    So I guess all the early polls.................

    were absolutely spot on. You know, the polls that were said to be inaccurate because they were using the 2008 results models. I guess the professional pollsters did indeed know what they were doing.

    Shocking.

    No they weren't. Both sides played up this 'close' election for the sake of ratings. They called states at 0%, it no longer matters what the polls said, it never actually mattered, because the media kept them close enough to sucker us into spending money, either to donate to candidates or watch their commercials and waste money at those places as well...

    We got sucker punched, anyone in the media that predicted this outside of 2% or six electoral votes should be lined up and shot...

    Eh, I had no skin in the game this time. So I am not emotional about it either way. Both candidates sucked ass. Too bad the GOP doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to actually back a true conservative.

    A true conservative is not viable with the moderate populace. God knows I'd love to see one, WITH A FOREIGN POLICY...

    The polls nailed it this time around, no doubt about it. Wasn't really that close.

    What the Repubs are doing is not working. I think a true conservative would have had a better chance than a liberal Mormon Yankee from Massachusetts -- there would have been a more obvious difference between the two candidates.

    The Repubs -- maybe not Mitt himself -- keep alienating women and minorities. That makes it a lot harder to win. There's a lot Americans agree on but the bozos on the left and the right prefer to focus on wedge issues that don't affect most.

    Didn't ya hear? They get free birth control now, they can boink away without any worries; and kill any potential offspring with fewer worries.... Maybe Wright was right, God $#@! America! Well at least Allah, ok, that's actually a joke...
