Well that wasn´t hard. They had 4 days to invent more votes for Barak Hussein Obama. It was the sneaking in of two ballots for every one Dem that voted in real time that was hard.

The democrats were way too calm before and during the election. I do believe the fix was in with millions of fraudulent votes, in every swing state, well before the election. Some precincts in Philly showed 99% voted for Obama, with 100% turn out. Since when does any precinct get that high of a turnout without fraud? Add in what is happening now with Alan West...obviously voter fraud and they are not even trying to hide it...sigh. I don´t know that conservatives can ever win another election at this rate. They´ve figured out how to perfect fraud :-(

I maintain that if the win had been big enough, they couldn´t have cheated their way to a win. And God help us, but they may not have needed to anyway. I am at a loss for words to explain my utter sadness over the loss of this country. Because no matter what happens now, I don´t see any way that the US is finished. Another thing the election does is seal the US position of being against Israel. God is not happy. I am just sick. But it is what it is. I shall plan accordingly, trusting the Lord to give me wisdom and to take care of my family wherever He takes us. :heavysigh:

Fine. No more trips to Florida for me. No Disney. Hope they enjoy the loss of tourist revenue when the price of gas goes up. When it comes to a choice of food and utilities at home, people will choose necessities over a trip to Disney or the beach.

#10 - Obama´s end game is only the destruction of Israel. Nothing else motivates him. Nothing. He could care less about the US economy or our healthcare. Our economic demise is only his means to his determined end of demolishing our military. Obama´s must make our military a paper tiger. This will permit him to accomplish the destruction of Israel. This is why he has been toppling middle east dictators. He wants to establish the caliphate which can work as one to destroy Israel.

Stories like the ones coming out of Philadelphia make one wonder how the media can possibly be this openly deceitful. They report 99% voter turnout for Zero as if is demonstrates and effective "get out the vote" effort instead of the obvious fact that those numbers are absolute, concrete evidence of voter fraud.

The trick is the early voting process. The democrats can count those early votes, and they know how hard they have to push their constituents to vote, even several times if necessary.
The dirty secret of hanging chads in 2000, in florida, was that the only way a hanging chad could have existed was when the fraudsters, trying to manufacture fraudulent votes as efficiently as possible, jammed extra cards into those card holders, and when they pushed the pin through, the bottom most card wound up with a faint mark or a hanging chad. And they found one of those machines in the trunk of an election worker, remember?

I agree. Romney should have immediately called for a national recount and impounding the voting machines. The Dems were way too smug all Summer long and running into the election. Additionally, the MSM kept putting up bogus poll numbers that were surprising close to the final outcome. This whole election stinks......

I believe the fix was in, too. I am heartsick and pretty much inconsolable. I am severing ties with every liberal dem that I know, and my neighborhood is full of them. I´ve also blocked phone and e-mail access to a family member who ran a canvassing office for obama in colorado.

You will never convince me the won is the winner. What an election. 2 states legalized marajuana, one state authorized the taxpayer to pay for sex changes, one person gets elected who hide for 6 months, one person gets elected who was just released from jail... days after the election it was revealed Iran shot our drone on Nov 1st, Patraus is having an affair for years, but news is released after the election... the unions spent 1/2 billion $$$ on the election... abccbsnbccnn WP NY Times gave the won no negative coverage, they should be listed as donors.

I know it´s cold comfort my friends, but history shows us that things have a way of turning on liars and cheats. He now has to govern an electorate that did not elect him. Americans are not like other people around the world. Even the majority of our illegal immigrants are more inspired by the freedom this country offers than their friend/family left behind. I think we will be a force to reckon with. Does he have the stones? Does the press really have his back now that he has won? Oh, and I just saw my first Hillary bumper sticker. It´s already begun folks and she is not to be trusted by Obama either. He may encounter another hurricane Sandy before his term is up.

#21 Absoultely Agree! The past 4 years I have notated the comments on blogs and they were all trending against Zero the closer we got to the election. Newspapers were endorsing Romney, high-profile people were dumping on Zero, polls showed Americans think the country was moving in wrong direction, polls showing Americans hate Obamacare, etc.

In Michigan, we had ballot proposals regarding collective bargaining issues and they were all defeated. The trending over the last few years seemed to be getting back to our conservative roots - people going against the Unions, supporting pro-life businesses, making hard work a positive thing...and in the end he Wins??!

And I don´t hear one peep about any possible cheating even though the Black Panthers were out again, thugs were physically removing GOP monitors from polling stations, voting machines were giving Obama Romney votes, etc, etc. I guess the new meme in the country is cheat as much as you can in any aspect of life but perfect it so as not to get caught.

Thank you Milquetoast Milt for being another "moderate" Pubbie loser.

Thank you for never mentioning Benghazi, Fast & Furious, Eric Holder, or Van Jones - - among many others - - in your feckless campaign.

And finally - - thank you to the Romneybots who trashed all the other Pubbie contenders and their followers - - and who forced the Pubbie nominating campaign to become a personal mud-slinging contest.

Thank you for four more years of the criminal, commie Zippy administration. Gotta love those "moderate" Pubbies!

