It's still too early to make that assumption. Things can change overnight in the world of politics.
Once the American public realize they've been fed a line of lies and deceptions when Obamacare kicks in and see even less in their paychecks next year, the conservative solutions may start to look like a lot better as the alternative.
There are also some very strong voices emerging within the party only a few months after the last election.
oh but lets make assumptions about anything and everything but that!

The focus for conservatives at the present time should only be on the survival of the economy and the nation. Things will fall into
place in due time once sanity and common sense is restored.
However, as long as we condone the killing of the most vulnerable among us simply because of irresponsible behavior in too many instances, we can never expect anything good to come out of it.
Complacency and self-absorption has been the undoing of many societies in the past and empires have fallen for the same reasons.
Morality and American Politics are complete strangers to each other.

It's just the nature of the animal today and good folks will learn to separate the two in an efficacious manner.

The Repukes think they wage war by lies, out CIA agents and wreck the economy, then get re-elected by pointing the finger and going:
"WAHHHHHHH! Clinton did it!"
Speaking of CIA agents and operatives where are the Benghazi survivors? Why haven't they all been subpoenaed to testify before a house committee or sumpin? Why don't we know their names, we were paying their handsome salaries right?

Who cares if they were engaged in an illegal war and arms transfers Merica needs to know all this stuff so halfwits can debate it on FOX.

Tea Party Group Boycotts Fox – For Going Too Far to the Left!

“We think [Benghazi] is a coverup and Fox is aiding and abetting it. This is the way Hitler started taking over Germany, by managing and manipulating the news media.”

Why did Romney get far fewer votes than McCain?
Too many church people didn't vote.
The reasons Romney lost are not as simple as narrowing it down to just one explanation.

There are far more people dependent on government now because Obama is strangling the economy and people were afraid of losing what they had.

Romney dropped the ball on two specific occasions - during the debate on foreign policy when he could have nailed Obama about the Benghazi fiasco and after he stood mute at the town hall debate when the moderator took Obama's side.

Both were golden opportunites he simply let pass by. He also made the mistake of letting all those negative ads go unchallenged.

Romney didn't have the personality to get the urgency across in his message that was much needed in the last election.

The liberals poo-poo the notion that the hurricane affected the election results, but polls show that a lot of people switched over to Obama at the last minute because of it.

Unfortunately, his Mormonism certainly didn't help but that was the least of the reasons why he lost.

I was at my bank today; there was a short line.

There was just one lady in front of me, an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars.

It was obvious she was a little irritated ...

She asked the teller, "Why it change?

Yesterday, I get two hunat dollafo yen.

Today I only get hunat eighty? Why it change?"

The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, "Fluctuations."

The Asian lady says, "Fluc you white people too"

First off, let me say $9 trillion over a 40yr span is a joke. If everyone were serious about putting a dent in poverty it would take immediate action, not something done over time. Inject $9 trillion in thus year & get immediate results. 2nd, welcome to the 2000s. Nobody has to make a pact, it up to each individual to create their own destiny. When both parents are forced to work, children wind up having too much time on their hands. The result is children making childish mistakes. You can't blame Americas short coming on one thing. It's a mixture of things that makes shit so frustrated!

BS

Akin won a contested primary because he dominated the born-again Christian vote.

Akin then substituted Bible teaching for biological reality and lost an election that any other Republican would have won easily.

I've seen the numbers__that approach doesn't work at all and makes liars out of young people, particular the girls. There are more 14 year old girls having babies today (by % of pop.) than there were in my day when birth control pills were still being tested and abortions were illegal.

Many factors in play, but raging hormones don't have a conscience.

One has exactly nothing to do with the other__ a beyond stupid comparison.

Zimmerman goes on trial this summer and a jury will decide his fate, his wife also faces charges for perjury. If Zimmerman had shot the unarmed teen in some states he would already be serving time.

Dumb carol doesn't make the connection to the attire to do a "Wham" song...now if they were only doing something from Liberace or Lawrence Welk she might have gotten it...or not.(You didn't notice the short shorts either?)
