    Unfortunately Obama still had over a million votes more than Romney.

    The electoral system still sucks because the upper East coast and West coast will still suck the life out of the working class in the rest of the country.

    50% of the people in this country live in the Eastern time zone - add California,Oregon and Washington to that group and you don't have to count votes anywhere else.

    Land mass means nothing. Big cities (union, bennies, and entitlements), minorities (ditto minus unions), colleges, women under 30, and your basic libs made the difference.

    Overall, "O" won the popular vote by 1.2%.

    Thank the 70's yuppies in their la-la land.

    Did the electoral system suck in 2004 when Bush did not win the popular vote?

    Sure did when Gore won the pop vote but not the electoral, didn't it?

    It was 2000, not 2004. Bush ran against Kerry in 04 and the vote was not that close.

    Republicans are not protesting the system, we understand it.

    The democrats presented Romney as a person who thought only of the rich closed companies for money, and was going to outlaw abortion and deny a women the right to birth control.

    The Democrat Party lied and has created half a nation of dependent people.

    Class envy, resentment and envy is a powerful tool in winning elections. Appealing to the baser instincts is always a winning strategy. Most humans are not very well morally developed.

    Regarding the election, instead of whining and wimpy behavior, Republicans can do two things:

    1. Move to a Red State and deprive Blue State coffers from sales tax and state income tax revenues.

    2. Join the NRA! We only have 4 million members. Imagine what we could do during mid-term elections if we had 40 million members!

    Stop whining and ensure their defeat during mid-term elections!

    Obummer thinks with 50.2 % of the vote, that he has a mandate. Well, B.S.. The only mandate we have is for Vaseline and K-Y Jelly. Boener and the rest have to up against Harry Reid, and I think it may get ugly. Charlie

    The only mandate that exists is the one you put to you Congressional Representative . He/she represent you and nobody else outside your district.

    Tell your rep what is on your mind. We still hold the majortiy in the field of 535 representatives.

    We can tie the hands of Obama's administration if you can get your message across to your rep. Contact him, because somebody else in your district will be.

    Pray for gridlock
