The only thing left that worries me is the extreme right will see this loss and decide their only recourse is to become more extreme.
hulk hogan meat shoes: Is there a better metaphor for America than Prometheus? Eternally punished, eternally suffering, having its liver eaten every day only to see it respawn overnight and have to endure the process yet again.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: If Obama wins, I'm going to be incredibly happy, not just for the political ramifications, but for the man himself. This is a guy who was yelled at during the State of the Union. This was a guy that prominent members of his opposition said wasn't an American citizen, and only won in 2008 because of blah people on welfare. His first term was an unprecedented glimpse into just how crazy half of America is.And if he wins again tonight, we're sending a message that while we're not the loudest, we non-crazies got your back, Bronco.
THANK YOU OHIO!!!!!!
FOUR MORE YEARS!!NOW CRUSH THE OBSTRUCTIONIST RTARDS!
Darth_Lukecash: Fox is blaming everyone for not "Getting it"Seriously.Women are too hung up about their "Reproductive Rights" and not about fiscal responsibility.
Demetrius: How is Allen West doing???
Lost Thought 00: Akin doing absolutely nothing to help his future electoral chances
TommyymmoT: It baffles me, that the most dirt poor sections of the country, the ones with the very least to gain, and the most to lose, are voting for Romney.

Gwendolyn: Christie made the play with Obama so he can run in 2016. It was a smart move. He aligned himself with a liked President in his state and made sure the Republican field was open next time. He's fat not stupid.
Palmer Eldritch: Let's start writing the Newsflash headline. My suggestion:NATE SILVER WINS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONfeel free to steal it, anyone.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Darth_Lukecash: You know, had the Republicans actually allowed Warren to take up her position Obama nominated her for, Brown might have kept her seat.That's the beautiful thing about it. Now she's got a national stage, and we could conceivably see a Pressident Warren in the future.
AverageAmericanGuy: This shiat is so rigged. Romney is clearly showing a strong lead in the popular vote. But the vote counters are showing Obama leading.It's only democracy if a Democrat is winning, I guess.

ignatius_crumbcake: The Freepers are farking surprised. Shocked, angry, or even a Randian bemusement I could see, but surprised? Everyone who can count to 10 without using Jesus as a number has been telling them that Obama will win, and now they act surprised?This thread is pretty fun.This one is fresh but shaping up to be good.

I harbor jealousy and resentment for those who understand mathematics better than I do.
organizmx: In Southern Florida and Northern Virginia, two heavily Democratic areas in two important swing states, people are STILL waiting in line - for up to four hours. They say Obama's reelection chances may hinge on how long people are willing to wait. How the hell does this happen in 2012 in America?

Chabash: Okay Farkers, I need a good reply to this that completely cuts away the argument of the person that posted this statement."I am still astonished and embarrassed that my home states of Washington and Oregon consistently choose statism over freedom. What happened to the pioneering spirit, the individual responsibility and self-reliance that settled and founded these states?"
Pray 4 Mojo: When do we get to re-hash the recent Electoral College thread? The one with all the liberal/big city folks talking about how it's time to do away the crutch that the derp infested fly-over States (and Republicans) need to compete in the election?It ain't over... but it's looking like you might want to rethink your position sparky.
Iceberg659: Yes! Yes! Freepers are mad at Fox for some reason now. Glorious.

Stoutpants: Summoner101: Pastor of Muppets: The fact that it takes people 3-4 or more hours in line to vote in 21st century America is shameful.To those in VA and FL still standing in line at nearly 11pm EDT, you guys are awesome.Well, you can have the more tedious process, but more reliable paper ballots, or you can have the quicker but less reliable electronic voting machines.Why they haven't made a reliable electronic voting machine with paper ballot receipt, I have no idea.I had a paper ballot that was fed into a scantron. It's like a receipt in reverse.

If the panhandle trends 75% red, that's probably another 70-80K Romney votes. That's probably the only reason the state's too close to call now, what with Miami-Dade being the only other county that's slow in coming.

As the only "blue" in the office (of 20) who predicted an Obama win--and landslide, it might be hard to keep a straight face tomorrow morning, if things continue the way they are.Anyone else in the same boat? Red or blue?Exact same boat. I'm in MO at the moment working for a large defense contractor....guess which side of things they fell on....However, I will enjoy it immensely. The only problem is wondering how people who are ostensibly good at math could have thought without a shadow of a doubt that Romney was getting 320+ EVs
vonschiller: Freeperland is freaking the fark out....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....
