In Minnesota, it is 48% yes, 48% no, and 4% ballots blank (blank ballots effectively count as no). 53% of precincts have reported.

However, I my point is not that you change the entire platform, just small tweaks. I say this because this is the actual changing point. This is just a numbers perspective. You will no longer have the numbers going forward to win nationally if you do not tweak your direction.
I can actually agree with some of this. Of all the Republican primary candidates, I actually agreed with Newt on immigration reform, of all people. His just seemed the most sensible. Personally, I'm not religious so all the religion stuff is kind of lost on me with the GOP as well.

I do wish we had a more dynamic candidate this time around and worried about that. Did I think Romney could have done a good job? Yes. But he obviously didn't have the right campaign strategy. I'm sure this will be studied ad nauseum but the GOP is here today dealing with our loss; Democrats have been in our position in the past. It's the nature of elections.

I'll ask you again... are you jealous that Romney is a successful businessman? Would you prefer he was poor?

Romney has conceded to Obama by phone. Done.

Question: Has Karl Rove conceded?

I guess congratulations are in order.

For 225 years or so, the USA really was the land of the free and the home of the brave, but that country that we all grew up in is gone: it is now in the same pantheon as ancient Greece and glorious Rome. Like very few countries in history, we have voted for our own demise and dictatorship.
I know the gleeful Obama voters that read this will just consider it to be sour grapes, and I suppose it is. Bitter? You bet.

I won't live long enough to see the totality of the gray, bleak future, but my kids will: they already owe tens of thousands in federal debt, and my grandchildren will suffer even more.

Remember all this country had accomplished and what it once meant to the world: The first modern democracy where the individual ruled, the country that sacrificed the lives of close to 700,000 citizens in a bloody civil war to right the wrong of slavery, the country that twice went to war to salvage the corrupt European political culture, that fought and won the cold war, that grew a prosperous middle class like had never been seen before.
All gone now: get ready for the new normal... My fellow citizens have decided that a pompous and inconsequential narcissist should have his four years of failure rewarded with four more years to accomplish his goal of destroying a once great nation.
What a sore loser! Want some fries with your crow?
