Barack Obama, our next President

Obama was being kind Flack, Romney didn't have a plan__no one in the (R) primary line up had a plan except Ron Paul and his was straight out of the Andy Hardy Series.

Romneyworld reckoning begins

“They ran a 20th century campaign in the 21st century,” said one Romney bundler, frustrated that the campaign made assumptions about the youth vote and voter intensity that didn’t pan out.“The anger is that they were entrusted to do certain things. It’s not like they were paid a $5,000 retainer to get a few dozen articles in an inside-the-Beltway paper. This is the major leagues.”

Another Republican outside the Romney campaign but privy to its thinking described the defeat as a complete pummeling, with Senate losses adding salt to the wound.

Romney supporters point to a series of brash statements made by advisers that seem out of touch with reality in retrospect. Inside the Beltway, Republicans trained their fire on senior Romney advisers like Ed Gillespie and political director Rich Beeson for appearances on last weekend’s Sunday shows. Gillespie said the electoral map was expanding, and Beeson predicted a 300 electoral vote win for Romney.

“There were a lot of Republicans who were on calls that the campaign was having led to believe we had shots in Pennsylvania and Minnesota,” one Republican operative supporting Romney said.“I think Republicans are split right now between confused and shocked, and also I think they are wondering did the Romney campaign have numbers we didn’t have.”

In starker terms, the source questioned:“Was last week a head fake, or were they just not that smart?”

<quoted text>
Obama is STEALING Romney's ideas and some of his words but does not have his looks, class, morals, intelligence or character. Obama is not funny or cool and neither is that hateful wife of his. The N word suits the Obamas to a tee and was made for Marion Robinson and her offspring if it ever was meant for anyone. The Bidens will qualify too and Joe wasn't lying when he made his stupid remark about putting people back in chains.
The N'S ran the NASTIEST CAMPAIGN along with the BIDENS and free passes from the traitors in the MMS and the "N" word suits ALL OF THEM. Barbara Walters is the biggest N of all along with David Letterman and Eva Longhoria and the supporters at the Democratic Convention!
I don't understand why the blacks can call each other the N word, but when a white person says it, it has a whole new meaning. They didn't change the meaning of the N word like they have the meaning of Gay too, did they?
I mean, when I was growing up the word Gay meant happy go lucky. I heard blacks call the whites the N word, so why do people act like this word is far worse than saying the queen mother of dirty words ?

People need to take a good look at how they act, what they say, and do things. No wonder racism is still a big problem, because people want to keep it alive (for all the wrong resons), and don't listen nor take God's word to not dwell on the past.

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.
NEXT
Unless you can get back to me with the red print selections showing Jesus condemning abortion or homosexuality, then I think you'd better check on what happened to Onan and stop with the pronouncements from high times on what "God don't think." You might "fastly" use a few "lessoons" before you misuse the term toward again. LMAWLEYAO

About that "jobs bill" everyone is blaming the republicans for not passing...even the Daily Beast reported the truth.
"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.'

Uh-oh...the liberal talking points bible made liberals look stupid.
I am shocked!
Does your biased link explain why the Senate didn't support it?

Perhaps because the GOP in the House tacked on a bunch of legislation to 'redefine rape'?

Same reason your wife, mother, and sisters can call each other B's, but you (and the rest of the people who know them) should not. "Blacks call whites the N word"? What color is the sky on your planet, Foil Hat Boi.

One of his campaign ads did. Obama did not condemn it even when the cheerleaders hammered his press secretary about it after it was discovered it was a complete lie.

When the cheerleaders get mad, you know it must be pretty bad.

Barack Obama won because his campaign team ran a tremendous ass kicking ground game while the Romney campaign clearly ran smoke and mirrors so convincingly inside the echo chamber of the GOP as to fool a lot of great Republican pundits and Dick Morris.
But Barack Obama also won because the public knew him and stacked him up to a nothing burger on the other side. That nothing burger was not, per se, Mitt Romney, but the GOP as a whole. Consider, if you will, the GOP’s Senate nominees, many, but not all, of whom were backed by the party establishment.
Tommy Thompson, Heather Wilson, Connie Mack, Pete Hoekstra, Linda McMahon, Todd Aiken, and Richard Mourdock were not exactly founts of rhetorical genius or articulate mouthpieces for conservatism in the way Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz have been.
Add to them Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and the like and the GOP has had very few skilled salesmen for conservative ideas and values. The party then put its fate in the hands of a moderate from Massachusetts who, just trust the GOP, was really more conservative than he let on. Conservatives, many of whom did not buy it, were happy to be loyal soldiers because he was the nominee — a loyalty that too few establishment Republicans send the other way to conservatives when the establishment gets beaten.
In the next two years, conservatives are going to have some fun fights within the GOP to move beyond a cliched defense of free markets into really articulating a vision for defending free markets and what it means. At the same time, it will be forced to deal rationally and charitably with the issue of immigration. And it will have an opportunity to drive out those who now think the time is right to give up on fiscal conservatism or social conservatism. Primary season 2014 should be spectacular.
Compromise? Like hell. We’re going to keep fighting. And we will find someone who actually doesn’t speak conservatism like he learned it from Rosetta Stone last week. For those of you on the left licking your chops thinking this spells doom — the nation just spent $6 billion for the status quo. I’ll take my chances.
http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/07/status-quo...
Well said Erick.
I agree. Will add that Marco Rubio learned Wednesday morning that the traditional Cuban vote is jackshit going forward.

I saw young people of all shades standing in long lines for hours, some to cast their first vote ever, and those kids will cherish the time they spent bringing their own change to this nation.

Manifest destiny died on Tuesday__finally__good riddance IMO.
