I'm seeing so many entertaining excuses:

- Hurricane Sandy
- Christie
- Democrats intimidating Republicans at polls
- Did I mention Hurricane Sandy?

They're blaming Christie and the hurricane?

Matthew Dowd said the GOP is a Mad Men party in a Modern Family world. Blame it on that. Ironic, since Romney says that's one of his favorite shows (Modern Family ) .

There's all kinds of blame and spin going on today. But I've been seeing a lot of, "well the only reason ______ voted for Obama was because he gives you free shit."

So all you Obama supporters, what did he give you?







Here's the reason Romney lost, plain and simple:

Quote:
The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges.

By Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein(an employee of the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute)

I wasn't really an Obama supporter because I am a third party person and I think both candidates will have the same economic outcome after four years. But then, as I was watching the live updates of which states were voting what I realized just how badly I didn't want Romney in office. I was genuinely scared Romney was going to win.

It was an odd thing to realize. As similar as they are economically, their social standings make all the difference to me.

If they move away from social issues, or at least moderate their stances, they will do a lot better with independents and centrists.

Not sure why this is just starting to dawn on them now.

So, I checked the Facebook of my craziest Right Wing friend.

He posted that he wants to move to Canada or New Zealand.

Even better, one of his crazy right wing friends says they want to move to Europe.

There are no words.

I'm just going to throw a dart at a map of the rest of the world and move where it lands.

The republicans on my Facebook are talking about how America is doomed and how we have ruined this country.



I saw some really racist/hateful posts last night about it. So I just decided to start posting in support of communism and claiming that this country needs FULL COMMUNISM and saying that Obama should become more leftist out of spite. They don't know what to do with me anymore. I am the black sheep of my family in this regard, along with my uncle.
