I am all for bigger tents. However, we need to not have our center pole be the abortion issue - many poeple, especially women, do not vote for a candidate based on how they view abortion. IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID! Make the economy/fiscal responsibility the center pole and you get more votes. IMO, Romeny should have been pounding this into the heads of every American. Every single ad should have been on fiscal responsibility and how the govt is so out of touch with how households are managed. Until the right does that, they will continue to lose to a bunch of idiots who say what needs to be said to win an election.
Hmmm, seems that Mitt made the economy the central issue of his campaign, and we all know how that turned out. The leftists voted on social issues and ignorance of how our government works. The stupids think that zero has the power to do anything he wants or campaigns on. If he had his way - he would - and he still might before the end of his second term.
Oh Lord, how it pains me to write those words - second term. Ugh! It sounds like an eternity.
We tried that already, are you still shocked we didn't win?
Good grief, what is wrong with your brain?
The difference here is not a difference of opinion. You are advancing the idea that a guy who spent every stump speech and ad talking about the economy and even managed to make economic growth plans an important topic of conversation in a foreign policy debate somehow lost because he was too busy thinking about abortion to let voters know how he felt about the economy.
You might as well have posted that the Clinton Administration didn’t have any scandals or that the Marx brothers should have tried making some comedy movies. You’re either blind, brain damaged or a troll.
It’s the same old RINO crap: We can win without you dipstick jerk social conservatives...oh crap, we lost, it must be because we spent too much time wooing those social conservatives. If you can’t think better than that, go over to DU. In a shocking “coincidence,” the libs think the GOP should give up social issues too, because it will help conservatives get elected. Aren’t they nice to help us out like that?
as Scott McNeely used to say “put all the wood behind one arrow”...
