I think the results would have even been worse if we had Santorum or even Newt as our nominee. We need a conservative like Ronald Reagan. But I don’t know if such a person even exists anymore.
I will be out buying firearm and ammunition stocks this morning.
” Buy gold and buy guns.”
What if obama issues an executive order banning private ownership of gold? FDR did that in 1933 and it wasn’t repealed until 1974 by Gerald Ford.
I don't believe that's the problem. The problem is the inside the beltway Repubs keep choosing our candidates for us, and they're always Rinos. The majority has given up, because they have no one to vote FOR. People are tired of voting "against" just to get a simpler version of a democrat.
Who here actually wanted Romney? Most here didn't want him, and my guess is a lot of people sat it out because he was was just like all the others - another Rino.
That's the Republicans problem. Give us someone we can actually, fully support next time.
Give the majority a voice! Give us a candidate we can happily vote FOR.
When Rush started his radio program, people freaked. His bosses thought no one would listen to him. To peoples surprise, there was half a country crying out for someone who'd speak for them, and Rush became the best loved radio host in the country, because he spoke for that silent majority. For once, people actually got to hear Rush say what they've been thinking and feeling for generations.
Our country is becoming deeper and deeper divided. Especially geographically.
There is much truth in your article. The statement above is only partly true. There is a huge swath that love the big government, but a huge chunk of voters indicated sharing many of our beliefs of smaller government, too, but don't seem to be aware they are supporting the opposite. Many uninformed voters. They vote against their own preferred interests. They either like to be lied to or seem to only take one side's word to define their view. I see countless people online placing full blame on Republicans for obstructionism, and that is lie. Lot's of Americans are being bamboozled. Hopefully we don't face another flim-flam artist like Obama for awhile in elections.
Moderate Mitt really cleaned Ubama's clock last night right?
Welcome to Sandra Fluke’s America.
As I look at more data, I have to conclude you are wrong.
Obama fell 15 million votes short of his 2008 totals, but Romney also fell 6 million short of McCain’s totals. I would have guessed that Romney got more votes than McCain, but I would have guessed way wrong.
Here in Arizona, voters overwhelming rejected extending a sales tax increase that was passed a few years back as a temporary measure. It wasn’t close, either - 65/35 split. This time, the “children” lost! Finally!
And a measure to protect someone who shoots a crook passed 80/20.
I wasn’t pro-Romney. I was ABO. And apparently, regardless of what the GOP-E says, that isn’t enough. It was nice to see that Mitt truly loves America, and I’d have voted for him on that basis alone in the end, but that isn’t enough to fire up the republican vote.
It’s not because we’re not conservative enough.
We missed a huge opportunity to bring the Latino vote home during the Bush presidency. We were warned, and we ignored it.
President thanks illegals, moochers, Gov. Chris Christy, other stupid, ignorant and short sighted whites.
I would say tradeable commodities and guns and ammo. Gold will be useless in an economic meltdown. Can't eat it and can't shoot it.
My best years have been lived in a basically decent and "worthy" country.During my declining ones it looks like I'll have to learn Spanish,somehow learn how to become "disabled" and recognize that sodomy is "just another kind of love".And I'll have to learn how to wait six months to see a cancer specialist just like they do in Canada and Britain.
I just thank God that neither Osama Obama,Dirty Harry nor any of their pals will ever have to endure a similar kind of wait.
Enough of the defeatist attitude around here, what a bunch of pansies - we can survive the next 4 years.
Who would have done better than Romney?
The Tea Party Got It Right, Mitt Got It Wrong-
As long as we pander to a group of People SOLELY ON RACE, we will win.
We can do the welfare state too, except better and cheaper!
I thought we gave the Illegals amnesty back in '86. All that did was create more Democrat voters, we were warned and we ignored it.
