I think its pretty clear now that Obama won because America is addicted to the free stuff crappy working people provide for them.
There's lot of examples of government dependent Obama voters on the internet. Just google "Obama phone", "Obama money" and you will see exactly the mentality of the Obama voter.

The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help.
City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month's election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. (Click the video player to listen)
"Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that," said Watson. "Of course, not just that, but why not?"
Nearly 75 percent of Wayne County voters pulled the lever for Obama in November.
WOW, what a world we live in.
No wonder our country is going to crap.
Not to mention this is something like cash for votes????
Yep, the election wasn't lost on people voting for free crap. It was lost on that and other Govt members pushing for areas to vote, so they get free crap as well.

The White House has expressed no plans to bailout the cash-crunched city

DETROIT -- A Detroit City Council member who paid $68 in property taxes this year because city records indicate her home doesn't exist, said she thought damage caused by a tornado was the reason her bill was so low.
But JoAnn Watson couldn't recall exactly when the tornado struck her well-kept brick, Tudor-style home on the city's west side, saying it might have been 1993 or 2002. She said she was unaware of a city records discrepancy that has for the past decade listed the parcel as an empty lot, despite the home occupying the plot since 1926.
Owners of comparable homes pay $2,000 to $6,500 in property taxes. "I've been a target of a smear campaign," Watson told reporters gathered outside her home on Sunday. "... I pay my bills and whatever I was billed, I paid."

There are those that voted for Obama who were not concerned about getting "free stuff" in return,
You're right. Some of them were overly concerned with forcing other people to give other people stuff.

Not likely, if he ever realizes that the city is going to be sucking $650 MILLION DOLLARS out of the tax payers pockets so Mike Ilitch can build a new house for the [url=http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=411053]> RED WINGS
