wraithmare: Once again, the US shows the rest of the world how to handle a change (or in this case not) of power. My only hope is the Republican party learns from this and jettisons the crazies and fundies and Tea Partiers making them a laughing stock. I'm an independent and vote Democratic because the Republican party has strayed so far from its ideals it is insane. I would like a choice on election day, I really do, but the GOP gives me none. I would not vote for anyone who sees American through such a filter of hate.


I dont see it happening. A whole lot of derp out there. Plus, ok, it isn't like most states were a curb stomp 70/30 win for the Dems. I think the derpers will if anything think they didn't derp hard enough, and Mitt was a RINO candidate.

On the other hand the moment downtown Seattle heard it called for Obama, spontaneous cheers went up from every bar within earshot. Its like the Rose Bowl win down here.

Mouldy Squid: Congratulations. We Canadians are happy for you. Perhaps now you can arrest your slide into idiocy and theocracy.


You know, we keep trying. Maybe this time we actually made a difference. Don't give up on us, please. My family emigrated from Canada (Quebec...maybe that doesn't count?) in the 1800s. If R-Money had won, I would have taken advantage of our family's roots and done the immigration thing. Thankfully, we don't have to!

I love my country, but I hate politicians. I want a Queen/King and Parliament. I'm sick of going through two years of "electioneering" in a President's first term just to get a second term. You guys have done it the right way. But we're stuck with a "two-party system" and that's why we will NEVER have the option you do.

Klopfer: Maybe someone should check on Romney to make sure he didn't kill himself.


I'm sure the his murder suicide pack with Karl rove has begun.

Mrs. Beasley: I was in a restaurant tonight where they had the election coverage going on in the bar. Every time there was a cheer, I went into the bar and asked what was going on.

Then I started to cry...because...WE WON.

We farking WON.

Probably the best election results since I got the vote when I was 18...in 1972...and I have voted in every goddamn single election since then.

If "people" tell you your vote doesn't matter, just whoop them upside the head and tell them to go to Hell. We WON. We won because we didn't buy into R-money's flip-flopping, lies, and Karl Rove's beaucoup bucks trying to buy this election.

Hear me well. I'm 62 years old and cried when the results came in.

And, in our state, Marriage Equality passed, by a huge margin! My daughter and her partner of 8 years can now get married!

(As Mother of the Bride, I say we're going to have a HUGE party.) Yes.

Thank you to EVERYONE who voted. Those who didn't...you don't get to biatch. You are losers.

My daughter, her partner, me, and the rest of the country thank you for your votes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love you all. For forever.


Congratulations to your state, and to your daughter :)

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: coco ebert: carnifex2005: this is how Nate Silver's projection have worked out so far...

[i.imgur.com image 600x450]

Link.

This really is the year of Nate Silver. Not only are people following races, but they're closely following his following of the races.

While I love Nate, you know what this means right? The next cycle is going to entirely focus on buying Silver off, discrediting Silver, or marginalizing him in some other way.


The latter has started already. See: Republicans' smear

To everyone in America that voted for human decency and ethical and responsible governance, and against greed, hate, arrogance, sociopathy and cruelty, THANK YOU.

We fought the good fight and won. The war isn't over, but we won several major battles today.

Bless you all.

/also, yay alcohol
 
2012-11-07 12:41:22 AM  
I'm going to be honest. What I liked most about winning this so epically is that it happened over a few hours. But not so quickly I panicked.
 
2012-11-07 12:41:34 AM  

Iceberg659: Just concede, dude. It's over. I know you've been running for president your whole life and this is the closest you will ever get to achieving that dream but sometimes you've just got to let go. Yeah it sucks that your dad's ghost is probably super disappointed in you but you can't change things now. You're making things more awkward than they need to be.


The Romneybot can compute more probabilities than you mere humans can. According to the Romneybot's calculations there still is a statistical chance. The Romneybot won't concede until there is no statistical probability of loss.

Either that or the Romneybot does not compute.
 
2012-11-07 12:42:46 AM  
Has anyone mentioned that Michele Bachmann's challenger, Jim Graves, has taken a small lead?
 
2012-11-07 12:43:55 AM  
Well, off to troll my conservative, hate-filled, judgmental family members on Facebook.

cretinbob: jaylectricity: cretinbob: jaylectricity: Can we please stop gloating about every damn little thing? Seriously, 14% reporting and people are assuming a win.

[24.media.tumblr.com image 470x570]

I want her husband to win! I'm just saying that all I see is people getting all crazy and gloating about shiat that they didn't do.

It's like, "HOLLA, MY VEGETABLES ARE STILL FRESH TWO DAYS AFTER I PUT THEM IN MY PRODUCE DRAWER!"

Oh stop. Relax. I have you as a favorite for a reason.

It's almost over.


Thanks for letting me vent.

Methinks he'll divide by zero on stage and leak his cooling fluids in his outer clothing layers.

