2012 Election Results: After Losing Badly, the GOP Must Do 9 Things to Avoid Becoming Extinct
1. Obama was vulnerable: if voters could be assured that his opponent would not initiate a similar political fiasco as we have witnessed during the past four years. Romney was not able to do so. Voters stayed with the incumbent. The importance of Obama’s victory in the face of adversity should not be understated. Remember economic conditions did not improve under Obama, gasoline prices are a multiple of what they were when the president began his first term, poverty is much greater as measured by food stamps usage, and unemployment has remained at unprecedented levels.
You're as out of touch as moron Mittens and the rest of the Republican whackos.

Not only was Obama strong in states with the highest percentage of college graduates, he was also strong in states with the highest average household incomes. For example, the five states with the HIGHEST average household incomes (which, not coincidentally, were also among the states with the highest percentage of college graduates).
Maryland $67,469
New Hampshire $67,287
Connecticut $67,165
New Jersey $65,072
Massachusetts $62,809
Virginia $62,776

Unemployment has been in DECLINE since the end of 2009. http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/U...

Irrelevant and obtuse reply.

This was a article in the Wall Street Journal, take up your argument with Bret Stephens.

Bret Stephens wrote this op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal titled “Earth to GOP: Get a Grip.” Stephens is one of a long list of critics who is suggesting that Republicans must make changes to remain relevant in American politics.

He stated in an earlier essay that the GOP has lost its way by kowtowing to the most radical elements in its ranks. It is particularly disturbing that this group made it impossible for Mitt Romney to unseat a very beatable incumbent.

My take on elections?

Romney is not conservative. At least not a constitutional conservative. The guy is a globalist who looks out for his own interest and his own pockets. Just like Obama.
This is why Romney got his ass kicked. 14M less people showed up to vote. I would argue that is due to the lack of difference between the 2 morons.
We'll find out in 2016, because I have no doubt the GOP is going as far right as possible.

Republicans?? workers??? When did that change. Why would workers vote themselves out of a job? Why would workers vote to eliminate all their benefits for working?

Name one republican who actually works.

Regenerate is more like it. The establishment has ruined the party with mediocrity and moderates. America needs a clear choice between conservatism and communism.
So you think more conservative extremism is in order? They couldn't win with moderate conservatives, how do you propose they'll win with more extreme ones? Think about that. The jig is up. America has seen the results of conservative economic policy and we are still feeling the effects and wrestling with the policies that still linger (like the tax cuts). Fully conservative policy inevitably results in a greater economic divide. The policy I theorize to be most responsible for America's sudden decline is the free trade agreement; which was signed by Clinton (a fairly economically conservative democrat) and DESIGNED by a conservative congress.

After you google "Ninthman Knuckedragger".

Van Jones, by the way, is a decent, caring, and remarkably intelligent man, all of which qualities elude you.

Reading this article, one notes that the Republicans might soon fade away into irrelevancy. They will not do so if they get rid of the radicals in their ranks, but at this time the issue is in doubt.

They lost me years ago when their primary focus was gay marriage and war instead of helping the needy and the poor.

Still lots of lies left, eh, BlueBalls?

Gosh, do you remember when the GOP was insisting they would take the Senate?

HAHAHAHAHAH

PS: The Democrats gained two seats. Plus there are two independent seats that will caucus with the Dems.

And you lost more seats in the House.

Putting aside that the Democrats running for House got more votes then the Republicans.

How'd the presidential election turn out for you, Shug?

The republicans? What should they do? Simple, the strength of the dems is the control of the main-stream media.

Seek free speech rights for the persecuted Christians, the middle-class, working families and then de-program the low IQ Obama voters.

As Ron Paul said:“The internet will provide the alternative to the government media complex that controls the news and most political propaganda,” Paul stated.“This is why it’s essential that the Internet remains free of government regulation.”

Once the "Government Media Complex" loses its control over the masses, the best party will win elections.

Sad this will not come as a surprise or shock to most
Americans of sound mind...

(A) Clapper lies under oath to congress re the editing
of the Intel reports re Benghazi?

(B) As the temperature rises,and in a concentrated and
Orchestrated scheme,Clapper now Confesses he did indeed Edit the reports to give a cover to the POTUS
and adhere to the Narrative of no Terrorist Attacks
took place at Benghazi?

(C) He further admits he was responsible for feeding
Susan Rice the Bull Sh*t Faked story re the Video
Tape,and Protesters being the cause of the Attack?

(D) Rice the Shill for Obama was deliberately used
to promote the lies on five different Left wing
Media outlets who lapped it all up.

(E) As a consequence for her actions Obama tries
to reward her by way of Promotion to Secy of State?
All in all,Typical low class efforts,by low class
Civil Servants to win the Election,Cover the Ones
Butt,and to hell with the truth,and the American
Public at large...Disgusting Filthy Politics that
seems to be common place today in our WH!! Four
more years?

I studied various news reports to piece this BS
together..So Google away and do your very best to
confirm all of the above!!

Sadly Joe, there's a huge chunk of the working population in America that does all of the above. I don't get it... but it's true. I think it has something to do with the "social" side of conservatism... the religion and all that.
