Obama is a sham. Stupid people who have no work ethic voted for this charlatan a second time! That's what's incredible. How stupid can they be. The future for the next four years is hopelss with this imbecile in charge. We can do nothing now but watch as our country disintegrates because we have this POS in charge.

Obama is a lying con-artist and all of his supporters are stupid and as bad as he is. He is a lazy no-good bum and just wait...he'll be off golfing and playing basketball just like he did for the last four years.
He and that creep of a family of his planned to do nothing but mooch and steal all they could for as long as they could. They will always be the most disliked and disrespected First Family EVER and those ugly daughters will not be wanted anywhere they go as they have to buy friendships and are racist haters just like their mooching grandmother, uncle and parents. Those people just gave me the creeps the minute I laid eyes on them four years ago and it gets worse every time I see them.
Those girls sure look hard for their ages...more like 30 and 40 years so one has to wonder just what drugs they've been in and how much sex they've had as that seems to be all that has been on their minds. Those kids are only 13 and 11 years old; something is very very wrong in that household.
Jeez, did you talk like this about Chelsea Clinton, too? It's in very poor taste to bring children into the mudslinging, fella. But of course, you already knew that.

Most of the time, electors cast their votes for the candidate who has received the most votes in that particular state. Some states have laws that require electors to vote for the candidate that won the popular vote, while other electors are bound by pledges to a specific political party. However, there have been times when electors have voted contrary to the people's decision, and there is no federal law or Constitutional provision against it.
Obama has the electoral votes (55) in CA but the popular votes are only 31.1% reported. Go figure.

It's not just America that will weaken. So to will allies. Your allies now have to fear a nuclear Iran as the US with that whimp in charge again won't lay down the law.
Barack may be good at sweet talking the public over there but he Shy's away from the world media, taking the back seat so to speak when important world issues have arisen. He has kind of pulled America out of the limelight. I used to love how America stood up for the world and all those good nations but now America is taking the back seat so to speak.
China will continue to deprive the US of economic income.
Barack will still insist there is still plenty of time for dialect with Iran on nuclear arms. He's all talk and no action.
Us is now officially a Black nation.
Congratz to all US voters, you've reelected soft leader.
Ha Ha Ha America is stronger than ever militarily. Obama is here Bin Laden is gone. Beware Iran Obama speaks softly but carries a big stick.

No matter who wins this election. The country needs to support the winner... not like the republicans did in 2008...
Obama or Romney he is the President of all of us and he is an American..
If your an American you will support the winner.We all must demand congress work together to decide the best way forward with the best ideas of both sides....
The Republicans still control the House. They are the bulwark of defense against the Boy Messiah for our country and its future. They will remain solid against the Jerk-In-Chief until the sun rises four years from now. Millions are counting on them.

Well done America you can now look forward to a future with

A Nuclear Iran and a more dangerous world
Economic turmoil
Higher unemployment
Increased energy prices
More and more people dependent on hand outs
Etc,etc,etc.

No longer will you be the dominant super power, America will aoon be unrecognisable and more than likely irreversibly so. You've helped Obama 'fundamentally' change your great country and in turn strengthen our enemies.

Now that the blamer-in-chief has stolen another election, America can get back to the investigation of Benghazigate and begin the impeachment process. The only real question will be whether to charge Obama with contributory negligence or accessory to murder. The families if the victims of the Embassy massacre deserve answers and they deserve justice.

Why are you celebrating? Nothings gunna change. I don't figure ghetto crime will stop. I doubt the number of high school dropouts will get any better. Same with securing the border. The middle class will still shrink away and I doubt food or gas prices will drop.

Nothing been done, or will be, regarding Gov't Employee Unions that are unsustainable and will end up collapsing on itself.(the next crisis)
The separation between the Government and the People are too great,,as are the people themselves.

I'm sure your gloating about that blackman winning, lol, putting whitey in his place....once again, lol.
A product of the 60's black power/black muslim movement in college,even better!!!

Nuclear Iran will balance the Middle East . After all we all know Iranians are much more civilized than Pakis .

Obama won't throw our boys in another conflict in Israels' name

Good luck with that.

Bush got 3000 citizens killed on our own soil, and I have yet to hear of him apologizing, much less being indicted, for that.

I'd say that was plenty of precedent.

The death toll from Obama's Katrina rose to 120 while the blamer-in-chief played basketball. He should celebrate his slim victory while he can. Soon he will have to answer for his arrogance and incompetence during this national disaster. If America is lucky, this charlatan will be impeached long before his second term is finished.

If they did the right f..g thing you might have had Mitt in the whitehouse but because of bringing their own twisted tea party logic into play and stopping government from functioning altogether is why you were punished at the ballot box. If you let a few policies through and if you are so confident they will fail then its an easy path to government next time. But what do you Einsteins do, say NO to everything which also means the voters don't view you as having any credibility at all. The red states will always remain red states but it doesn't mean they are in a different country.
