In what parallel universe do losers get to ask questions??

Get over it!! The American people have delivered the verdict, and your side lost decisively. You are out of touch with your fellow citizens.

With your second amendment delusions of grandeur!!

Crybabies like you don't have the good sense to keep your mouth shut.

Now shut up and deal with it!!

<quoted text>Your premise is not valid.
The enthusiasm you have for obamma was NOT matched by entusiasm from people who voted for romney.
He was a non-choice and we knew it!
You act as though we are as emotionally distraught as you would have been if obamma lost.
Simply not the case.
I AM dissapointed that romney lost, but he was NOT my choice to run against obamma!
"elections" became a joke long before any of us were born!
Your "victory" is as much of a sham as my "defeat"!
Awe

Are you daft?

Romney 'won' the Confederacy vote! LOL

He lost the:

Women's vote
Latino vote
Minorities vote
18-29 year olds vote
The Mormon vote
The Popular vote
The Electoral college
The 'swing' states including Florida
Both his former states
And...
Dems control the Senate!

Landslide is indeed the correct term.

This GOP medieval retrograde thinking has no place in our future.

How quickly you forget to admitting to being overweight in one of your more lucid posts.

Back when you were bragging about your consumption of sugar. Real good for diabetics.

I don't forget, Lorac. You weave a web of lies, I watch for the contradictions. Your diaherrea of the mouth causes you to make conflicting statements.

Here's the truth about Republiclowns alternate reality;

"The most histrionic indicator of the GOP Establishment’s enlistment in the post-fact alternative universe was the pillorying of Nate Silver, whose FiveThirtyEight statistical model (and accompanying blog) in the Times analyzing all major national and state surveys on a daily basis consistently found Obama a fairly prohibitive favorite in the race. Conservative commentators disgorged thousands and thousands of words to impugn Silver as a liberal hack, accusing him of slanting the facts to fit a political bias. Freud couldn’t have imagined a clearer case study in projection. For backup, the anti-Silver forces turned to the likes of Jay Cost of The Weekly Standard, whose learned, lengthy, and chart-laden explanations of why Silver and the polls were wrong could be considered scientific in the same way creation science is. An even sadder case was Michael Barone, the once-respected co-author of The Almanac of American Politics who in 2008 compared Sarah Palin to FDR and who this year abandoned his fact-based standard for a faith-based standard underestimating minority turnout; he predicted a 315 electoral-vote victory for Romney. Like Rove, Barone called nearly every battleground state wrong.(The professional pollster most admired by the right, the GOP-leaning Rasmussen, didn’t bat much higher.) Silver got all 50 states right.

Some of Silver’s detractors didn’t bother to concoct their own bogus analyses but just tried to defame and bully him. In the waning days of October, Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe discounted FiveThirtyEight’s finding that Obama had (then) a 73.6 percent probability of victory by ranting that “anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a toss-up right now is such an ideologue they should be kept away from typewriters, computers, laptops, and microphones for the next ten days, because they’re jokes.” Dean Chambers, a conservative blogger who gained popularity on the right by setting up a junk-science Romney-boosting site called UnSkewed Polls, implied that FiveThirtyEight was skewed by Silver’s sexual orientation. Chambers wrote that Silver is “of very small stature, a thin and effeminate man with a soft-sounding voice that sounds almost exactly like the ‘Mr. New Castrati’ voice used by Rush Limbaugh on his program.”(To which Silver responded with a classic Tweet:“Unskewedpolls argument: Nate Silver seems kinda gay +???= Romney landslide!”) Scarborough’s and Chambers’s efforts to discredit FiveThirtyEight mirrored their party’s attempts to demonize the nonpartisan organizations that questioned Romney and Ryan’s voodoo economics as well as Jack Welch’s assault on the Bureau of Labor Statistics. You challenge the imaginary numbers of the post-fact GOP at your peril.


The GOP’s wholesale retreat from reality perhaps found its ultimate expression in a Peggy Noonan blog at Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal that may achieve “Dewey Defeats Truman” immortality. Writing on Election Eve, she informed the faithful that “Romney’s slipping into the presidency” and will win.“All the vibrations are right,” she explained, citing such numerical evidence as crowd sizes in Pennsylvania and Ohio (both of which Romney would lose the next day) and yard signs. In Florida, she “saw Romney signs, not Obama ones,” adding that she’d heard tell of similar visitations in both Ohio and “tony Northwest Washington, D.C.” "
