    Gore Bane got it exactly correct.
    If the 11/6/12 prez vote count was not “majority fraud”…
    then Obama did, indeed, fool the majority of voters who proved to be Fooled Again.
    …but it took a Democrat Party, the Unions and the Leftwing Internet plus an adoring MSM and daily tons of Propaganda, mostly false, and wicked Personal Destruction of the character of the GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, who had a provable sterling and decent and compassionate record.

    You apparently are forgetting that except for Carter, the republicans held the white house from 1969 to 1992. America is in the worst fiscal condition in our history and neither political party is proposing anything other than very temporary, ineffectual quick fixes to make people feel good. Obama’s tax increases are meaningless in a fiscal sense and all the other dialog is to deal with entitlements and real change of tax codes LATER. In politispeak that means the proverbial can just got kicked again. I’m not interested in blame, I’m interested in real proposals and plans that will reverse our fiscal situation. So far it’s all temporary and insignificant long term, from either party. Personally I find the concept that the government is smarter than we are and knows what’s best for us an insult to our collective intelligence.
    It’s up to us to hammer our representatives to sit down face to face and work this out. If not, you deserve what you settle for.

    @ansonia,
    yes, let’s look back 4 years ago today. Credit freeze, major banks/brokerages declaring bankruptcy overnight. Job losses at > 700,000 per month, economy in free fall.

    doesn’t sound like today, does it?

    No. That’s our electoral college, not the people’s votes.

    @1opinion…My answer is that the electoral vote IS NOT IN OPPOSITION…..it is the balance to mob vote counts.
    -
    By the Numbers:
    popular vote won by Obama by 50.6% to Romney’s 47.8%
    electoral vote………. Obama by 61.7% to Romney’s 38.2%
    the electoral college state votes give small population states an equal voice to the bigger population states.

    I think mayhaps Mr. Romney was not able to fool enough of the people.

    Examples: Emergency room care is free. “Corporations are people, my friend.” “America is right, and you are wrong.” “I’ll bet you ten thousand dollars.” “Chrysler is sending all Jeep manufacturing to China.” “I’ll create 12 million jobs.” “The government does not create jobs.” “I’ll lower taxes across the board by 20%. It’s revenue-neutral.” There’s much more, but you get the picture.

    I will agree that Mr. Obama would be far from my first choice, which was John Huntsman in this particular race. But I could not bring myself to vote for someone who could piss off England, Spain, and Israel all in one week to be the one who has to decide whether to negotiate or to go to war.

    The thing is Obama knows what he is doing but what he thinks is right for the country isn’t.

    The line goes:
    .
    You can fool all of the people some of the time.
    You can fool some of the people all of the time.
    But you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
    .
    So here’s Mr. Ramirez misquoting one of our greatest presidents. Some Patriot he is!
    .
    And if you want to know exactly how many of the people it is that are the some that you can fool all of the time, look at W’s popularity polls in 2008 His numbers were LOW! Most rats had run from the ship and most Righties had taken to saying “I’m not a Republican, I’m a Conservative! Bush is not a Conservative, he’s a Republican!” Yet there were about 16% of the people who still thought he was doing a bang up job!
    .
    And to those of you who are trying to say that Obama fooled people… The Republicans net LOST seats in Washington! They were expecting to take control of the Senate!
    .
    You got thumped up and down the ticket! Ryan’s own congressional district didn’t vote for him and Romney!
    .
    You got creamed! Coattails indicate real resolve amongst the voters! That means they are not voting for the man, they are voting for the party, they’re voting AGAINST the opposition.
    .
    Stop Sniveling! Blow your nose and suck it up, then maybe you’ll be able to smell the coffee!

    @raalden:

    Please don’t act like a member of congress. It’s unbecoming.

    @Dredpiraterobt$

    Ramirez is neither quoting nor misquoting Lincoln; he seems to be suggesting that if Lincoln had been around on November 7, he’d have seen there are more people willing to be fooled than he’d previously thought. And he’d be right! BTW, a laughing B.H. (Let’s give Karl Marx another try) Obama probably agrees with Ramirez but would never admit it.

    @I Play One On TV

    You got that right!! ROmney lied so much and the things he lied about were some real important too.
    SOmeone mentioned that Obama tore Romney down.
    I have never seen a president treated so bad as what Obama was put through!
    At his very 1st state of the union someone shouted out “you lie”. This rudeness hasn’t been done.
    People kept up with it, never giving Obama a chance.
    e did accomplish 193 of his campaign promises.

    @mickey1339

    Agree with almost your entire post.

    Honest question: Do you believe Obama does not want to cut spending?
