eric is an idiot so the imbecile who voted for third party candidate Johnson, maintains that Romney and mclame lost because of their vp choices since you claim you are morally superior because you hated both Romney and comrade hussein, now you are offering advice for repubs better you remove your head from your anal pore. you are just another loser who is totally irrelevant

tut,

I didn't say they lost because of their VP choices (they did some other things poorly too). I said they MIGHT have won if they'd made better running mate choices. Is that too difficult a distinction to grasp?

Both Palin and Ryan ran off more independent voters than they attracted -- and that's a problem for a presidential candidate who wants to win.

I think you need to come in and change right sides. You're losing some grip in the corners.

unlike you I understand the danger of comrade hussein

while you continue to try and convince yourself how noble you are for voting 3rd party

repubs don't need advice from imbeciles like you who support other parties

ah, an educated imbecile

guess that makes all the difference that you voted for Johnson even though he couldn't gain any traction in a large field of candidates

seems your hero dropped out early on when no one supported him

but you remained totally loyal

how cute

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...
