1). I'm so proud - kept quiet the last month of the campaign

2). Held my nose and voted.

3). No, of course I didn't vote for Romney or Obama -- I said I held my nose, not that I wore a hazmat suit. . .

4). I was impressed, though, that the major-party candidates showed some bipartisanship

4a). Romney was eager to lie about Obama's performance and what O would do in the next four years. In a gesture of solidarity, Obama was eager to lie about Obama's performance and what O would do in the next four years.

4b). Obama was eager to lie about Romney's performance and what Romney would do in the next four years. In a gesture of solidarity, Romney was eager to lie about Romney's performance and what Romney would do in the next four years.

5). And they both addressed the challenges facing the country. With detail and conviction.



I'm very happy


I should find medical marijuana and a nice man to marry and settle down with. We could then gamble at the local casino

So some progress IS real


Cheers to all. May the out results tonight lead to better outcomes than any of us has imagined.

It's undeniable that both sides engaged in distortions, but I think it's equally clear that Romney was far worse, both in quality and quantity.

I'm relieved Obama won. With all his faults, I have no doubt we'll be in better shape than if Romney won. As miserable a politician as Romney is, even worse are the cranks and nutjobs that would have filled his administration.

Since only two people could have won, I'm glad the better won did.

"PolitiFact has chronicled 19 “pants on fire” lies by Mr. Romney and 7 by Mr. Obama since 2007, but Mr. Romney’s whoppers have been qualitatively far worse: the “apology tour,” the “government takeover of health care,” the “$4,000 tax hike on middle class families,” the gutting of welfare-to-work rules, the shipment by Chrysler of jobs from Ohio to China. Said one of his pollsters, Neil Newhouse, “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers.”

To be sure, the Obama campaign has certainly had its own share of dissembling and distortion, including about Mr. Romney’s positions on abortion and foreign aid. But nothing in it — or in past campaigns, for that matter — has equaled the efforts of the Romney campaign in this realm. Its fundamental disdain for facts is something wholly new."
