Barack Obama Wins Connecticut

Voters in Connecticut on Tuesday cast their ballot for Barack Obama, giving him the state's seven Electoral votes.

Barack Obama won Connecticut’s seven electoral votes on Tuesday, defeating Republican Mitt Romney.

In the 2008 presidential election, the state voted for the Democratic candidate, and since the 1990s has voted for the overall winner of the presidential race 3 out of 5 times.

Romney and Obama did not campaign aggressively in Connecticut. The state has typically been a Democratic stronghold in recent presidential elections.

Ok, Never. Since I'm in "denial", why don't you do this forum a favor and post the name of any "all-white" country club in Connecticut. You don't need to post them all, just the name of one, single, solitary country club that restricts membership to the caucasian race and currently operates in Connecticut. That will settle the argument once and for all. Then you can prove that I'm in "denial." Be careful though, you better get your facts straight first- I'm sure they won't like being exposed as racist. But you seem sure enough to put it in writing, so lets hear it. If you would spend some time outside of your self-created house of mirrors, you would likely realize that I wasn't calling you a racist for "pointing out that racism exists." Quite the contrary. Rather, if you had read what I had written (which you clearly did not) you would have known that I was calling you a racist for recklessly slapping a label on an entire race of people simply because of their race. Have you met every white person in the world? Of course not. So how can you honestly say that ..."every white person is racist to a degree..." What if I said "every black person is (fill in stereotype here)". That would be racist. Racism works both ways. I'm not sure how you can possibly assert that your labeling of an entire group of people based on the sole defining charscteristic of race is anything but the very definition of racism. Wake up.

Now, again- how about posting the name of a single, solitary country club currently operating in the state of Connecticut that restricts membership to the Caucasian race. Heck, I'll even open up the playing field a bit more. I'll accept any country club in Connecticut at restricts membership based on race at all. I'm waiting.

Never- cat got your tongue? Or are you crying because you just realized that you're a racist?

Barack Insane Obama, won the election . It isn't a surprise to me with all the entitle voters out there. Warning to those , remember you live in a free nation , but unfortunately that all may come to a end . Weak leaders bring nations down to their knees . We will no longer be the leader of the world as other nations admire us for ..I just can't believe people would vote just to be politically correct,and to be on the Obama band wagon .No I'm not prejudice it's just the truth ok. This country has become so diluted it makes me sick, and the cancer is spreading..If you want a communist country go to China and Russia, better yet Iran would love you.
