    Perhaps you just jumped into this conversation without knowing what we were talking about...and that's why you bring up the irrelevant Electoral College vote. Whatever.

    In any event, I think your popular vote number is inflated. Wiki, which uses the numbers that were certified by Congress on Jan. 4, puts the difference at 4,975,445 with a percentage difference of 3.85%. And yes...I would call that scraping by instead of shrubnose's contention that "most Americans" elected Obama.

    Final 2012 Presidential Election Electoral and Popular Vote

    Now, if a six million vote victory is 'scraping out' a popular vote win to you, what would you call the results of the popular vote between Al Gore and George Bush in 2000?
    I would certain not be saying that Bush was elected by "most Americans" as shrubnose contends about Obama.

    I might add that you have inflated the numbers as did Texmex...though not by near as much as he did. Perhaps you should use a calculator instead of rose-colored guesstimates.

    I'll stick to the relevant facts.
    Laughing, oh you tap dance with the best of 'em!

    First this wasn't a conversation directed at you, YOU jumped into the middle of an ongoing discussion as if it only started when you joined...

    Now you deflect to avoid your whine being thrown back in your face- the sad whine about time to move on after BushII everytime his stupidity is brought into a discussion. YOU want to ignore BushII after 4 years as if there was no lesson to be learned, but how many times does the radical right throw appeasement and Hitler this n that at damn near every turn?

    No Sir, my referencing the radical right's constant dredging up Hitler is in DIRECT reference to the ideological hypocracy of the Radical Right on what is worth remembering. for all you want to forget 4 years ago will you allow us to forget Hitler/appeasement/ the slippery slope of firearm confiscation????

    After a few discussions with you I'd say you stick to the facts that fit your mindset, and the rest is irrelevant....

    LOL!!! Talk about tap dancing...

    Your first post quoted nobody. You were having a conversation with the thread...of which I've been a part. I simply addressed your post as is my right.

    I'll tell you what...you go ahead with your hyper-partisan defense of that disgusting Obama by trying to dredge up any irrelevant information and innuendo if you want. It is YOUR right, after all.

    Explain that.
    Less than half is not most. Most, by definition, would have to be a sum greater than half of those voting.

    I feel threatened by this posting. If you continue to threaten me in this manner, I will be forced to report you to Woodward. Then see just how much trouble you will find yourself in, mister!

    At least I didn't accuse Obama of 'scraping' out a victory as you did.

    As far as Gore v. Bush, I would say Gore was elected by most Americans who bothered to vote - and certainly received more votes than Bush. Oh yeah, I'm sure you were complaining bitterly about the unfairness of all of that at the time.

    Your claim is that Obama did not receive more than half of the votes cast for President? By what stretch of bizarre right wing mathematics do you arrive at that conclusion?

    shrug...I call less than 4% margin...scraping by...but you can call it whatever you want. The fact is, though, Obama knows he has to use every deceitful trick he can come up with...including threatening a respected journalist to get the people to go along with his bull****. He knows he can't say most Americans agree with him.
