Obama Wins by Going Negative and Turning Out Base

The republican conservative base felt that the Republicans and their presidential candidate should have aggressively held Obama and the Democrats to account for Obama's and the Democrat party's illegal practices and this was probably a reason for not coming out full force and voting for Romney. Even after the election, the Republicans are still being soft on holding Obama accountable for his illegal practices.

That is mainly the job of the media. When Republicans are in office the media holds them accountable for every move they make. If a Republican administration had been in office when the Benghazi attack and cover-up took place there would have been at least ten Putlizer Prizes already handed out to the media for their coverage of the story. It would have been on the front page of every major newspaper and would have been the lead story on every TV network every day since 9/11/12. Why the American people cannot see the double standard is a mystery. Probably too busy watching Jerry Springer and Oprah.

Obviously, there is no republican conservative base in the main stream media (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN) except for some (not all) in Fox News.
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...
