The Obamaniac is Evil. PURE EVIL. Any right-thinking American with even half a brain knows that. (Which obviously leaves out the Democrats).

IF "right-thinking Americans" LOST in the previous elections last November, then why do the Republicans hold a MJOARITY of seats in the House Of Representatives, a MAJORITY of teh seats in the state legislatures, and a MAJORITY of the governorships, and are poised to pass a RIGHT-TO-WORK law TODAY in Michigan where they hold a MAJORITY of the seats in the state legislature AND the governor's mansion, IF THEY "LOST" ???

I didn't vote for him.

btw, trivia: assuming The Obamaniac serves out his term, that will mean the past 3 consecutive POTUSes served 2 terms each. How many times has that happened in American history, and when was teh last time it happened ?

GOOD LUCK !

and btw, the Michigan legislature just passed a right-to work law in that state !

WOO-HOO !

The unions are SMASHED !

Now I KNOW all you Obamaniac-lovers here are AGAINST right-to-work laws, and believe Americans do NOT have a right to work, and you want all Americans on the government dole, so The Obamaniac and his cohorts and minions in congress can micro-manage our lives, but the people have SPOKEN !

WOO-HOO !

SMASHED !

:)

(And teh Republicans wisely included an appropriation in the bill SPECIFICALLY SO the law CANNOT be repealed by a ballot initiative.)

WOO-HOO !

SMASHED !

We've been through this before. The Republicans lost the popular vote in the House as well. But they were able to hold onto the majority of the seats due to gerrymandering.

Yes, Republicans have indeed lost support of the majority of the public.

So says the guy who's been travelling the country trying to find a job that will keep him alive for the last two years... Do you think there's a reason for that? Maybe you can lean on your Republican friends to give you one of those cushy overpaid g'mint jobs.

President Obama won about 8.4 million Latino votes, using a rough calculation based on exit-poll data. Romney captured no more than 3.44 million votes.

Obama also improved his Hispanic performance in Florida, a result that included dominance of the heavily Puerto Rican swing precincts around Orlando and the election of a Cuban American Democrat to Congress, symbolizing the end of the GOPís decades-long lock on that community. In 2012, the share of the Latino vote rose to a record high 10%, a number thatís doubled in the past 16 years.

Obama won a majority of the popular vote. That's a majority in the real world. Now go back to school and learn your math.

Unfortunately the compromises that had to be made, made the wage rate unlivable. Think what it would be like if there wasn't even that. Sorry not all that 'union', but I don't trust greedy executives either. I've had 3 jobs outsourced, 1 're-badged' and laid off once. The last one, the 'COO' was drinking champagne on the video conference as he was telling the employees they were out of a job, a union would have been extremely helpful under that circumstance.
