I sense that snydergal is unaware of the plethora of issues facing the US. But that, sadly, was the voters choice. Socailist answers are not workable & have been proven so. Art Rafferty has published proof that the way to handle this fiscal crisis is not the newest voters way.
Does anyone ever track down these issues???

Or is it just vote on a hunch or a gut feeling.???

The 47% of people are those who do NOT pay any tax...why would they care about a deficit??

No skin in the game. Its free!

Here we go again...do your homework and check the numbers...the 47% is made up of Social Security recipients & those who receive Medicare and Medicaid...ONLY 18% of the 47% require direct assistance from the government in food stamps and monitary assistance. For God's sake, quite listening to the liars on faux news...you parrot the lies, believe them, and never bother to check the facts...you label 47% of Americans as freeloaders...SO...YOUR GRANDMA IS A FREELOADER IF SHE GETS SS & MEDICARE!

Romney lost for probably many reasons, including being more afraid of the opportunities he offered than the fear of the damage Obama promises to do.

Romney lost the election because he ran on the Republican ticket.

Republicans have proven nothing but incompetent with their "conservative" ideology from 1996-2008 that delivered a banking/financial/housing meltdown and the Great 2008 Recession based on the same mistakes made in the the Great GOP Depression of 20-20's.

Lot of bad Republican history, bad actions, and bad Republican results for Romney to be associated with.

Oh, and Romney didn't know where the Middle Class lived.... America.

CRY ME A RIVER......MID TERM ELECTIONS WILL BE IN 2 YEARS FOR THE U.S. HOUSE AND SENATE AND IF THE PARTY OF NO CONTINUES TO BE THE PARTY OF NO WE WILL SEE THE DEMOCRATS TAKE CONTROL OF BOTH HOUSES IN 2014.

GOD HAS SPOKEN AND HIS WILL WAS DONE IN THE RE-ELECTION OF PRESIDENT OBAMA.

you are speaking of the same Obama that said at his election that if the unemployment is not downto 5% he will not seek a second term??
The same fellow who did not submit a budget to Congress( supposed to every year)?
That guy who said that no one built their own business but the others did with the roads, etc?
The guy who told the world that the day of USA exceptionalism was gone??? The one who watched while our Libya people died...???

I bet he now has to work because he can't campign

As a relic of the past, sparrowgt needs to go the way of the dinosaur...this nation is changing rapidly, and if people like you don't evolve and move forward with us, then you are going to become the laughing-stock minority...un-American and anti-democracy rhetoric has no place in the dialogue today...you speak like a redneck racist, someone who has left reality behind, who cannot accept that your party of "NO" is the ONLY reason for the problems we've faced these past 4 years. Deal with it!!

THE ELECTION IS OVER, THE IDIOTS LOST SO YOU CAN STOP WITH ALL OF THE REPUBLICAN / T-PARTY TALKING POINT LIES THAT HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO BE LIES BY NON-PARTISAN FACT CHECKERS. THE T-PARTY LOST SEATS IN THE HOUSE AND THE DEMS GAINED, THE T-PARTY LOST SEATS IN THE SENATE AND THE DEMS. GAIND. IF THE T-PUBS CONTINUE TO OBSTRUCT AMERICA THEY WILL BE NO MORE IN 2014. WANNA BET?

Romney did not win because most folks see him as an elitist, who is just pretending to like ordinary people. He is a wealthy snob. $400,000,000 in his pocket and he didn't have the decency to pay for his own campaign. Romney/Ryan lost because they are so out of touch with the reality of everyday Americans lives, that they cannot relate to the populace. Besides, have you ever looked at the beliefs of Mormons? Check it out, and if Romney really believes that stuff, then he is obviously gullible.

Let's see...if you lie to the American people, cannot be honest about your tax issues, pander to your wealthy "owners", consider 47% of Americans as "common people" not worth your concern, propose preemptive strikes on other nations, and so much more, then you probably won't become POTUS. Over 70 million people voted yesterday, and every single American should now support, pray for, encourage and defend President Obama...for, in fact, he is the president of ALL Americans.
