last sentence? I see it as Idiots for Wrongney!

Pittsburg?

Manufacturing lost 1,400 jobs in the region during September, which Fertenbaugh said was a bit unusual. There was no specific reason listed as to why the jobs, all in durable goods, were lost. The construction sector lost 700 jobs in September and is down 3,800 compared to September 2011. Professional/technical jobs are also down by 1,600 compared to August 2012.

The region's lowest unemployment rate in September was in Butler County, at 6.5 percent. That was down from 6.7 percent in August. The highest unemployment rate in the region was Fayette County's 9.5 percent, which was up one-tenth of a percentage point from August.

1941 (aka as a "Great Depression" year)unemployment rate-

9.66

No wonder though-the kindergarten mentality level plague has probably sucked sucked the life out of people there as well.
