Four More – Barack Obama Re-Elected President

November 7, 2012

President Barack Obama defeated his Republican challenger Mitt Romney Tuesday to win a second and final term in office.

Romney conceded the long, hard fought 2012 campaign in a speech before a crowd of disappointed supporters in Boston, Massachusetts, the state he once governed.  Standing alone on the podium, he congratulated Obama on his election victory, saying “this is a time a great challenge for our nation, and I pray the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”

Romney also praised his vice presidential running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, calling him “the best choice I’ve ever made” next to marrying his wife Ann.

Supporters at the president’s campaign headquarters in Chicago waved flags and cheered at the news, which came after Obama won enough states to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to clinch the election.

“We are an American family, we rise and fall together as one nation, as one people,” Obama said during his victory speech early Wednesday morning. “For the United States of America, the best is yet to come.”

Obama’s campaign staff Tweeted “Four more years,” and included a picture (left) of the president hugging his wife, Michelle Obama.  The Empire State Building in New York lit its light atop the iconic building blue, the color of the Democratic Party.

    “@Jimbo Don’t you go converting to Islam. It took you over 50 years to find your roots. Don’t just throw your faith out the window. ”

    If he isn’t really a Christian, there is no faith to throw out.

    @Jimbo Don’t you go converting to Islam. It took you over 50 years to find your roots. Don’t just throw your faith out the window. I know that our southern accents may draw a few hushed giggles from some and a roll of the eyes from the Rav, still we are who and what we are. Nothing can change that. I don’t think that sixteen trillon dollar deficit is going to slow an intellegent industrious man such as yourself. I bet my family’s seat that you will prosper. The diaspora may have left us on a pine woods backroad Jimbo, but it did not leave us ignorant and in the darkness. Hold on till 2016.

    Every republican who voted for Romney is whining about the deficit. The majority has reelected Obama because of his views on the budget. I am one that voted for Obama and his tax plan with the majority vote. If the same problems persist with the house as in the past 2 years I support Obama in vetoing any bill that doesn’t include increasing tax on people making over 250,000.00 that’s why I voted for Obama. This is not a tax increase this is a collection of tax that should have been collected for the past 8 or more years. This is one reason that the US is having these financial problems. If he rolls over for the “red dog” house members then he looses his support. Let us fall off that cliff the see how all those making over 250,000.00 do. I bet they want do so good. Neither will you.

    What part of 16 TRILLON do you people not understand? We owe the Chineses and other countries, we are maxed out on the Credit Card!!!! How can we provide all that people are asking for. When the goverment can only pay the interest now, our credit rating has dropped, its AA now and dropping. When the gov. can’t pay the bills and the cks stop coming or reduced maybe you’ll can see the picture. Check out Greece’s roits in the streets NOW, they are broke. We are killing the goose that layes the Golden Eggs. Wake up U.S. and take off the rose colored glasses, you can see the Reading on the Wall, if you look….

    “We are the only wealthy and modern country in the world who doesn’t afford EVERY citizen the opportunity for healthcare. In fact, most countries provide health care free of charge to its citizens.”

    Actually, we DO afford every citizen the opportunity for health care.

    We allow all of them to pay for it.
    We allow all of them to buy insurance to pay for it.
    Some take jobs which help in paying for health care.
    We even provide it free of charge to the ones served at health clinics and Emergency Rooms. (Well, they bill but don’t always get paid.)

    Of course, it will never be free as long as those providing it wish to eat, buy clothes, live in homes, wear shoes. The doctors, nurses, janitors, clerks, medical suppliers all want to be paid something. If they didn’t, they would starve, freeze or succumb some other way.

    So somebody HAS to pay for it.

    It can be paid for by the user or by someone else. What you probably want is for it to be paid for by the taxpayer in general. Even if that were to happen, there would be some limitations on health care provided. There might not be enough doctors and nurses unless they were paid well enough. Even if they were well paid, there might not be enough if enough got sick enough.

    Someone will always decide how to limit the amount of health care provided.

    One more comment……….What in the world is wrong with every American having affordable healthcare? We are the only wealthy and modern country in the world who doesn’t afford EVERY citizen the opportunity for healthcare. In fact, most countries provide health care free of charge to its citizens. What in the world are we thinking when we are criticizing a PRESIDENT for trying to ensure that every American Citizen has adequate healthcare? We shouldn’t be a country of have’s and have nots! We should applaud the citizens who have found prosperity and help those who haven’t been as fortunate. We should also try and implement programs to help those less fortunate find there way to prosperity. Quit hating and being selfish. Rise up and help each other so that we can all achieve greatness!!!

  7. worker on November 9th, 2012 8:48 am

    You voted for Obama – you get what you deserve –

    No freedom to do with your hard earned money what you wish to do.
    We are enslaved to this country now.

    It seems we have more people who depend on government than work.

    You should not be able to vote unless you hold down a job.

    You should not be able to vote if you depend on government.

    You should not be able to steal from one so you don’t have to work.

    Make the lazy people WORK.

    Many people who claim “disabled” COULD work in some fashion or another to bring in income.

    Many single women, who have been burnt by divorced, or who never got married and had children out of wedlock DEPEND on the government to replace their husbands. This is wrong!



  8. Marie on November 9th, 2012 8:44 am

    Oh well, everything happens for a reason. I guess we will just wait and see what the next four years will be like.

  9. David Huie Green on November 9th, 2012 5:40 am

    ” why in 1981 did he go to Pakistan ”

    There’s only one reason to go to Pakistan?

    Let me guess, he was looking to score some opium?
    checking out the hot babes?
    slipping in nuclear secrets?
    trying to buy cheap shirts?
    was secretly trying to help nieghboring Afghanistan drive out the Commies?

    You tell us, why did he go???????

  10. Betty H on November 9th, 2012 3:26 am

    He will have to stop the blame Bush crap now..He had control the last 4 years and it’s all on him now..I am quite honestly…afraid for our nations future.

    My life is much better than it was four years ago because I have grown closer to God. I don’t sweat the small stuff and it is wonderful just to be alive. Is that intelligent enough for you?

  12. Marie on November 8th, 2012 11:04 pm

    You Obama voters he has you all fooled. He is the wolf in sheeps clothes, I have read many things about this man and why in 1981 did he go to Pakistan . Do you really think he gives a damn about you or anyone else. Yes God please Bless Us.

    What part of “The rich get richer, and the poor get pooer.” do the 47% not get? The smart people will always do better and the ignorant won’t. Who do you think was Barry’s biggest donors? Sheesh! :-/

  14. Lu on November 8th, 2012 8:15 pm

    PEOPLE, the rich didn’t get rich by making bad finincial decisions with there money!!!! They own big busineses, they produce what we purchase. Do you think that they are going to lose money? NO NO They will only raise the rates, they will hire the lawyers and the accountants to find the loop holes so they will not have to pay the NEW TAX INCREASES . It will be passed too!! You cannot take there money they’re not stupid!!!!! When this country goes down they will have the forsight to have moved there money to other country’s banks (I will bet you this, the number of Swiss Bank accounts shot up on Nov. 7) and there families to safe places. The rest of us will be left with the stupid people that can’t plan or save for a rainy day (Living pay ck to pay ck).

  15. Mel on November 8th, 2012 7:07 pm

    It amazes me that someone can actually sound intelligent then have a zinger at the end of a post that totally takes away their credibility and yet they still manage to call themselves a Christian. I just keep telling myself that we should not judge others because god knows the truth. Lets be honest if Obama had to run on his achievements he would have lost. Four years isn’t snapping your fingers but in that time he should have made a difference. I wish him the best and it is time he started earning his pay and his title.
    FYI …People that have mortgages and credit cards are normal. The country needs us to function. Its called being an adult. We pay our bills and don’t wait for a handout. We are living on our own incomes and we don’t get food stamps or EBT cards and yet we seem to make it. We are not rich. We are middle income families. It’s amazing what someone can accomplish when they set goals and live within their means. I hope Obama has goals because we as a nation need to see progress, not excuses or incompetence. God bless America

  16. Bob on November 8th, 2012 5:48 pm

    I listened to some of your Republican talk host today and determined that if your single white woman your worried about loosing your birth control is the reason you voted for Obama, if your an atheist you voted for Obama, if your Hispanic or other than white married female or male you voted for Obama, if your 18 to 24 you voted for Obama and not smart or educated enough to make an informed decision. If your old and liberal your soft in the head and voted for Obama. And all the issues that these people have are based on ethnic views not political views is the reason for there vote. Is that not the dumbest reasons you’ve ever herd two days after the election. These “Republicans” are doing the same. These republican people are dumb enough not to listen to the will of the majority vote and continue doing the same as the last two years. This is truly a sad time for the US.

