    To be honest, it was a list of caricatures as candidates for republican nomination. Bunch of ignoramuses, backwards ass anti abortion, anti gay, anti Latino, and old school republican has beens. What was needed was new blood / new generation that mainstream America could relate to. Each of the candidates had his her her own major defects and the republicans ended up choosing the best in a bunch of bad choices. Romney's third debate on foreign policy was as bad as Obama's first. The other issues I believe contributed to this loss were people still blamed Bush for what had happened to the economy when Obama took over and were fearful (correctly or incorrectly) that Romney would take us back to those days again, and of course race played a major factor as all the blacks and minorities in highly populated urban areas came out in droves to vote for Obama. All in all we can credit the Democrat machine for an amazing ground game across the country and areas they needed to get the vote out, and a special award to David Axelrod for the genius behind this machine.

    What worries me is what kind of country will we be left with after four more years of Obama.

    Condolences would have been in order had the radical rightwingnuts gotten the win.

    Now maybe they'll learn to play nice.

    Thanks anyway

    I don't think you should be worried about what kind of country we will be in 4 years. I agree race was a major factor. I think Romney only did well with one demographic.

    Yes, an outside observer would pretty much surmise that America is indeed fucked.
