LOL. Even WITH the GOP TEA Party RINOs attempt at voter suppression, President Obama won the majority vote and the electoral college.

Someone should tell Billy Gaham that God voted on November 6th....and he backed the candidate who worked to help the needy and poor of this country.

With the GOP TEA Party RINOs attempts at voter suppression this year....you have to ask:

1) Would President Obama have had a bigger win if more people had been allowed to vote? or

2) Did the GOP TEA Party RINOs shoot themselves in the foot and turned away some of their base?

These people are so gullible. Karl Rove walks off into the sunset with Million of dollars he solicited from wealthy donors and not a one of the people he backed in the Senate or for President won.

Karl Rove turned out to be nothing more than a typical pick pocket.

Next to be exposed will be John Boehner. He's about to be put out to pasture in January, there's no way he get to be speaker again.

The wheels have totally fallen off of the GOP Wagon.

Pretty stupid thought process. He didn't send angels to Sodom to kill everyone, he sent them to find one true believer. So in God's eyes, in the democratic party, he's still looking for that one.

Poor Le Jimbo....all his spamming all he has to show for his effort is the nomination of a phony conservative to the GOP TEA Party RINO ticket. Poor poor off topic Frenchman. Wrong about Romney. Wrong about Obamacare. Wrong about everything else.

Obama, Valerie Jarrett,Axelrod,Soros's (etc.). It's bigger than "just fraud"/It was an "Arranged Election"!

Rep Allen West saw a lead of 2000 in one of the districts disappear into a deficit of 2500 in the last hours which called for suspicions of tampering. Some ballot counts were done behind closed doors without the proper authorities watching.

The same disappearance of votes were happening to Romney, his leads in several swing states falling dramatically in the later hours of count.

Then again, maybe they just lost.

The wife and I were on our way back from watching the new James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ at the IMAX Theater last night when we came upon some of those anti-Obama billboards with him bowing to the Saudi King with before and after gas prices posted, and the other billboard with a nuke missile aimed at Israel reading,“Friends don’t let friends get nuked”– and we chuckled and shook our heads and I said,“They never realized that those billboards would do more to help President Obama than hurt him”.

These silly right-wing idiots never understood that hate does not a political victory make. For four years the unpatriotic right spewed the most vile and disgusting hate towards this President and all it did was galvanize the majority of the country to support Obama and reject right-wing hate. The day before the election I heard this right-wing jerk proclaim on the radio that Romney would win Florida and the election because he didn’t see as many Obama bumper stickers as he did in 2008… just like he didn’t see that tsunami ass kicking coming either, LOL.

Well, the election system does need reform. I think majority of this we could all agree upon.

In particular, the removal of the electoral college. Every other election in the US is majority of the popular vote. Senate, House, Mayor, Governor, County, City.....

However, in the US for President it is the Electoral Votes that matter and the people's vote? Well, that means absolutely freaking nothing. It is a popularity contest, a high school drama fest, crap like that.

What completely astounded me on election night was the electoral college votes and how they were being given out. I think it was Vermont and a couple of other states. Less than 1% of the vote was in and 5 minutes after the polls closed. There was a declared winner and the electoral votes issued out. Does anyone see the issue there? What about your vote? Means nothing.

Now regarding the ID for voting. Absolutely. How freaking difficult is it to show up at your voting booth with a photo ID and your voter registration card? I have been voting since 1993. The only time I did not vote at a voting booth was when I was in the Navy from 95-01. Then I did absentee. Each time you move, you have to change your address on your drivers license. Well, update your voter registration as well. What is the problem? Wake up, smell yourself, get your shit together and be freaking responsible.

Your so called President won the election Tuesday, and he is already out of town. You won't get any more out of him this term then you did the last. He has that welfare culture where you get money for doing nothing, and you cannot fix that problem.
