Isn't it interesting that the auto workers were not misled by Republican lies, while the coal companies, once again, convinced the poor people of Appalachia to vote against their own interests? Why do we continue to repeat the mistakes of the past?
Now is the time for all Obama haters to take down their signs about the war on coal and get into the 21st century, get retrained and get a job that matters for the future.
America has spoken loud and clear, you are doing a great job, President Obama!
The election was a message to Republicans to stop stonewalling everything President Obama tries to do in Congress. You had your two shots at it with President Bush, so now let President Obama complete his two terms by showing a reasonable amount of cooperation.
It appears to me that those who are socialist or are supporting socialism are those who are most subject to becoming victims of social Darwinism.
I will always thank the Democratic Party for giving us Barack Hussein Obama.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, after chopping Romney off at the knees after Superstorm Sandy, will be the GOP presidential candidate in 2016, opposed by Hillary Clinton. That will be a close race, and remember you heard it here first.
One thing we know for sure, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is the south end of a northbound horse.
To all those who are gloating and smiling over the outcome of the election, there is an old saying: "those who laugh last laugh the best". Let's see who is laughing during the next four years and who is crying. Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
The best thing to do with the fiscal cliff is to just let it happen. We cannot talk about reducing our deficit and then do nothing about it. This would be a really big step in getting our fiscal house in order. It cannot be done without sacrifice and pain. A modest amount now or an avalanche of it later. I have no hope politicians will actually do the right thing.
Now that the election is over we can get back to focusing on our rapid descent into the economic abyss.
All these bozos on TV worrying about Obama's second term hurting the coal industry all sport the "Friends of Coal" stickers or signs. That organization is the biggest con ever run on coal miners, as it has helped absolutely no miner, just coal mine owners and operators. How gullible can these people get?
Now that the media has successfully gotten President Obama re-elected by suppressing anything remotely damaging to him and the Democrats, would it be possible for them to go back to actually reporting both good and bad news for the next year or so until the next campaign begins?
