Never before did I feel like there was such a big difference between two candidates! I feel that in Europe, the differences tend to be quite marginal. But this time they felt huge to me.

Big congratulations to Barack also from my part, I hope he follows the CN forum closely and thus will read this!!

No. It's a job you do.

It is a part of the job but nonetheless, it would have been very tough to do after such a long campaign.

Oh well, Australia has an election to look forward to next year, likely in early 2013. At least we have a proper, straight forward voting system.

EDIT: btw, can any of you provide a website demonstrating GOP's crazy positions on Homosexuality, Abortion and other crazy positions? just trying to prove a point to a friend. Thanks.

Wasn't there some sort of coup d'état recently in Australia?

No??? Can you explain more what you mean by coup d'etat? I know what it literally means but not in this context.

He's probably referring to the literal meaning; I'm guessing the leadership challenge(s) within the Labor party.

So I guess there will be riots all over the red states since President Obama was reelected?

Someone posted some twitter twitts before on this thread where the President's supporters were going to riot if that Mittonman was elected. So I figure the Whiskey Tangos will be burning the trailer parks down by now.
Of course not to be out done,,,,the Trump called for a revolution.

Anyhow it is great to see that the majority N.Jobs on here did not have your heads explode due to shaking each others hands to much.

Today I will go out and buy as much ammunition as I can get. Now that President Obama has 4 more years he will come after all my weapons and ammo. He has an agenda against the guns and religious folk,,, so I better take care of this.

Do any of you liberal wingnutz know when President Obama plans to rewrite the constitution?
