You know what? We lost the Presidency by 1% and the Senate by a little more. Allen West and Mia Love lost, but I'm not going to be part of the "blame Mitt" crowd that two days ago thought he was great. And if you couldn't vote for the "moderate Mormon" then pat yourself on the back-- you didn't vote for the loser. But you helped the communist thug to stay in charge and run wild.
With that said, we need to stop blaming each other and separating our party and unite against the true villains-- a viscous, lying Chicago thug machine that painted it's opponent as a killer of women who cares about no one, we need to tell Bill Clinton to shut the hell up and WE should have called him out when he was Obozo's outreach to the women's vote. Of course he's all for free birth control, the rapist! We need to blame the media-- how can you win with 24/7 news coverage painting your candidates as psychos? When your opponent promises most of the electorate free stuff? It's time to get up, dust ourselves off, and fight back. Reach out to legal Latinos and blacks and show them what real conservatism is-- they have no idea, they've been fed lies their whole life. Organize our youth -- there are many proud, smart, young conservatives out there. We need to rebuild a conservative movement, but not at the cost of picking each other off one by one. We'll just lose by more next time.
Well, the way to get the black and Hispanic vote is to give freebies.
The flaw of democracy is that people learn to vote for the person who will give them the most goodie
They will turn America into Latin America or Africa even though they don’t want to live in those places.
Yeah, Mitt was not a pure conservative. But we let the Democrats and media paint him as the most radical right wing nut job woman hating candidate ever to walk the face of the earth. And they told everyone that this is what a conservative Republican looks like. This was one of my points— we can’t let our opponents and the media define us, which they did.
Blacks won’t vote for conservative Blacks. How could Allan West and Mia Love lose? So in those cases, blacks and latinls had no problem voting for a white guy, against a black man and a blank women because they were conservative.
I have yet to read a coherent explanation.
The MSM is a bunch of lying reptiles, so you need to ignore them.
Listen. Read. Learn.
and be patient—we will figure out what happened here.
Bump! Just a damn big ol’ bump to that.
I remember you hoss
You argued with me and travis mcgee not long ago that the rise in latino population was not responsible for California going Democrat after the 80s
you live in dreamland
you can race bait me all you want..I could give a damn tonight of all nights
it is precisely all about race
97 percent of blacks
72% of latinos..and I will bet you that 28% is mostly White Cubans and South Americans of means
Orientals...73%...it ain't cause they need entitlements is it...even they like being anti white victims
You ain't focusing on race enough unless you gonna offer some silly race pick for 2016
I will bet you right now GOP moves left, embraces amnesty and looks for big brown hope
is that the future you want?
that is why let them come in to take over
No one has been able to define Mitt Romney, he is a pathological liar. Mitt truly has almost no known positions that have not been TOTALLY REVERSED at some point during his presidential run.
The only ones that I know of that he has remained loyal to are the homosexualizing of the military and of the Boy Scouts.
I doubt that anyone on this thread (except me), knows Mitt’s current position on abortion and the party platform on abortion.
Just as in Ancient Rome, the upper classes destroy their society by importing cheap labor. Massachusetts was once Puritan — but they let in the Irish to do the shitwork. Now it’s the country club Republicans who want more Mexicans to work in their sweatshops. Of course need I mention what has happened to the South. A region FWIW that no longer includes DC West, aka Virginia. Future generations will marvel at the irony that it was once the capital of the Confederacy, as we are surprised that Boston was once full of Pilgrims.
There’s a scene in Spartacus where Crassus and Caesar discuss how to stop the rebellion. Caesar talks about working with the people — “the mob” — and says it’s the only way to save Rome. “Yes” says Crassus, “But which Rome — theirs or ours?”
After 40 years of indoctrination via academe and media, the old American values cannot win anymore, not with those under 40, who were raised on MTV. FR is full of suggestions that the Republicans should change their stances on illegal aliens, abortion, homo marriage, drugs, etc.... This is like saying abolitionists would be a lot more popular if they just changed their policy on slavery.
I don’t see any going back. Now you know how Scarlett O’Hara felt. Or all those matrons in the New Yorker cartoon who got dressed up to go down and hiss FDR. This is now a different America. I’m just not going to worry about it anymore.
It is time for us to go undercover.
It worked for the Dems.
People around here need to start getting used to the idea of a fiscal conservative Hispanic presidential candidate who then “suddenly” becomes pro life after he is elected.
We have two years to get the Senate back.
