Get a dose of reality. Murdoch and Brown lost. Was it Romney’s fault that Murdoch made a stupid comment about Abortion? Connie Mack and George Allen ran horrible campaigns.
I forget who said running “retreads” like George Allen and Tommy Thompson might not have been the best idea. I wonder if other Republicans might have done better but the turnout and trends were just against us. With the GOP being down to 45 though I am not too optimistic about them gaining 6 next time, unless there are several Demo retirements.
Funny how it’s always everyone else’s fault but Romney’s. No, it can’t be because Romney delivered fewer republican voters than John McCain.
Hey - face the facts. This would have been a massive blowout, if Obama had performed up to par. Obama did terrible, but fortunately Romney failed to take advantage of a 9 million drop in voters.
Three of the Senate candidates had mouth problems: Akins, Mourdock, and Allen (remember macaca?).
Several seats that were supposed easy GOP pick ups got lost. Just weeks ago, many of the ‘professional prognosticators’ were saying the GOP could pick up about 5 seats.
The GOP needs a massive revamping of their message or their messengers.
The RNC raised record amounts of money this year--enough for every senate candidate to have his own trust fund going into the fall campaign. Where did the money go and why did it make no dent in the electorate?
Because the mindset of Boehner and Co. is a reincarnation of Bob Michel--"Hey, let the democrats do all the heavy lifting. We in the minority get paid just as much, and get a lot more time in at the country club."