  17. Eyes on God on November 8th, 2012 2:42 pm

    I know, personally, a number of Mormans…none of whom have more than one spouse~religion is simply the ” title over the door “, but it’s the good, moral, family and God-fearing values that come from the heart of the individual that matters and makes a difference. I’m not Morman, but I do believe in God and try to live a Christ-like life.. if others choose to leave Him out of every part of their life, that’s their choice and they will one day have to answer to Him…not me. But what I don’t like is when non believers try to force us believers to shut Him out of everything. My thoughts~ you don’t have to pray in school, at a ball game or ask a blessing before or after a meal…just don’t say I can’t!!! If you don’t want to hear it, walk away. If you don’t want to see me asking a blessing~look the other way. Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil~pointless!!! Saying all of that to say…NO, I’m not pleased with the results, but, maybe God ‘allowed’ these people who wanted “4 more years” of him to get what they asked for and when it gets bad enough, maybe they’ll turn to Him …II Chronicles 7:14. And no matter who is the president…Jesus is still KING!!!

    ” Millionaire cry babies should be taxed for using government money and half of them are just there to get rich not make things any better. ”

    Proof please.

    Prove they are cry babies.
    Prove they should be taxed more than they are already.
    Prove they are using government money.
    Prove half are there to get rich.
    Prove the other half are there to make things better.

    Or don’t prove it, just accuse

    David wondering

  19. Who Cares on November 8th, 2012 11:57 am

    I would also say, if we’re crying over who we voted for, maybe we should be a third world country and not have the freedom to make our own decisions b/c meme your last statement has it written all over it.

  20. FORWARD!! on November 8th, 2012 11:27 am

    I voted for Obama and I am a christian!! Don’t like it, get over it!! It’s funny to me that all yall can do is put blame somewhere. The president can not just wake up in the morning snap his fingers and make things better. None of our presidents can do that. Don’t forget that we have a house full of Republican Representatives that are terrified of being taxed. Millionaire cry babies should be taxed for using government money and half of them are just there to get rich not make things any better.

    The United States of America is falling apart not because of our president but because of us. We no longer care for each other, families or love all together. We no longer give a helping hand to those in need or homeless. We as a people are killing each other and are children are growing up around all this anger and blaming. It’s our fault for the way people are today and its sad. If the world is coming to an end it is because of us not are president. God helped the poor, he didn’t help the kings who treated their people badly.

    It is going to take more than one president to get this country back to being the best…. It’s going to take all of the American people to get this country back together.

    On a side note…. When will Romney be showing us his 6 other wives?? I’m sure that is one of his many morman secrets. Hahaha!!

  21. Mike on November 8th, 2012 10:47 am

    Get use to being on the losing side of elections Republicans because your standard practice of marginalizing groups that don’t look or act like you is coming to an end.

    Its amusing listening to Fox News & talk radio how they have a totally different reality about every single news story out there and the sad thing is so many of you bought into it so deeply and believe them religiously.

    I bet a WHOLE lot of you believed them when their polling was different from other groups as well and said Romney would win in a landslide . . . . surprise! They were wrong with the polls and they’re wrong with everything else they say every day . . . . step away from the kool aid! :-)

  22. Bob on November 8th, 2012 10:32 am

    Isn’t it great that there is enough democratic votes in escambia county to make Obama ahead in the popular total vote for the state of Florida as of now.
    Obama. 4173275 state total
    Romney 4120075 state total
    53200 Obama favored
    Escambia for Obama 57999 votes
    Good job democrats.

    Get over it!!!!! Mr. Barack Obama is your president. 4 more years he has so stop complaining. And that’s Mr. President

  25. mnon on November 8th, 2012 6:59 am

    Using some math and statistically speaking there are a lot of whacko’s around here! You guys seriously have no clue and are completely out of touch with reality. Those of you complaining about having to work and still eating generic etc. you are just living way above your means and want to complain, I bet you have a mortgage on your house, or a second mortgage too? Probably a few credit cards you have almost maxed out, or in the least with a high APR. All your money goes to paying off credit card debts, loans, and mortgages to have what you have better than your neighbors and complain because neighbors can manage. Perception is a powerful thing, to people on the outside looking in some people seem to have it made. In reality they are struggling just like everyone else. You guys tend to think Obama is the antichrist, guess what there has been Presidents who have done worse. George W Bush Jr was one of the worse presidents in the past 40 years! Clinton wasn’t any better! This has all snowballed since the Reagan administration in the early 80’s and guess what we are all still here to complain. We survived the Cuban missile crisis, cold war, desert storm, etc. etc. We will survive 4 more years with Obama, and next time we vote, guess what most of you will be right back here complaining about who gets voted in like it is the end of the world too. If you don’t like it move to another country!

    Our government has created a social program that rewards those who do not…no, those who will not work. That demographic grows and grows each day, week, month, year…mr. Obama is Santa Claus…it’s Christmas every month for you and yours…why work, when it can and will be given…phones, homes, food…that group must be proud!

    Merry Christmas!!!!

  30. Mark T on November 7th, 2012 8:41 pm

    I thank God Almighty that there was enough voters in this Country with the good sense not to vote for that mega rich elitist fraud called Romney.. All you doomsday
    prognosticators need to take a deep breath and research what the Republican
    plan really is for the middle class and poor in this Country! Direct your anger
    to where it belongs, and that is your bought out Congress by the all powerful mega
    rich in this Country and abroad!!! All your Party wanted was a President with
    enough working digits in their hand to sigh the bills put before him…

  31. Russ on November 7th, 2012 8:21 pm

    You can blame it on Bush whatever. But Obama made this mess so give him 4 more years to clean it up.

    Tamara, I have a great Idea, let all of the Mexicans come over here, and be one big happy family here with all of the liberals.and all of us hard working Americans go to mexico and take our hard earned money with us,but then we would have to watch out for the new americanswho decide they want to come back to Mexico.
    So,why don’t we move to Mexico I believe they would have the room.

  33. WORRIED RESIDENT on November 7th, 2012 7:13 pm

    Those of you who are on here calling President Obama a muslim must not have had a rumor go around on you, which was a LIE! I believe this, because you have grabbed on to the LIE about him so easily. If you really THINK he said he is muslim, you must have been listening to FOX News’ altered sound bytes!

    I am truly amazed! Most of the people who are on this site, are working class citizens. Some of you are on here talking negativly, but if you had voted Romney in, it would be just like Gov. Scott! You would have buyer’s remorse!

  34. All41 on November 7th, 2012 7:05 pm

    Congratulations to all who voted for this wonderful President. I woke up elated. Life doesn’t get any better. Now for the cry babies who lost. Think about the decisions made in 2001. You wanted a war monger as president, and now we continue to pay dues. One billion dollars a week x 10 years could have funded schools and infrastructure. All of you anti O’Bama cry babies suck it up!!! It is not surprising that Romney was pounding his chest about dealing with Iran. Romney never served his grandfather or father. What about his five sons. When are people going to stop voting against their own interest?


  35. bmr on November 7th, 2012 6:58 pm

    God will use this man to bring judgement upon a country that has rejected him, electing Godless immoral representatives! 47 million receiving Food stamps and free stuff drove this election-but soon very soon, even a loaf of bread will be a luxury in America! This is the time just before the wrath of God! Read your bibles and repent while you can! There is only one way out of this- he is the King of Kings and every knee will bow!! Maranatha! You have been duped, this man has mocked God at every turn and turned his back on Israel!!!

