Obama wins

President Barack Obama has won Ohio again, capturing the swing state after a hard-fought battle with Republican Mitt Romney.
Associated Press
Nov 6, 2012

 

Obama, who also won Ohio in 2008, claims the swing state's 18 electoral votes.

Both sides poured major time and resources into the battleground state that has been among the nation's most contested in recent presidential elections. It was considered pivotal for both.

No Republican has won the White House without Ohio. The last president elected despite losing Ohio was Democrat John F. Kennedy in 1960.

Ohio has been site of much of the advertising spending by the campaigns and outside supporters. It also was among the most-visited states by the campaigns.

In addition to Ohio, Obama captured battleground states Iowa and Colorado on his way to the 270 electoral votes he needed.

Obama will again be dealing with a divided Congress. Democrats maintained control of the Senate and Republicans likely will again control the House. Among the most pressing matters is the so-called fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts scheduled to hit in January. Economists have warned that if they aren't averted, the nation could face another recession.

I wasted my vote again.

Congrats Barack.

Randy_Marsh

YAY!! Its over, The status quo has been retained and we can all expect nothing more than blame, failure and taxes being raised!!

Bess

Really - That's funny because 36 hours ago the right was predicting victory and now you want us to take your new prediction seriously?

verdict

Well, Bess..in all fairness, the Romney prediction of victory relied heavily on voters knowing chapter and verse about Obama's history and his Executive activities as President. Translated: relied heavily on voters paying complete attention.

As far as predicting what Obama will do with his 2nd term..we can be sure it will involve spewing more demagoguery. Anyone who watched "2016: Obama's America" has a pretty good idea where his heart likely remains.

Bess

So you say verdict - living in your information cone. What I observed the night of the election was Rove questioning the vote and the prediction. He said nothing about an information deficit. Further, it is an observable fact that Democratic voters - you know the 47% - were paying attention. They knew they had to vote and were standing in long lines to do so.
The movie "2016: Obama's America" is an example of the information cone. Those in the cone watch and do not question the verasity of the content. The truth is as long as we - the citizens of this nation on right and left - do not leave our information sources and demand facts we will never be able to set this nation straight.

verdict

I have no information source of choice. None whatsoever. I use Google. I have no specific sites bookmarked at all. I listen to all sides and consider all the angles. 9 times out of 10, this enables me to easily identify those who are biased due to their bookmarking of sites they frequently return to.

As far as the "2016: Obama's America" movie..I do not think you've even watched it. It uses Obama's own book and is narrated by Obama, himself (via the audio book version), as well as the producer, D'Souza, who is an American that was born in India.
D'Souza was born into the same conditions that Kenya faces, and yet he emerges with an entirely different view of America than Obama describes in his book. The movie builds up slowly but, in the end, all the details matter.
The movie is highly credible, considering two things: #1 It uses Obama's own words (in his own voice) against him. #2 The movie is a reaction, by D'Souza, to Obama's book. D'Souza, who was born into the same conditions that Obama's fellow Kenyans were born into.
Seriously, it is a VERY interesting movie. No one should have voted before at least considering the point of view of that movie.

Marsh. So mellow. Increased lead in Senate, seats gained in House. The greatest concern for your concerns is that we have to face your concerns with the lame ducks.

Randy_Marsh

Office cat
That might be a good thing if they would quit spending.

John Harville

Randy.
Must we remind you it is the now-lameduck Congress (Boehner, Cantor, McConnell et al) who put forth sequestration and huge military cuts to be automatic?

Randy_Marsh

John
and that detracts from the fact your taxes are going up how? Not increasing the debt is a good thing now wouldnt you agree?

verdict

You are naming a bunch of Republicans in the House. And yet, it is the Senate who has rendered 30+ jobs and economy-related bills dead on arrival.

Democrat Tim Geithner tells Paul Ryan "we don't have a plan..we just don't like yours." It would seem that anything which allows Capitalism to survive in America becomes "dead on arrival" in the Senate.

