Observer

Thank God for the end of this multi-billion dollar extravaganza; it's outrageous how much resources are wasted on this fiasco. One of these candidates should have pledged to change this outlandish procedure for electing our president.
Hal's statement of 'I'm outta here' is what Mittens will be saying soon. Bwahaha

Crazyone

To bad for some and excitement for others for soon Obama will become one other 7.9 percent.

 Gretel , the old schoolmarm

Crazyone, you're right about that, dearie. Mr. Obama will find himself in the unemployment line tomorrow, sonny. . Teeheeeheeeeheeee, I'm giving you a D .......The Old Schoolmarm

Preston

I told you Tommy would morph into a woman this time

T-S

That made me smile, Preston. Thanks.

T-S

Well, is anybody else enjoying watching Nate's predictions coming true? Bwahahahaha to steal Tommy's bravado.

Preston

I'm glad Scott Brown got his dick knocked in the dirt

Preston

Alan Grayson wins too

T-S

Yes, and Tim Kaine squeaking out George Allen in Virginia so far. Let's hope it holds. That would be one racist down.

Preston

Tammy Baldwin too, GOP has serious soul searching to do

Preston

NBC calling it for Obama as he wins Ohio

RQ

Romney fought the good fight. With no change in the senate or house majorities, let's hope President Obama can find a way to move us forward.

T-S

538 called it precisely. So much for Rasmussen. It is up to the Republicans to make sure he can. It is on them if they obstruct the recovery of the American economy.

T-S

Just curious, RQ: how is lying fighting the "good" fight?

RQ

You just can't be a graceful winner, can you T-S? I'm not going to respond to more "liar, liar" accusations because there is no point to continuing an argument that is longer relevant.

It's the "my way or the highway" attitude on both sides that has us at a standstill. It will take incredible leadership to break the gridlock, and yes, that is the job of the president.

RQ

make that "no longer relevant."

T-S

No, it's the filibusters, dear. And Koch money. And "graciousness" is not going to right this country. It is on the Republicans to help us. Will they?

Sp. Del for Dick from TS

Special delivery for Hal err Tommy err Dick err the old schoolmarm (now that's weird): For conservatives, this natural human inclination to embrace the data that they like and discard the rest is greatly enhanced, and essentially injected with steroids.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

GOPer

Well, I am moving to Canada. One less small business owner and twelve more in the unemployment line. Good riddance to this country taken over by Communist sympathizers.

Preston

Tommmy and his Sybil friends slinked out the way Trump slinked out in Chicago after bilking investors over a failed tower

TS

Bachmann in a 50/50 race right now and Ryan - can you believe it? - up by 17% and declared the winner even though his district now knows he channels Ayn Rand. What losers they are.

Hey small businessman, move to Canada. At least they'll provide your employees some healthcare. Sounds like a good move to me. This socialist (that's the term you mean to use if you knew what you were talking about) won't miss a fascist.

TS

Kind of a fun column taking on the erroneous predictions of the worst prognosticators

A fun read.

Chucks

Good grief! I take a nap (pas out stone tired) and wake up to this. The world is collapsing.
Oh well. At least we, as a nation, had the good sence to keep Congress in tact so that the spending might be brought under control.
Congratulations to my lib neighbors. I'm taking two Unisom, a glass of Canadian Club and going back to sleep.
At least pot is now legal. Maybe I can take up that habit and coast by on the dole.

Mr. Rodriguez explains it all for you

1. He was given a break and a second chance because the American people still blame George W. Bush for the economic problems of the first term. 2. The first term is already over, as far as the American people are concerned. The new rules start tomorrow. Real jobs growth, and GDP growth, before the midterm elections, or there will be a changing of the guard , with veto-proof, Republican House and Senate chambers, who will pass whatever bills they see fit. One old Washington D.C. pol calls what Mr. Obama pulled off tonight "walking past the bear". "The bear" will let you pass by him once, maybe, but not twice. I'm Mr. Rodriguez and I just explained it all for you.

OneWhoKnows

Guess we should have ignored the polls (& Tommy) and paid more attention to Observer.
Oh, what a night!

Preston

Tommy won't tell us why though...

"Women's strong support in the swing states gave Obama a significant advantage over Romney, despite his losses among men and independents. While Obama lost by 10 percentage points among independents in Ohio, he won by 12 points among women in the state.

In New Hampshire, women voted for Obama over Romney by a margin of 58 to 42 percent, while men preferred Romney by a narrow 4-point gap. Pennsylvania showed a 16-point gender gap that tipped the scale toward Obama.

