‘We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are.” – Anais Nin

If there’s one word that seemed to characterize Romney supporters’ immediate reaction to Obama’s victory, it’s “shock.”

A conservative Facebook friend posted this status: “For the first time in my life I am at a loss for words…absolutely baffled by the electorate and the election results, especially considering the current state the country is in.”

A radio reporter interviewed a woman at the Romney campaign party in Denver shortly after the election was called. Her response simmered with anger as she pondered the reality of how more than half the nation had voted: “What don’t they see?? It’s mind-boggling!”

What they don’t see are people like me.

I’m a 50-year-old white woman who lives in the swing state of Colorado. I’m married, I’m a mom, I have a PhD, and I’m a Christian…

    I fast forwarded through all the comments because I started seeing comments that do not match up with what I think your article intended and were rather inflammatory. Your reasons for reelecting President Obama are many I share and I respect you for voting based on principles and not just party. It’s hard for people who come from certain perspectives and family history to do that. My husband and I – Democrat Pagans are surrounded by Republican Christians who were willing to vote for Romney despite his stands on the issues you pointed out and so many more. My husband is finishing up welding certification – a great part of which was funded by a Pell Grant and selling my gold and silver jewelry and coins! He will be able to pay back what he’s taken because he now has a trade that will put food on our table and a roof over our head for the rest of our lives! He will be ABLE to pay taxes because he now has a viable trade/career. Ugh….so frustrating. Now the people who were pissed Romney lost are petitioning to tear our country apart further with secession. Rather than try to learn the art of compromise to get things done they want to destroy our country. So sad.
