When one party wants to restrict rights for women and gay people and protect corporations to the expense of individuals rights it's hard to vote for that party.

Can't fully agree with that...seem's many people are well aware of many of the issues of the day....i do agree that, as media and party leadership has become more and more partisan, serving their party interests more than the countrys....many supporters have followed....

A Gallup poll done before the election showed how people describe themselves politically:

Republican - 27%

Independent - 35%

Democrat - 36%

Obviously, it took quite a few Independents to re-elect Obama.

I'm one of those. I certainly do not consider Obama infallible and don't agree with everything he does.

But he was, beyond any reasonable doubt, the better of the two choices in both 2008 and 2012.

If Republicans nominate a good leader in the future, I will certainly consider voting for that candidate.

Nice editing of the Urban Dictionary, by the way did you see that Romney got credit for telling the biggest lie of the year?

Maybe that's one of the reasons, not your imaginary wish as to why Obama was re-elected. There were many different kind of Obama supporters, most support him because we believe people should have the freedom to make decisions for themselves and corporations need to have influence on our lives.

Romney lost to majority of people who rejected his idea of what America should be.

That's called democracy.

I would consider voting for a Republican, but that Republican would have no resemblance to current day republicans. Today's republican is a regressive in a progressive world.

That is just what you are taught, in order to justify that the majority of americans can see through all the biased media attacks and the partisan party politics.....the rest is on you.....

Agreed. "Today's republican" is, very often, an uninformed, ignorant, often illiterate redneck whose strings are being pulled by billionaires using him/her to advance the interests of the very rich.

I abhor the use of hate, fear and greed to fool working people into voting for policies that favor the ultra-rich.

Abraham Lincoln, or even Ronald Reagan, would be horrified by what has happened to Republicans. As am I.

Dang! Are you telling me Romney told a bigger lie than even, say, Sarah Palin or Rick Perry? I'm shocked. I need to look that up to see what could be THAT bad.

No need to look further, here you go, it was his Romney's Jeep ad claiming Obama sold them to Italy and they would be built in China.

Thanks. Even as cynical as I have become, I still underestimate the depravity of power-mad politicians.

There is no lie so ludicrous that insecure, jealous, bigoted ignoramouses will not choose to believe it.
