    can't turn on the news anymore? You know, people who had their hopes and dreams set on Romney. I have close friends and family who were sure he was going to win...and now they are "current events challenged."

    Not sure how to handle this and how long this will last. Anyone have any ideas on what can be done?

    Start talking about "truth". Reject everything else. It is great to feel that we can feed all those in poverty, but the fact is, we can't. Do we take from the producers until no one has anything and everyone starves? Do we try to increase the producers, so that there is more to give?

    If we legalize the "undocumented", will it help or hurt the "middle class"?

    Bengazi is still be hidden from the Administration. When will the citizens find out what happened?

    etc, etc, etc.

    Yeah I've got a friend who's so pissed he deleted apps from his phone LOL.
    He's tuned out. Total and utter disgust.

    I chunked mine into the garbage 12 years ago. I grew up without one, had one through college, realized the complete waste of time that it is and chunked it.

    But time will heal things and he will be sorry he deleted the apps. It always does. The GOP will see the light, I hope, and make some ideology adjustment. If they listen to the Tea Baggers who insist that Romney lost cause he was not conservative enough, then they will get what they asked for.

    They have a fine line to walk in the coming days. But I am still concerned about the mental health and well being of some of the more ardent Romney supporters, family and friends included.

    It’s still very early.

    Most will come around in a few weeks.

    Soon they’ll be eagerly watching the news, and gleefully blaming the president for every bad thing that happens.

    lol, that's the problem with you libs. You think just because you won an election it means you are right and everyone else is wrong. I got news for ya jack ass, Bush won 2 elections as well, and he was a fucking idiot. Just because we lost does not mean we were wrong, it simply means the American people made the wrong choice.
