Are you?

It's so yummy I can't stop, like a tub of Ben and Jerrys.

1. Me too! I can't quite bring myself to remove my Dogs Against Romney 2012 car magnet

The 0 in 2012 is a paw-shaped Obama logo. It will continue being 2012 for another 5.5 weeks right?

7. Maybe you'll be able to get a 2014 stickers from "Watchdogs" to replace it

...by the end of the year.

Have you seen Dogs Against Romney's new FB group? https://facebook.com/WatchdogCause?id=151710264973902&_rdr

Half-assed, a metaphor for the Romney campaign itself.

14. amazingly i only saw 2 Romney bumper stickers this year..

I'm betting over 50 or 60 Obama stickers.... of course there were a smattering of the nobama, and anti stuff, but thats been around since 2010..

i left my 08 sticker and put a new one alongside it..

5. So you are the one that is causing those Republicans

to go loony. There was one at the gym this morning that was chewing the ear off of a guy for voting for Obama, he even followed the guy to the urinals babbling about Obama being a socialist, Muslim and the like. I couldn't believe that guy kept his temper. Then later I stop at a Starbucks and there is this guy I see there all the time, he drives a BMW 3, I asked him if he saw the new Cadillac ATS. That set him off, "I will never buy a GM car because they took my money and bailed them out." I am in Ohio, I said they say there are 850,000 jobs dependent on the auto industry in this state and they wouldn't have had jobs. He don't give a damn they can maqke the cars in Japan or Germany. He went on and on about Obama being a socialist, Muslim, whatever. Something seemed to have freaked them out today.

6. Wow! They don't care about American jobs all of a sudden?

Must be a new meme Faux is programming into their brains: "Obama saved American jobs, which must mean outsourcing is the best cure for our economy!!1!", or the suchlike.

The mind literally boggles at their stupid gullibility.

Which analyst Dave Wasserman thinks is a near-certainty, since most outstanding votes are in New York.

20. Absolutely! Don't forget the disnformation, too!

Rmoney's legacy shall forever be that he did buy the Republicon nomination and somehow thought he could buy and lie himself and his family into the White House.

Let's not forget this humiliation of himself and his family was/is GLOBAL! Mwahahahahaaa!

13. I am so happpy!

I don't go to bed praying to the Goddess that Obama will be elected again.

I don't get up each morning praying that Obama will be elected.

I do go to bed each night saying "Thank Goddess that Obama was elected."

Each morning is so great!

31. I gloated in the Sound Off section of my local newspaper. They asked "What will you

be doing for Thanksgiving?"

I called in with: I am thankful that we kept Obama in the White HOuse and sent Chris Murphy to the Senate."

I wanted to say something snarky about Linda McMahon but there is limited space in the column. Hope they print it in tomorrow's paper!

18. I want to make yard signs out of the infamous Nelson Muntz "HaHa!" gif and place them...

... next to Romney yard signs left up.

I drove through Arizona, Oklahoma and Missouri immediately after the election and wished I had a stack.

I tortured my poor boyfriend with probably 20 hours of FOX on the satellite radio. He just couldn't understand my glee listening to their crying... oh yeah and BENGHAZI!!!!!!

you have finished gloating, you might want to watch this and turn your attention to it:

24. What's up, can't you gloat and chew gum at the same time?

I'm perfectly capable of simultaneously gloating over the painful public defeat of relentless nasty, lying, greedy, racist bullies and having enormous empathy for those who deserve it.

It's good you didn't "mean to", as the sky is perfectly clear here.

Thanks for sharing that topic of concern.

25. I'm feeling very dour and glum tonight, knowing that 1 in 5 American children

 

are currently living in poverty.

Makes it difficult for me to gloat.

Hope I'm not too much of a Debbie Downer for you.

27. I understand

Bringing up a 15 month old girl in poverty, I know all about feeling glum and despondent. Fortunately, we do have a light at the end of the tunnel - even if it is very faint and a long way away - which makes it easier to deal with.

Being on here among like minded people and sometimes having a bit of fun makes it easier, too.

wondering who the new lover is.

26. Oh my gods, does it feel good

Have you noticed that our President even knows there's more to Asia than China? And that he can multi-task by sending his Sec of State out to Israel at the same time he's in Burma, to see if she can help bring peace?

I could go on, and on. Think of the alternatives (shudder).
In Obama/Biden, we have the best of the best. I'll always have their backs.

32. Gloating is not my style

 

Gloating just is not my style. I prefer the condescending pity route myself lol. As in: “awww, so sorry for your loss, I know you tried really, really hard to win…and just think, President Obama will probably select at least two Supreme Court Justices, so the effect of this election will be felt for decades. “

Follow up with a pity hug or pat on the back.
