;--the person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President.
Do you honestly think that the states that Obama won want come forward and vote putting him over the 270 Electoral College Votes necessary to win? Hell all of Romney's 206 Electoral Votes could abstain and it wouldn't keep Obama from getting his 270.

Not that it is relevant this year, but if an election goes to the House it is settled not by vote of the Reps but by vote of state delegations.
I recently looked into this, and the GOP have a majority in about 2/3 of the delegations.
