I didn't know that popular vote decided the election? My bad.

You COMPLETELY didn't answer the question Doc asked you. You TOTALLY danced around it, which is something you ALWAYS do when cornered with facts.

Reading is fundamental Junk. Comprehension comes from it.
Give it a try.

It's probably become selective. I understand that's normal with age.

Looks to me like the bulk of the counties in this country are red according to this week's voting map. I would say that being red or blue has nothing to do with those supposed stats and more to do with one's own socio-economic situation, wouldn't you agree?

So your defense would be that the states mentioned in the list are TOO republican, and that's why the information isn't accurate?

So, like I said, cherry-picked. non-sequitur.

Regardless of who's in office, I do better and better each year, and not solely because of earnings, but because of smarter investing, spending, savings and planning. I feel sorry for folks who are relying on politicians to "better" their lives. To feel so much hatred toward a man because he won an election is INSANE! Afterall, it's not like there's a Republican or Conservative up there who gives a DAMN about you or your family. Why you guys continue to worship these psychopaths is beyond all rational reasoning. If you by some chance become a CEO of a big company and you have millions of dollars at your disposal, only then can you expect a politician to show you any interest.
Got news for ya...not one democrat does either...
Here's a list I put together...
“Well, listen, I think this has been the most misreported story of my two years’ tenure. We don’t have a tea party caucus to speak of in the House.”
- Speaker John Boehner, ABC news, November 8, 2012

This is not about Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney is a good man, a good father, and a good American.

This is about the Beltway GOP establishment that picks losing candidates, runs losing campaigns – and now denies that you exist.

Mitt Romney is gone. Our problem is still here. Because the beltway GOP establishment is still here – and still doesn’t get it.

This is the same GOP establishment that:
• ŸAllowed spending to go UP during the 2 years of power and control we gave them in Congress
• Raised the debt ceiling after heavy opposition from the American people
• Refused to utter the words “tea party” once during the entire GOP convention
• Opened the door to tax hikes – this week – with President Obama
• Said – this week – “Mr. President, this is your moment. We’re ready to be led”
• Said – this week – “Obamacare is the law of the land”
• This week – denied we exist

Tea Party...

NO longer a part of the incredible GOP shrinking tent...

Just my opinion...I believe we will see capitulation from the President on the tax hikes. There will be some "closed door" negotiations between him and Boehner...give and take.

BTW...the picture is of Boehner and my oldest son Marc taken last year when Boehner was a guest on the ship he commanded, the USCGC Alligator.

I'd bet dollars to donuts that most places blue are in financial distress. What big city is not in excessive debt, or don't even bother to include unfunded pensions in the numbers?
