So all of you Republicans who wouldn’t vote for McCain because he was not conservative enough essentially voted for Obama. Look, we all felt the same way, but in elections sometimes it has to be the lesser of two evils. And NOT voting has consequences. Don’t let anyone ever convince you not to vote again.

Sometimes it’s darkest right before the dawn.
Better to expose the commies for what they are now, and let America decide in 2010 and 2012.

Whatever. That’s an excuse for the Republicans to serve us yet another Democrat-lite.

Sometimes? In my view, it's always. Probably 90% of the people voting Republican have major differences on major issues with the GOP candidate running. But they vote for him anyway - because the other guy is worse. It makes no sense letting Stalin get into power because the GOP guy disagrees with you on some issues. Half a loaf is better than none. (I happen to think McCain is a great guy personally, but disagree with him on everything from amnesty and torture to the bailout).

BS, you are advocating the same type of election they have in IRAN, one person on the ticket. I say again BS, I will never vote the lessor of two evils. You can take you forced voting and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Three demographics won Ohio for the Dim's:

ACORN/Blacks

Union Blue Collar

Yewts

And, to put the icing on the cake, the illegals and absentee fraud was accomodated by Janet Brunner (soon to be Governor Brunner)

I'll go you one better, don't let anyone convince you to vote for Liberal Lite just because he/she has an "R" after his or her name.

And this argument about not voting or voting for third party elects Democrats crap has got to stop.

Here's a novel idea, actually run Candidates people want to vote for rather than going with the RINO mantra of "vote for the lesser of two evils" so Democrats won't get elected.

I know its a radical concept but hey maybe its time for such.

The truth is this: McCain did not energize the base. His global warming, attacks on Bush, "calm down" comments put off people.

Enthusiasm is critical in presidential politics and independents and liberals were enthusiastic for Obama. That's all it takes to win: one side is enthusiastic, the other lackluster.

Go away. I voted for that puke, McCain, and am tired of being blamed afterwards because the GOP nominates candidates like that.

The Rinos blame us constantly and are ready to have us drink the poison again with Romney. And then he’ll get clobbered, they blame us again and come up with a new Rino.

It’s called insanity.
