Although I don't really have a feeling one way or another about the casino referendum, it feels great having voted in Maryland for Question 4 and Question 6.

So proud.

The thing people don't understand is the President has minimal influence over the economy. They get all the blame when things go poorly and all the praise when things go well. Then again the fiscal cliff is a very real threat that the President has a hand in however most of the time the markets will do what they want.

Either way the social side of me is very happy. Obamas reelection insures appointment of more liberal justices to the supreme court and planned parenthood will continue to stand, and the chances of going to war are greatly reduced with a modern progressive.

The fiscal conservative in me though is worried. More EPA, more confusing regulations, higher taxes on my bosses, and plans to increase spending before reducing the deficit.

I'm hoping Obamacare works, definitely want it to work, but I still think it's overkill.

Same as when you lose a football game.
The winners cheer and the losers dont say much.

The USA has changed a lot. Its not the same country I grew up in.
There are now more poeple riding in the wagon and less pulling it.
I feel kind of embarrased that its come to this.

And to answer Firstdown's question re: how I feel about what Reid said, I'm against it. But the key difference is that Reid is giving pre-election rhetoric, whereas the GOP followed through on their obstructionist agenda. If Romney wins, and the Dems followed suit and obtusely blocked meaningful, reasonable legislation... I'll be very disappointed.
Ive felt that Obama and the dems created the partisanship by forcing the healthcare bill through. So while republicans have been using obstructionist tactics, that what they were elected to congress to do. Theyre merely representing their constituents. That said, more people obviously voted feeling the way you do, than feeling they way I do. I was really hoping for an Obama loss coupled with a Tim Kaine win, as that would have singled a comprise mentality to me. Instead things feel decidedly split.

Obama represents different things to different people. Regardless of reality, many (or most) view Obama as the face of an ideology thats championed by some and anguished by others. Hes hated as much as hes loved, which unfortunately leaves little room for compromise. He is going to be in a major uphill battle to change those perceptions and get government to work together.

In large part thats why i didnt want Obama to win. Congress didnt lose control, and no one thought they would, so to me Obama winning means 4 more years similar to the last 2. And unless we see some big turnarounds in the national debt, unemployment, and the economy i suspect we could see partisanship after the 2014 elections that make the last 2 years look like a honeymoon between two 18 year olds that just eloped. He has his work cut out for him, hopefully the 4 years of experience has will serve him well this go around.
