Locally - One of the biggest surprises...9th district results.

Karen Ramsburg got 39% against Shuster's 64%

Impressive such neophyte could score so well against a well entrenched Republican.

I think thats better than DelGrosso did...

Kind of says...you could run ham sandwich on against Shuster and they would get 39%.

If the President does what he says he is going to do in his speech last night and works across party lines, he may be able to get something accomplished in the next 4 years. If the House and Senate can work across party lines and compromise with each other, they may be able to get something accomplished in the next 4 years.
We the people need to put our political differences aside and work with each other, not put each other down. The fate of our country depends upon we the people working together to make our futures brighter, not just for us, but for our children and grandchildren. Why there has got to be such political divide is beyond me. We should all be in it for the betterment of our society. That means putting aside our differences and doing what is best for the country, not the party. Hopefully we can come together in 2016 and vote the next President in because of his commitment to the country and the values he holds, not because of the D or R next to his name.

Mitch McConnell already said he's not willing to work with Obama...McConnell stiff arms Obama, Senate Dems:

Published: Nov. 7, 2012 at 4:09 AM
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI)-- Democrats held on to their thin majority in the U.S. Senate Tuesday, but Minority Leader Mitch McConnell indicated he wasn't ready to roll over.

While McConnell congratulated President Obama on his re-election, the Kentucky Republican was in no mood to concede any political ground, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal reported.

"The American people did two things: They gave President Obama a second chance to fix the problems that even he admits he failed to solve during his first four years in office, and they preserved Republican control of the House of Representatives," McConnell said in a statement.

"The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president's first term, they have simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do together with a Congress that restored balance to Washington after two years of one-party control.

"Now it's time for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely divided Senate, step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment, and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office.

I agree completely. Obama has repeatedly demonstrated that he is willing to compromise and reach across the aisle to get things done. Perhaps you should contact your Republican legislators and urge them to do the same thing.

PERSONS 25 YEARS OLD AND OVER WITH A BACHELOR'S DEGREE OR MORE
1. Massachusetts, 61% for Obama
2. Maryland, 61% for Obama
3. Colorado, 51% for Obama
4. Connecticut, 58% for Obama
5. New Jersey, 58% for Obama
6. Virginia, 51% for Obama
7. Vermont, 67% for Obama
8. New Hampshire, 52% for Obama
9. New York, 63% for Obama
10. Washington, 55% for Obama

Wow, look all those illiterate college graduates voting for Obama. All of the above states have 30% or more of their population with a bachelors degree.

Perhaps we should take a look at the states with the least number of college graduates?

41. Oklahoma, 67% for Romney
42. Tennessee, 59% for Romney
43. Indiana, 54% for Romney (you can have it back)
44. Alabama, 61% for Romney
45. Nevada, 52% for Obama
46. Louisiana, 59% for Romney
47. Kentucky, 61% for Romney
The following states have less than 20% of persons over 25 with a college degree:
48. Mississippi, 55% for Romney
49. Arkansas, 61% for Romney
50. West Virginia, 62% for Romney

Justify the election all you want - this repeated implication that Obama won because only dumb people voted for him is not supported by the facts, and it is quite the opposite.

Additional studies show a similar trend as the one above in rates such as literacy and income.

So my question to you: if Obama won because only dumb people vote for him, then why are all the "smart" states blue, and all the "dumb" states red?

Obama's Jobs Bill Fails to Advance in Senate Despite White House Push

President Obama's $447 billion jobs bill failed to clear a procedural hurdle in the

Democratic-controlled Senate

.
.
.

Tuesday night despite a White House push that accelerated in the 11th hour.

.
.

The bill received 50 votes falling short of the necessary 60 to end debate.

.
.

Sens. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Jon Tester of Montana were the only Democrats to vote against the bill.

Both of them are facing tough re-election campaigns next year.

Obama declared earlier Tuesday that the U.S. Senate faced a “moment of truth” when it voted on the bill, calling it "gut check time."

.

He later issued a statement accusing Republicans of obstruction.

So let me get this straight - TaxNoMore provides info taken from sources he finds with links and supporting arguments - and you say "we are going to tax everything in sight."

Doesn't take a rocket scientist to smell the blowhard bullshit there.

It doesn't say how many people "voted illegally," when technically, you can vote provisionally without being registered. Not sure if this is even an issue at all.

HILARIOUS! He's lost his mind

Some people simply aren't educable? LOL!

As I have repeatedly said - the GOP is destined to be a permanent minority party in the US if they can't stop alienating Hispanics, African Americans, women, the LGBT community, and every other minority group.

----------

First Thoughts: Obama's demographic edge

*** Obama's demographic edge:

Yes, the auto bailout mattered in Ohio. Sure, Hurricane Sandy helped the president. And, yes, the economy was the No. 1 issue. But make no mistake: What happened last night was a demographic time bomb that had been ticking and that blew up in GOP faces.

As the Obama campaign had assumed more than a year ago, the white portion of the electorate dropped to 72%, and the president won just 39% of that vote.

But he carried a whopping 93% of black voters (representing 13% of the electorate), 71% of Latinos (representing 10%), and also 73% of Asians (3%).

What’s more, despite all the predictions that youth turnout would be down, voters 18-29 made up 19% of last night’s voting population -- up from 18% four years ago -- and President Obama took 60% from that group.

The trend also played out in the key battleground states: The president won about 70% of the Latino vote in Colorado and Nevada, and he won 60% of it in Florida (a high number given the state’s large GOP-leaning Cuban-American population).

On Monday, we wrote that demography could determine destiny. And that’s exactly what happened. While the campaign’s turnout operation deserves all the credit for getting these voters to the polls, the most significant event of this presidential contest might very well have been the 2010 census.

Honestly, I don't typically read cut-and-paste posts, especially long ones. But at least it's SOMETHING rather than a baseless remark. Most of the sources pouring in here are biased in one way or another, but you can't criticize that and then just make something up, especially something as ridiculous as "we are going to tax everything in sight."

I'm just pointing out a little hypocracy, that's all.

What I'm waiting is for someone on the right to recognize that they didn't lose the last two elections because the electorate are dumb, jobless, hippies on welfare. They lost because their message is bad - America really is changing. We don't hate the government, gays, illegals and abortions anymore. That worked in the 2000's when the economy was good and everyone owned a home. Now we're living in an age of reality, and we don't want to limit the rights of people - we want to EXPAND them.

That used to be a component of the Republican platform - civil liberties. Geez, now the ACLU is condemned as a left-wing terrorist organization. That Tea Party business is over - if the republicans could just make an effort to appeal to more than wealthy white men and rural evangelicals, they would win easily.

Economic data show more growth under Democrats
Mitt Romney routinely criticizes President Obama’s record as a steward of the economy, because the recovery since the financial crisis has been slow.

If he is elected, Romney says, he would boost economic growth to 4 percent, double the current level — a rate that would outdo every Republican administration going back to 1953.

Source: Standard & Poor’s; figures through Sept. 4; Ned Davis Research; Graphic: Geroge Patisteas/Globe Staff

But despite the view held by many that the GOP is the party of economic prosperity and soaring stock markets, the opposite has historically been true. Over the past six decades, Republican administrations have produced median economic growth of 2.6 percent. Democratic administrations, meanwhile, have produced a median growth rate of 4.2 percent.
