Seriously? This is your "View" after last night election?

"Had Romney been a bit clearer, a bit more consistent, a little less clumsy, Barack Obama would no doubt have joined the ranks of Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush as a one-term president."
Clumsy? Maybe if he had shown compassion instead of contempt (47% remark), had he been open and embracing of diversity rather than mocking it ("if I were Latino this would be easier").
Romney lost because his core values are those of a man who has spent his life destroying companies to sell their parts at a profit to himself and his investors, with no thought about the devastation to the people who worked at these companies. This ethic showed in his campaign and it is that ethic that lost this race- not 'being clumsy'.

Also, "The president is a leader who now needs to lead. But he cannot do it alone, nor should he be expected to do so.", where was this sentiment over the last four years as the GOP sat on their thumb?

"His administration, often accused of arrogance, should be humbled by Tuesday's results. This was not a gesture of love that Americans sent to Barack Obama, it was a plea for help.", again you are mistaken, it was a demand that, yes this man is our president, and yes you (GOP Senate) should stop being petty and begin re-learning what it means to compromise.

Karl Roves strategy for Bush was embrace the radical right then divide and conquer, lets hope that strategy finally died with Romneys campaign last night. Lets hope moving forward we are able to unite, and begin to heal the divide created during the Bush years and kept alive by the GOP in the Senate.

So you are saying that if Mitt Romney had been a better candidate, he might have won? O K, sure. But he wasn't, so he lost. The voters chose President Obama. He won most of the swing states. For weeks pundits have been blathering on about how it was a close election, how it could go either way, but Fox News called the election for the president a half hour after the polls closed on the west coast. That is not what happens in a close election. I think you need to calm down and look at reality. It is not a scary, horrible thing. I think the real mandate or warning or what have you is to the republicans--stop obstructing. Get with the program. This is our country, act like it.
