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 ‏@hardball_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.

Franklin Graham sees ominous portents in Tuesday's elections results.

Bill Maher

Bill Maher ‏@billmaher

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

13h Bill Maher ‏@billmaher

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 ‏@billmaher

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 ‏@ariannahuff

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!"

1h Donna Brazile ‏@donnabrazile

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

1h Donna Brazile ‏@donnabrazile

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!

“@ThePlumLineGS: Election gave Dems the leverage in the "fiscal cliff" talks. That and more in our AM Roundup: ” True

22h Donna Brazile ‏@donnabrazile

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

22h Donna Brazile ‏@donnabrazile

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