Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Watched the whole thing. No nervous breakdown. Rove was being cautious after what happened with Bush before all the Ohio votes were counted.
He was fine and dandy when Obama won regardless.
The New York Times’ John Cassidy was convinced the hurricane secured the win for Obama. He wrote:
“After being behind in the national polls for most of October,[Obama] has now re-established a narrow lead. While there are a number of possible explanations for this turnaround, the most convincing is the simplest: his handling of Sandy has raised his standing, and his poll ratings.”
Reflecting a national trend of the numbers going in Obama’s favor since the hurricane, Obama’s lead on the east coast jumped from 9 to 21 points.
A Pew poll taken before the hurricane showed Romney and Obama neck-and-neck at 47% but the same polling firm had Obama ahead of Romney 48%-45% post-Sandy.
You lose. I win.
So I guess after both candidates and Superpacs collectively spent a couple billion dollars on attack adds, the Hurricane named Sandy is what gave President Obama an edge? I guess that act of God proved President Obama had the ability to act decisively.

Those that watch polls instead of what the candidates were actually doing must have been very surprised on November 6th. The GOP leaders must have learned something or just trying to do a better job at lying to the public. Suddenly, the Hispanic Community isn't a big of a problem as first thought. Higher Revenue isn't the end of the world and Grover Norquist is being called out as a complete DOLT.

Boston's Suffolk University: More than a quarter of the nation says Fox is tops when it comes to who they trust the most and O'Reilly is the most believable.
The O'Reilly Factor is also the most watched cable news television program on American television.
I win. You lose.
And your point? Oh must be people that don't understand what's going in will believe anything.

Dave, you are just too dense to understand, so why bother trying to explain.
Guys like you who own no stock, receive no dividends, and realize no capital gains are just bystanders who are not even participants in the economy.
So, just collect your government pension and have a nice life.
I understand just fine. You & Flack, on the other hand, don't have a clue.

You two act like no one ever owned stock prior to the Bush tax cuts.

Remember the CNN Effect? Back when the first cable news network had the field to itself, scholars used to argue about its impact on foreign policy. Some said that CNN's 24/7 coverage forced the U.S. government to act too quickly in response to graphic TV images and public pressure. How high-minded that seems in a cable news world that's now under the influence of the Fox News Effect.

Fox News Channel's impact on TV news has been so pervasive and profound that it's hard to believe the network is only 10 years old. FNC's flashy graphics, frenetic pace and opinionated hosts have spawned imitators across the spectrum. Compare CNN's Lou Dobbs today — with his on-camera rants about immigration and outsourcing — to the staid Dobbs who anchored the old "Moneyline," and it's obvious he's been "Foxified." Check out MSNBC's multilayered graphics, complete with scrolling text and whooshing sound effects, and the Fox imprint is clear.

None of that seemed likely when FNC launched. CNN was well established, and two-month-old MSNBC was seen as the comer, with its corporate backing and established news pedigree. CNN's Ted Turner boasted that he'd squash Fox News "like a bug." Even the head of Fox News admits it started way behind. "We had no newsgathering operation..no studios, no equipment, no employees, no stars, no talent and no confidence from anybody," Roger Ailes is quoted as saying in Scott Collins' book, "Crazy Like a Fox."

But the new channel did have two things the other guys lacked: a target audience and a visionary leader. Ailes, a former political consultant for Republican candidates, knew exactly what he wanted Fox to be, and it definitely wasn't a clone of the other two. While planning the new channel, he claims to have watched CNN for a solid week and found it excruciatingly boring.

Homer can play the word game all he chooses, but the reality is that higher tax rates will hurt the economy.
Why would anyone harvest a profit in a stock when the government, federal and state, will take almost 50% of the profit? Better to wait for a more rational tax system.
Let the tax cuts for the rich expire, besides it'll be fun to watch you squeal.

Actually, if all these corporations prepay two years worth of dividends, it would be a stimulus to the economy.
You assume people are going to spend it. Most likely it will go into a savings account or used to buy non-dividend stocks.

Nah, according to you only the filthy rich own stock or collect dividends, and they will just put the money in their pockets rather than give you a break.

Dear Akin and Mourdock;

Please inform Mr. Cucinelli on how and why you lost your erections, oh, sorry, meant elections:

Sen. Cuccinelli, however, was outraged that his alma mater — a public state university — would host an event he believed “really just designed to push sex and sexual libertine behavior as far, fast and furiously as possibly.” Among Cuccinelli’s objections to the event:

•Upset about an (ultimately scrapped) plan to raffle off sex toys at the fair, he said the event would “push every form of sexual promiscuity there is out there.”
•Upset that some of the advertising for the event was paid for out of student activity fees, he said,“”This is a how-to fun fair for sex. This isn’t education. This is pushing sex. It’s encouraging it… It doesn’t swell me with pride to see my alma mater putting on a soft porn show.”
•Upset that “aphrodisiacs” including Hershey’s Kisses, cucumber slices, strawberry Jello-O, and oyster crackers were given out at the event, Cuccinelli, Black, and three other Republican legislators wrote to the GMU’s president,“We appropriated $33.1 million in FY 2005 to treat STDs and AIDS. We are concerned that the frivolous manner in which human sexuality is being treated here with GMU approval is counter productive to the best interests of Virginia citizens.”
