Stupid people. So depressing.


We have been saved! VIVA OBAMA!

Americans are soooo stupid. They only get what they deserve

FUUUCCCKKKKKKK YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! Time to breathe!!!!!

Saved? Um. He has been in for 4 painful years. We are doomed. Economy sucks. Will only get worse.

Wow, I can’t believe all of the immature comments on here. Congrats on the win. I didn’t vote for him simply because of his economic record, so he damn well better change something.

Yay!! I’m not American but I am soooo happy!!!

He will only make things worse. The country is going down the drain. Thanks liberals.

Yesssssassasz @ 11/06/2012 at 11:36 pm

Today women showed that they do, in fact, RUN THE WORLD!!!


Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Congrats!!!! @ 11/06/2012 at 11:37 pm

As a Canadian, I am beyond thrilled!!! President Barack Obama believes in equality and treats people with R-E-S-P-E-CT regardless of who you are or what you believe!

Obama! Obama! Obama! @ 11/06/2012 at 11:37 pm

Yes, yes, yes! Thank You America for not allowing the Republicans to bully you into voting for Romney. They were depending on the theory that “Americans have a short memory” and it back fired! We haven’t forgotten who got the USA in this mess and we know it don’t take 4 years to clean up a 8 year mess that pushed into decades of debt! Now let’s hope the Republicans in the House and Senate will see that America means busiiness and work with the Democrats and our President on behalf of the people who voted for them.

USA USA USA. The right candidate won.

Just wait. The bad economy will trickle down to you too. Matter of time. Then we all will live off the government. But nobody will be paying taxes.

you people didn’t honestly think he could fix the economy in 4 years did you? every economist has stated that it would take 10-12 years to dig out of the hole we are….get real, Obama put us on the right track, but even the next president will be fighting an uphill battle…..pick up a book once in a while

I am so sick I want to throw up. But on the bright side- I get to get me some free birth control. Since I’m a woman, I should be happy because all that matters is my uterus.

yessss extremily happppy

A book? Many will tell you that big government does not work. Watch the stock market. Watch unmployment get worse. Watch reality.


extremily hppppppy yeaghhh

vulgar & obscene @ 11/06/2012 at 11:44 pm

let us all have a thought for Beyonce creaming her pants somewhere at this very moment and Katy Perry getting a special golden shower of the victory oh yeaaaah USA USA!!!

Wow. Beyond disappointed in my fellow americans. What short term memories you have. Benghazi, unemployment, the economy, higher taxes ring a bell? Canada, here I come!

Stupidliberals @ 11/06/2012 at 11:45 pm

Im going to sleep because i need to get up and look for a job. Two years of looking. Companies will not respond well to this. Im screwed. No hope. College educated with experience, but no hope. I hate this! But oh, i can kill a baby if i want. Yippee.

Yes…Barack Obama. Very good. And I aint even American. That other guy was friggin’ creepy.

The WORLD breathes a sigh of relief. Good going America!

Love from Canada :)

Voted for the first time today for him! Soooo happy!

Oprah, Jayz, beyounce, and the celebs, the filthy rich celebs are happy. After all they get invited to the white house. How many of you leaving comments been invited. This prez does like to be and hang with celebs.

Romney Supporter @ 11/06/2012 at 11:48 pm

This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy. Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before. Obama is the anti-Christ.

Homosexuals stop living in sin!

Jobs are more important than anything and obama fails. Bad news.

HAPPY!!!!! @ 11/06/2012 at 11:51 pm

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


i’m not even american and i’m crying, i’m so happy! GO OBAMA!!!

The tribe has spoken…Obama yeah!
Mitt can go back to his cave now.

@Noway: You’re a douche. Stop trying to rain down on our parade and take your loss with class. Then again, that’s too much to ask from a Republican. Romney doesn’t even want to step up to the podium. He only prepared a victory speech LOL!!!

How can America be this stupid? I am shocked and disgusted. We should split the country in half and let the liberals ruin their own country. I will choose the side with the better economy that doesn’t punish success. They’ll wise up eventually and come begging to be let in.

Romney = Joke @ 11/06/2012 at 11:54 pm

Good result today! Your tears are delicious Romney supporters. DELICIOUS!

His win is our loss. We will all lose. Some have. More will follow. Relly stupid choice.

From a 22 year old British woman who has graduated University and is about to start making her way in the world with a job offer in America, i say thank you to the American people. You have shown the whole world what a truly amazing country you are. I really cannot wait to start my adult life in the great US of A !

