They will probably be better off not having an a-hole boss like you to work for.

I'm going to be slowing or stopping work at clinics I go to where the staff voted Democrat. The left started the whole business about making the personal political. We're just catching up.

I don't know if he really fired people or not. But as Obama was so fond of pointing out, "elections have consequences". The consequences of an Obama presidency have been overwhelmingly negative. If he really did fire these employees, they will not find jobs easily. The real unemployment rate is over 20% and climbing.

It's highly doubtful his story is true. He sounds like just another petulant republican inventing stories to irk people.

But yeah, even if t were true the fired employees would be much better off.
There are important lessons to be learned from the results of the 2012 presidential election about the shape of the electorate and how Americans voted. And it might not be what you think.

Overall, many, many fewer Americans turned out to vote. 2008 was a high-water mark for turnout in what may have been an anomaly. President Obama received seven million fewer votes nationwide, but it wasn't a case of the President losing voters to his Republican challenger - Mitt Romney won more than one million fewer votes than John McCain as well.

Some of the much-vaunted demographic advantages...