There is a growing Hispanic population, but in CA the bulk of the damage is done by the government union employees who donate hundreds of millions if not billions to get Democrats and their causes elected.
We also have 10% of the population and 30% of the welfare.
Whites are as crazy as anyone else here in CA I am sad to say. The stupid isn’t limited to any race out here.
Is your post a script and a paid for message from Tea Party Express? or The Blaze?
Enough of the movement/re-building crap.
The GOP doesn’t want us. They don’t want Conservatives and they don’t want The Tea Party.
Other than Ted Cruz...they all got tossed tonight. Scott Brown, Allen West, Michelle Bachmann, Mia Love, Todd Aiken etc....all of them...GONE.
And IMO Hispanics do tend to vote Democrat because they are mostly poor and go for the social programs.
If they were paying the taxes for this, I doubt they would be for Democrats.
And disregarding them in the next election will help how? Your chosen candidates will lose by even more?
They got on Dem buses to the polls.
Nothing has changed.
We have great ideas, but we’re really crappy at winning elections.
“...they all got tossed tonight. Scott Brown, Allen West, Michelle Bachmann, Mia Love, Todd Aiken etc....all of them...GONE.”
Now you know what Obama was talking about when he said to go out and vote for REVENGE!!
You nailed it btw.
We don’t win with these voters because they expect to be handed things from government.
It is hard to compete agaisnt the give-away of the Treasury.
Shut up. You got want you wanted — a Mormon defeated.
Tell everyone about our next SCOTUS justice confirmed overwhelmingly by the Senate:
Your choice has damaged us terribly and reelected Obama while also hurting us down ticket, and cost us the Supreme Court.
Interesting that you mention Mormonism as part of his shortcomings and a reason for his failure against the Jimmy Carter rerun.
We lost because of social issue fear among women, and people in our own party more scared of a Mormon president than Obama.
All we had to was show up and get out the vote.
I will tell you this right now: my generation is sick of catering to people who refuse to show up for two Presidential elections. Now the GOP is forced to expand with new blood to make up for these losses, and I guarantee people around here aren’t going to like that methodology.
No you idiot.
YOU got us Obama. YOU with your “I refuse to vote or campaign for a Mormon” bull. YOU who encouraged a split party to stay home. YOU!
We’re a bunch of bigots thanks to your ilk.
You keep going on about Mormonism on this election night, are you a Mormon?
You know I’m not. Go back to your cave.
I don’t know anything about you, I have no idea who you are.
Trying to decide between two options:
1) Get in the front lines of your revolution, so I get killed earlier and don’t have to suffer through all 4 years plus, or
2) Get in line for the Obama freebies I can get
Hmmmm, which to choose????
Why are you still he? Shouldn’t you be out celebrating your tax increases?
Sounds like you need a hug from daddy. Shouldn’t you focus more on political posts rather than emoting and pouring your heart out to me?
I truly believed this was our last chance and we lost. So, now prepare for a lot of gayness and lots more spending.
“massive fraud....organized massive fraud on many levels...that is the explanation because I truly believe this was Mitts win...”
I agree completely. There were articles about buses going from one polling place to another, about poll watchers forcibly ejected from polling places, about voting machines that voted Obama no matter what choice you picked, and there are probably many more examples of fraud to be found. I believe that if we were more diligent about monitoring and reporting the election process, we could expose the Chicago-style political machinations that keep allowing the bad guys to win.
I find it very difficult to believe that the Obamaphone lady is a stronger incentive to vote than Benghazigate. It’s too much of a temptation to accuse the winning side of being made up of idiots. The left used that excuse when George Bush won both elections, and I refuse to use it for this one. Something stinks to high heaven here, and we need to develop procedures and techniques to ensure that we’re not defeated by voter fraud ever again.
Mitt had a hundred chances to body slam the commie thug,
Leftists like Mutt only do that to conservatives.
“We lost the Presidency by 1% and the Senate by a little more.”
The sad fact of the matter is; if we could filter out all the multiple votes, the unknowingly stolen votes and the illegal votes we’d find we actually won by 5% or more.
They knew what the stakes were. If they sat out the game and didn't participate, some of this is also on them.
It will also take another Party, the GOP, as a national Party, is finished.
Mittens couldn’t or wouldn’t take off the gloves and fight.
He could have set Obama back on his heels defending his Benghazi disaster, and totally reset the terms of the MSM debate.
But he decided to be “Moderate Mitt,” the squish.
And it will only get worse. In four years, the demographics will be even worse, with 10-15 million more formerly illegal aliens voting EBT-Rat for life.
