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 ...

Whiole he creates multiple sockpuppets and uses them all at once.

"Not Surprised" has kept everyone aware of the idiocy of Waxturd, holed up in Windsor, CT, with sockpuppets all over the USA.

You think it's ok for them to change the rules when they can't win under the rules that have existed for 200+ years??
What it proves is that they know they can't win elections unless they gerrymander voting districts and changing the Electoral College rules.
It won't work any better than all of Rmoney's lies did.
Then there's this:
""Top Florida Republican Opposes Electoral Vote Change
Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford (R) doesn't agree with Republican efforts around the country to change the way electoral votes are allocated, the Miami Herald reports.
Said Weatherford: "To me, that's like saying in a football game,'We should have only three quarters, because we were winning after three quarters and the beat us in the fourth. I don't think we need to change the rules of the game, I think we need to get better."
<quoted text>
You don't think the Democrats wouldn't have already done this if the shoe were on the other foot?

If these states vote to change the rules, them's the breaks.

Changing the subject does not let you off the hook, nitwit.

You lose the discussion, so you change the rules??

There was nothing said about Obama comments, your claim was that this was the worst recovery in history, but the Stock Market says you're an idiot.

So do I.

So, how do you evaluate a stock?? Have you ever bought a stock??

Not a mutual fund, but a single equity.

Maybe this is off topic but has anyone been paying attention to the DOW and other markets this week?

Holy sht and in spite of Apples problems and Boeings battery hiccups the markets continue to grow well past a five year high and towards new ground. The investors apparently like the stability that the inauguration presented.

There ya go eh?

I pay attention to everything, that's why I'm harder to fool. You, on the other hand, are happy to live in your blissfully ignorant fantasy land ignoring red flags that are waved in your face. You deserve to be in bed with waxturd and his phony judge-its.
It one thing to pay attention to everything, quite another to discern what's important. The judgeits aren't important.

As the Republican National Committee concludes its three-day meeting in Charlotte, N.C., Republicans are looking to improve their standing in time for the next presidential election. They want to do a better job reaching out to Latinos, they want to soften their tone when it comes to social issues, and they want to narrow their technological and get-out-the-vote operation gap with Democrats.
Here's the big news...
Some Republicans are looking to change the Electoral College system in battleground states that Democrats have won in the last two cycles. As the Washington Post reports, Republicans in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia -- all controlled at the state level by the GOP -- have proposed awarding their Electoral College votes by congressional district instead of the winner-take-all approach used by every state except for two (Maine and Nebraska).“No state is moving quicker than Virginia, where state senators are likely to vote on the plan as soon as next week,” the Post says.
That would give the GOP a HUGE advantage: The Republicans advocating these changes say they would give smaller communities more of a voice in presidential battleground states. But there’s a bigger story here: The moves would give the GOP a significant advantage due to the fact that redistricting has concentrated the Democratic vote to just a handful of congressional districts in these states. Take Virginia, for example: Obama won the state in 2012 by four percentage points and by about 150,000 votes -- and he took all of the state’s 13 electoral votes. But under the proposed changes, Mitt Romney would have won nine of the state’s electoral votes to Obama’s four. Put another way, if every electoral vote in the country was awarded by congressional district, Romney would have defeated Obama, 276 to 262 in electoral votes according to Emory University’s Alan Abramowitz. And if only the states of Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin were changed to this system, Obama would have BARELY won, 271-267, Abramowitz adds.

This should raise a few eyebrows.
It does, it's disgusting. Republicans should make their new slogan: Lie, Cheat, Steal, whatever it take to deny the majority of the voters.

Puff the Magic Dragon was a sad song about childhood lost.

Sheesh.

they never did, not after Reagan, not after BushI, not after BushII.

Funny how you project all the sinister acts of Republiclowns onto the Dems.

Your level of discussion is that of a 5th grader.

"Well, they would do it, too!! NYAA NYAA NYAA!!"

Raises my eyebrows that they would try such an obvious cheat. Based on the last election they're saying Romney would have won the electoral vote even though Obama won the popular vote by 10 million. That'd be a friggin' travesty and probably the end of the electoral college entirely.
