The Liberal establishment in California must have been Shock: Andy Vidak, the Republican farmer, won the special election runoff for the 16th District Senate seat when his opponent, Democrat Leticia Perez, a Kern County Supervisor, conceded!! WOW

News flash. You can't fire someone without a valid reason. That's why people are put on administrative leave pending an investigation into the facts surrounded the issue. As I have said before, you are not too bright.

Obama 26 states.
Romney 24 states.
Obama 65,899,000.
Romney 60,932,000.
Obama 51.1%.
Romney 47.2%.
Obama won the liberal states with the larger populations by the biggest margins - by approximately 2 million in New York and 3 million in California.
He barely won Florida and other states by a slim margin.
So I wouldn't call it a mandate or anything like that.
Guess if you keep promising everybody everything even if you don't deliver and lie enough about your opponent and run enough smear campaign ads, you're bound to win over a lot of liberals.
PolitiFacts have proved Republicans have been the bigger liars. "Romney says Obama failed to pass a budget.

Mostly False. The Republican presidential aspirant made this claim in April 2012, faulting Obama for failing to pass a budget. Congress twice voted down the president’s budget requests. However, the job of passing a budget resolution is not the president’s. That responsibility falls to Congress, and even then the president doesn’t sign it. The votes to reject Obama’s budget proposals amounted to nothing more than political theater." "Obama says Reagan raised debt ceiling 18 times; George W. Bush seven times.

True. This July 2011 claim reflects the fact that raising the debt ceiling has historically been an issue tackled by Republicans and Democrats alike. President Reagan agreed to raise the debt ceiling 18 times and George W. Bush did so seven times." Ronald Reagan even famously said that 'government deficits don't matter'.

In 2012, Obama disingenuously accused Romney of being anti-education and not wanting to invest in the future while ridiculing Romney’s personal wealth. An Obama aide, Stephanie Cutter, made unsubstantiated and off-the-wall claims that Romney could be a felon for allegedly not paying his taxes, and Vice President Joe Biden tried to convince voters that Romney wanted to return to the days of slavery. A pro-Obama Super PAC, Priorities USA, released an ad that accused Romney of causing a women’s death by shutting down a steel plant. Add to that the spurious and invisible “war on women.”
According to an NBC/WSJ poll conducted in late July, Obama had the most “very negative” ads at 32% compared to Romney's 24%.
But liberals will believe anything and Romney didn't have an urgent enough message.
So, you think that people didn't love his message: "I like Michigan, the trees are the right height"?
Romney didn't release his tax returns because he knew it would sink him even further. The 47% comment sunk him the most.
Romneys business practices were unscrupulous; the strategy of over burdening companies with debt and filing bankruptcies and firing people, stealing their pensions was unconscionable.
So, is he running again?

Not sure what YOUR point is. Liberals in New York and California don't watch Fox. The margin of votes in these two states alone plus D.C. put him over the top.

You aren't surprised by that, are you? It's also why liberals in New York and California are running their states into the ground by over taxing and electing perverts.

It's a liberal thing.

Liberals would rather elect a proven disaster than admit they're clueless.

I'm not the one whining about why other people don't see things your way son.

So I really don't need to leave now do I?

You otoh, cry and complain and throw a temper tantrum every time you don't get your way. Seems to me you're better off in a country you better identify with... which is certainly not the US of A!

You're obsessive jealousy over the attractive Sarah is bordering on the psychotic. It's not her fault you're such an obese, odious, drunken ogre living alone.

Out of courtesy, they left it there and didn't mention the lack of intelligence!
