    Hmmm interesting.... I seem to remember certain people jumping up and down in sheer frustration just 4 years ago telling us to all GET OVER IT.

    Hell I remember someone telling me to GET OVER IT in a thread a few days ago..... ;)

    I wonder where the time has gone...

    What on earth are you talking about? Get over what? Barry won. No one disputes this fact. I don't see a single person here bitching that it was a vast left wing conspiracy, or that he "stole the election".

    He won. I think you need to get over it.

    One thing I cannot understand about the left, even when they get their way they are still unhappy.

    Get over it!

    The dems have been a failure every time that they have controlled the presidency and congress.

    The 'Carter Backlash" resulted in the Reagan Presidency and the 'Clinton Backlash' swept in Newt Gingrich and he Republican Revolution.

    This is most recently evidenced in the last 2 years of democrat control, which has us, well... where we are at present.

    Barry's been P E for two days and both days, SM is DOWN.

    LOL, what at all about the fact that your candidate got his ass beat by a community organizer makes you think I am unhappy right now?

    You're just messing with me right? You really think I have ANYTHING at all to be unhappy about right now? :D

    Well to quote those that have raised the Popular vote issue in the past, in reality Pop Vote wise, it was quite even.

    Of course you do. You'll never be satisfied. Mark my words, things that Barry does well, you'll take credit for. Things he does not, well, that's 8 years of Bush/Cheney.

    Anyone here old enough to remember getting "12 years of Reagan/Bush" shoved down your throats on a daily basis?

    Democrats for the most part are angry people. Nothing makes them happy. Even when they get their way they remain eternally ungrateful and irritable.

    I'm glad you finally decided to admit that the sum of Obama's experience is that of a community organizer.

    I'm head of the local PTA, can I be President next?

    Firstly, Mia, I believe you were among those most vigorously protesting that the 2000 election wasn't "stolen." I thought the popular vote was irrelevant?

    Secondly, yes, with an electoral margin of 2 to 1, well - I call it a landslide.

    Finally, I wouldn't call a 53% - 46% (64,206,510/56,611,357 - an edge of 7.5+ million people) split of the popular vote "quite even."

    Why yes I am! And yes, I'm feeling quite feisty today. When you get denied a raise because your boss is worried that his $250k income is going shrink now, you tend to get a little pissed....at least he promised to fire all the Obama supporters first!

    Tell him to pay out his income in dividends to stock holders as income instead of salaries.

    You know, every time I think about coming in this thread something tells me "don't feed the trolls". But alas here I am :D

    Here's my point, and I just wish SOMEONE would explain this to me....

    Why on earth do you guys think you have ANY credibility to talk about ANY other party or candidate after the past 8 years? Do you not realize that your party is literally guilty of EVERYTHING you are accusing the dems of along with giving us the gift of the worst president in history? You are the people who voted for Bush... PROUDLY.... TWICE. Why should anyone think your opinion is even remotely sound?

    You don't follow? Here let me give you an example of the hilarious irony I see every time you make a post!

    Umm....

    A) He's not even the president yet.

    B) George Bush STILL IS the president and is LITERALLY the only one between those 2 that could actually do something about it.... :D How do you feel about that?

    C) Historically there is always market fluctuation during Presidential transition periods. I mean seriously. Are you THAT desperate to find something negative to say about Obama before he's even in the White House that you didn't even TRY to research that?

    What are you going to say tomorrow when the markets are up? Thank God for Bush?

    It's so sad. What a joke. :D:(

    No but if you manage to rustle up yourself a mayorship in Wassila, you betcha!

    I'm sure you realize my reference to him being a community organizer was meant to exaggerate the enormity of his win even more in order to get under certain conservatives' skin...... Wait why am I explaining this, you're an adult... OF COURSE YOU KNEW THAT!

    But it felt good to think you had a point for a minute there huh? ;)

    I used to think that, then I put NPT and a few others on ignore. Problem solved.

    Do I really have to point this stuff out again?

    Fannie, Freddie, CRA, Carter, Clinton, FDR, great society. Starting to ring a bell? Pelosi, Frank, Reid. Should I go on?

    You don't read. Here, let me give you an example. Talk about Hilarious.



    Who said he is? Let me help you with the abbreviations.

    P E = President Elect

    The president can no more change the SM then he can adjust interest rates. The Fed Does that.

    What you fail to see is market reaction to an event. You are going to see a huge sell off by those in fear of higher capital gains.

    That's because of one thing.


    Its not a fluctuation, its a REACTION.

    If we are not attacked tomorrow, I will say Thank God for Bush, which is the primary source of my solace within the current administration.

    See, told you you would never be happy. You're still sulking.

    :D Haha no no you missed it dude. He was going on about how increase voter turnout favors the Republicans and proceeded to point at the past 2 elections. I pointed out that Al Gore had actually won the popular vote and he proceeded to suffer what I can only describe as a conservative seizure as he went wild telling me to get over it, GEORGE BUSH WON! I'm like dude I know but Al Gore won the popular vote which makes your argument that Repubs benefit from higher turnout absurd. Then he's all GET OVER IT!! YOU DON'T KNOW THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE... YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE!!!


    Funny doesn't even begin to describe that exchange between us in that thread. Ahh memories :D

    Oh, I saw that, George, and found that ridiculous as well - I think what I linked to was an earlier spat with Grim, myself, Mia, RobJones, on the same thing.

    Just finding it ironic as hell that in one breath, it's an appeal to the [sic] "quite even" popular vote, and on the other, it's "popular vote means NOTHING!"
