Matthews, Madow, Maher, Huffington, Brazile tweet about Obama win, GOP loss

BrazileThe intense elation or the horror (depending upon one’s political perspective) of the President election 2012 has passed and cooler minds (whether pleased or depressed) has begun to kick in over America.



On Wednesday, Bayoubuzz looked at some of the comments made post-election of conservative pundits who made the national news, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Dick Morris, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump.  

Today, we look at some of the social media comments from those on the other side of the political divide which includes Chris Matthews, Rachael Maddow, Bill Maher, Chris Cillizza and Ariana Huffington and Donna Brazile. 

 Chris Matthews [email protected]_chris who has been playing damage control after a comment post-election “I'm so glad we had that storm last week because I think the storm was one of those things."

To clarify - I was thrilled at the cooperation between the President and state officials that made the country proud. Great bipartisanship.

Karl Rove will be doing some 'splainin' to his big donors today.

Still waiting on Florida...

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) isn't going away quietly.

Students at Ole Miss didn't take Tuesday well.

Bill Maher

Obama won single women by THIRTY EIGHT PERCENT! The message to Republicans was clear: Get off of me.

Great victory for the people last night;people also still idiots: see Prop 37,they voted AGAINST knowing what they're putting in their mouth

6 Nov Bill Maher [email protected]

Since Obama won almost all the swing states, and we somehow elected them our deciders, shouldn't that be considered a mandate?

Chris Cillizza

Note to Republicans despairing today: Nothing lasts forever. Even cold November Rain.

Arianna Huffington [email protected]

It wouldn't be the day after an election without the declaration that "there's going to be a lot of soul-searching."

Facebook post:

"Congratulations, President Obama! The people have spoken, and they want you to have the most stressful job in America!"

Part of my post election reflection will involve how to improve eligible voters access to voting. Time to remove these onerous restrictions.

What's on your post election menu? Gosh, I slept a full 8 hours and enjoying my own space. Only two post election TV shows & speeches. Amen!

22h Donna Brazile [email protected]

Change is hard. Difficult to digest and absorb. Limbaugh insults voters because they believe in President Obama's leadership and vision.

22h Donna Brazile [email protected]

Are you listening to Rush Limbaugh? He is just full of hate, venom and vitriol. Perhaps he should form a new party. #backtothefuture.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
