Do we have a new President yet?


Everyone’s calling it for Obama, but there’s been no concession speak from Romney yet.

Edit: Yes we do. The same one we had yesterday.

Thoughts?

    i didn’t vote for him, but i’m glad he won.

    washington legalised cannabis and gay marriage, and elected a democratic governor, all of which are good things, as well.

    Jimbo

    you must be a gay pot head.

    The results from four states aren’t in yet, but Obama already has 20 more electoral votes than he needs to secure a win.

    Romney hasn’t conceded yet because he already admitted he only wrote a victory speech and needs time to cram this one out college style.

    Such “presidental” planning on his part. Sounds just like the asshole boss that is always “right” about *everything* and blames *everyone* but himself for fucking up.

    Glad he lost. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall when it hit him that all of this effort was for nothing.

    Well, going off the last four years we can look forward to (new) record numbers on government assistance, doubled gas prices and horrifically incompetent government programs like cash for clunkers.

    Anonymoose

    Cash for Clunkers also wasn’t supposed to be a profitable venture. When people are terrified of the economy collapsing, they hoard all liquid resources and thus stagnate the economy; when this happens during a recession, it tumbles into depression. The program was meant to get people moving liquid wealth around and feel comfortable doing so – it didn’t make money; it lost money … but it saved a whole lot more of it. It’s one of the most misunderstood efforts of our time.

    Cash for clunkers destroyed cars, destroyed wealth, resulting in fewer used cars in the markets which resulted in higher prices for used cars which mainly impacted low income people. Ecoomics is hard. Especially if you’re an economic illiterate like those in charge of the executive branch.

    Jimbo

    Cash for clunkers was a omama failure,
    who are you trying to shit.

    To address some of your points lets see. Government assistance is up not from Obama going jeezz let me throw some green at my bros, but because the country hit a recession under the Bush administration. That will go back down as people continue to get back to work. But lets look at the real numbers. In 2008 under Bush 44.4% of the country was receiving some form of government assistance. Under Obama it went to 49% due to the recession. Yep Obama is a wild man. Gas prices? I think old W Bush said it best when gas prices… Read more »

    Okay, political views and biases aside.

    Reversible Mittens

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA

    DaftGhosty

    =) yeah that is something I took to calling him about a month or two ago, seems to make people give a chuckle, so I keep using it hehe

    Have a sit down and write to your Republican chums and tell them to stop this anti-cooperation front and find real solutions that they can all work with. Their sole purpose was to stop what happened tonite and it failed. They have it on tape that it was their agenda to make Obama fail. Now they need to swallow their pride and get shit done for every American.

    You have the right to contact your representatives and voice your opinion about going forward and finding real solutions. I assume you voted, now participate.

    Romney just conceded. Obama’s it.

    GrandAdmiralThrawn

    … can’t find it on his website…

    audsmaud

    They probably aren’t thinking too much about the site right now. Watched him give the speech minutes after I posted that and after it was released that he had called Obama to concede.

    crewmanguy

    I’m more concerned about how many Dems get/keep congressional seats. If they have another majority, hopefully they’ll have learned from last time and actually work together to make some real change. Last time they squandered it.
    If they don’t have a majority, I’m worried we’ll have 4 more years of both parties blocking each others plans out of spite.

    GrandAdmiralThrawn

    IT is amazing any of them kept seats…

    Anonymoose

    I felt the same way. As an independent, I really thought this was going to be the year to let my inner Republican shine… Not to say I think Obama’s done a bad job, I think he played the hand he was dealt rather well, but, as you say, I figured that if Congress won’t respect him enough to work together, the alternatives are worth a look… And then the Republican Primaries happened. They had the chance to give me someone worth my time, someone with ideas that’d WORK, with reasonable alternatives; that was a president, not the political equivalent… Read more »

    The republican’s have spent a lot of time playing catch up. They’re running around looking for black and female candidates, because that’s what they think they need to counter, since they can’t offer anything different in terms of policy.
    They forgotten how to actually accomplish something good. Maybe if they could do that, one of them could actually shine and be elected based on their actions.
    But both Repubs and Dems are to busy keeping lobbyists happy.

    Best metaphor ever.

    The one my sister used to work for –who turned into a complete headcase once in office– just lost her seat to the same guy she beat 2 years ago.

    Looks like he’s about to say “FUCK YEAH, BITCHES!”

    ColdWarBatman

    Political views are like penises.. It’s nice to have one but once you start forcing it down someone’s throat you end up looking like a dick…

    Brent

    In summary; America lost because 99% of the voters are idiots.

    HAPPY POOP

    IM GOING TO POOP ALL OVER YOUR FEET

    HAPPY POOP

    Nurgen

    I’m suffering from just reading that.

    but he’s darky, that can’t be lagal

    HoChunk

    HE WILL MAKE IT LEGAL

    crewmanguy

    I don’t think he will. He may be for it(I don’t know his stance on it), but until enough of congress is on board, he won’t be able to legalize it.
    I see it becoming a states rights issue since some states have already legalized it.

    I wuz just aping Darth Sidious…gawrsh

    Is it wrong for me to be more elated that Romney didn’t win than that Obama did?

    Zeku

    If it is, oh well, I’m right there with you on that.

    TsJ

    If Obama has been reelected, does that mean we can take all the conservative’s guns away now?

    The NRA said so –

    Jimbo

    come and try to take mine,I don’t
    belong to the nra.

    -

    Yay!

    Now you guys can continue to plummet? You just voted for your own country to fail because the media you watch hyped up international resentment of your previous successes.

    lol

    Best speech ever…

    I liked it when he told his daughter that he’s not going to buy them another dog because he just made Romney his bitch.

    jpmct

    Let’s see. 44 responses, minus the 5-6 from conservatives that all got voted out leaves about 38 Obama supporters.

    How many of you have jobs?

    Come back in a year and re-answer that question.

    Case closed.

    You all are going to find out fast and hard how expensive free stuff from the government really is.

    JediaKyrol

    Wait…we get free stuff from the government? I thought I was getting shit I paid taxes for…How can I get it for free?
