Thumbs down Election Results: President Barack Hussein Obama II

There will be 4 more years with Barack Hussein Obama II as President of the United States.

With the election finally over, will we now be able to come together as a country and move forward or will there be further division?

No.

<sorry I just broke the rule about one word answers>

Well, apparently I have more words.....

It's human nature to be divided. Our character decides how we express that division and what compromise we are willing to make for greater good.

I guess the end result depends on what you consider the greater good to be.....

Hence, the root of our division.

Looking at the history of our country, we've always had a divide. Revolt against King George or not? Monarch or President? House of Lords or Representatives?

I think it would be a completely unified country that would be abnormal.

What do you say?

No, we're not going to be able to move forward. The battle between the Republicans and the Democrats will be never ending. Being a Republican myself, I disagree with a lot of Obama's decisions.

Seeing the political division between friends and families this morning saddens me deeply.

The comments are truly sad…

“If you voted for [insert either candidate] remove yourself from my friends list.”

“If you voted for [insert either candidate] you are an idiot.”

C’mon folks! Are you serious?

The election is over.

Isn’t it time for us to put our differences aside and move forward?

I believe the country can both move forward and still have divisions ...


CNN last nite showed the map of all the counties in the US as Red or Blue and seeing the blue ones was not so easy.

there were lessons to be learned by both sides at the conclusion of the 2012 campaign.

I suspect the division will continue cause they got to pay for all that stuff they want for free and I don't think the house is going to pass any meaningful tax increases. At least they aren't for the next 2 years.

I'm pretty sure that there have been close elections before in every democratic country and surprisingly everyone just gets on with the constant battle that life throws at you.

I don't mind division. In fact, I think the fringes of our political parties pull us to center.

What I don't like is when some people think that a difference of opinion in policy means that you can insult someone's intelligence, call them an idiot, pull a card of some sort or whatever.

I'd like it if folks could stick to the issues. The name calling is immature.

It would be nice to think we could move forward. I have several friends who think we are at a tipping point in our history. I think they are despondent and ready to throw in the towel. They are probably what you'd consider part of the 1% and they are just worn out.

I guess we'll see.

I guess I will have to get used to seeing my benefits continue to shrink for another four years....

After all I only worked for 50 years.....
At least I didn't get shot or blown up...yet....


(And the politicians will already be laying a foundation for the next election....without concern for the "people".)

Judging by the popular vote, the country is divided. Will this change in 4 more years? Depends on Barack at this point. This term will be about his legacy. So he MIGHT do what other presidents have done, and work with the other side more often.

Or he may attempt to force his agenda down everyone's throats since he won't be running again. Only time will tell.
