LOL Right on, it's like the republicunts have nothing better to do than continuously show hatred towards the presdient, instead of trying to work for the good of the PEOPLE of this country, not themselves and their failed horseshyt stupidity. More and more i keep saying to the republicans, "is that all you've got? come on" Idiots like Donald Trump need to get dropped off in a men's prison for a night in the sex offender bullpen so they can be silenced permanently, the tea party morons need to just steep in hot water and just get diluted, and the other fools who continuously do everything they can to destroy the president need to get a new gig. They are going to be left behind, while everyone else tries to work with the President of the United States to move foward and help this country get back to greatness.

PaintChips isn't allowed to leave the grounds.

And usually, he doesn't have access to the lobby computer.

He (and his aliases) are fun to wind up, though.

He should prolly wear a sign then...

So we can pick him out.

He'll be the one holding the Romney/Ryan 2012 poster.

Either way, our world is changing: more taxes, more government control of our economy, less economic freedom, more taxes, and less choice in medical and other areas of our lives. Our economy starts looking more like Europe ( Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy). We will no longer have the financial strength to afford things like a strong military, a space program and good medical care and I could go on and on. You can move somewhere else, but most of the world is in the same or worse condition. Regardless of what happens, half of the population who voted for the status quo are going to get what they deserve. Unfortunately, the rest of us may have to suffer because of their ignorance!

dictatorship and or fascism, this is a farce. Considering the Republican nominated a candidate for President who couldn't and never supported Women's equal pay in a society build on Equal Protections and Equal Access to the Constitutional Protections and guaranteed rights .

Any candidate who can't support Equal Pay for a Woman doing the same job as a Man isn't qualified to defend the United State Constitution as President of the United States.

Fascism and Dictatorship you say?

You people are loss, without justice there is no America!

FauxNews hyped up their own viewers with Faux Polls.

Karl Rove still thinks Ohio might go his way. He has to first reach the one guy in Toledo to find out how his vote went....so don't give up yet repubs.

Oh wait. Obama won in a LANDSLIDE

I think the early votes were the key to Obama’s victory. Think about it……. A technician comes in on the 3rd, 12th or 16th day of early voting to calibrate the machines or to test them. The 76 year old woman assigned to be there after hours to monitor him has all the faith in the world that he is only doing his job. He smiles as she talks about her grandkids and how the crowds have been large this election as he slides a thumb drive into each machine. The drive contains a temporary program that is specific to each type of voting machine and voting district. The program flips only the early votes 5. 10. or 15% to Obama. The percentage would depend on that districts 2010 election outcome and the estimated Republican turnout for 2012. Since no one, up to that time, has counted the votes no one would know and if this were a program running off the thumb drive it would not show on any machine. (Not that anyone is looking) All you need is access to one of each of the official voting machines and a couple of liberal kids from MIT to find a way to set this up. (Dead by now I’m sure). The other recently dead involved are the tech savvy training instructors of the recently hired voting machine techs that did not know anything above what they were told to do at each location. This could have been implemented by a very few. If this is impossible then nothing is possible.

An incumbent under 50% means he's Not a good president. Obama is obviously 1 of the WORST We've ever seen.

Americans need to Reject his Divisive brand of politics and allow Mitt Romney to bring us back together.

Too bad so many Republicans (including all
the GOP morons on this forum) were living
inside the hermetically sealed Fox News Bubble
where reality never seeps in.

The morning of November 7th might not have
been such a shock to them.

Obama!!!! What???? You gotta be kidding!!!!
Gimme some air!!!!!

Guffaw!!
