Right....
Nobody believes the numbers, idiot.
The proof of the numbers is in who won the election ~~ twice.

Keep doing the same mistakes & see which party wins again in 2016.

The numbers for the last election isn't out yet, it was 6 months before they were compiled & released for the 2008 election. But here's the numbers for 2008. More women voted than men.

70.4 million ~~ the number of women who voted in the 2008 presidential election, versus 60.7 million men. Not registered, but the number that actually voted.

65.7 percent ~~ the percentage of women voters who voted in the 2008 election.

61.5 percent ~~ the percentage of male voters who voted in the 2008 election.

We made a real difference. We are a true voting force as seen in the 2008 election & again in the last one.

But did or will the republicans learn from it? Nope. Not in any way. There's even been another republican leader that's said we can't become pregnant from being raped. It's history repeating itself. Which means another democrat President in 2016.

The way you talk, you actually think you won something. You only empowered a group of individuals hell bent on dragging this nation down to 3rd world standards. Every year gets worse economically for the middle class worker, whilst your idols grow fatter. You think you matter to them. Pffft!! You are only as valuable as your vote. Whicj is worth nothing when it's not an election year. Bloody hell, Wake up!

Read the last sentance carefully, idiot.

One thing it taught us is the Democrats think they can convince the population that there can be hundreds of thousands of voters comprixed of crackheads, crackwhores, high school dropouts, welfare slugs, etc., etc., etc. and not one of those incompetent dupes will press the wrong button by mistake. That is an impossibility.

Truthfully, concerning post 7150, if the republicans ever want to hold the white house again they better suck up to or at least leave the women alone. I switched through several tv channels on election night and every one of them remarked about the turnout of women. If they want abortion leave them alone and let them keep it, and if they want equal pay laws give it to them.

i have said 1,000 times since Election Day.
the social conservatives in the GOP Re-elected Obama singlehanded
If they would have just shut up, Romney could have won.
I don't believe that puople incapable of maintaining silence for a couple of months are capable of learning lessons quickly. Most likely the GOP is doomed to fight Quioxitic crusades for a while.
All i can do is encourage them to stick to their guns...

Sen. Feinstein ready to introduce new ban on assault weapons
By Jonathan Easley - 01/24/13 07:46 AM ET

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) will introduce a bill banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips on Thursday.
Feinstein’s bill will expand the criteria for classifying military-style assault weapons from a 1994 law, which lapsed a decade later. Her new measure will ban the sale of about 150 types of firearms, including some rifles and handguns, as well as the sale of high-capacity magazines, according to USA Today.

………AND THE KILLER CLAUSE……

The bill will exempt firearms used for hunting and will grandfather in guns and magazines owned before the law’s potential enactment. However, the grandfathered weapons will be logged in a national registry.

2 million conservatives stayed home because they were tired of being forced to vote for a marxist like Obama or a moderate like Romney. Very simple really, it's the old you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all the people all the time.

Sure maggot muncher, when you have a choice between a communist and a moderate, it becomes easy to take the only choice there was. Unfortunatly over two million didn't see it my way.......they stayed home. But you don't care, you prefer to continue your unregistered multi name post that are over 247,227 now, under this one name and perfectly describes you.

<quoted text>You are dancing around so much it looks like you are trying out for "Dancing with the Stars".

You still haven't answered the question. I'll help you. Here's the question you've been running away from for more than two weeks now:

So, where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment while the real-time video was being watched in the White House, and the orders for the AC-130 to stand down were given, the support mission from Tripoli was ordered delayed, and the Force Recon unit in Sigonella that was moved to Sigonella for the explicit and sole purpose of responding to an attack on the embassy in Libya was ordered to stand down?

Where was Obama for these 7 hours?

The White House watched the entire battle as it was happening. Where was Obama when the White House watched the Americans get hung out to dry in Benghazi?

The senior order giver is the White House. The White House is watching the battle in real-time. The orders to abandon the Americans in Benghazi came from the White House.

Where was Obama when the White House ordered all support for the Americans being killed by Al Qaeda in Benghazi to stand down?

Where was you boy?

If he was doing his goddam job, he would be watching the video real-time with everyone else in the White House and giving the orders.

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment while the real-time video was being watched in the White House
Repubs. in Virginny are trying to undress the electoral college...

Your thoughts, sheep.

Or is that ok with you?
