It is great to see how willing Obama and his minions is to "reach out" in the heat of victory. Do you guys "outreach" consist mainly of threatening to riot, call everybody else a "racist" and then expect everybody else to be your suggar daddies?

Obama-Democrat, Filibuster-vulnerable democrat senate and a RINO congress will at least ensure SOME gridlock. However, the Supreme court is still in liberal hands so most state laws can be declared "uncostitutional" any time by another judge.

Laugh and have fun now losers, hehe. The hangover will be hard, but then again, if you drink all the time, you should not notice it in any case ;)

One of the few things Romney said that made sense was that he did not see a point in trying to make 47% vote for him. So true. A coalition of lazy bums, crony corporatists, trial lawyers and abortion fanatics is enough to push the total above 50%.

Agree with most of the others here. The Republican party is pretty much dead now. All they can do is to hold on to congress as long as possible, but after that, it's all over.

Thanks to the Republicans for treating the only sane candidate in their primary like a pariah. I gave the thanks to Gary :)

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.
I especially like that the TP lost their nastiest and most divisive voices when Joe Walsh and Allen West went down.

Kind of reaffirmed my faith in America. Might say it's the first time I've been proud of America!!

We can put a stake in the heart of the Teabaggers. They officially died on Nov. 6, 2012.

How the pollsters won the 2012 US election, mostly

It was a good night for most polling organizations; aggregators got it close to perfect. For the 'unskewed' crowd, not so much

My advice to anyone wanting to dig into the numbers is fairly simple: trust the polls. I learned this lesson in 2004, and I hold onto it now. Most pollsters have degrees in statistics; they've been doing this stuff for a long time. They aren't infallible, but there is a reason why major news organizations hire them. Pollsters for the most part know what they are doing. Chances are that they know more than you do.

Still, there are some pollsters who are going to have to go back to the drawing board after this election. Last week, I wrote about how Public Policy Polling and Rasmussen differed on the winner in Colorado, Florida, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia. Rasmussen eventually found a shift in New Hampshire towards the president and a tie in Ohio. In all five cases, it seems that Public Policy Polling (PPP) had the correct winner all along. They continue a fine record of polling, despite a Democratic affiliation.

This marks the second election cycle in a row, however, in which Rasmussen has shown a serious Republican bias. They also were right-leaning in their 2008 state polls. That's a far fall for a pollster who was so accurate in 2004 and 2006.

This s why you are stupid & why the Tea Party is not anything but stupid racists.

You had a balanced budget, moron.

You had it until Bush & Paul Ryan & the Republicans voted to take us off that path.

So if you are really about balanced budgets, you would not vote Republican.

Hence, why you and the Tea Party are morons.

Eh, that's according to how detailed you want to go when forming opinion.
Over all picture, it's 2012, and SUPERPACS have made the scene. What's fair is fair, gotta go with the current. Beats being perpetually stuck in the dark ages of pitch fork and torch carrying of the mobs ignorance of hedonists, anarchists and morons just strong arming a couple of honest working people on the other.
But thank you, you'll just have over look the intelligence LOL.
TEA! GOD Bless America!
Yep, the superPACs made the scene again, but it isn't "what's fair is fair", it's "what's unfair was countered with unfair". We weren't in the dark ages before the Supreme Court ruling created a hideous mockery of honest campaign finance, but there's no guarantee we can't return to workhouses and poor farms.

A proposed change to Minnesota's constitution that would have required photo identification in order to vote was rejected at the ballot Tuesday.

The amendment finished with the support of 46 percent of Minnesota voters. Fifty-two percent voted against the measure.

The defeat of the amendment, which was passed by the state's Republican-controlled legislature in 2011, defies much of the pre-Election Day polling that indicated it was a favorite to pass.

Come on, why would he do such a thing? DO you think the people on this site the last hours are interested in any "healing"? I bet you most of these people here would burn any "teabagger" alive after ripping their entire skin off first if they could.

When the party is about to end and some takers are going to demand more goodies, but when the dollar drops furthermore and the plastic bag full of dollars get stolen and the money left, you guys can keep on calling everybody else ridiculous names while threatening violence and spitting everybody else in the face, we will see.

If we don’t make a drastic shift in this nation, I believe there's no way to escape God’s judgment. Billy Graham’s wife once said,“If God doesn’t judge America He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” I never wanted to believe that. But now I do. I can see it. God has removed His hand of protection at times because He loves us and hopes we’ll wake up. Clearly, we haven't woken up yet.

There is a great awakening coming to this nation. For I have heard your cries and I long to heal your land. I am a covenant God and I will not forget the covenant I made with your Founding Forefathers. Yes, there will be a shaking, but the foundations will not crack and they will not crumble. Only those things which can be shaken will be shaken that the sin in the land may be laid bare.

Repentance. I require repentance from My people who have through the generations allowed the enemy to take ground in this nation. I require repentance for the abortions and for the prayerlessness. I require repentance for the apathy and for the idolatry. You shall have no other Gods before me. I am indeed the God of America.

Yes, there is a great awakening coming to this nation. I am the Author of it and I will bring it to pass. Just turn from your wicked ways and humble yourselves. Stand in the gap and make up the hedge. I am the Lord and I am a Warrior. I will not leave or forsake this country. I will fight through you and with you to regain what has been lost.

There's no consensus that happy days are here again, but the nation's mood is considerably better than it was four years ago. Then, the nation was spiraling into the fiscal crisis.

In 2008, only 7% said the economy was excellent or good; now that number has tripled. Then, almost half said the economy was poor; now a third say that. Four years ago, only one in five said "things in this country are generally going in the right direction."

stop saying that things are so much worst then 4 years ago.
