Most people missed the real reason why President Obama and the Democrats did remarkably well. The real reason is because most of the media agreed with the values of President Obama and the Democrats and sold their version of reality to the American people. They distorted the Republicans’ records and positions and twisted them to make them unpalatable to the majority. They also conveniently didn't tell or distorted the news to fit the narrative proscribed by President Obama and the Democrats. The majority went with the distorted image of reality because they didn't research the facts or didn't want to deal with the facts. Sooner or later the distortion will disintegrate under the weight of true reality and it ain't going to be pretty!
