    There were sooooo many r.ape quotes from republicans. Atkins was just the tip of the iceberg.

    There was Mourdock who said the pregnancy from r.ape was 'God's Will', Rivard who said 'some girls r.ape easy', King who claimed that women and girls don't get pregnant from r.ape or incest, Smith who suggested that r.ape was like having a child 'out of wedlock' (for the father of the child)...

    There are undoubtedly more...

    ETA: forgot an important one, Walsh who said that pregnancies are 'never life threatening' therefore there is no reason for abortion.

    Sickening isn't it!

    I'm relieved that Obama was re elected and I think America got it right.

    I just hope that the same happens here the next time we go to the polls. It scares me to think that Tony Maggot would be in power.

    I am not pleased that Obama won. The reasons I am not pleased are his drone strikes on Pakistan, his support for the practice of torture, his kill lists which authorise people to be executed sans trial, and his sycophancy towards Israel.

    I would have liked to have seen an Independent or Third Party candidate like Jill Stein win the presidency.

    Relieved!

    Yes, the r.ape quotes were breathtaking.

    "When life begins with that horrible situation of r.ape, that is something that God intended to happen" - Republican Senator Richard Mourdock

    "The right approach is to accept this horrible created, in the sense of rape, but nevertheless...a gift of human life, and accept what God is giving you." Republican Senator Risk Santorum 2012

    "Richard and I, along with millions of Americans...belief that life is a gift from God." Republican Senator John Cornyn supporting Richard Mourdock's statement about rape-induced abortions

    So if God intended it to happen or pregnancy is a gift from God, then the rapist must have been doing God's work??

    More delightful quotes here.

Just think how much more expensive iVf and assisted fertility would be without Medicare and not being allowed to have pre-existing conditions before taking out insurance!
    Regan was 1982-1988 I don't think he would have tried to introduced nationalized health care through, he was always so very pro-capitalism. (Of course I might be wrong!)

    I also take issue with Romney's religious beliefs but that's a whole new thread...

    Relieved, but not really surprised.

    Obama is such a far more evolved human than Romney in every sense.

    I don't know if I expected it... I was nervous that it could have gone the other way. Mitt Romney had a fair bit of support...

    I'm just glad Obama won. I saw this election as a possible look into AUSTRALIA'S future... would the conservative bigots win out, or not? I'm hoping that Australia follows America's lead and chooses the not-as-conservative party in our next election. I'd be scared as an American under Romney, and I'll be scared as an Australian under Abbott.
