I’m shocked by these results overall. The worst president in history and half the population still votes for him. Maybe things will change when the checks stop flowing.

I’m assuming the analysts have some idea of where the remaining votes are, county-wise, so being ahead in the current vote tally may not be that important.

R would still need FL, VA and CO/IA/WI. Anything can happen I guess. I felt they did make calls a little early for OH & WI.

But I am off to bed. Hope I wake up and things changed over night. But that is probably just a dream.

Thanks everyone for keeping me sane here the last couple months.

Not if he loses VA and FL. He’s down 1.7% in VA with 96.6% of the vote counted.

Turn out the lights.

Ohio has mail in absentee ballots that have 10 days to come in. Florida is an automatic recount state and maybe we’ll find out if there was any funny business. Lee county Florida still has about 75,000 or so returns they have not submitted. I know 50,000 is a lot of votes to make up in FLA. Military voters in Virginia and Florida. Damn Iowa, NH, CO, and Wisconsin!

Doesn’t matter. Obama is up over 300 with Nevada called for him.

Even if by some miracle Romney got the remaining states which would be over 70, still leaves him short.

As I understand it, the majority of uncounted votes are in heavily Democratic areas. Don’t get too excited.

The Republican party back in the 30’s and 40’s was completely different from today.

First, abortion wasn’t an issue, and we didn’t have sanctimonious evangelicals like the TV preachers butting their noses into Republican party politics. The thumpers and wheezers were on the Democratic side.

Second, modern “conservatism” wasn’t even born yet. The communist threat, which unified the GOP post-WWII, wasn’t an issue yet.

Third, the GOP justifiably owned the onset of the Great Depression. Herbert Hoover was an idiot of the highest order, a buttinski in all manner of economic issues without any benefit. Hoover, more than anyone else, screwed the GOP’s chances until Ike came along.

The problem for the GOP now is that they’re following the same stupid playbook again and again and again and again... expecting different results. The GOP doesn’t have an economic plan worthy of the noun “plan.” They have no coherent foreign policy, and the people who shoot off their mouths on foreign policy are apt to say some astoundingly stupid things - McCain being prime idiot #1 on this issue.

Then we have the problem with the GOP’s internal politics: This is a similarity to the 30’s and 40’s Republican party: there were people who were of mind to oppose FDR, but the Republican party hacks wouldn’t take on FDR on foreign policy during wartime (for which there’s some justification in not doing so), but the party hacks were basically in the thrall of idiotic nostrums in those days and the party hacks crapped on people just as they crap on people now.

The difference between then and now is that back then, the Republicans were reasonably certain that FDR wasn’t going to completely run the country into a ditch, so the GOP was content to lay back and bide their time.

That’s not the case now.

As I now see it, the GOP will go the way of the Whig party. And very deservedly so.

No, not with Obama over 300 now, just got Nevada.

With approx 70 electoral possible votes, still leaves Romney short.

Barone, Rove, and Rush are now officially dead to me.

Why did you include Rush Limbaugh in that trio? He's been an unwavering voice for Constitutional Conservatism for decades and is poised to be be stronger than ever in the years ahead. He succinctly articulates the values at the core of the real America and helps to rally the base.

“I’m shocked by these results overall. The worst president in history and half the population still votes for him. Maybe things will change when the checks stop flowing.”

This is a fact about the state of our population that has depressed me for most of the last 4 years. Even if Mitt had won today this fact would still be true becase so much of the population is lible to embrase the concept of stealing from their brother to give themselfs unearned lucutury.

The truth is this attidue among a population is the tyrannical trade mark of the decline & self-destruction of a democracy.

Your right of course that such a policy cannot go on forever, but you must recognize that this behavioral will only end when there is no more money to take. That means there will be no truly free or productive people left in our land to rob from.

Furthermore that which remains of the population will by default be an increasingly desperate mob ultimately willing(in their mind perhaps forced) to surrender what little liberty they have left to anther carrasmatic tyrant promising to fix it all and “make the trains run on time” again.

We of course know where that ends. The same place the republic of Germany and the republic of Rome famously ended.

Such will inevitably be our fate of this democracy in time.
The only caveat is will we all be there to at the end, or will the still noble parts of us throw off the shackles of the now unconstitutionally lawless union ruled by an increasingly corrupt mob to start a new republic founded once more in liberty & Constitutionally finite government?

I say this is Civil War 2 but that is our only real long term option. Not to fight a 2nd civil war but to break the unlawful bonds that content us to this corruption, to flee from Sodom as it burns itself to the ground.
