Okay, so it's only been 3 days since Romney's overwhelming defeat but it feels likes 3 weeks. I thought all of the political drivel(commercials) would be over when the race was decided. So, how long before republican City-Data'ers will stop pulling an OJ Simpson. You know his book, "If I Did It" but in this case, "Why He Didn't Win."

A. Three weeks

B. Three Months

C. Three Years

D. Three Decades

Republicans aren’t analyzing Romney’s loss ... and that’s the problem. Most of the comments in the last few days have been from Democrats. Many of the Republicans seem to have disappeared ...

That's right. What you don't know won't hurt you.

Really? I guess we take our comfort where we can.

According to Dick Morris, if Romney won with over 300 EVs it would be a total "smackdown" for Obama.

In all, Obama's EVs will be 332. I call that a pretty good smackdown.

In addition, Obama carried all the swing states with margins of between 3-7%, with the exceptions of Ohio at 1.9% and FL with .6%. He's done better than Bush in 2004 who had 286 EVs and a 3% margin in popular vote.

Obama's margin right now is 2.6%, and will probably end up being 3% when all the votes are counted.

Dems also gained a few House seats and a couple in the Senate.

The country prefers Obama. The people have spoken. He better damn well play hardball with the GOP. Even the 80 CEO's say it's time to get real and do not oppose higher tax rates on the well-to-do. Poll after poll says over 60% of the people approve of higher tax rates for the high earners - and that includes Republicans.

Not raising tax rates by 4% on millionaires/billionaires is ludicrous. Not cutting the military is ludicrous.

I hope Obama has the spine to do it.

Enough already.

Don't think they'll analyze it at all. They already blame the American people for being too 'stupid' to vote their way, so, in their minds, the problem is not with the GOP, but with everyone else.

99% of the "analysis" of Romney's loss is being done by the resident liberals on here, not Republicans. I'll give it a week or 2 before the threads become boring and disappear into page 2 and then to obscurity, unless something scandalous happens in the next several days

So you're saying that they won't analyze it? They should.