Not so fast…….


That would be amazing. Let them have whatever half they want. I will stay far away.

I’m going to keep my mind open, I think Republican or Democrat we have to do that. Instead of focusing on what divides us why not try focusing on what unites us? You hear, “conservatives are this…” Liberals are that…” But when it all comes down to it, not one person and not one way of government will aid all, there needs to be more communication and less unproductive activity such as name calling and berating of others for having an opinion. Obama got 4 more years, we can’t change that, what we can do however is adapt by making sure we become active in raising the morale of American citizens and encouraging them to think about EVERYONE and not just whats best for them. Forgive me for getting preachy but I hate the fighting, it solves absolutely nothing. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and no one is weaker in intelligence, morality, finance, or faith because of what party they lean to. Remember it starts with the people, if we see it fit, we need to stand up against what’s not the best for this country and rigt now, what really isn’t best is all the arguing. Don’t focus on what we can’t change, focus on what we can for the future.


America is too dumb to know what high unemployment really means.

Whats good for this country is more jobs. If you hurt corporations, you will not get more jobs. Not rocket science.

Let them celebrate. In 2 years, they will regret thir stupidity.

@susan…yea cause the republicans didn’t do anything to put us in an economic hole right? (that’s sarcasm in case it doesnt show through since im on a computer)

I’M SO HAPPY. #Forward.
Americans are happy. This is why I love America.

Good luck trying o get a job now.

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy!!!

i’m not American and i’m so happy, won someone who respects every single person, thank you!

whooooooooooooooo hoooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fade into obscurity Romney, and take Eddie Munster w/you!


The world is breathing a sigh of relief. Four more years.

Thank God Obama will get to continue to build on his accomplishments!! Go forward, USA!!

1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It covers 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.

2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating in excess of 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.

4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.

6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration)
into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs.
In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the
GM stock it still owns increases.

8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.

10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost.

11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on February 11.

——–New president! YES! YES! YES! YESSSSSS!

Yes, The Economy is improving and we will be better off now at AthenaToysDotCom

ROMNEY WINS POPULAR VOTE @ 11/07/2012 at 12:30 am

Some democratic system.

Congrats to the USA for the right decision. A president the world is willing to support.


I’m so happy now…

@gina: i”m a woman and I sure am not celebrating. If you had a son or daughter in the military, you would not be celebrating either.


Perhaps you’d have better luck finding a job if you improved your grammar and spelling skills. Obama has lowered interest rates on student loans – take advantage.


horrible horrible horrible horrible. Put your savings in a shoe box under the bed or obama willl come for it to fund more giveaways.

To Count

President Obama has 303 Electoral College votes; he only need 270 to win. Any questions?

to Noway,

Think of this as payback for inflicting George W. Bush on America.

To Romney supporter @ 11/06/2012 at 11:48 pm

You and your friends are the reason I voted against Mitt Romney and for President Obama.

meh Osama> Obama or Romney, same **** different smell.

America is officially doomed now, good luck with your free rights now haha

Dumb ass yanks, ah I forgot the only good thing you got out of this is a Obama phone!

sorry day,

I have to brothers serving in the military; one is an officer on a ship and the second is an army officer who is not in the United States. For reasons that should be obvious, I am more than celebrating.

Four more boring years with this twerp.

To Count

You are listening to Mitt Romney’s concession speech now?

@porquenon: “Perhaps you’d have better luck finding a job if you improved your grammar and spelling skills. Obama has lowered interest rates on student loans – take advantage.” LMAO!!!!! Good one!!

Love the Democrats @ 11/07/2012 at 1:05 am


OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED @ 11/07/2012 at 1:08 am

Go ahead and celebrate the high gas prices, no jobs and the high taxes that will come from Obama care. You fools just destroyed America. I predict Obama will have to answer for the cover up in Bengazi and the Americans who were killed. Its not over and Obama will be impeached. He lied to the American people. I’m afraid of what else he is lying about. The gas prices were at 1.98 when Bush left office and its now close to 4.00. Fools

@sorry day: I was in the military and I’m celebrating.

Singing… It’s all over— call it a day— The 47% + have sent Romney and his camp home for 4 more years.

OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED @ 11/07/2012 at 1:17 am

@LOL Do you hear how stupid you sound. You just said take advantage of lower student loans, how is this going to help you when you can not find a job to even pay for your student loans because Obama has no plans on how to create jobs. This obamacare is not free. You stupid idiots. We are going to be taxed for it and paying for other peoples welfare. We could have elected a man who was going to create jobs and build the economy. You believed the crap Obama said about the rich paying more taxes. I have news for you stupid people, its not that many rich people in America to cover this debt. Obama is going to come out with his real plan and that is to tax the middle class to pay for his welfare programs and for people sitting on their butts doing nothing with their lives. America is crying now.

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:18 am


shoulda come up with a better choice than romney. i’m republican and even i voted for obama

@OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED: You Republican will never learn. The old days and ways of Karl Rove are a thing of the past. The scare tactics and excessive lying no longer works… Obama will not get impeached, you are just angry and hoping for the worst since Romney did not win. Get over it… OBAMA 4 More Years !!!

OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED@ 11/07/2012 at 1:08 am

Only in your right wing dreams. Democrats still control the Senate. Now, take a page out of Mitt Romney’s playbook and accept defeat graciously.

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:23 am

you better come with a good choice for 2020 because you don’t have my vote in 2016 either.

Truth wins @ 11/07/2012 at 1:23 am

Yayyyyeee…. no Mormon Yoke on this country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:25 am

i directed #99 to bitter republicans. i’m republican and i am not happy with the party. they better come up with better choices in candidates come 2020.

get ready for fema concentration camps..

crazy statements @ 11/07/2012 at 1:27 am

O@tina: OH yeah, celebrate lack of funding for simple needs and equipment and celebrate the lowering of esteem around the world. If you are intimating that under obam there won’t be military maneuvers for real, OK. But then what a sad, sad, sad, day for this nation. A bunch of girlie soldiers, heaving a sigh of relief that what they signed on for won’t have to be faced. No protecting their nation. Hide under the covers, now, sweetie. Boo. You deserve what you’ll get.

OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED @ 11/07/2012 at 1:27 am

@lucy: Obama will have to answer for what happened in Libya. It’s not over. Don’t celebrate to fast and I’m not right wing, I’m a democrat. He will be impeached. Obama knew in real time this was a terrorist attack not a fake protest from a made up 15 minute movie. He who laughs first does not get the laugh last.

Dave Franco @ 11/07/2012 at 1:28 am

He WON Ohio and Florida. That is huge. Obama has still a lot of work to do but I have faith.

why are people so excited? he didn’t have competition, i really wish a strong republican was up against him to make him respond instead of just hitting romney with witty comebacks.

well.. good luck america

Dave Franco @ 11/07/2012 at 1:32 am

@exnihilo Great post.

@KO Ron Paul would have given a good run.

@OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED: No matter how hard you try, you can’t stop the celebration!!!

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:37 am


ding the tea partier.

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:38 am

hey natty,
I think you got kool aid in your tea pot
throw it out!

@Dave Franco: yeah i thought that, too. I’ve heard him speak live and he makes other republicans sh<t themselves

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:41 am

natty, if a military president gets in there would be fema concentration camps but obama won.
your tea party is the war party.
not interested.

He promised he would have more flexibility with me after the election…I’m taking him up on his offer and giving him a congratulatory call ;)

on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:43 am

consider kool aid dumped for half of america. get out of the tea party if you value your life.

Martial Law @ 11/07/2012 at 1:43 am


on concession speech @ 11/07/2012 at 1:44 am

i actually like putin. the real one.

@pup first of all, Canada’s policies are similar to Obama’s. secondly, stay the hell away, no one wants horrible people like you.


Just as GW Bush was impeached for lying about WMD in Iraq? You needed PO to come out and tell you that the attack was real! tell me, were you also upset that he didn’t contact you first before taking out OBL as well. PO is not required to tell YOU everything he knows. Get real and join the rest of us.

to Martial law @ 11/07/2012 at 1:58 am

only if a warmonger president won would there be martial law. because in case you didn’t get the message. we ain’t having it. so f-ck off militariy ar$$ehole!

i have a question:
what does PO stand for?

To 120

PO stands for President Obama.

@lucy: OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED is staring at him or herself in the mirror right now, facing his double standards. I guess he/she will have to come up with some other baseless theory… but we are used to the republican rhetoric.

@crazy statements you have the right name because none of what you said made a bit of sense.


Good…so you can start scre_ _ _ ing around starting tomorrow.
The gov’t will even pay for your abortions, dimwit

If he wants to make us like him, his first act should be to place a tax on anything that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth. We could clear up the deficit by Thanksgiving.

