Next.
I understand how all you Libs hate the fact that while he may have wanted to punch Obama, he instead used self-control and didn't do it. In other words, he acted like a responsible adult.

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.

Guess they finally finished counting in Florida? Florida is now a blue state!!! Hurraaahhh!

Romney has conceded Florida, via a statement from his FL advisor Brett Doster. "We thought based on our polling and range of organization that we had done what we needed to win," Doster told reporters this afternoon. "Obviously, we didn't, and for that I and every other operative in Florida has a sick feeling that we left something on the table. I can assure you this won't happen again."

Obama's win in Florida gives him a total of 332 electoral college votes to Mitt Romney's 206.(In 2008, the POTUS beat John McCain by a bigger margin, 365-173.)

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.

Did you let Bush off the hook when he let thousands die right here on USA soil???

He didn't do anything period, except lie and blame.

"Did you let Bush off the hook when he let thousands die right here on USA soil???"

Are you talking about the origional 9/11? The one that would never have happened if Clinton would have done his job instead of doing Monica?

Hmmmm, I wonder if the news will be reporting about all the help that Obama gave to the victims of Sandy today??? Oh wait, he got their votes, the election is over, and he never really cared about them anyway. I guess not.

After a Humiliating Election Night, Will Fox News Stop Lying?

Roger Ailes may finally realize that lying is bad for business -- and the GOP.

Fox knows that the sort of people who clog its airwaves on normal, regularly scheduled programming days ó and especially prime time ó are liars, phonies, wackos and con men. It knows itís constantly lying to its audience. In the Bush era this was fine for morale. In the first years of Obamaís term it was good for midterm election turnout. But itís apparent that itís clearly bad for the movement in the long term. Counting midterms, the parallel conservative media has now utterly failed to grasp the reality of the American electorate in three of the last four national elections.

I thought I told you.

LAST OPTION!

I am a Disabled Veteran, the LAST thing I want to see/hear about is WAR.

Having said that I ALSO know that it is an inevitable part of the human experience on this planet from time to time, as history shows.

The ONLY POSSIBLE thing we cannot obtain elsewhere is Egyptian Cotton.

The rest of the "middle east" we need have nothing to do with.

I agree, bring them ALL home and stop ALL aid to those countries.

What are they going to do?

Hate us?

Our only chance is to run a hispanic. With the changing demographics, white male republican men do not stand a chance. It ain't the Reagan era anymore. Obama got 96% black vote, 74% hispanic vote and 70% asian vote.
I thought Romney should have picked Rubio, it ends up Ryan did not help him anyway.
Besides Joe Biden is hinting at running in 2016. If that happens, we could run with Strom Thurmond and win.
Most Hispanics share the same traditional values as conservatives and many are saying the same thing. The GOP needs to focus on reaching this group of Americans and giving them a reason to see conservatives as the more attractive party who understands them and hears them. Truthfully, Romney didn't do a very good job in this area.

But the number of black republicans is growing. Hopefully, by 2016, even more of them will have figured it out.

Biden running for president in 2016 would be his best gift ever.
