    I'm thrilled, well pleased at least, that we have a second term with President Obama.

    Couldn't stand him then and can't stand him now

    Well, the headline is probably accurate. But seeing the look on Republicans faces the morning after Mitt lost the election by gaining only (wait for it)---47% of the vote (Kah-mah go "boom" yall)--was a thrill I'll never forget. Just sayin'

    Give some examples (details) of why.

    I agree. Our grandchildren will probably agree also when the hens come homne to roost with their credit card maxed out and the treasury is broke.

    prophecies were supposed to have been fulfilled but were not so there is a lot of disappointment there for most people on this forum but it's okay to cry and whine. There are times when you have to accept eating crow for supper. Life goes on in the United States of America.

    95% of black voters voted for Obama. Why?? Has blaming Bush ended now? He now only has Congress to blame, which he will do for the next four years. Worst president in our history - hands down. Four more years of oppression won't be pretty.

    Dusty off the teleprompter, baby...

    I hope he enjoyed that $7 M vacation paid for by the taxpayers on the eve of a fiscal cliff!

    Mr. Alover wouldn't be happy until he could see the president in line at the airport looking for a discount fair, and even THEN he'd probably accuse Obama of sneaking out of the office while "on the clock". $Seven million is what falls into the cracks in the couches at the Pentagon about every hour.

    I know that I am certainly NOT thrilled by a second Obama term....the first one was brutal enough.

    Mark B,

    So it's ok? Even though we were told to tighten our belts? Shouldn't an example be set?

    Isn't the commander in charge of the cracks in the couches at the Pentagon?

    Lyndon Johnson used to go around the White House turning off lights. Think he got any credit for it? Think he deserved any? What you guys are whining about is so insignificant that even the TPersa haven't put it on their lisat. It says more about you than Obama, no contest/

    The continual slide of America is happening right before our eyes.

    So sad that 47% of the people in America are not making the connection to the decline in Morals and where we are right now.

    @ MarkB Scoffing at a 7$mill vacation.I would say CA is exactly where you should be. The worst example of fiscal responsibility in the entire Country. I do not need to list the failures of your state eveyone knows them including you.
