I am not saying that environment is the only factor at play here but life is most definitely NOT a level playing field. Most of us on this forum are incredibly privileged and may not realize it.
    Totally agree. I am from a privileged background in that we always had food on the table and a roof over our heads. A few years ago an incident pushed me into a section of society that I would never have been exposed to and opened my eyes to what life truly is like in the US if you are born without privilege. I voted with my conscience fully aware that financially I may be impacted negatively by the result.

    Obama has made life infinitely harder for all the major outsourcing companies. It's incredibly difficult to bring resources in from India and China to learn the job and take it back. Now they have to use many more US resources. I suspect Romney would have blown that open again, given his own financial interests in outsourcing. It always made me smile when he talked about getting tough on China, when in reality Obama has made it very difficult for outsourcers.

    Massachusetts resoundingly voted for Obama over their own man: almost 70% to 30%.

    I hope the GOP learns some lessons from their platforms being resoundingly rejected in 10 of 11 swing states tonight. The Republican Party needs to figure out how to stop alienating vast portions of the population in favor of selling out to the Religious Right and $Big Business$ or else they risk irrelevancy within 2 generations.

    Lucky it's only 10:30 here when he comes on. Good man.

    He had nothing but good to say about Romney, as Romney did him. Hopefully ALL will follow their examples.

    The President was re-elected with 55% of the female vote, 60% of the youth vote, 80% of the non-white vote & 40% of the white vote, with the white vote surprisingly only down 3% from 08.

    It looks like women were a strong factor in his win. Perhaps the Republican strategy of tacking to the radical right may be tempered by this shellacking. He only lost one battleground state.

    One of the commentators said that young people (under 30) voted for Kerry over Bush by 9 points and that this time the same demographic voted for Obama over Romney by 30 points, so the Republican party has lost a lot of ground with them over the last few years. Younger people are so far from the ancient GOP attitudes towards women, minorities, gay people....the GOP simply *has* to change.

    Short and sweet! Bed time. I wish everyone a GREAT night's sleep, and a positive, good future. You know we can get somewhere if we all demand it. A lot has been done tonight to restore that we do have impact and can get things done.

    This may happen no matter what party is in office. There are very few differences, and hardly any of them have the balls and brilliance to take a stand and not sound like a looney toon.

    America has no one to blame but itself for this pickle. Joe Schmoe was just as fine with borrowing for his own account as he was with sitting by while the gov't did it. Boo hoo.

    His opposition to marriage equality springs rather quickly to mind.

    I couldn't be happier!

    FYI, it was George W. Bush who got us into this terrible economy, Obama is working hard to dig us out. How quickly people forget.

    Barack Obama = 81,900
    Mitt Romney = 74,793

    Yeah, I was surprised that Obama kicked the shit out of Romney in Northern VA given how much support there was for Romney coming from the "Family Values" crowd which is largely Catholic and the wealthy voters in the area, who are also very much Catholic as well.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!
