You still lose.
For the last time, Obama was only down for 2 weeks following the first debate. That changed after the secind debate. Nate Silver debunked the Sandy myth.
Karl Rove sent Gretchen off the set in disbelief, prompting her to ask, "Are you using some sort of Republican math?"
Classic.
As for Sandy, maybe it was because Mittens proposed privatizing FEMA.
Boston Globe - Before the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy along the East Coast, the candidates were deadlocked at 47 percent each. Pew researchers attribute Obama’s growth in popularity in part to how he handled the storm’s aftermath which earned a 69 percent approval rating among likely voters including the majority of swing voters.

The Members Behind the Purge of Conservatives

"This is just the opening salvo in a long war. House leaders have made it clear that they will punish conservatives for standing by their election promises."

Erick Erickson: As the sun rises this morning we can look at John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy and know the opposition is not just across the aisle, but in charge of our own side in the House of Representatives. All the time and energy I would otherwise have to spend to convince conservatives that these gentlemen would be a problem for the GOP has been spared. They’ve proven it themselves.

That type of thinking is why the Republican Party needs to stop catering to evangelicals. Besides, most of you church-folk are Democrats who more than willing to soak up government benefits, but that abortion stuff keeps you from expressing your true feelings.
The future is in fiscal conservatism. There is no future in religious fundamentalism. Many conservatives are turned of by that illogical stuff. So they stay home, as in this election.
You'll have to jog my memory. Who touted religious fundamentalism in this last election?

The liberal machine always pulls out the abortion issue when they have nothing else to run on. You actually pointed out the obvious - and the conundrum - in the Democrat Party.

A lot of black democrats ARE "church-folk" and many are against abortion and gay marriage. Yet, the majority still voted for Obama. Just like the "church-folk" Hispanics.

Two obscure republicans opened their mouths and put their foot in it. They were ostricized...by republicans.

There's nothing wrong with saying you're pro-life as a republican. And I don't recall any republican presidential candidate going any further than that.

When you say you are "pro-life", everybody understands that you are opposed to abortion under any circumstances. Very few reasonable people support that position.

How about just dropping any mention of abortion from the party platform and simply responding to any questions by saying that abortion is a personal choice?

Guys like Akin and Mourdock did not just "put their foot in their mouth."

They were religious fanatics blinded to reality by their religion.

Ironic that so many voted for Obama because of his "handling" of Hurricane Sandy.

Yet, thousands are still without power.

Prophetic Bible books predicted the Arab Spring four thousand years ago!!!

Same predictions says that Egypt will become radicalize, Shariah Law, same with Iran, Iraq, Syria, lebanon, even ... FRANCE!!!

Yes, France WILL become a Muslim republic!!!

Liberals are ignorant making that happen!!! Taxing the professionals and businesses 60% tax they are leaning France in record numbers!!!

Just like people in America are leaving to the future Republic of TEXAS!!! Where no liberal will be allowed to enter!! They have guns and know how to defend themselves from the liberals which are parasites of the rich.

The Bible claims there will be a CALIPHATE in the Middle East.

Who said I'm opposed to abortion under any circumstances? Wasn't me. The majority of us pro-lifers take the same stance. Rape, incest and the mother's health are the only exceptions.

Abortion is a blight on this country. To not take a stand against it for political gain is cowardly. That's what liberals do.

Again, which republican presidential candidate took it any further than taking a stance and professing to be pro-life?

President Obama’s re-election carries climate mandate

President Obama has been re-elected to his second term as president. Friends of the Earth President Action Erich Pica had the following statement in response:

"Congratulations to President Obama on his re-election and thanks for his acknowledgement in his acceptance speech of the ‘destructive power of a warming planet.’ It is ironic that the outcome of a campaign so marked by the climate silence of both candidates would be definitively influenced by Superstorm Sandy, but history will show that the winds of Hurricane Sandy blew President Obama back into office."

The endorsement of Judas Christie helped more than anything actually accomplished by Obama.

Now Christie wants a $40 billion payback from the taxpayers.

Republicans are fools if they give this traitor the time of day.

His nomination in 2016 would be the end of the Republican Party.