44846GWP

Yes! The country wins!

verdict

Which country? BRICS?
When Obama says "the rich should pay a little extra to help the poor," I would bet that his heart is adding "..but even poor Americans are rich compared to Kenyans."

Romney gave a classy concession speech, I'll give him that. He actually looked like he meant what he said, which was an interesting change for him.

the office cat

Nothing like a classy pro-forma passive-aggressive speech to be the final memory .

John Harville

The real 'tell' will be when next he speaks. "I pray the President can..." Cat's right... classic passive/aggressive behavior.

princedenny

4 more years of this crap literally makes me sick to my stomach. Can't wait to see the cesspool Sandusky will be in 2016.

John Harville

for the less-enlightened among us, could you explain the connect between President Obama and Sandusky's 'cesspool' in 2016?

real talk

I told you

KURTje

Told you. To the Register....please leave all posts up, let all see the real hearts of winners & losers.

verdict

What exactly do you think any of us won?

wiredmama222

It certainly took Romney forever to give that classy concession speech. What he waited for was beyond comprehension? It was nice, short.

The President gave a nice speech as well. I hope he manages to get something done this time with the stagnate congress with which he will again have to deal in Washington. I hear Bohner is already growling and grousing. Ah, nothing like teamwork. I guess it will take "recall petitions" of certain Senators and Congressman who do not play well with others this time; seriously. Enough of this partisan junk....work out the problems and get on with it.

the office cat

"The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president's first term, they have simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do together with a Congress that restored balance to Washington after two years of one-party control.

"Now it's time for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely divided Senate, step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment, and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office.

"To the extent he wants to move to the political center, which is where the work gets done in a divided government, we'll be there to meet him half way."== Mitch McConnell

What he waited for was Karl Rove and the rest of staff to accept the Ohio figures. Remember, the Senate and House both increased Dem members and downed the Tea Party in many states.

Congrats voters. Four more years of this? Nation of IDIOTS.

shucks

If Romney won,this nation would have been an absolute disgrace in the eyes of the world.
Oh,Pakistan and Afgahnistan would have liked it because they hate us.

Randy_Marsh

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Castro, Chavez and Kim Il-jong are happy though.

shucks

starryeyes83

Yep, that's a good one, Jay Leno calls "Ima nutjob". That one's my favorite.

verdict

@4shizzle Wait, what? You think that Afghanistan likes Obama after he surged our troop numbers in their country? Wow, the ignorance is stunning.
Then again, you could be right. A number of people in the Muslim community seem to be under the assumption that Obama is their "caliphate." To them, as long as Obama is believed to be a double-agent for the Islamic cause..he can do no sin in their eyes.

You think Obama is not disgracing us? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v... Listen carefully to what General Wesley Clark told "Democracy Now" on March 2nd, 2007 (beginning at 05:38 into the vid). Now try to tell me again how Obama is making us look any better than Bush at all. SMH and, again, the ignorance is stunning.

By the way, some of you should probably watch the entire video (less than 15 mins). Very informative and thought-provoking for those who vote without knowing much about their candidates (aside from their views on gay marriage or abortion).
It also pushes the idea to investigate and start speaking up before no one will dare speak up anymore..which is the only responsible thing we can do, with what information is available to the public, when there is a good chance that these people are about to get us into a war with Russia and/or China (over Syria and Iran).

shucks

@ verdict
It was supposed to be a joke.

The idea was if Romney were president, the USA would be punished by having him as president and our enemies would be happy to punish us by proxy.

.

shucks

@ verdict

What you wrote is confusing and confused.
"...To them, as long as Obama is believed to be a double-agent for the Islamic cause..he can do no sin in their eyes."
That's a pretty wacked statement.

