This is excellent analysis. Mr. Obama is an incredibly talented politician. He beat the Clinton political machine to win the democratic nomination and the presidency twice.
Wayne's comments on the media bias for Obama are accurate and easy to miss if you don't live in the US.

The conservatives have a problem getting their story out. With the exception of a few narrow media outlets that believers listen to, there is nothing to match liberal media bias. This includes music, movies, news and more. "In the liberal universe, bad guys are greedy corporate types, Christian extremists, Israel, the U.S. military, millionaires, and billionaires. The good guys are journalists, trial lawyers, union leaders, Palestinians, and government agencies..."
Obama's policies hurt those he claims to defend. Income is down for the lower and middle earners. Unemployement is higher among minorities.

Obama will lead the US down the fiscal cliff. At this time of crisis, he offers a proposal to raise taxes and increase wasteful government spending. Within two days of the election, conservatives capitulated with an offer to raise tax revenue through limits on deductions for the wealthy. Meanwhile, the media narrative is that conservatives are unreasonable and they want to protect the rich. Obama talks about how the rich must pay their fair share yet the top 2 percent pay nearly half of all income taxes in the US, and the bottom 46% don't pay any income taxes. Is it fairer if they pay 75 percent of all taxes? I am not in the top tiers, but I pay my fair share of taxes. The media narrative should focus on the fact that increases in taxes on the rich won't pay for bloated wasteful government spending that Obama promotes.


'If the Republicans continue their wars against Latinos and an amnesty to them, and the war against women and abortion, and threatening Medicare'????

Please stick to technology reporting. It's a good place for flaming liberals and socialists that live in an ivory tower.

It's unfair to Romney's campaign to talk about how many critical voters he could have gained with a different VP choice without also considering how many he would have lost in not having Paul Ryan. In fact, I believe that Romney's campaign did very well, especially given the incompetence of its leader/candidate. They maximized the number of electoral votes they could receive given the positions and personality of their candidate.
