Even if we didn't have the Electoral College and the popular vote determined the presidency, that's still too many people voting for batshiat insane lunatics every 4 years. I'll start to get more comfortable when that number gets closer and closer to 40%.

tallguywithglasseson: Petty and pathetic


For weeks, all I've heard from the GOP is how, as an Obama voter, my prime motivation is getting a welfare check handout from the government. And now our friends on the Right whine about petty and pathetic? Holier than thou only works if you're holier. You're not.

tallguywithglasseson: Just think it's stupid that anyone would try to make anything over someone getting 47.59% or 47.49% of the vote because of rounding. It's stupid, and so is anyone defending it.


I don't think anyone is "making anything" over the 47% - it's just amusing that a number the Romney campaign used as a weapon has come back to bite them in the ass. If that makes me stupid, fine. I've been called worse by better people.

I'm a Democrat, liberal and two-time Obama voter. Not whining, not upset.

Yeah, well other than the irony over the "47%" remark...

Imagine. If Obama were only a Republican, these results would represent a clear mandate to do whatever he wanted.

Instead, since he's a Democrat, it's only a squeaker of a victory, with no mandate. The only mandate to be found is the mandate for House Republicans to install the Romney-Ryan tax plan anyway.

Romney's 47% comment

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them...


Thanks

Two weeks ago, he was surrounded by an small army of Secret Service agents. He traveled in multiple-car motorcades.

And now, 14 days later, he's alone, at night, pumping his own gas.

The Why Not Guy: Good. Hopefully that means the GOP candidate will take 30.49% of the vote in 2016.


Personally, I'd prefer somebody 'in touch' and sane.

As a moderate libertarian, I felt this contest was Romney's to lose, and he managed it. I was cheering for Obama by the end.

Wouldn't the easiest thing be to finally acknowledge that Obama is a moderate Reagan Republican, as he has always been?

Obama is closing mental hospitals and unleashing hordes of mentally unstable people to commit crimes, and then pretend the prison system is a good substitute?

Obama is ignoring all of the science behind HIV/AIDS because he's convinced it won't affect straight people?

Obama added hundreds of thousands of government jobs?

St. Reagan isn't all the GOP has rewritten him to be. In all fairness, Jesus wasn't the anti-healthcare, f#$k the poor (they have bootstraps), hate thy neighbor guy they rewrote him to be either.


I was attempting to speak Republican. I have to admit that my vocabulary is limited, and my accent is terrible.

I know. 47% of the people in this country either want it to be a theocracy with limited rights for women and homosexuals, or they're okay with that so long as their taxes go down a little. It's insane.

As of this writing, President Barack Obama is at 50.73 percent, versus Mitt Romney's 47.59.

If Romney falls to 47.49 percent of the popular vote, his total will round down to 47 percent, which would be simply delicious.


Not sure I've seen someone gloat over rounding before. Petty and pathetic.
