The one thing that that could use some tweaking in the US voting process sometimes-the "electoral college", because it's kind funny when over HALF the US votes their choice of candidates, but a flaw in the process decides otherwise.
To the electoral winner goes the spoils...but AMERICAS choice was loud and clear.

ROMNEY/RYAN 2012-painted the country REAL leadership red-
Already working FOR America-NOT against it!

Now, getting back to "four years of hopelessness and no change"..HOPE: Mrs. Clinton, we HOPE you consult with Mr Romney et al, for AFFORDABLE healthcare for everyone (NOT fweerider DUHM) for YOU ARE indeed, the champion of healthcare for children of the working class poor! Mr Bill Clinton, plz aid the current DUHMMIES, in how to live on a B-U-D-G-E-T, and how to keep it balanced, for YOU sir, are to be respected for that ability of FACT. Mr. Ryan seems VERY capable and competent in doing so.
Uncle Joe-please continue to keep our families SAFE, and FIRE the ones that neglect to do so and put them in harms way (pecially the WTH we doing in Libya and AZ getting sued by States own for just trying to PROTECT itself type stuff).

Republicans-kick OUT of the way-- whatever it is that is supressing the economy, so people may have JOBS and get this economy moving again, just do so realistically and with consideration for all of AMERICA. Also keep in mind--People that work in minimum wage jobs (and there are MANY) CANNOT afford current free market healthcare prices. Ask Mr Romney!!!!!!!!!!
All other; democrats-just because you have D labels by your namesplates-does NOT mean you have to act like CommieTICS, or sit back and allow for ANYONE else to act like a commieTIC!! NO NEW PAYROLL TAXES and/or FINES=on the WORKING class poor. WE pay enough (TOO MUCH) already!!!! And SHAME on you if you do--this is AMERICA-NOT (is that yew Mr Reagan???) Russia or China!!!!!!!!!!
FED sales tax 'em ALL-from ladder rung A through ladder rung Z--that's the ONLY FAIR and Balanced way!
UNdeserving, UNentitled, Freeriding slacerTICS, baby mama welfare moraless trollups-unwanted pregnancy PREVENTION has been nearly FREE for THIRTY YEARS--there's NO EXCUSE, so STFU about and STOP WASTING government tax payer TIME with your STUPIDITY and IGNORANCE. The robbinghoodieTICing OUT of other peoples pockets, w/out contributing anything but WHINEDUHM--days are numbered, because sooner or later, that fweeride sytem you've hopped aboard with no shame-WILL go broke, especially if America doesn't take a new direction soon.

At least HALF of America KNOWS, who REALLY walks right, and who doesn't. HALLELUJIA!!
Now-get to WORK (for a CHANGE)-because THAT is what built THIS nation!!
(and that includes Mr Potus-WE the WORKING CLASS PEOPLE, are waiting-don't worry about the safety nets--they already have thiers!!)

And you ghetto/gutter ignorant kindergraten level HATERTIC sick in the head types-STFU-America is beyond SICK and tired of your WHINEDUHMness!!!!

The T(Axed) E(nough) A(lready drained dry) Party-HERE TO STAY!!

GOD BLESS AMERICA, our troops, the CONSTITUTION, and TERM LIMITS on the office of POTUS!!!
Fu ck you Dick Morris Karl Rove minion!

Obama won electoral college and popular vote. Go beat your meat to Faux News (fair and biased) where America turns to be (MIS) INFORMED.

Hannity and Rush will coach you on how to properly fondle your nutsack while you wonder what might have been...

You lost, your tea bagger zealots ruined the brand. Deal with it and YOU SHUT THE FU CK UP CHUMP!

The Long Shadow of the Bush Era

..... if the public had much confidence in Republican leadership to conduct foreign policy responsibly or act as competent stewards of the economy the party’s demographic woes would be substantially alleviated. The GOP is failing to win adherents outside of its core constituencies, but a key reason for this is that it has proven itself manifestly unfit for government. The Bush era was a disaster for the Republican Party, and it isn’t going to be able to recover until it recognizes this, repudiates the failures of that era, and demonstrates that it has learned from the experience. If it can repair the damage that Bush-era Republicans did to the party’s reputation on managing foreign policy and the economy, it might be given a second chance and receive a hearing from people who have learned to distrust its representatives.

It’s Over; The Republican Party Hasn’t Recovered From Bush

....in reality the more pressing problem is that Republicans are still a party badly damaged by the George W. Bush years. The GOP has traditionally held huge advantages on foreign policy and the economy. That advantage is gone now. And Mitt Romney was the wrong candidate to give the party a refresh on those issues, particularly when the gettable voters were downscale whites. It isn’t that Republicans aren’t reaching enough voters; voters simply don’t believe the GOP is competent to govern.

Forget about the election! Start concentrating on the real problems this country faces...