  38. Dollars not Change on November 7th, 2012 6:28 pm

    in response to “Century”. Yeah. God did this for a reason. Just like when he takes his hand off of us and lets the devil attack us to teach us a lesson. Seems in this case, He took his hand off of our country and is trying to let us know we need to let him back in (and I mean the ALMIGHTY. I bet after these next 4 years, at least a few SMART people will realize what has been done. I just hope that there will still be time after that, for our country to even have a chance to recover. GOD PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON US AS A COUNTRY.

  39. Pathetic on November 7th, 2012 6:00 pm

    I don’t think taxes need to be raised at all! What needs to happen is all these people that don’t work that depend on food stamps, welfare, and any other government aids needs to get out and find a job!! They don’t even try!! This will save those of us that DO work a tax hike n those that are too sorry to work can pay taxes!!

    Here is a little story for you!! I was at the casino the other night (and yes I do work and pay all my own bills) and this older lady asked me to help her with her debit card getting cash out of the ATM!! So being the nice person that I am I said sure!! The card she gave me did not have any money left on it n she said “WAIT TRY MY OTHER FOODSTAMP CARD”!!!! I was outraged!! Those of us that don’t depend on government help doesnt realize the yep these people don’t have to buy food anymore with their foodstamp money!! They can get cash out of an ATM!! My friend told me that that was why the casino is packed out at the first of the month!!

    What an awesome government we have!! Yea right!!

  40. tc on November 7th, 2012 5:40 pm

    Also, another argument that I find invalid that was made during the debates and I see it here to.

    Food stamps/WIC, etc.

    We just came out of the greatest recession since the Great Depression. A lot of people became unemployed and were plunged into poverty. Why is it so hard to see why this would CAUSE more people to seek these government assistance programs. It makes sense to me, its not anything that Obama did, when people are in peril they look for help.

    I used to work in a grocery store. Yes I have seen the system abused. They do need tighter regulations on what tax dollars are spent on for these programs. So I definitely agree on that point.

  42. Stanley on November 7th, 2012 5:09 pm

    @ JC Lewis……Your right!!!! People did say the country was going to hell in 2008 and unless your living in a box or under a rock then it’s pretty obvious our country is headed to hell faster than it ever has. How can people put someone back into office who ran on a campaign in 2008 that he would cut the deficit in half and as of today he’s actually adding more during his term than any other president in history. That’s fine….have your time now to smile and pretend everything is fine…..but I bet you want be saying that when 2016 rolls around when the economy has tanked. I see Wall Street thinks highly of Obama. The market fell 313 points today. Largest drop in a year. I actually have family that work as investors in NY and they were hoping Obama would be voted out. The market and investors have no confidence in him or his administration. Back to 4 more years of crap.

  43. Obama Supporter on November 7th, 2012 5:08 pm

    So glad he was re-elected………..don’t care what you haters have to say about him…………he still the best!!!

    Let’s hear it for all of the doom and gloom prognosticators! They predicted the same thing back in 2008, that our nation was on the way to hell in a hand basket.

    Now! Back to our regularly scheduled program of doom and gloom.

    @robert, Umm … got some news for you, are you sitting down? (yea, unless you are walking with your Ipad, might want to stop a moment).

    COLIN POWELL SUPPORTED PRES.OBAMA!!! Both in 2008 and this time. That means that he supports a guy that YOU didn’t want to vote for. IF he ran for office himself, don’t you think he would be the same or nearly enough the same?

    And @tc, the scenerio that you describe is exactly what will happen. Thank you.

    its funny to me that you can get more individual votes but still lose and its not about white black hispanic or anything of that nature im white and proud but if Colin Powell went for president i would deff vote for him i didnt vote cause i didnt think either was a good canidate for president and i wasnt going to vote for someone just cause

  47. Freeloaders on November 7th, 2012 2:53 pm

    Well more EBT cards, free cell phones, WIC, etc. What makes me sick is people keep voting in politicians that support government programs. I’m all for programs to help those in need, but there should be restrictions on what you can and can’t buy. When my family has to eat “no name” brand foods compared to “name” brand foods then so should those receiving free foods thanks to my tax dollars. I’m paying for their groceries and mine. I don’t mind helping somebody with groceries, but they should have to buy “no name” brands instead of Heinz, Kraft, etc. Those brands are considered luxury not necessity. If you want better brand food…get out and work for it. If you want a cellphone…get out and work for it. I know our neighbor (husband, wife and two kids) have a brand new Ford SUV, talk on their iPhone, have Direct TV, go to the beach during summer and Alabama football games during the football season, but guess what….they receive WIC. This is what makes your average middle class family sick. Work your fingers to the bone to make ends meet just to watch people around you work less (or not at all) and enjoy more of life’s luxuries. If you want more in life such as TV, cellphone, internet, vacations, better quality food…..then get out and WORK…..but thanks to last nights election it will not happen for another four years….it will only increase. Fewer working and more sticking out their hands for a check. The dumbed down citiziens of America have slowly killed this country by being lazy and listening to charismatic individuals such as Obama. This reminds me how people were so amazed by Hitler. To have been such an evil person he fooled so many by his charistmatic sales pitches.

  48. tc on November 7th, 2012 2:22 pm

    Also, one other thing. For a true transition over to communism/socialism style goverment the president does not have enough power on his own to do that (for you people that seem to think he does), super majority control of both houses of Congress would have to fall to democrats. Also, majority of states would have to have majority control for democrats in their houses and senates. Then you initiate the process of repealing the 22nd amendment to keep Obama in office indefinitely. Additionally, he would have to keep the American populous happy to stay in office -or- offer up a few more Constitutional amendments to remove voting rights and remain in power.

    This is not even a remotely likely scenario when you really look at what it would take. 4 years guys, come on, its not the end of the world.

    @Mark, as I told someone else yesterday on another story, Al Gore Jr didn’t carry his home state in 2000 either. Tennessee voted for GWB in 2000. Look it up. Have a nice day.

  50. LEO GUY on November 7th, 2012 2:16 pm

    Bye bye American pie.

    This is not the beginning of the end, but it is the end of the beginning.

    It’s funny how the 47% on here are telling the 53%, alright now, let’s get back to work.

    What a joke! :-/

  51. tc on November 7th, 2012 2:15 pm

    I can’t believe how unpatriotic some people are just because their candidate didn’t win.

    Obviously, you think the United States of America is weak and fragile. Obama does not have absolute power. There is this thing called Congress, half of which is controlled by the opposing party. So do you really think anything radical is going to occur that would destroy the country?

    Really? Come on folks. America would prevail no matter who was President. I would be saying the same thing if Romney had won and I would be showing a lot more respect for the President of the United States than some people around here are. Its very disrespectful and very un-American. This is the system we have had in place since the country was founded. Just because your party didnt win, doesnt mean the majority of America are idiots.

    Before repeating terms they have heard on the news, some people need to look up the definitions of communist, socialist, etc before applying them to the United States of America.

  52. Bob on November 7th, 2012 1:42 pm

    All you people keep on doing the same the next 4 years as the last.
    Listen to the talking heads.
    Hide in your small rural community.
    Go to your small church and listen to the views like yours spew.
    Or stay on your small property with thoes keep out signs.
    Listen to your local radio broadcast that shout hate and discontent.
    Listen to your local tv station that want even make a comment about Florida is still undecided and never influenced the election outcome.
    Stay in your little local small unsociable world and watch it pass you up and leave you in the dust.

  53. Ethel on November 7th, 2012 1:38 pm

    Oops, I meant to say “with each DAY this regime is in place.” Still very upset.

  54. oh my on November 7th, 2012 1:23 pm

    O do I pray for our country
    If you voted for him you just opened Pandora’s box
    You have no idea what that man is capable of, it’s a very scary situation. And I will pray for this nation, because that is the only thing that’s gonna work right now .

