Barack Obama Wins New Jersey

Voters in New Jersey on Tuesday cast their ballot for Barack Obama, giving him the state's 14 electoral votes.

Barack Obama won New Jersey’s 14 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 New Jersey. The state has typically been a Democratic stronghold in recent presidential elections.

Monk - 4.4% of the population is on welfare. when you and other throw out that "half the country is on government assistance" rhetoric you do realize that that include Welfare (again, just 4%) , food stamps, Social Security (seriously, you count that as goverment assistance when people who receive it now WORKED all their lives and get it as a result of WORKING) and Medicaid. And by the way Romney;s 47% comment was NOT distorted. Have to watched it and listented to it ver batum? "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it." "Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax," Romney said, and that his role "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

You're another idiot. The country collapsed under GWB and we are picking the pieces up. Why don't you fucking pick up a book?

I'm assuing you voted for Bush both times. but I won't hold my breath for an apology from you for the ecomomic crisis that propelled Obama to victory to begin with in '08.
