Any postmortem will be flawed which ignores the documented presence of large and intimidating Black thugs outside polling places.
And of course, there’s the usual voter fraud that puts the Democrat over the top.
Notice how there was just enough votes for Mcauliffe to avoid the mandatory recount. How convenient.
That’s excuse making. We need to win, despite the thuggery of the other side.
If that’s their SOP, then we need to operate within those parameters. If we were talking strategy/tactics of a military campaign we’d simply account for the enemies tricks and beat them harder.
Virginia has gone blue.
It has not. Reread the article. Cuccinelli needed a better campaign than Romney.
The takeaway on the Virginia election is - McAuliffe won on a plurality. Like Bill Clinton in 1992, it took a “spoiler” to tip the election his way.
But McAuliffe is no Bill Clinton, and he will not make much of a mark as governor.
Still, it is a great springboard for a Cabinet position under Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless.
My take away is that the 3rd party killed the Republicans, again.
Though I heard that the 3rd party voters second choice leaned Democrat.
Pretty much sums it up, and unfortunately demographics is destiny.
It's time to punch back fast and call them out as Demonizers and Anti-Americans. And this includes the Lamestream Press.
Here in Northern Virginia, Cuccinelli was almost invisible on mass media because he was swamped 5:1 or more by Democrat advertising.
Also we are normally solicited by mail and telephone to contribute to the (R) candidates - if that occurred in this election I didn't see it.
Without money, it's next to impossible to win any statewide election in VA.
I live in Virginia and what happened was McAwfull flooded the airwaves with attack ads starting in the summer. There was no response. It was very disheartening. The low info types were brainwashed for months, to make it worse it was a cartoon smear campaign that was engineered for the low IQ types. The non response even made Cuch look “guilty”, even to me - it was ridiculous to not respond.
That's less than Cuccinelli got in his run for governor.
What you are saying might make sense if Romney had actually won in Virginia. Too bad he didn't though.
I have the same observations. They didn’t try to get the message out and when they did, it was too late to get them over the top. The libretardian didn’t help, but he wasn’t the reason Cucc lost.
If it’s true that pubs stayed home in decisive numbers for this election, they were the sore loser, Bolling crowd, I surmise.
In the future, Bolling = toast
Correction - should have said the spread between Cuccinelli and McAuliff was less than that between Romney and Obama.
