Since it has been determined to be absolutely necessary to overthrow the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, even though Egypt and Israel had managed to co-exist for several decades, the results are now a tragedy ("Islamist wins Egypt presidency," June 25). President Barack Obama was instrumental in supporting this and used the might of theU.S. military to help achieve it. He had to know that the vacuum created would be eventually filled by the Muslim Brotherhood, a virulent anti-Semitic organization, whose stated chief goal is the eradication of Israel and the Jewish people.

Primary races settled this week reflect the underlying divide in the Maryland's minority party, pitting Republicans who stand on conservative principle against those who are willing to be more pragmatic as the underdogs in a blue state. In some cases the ideologues triumphed; in others the moderates squeaked out a victory. It's a push-and-pull that echoes fights dogging the Republican Party nationally. In Frederick, a conservative delegate toppled the state Senate minority leader by accusing him of compromising with Democrats.

Frustrated candidates and voters waited hours for results in this week's closest primaries, but elections officials insisted that delays and minor glitches were customary and that the state's voting system worked smoothly. While Marylanders may want electronic machines to spit out instantaneous numbers when polls close, elections officials say the reality of counting is more cumbersome, with room for error. The lag for results in Baltimore City and Baltimore County stemmed from missteps by poll workers and judges, as well as computer software glitches in some places.

Two-thirds of American voters support Roe v. Wade. Women overwhelmingly favored Barack Obama over Mitt Romney, the Republican who wanted to de-fund Planned Parenthood and overturn Roe. Public approval of Congress is at or near its lowest level ever recorded, and public overall has an even worse opinion of the GOP than of Democrats. So naturally with all these facts in mind, it was time for the House Republicans to band together to pass legislation that restricts women's right to choose in a manner that is not only patently unconstitutional but has no chance of passage in the Senate whatsoever.

A group of about 30 angry voters gathered at War Memorial Plaza in Baltimore yesterday to voice their concern over the general election in November, again charging that the gubernatorial race was "stolen" by Democrats and calling for election reform.Carrying placards of protest, the group of Republicans and a few Democrats walked four blocks west to a building that houses the Maryland attorney general's office. There, the protesters denounced the office for defending the election at a trial in January, among other criticisms.

Final unofficial election results, compiled Friday by the county elections board, changed no outcomes but narrowed Democrat Martin O'Malley's victory to a tight 677-vote edge over Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. in the gubernatorial race. County voters were kinder to other Democrats. Benjamin L. Cardin won the U.S. Senate contest with a nearly 10,000-vote edge over Michael S. Steele, and Democrats running for state comptroller and attorney general had even larger victory margins.

Perhaps the most difficult thing to figure out about this year's election results is the message the voters were sending to the Supreme Court about how the politicians and the pressure groups would handle the abortion issue if it were left entirely or mostly to them to manage.That is a question of fundamental importance, because the Supreme Court appears to be thinking seriously -- for the first time in its history -- of letting a matter that had been governed almost exclusively by the Constitution be settled in the political arena.

Somebody needs to break the news to the Republican candidates looking to unseat President Barack Obama that the conservative tide that swept the nation in 2010 has receded. Denying public employees the right to bargain collectively and calling for strict limits on the reproductive rights of women won't necessarily play well in 2012. At least it didn't on Tuesday, when voters in several telltale states went to the polls for local elections. Most encouraging for Democrats was the overwhelming defeat of Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich's law limiting the collective bargaining rights of some 350,000 government workers.

I think President Obama's claim that the election results were a mandate is stretching reality ("On taxes, 'Americans agree' with Obama, Axelrod says," Nov. 12). Approximately 120 million people voted in the election, and of that number a little more than 58 million voted for Mr. Romney. Mr. Obama's margin of victory was only about 1.6 percent. Almost half the voters opposed his policies. Granted, Mr. Obama won a clear majority of electoral votes. But the huge number of people who voted against him does not give him the mandate he claims.

President Obama's re-election has caused right-wingers to become completely unhinged. They are purple-faced and apoplectic, convinced that an ignorant horde of government-dependent social leeches have destroyed traditional America and banished God from the country. The craziest comments came from certifiably loony celebrities. Gun-crazy rocker Ted Nugent tweeted that "Pimps whores and welfare brats and their soulless supporters hav (sic) a president to destroy America," while former "Saturday Night Live" goofball Victoria Jackson let loose a series of tweets, saying in part, "Thanks a lot, Christians, for not showing up. You disgust me ... In the Good vs. Evil battle, today Evil won. " Egomaniacal rich guy Donald Trump simply called for a revolution.

As a septuagenarian (and Democrat), I was happy that President Barack Obama won re-election, but sad that the morning-after TV news shows reported the win as "the election results validated the Obama team's game plan," rather than the election was the result of a real choice of the American people ("Re-election," Nov. 7). Our elections are now reported by commentators who appear to have been trained primarily as sportscasters and who speak of who "wins" rather than who was elected, how many points ahead or behind a candidate's "game plan" may be and generally cover campaigns as sporting events.

Democrat Tom Barrett's defeat in Wisconsin is also a loss for Gov. Martin O'Malley and his Democratic Governors Association which poured about $3.2 million into the attempt to topple Republican Gov. Scott Walker. O'Malley noted in a statement that Democrats were outspent "ten to one" in Wisconsin. He looked for the silver lining of last night's election results in Wisconsin, saying in a statement that "Republican governors across the country are on notice" and "The people of their states will not tolerate partisan overreach.

LONDON -- Nationwide local election results yesterday scuttled the Conservative government's prospects of calling an early general election to give Prime Minister John Major his own popular mandate.Both the major opposition Labor Party and the minority Liberal-Democrats scored successes at Conservative expense, leaving the government in a state of political shock.Mr. Major admitted that the results were "quite disappointing," but he quickly added that, with the economy showing signs of recovery, there was "a great deal to look forward to."

SARAJEVO, Bosnia -- Not a single Muslim is believed to live in the eastern Bosnian city of Srebrenica. Thousands fled, or were killed, when Bosnian Serb gunmen seized the enclave more than two years ago in what human rights officials call Europe's worst atrocity since World War II.But, based on municipal election results released yesterday, Srebrenica has voted for a city council with a Muslim majority.Victory by Muslim candidates in Srebrenica, and in several other eastern Bosnian municipalities purged violently of non-Serbs, was made possible because refugees were allowed to cast ballots in races in their prewar hometowns.
