Not only did Ryan lose his home state, but Romney lost all of his home states.

Massive coordinated election fraud.

I thought maybe we would do better in Wisconsin after we defeated Feingold in 2010. We had momentum coming out of 2010 but it was squandered on things like union busting and preventing women who have been raped from getting abortions. We need to learn to choose our battles more carefully and we need to learn that frontal assaults don't work.

As far as Romney goes, are you really surprised he lost Michigan after his bailout remarks? and then of course there's Massachusetts. We managed to take Ted kennedy's seat from him and then lost it to a woman caught lieing about her Indian heritage. More squandered momentum.

It isn't just that we lost on social issues, we failed to break into any of the Democrat's key demographic groups in places where we needed to. we needed to break into the hispanics in Florida and probably virginia. We didn't. We needed to break into the female vote and the union vote in ohio. We didn't. I still contend that Donna Glisman was a better candidate that Josh Mandel because she would have given females in Ohio something to vote for besides the D. mandel was just one more mistake in a long line of GOP mistakes spanning from 2010 to 2012. we played a great game in the first half but we blew it in the second.
