    And THIS time, the chair really IS empty…
    Sorry, Repubs, but your core group of old, rich White Guys making a Million a year minimum is dying off, so if you can’t reinvent your entire party really soon, it is going to wither away to a minor political force in the country, right down there with the Green party, and the Libertarians.

    Isn’t that the same reason Ron Paul runs as a republican? He really seems more of a Libertarian.

    -
    Not so sure about that ms. While the groups are small, they still exist within the Republican party, expecially women. The Log Cabin Republicans have been fighting for recognition and acceptance for years. Maybe the core will start to recognize their need of these diverse groups. If they don’t, the party will either experience a revolution, or wither away.

    The old republican joke,
    “When you’re poor you tend to vote Democrat, as you increase your wealth you tend to change into a republican. But as you become more educated and grow more intelligent you evolve into a democrat. Just goes to show you too much of a good thing can be a bad thing”
    .
    Just goes to demonstrate the reDUMBlican contempt of education and intelligence. And it just proves your point, an ignorant populace is easier to confuse and control. And intelligent populace won’t buy their lies.

    The reason Obama’s chair was empty during Clint’s speech was that Obama was out talking to the real people.

    Actually it’s just the opposite. Howard Stern did a hilarious video where Obama supporters were interviewed and asked if they supported Obama’s position and Stern’s guy stated Obama’s position as pro life, anti stem cell and they all supported it.

    The less capacity your brain has the more likely you are to believe that there are more rich people to lift you up when the government takes it away from them, as opposed to YOU lifting someone less fortunate.

    For conservatives compassion begins with the heart, for liberals at gunpoint.

    Though for the record, I think this cartoon is spot on and should be pasted on every wall in every RNC building.

    The right has the rich white guy vote, the poor uneducated white guy vote, and the well trained wive vote of same. That’s it. They’ll continue to win those districts in congress, but they’ll continue to lose senate seats, and the white house. I sure hope they don’t change.

    “Begins at the heart?” “Gunpoint” is the very heart of conservatism! “Stand your ground”, Defend the Second Amendment", “Concealed weapons everywhere”…give us a break!

    @Omnius
    I wouldn’t call Romney/Ryan big losers. They definitely lost, but not as bad as Akin and Mourdock who were truly and colossally out of touch.
    I would call this election a minor schellacking for the Republicans.
    @Rickapolis
    We gotta be careful here. The Republicans might decide to ditch the Culture Wars which could sway the Republicans moderates. Although I’m not going to hold my breath. : )

    I don’t think that there are many republican moderates, the party faithful chased them all away. Tuesday showed the result of that, I think.

    Apikoros: The Greens did rather well, considering a total corporate media blackout and three arrests of our presidential candidate (twice for attempting to attend public meetings, and once for bringing food and water to peaceful demonstrators). We securely made the ballot for next time in anti-access Texas. You are right about Republicans fading away, but it won’t be too long before they and Greens meet each other going opposite directions. After all, someone needs to be the second party.

    @HOWGOZIT “The Republicans need to drop the ahrd line gay marriage, immigration, and abortion issues to gain some headway.”

    Yes, they ought to stop their grotesque vilification of other Americans and keep their Taliban hands off women.
