Naw.

It was referring to 40+% as slackers and parasites that did it.

Gay issues were fractional when compared to that colossal gaff.

Republicans are just clueless. They cannot see the forest for the trees. If they continue to reach out and represent just old white men, they are destined to the ash-pit of history. Actually, at one time they had a good message, but today I see them as I see McCain, old, grumpy, and vindictive. I truly wish they would find themselves in their original philosophy. We need a strong opposition party to keep the country on balance. But so far, they ain't it.

What the GOPasaurs don't get is their anti-gay anti-abortion anti-women anti-hispanic messages turn off a LARGE portion of the electorate.

The rest of their "conservative" message on other issues never has a chance of getting through because people stop listening.

THAT is why they lost.

No, that wasn't it.
The base would not have voted for a liberal social issues candidate.
Any votes gained from independents would have been lost by conservatives that stayed home.
That woul have made no difference.
Romney lost because of the auto bailout comments. If he didn't write that piece, he would have had Ohio easily and could have been more aggressive in winning Colorado.
Then, it would have been likely for Romney to win and the Florida and Virginia base voters would have actually showed up.
