lol - I posted this story in another thread.

This woman is clearly an idiot. She's in AZ which went for Romney by 54%. Does she really think 1 vote more for Romney would have changed the electoral college results?

Total idiot who can't do math, doesn't understand the system, etc... Gotta love America.

I'm sure it has absolutely nothing to do with the election and everything to do with personal problems. Either she's suffering from something like depression, their marriage has been on the rocks, or likely it's both. I actually feel really sorry for this couple. I am happy the president won re-election but I do not relish seeing people needlessly suffer like this. She should have been getting some serious help and they should have been in couples counseling. At this point she needs help, without question. I hope the husband is able to recover and quickly and painlessly as possible and she is able to get the help she needs.

I think it's stupid the media is making it about the election. People should have enough common sense and compassion to see through the stupid headlines.

What the electoral map would have looked like if only white men had voted.

White Male Vote Only Nov 2012

Svelte - that explains the flummoxed responses, post election. They didn't count on "urban" voters, and women voters.

lol!

Maybe what it shows that old white men mostly talk to old white men, and they fooled themselves into believing the whole country felt as they did.

Our neighbors threw an election party. They had a big Romney sign in their yard. All the cars on the street had gone home by 10. I am still unclear how the polls showed him losing but the right fooled themselves into believing otherwise.

Then again, maybe that explains a lot about the way they think...

I'm WM but living in HNL, and interacting with people I knew better. Anybody who paid attention could have predicted the outcome.

I wonder what it would have looked like if only black men had voted?

It's sadly amusing that people actually spend time thinking about politicians--and giving them so much power in their lives--as this story so clearly illustrates.

IMO--a much better use of valuable time would be to think about how you are going to make your next million--and how to keep as much of it as possible!