  55. Calvin Cowpaddy on November 7th, 2012 1:20 pm

    On the comments about Obama not being Muslem because he eats bacon: his stepfather was an Indonesian “Muslem” , remember Obama saying in his book that they eat dogmeat and wanted to sample tiger meat. Their version of the Moslem religion mixes animism and mohamedism. Also,I thought that Obama’s preacher, the right reverand Wright was supposed to be a Church of Christ preacher, tho’ most of my Church of Christ friends don’t scream God damn America from the pulpit.

  56. Mike J. on November 7th, 2012 1:17 pm

    @Brian: I was waiting for that “landslide” word. Again another person who has not checked history. If you use the word “landslide” to describe this victory, then what word to you use to describe Ronald Reagan’s 1984 win over Walter Mondale. Reagan won 49 states to Mondale’s 1 and the DC. So what word do you use then huh Mr. Wordsmith? You can’t say landslide for this victory or any other that does not have over 40 states in the electoral college. And by the way, Richard Nixon’s 1972 victory was the same in states but slightly less in the electoral college votes because MN had a larger number than MA. Bill Clinton got 31 in 1996 vs Bob Dole’s 19 states. Waiting for that word, man! Have a nice day.

  57. Mark on November 7th, 2012 1:16 pm

    So Romney and Ryan could not even carry their own states! As a Michigan native, I know why Romney didn’t.

    Everyone is blaming those that voted for Obama. Why not blame your OWN party for failing to inspire the voting public to get out and vote for Romney!

    Obama killed in the electoral votes, and although it was slight, he even won the popular vote.

    Seems to me, (although I hate the two party system), the system still works.

  58. Doug on November 7th, 2012 1:09 pm

    David Huie Green… Man, just save it. Like that sore looser Donald (Mr Irrelevant) Trump, you can not tell these malcontents that Obama is not a Muslim – especially by explaining any of the reasons why he’s not. They don’t know enough about the Muslim religion or life style to comprehend what you are talking about. It is much easier for them to cling to that long disproven myth. The election is over, Obama won therefore the world is coming to an end… the Muslim thing is all they’ve got.

  59. Change?? on November 7th, 2012 1:06 pm

    For the last four years the US had so much CHANGE that the blinded, brainwashed and dumbdown citizens voted our CHANGE leader back into office. Can’t wait to see what CHANGE he brings now. What a joke…..obviously most fools that voted for him don’t own their own business. I guess that’s an understatement since most of his votes came from a majority of citiziens that suck off of the government – - -. More free hand outs please!!!!!1

  60. Doug on November 7th, 2012 12:59 pm

    “Wow…you mean the Rick Scott that is NOT SPENDING more than we take in, like he said he would…what a ridiculous concept.”

    Wow… I mean the Rick Scott that is NOT SPENDING more than we take in like he said he would… by cutting state jobs outside of Tallahassee (how convenient), trying to outsource the state prison system, immediately forcing state employees to pay more into their pension/retirement funds (go ahead and do it, but should they have some type of grace period or at least “grandfather” those with tenured years), cutting/redirecting research dollars, cutting funds for higher eductaion, and attempting to target teachers/education professionals with legislation that makes it near impossible for them to be successful. Yeah, lets balance the budget no matter what the cost… what a ridiculous concept!

  61. Cliff on November 7th, 2012 12:48 pm

  62. David Huie Green on November 7th, 2012 12:29 pm

    “and as to Mr.Green,Obama with his own voice said he was a muslim I heard him say it,it was on national T.V.”

    a muslim who eats bacon and goes to a Baptist church?
    (admittedly a peculiar preacher but not the only one out there)
    and wouldn’t he be in trouble for saying “God” rather than “Allah”?

    So confusing

  63. where's the teat? on November 7th, 2012 12:28 pm

    “For the record (and not that it matters), I voted for Obama after doing a basic risk assessment. Should I go with Romney and all the radical changes he spoke about – basically allowing the country to go in the direction that Rick Scott is taking Florida.”

    Wow…you mean the Rick Scott that is NOT SPENDING more than we take in, like he said he would…what a ridiculous concept.

  64. The DOER on November 7th, 2012 12:03 pm

    I don’t know how the people who voted for Hussein can even look at their children or grandchildren in the face! Right now, according to the CBO, every American child 18 and under currently owes $218,000 to our national debt. How in the world can this be paid off? We’re going under. Quit drinking the Kool Aid.

  65. Willie on November 7th, 2012 12:01 pm

    If Mitt Romney would have won… We would now be experiencing Violence, Riots, Destruction of Property and Bloodshed.

  68. Fed up on November 7th, 2012 11:43 am

    It’s obvious Obama supporters are in no way christians or understand basic economics. They also have no respect for our military or the victims at the embassy in Libya. They are the prime example of ignorance. Before you get on a tirade….this isn’t a racist statement. Using racism is just a copout and a way of avoiding an intelligent debate. Would one of you adoring fans could please tell me how your life is better than it was four years ago?
    This is your opportunity to make an intelligent statement. Good luck

  69. Northend Alumnus on November 7th, 2012 11:41 am

    Hate and ignorance is what will destroy our nation–Not the President!

    Like him or not. The fact is that he won. He is and will be the President of our nation for four more years. We have to continue to pray for our nation’s success and healing, and yes pray for our president as well. Our party (Replican) has to redefine itself to win in 2016. Our party has to somehow overcome the stigma that we are all anti-black, anti-female, anti-hispanic, anti-social programs, anti-public education, anti-unions, anti-women’s rights, etc.

    My friends say that our party is suppose to be a party with conservative Christian values. They say in the last few election, we have become the party of an angry mob of people that lie and cheat to get our way. There may be a little truth to that. Romney should have made sure that every commercial was 100% truthful before airing it. That’s how you win votes! Show them that you are honest. America had enough of lies with Bill Clinton and his sex scandal. Show us honesty and we will believe what you are saying about how you will change America.

  70. Jimbo on November 7th, 2012 11:28 am

    Regardless of the “scariness” as was stated, a 16 trillion dollar debt at nearly zero percent interest is alot more scary. All those who voted for Obama don’t have a clue about that, and furthermore, Obama did’nt once address the issue during his campaign. He’s not only the food stamp President, he’s the rug, and broom president as well.

  71. tamara on November 7th, 2012 10:55 am

    I am terrified! We might as well just get on government aid and join all the rest of the non working and illegal immigrants that are sucking off the government. 4 more years of heartache! How incredible sad and diappointing! Why stay with a President that has not helped or worked? What do you think hes going to do different now that he didnt do the last 4 years? He’ll just continue on the way he has been continuing. No hope for us.

  72. bmr on November 7th, 2012 10:44 am

    Ben, why does everyone blame Bush? the dem.’s had control over the senate and congress during his term and they voted all this trouble in, and Obama was one of them, so why is it Bush’s fault. We do not need the Federal gov. helping with healthcare, and what is wrong with us as legal abiding citizen,to have a gun, a gun is harmles,s it is when it becomes in contact with a lawless person is when it beccomes lethal.And what about Godly values what is wrong with them that we can not have prayer in schools,was not our Country founded upon Godly principles why are we as a country ashamed of our God?and as to Mr.Green,Obama with his own voice said he was a muslim I heard him say it,it was on national T.V.

  73. Doug on November 7th, 2012 10:41 am

    David Huie Green… great response to MeMe – definitely a classic.

  74. Henry on November 7th, 2012 10:39 am

    You whiners are the most UN-American people I’ve ever seen. President Obama is NOT going to drag down this great country. If the USA can survive two wars with Britain, a bloody civil war, a great depression, several Red scares, Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, Obama isn’t that great of a threat by comparison.

    Grow up, and in 2016 get a candidate that doesn’t lie and doesn’t practice fear-mongering among the “low-information” Fox News viewers.

  75. Mark on November 7th, 2012 10:34 am

    @Patriot said: “I don’t care if the president is black or white, or purple, for that matter”

    I’m sorry, but I have a huge problem with purple people! Somebody, please help them breathe!

