... extrajudicial killings and drone strikes against suspected terrorists who are within the borders of a country that we are not at war ith is "being nice to them?"

Oh, boy.

Sorry, but, no. A lot of people said the same thing in '08: that this was going to lead to a revolution because our soldiers would refuse to follow orders from him. Hasn't happened; isn't going to happen. Also, please explain to me how, exactly, bands of thousands and thousands of terrorists will suddenly be able to get into the US and overpower the millions of people who live here; the police forces; our military; etc. and turn the mainland US into a war zone. Totally impossible. Quit being so melodramatic.

If the company is out of business, it's because of management - nothing else. Obamacare has nothing to do with it as long as there is a desirable product and a market. This Obama-hate just knows no bounds.

I originally forecast the GOP to take the Senate and the House, but Obama keeps the White House. Then I switched to undecided for the White House and Democrats to keep the Senate, GOP keeps House.

I just can't believe nothing has changed, it's still 99% the same people from 2010. What does that mean? To me, that means the people are uncertain for the future, and decided to stay the course without trying anything new because it seems to have worked out ok since 2010.

I'd also like to take a moment and remind the hardcore Romney supporters on C-D. I told you Romney was not going to win PA .
I understand the reasoning behind the electoral college, but I think the Election should be left to popular vote. I mean, Obama reached 270 electoral votes and was declared the winner rather early in the evening even though Romney had the majority of the popular vote at the time.

But...I have been posting that Obama was going to win the day that the GOP chose Romney as the Republican candidate.

Uh, they are. The GOP is simply behind the times and if they do not get with it they will lose more in the future, too. Heck, even moderate Republicans did not win in Blue states where, at least two that I know of, moderate Democrats won in Red states. Obama won because he got the minority vote; Hispanics, blacks, something like 90% of Asians (who are the fastest growing minority group in the U.S.), gays, women (although women comprise the majority of our population), and so on. That might not be a surprise to most of you but when you fail to realize that Obama won with "little" votes from white males you fail to realize the changing attitudes in America. I know that freaks some of you out, but there is no way that the GOP will last much longer if they cannot become more attractive to minorities. If Romney remained the moderate that he really is, and selected a moderate running mate, he may have likely won. Look at the sheer number of Ron Paul supporters from within the GOP, not to mention the many jaded Democrats who voted for Obama in 2008. Paul would have got their votes, too. I'm not suggesting that Ron Paul would have won, but if the GOP listened to the younger members of its own Party they would have had a heck-of-a-lot of a better chance by selecting a more winnable candidate.

Okay You do realize that Europe, including powerful countries like England, France, and Germany have seen way more terrorists activity than the U.S., and, it's not like terrorists stayed out of the U.S. because of any particular President. It is simply easier to access Europe when they want to "strike at the West". Obama "being nice to terrorists" is not going to open the flood gates and if you honestly think so, then I dunno, move to Canada if you want to feel safe.

And Obama has a very long list of accomplishments.

I don't know if nearly half the voters were under the age of 30, but as I wrote above, the GOP needs to listen to its younger members if they want to continue into a viable future.

Well, I can. Our Nation's economy has been front page news for the last four years at the least. Seeing as how Obama could not do what no President could have done, magically fix the economy overnight, it is not surprising that slightly less than half the country voted for the business guy.
