Oh B.S.! No Rinos, NO DEFEAT! The reason why Repubs lost is exactly because of the rino factor. kowtowing to DBM/dems, putting factions together to defeat conservative ideas. All rinos need to be squarely defeated or move to the ass party and repubs need to either condone a conservative agenda and IMPLEMENT it, or stay in the minority.

Exactly -- dorks like McCain were a big part of it all. The Repubs abandoned conservatism and that is why they lost. The Repubs win, when they act like the conservatives they once were --- they lose when they don't. That is why the stinking libs are acting like conservatives now, because they know America is basically not a socialist/leftist country and the voting base is basically conservative.
The Repubs need a major overhaul and a return to core conservative values and issues. Then we will be back in control, and we had better win in 2008.

No, the reason republicans lost was because it's quite difficult to pretend to be either a republican or a conservative when you spend taxpayer money like drunken sailors.
Republicans lost because the images of our fellow citizens drowning in sewage while all levels of government failed them are too powerful to forget.
Republicans lost because they have embroiled the country in a war which they apparently are quite content to NOT fight, and to not fight it by the Marquess of Queensbury rules of engagement that brought us the disaster of Vietnam (complete with some of the same cast of characters partly responsible for that deabcle, i.e. Rumsfeld).
Republicans lost because "vote for me or the Terrorists will get you" wears thin on the public when it's repeated 700 times a day for five straight years, wothout anything else of import to break the monotony.
Republican slost because while the economy has "created 5 million new jobs", the majority of those new jobs are at Wal-Mart, Kinney Shoes and Burger King. Those jobs that aren't entry-level-minimum-wage-types are the sort in which a BA and an internship just won't cut it anymore. Taxes may be lower, but wages are falling. Wall Street may be up, but the spectre of massive numbers of foreclosures in on the horizon. Economically, the republicans themselves have done little to protect the American worker, and everything to protect the CEO and the ol' campaign coffer.
Republicans lost because even with a veto-proof majority they caved oin entitlement reform and saddled us with another $100 billion boondoggle that will ensure the Flower Children won't have to pay for the medication to soothe their Chronic Dry Eye, embarssing genital herpes outbreaks or soothe their enlarged prostates later in life. This, incidentally, will be the SINGLE RICHEST GENERATION OF RETIREES IN HUMAN HISTORY.
Republicans lost because those who consider themselves "Conservatives", with all that implies, acted exactly like democrats; free-spending, scandalous, arrogant, larcenous, out-of-touch, and believing the peasants will shut up and take it all from them simply because "the alternative is worse".
There, I hope this helps straighten you out.
Good for you1 I almost thought I was reading the Democrat Uderground or Move On. I sincerely wonder what some people are thinking?
