Lesson for today:

Conservatives let the conservative media delude them and separate them from reality. The MSM got Nate Silver of the New York Times predicting the election correctly. Conservatives got Dick Morris, Micheal Barone and Karl Rove predicting a landslide. Separating yourself from reality is not successful.

And THIS joker proved that point, not even knowing who Nate Silver IS until I educated him on Monday.

Your quoting NATE SILVER, a BLOGGER, of the NY TIMES is "sad desperation", BOY.
You'll "post anything to try and lie/cheat to deny reality!"
Thanks for dancing like a puppet, BOY!
LMAO!
When you choose to immerse yourself in an alternate reality and mock those of us who are fact-based, you will inevitability be embarrassed, if not humiliated, by your stunning willful ignorance.

If you didn't see the Obama victory coming; if you actually expected Romney to win in a landslide - you have been willingly duped by the rightwing propaganda machine.

You made a CHOICE to be misinformed. It's time to wake up!

A question conservatives can't afford to ignore:

----------

f you're a rank-and-file conservative, you're probably ready to acknowledge that ideologically friendly media didn't accurately inform you about Election 2012. Some pundits engaged in wishful thing; others feigned confidence in hopes that it would be a self-fulfilling prophecy; still others decided it was smart to keep telling right-leaning audiences what they wanted to hear.

But guess what?

You haven't just been misinformed about the horse race. Since the very beginning of the election cycle, conservative media has been failing you. With a few exceptions, they haven't tried to rigorously tell you the truth, or even to bring you intellectually honest opinion. What they've done instead helps to explain why the right failed to triumph in a very winnable election.

Why do you keep putting up with it?

I posted this after the 2010 midterms...

----------

So how longer can the Republican party remain a viable, national party?

Not much longer.

Having already alienated blacks and Hispanics, now that they've turned their guns on Americans of Arab descent, there's simply not the numbers of potential GOP voters left to give them any sort of majority within the next 15 years.

Even some of their own are acknowledging this fundamental statistical truth:

----------

Michael Medved
No Political Future for an All-White G.O.P

Why, then, did Bush win the White House while McCain suffered humiliating defeat? The answer is that in eight years the nonwhite portion of electorate soared -- from 19 percent of voters to 26 percent of voters. Among these voters, Obama won by a 4-to-1 margin -- easily wiping out McCain's big advantage among white voters.

For two reasons, these numbers command close attention for anyone concerned about the Republican future.

First, there is no chance that white voters will ever again comprise 74 percent of the electorate. Most projections for 2012 suggest that self-identified whites will comprise 70 percent or, at most, 72 percent of those who cast presidential ballots.

Second, it would be hard for any Republican to improve significantly on McCain's hefty 12-point margin among whites, which means that without an improved showing among Hispanics, blacks and Asians, GOP contenders will lose every time.

The math here is brutal and eye-opening. If Obama in 2012 wins the same percentage of the combined black, Asian and Hispanic vote that he won in 2008 (82 percent), then in order to beat him the GOP candidate would need to win an unimaginable 65 percent of all white voters -- whose numbers include such stalwart Democratic constituencies as gays, atheists, Jews and union members.

The 65 percent threshold represents a far higher percentage than Ronald Reagan won in his landslide against Jimmy Carter in 1980, or even his history-making 49-state re-election-sweep against Walter Mondale in '84.

Since white voters won't comprise larger portions of the electorate in future races, and since no Republican could compile a big enough white majority to win the election on those voters alone, that leaves only one possible path for GOP victory: more competitive performance among Hispanic, African-American and Asian citizens.

----------

Keep it up, wingnuts.

Keep alienating group after group of people who don't look like you. All you are doing is helping ensure generations of Democratic majorities.

----------

.
Now you would hope that the right will learn something from yesterday's defeat. I've already heard some of the more level-headed conservatives being somewhat reflective on the issue.

But Fox "news" and Bill O'Reilly clearly don't get it, as evidenced by O'Reilly's cluelessly racist rant last night.

Time will tell. The ball's in the Republican court now. Do they want to finally move into the future or will they continue to fight the battle they've already lost and become a permanent minority party?

Washington wakes up to deja vu

Still, the election hardly amounted to a mandate for change.

Instead, it will be the same players gathered around the negotiating table — or refusing to negotiate — as the government tries to deal with a pending fiscal calamity that includes the expiration of the Bush tax cuts,

the end of Obama’s payroll tax cut,

a steep reduction in defense and domestic spending known in Washington-speak as “sequestration” and a debt that exceeds $16 trillion.

