Let’s Not Panic Over Romney’s Defeat
American Spectator, by William Tucker

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/21/2012 6:15:04 AM

I know most people would like to forget about the election, but as someone who supported Mitt Romney throughout the primary campaign -- taking a lot of flak from Spectator readers in the process -- I would like to defend his effort and make a few comments about the future of the Republican Party. First of all, Romney ran a damned good race. He was up in the polls by as much as 7 points (Gallup) going into the last week. Where he got sandbagged was Hurricane Sandy. The storm captured the nation´s attention

"he got sandbagged was Hurricane Sandy"

That´s absurd. He got sandbagged by massive and multi-pronged election fraud.

Aside from the 100.00% sweeps in Dem areas, van loads of blacks showing up to vote where none live, and 140% turnout of registered voters, the voting machines were just gamed for the Dem win. At my voting location and everyone I talk to, lines were out the door. Massive turnout. But at the end, the official numbers are that 12 million fewer people voted for POTUS than 4 years ago. My guess is that maybe 20 million votes were discarded, probably all of them for Romney.

Add to #1. Obvious solution/redress is who? Eric Holder. Never mind. And that is why the RNC is dead in the water.

I agree,the republican hand wringing needs to stop.This whole movement of being liberal lite needs to stop also.Our biggest problem is Obama´s open borders policy which is in direct violation of the law.There needs to be lawsuits brought against them for recruiting foreigners with welfare welcome kits.

If you delete the votes cast for Obama because Romney was white, Romney would win big time. Obama isn´t really president to the majority of the people who work in the private sector and are paying the freight for this circus.

Let´s end all this hindsight. Face it, it´s all over. Romney was beaten by being what he was, a flip-flopper. He was also beaten by the 47 percent running around with Obamaphones. He was beaten by 8.5 million "disabled". He was beaten by god knows how many food stamp users.
Cain had a chance until somebody assassinated him (hmmmmmm, I wonder who???). The republicrats consistently ran machine politicians except where the tea party candidate was able to beat the republicrat candidates. Dare I say that the difference between republican and democrat is infinitesimal. Well folks, we finally did it, we ended the greatest experiment in human history. The republic is no more. The Constitution is a bath mat. The lunatics run the asylum. Welcome to the USSA. I hope you like it here ´cause this is all that´s left. Stop talking about this in get into the handout line like a good little American. Oh, and drop your pants for the TSA cavity check.

I am far from "panicked" or however you spell it....but I do wonder why we are no longer seeing pictures of Obama touring the Storm sites. What is he doing ? And what is Romney doing ?

If Romney wants to "prove" his worthiness then I would expect to see him helping out even in defeat. The GOP needs to know what sells and not just quit because we lost.

Do the right things and stick to the message. Win or lose. If this is truly the right course people will see it eventually.

Mitt needs to be organizing food deliveries and soliciting funds. Is he , or were we looking at a false front ?

All politics is local. 30 of 50 states are either controlled by a Republican governor or GOP-controlled state houses. All the states that matter to me (OK-TX-KY) are solidly RED.

Save for some college towns and liberal outposts here and there Middle America did NOT vote for Øbama and will never embrace the shame of relief and assistance.

Build on what we have. Redouble the effort to reach out to Hispanics with a clear, concise message about free enterprise and social conservatism (the Libre Initiative is working on this right now)

Mitt won´t call a press conference to tell you what he is doing to help people. He happens to live it.

All this handwringing is to convince itself that the Republican "brand" is not "conservative". The Republican election pros insist the dogs won´t eat the conservative food, and thus refuse to feed them any as proof.

I expect John Boehner and Mitch McConnell to be huge disappointments in the next 2 years and beyond. More so than Obama, at least with him we know what we are getting.

Sorry, but this nation, and the Republican Party as a viable second party, both died on 11-6-2012.

As soon as NØbama gets 20,000,000+ illegal aliens instant citizenship, and they all register as Demon-RAT voters to thank their beloved President NØbama, BAM, there won´t be a single red state left in this union.

We instantly go from 50% of all US citizens on some sort of government assistance to 75% of all US citizens getting cool ´´free stuff´´ (or should I say ´´liberte material´´ for all those 20,000,000+ new citizens who probably won´t bother to learn English) from their beloved Demon-RAT representatives.

The 25% of us that are left that still believe in hard work, liberty and freedom, are going to be a quckly extinct breed.

We needed to panic in 2008 and work like there was no tomorrow in 2012 if we didn´t. Well, we didn´t. Evil won, and we are through. 236 years was a good run...

While I don´t share quite the level of pessimism with #15, he makes a valid point. I am quite tired of hearing:

*-Voter fraud cost the election
*-Romney was a bad candidate, or ran a bad campaign.
*-Conservatives stayed home and didn´t vote
*-Obama used technology and got his word out better

None of these are true, and yes, we sound like a bunch of liberals looking for a convenient answer.

The real answer is the simple one--the takers outnumber the producers, and you are not going to win their votes over, EVER.

Do I know the future? No, I don´t. But now IS the time to panic. No IS the time to start yelling at your neighbor. Now IS the time, in your social, and work life, to start digging a little deeper into people you know and work with.

They want divisiveness? Why don´t we show them some. Dump your cute girlfriend who believes in abortion and free birth control. She´s not that cute. Seek out vendors that share your values, even if it takes a little bit longer to get to know them. And when you are handing out good advise, business ideas, or just being neighborly, maybe think twice who you are associating with. Here´s a shocker, maybe, just maybe, exclusion isn´t a bad thing, it´s actually a good thing.

Sorry, this last election changed me. I cannot be friends or associates with anyone who voted to ruin this country.

What Tucker doesn´t mention is that, since three Supreme Court justices are over 80, they probably will be replaced under Obama II, by hard-left anti-Constitutionalists.
Time to panic now, Bill?

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders. Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records. The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on

Dem Senator Nearly Hit by Train During
Press Conference About Commuter Safety

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) has been waging a campaign demanding safety accountability for the Metro-North railway this week after it was discovered that the MTA has had 139 violations resulting in $552,000 worth of fines over the last ten years. But as he discovered this week, there is also an element of personal responsibility when it comes to commuter train safety. Blumenthal was holding a press conference Friday on the Milford Metro-North station platform when an Amtrak train came barreling into the station and almost knocked him out cold. Just as Milford Mayor Ben Blake was saying, “safety, as you know,

Despite being shot in the head twice, a young boy credits his faith in God for keeping him alive and able to sing his praises. A double Easter miracle will occur today as a 13-year-old Brooklyn boy who survived being shot two times in the head watches a live-streamed concert by the crouch choir in which he would otherwise have been singing. “They are giving me a lap top,” said miracle kid Gama Droiville from his bed in the pediatric unit at Kings County Hospital on Saturday. And anybody who wants to join young Gama in watching an Easter service

Dems want government health

With little fanfare, Vermont is preparing to become the first state to implement a single-payer, government-run health-care system. The Vermont plan, if implemented, would abolish private health insurance in the state and replace it with a taxpayer-funded system under which the state government directly pays doctors and hospitals. Of course the state is having a bit of trouble figuring out how to pay for the program’s estimated $2 billion price tag, considering that the entire state government’s operating budget is currently just $2.7 billion. Currently under consideration is an increase in the state sales tax from 6.9% to 29%. At

   

 



 
In a Hole, Golf Considers

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

Western lawmakers gather in Utah

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

The Clintons´ ´conspiracy commerce´ memo

The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
