Looks like the election wasn't over the economy. It was Abortion and VietNam.

You do realize that late term abortions are only legal when the health of the mother is at risk, Right???
My God, you are running in circles screaming how these women are rushing to the abortion clinic & having a doctor yank their babies part way out & stabbing them with scissors.
My God, Carol, you really need to get some professional help.
You know some of these dropping-IQ-points Faux swallowers might have a civil suit against them and the Grumpy Old Pricks, but you've got to take into account that they would have had to be worth something to begin with to be awarded damages. Pro-Life literature started out using photographs of of actual babies having been disposed of in Nazi death camps in the Holocaust as depictions of first term abortions...what are you going do with a group that's willing to lie like that and then hide behind (their own)religion.

to believe this was the basis of the POTUS and all

Everything is relevant. You decry the fact that insurance companies cover birth control or abortion. This is a imposition of your religious beliefs upon others, therefore, one could also say that Viagra or prostate surgery should not be covered. Women could make the argument that they don't want to pay for these things.
The point is that everything should be covered.
"silly"
I do not try to impose my religious beliefs on anyone. I have no problem with an insurance company that offers coverage for BC or abortion/murder, as long as they factor in the cost when establishing their rates. I do not want or need that coverage or coverage to purchase Viagra and do not want to pay for a service I do not need or want.
Why do you even bring up prostate surgery? Why not hysterotomy?

I'm not the one having a fit about contraception & then complaining about the number of abortions.
That would be you & your right whiner buddies.
I'm not the one telling women what to do with their bodies & gays that they can't marry & then blame others for wanting to control people.
That would be you.
are you honestly are that stupid? I don't care what you do. If you wish to put your manhood in another mans poop then have at it you sicko but do not expect me to be willing to pay for your disease or the outcome of your actions. If we have no say in your choices,actoins or behavior the we have no responibility to pay for them.

IT had nothing to do with, NOT I had... Oh, and I'll leave you with all these great things that the election means to America (kudos to Rachel Maddow)(1)“We are not going to have a Supreme Court that will overturn Roe vs. Wade. There will be no more Antonin Scalias and Samuel Alitos added to this court.”
(2)“We’re not going to repeal health reform. Nobody’s going to kill Medicare and make old people in this generation — or any other generation — fight it out on the open market to try to get themselves health insurance. We’re not going to do t
hat.”
(3)“We’re not going to give the 20% tax cut to millionaires and billionaires, and expect [cutting] programs like food stamps and kids’ health insurance to cover that tax cut.”
(4)“We’re not going to make you clear it with your boss if you want to get birth control with the insurance plan that you’re on.”
(5)“We are not going to redefine rape.”
(6)“We are not going to amend the constitution to stop gay people from getting married.”
(7) We’re not going to double down on Guantanamo.
(8)“We’re not eliminating the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, or Housing at the Federal level.”
(9)“We are not going to spend two trillion dollars on the military, that the military does not want.”
(10)“We are not scaling back on student loans because the country’s NEW plan is that you should borrow money from your parents.”
(11)“We are not vetoing the Dream Act, we are not ‘self-deporting.’”
(12)“We are not letting Detroit go bankrupt.”
(13)“We are not starting a trade war with China on Inauguration Day in January.”
(14)“We are not going to have — as a president — a man who once led a mob of friends to run down a scared gay kid to hold him down and forcibly cut his hair off with a pair of scissors while that kid cried and screamed for help.(And there was NO apology, not EVER.)”
(15)“We are not going to have a Secretary of State John Bolton. We are not going to bring Dick Cheney Back. We are not going to have a foreign policy shop stocked with architects of the Iraqi war, we are not going to do it … We had the choice to do that if we wanted to do that, as a country, and we said no, last night, loudly.”

Nothing good can come of that.
Former Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan says that he and presidential nominee Mitt Romney lost the election because of so many urban voters.

Just a guess but most pundits are now reporting that Rice's explanations were straight off talking points prepared by , who else, the CIA.

Damned if it doesn't look like the CIA might have had reason to fudge the truth a tad bit__Oh my__waddaya know?

Maybe we'll eventually learn, maybe not__presently the media is caught up in "sex, lies and e-mails."

I would rather see John Kerry in the role of Secretary of State.

The nation wasn't nearly as pizzed off as it was at A. BushCo and B. the added insult of Sarah Palin.

Da Bammy blew the Romney-Ryan duo right off the political map__Romney is gone forever and lyin Ryan will likely spend the balance of his career as a lobbyist for Kock Bros Sparkle Towel division.
