I think the real story here is that Obama won, but he's got no mandate," Krauthammer declared. "He won by going very small, very negative, and we are left as a country exactly where we started, but a little bit worse off.

if by 'negative' you mean 'talking about Romney's actual record' then yeah - it was 'negative'. Face it guys, you lost because Romney was such a horrific candidate. move back to the center, tell the religious nutballs to STFU and stop trying to put sociopaths into the white house and then maybe you can salvage something out of the wreckage.

That's the thing. You have to kind of think that Republicans are waking up this morning, looking at Nate Silver, and then looking at Fox News and other right wing talking heads, and they might start realizing that facts can not be trumped by feelings. And, maybe they are starting to see the hazards of living in a bubble of information that pushes a dying ideology over a hard and easily provable reality.

None of the presdiential wins of the past twelve years, with the exception of 2008, can be considered a mandate. The thing is, the repubs have redefined the word mandate to mean "We won by the tinest of margins but a win's a win and we will proceed to do exactly what we pleae whatever the American people thinks of it." By that definition, Obama has a mandate.

Message to the repubs: The big question is: what's next? Will you push the government over the fiscal cliff to punish America for voting against you? Or will you come to your senses and pitch in to make things better? Keep in mind that there will be very little in terms of bipartisan offers coming from the Democrats this time around. We tried that and learned our lesson: there's no point in holding out the hand of friendship to someone determined to be your enemy. This time the terms will be more or less dictated by the Democrats with little room for compromise; take it or leave it. The good news is that the Democrats are grown-ups, ready to make painful changes in programs they hold dear and realistic enough to see the necessity of maintaining programs they find distasteful (that is, after all, why we're still in Afghanistan), all in the name of fiscal responsibility and political realism. Can you do the same? Will you? Because frankly, it's going to happen with or without your participation. You can either come to your senses and rejoin normal political culture, or you can further marginalize yourselves and ultimately cease to exist, or, at best, linger on as a local level parody of what a political party looks like.

Now then, it would be nice if you repubs would all shut the fark up for a couple of days. Mommy and Daddy would like to take a little nap and we've had quite enough of your incessant whining. Last time we were too busy saving the country from your incompetence and fiscal malfeasance to deal with your properly but we're done coddling you. If it's a spanking you want, it's a spanking you'll get.

Now go stand in the corner and think about what you did.

Anybody remember in the Old Testament, when Pharaoh was more than happy to free the Jews, but God "hardened his heart" so that he could demonstrate his wrath and power?

I'm not a particularly pious man, but as a scientist, that's my professional conclusion, because it's the only thing that makes any farking sense anymore. These self-righteous bozos are willing to throw this country over a cliff--not to be proven right, but to keep the other guy from being right. There is absolutely no reason for these Republican hard-line tactics from a political perspective. In fact, most of the far right Tea Partiers and rape-lovers were thrown out, and their derp cost them the Presidency.

But they just can't see it. So, I'm going with God, and warning against a storm of wrath of Biblical proportions.

From a friends sister:
I had to vote for Romney. I voted for Ron Paul 4 years ago and look how that turned out. But now that I know the majority of Americans really ARE stupid, and 4 years ago wasn't just a fluke, I will go back to voting my conscience.

...And we're back in reality.
Look at the conservative projections on what Obama. Still got your guns? yup. so that one is wrong. Taxes up? Nope, that one is wrong. Death panels? End of democracy? Not so much. He's not that bad, if you quit hating him and started working WITH him, things will be better.

I think what really chaffs the Rightyies is that they know things will be better despite them and after convincing themselves that only they are smart enough to get it right, having to admit the other side ISN'T full of idiots kills them.

They would rather be correct and destroy everything than admit being wrong and be successful.

I don't know how the studio-to-studio transmission works, but I'd like to think that Dick sees a full-body shot of Megan in his monitor. She's sitting in her chair, wearing a short skirt, with bare legs and open-toed pumps. Her feet don't quite reach the floor, and she's letting one shoe slooooowly slip down, exposing her smooth arches, until it's just about to fall off, and then she crunches her toes, snapping the shoe back up with a slap against her bare foot. She repeats this over and over. Dick is trying furiously to remember what spin he's putting on the numbers, but oh sweet jesus there she goes again, just another inch and he'd see her whole foot, but no. SNAP. Up goes the shoe again. What was he talking about? Florida. Yeah, that's right, see, only 24% of the precincts are reporting in and oh my god there it goes again, look at those toes, oh how good they'd taste...

Grungehamster: The best is Dick Morris. He went into last night predicting Romney would win 325 to 213, and he called this potential result a landslide victory. Now he's written his review of the election in what looks like a 332 to 206 result (Obama is ahead in Florida with most of the outstanding vote in Miami-Dade), and he categorizes it as Obama pulling off a squeaker.

Amazing what you will believe when you're getting paid to spout it.

The wishful thinking needs to stop. The president has made it clear even before his first election that he wants a Grand Bargain. Republicans will eventually stop taking "yes" for an answer and the president will fark over his base and most of the country in a pathetic effort to be a "uniter."

The problem is that exactly the opposite is true.

Some people that work in science say that disciplines advance one death at a time. Something like that is happening here. Wedge issues like gay marriage are going to become less affective as time goes by because it's only the oldsters that show it to be a problem. Maybe some true conservatism like we had before big money politics took off in 1980 will come back. It would be nice to get REAL debate and not herpaderp wedge issue talk.

Don't expect the GOP for a second to recognize that the voters picked the Democrats. They're going to go further to the right and become even more intransigent if they can.

There will be no movement to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich so they will expire for everyone. The fiscal cliff will end with the automatic cuts. And we still have a farm bill that will never get passed, Medicare payments to doctors which will never get passed and we hit a deficit ceiling in March.

This Krauthammer guy seems smart. Let's take a look at his track record

"KRAUTHAMMER: People are talking about how difficult and narrow the Romney path is. I think it's not. You've got to start with one thing -- he's going to keep a solid South. I have every confidence he's going to win in Florida, in North Carolina and Virginia.

(1) He can do Ohio plus New Hampshire. New Hampshire's a dead heat. Ohio's extremely close, but the intensity is with Romney and also Republicans tend to be somewhat undercounted in the polls anyway. If Romney does that, he wins.

(2) If not Ohio, he can do it through Colorado plus Wisconsin. Colorado's a dead heat; Wisconsin, he's behind. But, Wisconsin has been solidly Republican for the last two years, through the midterm elections and three recalls. So they're organized and they've got a lot intensity, and they have the favorite son, Paul Ryan."

'Quite bright,' eh? I think y'all need to do something about your 'minority problem' before 2050 rolls around. Unless you want to lose the electoral votes in Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, and Florida, that is.

Denial is the first stage of grieving Charles. It's going to be a long ride.

The electorate is moving to the left and last night was the very last chance for the conservative agenda.

Boehner last night basically said the same thing. If the republicans continue to break even further to the right 2014 is going to be a bloodbath and maybe the Tea Party/Evengelicals will finally break off and there can be a real alternative again.

Republican Math:
2004: 286 EV with 50.7% of popular vote (Kerry got 48.3%) = Mandate
2012: 300 EV with 50.3% of the popular vote (Romney got 48.1%) ≠ Mandate
Additionally, Gary Johnson got 1% of the vote, which can most likely be attributed to upset right wing voters, and Jill Stein .3% which is lower then Nader in 2008 who had .56% of the vote.

I always thought Charles Krauthammer was an animatronic mannequin.
