Picture the American economy as a car. It was stalled on the side of the highway when Obama took office. Obama has since taken the wheels off and put them in the trunk, put solar cells on the top of the car and poured soybeans in the gas tank. Right before the election, Obama painted racing stripes on the car and the media found that to be fantastic. Romney told people what was going on, and told them that he would put the tires back on, remove the soybeans and put in gas, and get the car back on the road, but voters were apparently more concerned that Romney might throw away the birth control pills in the back seat.

So, here we sit on the side of the road for another four years, with some people thinking that stripping the car down will really punish those rich [email protected]

What it really appears was the situation, and this is based on the voter turnout -- note the turnout is what killed Romney

Those birth control pills in the backseat? They really were the key, too many folks knew they were going to get screwed either way and figured at least they wouldn't get pregnant.

Now I do not agree, I though Romney would have been a decent President. But the problem is no one saw enough difference to bother voting for Romney, so they stayed home.

They will be punished for that decision. Unfortunately, they will convince themselves they were not wrong and that there was no difference.

They will howl at the moon for someone who could not get elected and put Hillary in to cement Obama's 'progress' then they will convince themselves again that the other guy would be no better.

Sorry, but liberalism is not the only disease out there IMO
