Did the actual results on Tuesday live up to your expectations? What surprised you? What are your reactions to the local races, including the area congressional races?

jvh2b,

I'll have to admit, per your 0747 post, you're a good joker, and really, I've known a lot of intelligent jokers in my life time. But you ain't one of them.

It's a joke for all of you Soetoro fans to admire a man with such passion when you don't even know who he is. But then I guess that should be okay with your lack of intelligence.

Tell me, where did you learn Barry Soetoro's name as Barack Obama. When did he become an American citizen and change his name back to Barack Obama? Better yet, when did he become a "natural born" American citizen after saying he was a Kenyan born citizen for 16 years?

Just wondering. I'm sure you have the information. Mind bringing me up to date on it? Thanks.

Well, Loner,

It looks like I have more intelligence in my posterior than you do in your brain (and you might add many others on this site).

I don't know if it was nationwide, but can you explain why we Tennesseans had to provide a photoed ID to prove we was eligible to vote in the presidential election but Barry didn't even have to prove he was an American citizen?

Unless you guys are fellow communists with Barry, you had better wake up fast.

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 2:50

Loner,

I'm sure glad your man Barry isn't considered a draft dodger because he refused to volunteer into service. But then, I guess he's different in not being an American citizen.

Hey Yogi, there are Obama black ops guys hiding behind the trees around your house.....

The election just pushed the empty headed troll further bonkers. His lies didn't deter any votes. His pants stay on fire & he just continues to lie. lie, lie.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/7/12 at 3:33

yogi, it's people like you that caused the Republicans to lose credibility and lose the election. So, please proceed!

By: bfra on 11/7/12 at 3:50

Blanket - He doesn't have enough sense for that to register. He probably caused many votes to be turned for Obama. People don't like liars.

Maybe it is time for his family to take the computer away.

By: jvh2b on 11/7/12 at 3:55

His family will never do that...because then he would simply annoy them with all of his conspiracy theory bs.

I imagine the computer is one of the few measures of relief they get...

By: bfra on 11/7/12 at 3:57

His family probably stays as far away as possible. Everybody in his County & surrounding Counties that I have talked to say he is really crazy and bugs people trying to stick his info in their face.

By: bfra on 11/7/12 at 3:59

I play bridge once a month in Carthage, which is near by & fish Cordell Hull lake which is also in that area.

pswindle,

I have asked ever since I come on this site about proving Obama was in that office legally, but none of you seem to have been able to answer, but you now state he is legal. Please explain that to me and as I've said before, I'll get off you backs and quit asking that question.

So can you begin by explaining why Barack Obama advertised his birthplace as Kenya for 16 years, plus being raised in Indonesia and Hawaii and why did he change his birthplace to Hawaii in 2007 when he entered the presidential race?

Plus, do you mind telling me why you are so willing to accept him as you president when you don't even know who the man is?

I've simply given information he put out but you obviously don't believe him when he said he was born in Kenya.

If you aren't a fellow communist of his, you had better find out who in the hell he is and what his intentions are.

I hate to be abusive to you but I love this nation too much to give it away without a fight.

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 4:32

Loner, me boy,

My head is going to stay there until it is proven to me "your man" is in that office legally of you learn enough to get your head out of yours (and do I need to mention what?).

If any of you knew I was wrong as you proposed from the beginning, why haven't you proven it already?

The Tea Party's National Ambitions Are Finished
http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/11/tea-partys-national-ambitions-are-finished/58790/

While the Tea Party won Republicans a majority in the House in 2010, election night 2012 showed the party's message is toxic at the national and statewide levels.

Commentary: Tea party seizes defeat from jaws of victory

Election Day 2012 likely will be remembered as the day that the Tea Party wave crested – and broke.

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 4:48

I'm still amazed, y'all.

All I've asked for is proof your favorite man Obama is in that office legally but none of you seem to be intelligent enough to know who he is to "get me off your backs". Why? Has he got you fooled and you don't want to admit it?

