Also, the media were pretty spectacularly off in all their predictions, either through faulty polling or cherry-picking of results to make the race look more interesting. At any rate, they ought to be fairly embarassed. They’re just as out of touch with the electorate as the Republicans are.
56% of white women voted for Romney, 42% for Obama.
who wants to take a bet on whether this’ll get attention from white f*eminists? oh, no one? hm. (by the way - white women have skewed republican for a while, although this was the biggest margin in that direction in the last three elections.)
yeah this goes well away from the narrative we’ve got going that white women support Obama. That’s only if you compare us to white men; on the whole, not so much.
How? Did…did you SEE your campaign? Were you there? And this is really rich coming from a woman who has literally (I know what the word means and i’m using it correctly) cried audibly in public because she could not find the precise cheese she wanted for dinner after a long, stressful day? But why are you crying about this? I did not cry in 2000 or 2004. I understand being shocked that the black guy won once but come on.
I’m really enjoying white tears week
I’m here for white tears, yo.
he didn’t even write a concession speech ahead of time.
I agree, I thought Romney’s concession speech was shitty, ungracious, hollow, fatuous, unjustifiably pompous, utterly lacking in either substance or sincerity or preparation — in other words, reflective of his overall candidacy. This fucker didn’t write a concession speech in advance? Well that nicely captures one of the many reasons why this guy is absolutely unqualified for the job. This is a guy who draws up a risky battle plan without a fallback plan, totally unbefitting a competent strategist. He’s spent so much of his life getting away with half-assing it that he doesn’t even realize that others fastidiously double-check their Plans B and C and D and E before entering battle. Once the shots started flying, he got his ass handed to him. John McCain’s concession speech four years ago was gracious. Romney’s was a petulant foot-stomp. Hopefully the last one we’ll see from his ignoble figure.
that’s the error bred in those like willard who have not clawed face to face with struggle and pain and fighting for what you are and have. they aren’t ready, they haven’t been made ready, they never see it coming.
A change isn’t going to come. A change is already here.
