This is typical democrats and they go out of the way to be nice with their opposition where as Republicans consider this as a war and a blood sport and they go to any length including cheating and lying to win. Look at Romney he is still campaigning and if possible have his motorcade disrupt some voting in PA & OH the last day.

Look at Obama. He is in Chicago and going out of the way to congratulate the liar. President Obama, I am pissed. You want to congratulate Romney for what? spirited campaign of all the things?

Obama congratulates Romney for 'spirited campaign'

I am sorry, your supporters don't feel that way and they are in the trenches turning out the vote for you. It's not about you as it about people supporting you. This niceties won't help motivate your supporters in the trenches as they might feel that you are already giving up.

I still remember John Kerry commenting in the last week of the 2004 election that 'if he loses he wants to leave with a little respect' before even the polls started and at the same time Bush was swiftboating etc... when asked the same question, his answer was 'I will will win'. I just don't understand these intellectual minded democrats.

Please respectfully, Don't have to be nice to the opposition at least for few more hours until the voting is completed and then you can be nice & generous and gracious..

I voted for you and donated for you but I am still seething & angry that you did not hit hard on republican brand and tea party extremism and didn't try hard to minimize the loss of white voters. You would have helped us to win back the congress with this strategy. I don't understand why your campaign didn't do that.

I am not a troll and what ever you want to call me after reading this post. Nothing makes me more happy to see a democrats win the white house & congress. I get frustrated when we (democrats) don't see this as a game and win this damn thing first.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
