I saw Mitt Romney as a kind and decent American. I thought his wife,Ann,would have made a wonderful first lady.
I'm not a Republican. I have been registered as a Democrat for many years. I do think I will change my party. I will never be voting for any Clinton again.
Looking at the voting my guess is there was so much voting by the same person over many times acroos the USA. Just don't trust them boys from Chicago.

Romney lost because he is an out of touch with reality douche bag and because the GOP has alienated it's self from minorities, the middle class, the poor and women. There were not enough old white rich dudes or morons in the US to vote him in.

Because Chicago is a foreign nation like New york and they are out to make the USA a socialist commie nation.

And now the GOP will set out to de-legitimize the election in any way they possibly can.

They just don't learn their lesson. I used to joke about them being retarded. I don't joke about it anymore because it's no longer a joke.

BIG issue will be the republicans in congress whose last act prior to the election was denying a jobs bill to Veterans...they keep up their act of saying no, they won't exist come 2014

I was hoping they might realize that Obama's re-election was a second mandate from the American people and get back to the business of running this country instead of running their mouths.

Clearly, I was mistaken in that hope. Fox News is already trying to whip them into a frenzy. They obviously don't learn from their mistakes.

I'm hoping the repubs will see all the money into their campaigns didn't pay off and tell FOX to take a flying leap, along with the koch brothers. Rove is REALLY trying to save face.

The sad thing is there are more tea party governors who will bring this nation down.

The balance of power is needed to keep things in check. I,as a Romney supporter, can say that many of us do see Obama's re-election as a second mandate from the American people. I think a lot of it is the GOP was blinded to how the country has changed. What is needed is for some of the younger members of the party to step up and speak up.
It is time for the old school (such as me) realise the good of the party and the country is to embrace the change. I can't see myself embracing too much change, but I can see myself stepping aside and not trying to hold up the progress. None of us live forever.
I want what is best for my children and grandchildren. I've had my day in the sun. I admit,I don't understand how the world is. I understand it a bit less everyday.
All I want is to do my work, read my books, play my music and play the occasional word game on face book. I want to do a bit more traveling and be there when and if my loved ones need me.
I am through trying to govern the country. Time for me to step aside.

Honestly, there are plenty of examples of how the democrats and republicans worked well together in the past, so we all know it can be done.

I read an interesting article about the Tea Party a while back and in it they talked about how compromise is key to making politics work. Most of the politicians (democrats and republicans) know this. Tea Party members, on the other hand, were mostly all new-comers to the political scene and just did not understand "the art of the deal" and how things work in Washington. I think they need to get with the program.

As for the changing face of America, yes, I agree 100%. That is what needs to be dealt with if republicans are going to remain a viable force in American politics. We are made up of a lot of things--men, women, gays, straights, Christians, Muslims, atheists, blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians, and just about every combination of the above. The republican party is going to have to be more inclusive going as the face of America continues to change.

Agreed.

I was so disappointed to see that Fox is already busy trying to de-legitimize the election and just lead their people down the same path again--a path that has failed miserably twice before.

I know there are still some "real" republicans out there. I hope they rise up and take control of their party again and run these tea-bagging nuts off.

Fine message and the high point is, "my children and grandchildren". I don't like Oboma's bold statements and actually wonder what is coming this 4 years from him and his click. Seems like I just don't trust the man. He's no FDR, Truman, JFK, Clinton. Something is just not right.

Looks more like the "War on Coal" was just a projection.
