I also knew Obama would be re-elected as did over half the nation. Only Fox News and Tea Party zealots were unaware. Right wing Republicans were worried all along. Keeping Mitt silent was their best shot at getting any votes.

You nitwit, your location is phony, as in - you put it there.

If Topix had id'd your isp location, it would be in blue print, not gray. Same as 'hidden locations' show up in gray. DUH

Nice try, dummy.

You trolls will stop at nothing in creating your phony sockpuppets.

Only question is whether you're a Nobraina or Waxturd sockpuppet.

But there's no question you're a nitwit with a fake location. Possibly Gunner trying to ease back in as a limey.

ok...no sarcasm here. just a real question. what company would go into business if they didn't make a profit? thats my question.
i dont think its right when mega corporations make extravagant amounts of money at the expense of their employees and to their buying public. i do think that this applies to the major majority of companies in America. i also STRONGLY agree that the unions have priced themselves out of jobs, especially the hiring of new employees. And then look! there goes another company, outsourcing to china or thailand or india.
union wages allow for a simple middle class existence...without unions, you won't even get that. nobody likes being shit on...with the exception of...well, every right winger on topix. you defend those who drive up your workload while driving down your wages and pocketing the difference...

hostess was going to tank anyway, sorry if i have zero sympathy for hostess execs...they can comfort themselves with another home and a new jag. The worker's road ahead was only going to get worse, in the long run they're better off

It's been more than a week since Election Day, and the process through which the GOP figures out where everything went terribly wrong in its quest to retake the White House is ongoing. It's definitely a debate worth having: President Barack Obama's reelection bucked many of the conventionally accepted historical trends relating to incumbents in a poorly-performing economy.

Eventually, I feel pretty confident that those tasked with diagnosing the failure to unseat Obama in 2012 will eventually settle on something like, "Well, we ended up with a pretty implausible nominee who couldn't relate to normal human-Americans (and who, indeed, often demonstrated an open contempt for them) after the nativist clique that took over the party in 2010 ran off many of our more talented prospects from the race and kept them on the sidelines. And our long primary season was pretty goofy and alienating. Also, as subpar as our candidate was, it probably didn't help matters that we spent the lion's share of the campaign season slagging him publicly until he turned in that one decent debate performance. In retrospect, maybe we shouldn't have done that. Oh, and why did we force our candidate to run away from his signature legislative achievement -- Massachusetts health care reform -- when that was the very thing that first drew us to him as a potential presidential aspirant in the first place? That seems like a pretty big cock-up on our part, too."

For once, you're right!!

That's why you got stomped on Nov. 6th.

Then this should work for you..........
This was the Democrats platform on the subject:
Faith has always been a central part of the American story, and it has been a driving force of progress and justice throughout our history. We know that our nation, our communities, and our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith and the countless acts of justice and mercy it inspires. Faith-based organizations will always be critical allies in meeting the challenges that face our nation and our world—from domestic and global poverty to climate change and human trafficking. People of faith and religious organizations do amazing work ...
The Democratic platform referenced God more often that the Republican platform in 2000 and 2004. And the 2008 GOP platform only mentioned God twice.


Then why did Democrats try to remove the mention of God from the 2012 platform?

One Million Strong Against Mitt Romney in 2012 via PoliticusUSA:

&#8206;"...Some on the left who are fearing an Obama cave on this issue are way off base. This isn’t 2010. The pressure has shifted. By not cutting a deal when they had the chance and agreeing to automatic cuts, Republicans sowed the seeds for their own demise. They gambled everything on Obama not being reelected, and they lost.

Obama can win by doing nothing. Republican have realized this, and are rapidly advancing towards full cave in mode. Republicans designed the fiscal cliff, and now they are the ones teetering towards the edge."

Jokes about rednecks irritates the Tea Party:
So here goes some of their most hated.
You might be a redneck if your wife can climb a tree faster than your cat.
Your house doesn't have curtains but your truck does.
You consider your license plate personalized because your father made it.
You've used a toilet brush to scratch your back.
You missed your 5th grade graduation because you were on jury duty.
You think fast food is killing a deer at 65.
You let your 12 year old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.
You might be a liberal if:

you've ever held up a grocery store line trying to pick between plastic, which isn't biodegradable, or paper, which cuts down innocent trees

You paid $50,000 for a beer keg once used by John F. Kennedy.

You are against prayer in public schools, even before math tests.

You harrass little old ladies for wearing fur, but not big, mean bikers for wearing leather.

You cried out, "Where did I go wrong!" when your son or daughter joined the Marine Corps.

the years 1966 through 1974 are vague memories because of the effects of drug abuse.

You're the idiot who stole the Romney/Ryan sign off my front lawn.
