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 don't dislike Obama because he's black. Some of my best friends know black people. I dislike him because he's an arrogant, incompetent piss-poor excuse for a president.

Quit being such a crybaby, republicans who spent the last 4 years f'ing up our country just to try and make Obama a one term president are exactly the reason Romney didn't get voted in.
Romney didn't get voted in because, well to put it bluntly, there wasn't really a whole lot there to work with. I'm no big fan of Romney. I just considered him to be the lesser of two evils. Neither the Republican Party or Democratic Party has anybody that I would consider great presidential material. Sadly, I think the days of great statesmen are long gone. Maybe another one will pop up somewhere, some day.

obama won because every dumbass black person who never voted before came out simply because Obama is black. John Kerry ran on the same principles as Obama and Bush won by alot..where were all the blacks then?? Now go get your Obama phone!!
Blacks didn't win it for Obama. There just aren't enough old White folks with canes and walkers to carry the GOP to victory anymore. Keep whining.

Remember libs, only half of Americans voted for Obama. Considering all the support he got from the press, TV news outlets, celebrities, etc. that's actually pretty bad. If he was so great, he should have won by far more than 50%, don't you think?

The only 'truth' from Romney was revealed at his fund raiser in Boca, where he was captured on video, dissing roughly 150 million Americans (47%).

I believe this statement sealed the re-election.

This cavalcade of distortion and lies from the GOP lost the election for them. They counted on voter ignorance and apathy... Epic Fail

Irony
The 47%, promptly responded to Sandy,
Saved lives, and rejected Mitt outright.

He'll still blame Bush. "It takes more than four years to fix what it took my predecessor eight years to destroy."

what did Obama really win? A 16 trillion dollar deficit that he will not be able to diminish in the next 4 years which means it will grow to over 20 trillion dollars in the hole by the time Obama is done destroying this country. And what did those who voted for Obama really win? A pack of lies, higher taxes, more welfare receipients, more homelessness, more threats on American soil, a failed auto industry, bankruptcy everywhere, more loans from China and other countries and when 2016 arrives, USA will be a thrid world country under a third world dictator. For all of those who did not vote for Obama, pat yourselves on the back.

I'm sure the Kenyans are very excited. How often can people say that somebody from their country became the leader of the free world.

The wave of consumer confidence, unemployment going down, Dow going up, new housing uptick, manufacturing uptick, consecutive month job growth.

All you coo coos saying Obama inherited his own mess? It's only gonna get better and I'm damn glad Rmoney won't get credit for it!

The republican brand is in shambles. It will be many years to get them out of it. They will lose more seats in 2014 and 16.

Sad wave for the party that the tea baggers brought down...

Guess I'll turn to Faux News and revel in their tears!

BAHAHAHA!!!