  76. enoughalready on November 7th, 2012 10:34 am

    All I can say is for all the God-fearing people of this once great country to get on their knees and pray for Christ’s return because this is the ONLY thing that is going to save us now, also, we all better learn Chinese as a second language!

  77. David Huie Green on November 7th, 2012 10:33 am

    “Four more years of being lied to every time his lips and those of all other Democrats are moving.”

    I’m pretty sure Democrats don’t have a lock on it, just ask
    “Readmylipsnonewtaxes” Bush.
    And let’s be honest, his opponent did sometimes flip flop on the truth.

    “Abolition of religious freedom.”

    The only way to assure religious freedom is to keep government out of religions and he tends to do that.

    “Their guns confiscated.”

    How can you say they want to confiscate guns when they are selling them to drug cartels?

    “On-demand abortions.”

    If a woman wants to kill her kids, better she do it before they know what is happening to them.

    “Closer ties with the Muslim Brotherhood whose stated aim is to destroy the US and kill all of us.”

    Since he is the symbol of America, they can not be his friend. What’s more they’re still mad about him killing bin Laden and NOT killing the movie maker.

    “The unions and their extortion activities to flourish and control the labor force.”

    Unions are people too.

    “High rates of unemployment.”

    Well, that one’s right. On the other hand, that was how he got the job in the first place, conditions under GWB.

    “Coal mines shut down.”

    Coal’s nasty and dangerous.
    Far better to go with natural gas and nukes.

    “High gasoline prices”

    So gas prices went down because oil companies wanted him in so they could jack them back up?

    David for a better tomorrow

  78. Maggie on November 7th, 2012 10:31 am

    To the churches that hauled people to vote for Obama I hope god has mercy on you. You voted for someone because of his skin color not because of his “Christian beliefs” because he has none. Just in case someone hasn’t informed you that is “racist.” He has no compassion for lower class blacks. In fact he looks down on us.
    Now step back and look…… you have nothing. So I hope you all can look in the mirror because you failed. You failed your ancestors and your children.

  79. Screwed on November 7th, 2012 10:30 am

    What’s wrong with you people? You must be related and all have the same defective gene. Romney didn’t carry any of the states he ownes homes in. And Ryan didn’t carry the county he lives in. Don’t you think the citizens made the best decision since the people who knows them best didn’t vote for them.

  81. Just Me on November 7th, 2012 10:07 am

    Today is the first and only time I have ever been embarassed by my country. The lazy, simple minded and illegals helped to put this muslim back into office. God help us all!!

  82. AC on November 7th, 2012 10:07 am

    It gets old hearing people say your racist if you vote for Romney. That tc person is the perfect example. I’ve already provided my reasons for not voting for Obama, and not a single reason is because he’s black. He hasn’t done anything good for this country. Besides, Obama is half white and half black, so I don’t get where those statements are coming from. Although, I have heard of people voting for Obama ONLY because he happens to be African American, and to me that is racist. Especially when they can’t provide any logical reasons to back their vote for him. If you voted against Obama only because he’s black, then yes that would be racist, if you voted for Obama only because he’s black, yes that would be racist as well. I voted against Obama for several reasons and I am not a racist.

  83. MeMe on November 7th, 2012 10:01 am

    Well, There are some really DUMB people in this country ! Life as we once knew it is now fixing to be over !! I TRULY believe that he is going to make us a THIRD WORLD !! All of his votes came from young people, blacks ( who never voted until 4 years ago ) , hispanics, and people that just want something for free and want all of us hard working citizens to pay for them ! Its a sad sad day for my family and I . As far as OBAMA CARE .. Why should I have to pay for everybody else ? These young people and certain others that Im sure you all know who you are just want everything handed to you for free. It sickens me !

  84. brokeamerican on November 7th, 2012 9:57 am

    This is the way I look at it, I didn’t vote so I can’t complain. But in my opinion it was a lose lose situation. You are either going to be able eat and have insurance with no money or your going to have no insurance, no food and no money. I think they should put a southern woman in there and maybe things will get done like they need to be done.

  85. 429SCJ on November 7th, 2012 9:57 am

    I get tired of hearing all you people whinning about how America is divided and is going to fall, well if default and civil war is America’s destiny, then let the chips fall.

    You people need to put more time into preperation and less time complaining. If America falls, we will pull together, pick up our ruck, fall in and form ranks..

    It was a good contest gentlemen, congratulations President Obama, Vice President Biden. Good show Mr Romney and Ryan. Mr Paul you are a beacon and most relevant influence. Glad it is over, forward!

  86. just tired on November 7th, 2012 9:56 am

    Our President hasn’t caused the division in this country, it’s the citizens who have caused the division in this country. Whether or not people care to be honest about it, the problem most have with our President is his race, plain and simple. That is why they start all these maliscious rumors and accusations. They want to paint him to be this evil villian who is out to get America. Some of the things people say are so far out there, that I have to wonder are they for real! President Obama has been the most disrespected President ever and it is so sad for our country to have that kind of attitude toward our highest holder of office. It speaks volumes to the rest of the world about us as Americans. Like I said before I’m going to pray for our President and our country like I’ve always done and continue to live my life knowing who is truly in charge. (Proverbs 3:5-10)

  87. deltazelda on November 7th, 2012 9:52 am

    A majority of American voters just told BHO they want:
    Four more years of being lied to every time his lips and those of all other Democrats are moving.
    Abolition of religious freedom.
    Their guns confiscated.
    On-demand abortions.
    Closer ties with the Muslim Brotherhood whose stated aim is to destroy the US and kill all of us.
    The unions and their extortion activities to flourish and control the labor force.
    High rates of unemployment.
    Projects like the Keystone pipeline stopped, even though it would bring several thousand well-paying jobs.
    Coal mines shut down.
    Sky-rocketing electric costs.
    High gasoline prices
    Death panels, bureaucrats who decide whether Granny and Grandpa get life-saving medical treatment because it costs a lot, and they are already 80 years old.
    Him and his family to continue their very lavish lifestyle at the taxpayerwhile too many Americans are barely hanging on by their finger nails.
    Are these votes of people who have even a shred of human decency? I don’t think so. Yet it took votes of Christians to put him in both times. Meditate on your actions while you are warming a church pew next Sunday.

  88. David Huie Green on November 7th, 2012 9:45 am

    “I never dreamed I’d live to see the day that America would vote itself what I believe is a Communist president. A Muslim Communist president(I believe) at that. ”

    I’ve had far worse dreams than that.

    The problem is that you have decided to believe he is a communist and to believe he is a muslim, without any proof of either. But don’t worry, he can’t be both. Communists don’t believe in God but do believe in common property. Muslims believe in God (or Allah) but don’t believe in common property (they are the last group which still believes in slavery, but not communism; I don’t believe President Obama favors slavery.).

    Therefore, at least one of your worries is unfounded.

    David comforting the disappointed

    Yo Doug, instead of just saying that republican statements are nonsense, why don’t you provide some facts to go against them? Why did you vote for Obama? Besides the fact that he’s black…

  91. Doug on November 7th, 2012 9:35 am

    tc… Big time props to you!!! Your post is arguably the best input to any election related blog since the 2012 campaign season started. It highlights why the Republican Party failed to reclaim the presidency. If was giving out awards, like Obama/Biden you’d get my vote.

    To my Republican (both real and fake) counterparts… I love these ridiculous comments – please keep them coming. It’s become “par for the course” to hear this nonsense. Can some one please come up with something unique so we can keep laughing? Similar to Clint (Gallon of Old Grand Daddy Whiskey) Eastwood and Donald (Mr Irrelevant) Trump, you all sound like sore loosers. Stop blaming Obama for your problems. The fact of the matter is America and the world is changing and your prehistoric mentality and fingerpointing won’t do you or anyone else any good. I wish you the best, but based on your “end of the world glass half empty mentality” doubt you will ever move forward. Two words… Anger Management!!!

