Because we nominated Romney - we pissed away our chance of hamstringing Obama.
This is so terrible - had we simply defended the ground, we would only have to make up 3! Count ‘em, 3! Seats.
Totally mindboggling that with obozo at the top of the ticket we lost senate seats in deep red states like Montana, North Dakota, Missouri and Indiana.
It’d be like with Bush at top of ticket and Dems losing in places like new York, California, Mass, Illinois, etc.
there will never be enough cash to beat dem machines
I’m not buying this. The entire election reeks of voter fraud.
I remember taking some heat for pointing out that many pro-lifers can be one issue blinded, ideological retards, penny wise, pound foolish,anyone? How the freekin hell do you garantee rights to potential humans when proven ones, like use, are getting them stripped? Save the effing Constitution and it`s Lockean principles first, shmucks! "Oh, parish the thought, sir.",because "its for the CHILDREN!"
Berg of ND ran a very poor campaign. His dem opponent, Heidi Heitkamp painted herself independent and as much of a conservative as Berg, even though she was funded by out of state anti oil and anti military interests and is a die hard socialist.
Berg had real stupid advertising. Many of his TV adds had the following statement: “I like Heidi, but - - - “ He basically endorsed her by saying she was likeable. I put this in the same category as that “let’s reach across the isle” bullshit mentality the typical RINO has where every time you reach across the isle to a commie you lose something!
Heitkamp ran fierce attack adds, one of which painted Berg as a rich mean landlord, and he did nothing to defend himself.
Simply put, Berg brought flowers to a gunfight.
Well, sorry about what happened nationally, but yaaaa-hoo for us down here in Texas. We got rid of our worthless RINO and traded her in for an honest to goodness Tea Party Senator!!!!
Just wish he had more company!
Akin, Mourdock, Berg...
Missouri, Indiana, North Dakota, Montana....how the HELL could we not win those?
Obama’s coattails seem really really short.
Akin & Murdock = 4 Senate seat swing
...and for future reference...this was Huckabee's boy.
Teachable moment for Akin and Mourdock and any other Republican candidate:
when the MSM asks you about rape, abortion, contraception, or anything having to do with sex, immediately start talking about the $16 trillion debt.
We ran some subpar Senate candidates yet again. Not a shock Brown lost in far left Mass, but it’s clear we need to do a better job of nominating Senate candidates. Akin was a joke and everyone that continued backing him instead of urging him to get out did us a big disservice. Mourdock turned out to be a poor candidate and once he began pontificating on the rape/abortion issue it was all over. He should have just shut up, but bad candidates do dumb things. Retread Allen still had the “macaca” Washington Post smear weighing him down. McMahon is a stupid, laughable candidate in Conn. Just poor candidates elsewhere too.
We should have never lost ND, Missouri or Ind.
