Liberal class warfare coming from all angles................ wow.

Quite a few of the GOP candidates need to take sensitivity training. Those dumbos with the stupid rape remarks cost the GOP at least two senate seats. Even Republicans voted against those clowns.

I suspect that Todd Akin will never have strong GOP support again for a big public office. Not only did he make extremely insensitive remarks, he had GOP leaders calling for him to step down from the race (so they could replace him with a better candidate) but he refused and then lost the election, in a race the Republicans had been heavily favored to win.

Obama may have gotten 51 percent of the popular vote (and that's IF there was no fraud involved), but that means 49 percent of those who voted think differently.

So the idea that you guys are trying to float that Republicans are all washed up and Republicans have to move to the middle to get anyone to vote for them, etc. is ridiculous. If we move to the middle, then what? We are just like you? No thank you!
That lead Romney to not be like us. Us, we are called "Winners." "No thank you!",eh?

Gotcha.

I see our wing nuts are still in denial and refusing to learn the lessons of why they lost. I hear many of them keep saying if only they become MORE extreme and go even FURTHER away from the majority of American voters they think THAT will help them win elections.

News Flash: To win elections you have to get the majority of the votes! That means moving back towards the center, where most American voters are, instead of moving away from them by becoming even more extreme right.

Smile Those "GOP are in trouble" posts make me laugh

They make me laugh, also. And all that psychotic right wing anger is a hoot, too.


Relax. Take a deep breath. You'll be OK. Seriously.

You DO realize that probably over half the 'wealthy' that President Obama is threatening to tax - were people who voted for him. You do realize that, right?

If not - go back to your trailer and read some more.
Why so much hatred? YOU ALL WON THE ELECTION. You sound like sore losers when you won. Regardless, what you're saying has little basis in reality.

Ringo, over half of the wealthy did not vote for Obama. He won because of the poor. Every income group under $50,000 voted for him, every one over voted for Romney. Romney won those with household incomes of more than $250,000 per year by 11. Click on "income" for a nice chart:

Exit Polls: Casting Ballots in 2012 - WSJ.com

And - surprise - Obama did the best among high school dropouts, while Romney won those with Bachelor's degrees. (Yes, Obama won those with advanced degrees.)

Shouldn't you go back to your trailer and read some more Ringo given that you said someone else needed to do so to learn facts that are simply wrong. Of course you didn't read to determine the facts, you just spouted hatred.

And I think actual data, Frozenyo, proves that Democrats/Obama voters are far more likely to be broke or work at places like Papa John's.

I would love to see responses to this from both of you, but I know I'll never get one from either of you yet you will both likely continue to spew this crap.

I don't understand how we are the hateful ones? Have you seen some of what's directed at us? In this thread, we're all called racists, we're all told we're uneducated and live in trailer parks. This sounds like what a losing team would spout, not a winning one.

Given that AZ actually trended Republican both in absolute terms and when compared to the nation as a whole since 2008, despite McCain being the nominee in 2008, I don't think AZ is anything for the Republicans to worry about. VA and CO are purple, not blue. Yes, NV is probably blue at this point. GA was still 11 points more Republican than the nation as a whole. Again, nothing to worry about.

As far as the popular vote, we lost by 3. That's quite close, regardless of what another poster said. I bet he thinks that the 2004 election was close ironically.

The GOP isn't in trouble because Obama won reelection. The GOP is in trouble because its assessment of Romney's chances was so wildly off.

Conservatism has gone off the rails intellectually. The extreme right and its bizarre, inaccurate worldview has come to dominate the party's following at the grassroots level. It is not just liberals who say this. Many more thoughtful conservatives--e.g. David Frum--are saying exactly the same thing.
