45 million qualified voters didn't vote in 2008 because they didn't like the candidates. In 2012, 50 million qualified voters didn't vote for the same reason. That is nothing new though. Only an average of 63% of American citizens participate in elections. Iraq has a better voter turn out than the USA.

When one of the attackers yells "Take that, cracker!" you'll have it on tape, and the Justice Department will have all the evidence necessary to file charges for a hate crime. Now, if they happen to yell, "Take that, mudderfocker!", you're out of luck.
You'd be better off blocking yourself from WND, you pale thin crisp. We keep hoping your computer gets run over by an imaginary grandchild driving an imaginary red roadster. So far, it's obvious you're stuck in a wheelchair or relegated to a walker. Have a good day, loser.
Really? You poor thing. It is a new day and you start it this way-says alot about you! You are showing your jealousy. Showing it loud and clear. Do you wish you could give your child a red roadster? She could and did. You are hung up on this fact. Now that it is fall, the chill is definitely in the air. You seem to be the mean girl this time of year. Are you the the loser? The one regulated to a wheelchair, walker out of the question. You need to deal with your deadly sin of jealousy and hate. You are bitter. Seek help for your problems. Stop projecting them towards others who you disagree with. That is a problem with desperate people like you. Sad, sad, sad! Do you need true exposure?

In a country as racially diverse as America, how can a man run for elected office and end up with 88% of the people that voted for him being from one single racial group if race was not a motivating factor in how they voted?
Any takers?
50 million people in America didn't vote.

Why should he focus on his college years? If you don't want us to bring up George W. Bush because that involves history you cannot allow the exception for President Obama. Your duplicity is showing again.

In an earlier exchange you admitted that you did not serve in our military. Now you claim you did. You have a problem with the truth. That is truly dishonorable.

<quoted text>Don't call yourself an idiot (although you might be). You've stated that YOU voted for Obama and have since had a change of heart about that vote. Well, I haven't had a change of heart - would cast my vote again the same way given the same option.
I voted for Obama in 2008 because I was tired of eight years of Cheney/Bush and McCain/Palin represented more of the same. The same thing in 2012. As soon as Romney received his parties nomination, the team of handlers changed and guess who those people were? You got it! It was Bush/Cheney's people. Obama got my vote because there was no better option.

Voting for the least of two evils is all we have here in the USA.

One of my children drives a nice little red "car". LOL I didn't have to supply it. The eldest has a nice Volvo that is a pain in the azz to subsidize when it needs service but very safe to tote around a child. I prefer the old vehicles without all the electronic gizmos. Another drives a classic BMW, and the youngest - a little SUV that it's about time to replace. I didn't buy any of them any of those.

I'm such a mean girl!

You're here rotating through identities on a dime though. Keep it up! We're seeing how you roll as you change your socks.

Obviously you didn't understand the matter.

Be 'he' you are referring to the intelligence gathering departments of the United States, right? As those divisions are bipartisan, it is hardly subject to political nonsense that is your fantasy.

Oh well, you show a need to be a victim. Carry on.

I believe that perspective has already been expressed. So, maybe you should acknowledge that you already have the best option of the options before us and show a little support that we preferred Obama's Plan to the alternative - which doesn't appear to have changed in ANY positive manner.

It gets old reading the "hate" without anybody providing some fabulous alternative we can all get behind. What? Gutting the social welfare safety net, giving rich people more money, further enabling corporatists to rip off the middle class and push the working poor even further into poverty? Sorry. Can't go there. You suit yourself.

I like the part where he drags out three or four of his socks and tries to pretend he has a bunch of support.
Credit where it's due though, POS is putting on a pretty good one man show of his own right now.
What's really funny is watching you idiots accuse everyone of being me.

I had things to do last night so I wasn't here to laugh at you then. It's still up there today so I don't have to miss out on the fun.

As far as POS, no sympathy here, the worthless coward just got caught lying about serving in the military.
A man can't sink any lower than that.
A man who keeps chickens locked up in small cages behind his mobile home is pretty low. Someone who raises fighting cocks is really low too. But the lowest man of all is the man who like taking it up the stink hole. You can't get any lower than that and still be considered human.

The data from the 2012 election has not been released by the census bureau yet. Anything you have is speculative, as the census bureau has not released the official document yet.

The reason for not voting is hardly as simple as you suggest.

6.6 million Americans, excluding the military, are living abroad. Some choose to vote but many don't. We have roughly 2.5 million active military personnel.

Those confined to jails, nursing homes, hospitals and shelters typically do not have access to polling places. As of July 2012, we had 6 million people in jail within the United States.

Many people simply are unable to vote - either work or family commitment prevent such from happening.

While I am certain that some stayed away from the polls because they didn't embrace either major candidate, your generalization is hardly astute.
