    GameOgre is not political in any way, but was anybody surprised by Obama being reelected?

    I lol'd at Florida the entire time it was oscillating. Pretty sure it's going to swing to Obama for good though.

    In all seriousness, I'm not terribly surprised. I figured it was going to be a reasonably close popular election, and Obama ended up scoring big on battleground states. :)

    I didn't get surprised at all. I always thought that people would vote Obama as a apresident and not Romney

    I wasn't surprised at the presidential at all. There were occasional other votes for issues and things that I wasn't happy with though.

    They voted no. Strongly.

    There were good results too, it's just that's the one I already had a picture for.

    well, the predictions were in favor of obama, but then again you can't really trust the predictions. It is not that surprising that Obama won, but the margins in the swing states are surprising.

    Kinda surprised at how much Obama won by but was thinking he would win. I think we have a lot of people who don't like Obama because of the last 4 years but Romney wasn't able to convince them to vote for him, it appeared to me as much as they didn't like Obama they felt Romney wasn't any better and with Obama they at least know what they are getting.

    @king: yeah we did. Romney sucks. Although he did fight for lower texes on rich people. I make a little over 9million a year. But I still dont thank its right to make middle class pay more.

    And on that note, given Politics track record of getting heated on the internet I'd like to remind anyone thinking of replying to this comment to please keep it civil. :)

    Wasn't directed at you :) Strong opinions and statements aren't the issue, it's usually the replies they attract that are. Was meant as a forewarning to those that might be offended or object not to make it personal.
