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

Tell that to Egypt's Coptic Christians. You can list a thousand events where American Christians told Muslims where to stick it but in your failure to also list all of the murdered Christians in Egypt, Lebanon, Africa and the entire Middle East at the hands of Muslims , you lose all of the Hot Air blowing in your sanctimonious sails. You are a liar by deceit, by failing to show the whole picture.
Go visit YouTube regarding Muslim Party store owners who won't wait on American Soldiers entering their stores. Or how Muslims are trying to install Sharia Law into American Law. PeeDePoop, you are so full of it, you're beginning to look like a colostomy bag.
How convenient that they have managed to manipulate the British goverment into allowing them not to pay interest on mortgages and other investments like other British citizens have to.

If they don't like the laws in their host countries then they should go back to shariashatzabadland.

They pull this same crap in France, Canada and Australia. Everybody is expected to bend to their will.

In 2008 there was very little little excuse to elect the worst candidate in history, this year there is no excuse. If you voted for Obama you should unregister and leave voting to the people who actually know what they are doing!!

Gunner and Fretard have proven themselves cowards.

The wrestling Queen (R-McMahon) lost badly to D-Murphy after spending over $40 Million of her own money to buy an election.

Americans are far brighter than Republiclowns give them credit for.

They saw right through the lies. And the overwhelming money advantage the Repubs were counting on to help them.

all in all, a very satisfying election.

Christie does rock!!

His help proved how bipartisan Obama is - if he has a partner to work with.

Christie proved he is willing to work with the other side.

Obama proved he is willing to work with the other side.

Romney proved he's an out of touch elitist!!

Hi Real,
Happy Alan Grayson won! Who will run for Gov of Fl?
Charlie Crist again?
He might like to but I don't think Chaingang Charlie has a snowballs chance. It appears that Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer (D) is interested and his stock is proven. On the (R) side Adam Putnam is a natural, either would be very capable as governor.

Grayson will do well in the US House and could perhaps replace Nelson in the Senate in six years when Nelson retires at 76 yoa.
Grayson wouldn't be a good governor__at least not in our state, he'd choke one of those panhandle morons to death and wind up in Raiford.

I predict that the US is Heading for a Recession With 2nd Obama Term.

We wonít get a depression, thankfully. This is still a very resilient economy, but we will have a recession.

Obamaís raising taxes on capital, raising taxes on small businesses is going to pose a real burden.

We have Europe doing the same thing: piling on new taxes, Japan piling on new taxes. The Federal Reserve is going to continue to undermine the dollar, which is going to hurt small and medium-size business. Itís going to be very tough sledding next year.

I was stunned by Obamaís sweeping victory over Mitt Romney. I thought Romney was connecting and became a credible alternative to Obama in the debates, especially after Americans got to see an articulate Romney and Obama without a teleprompter in the first debate and his finally being asked questions.

But with the benefit of hindsight, Romney didnít hammer home the way a Reagan would have, in terms of a positive agenda. He was very cautious in the last three or four weeks and he was cautious in the last debate.

Romney had no major interviews in the last four weeks and played it safe, like Tom Dewey in 1948. He lost it because Obama had established a message that the economy was not his fault. They were still blaming Bush and the polls showed that. People felt that things were starting to get a bit better. The other thing that hurt, something beyond anyoneís control: the storm in the Northeast.

Obamaís second term will come with rocky financial patches for some industries, because he does not have a mandate, but he will push hard for a second-term agenda, which will be more of the same as in the first term. If he canít get it through Congress then he will do it through regulation.

This is very bad news for the pharmaceutical industry, very bad news for the coal industry, very bad news for high-tech. We are going to have a recession next year. Itís not going to help the president, but sadly the country is going to pay the price for it.(Think NO JOBS.)

Obama is also likely to try to accelerate plans to further tax the rich and pursue policies that would redistribute wealth across the nation, and I donít think he needs to ratchet up the rhetoric, because he will get his tax increases. He will continue to wage regulatory warfare against the business community, even if he does it with a low voice.

Again, you are going to have to look at what these so-called independent agencies, like the EPA, the FDA and others are going to do. Itís going to very harmful toward free enterprise for freedom.

Another major issue, the national deficit, will also continue to fester with debt going to up trillions of dollars. Itís not just the debt and the deficit. Itís the fact that we are consuming wealth, Washington is consuming wealth, instead of enabling or letting America crate wealth.

The asset side of the balance sheet is going to be under severe pressure, while the liabilities are going up. Thatís a lethal combination. We are on the road to Greece and itís not going to be pleasant.

Under Obama, the Federal Reserve has been undermining the dollar, and that will continue. The government loves it because its deficit up to your ears. They get to finance the deficit at no ascendible cost. Itís going to be very hard on the economy, especially new and growing businesses.