Also I watched that video.
Are you saying to REVOLT?

verdict

@4shizzle It is not confusing or wack, when you consider that:
A). The Muslims' Koran (or Quran or w/e) permits them to commit any sin without being judged by their god, as long as it is being done to "fool the infidels" as part of an effort to bring them down.
B). There are Muslims who believe that Obama is one of them, and believe that he is doing just that.
I, myself, highly doubt it. I think he is just a player and is playing all sides of the religious fence (as well as other issues).

verdict

@4shizzle Define revolt. When you put it in capitals, it makes me think that you mean a physical revolt. And nothing in my comment, nor the video I linked, advocates physical revolt. You insult my intellect by even suggesting it.

I feel that you either: A). did not fully hear the video out or, B). are trying to paint me out as a "radical" merely because part of the video demonstrated that Obama is making us look just as bad as Bush did (most crucially, in the eyes of China and Russia). Perhaps the insult to Obama caused the big picture to escape you? : P

Try watching it again (as well as reading my post again). Your first clue should have been where he said that we need to reach out to our police and military and form a stronger bond with them (discussing these issues with those among them who take an interest).
Another obvious clue was at the end of the video where they offer to help you get involved BY offering tools and resources to write articles and do interviews on these topics. Is it now considered a "REVOLT" to build websites, write articles and interview ppl now?

The guy is saying to get people involved in research and speaking out and spreading the discussion of what our leaders are doing. In fact, if you pay undivided attention, he is trying to raise awareness to a level of "critical mass" to AVOID violent uprisings..to raise people's awareness and get them OUT of this foolish "I don't care about research and discussion because I will just defend myself if it comes down to it" type of mindset.

4 more years Obama. Nice work Ohio. Job well done.

happycamper01

I wrote on my FB page yesterday morning: "Thank God it is finally election day because I am tired of the political commercials. I hope Obama wins but if not I will respect and support any President who is fairly elected by the American people." What I see on these blogs are a bunch of poor losers who never learned to lose gracefully and graciously. I also see people who do not how to show respect. One does not have to like someone to respect their position of authority. Plus, maybe Obama didn't do the job you feel he should have but he lost the state he was born in, Michigan, and he lost the state he was governor of, and he lost all of the New England states surrounding Ma so what does that tell you? If he had done a great job there he would have won those states. I lived there when he was governor. I was not impressed. Try being like Romney who, although he waited far too long to give his concession speech, he did so respectfully, politely, and with humility. If you like him so much follow his example. Congratulations Mr. President and thank-you for your humble and respectful concession, Former Governor Romney.

I wonder who Obama will blame for the mess he inherited this time?

shucks

Have you not heard? we are getting better even WITHOUT the help of the Repubs.

There you go again

Yep, Republicans need to find their own illegitimate son, seal his school records, hide his birth certificate for a few years, elect him to a law office without writing any law articles and get ready for 2016!

Obama, now he has REALLY inherited a mess!

happycamper01

That comment shows your ignorance. People of all races, sexual preference, and gender voted for Obama. I am a white American of German ancestry. I voted for our President. I know African Americans, Hispanics, women, and LGBT citizens who voted for Romney. There are some who may have voted for him based solely on the color of his skin but you should not generlize your feelings to a whole race.

the office cat

Free speech carries with it responsibility. It does not give you the right to slander an entire race or belief group just because you definitely NOT 'just thinkin'.

It's not slander, it's fact. Over 90% of blacks voted for Obama. Name 1 thing that 90% of any race agrees on...

Obama says he will reach across the aisle to work for the good of all Americans. That he will work to unite the country. Just rewind the tape from his speech in 2008 and play it again. That lasted for about two months last time. Won't last that long this time. He wants to redistribute the wealth. He doesn't want to make all Americans wealthy, he wants to make all Americans POOR. Sad, sad day for U.S.A.

starryeyes83

It's very simple... most women will not tolerate men dictating to them whether or not thay can have an abortion. That's a personal choice. It sure beats having multiple baby factories and sperm donors for more of the same generational welfare problems. Not to mention taxing our natural resources. ( most especially water). This planet and this country simply cannot sustain much more.

