Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Fox News political analyst Dick Morris, who repeatedly predicted a "landslide" victory for Mitt Romney, is officially "through" according to the standard set by Bill O'Reilly earlier this year.
During a May appearance on The O'Reilly Factor, O'Reilly told Morris that he was "so far out on the limb" for a Romney win, that if Obama was re-elected, Morris would be"through" and would be "selling refrigerators in Topeka."

Unfortunately this is the problem for the conservative movement, they only talk and listen to themselves. So as a result never get to see success for the other side of the argument. Fox news is a lot to blame for that, trying to point out that main stream news outlets are all Liberal bias when in fact all they are doing is reporting the news. Sure they have commentators with liberal opinions but the news is not filtered in the way Fox does it. Fox runs on a story based on an opinion, whether it is climate change or a hard facts news story. They try to present it filtered through their ideology ignoring science, ignoring facts. This is where the Dick Morris's & the Karl Rove's of this world look like clowns. The Baggers pretty much have destroyed the Republican party and for them to rebuild need to shift to the middle a lot more. If Mitt was allowed to run as Mitt the moderate, they would have done a lot better.

Do you know that it will be illegal, a federal crime, to sell baked goods, to rise fund money, in schools, because of sugar and salt contents?
And that is just the beginning!
Yep, and if Obama gets his way, possession of a firearm will be a Federal crime too.

You mean the people of color like the Middle East terrorists and Mexican drug lords? You're right, they probably are feeling more empowered.

No foreigners have proven they will work for peanuts and like being treated like slaves. Also those nations will allow companies to dump toxic waste anywhere they want and spew poison into the air.

THIS IS ABOUT GREED NOT WHO OR WHAT IS BETTER.

Voters in Cal VOTED TO RAISE THEIR OWN TAXES TO FIX THE STATES PROBLEMS.
take a cue from that.
Republicans need to wake up.
Come over and make a real deal to fix the country.
I read your stuff on here! You hate the poor? They don't like it. But we are not India. Beggars in the street are not the norm.
We help our poorest live a little.
Insurance? Affordable by law.
Taxes a little higher on rich incomes. Ok.
They had ten years of cuts so far: country owes trillions.
We tried that! It was a lie: no trickle down.
SO WE FIXED IT! VOTERS SAID FIX IT! DEMOCRATS WIN.

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.

Jobs were sent overseas for one reason and one reason only... GREED! There was a time when the cost of a thing was not so important, but the quality of its manufacture was. The U.S. cannot become isolationists. That has never worked for any lengthy period. But in the same vein, we need to push our elected officials for reciprocal tariffs on imported goods. When our cars go to japan, it takes days for each one to be inspected to make sure it can be used there. If we were to do the same, you would be able to drive across the Pacific in a matter of weeks for the ships backed up to Asia. NAFTA is all well and good, in principal. The reality of it is that the Central and South American countries are benefiting and the U.S. is being glutted with shoddy work and cheap labor. I will be writing to our President again, today, and to my elected state officials to ask that they address these issues. I would urge each person to do the same, whatever your issues are. Change the people in office until they get done what needs to be done!

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.
Maybe you should think about how people react to right wing visuals that go for a visceral reaction.

Abortion is not always right. Abortion is not always wrong. It is legal you know. And right wing nuts trying to put images in our heads of killing a 'baby' will not change that. Seems to me at this point we can see it's not helping one little bit.

A more mature and reasoned argument should now be the path of those who would try to use any means to make their point. Just ask BillO about Tiller.

Obama was reelected because most Americans believe in freedom.

You believe in using your religious beliefs to take freedos away, based on your Bible.

You've been rejected.

Moral compass? You can't even tell the truth about an impersonal issue like the mortgage crisis.

Of course, the better way is how it was done in the '50's. If you're rich enough, send your daughter to an overseas clinic and if you aren't, just lock her in her room and make sure there aren't any knitting needles or clothes hangers in the closet. That's not immoral - after all, women are just chattel in the Holy Bible.

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.
Most Obama supporters can't even spell economy, let alone give a crap about it. They just want their free stuff.
