Me too, map. It looks like he got about 1% of the total vote.

Um, no he hasn't. Did you even bother to look this up at all, before posting?

Obama is currently winning by almost 3 million votes, and they aren't even done counting them yet.

Why not check your posts for accuracy first?

Mitch McConnell doubles down

Quote:
“I extend my sincere congratulations to President Obama and Vice President Biden on their hard-fought victory, and I would like to thank Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan for running a great campaign based on concrete solutions to the tremendous economic challenges we continue to face. The American people did two things: they gave President Obama a second chance to fix the problems that even he admits he failed to solve during his first four years in office, and they preserved Republican control of the House of Representatives. The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the President’s first term, they have simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do together with a Congress that restored balance to Washington after two years of one-party control. Now it’s time for the President to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely-divided Senate, step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment, and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office. To the extent he wants to move to the political center, which is where the work gets done in a divided government, we’ll be there to meet him half way. That begins by proposing a way for both parties to work together in avoiding the ‘fiscal cliff’ without harming a weak and fragile economy, and when that is behind us work with us to reform the tax code and our broken entitlement system. Republicans are eager to hear the President’s proposals on these and many other pressing issues going forward and to do the work the people sent us here to do.”

That would be horable as the gop would then feel that obama is an illigit president and there would be no chance that they would work with him. It will not take a full four more years of Washington not working to get to financial crisis.

He can 'double down' all he wants - the sequester and tax increases happen automatically. They can't be stonewalled by a GOP House. It's far more accurate to say that THEY have to come up with a proposal OBAMA will accept, if they don't want it to happen.

All he has too do is sit on his hands and let the Bush tax cuts for the rich lapse. And if you all would bother checking facts you would see that he won by about 3 million votes. Its about time the citizens started paying for their government rather than charging it to our kids.

Oh my! Guess you don't know who's building most of the new Medical Schools in the US, to the tune of $45 million a pop. It surely isn't the little guy making $38,000/year.

Let the tax cuts lapse, and what do you suppose will happen to the endowments to the Arts and Sciences? Down the well-known tube.

Bullshit. The Arts and Sciences did fine in the 90's, when these tax rates were in effect. Your prediction here is without merit.

And, dare I say, those medical schools you mention ARE being built by people making 38k a year. The people putting the buildings together and doing the grunt work are making it happen. The credit doesn't go to the couple of rich fucks looking for tax breaks and legacies for their name...

In the 1960s when LBJ was still the Senate Majority Leader, in the midst of trying to get the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act passed, he was faced by ONE filibuster. In the past four years in the Senate, Harry Reid has had to deal with Two Hundred and Forty One.
The mistake has been not to call the GOP's bluff. What happens now is, as soon as any Senator announces the intention of filibustering a bill, there is an immediate move to try and find a super-majority of sixty to pass the Bill.
That is not necessary.
My hope is that the next time a Senator threatens to filibuster, Harry says "Go ahead." and makes the son-of-a-bitch stand up for what he believes for three or four days stuck in the Senate chamber while the Democrats go out to the media to plead their case for passage.
It will be the perfect picture of obstruction vs compromise.

@Miller,
Travis county in Texas is building a medical school based on the revenues of property taxes.

So, yeah, "little guys" making $38,000/year are building medical schools.....

Linky

Quote:
AUSTIN -- At Austin's historic Driskill Hotel, state and local Democrats cheered the president's reelection. For State Senator Kirk Watson (D-Austin), there was an additional item to cheer: Travis County voters Tuesday elected to pass Central Health Prop 1.

The proposal called for a 5-cent tax rate increase, roughly an additional $100 a year for the average Austin homeowner, in order to purchase health care services to support a new teaching hospital and medical school at the University of Texas.
