GOP Turns Sure Victory into Defeat
Townhall, by Michael Reagan

Original Article

Posted By:lasvegaslou, 11/8/2012 1:36:10 PM

Wait until next year -- 2016, that is. That’s what disappointed Republican spinners kept saying Tuesday night as they watched Mitt Romney’s hopes crash and burn in swing state after swing state. How many times did I hear a Republican talk about how their party’s deep bench of future all-stars will return it to power in Washington in four years? But all the Ryans, Rubios, Bushes, Haleys and Christies in America can’t put the GOP -- or the country -- back together again.

Comments:
I've never been a big Michael Reagan fan but he's dead on the mark here. I guess the RINO establishment will most likely run Christe and/or Jeb Bush in 2016. It's his turn. That is if there is an election in 2016

The only reason why I wanted Romney to win is to get Obama out. I really don't trust anyone. The GOP party left us, we didn't leave them.

It's not simply how conservative...there was no red meat...Get another Casey to run the campaign...and had they outed Obama's policies...his racism..his racist pastor and his odd program's...his Communist missile running connected to the Muders in Benghazi...Had they run an ad showing Obama and Hillary eating popcorn in the situation room while our Aambassador was raped and our military Seals were murdered after a 7 hour fire fight....Had they simply shown the Polish cab opined shot down by Puting and run FLEXABILITY? FLEXABILITY ? For what????

We need a conservative who rejects Poloitically correct language and laughs at those who look to impose it ...

The country was worth a dam dirty flight ...and fighting back...

Mitt was a good man but not a street fighter...you cannot let the opposition put us in a pink dress...which was so laughable coming from the opposition... as Larry Sinclair might agree

On the one hand, Mike Reagan says Romney should have preached more real conservatism. On the other hand, he acknowledges that Obama won by promising handouts. Romney did the best he could by preaching opportunity. But, when the remarks came out about the 47 percent, he got pounded, didn't he? The problem is what Rush said. We have a country now where the majority thinks it is the government's job to take care of them.

We know what must be done. Who will lead us to do it?

The Republican brand is tarnished as the 'party of the rich'. That alone puts the party behind in general elections. Add to that the 'play it safe' mindset that dominates party gurus and advisers, and every election is an uphill climb. Democrats claim that they are really the party of the 'middle-class', and many voters believe it.

What is needed is a new party that genuinely represents the middle-class. The 'big tent' model must be abandoned. Political specialization is the future. Choose a demographic model, and represent it well. Draw from both of the existing parties. A multi-party Congress will result, and rule changes to reflect that structure will be made. No party will hold an outright majority, forcing the compromise that voters seek. No more Harry Reid's with dictatorial power. Finally, the middle-class will have its own voice, not to be suppressed by other interests. This model would be more in keeping to what the Framers originally intended.

This transition needs leadership. Who will step forward to do it?

IMO, the republican party is done. They will linger for another couple of decades primarily in fly over country. But the days where they will put an R in the white house are done and over with. If they do win, it will be because they follow the democrats by giving away free stuff to all that don't want to earn it.

And when that happens, calling them R's will not make them R's.

America as I grew up died this week. We are now the New United Socialist States of Amerika. The democrats know it and worked it.

The issue is the libtard/communist control of the media, education and political arenas. The vote fraud performed by the libtards to win this election should make that clear. The soap box and ballot box stages are just about over. The next box is what it appears it will take to remove the barbarians within this Republic's gates. And remember, 50% of the citizens didn't vote for the libtards, only 50% of the about 50% of eligible voters, so that means the weasels won with less than30% of American citizen support. They are out-numbered. Don't believe their propaganda spewed by their media propaganda arm, known as the LSM or alphabet networks, etc.

GREAT article. I agree with every point and would like to add:
- An R trying to turn "moderate" keeps conservatives from voting. Look at the lower turn-out! What more needs to be said.
- George W. did NOTHING to halt the increase in voter fraud. This is something that can be laid directly at his feet. Does anyone really believe that Philly had 99% turn-out in several districts? Especially when considering that a hurricane had just blown through. Why are there not more articles on the voter fraud? I would not be surprised if there were several million R votes that were never counted.
- Romney didn't fight when he needed to - instead, he looked disappointed. And we were told all along that he would get alley-dog mean.
- the way that the R's eviscerated themselves in the primaries was especially disappointing.
- why isn't John Cornyn getting his butt spanked?
- This should have been a cake walk!

