    Yeah, totally. It's not as if the entire point of Israel is for the Jewish community to have their own sovereign state.

    Oh, wait.

    Anyway, the current top trending article on FOXNews.com "Five ways the mainstream media tipped the scales in favor of Obama"

    none of that makes any sense. here's a better in depth analysis:

    Well now GOP allies are trying to rev up to scare everybody about the 'fiscal cliff' by reverting to the old "China is going to own the US when it goes bankrupt" in the future ad they played during the 2010 elections. Just saw one on YouTube.:rolleyes:

    Well, the right result in the end.

    Here's hoping Obama can do more this term, fight harder for the little guy and the minorities. And hopefully his government will be a little more supportive of him.




    Some fine voting America, peace [face_flag]

    The "Puerto Rico thing" is irrelevant. For one thing, many suggest that it was a political maneuver by our incumbent governor to secure votes for himself by tying a plebiscite right on top of a general election, something that by all rights was ill advised by nearly everyone unless, of course, it was designed to boost the vote for himself and his party. Unfortunately, it seems it wasn't enough and he may lose (even by a small margin of 10k-15k voters) against his rival.

    Secondly, that plebiscite does not have any goodstanding from either the White House or -- more importantly -- the largely Republican Congress that historically does not support statehood for Puerto Rico. And the local opposition have repeatedly stated that the plebiscite is also invalid since the current colon - I mean, "Commonwealth" status was not represented in that plebiscite. So again, it all looks fairly irrelevant for the local statehooders as well as Congress.

    This night was better for the Democrats than I expected.

    No more Mitt Romney.
    No more Allen West.
    No more Joe Walsh.

    Republicans ONLY picked up Nebraska for a Senate seat... Democrats gain 3 seats... so net 2 for Democrats (including King).

    Republicans ONLY picked up Indiana and North Carolina in the Electoral College.

    Gay Marriage won... EVERYWHERE.

    Marijuana was completely legalized in 2 states.




    Now it's time to deal with the fiscal cliff (Bush tax cuts, Debt Ceiling, Unemployment Benefits, Funding the Government, the cuts from the old Debt Ceiling agreement, etc.)

    Immigration Reform is also very, very likely now.

    "ObamaCare" is here to stay, as are the rest of Obama's policy changes.

    SUPREME COURT... need I say more?

    (And I think 2014 will see the end of Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, and Paul Ryan)





    On foreign affairs, Turkey and the UK just said they're going into Syria.

    As an Iranian by descent, I don't think it's a surprise to any of you that I supported Obama in this. I think a war would have been certain under Romney. A war is still a possibility, mind you, but at least it's just that - a possibility.

    But to all of you who voted Democrat, congratulations on your victory and four more years. [face_flag]

    And from us in the rest of the world, congratulations on continuing to be a sane country. :p

    So, what aspect of the GOP will begin to implode first?

    Does the Tea Party double-down, or moderate?

    And when the hell are they going to call Florida? Also, margins really surprise me here, especially in Michigan and the closeness of Pennsylvania. Same with Ohio.

    Peace,

    While I voted third party, Obama at least interests me more. The part of my personality that enjoys experimenting cannot wait to see what 16 straight years of fiscally incompetent presidency does to the economy. While I certainly agree with Obama more than Romney, Obama's outlook of where money comes from and how to manage it is comparable to that of the average 7 year old child.

    A circle of life relationship between producers and consuers?

    Obama has been pretty buisness friendly, besideds calling them out when they screw the pooch he has had a pretty light hand. Like President Bush 41 and Clinton.

    Though I'm very pleased to see Obama win, I still remain utterly annoyed by the Electoral College (in 2016, they really should just hold the vote for President in the swing states), and had hope for a situation like 2000 that may have moved the needle on E.C. reform. Oh well. Very happy to see gay marriage pass in Maine & Maryland, the legalization of weed in Colorado & Washington, and Wisconsin electing the first openly gay person (Tammy Baldwin) to the U.S. Senate. Not happy though waking up today to see prop. 30 here in California is on its way to pass... the money that they say will go to education will be mismanged.

    In other news, Akin lost Missouri so decisively that the election was conceded before votes were tallied in St. Louis! He lost Springfield, which is our version of the Bible Belt.