You people had better learn what's going on unless you're in favor of a one world government communist nation.

Following Tuesday's re-election of Barack Obama, the Teas will have new choices. They can jettison their more extreme elements, sending them to the political outskirts of town, so to speak....and work to actually reform the Republican Party, embracing new pro-science, climate change policies, dropping their anti-women's choice, voter suppression tactics...as well as agreeing on comprehensive immigration reform that includes, yes, a pathway to citizenship. As well as abandoning their 3 in1 oil fetish that tax cuts solve all economic problems.

But I'm guessing that none of that will happen. A Romney loss, a failure of the GOP to retake the Senate, will most likely be interpreted by the Teas as evidence that their failed candidates lost because those candidates were not sufficiently conservative.

LOL, brrrk!

Don't worry - it's the angry fringe people like him that insured an Obama victory. This was the smallest Republican turnout in 8 years.

"But I'm guessing that none of that will happen."

My guess is that the far right faction of the party has become so infected that this will continue.... and given the comments I heard from Mitch McConnell today, I'd bet money on it. The GOP (as is) is destined for the dustbin of history.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/7/12 at 5:00

Yep. And Obama will likely choose 1-3 Supreme Court justices during his second term - thank god!

By: bfra on 11/7/12 at 5:00

brrrrk - Did you understand that jibberish? How does anyone bread into a house?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/7/12 at 5:01

bfra, we need a decoder! Well then again, maybe not! LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/7/12 at 5:29

OK, did anyone else get a lot of anxiety last night when Romney didn't concede right away? I was afraid he had a nervous breakdown or something.

By: bfra on 11/7/12 at 5:33

No! I just thought he has always had everything he ever wanted ASAP and it took a while for him to realize he had really lost. Or, accept that he had lost.

I simply assumed he was throwing a spoiled brat hissy fit.....

By: bfra on 11/7/12 at 5:33

brrrrk - Probably that too

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/7/12 at 5:34

I was relieved when he finally conceded. Can you imagine the chaos if he went postal?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/7/12 at 5:35

I still haven't watched the video of Karl Rove when it was called but I've seen mention of it online.

I watched some of the KR meltdown.... I could have sworn I actually heard Chris Wallace say, "Now Karl, denial isn't just a river in Egypt"..... could have been my ears going wonky.... :-)

Sorry, kids,

Unlike y'all I put the wrong letter in a word at times. Damn, I wish I was a perfect speller like y'all.I meant BREAK into my house. And if I feed you bread it will cover my lead. Otherwise, it will be pure lead.

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 6:05

Did you mean would, or wouldn't, on your 1604 post, bfra? Just curious. I thought you was a perfect writer and never made an error.

What did you mean?

(click) liar

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 6:18

I'm astonished, bfra. You made another error on your 1633 post? Shouldn't your post to brrrrk have been 'prior to that, too' instead of "prior to that too"?

Should we all quit refuting each other?

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 6:22

Which one of y'all lied, bfra? You, or one of your cohorts?

By: Loner on 11/7/12 at 7:09

Wow....247 comments in one day...about fifty of them were troll droppings, compliments of Yogiman.....Yogi's one of the Southern, white, male, Republican Poster Boys...the true face of the Tea Party base...all you non-racist white men in Dixie ought to disassociate yourselves from the Poster Boys ....otherwise your party is on the fast track to extinction....I can't see the politics of hate and exclusion making a comeback anytime soon.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/7/12 at 9:19

You hare a liar and a coward yogi.

By: yogiman on 11/7/12 at 10:26

Loner,

If you knew what you're talking about, it would be great. But you've only got a feeble mind that's making it hard for you to think correctly.

What makes you so sure I'm a one of the Republican party members? Have you ever seen me? How do you know what my race is?

If you could show a little bit of intelligence, surely you know the questions I've asked about your man Barry Soetoro. But you don't seem to know what you're claiming to know. If you did, you could have solved the issue years ago... but it's still obvious none of you know him. Hell, Loner, y'all don't even know his name.
