SO, Bear Trax, What you're saying is that YOU'RE one of the TRAITORS on "our side" who voted by default (staying home) to let Obama stay in office for 4 more years and continue his efforts to destroy this nation. Do I have that right? WHY DID YOU DO THAT??? Was it because Romney's a "Mormon" and you'd rather have the country destroyed than let an evil "Mormon cultist" into the White House?

Or was it because Romney wasn't your idea of a "perfect candidate," so you'd rather have the country destroyed than have someone who's not "perfect" in your mind, even though infinitely more qualified than Obama, and definitely doesn't HATE this nation AS OBAMA DOES, in the Oval Office?

I hope you enjoy what you helped cause for this country by your CHILDISH tantrum of not voting because you couldn't have YOUR way.

LOTS of us didn't really want Romney in the job, but we wanted Obama even less so we voted for the candidate less likely to destroy the country. WHY COULDN'T YOU???

As far as I'm concerned when you stayed home on election night and let Obama win you gave up your right to complain about anything/everything he does that harms this country because YOU HELPED RE-ELECT THE POS.

You have a point, but the GOP had better find a better argument for voting for them than Obama is a POS.

Maybe something that is actually more appealing to people than the freebies they usually vote for. Our leaders have Ivy educations too - can't they think?

My sentiments exactly Marine's Dad - it is so sickening and disgusting but those who helped put the POS back in are now yelling and complaining the loudest. It makes me physically ill. I truly hope they are the first ones that get nailed one way or the other. When I see a well known spoikesman admitting many evangelicals stayed home to teach the establishment a lesson and says it with glee - it goes beyond sick. And it isn't just the evangleicals but the paulbots and the palinistas as well. Thank you for taking a stand!

Why do you blame it on the GOP? It is the voters responsibility and rather then blame it on the GOP why not just go Democrat and maybe they will please you more?
Watching the American scene in the 1960s, historian Daniel Boorstin, invented the idea of the “pseudo-event.” The rise of television and modern mass media had produced a transformation of the news business, so that what now mattered was not if an event was important, but only if it was “newsworthy.”

As Boorstin explained, the pseudo-event was orchestrated and planned to receive maximum public attention, even if the event itself was really unimportant. Pseudo-events merely look important, because the media and the public agree to act as if they are. As Boorstin explained, the pseudo-event is not something that happens by...
