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.

My daughter decided that if you can't beat them, you join them. She figures that she will just quit looking for a decent job, sign up for welfare tomorrow, and let the government pay her to do nothing for the next 4 years.
She's been on welfare since the Bush Administration, with her six illegimate mixed race kids!!

Deal with it, Nobraina!!

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.
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.

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.

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 :)

Who is he kidding? Besides Jane Fonda and Hillary Clinton, Moochelle Obama is probably the most hated woman in America.
