This was the craziest election of my lifetime. I really thought it should have been a slam-dunk for Mitt Romney going into this one. And I never felt so bad for the losing Presidential candidate.

Maybe America is changing into a different kind of society. Wow!

The GOP likes to ritualistically attack blacks, hispanics, women, gays, government workers and people who believe in science. After doing that they can't be surprised that the people they aggressively insult vote against them.

Change that around and the election is yours

After his 47% comment you thought it would be a slam dunk???? I'm shocked he got over 40%

Wake up. This election highlighted just how out of touch the GOP is with the rest of 2012 America. The formula of putting a rich old White man out to be the big leader is dead and gone.

When the GOP wakes up and recognizes that they can not continue to call hard working, tax paying Hispanics and Blacks "freeloaders" and saying these people who work 50, 60, 70 hrs a week want "entitlements" maybe then they will win the White House again. But the old rules no longer apply. And America agreed.

Then surely you're not even old enough to vote.

I kind of agree with you on that. But I also thought Romney steered clear of controversy on most of those issues. Plus, he's a moderate Republican and came off as more of a centrist on social issues.

Plus, I felt that the economy and jobs were the central issue of this election and Romney had more command, experience and vision in those areas.

Oh well, this election was very close in the popular vote. Frankly, I think Obama won because he was slicker than Romney.

Flip-Flop Romney is a sleazeball, probably the most vile politician to ever run for president in recent memory.

Has he ever had a consistent position on anything, other than wanting to be president?

Perhaps we can deport him to the Cayman Islands, so he can be closer to his daddy's money that he doesn't have to pay taxes on. Or perhaps France, where he fled the Vietnam draft (despite protesting IN FAVOR of the war when he was a college student.)

I'm curious -- why did you think it would be a slam dunk for Romney? We you one of those people in denial about the wave of state polling? No one with both feet in reality thought Romney would win.

America loves their bad boys alright. Look at the dating scene in America! A decent, hard-working regular guy can't get nowhere no more thanks to what the liberals, particularly liberal women, have done to our nation. I'm not suprised at this election result at all. America is falling into the bowels of hell, time to pack up and go.