Ask yourself why the dollar has lost 95% of it's value since the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913. Once you learn the answer you will realize that we are all serfs.

Do you even know what the U6 unemployment rate is? Look that one up and you'll realize we're all being lied to about our unemployment rate.

Do you believe Washington when they tell you there is no inflation? Is that how it feels when you go shopping for groceries? They don't even use Food and Energy when they calculate the CPI.

Either address these sorts of deeper issues or watch America decline.

Fox News Slowly Loses Its Mind Over Election Results

When Fox News called the election for Barack Obama just before 11:30 p.m., it was the culmination of a night-long sigh by the right-wing network, capped off with a climactic hissy fit steeped in denial, courtesy of Karl Rove. The polls didn't look good going into the day, but the channel's well-manicured hosts put on a happy face and crossed their fingers, as they have for weeks now, kicking off Election Night with similar refrains of hope and favorable Internal polling from the Romney campaign, plus predictable mentions of unemployment, Libya, and paths to a win without Ohio. But the excuses started early and then things got weird.

"The white establishment is now the minority," said a resigned-sounding Bill O'Reilly, long before any swing state had been decided. "And the voters, many of them, feel that the economic system is stacked against them and they want stuff."

"The demographics are changing," he added. "It's not a traditional America anymore."

O'Reilly also cited Hurricane Sandy as a reason Romney might possibly, maybe lose the election. "If Obama wins, Sandy will have something to do with it," he predicted. "He got more currency from Sandy than he got negative currency from Libya. That to me is amazing." But O'Reilly did verbalize the elephant in the room: "If Mitt Romney loses Ohio, the president is reelected," he dropped with a thud.

Later, plugging the religious vote, Mike Huckabee wasn't so sure. "Chick-fil-A day was dress rehearsal for today," he said. "I still think Mitt Romney wins when it's all over."

But as the states started to fall — Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota — Romney's path to a win was described as a "tightrope," and the mood soured noticeably. Outright predictions gave way to minute dissections of specific counties as anchors Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier seemed to brace for the inevitable.

And then went Ohio, and with it, the election — and Karl Rove's mind. "We have got to be careful about calling things when we have like 991 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote yet to count," he said, questioning the network that signs his checks and calling the decision "premature." Kelly quipped, "That's awkward," and then proceeded to march — in an equally awkward scene — away from her desk and into the bowels of the studio to the number-crunching Decision Desk. "We're actually quite comfortable with the call in Ohio," one man said, and you could practically hear Rove's curdled cries in the distance. "There just aren't enough Republican votes left for Mitt Romney to get there," another added.

Live from Chicago, where the Obama crowd was losing it, Ed Henry managed to get in another, though it went tumbling into the abyss: "They're almost nearing pandemonium now," he said, "despite that unemployment is still hovering near 8 percent." It wasn't the end of the network's bitter mix of denial and rationalization for the night, but it might as well have been.

The Republicans lost the Presidency because they thought all voters were as stupid as their base. They tried to blame the effects of the recession on Obama & people knew better.

Now its time for the Republicans in the House to decide whether they will try to continue their obstruction & try to hold us back or actually join in our recovery.

Their Obstruction was a miserable failure.

The American people told the Republicans to shove their social engineering up their ass & do something to help us recover from their disaster of the Bush years.

The Republicans need to discard their Grover Norquist pledges & pledge instead to the people of the Untited States of America,

f*ck Grover Norquist. F*ck the Tea Party. It is time to become real patriots & real Americans & do what it takes to get us back to where we were before Bush f*cked this country.

Hey, I'm happy for Obama, it's hard to go into a job unexperienced and do any kind of good.

He's had four years of on the job training now though-so this time-there's NO EXCUSE for the lousy everything of the past four years.

Tough luck for you phat crayon, partisian, lemming herd pack ignorant types on the Congressional stuff though-deal with it. THAT'S REALITY.

I SAY---GOOD luck and best wishes MR POTUS, you will need some no doubt. May you garner some actual wisdom and realize, acting like a sane, rational adult, rather than a strong arm Dictator, will certainly serve you, and ALL of America-MUCH, much better.

And to YOU, whom ever you are--I SAY--your OWN hate-is why ones that post like YOU, will NEVER win. Put THAT in your HATER crackedhead MENTALity pipe-and smoke it.

I can pat myself on the back--because I vote for For LOVE-- of Country, family and all the RIGHT ways as I walk on this earth. To HELL with anything else.

GOD BLESS AMERICA, our troops, the CONSTITUTION, and TERM LIMITS for the office of POTUS, because this is AMERICA-NOT some dictorial CommieTIC country!

That Karl Rove business on Fox was priceless. It’s an astonishing thing, that the numbers specialists at Fox called Ohio for Obama, and the on-air talent questioned it. And not just an anchor—an on-air commentator who has also raised and spent many millions of dollars on behalf of Romney. It’s as banana republic as anything that happens in a real banana republican.
