Obama Wins by Going Negative and Turning Out Base

Nothing negative about calling the president a socialist, someone who 'doesn't understand America', someone not born in America, a communist, a muslim, etc etc. Look in the mirror hypocrite.

Romney did NONE of those things, and neither did his campaign or his PAC's.
So your post is moot.

Lukewarm. That's the feeling I get from the election numbers.

Turnout was apparently down, at least as a percentage of eligible voters. The president was re-elected by a reduced margin. The challenger didn't inspire the turnout surge he needed.

Every re-elected president since Andrew Jackson has won with an increased popular vote percentage. Barack Obama didn't. He won 53 percent to 46 percent in 2008. His numbers as I write are 50 percent to 48 percent over Mitt Romney. That could go up to 51 percent to 48 percent when California finishes its count, which took five weeks in 2008.

Obama owes most...
