I mean besides blaming it on Hurricane Sandy.
Maybe we will finally get rid of the lying turd blossom & he can move in with GW.
He can open with:

Folks! We spent $400 million.

We got the first openly gay woman elected to the Senate.

OK big mouth, what loopholes was Romney going to close to balance out the 5 trillion tax cut?
Funny, Paul Ryan said he did not have a list yet here you are, claiming he did. Because Mitt Romney had a plan.
How was Romney getting us energy independent? Convert cars to run on coal? What was the plan?
Romney had no plans, only goals.
You should really learn the difference.
"real dumb"
Lets look at the goals of president nobama;
- More spending
- More debt
- Higher taxes
- More government interference in American's personal life, i.e. forcing insurance on the, forcing groups to go against their principals by making them provide BC benefits for their employees
- More American's on food stamps
- Fewer American's paying Federal income taxes
- Higher unemployment
- Continuing declines in household incomes
- Bigger government
- Gutting the military
I have to add based on your inane posts you and the president are joined at the hip.

Everybody thinks he was writing lots of those songs for Edie Sedgwick (who is sooooo flat chested by the way, not ample like me, and a total doper), but I'm completely convinced he was writing for me alone, just like that guy who probably saw me making my way down that lonely street after the go-go bars closed, and saw how "young and sweet" I was, unlike the others ... oh yeah, it was "Down on Main Street." I'm pretty sure we had a few cocktails together, but can't swear to it(they make sure you're practically a "B" girl before they'll even let you in the door to dance in those places (which are, just like the Mormon temples, money laundering operations), but not topless, as I would NEVER do that.
Also, the song "Roseanna" was NOT for that famous groupie, Roseanna Arquette, of the "acting" Arquettes, as I know that the original lyrics (and, yes, I DO have the handwritten original) has "carol" crossed out and replaced with "Roseanna," because I refused to give in to the lead guitarist's sweaty advances. So, actually, the lyrics went like this:
All I wanna do in the middle of the evening
Is hold you tight, oh carol, oh carol,
I didn't know you were looking for more
Than I could ever give
Not quite a year since she went away, oh carol. yeah
Now she's gone and I have to say
Meet you all the way
Meet you all the way, oh carol yeah
Meet you all the way
Meet you all the way, oh carol yeah
I can see your face still shining through the window
On the other side, oh carol, oh carol
I didn't know that a girl like you
Could make me feel so sad, oh carol, etc...
Of course, they would have gotten in trouble, since there actually is an older song, "carol," sung by the brilliant Paul Anka ("oh carol I am but a fool" and so on ...). Now him I really did roll around with a little, even if he was an Lebanese, but don't tell my mama. I mean, how could you resist?
Well, if we're gonna sing let's get it right eh? Oh Carol was by Sadaka, a Lebanese from Brooklyn who penned the song for his pal Carol King.

Anka, also a slight of build Lebanese singer/songwriter is from Canada. Sure bet that he didn't play hawkee in high school eh?

Prefer Sadaka myself and "laughter in the rain" one of the all time feelgood songs.

Yeah, but Obama said in his victory speech:
"In the weeks ahead, I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward."
That's a big switch from accusing him of murdering someone's wife.
He only looks forward to it because he knows, too, Romney is the only one who knows how to fix it.
He's not going to talk to Romney. He can't stand the guy. Romney represents everything Obama hates about America. Besides his ego would never allow it.

Fundies always eventually get to the threats.
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.
First of all, I am no freak. I never said I was God, and I know he can fight his own balltles. I am more standing up for God/Jesus in a country that is fastly trying to get rid of Christianity.

God doesn't accept abortions, nor does he approve of same sex being together. Show me in the Bible that he says he does., but God gave us free will, and unlike you people, God don't think of you as TTHE PROBLEM and will kill you for it. All God will do is judge you later. Either you live in Heaven or you don't. THE CHOICE IS YOURS. Oh, and you are a fine one to preach to me on any type of religion. Maybe you should actually read The Holy Bible and/or take some Bible lessoons before you act like a Sunday School Teacher towards other people on here.

"The percentages those on welfare by race as of 2011 are listed below in descending order by percentage.
"people on welfare will tell you that being on welfare is not an easy way of life."
Then why are there so many who have lived on welfare for generations?

There are a lot of welfare people who have a lot more that working people.

"Barack Obama continued his sales blitz across the country Tuesday, touting his jobs plan and scolding Republicans in Congress more than once to 'pass this bill.'

You don't have gay friends?

Never known a gay neighbor.

I wish all my neighbors were gay,

They take care of their homes really good, always friendly, ready to help others.

Mitt for your neighbor!

Tears up the whole street for his car elevator, never looks you in the eye, and his wife rides that dancing horse at all hours! And "doesn't pick it up"

That has to sting:



and the new lady in town! Ryan's backyard!

Billions spent by right shiners. For a beat down.

Congressman Louis T. McFadden said the following during a speech before Congress on June 10, 1932:

"Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the mal-administration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.

Some people think the Federal Reserve banks are United States Government institutions. They are not government institutions. They are private credit monopolies, which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign swindlers; and rich and predatory money-lenders. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislation; and there are those who maintain an international propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us and wheedling us into the granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.”

Status Quo Ante

By: Erick Erickson

Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo.$6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors.

Republicans will keep the House. Democrats will keep the Senate. Obama will keep the White House.

It is what it is. The next two years are going to be some of the most fun and exciting years within the modern American conservative movement.

We know in American politics that nothing is permanent. The question we are going to have to assess is whether Barack Obama’s coalition is a Democratic coalition or a Barack Obama coalition. My personal opinion is that Barack Obama built a winning coalition for Barack Obama and it may not translate to a long term Democratic coalition. Just ask Minority Leader Pelosi and that now endangered creature known as the Democratic Governor.

As the jockeying for 2016 begins soon (and it will begin very soon) we will find out.

The Obama campaign ran a very good campaign. The Republicans did not. There was no fraud. There was no stealing the election. There was just a really good ground game from Barack Obama and a lot of smoke and mirrors from Team Romney and outside charlatans, many of whom will now go work for Republican Super PACs making six figure salaries, further draining the pockets of rich Republicans when not on television explaining how awesome and expert they are. Whether you can bring yourself to say it or not, like it or not, Barack Obama is, today, your President.

There will be a lot of blame to go around, but, if Republicans are honest, they’ll have to concede that the Romney campaign ran a bad campaign and only almost won because the President had a bad debate. Romney could not even win his home state, his second home state, or his vacation home state.

Neither side bothered to put forward a serious agenda that stood for much of anything. Barack Obama ran on beating up Mitt Romney and Mitt Romney ran on running away from himself. He stood for nothing and everything at the same time. At least Barack Obama campaigned on the consistent message of hating Mitt Romney.

Compare Romney to Scott Walker. Scott Walker took on the unions in Wisconsin and won big. Romney barely took on Barack Obama. He drew few lines in the sand, made those fungible, and did not stand on many principles. Americans wanted to assess a contrast between the candidates and got blurred lines instead. They went with the politician they knew instead of the one who was different depending on the election season, constituency, and time of day.

At the same time, Romney made a conscious decision to blow off Hispanic voters. Yes conservatives, we must account for this. The Romney campaign to the hispanic community was atrocious and, frankly, the fastest growing demographic in America isn’t going to vote for a party that sounds like that party hates brown people. That does not mean the GOP must offer up amnesty. It does mean that a group that is a natural fit for the GOP on social issues, must in someway be made to feel comfortable with the GOP.

One more thing before moving on to my larger point, both parties should henceforth agree to never, ever nominate for President anyone from Massachusetts.
