Hang tough. Not a sore loser, just a realist. Face the fact, America was the big loser last night. We can all look forward to, more taxes, more deficits, more spending and a weaker America.

Two out of three anyway.
You know, I prepared myself for the worst - which actually happened.
The night before the election, I made peace with it. Coming home after waiting for 3 hours to cast my vote for Romney, I somehow had a feeling it wasn't going to be a victory.
So even though I was numb when it became clear my "premonitions" were correct, I didn't shed any tears until Romney's concession speech - and then only a few.
I've freely vented my frustrations on here because the easily fooled reelected the Deceiver-in-Chief, but I've been surprisingly pretty calm and serene.
Obama and the Democrat Party are in the spotlight now. How they manage to make the next four years any different than the last four has yet to be seen. There's no one to blame anymore.
We'll know who was right and who was wrong eventually. Obama may have won the election, but the verdict is still out on the fate of the Democrat Party.
Well, carol thanks for sticking your head out here to these coyotes. Anyways, I did not vote for Romney, but still would have preferred him to Obama. The problem is that in any case it would have been a gridlock and a Democrat senate would have been guaranteed to block it the other way as well.

So I must AGAIN ask the republicans here. Isn't it time to start building a REAL alternative to the democrats? Or, do you want to have all this happening again in 4 years? Because true my words, it WILL again if the RNC keeps electing unwinnables.

Romney is a raving hypocrite totally out of touch with common folk, just like GW was.
And spare us your condemnations on the abortion issue. It is a well-established fact that once the unborn are born, the right abandons them.
I might add, a two-week old blob of goo on the uterine wall is not exactly human.
But you, my dear, have no right to to judge.
Not from the pulpit of the party that launched an unnecessary war-by-lies, and instituted a program of mass torture than maimed and killed thousands.
The same party that outed a CIA agent, tried to overthrow the Nicaraguan regime in an illegal secret war behind the public's back (Iran-Contra) and hired ex-CIA thugs to break into Dem Party headquarters (Watergate).
No, my dear Carol, the moral high ground is not held by you GOP hypocrites.
That was very well said for someone who is so easily fooled.

Take the huge log out of your own party's eye first before pointing out the toothpick in mine.

We're not talking about Egypt moron, we're talking about the USA where freedom of religion is a guaranteed right under the Constitution . But since you want to go there, let's discuss the plight of Christians in Iraq who were free to worship and go about their business until Bush invaded the country and let loose sectarian groups that were held in check by Sadaam Hussein. They've been pretty much pushed out of the country.
There's no evidence that Muslims are trying to instill Sharia law in this country and even if they tried they'd come up against the First Amendment. That doesn't seem to deter right wing Christians from trying to impose their values on abortion, contraception and same sex marriage though.
You're an idiot!
Well, I'm talking about Egypt. You very commonly lie by omission, thus, I present the missing pieces. You don't like it, I know. Cockroaches don't like it when they're uncovered, either.

Your pretending to be ignorant of Muslim attempts to institute Sharia Law in America is shameful. Being stupid is one thing. Acting stupid is another. But you've got all the bases covered, Dood. Sharia Law is causing concern all throughout Europe, too, as we speak.

I think people HAVE gotten over it. It is you libs that cannot seem to get over it. Not even going to go there with the black panthers, but no surprise that republicnas did not stand up to this.

USA is in realty now a one-party nation and most people still are trying to lie themselves into believing it is so different.

Lorac...not lorax. Otherwise, my name spelled backwards would be xarol. Sounds like something sci-fi.
But if Obama should win, lorac will probably be back. My world and everything I wanted to believe about my country will be backwards, and I will be convinced we are, indeed, reaping what we have sown.
My faith was in the American people - not in past leaders or past mistakes. If Obama wins, my faith in my countrymen will be a thing of the past.
But I'd rather think positive. Romney has as good a chance of winning this election as Obama - if not more. It's what I'm counting on. My fellow countrymen.
Romney has to win.
So when do we get to see Lorac again??

At least she wasn't so condescending, even humble once she learned America was a corrupt as any other nation.

Pajamas media!! ROFLMAO

Not only are you a loser, you're a complete moron.

No laws should be based on religious beliefs, including all the judeo-christian based laws we already have.

If we can have Christian based laws, muslim based laws must be allowed.

Either no religion in politics, or you'll see mormons, muslims, hindus, sikh's, buddists, etc legislating.

You must have missed it. America is no longer a white Christian nation.

Yesterday''s election proved that. The only group Rmoney won is older white men.

Obama won women, young people, blacks, asians, hispanics, and sane white people.

You lost. But you should be used to it, being called a loser all your life!!

Deal with the new reality, loser!!

We are a melting pot of many nationalities and ethnic groups.

Deal with it, white boy.

You're free to go to another country if you hate America so.

If you will, I'll pay for the airfare - one way.

The American people spoke loudly yesterday. They rejected your beliefs wholesale. You're in the minority among white female voters.

Face it Carol, you're in Mitt's parallel universe.

How can the Obamas and Bidens and all their supporters be one bit happy knowing that the public hates them so much knowing what a low down dirty nasty campaign they ran? The Obamas/Bidens are arrogant sob's and will be impeached shortly imo! Good riddance to them and their supporters.

May Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and all the traitors at ABC suffer the same fate as Robin Roberts and the same on David Letterman, Jay Leno and Judas Christie! Double that for Jill Biden and her family and TRIPLE for Michelle Obama, Marion Robinson and her granddaughters!

Oh well, time to head out for another shift.

Wonder how many drunks, welfare takers with cold&sniffles and drug seekers that I will have to deal with tonight between all the REAL patients coming in... Oh, did I forget to mention that of course neither EWR or hospital will make a penny on any of those people? They are all a real loss and we are "mandated" to accept everything no matter what. Good luck trying to reform that Obama. As long as the bums know they will get what they want faster in the ER than having to start up a relationship with a primary care doctor.

One thing is sure: lots of nurses that are upset today. It's funny, all the mooches that come in and get treated for free tend to hate us all and they all vote Obama so they can get their hands even deeper into our wallets. I will go 50% next year if taxes go up. Can always do something on the side or simply phase out a bunch of private services. With 50% more spare time, no need to hire the landscapers any more either.

This will be fun. Now, can all the ones sad for ROmney loss now start realizing that choosing totally flawed candidates is only something democrats can win with?
