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.

To think that there are people stupid and cruel enough to vote to put that sorry sob back in office is eye opening. The dumbing down of some people is complete. We have a second term prez that let Americans die while he made phone calls and went to Vegas, the filth that has another 4 years will bankrupt the USA and anything else he can do.

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.

Others to include: obviously her husband, Todd; and Franklin Graham, Christian evangelist; Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kansas Gov.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
