<quoted text>"I got rid of" is not the same as "I voted against," language challenged...you probably think you will be "getting rid of" several of Obama's cabinet members before 2016, but that isn't because you voted against them--you guys are just being childish, churlish, and chump-like.

I voted Romney because I thought he might have a better chance to make Congress move. Obama has shown little ability to move the levers of government. Obama looks very much like eight years of Bush except he holds the neocons off. Until we give up on the two major parties nothing will change in America and our demise continues to be self inflicted. The Republicans and Democrats have played this phony battle (much like watching pro wrestling)while the treasury has been looted and corporations now operate worldwide with no dedication to any country. I laugh when I see the Stars and Stripes flying outside corporate buildings. These corporations have no interest in country unless they call on the military to grab natural resources. Corporations are happy to use your 18 year old child for military folly but will pass that same American over for cheap labor elsewhere. My family has served in every major war since the French and Indian war. Never again will I allow this to occur unless things change.

Wall Street is just reacting to what the rest of us should be too.

Two republicans misspoke in their zealousy to preserve life at all costs.
Do you know how many republican men there are?
Romney made it quite clear rape was an exception. Women should have been listening to him.
Obama started the war against women and made it the fiasco it became.
That's what they do...start fiascos right before elections.
We still can't afford Planned Parenthood and those adamently against abortion are still forced to pay for it.
Good job. Nice going. You still don't get it.
President Obama, the hero of women, started the war on women? You're totally ought of yer mind.
Listen; the women woke up when they started hearing all that rape talk, and that abortion only in case of rape or incest; and having to prove you've been raped, and personhood.
That, my dear, is maligning women. Telling them that a man in the government has to tell them what to do with their own bodies.
I told you many times; that is never going to happen. The women will have a revolution.
You are hateful against women, and you're a woman yourself. Self hatred is a terrible thing, perhaps you ought to forgive yourself.
You are hateful against your fellow American citizens since in your twisted world, you have been convinced that the poor or working class are undeserving of healthcare services.
God knows what kind of a sicko church you go to.

I guess the solution for GOP getting more Hispanic votes is How Much Free Stuff Can we offer you for your Vote!! Does anyone really think Liberals/Democrats want to solve Immigration? If we solved immigration than the Liberals/Democrats would have to create another Crisis!!

Wahh.
The real question is why can't women pay for their own contraceptives and abortions?

It shouldn't be that surprising. Obama always promises the world but delivers nothing including a bankrupt government department like FEMA.

He's probably hoping there are enough Christian charities and organizations to help them.

I've just watched an election post mortem video on Romney.

2 million less Republicans than 2008 turned out to vote.

Thats a huge number.

Does this mean more Republicans liked McCain than Romney or a case of sheer despondency?

Whatever the reason, Obama did not deserve a second term.

Support and votes from a lot that doesnt understand and that doesnt know why it voted him, PHEW.

We're talking about reaching Hispanic and Latino citizens who share our traditional values but voted overwhelmingly for Obama.
We're not paying attention. That has to change. Romney, frankly, didn't do a good enough job reaching out.
What a riot. Your party, the good old white boy party is now waking up to the demographics of this country!!
50% are women!!
Your party is finished. Now you're going to run a Latino candidate? That's hilarious.

arol I am so sick of hearing about how badly we treat the mexicans and blacks.
Maybe we should put them in charge of government afterall look at the sterling jobs they have done with their countries.
In a few years America will be a slum like their homeland.
The people who for the most part come from mexico Carol are mexicans.

Wall Street and big business has done very, very well during the Obama years. Record corporate . The greed of corporate America and mulinational corporations knows no bounds. In case there is someone out there who still doubts this....they have no loyalty to this country. The economic meltdown should have been proof positive or even corporte apologist stragglers.
It is our government that puts the brakes on that corporate greed on behalf of the citizens of this country.
