What we passed up yesterday became very evident in Romney's concession speech.
Not only did he continue to stay upbeat and positive but conservatives in the audience clapped when he said he would continue to pray for the president, his wife and two lovely daughters.
That's what we passed up.
Liberals would have been burning something to the ground.
Your guys lost?

So?

America better!

They're showing a picture on Fox News of Shakema and Laquisha or whatever their names are standing next to their mammy Moochelle. One thing for sure, they certainly did inherit their mammy's fat ass. They need to get on one of their mammy's government mandated sugar-free diet programs. Not a hateful comment, just an observation.

Who passed it up, I watched and listened, he was very gracious.

How about you rightwingers try not passing up this part, time to get in the game -

"The nation, as you know, is at a critical point. At a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work, and we citizens also have to rise to occasion. We look to our teachers and professors. We count on you not just to teach, but to inspire our children with a passion for learning and discovery. We look to our pastors and priests and rabbis and counselors of all kinds to testify of the enduring principles upon which our society is built: Honesty, charity, integrity, and family. We look to our parents. Fromm the final analysis, everything depends o0n the success of our homes. We look to job-creators of all kinds. We're counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward, and we look to Democrats and Republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics."

Maybe the tea baggers can learn something from Christie and Obama

The bottom line is that there is free phone assistance available to those who qualify but it is not an Obama administration program. Taxpayers do support the program but not through federal income taxes. And despite the screaming lady in the video, eligibility doesn’t hinge on Social Security, disability or food stamps; there’s no “buy one bag of chips, get an Obama phone free” promotion. Just because a woman holding a sign gets a microphone in her face doesn’t make her statements true.

I'm calm, homie. So we are now using "concern" instead of gloating? Why don't we just call it what it is?
Homer doesn't gloat. I recognize almost half the voters disagree with this president.

It's a reaction from a stunned wall street that was hoping a Republican POTUS would reverse some of the financial regs so they could get back to screwing everyone in sight.

At the same time gold is still in decline__not to mention oil prices.

He was reelected because too many people have lost their moral compass, their bearings and their minds.
You helped reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck in the back of its neck.
Maybe you should think about that for a while.
Killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck in the back of its neck is one of those "women's health issues" Democrats keep talking about.

According to one Tea Party leader, the reason for Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama is that he was not conservative enough and was “weak-kneed” and a throwback to Bob Dole and John McCain. The President Bush’s were not named, however.
