Just think of it as anti-hatred and anti-psycho crackpottery freely tossed out as an antidote to all the crazy conservo sour grapes.

You're confused.

I'm neither a Benghazi-bug nor in deep election denial. That would be your side.

How am I a hater, psycho, crackpot, or crazy?

How is this divisiveness going to help us move forward?

People have short memories. I remember after the 2004 election, Democrats sat around wondering how they could have lost, while the pundits were saying that if they didn't change their message, their party would be irrelevant for a generation. Then four years later, Obama gets elected. The pendulum always keeps swinging.

Malamute's point was that Obama lost a significant amount of support between 2012 and 2008. Bush gained a significant amount of support between 2000 and 2004. Also keep in mind that the 2004 election was much higher turnout than 2000, unlike 2012 when compared to 2008. Bush gained millions and millions of votes (10 million or so I believe) between his two elections. Obama lost millions and millions of votes between his two elections.
Not buying it. Romney got slightly less votes than McCain did in 2008 and obama got about 6,000,000 less (expect that to shrink a bit) than 2008. Why?

Hurricane Sandy cut millions of votes off the total. Nearly a million less for Obama just in NY, 500,000 less for Romney over McCain's total. 250,000 less for Obama in NJ, 250,000 less in Pa, 240,000 in Ohio, 80,000 in Conn, 30,000 in Maryland, etc.

Voter suppression efforts in GOP controlled states.

Four years of Muslim this, and Kenyan that.

Four years of the GOP choking off Obama's recovery policies and the resultant slow recovery.

Why did Romney do better that McCain? He didn't pick Sarah.

FYI, 20,000,000 more votes from 2000 to 2004, bush got a bump but so did Kerry, bush just got a little more.

Take that chip off your shoulder. What makes you think those were aimed at you personally?

Short answer: it certainly won't.

This divisiveness is VERY asymmetrical, by the way.

If the GOP doesn't lose the Tea Party, they will become extinct. Abraham Lincoln must be churning in his grave right about now.

The sad thing is that they think that it means that they are relevant.

The leftists will get a rude wake-up call in 2016 - when Obamaphoria wears off - and people pay attention to reality.

After four more years of President Obama - that reality will really bite.
I thought it was appropriate to bring this thread back, especially with the bolded comment.
