"I Believe in the People of America" That's mighty nice of him because I don't. Obviously adults aren't in control any longer so it was a nice experiment while it lasted. How a man with such a horrid record, fiscal armageddon incoming, and downright criminal law enforcement/military action/policies was reelected is the last nail in coffin for America. I'm not going to sugar coat it either, this is devastating for the country and my future is beyond bleak now. Prepping for disaster. 2013+ here we come!

See my comment above. The left merely held ground. We picked up overall. And in a Presidential election year, which are always Democrat-heavy. In two years, we will pick up even more seats. In 2016, it will be game on for the White House - no incumbents.

Our task now is to keep the pressure on the GOP and to attack the left with intellectual arguments, not mere name-calling. We must keep the pressure on the left and on the center. No one should get the idea that things will go back to normal now. They must understand that this is a war and they will have to choose sides, and if they choose the wrong one, they will pay a price.

The electorate doesn't care though. Obama is literally the perfect candidate to run against. His record and the fact are so against him any logically thinking electorate would vote him out in a landslide. Americans want stuff paid for by others plain and simple. No amount of conservatism will counter that. IF you think holding up the agenda of the guy they just voted in power again is going to do anything but reenforce their want needs to the house and senate next election you're beyond help.

Adults don't run the country any longer. That is what you can take away from such a ridiculous election. There isn't a single positive thing coming from the administration that just was reelected. Race and distribution rule America now. Congrats.

It was predicted a century ago.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

Good quote, Vet. Can you tell me the source, please.

“I wish all of them well,” Governor Mitt Romney said in front of a somber crowd at Romney Headquarters in Boston. “I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”

After a long year of campaigning, Romney congratulated President Barack Obama on his re-election tonight and provided his supporters with faith by touting Paul Ryan’s fiscal leadership.

“I want to thank Paul Ryan for all he has done for our campaign and for our country, besides my wife Ann, Paul is the best choice I’ve ever made,” Romney said. “ I...
