Continue to be blind to the continued implosion of your hapless party. Following Bush's 8 horrific years, Republicans had 4 years to reinvent themselves, and emerge from the gutter that Bush/Neocons represented. The result? They got WORSE, with the tea party downgrade, and Neanderthal obstructionism as the sole policy ideology. In the last election, even with that ridiculous Supreme Court support through Citizens United, and enough campain support to wipe of the national debt, they STILL were annihilated by the President.

Don't keep your head in the sand, the demographics no longer favor the GOP with its bigoted ideology. Latinos certainly are playing a major role in that. The GOP is in a free fall because it's obvious that their only concern is for the rich, at the expense of everyone else. Thumbs down on the GOP and the next election will again make that clear.

If Rupert Murdock was telling the truth about his US news paper circulation(NY Post and WSJ) the his entirety is running far better than that of the majority of liberal groups outside of the NY Times.

If Rush Limbaugh and the other conservatives are right about Radio broadcast then you guys are winning there as well correct ? so why is it that you continue to claim the main stream media is so left leaning ?

You cant claim that you have superiority in 2 of the 3 major broadcasting/communications sectors and then claim that the media is controlled by liberals.
while true... those are ratings for cable news. very small IMO compared to CBS, NBC and ABC evening news.

I still think it's faux outrage tho...

yes, but CBS,NBC and ABC dont really have any political ties. The right just calls them left leaning because there is a large group of people who think anything left of themselves is left leaning.

I don't think for one minute you really believe what you just said. Think seriously about this: It has been said, and not just by the right, for years the MSM and MSNBC are far to the left. Think of the programming, even 60 minutes for starters. Barbara Walters, Mike Wallace before he died and How about Chris Matthews, what about Rachel M? What about the View, we get to watch every morning if we want. Thank God I have other things to do in the morning. What about David Letterman? Give me the name of 2 or more contributors to MSNBC that are even Republicans much less conservatives. For every one you can give, I can give you 3 Democrats or left wingers that are Fox contributors. Are you ready, let's get started?

Imagine her having Colin Powell as her running mate. How about an Latino as her running mate, or an Asian? Maybe she would pick someone who is of mixed-race and GAY? Any combination dooms the hapless GOP. There isn't a GOP candidate alive who could compete.

I wouldn't count on it. A lot of the newer voters don't have that same god-like image of the Clintons, many were babies when they first heard of her husband molesting interns.

She's a bit past her prime now.

Latinos aren't really the monolith that you guys like to believe they are. For one, not all "latinos" are illegals that want unlimited immigration and big rewards for all who come here illegally.

Obama promised them he would get them amnesty very fast -- he has not done that yet. There could be some disillusion amongst the illegal latinos.

Other latinos might even care about jobs, education, some might even care about taxes. Obama is certainly doing zilch on those.

What's called the "latino vote" is actually only the illegal, pro-open borders, pro-abortion portion of the latinos -- and that isn't exactly all of the latinos. Even in the very liberal border area I'm in, you can find some die-hard Republican type latinos.

I am so desperate to be rid of Obama, that I would even take Hillary. I disagree that a Republican won't get elected next, because even many Democrats are so disgusted with Obama that there may very well be a backlash against ANY Democrat in 2016.

Women will turn out in droves for this next election as recent abortion restrictions will have them fired up. They will not be kind to Republicans.
Not all women want to have their unborn children killed. At least as many of the pro-life side are women.

Especially many women really aren't as gung-ho about having babies killed that are now surviving in the ICN's.
