Our elections are NOT A FOOTBALL GAME! It's not about 'fielding' a team who can 'win', but rather moving in a direction that is best for our country. Rather than talk about how your party can get more votes, try formulating a platform that represents more of the voters. Rather than find a segment of our society to use as a scapegoat and point blame while building a wave of hatred to ride into the White House, perhaps the Republicans can try to include all aspects of their hoped-for constituency.

You simply can't build on a foundation of 'winning at any cost' or one which alienates the very population you wish to include in your political movement. So, the Republicans huddle in their 'game' strategy, while the rest of us prepare for their usual policies of party before country for four more years. And they scratch their heads and wonder why America no longer finds them relevant...

He won because he crushed the economy like no one living ever saw before. The jobs created are all part time crap. People working or not, are still broke. They are a paycheck away from personal collapse. People voted for a security blanket They know obama is a huge fan of handouts. Obama is a big welfare state creator. Thats his specialty. Just look around.

It's obvious that the small majority of American voters who voted for Obama put social issues and race before the economy. They fell right into the hands of the liberal media who hand fed them the information needed to coerce them into re-electing Obama. Good news for all of you who voted for Obama, communist China had a mock election and Obama won! Geniuses!

Obama won because he had a fantastic first term and will eventually go down as this countries greatest president. It's as simple as that.

The nation is being taken over by the Barney generation. You know, the I want my fair share, everything has to be equal generation. We expect them to work? They don't know what work is. They want their share and they want it now handed to them on a silver plate. Might as well call us the United Socialist States of America. Get up and go to work everyday because America's lazy needs their lollipops.

Continue to live in your Fauxnews, WLS bubble, and you will continue to be shocked come election day.

You should really be blaming Fox News for betraying you. They reported what you wanted to hear instead of what was actually happenning.

The Republicans lost because they are mean spirited hypocrites, Mitch McConnel pledge to obstruct, glenn beck, sean hannity, rush linbaugh, mark levin all cost romnet the election due to nonstop insults to a thinking persons intelligence. Dissembling on the AM airwaves from 6 AM until 12 AM.

Using and distorting quotes out of context:
1: You didn't build that alone=True, we are all interdependent, all businesses use government funded developed infrastructure including the internet.:)

2; 'Vote for revenge', was a response to a lie told by romney to autoworkers to incite fear.

3: Benghazigate, a lurid conservative paranoid conspiracy porn at its worst.

http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/11/02/...

Over the top was the Republican block of a jobs bill for vets.

http://www.rollcall.com/news/senate_gop_block...

Jesus considered the needs of the people as Holy.

These modern republicans do not. Christian in name only, they threw their allegiance to a polytheistic cult leader, and ryan is a phoney who worships ayn rand.

Until the GOP re-embraces the values of Lincoln and Eisenhower they will continue to lose.

Stop dissembling, it insults me and make y'all look like bufoons, like donald trump.

Personally, I'm registered as an Independent. I am Morally Conservative, Socially Liberal. Love my neighbor, Love my enemy. The needs of the people are Holy.

This election was 'Blowback', Obama wound up with a mandate: Popular Vote + Electoral College Vote.

You did it to yourselves. Sean, Glenn, Rush, Mark and the others of their ilk deceived you. what are you going to do about it?

Already glenn has declared he is doubling down and he is dissembling as we speak, you, his audience should have the moral courage to confront him. Manufactured outrage and lies and fear don't cut it.

Or look forward to another defeat in 2016, and loss of the house.

Be truthful.

BS cannot withstand pressure.

In Albany NY we have a 12 Billion dollar development in NANO Science. America remains great, a leader, leaders are dynamic not static, times change, change with the times. Our foundation of freedom is rock solid, your guns and family and property are safe. The middle class is less taxed than the 50's, so are businesses. It is the predatory private sector administrative class, market speculators, and predatory capitalists that cause us pain. Willard is definitely an example of predatory capitalism. Obamas tarp investments lost 8%, willard and bain lost 22%. Do the math

Hey Sharky, A couple of questions for you. Can you define morally conservative and socially liberal for me? I'm just curious. From what do you base your morals on? Society? Government? The Ten Commandments? The Bible?

Hi nl Resident: The Bible, Tzelem elokim and Tikkun Olam, ALL Humans are made in the Image of God.

Tzelem Elokim=Humankind as Image of God

1: Has Intelligence

2: Has Freewill

3: Has component of Spiritual Being-A Soul

4: God rules the Universe and Spirit World, Humans have dominion over the Lower World.

5: Has the faculty of Judgement

6: Has an inherent Holiness and Dignity

As created in the image of God, humans are endowed with "three intrinsic dignities": infinite value, equality, and uniqueness.

The first means that human life cannot be weighed, measured, or compared in terms of, that is, subordinated to, any other value. Humans are always a goal or end in themselves and never a means to something else.

The second term implies that no person or group is privileged over another. In fact, Idolatry results when a person or group absolutizes itself or its message.

The third idea reinforces the dignity of every human by insisting that each person is irreplaceable and has a special role to play in the redemption of the world.

Though I do not approve of the homosexual lifestyle, I do not judge or condemn them. The USA, like Israel is a pluralistic Democratic Republic, not a Theocracy.

Myself, as a Gentile Nazarene; I adhere to the 10 commandments and the 7 Noahidic commands.

Jesus taught us that the needs of the people are Holy, and in His time, 1st Century Judea, 95% of the people were poor and oppressed due to the predatory exploitation of the Romans and the 5% of the Jewish elite. Unfair governance and dominance of resources by a few.

I am a centrist politically. Independent.

Be well

Kind Regards

my wife and I went to best buy for a new note book. a young guy waited on us about 24yrs old. Unbelievable computer knowledge.

Here is where the story gets good. He said he has a BA in Computer Science from Western University. He had a job in his field making great money, but the stress and pressure was to much. He would hope the day was over before he started. He took a substantial pay cut, but is happy now. best buy is much easier. I looked at my wife and rolled my eyes. See a problem with people like this voting????? This is a part of the reason obama was given a second term for further destruction. God Help Us!

As long as this guy does not now claim he is not making enough to afford a home, feed a family, have a phone, and ask for Government aid, I think he did the right thing for himself. Woos's need jobs too, but don't ask my tax dollars to suppliment you because of it. Good luck to him, is my opinion.
