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

So are you saying there are no pro life Democrats or no Democrats against same sex marriage?

Dig a little deeper in your pockets all you rich, greedy, stuck up, mostly just lucky upper class. Spread the wealth. This is a victory for all of America. Not even a close election, lets make that very clear. And that is for a good reason, because we can see through the hatred of the republican party. Time to get your checkbooks out and pay more taxes like you should have been all along. Romney/Ryan, what a f'n joke. The red will not win for many,many more years!! GOD BLESS AMERICA! Way to go Obama/Biden, keep doing a great job.


If you want to tax the rich, start with the Obamas since they contribute about 25,000 tax free dollars to their daughter's college fund each year. That means the rest of us are subsidizing their future education.

Too bad Bachman got re elected, but, all in all very pleased.
We have Lois Frankel as our new congresswoman! Allen West is out!
State Attorney, Dave Aronberg! Most of the constitutional ammendments that the Republicans loaded on the ballot were crushed.
The Supreme Court to retain the judges that Rick Scott tried to get rid of. Yes, it's a good day all in all.
Mitt gave a nice gracious concession speech, first time he seemed real. Perhaps he ought to have been real all along instead of listening to his handlers, was he the liar, or were they?
The people have spoken, let's hope that Congress gets to work for the people now.
Sounds like Florida is now doomed like the USA is.

Excerpt from Romney's concession speech:

"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 the 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, for in the final analysis everything depends on 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.

I believe in America. I believe in the people of America. And I ran for office because I’m concerned about America. This election is over, but our principles endure. I believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to a resurgent economy and to renewed greatness.

I so wish that I had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader. And so Ann and I join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation."

...I so wish that you had been able to fulfill our hopes to lead the country in a different direction too, Governor Romney.

A golden opportunity just slipped through our fingers.

But women can still kill their unborn and taxpayers can pay for their birth control.

Small and negative campaign ads accusing one's opponent of murder is now the new standard.

Big government and dependency is the new version of "honor".

But the majority have forgotten what's important and how to hope for something better.

And, yes, Governor Romney, you would have been a great president. I weep for what this nation threw away.

It's because they're all abortions that lived.

Pox on the house of the Obama/Biden supporters everywhere especially those traitors in the MMS who have allowed Barry Boy and his scummy wife to invade this county with Muslim traitors and MURDER the Ambassador to Libya and the three others. You all are complicit in the murders of the four in Libya and have blood on your hands. You are all pure evil and will pay for your sins!

I disagree. If Romney were an "out of touch elitist" many in Massuchussets would STILL be uninsured, and the 2002 SLC Olympic games might've been in even more serious trouble-like the direction this country is heading in now.

Utah's Olympic Parks Keep The Dream Alive

Utah Olympic Oval

The 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City were an astounding success. http://www.utah.com/olympics/
---
While even Mr. Romney’s critics concede that the Games — which had faced serious potential financial difficulties before his arrival — were a huge success...(NYTimes 2007)

Scandal

The Scandal broke on 10 December 1998, when Swiss IOC member Marc Hodler, head of the coordination committee overseeing the organization of the 2002 games, announced that several members of the IOC had taken bribes. Soon four independent investigations were underway: by the IOC, the USOC, the SLOC, and the United States Department of Justice.

Before any of the investigations could even get under way both Welch and Johnson resigned their posts as the head of the SLOC. Many others soon followed. The Department of Justice filed charges against the two: fifteen charges of bribery and fraud. Johnson and Welch were eventually acquitted of all criminal charges in December 2003.[1]

As a result of the investigation, ten members of the IOC were expelled and another ten were sanctioned.[7] This was the first expulsion or sanction for corruption in the more than a century the IOC had existed. Although nothing strictly illegal had been done, it was felt that the acceptance of the gifts was morally dubious. Stricter rules were adopted for future bids and ceilings were put into place as to how much IOC members could accept from bid cities. Additionally new term and age limits were put into place for IOC membership, and fifteen former Olympic athletes were added to the committee.

In 2006, a report ordered by the Nagano region's governor said the Japanese city provided millions of dollars in an "illegitimate and excessive level of hospitality" to IOC members, including US$4.4 million spent on entertainment alone.[8]
Aftermath

**Mitt Romney was brought in to head the SLOC.[9] Romney aided in reorganizing the committee and helped to begin fixing the budget, which at the time was US$379 million short, and renewing sponsor enthusiasm....

From US$379 million short, to "astounding success."

Sometimes peoples WORK records and ethics, actually speak volumes of their true ability, and compassion for others.

I personally, think he'd've done a good job as POTUS. America's loss though, not Mr. Romneys.

So, Obama has his work cut out for him, and America is watching, as always.
