To the rest of the world, the United States is a very odd place. The idea that the modern Republican Party, which is so clearly focussed on establishing a regime which privileges only the super-wealthy (and then only in the short-term), can attract half the popular vote is extraordinary. Of course, it does so by pretending that its "tax cuts for the wealthy" mantra actually has benefits for the middle- and working-classes (and we've seen how well those "neo-liberal" policies work out). If that doesn't work, it simply encourages victims of neo-liberalism to direct their anger sideways at other disadvantaged people: immigrants, refugees, homeless people, etc. The same thing happens in my country, Australia, of course, but Australia is not so deeply divided along class boundaries as the United States, in part because its population has not been victimised by as much of the destructive neo-liberal program as its trans-Pacific friends. Those of us looking in from the outside shake our heads and wonder that the United States -- the "land of the free and the home of the brave" -- is so rapidly forsaking the Enlightenment and the Western world's faith in the scientific method and reasoned debate that a major political party can be overtaken by cranks and kooks who believe that it's God's will that gay people not marry and that women not have abortions, and that these issues are more pressing than overcoming disadvantage, inequality and environmental catastrophe. How anybody -- not least half the voting population -- could conceive of voting for the Republican Party in its present guise is a mysterious, horrific shame.

So tell me, what has Obama done for the people in NY?
Poor Nobraina.

Still fighting the battle that his side lost!!

Accoring To Governor Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg, Obama has been a tremendous partner, clearing red tape and getting the Federal Government in motion.

But then, they're Democrats.

Of course, Gov. Christie said th esame thing. He might be in for a Cabinet Post!!

Meanwhile, you remain a loser, in every sense of the word.

He said all the people worth over one million had combined wealth of $120 billion.
I showed that the top 400 people alone are worth $1.7 TRILLION.
all people worth at least one million: own a net worth many many TRILLIONS!
The top 20% control 85% of the wealth.
The wealth of all households(PEOPLE):$44 TRILLION.
so just the top 20% control $37.4 TRILLION.
The bottom 80%$6.6 TRILLION.
THE USA IS NOT BANKRUPT!

Yep.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Who died and made you GOD, freak? And since when does GOD need you to fight his battles?

Fundies always eventually get to the threats.
Always.

Seems to me, if God didn't want abortions, He wouldn't be the world's busiest abortionist.

You really ought to familiarize yourself with the tenets and realities of your own religion.

Obama is STEALING Romney's ideas and some of his words but does not have his looks, class, morals, intelligence or character. Obama is not funny or cool and neither is that hateful wife of his. The N word suits the Obamas to a tee and was made for Marion Robinson and her offspring if it ever was meant for anyone. The Bidens will qualify too and Joe wasn't lying when he made his stupid remark about putting people back in chains.

The N'S ran the NASTIEST CAMPAIGN along with the BIDENS and free passes from the traitors in the MMS and the "N" word suits ALL OF THEM. Barbara Walters is the biggest N of all along with David Letterman and Eva Longhoria and the supporters at the Democratic Convention!

I agree that another obama presidency is something we will make the best of. What scares me are the 10s of millions that voted themselves government handouts. We may not survive them.

Women who voted for Obama because of their private parts over people having jobs are pretty stupid and selfish.
A lot of young people didn't even vote. And those who voted for Obama apparently haven't started looking for a job yet. They're in for a big surprise.
Thanks for proving you're as slow on the uptake as they are, nuc. Good job.
ABortion is legal.

It is murder in your twisted mind only.

Keep your nose out of others business.

America is based on personal freedom, all you seem to care about is taking rights away from citizens.

Take your dumb religious beliefs and stuff them shere th eSun doesn't shine.

America rejects you evangelical nutjobs!!

You lost Florida!!

One thing you tools need to realize that each election the "white" vote shrinks by around 2% each election. So unless the Republican party evolves into something more civilised with an ideology that suits the modern world. People like you and those who share the same views are on everything from religion to climate change are on the path to oblivion.

Those kids ARE NOT INNOCENT! They are sluts and mooching thieves and sex crazy! Just look at those pictures of them. THEY DO NOT GO TO ANY CHURCH just as their parents. They are MUSLIMS and were baptized and sat in the racist church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright where they learned to hate America and where that hate was reinforced by their grandmother and alleged parents!
The Obamas are the WORST FIRST FAMILY EVER! What was Malia Obama and her paid-for pals doing in Oaxaca, Mexico with 25 Secret Service Agents at the taxpayers expense? They WERE NOT ON A CHURCH SPONSERED TRIP but were in the company of Scandal-Ridden Secret Service Agents, sent by their corrupt and incompetent parents on an undeserved trip costing millions to a country that was deemed TOO DANGEROUS for American citizens to travel to!
Google and educate yourself about these filthy no-good scumbag lowlifes!
Barack Obama needs to be held to task and no more freebies and coaching Sasha Obama's basketball team unless he does so entirely on his own time and money AFTER completing an honest day's WORK! That means he can shell out for all the Secret Service required if he wants to spend his own unearned money BUT NOT OURS GOD DAMN IT!
Can't you people see what thieves and traitors the Obamas are and how they are playing all the "folks" for fools?
Boycott David Letterman, Jay Leno, Barbara Walters and ALL HER CREW, the Kardashians and all those immoral celebrities who are ruining our society and country. Do not buy their books, records, see their movies or shows and tune them off your tv! Watch just long enough to keep tabs on them and wait for them to meltdown!
and you call them SATANS daughters??? SHAME on your behavior you are CHIMPING OUT like a 5 year old!!! SMH

Don't worry, Carol.

The regulars know you without lookiing at the name.

Your lame, backwards views give you away every time.

So, if abortion is murder, why is it legal in the USA?? Why did the Supreme Court say it is legal??

Why haven't conservatives attempted to overturn Roe v Wade??Why didn't Bush, with his conservative Supreme Court??

It's because abortion is a useful tool to get weak minded folks like yourself all whipped into a lather.

Get over it. Your side lost.

Deal with it, quit yer bitchin'!!
