One more thing, Shitt...We 47 percent also like firing people.
I'm so much prouder to be a part of the 47% Romney hated than the 47% that voted for him.
When you think how close we came to having that anti-gay, shape-shifting Mormon as POTUS... I just shudder.
I never knew how much I wanted Obama to be Pres. again- til he was. I almost cried.
It's official, Obama just won Florida. There had been three counties still to go, and the deadline ot count votes was noon today. It's just been called. Florida is fucking blue, baby.
It just shows that the American people, despite a disturbing and substantial ignorance, disengagement and prejudice, will not vote for a shifting, dishonest business shark who refuses to run on his record because, on the one hand it stinks, and on the other what does not stink is unacceptable to the maniacs controlling the Republican Party.
Good for America.
And in 2016 if Hillary runs she will win by a landslide.
Seriously, be careful out there. I think conservative bitterness over this election will remain for a long time, and something will happen with the extreme crazies (another Okla City?), and everyday rightwingers may be more into getting in the face of people they perceive as Dems - basically any non-white person, or a white person who doesn't look like People of Walmart.
That is still one heck of a lot of scary, anti-gay, bible thumping Americans.
Agree that 47 % of the voters voting for Romney is just chilling. Yeegads.
I agree that it mystifies me how things got so far.
His arrogance in his refusal to release his tax returns. His "businessman leadership" of Bain which destroyed American jobs. And his effortless, [italic][bold]constant[/italic][/bold] lying and flip-flopping should have been enough to wipe him off the map.
I was terrified that he would win and I just could not understand how others could support him.

I've been worrying about this too. Prominent Republicans have been talking about buying guns, revolution and seceding from the country. They sound treasonous to me. Frankly, I think it's a very dangerous time for the President and Democrats in general. I hope the Secret Service is being extra extra vigilant.
Yes, 47% is way way too high in my opinion. It should have been a landslide for Obama.
I can't help but think that the "real" Republicans sat out 2012, conceding it to Obama in advance. Seriously, look at the field of contenders Romney had to beat: Santorum, Gingrich, Cain, Bachmann, not a real power player in the bunch. Romney was like Dole.
They put up an old man because it was "his turn." Meanwhile the real contenders are cooling their heels for 2016. Speaking of which, I think Hillary will be a "her turn" token loser if the Democrats nominate her against an attractive younger male opponent like Rubio. Not saying I want that to happen, only that I think it will.
Hillary looks totally exhausted to me. Sadly, I don't think she's physically up to it.
Karl Rove is spinning in his grave.
I don't think she is, either, r17. And, honestly, I think the woman deserves a rest. She's been a one-woman show as SOS and I think she's done a lot more behind the scenes as SOS than she could as prez.
