Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

And what really struck me: not because of a lack of funds!

Romney had billions! Counting right wing PAC's!

As the defacto leader of the Republicans, he could have marshaled all that dough and spent it wisely.

Instead He relied on what he understands: old media.
TV. Ads every two minutes attacking. You saw em?

I know 20 and 30 somethings who don't watch Tv. They use tablets and smartphones to catch shows and scores. They don't pay for cable. Get a few local channels on a Tv if they have one. Since Bush sank the place many work 3 jobs and have no time anyway. In short the world has changed: a real leader knows how to change with it. Mitt Romney was a loser 6 months ago. As were all Republicans. He ran because no one else wanted a beat down? What a waste of billions!

People like carol who praise Romney as a smart business man and leader are just blind to reality?

He dropped the ball! Your ball. He blew it! You should be mad at him: like most Republican high ups are today. His performance was shameful. His grade is fail. He may have done permanent damage. I can only hope!

Democrats: we got this! Kick republicans out for good? Ohhhhhhhhhh yeah!

How many ads were about Obama's policies improving the economy?

Seeing that the vast majority of Americans said it was all about the economy?

Odd, isn't it? That he won anyway?

Mitt Romney just doesn't get it. He didn't get it when he was campaigning for president and he doesn't get it now.
In his infamous remarks, secretly taped before rich supporters in May, the Republican dismissed 47 percent of American voters who, he said, were people "dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them."
Last week, trying to make sense of his defeat to other rich donors in a conference call, he sang the same insulting tune but with different lyrics. The New York Times reported that the nominee said he lost because the Obama campaign had targeted African-Americans, Hispanics and young people for policy gifts. "In each case, they were very generous in what they gave to those groups," he said.
In other words, the moochers were people who could be bought off -- in the case of young women, with free contraceptives under Obamacare; in the case of Latinos, with a proposed immigration reform. Never mind that Mr. Romney also offered gifts -- to military contractors, with no cuts in the Pentagon budget; to the rich, with no rise in their taxes. Never mind that the nominee had gone from moderate to conservative and his flip-flops had rendered him unbelievable.
If Mr. Romney had the personal responsibility he found so lacking in other Americans, he might realize that he simply was a poor candidate and the fault of the loss was entirely his own.

RELEVANT voters know: Republicans Bush/Cheney sank our economy.

It's almost like Republicans are happy to let Democrats clean up the mess.

THE ECONOMY IS BETTER NOW.

Your side left it a mess! carol: your guys borrowed $5 trillion. Doubled the debt. And did massive handouts to the richest on earth! Wake up!

You lost for a reason: and it's not because Obama is a liar. Or that he sucks. He is doing a great job with a broken place left to him by your guys.

Everything I have seen shows Romney lost by his own words and strategies. Learn from that not bash the winners.

The Liberal/Democrat offers handouts whether than a Hand Up!! Conservatives believe- Work teaches one the value of money while… Welfare teaches one the value of other people’s money sounds pretty much like Obama’s and the Liberals/Democrats message!!

Now that the entertainment is over – now that the world’s longest sporting event is finally over for FOX and CNN, Americans will have to go back to the day-to-day lives they managed to avoid during this latest Presidential election.

The reality bites once again, that in 2012, America remains more divided than ever in terms of wealth, in terms of values, in terms of Prozac, and in terms of tribal identity politics.

Romney seemed liked Wall StreetÂ’s ideal President, but he wasnÂ’t ruthless enough it seems. You have to really want the power. Mitt put on a good show, but played too soft to actually win.

Obama proved that he was worthy of the banking elite’s endorsement four years ago. Remember when Obama left the campaign trail with his dancing partner John McCain in 2008, to help to spearhead the bankers’ takeover of the White House in 2008 (Bush Jr was fishing at the time), pushing through Democratic support for the first banker bailout? Obama had to do it because the Wall Street banking elite ‘made him’ in terms of his candidacy, and they could also break him too. Obama’s family connections with the Geithners didn’t hurt either, nor did Soros’ love of Obama. He proved that he could follow orders.