@pup: I’m Canadian and I say you stay right the h.e.l.l. where you are. Keep that hate on your own damn soil. Canada doesn’t need that. We are a peaceful country that focuses on governing an entire nation as a whole, not just a religion. Religion needs to stay out of politics, IMO. The purpose of government is to work for/with the people. Unite them, not divde them. Respect all and learn to live together. You have no choice so suck it up.

Good Job BARRY ! :)
Congrats !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

well done, obama! but now you have to remove the embargo on cuba!

Great. 4 more years of absolutely nothing again. Can’t wait!!

I’m not American but I am so happy that Obama WINS presidential election!!!Congratulation!!!

Congrats Obama. I anyways never thought Romney would win

Juicy Lucy @ 11/07/2012 at 7:02 am

I have always wanted to live in a third world country and now that Obama has been reelected, my wish has come true!

The welfare recipients are happy. The women who want the right to murder their baby are happy. The rest of us are screwed. Yay.

Non Americans are happy because this will further weaken this country.

To the cluless poster who suggests taking advantage of student loans, there are many people with college degrees and huge loans that cannot get a job. Are you out of touch with reality? A college degree does nothing when companies arent hiring. Nobody is retiring. Too afraid. This is bad.

You all cannot complain when it gets worse, after all you elected him.

If you celebrated last night and have a huge hangover this morning…well it is going to get really ugly real fast. Good luck America, you will needed.

The world feels relief right now. It would have been a disaster for world peace if Romney had been elected president. Now Obama can continue all the good work he started, just imagine how many more people will get healthcare now. American women must feel so much safer now. Sexual assault is always the offenders fault, never the other way around. I am very happy for you!!! Love from Norway! :-)

@anymouse: thinking the same thing – as an australian looking in i just don’t think there is going to be much of a change. but i hope so.. i mean we went to war because their last president ‘said so’ just hope this one knows when to stop it. i mean they’re still sending drones over the middle east so im going to say it isn’t going to end any time soon – believe it or not america, your president is still killing innocent ppl !!

I thought the election would drag on and on and turn off the TV. I found out Pres. Obama won from Just Jared !!

I’m an Australian who grew up in SEA and I tell you that the killing of innocent people using drones is NOTHING compared with carpet bombing, napalm and agent orange used in IndoChina 40 years ago.
I don’t know about you but I’m not happy about Aussies going into Iraq thanks to George W Bush. However, there is a conflict going on between the Western world and Al Queada and the Taliban. It’s a real conflict. Lest you’ve forgotten many Aussies were killed in Bali by the islamists trained in Afghanistan and pakistan. So, sorry to be brutal about it but in any violent conflict, there’s collateral damage. Just be thankful that those innocent killed don’t number in the hundreds of thousands and that our loved ones are safe.
Let’s not just blame american drones. What on earth were Islamists doing in Bali bombing innocent people?

@Seana: yes but if you remember we didn’t start a war because of bali.

And i’ll never think war is the answer, supporting soldiers is one thing but supporting a war is a whole different situation. And george bush said there were weapons of M.D and THERE WEREN’T. it was about oil.. you think killing innocent muslims is the answer? i don’t and i never will

and i didn’t say i wasn’t happy it’s obama because romney isn’t what anyone needs but i dont think there will be a huge change in america.

I think POTUS has to than Biden and Clintons A LOT !!! Couldn’t have done it without them, in my honest opinion.

I mean “thank”

not even an american but happy obama got re elected

June Carter @ 11/07/2012 at 1:14 pm

Good choice! Greetings from Germany :)


“We were in this together, and then you were gone. Now this evil… rises. The Batman has to come back.”

The middle class is screwed with Obama. So congrats, you votes who voted for him have officially dug your own grave. And this will come back to haunt you. And its our generation that is going to suffer for it.

Huge Victory for AMERICA! We did not want a creepy old Romney to come in and ruin everybody’s life. THANK YOU GOD!

LOOOOSSSSEERRRSSS should give it a rest. 2 years of yapping and losing, not too sweet, sorry people. Your candidate ruined everything all on his own and LOST. Hating Latinos and gays and women and Jews, not going to work in this country that’s build on immigrants. Go retire Redneck and enjoy your $250mil. but don’t forget to pay your HIGHER TAX next year, hahahahaha

You cannot vote for a president because you think he is cool. Its about economic stability. Obama will never reach that. This will hurt all of us.


Says a legitimate rape supporter.

Doesn’t matter…He won anyway! Hahahahaahahaaha

HELL YESS! and for all thoes sayn stuff about him Shut Da F**k up Obama is the best!!!
