The ONLY ethnic group where Romney lead was white men. Republicans have won the white vote in every presidential election since 1964, and that continued Tuesday with Romney beating Obama by 20 points, 59 percent to 39 percent, according to exit polls.

Blame the Republicans all you want. The Republicans are portrayed as road blocking the Democrats attempts at recovery. It is conveniently left out that the Democrats have addendums and riders added to all of their proposed bills that would cripple America's working people. What few are left.

There is a difference between *poor* and BROKE. New York,New Jersey,California and Illinois are BROKE and they went for Obama..... Hoping for a bailout,no doubt. I think they'll be waiting for a while,Obama could give a sh1t about states. He has a country's economy to ruin. Why prop up 4-5 states when you're commited to wrecking ALL 50? This way he only has 46 or so to go.....

From the exit polls, President Obama’s support from men slipped a few points from 49% four years ago, but women supported the president over Romney by 55% to 44%.
Exactly. Women vote based on things other than qualifications. They voted for Clinton because they thought he was good looking. They fell for Obama's BS and think he is charismatic. The women that fought so hard for women's right to vote are turning over in their graves.

Keep on pointing this stuff out, it's getting fun.

ANTICHRIST Obama is the biggest fraud of all.
In 2008 Lucas Smith smuggled out a notarized copy of BHO's original BC from Kenya. Obama was indeed born 100% Brit in kenya before his Indonesian adoption. The Hawaiian Birth Certificate is forged and he is using a stolen SSN. The Freemasons made this monster and they will have to destroy it or at least make an attempt.
There were some extremely prominent men there that day, including a Scandinavian King, two former presidents of the United States, an internationally prominent evangelist, two other internationally prominent clergymen, and a very high official of the federal government, the one who actually presented me with the certificate of the 33rd Degree. Some made only brief appearances; others stayed much longer. However, they didn't do much mixing or socializing with us, except for those whom they already knew. Even though these celebrities weren't extremely "brotherly," it was still quite an experience for me just to be associated with them. It was easily the largest gathering of such prominent and influential men of which I have ever been a part.
The third day there was a banquet to celebrate our becoming "Grand Inspectors General. 33rd Degree." The banquet was a little anticlimactic, at least for me, and I was anxious to get it over with so I could return home. It was good to be a 33rd at last.

How strange! Victims of Affirmative Action vote for Republicans. Hmmm, that one is hard to figure out, isn't it?

Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice

There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy.

The research finds that children with low intelligence are more likely to hold prejudiced attitudes as adults. These findings point to a vicious cycle, according to lead researcher Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario. Low-intelligence adults tend to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, the study found. Those ideologies, in turn, stress hierarchy and resistance to change, attitudes that can contribute to prejudice, Hodson wrote in an email to LiveScience.

"Prejudice is extremely complex and multifaceted, making it critical that any factors contributing to bias are uncovered and understood," he said.

In the last four years there has been only one bill which would have unfairly targeted legal gun owners ..... it was a Republican bill. It would have been a sister bill to the Patriot Act. I said 'would have' because guess what stopped it? The Democrats immediately killed the bill due to its affects on legal owners.

What caused gun sales to shoot up (excuse the pun) during both elections is that the gun companies love money. It's why they are in business. And they know they can egg idiots into buying their product (both guns and ammo) by telling you President Obama is going to take them away from you. It looks like you would have learned from the last time the gun companies did this in 2008 ..... but I guess not.

As for the NRA, their bull about President Obama taking guns is for the same reason ..... money. They (the NRA) no longer represent normal gun owners, they are a lobbying organization for the gun companies. Gun companies make large donations to the NRA.

Is President Obama going to take your guns ..... No, he isn't.

Real history of what really happens in the real world (instead of rightwing fantasies): National debt was irrelevant to the collapse of Iceland. What melted down the Iceland economy was PRIVATE BANK DEBT set off by DEREGULATION.

"The 2008–2012 Icelandic financial crisis is a major economic and political crisis in Iceland that involved the collapse of all three of the country's major commercial banks following their difficulties in refinancing their short-term debt and a run on deposits in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Relative to the size of its economy, Iceland’s banking collapse is the largest suffered by any country in economic history.[1]
In late September 2008, it was announced that the Glitnir bank would be nationalised. The following week, control of Landsbanki and Glitnir was handed over to receivers appointed by the Financial Supervisory Authority (FME). Soon after that, the same organization placed Iceland's largest bank, Kaupthing, into receivership as well. Commenting on the need for emergency measures, Prime Minister Geir Haarde said on 6 October, "There [was] a very real danger ... that the Icelandic economy, in the worst case, could be sucked with the banks into the whirlpool and the result could have been national bankruptcy."[2] He also stated that the actions taken by the government had ensured that the Icelandic state would not actually go bankrupt.[3] At the end of the second quarter 2008, Iceland's external debt was 9.553 trillion Icelandic krónur (€50 billion), more than 80% of which was held by the banking sector.[4] This value compares with Iceland's 2007 gross domestic product of 1.293 trillion krónur (€8.5 billion).[5] The assets of the three banks taken under the control of the FME totaled 14.437 trillion krónur at the end of the second quarter 2008.[6]"
Smoke and Mirrors. Keep trying to detract and distract from the facts.

The dumber the state the more likely they are a red state. On the other hand, Obama won Florida which has only 23% college graduates.
"According to a state-by-state breakdown by the Census Bureau, here are the top 15 states with the best college completion rates as of 2010. All of them have at least 43 percent of its young residents holding a college degree, but only two states have over 50 percent. D.C., which was included in the study, beat out all of the states with an impressive 68.8 percent.
Blue - Massachusetts 54.3% of the population
Red - North Dakota 50.8% of the population
Blue - Minnesota 49.8% of the population
Blue - New York 49.6% of the population 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Jersey 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Hampshire 46.0% of the population
Blue - Connecticut 45.9% of the population
Blue - Iowa 45.5% of the population
Blue - Maryland 45.5% of the population
Blue- llinois 45.3% of the population
Blue - Virginia 44.6% of the population
Blue - Vermont 44.5% of the population
Red - Nebraska 44.2% of the population
Blue - Pennsylvania 43.9% of the population"
So out of the fifteen states with the highest percentages of college graduates, twelve voted for Obama. And as for the nonsense some have proposed about liberalism being "cyclical", republicans have gotten the majority of the white vote in every presidential race since 1964.

Please show me one advertisement from a gun manufacturer that states Obama plans to take our guns away.
Obama did that himself during the second presidential debate.

Let me ask you something. How many people are employed by the NRA? Now, what happens if one day the NRA is successful in eliminating all threat to gun ownership? That's correct, all those people will be unemployed and no more money comes in. Do you really think the NRA wants to win? Or is it more likely they play the game with the politicians, both Democrat and Republican?

So all college students attend colleges within their own state? All college graduates remain in their home state?

And despite all if your hot air, half of the students graduating college today can't find a job! Thanks Obama!
