    With 49.6% of the population voting against Obama, I don’t think the executives within the DNC are thinking “America’s changing demographics are undeniable”. If they are they should be replaced. Too many organizations and companies have failed over becoming complacent. You can bet that the RNC execs are not sitting around saying “Oh, woe is me” and doing nothing.

    The changes ARE undeniable, but that doesn’t mean these new majorities are going to vote Democratic (I believe that was your point). There are, however, the things that GOP has done to disenfranchise minorities and the young (Voter-ID) as well as things they tried to control woman with (abortion legislation, ordinances, petty regulations to overturn Roe v. Wade through the back door). These things can be used for the next four to eight years to maintain political power for the Democrats. Also the GOP tends to be very stubborn. We are now reading all kinds of excuses and conspiracy theories about why the election was lost. They don’t get that it is their policies, their stances, that are incompatible with modern America. As long as they keep up this attitude the Democrats can only gain more political power.

    Too bad the Tea Party was ignored and set aside in the selection process for a candidate. A wealthy white establishment Republican was apparently a bad choice, though the press seemed to love it above all others, oddly. I recall many opinions that only Romney could win, so Santorum, Bachman and others were non-starters. Maybe asking Obama supporters who the best candidate would be was a bad strategy,.

    But of course, you will recall that the lizard himself, Newt (Mr. Infidelity himself) Gingrich said that Romney was the WORST possible candidate the Republicans could run!
    Amazing, but Newt FINALLY got one thing correct!

    A journalist recently said Republicans were going from being a hard line party of exclusion to be a condescending party of inclusion. Many of the suggestions by folks like Jindel and Cathy McMorris Rogers, are insulting to republican hardliners but seen as condescending by liberals.
    Mr. Bors cartoon will appeal strongly to liberals but fails to recognize the many moderate conservatives who feel at odds with their own party but cannot stomach the more "extreme’ goals of liberals.
    The democrats are best poised to take advantage of independent and moderate Repub feelings, but I fear the renomination of Nancy Pelosi as minority leader indicates a party not ready to set aside “impossible” issues in favor of bipartisan teamwork to solve our nations problems.
    I hope Ms. Pelosi will be less belligerent over the next two years or the Republicans will stick to their hard lines in a reasonable hope party faithful will be outraged by Democrat arrogance and failure to pursue goals sought by both sides of the aisle.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    What could be a better way to control an unwanted pregnancy than to not have sex with disgusting Republican cavemen?

    Bachmann barely retained the House seat, and this is after the district was re-drawn to make it more Republican. Santorum? Most people do not want a theocracy.
    Other Tea Partiers also did not do well, e.g. Mourdock beat moderate Lugar in the primary and then lost the general election.
    The Tea Party caused the credit rating to be dropped (check S&P website if you doubt this).

    I read this morning that Romney says he lost because Obama gave stuff to minority groups. Gosh, that guy is a bad loser. And we can see that he really does believe that 47% nonsense. He lost for a couple of reasons. First, his policies didn’t attract enough voters, and second, because the Democrats ran a really efficient campaign. If the Republicans can’t run a good campaign, they shouldn’t be in charge of running the country.

    A more Tea Party candidate? Really? Remember that Akin, Mourdock, and their big-government-conservative brethren did even worse than Romney, losing states that Romney won. Sure, put them up for president if you really want to to test the American patience with ignorance. But it’s been proved already, if you’re willing to start looking at factual evidence.

    Ohio state Senator Nina Turner has a T shirt that says GOP stands for Get Out of my Panties.
    Ohio is going to pass another unconstitutional abortion bill.
    Jobs jobs jobs, right.

    The fact that I was a crappy candidate doesn’t mean Santorum and Bachmann would have done better. They were too extreme for the GOP…. bigotry and homophobia are no longer election winning ideals.

    That’s right! This country is turning into a nation of moochers who think they should be able to afford health care and have control over planning their families. Giving college students a little financial help is the dumbest idea ever. Let them sell a few stocks to pay for tuition, like I did.