And if you think it can, prove it to me.

verdict

Republicans had full control of Congress from 2000-2006 and a Republican as President. If they wanted to ban abortion, G.W. Bush's 2nd term (with a majority of SCOTUS Justice appointees) would have been the time to do it. Don't you think?

Are you saying that women voted for Obama because they thought that the Republicans would ban abortion? I would hope not. Not only is it very low-class of them (considering the myriad of reasons NOT to vote for Obama coupled with the fact that Abortion DOES need to be regulated)..but, it also insults their intelligence (considering my first paragraph).

John Harville

@verdict. There weren't enough justices to uphold a new law that would uphold a law limiting a woman's right to choice. And the Repubs had Congress from 1994 - a few years being veto-proof. Romney knew he'd get a chance to appoint a coupla conservative justices.
Which brings up the point that Obama will get the chance to appoint 1 or even 2 - which will change the direction of the court for generations and Roberts won't be able to stop it. GOBAMA!!!!

verdict

I wouldn't count on it. In the end, the military can intervene. Who will stop them?

Rush has always said he is never wrong - he has predicted everything exactly the way it happened. This is going to throw a monkey wrench into that statement now. And it proves that he is NOT always right. Those guys still think if they say something enough it will become fact and actually happen. Sorry Rush - go crawl under that rock you came from - and don't forget to take your insurance provided viagra with you.

How many conservatives actually listen to Rush Limbaugh? I highly doubt he is even a real Republican. He is like Super Judge who comments here on the SR.

So the rich aren't getting richer under Mr. Obama?

I do not remember saying that. And I don't care who is rich and who isn't.

Contango

@ sanduskysteve:

So the wealthy Democrats aren't borrowing, taxing and printing money to fill their own pockets?

They redistribute our country's wealth to themselves and you don't care?

So why do you vote for 'em?

sanduskysteve

I think the redistributing of wealth issue is not real so I would care if I thought it was a wide spread issue. It is not. If you want an example of redistributing wealth - what about Romney/Ryans ides to take the money from the middle class and give it to the rich in a form of tax break and elimination - or HUGE tax refunds when they already are making billions in profits they aren't paying any taxes on - such as Exxon. That's a huge distribution of wealth. And then you add the gross stealing of our money at THEIR gas stations - and it just increases the issue.

Randy_Marsh

So bailing out the banks at 40 billion a month till the end of time with your money is somthing you agree with? Its redistribution done by this admin so its gotta be good huh?

John Harville

The greatest 'redistribution' in America in the last two years is the hundreds of millions from the Kochs and Trump and Adelson to media and their friends like Rupert Murdoch.

sanduskysteve

I believe it was Bush who actually did the banks bailouts. Stop trying to protect your leader.

shucks

@ contango

So?

John Harville

Yeah,... there are a lot of media delighted with the 'redistribution of the wealth' of Adelson, Rove, the Kochs and others....

John Harville

Yes. It is good to know "so many wealthy..." VOTED. When it comes down to the bottom line - voting is the great equalizer. Adelson has one vote just like me.

shucks

http://newmediajournal.us/indx.p... What part of them not even looking at a budget dont you understand? They are useing the Debt limit as a budget and upping it every year.They even shot down Obama's budget when it went to the senate. "In a later retaliatory vote forced by Republicans, the Senate achieved rare bipartisan unanimity in rejecting Obama's budget plan on a 97-0 vote. The defeat was expected." http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS...
The fact is the senate will not do a budget and the debt will rise, It will be on the Democrats head NOT Bush's

shucks

I doubt that you really know what's going on, but you make sounds like you do.

Randy... it all depends on what the Ducks do with the sequestration on which they insisted and which drastic cuts go into effect January 1.

The sequestration was the threat if they have failed, They did and we will pay. But on the other hand they may save some money which is not entirly a bad thing.
