LOL! a Tea Partier who thinks he's intelligent...
The funny part is that the Boston Tea Party was in protest to the unfair representation that corporations (specifically, the East Indies Company) had with the government - and that those are EXACTLY the same practices the current Tea Party sponsors are $spending million$ to expand.

We have a president who ran a small and negative campaign with no record to run on, no plan for the next four years but big on lies and smearing his opponent.
We have a president who does not reach across the aisle, characterizes half the nation as being un-American, encourages his base to vote out of revenge and hides from the press.
We have a president who believes he can spend our way out of an already insurmountable debt, who wants as many people dependent on taxpayers as possible and taking even more of our money come January 1.
We have a president who promised to be more flexible with Russia, who doesn't call radical Islam terrorists and who sees Europe's crumbling social democracy system as the model for this nation.
We have a president who will continue to conquer and divide, who warms up to celebrities and elitists but thinks job makers are the real problem.
The easily fooled and haters voted this president back into office. Because of them, we have turned the corner and are on a path from which we may never recover.
Because of them, we will have four more years of high unemployment, gridlock and, eventually, a third world health system.
Because of them, more manufacturers will leave this country, more hardworking people will lose their incentive to try and do better and more job opportunities will become a thing of the past.
Because of them, I don't recognize my country any longer.
For now, the rest of us can only go on with our lives, hope for the best, expect the worst and try to survive another four years.
I truly believe God has washed his hands of us. Many who reelected this president voted Him out of their party.
We have lost our bearings and, therefore, we cannot expect to be blessed.
So basically I'm done. I'm taking my purse and going home.
But we will reap what we have sown. That's the law of nature mandated by God.
Perhaps it has already begun. We will know soon enough. I hope those on the left will not live to regret what they have done because what they have done will affect us all.
Your stupid ass ideas are EXACTLY why you Rightwingers lost last night. STFU and go hang yourself.

OK, Dickweed. You and the rest of the liberal Socialist idiots "won".
Years from now when the economy STILL sucks, unemployment is STILL around 8%, you and the rest of the parasites CAN'T BLAME CONSERVATIVES.
I don't know how much more obvious a situation has to be before you dolts figure out SOCIALISM DOESN'T WORK, but maybe after four more years of unemployment around 8%, deficits in the trillions, and chaos in the world, maybe you can SHUT THE FUKK UP.
In the meantime, the rest of the conservatives and I will figure out how to hide our assets from you parasites. See, you and the rest of the leeches thought it was open season on the Evil Rich guy four years ago. You don't get it: we're smarter than you are (that's why we have the money), and we'll find a way to keep it from you.
Have fun. Enjoy four more years of squalor. I have some banking to do.
I have news.

The idea that Bush & the Republicans took over the White House on Jan of 2001 with a balanced budget & surplus & left the White House 8 years later with the worst recession in 80 years, a near financial meltdown, a housing collapse, and two quagmire wars is written in stone.

All the whining, lying, & dishonesty you have will not, will not change it.

BTW, Obama will likely win Florida.
Central Florida left it's blue mark__Orange and Osceola Counties solidly Obama, Young voters galore in the lines some waiting four hours and more to cast their first votes. Good news is that Grayson is on his way back to Washington with the promise of getting involved in healthcare and veterans rights. Nelson whooped Connie Mack and will return for a third term to the US Senate.

Lake County, home of Thee Villages went big time for Mitt, fkn dummies voted against themselves as usual.

In Sofla, Colonel West was kicked to the curb__good riddance. And finally Florida's (R) speaker of the house is currently coming up short in a recount__this is the mutt that replaced Rubio in that role and may get the broom LMAO.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
Sound familiar? This is actually the first post in this forum from Nov. 5, 2008
I give you credit for being brave enough to show up after you loss. Many of your fellow wingnuts proved how cowardly they are.

You really need to stop beating a dead horse.

Obama won. There's nothing you can do about it.

You were wrong.

Things to listen for in the near-future:

"I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will…er…execute the office of President of the United States faithfully… Aw, Roberts, you still don’t know how it goes??? I told you to write it down! Ruth, would you come up here and take over?"

"Senator Elizabeth Warren has proven to be a real thorn in the Republicans' side…"

"Democrats reformed Senate rules today that will put an end to Republican abuse of the filibuster…"

"President Obama signed the DREAM Act into law in a Rose Garden ceremony…"

"Hillary Clinton's replacement comes with strong foreign policy credentials and a sterling reputation around the globe…"

"Tim Geithner's replacement is getting rave reviews for not being Tim Geithner."

"Republicans are having a tough time finding something to impeach the president over, but Congressman Issa vows to keep trying. Hearings on the President's old parking tickets begin today."

"Mourdock! It's Joe Donnelly calling. Hey, what's your address? I'm sending over a helluva thank-you gift, buddy!"

"Akin! It's Claire McCaskill calling. Hey, what's your address? I'm sending over a helluva thank-you gift, buddy!"

"By the power vested in me by the state of [Maryland][Maine][Washington state], I now pronounce you lawfully married spouses. Congratulations [guys][ladies]."

"No, ex-Congressman West, you're saying it wrong. It's 'Would you like fries with that,' not 'Are you a communist sympathizer.' Ex-congressman Walsh, would you please show him how to do it?"

"Sorry, Mr. Romney. It's a short-circuit somewhere, so you're gonna be stuck in that car elevator for a while. We'll throw you down some cheesy grits so you don't starve."

Mostly, you've seen replies to posters like carol and independentmajority who have been posting the same FOX and Brietbart fed boo-hoo wah-wah for 4 years. Without the incessant spewing of the birthers, tea partiers, fundies and bigots, these threads would have 1/4 the participation they do.
