Good first step, Rick. Keep analyzing.
Yes I totally agree, an offensive ballot stuffing such as the ubama camp undertook would have been more effective /s
yes lets give up about those counties reporting 110% or even how one state VA had military votes going 50/50 which is unheard of
or lets ignore how more people voted tan registered in areas
or better lets say how those observers were thrown out
or maybe how about COL Allen west is finding out that republican votes were not counted in the Dem counties and has picked some up
I culd go on and on but hey lets move on and talk about a bad campaign, I mean we can;t look like sore losers and be called a name off the Dems attack dogs, oopps sorry the media
As if the sweater vested loser would have done better. Just shut up and go away Ricky.
You have to go after these mofos. They are corrupt, childish street fighters. You have to beat them any way you can
Renowned political expert and incredibly successful politician, Rick Santorum, has spoken. LMAO
Santorum may well have won PA and even OH! Blue-collar pedigree.
I don’t think that it benefited Romney to play defense on the last 2 debates.
If he was more aggressive, like he was in the first debate, I think he would have certainly gotten more votes. Maybe, not enough to swing election.
On another matter, Ryan was not effective in his debate.
Repubs must learn how to put down childish debate tactics like Biden employed. Ryan could have put him very easily in his place by say, “Stop acting like a three year old. Adults are trying to have a debate about the future of this country. If you continue to misbehave, we will be forced to put you in a corner for time-out.....Pretty easy...fight back....
Who lost in a bigger landslide in a Senate race than the infamous Christine O’Donnell?
The incumbent Senator, Rick Santorum, Rick was booted from the Senate in a 17.4% disaster.
He lost `caus he`s a RINO from the neo-marxist State of
HEY !!! Rick !!!
If Willard could have imagined Obama was a kid in need of a haircut or one of the Conservatives who ran in the primary, he would have been there with scissors and a base ball bat...
I’m not sure. Perhaps people believed Romney about the sorry state of the economy and didn’t want jobs, they want Obama’s “free stuff”.
Romney lost because he does not believe in conservative principles and never has. He was the 3rd or 4th pick to conservatives and only got the nomination because the elites in the republican party had preordained his candidacy from the start. Newt and Santorum were torpedoed to make sure Romney got the nod even though he had more money to run than all the others combined. Get ready for Jeb Bush to ride in with great fanfare from the republican leadership!!!
Sanotrum is wrong. Romney lost because dems have huge pools of taker voters in urban America and the dems can get them to the polls in national elections with a marxist candidate of color at the top of the ticket. Their pool of voters is bigger than ours and will remain so. Deluding ourselves that we need to tune our message or get on the amnesty bus to win national elections is, well, stupidity.
And....his message stinks.
What does Santorum know? He lost to Mitt.
up Santorums backside.
Pat Caudell(sp) really gave it to Mark the fill-in guy for Hannity today.It was really interesting stuff as well.
He pointed out how Romneylet the rats have bain and so many other hits that we never had a chance.the 47% etc.
Than there was the fat basturd from NJ Colin powell and he said we should have been in PA with big ads months ago.
He said our guys— mainly Rove and the other campaign managers were so inept mitt never had a chance. Poor messassging we never had a theme, it was a huge clusterf...
He made a lot of solid points.
Oh, hush up, Rick. This isn’t productive. If you have something useful to do with yourself and your contacts (including me), then get on with doing it.
Was it getting stuff, was it playing defense, was it the media?
As I’ve reflected on this over the past 2 days, my sense is that the agenda, the discussion, the very knowledge that people possess was the issue.
That makes the media weigh in more heavily than anything else in terms of obama’s victory.
On the one hand, a large segment of them have been lulled into a permanent stupor, getting their news from the likes of letterman, snl, the view, and even sitcoms. On the other hand, there are folks who listen to news, but the majority of news outlets are so one-sidedly liberal that they simply don’t hear the message being proposed by the other guy. There is a blackout of opposition information.
It was THAT blackout that made Romney’s decision to play defense such a crucial mistake. After being introduced to the people, not as a demon but as a businessman by his first debate, he should have continued to use the debates and his access to coverage to talk about the information the people weren’t getting. He didn’t. He chose to say repeatedly “I can create jobs.”
The bottom line for the future of the Republican Party is not really demographics. Their future lies in gaining more media access that is free and unhindered. Accomplishing that is possible by total capitulation of conservative principles and becoming liberal lite to the democrats liberal heavy. They might then get a hearing, and that’s being bandied about by such as Brit Hume, Bill Crystal, etc.
If that is unacceptable, then Republicans must find just as effective, far-reaching, fast, and entertaining news sources as enjoyed by the Democratic Party. One idea is to take over one of the major networks. Fox + ABC, for example, would considerably level the playing field.
My sense, though, is that such a takeover will not be allowed by those who trade in power and change.
That leaves a period of crisis that will change the fundamental way people think as a possible route for changing the nation. A depression, a lost war, a plague...who knows. But a day of fiscal reckoning is approaching. There is a day when spending more than one’s income + one’s borrowing will come to an abrupt end.
The nation then could try war to take what it wants from other nations, but economic weakness leads to military weakness, so the longer the fiscal insanity continues, the weaker our military will become.
Financial collapse is now an imaginable future.
