In April Ted Nugent said if Obama was re-elected he (TN) would be dead or in jail in one year. Looking forward to next April!

I don't live in New York or New Jersey so now that the election is over I can read up on what's going on and try to help them by fundraising and doing charity work
What exactly was that something?

That's what I've been saying about Mitt all along - and so did MASSACHUSETTS.
Trump, Cain, Romney (two Romney's) and everyone's favorite little Ross Perot__everyone of them impatient angle shooters with no respect for policy, regulation or laws.

In the USA it's easier to buy a politician than to become one__why would a guy with mega bucks want to put himself at the risk of looking stupid???

Whatever happened to Herman Cain? Wasn't he going to bring his 999 legacy to the people__Hah, it wasn't even his but created by some mutt with a associates degree in economics from WBFE Community College.

In conservative fantasy-land, Richard Nixon was a champion of ideological conservatism, tax cuts are the only way to raise revenue, adding neoconservatives to a foreign-policy team reassures American voters, Benghazi was a winning campaign issue, Clint Eastwood's convention speech was a brilliant triumph, and Obama's America is a place where black kids can beat up white kids with impunity. Most conservative pundits know better than this nonsense -- not that they speak up against it. They see criticizing their own side as a sign of disloyalty. I see a coalition that has lost all perspective, partly because there's no cost to broadcasting or publishing inane bullshit. In fact, it's often very profitable. A lot of cynical people have gotten rich broadcasting and publishing red meat for movement conservative consumption.
On the biggest political story of the year, the conservative media just got its ass handed to it by the mainstream media. And movement conservatives, who believe the MSM is more biased and less rigorous than their alternatives, have no way to explain how their trusted outlets got it wrong, while the New York Times got it right. Hint: The Times hired the most rigorous forecaster it could find.
It ought to be an eye-opening moment.
But I expect that it'll be quickly forgotten, that none of the conservatives who touted a polling conspiracy will be discredited, and that the right will continue to operate at an information disadvantage. After all, it's not like they'll trust the analysis of a non-conservative like me more than the numerous fellow conservatives who constantly tell them things that turn out not to be true.
Well don't tell Carol - she'd implode.

Don't wanna see you in a death camp.
When 30 million uninsured are added to the government teet and small businesses drop their employees' health benefits like hot potatoes adding God knows how many more to the government teet, hospitals and clinics are going to seem like death camps. Your wallet is going to be empty affording to pay for them all.

Good job there, dem. Your vote will come back to haunt you.

I don't call a black the N world, because any race can be called that.
I don't hate black people, they hate the whites of today, and we had nothing to do with what happen to their people a long time ago. The Bible tells us to not dwell on the best. If blacks would not dwell on this, we would all be better fo it. it is like the Demonbrats putting all the blame on Bush for years to come, and he hasn't been in office for years. We are talking of today not of yesterday. Obama says to go FORWARD, but how can the blacks really do this, when they spend all their time in the past?
There must be no history books in your fantasy world.

OI have news. The Great Recession of 2008 belongs to Bush FOREVER.

And perhaps his name would not come up so often of idiots like you did not blame Obama for the effects of that Bush recession.

Studies have shown that racism of the white against the black has grown in this country & I suspect it has a lot to do with the far right & the Tea Party.

Now you can try to blame blacks for that all you want, it just proves my point.

The suicide rate has gone up 1.1% under Obama and the CDC says suicides spike during an economic recession. That works out to about 3300 more suicides a year and I have yet to hear Obama apologizing for those 13000 dead Americans.
No. They're Bush/Cheney suicides--unless Dick shoots someone else in the face. " The suicide rate among the nationís active-duty military personnel has spiked this year, eclipsing the number of troops dying in battle and on pace to set a record annual high since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan more than a decade ago, the Pentagon said Friday.

Suicides have increased even as the United States military has withdrawn from Iraq and stepped up efforts to provide mental health, drug and alcohol, and financial counseling services.

The military said Friday that there had been 154 suicides among active-duty troops through Thursday, a rate of nearly one each day this year. The figures were first reported this week by The Associated Press.

That number represents an 18 percent increase over the 130 active-duty military suicides for the same period in 2011. There were 123 suicides from January to early June in 2010, and 133 during that period in 2009, the Pentagon said."

I love it.
The Republicans try to legislate abortion & who you can marry & the right whiner here blames the Democrats.
You people are really pathetic. No wonder you lost the election.

Meanwhile 23 million people are unemployed or underemployed including pro choicers and gays and the Dow is down 312 points.

Lemmings line up in size places and no pushing .The cliff is wide enough for all of you.

Let's see ..last week We had Barack Obama as president with a Democratic Senate and a Republican House. Now we have Barack Obama as president with a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.
Sounds like gridlock to me with the House trying to take away the president' charge card which he needs to buy goodies for all his admirers and special interest groups that he is beholden to.
But you dipppppschiiiittttts said you were going to win.


got no extra seats: in fact lost a few.

I base mine on who I thought would do a better job. Yes, Romney is white, who in the hell cares? The guy could be purple for all I care. There is such a thing as right and wrong, and abortion in the eyes of God is wrong, but I did not base my vote on the fact that the dude is white, and to get a white President, nor did I base it just on gay marriage being pass. You can't stop the wags from shacking up together, and what they do behind their close doors is their business, but I do not see why they want a marriage, when God is not for that, and will not bless their marriage anyway. I don't see why they have to vote on such a thing, when there is more important things to worry about than this, and want to push their pervertness on the ones that are trying to live and do the right thing.

The nation is still divided and four more years means four more years of misery for the middle class. Forward, yes, better, no.

The Americans who voted for Obama and suffer, they deserve it this time.

I'm actually happy because the outcome benefited me in a neat way, but I know the Democrats are not good stewards of our kids in many ways.

Congrats libtards!

It is arithmetic Melvin and they is right.$4 billion a day is $120 billion in 30 days. Now common sense will tell you that if you took all the wealthy's everything, those worth a million or more, it wouldn't add up to much more than that. I haven't looked it up but I think most of the money is under a million dollars by shear numbers alone.
