    As much as I get a laugh out of Trump I'm really not looking forward to another four years of the hate the man shits out.

    Also...LOL @ BD6969's post.

    Agreed. This election was OVER a few months ago. It was never going to be close.

    Yay! I'm glad there are more people getting on board with that. I actually voted green myself, but that is because I knew that Obama would get Illinois' vote. If it were too close to call, I would have voted Obama, but since this is Illinois, I voted for the Green party to get them some recognition.

    My favorite bit in the news this morning was that Ryan was running a reelection campaign for his House seat at the same time he was running as VP. This was news to me. Maybe this is actually common, but it seems like usually a VP candidate is only running for VP and not running a parallel campaign as a back-up. I guess Ryan really is the smart one in the GOP! :lol: Romney's screwed. All he gets to do is go back to being stupid rich. Lame. :cry:

    From what I remember hearing he HAD to. It was something like that, like he actually had to run for both due to the laws in his state. I can't remember 100% now. I don't care enough to even lazilly GOOGLE it.

    You know what really bugged me? When the media referenced Romney. How they kept referring to him as Governor Romney. Jackass hasn't held an elected office since 2007. Guess he can go back to flipping companies.

    Well, you know he's an optimist. He's probably gearing up for 2016...

    From the BBC:

    Job titles are for life

    Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts for four years - and he left office almost six years ago. Yet he is still addressed as Governor Romney, as if that were a title of nobility rather than a political office.

    The US has only one president at a time, but Bill Clinton and George W Bush are always referred to as President Clinton and President Bush - even in the same sentence as Obama.

    And during the Republican primary campaign, Newt Gingrich was routinely referred to as Mr Speaker - even though he was the Speaker of the House for four years and left that post nearly 14 years ago.

    As odd as it sounds to hear "Presidents Clinton and Obama" from a news presenter's mouth, the perma-title is acceptable, traditional and appropriate, says Daniel Post Senning, author and spokesman for etiquette arbiter Emily Post Institute.

    "It really shows the esteem that we hold those offices in - that this is a democracy, and those are such important positions that it becomes like a professional title," he says.

    "I liken it to when a judge or a doctor retires. They've invested a lot in their professional identity and many retain the use of their professional title.

    Obama is not perfect, but I'd vote for him over a guy who represents a party that spent quite a bit of time and effort to make helping the citizens of the country out harder than it needed to be. "obama hasn't done shit"...the GOP played a big part in trying to make that a true statement...so to me, these guys care more about taking power than helping a guy to help out the country as he was elected to do (and that they "love" so much more than Obama and his supporters). they'd rather watch our country burn to the ground, than to help the president help as many as possible.

    Romney's jobs plan is just taking credit for what was already expected to take place with Obama's initiative.
    Obama's job plan is said to not create lasting jobs while using gov't spending to make it possible. so we get stuck with the bill when the party's over. but infrastructure could help boost the economy in other ways. also investing in education and research means that our children will have new ideas and be able to compete and collaborate in tomorrow's world.

    I don't know. I'm just glad it's over.

    I actually watched the whole thing on the BBC... Who was that anchor? He seemed so clueless about the US it was sort of sad... "Nascar? That's truck racing, right?"

    Agreed at the fact that Obama is not perfect. I am relieved that he did win though, I would of been pist if Romney had won. He wanted to put Big Bird out of a job!...

    BIG BIRD!

    I'm sure it was mentioned somewhere in this thread.
    What boggles my mind is the shitload of money spent on campaigning. That amount could have fed a whole lot of children plus put them through collage.

    Sorry but things like this continue to show the problem with our polarized electorate.
    Its petty and it does nothing to promote either side.
    No matter which side you support I think we need to pull back from the knee jerk memes and stereotypes. But since that won't happen the loons of both sides will control and live.

    All the political PR is really so fucking bizarre. It gets as silly and irrelevant and dumb as a snickers or skittles ad. Am I choosing a president or a sugary snack?
