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

Well, congratulations to you Obama supporters.

I hope I am wrong about what I feel his reelecton means to our country and hope you will be proven right in thinking this is a good thing. Because we all have to live it now.

A wintry mix of heavy rain, wind and snow bore down on the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday, as more than 600,000 households that have been without power for more than nine days prepared for a long and cold night.
Forecasters predicted wind gusts of up to 60 mph in shore towns and cities across New York and New Jersey, bringing 2- to 4-foot storm surges just as homes and office buildings dry and flood waters recede after Superstorm Sandy.
And you would have the President do what, again?
Take a mighty breath, and blow the snow back "across the pond" maybe?

Jeesh.

More voters in the swing states of Florida, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia blame George W. Bush than Obama for the state of the U.S. economy. Florida, Ohio and Virginia were still too close to call late Tuesday night.

And exit polling suggests that in the critical battleground state of Ohio, 59% of voters polled approve of the federal government's aid to U.S. automakers while 36% disapprove.

Neither would be free but included in their insurance coverage that they purchase. Abortions were not included in the o copay argument or involved government money.

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 wasn't the ideal candidate. But in this economy, a proven businessman seemed to most of us a clear no-brainer.

Keep in mind the democrats have no one to blame anymore. It's the democrat party whose fate is really on the line. Not the other way around.

That's why other republicans distanced themselves from these two obscure republicans who put their foot in their mouths when their zealousy - even when it was good-intentioned - didn't represent the entire party.

I would hate to think two obscure republicans who personally believe life should be preserved at all costs overshadowed a vice-president implying republicans were responsible for slavery and saying "they want to put ya'll back in chains" or a presidential campaign ad accusing Romney of killing a man's wife took precedence in people's ability to reason at the polls.

It was unfortunate the wording these two republicans chose to use in their extreme pro life stances. But they were condemned for it by all republicans and lost their elections because of it.

But you and I both know that if Ryan had said to a roomful of black republicans "they want to put ya'll back in chains" or if a Romney ad had accused Obama of killing a man's wife, their campaigns would have been over in a heartbeat.

We both also know that if two obscure democrats had said something extremely controversial, the media wouldn't have even covered it and the public would have never even known about it.

There are two sets of standards when it comes to liberals and the democrat party. There always has been. A corrupt media is the reason and are responsible for choosing sides.

If the mainstream media were cheerleaders for the republican party, you'd agree. A biased media is very dangerous. Ask Germans who lived in the 1930s. They will be the first ones to tell you.

There was also no way Obama voters were as enthusiastic as Romney voters. Just no way. The enthusiasm gap. Everyone bought it. Again, the opposite was true.

Americans were going to be outraged by Benghazi. Chicago made up jobs numbers. Florida was a done deal. Romney had momentum until Sandy. And on and on.

Conservatives say these things with such conviction. I think they believe them to be true. And there's a reason for that. Not so long ago, when conservatives said these things en bloc, they would come true. They'd happen. Back in Clinton's day, say. Or Bush's, before the debacles really hit home.

But then at some point, the majority of Americans stopped buying conservative bullshit. It must have been after Iraq. And Katrina. But now, conservatives can't make surrealities come true just by saying so.

SIT DOWN YOU NAZI FASCIST LOST....
Obama watched the attacks as they happened. He received numerous pleas for help. He ordered forces to offer no assistance, though one brave Navy Seal (who was killed) assisted anyway. Later he lied about it and tried to blame it on some stupid You Tube clip. After numerous lies and coverups the truth came out so he tried to blame it on Hillary Clinton. In 1974, Richard Nixon resigned due to the Watergate scandal. If not he surely would have been impeached. Watergate was not nearly the scandal this Benghazi thing is. Nobody died at Watergate. Congress has plenty of grounds for impeachment.
By the way, Obama favors a state-controlled economy, i.e. Obamacare. That would make him fascist.

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.
Think I'll wait it out and see how Obama magically turns his last four years around doing the exact same thing.

If people don't see things improving by 2014 - the same year Obamacare kicks in, by the way - it's you who might want to think about leaving the country.

Just wish they could come together in DC and work out a deal of compromise. Reagan was praised during his days for compromises. Today the Repubs would not even elect him.

Retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) said that Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" comment turned women off of the Republican Party, during an appearance on CNN's "Starting Point" Thursday.

Comments from candidates like Akin "really tainted the party," Hutchison said, explaining the gender gap that helped Democrats win Tuesday night. "I think it's the feeling that Republicans don't get it."

But when your business is doing this to American workers it hard to convince Dems it's what we needed.
.
WASHINGTON -- On Tuesday, officials from Bain Capital-owned Sensata Technologies threatened to shut down its north-central Illinois plant "immediately and indefinitely" if those protesting the offshoring of the facility's jobs entered the plant in an act of civil disobedience again, according to local city officials.
The plant in Freeport, Ill., which is already scheduled to close at the end of the year, has become an embarrassing campaign issue for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The factory's 170 jobs are being relocated to China. Activists and workers have called on Romney to use his influence with Bain to halt the offshoring.
.
.
And then it's hard for us Dems to understand Repub Leaders in DC that do this to American workers.
.
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
