Hugh Hewitt's advice
to grieving conservatives

With a deep sadness and no little fear: Congratulations to Mitt Romney for having conducted a disciplined and idealistic campaign of great consequence for the country, even if he did not prevail. He is such a good and generous man that the defeat is very hard on all of the people that saw in him a combination of talents that the country desperately needed. Nature intervened after he had successfully overcome all the powers of incumbency, but he and his team --and especially his remarkable and wonderful family-- sacrificed so much and worked so hard.

We are in uncharted waters. But the Framers were geniuses, and we will see if that wisdom surpassed even what we had previously appreciated.
If the w0n does not follow the laws and nobody hold him accountable then the Framers and the country have lost everything.

The Romney effort was the essence of class. Here is a hard working, generous person (and family) who offered himself up to us. No one could have worked harder than him. The sacrifices he made, including time away from family, were incredible. We are a better people from his example. Unfortunately, evil prevailed in this election and now we must move ahead and fix it at the mid-terms.

Perhaps #4 will fill us in on what efforts he/she made to defeat Obama.

Perhaps Romney could have played a little nastier. Would that have worked? The media was waiting for him to do that so they could pounce. We don't have a level playing field in our politics. I definitely appreciate the effort Romney gave us.

Our framers were genius, but they didn't protect us against the evils of progressism, such as redistribution. And they thought the 2nd amendment would be required to ward off tyrannical government, but in fact we have a tyrannical populace that wants revenge for America's past, and they are getting it. Can we employ our second amendment rights to tamp that down? Gonna be messy.

People I know have identified and will remember the people and businesses who had the Evil One's buttons or poster's in their windows ......... and will NOT frequent their businesses. [or speak to them]

Remember Starbucks and Walmart's owners gave millions to help Great Leader win. Think of the film and TV personalities who's films you do NOT need to enrich by your presence.

We must however remember to frequent Chic-Fil-A and other businesses who will be punished by this administration.

#4 I'm grateful that Romney was willing to run, to open himself and his family up to that grueling process, a process the Left never seems to endure. I was not a Romney enthusiast, not until he chose Paul Ryan.

Look at what our own party does to itself. There's a lot of truth in the saying "We eat our own." I no longer consider the GOP my party, and I will not give them a single penny. I hate how they have managed the party into the dung heap. They're no better than the Left. How will we ever convince another qualified person to run in the future? It's bad enough what the Left does to them, and the corrupt MSM; look what is done to them by their own party!

Romney didn't stand a chance because of the wholesale fraud by the Left.

Something is rotten in the State of Denmark: the huge crowds, the lack of signs for Obama, the other pointers to victory for the GOP.

Our election looked just like Hugo's from Venezuela. The people were against the tyrant but the tyrant counted the votes.

Amen, #9.

Now, the states with pubbie gov's and legislators need to implement voter id by tomorrow - that way it can wend its way through the courts and be solidly in place by the next election. Next, pubbie state committees in EVERY state need to have closed primaries, day after tomorrow. Third, go back to paper ballots providing an audit trail - the electronic machines allow the libtard criminals (but I repeat myself) to cheat with impunity. Fourth, stop acting like its a big surprise that libtards would cheat during the voting process - even the foreigners thought that was crazy, especially given the godless nature of libtards and the whole secular-humanist movement encouraged by the communists for the past century.

The multitude of voters with the intelligence level of the "Gimme, gimme" Obamaphone lady was just too great an obstacle for conservatives to override.

I was one of those who was lukewarm to Mitt Romney at the beginning, but as I watched him and heard him throughout his campaign, I changed to an enthusiastic supporter. He stood head and shoulders intellectually, morally and common sensibly above his opponent, and in another era, when those things mattered to the majority, he would have won in a landslide.

Continuing what I started in '08, I take a small bit of satisfaction in never saying President and Obama in the same breath. He hasn't earned it.

Didn't everyone reading this thread try to tell people who didn't follow Conservative blogs to watch Fox News? Especially on Benghazi, since we were aware that the Alphabets weren't carrying it?

Didn't we ALL try to tell others to get their news from Fox, at mininum the straight news part (60PM EDT)?

Didn't we ALL send what $$ we could to conservative candidates? Local and National?

Don't we ALL realize that a neutral media would have had America electing Romney?

I think the time is NOW to begin working hard for a conservative Senate in 2014. We can start by sending whatever loose $$ we have left to our local Tea Party.

Sorry. No one -- not even charities (well maybe except animal charities -- they didn't vote) is getting another nickle from me. Let 0bama take care of the poor and the hurricane victims. I gave what little I couls (and which I could really ill-afford) to support conservative and Pub candidates, but no more Charity begins at home and I have a feeling I am going to see a quick reduction in my income come Jan 1.

Yes, thank you, Mr. Hewitt, for expressing the gratitude and congratulations to Gov. Romney and his family and his team that I feel. I agree with the poster about Ryan - a fatal mistake nominating a virtual accountant of all things rather than a broadly inspiring person such as Rubio - not that even that would have been enough though....

I am deeply grieving. I am a big FB person but have deactivated my account as most of my friends, real & FB, are libs. I refuse to watch the news and have taken refuge in oldies channels & movies - I am shielding myself as much as possible for now from the politically correct new world. I'm pretty much seceding from the universe.

