5. Technically it would be rounded up to 48

So I am hoping he drops to 47.49 so we can round down.

32. Arizona had around 525,000 Friday to count, my guess AZ is probably around 300,000 by now


I haven't heard how many they have left to count. Only heard that they were going to keep counting throughout the weekend.

Yeah, and CNN called a 48-40 ratio a neck-n-neck race. Glad you're here! We need you! Help us solidify and protect our gains - and BUILD upon them! After all, 2014 awaits. And beyond that!

19. I certainly hope Arizona will keep counting.

There has to be a legal way to make that happen. All votes should be counted ALL the time. Dammit.

21. A Petition

Apparently there are states who now want to secede due to the election results. While are first inclination may be "See ya". It would tear our country apart. Plus it would let immaturity win. While I don't believe they can be successful because their petitions are just to have the president consider their secession, I created a petition to counteract their goal. I hope to show that more Americans from any political affiliation would rather work together, then break apart.

30. I jokingly predicted Flip-Flopper getting 47%

 

A few days after the 47% tape from Flip-Flopper surfaced, I wrote a tongue-in-cheek post about how ironic it would be if Etch-A-Sketch got that percentage in the final vote count.

Here's to my foresight!

I couldn't believe my ears. He asked his guest, "It was a very close race. Does he really have a mandate?"

Does he really have a MANDATE???????? You COULD say that!!

39. GOPers on the TV this week have been saying that Pres Obama doesn't have a mandate 'this time'


Obama now has more votes than Bush did in 2004 when Bush went around saying he had a mandate.

That's why everyone was wanting to see Obama, in this year's election, beat the 2004 Bush numbers
