The kick-all-the-Mexicns-out crowd and serpents like Akin and Murdouch cost us the election. No doubt in my mind.
just for the stupid women of which I am not one!!!
You might say that the GOP got Fluked. Perhaps the voting vaginas bought into the “War on Women” thing.
yup, can’t wait to hear some of my Obama-loving relatives bellowing when their taxes hit the roof, prices go so damn high their heads will spin, gas, electricity, and when they either have to pay for their own piece of Obamacare and/or get dropped altogether from their coverage by their jobs..they don’t have a clue what is coming by 2014 with that alone. Many are one issue voters, no idea of the big picture.
Some people say that one should have a republic, rather than a democracy. What this means, is that citizenship rights are for all, but voting rights are for those who own property, or meet other requirements. Otherwise, people who have no assets, will constantly vote themselves more entitlements.
That sounds wild, but in fact is in keeping with history. Many countries have been destroyed by feeding their underclass.
Not quite. You are double counting, non-mutually exclusive categories.
I agree, Susan... I’m not sorry either.
These stats do not reflect the huge number in Blue states that never ever marry at all, therefore never get divorced either.
May want to check this post out because it reinforces what I originally posted about republicans and single moms, i.e. there are more of them in your states.
I sense no desperation from them in needing to find a marriage partner, at least if they are under 30
Men, on the other hand, tend to get more desirable as they mature and become more successful. For men, the peak age is probably 38-42. Before the age of 25, women tend to have the upper hand in relationships. After the age of 30, men call the shots.
When I was in college (last 70s, early 80s), there were a lot of women who were actively trying to bag a husband before they graduated. In fact, I think many went to college just to get their MRS degree. But I don’t think that’s as prevalent anymore.
But, hey, maybe CA is so different, that that has changed too.
Posting like that will bring the women back to the GOP in no time.
So you'd postpone the Presidential inauguration until March (by repealing the 20th amendment), allow President Obama to serve unlimited terms (by repealing the 22nd amendment), require poll taxes to vote (by repealing the 24th amendment), keep the office of Vice President vacant if the Vice President becomes President (by repealing the 25th amendment), and allow Congress to raise their own salary at any time (by repealing the 27th amendment)?
Stupidest post of the day on FR.
I thought Romney didn't even bring up the subject.
I never said it would. What we want is quite often at odds with what we need.
I happen to like voting. I dont like people who want to disenfranchise me or anybody else. Vs wife.
Thanks for your input.
Stupidest post of the day on FR.
Of course it is, because we all know there's no possibility that you failed to think it through completely. Not to mention that the Founders and most members of Congress before the 20th Century were just not very bright.
As I said yesterday before any results were in Morris is a dishonest rodent who I cant even listen to. His voice is annoying and the stuff he says usually makes little sense to me, and he says it with confidence.
Wasn't he a Democrat dissed by Clinton now a favorite on Hannity?
Frank Luntz is on Hannity now and is trying to explain what happened. He is pointing out how O ran the most negative vicious campaign this time in recent history and that got him that 4% in the swing states. They didn't vote for Obama they voted against Romney(and as I said it was two rich looking White guys which was a crappy plan to beat Obama).
He is also said that those voters believe much more that O cares for them more than Romney does thanks to that negative campaign and they vote their feelings.
“The numbers that Bill Bennett had on his show this morning were that Obama got 74% of the Asian vote and 69% of the Hispanic vote. That is an enormous problem for the GOP in the future. Demographics is destiny...”
And near the top of the ‘rat priority list will be the legalization of the illegals as soon as possible.
Did you also see the news today that Harry Reid has already announced that he intends to “limit” the filibuster power in the Senate? Didn’t take them very long to jump on that one, eh?
If that's really where we are as a nation, then it's probably best that we let it fail. It won't be easy or fun but, we'll come out much, much better for the experience.
Amazing thing is as a kid he spent his summers in Ocean City, NJ.
“For those of you who are calling for a collapse of the current system and then rebuild a better one, history is not on your side.”
The “current system” is headed for a collapse regardless of what we try to do to stop it. It’s going to go down, anyway.
Might as well start planning for the “rebuilding” now.
History may or may not be on our side. But there really won’t be a choice in the matter...
Luntz has essentially been a pet peeve of mine for years.
I think your comments on Morris are quite accurate too.
I’m not on board the rich white guy model, because I don’t buy into race/class/gender politics.
If a policy is a sound one, it will connect with people across demographics. If it’s not, it won’t.
A great policy, cannot always be expected to win. You keep delivering the message until the obvious nature of it becomes too obvious to ignore.
Yep, that means you’re going to lose some elections. Eventually folks come around, and you’re the sage. So far folks are buying the Leftist mantra. Good luck for the Left, when folks see see that mantra for what it is. And they will.
“When Romney stated that there was no sense in working to get the vote of the 47% he was exactly right.”
He may have been exactly right about the problem, but he seems to have been a bit off on the numbers.
Instead of 47%, it looks like it’s closer to 49 or 50 percent.
With 47%, he (and we) had a chance.
At 50%, neither of us do.
“Delay is the only game the GOP has in the Senate right now.”
Not if Harry Reid gets his way:
“I got slated...” By idiots.
Ryan is a good man, but Rubio could have helped with the EC, like you stated.
OTOH, f*ck it...I don’t care anymore.
The Where was the war on women before the contraception mandate on religious organizations became an issue? It did not exist. It was created out of whole cloth.
The Catholic Bishops originally endorsed ObamaCare. They only turned against it when Obama forced the contraception mandate onto Catholic charities and Catholic schools. Why did Obama, after giving out over 1,000 waivers to ObamaCare, not give in on this one issue, and ensure the support of the Catholic Church?
