What Happened?

Well, Rich, you ask "what happened"? What happened was a bunch of people sitting in our Congressional seats that allowed an Indonesian citizen to usurp our office twice in a row. Will we ever have another election in our lifetimes with a communist dictator in control? Goodbye USA, hello USSA perhaps? Isn't it odd, I had to show a photo ID to prove I was legally eligible to vote but Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama didn't even have to prove he was an American citizen to run for the office... again. Does anyone know who he is?

Yes, exactly! People like you were perceived as typical conservatives and thus drove away the middle ground that is needed by either side to win the Presidency.
Obama won. Not by a lot, but by more than enough.

In the end it came down to the battleground states, and President Obama won most of them by slim, but decisive, margins.

Florida - Obama +1

Ohio - Obama +2

Virginia - Obama +3

Colorado - Obama +3

New Hampshire - Obama +5

Wisconsin - Obama +5

Iowa - Obama +6

Michigan - Obama +7

Of the nine battleground states, only North Carolina went into Mitt Romney's column and that by 3 percentage points.

As an interested...
