I wonder at what point it will sink in for Republicans that they should have voted Ron Paul...but they chose losers in McCain and Romney instead.
Hefficide, do you notice you've put "Hope" and "Change" in the same sentence? It sounds familiar, somehow. I'm also uncertain about his ability to understand errors and change course. You'd think the 2010 elections would have told him he was going the wrong way. He's also been reluctant to admit error. I don't see any reason why he would change.
My hope is that in term two he will come to understand those errors and move to effect some positive change.
He still has an obstructionist Congress, the Republicans have taken the House solidly. Does it really matter if it's his fault or not? He'll have the same situation, with, I expect, the same results.
I honestly do not feel that Obama has lived up to his promise - I don't fully fault him for it. An obstructionist Congress worked against things - and I think that Obama tried to "play ball" with interests that he should not have - such as Super PACs and the lobby.
karen 61560, I think it is an issue, perhaps not the most pressing one (that may be the economy), but a real one all the same. We do not have, as far as I know, any policy to deal with people who will not accept our Bill of Rights. Their influence is spreading through Africa and the Far East. We even have examples of that starting to appear in the US, with Michigan being a leading example. I'm not sure you want to go into detail, although we could, but this strikes me as one more area in which difficult decisions have been left for "later." My fear is that "later" is knocking on the door.
I hardly think the spread of Islam is an issue. Do you really ?

No 'I voted' stickers in Dakota County
The Sioux City Journal ( http://(link tracking not allowed)/UvKYfC) says the northeast Nebraska county has a stash of stickers on hand, but Clerk Ted Piepho (PEYE'-foh) says they can't hand them out because they're not bilingual.
Piepho says a federal mandate requires all election items in Nebraska to be offered in English and Spanish. He says the department didn't have the budget to buy new bilingual stickers this year, so it's not offering them to voters on Tuesday.

Just to update on Florida. Obama's lead is increasing and most of the conservative counties are fully counted while Miami-Dade is only reporting 54%.

Just in case I disappear... It's not out of frustration, panic, or anger.
I've had a major upper respiratory infection for about 2 or 3 weeks. I held out today for a long time, but the symptoms are getting really bad - and so I am downing a batch of Theraflu nighttime.
Although I am now afraid I'll pass out and wake up with a Republican POTUS, Congress, and with Beezzer standing over me with my new avatar in hand.
