Posted on 12/10/2012 8:09:07 AM PST by Perdogg
Critics of the Republican loss in the presidential election, which returned the status quo to Washington for another four years, have spent a number of weeks analyzing the reasons for the debacle. Pundits have put forth demographics, messaging, the Obama turnout machine, and a whole host of other assertions to show why Republicans must go back to the drawing board and reinvent themselves. No doubt this sifting process will continue for months to come. Though John F. Kennedy's oft-quoted dictum that "victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan" still holds true, it appears the orphans are having a national convention asking themselves, "Who's your daddy?" Now that Mitt Romney appears to be fading from the scene, Republicans have not quite decided either who will come off their fairly strong bench to lead the party, or what the Republican message for the future will be.

I’ll take “rampant fraud and Vichy Republicans,” Alex.
The author lost me with this statement. Medicare Part D represents an unfunded liability of $7.2 trillion. The premiums for Medicare Part D only cover 25% of the costs. The rest comes from the General Fund, which borrows 42 cents of every federal dollar spent.
The crap that Medicare Part D came "under budget" is part of the flawed GOP rhetoric that attempts to justify the welfare state. And now that Obamacare has closed the donut hole, the costs will increase.
So in 2016 we run a real conservative...a warrior who's not afraid to call the Dem candidate (Hillary?) what they are: socialists and petty fascists. But what if we lose again? Even after four more disastrous Obamanomics? Will it be time for a split?
America, as we knew it, went straight into the freedom dustbin the instant the Republicans passed Obama care before they even knew what was in the bill.
The exact time and place will be recorded in the history that will be censured by the communists and never shown to their slaves.
That act will go down in history and the most flagrant example of incompetence of any government in history and the very minute they passed it, I was done with the Republican party from that point forward.
Nothing has changed with them since that time that all of the “Lemming” RINOs jumped over the cliff.
The party is “toast” and anyone who is naive enough to think so will be “easy pickings” for all Republicans in the future.
From the Washington Post this morning...
Obama wants $1.6 trillion in tax increases over the next decade, but many Democrats privately say they would settle for $1.2 trillion. Boehner has offered $800 billion, and Republicans are eager to keep the final tax figure under $1 trillion....
Reminds me of that old joke, "A man walks up to a women in bar and offers her $1 Million dollars to have sex with him. She quickly accepts. He responds, how about $25 dollars. The women gives an indignant snort and says, "Sir, just WHAT do you think I am?!? The man responds, "You've already demonstrated what you are, now we are just negotiating a price."
With Boehner's offer of $800 Billion in tax increases he's demonstrated to Obama that the Republican are pledge breaking tax raisers. Now they are just negotiating a price...
So, can you name even one Republican who voted for Obama-care?
I think you're confused, FRiend.
Fraud, cheating and RINO’s teaming to make money off the little people. There does not seem to be too many standing up for truth, justice and the American way ... they roll over and accept money instead.
Outstanding points, to which I would add:
Having secured the nomination Romney made ZERO effort to reach out to those candidates supporters who had been defeated in the primaries and continued the scorched earth policies began during the primaries.
Obamacare didn’t get one single R vote, in the house or the senate.
The RATS own that 100%.
I’m about ready to start posting the “Noth this sh!t again!” graphic on these topics.
Enough punditizing about “why we lost”. Let’s get on with “how we will win”.
“its secret was competition between drug companies that drove down prices”
We have really got to stop it with the “free market solutions” we come up with to inject in massive expansions of the welfare state because we’re afraid the socialists will pass worse laws without them. Libs depend on us to feed them healthcare exchanges, the individual mandate, cap ‘n’ trade, etc. so they don’t have to come out for pure nationalization all at once. We enable them with our marginally less socialistic socialism.
Why we lost; the big picture? Surely you don't think America voted to reelect the Marxist/Muslim usurper- the worst president in American history!
>Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election.
>The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office.
>Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.
>Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
>Mitt knew it too, when he was met by several thousand in that parking garage cheering him when he arrived unannounced at that airport, and he put his hand over his heart and said, 'This is how you know you've won'.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?
Massive voter fraud.
That and no other reason
Almost every major Conservative website has put out an article charging voter fraud- Breitbart, American Thinker, Atlas Shrugs, WND, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Town Hall, Human Events, Canada Free Press...
Can't you just imagine the above was the scene with Obama and his Commie staff after stealing the election through voter fraud- while Conservatives blame Romney, argue, point fingers, blather on about who to run in four years, 'starting a new party', and try to figure out how to suck up to minorities the 'next time'?
Next time? What makes you think the massive voter fraud in this last farce of an election won't be repeated? If we don't clean up our voting system, there may not be a next time. We may not see another Republican president in our lifetime
Map from Barack Obama Voter Fraud 2012
What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about who to run in 2016 and how to suck up to the minorities.
We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.
We must act NOW.
Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.
We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....
Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people dont trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".
We must fight election fraud.
It falls on We the People.
Silence is consent
The website,'Barack Obama Vote Fraud 2012' is keeping a running account of cases of voter fraud and what to do about it:

