Isn't it funny?

Those who mock the christers have themselves turned this Obama character into a semi-diety themselves! Is this a natural preponderance of the human mind, to create a god where none exists? Such idolatry for a mere man, a man who figureheads at best and is incompetant at least. If Romney were christian, would he have won? Were people afraid that Kolob would lay claim to earth if he had 'won'?

Neither of these two bozos are messianic & too human to make something out of nothings when it comes to pitting these two 'titanic (pun quite intended) personalities' in the arena, marshalling their grand moral forces in opposition to each other.

It is as if America has found itself in some trite morality tale and can't leave the spectacle on the stage.

Taxes will be going up - and spending down. It wouldn't have been a good idea to cut spending when we were ALREADY hemorrhaging jobs - and Obama didn't spend "twice as fast" as Bush. A HUGE part of the increase in the deficit was simply due to the decrease in tax revenue because of the 2008 economic collapse.

You are being way too rational. You gotta have faith in the birther mantra. You see, Kenyan muslim communists wipe with $1000 bills, and when you put a whole family of them in the White House, money just goes swirling down the drain........ in the "Oval Office."

We see some proof of that in extravagant Spanish vacations & $500 casual shoes @ homeless charity seminars...

African Americans are only 13% of the TOTAL electorate. They voted however they wanted to vote whether you like it or not. Yes, that is democracy.

Apparently half of this country wants those to be things of the past, as they already are and to stay there.

The problem is we are not moving "forward" in many ways. The national debt is one example. And over 45 million Americans in poverty (an increase of over 6 million) is not "moving forward." Neither is the fact that a record number of Americans are receiving food stamps.
The election is over. Give it up already.

I'd missed that post; thank you! Clearly the message conveyed in the quote flew over the poster's head at warp speed.
