Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Romney was not a drag on the Republican party. The Republican party was a drag on him.

Postelection panic among conservatives about the Latino vote has reached the point of absurdity — and mostly reveals the naïveté of detached political grandees who know little about the ideology and motivations of those they are now supposed to adroitly woo.

Ann Romney is distraught because she fears Mitt is having an affair, so she went to a gun shop and bought her a handgun. The next day she comes home to find Mitt in bed with Sarah Palin, She grabs the gun and holds it to her her head. Mitt jumps out of bed, begging and pleading with her not to shoot herself. Hysterically Ann responds to Mitt "Shut up you;re next.
Time for the seasonal quip (change names) as needed...

Mitt finds written,in urine, in the fresh snow outside his mansion "Mitt is a loser".

Outraged Mitt has his security guards take a sample to the lab for forensic analysis only to report both good and bad news.

The urine is Baracks but it is Ann's handwriting.

<quoted text>You stupid Repubs NEVER consider the cost of 30 million Americans without health insurance to the rest of America.
When serious health care reform's time finally arrived and both parties knew it had to be addressed once and for all, the long-awaited golden opportunity was blown by partisan politics and radical solutions.

Lowering the cost of health care is what you liberals never want to address. That is and always has been the real problem.

So instead of lowering costs, our taxes are now going to go up, businesses are going to pass on the added expenses to their customers, health care is going to go down the toilet and what was once a big mess and could have been reformed without any cost and with do-able solutions that would have lowered costs, we're pretty much screwed and lawyers are licking their litigation chops as we speak.

The Republican shortfall with the working class in 2012 was due not simply to the nominee’s personal background but to wider issues with Republican policies. In the wake of a decade of lost economic ground and the near-meltdown of 2008, many non-affluent voters seem to have a deep distrust of the ability of Republican policies to work for them. Romney’s poor showing among this demographic underlines the fact that Republicans have not yet found an antidote to this distrust. Further tax cuts will not counter it, nor will promises to end Obamacare. As Ross Douthat suggested the other day, the concerns of average Americans are not the same today as they were in 1979, so Republican policies will have to change with them. By the end of the campaign, Governor Romney was beginning to tout a more forward-looking economic message, one that emphasized industrial renewal, energy development, and middle-class restoration. It was this message that made the election as close as it became on November 6.

The country voted against the GOP because for several reasons.

However if the election had been held right before Hurricane Sandy, the outcome might have been very different.
Obama makes a mistake if he thinks he won because of his policies. He won because Romney dropped the ball, because Romney is a Mormon and because his smear campaign worked. He also won because of a well-organized and methodical plan to get his base to the voting booths.
The country is still very much divided...more so now...and Obama will wish he hadn't won a second term if he succeeds in implementing his policies and continue to ignore and dismiss half of the country again another four years.
Your 'rule' explained ;-)

I don't need to answer it. No point. It's the 'law of the land'. With no recourse for republicans other than to bitch about that that they can't change.
Maybe you should 'educate'(for the 50th time?) with something more topical? Like the steps needed to be taken so the GOP can win another national election. It's all the rage on the right wing sites. Go educate yourself.
So you're saying that just because it's a strictly "partisan" law of the land, the rising costs with more government paper pushers and higher taxes with a rise in unemployment because of businesses not hiring and firing since 50 employees is now the magic number isn't important?

How odd.

Romney Gets the Last Gaffe

Conservatives have constructed a myth that says certain groups—blacks, Hispanics, women, young people—vote Democratic because they’re stupid, because they’re lazy, and because they can be purchased with trinkets and baubles. It’d be one thing if they kept that myth a secret, but instead they shout it from the rooftops. Then, when it’s over, they wonder why those people voted Democratic again.

Romney was never the worst offender on this score; he never delighted in it, as people like Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh do. But he certainly participated. Indeed, part of his problem throughout this campaign, and the one before it, is that he’s never been good at disguising his lack of respect for the American electorate. His changing positions, his evasions about them, his misrepresentations—they all, ultimately, came off as a challenge: I think you’re too stupid not to fall for this. And there are very few people who appreciate being told they’re dumb, or the person who said it.

There are, of course, other, larger problems for the Republican Party to grapple with over the next few years. But they’ll have trouble solving many of them if they can’t get past this and realize that Democrats don’t have to bribe voters—not when their opponents are so interested in insulting them.

b) A constitutional amendment declaring that corporations are not people and do not have the constitutional rights of citizens. This amendment should also state that the interests of the general public and society must always come before the interests of corporations.

c) A constitutional amendment that will act as a "second bill of rights" as proposed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt: that every American has a human right to employment, to health care, to a free and full education, to breathe clean air, drink clean water and eat safe food, and to be cared for with dignity and respect in their old age.

How odd that the Heritage BS you posted is mostly conjecture.

So this is for all of you nutjobs...take your leap of faith 'facts' and stick them where the sun don't shine. You'd think after getting spanked in the last 2 elections by some 'black guy' you would have figured out that the right wing misinformation made no impression beyond the 3% who watch FOX.

As to the Israeli/Hamas build up of tensions and rocket fire and now Israeli ground troops:

"U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said in an interview with Voice of America: "I understand the reasons Israel is doing what they're doing. They've been the target of missiles coming in from Gaza..."

He added, "Our hope is that in striking back that they can minimize the civilian deaths that are likely to occur."

Hamas, which evolved from an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, has ruled Gaza since winning elections in 2007.

We can only speculate when and how this will end.

Strictly partisan, like the Bush tax cuts, are OK as long as Carol likes them.

The only companies that would be affected by this 50 employee limit are those not offering health insurance.

These companies have their employees fend for themselves in your favored system where as individuals they will not be able to afford it.

Carol, you know well, that if you had to buy health insurance as a family it would cost you over $2,000 a month with your health situation. And you complain about a law that would tremendously reduce that if you were thrown into that situation.

Republicans had plenty of opportunities between their blocking of Hillary-care to the enactment of Obamacare.

So please, cut the crap.

Republicans had no interest in resolving healthcare issues.

But you idiots run screaming through the streets blaming Democrats yet if Republicans had addressed these things when they held the White House, then healthcare would be reformed in the Republican way & be the law of the land.

So instead of blaming Democrats, you sorry-assed, whining, lying right wingers need to blame your own party.

We got Obamacare because you morons did not enact healthcare when you held Congress & the White House.
