Is this the death of the Republican party? No chance | Gary Younge

Nov 18, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Guardian

Republican courting of white people was based on strategy not principle. To reach out wider would not require a great leap Supporters of the US Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, watch results on television on election day.

<quoted text>Only the ignorant sheeple believe that nonsense. The republican party represents the middle class and those who believe in less govt.

The liberal elite are the folks behind the mega corporations who snuggle up to govt to increase their wealth and domination. They are all about corporate welfare and buyouts at taxpayer expense. The libs want to take money from the hardworking folks and give it to the lazy and stupid. Libs think the stupid and lazy have a right to our money. There are thugs who will steal our money before the govt. does but they go to jail. The biggest thug is the govt. who can now steal from us without objection from those who are supposed to represent us.
The sheeple have been cultivated and now they rule. It will be unfortunate to see how much damage will occur.
Only delusional teabaggers such as yourself, Romney, Rove, Limbaughtomy and FOX believe that.

That's why your party lost the last election and your party will lose the next.

Since teabaggers think they can buy elections, you shouldn't waste any time.

GO STUFF YOURSELF.

Not only was Obama strong in states with the highest percentage of college graduates, he was also strong in states with the highest average household incomes. For example, the five states with the HIGHEST average household incomes (which, not coincidentally, were also among the states with the highest percentage of college graduates).
Maryland $67,469
New Hampshire $67,287
Connecticut $67,165
New Jersey $65,072
Massachusetts $62,809
Virginia $62,776

With the exception of New Mexico, the ten poorest states all voted for Romney. So much for out of touch Mitten's nitwit theory about losing due to "gifts from Obama."

2. West Virginia
3. Arkansas
4. Kentucky

So the failure of George Bush to reinforce when asked, American Special Ops Forces to move in and capture or kill Osama Bin Laden in 2002 in the mountains of Tora Bora is Clinton's Fault? That's as about a goof of an excuse as any other lobbied by the right.

Actually, the GOP is down now to 24 Governorships, they were up to 30 before the Nov elections.

What newspaper are you getting your information, or is embellishing the Republican brand after a thorough rejection a couple days ago?

And you spiel would be somewhat believable...EXCEPT: New Mexicans elected a Republican Governor, Susana Martinez, in 2010 who remains very popular today..somewhere in the 65-70 percent range.
AND, just this year, Republican candidates in New Mexico knocked off a couple of long time Democrats in the state legislature, one who had held office since prior to his replacement's birth.
AND, San Juan County, where the indurtry is primary oil and gas, remains overwhelmingly Republican. Yes, that would be the San Juan County were New Mexico gets a huge, disproportionate amount of tax monies for state operations, like the school system, etc., all of which is run by Democrats out of Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
AND, Republicans continue to win more and more state governorships.
AND, Republicans, including TEA Party Conservatives, retained the House of Representatives, because the people voted for 'em. Apparently a good chunk of the nation's citizens, primarily where people work for living, did NOT want President Obama to have smooth sailing to his socialist "ideals".
AND, fully 48 percent of the nation, nearly 60 million voters, soundly rejected President Obama..who won by less than 2 percentage points.
So, Eric, you may continue to delude yourself into thinking that the left has some sort of "mandate". It does not. In fact, those who oppose Obama are even more resolute in their goal of thwarting Obama's socialist agenda.
Obama's second term will be marked by an even more stark division of the nation than he experienced in his first term. As Obama's "plan" continues to fail, look for greater losses to socialist Democrats in 2014, culminating in a loss of the White House in 2016.
Most likely to someone who makes Mitt Romney look like a liberal populist by comparison.
By then, it will me a much tougher job to save the nation from your failed leader than it would have been if the job had begun this year. My only hope is that the nation can be saved at all, for there certainly is no guarantee it will be.

No worry, we'll nominate Hillary in '16, and she'll likely pick a hispanic running mate.

The old white guy the GOPasaurs nominate won't stand a chance once again, even if they put the Cuban on the ticket.

What it means is that you had people who didn't want EITHER candidate from the parties they DIDN'T vote for.

What defined the GOP this election to me was when IN tossed out one of the most powerful moderates in congress--richard luger--in place of teabagger mourdock. They then lost the election because mourdok thinkss rape is god's will. So noe, the repubs lost not just a seat but lost a HUGE amount of power and eperience in order to run a fiscally-retarded teabagger.

Crowing over the defeat of two black candidates there Billy? You must be a racist.
Mia Love is a Utah Mayor who was running for congress. She remains a Mayor. And given the penchant for the Democrat Party to silently support third party candidates in close races, Mia Love lost to political shenanigans.
She faced not only a Democrat, but also a Libertarian, in the race. Love and the Libertarian, together, received more votes than Democrat Matheson..which means more people wanted someone other than Matheson to go to congress.
She'll be back.

Yeah, you could see that was a mistake, way back when the tea party(Koch bros.) got involved heavily, in their primary....plus Luger had huge seniority and was'nt snowed by all the new bullsh*t in Washington...a huge loss, and Indiana lost power, in the bargain....

If your list isn't the perfect example of how rich racist Democrats lord it over the poorer states who want to be free of the chains put on them by liberalism, I don't know what is.

All of those southern states were primarily Democrat until liberalism drove them into the ground. They've been voting for opportunity ever since, but the liberal elitist carpetbaggers from up north continue to keep them down.

My state, New Mexico, is slowly coming to the realization that liberalism is a failure. We've voted in a Republican woman as Governor..who also happens to be the first Hispanic woman to become a governor in the United States. Libertarian Gary Johnson is from New Mexico as well, and served as Governor.

And we are slowly replacing corrupted long time Democrats in the state legislature. In one amazing example, a TEA party candidate beat a Democrat who had held the office since before the TEA partier was even born.

In the 1960s, That was about the time the Jefferson Davis Democrats from the Southern States converted to Caucus with the Republican Party, where they are entrenched right to this day.

Fox, the Public Relations department of the Republican Party, or Propaganda machine of the GOP does a magnificant job of turd polishing. Look what they done for disgraced Marine Ollie North

You're talking about before the Civil War, They all were overwhelmingly Democrats since before the Civil War up until 1964.

Since even before 1964, even as Democrats, those States were Socially Conservatives, and that's framing it nicely.

Since their founding those States have been poorer than the Northern States, and the Civil War didn't add anything of value to those States, they were all for 100 years after the Civil War, economic wastelands, some of them if none have yet to celebrate 50 years of indoor toilets. A lot of those States still use ditches for storm water run off.

You are exaggerating a little to much, or you don't get around in America.

Typically, your own vile little post contradicts you. First you claim the Dems are the "last bastion of institutionalized racism," then you admit their "racism" is all in the past and ended in the '60s. Which of course is true, and I wasn't denying.

You have a long history on these boards of being a turd yourself, not to mention a liar.

Dismissed.

Your history knowledge sucks. The KKK was formed through the auspices of the baptist church, not the dems. Here in indiana, the klan ruled for many years--and the klansmen in office were republican.
