      You seem to have very, very low standards.

      If God forbid, Obama wins a second term ... and our rights, and economy become decimated ... the only silver lining will be the thought of you Obama stooges ... and your children ... and your children's children, having to live in the third world country, which you are helping to create. If Obama gets reelected ... America is doomed. What a shame.

    Gaius, Exactly right. The MSM likes to pretend that it's a done-deal, but ousitde of the true believers in ultra-safe districts, most of our fearless representatives are more committed to keeping their seats, than to specific policy. Sunlight and mobilization should be sufficient. Might I suggest that besides disapproval of policy, writers mention their plans to contribute to, or better yet get out and work for their opponent in the next election cycle. Hit'm where it really hurts

    Carol,Bless you for being uplifting. I cried last night when he won, and again this monnirg when looking at our newspaper. It feels so dreaded.I look at my children and feel saddened for them.Like you, though, I do feel more inspired. I feel inspired to work harder to teach them morals and values, and respect for life.Let the good come that can, and the praying begin! (or continue)
