    The funny thing is that I'm not a huge Obama fan but the far-right wing hatred for him is so hilariously idiotic that I can't help but savor it. I saw this gem recently on another forum:

    I love it!

    shit, anyone paying attention can see the destruction of the middle class, more takers than givers, and our liberties deteriorating. *** the two party system, they buy their sheep outfits at the same retailers.

    It is amusing. The dems were saying the same stuff when Bush was re-elected. Many dems in 2004 and repubs in 2012 said they would flee to Canada if their party didn't win, but sadly they never did.

    Ultimately very little will change. Dems can't pass much since the house is still in Republican control. Plus we are still stuck with only two parties and they both want to kick the can down the road, hoping future generations will fix the problems they cannot.

    My hope (and it's probably a naive one) is that establishment Republicans will face reality, tell Grover Norquist to go *** himself and accept some tax increases in exchange for real changes to entitlement programs that prevent them from bankrupting our country. Erskine Bowles for Treasury Secretary!

    OTOH look at how much lasting damage GWB was able to cause to this country, especially in his first term. A Romney presidency would have been a continuation of GWB-something I think would have set us on an irreversible trend downwards. Hopefully Obama continues to do the heavy lifting necessary to get us on the right track.

    The difference is that philosophically it actually makes sense for a democrat to flee to Canada. It makes you look like an idiot if you say that as a republican.

    Yes but there's far more humor in Republicans saying they want to flee to the socialist utopia of Canada.

    I would be upset too if my used car salesman of a candidate didn't get elected

    I'm also well aware that within a few weeks I'm going to start gritting my teeth in frustration at the stupid shit that Obama and the more liberal Democrats are bound to try to do. I have no illusions that he's a great national leader or that the far left isn't just as awful as the far right. Still, just for a few days I'm going to savor the misery of all the extreme conservative crackpots out there. It feels so goooood.

    Perhaps some people think he should R.I.P.---Rot In Pieces rather than Rest In Peace.

    Pretty much this. Mr Bush's two wars, huge tax cuts, and high defense spending have gotten the country in its current situation. Mr Romney's agenda was to continue Mr Bush policies.

    The people who say that anyone who voted for Mr Obama wants free stuff are the same people who want to invade Iran and increase defense spending by 2 trillion dollars.

    Too much Fox rots the brain, it's a scientifically proven fact.

    Too many hardcore neo-conservatives in this country. Very sad.

    Where have all the moderate republicans gone to?

    Meeting in the middle is out of the question as far as the Repubs are concerned. They've made this clearer than anything else they've said or done. Their whole existence for the past four years was to get rid of Obama after his first term. All this at the expense of a faster recovery from the disasterous Bush/Cheney era economic meltdown.

    If Romney had won, the choke hold on the middle class and the poor would have tightened considerably, them (Romney's pals) knowing that by keeping the middle class and the poor in a worse financial position they will kneel and bow down that much easier when more tax cuts and loopholes for the rich and more corporate welfare are demanded along with big businesses finally getting a free hand toward depressing wages and benefits for even bigger profits and perks.

    An informed and well educated middle class that votes for its own best interests is the Corporatists worst enemy. Most things they've done to corrupt our legislators have been aimed at overcoming this obstacle in their quest for higher and ever more higher profit with the resultant increase in power and influence that goes with it.
