"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

He won swing state voters because of the way he "handled" Hurricane Sandy...according to CNN.
He won because Romney decided to play it safe when, just the day before Sandy made landfall, Gallup and Rasmussen had him ahead by a 5 and 4 point lead respectively. Source posted last night.
He won because the liberal machine had a methodical method of getting democrat voters to the polls.
He won because too many people had been brainwashed with too many negative Obama campaign ads.
He won because enough voters had reservations about Romney's Mormonism.
Basically, Obama won because he's the luckiest person on the planet.
All polls showed a signficant majority believed we were on the wrong track right up until the day of the election.
.... and of course GOP running pro rape candidates in two Senate elections.
GOP does not like poor people, Latins, Women or Blacks.

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—North Korean leader Kim Jong-un surprised Korea-watchers today by abruptly cancelling his nation’s controversial rocket test and launching a fragrance instead.
The dictator’s signature fragrance, called “Number Un,” could be on store shelves in time for Christmas, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
The decision to launch a fragrance rather than a rocket “shows a kind of realism that has been rare in the Kim family,” said North Korea expert Dr. Hiroshi Kyosuke, of the University of Tokyo.
“I think Kim Jong-un most likely said to himself,‘Given how badly my last rocket did, maybe I’ll just launch a fragrance,’” he said.
The official North Korean announcement offered this description of the new fragrance:“Number Un deliriously combines the sweet smells of North Korea’s native unicorns with the irresistible aroma of our Dear Leader himself. This holiday season, every kiss begins with Kim Jong-un.”

DEBIL IS INSPIRED TO CREATE AN ANALOGY FO' THE U.S. MEDICAL SYSTEM... UM.... OH, HE GOT IT!
SO, UM, IN AN IMAGINARY WORL' WAY IN THE FUTURE, A MEXICAN REPUBLICAN WITH BLACK ROOTS HAS FINALLY BEEN ELECTED PRESIDENT. HE APPOINTS THIS WHITE CHICK THAT LOOKS LIKE A YOUNG ELLE MACPHERSON HIS SECRETARY OF HOTNESS. SHE HAS ACCESS TO ALL THE HOTNESS DATA IN THE WORLD AND HAS AN UNLIMITED BUDGET TO STUDY WORLD HOTNESS, FORMERLY KNOWN AS GLOBAL WARMING.

IN THEORY, HER JOB IS TO REPRESENT ALLLLLLLL THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO ASPIRE TO EXTREME HOTNESS. THE PROBLEM IS, SHE CAIN'T SERVICE EVERYBODY SO SHE GOT TO CHOOSE WHO TO SHARE HER HOTNESS DATA WITH. IN THE END SHE REASON THAT RICH PEOPLE, WHO GOD OBVIOUSLY DECIDE DESERVE MO' HOTNESS AN' THEREFORE MO' OF HER ATTENTION, SHOULD BE THE ONLY ONES SHE INVITE UP TO THE REDECORATED LINCOLN BEDROOM FO' LESSONS IN HOTNESS.

YOU SEE? ELLE COULD BE THE BES' SECRETARY OF HOTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE - WHICH SHE CERTAINLY IS - BUT IF SHE ONLY SERVICE THE RICH THEN WHAT GOOD IS SHE? DEBIL MEAN, IT NICE TO KNOW ELLE OUT THERE BUT HE HARBOR NO ILLUSIONS ABOUT EVER USIN' HER.

Yes they are. It has already stated. 2013 may see tax revenue at an all time low. This will further the debt and possible give us a third or fourth downgrade. That's the problem with libtards. They never factor in the laws of unintended consequences.

Romney did not "support" rape candidates. He adamantly condemned both statements and completely distanced himself from them.

But you just explained why Obama won more than I did.

So what was Obama's "immigration stance"? Except all talk and no action as was specifically pointed out to the president in that Spanish television show interview.

Obama can increase tax rates all he wants, but those with the ability to do so will find a way to avoid paying.
The left always makes the mistake of assuming that their actions will not affect economic behavior, that the cows will meekly line up to be milked.
When you tax an economic activity at higher rates, such as capital gains and/or dividends, you will see less of that activity.
He's not raising rates, he's letting Bush's supposedly temporary tax cust expire. If they could have been avoided then why did Bush have to implement them?

No I can't. I sat in amazement as the guy was saying it. But then he said the government was in favor of it. So, who knows where that will lead down the road.