7 Times In 2008 Obama Promised To Create 7 Million New Jobs

President Obama often comes under attacks from Republicans for his failure to deliver on promises of new jobs that he made as a candidate in 2008.

Democrats blame the economic crisis for reaching further than previously envisioned.

In these seven videos from 2008 the President promises that he will created seven million new jobs in green energy and construction.

Conservatives were at an information disadvantage because so many right-leaning outlets wasted time on stories the rest of America dismissed as nonsense. WorldNetDaily brought you birtherism. Forbes brought you Kenyan anti-colonialism. National Review obsessed about an imaginary rejection of American exceptionalism, misrepresenting an Obama quote in the process, and Andy McCarthy was interviewed widely about his theory that Obama, aka the Drone Warrior in Chief, allied himself with our Islamist enemies in a "Grand Jihad" against America. Seriously?

Conservatives were at a disadvantage because their information elites pandered in the most cynical, self-defeating ways, treating would-be candidates like Sarah Palin and Herman Cain as if they were plausible presidents rather than national jokes who'd lose worse than George McGovern.

How many months were wasted on them?

How many hours of Glenn Beck conspiracy theories did Fox News broadcast to its viewers? How many hours of transparently mindless Sean Hannity content is still broadcast daily? Why don't Americans trust Republicans on foreign policy as they once did? In part because conservatism hasn't grappled with the foreign-policy failures of George W. Bush. A conspiracy of silence surrounds the subject. Romney could neither run on the man's record nor repudiate it. The most damaging Romney gaffe of the campaign, where he talked about how the 47 percent of Americans who pay no income taxes are a lost cause for Republicans? Either he was unaware that many of those people are Republican voters, or was pandering to GOP donors who are misinformed. Either way, bad information within the conservative movement was to blame.

LASER-LIKE FOCUS:

OBAMA‘S JOBS COUNCIL HASN’T MET IN SIX MONTHS

Hey, remember all those times we were told President Obama was focused like a laser (or something) on jobs?

Yeah, we remember that too.

Say, it must be awfully difficult to address the nation’s unemployment when, you know, your jobs council hasn’t met in six months.

Yes, you read that correctly:

the president‘s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness hasn’t met since January 17.

“Coming off the worst quarter of job-creation in two years, and with the worst jobs record of any president in modern history, it’s clear President Obama has failed to live up to his promises,” said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul.

With unemployment at 8.2 percent (and real unemployment much worse than that), some may think it rather odd that the president can find time to do back-to-back-to-back-to-back fundraisers and play his 100th round of golf but not find time to meet with this jobs panel.

Locally - One of the biggest surprises...9th district results.

Karen Ramsburg got 39% against Shuster's 64%

Impressive such neophyte could score so well against a well entrenched Republican.

I think thats better than DelGrosso did...

Kind of says...you could run ham sandwich on against Shuster and they would get 39%.

If the President does what he says he is going to do in his speech last night and works across party lines, he may be able to get something accomplished in the next 4 years. If the House and Senate can work across party lines and compromise with each other, they may be able to get something accomplished in the next 4 years.
We the people need to put our political differences aside and work with each other, not put each other down. The fate of our country depends upon we the people working together to make our futures brighter, not just for us, but for our children and grandchildren. Why there has got to be such political divide is beyond me. We should all be in it for the betterment of our society. That means putting aside our differences and doing what is best for the country, not the party. Hopefully we can come together in 2016 and vote the next President in because of his commitment to the country and the values he holds, not because of the D or R next to his name.

Mitch McConnell already said he's not willing to work with Obama...McConnell stiff arms Obama, Senate Dems:

Published: Nov. 7, 2012 at 4:09 AM
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI)-- Democrats held on to their thin majority in the U.S. Senate Tuesday, but Minority Leader Mitch McConnell indicated he wasn't ready to roll over.

While McConnell congratulated President Obama on his re-election, the Kentucky Republican was in no mood to concede any political ground, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal reported.

"The American people did two things: They gave President Obama a second chance to fix the problems that even he admits he failed to solve during his first four years in office, and they preserved Republican control of the House of Representatives," McConnell said in a statement.

"The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president's first term, they have simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do together with a Congress that restored balance to Washington after two years of one-party control.

"Now it's time for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely divided Senate, step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment, and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office.
