    Whites Stayed Home and Re-Elected Obama | Right Wing News

    This really isn't “news” as all too many of us saw it coming. Romney's campaign gurus took the white vote for granted and spent too much time reaching out to those who weren't going to vote for him anyway. When one thinks about it – a little over 50% of eligible voters bothered to register and a little over that 50% even bothered to go to the polls! What does that say about us as a nation?

    Dick Morris foolishly assumes that the 7 million whites who didn't vote would all have cast their votes for Romney.

    Maybe they were just too busy to vote.

    Or too lazy.

    I am a white male & I did not vote for Romney. He is a bailed out government subsidized entitled asshole who sold out as many jobs to China as he possibly could. He promised to increase medicare by $716 billion. He also wants to increase military spending. He believes the middle class should continue to subsidize the rich. He would rather continue to subsidize Big Box retailers who import from China than subsidize exporters who bring home the money & jobs.

    I don't like Obama, but I hate Mitt Romney.

    I'm a white middle class man as well and I voted Obama. In fact virtually every white person I know did as well. That was the best thing ever watching Dick Morris trying to explain himself to a shocked and very ass hurt Fox News talking head the day after the election. This country is moving beyond race.

    This reminds me of the Manhattan socialite shocked by Nixon's win. "Nobody I know voted for him", she said, perplexed.

    Also, it's not so much that we're supporters of Obama or like him that much. It's that the GOP really is that fucking scary.
