Romney is right. We need to pray for America because borrowing money from China and printing money will not last much longer. His message of working America was not good enough for half of the Americans who wants free check from Obama that will forced them to depend on Obama and therefore vote for him. Unfortunately for 310 million Americans, Romney promised jobs while Obama promised more free checks to almost everybody in the country regardless of anything. Obama found the democratic way to win the election by printing money day and night and spreading it to every American who desired to live easily under the Obama’s government when Romney offered the same parasites a job that they never demanded. However, the printing of money by Obama is limited and will cause the crashing of the American economy and America becoming the new Greece without money.

If the Republicans can't figure why Romney lost why were they less than enthusiastic about his nomination? The Republicans need to look with in and not pontificate 'well if another 2 percent had voted this way'.

Use the numbers and not just play with them.

Ever had a look at the 2012 budget?

You will see "welfare" only comprises 12% of the budget.

That 12% contains Unemployment insurance,which has been pretty dman important to a lot of Americans.

That is unless you are referring to the 22% we spend on the nations elderly (pensions).
Or The other 22% we spend on medicare again,for the nations elderly..

For the purposes of checks handed out..maybe we should look at the 27% we hand out to the military...

Damn. Still not getting it, huh?

Here's what you need to learn from Romney's defeat.

1.) Reality does, in fact, trump bullshyt every time.

2.) Science is real.

3.) The face of America is changing. The party needs to broaden its appeal to minorities and women.

4.) Keep your friggin' nose out of women's reproductive rights.

5.) Doubling down on BS does not...I repeat, DOES NOT improve your chances of winning an election.

6.) If your stated goal is to make a president fail and you go about achieving that goal by blocking every single piece of legislation he or his party puts on the table WITHOUT offering a reasonable compromise, it might just backfire in your face.

Hope that helps. See you in 2016. Bring a candidate next time. K?
