    A good man he may be, but he does not deserve to lead his country because he lost. This is a democracy and we elect our leaders!

    Luckily, your fantasy did not come true, and your post also begs the question why you do not capitalize his last name... is it an unconscious slip, or an admit of general FAIL?

    Well great, many American people have made the wrong choice.....again. It will be regretted. 4 more years of BARACK'S REIGN OF TERROR will make them realize how foolish this decision was. His Communism will take over, then they'll be sorry. Sorry Mitt, we were pulling for you, bud. Liberals are mistaken, we need you for America!

    At least I can go to sleep knowing that God is in control of this nation, NOT "President" Obama.

    as opposed to man who is only concerned about the super wealthy 1% in this country?

    as opposed to the man who would rake you over the coals with taxes, and give all those nice tax breaks to his millionaire buddies?

    as opposed to the man who, if he could, would send women's rights back into the stone age?

    as opposed to the man who claims to want to keep jobs in America, yet who's own company outsources more jobs to China than any other?

    as opposed to the man who claimed that Russia should be our real concern, and not Afghanistan, during the time of our Afghan occupation?

    - Thank God Romney was not elected.... i never thought I would see someone more stupid and worse at lying than George W. - well... Romney proved me wrong..

    and your Africa comment btw is ignorant, bigoted garbage - and i hope the mods here remove it..

    He's only a boy leave him alone..we are just fueling the self righteousness of the teenage years. He wasn't even eligible to vote.

    EDIT: though I do agree the Africa comment was racist and should be removed

    Also, before you start throwing words around, you should learn what they mean. You clearly have no grasp of the definition of "communism", and I'd advise you to choose your words more carefully if you ever plan on being taken seriously. In fact, I think the unintelligent remarks many Romney supporters insist on making are a big part of Romney's failure. There are valid arguments in your favor and you haven't made any of them, but if you continue to speak in the manner you do, how would anybody support your cause? I mean, even tonight a friend of mine who is a Republican used the argument "Look at the number of red on the map compared to the number of blue." to make the point that he hardly even won. Frankly it's these sorts of people that make me lose faith in the American political system. Frankly there are too many citizens who are too uninformed to vote, but under the grace of democracy they're given that right.

    granted.. i've been there myself, i grew up a very very stubborn teenager (and still kind of am as an adult lol) - but even growing up i knew that there is a right and wrong way to present yourself without coming off as looking like a complete ass...

    ... maybe he just hasn't hit that crossroads yet...

    I seriously think 00Beast is yanking our collective chains on this thread; no one who claims to believe what he believes could possibly enjoy the exploits of, or condone what James Bond is as a character.

    Dear beast, you are pulling our legs surely. A country that is made up immigrants cant complain about his Afro-American heritage. If you want to send this foreigners 'home' you wouldn't have any sport to watch, no films to spank your monkey to and no roads, houses, or ships to travel and live upon. Oh yes and no music as well.

    But I think you're joking so give me six (as they say in your house) and pass my regards onto your farther and brother who are the same person of course.

    Come on beast what you said was bordering on a bit of skin prejudice wasn't it?

    I sure hope his post is deleted. I mean, everybody has the right to freedom of speech and is allowed to make their points, but by pulling the race card you're admitting you have no point to make. I'm going show some restraint and not make @00Beast look any more unintelligent than he has already managed to do.

    Congratulations, yanks. The best man won and America as well as the world is better for it.
  • I can't help thinking that it's the Republicans who are UnAmerican. Whenever it's not their guy in the White House, they stonewall, drag their heels, fillibuster... everything to stop the bills going through... Castro would be proud.

    When I turned on the TV this morning I felt such a relief! Congrats Americans (well, most of them anyway).

    I'm sad to see that there are still people in the XXI century growing up to be ignorants but hope springs eternal, they grow fewer by the day.

    <b>Racist bullshit removed</b>. @00Beast, you sure you're age 13 or above? That's the minimum age for using this community, if you didn't know already.

    I'm very glad Obama won. Good job Americans!

    Well, for the second time in four years, Obama won. He took a beating for a long time (there were a couple of hours where Romney was leading), but the American people made their decision and the right man is staying in office.

    This is a great thing.

    Our jobs will start coming back to the US, our troops will be returning home, and our economy will grow. Now that Obama's been given his second chance, he'll turn the country around and we'll be back on track as soon as possible.

