Whoa whoa wait... You are telling me that you are all complaining about Obama "only" getting 51%(really closer to 52%) of the popular vote while ignoring the electoral college but have the galls to link to a site that shows (according to your logic) the so called "landslide" victory of Reagan at 50.7%.

For god's sake how about you try to keep it some consistency here, which is more important, the popular vote or the electoral college's vote? because clearly Obama won both easily.

Yes, but the Governor decides on executions, Bush was that decider.
Signs death warrants__I don't think the governor can pardon.

Ann Richards wouldn't sign a death warrant so Bush had 8 years worth of them stacked up on his desk on day one. He didn't really have a choice being a Republican and all__but he made a few unnecessary comments along the way.

Let Carol and the other yayhoo's have their memories to diddle__Bush is essentially trapped in Texas, unwelcome even in (R) circles and doesn't dare travel to Europe. He flew to the Caymans for a speech and he'll trek to D.C. and Maine when Sr passes. That's a pretty lonely existence for an ex POTUS imo.

MSNBC - Six months after Hurricane Sandy, for many residents whose homes were badly damaged, recovery is moving at a slow pace – or not at all.

This president can't move a little faster on anything besides Obamacare?

He's sending F-16s to Egypt while American citizens are still displaced?

Can someone on the left please explain this to me?

President Obama has a minority outreach tip for the GOP. They can start by reaching out to him. "I know Republicans are still sorting out what happened in 2012, but one thing they all agree on is they need to do a better job reaching out to minorities. And look, call me self-centered, but I can think of one minority they could start with. Hello? Think of me as a trial run, you know? See how it goes."

Republican filibustered it in the Senate you moron. Otherwise the Senate would have ended them.

Darn, those pesky facts.

The actual bill never came to a vote. The vote to end debate failed to get 60 votes.

Well, it's not as if anyone would get up and say that. They are all politicians after all. Bush seemed uncomfortable, like he just wanted to get out of there. Perhaps it has taken it's toll on him after all.

psst, time to end this thread, spoiler, Obama won fair and square by a landslide both times.
Not a landslide when it's only 3 million more votes in a population of over 300 million.

He mostly won the liberal states in the Northwest, the liberal states in the Midwest and the liberal states along the West Coast which happen to have the largest populations.

Florida and a few other states were a fluke but only means the mindset of too many Americans is even more worrisome.

Romney, unfortunately, proved to be the wrong candidate. He let too many golden opportunities slip by.

Obama's "get out the vote campaign" was also three years in the making.

Nevertheless, no landslide. That's much too big of a stretch.

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor expressed doubt Friday about the decision to take the 2000 Bush v. Gore case that resulted in the election of President George W. Bush.

"It took the case and decided it at a time when it was still a big election issue," O'Connor told the Chicago Tribune editorial board in an interview. "Maybe the court should have said,'We're not going to take it, goodbye.'"

"Obviously the court did reach a decision and thought it had to reach a decision," she said. "It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn't done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day."
