4. I liked the accounts of the

 

posh victory party the Romney campaign at the Boston Convention Center. One pointed out that the guest list showed that Romney was quickly disposing of his egalitarian facade so he'd be able to hob nob with his real people. They bought $25,000 of fireworks that weren't used.

I don't think I've ever enjoyed the defeat of these people so much as I do now. I read somewhere that Obama might offer Romney the Sec of Commerce position, which would be a really bad idea. If there's one thing he doesn't need it's a mole who hates his guts in his administration. I wish Kerns Goodwin had never written that bull shit book.

These are the nutbags who think they have already lost their freedoms under this President, even though isn't one among them who can name a single freedom they've lost. They live in a parallel universe where a compulsive liar and bully can be "too good". If they can ever manage to extract their heads from their asses and see the light of day, they're going to be in for one massive shock.

involving mixed groups of young males and females who are relative strangers to one another.

I also heard stuff like that amongst our Occupy from certain suburban bourgeoisie Christian types who were way more tolerant of the Libertarians and Anarchists amongst us than they were toward young college students who wanted to work with, but not FOR, labor, the SEIU in particular.

In honor and integrity, Obama has won his re-election. I along with my family were jumping up and down yelling until our voices gave out. However, I DO know this. As much as my heart has completely gone out in support for our president, Romney's supporters also have done the same for theirs. To lose what you strongly believe in is a very devastated feelings! I guess what I want to share with you is this: "Like Obama has won his re-election with honor, integrity, compassion and understanding, we should also do the same." The election is over. Let's focus on the directions to help our country piecing back the broken pieces so we can better the lives for everyone in our country. By no means, this is the reflection of my criticism. This is strictly my feelings and humbly like to share with you.

But, from the initial comments of McConnell and Boehner, I don't think they accept the fact that their ideology was rejected on Tuesday.

It seems to me they believe that all were not created equal. They seem to believe that all people do not deserve respect, healthcare, a decent education or a right to vote.

If their feelings are devastated, so be it. Welcome to the real world.

We will focus on trying to better the lives of everyone in this country. We are liberal/progressive Democrats. That's what we do.

But, as I mingle in my community who voted for Romney 75%, I feel nothing but pleasure as I look at their faces.

33. Well said!

Most of their beliefs are based on lies and delusions. And, as you point out, they believe all those lies because they think so little of their fellow citizens. Some of us have been devastated by their previous actions of having installed the Village Idiot into power for two terms. I can't feel sorry for these willfully ignorant jackasses, because I know firsthand what REAL devastation feels like, and it has been never-ending. They aren't going to have to through what I've been enduring for the past five-plus years. And, I really don't give a shit if they're upset if they're upset that their savior on a white horse lost. Fuck them. I will enjoy watching them in their misery, and I won't feel the least bit guilty about it.

36. I applaud the sentiment; if for no other reason than that we are better than they are.

However, I can't find any sympathy in my heart for them; none at all.

I was raised in a Southern military family. I grew up on Army bases all over the country, and overseas. I was steeped in American history and a kind of genial, we-can-do-it patriotism by my mother and father. They taught me that service to one's country is a noble calling. I always put my hand over my heart and recited the Pledge of Allegiance before class every morning. I always took off my cap and sang the National Anthem before the ballgames. My mother is an old-school Kennedy liberal who marched in JFK's inaugural parade, having attended LBJ's alma mater, Southwest Texas State. I served seven years in the U.S Army, three reserve and four active, including duty in the Gulf in 1991. I consider civic responsibility the duty of every citizen, and I have voted in every Presidential election since 1988.

And in 2003, the sort of people who now support Rmoney started calling me 'un-American', 'anti-American', saying I wanted the "terrorists to win", and all manner of awful things, simply because I opposed the illegal, unconscionable, immoral, and yes, un-American invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Me, un-American...

I spent eight years in a kind of fog, unable to believe that my country was now conducting blitzkrieg-style, lebensraum invasions of countries that were no threat to us. It was surreal.

And now these brain-dead, morally bankrupt, asshole right-wingers cry about what they've "lost"...

Sorry. No sympathy. None at all...

59. I'm with you

For the eight years during the Bush administration, I watched as cops beat, falsely arrested, sprayed with pepper spray, doused with tear gas, and violated the rights of thousands of Americans protesting their illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq, and then later during Occupy Wall Street. And during all of it, all I ever heard from these Romney loving assholes was them cheering it all on.

They cheered on the death and destruction in Iraq. They cheered the assault of civil liberties at home, they cheered the torture in Guantanamo and Abu Grahib, and they cheered on an incompetent and un-elected president as he drove our country into economic ruin.

I HAVE ZERO SYMPATHY FOR THESE ASSHOLES, AND I SAVOR THEIR TEARS LIKE A FINE WINE.

No way am I a GOP and anything other than a liberal social democrat with 40 years of consistent Democratic Party voting history and support for Johnson and McCarthy/then RFK briefly before my first legal vote.

The snark and suppression of honest discussion of policy at DU including towards our own makes a less than positive internet site.

I am not picking on your OP or you as a poster or DU really. Just troubled that good cannot do better.

I am at DU nearly every day for years and have zero question whether I am am Democratic, liberal, unquestionably equal rights, and anti-war/violence at DU or in real life.
