Interesting survey in today papers in Israel for the American voters. Could not believe it but 85% Romney 15% for the asshole.
I wish the American Jews would vote the same.
Go Romney Go!!!!!!
Marilyn Chambers for VP in charge of the bedrooms.
Whoa, whoa, whoa...last time I checked, Beirut is on Earth.

C'mere...I'm going to let you in on a little secret. No, closer, we really have to keep this on the down-low. The election tomorrow? The one where we all go to the polls and cast our "one man, one vote"? It's immaterial. That's right, you heard me, it don't mean a thing. The popular vote has been overridden in the past and with a race like this, it will probably be close enough to happen again.

The Electoral College sucks. Write in Marilyn Chambers/Linda Lovelace tomorrow! It's the only way to make sure that the screwin' we're getting matches the screwin' we're givin'.

Don't get me wrong, I like Mormons...even the bad ones are the nicest people you'll ever meet. All I'm saying is that they're running neck 'n neck and when you have a race that close, people run out of positives to count and start inventorying the negatives. A lot of evangelicals and Roman Catholics may not feel the same way you do about the lesser evil.

Shame on the blind and dumb American public. Here is something to wonder about, its your future with your (hahahah hahah) leader.

“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.”— Marcus Tullius Cicero.

Yep, here is your new closet Muzlim Ceaser.

..I blame, this mutant version of the republican party, they still have the House, and have already shown that they will choose party over country, at every chance. Paul Ryan actually deserved jail, not VP.....the system, remains the same...can they govern?

YAY! America won!

We held an election where nobody died and the sun rose the following morning on no worse a prospect than we had before. There may be ten places on the planet where that is possible in this day and age and we taught most of them how to do it.

So what if our system is paralyzed by partisan gridlock? We're Americans and that's how we do.

I've watched almost four years, of House republicans block every democratic jobs bill and refuse bi-partisan support for bills, that might have sped up our economic recovery.....they took our economy hostage, during the debt limit negotiations, long enough for, our Treasury, to get it's credit rating dropped....They have governed for party over country, while they go on Fox and scream...When's Obama gonna do something about our economy?.....You would have to be blind, not to observe, their treachery....

I feel you but I have one question: Where were you during the previous 35 years?

This has been going on far longer than the length of the President's first term. I also feel like it is worth mentioning that little gets done when either party controls Congress and the White House simultaneously. Seriously, our system leaves very little time for governance during lulls in the election cycle.

I hope what you meant to do was voice your frustration at how both sides have done everything BUT govern in the recent past. I also can't shake the feeling of dread I get over the issue of why these people are spending millions (billions) of dollars to win jobs that pay less money than a good timeshare salesman makes.

I'm distrustful of both parties, but the House republicans have stepped over the line, for me....i would actually, love to see 4-5 equal strength parties and a rework of the electorate system.....

I'm not sure diluting the process across more parties is the solution. If we're gonna do it, maybe we should retool to a no-party system. Am I being unrealistic when I pine for a government of, by and for the people? It seems like career politicians have turned the game around to one of working full-time to keep their jobs.

No doubt our system sucks.(until you compare it to every other one on earth)
