Toomy has no power, it's all Casey and Obama now. Please let these wise men do their jobs. We all know that they know best. The electorate has spoken.

Toomey's problem is that he has no brain. And the American people have indeed spoken, and it is more and more about the irrelevancy of the GOP to the contemporary American experience.

Why is there affirmative action and special treatment for blacks? barack's black americka has the power now. Stock market down 420 points in two days since the election is proof that barack's plan for americka's third world status is working.

The country knows best. Please allow our reappointed leaders to do their thing. The country wanted Obama, they got Obama. Mine is not to question why,mine is to obey.

I went to bed a citizen and woke up a subject. I accept my fate.

Ah, now there's the Old Fool I know and love... sneaking in a wry shot (but total bullsh*t, as always) at the end!

Hannity is backpeddling on immigration, Carl Rove is under attack, and the GOP reconsiders the role of "angry old white guys" party! I guess a total azz whupping in a national election (and PA) tends to make one a bit more introspective!

I agree, the country has changed. There's no place for us anymore. This election has proven the mantle has passed we are now off in a different direction.

One of the things that lead to the GOP's loss, were vague comments ike yours: who is the "us" for whom thisis no longer a place, old man? Similar t the Tagbaggers cll to "take OUR country back!" Exactly to whom didthey believe the country belonged? From whom were they going to "take" it back? This kind of "dog whistle" racism that doesn't sell any more in America; a party of "angry old white men" will not succeed.

The sooner the GOP learns that, and modifies it's values to include ALL Americans, regardless of faith, creed, race or ethnic origins, they will continue to become irrelevant to the nation's voters.

gayshoes, you left out sexual perverts in your list of inclusion. Why is there still affirmative action and special treatment in your egalitarian utopia?

Good gawd, but right wing-nuts are such poor losers! You'd think by the second time round, they'd have adapted to defeat. I would imagine recognizing and abandoning their bigotry is far too much to ask of such "challenged" individuals!

I disagree. The GOP should not change it's values, the values are sound. As the communist and socialist countries have always fallen in disgrace and revolution the GOP should hold, quietly, to it's principles and be the saving grace when this generation of parasites finally implodes.

I wont be here to see it, and will no longer champion it, but it will happen.

Unfortunately for you, so also does the country disagree with you and your party. The country realizes that to label Obama a communist is ludicrous, and, I've always been somewhat incredulous of the fact the GOP's right wing-nut faction doesn't understand that ALL modern democracies have become socilaist, to varying degrees... and clearly, socialist countries have not "always fallen." It's that inability to deal with the reality of the modern world that will doom, and, I believe, relatively soon, the current extreme social conservatism that has an unnatural stranglehold on the GOP. Even Barry Goldwater, father of the late twentieth century conservative bent of the GOP, warned explicity against the domination of the religious right as causing the certain downfall of the GOP.

But you are correct to point to a generational- and, also, demographic change in the nation's electorate that lead to your last two presidential electoral defeats. But it will only destroy the current ruling coalition within the GOP, not the nation. Even the GOP will survive, but it's domination by your extremist ilk will be a sad little footnote to the nations's political history... and the sooner that happens, the better it will be for us all.

You're dying, old man... not only literally, but in term's of your twisted, extremist political ideology. Rest in peace.

You are correct.

When they have no food, give them food stamps.
When they are cold, provide heat and warmth.
When they are hot, provide air conditioning.
When they have no phones, give them Obama phones.
When they have no shelter, give them Section 8 and projects.
When they have no health care, give them Obama care.
When they need educated, throw money at the teachers unions.
When they have no money, give them welfare.
When they are hungry at school feed them free lunch.
When they get pregnant, give them abortions.
When they become addicted, give them programs.
When they want to go out, give them child care.
When they procreate, give them WIC.
When they kill and rob, make excuses for them.
When things go wrong, blame others.
When things are questioned, manipulate the facts.
When our agents are killed, create videos.

Your concepts have been proven a winner. I hope to reap the fruits as I pass through my dotage.

Well, well! The Old Fool is finally emerging from the depression percipitated by the sound drubbing his party received in Tuesday's election,'cause he's back to spewing the same lying bullsh*t he mistakenly believes America will buy.

One would have thought Election Day would have disabused you of that conservative crapola once and for all, but I see you're still a confirmed low-brow, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, gun-toting, bible-thumping, homo-hating, anti-science, bigoted ultra-conservative right wing-nut whack-job!

You and your cohorts lost America because of a generational and demographic tsunami that will wash away your outdated, ineffectual and hateful belief system both completely and permanently! I always believed your learning curve was exceptionally shallow, but I now realize it is simply non-existent!

No. No, No. You take me wrong. I am merely getting the rules correct so I can adjust to the new America. I will watch the news and the happenings around me with a new and enlightened eye. Our president has a majority in his corner and with such a mandate the citizens must get with it.

When it comes to "fairy" dust, I'll defer to obamasux, as being far more experienced in that particular proclivity.

Don't be concerned about new "rules," old fool... Democrats have always found the US Constitution to be quite sufficient.

Never use the word "hope" in your plan of action. A plan based on "hope" is a plea for "fairy dust" to solve your problems, which does not work. A lesson you will learn the hard way.

I believe it's the GOP that was handed a lesson delivered "the hard way" last Tuesday... try to learn something from it, eh, boy. Like the fact you fools aren't "taking back America," as Willie Romney repeatedly called for on the campaign trail, any time soon... or ever, actually! America is on the cusp of a generational and demographic change that will render the right wing-nut Tea Bagger driven GOP irrelevant. But the party will change, and they will shed the influence of the religious right and Tea Baggers rather than cast themselves into the dustbin of history!

Still waiting for your plan of action to solve the world's problems. All you can say is, "I hope all old whites die". Well, you can't eat, drink or heat "hope". I've heard of hypster doufus, you are a hopester doufus. Again, you now have the lead, and your people are still dying in wars, starving , no jobs, and no electricity for 120k voters in NY/NJ. What is your plan of action?
