Barack Obama Wins Rhode Island

Voters in Rhode Island on Tuesday cast their ballot for Barack Obama, giving him the state's 4 Electoral votes.

Barack Obama won Rhode Island’s 4 electoral votes on Tuesday, defeating Republican Mitt Romney.

The Wall Street Journal along with the Associated Press has called the race in Rhode Island declaring Obama the winner.

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 Rhode Island. The state has typically been a Democratic stronghold in recent presidential elections. 

The economy was a key issue for many voters in the state.

Rio Sakonnet, It's the insults that turn people off. I agree it would be boring if we all agreed . Civil discourse is how America came to be with each Representative stating a point of view. It's what makes our form of Government desirable by many countries. When a poster uses a fake name, and calls people ignorant because they don't buy the idea of more Socialism. Or more Government control / debt it's not discussion . That type of post angers most and they react with the same.

Joe: There are overt insults and there are passive-aggressive insults. It is my observation that Naome engages in the former and you engage in the latter. Saying that Naome "calls people ignorant because they don't buy the idea of more Socialism" is a passive-aggressive insult because it presupposes that Naome is advocating Socialism. That's not true; those are your unkind words and they are an insult just as much as when she calls you a "Fascist nozzle". The reason why Naome and others have such a strong reaction to you is that you couch your insults in what you consider to be civil discourse. The problem is that your words and the incorrect assumptions are just as insulting as anything Naome writes. Your passive-agressive comments are not civil and they're not honest. Please stop deluding yourself. @Rio Sakonnet: I could not agree more.

Joe Sousa. 5:56 am on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 The human capacity for self-delusion truly is remarkable. Most people out there end up believing exactly what they want to believe even when the truth is staring them right in the face. Tell ya what, Skippy - you stop calling those who disagree with your John Birch view of the world from your bunker "Socialist" or point the way out of "your country" and we'll lay off... Your record here doesn't entitle you to whine about rough handling. You've earned it. "... they don't buy the idea of more Socialism." We know you don't like Socialism - but your definition seems fluid. You do understand that nearly every public service qualifies as Socialist? What's insulting is when a half-baked idea is touted and shouted as sacrosanct. Take off the Jack Boots, Jethro and take down the banners - you're American. Fascists aren't welcome, here. http://tinyurl.com/cdxnoen

Who shall we cast as Kahmunrah? Must also look good in a skirt... - "They DIDN'T call me Kahmunrah the trustworthy! They called me Kahmunrah the BLOODTHIRSTY, who kills whoever dosen't give Kahmunrah exactly what he want's in the moment that he want's it, which is RIGHT NOW, when I had also better get the combination and the Tablet!"

If you show up at the sandbox, we're going to play with your toys.
