What the 2012 election taught us

Nov 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

We've been scouring the data for clues as to what we should learn from what happened tonight as President Obama relatively easily claimed a second term.

You Liberal dont believe Reagan and his foreign policy had anything to do with that. Soviet Union was going to fall do to internal problems no matter what, sooner or later.
The Soviet Union was broke from the prolonged war in Afghanistan, and over spending for the military. Gorbachev did what few people with his power would do. He thought of the people. He knew the system was so corrupt it could not continue. He also knew although it would be very hard for the first years of the change in the end it would be best for the people. Interesting fact. While running for re-election Regan claimed he was the reason for the fall of the Soviet Union. After he won, he phoned Gorbachev, and apologized for saying he was the reason.

Treasury to buy votes? That's what all the losers say.
Etchy refused to show us his returns like ALL POTUS candidates have done. We refused to give Etchy our vote.
Quite simple, really.
Your President refuses to tell the truth about Benghazi, and you still voted for him.

Says more about you than about him, really.

Yes O voters are just truly stupid people, They never watch the news.
Watching the news could be why we elect such useless bufoons. The news confuses people who take it too literally. Sean Hannity is Rachel Madow. Charles Krauthammer is Chris Mathews. Rush Limbaugh is Bill Maher. FOX is MSNBC. They're all giving us the same biased reporting. You can't find a nonpartisan news outlet.

Mitt Romney has barely been seen in public since his not so gracious concession speech from a little over a week ago. When you think about it, I feel a little sorry for Mitt Romney. For the last two years, he's done nothing besides eat, drink and sleep presidential politics. He turned his whole life upside down so that he could run for president. As a matter fact, Mitt Romney spent more than just the last two years running for president. To be honest, Mitt Romney's been running for president for more than a decade. Remember, he ran for Senate in lost. I don't think he ran for Senate because he had some great desire to be a senator. He ran for Senate because he thought it be an excellent steppingstone to the presidency. He ran for governor of Massachusetts and won. He didn't want to be governor of the state of Massachusetts. Instead, he wanted to use it as a springboard into the White House. His plan almost worked.

Today, Mitt Romney stuck his head out of his multimillion dollar mansion just long enough to speak with donors.Mitt Romney could've been gracious. He could've thanked his donors for all their hard work. He could've been magnanimous.

Instead, Mitt Romney was a bowl of sour grapes. The reason that he lost, according to Mitt Romney, was because President Obama "focused on giving targeted groups a big gift." This is the same line of thinking that Bill O'Reilly displayed when he said 50% of Americans simply want stuff from the government.

Mitt Romney didn't lose because he had the nerve to say that illegal (undocumented) immigrants should self deport.(which may be the stupidest idea ever to be uttered by a presidential candidate) He didn't lose because he didn't support the Dream act. Mitt Romney did not lose the election because he alienated women by being completely unclear on multiple issues important to women. He didn't lose because he opposed Obama Care. Instead, he lost because the president appeal to people by offering to give them things. Sour grapes.

Mitt Romney lost the presidential campaign because he didn't understand electoral politics.

I suspect that he sitting around his mansion eating a bowl of sour grapes and spitting the seeds on the floor just so that he can watch the help pick them up. Poor Mitt and his sour grapes.

PS Mitt said on 'day one' he would create 12 million jobs, be can start this crusade by insuring his election staff all get jobs.

He cancelled their credit cards election night.

Funny listening to the liberals defending Obama. They abhor and deride religion at every turn yet offer up such blind faith to one who has continually deceived them.

Well your sense of truth only exist in an alternate reality. Given that Romney's neighbors didn't support him in the election, the question is why did you?

Oh well there's always next time...... by then Romney will be claiming to have converted to Islam and became a Muslim, he's changed everything else pandering for votes.

welfare recipients, food stamps recipients, and unemployment recipients should not be allowed to vote. Unless you are a contributing citizen, you should not vote. the moochers and leeches will only vote for whoever promises them more free shit, which gives us leaders like obama.