I sincerely hope that Mitt Romney can stay connected to Republican and conservative/Tea Party national and local organizations. His close defeat against uncontrollable forces (including voter fraud and vote reprocessing via engineered software)should not send him to Coventry. His experience, class and a strong campaign earns him a voice. Let's give him an interval, and invite him into the fold--but understand if he wants to stay away and be private from here on in.

On another thread I also proposed a Leadership Council of Tea Party/conservatives that can help to pull the RP in the right direction: Ryan, Rubio, West (even if not reelected), Mia Love, Jindal, Portman, Martinez, Pence and others. I'd also like to see Sarah Palin brought back into the fold.

The Romneys were wonderful. Why can't people grasp the fact that Obama voters simply are so dysfunctional that a long MARRIED couple with traditional values seems alien to them?
Obama got the vagina vote, the gay/lesbian vote, the welfare mother with 7 kids by different fathers vote, the college kid who is taught commie propaganda vote, the Jews who would vote Obama even if they had to enter a boxcar to do it ,and the vote for skin color vote. Certainly NOT traditional American values. They don't even have a clue about values.
Add to that the votes of the military that were never delivered to be counted, and there it is. America is dead.

#4, it certainly should have been easy to win, but I say this election was lost in 1960. That was the election that galvanized the left to grab total control of all media from commercials to classrooms AND it showed them that the ways to shape the actual votes as they did in Chicago was easy and could be expanded without fear of any exposure.

Combine all that with Ted Kennedy's blatant and successful dumping of millions of dumb parasites into the population along with a steady chipping away of rights via every crisis from war on poverty, war on drugs and war on terror. Yes, an outright liar and inexperienced failure like BHO should have been easy to expose, but look around, we are surrounded by neighbors who hate you more than their own survival.

My advice is ignore all media, including Fox News. As a statistician, I knew Fox News and Dick Morris were misleading us with the skewed polls nonsense. We got complacent when we should have been alarmed and fighting back. No pollster that is any good weighs for party identification for technical reasons (e.g.,self-report of party id is unreliable, confounded with demographics that are already weighted in the regression models). Still we heard this b.s. about Dems +7, skewed samples, etc., from people like Rush who had no idea what he wasa talking about. Morris should know better as a former pollster (and a good one, for CLINTON!) but he lied thru his teeth. Fox should fire him, just as I would be fired by my CEO if I delivered these kind of junk stats.
Other Morris Gems:
Mitt Romney Will Defeat President Obama In "A Landslide"
Republicans Are "Going To Win 10 Seats In The Senate"
"It's Very Possible" Obama Will Drop Out Of The Presidential Race
Donald Trump Is "Going To Run" For President And "He Could Beat Obama"
Herman Cain "Will Overcome" Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Michele Bachmann Will "Probably" Win Or "Have A Strong Second" In Iowa
FL-Sen: Connie Mack Will "Overwhelmingly" Defeat Bill Nelson
MI-Sen: Pete Hoekstra "Will Knock Off" Debbie Stabenow
ND-Sen: Duane Sand "Is Going To Win" North Dakota's Republican Senate Primary

#21 - My son, approaching 30, grew up with and acquired my conservative values. He and I were in synch when it came to the potential evils of big government, he understood that more laws = more taxes, even realized on his own that the Fed should be abolished. Bought his own handgun. Then he moved to NYC (had to leave the gun with me) and started dating a Jewish girl whose mom is a big obama worshiper/contributor and whose brother is gay and angry that he doesn't have the same rights as everyone else. Not only did it convince my son to vote for obama but he had the audacity (a word I've come to despise) to ask me to do the same in lieu of sending him a check for his birthday.

The Republicans should not go along with any sort of Obama amnesty that gives illegal aliens eventual permanent residence, and "a path to citizenship" which is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually giving the legalized aliens duel nationality and US voting rights.

Whatever amnesty passes should be limited to a temporary immigration status, not leading to permanent residence, along with an indefinite work permit, and the ability to come and go from the USA. Any legalized alien should have to qualify and apply for permanent residence just like all legal immigrants who come to America are required to do in accordance with the immigration laws.

If the Republicans cave and go along with "a path to citizenship" amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens, they will be handing the liberal Democrats many millions of new socialist oriented foreign born voters in the years ahead, and will thus be committing long term political suicide.

Unfortunately any sort of amnesty that passes will encourage more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration, as the liberal Democrats will continue to oppose and sabotage all seemingly effective immigration law enforcement measures while supporting future amnesties to enlarge their ethnic voter bases.

Could not disagree more with #4 OR agree MORE with #5,#8,#18, & #22 and all other sensible Conservative posters today who understand what an impossible task Mitt Romney undertook in running for President, because he BELIEVES in this Country. Please spare us the sarcasm about what a "loser" Mitt Romney is. Look around and see REAL losers..

Hugh Hewitt's advice is going nowhere. We have been playing it the way he proposes for decades now and the cancer of Progressive/Socialism has simply matastisized even further. It's time for new blood and a different approach and leave behind the old , entrenched GOP establisment and seek other means of being the "Chemo Therapy" this nation is crying out for. At least half this nation anyway. The other half are simply "owned" by the Progressive/Socialists and are beyond salvaging.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed.

He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

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

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15.

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.
