I don't know if he was crying, but he knows something the average voter doesn't.

Election aside, it's going to get nasty....

Energy, healthcare and the banking sectors ranked among the hardest hit after Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney, whose policy positions favored those industries. Defense shares also plunged.

Investors worry that Washington is headed for a long and bitter debate over some $600 billion in spending cuts and tax increases due to kick in next year. Many fear certain changes could derail the economic recovery, with that perception behind the "fiscal cliff" nickname.

"Traders on the floor are thinking: 'Before the election, President Obama wasn't able to resolve the fiscal cliff, so what makes you think he's going to be able to do it after the election?' That's the big issue right now," said Todd Schoenberger, managing principal at the BlackBay Group in New York.

Watch PBS's The 30's (1990)- The Stock Market Crash of 1929 - it's enlightening.

Well let's sing him a little song to cheer him up a bit

No. Mitt will still have his millions while the morons that voted for the head moron will be jobless and maybe homeless. He's a smart man. He can take care of himself and his family.

I couldn't have said it any better. I don't feel sorry for Romney, I feel sorry for our nation.

Why?

He has lied so many times that the American people were constantly guessing who the real Mitt Romney was.

He attacked women.

He shot the gun before aiming by speaking so soon about the attack on the US Embassy abroad.

Have I mentioned that he has lied?

I just find it hypocritical of the Republican crying about Obama having no integrity in the Oval Office but they wanted to elect a liar.

No, he lied and changed positions more than any other candidate in recent history. If he ran as the person he was 10 years ago instead of trying to be a "severe conservative" which his track record proved he wasn't, and still lost, I might have felt sorry for him.

You're right. Romney lied repeatedly. The first real sign of his nonchalance towards lying was when his campaign put out an ad that took Obama quoting McCain, and put the words into Obama's mouth as his own. When he was called out for this, he dug in his heels. On the Jeep scare tactic, he dug in his heels. Perhaps he initially did misunderstand the Bloomberg article, but once it was clarified, did he offer a mea culpa? No way.

Those are but two examples of a whole campaign's worth of lies. Mitt couldn't even be honest about who he was running as.

Romney was shameless in this campaign. Good riddance.
