Anyone who thinks Obama will deliver us from evil and make the middle class rise up again are deluding themselves just as much as the people who think the GOP will save all of us

It's the greatest thing that happened to the politics forum. Well funniest at least.

I didn't vote for Obama, but the look on the faces of stunned Romney supporters was priceless. The 10 best comedians of all time couldn't make me laugh harder.

I've gotten responses before criticizing me that Obama is going to win the White House. I don't watch Fox or listen to Limbaugh as my only news sources, but the picture was not how Fox was painting it. The sky is not going to fall as they kept pushing that meme

Sorry, I'm going to call you on this one, the Democrats did have the majority for two years:

House of Representatives Map - Election Results 2008 - The New York Times

Senate Big Board - Election Results 2008 - The New York Times

By Mitt Romney not being elected has to be the greatest thing, IMHO, that has ever happened to America. I think it shows that the general populace is finally getting it. Also, in all this, i predict there will be a new era of "unionism" but with far-reaching implications.

That's all....good day and thank you Lord sweet baby Jesus!


comedy, I like it.

stupid comedy, but comedy none-the-less...

So are you discounting the congressional timeline as well?

Default Gordon Gekko insulted

Calling Pomney a "Gordon Gekko" clone insults the GG community. Romney is far more manipulative and bound by greed than the Gekkoites can imagine.

It was too close by America still has a chance.

Obama lover or not: Romney hater or not, how anyone could possibly say "Romney losing" was the greatest thing that ever happened to America is really a far fetch comment. Many things,much greater than Nov 6th have happened to our country...
