I don’t think it’s the GOP at all. More than half the voters in this country voted FOR Obama. California and Illinois voted for more democrats even as their states face inevitable bankruptcy. The people with a complicit media still blame W for the bad economy. The voters value “tolerance”, gay marriage and free condoms over job growth or healthy GDP. Don’t like it. I can’t explain it. It just is.
All true. What to do about it, though?
The GOP is a big part of the problem; they always seem to find candidates whose turn it is, not whether they are competent and can rally people across the board like R. Reagan did.
The GOP keeps wanting to field candidates from the GOPe that the conservatives out here in the real world don’t like or trust.
They keep trying, and succeeding to destroy any popular candidate who is not part of their exclusive little DC club.
The GOP was one of the first and worst to savage Sara Palin and any other truly conservative candidate that they considered a threat to their slimy little power structure.
Instead they give us candidates like (viagra) “I’m Bob Dole” or the good senator from Arizona “Obama’s OK” John McQueeg.
So don’t tell me it’s not the GOP; I like to watch what people do, not just listen to what they say. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you our BIG BONER in the US House of Representatives.
>> I dont think its the GOP at all. More than half the voters in this country voted FOR Obama.
Definitely the fault of the GOP, as in the “establishment”.
The energy for Mitt wasn’t high enough to overcome the fraud on the Left. The vote for Mitt, where it happened, was perfunctory; not the overwhelming turnout it could have been.
