Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

It was a great election, the only dummy not voted out was Bachman.
The women and the Latinos went out and voted in huge numbers, as did the Jews. They said "hell no" to Romney and his billions, he couldn't buy the election afterall. I'm so proud of the American people.
The best part of this past election was watching Karl Rove's meltdown on TV when he realized his impotence and irrelevancy.

and all those billions spent by the Koch brother and Sheldon Adelson with no return.....

It's going to be a big mess. But at least women can still get abortions at the taxpayers' expense and free birth control.
And Latinos can be proud that just made the immigration problem much worse while the economy goes off the cliff.
These were apparently the most important things on the agenda this election.
God performs more abortions than PP.
Read the <gag> 'good book' sometime.

The GOP are fossils in the Information Age.

The country adamantly rejected the lies, and voted these reality challenged, math rejects into oblivion.

Your team lost... BIG
Too big to ignore. There will be significant GOP policy changes or the party will perish.

When she is, I'll pin up the full page photo that was in the Rolling Stone showing her in the back of a pickup truck with a pack of smokes on her sleeve and a pint of moonshine in her back pocket.

<quoted text> Yeah, Obama is altready wanting the other side to help him. He calls it working together, but actually Obama needs help, because he don't know what he is doing. All he has done in 4 years was going on vacations, tv talk shows, and showing kids films, and spending money.
And the unimagineable--hypocrite Clinton, who in private conversations has more than once said how Obama didn't know what he was doing, helped get him re-elected.

Who Wants a President Who Will Lie to You...Asks Bill Clinton?!

This was the strangest campaign in electoral history. Just when you thought you had seen or heard it all, former President Bill Clinton just had to add a "through the looking glass" quality to the rhetoric that some are calling "ironic."

But truthfully, not even "rank hypocrisy" aptly describes what erupted from the King of Perjury's mouth:

So let me get this straight. An ex-President who was impeached for LYING (perjury, obstruction), defended a current President who lies and has a full time cover-up team (Benghazi, Fast and Furious....and the list goes on...) who is accusing the squeaky clean Mormon who doesn't drink, smoke or even swear of being the liar.

Here's a gem of a quote from Bill Clinton:

“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true? When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar."

From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

helluva guy...his own staffers couldn't even get home...yep, republican

The fact remains that I served my country in time of war and you did not. People like you tried to undermine our efforts. I wonder how many of our soldiers and Marines died due to the confidence that was given to our enemies because of you and your friend's war protests and the fact that they knew that people like you didn't support them and, in fact, were against them, as was proven time and time again by the reception they received from people like you upon their return. You're a coward piece of sh't. Don't lecture me about serving my country.
You sound like that guy from Connecticut. He served during the Vietnam War too. Never even saw Vietnam but implied he did.

I watched every minute of his meltdown, any other news station would have had him removed in a straight jacket. That was the longest I have watched Fox News in years, it was must see tv.

Obama will say Yes to anything and everything if its going to give him the presidency.
so President Obama supported health care reform because he knew conservatives would vote for him
he supported the dream act for illegal immigrants cause it would get him votes from conservatives like Jan Brewer
he withdrew troops from Iraq because neocons would then vote for him
he supports same sex marriage cause that would get him the evangelical vote

unlike Romney who always kept the same position for at least 60 seconds

I like this comment from the clip: Why did Romney Lose?

1) Underestimating the ever increasing number of takers who want "free" stuff.
2) Underestimating the power of the stupid to be suckered into believing cute slogans like "hope", "change", and "forward".
3) The refusal to take the fight to Obama on things like Fast & Furious and Benghazi.
4) Trying to pander to and placate the "social" conservatives and holy rollers by focusing on issues other than the economy.
5) The inability to make Obama own up to the terrible record accumulated in his first term.


I fully agree with it.

Why didnt Romney take the fight to Obama and ask him about the 2008 election lies (promise) to pull US troops out of Afghanistan within 11 months of taking office?

Why didnt he put it to Americans that Obama sent MORE troops

Theres no such thing as clean campaign, Obama played dirty in those adverts, Romney should have used the empty promises from 2008 to fight back.
GW Bush is not the type that would have let Obama get away with it if he were in Romney's shoes.

Romney's camp should take the blame for the loss. They did not lose because Obama ran a better campaign. Obama failed and the Repuiblicans should have used his failure to outdst him.

Those who say the Republicans were an obstruction and the reason Obama failed are politically immature. That happens all over the world where the houses (Congress and Senate in the case of the US) are split between the parties. Its not the Republicans that said Obama must give bailouts to companies that secure jobs in China, and fail to support small business at home.

Obama should have been nailed to the cross for his dismal failure. Theres a lot of ammunition that could have been used to get this incompetent out of the White House.

He says the best is yet to come? What best, what is it that he thinks he can do which he failed to do in the past four years in an economy that has gotten worse since he took over. The US debt has mounted since Obama took office. He blame Bush for his inability to bring that under control. How can he bring it under control when he hands free money over to companies in what is suppose to be a capitalist society?

Hang on Homer because it is about to take a big hit. People are pulling out and going into cash. If they start buying the yuan we are in big trouble. Wait till these capital gains tax raises and loopholes close. Won't be worth much. It is no coincidence that the stocks most hurt right now is high dividend stocks.
