Or maybe we just find a way to get rid of all those pesky minorities, you have any ideas how we could do that without causing a ruckus?
In January, when every one looks at their paychecks they will realize they voted for the wrong candidate. The average workers pay check will be $400 lighter. Obama's not worth $400.

Liberals won because the unfair advantage of the liberal media, including tax payer funded Public Broadcasting media brain washing the kids!
No fair playing field and you know it!
Nothing wrong with Conservatism but we our own tax payer funded liberal media against our own will using out own money!
I bet you will not agree to defund liberal media right?
You happy because Goliath won?
David versus Goliath!
So the #1 cable news and the #1 talk radio show are conservative.

And as you explain it, and as I've been saying for years, their being #1 doesn't really mean a whole hell of a lot to us that don't need right wing lies to get through our day.
Obama is a joke

Maybe that will help Romney win.
When are you going to "get it". You need to quit listening to allll those phat crayon ozombieTics that don't "get it". They will drag you DOWN, down, down, to their ghetto/gutter lvels of not "getting it".

Romney is Already a winner, for like the flipping eigth time or something. America lost on that one.
Uncle Joe can still hang out, but he needs to play nicely with that nice young man, Paul Ryan. HE's the one that has one dem dar TRS80 calculator thingys. They can come in VERY handy...especially when handled with instructions!

A new report by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office reminds legislators that tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect automatically in January threaten job growth significantly in the coming year. But for the first time, CBO has analyzed (PDF) the economic consequences of specific provisions within the sequester. And it turns out the least harmful component of the coming fiscal consolidation is precisely what Democrats are demanding: the expiration of the Bush tax cuts for high earners.

CBO doesn’t examine the top bracket Bush tax cuts directly. But it does look at two competing scenarios: One where all of the expiring tax cuts except for the payroll tax cut are extended; another where all of the expiring tax cuts except for the payroll tax cut and the Bush tax cuts for top earners are extended.

The former, CBO says, would increase employment by 1.8 million full time equivalent employees in 2013 relative to allowing everything to lapse. The latter would increase employment by 1.6 million. The difference, 200,000 full time equivalent jobs, is attributable to the expiration of the top bracket Bush tax cuts alone.

By comparison, other layers of the fiscal cliff save less money and have far greater economic consequences. Failing to extend the expiring payroll tax cut and expiring emergency unemployment benefits through 2014 would cost the economy about 800,000 jobs, according to CBO. The two halves of the sequester — the defense cuts and the domestic cuts — would each cost the economy about 400,000 full time equivalent jobs.

The findings run counter to GOP claims that allowing the top-bracket Bush tax cuts to expire would kill 700,000 jobs, and to the broader notion that protecting tax cuts for wealthy Americans should be the highest priority of legislators hoping to promote a balanced mix of economic growth and fiscal responsibility.

Fred ran bare-assed through the flooded streets oblivious to the fate that awaited him. A few hundred yards above him Jane hurtled towards the earth fully absorbed in squeezing a gigantic pustule on her nose. It wouldn't budge and as she frantically worked on it her broom crashed into the pavement just behind the running Fred and then ricocheted off and straight up Fred's ass. One minute he was running along and the next he was impaled on a broken broomstick with a horrible green creature on it squeezing a bloody stump on her nose.

As Yawkie lies down
Alone in her bed.
Alone in her bed
But not in her mind
The Debil waits there
To spread her behind.

Who are "his own people"? Isn't Obama almost one of a kind. How many people can have empathy with Obama? How many people with two million dollar homes,attended exclusive private schools in Indonesia,Hawaii,California and New York voted for Obama? How many of those are the son of a foreigner? It must be true that people voted for Obama because he is empathetic there life struggles?

Craigslist ad....

Pickup Truck/Campaign Prop (Wrentham)

Rarely used green GMC Canyon pickup truck for sale. Was used mainly to pander to voters so little actual wear and tear. Low mileage and in good shape- truck was garaged for long stretches until owner needed to pretend to be "regular guy." State of art GPS system which allows driver to completely avoid all urban areas, communities of color and Cambridge. Alignment might need some work- truck always seems to pull to the right.

Several vintage political bumper stickers need to be removed.
