Obama Wins by Going Negative and Turning Out Base

The GOP needs to get back into the cities. Romney won ALL of the real estate (as did McCain), 90% of all counties, but no cities. Phila. won PA, Cleveland and Toledo won OH, and Green Bay won WI. I do not think the Founders, all farmers, foresaw a few machines that manufacture votes in myriad ways (I was once a Dem. and know all of the methods they use) determining who is pres. of the US. obozo never broke 50% in any poll for over a year, but he won in two Rep. states, OH and WI, with 51%. zero's last stop in OH drew 2500 people; Romney in Bucks Co, PA, drew 30,000. Slight disconnect there. The right has to learn to fight as dirty as the left; control media (bankrupt the NYTimes); use negative ads as o did.

We couldn't go negative, remember, because then we would be accused of "RACISM!"

EXACTLY, and don't say anything about same sex marriage, or giving an amnesty to illegal aliens, just roll over and kick yourself in the a** because you are called a "racist" no matter what your beliefs are. I'm supposed to give up my beliefs, just because YOU want it Renny? I'm NOT forcing my beliefs on you, but were just supposed to accept anything the lefties want with no thought on our side of the aisle.
I'm sorry but the MEDIA didn't call Obama on his lies, in fact Candy Crawley stood up for Obama, she was a mediator, she should have let Obama do his own BS.
Obama was a dirty, smug, arrogant human being, you can have his lying a**.
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...
