The election showed some of the people are in the mood to live in a oxymoronic society. A corralled, free-for all.

I'll just stay out here riding the range, thank you. I never was the type to join in on a mass bungee jump over a rock quarry.

Obama had no need to be Kennedy. Kennedy had to run against real Republicans who were conservative, not like todays Republicans at all.
Obama needs to be Kennedy more than Kennedy did. Kennedy was a uniter - not a divider, and Kennedy knew that Civil Rights were for everyone. Obama believes he should be able to remove them from everyone at his discretion.(And 'promises' not to do it.)
Gag.

Of course, I concur with your second statement.

<quoted text>Not at all m'dear. You are a typical liberal and it is typical liberals that amaze me. Not outrage, amaze. Perhaps I'm not clear, I know I speak too plainly, but I am asking you where are your morals. Why are you so wonderfully unbigoted yet I have never heard you say anything about the bigoted things liberals say. I never hear you criticize those who have metaphorically lynched people like Condaleeza Rice, Mia (her last name escapes me) Herman Cain etc. Im asking why you never said anything when Sarah Palin was called the C word and so was Michelle Bachman, Michelle Malkin and sometimes right on this thread. Your marvelous lack of bigotry only goes one way...to the left. I think you know that I never have said a word about race making any difference, but I do know racism when I see it and it is rampant on the left and your silence and even your participation at times in spearing women, speaks quite loudly. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the left and their self righteous claim to caring. They don't care. Lyndon Johnson didn't care and Barack Obama doesn't care. They are cut from the same cloth and held people down for their own aggrandisement.
Now a series of lies and coverups are being ignored by your side. I asked once who you want to be, the person that believes Obama is so out of the loop that he had no idea off what happened in Benghazi, now with Petreaus or do you want to believe he lied. Either way you are supporting wrong for the sake of liberalism. Well good luck with that.
Now this is a long post,what I criticize you for. Sorry. But if you think what I say has no merit why are you defending yourself so vehemently?
I think you are confused. There have been several of us that made blanket statements condemning all of the hate speech from whatever source.

Why would individual comments about each and every case be necessary?

Perhaps I am incorrect, but I think Hip is one who is included in the blanket statements.

Interestingly enought, it is many of the Republicans on this thread (to include indipendents who lean in that direction) who have not joined in the blanket statement. Why is that?

There are no real conservatives on this thread to the best of my knowledge.

I do wish Romney had been elected, he is a good man but he is also a capable man. Hip asked what it was about him and answered and then later he said noone chose to answer. Typical, So'm going to repeat it (paraphrasing) I first paid attention to Romney when he was on a Des moines radio station when he ran in the primary in 2004. He was respectflly confrontive with Jan Mikelson, when questions came to him abut being Mormon. He was like he was in the first debate. I admired that he defended his right to separate his religion from the race. he should have. It wa obvious in this campaign that he knew exactly how to come into a failing company and turn things around. That's what this country needed.
And I'm going to say something that noone is saying. Something is screwy. I along with others really thought Romney would win. Polls looked good and the party was motivated. Liberal papers were endorsing him all over the country. I think the results were false. Obama might have won anyway but no way did he win by that much without some tweeking. Why was the military vote so low. Why were there counties all over Ohio with not ONE vote for Romney? There is nothing wrong with the Republican party and there sure was alot right with Romney.
No Obama being president doesn't really effect me. But it sure will effect my kids and my grandchild. I just hope the next president can undo some of this total bungling and neglect.
I told you straight up, Romney alienated the military with his war talk towards Iran and Syria. The military vote went to Obama. The military wants to see diplomacy work and if it doesn't......?

Who is talking about N Korea being a nuclear power and what are we doing about it?

Why is this different?

You want to worry, think about the Muslim nation of Pakistan and how full of militants it is and how it has been a nuclear power for some time.

Now, what counties in Ohio had ZERO votes for Romney?

And now you know why Romney lost the election and why it was not close.

