Okay, I should have said "super majority", enough to give Democrats control of Congress, which is what the right-wing posters are claiming.

You are so right.
After four more years of the Obama administration, if there's a country left, it will most likely be clear sailing for the Republicans for the next few decades.

And I'll call you on that one, the dems caucus only had a 60 vote, filibuster proof, majority for 72 legislative days over four months.

No, I am simply saying, good or bad, it isn't the greatest thing that ever happened. If Romney had been elected I doubt anyone would have made such a dippy statement as "this is the greatest moment in our history" the remark is just plain diggy.

By America not voting for Mitt Romney signifies, IMO, the death knell of the Reagan (counter) revolution!

Republicans are done for at least a generation, as political capital goes!

I didn't vote for Mitt Romney and wouldn't unless he and I were the only two people eligible to run (I wouldn't want the job), so obviously I'm no fan.

But if some tiny little part of you truly believes that this is the greatest thing that has ever happened to America, I suggest you put your little game of sports fan politics on hold for a little while and work on getting a life.

Yes, because there are so many similarities between Reagan and Romney. Wait; no, sorry, it's Obama and Romney who are similar. My mistake.

Wouldn't it be great if people cared about what was best for the country rather than what political party was in charge? News flash: Both parties care more about maintaining control than fixing what's wrong with our country. Lesser of two evils is still evil and all that. But I'm sure you don't care, you've picked your team and you're sticking with them.

Well, when you systematically over many decades bankrupt the people whose votes you want, the outcome shouldn't be a surprise.

At this point in time, yes.

We can only hope. Those most worst off are the least consistent voters. Some of these GOP governors need to be voted out. Starting here, in WI. We'll see if turnout is sufficient to do it. As our resident pollster at Marquette Univ. has said, WI has 7% who like Barack Obama and Governor Walker. I'm not so sure about the Walker part - we'll find out. He was retained primarily because of voter anathema to recalls.

I'm hoping the populous finally gets it, one can only hope.

The best part of willard being defeated is that his 'ol lady said that willard is finished with politics, but she could have fooled me, because he's still out there making stupid statements and sticking his foot in his mouth, so, I'll believe it when willard melds back into his rich basket.

Well, maybe not. I saw something on the web that he (willard) & GOP are working on a immigrations bill.
