Now the only give away, I see is the temporary status for illegals, which I am not enthralled with, but I can see why that would garner votes. Now Romney claims that the "giveaways" were for young, blacks and hispanics. Hmm, last time I checked young people were not the only ones using birth control, and it is not free. If you dont have health insurance, then you are still not getting birth control. And what did he give Blacks, because I missed that. Lets see, I have a high deductible insurance plan, which I never meet the deductible so basically we dont have insurance, and my taxes are going to increase, which I dont mind as long as everyone shares the pain.

So Mitt says, "“You can imagine for somebody making $25,000 or $30,000 or $35,000 a year, being told you’re now going to get free health care, particularly if you don’t have it, getting free health care worth, what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity — I mean, this is huge,” Mr. Romney said. Is he implying that only Blacks,young people and hispanics are in those income brackets??? And how can he say that, WHEN HE PIONEERED UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE AS A GOVERNOR!!! At last check, Obama won, Blacks, Latinos, Women, Asians,....why cant Romney just admit he lost. After Obama, knocked off the Clinton Machine, which no one believe would happen, Romney had 7 years to prepare. So this great businessman, had a 7 year timeline, for the mother of all projects, and he failed miserably. He really needs to take a look in the mirror. I mean really, Romney could have used his own money to fund a group of number crunchers...duh
Exit polls suggested that many voters saw the GOP as being too white, too male and too old. They really need to come out of denial-mode and start recognizing that America is moving on from their vision and that they need to change too.

He proves not only the old adage that pride goeth before a fall but also that the fall often blinds one to that fall's cause(s).
The fact that this man felt "entitled" and Ann felt it was "their turn now"....ugh! They just don't get it. I am so happy President Obama was re-elected. I don't ever want people like the Romneys running this country and I will do everything in my power to make sure it never happens. HILLARY 2016!!!!!

And defense contractors (actually $2 trillion more than the military was calling for). But I guess "free gifts" are perfectly ok as long as they go to the wealthy and to defense contractors. I guess it's only offensive if it's the 47% getting them.

What Op describes is what has happened i coutnries like greece and Spain. The basic parties are not much different. You won electio by promising more govern jobs and more benefits >basically that elad to huge nuber of workers;creating huge regualtio thatdestroyed the priavte sector.Most people see the key to security and wealth now has governamt job.Its relly no different than whaqt we have seen since the mid 60 started wealth sharing;less people capable of doigit otheir own or even the attiude of contribute not taking to genral good. Just look at the growth i special interest groups all vyig for special consideration.

You can count out the 2016 to Dems by the looks of Soooooo many dinasaurs within its ranks (gop), take for example this twit from Maine, he's the head of the republican party and he says

“nobody in town knows anyone who’s black,” but black voters came in to vote on election day"

There is a nasty stench of racism in the Republican party.

Since you rail against tax hikes on the wealthy, it sounds like your own taxes are due to go up.
So here it is: just pay what everybody else does and quit complaining!!

That's OK, though. Because the Dems are about to learn their lesson in economics. The hard way.
Here's why it was a big defeat:
* Repubs had big money, the media, the supreme court, dirty tricks - and none of it worked.
* Republican big money failed to buy an election - a repudiation of Citizens United.
* The trend of 2010 was reversed and dems gained seats in the congress.
* The country averted a further slide into republican fascism.
* Americans may at last be realizing the failure of republican trickle-down economics.

Seriously.
We keep hearing about all of the free stuff that the President promised but no one has given the least inkling as to what these are.
And, somehow, he still won the election.
Yes, you noticed the propaganda tactic. Never, ever, be specific on an issue because you can be pinned down on it. Use innuendo instead of specifics. So we get unspecified "gifts", "socialism", or anything Fox News says.

If Romney had won the wealthy would have benefited at the expense of the middle class.
Since Obama won the poor will benefit at the expense of the middle class.
Let's be realistic here, rich folks aren't going to feel the effects of a tax hike. They'll just raise prices on the goods and services their companies produce and sell to the American people in order to cover it.
The "rich folks" don't own businesses or control prices. They are mostly investors with their money as their "product".
