A special thank you to Noonan, Gerorge Will, Ron Paul, et al. Thank you fools! Thanks for putting us all in danger now from terrorists and the real suppression of conservatism. The Fairness doctrine is coming. Rampant oppression is coming. Taxes being raised is coming. Yes, the ship is now goign to be sinking for good. Obama, Reid and Pelosi will be controlling the direction of this country.

What do Ron Paul and George Will have to do with this? They’re more conservative than Juan McAmnesty is. Sorry to say. We nominated our weakest candidate. He had NOTHING to run on.

He also refused to discuss Obama’s doubletalk on NAFTA, his illegal immigration support, his infanticide, and his Reverend Wright/Farrakhan/Khalidi issues.

Don’t blame the Right for the RINO’s faults.

Next time try nominating a conservative who is not afraid to say the name “Ronald Reagan”. Then you won’t have this outcome.

I just talked to three separate friends in Ohio and they all did NOT vote because of Sarah Palin. The more I am reading, the more I am convinced is that Maverick got screwed over by this lady. While I was enamored by her looks, the more I really think about it... she was the weight that ended up bringing down the Straight Talk Express. Now I am really pissed. So don’t go blaming us centrists.

Psalm 121

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

McCain never called Obama out (in one debate!) on Obama's tax plan - He allowed Obama to cleverly / slyly not say that his tax plan was AFTER the GWB tax cuts expire....nor did McCain call him out for calling "welfare", tax-cuts!

That is what Obama did - He took what is really called welfare (giving people money they are now owed or entitled to) and simply called it at "tax-cut for 95% of people". McCain never called him out on this once...

When the GOP losses the tax debate.....you usually loses the race 9 out of 10 times.

The war that is now over within the GOP....is at least the RHINOs are out. They lost. Their hero RHINO just got his as$ handed to him by the most inexpericned, most liberal guy to ever run for POTUS.

McCain simply had to vote against the Bailout and he would have won tonight.

No matter how much he sucked on issues, all he had to do was Vote No.

Fools all of them, I could not agree more. But at the end of the day the biggest fool was McCain. Ironic, is it not? He did to his own campaign what he has been doing to the Republican party for years. He lost this campaign when he crossed the aisle during the Wall Street financial crisis and tried to be Mr. Bi-Partisan by suspending his campaign to go to Washington and do, what exactly? Instead, he should have been taking it to Frank, Dodd, and the dems as a whole for their role in the meltdown. He left Obama to place the blame on Republicans and by extension, one John McCain. Congrats buddy, this reaching across the aisle and drawing back a stump moment is for you.

America ia about to elect an Al Sharpton clone. The democRATS deserve to get what’s coming to them. I predict Obama will be far worse than Jimmy Carter. I also predict that Israel will attack Iran by the end of this year. Obama will be tested all right. We have not seen anything yet.

You’re welcome.

If one is going to vote for a liberal (amnesty, global warming, socialist bailout bills, etc.) why not vote for a real liberal? That’s probably what most of the moderate ‘middle’ was thinking to themselves.

If McCain would have at least came out against the bailout, I think he could have done much better.

Palin is a lightweight, and probably a net loss. I think picking her was a big mistake by McCain, as it nullified the experience argument against Obama and called McCain’s judgment into question. Same concept as before, where people probably asked themselves, ‘well, if this amateur hockey mom Palin could be president, why not Obama?’. I can’t believe anyone thinks she has a chance in 2012. She’s not presidential-level material, period.

Wishing suffering on people? How kind.

Yeah, it had nothing to do with the voters who voted for Obama rather than McCain. </sarc>

Maybe if you'd spent more time making the case for your candidate instead of bashing others, it would have helped?

And maybe if your candidate had taken more care to be conservative, or run a more intelligent campaign, or fight to prevent immigration, or whatever, he wouldn't have had such a hard time?

If you truly believe in conservatism, then perhaps it's time for you to abandon the path that lost, and join in the fight against big government and socialism, Nanny-Statism, Open Borders, etc. Or are you going to conduct yourself in the way that you complained about in others?

McCain has screwed the base for years.

He should have had the class to skip this run. Was he so vain that he could not see this result? That is handing over the White House to a socialist.

Absolutely terrible candidate.