TS

Don't forget people of color, Preston. The only vote in which Romney snagged a majority was white men . . . like HTD&S-M.

OneWhoKnows

All other ballot issues pale in comparison with the gay marriage issue. America is awakening to a new Dawn and Don. Hallelujah !!!

nameless

Thomas: why can't you admit Obama can lose?

Do you have your answer now?

 Hedge Fund Hal

i just back into town after taking a drive to Oregon and back overnight, where i listened to music not news on the car radio. I come back to Throckmorton manor to hear the news of Romney's trmendous victory, although it was close. I told you all this would happen. Ohio was announced for Romney by Foxnews finally at 9 p.m. our time, and the rest of the networks followed suit. Obama's angry concession speech didn't come until 2 am on the east coast. They claimed they were waiting for Virginia ot be called but it was called at 12:45 EASTERN. Bad form. I mean , come on, calling Romney/Ryan " dangerous extremists"? Don't go away mad. Barry-just go away,

Preston

Irrelevant Alert!

Observer

Folks that is a prime example of what is referred to as delirium tremens.
Bwahahaha

 Hedge Fund Hal

Apparently American white women were scared off and repulsed by Romney's and Ryan's normal masculinity, so they went for the girlyman candidate. What a ridiculous group of voters.

Preston

yep, blame the voters, Thomas

Walt

On average, pre-election polls from 28 public polling organizations projected a Democratic advantage of 1.07 percentage points on Election Day, which is only about 0.63 percentage points away from the current estimate of a 1.7-point Obama margin in the national popular vote. [...]

Observer

Thanks Walt, very interesting stuff. (Might I point out the position of Tommy's favorite, Gallup...Bwahaha).
You know the obvious silver lining to this result is four years to appoint new Supremes'. Doesn't get too much better than this.

 Hedge Fund Hal

Obama cut off federal educaion money to New Jersy as punishment for electing Christie. Apparently the quid pro quo that was implied to Christie by the gang out of Chicago, although im sure it was never actually said, is that you give me some photo ops during Sandy, and kiss my ass with effusive praise, and you'll get your FEMA money. Christie was desperate for the FEMA money for his state, because he knew he would be voted out next year if he didn't get it. Likewise with Bloomburg. he knew he had to play ball with "the punisher" to get his FEMA money so he begrudgingly coughed up his phony Obama endorsement. I think Christie and Bloomburg, but mainly Chrisite were enough to tip the balance for Obama. Obama still ended up the first president in American history to win re-election with less support than the first election.

nameless

Thomas;
are you not tired of being wrong yet? everything you said has been proven wrong. it's like your living in a different reality...

Observer

And not to mention that he wouldn't be posting for a week or so. If he had ANY credibility left it's surely gone now.

T-S

I don't know why anyone has to steal my T-S but they, like HTDS&M must like the attention it brings. I hope the guy who runs this blog will chime in that the previous T-S is not authentic. I don't need anyone speaking for me. I speak for myself rather well. Umm, not that I totally disagree with the sentiment.

And HTDS&M, you do require an awful lot of attention. Is it so lonely in your basement?

Chris Chronic

They are at the KC Library in Kent, we took care of it and told the front desk there is a level 3 sex offender posting

T-S

Muchas gracias.

 Hedge Fund Hal

RQ, only the angry, mean-spirited, cowardly left can manage to be "sore winners" on the day after their election dream night. This election has a lot of the feel of the 1972 election, which i also voted in. Nixon was swept in with a big vicory, only to face impeachment hearings within 18 months. The House is still Republican-controlled, that means they can hold hearings on Benghazi and they will. Impeachment is a real possibility, if this thing gets even uglier and nastier than it is now. And with this Chicago gang, other Obama wrongdoing of impeachment level seriousness that we know nothing of yet, could easily crawl out from under the rocks.

T-S

Misery loves company, HFH.

I never say I told you so but I told you so. And I didn't even vote for him.

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha.

 Hedge Fund Hal

the news is in on the real reason Romney lost. It wasn't Obama's ground game or Hispanics or silly young white women.The conservative base did not show up. Exit polls and other studies post-election reveal that millions of repub base voters stayed home. Either they thought romney was too moderate or, (my view) i think the stealth religious bigotry against Mormons was just too strong, especially among the Evangelicals who are taught Mormons aren't Christians but cultists.. The Dems are just as bigoted against Mormons but they didn't have one running.

TS

excuses . . . excuses . . . excuses. . .

We've heard enough from you.