1. Republican vote total down 10 million from 2008? Oh? After the Chik-fil-A turnouts?
2. Absurd Democrat "turnout" figures demand to be investigated. However....
3. The crimes involved in handling the military votes alone demand an outraged scorched-earth investigation and prosecutions.
4. #20, #22: please take a close look at how little the Dems actually won before donating half of what we built to them. The Patriot Post ran a map [Congressional districts?] showing a sprinkling of Leftist-won places scattered around.
5. Last, and maybe most importantly -- snap out of it, people. Yeah, it stinks. Yeah, the probability of criminal vote fraud is likely 100%. Yeah, it means all kinds of problems and trouble. But if all that adds up to for you is concluding "America is lost," and you´ve thrown up your hands, surrendering preemptively, saying America isn´t worth fighting for [yes, that´s what you´re saying], well, thank you for playing, and we have a nice parting gift for you. But don´t dawdle, ´K? Some of us love America, this magnificent achievement of humanity, and love our families. We´re getting to work. Now. See ya.

#26 has factual information. I read a long detailed investigative piece in WA Times three months ago about SOS, Spain, etc. This is not tinfoil hat stuff. Romney never had a chance. I realize that now. The voter fraud machine, ACORN by another name(s) and complicit Republicans (by their silence and cowardice) are to blame.

Someday, many years from now, after the citizens win freedom from the Marxist government in the second Revolution, historians will find conclusive proof that the Democrat party had rigged almost all of the electronic voting machines with faulty software code.

Of course, that is all fantasy, we all know this has been and always will be the most transparent ethical administration in history.

I´m sure many of these Florida districts had turnouts that exceeded the number of registered voters. They did the same thing in 2000 to George W. Bush. The cheaters stole it.

It would have done no good for Romney to pull what Al Gore did. Too many states to contend with and the media would have eaten his lunch and all of us Republicans/conservatives. How dare we dispute Obama´s "win."

And, news for #25, not even a saint/conservative could have won, so stop blaming Romney. He would have made a wonderful president.

Agree completely with #9 (and a lot of others), disagree very much with #10´s first statement.
Was once my thinking too -- that if Romney won by a big enough margin -- ´´...if it´s not close they can´t cheat´´. It´s obvious now that´s no longer enough. An honest majority could not protect us because there was could be no margin large enough. The Dems carefully lined up well before Tuesday what looks to be a bottomless well of votes from which to draw.
99% in this precinct? Really? 100% in that one? Really?
Welcome home, Saddam Hussein. Let´s party like it´s 2002.

Cliched, unprovable conspiracy theories usually just make me tired and frustrated, but...
This happened.
Call it a bloodless coup. It is what it is.
Of all the stories that should not be allowed to die, this is the one.

Meanwhile the Must Reads are buzzing with stories on General Petraeus´ girlfriend.
Unless she´s the direct line to the take-down of Obama &crew over Benghazi, they´re a waste of time.
He will be subpoenaed, if necessary, hopefully not to talk about his love life.

Come on guys. We didn´t lose because of cheating. If cheating were so easy, we would not have won two terms of Bush. Stop acting like liberals and trying to find a convenient boogeyman.

Blame the uneducated seniors, college idiots, and the rest of the liberal New Yorkers that have moved or retired to Florida.

Now they can go suck on their rewards.

I keep thinking of the screeching woman in the "Obamaphone" video, and realize that Obama won (stole?) the election with votes of multitudes of welfare thieves just like her, with her mentality or lower.

It makes me sick to my stomach. If I were a DemocRAT, I wouldn´t feel so smug about Obama´s "victory". In fact, I´d be embarrassed about it. But that´s the difference between the two parties...DemocRATS don´t feel any shame~~It´s all about winning.

How is ´´Liberal New Yorkers moving to Florida´´ a factor in precincts in Colorado, Pennsylvania, etc., reporting by large numbers, more votes than voters even registered in those areas? Precincts voting 99% and 100% for Obama only?

What do they think is going to happen? The Good Witch of West is going to wave her magic wand and it will all go away?

Until the GOP starts DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT - the Democrats will continue to take advantage anyway they can.

The Republicans deserve to lose to cheaters until they start standing up to the Democrats on elections and stop the vote fraud.

#45, a good friend of mine since high school called me up two years ago, and started picking on me for being a conservative. Out of nowhere, we usually did not talk politics. After I was polite but held my ground, he said he was "tired of trying to convince me" and hung up the phone, never heard from him after. Then just a few months ago I ran into him at Home Depot...he was back into drugs (er..."recovery") and looked 20 years older than me. We said hi and I was on my way.

I´m with #24, 39 & 43. Nothing adds up- he WAS ahead. All the polls were biased towards Obama and he was behind and yet Obama won? Handily? With proven voter fraud in OH, CO, PA, and FL why isn´t Romney NOW demanding a match up between votes and people who actually signed up!? He just rolled over. Haven´t heard a peep from him. This is incredibly demoralizing. If I didn´t believe God was in charge I´d be terrified. Keep getting this out there & keep praying.

Amazing mass psychology at work. Just tell the biggest lie with enough force and somehow it becomes the reality. When voting machines are caught doing the obvious manipulation for BHO, it is simply reported as a ´glitch.´ Kind of like the mechanical machines that came out of Philly with votes already cast for Democrats.

The obvious question besides how stupid and gutless are Republicans, who had a warning about exactly this kind of theft, TWELVE years ago with Gore, is this. Are we to simply accept the contradiction of a national voting public who was fed up with BHO´s fumbling in 2010 and gave him a record number of Tea Party type elected officials at all levels, now that same national voter base reversed direction and elects the master of the disaster and his helpers, AFTER AN EVEN WORSE TWO YEARS THAN 2008-2010?????

Martinez: Radical magazine is

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations. The recordings were published by Mother Jones, who said they’re from four years ago. The reporter said his article sheds light on a side of Martinez the public has never seen before, a

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016. Mr. Perry, who began serving as governor in December 2000 and who leaves office in January 2015

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
