Sorry for the primary screwees - the youngs.

It is a bit offensive you expressing such sympathy, Torie - they're being screwed by your class, not Obama, Torie.

I for one would feel very happy, as I don't expect he will win.

Well you think everyone is being screwed by my class (and no doubt screwing each other in the process, so basically screwing everyone), so that kind of shuts down much further discussion. It like discussing religion.  I am trying to get a bit more granular here. I will leave the grand unified theorists such as yourself to do the really heavy lifting. I am more of a micro kind of guy.

More relieved than anything else since Mitt Romney won't be occupying the White House...
Relieved, hopeful for some real liberal reforms

A combination of these two, but more the former.

Depends on what happens in Congress. If Obama takes the House with him I would actually feel hopeful especially if the Democrats buy some Bawls at their local store and not repeat 2009-10. If he doesn't take Congress with him though I would feel some relief but will also feel option 2.

Bernie would probably win Vermont if Obama were deemed to have more than 272 evs in the vag.

Eh, cowardice and filibusters would still get in the way of things. The Republicans will be more united than ever with filibusters with Snowe gone.

Disappointed, probably not watch the news for a week.  Take out frusteration by working out, go for a jog, or something.

I have a feeling that in the Republican leaning states, the sales of anti-depressants will go up if he wins.

Takes time to visit the doc to get a prescription.  Sales of alcohol will likely go up.

Indeed, watch the prescription drug numbers around December.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Pay special attention to places like California, Illinois, and New York. Those people will be the most depressed come December.

Combination of 2 and 4, as would be my reaction to a Romney victory.

I'm genuinely not. There's no particular reason why those states should be the most depressed following Obama's reelection specifically even if you are using 'depressed' as an awful pun.

Tsk, tsk, Nathan. You need to brush up on your Fox "News" hack-speak. He's obviously assuming a Mittens win. You see, California, New York, and Illinois are all Democratic words, and reality is reversed in right-wing grammar. It's in the textbook, page 349. There's a little box labeled "Red States/Blue States and How To Avoid Them".

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

NOTA, voted option 2.

I'd feel more like "oh boy, here we go. This ought to be an unpleasant adventure." but it depends on if Republicans keep the House and win the Senate.

In any other thread I would have seen that he's assuming a Mittens win, but considering the eventuality explicitly being addressed in the title of this thread it threw me for a loop. I forgot about the reversal of reality and teleological suspension of the merely logical.

Depressed and angry.

I hope if that does happen to hide out doing some busywork-type of homework instead of sleeping. If that happens I will be way too angry to sleep that night anyway and should at least try to get something productive done in the process.
