1. I have read on other sites, that there is a huge difference...

....between "voters from urban areas" and "urban voters".

7. No argument here. Just pointing out that this is the defense they are floating.

As if there there is some enormous linguistic difference between the phrases.

15. Right. And May I offer a translation please: Ryan wasn't expecting . . .

. . . all those black people to be ABLE to vote. Rove and Husted were supposed to take care of that.

(Woohoo! My 600th post.)

22. euphamism. "Urban Audience", "urban this and that". "Inner city" also.

4. Less people voted for Romney than did McCain.

... clearly the fault of those darned "urbans!"

6. Ummm... yeah.

Never mind your racist dog whistles, Paul. You're right, even though what you mean is a kind of delusional denial.

"Urban" = "city" = population center = the majority of the overall population = The People.

YOU LOST and you lost BIG -- on the issues, on your lies, and on your hatreds, and on your delusions.

Deal with it, asshole.

9. I saw that coming a mile away.

I mean, OF COURSE these idiots are going to insinuate that black people "stole" the election, in some ridiculous way. They're pathetic racist crybabies. How dare they not get handed what they think they just deserve.

13. Oh those pesky Negroes :rolls my eyes:

 

Ugh. As a Blatino man I am truly disgusted with the blatant racism that oozes from that side. I read an article last week that talked about it being "the end of the world as straight white men know it". Well I know lots of straight white men and white people in general who voted for Obama so we can't lump them all in that category. However, I said many years ago that for those white men who want to keep the structure of society intact and with them in charge was going to be difficult to comprehend when they begin to lose their grasp on that structure.

All those voter supression efforts and what did they get? Life is so unfair time.

17. Oh noes! The real America did not win the election!

How dare the black folk come out and actually....vote.

Also, Ryan and Mittens lost the majority of the white vote in VT, IA, CT, and MA.

They lost because they lost. Period.

18. WA. and OR. admittedly Blue States...

whites overall voted over 52-53% for Obama. There are several other states that did the same.

Paul Ryan is a dinosaur. His own town, Janesville, WI. didn't vote for him. So, that means......they
voted for Obama and they are not "urban."

Yes, everyone has the right to vote, and there is no reason "urban" voters should stay home just to help you out.
