    @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!!!

  • Susan

    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

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

  • Heather

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

  • Anna

    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 !

  • Karl Rove

    Not so fast…….

  • Heather

    @Susan:

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

  • Guy

    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.

  • Poilk

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

  • Nojobs

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

  • Whatever

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

  • Kaya

  • ex nihilo

    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.

  • porquenon

    @Stupidliberals:

    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.

  • Isha

    @ROMNEY WINS POPULAR VOTE: CHECK YOUR RESULTS, OBAMA NOW AHEAD IN POPULAR ALSO… SORRY, IT’S OVER.

  • oh well

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

  • lucy

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

  • lucy

    to Noway,

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

  • mary

    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.

  • bleh

    meh Osama> Obama or Romney, same shit 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!

  • mary

    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.

  • chris

    Four more boring years with this twerp.

  • lucy

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

  • LOL

    @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

    CAN’T STAND OBAMA!

  • OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED

    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

  • tina

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

  • Isha

    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

    @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

    @OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED:

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

  • Isha

    @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 !!!

  • lucy

    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

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

  • Truth wins

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