UPDATE: In 59 Philly divisions, Romney did not get a single vote... This did not even happen under Chavez, Castro or Saddam Hussein. This is basically impossible and we have a very questionable election. We have it in most of the swing states especially Florida where they admit to irregularities but refuse to do a complete recount. This is how Franken won as well.
It's not "racist" for a black person to vote for Obama, race-baiting asshat troll.

You lost. Get over it. Go on with your pathetic life. Stop lying.

You are extremely stupid and immature as others have noted. How old are you? If it's older than 18 you need to seriously look at yourself and begin soul searching on where you went wrong and how to get help.

Children should be seen and not heard, or read. Are you still filled with hate after wining the defeat of America. It must be yourself your hate is focused on. Such a pity.

No hate, joy that we re-elected the right man for the job. Although yes, there's a certain amount of glee that your kind was slapped down and sent crying to your rooms....LOL

I don't take idiotic requests from the St. Paul Troll. Search whatever blackened lump you call your "soul" for why you troll, spam, hate, and smear other posters.

You are just displaying more idiocy, numbnuts. You are NOT doing your side any good on here and would be better served to go volunteer at your local democrat office where they will put you on some type of manual task with NO interaction with the general public.

You seem obsessed with "manual tasks" mops, and broomclosets...is that where your local ReTHUGlican congressman took you to show you the 'ins and outs of politics,' perhaps? Kind of a nostaglia thing?

Not all Latinos are bigots...

A new survey conducted by Lake Research Partners found that strong majorities of Latino registered voters supported access to legal abortion, affirmed that they would offer support to a close friend or family member who had an abortion, and opposed politicians interfering in personal, private decisions about abortion.

Nearly seven in ten Latino voters agreed with the statement, "even though church leaders take a position against abortion, when it comes to the law, I believe it should remain legal." This groundbreaking poll, conducted on behalf of NLIRH and the Reproductive Health Technologies Project (RHTP), sheds new light on Latino/a attitudes by going beyond legality to gauge feelings related to judgment and support around abortion.

This new research confirms what NLIRH has known for a long time--there are widespread misconceptions when it comes to Latino/a attitudes toward abortion.

Key findings:

Latinos support a woman's right to make decisions.

74% of Latino registered voters agree that a woman has a right to make her own personal, private decisions about abortion without politicians interfering.

Latinos don't think we should judge other women's decisions.

73% of Latino registered voters agree that we should not judge someone who feels they are not ready to be a parent. 57% strongly agrees with this statement.

Latinos are supportive of close friends and family members choosing abortion.

67% of Latino voters say they would give support to a close friend or family member who had an abortion. 43% say they would provide a lot of support. Only 23% says they would not feel comfortable offering support.

Latinos don't think money should determine access to abortion.

61% agree that the amount of money a woman has or does not have should not determine whether she could have an abortion when she needs one.

Latinos are willing to disagree with church leaders.

68% agree with the statement “even though church leaders take a position against abortion, when it comes to the law, I believe it should remain legal.”

I dont understand either why Liberals are so filled with Hate after their win.
I was told once the only thing worse then a sore loser was a sore winner and the Libs all seem to be sore winners.

The real racists are the liberals keeping the blacks and poor down in slavery. You may say I'm nuts, but is being on "da welfare and having Obama phone" begging and being a parasite not being in real slavery? If you don't think so, you are a fool.

Typical vile, dumb leftist ass.....first instinct is always to be vicious or perverted. No numbnuts, I don't have an obsession with broom closets. I happen to believe that any work is good work and for the mentally challenged unskilled labor like you, doing a manual task can make you useful versus the complete waste of time you spend on here.

Mindless, meaningless response on your part. Obviously there was no "fraud" necessary for Mr. Obama's overwhelming win, nor could you provide evidence of any.
