I feel so bad for our military people.

They are out there day after day "fighting the good fight" for a country full of idiots that don't deserve their sacrifices...

At least 5 out of the 6 proposals went the way they should have in the state. There is a sliver of faith left....

That's great and all, and I understand why the minorities voted for obama, and I understand why the life long welfare folks voted for obama, but what I want to know, which you didn't answer is how anyone with a job and a brain could vote for obama.....and poeple with jobs, and with brains, and with college educations DID vote for obama, and I can not understand how or why.

it's corny to say but a lot of military people died so your fellow students could cast a "he's a cool guy" ballot. to bad those deaths couldn't have done something for their intellectual skills.

We have all seen the effects of the Obama win, sad day
As soon as Obamacare kicks in and our taxes go up, living expences, gas, clothes and what ever else that can be taxed. Then we will see our nation become like poor country. The middle class will become smaller because of low paying jobs.
When Obama said that he would fundementally transform this nation I don't think most people understood what he meant.
I am so bummed.

another example of how twisted some voters are....

jesse jackson jr. has been on medical leave from congress and under psychiatric care for months. nevertheless, his wife's campaign consulting firms still gets checks for guiding his "campaign" and the bozo gets re-elected.

I believe the #1 reason is free shit. I include the unions in that category.

I have to go now, the bus is here to take me to the Federal Islamic ReEducation Center.

Why does it say GAZ under the Mack Bulldog?

Back on topic. Like Hitler, Obama controlled the media. The brownout/blackout by NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and HLN about Benghazi, Fast and Furious and Hurricane Sandy was well orchestrated. His masterpiece.

The Republicans will probably waste a year or so trying to impeach him for it. Of course, having our congressmen waste time on something other than spending money and writing new laws is actually a good thing.

The Dems had an amazing recipe with Obama.
Take a black unseasoned politician to lock in the vote of blacks and peak the interest of other minorities. Sprinkle in some DREAM act to secure the rest of the minority votes. Bailout unions to reassure and lock in union votes. Win the rest through pro choice, gay rights and especially those on government programs. Cover with a thick layer of liberal media and bake for 4 years.

Feeds 350 million Americans and many millions of unwanted south of the border guests.

The scary thing is, this recipe can easily be repeated.

I have never followed an election this closely before. it is very clear to me elections are won on emotions, not plans, facts, and figures.

I hope the GOP starts grooming a female candidate for 2016.

You think that's bad?

Quote of the morning during PT formation (Active Duty Army): "Thank God Obama won. This country won't go communist now."

A good third of our company voted Obama. Active. Duty. Army. Voting. For. Obama.

Not a single one of them knew what the hell they were talking about either when you ask them.

Looks like the stock market is letting Oblama know how they feel. Down 150 points already today.

Obama's victory speech included the line “Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward.”.

"the task of perfecting our union".... Well, I've seen his idea of a perfect union and it doesn't resemble the country as founded. He didn't lie about one thing 4 years ago, he's here to fundamentally change the United States, bring Her down to size. He has never liked America's super power status.

I'll be surprised if we make it another 2 years if the policies aren't changed. Gas prices are about to double; energy prices "will necessarily skyrocket"; food prices are headed in the same direction; we have enemies in positions of power; we will be seriously disarmed very soon; $16 trillion debt and counting.

If you want to try to understand how Obama thinks of America then you just need to read his books. There is no possible way he feels the same as most people, he was never raised here, as soon as he was born he was taken to another country, he didn't step foot on the mainland until he was 18. He grew up with anti-colonialists and communists teaching him so how can anyone think he could possibly feel the same about America as a kid growing up in everyday rural America attending 4th of July parades every year. No conspiracy theories, just facts from his own words.

I hear people all the time say "it won't happen to America". Why not? We took down one of the most powerful nations on earth, the USSR, by making them go bankrupt. Look at the EU, countries are dropping like flies due to their debt. It can happen to us.

I fear for my children's future, it looks very bleak. Very soon the "entitled" will rise up against the "providers" when the money dries up.

Sorry, felt like venting somewhere.