Hold that thought. Win, lose or draw tonight, we need to develop a more talented, deeper and reliable bench of thinkers and the chattering classes. The crew that normally presents Republican views and defends conservative ideas sold themselves. As far as I can tell, they did that because Obama was more one of them than McCain — they certainly did not present any persuasive arguments but they did take a lot of personal potshots when cozying up to the One.

They better enjoy it while it lasts. McCain learned the hard way that his “friends” in the press liked him as long as he was bashing Bush; those same folks turned on him with a vengeance when he took on the One. Likewise, these talking heads will learn that the first time they are less than laudatory about the One, their new friends will turn on them too, and their old frinds will be gone. C’est la vie.

We were just outnumbered, IMO. McCain ran a solid campaign, and with his pick of Palin united the base.

There's no need to cry FReepers. Just stock up on ammo and work under the table for the next 4 years.

Yes, and when Sen. McCain "got tough," he should have focused less on "Ayers" directly, and more on the "pattern of deceit and secrecy" (or whatever good catchy phrase you want to call it). People didn't care about "Ayers," per se, but when I listed the time-after-time that he hid things (BC vault copy) or threw associates under the bus, it began to sink in.

The CONSERVATIVES, outside of the DC cocktail circuit lined up against Hussein in a big way.

Direct your anger elsewhere, where it belongs.

PS: Go piss up a rope. It wasn’t an issue of “teaching them a lesson, or people staying home” this time. We are seeing the result of a two year national propaganda campaign on the part of the media. McCain also didn’t run the most aggressive, coherent campaign we have seen.

Let’s not forget that Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family and Lou Engle the charismatic lunatic and false teacher, called for Romney over McCain.

Dobson especially. A Christian called for a Mormon over McCain?

I am ashamed of all of the cr*p Christians pulled on our country this year. Engle is a nut, too, who castigates the unsaved for their sins instead of beating his own chest in intercession. Spiritual poseurs who confused the flock and got our eyes off the political landscape...

There won’t be re-education camps and there won’t be suspended elections. Those are paranoid delusions. The changes will be far more subtle and fundimental. Hang on, it’s going to be a ride.

Much blame must go to the main stream media. How many Obama voters ever read a George Will column or even know who Peggy Noonan is? It is payback time for the MSM. Unfortunately, I cancelled my New York Times subscription 12 years ago. Tomorrow I am cancelling the subscription to my local newspaper, which endorsed Obama.

There are pros and cons about Gov. Palin. The energizing of the conservative base was necessary, but at the same time, they let themselves be hammered by the way they mismanaged her campaigning.

I think many here will not like to face the very real fact that a more conservative ticket would have turned many people off. Noonan was right when she said that the GOP can no longer just take it for granted that their platform is the belief system of the electorate...the electorate I saw at the polls today was more like a "handout, entitlement" electorate. Blaming the messenger won't help...we have to change the electorate's worldview.

First of all, your friends are morons. Secondly, for every one person you can say didn't vote for McCain because of Palin, I can give you at least ten who DID vote for McCain BECAUSE of Palin. If it were for Sarah, this would have been a huge landslide for Obama.

You've been spewing the blame Sarah crap all over FR tonight saying Romney or Ridge would have been better. If you really believe that, then you are not a centrist. You are a democrat and probably should be here on FR. At least the PUMAs have more sense than you and your friends.

The election is over. The "American Dream" is now dead. The marxist Barack Hussein Obama and the Democratic congress will now punish the successful people of this country and drag us all into the misery of the dregs of society. Everyone is now encouraged to contact their local govt office and demand "Where is mine?".

The 2010 and 2012 election starts NOW!!!!!!!! I expect every freeper chapter to take turns protesting in front of the White House immediately.

Quit blaming the press and others for this defeat. Place the blame firmly where it belongs on the McCain campaign and the RNC. This was one of the worst run campaigns I can remember and the RNC did little to nothing to help McCain because of their displeasure/hatred of McCain.

Wills, Noonan, etc. and many here on FR tried to point this fact out and we were told to shut up if we won't get in line with the "party".

The Republican party needs to return to its base ideology and run candidates that support that ideology if they are going to have any chance in 2012. Obama is a snake oil salesman that should have been a walk over for the Republicans, but instead of supporting core conservative values McCain and company pandered to the issue of the moment and let the snake oil salesman out juke them at every turn. Republicans got exactly what they deserved in this election. Ronald Reagan would be ashamed of what the party has become.AWB
