University of Mississippi students riot over Obama Victory. Presidents re election greeted with anger at deep south campus. Raw video
After Obama victory Donald Trump rants on Twitter "This election is a total sham, we are not a democracy."
"There is a mean spirit on the lose, not only in Alabama, but in America and that's what makes this election so important." Alabama State Senator Hank Sanders (D. Selma)
"Mitt's a liar but he's still better than Obama" Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (r. Georgia)
Now that the election is over, I am going to admit I was afraid, strike that, I was very afraid, republicans were going to gain control all three branches of our government, including the Supreme Court. Although the media infused, GOP still controls the House of Representatives,Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and President Obama, can keep them in check. Hopefully they won't make it their life mission to destroy our country, and will allow President Obama the opportunity to govern he was denied in his first term.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
"This race has been particularly difficult, because the ugly racism that still haunts this country and compels the voting choices of a majority of white people was particularly aggressive this time around. I’d say it was worse in 2008, because last time, I think conservatives simply found it implausible that Obama could win, polls aside. Now that they have proof that Americans will vote for a black President, their rage has spun out of control. After four years of conservatives trafficking in race-baiting conspiracy theories, the majority of white people are still on board with their agenda, which is beyond depressing."
I have to give republicans credit, they almost pulled it off. All that money, all that Benghazi, "You didn't build that," the birtherism, the racial dog whistles - all for naught.
Will we the people ever form a more perfect union?
I HOPE so, but I FEAR not.
CNN exit polls showed women voting in greater numbers than men and heavily favoring Obama - in contrast with men, who preferred Romney.
