Yeah, and you lied about who voted for which candidate in another thread to make your side look better....not a very conciliatory thing to do.

We do all need to work together and we need to stop trashing the other side. It's an unnecessary distraction that the cynic in me would say the people at the top want.

I did not lie about who voted for which candidate. Never mind - I take back all my credit.

What did you not do? Besides "not" running a negative campaign, besides "not" villifying Obama since the day he took office and "not" having the opportunity to counter Sandy and its effect.

The least I can hope is that y'all learned that it wasn't the brightest idea to vote on "hate Obama, just vote "R"" (and I saw plenty of signs saying just that couple of days before election in South-East Texas).

Threads like this give me a good chuckle.

Then I realize that the OP is serious about this.

Lol I predict this will never happen.

Although Obama resigning in shame over Benghazi is a possibility.

Yes you did:

You don't need us, anonymous internet poster ~ and we sure as hell don't need you.

You DO realize that probably over half the 'wealthy' that President Obama is threatening to tax - were people who voted for him. You do realize that, right?

If not - go back to your trailer and read some more.

Ringo, over half of the wealthy did not vote for Obama. He won because of the poor. Every income group under $50,000 voted for him, every one over voted for Romney. Romney won those with household incomes of more than $250,000 per year by 11. Click on "income" for a nice chart:

Exit Polls: Casting Ballots in 2012 - WSJ.com

And - surprise - Obama did the best among high school dropouts, while Romney won those with Bachelor's degrees. (Yes, Obama won those with advanced degrees.)

Shouldn't you go back to your trailer and read some more Ringo given that you said someone else needed to do so to learn facts that are simply wrong. Of course you didn't read to determine the facts, you just spouted hatred.

And I think actual data, Frozenyo, proves that Democrats/Obama voters are far more likely to be broke or work at places like Papa John's.

I would love to see responses to this from both of you, but I know I'll never get one from either of you yet you will both likely continue to spew this crap.
I admit it was inappropriate for me to tell you to suggest that you should go back to your trailer.

Pres. Obama was a very beatable incumbent with the poor economy on his shoulder, you guys failed to produce an alternative folks could get behind. You threw your lot in with the Ideologues, the Evangelicals, and the TP Birthers.... and I expect you to fling yourselves even farther Right at least one more time.

That's on you.

Next in the line of succession is Speaker John Boehner. He sees his opportunity and decides that he can be more effective continuing as Speaker then by being president, so he appoints Mitt Romney as his Vice President per the 25th Amendment - and then resigns.

Mitt Romney then becomes the 47th President of the United States (and 4th in two months) and appoints Paul Ryan as V.P.
me too me too

A Asteroid from space
We try to shoot it down, but a big piece hits the white house
that piece is so sharp, it kills the president. Another piece hits Biden
With all of congress and senate destroyed the vacationing in Flordia supreme court decides they should just appt someone
They appt. Romney, because he came in 2nd in the latest election
