This article is junk and a reach. The country's economy has improved the last couple of years and the President rightfully won reelection because of it. Also, conservatives got their tails kicked all over the country and it wasn't because people are voting for Dems because of hand outs. It's insulting, not true, and because Republicans are always saying things derogatory like this, they suffer the consequences. Republicans ran a bunch of complete lunatics as primary candidates and the only sane moderate who came out of the process was an awful candidate who inspired nobody. Quit making brain dead excuses, quit blaming minorities and quit disrespecting women. You might wian election at some point. But until then, enjoy your s**t sandwich.

Your party got completely slaughtered as far as the women's vote. As in - crushed. Even in races the Republicans won, they lost the women's vote. But keep thinking and saying it has to do with "handouts," "takers versus makers," etc. It's insulting and you'll be in electoral oblivion forever.

Enjoy the $5000 in new taxes when the kick in as Obama is taking the oath of office (words he clearly doesn't understand or care about).

You elected a liar - I wish it was just you and your ilk who are going to reap the benefits...

Don't worry-Lizzie gets most of her talking points from her mom!

Here's something I've been trying to figure out since Obama's re-election on Tuesday, and which I included in my column in Townhall Magazine's December issue (so consider this a sneak peek!): Everyone kept saying the economy was the main issue; and the exit polls agreed. How did residents of swing states feel comfortable enough economically to think four more years of the same would help?

Of the “toss up” states in this election, Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nevada and Florida all elected GOP governors post-2008, and several have GOP senators. In fact, only two toss-up states in 2012 had...
