Where have you been? The dems didn't reach across the aisle the last 4 years, as a matter of fact they did things behind closed doors, Harry Reid refused to bring bills up for a vote that the house had passed and obama ramrodded by use of executive order. It is only going to get worse.Obama is a globalist. We will become like Europe. Bigger government and less freedom. The liberals are already limiting the freedom of Christians, and they are only just beginning. They are attacking the NRA, they are choosing our medical care, telling us what to eat.Wait until obama signs the treaties with the un and further takes away American sovereignty, and we have the likes of Iran, and russia telling us how to live. The good news,God has a plan which will prevail.
And then you question why you lost the election. The public seen where the obstruction came from and seen through the conspiracy theories. Keep it up and you can cross off 2016.
Happy

A great time to be alive. The end of the republican party as we know it. Never again will they be a viable alternative to the people, about time. The age of me first and the heck with my neighbor is over in politics. As stated last night by any number of talking heads the demographic in this country has changed, Romney didn't change with it. The best part? All his millionaire backers lost their shirts trying to put him in office. I have no qualms about saying, I told you so, I knew Obama would win because of the countries changing dynamic, plus, he really did what he could do alienate the female vote, I think he really takes a dim view of women, as his belief system would dictate. So write this date in the history books, the old fat white guys are on the way out, for good.

The American People have spoken. We are a Democracy.

It's early. The scabs have not had time to cover the wounds of defeat. During the contest the rhetoric exceeded reasonable levels, and both sides felt the other party was responsible for the volume of rancor.

I would hope that those who verbally want to continue the conversation with divisive sentiments will pause and reconsider what the American people have voted for. That they will not continue to depend upon limited sources for information to boost their ideals, but open their minds to a variety of outlets so they can see the big picture. And most importantly, heed the words of our President in his speech early Wednesday Morning; "We are not a red America. We are not a blue America. We are the United States of America."

No leaders in Washington are going to do everything we want. They should take into consideration the wants and needs of all people, not the rhetoric of a few. Then vote

LETS HOPE THIS YEAR THE POLITICIANS LISTEN. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN LOUD AND CLEAR. NOW IT'S TIME FOR THAT RED, WHITE, AND BLUE AMERICA TO BACK, NOT DEVIDE OUR GOVERNMENT

more to come.

"Ya Vol" I may very well go straight to hell, hopefully the Good Lord will intervene. But there are two aspects of your comment that stand tall and that is your name "Ya Vol" and that is reminisant of Hitler isn't it? And secondly, you certainly don't and never will have the wherewithall to send me to hell. It must be understood that we are so far in debt and Obama put us there, that it defies logic why anybody believes that his "way" is better. I am a
person within a certain number of our population
that believe that the strength of this country lies
not in the size of government but how much the
goverment stays out of our lives.
You aren't very intelligent. You are nothing but a bully & your kids are probably bullys also! It was Obama's Re"pug"lican congress that put us in debt. The repuglican congress are a bunch of whiny babies that want their own way & will not work with the president like a normal adult should.

"Tried of it"... Have you ever defended your country or volunteered in your community to such an extent that you have placed your life in jepordy for your fellow man? You probably haven't and to that end, why in the hell would people like us want to defend the citizens that believe that who we are and what we are have been given away to the likes of people who simply want a hand out. Remember the mindless "female" who was proclaiming that "she got welfare and now she has an Obama phone". For Gods sake, where is our great country headed when fools like that make the press but no real mention is made in the main stream media of the 4 Americans killed in Libya and when anything was said by the Adminstration it was a lie. See the world through whose lens and whose eyes? This Country was built on better ideals and stronger shoulders. Maybe it is you who needs to reevalute how you see this great country.
I have served as an infantry officer in the US Army, I defended the country that Obama represents - a country where we take care of each other. Granted there are abuses in the system - abuses in all of the welfare systems (which includes corporate welfare)---it would be nice if we could work together to resolve some of these problems. This country was built on the shoulders of immigrants, white, black, brown and yellow - rich and poor - all contributed, all at some point needed assistance. I have know people on government assistance - all would rather have a job, all want more for their children. Your attitude feeds the fires of distrust and hate and does nothing to resolve any of our problems.

No, I disagree; the old fat white guys are working on 2016 as I write.
The R party will be rebranded and shed most of the radical influences and control(the Dems did a lot of that for them yesterday .. so in a sense helped them !)
The new and improved party will be a morph of a progressive Bushy/Reaganesque type political engine, with a huge push on family values, energy independence (domestic sources: oil and coal)a tougher, bully-like return to foreign policy, huge corporate incentive promises, and middle class reverence. In addition, there will be a complete re-design of strategies,attitudes and policies that promise to positively positively affect families, women, minorities, illegal aliens and the african american / hispanic bloc, senior citizens, and in general, Americans that are part of the infamous "47%" .
So, no, they are not out for good, but drawing blueprints for the next election.
With our country so evenly divided, it could easily tip to either side, even with a great economy.

Wrong, the Republicans are staying. The power in Congress is unchanged.

With President Obama securing a second term Tuesday night, he will continue to face a divided Congress. The whiny Republicans will not work with Obama, like a normal adult should interact with people, so there will be problems from now on!

Obama won due to the Latino vote, the Black vote and, to a lesser extent, the female vote. That tells you all you need to know.

Let's see where the deficit is in two years, let's see how GM fares in the next three years, and let's see how well the U.S. does in foreign affairs in his second term.

Fox News might have had ten years to "dumb down" conservatives, but the lib schools, Fed interference in education, and the major news networks have had since LBJ's term to nurture the dumbing down process. Welcome to America, 2012. You get the governance you deserve.

You must not be a woman, not latino, african american, not a senior citizen, not a young person or a student.
That leaves only one thing left : You are a single, middle aged white male redneck without a tea party to support you.

The Tea Party isn't really what it says it is, now is it? If it really was who it said it was the face of it would be Ron Paul or Gary Johnson.

Just like the country has moved forward over the last four years? Oh yeah, the past four years are still Bush's fault or the obstructionist house or Boehner or...excuses, excuses. What will it be in 2016?

It's best not to try to debate with foxnews watchers and just say... "Ohhhhh, you're one of those." The day a foxnews watcher comes up with an individually conceptualized and rational thought is the day they're no longer foxnews watchers

You're right, but if you really wanted to know what was in it, it was on line. All 800 pages of it, and the 1200 pages of riders, more than 2000 pages in total. There was no transparency, there was no public comment, and I happen to disagree with Judge Roberts, but I'm not a USSC justice.
