That held will voters going to the polls.... yesterday. And rush dickless is baffled as to how to overcome it. The lies sure didn't work for him, so we'll have to wait for his next blame game to appear. The old fart has become so predictable.
Bush may not have CAUSED the recession, but we all know that Obama INHERITED it. So the whine about 'blame Bush, blame Bush!' just didn't work. Obama wasn't blaming Bush, just circumstances.

Like their asinine "apology tour" lie, which they got from Karl Rove, it was just another futile GOP talking-point. Americans got sick of those, it seemed.

Tough titties. Get over it. You were miserably wrong all along, just like we were telling you. You are a hateful fool. Hopefully, for your sake, something profound will happen in your life to show you what a POS you are and convince you to take an honest look at yourself. You are facing a life as miserable as you are if you don't change, and it is no more than you deserve. You and your ilk did nothing but hurt your candidate with the behavior you exhibited. No decent, thinking person would want to have anything to do with anyone people like you would approve of.

Ten-to-one they decide Romney was too 'liberal' and go further to the Right next time. Go for it, guys, it worked so well for you before! LOL
The more Republicans become bogged down in their antiquated politics of fear and hatred, the better for the country. It assures us all that they will never retake the White House. I agree with you. The Republicans will try to double down on loser policies at least one more time before someone in their party has the common sense to figure out the country has changed. I'm counting on them all going down with the ship. In any event, decades of relying on the fear and stupidity of the masses won't be a reliable method for getting Republicans elected at the national level anymore. We'll see if they will adapt or die.

A GOP brutha? I DON'T think so. Herman Cain left long ago and he won't be back. Brown skin? I don't think Bobby Jindal will be taken seriously.

Americans need to Reject his Divisive brand of politics and allow Mitt Romney to bring us back together.
Wisdom, huh? Hmmmm....

Obama won by 3 million votes and got 52%.

Better scamper back into the Fox News bubble.

Thanks to both of you for being so stalwart through all of this. I have to admit there were a few times there, for me, when the "doom and gloom" got pretty convincing and yet y'all, among others, held steady through it in spite of what was happening.
