the Dems lose in WI. last year and they protest, cry, complain, demand recalls, make taxpayers spend millions. The GOP loses and the same Dems tell us we're supposed to "get over it" "deal with it" "grow up," etc. Amazing.

This is a VERY sad day for our Country! It does come as no suprise though. Ecspecially when you consider that this failure of a President gets the vote of the 47 percent of the people living off the Government and then you throw in the Uninformed, gullible people who only watch CBS, NBC and ABC and you've won the election. It just baffles me how uninformed Minnesotans really are. Look at how the states of ND, SD and Nebraska vote for the good of the Country. ANd Minnesotans vote for their own personal entitlements. A very bad situation!

Hey, palsar and kebu80, all I'm going to say to you is this: TWO-TERM President of the United States of America Barack Obama. Duly elected twice by a majority of American voters.

I wonder who Obama is going to blame this time around? He can't continue to spend money we don't have, he is going to have to reform entitlements, and he has a hostile House of Representatives to deal with. Looks like gridlock for a long time thankfully. Look for another recession early next year and no job growth. I know I won't be hiring anyone in the near future.

I'm going to have to change my identity on this web site to hopeful1. Truly we are blessed. God bless America for keeping the faith and giving President Obama another four years to keep the change going!

Just watch our country go down the toilet even faster now that Obama doesn't have to mind his p's and q's to get reelected. It's a sad sad day for our country... God save us all.

What is HUGE is that Obama will now be responsible for any Supreme Court justices during the next 4 years. It is expected that at least one of the right leaning judges will likely be replaced. This will turn the court to left leaning and have significant implications.

Poor Barry didn't even want to win. He didn't count on the Mormon bigotry suppressing Romney's turnout enough to make up for his 10 million vote loss from 2008. Now he has to go back and deal with his messes. Good luck with that $20 trillion debt, the fiscal cliff, Muslim Brotherhood, flaming Europe, 85% of doctors retiring, and small business closing up shop!

paulus - great points, but remember the truth is not part of Obama agenda. There will be no blame assigned now because everything he did was the correct thing to do. It just takes "more time and money" to turn things around, when in fact all his policy actions are precisely the opposite of what is needed to generate job growth, energy, etc in the free market. Remember, the free market, economic, fiscal, Constitutional, energy etc. IGNORANT are now the majority. They won't get it until they're told the wait for their MRI appointment to diagnose their cancer is 6 months and gas cost $5 a gallon.
