Here is the most positive thing that I can say. Prersident Obama is an affirmitive action hire by the country, and you get what you pay for, as in cheap. He is clueless about the economy and that is why we are still in a recession, and his appeal to divide the country into color of skin voters is the most racial thing that he could do. He is first a racist, and then a person. Also, to pile on, his wife is more ractist than he is and she dresses funny.

Obama "White mans greed runs a world in need." And he's out to fix all that. In the name of fairness, of course.

Jim,

"She dresses funny"? Would you prefer bib overalls?

I don't care how she dresses, but I have a big problem with her food police program....may be the bigger problem isn't junk food, may be it's that urban schools graduate less than 50 percent of their student body. May be gangs, crime, family dysfunction, out of wedlock births and addiction in urban neighborhoods is a more important issue.
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...
