Thank all the Gods the election in now over.

Seaside you are welcome back - we can still be friends!

Two interesting results:

1. Exit polls showed the Obama got statistically the same proportion of Jews (around 70-75%) as 2004.

2. In CT - Linda McMahon, of World Wrestling Federation Fame, lost her senate bid despite spending 50 Million of her OWN money (and also spending 50 Million of her own money a few years ago as well in same bid). Just goes to show that CT we are more sophisticated than to let someone buy a seat.

During a campaign event in New Hampshire, Barack Obama
told an audience of his supporters,“you know I tell the
truth.”
Here are ten flagrant examples where Obama has not told the
truth and in fact has lied to cover up his own administration’s
failings, or as a deliberate act of deception.
1) As part of his 2008 campaign pledge, Obama promised to
close down Guantanamo Bay. The Obama administration not
only failed to close the infamous prison camp, they expanded
its use.
2) Last year (after campaigning to protect Habeas Corpus
before he was elected), Obama promised not to sign the
National Defense Authorization Act, with its provisions for
the indefinite detention of American citizens, yet put his
signature on the bill in the dead of night on New Year’s Eve.
Indeed, it was the Obama administration itself which argued
for the removal of language that would have protected
Americans from the provisions and then had them re-
instituted after a court had struck them down.
3) Obama has lied time and time again about Operation Fast
and Furious, the program which saw guns delivered directly
into the hands of Mexican drug lords. Obama told a national
television station that the program had begun under
Bush when in fact it began under Obama’s watch in October
4) Emails sent shortly after the incident as well as a CBS 60
Minutes interview from September 12 prove that the White
House knew the assault on the US Consulate in Benghazi was
a pre-meditated terrorist attack yet the administration spent
over a week claiming the incident was a protest against a You
Tube video.
5) As part of his campaign pitch, Obama promised to “not use
signing statements as a way of doing an end run around
Congress.” Obama has issued no less than 19 signing
statements since he took office.

6) In 2010, Obama said “we’ve excluded lobbyists from policy-
making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions.” Not
only have dozens of lobbyists had regular access to the White
House, but Obama has hired over a dozen lobbyists , breaking
a campaign promise to ensure that lobbyists “won’t find a job
in my White House.”
7) As part of his efforts to bypass congressional authorization
for the war on Libya, Obama gave a speech in which he
promised there would be “no boots on the ground” in Libya.
This promise was broken when four uniformed military
personnel were sent into Libya, in addition to widespread
reports that US Special Forces had arrived in Libya months
before the overthrow of Gaddafi.
8) Under Obamacare, Obama claimed that there would be no
state-funded abortions. It later emerged that federally funded
abortions would be expanded under Obamacare.
9) In 2008, Obama promised “no more illegal wiretapping of
American citizens.” Just months after he took office, Obama
expanded Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program. The
invasiveness of illegal wiretapping is worse under
Obama than it was under Bush.
10) Before the passage of Obamacare, Obama claimed that the
bill was “absolutely not a tax increase” on all Americans.
When the Supreme Court rubber-stamped Obamacare, they
were only able to do so by classifying the new mandate as a
tax, otherwise it would have been unconstitutional.
Tell the truth? Obama doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

The most interesting aspect of the election, IMO, is the work of Nate Silver.

There have been a few articles out already on whether he is a "genius" or not, and they are entertaining to read because most of them still dont understand what he did - which was to agregate the multiple polls in each state, and then use a gambling/sports computer model to add confidence statistics that projected the accuracy/error of the aggregated data.

SO while many of the pundits were predicting mythical surges based on intuitions, he was describing the accuracy of all the polling data. By saying Obama had a 90% chance of winning, he was saying he had 90% confidence that the polls putting Obama ahead were accurate.

Since: Dec 10

Yes, that was a graceful article.

It must be frustrating to both Repubs and Democrats alike- to put so much effort and time into Florida, and at the end of the day the state isnt even electorally relevant any more.

I watched the Romney speech. He looked noticably relieved that it was all over.

America will be finished financially by the end of his term and blaming the previous administration won't work.

Do you know how many times the American banking system has crashed and taken half the world with it? Too many times. And do you know what was done each time to esnure it doesn't happen again....... not a damn thing.

The only difference is that America is no longer the only team to back. With emerging markets and the China boom in full swing there are other markets to tap. The USA can't rely on its size and and prominence anymore. It needs to move with the times

The collapse will be cataclysmic, the US will be devastated, the starving will be much greater than the greatest depression, the sickness will increase and the care for seniors will be a distant memory.
The rioting and the looting by the lower class will increase after food rationing, biometric snap program cards will be introduced.
The only foods available will be gmo.

That must me be the $100 million figure I heard - both added together.

Her is supposedly worth around a billion, so they still have even more $ than Romney.

I am now officially a Nate fan - two elections in a row is no fluke:

rabbee: can america survive, four more years as a sinfull nation? with G-D getting angrier, every moment at us. with two or more anti-D candidates, of little or less than no consequence.

so i do not expect any different ending, here in TheTorah. than all the other times, that it ended exactly the same way. because of all the same mental errors as before.
