GOP needs a facelift
Boston Herald, by Joe Battenfeld

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 11/7/2012 3:21:19 AM

Republicans had everything going for them. A horrible economy. A weak incumbent. Motivated voters. Now it’s time for the GOP to face reality and clean house. They need a new message, and new messengers. Republicans and Mitt Romney have only themselves to blame for their staggering defeat. It wasn’t Sandy’s fault, Candy Crowley’s fault or Chris Christie’s fault. There are some glaring reasons why President Obama won re-election. Now GOP leaders have to learn the lessons from this debacle. The biggest issue the party faces is winning back women. GOP candidates once again

Now the lying, cover-up court eunuchs who helped deceive the nation into retaining the Marxist they so dishonestly and illegally colluded with - now they dare come out and blame the GOP? I hope everyone has stocked up on barf bags.

Being defined by progressives in the MSM as the 1%, anti-woman, homophobic, racists was the problem. Evil, lying nasty cheaters was the problem.

Give Pubis job to Rubio. He has a chance to re-define our platform in simpler terms...

Poor Obama. He's inherited a real mess. s/o

Romney was our last hope, but the press would have sabotaged him and the Dims would have screamed at every tiny thing trying to make "scandals" after four years of covering up real ones. Maybe God will transform this horrible event into something good.. Maybe Obama and all his cronies (press included) will destroy themselves.

Meanwhile, America needs to start educating its children again and putting God in the center of everything again, as it was meant to be.

I don't think we need a facelift. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would have made a wonderful team in the White House. They are decent men with keen knowledge and a viable vision about what is wrong with our economy and how to fix it. What does this author want? Some rock star with a progressive message? We are a nation divided and 'there's the rub.'

Agree #7, Romney and Ryan were what this country needed. Maybe what needs fixing are those citizens who think they should have everything free. That is the mindset that needs fixing. BTW, Obama voters are going to demand facelifts and how dare you say the GOP needs one.

So the problem with the GOP is that they're not more like the Democrats?

Who is going to buy the knock-off when they can get the real deal: full amnesty, subsidized abortion on demand, etc?

Better to let the liberals be crushed under the weight of their own policies (how cheap is giving 20 million people social security and Medicare going to be?)

We have to look at elections long term.

Furthermore, we did not "have everything going for us." We did not have a lying press willing to cover up and distort the truth. We did not have a legion of poll fixers to cheat the vote. We did not have a World hierarchy filling our coffers. We did not buy the votes of illegals and the poor. We did not have union thugs to strongarm members and do dirty deeds. No, we only had 50 million tax paying citizens who believe in the rightness of the American way as it should be and two candidates willing to work hard to straighten out a terrible mess. God help us.

We need to become stronger in our conservative outreach, not weaker. There will be no reason for social conservatives to vote if we don't. Not all conservatives are wealthy, and without the social issues they will have no reason to vote for either party, or they may decide to vote for the Democrats because they promise more.

No. Not true. I've been telling you people for years that the only thing that counts is the percentage of the people either on welfare or keeping government office chairs warm. That's all that counts. If you think this election was bad, wait and see what four years of adding new millions onto welfare and more millions into the thousands of bureaucracies can do to elections.

I don't want to hear all these right wing recriminations they're going to throw at us.If you can't win on reviving the private sector and paring down the deficit,there's no other way to win. Nobody feels a sense of panic with Obama because the media doesn't say what's at stake. To say republicans need to be more like dems is ludicrous,there's no point in having 2 parties.

When you're down to a paltry 112,000,000 people in the workforce while Obama's bragging about 5 million new jobs,it exposes the true disconnect between reality and fantasy in this country.

This wasn't a victory for dem ideas,it was the left's ability to spread their new citizens around to swing states.

GOP facelift - there was already huge pressure for a third party but everyone stayed put because of the importance of beating Obama. The establishment got their candidate and the co-operation of all the membership. Romney didn't do anything to scare the precious independents or say anything radical. The only thing the GOP has now is the house and it's leadership. Will they do the only thing they can do and not increase the debt limit one penny-and explain why! Their gutless leadership will fold again and Obama will continue having flexibility to destroy everything that is left.

I didn't sleep last night. I am a single woman who works very hard to support herself, working in a business service industry. Unless some sort of miracle happens, the deals we had in the pipeline will dry up as businesses shrink and begin to fold. God is my provider so I am not in complete despair.

What has me grieved to the core of my being is the moral implications of the election and the proof of the complete erosion of America's moral fiber. No matter how I choose to live my life, I will be paying for the behavior of others and to support them in their livestyles - I will be working hard so that other women can murder their children.

America as I loved it no longer, and I am desperately grieved that we are soon to become like Europe.

The only problem I see is that some of our elected Republicans failed in their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, domestic and foreign. When they chose compromise instead of pushing back against attacks on our founding principles, it was a slippery slide into the chaos we face today. When they chose cronyism and wealth accumulation as a perk of their position in government, integrity and honor took a nose dive. Normal everyday working Americans stood up and shouted, No more, and the Tea Party was born. Last night we were knocked back on our heels. I see no chance of change until we see leaders who will stand up to this administration and fight for freedom. Gov. Romney fought the fight with honor and courage and God bless him for it. It broke my heart to see him lose because It made me realize that our best hope to turn this around had slipped through our fingers. Now we must travel the hard road.

Romney's campaign was based entirely on the premise that the economy is in shambles. But the fact is, the economy has been building; slowly, but building, for at least the last year. And our side chose to dismiss the facts as lies by the bureau of labor and statistics, even though there was no evidence of that.

#33, and to all of you who want to fight harder with more truth, logic and character: it will not work.

The vote totals prove that the majority of the electorate vote their feelings, and not what is right.

Therefore we have only two options left:

1. Battle on a purely emotional and irrational basis - not easy to do for those of us who use their brains for intellect and not involuntary life support.

2. Crash the System - Going Galt won't do it alone. It will take a coordinated effort by all to quickly bring about insolvency and collapse.

Sad days ahead regardless of which strategy is pursued.

Our Lord is in charge, so fear not. Faith in him will never leave you destitute of purpose or hope.

It doesn't matter what the Republican Party does or doesn't do or whether 80% of the population votes for Republicans if the vote counters are ready and willing to commit voter fraud. The fix was in. That's why Zero didn't care how he performed in the debates and why he was so lazy except for partying with JayZ and Beyonce. He didn't care about the massive crowds showing up for Romney/Ryan. He knew the fix was in. And it's only going to be worse in the future. Only God can turn this ship around.

If the wimpy Republicans now cave and allow another liberal Democrat amnesty and "path to citizenship" for up to 20 million illegal aliens, who would then gain the immediate right to bring many additional foreign family members into the USA, and who once they get US voting rights will absolutely vote in overwhelming numbers for the liberal Democrats, how is that going to help the wimpy Republicans win future elections?

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare?

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016.

(Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown.

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
