High turnout, budget woes fuel Election Day snarls

(CNN) - Five hours after the polls closed in Miami, there were still people standing in line to cast ballots.

They were still there when former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney conceded early Wednesday morning in Boston his race to unseat President Barack Obama. Some of them were still there when Obama gave his victory speech nearly an hour later in Chicago, thanking those who "waited in line for a very long time" to vote.

    So you think four more years of failed policies, over spending' Senate wouldn't even look at the budget that Congress sent them for the last three years, Americans getting killed because our President would not send any help when asked a month before, the liberal press only saying things that would help Obama, will only enforce laws that he wants that would help him get re-elected, and full of lies god bless this country the stupid people who voted fr Obama didn't help a bit.

    And you can thank the wonderful rethuglican party for that. Their attempts at stealing the election were futile, but they sure gave it their all. Regardless, even if Willard had won Florida, he was still so far behind, he couldn't win. So please stop crying for that lying cheat. His own party didn't want him, they just didn't want the black guy.

    Not to mention the GOP's onging enthusiasm for voter fraud by intentionally messing with citizen's rights, and the voting process. Any news from Florida- yet?