CNN is saying that Obama just won Virgina also. Wasn't expecting that.
 
2012-11-07 12:48:58 AM  
Romney to speak at 12:55.

If she goes, I will go with reasonably satisfied with this election to downright cheerful.

SuperNinjaToad: The saddest part about the Republican party is once all the butthurt is over they will NOT learn from their mistakes.
They lost because of their extremist views PERIOD!!!
I'm afraid that instead of moving closer to the center to stay competitive, they will instead become even more extremist and move even further to the right!!


Yes, of course. And then they will go extinct like the Whigs and the dodos.
 
2012-11-07 12:51:31 AM  

sid244: lifeform3: sid244: Fox News is calling Obama but CNN hasn't. Is Fox News doing what Romney won't? Dude, you lost, get over it.

CNN called Obama like an hour ago.

I was going the websites' main page only. Yes, CNN did call it a while ago.


As a Canadian I wasn't sure which feed to watch. I got hooked in by CNN's touch-screens, Empire State Building colours, and of course James Carville (dude cracks me up). They also seem to have a good balance of Dems and Republicans on their panel. The guy working the touch-screens (don't know his name) was particularly good at keeping on top of everything.

I needs me some popcorn for the concession.

/Yeah, that's the joke. Sorry.

That's why he wears the magic underwear.

My only complaint about tonight is that Mike Coffman is still somehow managing to win. Gerry-mandered congressional districts need to be stopped.

He's actually being pretty gracious about it.
 
2012-11-07 12:58:14 AM  
I don't know why they haven't called VA. State Board of Elections have had 100% reporting for half an hour almost, with Obama with a 60,000+ lead.

Hopefully we can get filibuster reform in the senate, especially with potential supreme court vacancies coming up.
 
2012-11-07 01:00:57 AM  
Maybe this is the wake up call that the Republican party needs to quit drifting farther and farther right. Looks like a Moderate Statesman type politician is what America wants. The people have spoken!
 
2012-11-07 01:01:07 AM

Summoner101: vonschiller: Freeperland is freaking the fark out.

I just didn't expect this; I have been listening to Dick Morris and Rush too much....

Its over. I had so much hope this nightmare was about to be over. Screw em all. GOP hitched it stars to the middle and again it didn'tn work. WHEN THE HELL ARE THEY EVER GOING TO LEARN?

Good luck freepers..
I am going to bed.Tonight has become a worst case scenario.Romney will lose in my opinion and the senate losses seem to be devastating. Every race that seemed to be close is going to Obama and the democrats. I congratulate them...Tomorrow I will try to figure out where the Republican party is headed and see if can be resurrected.
I know that in the future if we put two white men on the presidential ballots then we we will suffer the same ignominy of defeat. I cannot concieve that Obamacare will become the law of the land .However the people have spoken and I will accept their decision.

Nate Silver and Intrade are right.

I guess it would be horrible to have a Rep. businessman that might have some idea how to turn the country around even if he was liberal huh? Much better to have an Islamic gay President that allows Americans to be killed while he watches on TV....

We were so close to pulling the country back from the edge. Now were facing the Dark Ages once again. The Islamasts are in full rejoice mode tonight. Possibly, a great number are relocating to the USA. Nothing will be standing in their way.

Are we seeing self-analysis out of the Freepers? Are they evolving?

Da freekers can't evolve because evolution is a lie.

Note: edited to remove names, but otherwise left as posted

"Oh yeah.... All you pro Obama folks work hard and pay your taxes like good little hippies cuz tonight you just raised the unemployment rate another 3%. Somebody is gonna have to pay for our unemployment. And when you power starts going out because stupid ass wind mills and solar panels can't do the job and natural gas prices go thru the roof I don't wanna hear a farking thing.. You did it to yourselves ... So enjoy your free health care and Obama phones while I figure out how the fark to provide for my family.."

"Spoken well (name removed) hope all them proud Obama supporters enjoy this no good for nothing country"

"Dumbass Buckeyes!"

"Might be time to leave the country.. He isn't my president!!"

"I bet Obama will still be blaming Bush throughout the next four years of his failed leadership."

"we have the right to biatch we voted but sure as hell not for him.."

"Dont know about you all, but I think its time to leave (state removed)!!!!!"

"Canada open the borders lots of people are going to start running!!"

"Cannot believe that 'socialist' won again..."

What an enjoyable night. The Party of Hate and Ignorance got its teeth kicked in. C

Can't wait to see the GOP get destroyed in 2016! And it will because Republicans are incapable of real change. The same extremists and obstructionists and creationists and misogynists and birthers and flat earthers and racists will still be calling the GOP shots four years from now.

So much THIS.

I gotta wonder what kind of derpish regrouping they're planning on rallying around next year.

They got served. I don't care how "close" this election was.

Conservative values aren't in vogue as much as they think they are.
