So while there is still some votes out, this is what we do know for sure:

Obama secured over 300 electoral votes.

Obama is going to win the popular vote by more then 2 million votes.

In their most vulnerable year (most seats up), the Dems not only fended off the GOP, they picked up 2 seats. Almost three. Massive win for the Senate Dems.

The GOP does secure the house; the victory is marred with scars with the GOP losing several seats and major names such as Allen West and Mia Love not securing seats.

Social conservatism took a beating with several gay marriage and drug freedom wins.

There is no way you can slice it, this was a HORRIBLE night for the GOP. As one conservative blogger said, if you take in EVERYTHING (including demographics of the Dem vote) this is the best election night for the left in decades, possibly as far back as 1936 (oh look, the last president with a horrible economy).

The GOP better find its new soul within a year or 2014 may be rough again.

This much we know:

With 2012 nearing an end next month, President Obama is still in office.

When 2013 ends, he will still be in office.

When 2014 ends, he will still be in office.

When 2015 ends, he will still be in office.

When 2016 ends, he will still be in office.

The only real question is this: when will President Hillary Clinton appoint Barack Obama to be the new Chief Justice Of The United States Supreme Court?

My guess is 2017, but even if it has to wait until 2018 or 2019, I'll be fine with that!

There is becoming less and less reward for hard work, and more and more reward for sitting on your a** all day and smoking your legal pot. I don't care what party you are part of, everyone is feeling the effects of that situation. I don't want to see a liberal Supreme Court for obvious reasons. My concern for that is obviously very real as many current justices are very old and will be replaced within the next term. Appointing justices is one of the few true powers the President actually has. And gay marriage is bound to become a national issue within the next term. So in actuality, all of my points are quite valid. Also- I am not religious, but I appreciate your desperate attempt to assess me over the Internet.

And lastly, I'd like to remind you all of Albert Einstein's definition of insanity: "Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results."

Re-electing Obama is the epitome of insanity, therefore you all are in fact the crazy ones

Have a wonderful night!

You poor thing, you've had a hard time.

Get some sleep.

Oh, and Einstein never said that.

President Obama and team have been picking up the pieces ever since George Bush left office. Too bad Bush and Cheney can't be prosecuted for depraved indifference. Running two unfunded wars setting off a permanent burning cauldron in the Middle East and bankrupting the country. In civilian life, depraved indifference is a crime.

I don't understand what the problem with a US of Islam is, or what you think our country should do to stop it from happening. I also see no semblance of unity whatsoever in that region at the moment.

Obama's stimulus did help us. I don't like how he did it, but borrowing money for a short-term economic boost was the best thing he could have done.

Exactly what has Obama done to increase entitlements? I can't find anything. Obamacare doesn't count, there was already Medicaid.

Looking at how we are having absolutely no trouble borrowing money right now, bankruptcy is not a possibility for us anytime soon.

Re-electing a Republican would neatly fit your definition of insanity as well.

Fortunately there was no adequate competition among the GOP. What the party must realize is in order to survive, they must appeal to a broader base. With their nomination of Mr. Romney it showed two things:

1.) They don't understand the candidate with the highest net worth doesn't necessarily equal the highest approval among conservatives nor moderates.

2.) The party has lost interest in whom it serves and is becoming a tighter circle consisting of those with hard-core conservative principles.

These two simultaneously, sealed the election and official decline of the party itself. As 2016 approaches my one suggestion would be to find a way to appeal to various demographics while retreating to classical republican views on today's issues rather than tea party stances.

Oh, but gay marriage is legal.

Same guy who predicted a Romney landslide I'd bet ^^^
