You guys underestimate those who threw out Romney as a worthless candidate (yes even those who were the "anybody but ROmney" crowd) and you underestimate those voters who wanted a second Obama term.
Continuing to dump on the electoriate isn't helpful but, in my humble opinion, you should be dumping on ROmney who was slated by the fux bobbleheads, etc. to be sailing into the White House on his dancing horse.
How did that work out for you folks and the issues?
Again, I was not a big Romney fan. I always thought he was a RINO and always will be. But let's look at the last election from a private industry point of view.

You have a company CEO who has a four year contract so he virtually can't be fired. Now his contract is up, and it's up to the company to renew it for another four years.

Looking at his past record, he made the company less credit worthy. No new employment was gained and in fact, people had to get laid off. He inflicted massive debt and insists it's the last CEO's fault right up to the fourth year. His lies about what he planned on doing with the company are countless, and now places the current company woes on the people in the company board.

So it's renew his contract for another four years, or a new applicant for the job that was quite successful in his life. A man who never smoked, took a drink, never was involved in illegal narcotics unlike the current CEO who admitted to such illegal activity. You're not sure about him, but given the two choices, which is the smart one?

if you made the call, the cpmpany would be dead long ago.

actually, our CEO can be fired.

in fact, obama got us back to the same number of jobs from before the HISTORIC death spiral of job loss Bush left him. that would be historic job creation.

good thing you don't run a company...

No, there are just as many jobs today as when DumBama took office over four years ago. No change. No change in unemployment, although after he took office, many jobs were lost. He regained only what he lost on his watch.

So what was gained? We gained more families in poverty, more government dependents, more debt, more deficit spending, and he wishes to continue in this direction. But we are certainly better off than we wold be with a successful man like Romney.

It's a shame that you and I don't own companies competing against each other so we could prove which business strategy is a failure and which one was a success. My business strategy would be to remove failure from my enterprise while yours would be to continue failure because you didn't want to chance change.

It's a good thin YOU don't run a company.

The death spiral obama inherited couldn't be stopped immediately by anyone. those losses were on bush's record. regardless, they were back in under 4 years

No, merely open to the possibility.
Knowing a little about R/C airplanes, I know damned well a hobbyist controller on the ground isn't going to be flying a 3 foot model at 1500 feet. With hobby equipment, you can only control it as far as you can see it. You'd play hell controlling a 3 foot model at 500 feet, let alone 1500. Not impossible, but certainly not easy, and risking jail time.
Like many other things we see here on Topix, lots of speculation and little actual facts.

I found another news report of the incident.

The pilots described the object as something similar to this:

As I told people before the election, I'm not voting for Romney, I'm voting against DumBama, and I think if you could survey all of Romney's voters, that would probably be the number one answer.
DumBama voters on the other hand didn't vote against Romney, they voted against Republicans no matter who was up there. How could anybody look at DumBama's miserably failed record and say "I want four more years of that!"
I don't need to prove my assertion about DumBama voters, Howard Stern already did. He sent his minions out into the streets of NYC to interview DumBama supporters before the election. Here is what he found:
http://realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/09/24...
It seems that more people voted against a candidate or party in the past election then in any that I can recall.
The number of independent vote repelled by 'legitimate rape'...ect probably exceed the margin that Obama won by.
Also using Howard Stern as a credible source of information shows us something

Yes I know and I'll repeat there has to be some kind of a process, this can not be the unchecked opinion of the President, no matter which party he or she is from or the policy is wrong.
And I am not only referring to drones used in a lethal way, they could be used in, to undermine the fifth, in domestic spying as well.

I find it kind of funny that the "Tea Party" is all about small government, yet they don't bring to the table any actual real world ideas that won't send the country into a real civil war. The "tea party" is full of dolts and morons that have no real idea how a country is run successfully. Countries are not businesses that have one person or a small group of people that call all the shots who are not answerable to anyone. Is giving welfare to generations of the same families a good idea? Of course not. Is this happening as much as the "tea party" would like us to believe? No it isn't. And why is corporate welfare OK in a "free market" "capitalist" economy? Why are these great patriots OK with trade agreements that get rid of tariffs?

So by your logic, since America is a Christian nation, voting Romney in would be akin to making him Pope.

lol! The tea-p is why conservatives are in trouble son.

If they're as good and strong as some like you claim, they should break off the conservative teet and do their own thing. But unfortunately for them, they're just a parasite for the GOP.
