No, there were just no better choices... for many it was a matter of choosing between the lesser of two evils, so if Obama voters are "stupid and ignorant" so were the Romney voters. Oh yeah, and those who voted TWICE for Bush probably aren't all intellectual giants either.

We have our share of morons in this country, sure, but sadly they cross all political lines.

If the economy isn't a roaring success in 4 years the GOP will win the Whitehouse.

Barring any major scandal. Gore could not seem to win in 2000(or did he?) in large part I think because of Clintons affairs.

Before you make uninformed posts such as this, read mine at #26. I consider myself a conservative Democrat. I, like MANY people, just don't like Hillary. Neither does the poster in #27. It just goes to show how packaged and limited so many Americans are in their thinking: hate on a Democrat, then you must be a Republican ... hate on a Republican, then you must be a Democrat. Grow up, and wise up.

AMEN BROTHER!!!! how about we give it a rest for now, and see what happens over the next 10 or so months, and then deal with the 2014 elections? 2016 is a long way away, and it gets real tiring to deal with something where the possible candidates will change about 300 times before any kind of field is set, and even then the proverbial dark horse will likely emerge that NO ONE even thought about.

Why is it that when people are shown that the country has a differing opinion that everyone is and idiot, or that the country has gone to hell? Could it be that people have fond memories of the 1990s and would like to return to that era?

In comparison, the Republican field appears to be much more open.

All of this is said with the caveat that four years is a political eternity. And anyone who thinks they know with certainty who either of the 2016 nominees will be is a fool. The best we have now is to watch the indicative political posturing and to analyze historical trends that suggest future political developments.
I think that Hillary resigning from her present situation may well be an indication that she intends to spend the next 4 years campaigning. Obama did it for nearly his full term in office and it has become a thing that takes at least 4 years anymore.

Check out the video in this link to see what probably was the main reason Obama won the other day other than the fact that as many as 3 million Republicans stayed at home in protest of something.

Why else has Hillary suggested that she will join Geithner, Petraeus, and Holder in resigning their present jobs. Yep, only Petraeus has done it but the others have said they would.

There are many of those takers you mention. Just think of all those young women who have been paying for their own birth control all these years and what Santa Claus has promised for them. Think about all the college kids who spend their days in class listening to progressive professors carry on about communism.

Here is a link to a video of college students showing how much they know about the Obama program and how little they know about the government of the US of A. They are all takers because they think they can get their college paid for by Santa Claus Obama.
