I'M happy with the results.



Clearly you don't have a CLUE what "our side" thinks.

What a great morning it is!! Who would have thought Nate Silver would correctly predict the electoral beat down that happened last night? /sarcasm

I see some of the resident pugs have poked their heads out from their holes.

In the words of Abraham Lincoln, "We ask not that God is on our side, but that we are on God's side". Now Lincoln was a Republican.

Congress needs more turnover. Not a believer in term limits, but campaign reform and federal funding of elections helps to stir the pot.
No one likes congress, but everyone likes their congressperson. It's the same with doctors, lawyers, etc.

Man I do feel bad for you.

You were absolutely certain that Nate Silvers predictions were flawed and that dems would be slitting their wrists this morning.

Really?
2004 and 2010 weren't examples enough for you?

I'm sure we'll find out shortly, it will soon be analyzed to death.

I suspect however there were alot of people who were not inspired by either candidate, since both had deep flaws.

Obviously the demographics did not favor Romney among who was left.
