Of course, the best solution would be to get Citizens United overturned and these damn money hats out of the system, but until then I'll be fine with watching people who contributed to SuperPAC's bitching when their money didn't get the results they were promised.
I'm not surprised as this seems par for the course in politics for the last few years. They want to win by any means necessary. Big question is will that change or will they keep trying to do the same thing in 4 years.
I just can't get the mindset of people who think one party is saintly and the other is evil. The GOP and Democrats are both horribly corrupt and pull out thousands of dirty tricks to win elections. You're really unintelligent if you think the Democrats are any different.
For instance -- it would be nearly impossible to show that the democrats engaged in the same level of voter suppression that the GOP did. It's just not true.
There is a lot of this false equivalence nonsense floating around the political world. Both sides are the same. Both sides are equally guilty. Both sides are blah blah blah. That is rarely true. Both sides are almost never equal in detail.
I would say you are really unintelligent if you are unwilling to consider the nuance of how the parties operate to see the truth of the political system as it is today.

I've said several times if they abandon the social conservatism and their undying dedication to the rich, and go back to being true fiscal conservatives they will have a much better chance of getting elected.
I made a thread about the very fake disaster known as Voter Fraud. He actually said those things BEFORE the election. But because of the buzz of the election it didn't get any main stream focus till now. I think anyone who says we have a serious case of Voter Fraud is kidding themselves. They wanted the court to block early voting. People who vote early tend to favor liberal and Republicans more often vote on election day.
It's a fake program with a real solution. I been posting about this kind of stuff while closley watching the elections unfold. Each day I turned on MSNBC or CNN. Ran through numerous articles to get the whole picture and not just bits and pieces. I think anyone who watched the elections saw a transparent way the GOP tried to block Obama from being re-elected.
I am glad the super pacs lost
I am glad voter suppression lost
I am glad the tenants of our republic had won
Lets hope the GOP leaves behind this old tired men who still take Machiavellian thought to literally, hold to pledges rather than there people, kiss the feet of the rich rather than shake the hand of the people, and disown entire demographics because it does not fit into their "world"
I may not be in love with Obama, I never get that attached to a political figure like some do, I would love to see the GOP actually modernize

You have to remember that in the previous election he was a brand new US senator and the first major black candidate running against a long time US senator who's party controlled the executive office for the previous eight years. People tend to shy away from rapid changes like that, with only some regard for the consequences.
IMO, with the way that the last 4 years events went, the only way that Obama could have lost the election is if he continued to make a fool of himself by underestimating Romney like he did during the first debate.
