    So, because your feelings were hurt, you decided to throw the election to an outright socialist?

    I don't think that the libertarians are going to make that big a difference. Ohio is hardly a libertarian bastion, and I doubt that the margin in Florida is going to end up being less than the libertarian vote, but that doesn't change that your logic was flawed.

    This is just too depressing. Four more years of incompetence and open hostility to American values is too much to contemplate.

    Oh, and sequestration will happen now. Obama gets to gut the military without taking the blame for it.

    I voted - straight Republican including Akin.

    Yeah and we all know their vote was better served voting for a guy who won't get 1% of the vote essentially handing the election to a guy who's hell bent on ruining this country. As I said, I hope your principles are a comfortable pillow because it's that wing of the GOP that is allowing Obama to remain in office for 4 more years. So, when the deficit goes to $20 trillion, inflation goes back to double digits, gas goes to $6 a gallon, and Al Qaeda is built up to pre-9/11 size, I don't want to hear one of you bitch and moan. Is Romney a true conservative? No. But then again we don't know how he'd govern as president. However, we KNOW what Obama is all about but your ilk didn't care. You have your principles to cuddle up to which is all you'll have since heating oil will be too expensive to buy. Sleep well my friend. Sleep well.

    I dread what he is going to do to the military. I wonder how much hidden crap is going to come to the surface now that the election is over.

    Just back from the gym, pulled a muscle in my abdomen and I can see that the Soviet Socialist States of America are now upon us. I wish I could tell my kid that his future looks bright but if he wants to succeed in this country, he will have to work extra hard so the takers can get their share.

    Me too :)

    Incidentally, with the exception of NH which I predicted blue, my map matches Rove's.

    VA, NC, FL, OH, IA, CO

    we can afford to lose either IA or CO. We still have a legit shot at the big 4, so I'm going to hang on to my optimism 'til one of those is gone.
