Obama being re-elected just shows that the Democratic/Left-Wing hallmark of "divide and conquer" does work. Divide all of the people in America into classes, gender, race and tell them that the other is the enemy and that you are here to help them and it is a recipe for success (or disaster). Forget the fact that the government doesn't actually help, educate, or improve any of the demographics that they supposedly champion. It just doesn't happen. But that is the modern day left wing.

We can never expect a unified country ever again. The future now looks very very bleak for this country.

That is how people stay in power. People in power need enemies. Even Clinton had to go to war. I tis up to us whther to follow them or not. Americans need to get smarter.
This applies Republicans and Democrats.

Yes, convince the people through fear that their social programs will be ended if the other side gets elected.
A dependent people will keep those in power that provide the handouts.

Obama is like a kid who walks into a room full of adults and says "who farted ? it stinks in here. The room is Washington and the stink is politics as usual. It not divisive to admit the obvious.

Wonder how you are going to feel 4 years from now or even next year when tax armageddon hits but I am sure you are probably just as uninformed about that.

Well, is the house going to continue to fight to the brink and punish America based on principals that failed to win the executive office?