  92. AC on November 7th, 2012 9:28 am

    Yeah, its just fantastic that we put a president back in office who has added 6 trillion dollars to the deficit. A president who complained about Bush adding 4 trillion, but has since added 6 trillion! A president who neglects his own officers and ambassadors by denying them backup during a terrorist attack. A president who has established a socialist healthcare plan, one where you will have to make appointments months ahead of time. Yeah, that’s real helpful when you’re sick today… The country has also lost half a million production jobs to China since he’s been in office, which has allowed China to surpass us in the production industry. Oh, and for the first time in history, the quality of life is better in Canada than in the US! We are letting our country slip right through our fingers…

  93. Name (required) on November 7th, 2012 9:28 am

    I find it ironic that people have chosen this opportunity to sell their children and grandchildren into slavery by voting for this man….

    I suppose that they will blame bush when the national debt crushes the future generations and their children are starving….

    …. But at least they will all have free cell phones.

    A sad day for this country.

  94. Bob on November 7th, 2012 9:21 am

    It’s great we’ve elected a president that knows what we want thru our vote. Romney was the scarier of the two. Its happened throughout history the young look at it different than the elder people. All you people that don’t try to help the system as the majority have voted are going to have a miserable 4 years. A lot of you probably want be around for the next election. Try to help this country through positive actions instead of causing discourse in this country.

    The President is a bit of a figure head folks. The Congress is America’s real problem. The Congress created Obamacare. The Congress gets us deeper and deeper into debt. The Congress keeps the wars going. The Congress are the career politicians with no term limits who keep getting richer and richer and crazier and crazier. The Congress are immoral and narcissistic. And we the people keep on re-electing them. We had a chance to throw out a lot of incumbents this election and we did not. Nothing changes. No change and no hope. And it’s just what we deserve.

You all thought you were gonna get a check from the govt and guess what? YOU DIDN’T, but you voted him back in there again. I was disgusted by the states that used to be republican, but now are so full of persons of other nationatalities, that they are actually the major impactors of the votes. America has gone to the dogs, think I may check into moving to an island in another country…it couldn’t be much worse! I guess all of you Obama supporters think he has just done such a FINE job with our nation, that you want more of it….WELL, HAVE AT IT! WE WILL SEE WHO’S CRYING IN THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope our nation can make it through the next 4 years with falling opon our own sword of justice. .. in the Bible, Hebrews 13: 5-6 , Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” So we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not fear, What can man do to me…..In a speech given in Feb 1961, President John F Kennedy stated: This country was founded by men and women who were dedicated or came to be dedicated to two propositions: first, a strong religious conviction, and secondly a recognition that this conviction could flourish only under a system of freedom…..Let us go forth to lead this land that we love, joining in the prayer of General George Washington in 1783,”that God would have you in His holy protection, that He would incline the hearts of the citizens… to entertain a brotherly love and affection one for another….and finally that He would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with…the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, without an humble imitation of whose example we can never hope to be a happy nation.”……………The guiding principle and prayer of this nation has been, is now, and shall ever be ” In God WE Trust”

  99. Screwed on November 7th, 2012 9:06 am

    We are finished as a once proud nation…under God. The end is near. Just think what Obama is gonna do now that he has nothing to lose…no need to play it safe for the next term. And you people want to scream racism because I voted for Romney??? The fact is that 95% of black americans voted for Obama…now that’s what I call racism. Just voting for someone based on their color is the epitomy of racism. So hold out your hands and sit back on you unemployed rears and enjoy the downfall of America…you’ve earned it.

  100. Ben on November 7th, 2012 9:06 am

    Well, it didn’t turn out as I had hoped. But we’ll be alright.
    The world didn’t stop turning, we didn’t turn socialist or communist.
    The constitution is still intact.
    The time for party-line rhetoric is over, at least for me.

    I believe this is a good time for Republicans to honestly reflect on what we want to be. If we couldn’t defeat Obama with his record, then we have some pretty deep problems. We carry the baggage of the Bush years…let’s admit to some mistakes and set policies that don’t repeat them.

  101. tc on November 7th, 2012 9:04 am

    No of course we aren’t racist. Lets look at the facts.

    70% of white people voted for Romney. Look at his campaign event photos. 95% white people. Look at his Election watch party last night. It looked like a millionaire’s private dinner party, suits and ties, fine wine, high dollar beer, and mostly white people.

    Look at Obama campaign events. The photos speak for themselves. People from all races, colors, genders, income levels, and sexual orientations. Look at the election watch party. That event would be what middle class Americans would consider a party. Casual clothes, lots of enthusiasm, and people again of all different backgrounds.

    It just shows that the Republican party has isolated itself to the majority of a very select group of people, and that is why they lost. Clinging to old values is not the way forward.

    As for Concerned Citizen, Obama has policies in place to fund your continuing education. So if you were actually keeping up with the facts you would also be aware that Romney very clearly stated he would cut spending on higher education. When asked where should the money to go to college come from, he said you should ask your PARENTS. <-This is fact. Not political hype. If you are old enough to vote in the next election, make sure you are familiar with the facts before voting. I voted for Obama in 2008 and again this year, not because I am not racist but because I am not stuck in the past.

    Today, I will convert to Islam. That way, I’ll be exempt from Obamacare. I’m also applying for food stamps, ebt, and every other government handout. If I can’t beat them, I’ll join them until the dollar is as worthless as a grain of sand.

  103. hmm.. on November 7th, 2012 8:56 am

    With obama elected as president for another four years the world will never be okay again.. i wish i would have been old enough to vote and voice my opinion in this election.. what wil it be like in four years wit him in office..

  106. Conserative Worried Citizen on November 7th, 2012 8:42 am

    I wish I was old enough to vote in this election, I am scared to see what is going to happen in these next four years. America will NEVER be the same anymore. I think they should do a recount. My future is hanging in the balance and possibly destroyed by now. Someone told me this morning “We voted Obama in the first time to show we weren’t racist, we voted him in the second time to prove we’re idiots.”

  107. Lily on November 7th, 2012 8:34 am

    The American People have spoken! Now, no matter who you voted for, it is time for us to put aside our differences and work to keep this nation great!

  108. bmr on November 7th, 2012 8:34 am

    To Kevin E. No you are wrong, HE,(God) destroyed Soddam, because there was no,onebut Lott and his wife and 2 daughters.

  109. James Broel on November 7th, 2012 8:31 am

    I voted for Obama and glad he won the election. However we face some amazing challenges in the future and I pray Obama will lead our politically divided country into the next four years with greatness!!

  110. Bob hudson on November 7th, 2012 8:27 am

    Well congrads to all you obama supporters, I sure he will make you a fine president. But I did not vote for him the first time , and I did not vote for him this time, I have no intention of supporting his agenda, or supporting his decisions. I do not support what he has done , or what he stands for. I voted and because of that and what I think is right I will not compromise what I believe in. And I am entitled to my opinion , Yes there is as God , and I think he is mad with us.

  111. tc on November 7th, 2012 8:27 am

    as Romney suggested last night in his concession speech, its time to move forward from the chaos and political discord of the election; regardless of whether you agree with his policies or not, it is time to come together as one nation again and take the country forward;

    if Romney had won last night, my opinion would still be the same; the election is over, the people have spoken, its now time for everyone to do their job as American citizens and support the President of the United States, whether you voted for him or not;

    if the majority of America wanted Obama to have 4 more years, who are you to say that they are wrong? if you want to disagree fine, but it is what it is, don’t be a sore loser, its time to move forward

  112. Need Faith on November 7th, 2012 8:26 am

    I am with the Patriot on this one it isn’t about the color at all for that fact he’s very smart for as you want to put it nene because he’s black. It’s about the beliefs that this world doesn’t have anymore. That’s ok God does do things for a reason and we don’t know what that reason is, but know God don’t make mistakes. Whether this was a good or bad thing we will see. Although we all know he didn’t do much the first four years so what makes us think he can do another four? That’s what it all comes down to though all the lazy people out there who enjoy sitting on their a$$ and getting handed money. That’s fine if the world wants to support abortion and gay marriage, because Obama got reelected it’s ok. Well let me say this he has children how would he feel if people supported killing them. Also he may have royalty on Earth but the real one who has all the power is God. He put him back in office and guess what he can take him out just as fast also. He will have to face the Judge one day and it may not be pretty, but why should that matter he didn’t care when he was over our country. Not even being an American how is that fair Obama can’t even solute to our flag or even put his hand over his heart. Wow we did it America!!!

