“There’s a Sense That We Let Mitt Romney Down”
I recommend these guys commit suicide at once to make up for their disgrace. That would have the added benefit of making sure they never manage any campaign again and remove some GOP-e candy a**es permanently.
You have chosen dishonor to avoid war; you shall have war also.
That hits home.
Personally, I think that posterity may look back at this as a close call for Republicans. And for crying out loud, is it too politically incorrect to be an optimist?
It looks like a lot of Republicans -- enough to matter -- essentially felt the same way FR and JR did originally. Jim Robinson was right, essentially. Romney was bad all around and should have been dispatched years ago. Enough of "us" (I am one) thought strongly enough that we voted "none of the above," some of us for the first time in 35 yeas of voting. That means there's a lot more of our particular kind of Republican -- I would say small-government-Christian-moral-Republican-is-the-whole-point-of-being-Republican kind of Republican -- than we think.
That's good news right there, I don't care who you are.
And on top of that, the reality is that sans vote fraud, the election's outcome would have been much different. When will our side get it through it's trembling shivering watery guts, that the fact that Dems have to cheat so spectacularly, means we outnumber them?
That's a good thing! Cripes, we almost elected a Republican who, among other things, was responsible for law in Massachusetts that essentially used government tyranny to force adoption agencies to accommodate gay "married" couples as parents. We almost had, as our "brand" leader, a guy who invented and implemented the model for ObamaCare! A Republican!!!
Why the hell even belong to the Republican party if that's what you're voting for? And forget voting "against," that's a loser's game.
There's more of us than there are of them. Obama is loathed and fraudulently elected. He is weak and he is vulnerable. The imaginary hold consists of media image. It is like a mirror. It creates illusions.
Look, I'm sorry Obama won, but I'm glad Romney lost. No matter who is to blame, time moves on and this election just provided a lot of evidence that there's a powerful "silent" (or might we say "silenced" or "out-shouted") majority in this country that tends to agree more than disagree with FR.
And anybody who thinks that the majority of Americans are "children" who wanted to vote for "Santa Claus," are looking down wrongly on a lot of real good folks.
