Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus, unveiling the RNC's report on how to move forward after losses on Election Day, said on Monday that there is "no one reason we lost."

"Our message was weak, our ground game was insufficient, we weren't inclusive, we were behind in both data and digital, and our primary and debate process needed improvement," Priebus said at a press conference on the report. "So there's no one solution, there's a long list of them."

Also, leosnana, I find it a little ironic that you were preaching to me last night quoting scripture about anger and name calling.
Anger is not a sin unless it causes you to sin. Let me tell you, Jesus was pretty angry a few times in the scriptures and didn't mince words either calling self-righteous Jewish religious leaders "white-washed hypocrites" and used a whip to drive out the money changers in the temple.
Just think of most liberals as white-washed hypocrites and money changers who have no respect for God and little tolerance towards those who do.
Righteous anger is justified and actually appropriate when it comes to exposing wrongdoing by those in power and leading others astray with falsehoods and deceipt.
But that's not in the red print--saying one thing and doing another...you callin' J.C. a hypocrite, dumb carol? That should go over really well where you're goin'/(BTW, what's "deceipt"?

If women get paid maternity leave, why not paid paternity leave for men?

Perhaps if the Jews in the 1930s had shown a little righteous anger, history would have been recorded differently.

But I take back saying most liberals are like the white-washed hypocrites Jesus rebuked or the money changers he drove out of the temple.

It's the ones behind perpetrating a liberal progressive ideology that are both those things. Most liberals just happen to fall too easily for their lies and deceipt.

Joining Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, and Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell is declaring surrender on Obamacare.

He will no longer fight it.

You’d never know that if you paid attention to his preferred words about Obamacare at CPAC. McConnell told the crowd that “Obamacare should be repealed root and branch.” He also told the crowd that those who think he’s given up the fight are wrong. He pledged to continue to fight.

I call bull.

The part of his speech that McConnell hopes you ignore is him saying,“When it came to Obamacare, we gave it everything we have, everything we have, and we just lost.” He’s also signaling that the Senate Republicans will neither filibuster the continuing resolution nor shut down the government.

Jesus was not a Jewish leader in his day. In fact, he was considered a rebel by those who were.

They were the ones who plotted to have him killed.

So what exactly is your point again?

Oh fer kerrrists sake. These jokers don't know what to do with themselves. One moment they say they must stop the anti abortion, anti women, anti gay stuff.
Next moment, they have a new bill against women.
Those women who get abortions want to deny that the fetus is a life in order to soothe their conscience about legalized murder. Why not just make abortion legal until age five and remove all doubt?

After doing a little research, thought you might find this interesting too.
The stories of the Bible took place in and around what is now the Middle East. The majority of the world’s ethnic and racial groups were not specifically identified but some of those who are identified were black.
There is a strong indication that some of the descendants of Noah through his son Ham were black. Ham had a son named Cush, which means "black" in Hebrew. Cush is the most common term designating color in reference to persons, people or lands used in the Bible. It’s used 58 times in the King James Version. The Greek and Latin word is Ethiopia.
In classical literature, Greek and Roman authors describe Ethiopians as black. Archaeology has found these people to be black.
Just FYI.
Homer knows this. Ask the series producers why Jesus is a good looking white guy.

There is paternity leave for men, and at the moment neither gender is being drafted. When that happens, if ever, all the R'Money and Cheney and Bush descendents, sons AND daughters. will still manage to avoid it, and you'll have died without issue long before.

Oh please. Sadam had nothing to do with Bin Laden. Nice try, dumbass. Iraq & Iran were at war for a decade & remained enemies. Your buddy helped out Iran by taking out Sadam in a war about oil.
So why wasn't the Iraq war (or Afghanistan war) cost on the budget??? I mean, you f*cking idiots keep screaming how budgets are the solution to everything. Seems to me the Bush budgets took us from a path to surpluses to the worst recession in 80 years, two quagmire wars, a near financial collapse & a housing collapse.
Why didn't the budgets stop all of that?
Saddam was a threat all by his lonesome.

Ask any democrat. I mean, besides the weasels who were the loudest to say so before they decided political gain was more important.

The Republican National Committee will formally endorse immigration reform on Monday and outline plans for a $10 million outreach to minority groups – gay voters among them – as part of a multi-step roadmap designed to make the GOP more "welcoming and inclusive" for voters who overwhelmingly supported Democrats in 2012.

The war in Iraq was launched March 20, 2003, in Baghdad and unexpectedly stretched on for 106 months, just short of nine years. During that time, 1,111,610 Americans served there for a total of 2,337,197 deployments, with some serving two or more times.

Four thousand, four hundred and eighty-eight of them came home in flag-draped coffins, including 110 women, according to Defense Department data. Thirty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-one were brought home with serious combat wounds ranging from concussions to multiple limb amputations. Two hundred and thirty-five took their own lives while deployed.

In Iraq, 115,376 Iraq civilians were killed between 2003 and 2011 as sectarian fighting intensified, according to the Brookings Institution's Iraq Index, while the number of internally displaced Iraqi civilians rose from 400,000 in 2003 to 2.7 million by 2010.