  113. havemercy on November 7th, 2012 8:21 am

    Everybody better be on their knees praying for this country!!! The United States is headed for trouble with four more years of this!! God help us all….

    @anonymous, very well said.

  116. tc on November 7th, 2012 8:04 am

    Just saw that the House Speaker is already refusing to cooperate with any tax increases for the wealthy.

    Cutting government spending and streamlining government agencies is only part of the equation. If you really want to cut the deficit, then you have to be open to some tax increases and this would be one of them. They should also increase taxes on businesses that ship jobs overseas. Not only does this generate revenue but it gives additional incentive to create jobs here in the US where they are needed.

    If the Republican party was willing to budge on a few things, more would get done in Washington, no matter who was President.

  117. anonymous on November 7th, 2012 7:51 am

    This was not a surprise. Anyone who has actually been following the race knew Romney had only a very slim chance at victory. Just because he had so much support around here, doesn’t mean he had the support where he needed it.

    I am also surprised that people are so quick to call other Americans stupid. Obama won the electoral and popular vote, so isn’t it possible that YOU were wrong instead. NO WAY!

    So, instead of electing someone who refused to discuss any details about his agenda until AFTER he was elected, the American public decided not to gamble on this unknown.

    America will not be destroyed. That is so unpatriotic to be saying things like that. If you don’t like the fact that we have a system that elects the president by majority vote, then move to a country that doesn’t offer the freedom that we enjoy.

    So, this is over until 2016. 4 more years of slow but steady economic growth. 4 more years of guaranteed access to healthcare for all. 4 more years of advancement for women’s rights. 4 more years of ENDING wars, not starting new ones. 4 more years of peaceful international cooperation, and keeping our troops where they are needed, and after a decade of war, that is here at home with their loved ones.

  118. 429SCJ on November 7th, 2012 7:30 am

    @Lord Help. How many of our soilders, our sons and daughters would you pass through the fire for those people. There has been enough Gentile blood spilled in the middle east. I think of Beiruit 1983, 241 Americans killed, Iraq 4486 dead, Afganistan 2150 and this is not to mention the tens of thousand who suffered life altering injuries. How much of my peoples blood would you spill for Israel.

    If the people occuping the territory of Israel today are truly of Abraham’s covenant, then the last think they need is America’s help. I f they are under the protection of the covenant, then the hand of God is over them. Israel should put their faith in God, not Americas sons and daughters who make up our military, not theirs.

    I read Matthew 12:25, I would recommend that you read John 8:39-47, Revelation 2:9-10 and 3:9. Amen

  119. Narrow is the way..... on November 7th, 2012 7:24 am

    It’s sad that so many are blinded by this President’s smooth talk and no action. This president has an agenda and it’s not for America to succeed. You should be concerned about the path this Nation is currently on and the direction our President is leading us. If you want to see what the future of this country will look like then research the results on some of the State amendments in other areas. The current trend in America reminds me of that song about the snowball headed towards hell. Gay marriage amendments (passed)…..recreational use of marijuana amendments (passed or should I say poof, poof pass). Well, we shouldn’t be surprised….this Nation has slowly strayed from our Lord and the Bible clearly describes what will happen.

  120. BOGIAN on November 7th, 2012 7:22 am

    @ Thanks Whining about people who voted for a third party candidate instead of a Republican candidate that would have continued the trend of fiscal irresponsibility is counterproductive. Contact your local party headquarters and let them know that you watched government spending balloon under Bush for eight years and you’d rather not choke future generations with a spiraling national debt.

  121. THANK GOD!!! on November 7th, 2012 7:19 am


  122. Kathy on November 7th, 2012 7:17 am

    I was almost giddy when I learned that President Obama won again!! He is a good man whom the people decided to re-elect. I got an e-mail from my friend in Germany, she and her children didn’t eat breakfast because they were awe struck by his acceptance speech. See, people in America aren’t stupid, they have good values, good common sense and know an intelligent President when they see one.

  123. mnon on November 7th, 2012 6:53 am

    I agree with Kevin… When it all comes down to it, it is swapping one evil for another. Our lives and this world is in Gods hands, not a black President, and guess what in 4 short years, he’s out! and some other evil will be in his place doing what HE/SHE wants to do with America and its policies. I agree also the world is the way it is because of the way peoples attitudes have changed, and the way they act, like most of the people commenting here are unjustified and uncalled for, conspiracy ranting junk to make themselves sound smart. When in fact most of you are extremely out of touch with reality, you really buy into everything you hear? If you want the world to be a better place it starts with each one of you.

  124. MolinoMomma on November 7th, 2012 6:50 am

    @Lord Help….you hit the nail right on the head. I was so hoping & praying that America would wake up & vote him out but I guess they flushed their common sense down the toilet. Pray we survive these next 4 years.

  125. T-rex on November 7th, 2012 6:37 am

    Its all over now!!! America’s days of greatness are in the past. We have dumbed down in this Nation to the point that we do not even know what someone stands for! We just think he’s cool, or he’s cute! We deserve another four years of this socialist/communist!!! What happened to Greece is coming here!! You cant put everybody on an entitlement program and expect to ever balance the national budget!!!

    PS. If there was another country to move to, I would. But America WAS the last great hope of the world!!! I’m stuck here with a generation of idiots!!

  126. Randy on November 7th, 2012 6:24 am

    WOW! we need to make it a requirement that all persons wishing to vote take a simple 10 question test before their allowed to vote. Ignorant people will be the downfall of this country: Ya better start teaching your kids Chinese as we will all be working for them soon enough.

  127. Kathy on November 7th, 2012 6:10 am

    Kevin Enfinger, you don’t vote but yet you call the people here immature? If you didn’t vote, then keep your ignorant comments to yourself.

  128. mom on November 7th, 2012 6:00 am

    Be careful what you say in front of your children today. Remember they learn respect or disrespect from watching and hearing you.Just because your candidate did or did not win, you still need to respect how the country voted for the President of the United States. Let’s not start dividing our children based on race. We as a country have come to far for that.

  129. Thanks on November 7th, 2012 5:57 am

    Well, I hope all the young, hip “indie” folks who voted third party to make a point are happy.

    You’ll have plenty of time to congratulate each other when you get out of college and move back in with mom or dad because you can’t find a job.

    For the rest of us working people, be prepared to see your income decline even more starting Jan. 1.

    Where does “the dole” line start? Might as well go get in it. If you can’t beat ‘em, might as well join them…….nope, my dignity, self worth, and work ethic will not allow it.

  130. fearthebeard on November 7th, 2012 5:52 am

    …I guess I now work for myself and all of those that don’t work and play xbox and talk on their gov’t phones…I mean, my phone, that they don’t pay for.

    If you voted for the current prez…look your children and their children in the eye and tell them what’s in store for them.

  131. CMA on November 7th, 2012 5:44 am

    I don’t know about the rest of you but before I go to the polls and cast my ballot, I pray to a Mighty All Serving God. He’s President Obama’s God just as He is ours. And, though I am apparently 1 of the “majority” of “idiots” who voted for Obama, had Romney won, I’d have prayed for him too. I didn’t vote for Bush but I prayed HARD for that man. Nobody seems to remember or understand that our Commander has a boss too and He sits way higher than the oval office. Trust in the God we serve. Rise up and do YOUR part to make America greater. Quit the in fighting and the concerns that the president has a perpetual tan. Pray a blessing over him. Pray that God directs his path….or whine for the next for years. It’s your choice…

  132. friction against the machine on November 7th, 2012 5:17 am

    Historians will note this date as the date the American people pulled the plug on the life support for he American Republic. Of course, those historians will be of Chinese orgin. The people who have reelected him have no idea what’s about to happen to their country. We now have ineffective leadership at all tiers of government. Yet the republicans are partly to blame…they had the chance to save the nation…instead of picking the best candidate, they picked the one with the biggest bank roll….sad…we were once such a great nation.

