The election of Obama proves that the electoral college does not work.
The reason that our founding fathers put in an electoral college was to prevent people like Obama from being elected. They knew that the media would hype someone that was not truly worthy of serving so the idea of having an electoral college make the final decision was put in. If the electoral college had worked, they would have overridden the popular vote and elected McCain.

Obama had no managerial experience coming into the election in '08. None. That means that even a drive-thru manager would have been more qualified than Obama. The toughest job in the world has been said to be President of the US. How does someone with no managerial experience manage a country? How does someone with a drug background get elected? How does someone connected to terrorists get the nod? These and many more questions should have been addressed by the media. Instead, they hyped Obama as the Second Coming. Obama's shady background should have caused the electoral college to override the popular vote and elect McCain. Since they didn't, there is no point to keeping it in place.

Would you like some cheese with your whine?

Obama won in a LANDSLIDE in 2008 and he's going to win the popular and electoral vote again this year.

The draft-dodging mormon plutocrat is toast and rightfully so.

Obama barely pulling off the win in '08 is not a landslide, idiot. The real draft dodger is Bill Clinton. I think Obama dodged the draft by going to Indonesia for most of his life. You know what else? Had the electoral college worked, Obama would not be President.

That's my point. Obama was elected due to the media being in the tank for him. Had the electoral college done its job, they would have overriden the popular vote and elected McCain.

Obama is the first President to have a higher unemployment rate when running for re-election than when he first came into office.

Re: The election of Obama proves that the electoral college does not work.
ALL presidential candidates should have FULL disclosure of college records, passports, marriage/divorce and taxes. SIMPLE. (this means YOU Obama and Romney)
IF not...they are no better than liars, cheaters and thieves and you are supporting lies, cheating, stealing and private deals by letting them get away with it.

We as AMERICANS have to have our background checked, from credit to criminal history at minimum wage jobs now and have to fill-out DEPARTMENT of HOMELAND SECURITY paperwork to work at call centers and Burger King. How exactly is it OK for them to do this to us and NOT disclose everything on their end?

You know what is really sickening? There was a third-party debate last month (FOUR CANDIDATES) and Larry King hosted it (retired from CNN) and CNN didn't even carry it. People can and SHOULD vote for whom ever they want, but to not even tell the public en mass that they have choices (not just two) is NOT democracy and is in fact sickening and insulting to every solider/sailor/marine/airmen that ever served, the Constitution and all those that have gone before us.

Remember: voting for Obama or Romney is a vote for "MONSANTO" and since both of those two candidates are bought and paid for by Goldman Sachs and BOTH have met with the Bilderbergers, it doesn't matter which one if someone votes for either one of them.

Vote for Obama or Romney and YOU support GOLDMAN SACHS, MONSANTO and the Bilderbergers along with additional support to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Tri-Lateral Commission.

IF you were NOT aware of this and have not done research on this..then how can you "HONESTLY" vote?

Re: The election of Obama proves that the electoral college does not work.
Barak Obama, the most unqualified man to ever hold office. His background includes:
Community Organizing
2-year Senate Experience

What a joke. This guy's resume is so empty that his people said that he got his managerial experience by managing his campaign for President! That's like someone applying for a commercial driving job and saying that they got their experience driving around while looking for a job. With a resume like that, he would not even be qualified to work the drive-thru window at McDonald's. Just remember this, people, if the US falls apart at some point it will be due to Obama's managerial ineptitude.

To reiterate: NO MAN HAS EVER HELD OFFICE WITH AS LITTLE EXPERIENCE AS OBAMA.

Obama received the most votes for a presidential candidate in American history

Obama won the popular and electoral vote by the largest margin in 12 years.

the last time a candidate won the popular vote and lost the election was when al gore lost the electoral college to lil' bush in 2000. get your facts straight moron

The point of the electoral college is to prevent people from voting for someone not qualified to hold office. It doesn't matter the number of popular votes. The point is that the electoral college should override the popular vote when the candidate elected does not merit holding office. Take your "most votes" bullshit and shove it up your ass. The electoral college was put in place to override the popular vote when someone like Obama was elected.
