No. Not at all. In fact, it is a great day! The partisan slurs and
fearmongering have been shown to be irrelevant. The accusations that Obama is
"foreign" and "not really American" and the great evil who will
destroy American have been finally and irreducably shown to be false. Yes, the
Tea Party crazies lost THEIR America because it never was their's to begin
with. The people won and they don't like it.Those who
predicted that Obama would ruin America back in 2008 were as wrong then as they
are now. America is growing and prospering. Obama's policies have been
successful including Obamacare (John Boehner acknowledges that it is the law of
the land), the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the Lily Ledbetter Act
and the Stimulus Spending bill that the Right called a "failure".The only thing that can slow America's progress is the wingnut
fringe movement conservatives in the House and their reactionary supporters.
Like Rush Limbaugh, they will continue to work to make Obama fail even if the
result is to make America fail. Their attitude is "if they can't have
what they want, then nobody should have anything!"
Many Utahns, especially me, think the election of President Barack Obama was one
of the most important days in our Nation's history! I'm
not at all "sad" except when I see the sore-losing attitudes held by a
lot of Utahns. It is a "sad" commentary on our state when so many
voters self-righteously ignore the outcome of the election and feel they are
above the will of the American people. Sen. Mike Lee says Utahns have "an
extra gene of patriotism"....I'm still waiting to see that.
some townhall columnists are pessimistic, However I think conservatism will win
It was a long hard slog to end up right back where we started. But it was good
for the nations' psyche. We've matured a bit, and eveolved as a nation
in the last four years. After all the yelling and mudslinging, the electorate
remained calm and wanted nothing of reactionary politics.
I have an idea, how about supporting the President?
There's a lot of snark flying around on these boards, but I'm glad
that Gregory wrote this letter. I was unhappy when Bush won two terms, but I
didn't spew rage or start to hate America. It's nice to see that some
of Romney's voters are capable of doing the same thing.

pessimistic, However I think conservatism will win again.-----------------------I hope it does, provided it is TRUE
conservatism and not the far right wing fringe-dweller counterfeit that's
passing for, and erroneously claiming to be, conservatism these days.
So calling the choose of the majority of americans a "sad day" is being
"more kind?" I don think you are off to a very good start.
There is finally HOPE in America again.Let's all pitch in and
make the most of it.
As you continuously spike the football and insult your opponents, you only prove
yourselves to be the poorest of sports. You will never convince the
second place team that they are better off because your team won.