Believe it or not, there ARE patriots out there who are going to FIGHT Obama's reelection- unlike the spinless Republicans who remain silent!
Visit the website; 'The Competent Conservative'
'These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it wont do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below... '
Visit the website, 'Halt Voter Fraud':
'This election is not over - YET. Obama has not been elected by the Electoral College - YET. The Presidential election is being stolen from us with "Chicago Style" thuggery - and we can STOP the thieves in their tracks. But we do not have time on our side. This is our LAST chance. Don't give up. We must act now.
If massive voter fraud has occured as alleged by so many, and if the state vote counts include these FRAUDULENT votes, then is it logical to say that the entire state vote is COMPROMISED and can't be trusted? 59,000,000 Americans might agree!
The state vote is used to determine the allocation of Electors in the Electoral College which actually elects the President and Vice President.
If the vote count is FRAUDULENT, FLAWED, and CAN'T BE TRUSTED - and if the Electors have been FRAUDULENTLY allocated based on FLAWED vote counts - then WE CANNOT ALLOW THE GOVERNORS TO SIGN THEIR CERTIFICATES of ASCERTAINMENT on December 17th. We can stop this if we ACT IMMEDIATELY.
***** CALL TO ARMS ***** FIVE STATE CAPITOLS ***** SEVEN DAYS *******
Patriots must rally NOW in the State Capitols of Harrisburg,PA - Richmond, VA - Tallahassee, FL - Columbus, OH, and Madison, WI ****** MASSIVE RALLIES ** *** PATRIOT LEADERS ORGANIZE YOUR LOCAL EFFORTS NOW, coordinate with the other PATRIOT groups as they also rally, let us know who you are and how you will respond, how we can help.
Remember the Battle of Trenton?
We can make HISTORY TODAY.'

I’m going to have to call The American Thinker The American Stinker if they keep putting out stuff like this. Not one mention of 9/11. Not one mention of Obama attacking Libya. And Mitt Romney was defeated because of the war in Iran? A swing and a miss.
“Understand yourself and understand your opponents, and in one hundred battles, you will not be defeated.”
I have written about the Democrats use of Behavioral Scientists to win elections. They understand Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and use this understanding to frighten people into voting Democrat. We don’t have the nation of rugged individualists. Our culture, for the past 50 years, has been intentionally manipulated into producing fearful, distracted people. The Democrats didn’t elect Obama because he’s a strong leader, they elected him because “he feels for us”. He knows that they’re afraid. The Democrats use that. Why shouldn’t we? If the way the Democrats ease that fear is with promises of other people’s money, then why not play up the fear that the Democrat’s bungling will cause that money to go away? Fear is a strong motivator. Show that the Democrats like to hand out money, but they don’t know how to make it. Play up Detroit. If you want to scare people, show them the Democrat paradise of Detroit. The Democrat voters will see that the Democrat leaders are like Aunt Thelma who gives them nickels but eventually winds up living with them because she’s broke.
If you look at the exit polls, Romney won the non-Hispanic white vote in every age group including the 18-29. Demography is destiny. The Democrats are well are their way to becoming the permanent majority party. They are the party of minorities and immigrants. The US will look demographically like CA in 2050. CA is a one party state that is becoming even more blue. Eventually, the entire Congressional delegation will be Democrats. It is inevitable.
FYI: Romney received 60.6 million votes--more than McCain. He did better than McCain in almost all of the swing states. He did better than Rep senatorial candidates in IN, MO, MT, ND, PA, etc.
We lost because Romney was a crappy candidate from the start. Lots of conservatives stayed home, and they had their choice validated by the fact that the candidate who spent millions to vilify conservative opponents in the primary, didn’t have a single dollar to spend to vilify Barack Obama.
Romney failed to engage. He didn’t engage on the economny, he didn’t engage on Benghazi, he didn’t engage on a visibly failing foreign policy, he didn’t engage on jobs, taxes, entitlements, social issues, or even the price of tea in China.
Romney was a failure. Every prediction that the Romney-bots were leading us down the road to disaster has been borne out. Those of us who voted for the guy out of some or another form of last-ditch desperation knew full well that he was a creep.
And he proved our better instincts right.
One more thing: when he mince-stepped up to the microphone versus when Obama did the same, Romney looked vapid and metro-sexual.
He lost in all areas: bad handlers, bad strategy, bad technology, bad communication, and bad candidate. My only conclusion is that he and his butt-buddies like Karl Rove were clueless or actually wanted to lose.
And don’t tell me it was fraud. If it was rampant, obvious fraud, then the candidate himself uttered not a peep. In which case, he proves himself again to be a spineless wimp.
He needs to just shut up and go away!
I do not know the numbers but from the looks of how many Repubs stayed home on November 6th, this is probably the biggest contribution to the Romney defeat.
Precisely my point. No one even tried to stand up to this except Alan West. This man should be our president.
