    I dunno, it's still conceivable that the GOP will look at the fairly close popular vote and think that maybe they could pull off a win if they get even more extreme? :oldrazz:

    It wasn't a total blowout, although Obama winning the EC soundly is an interesting observation. I'm not entirely sure what that means in terms of general support. I would actually think the EC would favor smaller, more rural (ie, more red) states?

    Nate Silver definitely is lucky, and going to have some ppl eating humble pie. Obama just grabbed Virginia, and will probably win Florida as well. By the time this is all finished he will have over 330, and be atleast 1 million ahead in the popular vote.

    Now that it's all over, time to go to sleep or something, lol. Also, it was a good speech by Obama. Now I just hope he puts that into practice, because some big things are coming up that need a solid decision on.:wall: <-- Describes what I'll be doing if our country takes another credit hit because we refuse to compromise over taxation of the rich.

    Ugh, from the moment Obama won people on my facebook have been posting messages and video calling Obama the anti-christ, and decrying him as Hitler and such. I'm a Christian (well I have a few differing beliefs but I'm primarily Christian), but am I missing something here? When did suddenly Obama become the Anti-Christ and when could said Anti-Christ become so easily seen?

    Back on topic, Fox news still interesting to watch or did they finally let it go that Obama won?

    Well, this isn't the first time Dick Morris was proven drastically wrong about one of his political predictions. After all, he wrote an entire book in 2005 about who the Presidential Candidates would be in the 2008 Presidential election:

    That speech Obama gave was terrific. Even better is the knowledge that Karl Rove is in a darken room somewhere, trying in vain to find a loophole in the EC that would give Romney the victory. :funny:

    Florida voted for Obama in 2008 and he got an increase in the Latino vote. So, it's not too shocking. Also, 8 million people voted in Florida. The biggest next to California. People give the State a lot of crap but they sure showed up and made themselves heard.

    I think he became the anti-christ somewere after they tried to prove he wasn't a US citizen, but before they the Muslim talk. No, maybe after both of those, but before he was a manchurian candidate. Wait, wait, before the manchurian candidate, but after they said he wanted to implement sharia law.

    Gosh darn it, I failed my racist, let's do everything in our power to devalue the life of a fellow American, history. It's such a hard subject, I can't follow most of the material.

    That first one doesn't sound too bad...

    Not that Obama is anti-Christian anyways... but Christianity (nor any other religion) has any place in government or politics anyways. The faster everyone realizes this, the faster we can move on to being a truly free society.

    8 million voters and they kept the polls open till 10pm. They're not gonna over-work the staff. Especially since it doesn't really matter anymore. Obama won.

    I heard that also and was like, "what?" There were a couple of other times where he seemed to change the word in the middle of speaking and it sounded weird.

    I was so fired up last night not just because of the Obama win but from watching Fox. They down played every aspect of Obama's win. There was no hiding the hatred these people have for this man while failing to see it as a victory for the will of the people.

    While I was watching Fox, I couldn't help but imagine the people there must see Obama as Chancellor Palpatine giving his speech to the Senate, destroying the republic and establishing the empire. lol:jedi

    You can thank Republican Governor Rick Scott for this mess. He cut early voting short and refused to extend it. No damn reason why people needed to be out in line at 11 PM to vote.

    I couldn't help myself last and flipped to FOX News after President Obama won. It was priceless!

    I hope the GOP takes a long, hard look at themselves. They cannot continue to be a party of hatred or a party of no. I fear that they're going to resort to the same sad tactics and excuses for why they lost though. (Romney wasn't "conservative" enough. It's all Chris Christie's fault. The Democrats conjured up a hurricane to win and that's not fair!)
