You missed Karl Rove's nervous breakdown on live TV??
They lied to you and you believed it. That makes you a sucker!!
Romney never held a lead, it was all FAUX propaganda. The momentum story was bogus.
Because if either were true, Rmoney would have won the election.
See Nate Silver's polls, the only one that proved correct both before and after votes were counted.
Your claim that a photo op after Sandy destroyed all Rmoney's lead and momentum is so dumb, only you could come up wirth such a weak idea.
There was never a chance that Rmoney could win. Obama 'gave' him the first debate to keep it from becoming a complete rout well before the election.
If not for that, Rmoney would have lost by 8 Million votes, not the 4.5 Million he won by.
You keep grasping fer as long as yer little straw holds out. Maybe they'll invites yew to dinnuh @ that "Shady Pines" place for bocacarats on pulled pork night sometime too!

That's funny. I've had to tell at least a half dozen liberals on here to lighten' up during the past four years.
Actually, I think you were one of them.
It's the sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek that a lot of liberals just don't get...the ones who take everything so literally.
Like walking on eggshells.

And she will pay back every last red cent too. Even if Obama insists on you paying for it.
So there.
if your daughter was a baby mama collecting way more than $10K in welfare payments with more $$ for each additional kid and no father in the picture, and NEVER paying any of it back, the Topix hypocrites would have no problem with that.

Would you be just as excited as me if a Black Republican emerged in the next 4 years and became the new POTUS?
Conservatives wouldn't be called racists anymore and liberals would be screaming into their pillows all over the country.
Sure.

We see how well it worked when they hired Michael Steele as RNC Chairman. DUH

Or the ever funny pimp, Herman Cain, with the 9-9-9 stupidity only Emaam was fooled by!!

Fact is, if the Republiclowns nominated a black person, the entire white evangelical Teabagger base would turn on them.

That would signal the official end of the Republiclown PArty.

No, they'll nominate another old grayfaced male, and Hillary Clinton will become the next President.

Even though Romney didn't think through his comment made in private and admitted the next day he was "dead wrong" about lumping the 47% who receive some kind of government subsidy with the much smaller percentage who manipulate the system, the point he was making to the small group of campaign contributors he was addressing - however broad-based - was that the 47% probably wouldn't vote for him because of being afraid of losing whatever government subsidies they receive - for whatever reason.
He obviously went too far lumping them altogether and admitted as such, but the reality of the 47% not voting for him was correct.
We have, in fact, become a nanny state. The problem, of course, is Obama couldn't be happier. The more the merrier. By continuing to stifle the private sector, there will be a lot of merriment in this White House.
"Vicious cycle" couldn't have a more clear meaning.
You're, as usual, a fool and a liar. "Initially, Romney defended his view, telling reporters at a news conference shortly after the video was posted that his remarks were "not elegantly stated" and that they were spoken "off the cuff." He didn't disavow them, however, and later adopted as a response when the remarks were raised that his campaign supports "the 100 percent in America."

In an interview Thursday night with Fox News, Romney was asked what he would have said had the "47 percent" comments come up during his debate in Denver on Wednesday night with President Barack Obama.

"Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right," Romney said. "In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong."

Actually, much of the forty-seven percent did vote for him--they're the Red State losers like you.(You are still retiring on SS at 61? How is that possible?)

Like that Benghazi stuff is just going to "go away".
New news question overheard of the day-Where'd Syria get all those weapons, now in al qeada hands.
Big, black flags...
Benghazi is a farce.

FAUX is still pushing it, Rmoney tried during the election, but fell flat on his face.

Most Americans are smart enough to realize that we have little control over events in foreign nations, esp. one that just ended a Civil War.

Blame game is ssooo Republiclown, esp. when they refuse to admit the horrible mistake Bush madein Iraq.

Why aren't they looking into Bush's proven lies in the State of the Union speech??

The lies that cost the USA thousands of troops killed, more thousande maimed, over a Trillion dollars??

And you whine about an attack in Benghazi?? One the CIA was in charge of??

Ask FAUX's hero, David Petraeus. If he wasn't chasing panties, he might have done a better job in Libya.

This is only sour grapes from FAUX, the only network chasing a non-story.

They have to do somehting, after making fools of themselves about the election.

You WOULD think the killing of an ambassador and three other Americans, two of whom were Navy Seals, who begged for help but were denied a farce.

Is editing the CIA report by scratching out al Qaeda and sending out a mouthpiece to lie to the American public a farce too?

Nevermind. We see your sign.
