    There is an interesting article written by a reasonably liberal political commentator that addresses the Republicans current situation and makes comparisons to the situations the Democrats were in after the 1988 election. I do agree with the cartoon as far as the Republicans being out of touch with much of the electorate today, but one shouldn’t forget that Obama is a superior politician. I am a Libertarian and disagree with both parties in many ways, but don’t count the Republicans out, they still carried close to half the country. Link to the article:

    I would love to see people toning down the rhetoric though, it’s poison to any constructive change.

    In my opinion the GOP has a deeper problem: they want to win. That’s all they want. They don’t want to learn, they don’t want to talk to people, they don’t want to govern, they just want to win. They pander to everyone but don’t change their positions based on changing demographics, so their pandering goes to waste. You can’t send out the candidates son to mutter a few words in Spanish and at the same time talk about self-deportation.

    -

    The GOP really believes they can pull the wool over the eyes of the whole nation, and people realize that and walk away from them. They are dishonest, driven only by their will to power, not by patriotism (all these flag-pins are just jewelry to them) or the urge to improve the lives of people and the nation as a whole. They think starting wars means “strength” and they think evading Roe v. Wade means “morality”.

    -

    They are deeply misguided in what people want or need and – crucially! – haven’t even hit rock-bottom (the TEA-party is trying to steer the GOP even more to the right). I thought this loss would have been their “coming to Jesus” moment – literally, they could need the Savior right now – but nooo, business as usual with the gay-bashing and the stupid, old, white man in control. They are pretty much doomed, and no Bobby Jindal or Marco Rubio can fix that…

    After 2016, Dems 2 best politicians will be out of office. They’ll need someone with the guts to continue Howard Dean’s 50-state strategy, or they could be quickly marginalized to the west coast and the northeast. Not sure the current group has it in them.

    Remove the log from your eye, then help us with the speck in ours.
    O won because he frightened women, bought votes with food stamps and he’s black.

    Better find a new grocery store to shop at, because the one you are currently using is only selling Sour Grapes!

    Well, I suppose one can hardly blame them. They pine for their homeland of Oldwhitemanistan- of the old white man, by the old white man, for the old white man, as God* intended. They’re just furious that America is no longer that nation.

    @Ms. Ima

    Just when I thought narrowminded’s post was the most ignorant on this particular thread, along comes Ima—-

    “Worthless people”…yep, you are a shining example of Christianity, you sad little person.

    “How to win friends and influence people”
    .
    Old book, good information on how not to be like Miss Ima.
    .
    You seem intelligent, probably married an intelligent man. But he treats you like an idiot, and uses short words and no thinking before he speaks. You copy.
    .
    It may be all you know but there is a world full of people that are not like that. Polite thoughtful people that enjoy company and think of what life offers.
    Look around, lurk and listen in public places to how other couples conduct themselves.
    It can be nice to be alive if you let it.

    The Confederates were Democrats before they seceded and after they were forced back.The northern democrats also opposed the 13th amendment.Go back and look at the Civil Rights act and see who voted for that,Not many Dems.

    Wow, this line of posts really shows how disconnected the Republicans remain, at least those posting here, like ima,dennis112, and narrowminded continue on their foolish, and stubborn losing themes. I tend to feel morty and mickey connected with some truth ,eh.

    Maybe just calculate the value of the property and let them pay an exit fee.
