We're so screwed. I am so depressed. I've actually lost faith ....... I can't believe that the majority of Americans are this stupid.

So where's my free stuff? I want my "fair share"!

Screwed as in more jobs created while unemployment continues to go down?

I can't believe it either. My grandfather always used to say "never underestimate the stupidity of people".

The nasty and negative politics of the Republicans and their hired thugs the Tea Party backfired! EPIC FAILURE.

Republicans are so nasty that they continue to call THE MAJORITY of Americans stupid for rejecting their message. The GOP is waking up this morning realizing that there has been an undeniable shift in the power structure of this country.

Asians voted primarily for Obama....as did Hispanics....as did Blacks....as did educated and middle/upper middle class Whites. Republicans have the poor White and Rich White votes....that is not representative of America. Wake up GOP....wake the hell up. Your old game doesn't work any longer.

This turned out to be a status quo election. I'd reconcile that neither side is happy with the results. A President who still faces the same deadlocked Congress he faced on November 5th. Who won? Not anyone that I can think of.

For the first time in the campaign! See below:

If that guy had shown up sooner, things might well have been different.

It's a shame that he felt the need to lower himself to appease people who believe the nonsense spewed above.
Maybe next time the GOP candidate will take a higher road.
Best post of thread!
