Billionaire donors are livid.

"The billionaire donors I hear are livid," one Republican
operative told The Huffington Post. "There is some holy hell
to pay. Karl Rove has a lot of explaining to do ... I don't
know how you tell your donors that we spent $390 million and
got nothing."....If conservative billionaires are looking
for something else to be mad about, I'd recommend the Romney
campaign's apparent habit of paying about 50 percent more
for TV spots than the Obama campaign. That helped line the
pockets of their media consultants and buyers, but it didn't
do much to win the election.

The reaction to the re-election of our first black president
from the radical right ranged from sputtering rage and name-
calling to calls for a new Southern secession, mass
emigration to Europe, or even the break-up of the United
States. The loss of a white majority in the United States
has helped drive a truly explosive growth of the radical
right in the last three years, and now that Obama has been
re-elected, the radical right may grow more dangerous still.
Summed up on Fox News, Bill O'Reilly said: "The white
establishment is now the minority. It's not a traditional
America anymore."