Obama’s campaign strap line this year was “FORWARD”, an interesting choice of word, blunt and brutal – one straight out of Mao Se Tung’s China, or Stalin’s Russia. Is this a hint of things to come?

America has never been so divided as it is today in 2012
Obama came to divide and conquer!

Obama won, America lost.

A second civil war is always a very really possibility. As the country continues to become more and more divided secession is more and more likely to occur. The similarities between what happened in the 1850s to 1860 are extremely similar to what is occurring right now. History is repeating itself as the states have different beliefs such as though for a strong federal government and those who want it weaker for stronger states.
A realistic view of US civil war would likely be this:
Side One:
Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C.
VS
Side Two:
Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and West Virginia.
States that could join either side:
Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, and Virginia.
Side two would have advantage in food(Nearly all the farm grown food), Nuclear weapons(would have nearly 100% of them), oil(Again almost all the oil and shale), and likely most of the US military as the vast majority of them come from the states on side 2. Most gun owners are also located in side 2. Side 1 I honestly can't think of any advantage they would have other than population and most of the bankers.
asker.com
You came with a1 sided point of view. We dont only have numbers but we have gangs that number in the hundred thousands & they all have weapons. Not shotguns but choppers. Shyt that will chop your body in half. Not only that but they're already trained to kill. Your nuclear weapon theory is bogus. Nuclear ware would kill everyone so thats off the table. Not only are ya'll outnumbered but it's like a 15/1 margin. Since you gave us the bankers, money makes the world go around so what we can't grow in food we'll jusr buy. What weapons we dont have we'll just buy. Lastly, this aint the 1800s. The states you named as side two are mostly white states, the minorities. Black & hispanics outnumber whites now so where's your advantage now? If yiu don't know i'll let you in on a lil secret. Wars are won by numbers. You see we couldn't win iraq until we implemented the surge. You better think about what ya'll keep asking for. Trail talk it, but ya'll can't take it!

Nothing, least of all money, could have saved him. Considering the Republican clown car alternatives he was all the party had to go with. They need to work out a few issues to say the least. The fact that in 5 of the last 6 Presidential campaigns they have lost the popular vote should in itself be a wake up call. From the looks of things on here....ain't happening so far.

One thing is certain now – with the amount of scandals and skeletons piling up in the White House basement after four years of Democrat rule, it’s possible that Obama will not make it to the finish line in 2016 without escaping impeachment or some other legal crisis. It will be interesting to watch how this crime drama plays out.

Like with any modern democracy, for better or for worse, America will get the government it deserves.

So itÂ’s more wars, more Guantanamo, more drones, less rights, more prisons, more foreclosures, more stimulus, more homeless, more class warfare and more hollow rhetoric. Oh, and more golf.
The constitutionally protected liberal media will circle the wagon for Obama.

If a black lady lies and two white descent men question her then it is racism!

The liberal media crated the politically correct framework to get away with anything. We lost. All we can do now is load our guns and get ready for the coming hunger spams!

Everything to you is funny. This is the mark of immaturity. That makes your worldview rather cheap. So is being an Entitlement Frump.
If I talk ethics, you criticize religion. If I talk morals, you criticize religion. If I talk humanity or compassion, you criticize religion. Your head is wrapped around Religion like dirt around a rough diamond. You need to be removed from the better side of humanity.
Your constant equating of good with your hated "religion" betrays your underlying evil intentions and hatred for what is right. Theft is wrong regardless of religion. Murder and assault are wrong regardless of religion. Lying is wrong regardless of religion. Your attempt to link what is right and lawful with a "forced religious belief" leads to this: remove religion so that you can have your immoral and unlawful world.
You are a Boy Messiah Entitlement Frump with a big mouth.

Problem is, all you talk is the divisive hatred your handlers feed you.

You're anti-abortion because some religious nutjob told you to be.

It's that simple.

In a free nation, your ethical and moral views belong to you.

You cannot impose them on other free citizens.

Apparently, your getting creamed in the election taught you nothing.

Americans rejected your religion based views.

Funny how you can't refute a single thing I've said about religion. About how it divides people, rather than unite them. How religion has caused more death and suffering than any other force in history.

You love the cover it gives you for your hate and control agenda.

Get lost, nitwit.
