Continued gridlock is fine with me

Sorry libs but there is no mandate for Obama and the democrats.  there was a small victory in real numbers and that does not turn things i to any kind of mandate.  We will all get to see the results of a real  mandate now that California has given the democrats a super majority in the State Senate.  We have seen what a simple majority has done to the once Golden State.  When the left is in control, without checks and balances, we get Albania, post independence.  Nationally, there is still a roadblock for the democrats because the House of Representatives is Republican.

If the Republicans cave because they think Obama and the D's were given some sort of unfettered hegemony, then that is when we will see the destruction of the Republican Party.  If they hold fast then they will be back in a couple of years.  I am not that worried by gridlock.  It keeps all those "good intentions" of our legislators from taking more of our freedoms.

Here is the popular vote totals and percentages for the Presidency.  If anyone can turn over the manure and find a pony for the democrats, please let us all know.

  1. What is sad about your final state of the popular vote is that 235,000,000 million people are age eligible to vote but don't or don't even bother to register because they don't have anyone that represents their interests to vote for.

    1. And you asked them? Give us a break with your ridiculous comments for a while.

    2. The majority of people don't agree with the either corporate parties, Democratic or Republican. If the independents ever came together we would lose the paradigm of least worst politics and a true democratic representative government will form. Your ideas are are so far on the fringe they will fall into obscurity as will team sport mentality.

    3. BenE, you are truly an ignoramus. You don't have a clue of that which you yap about. Judging from your vote counts I would say you are in the miniscule extreme fringe of the country. My goodness, are you truly this dumb about how the place works? I supported a set of candidates that actually won. Sure Romney was beaten but the rest were a success. Can you say that? Nope.

    4. Todd,
      You really are clueless aren't you? Are you familiar with the expressions

      "Fiddle While Rome Burns"
      or
      "Shuffling The Deck Chairs On The Titanic"

      Wake Up!

    5. BenE, I have more knowledge and intellect in my little finger about the real world than you will ever gather. I actually was an elected person with responsibilities and not just a bloviator like you. When you get some real world experience, you know, a clue or two, get back to me.

    6. Todd,
      You still don't get it. There is a reason why congress is filled with 99% plus D's and R's, it doesn't have to do with good ideas or having a clue either. Go along to get along. I wish you would actually use that intellect online instead of your usual insults and moronic statements. How is your record in partisan races outside of the county you were born? As for real world experience, how many years of your life have you lived and spent outside of rural California? It is a big world out there with many different cultures, societies, and ideas but you have only really experienced one and openly oppose anything that might be different than the culture from which you grew up in. Although I have run businesses and have worked since thirteen years old being a public official has to do with representing people with different interests, I think this is where you don't get it. I have lived in many different regions of the US and cultures over my life.

  3. You have a nice blog Todd. This place will dry up to nothing with your selected refusual of posts that bite deep into the little right wing fantasy world. Maybe you can recruit Karl Rove onboard as guest commentator...his other career is over. Bye..

    1. Jen, you obviously know I have been deleting the nasty anonymous person. Is that you? So, you have alerted me that you are in cahoots with that person/you and so, your pal will not be allowed to post here anymore as anonymous. If the person gives me verifiable name and email, and stops the ad homines and vulgar language, perhaps I will allow you/them back here.

      Regarding Rove, he got two elections for Bush so he has a track record of winning. He has now lost and like every human with a brain he will move on. I still preeminence his victories over Gore and Kerry. Sweet!

  4. Oh by the way, Todd. I love it when I win. I won on my FL prediction, my overall election prediction, and my overall assessment of our great nation. And I won here on nearly every other issue. But then again, it was you and Walt. Not exactly tough debating opponents..:)

    I won. America won. Bye.

  5. The Right hates Nate Silver because he deals with plain mathematical locic and facts and not propaganda. They refused to believe him before the election because they convinced themselves that anything that went against their imaginary conservative theories and beliefs must be false. Fueled by Faux News and the thousands of conservative media outlets, the Right just lives in a bubble, shielded against commonsense, science, and facts. Five thirty Eight reported exactly what would happen with the election. I posted before that it was important for you to listen to him. You refused and clung to your old ways. What can anyone say to you at this point? What many of us say to you is - "It's sad how stuck you and Walt are.

    1. Sad? I am a happy fellow. I do not live my life as you apparently do in the political game. The R's held the House so we have a split government. America is saved from too much liberalism and that makes me a happy camper. I would suggest you are the sad one. Not only do you gloat over a victory (bad manners in the PC world, LOL!) you are ill informed about the American governance system. You must have slept through civics class.

    2. ignorance is bliss, please don't try and force your ignorance upon the rest of us.

    3. Force? I persuade with my words and it works real well BenE. I never force anyone to do anything. Unlike your ilk who have passed thousands of laws to control the free spirited Americans, and unlike your ilk who has taxed the poor working folks into servitude, with the threat of force as we know, you are the one trying to use a police state. So, maybe a little more schooling in critical thought would do you some good. You should spend your time over at the purple blog with the rest of the nutcases. This blog is for the intelligent folks.

  7. The election was altered by Sandy for sure, an Act of God.
    the LIBS showed the difference between the candidates before,
    during and after the storm... they say the differences were 1 to
    2 % between them... numbers...

    Sandy, act of God?, made a difference.

  8. Sandy had nothing to do with Obama's win - nothing. In May of this year the popular vote percentage was 50.6 for Obama and 48.3 for Romney. Four days before the election,according to Nate Silver at 538, it was 50.5% for Obama and 48.4% for Romney. All the obscene billions spent by the losers was having no effect. The American people can not be bought. Nate Silver's (538) polls were spot on from beginning to end. As you desperately look for excuses to explain away your loss America's win will continue to move forward. The bullying politics of the past is dead.

    1. Well I thought your ilk newspapers and TV stations said it did? They all said Romney had momentum and then the storm hit. So your argument is with your buds in the lamestream media not me. Obama had a better ground game and eight months, a billion dollars in negative ads against Romney and a lamestream media bunch of stenographers. Romney lost but a 2.5 percent victory by Obama is no mandate. Remember that is what you all told us when Bush won in 2004? So, adios anonymous poster, you are outta here.

  9. When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. LOL!!!!
