    By the looks of events in the electoral college,  President Obama is WAY ahead of Mitt Romney.   Now,  how are YOU going to celebrate President Obama's SECOND term?

      Continue to feel that it's still cool to be an American. Under Bush, it was embarassing!

      This country has gotten more and more conservative over the last 30 years.  The rich have gotten richer, the middle class has lost ground, and congress is unable to do much at all.  I believe that we can do better.  We are not the United States of the Republican Party; we are the United States of America.  I like the liberal idea that we will rise or fall together, that all of us are American first.

    I'm going to hope and pray that he AND Congress will do a better job for the next 4 years. They'll have to work together then...right?

      I wish it were so, habee, but Congress, or at least the House, has been obstructionist during the first term and will continue to be during the next. After all, when the GOP loses, the default position is a tantrum, followed by an attempt to make the President as ineffective as possible. Witness the "fiscal cliff" the House has set in front of the country just to play politics.

    I am a Conservative and have always been one.
    But, that STUPID 47% thing is probably the last straw for me!

    If there's one thing I've learned in my lifetime, it's to never count those "chickens before they hatch." In other words (to throw in another cliche'), "it ain't over till it's over."  I hope the polls are correct and President Obama is reelected, but there are so many variables involved in presidential elections and voter behavior that I won't claim Democratic victory until it's announced as irrevocable.

    That said, I hope (if he is reelected) President Obama learned some lessons in his second term that will help him be more decisive and less conciliatory to the GOP.  He is actually more conservative than I thought he was when I voted for him the first time.  Also, it seems he wanted his legacy to be that he brought the two sides of the aisle together to work in harmony.  By now he should realize that isn't going to happen.  Republicans hate him, and Congressional Republicans don't care how much it hurts America and other Americans if they can hurt President Obama.  That is really the main indictment against the GOP--their agenda (protection of the wealthy class--and make no mistake, the U.S. is NOT a classless society--and protection of the special interests, such as Big Business and Big Pharma, that dump $$$$ in the GOP treasure chest.) They don't care about the welfare of the majority of U.S. citizens. 
    I would like to see bipartisan cooperation in Congress, but do not expect it.  Republican senators and representatives are not allowed to make their own decisions--they MUST stick with the party's agenda.

      The worst thing for either candidate would be for either side to think the election is a foregone conclusion and not bother to vote.  Which ever candidate wins, I hope it's after a good turn out by the American people.

    GNelson---both parties no longer support the Constitution.  Both parties lie, cheat, and steal.   The Republicans have lost their way, and the Democrats have over 50 percent "Social Democrats" in Congress and now they are getting into the Republican Party as well.

    Both parties want to "control from the top" and not let the people have any say.   David Souter and Ross Perot have both said in the past month that we are headed for dictatorship.

      Two things we can do to fix most of this.  One, get the big money out of politics.  Two, redistrict in a fair and balanced way so that eirther party could win, then the voters would decide not a bunch of politicans who only want to keep their soft job.

    Both Obama and Romney are emotionally aged 7.  They are both really immature people.  Romney alienated tons of Republicans as he cheated his way through the primaries to the point where as a matter of principle, people will not vote for him as he proved himself a basic thug.

    Obama out of Chicago practicing politics Chicago style is also a thug.   

    These two are well-matched thugs.

    These two are both aged 7 emotionally.  Very immature, both.  Romney alienated tons of Republicans as he cheated his way through the primaries proving himself equal to Obama's thugeriness.

    They are well-matched.   Pair of immature selfish jerks.

    Boy I sure am glad this didn't become one of those forums where Conservatives get beat over the head.
    You would almost think folks could advocate a one party system instead of a two party system.
    By the way I saw a thing in there that makes me want to ask the question as to which party has been in power most the last, oh, 50 or 60 years?
