wrong again carol:

New Jersey's Chris Christie -- a Republican whose state bore the brunt of the storm -- told CBS News on Tuesday that "cooperation has been great with FEMA here on the ground," while Delaware's Jack Markell -- a Democrat -- told CNN that people in his state have been "really, really impressed by the response of FEMA."

Yes, the young do outnumber the old, and yes, the future belongs to the young. Yes, there are those with vested interests on both lanes of the political racetrack. Yes, the interests of the many eclipsed the interests of the few in this election. Hence, the Obama victory.

Thanks to Obama's energy leadership:
LONDON (Reuters)- The United States will overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world's top oil producer by 2017, the West's energy agency said on Monday, predicting Washington will come very close to achieving a previously unthinkable energy self-sufficiency.

That's a lot of luck.....

Personally, I'd much rather have a lucky President, than an 'unlucky' one.

Wonder if Romney's luck would have held out against a Democrat-heavy senate?

Why should we” Republicans” change our Message to accommodate the Liberals/Democrats intolerance!! Republicans still hold the Majorities of Governorships and State Legislatures and that margin will increase in 2014!!

I just hope we can resist the temptation to say we told ya' so a half million times or more after Obamacare does its Hurricane Sandy impression.
There's no hope for you--you won't even admit you LOST this one more than we won it.“Four presidents in the last century have won 50 percent of the vote twice: Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan, and Obama,” the conservative pundit explained.“It pains me to say that, to put him in with those other three, but it’s a fact. Democrats picked up seats in the House and the Senate. The president is in good shape.… I think there will be a big budget deal. It will be an Obama budget deal much more than a Paul Ryan-type budget deal. Elections have consequences.”

Sucker's bet. He's in a freezer somewhere, and the prop-masters / designers of 'The Walking Dead' have already crafted his mannequin for use in necessary public appearances.

Wonder which brand of ham they decided on?

He needs the Witness Protection program but the Fed feels the Koch brothers 'contract' will suffice.

<quoted text>Constituencies as far back as 1780, have expressed the same fear that their 'way of life' was over, following the National Elections. THEY WERE PROVEN WRONG TOO. The only thing that is 'over', as far as this country's concerned, is the 2012 election cycle, and possibly the continued relevance of certain political parties.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Greece didn't stay the same and California is following in its footsteps. You know, as in how Cali goes, so goes the rest of the country.

How has Texas succeeded in producing a pro-business, pro-growth environment, versus a state like California, which has done just the opposite?

A little story illustrates:

The governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the governor's dog, then bites the governor. The governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie Bambi and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.

He calls animal control. Animal control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 for testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the state $200 for testing it for diseases. The governor goes to the hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and getting his bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for six months while the California Fish and Game Department conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals. The governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a 'coyote awareness program' for residents of the area. The Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

The governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training, re: the nature of coyotes. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.

The governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and tries to attack him and his dog. The governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging.

The governor spent 50 cents on a .380-caliber, hollow-point cartridge. Buzzards ate the dead coyote.

And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not.

MSN - Citizens in 15 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States after TuesdayÂ’s election. These include Louisiana (which led the charge), the Republic of Texas, Kentucky, Colorado, New Jersey, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Oregon. Although this is largely seen as symbolic, the filers in each state still have a month to gather 25,000 signatures to have their peaceful withdrawal from the U.S.A. considered by the president.

Just thought this was interesting. Not that it's going to go anywhere, but wouldn't it be funny if 15 or 20 other states participated - even if it's just symbolic?

That'd be more than half the country.

Can't stay tonight. Later.
I believe Texas already have that option in their constitution! I think!

sounds like a dream:

Texas tied with Mississippi for states having the highest percentage of hourly paid workers earning the minimum wage or less in 2010.
Some 550,000 Texans, or 9.5 percent of hourly paid workers, made the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour or less last year. That's up 76,000 workers, or 16 percent, from 2009, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Monday.