    Though I'd love to see the man walk on hot coals, I have to give Romney some credit. He clearly got to enough people that he had the lead early on in the race and for some time after that, and even a couple of times after Obama pulled ahead. However, his showing wasn't good enough. If he runs in 4 years, maybe he'll win (during my lifetime, we've had a pattern of Republican/Bush, Democrat/Clinton, Republican/Bush II, Democrat/Obama), and if he does, he needs to dump each and every one of his stupid plans and focus on what the country really needs.

    Good work, Barack, and keep it up.

    10 REASONS WHY ROMNEY LOST

    On November 6th Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney with 50.3 percent of the popular vote and a surprising 303 electoral votes. Here are the top ten reasons Romney tanked.

    10. He didn't have Bill Clinton. Other than his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, Romney didn't have an effective surrogate. Obama had Joe Biden, Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton who commanded big crowds wherever he spoke. Romney didn't use George W. Bush, who retreated to the Cayman Islands.

    9. Mitt was wildly unpopular in Massachusetts, his home state. Obama carried Massachusetts by 23 percentage points. Romney claimed to have been an effective Governor who practiced bipartisanship, but the word got around that he had been an arrogant, dogmatic prick.

    8. Romney blew his chance to score points on Benghazi. Republicans thought the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, would give Romney an opportunity to paint the President as weak on national security. But Romney flubbed his chance in the second debate. Obama recalled, "The day after the attack... I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people... that this was an act of terror." Romney pounced, claiming the President had not called it "an act of terror." But the debate moderator, CNN's Candy Crowley agreed with the president's recollection.

    7. He was branded as elite and out-of-touch. Before the Republican convention, Obama ran ads labeling Romney as a "vulture capitalist," "part of the problem, not the solution." Then a tape was uncovered where Romney told donors, "47 percent of the people... who are victims... my job is not to worry about those people." This strengthened core support for Obama. Exit polls indicated that on the attribute, "a candidate who cares about people like me," Obama overwhelmed Romney.

    6. Women got wise to him. While the economy mattered to white female voters, it improved enough that they turned their attention to social issues: reproductive care, education and healthcare, in general. They trusted Obama on these issues and came to believe he was the candidate who would do the most for the middle class. Women favored Obama by 55 percent and unmarried women preferred him by 68 percent.

    5. He didn't understand Hispanics. Romney's strategy was predicated on massively carrying the white vote and he did secure 58 percent. But in certain areas of the country, particularly Florida, the Republican needed the votes of Hispanics and he didn't get them because he was against the DREAM act and unwisely suggest "self-deportation" for undocumented immigrants. 70 percent of Hispanics voted for Obama.

    4. The Economy recovered enough. After May, when Mitt Romney won enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination, he attacked the president for the state of the economy, "Obama isn't working." But the economy got better; thousands of new jobs were added and the unemployment rate declined from 8.5 percent to 7.9 percent. Romney's campaign slogan shifted to, "Believe in America." He said he had a "five point plan," to create jobs but Obama countered, "Romney has a one-point plan; make sure the folks at the top play by a different set of rules." Towards the end of the campaign Romney quit talking about the economy.

    3. Romney told one too many lies. After securing the Republican nomination for president, Romney waged an exceedingly dishonest campaign. An independent fact-checker, Politifact, reported two-thirds of Romney's statements ranged from "half-true" to blatant lies. The media didn't report all of these falsehoods but a week before the election Mitt was caught running an extremely deceptive auto bailout ad that torpedoed his chances in Ohio.

    2. God intervened. Romney's campaign for president was bracketed by hurricanes. First, Isaac threatened the Republican convention and lowered the ratings, and then Sandy disrupted the campaign and gave Obama an opportunity to display his competency as commander-in-chief. As the result of Sandy, Obama got kudos from Republican Governor Chris Christie and an endorsement from Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Obama had already gained momentum, after a disastrous first debate, and his response to Sandy pushed him ahead in most polls.

    1. No Republican can win at the national level. A year ago, when the slate of Republican presidential candidates formed, it was Mitt Romney versus the "seven dwarfs:" Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Paul, Pawlenty, Perry and Santorum. Romney struggled in the first primaries and had to turn on his money machine to defeat the others in the conclusive primaries. It was an indication that Romney was the best of a weak field and that Republicans were lukewarm about him.

    Romney had to tack to the right to secure his base and this turned off self-defined centrist voters. Obama overwhelmingly carried both liberal and centrist voters. The electorate has gotten wise to the Republican Party; they understand that they are radical conservatives -- out-of-touch with the middle class. Ultimately, that's why Romney lost. It indicates that no Republican presidential candidate would have been electable.