“Women’s rights”, throughout the 1970s and 1980s was about equal pay for equal work. It was the reason behind the Equal Rights Amendment.
Unfortunately, somehow the Democrats have succeeded in convincing 57% of women “Women’s Rights” equals “Reproductive Rights”. At the same time, the Democrats succeeded in convincing the same audience a desire to allow religious organizations flexibility in their insurance programs was equal to banning contraception and forcing women to be barefoot and pregnant. Why?
I think I know the answer. The hard left hates the Catholic Church. They think is is an archaic institution ruled by old white guys. They had to punish it, but do it in a way so as to hide what you are doing. Enter Georgetown Law and Sandra Fluke.
Instead of an honest debate on if a religious institution should have flexibility in the insurance it provides (which most of the public would support), it was reframed as “Republicans want to take away your contraception.”
Look at the exit polls demographics. Look at how O got them to come out and vote again to save him with things so crappy for them under him.
Understanding is better than just beating your head saying “If cant be true, it just doesn't make sense”. Otherwise every 4 years can be like the last two.
Romney wasn't just appearing as a rich white male but also a very robotic one while O played the compassion card to all those different groups.
“I care about you unlike the other guy who only cares about rich guys like himself”
He was a gift to O. And ironically he was a liberal too.
Ted Cruz is on Cavuto (TX) is on Cavuto and he won that Senate seat with lots of Hispanic voters help.
He told Cavuto that Republicans need to try to communicate with Hispanics.
I must admit he looks like a great Palin pick in the R primary. We will see.
George Soros net worth in 2008....9 billion.
2012 19 billion
” He told Cavuto that Republicans need to try to communicate with Hispanics.”
Just exactly how ?
You are saying he is the NEXT D candidate? That would be great.
Does the Government grant rights, in your view; such that they can be rescinded?
Tell them you see that things are bad for them under O and that he is just using them. Tell them how your policies will make their lives better. He said to talk jobs and the economy.
Cruz is Hispanic.
Interesting how his net worth more than doubled in 4 horrible years of recession, eh ?
Actually I think there is truth to that. I have long figured it won’t wake up people until there’s a true crisis: another 911, economic collapse. White libs think they can just keep moving away from their fellow constituencies, curl up in the conservative suburban womb. But sooner rather than later, it hits the fan. The voter demographics say much from yesterday. It is the PC Crowd vs the rest of us. They won this round but eventually TSHTF, and they start fighting amongst themselves.
So, did the Chic-Fil-A crowd stay home?
I didn't. I thought I saw the CFA turn out at my poll location and in numerous conservative postings/pics. Hmm.
That could be the main reason. But did they ask open ended questions in the exit polls, or give respondents a list of reasons to choose from?
It's possible that "O cares for me" really means that I heard my favorite group's name in Obama's list "Women, gays, blacks, hispanics, ..." And maybe the best remedy (whatever that is) for GOP or conservatives is the same for both "He cares" and "He likes my group."
Is this a point about how the rich did good under O, or a more specific point about George? Where does Soros live?
Obama would say to blacks, hispanics, wimmin : “See that is exactly my point. The Rich have made out great due to GOP policies while you have have suffered. That is why I oppose another tax cut for the wealthy”
And the 2010 senate minority Rs made it possible by winning on extending those tax cuts for two years till AFTER Os re-election.
Now if those rates went up right away end of 2010 then R+R could have said “See what raising taxes gets you?” If they go up now anyway the GOP in the congress will get the stupid prize.
It’s kind of a two edged sword really.
Allow the taxes to go up in 2010, and Obama refers to it as an issue the Republicans bought into as much as Democrats did.
Doesn’t that eliminate your ability to say it was Democrat policy that failed?
Soros knew every economic move Obama would make ahead of time.
Well in a case like this 2010 you yell and scream and warn and all vote against it but you let Dems get it past the Senate filibuster like Grahamnesty did Kagan.
So if Dems extended some of the tax cuts at end of 2010 Rs scream ‘they raised taxes’ and vote against it but not block it.
No, you cant shake Os hand and say it was a great bipartision agreement and then later demonize it like Ryan did the debt extension. THAT WAS STUPID! no wonder they lost again.
If the taxes go up now O is already in again.
i heard that Obama got the majority of the “takers” vote./s
The voting public is increasingly dominated by Hispanics, Youth and Single Women.
* Blacks cast 13% of the vote and Obama won them 12-1.
* Latinos cast 10% and Obama carried them by 7-3.
* Under 30 voters cast 19% of the vote and Obama swept them by 12-7.
* Single white women cast 18% of the total vote and Obama won them by 12-6.
* Obama won 43-17 before the first married white woman or man over 30 cast their vote.
With the above, Romney would have had to win over two-thirds of the rest of the vote to win.
He did win the rest but IT WAS NOT ENOUGH.
Excellent summary. Bottom line not far off fron 47 percent
There is no way the GOP should be losing the Asian vote. Asian immigrants are very entrepreneurial and usually very conservative socially, making them a group ideally suited for the Republican party. If the GOP cant connect with them, then they have serious issues. One of the reasons why the Canadian Conservative party has been so successful in recent years has been its ability to make inroads with the east and south asian communities, by recruiting candidates and emphasizing small government, lower taxes and support for small business.
I think they realize that they are a forgotten population and I think theybare staking their claim as. Must have group going forward
Single women are an angry bunch. They are angry on white men because they couldn’t hold on to one. And voting is merely an act of vengeance.
Imagine 10 years from now, they are in bread lines and adoration of Emperor Obama is still coming from them.
These people would.
Okay, but then Republicans would have had to help to get it passed in the House.
The Dems simply point out that you could have blocked it, but you didn’t.
That’s a very good case for the bipartisan argument. Isn’t it?
