More like fake politicians and the danger of the Astroturf groups like the tea-baggers… the gullible right-wing idiots were stupid enough to be fooled into supporting the so-called tea Party; a group that was all about racism and hate and not about governing or the well being of the nation. President Obama made so many brilliant chess moves over the last 4 years to box the tea-baggers in and ultimately set up the right to be resoundingly defeated on November 6th as he was sent back to Washington in a landslide with a massive mandate to do whatever he wants.

Obama had triple the amount of followers on Twitter than Romney, and that just showed that the American people gravitated towards real leadership and away from hate, lies and flip flopping fools.
It feels so great to wake up every day since the election knowing that we put Obama back in the White House as the republican Party imploded and is no longer a viable opposition in this Center-Left country.

God has truly blessed America!
