    So to cap off the news day thus far:

    - Perry concedes, endorses Newt

    - Newt's ex goes nuclear with tabloidesque allegations

    - Mitt keeps millions in off shore bank accounts

    - Unemployment claims are falling

    David Axelrod must be giggling uncontrollably.

    Romney loses by 5%+.

    I said it long ago.

    I say it still today.

    Some folks need to get used to the idea of a 2nd Obama Term, and perhaps even a 2nd Term w/ (again) full control of both houses by (D).

    You don't have to like it of course, but it is a VERY real possabillity.

    Agree. Maybe after four more years of race and class warfare more/enough people will wake up. It will very likely be too late though, this country is at it's tipping point, imo.

    Holder irate and suing about illegal immigration laws in Ari, SC but crickets on Philly voter intimidation case and any other civil rights case that isn't The Man keeping minority group X down. I mean it's common knowledge, unwritten DOJ policy at the moment.

    And I really have to give you examples of Obama's "Us vs Them" propagandizing?

    The Bush administration would have fought the state immigration laws too. I imagine so would a President Romney. They all believe solving any immigration problems that the US may have is a national issue not an issue taken on state by state.

    The Obama administration has hired thousands of border patrol officers and built miles of fences.

    President Obama won Pennsylvania by 600,000+ votes. I imagine he really, really crushed McCain in Philly

    Given that cities demographics, that shouldn't be a suprise.

    the city canceled out the Pennsytucky parts of the state. Where Obama won the state was the suburbs like Bucks and Montgomery county. (and it's probably going to happen again)

    that's how bad W screwed his party. it should be noted those areas voted solidly GOP in 2010 and led to the election of the GOP governor Corbitt and the Senator Toomey

    Yup, both parties are equally turdly on this. And Obama won PA by a wide margin, making it ok to disenfranchise (a word the left loves to throw around) even a handful of voters?

    I mean, I get it. Obama, Holder et al are trying to undo 400 years of slanted playing field in 4 (more likely 8) years. Those of us who are white and NOT wealthy aren't very excited about this, seeing as how we had nothing to do with past discrimination of minorities. I grew up on food stamps, welfare, single mother, bad schools until high school...poor is poor, black, white whatever.
