Obama won Iowa. What's your excuse?

You are another example of how our society is full of spoiled whiny babies. You lost. Take your lumps and do better next time.

It was just annouced on the morning news this morning,Obama's plan to economis recover "raise taxes and not just on the wealthy but all involed and cut federal spending" had that muslim JACKASS had not spent so much the last 4 years there would be no need to raise taxes. You bunch of liberal idiots
Were you so brainwashed by the Romney campaign that you never noticed that his plan was to raise taxes on everybody EXCEPT the rich and to cut spending? Everyone knows the fiscal cliff is coming up fast and even the FOX pundits have said that we'll have to increase revenues and cut spending to deal with it - no matter who had won the election or how many have signed Norquist's pledge..

Rove’s On-Air Rebuttal of Fox’s Ohio Vote Call Raises Questions About His Role
Mr. Rove has not addressed the episode on Fox News since Tuesday night. He appeared on the network on Wednesday, in an interview on “Fox & Friends,” but he was not asked about his mistake.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/08/us/politics...
not asked? no doubt.
That's because he has not answer and Fox News new better than to ask a loaded question. The bottom-line is he is a moron and didn't have a clue on what he was talking about.

Looking at the results, they showed that the Tally-centric Republican Party of Florida is an ineffective, outdated, out of touch political machine which has failed once again to meet the challenges of the demographic changes in Florida, particularly the influx of Puerto Ricans from the northeast into the I-4 corridor and the conversion of younger Cubans to the Democratic brand in Miami-Dade County.

And as much as the state reflected the mood of the country, in both state and national politics, the election results accentuated the debilitating influence in GOP ranks of social-centric fanatics driven by Biblical dogma and extreme, xenophobic right wing ideology that have driven out necessary and important moderate influences that used to make the party attractive to the middle of the road Americans — or the Florida residents receiving food stamps.

The RPOF remains stuck in sinking mud in the Terry Schiavo era of Florida politics, more consumed with its petty fight with former turncoat Gov. Charlie Crist than getting political candidates representing a broad spectrum of political thought elected to office.

The election showed its failed focus remains on crusading on Christian social issues and protecting a small, but extremely powerful rich super constituency of millionaires and powerful insurance, agriculture and finance lobby.

They spent more time pushing a bloated ballot containing too many right wing social and economic issues and continuing the fight to limit early voting rather than concentrating on tough races in South Florida involving rising stars in its ranks like Allen West, Adam Hasner, and Ellyn Bogdanoff.

And the results reflected the impotency and insignificance of the unpopular Republican Gov. Scott —he's the unpopular GOP "leader" of the state that Romney had to shun.

Obama was more concerned about "offending" his Muslim brothers than he was about the Ambassador's safety. A military attack on a Muslim nation would have made him look bad in the eyes of Islam.

I am happy and not surprised in the least that the American women would not stand for the backward thinking of the Republican party who wants to keep pushing to eliminate womens rights to choose.
I am astounded that Carol remains to stay stuck in that space.

Dick Morris needs a new crystal ball
In the run-up to the 2010 midterm elections, Fox's Dick Morris offered numerous incorrect--and often wildly off-mark--electoral predictions in fundraising emails and media appearances, in which he also occasionally got the names of candidates he was promoting wrong. This follows Morris' long history of off-the-mark political prognostications.

So now I would think you have NO reason to be either paranoid NOR obsessed with Fox. You can completely wipe it off your radar. Right?

My great great grandchildren will read about Obama and wonder how he ever got elected twice. No, I take that back. America will be a Communist/Muslim nation by then and they will be programmed by the state to worship Obama.