Well, sort of. Enjoy this:
Dear Red States:
We're ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we've decided we're leaving.
We in New York intend to form our own country and we're taking the other Blue States with us.
In case you aren't aware that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the Northeast.
We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).
To sum up briefly:
You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.
We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.
We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.
You get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the red states pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.
With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90% of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all US mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.
We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.
We're taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.
Sincerely,
Citizen of the Enlightened States of America,

True. Here is something else true. When I was a kid and pop was a Lt. Cmdr in the U.S.C.G he needed to do something on base some fair Sat morning. I remember this, a black pen that said prop of the U.S. gov and told him to take it. He said there was no honor in that. Our gov has no honor anymore. This might be funny until you think this happened on the clock and the U.S. taxpayer is paying the bill. Now this is front and center, forget about the people that had honor that died in Benghazi and after its over these people will live fine for the rest of their lives. I've never been more ashamed of the so called leaders in this nation.

More worthless words. Its like a man that says do not overeat and then does just that. You are on the left and make it clear you think the nation is best when the left is in power. Condemn it all you want actions speak. Until you man up (I doubt that ever happens) it means as much as obama saying mean what you say and say what you mean. Just worthless spin.

I have to agree. Further, the FBI agent that started all this may be in trouble as well. No official complaint, just a friend asking for a favor. A friend he sent a photo to of himself shirtless showing off his manly pecs.

True, obama was re-elected by those that voted for him... which happened to be less than 20% of the total U.S. population.

Who would have ever thought there were so many socialists and "takers" protecting their handouts in the USA? We'll see what happens in 2014 and 2016 when obama's next four years take us into a recession, more job losses, higher debt, and more credit downgrades.

The only line of defense America has left is the House that we voted back in to hold the line on obama and the Democrat's tax and spend policies!

Good post.

I didn't respond because candidate Romney is history, why should I bother defending policies that no longer matter. We had the far better candidate, with much better policies, but neither matter now.

BTW, in Philadelphia, they too had many districts where Romney received no votes. Oddly, all Republican poll watchers were removed from polling places in Philly, and had to get a judge to rule that they be allowed to return. I'm sure that those few unsupervised hours that the Republican poll watchers were locked out had nothing to do with those suspicious results.

For months prior to the election, I was amused but perplexed by your seeming certainty of a Mitt landslide. I assumed it was just whistling in the dark, trying to keep up the spirits of the troops. Now it is clear - Fox & Co have been misleading you all throughout with false hope. This is indisputable. After watching Rove's funny little tussle with the facts Tuesday nite, I actually think they even fooled themselves. Like my boss used to say, "That guy lies so much he gets to believin' himself."
I had heard they underestimated Obama's groundgame once again. I had also heard Romney's ground game crashed on election day. It was based on a computer program that was suppose to send out info to 30,000 volunteers waiting for instructions on where to go to get the vote out. The program crashed leaving the volunteers in the lurch with no instruction on where to go.

I'm convinced he won on social issues. Romney couldn't get the economic issues across well enough.

I'm amazed at the people I talk to who are unconcerned with our debt and spending, I wonder how many are even aware or are paying attention. When free birth control is a bigger issue then 16 trillion dollar debt you have to wonder.

Several keep saying that no one has risen to the challenge of offering just what the president has done to deserve re-election. At numerous junctures pre-election, more than one poster has offered a listing of their own rationales for their vote. It availeth nothing - before long we see yet again another claiming that "no one will say what he's DONE". So, ok, we get it. They don't want to know. They must maintain their bitterness at all costs. It is like a child for them to nurture and pet like Gollum's "precious". They deeply distrust the democratic system. They have nothing but disdain for the majority of their fellow Americans. Misinformation and smear are as mother's milk. Ignorance is their chosen game, fear is their electoral ace in the hole, and division their stake. They are just self-aware enough to be sure to pre-emptively accuse everyone else of their own glaring deficiencies, since the best defense is a good offense.
Can't imagine why true Independents and Undecideds didn't want to be part of that again.
Maybe some of us jus plain ole disagree with what you would call Obamas accomplishments. Many people think Obamacare was a great accomplishment, many think it will bankrupt us. Just one example.
