People shouldn't promise what they can't deliver.
Then again, you voted for someone who does that all the time. So it's no wonder.

An ER Doc who voted for Romney? I definitely call bu11shit on you. A complete and utter load of crap.

Voted Romney?? where did I say that??

Otherwise, you may have formed another impression of us if you are just another client looking for cough syrup or staff. I can ensure you that few of us would have said openly we did not vote for Obama . You liberals would be mad enough to fake any injury to sue and get at these "evil docs" that doen't kowtow you.

I have to disagree. I seldom agree with the liberal "women" stance on the issues but at the same time I respect their right to disagree. for the most part liberal "women" are misguided, my opinion, but it is not a reason to slur and demean their character.

I am not to disagree, but I won't disagree with your disagreement, unless of course, you disagree. In that case I just vote present.

Do Conservative Pundits Ever Have To Be Right?

Conservative hand-wringing in the wake of President Obama's victory continues unabated, with both voters and strategists venting their frustration about the GOP's loss, while condemning the conservative media for leading followers to believe a GOP victory was imminent.(A landslide!)

Instead of being honest down the homestretch, conservative pundits on Fox News and at places like the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post fed Republicans a steady diet of falsehoods and Pollyannaish analysis that ran counter to the clear polling data about the state of the race.

Some Republican leaders are now promoting wholesale changes. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal urged Republicans to "stop being the party of stupid" and to reject the anti-intellectualism that has often defined the political movement. "We've also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism," he told Politico.

But "dumbed-down conservatism" is what drives the GOP Noise Machine. It's what Fox, Rush Limbaugh and other conservative media have been pushing for years and posting healthy profits in the process. If there's going to be widespread change within the conservative movement it's going to have to include the right-wing media. And for that to happen, accountability has to be finally introduced into the equation.

The Dubya List
I’m not being snarky when I say that the best thing George W. Bush has done for conservatism has been to withdraw almost completely from the national stage, and to devote himself to private life and doing low-key good works. He has nothing else useful to say or to do in American politics. So, bless him, he’s saying nothing.
I thought about Bush’s good example this morning when I read this quote from Dick Morris, from “Hannity”:
Sean, I hope people aren’t mad at me about it… I spoke about what I believed and I think that there was a period of time when the Romney campaign was falling apart, people were not optimistic, nobody thought there was a chance of victory and I felt that it was my duty at that point to go out and say what I said. And at the time that I said it, I believe I was right.
Got that? Dick Morris believed it was his “duty” to go on TV and say that Romney was going to win this thing, because everybody on Team Romney at the time was depressed. It’s hard to know whether Morris really believed what he was saying, as he claims to, but there can be no doubt that he saw his role as cheerleading for the Republican candidate, not offering straightforward analysis.
Dick Morris is a conservative figure who really ought to never be heard from again. He’s a hack. I say give him a Dubya Award for Meritorious Service To The Conservative Movement, and push him off the stage.(“Meritorious” in the sense that, say, a boss who is firing an employee for screwing up makes an insincere but face-saving statement about how much the company has benefited from the employee’s service, and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors).
Which other prominent conservatives should get a Dubya? Newt Gingrich is one. He has nothing left to say or to do, except go on whatever the GOP version of the dinner theater circuit is, where celebrity has-beens go to live out their senescence. Karl Rove is another. Megyn Kelly, bless her, sealed Rove’s place on the Dubya List, when, listening skeptically on Election Night to Rove trying to spin bad Romney news into a GOP victory, said to him:“Is this just math you do to make yourself feel better as a Republican, or is this real?”
We need a lot more of the spirit of Megyn Kelly among public conservatives.

Satisfy a woman solo?? I thought you liberals were non-judgmental, but oh was I wrong again. What is so "demeaning" about it? BEcause you say so? Does it matter to you that my wife has been pulling this from the get-go as well?
You libs cannot help yourself, can you? Sharing another girl with your wife is a great experience. Even liberals could get enough time off their schedule to stop being angry, go and get a lap dance and have fun.
The election is over. Keep celebrating, just let others be...
Good idea. How 'bout you follow your own advice, "doc"...

The constitution of the United States (and that of the Republic of Texas, for instance) both grant the right for the states of the Union to secede. There is nothing unconstitutional on petition for it (there is something unconstitutional on CONSPIRE to do it, but that is another thing).
Our country is a democracy, so I guess we should put this issue for, We, the people, to vote and decide.
I say, let's set next Fourth of July (2013) as nationwide secession referendum day.
All states of the United States should have the right to vote and decide if they want to stay as state or become an independent country. From March to June, both sides (the ones who want to secede and the ones who want to stay) would have the right to campaign for their respective causes.
If the population of a state decides, through referendum, they want to leave the Union they should be allowed to do so, no bad feelings.
Someone please put this idea as a petition in the White House site.

Here are the election results from four cities won by Obama that also happen to be the four most dangerous cities in the nation.

1. St. Louis, MO -Obama 56%-Romney 42%
2. Camden, NJ -Obama 68%-Romney 31%

3. Detroit, MI-Obama 98%-Romney 2%

Voter fraud anyone? Even a dictator who shoots dissenters can't get 98% of the vote.

4. Flint, MI- Obama 62%-Romney -37%