  133. GODBLESSTHESOUTH on November 7th, 2012 5:12 am

    Happy the President won. Happy to go to work tomarrow. Happy to be an American.

  134. doublewide on November 7th, 2012 4:32 am

    I did vote (not Obama) and it didn’t help. Now we need to stop blaming each other and call our congress person and let them know what we want! If you want to keep gripping GO FOR IT, but it won’t help. Now we don’t have to seeor hear it for 4 more years. I don’t care about his skin color, but I do care about what I will have to do as a working person in the States. And it will not be easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  135. BOGIAN on November 7th, 2012 1:42 am

    The sun will come up tomorrow.

    If you didn’t vote for him, that is just fine. I won’t call you a racist. If you did vote for him, that is just fine. I won’t call you a dummy.

    I just hope that the next four years is better than the last four years. The last term was an unmitigated disaster. The employment numbers are bad, the world still hates us, and food stamp usage is creeping closer to 50 million Americans. I trust he won’t insult our intelligence by blaming Bush if this next term is as bad as the last.

    As for the cheering about some mysterious “we” that is somehow “in there,” I doubt that one of the Obama family is posting on this article right now. Judging from the way the sentence is written, I doubt you’ll ever get close to being “in there,” wherever that is. That leads me to believe that it is some kind of race based pride thing. If so, way to go. A white woman’s son is President. Again. Just like every other President we’ve ever had. Race baiting only makes you look bad.

    Congratulations, America.

  136. Brian on November 7th, 2012 1:28 am

    There are some strange ramblings on here, that are quite morally upsetting, He is are president and rather you like it our not he deserves are respect.
    By the way have they called Florida it looks like the democrats might take it this year and keep the senate, Gods will as you would say right?

  137. kevin enfinger on November 7th, 2012 1:26 am

    WHO REALLY GIVES A DARN!!!! I mean really people you talk on here you talk on facebook downing other people for who they voted for. i didnt vote and idc who won and who didnt because i believe in the true values and that is leaving it in Gods hands. God save a city why, because of one person am i correct. So do you really think judgement is coming and all this stuff yall talk about just because we have the same president for four years. are your heads realyl that high up you butts to not realize yall are all immature and dumb for posting stuff like this. Every thing happens for a reason leave it in Gods hands Yall talk God God God but yall are passing judgement on a man. so stop. this is why this country is liek it is is people like some of you. enough already deal with it go on with your lives take one day at a time. Why worry about stuff liek this if you really think the world is coming to end and judgement and all that then stop worrying abotu this crap adn spend time with your kids and family. geez

  138. EMD on November 7th, 2012 1:14 am

    I never dreamed I’d live to see the day that America would vote itself what I believe is a Communist president. A Muslim Communist president(I believe) at that. Do people not compare what one does with what they say? I believe most have no idea what they have just done and what will follow. May God have mercy in the midst of Judgment on the United States of America. :’(

  139. Lord help!! on November 7th, 2012 1:12 am

    Make no mistake, judgement has arrived. And we shall not escape. Israel now will attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. They must attack, they have no choice. Netanyahu knows he has no friend in America, and the window for waiting has now officially closed. When America refuses to assist Israel….we’re turning our backs on God and His people….when that time comes…be prepared to see the fall of America. Obama has done nothing but divide this country. This is the most divided this nation has been since the founding of our country. Matthew 12:25 Jesus talks of nations, kingdoms, or households divided will fall. Sorry America….we let you down.

  140. Just Me on November 7th, 2012 1:07 am

    Can we say Voter fraud??? Anyone who would vote for 4 more years of this fool is really out of touch with the WORKING MAN! I call for a RECOUNT!

    The people have spoken (voted), glad to know consumer spending highest in 4 years. Keep up the good work Mr. President Obama, We know america would vote the right man to finish the job.

  144. bmr on November 7th, 2012 12:40 am

    to just tired, with all do respect have you had your head in the sand for the last four years? he is a Muslim he doesnt believe in God ,he even said on national tv he was a muslim. just saying ,and also if you look at his policies and line them up with the policies of socialism they go hand in hand communism did not work for Russia ,not working for Cuba, your freedom of religion is gonna be threatend and why should we have to forcefully have insurance if we can pay cash for our healthcare is this not a threat on your freedom as well as everybody.If you have parents who want or need surgery for thier heart or other wise serious medical help they will not be allowed .I don’t believe we will have to wait long before he will show his ungodly side. I hope I am wrong I really do, but I don’t believe I am.

    Google just announced that the number one search today was “who is running for president”…..Now I know why we’ve got another term of Obama….b/c most Americans are so out of tune they don’t even know who’s running for the president of the United States. American values, pride and morals have hit an all time low. Let me get this straight….it’s election day and I’m not even sure who’s running for president, so I jump on Google and do a quick search… Oh yeah, Obama, ain’t he president right now….yeah that guy’s cool….he’s the guy that’s always playing golf or basketball while leaders of other nations are requesting to have meetings with him or people in our New England states are freezing their rear ends of b/c they don’t have no gas to power their generators…..yeah Obama…that guy’s like a movie star….charismatic…kind of like our messiah…I think I’ll vote for him, by the way…who is this Mitt dude…I can’t vote for him, he looks too much like a business man…he might actually make me get a job so I can make my own money instead of sponging off of the system…Thank you Google for helping me make my decision..Obama it is.

  147. just tired on November 7th, 2012 12:08 am

    I just want to thank God for letting his will be done. I’m so glad there was enough people who had the wisdom and knowledge to make the right decision for our country. I wish my President the best in his second term and pray that God will help him to make the right decisions for America because I, along with the majority of Americans believes that he truly cares about the well-being of our nation.

  148. Patriot on November 7th, 2012 12:03 am

    I don’t care if the president is black or white, or purple, for that matter! I look at values… what my representative stands for!! I was a Herman Cain supporter, I was looking at what he could do for our country, not the color of his skin! Why do people automatically thinks that you are racist if you don’t support Obama? Then you hear the same people say that color doesn’t matter.

  149. huh on November 6th, 2012 11:52 pm

  150. nene on November 6th, 2012 11:43 pm

    That is exactly why he is president again. All you all do is talk negative talk..You have had worse than President Obama…Just be honest and tell the truth. It’s the color of his skin that you don’t like. You don’t want to be goverened by a black man. Well, take it to God because he allowed it to happen. Get over it!

  155. middle class downgraded to poor on November 6th, 2012 11:20 pm

    Prepare to work harder to see what little cash you make go to more government programs. If you think you’ve seen an increase in the last four years of people using the EBT cards to buy steak, shrimp, Heinz, or any other expensive name brand product, then think again b/c it’s fixing to get a lot worse. The middle class just lost what spendable cash they had tonight, but guess what… make too much and aren’t a minority so you don’t qualify for government assistance. After tonight you will see more and more people using food stamps, WIC, free cellphones, etc. Not only will you start to lose your luxuries, you might even have to decide which necessities to keep, while your money goes to support their necessities so their cash can be spent on luxurious items since they now have more spendable cash than you. Be prepared for this country to FAIL and FAIL quick. It can no longer sustain itself. 47% of the country doesn’t even work, they just draw a check. How will America survive….IT WANT. Has God finally turned His back on America. We support gay marriage…God doesn’t, we support the murder of innocent babies…God doesn’t. We continue to give free “hand outs” for no reason when the Bible clearly tells us to WORK for our wages. OUR government has tried to take God out of everything, including schools (and they’re falling apart faster than Obama is racking up our deficit) Welcome to the United States of a godLESS America. May He have mercy on us.