None of this matters when the enemedia manage their coverage (and non-coverage) of political matters with a goal of promoting Progressivism and Secular-Left candidates.

Green Bay Packers fans saw a "sure victory" against the Seattle Seahawks in that final replacement-refs game, too....

He will make the prez position a forever one and sit on the throne with reggie. Mitt did very well, but the people have given up voting when all they hear is their Republicans being disses. I am also not convinced that there was not some tampering going on.

With very much respect, #6, that is the problem. When "remarks came out about the 47%," Mitt got pounded. So what???? So you quit and back off? Candy Crowley helps O embarrass Mitt about Libya during second debate, so Mitt abandonsthe Benghazi issue? As long as our side does this, why should Democrats change tactics? Reagan was a leader. A fighter. With the establishment and the libs AND no FOX NEWS, he passionately fought for us.

I'd love a happy warrior who lived their message and doesn't apologize for their life. Someone who doesn't turn their cheek in the face of rudeness, lies, or aggression. Someone to take a challenge to the pandering, politically correct professional racists and fans of socialism/communism. Not angry, but firm, confident and with a ready sense of humor and irony. They would have to have a minimum level of understanding about the media and how to reflect the edits and the traps back on them or at least know how to defuse them. That would be a leader for the ages and I don't care what their background was or race or sex, but that would just be the start of restoring sanity to our culture.

Without a serious legal machine, ground game and public relations effort to make EVERY election process fraud free, this ideal candidate will lose even if they win. I'd start all of this with ONE person in America who would be unrelenting in their determination to make sure active military who risk their lives for us, vote FIRST.

#15 hit on a big reason for the loss. Where are all of the Dem votes? In the large cities where they can cheat like crazy. Did anyone else hear Michael Barone say Cincinnati or another large state usually reports in late on election night. It's a matter of "how many votes are you short and how many do you need?" Those are the places Republicans always lose, even Ronald Reagan can't fight that. And wasn't it convenient that the election was lost in almost all of the battleground states in the large cities? My, my, my, what a coincidence.

"We have met the enemy and it is us."
(Pogo.)

Don't blame Romney. He is a very fine person, with principles, executive experience, governmental experience, admirable religious orientation and a lifetime record of charitable acts, everything his opponent lacked. We stood by and let him be smeared by people with none of those traits.

Why? Because we let stupid, uninformed, half fast people vote, for candidates who had not a prayer in this world of winning, for total non entities, or not vote for whatever nonsensical reason whatsoever. They are out there and we are stuck with them.
There is nothing "sure" about victory, anymore than there is anything sure about the survival of this great experiment in representative government.

I am embarrassed for us.

I'm trying to get my head around the idea that if Romney had run farther right he would have won in a landslide. Alan West was defeated. Grayson returned. Some transsexual was elected in AZ. WA and CO legalized dope. What the he double hockey sticks are ya'll smoking. The electorate wants liberalism. We're out numbered. Even the Amish have a reality show for crying out loud. If your into principle, I'm cool with that at this point but please don't tell me Palin would have gotten 300 electoral votes cause y'all are just insulting my intelligence.

With the benefit of hindsight we can see that the Romney campaign made a few key mistakes. But a larger question to me at this point is whether or not Mitt would have been able to govern had he won by a point or two.

That rodent dropping named Harry Reid would have shortstopped every economic or tax proposal, every effort to repeal ObamaCare, and every important judicial nominee. He and the crapweasel Schumer would have been at the microphones every day decrying Romney´s "right wing extremism", and the MSM would have lapped it up and framed every issue as their Democrat masters presented it. We the sensible people might have gotten a two or three year reprieve from our fate, but nothing more.

As an earlier poster said, a majority of voting Americans have chosen straight-ahead socialism even if they didn´t fully understand what they were doing. We have to live with their idiocy and make our own plans and adaptations.

And one more thing: no one great individual will emerge to save us from this. That´s not how it works. The courts are gone, the Constitution is a dead letter and a majority of the American voting public doesn´t know that and couldn´t care less. The rubicon has been crossed, and there ain´t no goin´ back.

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008.

State elections officials in North Carolina are investigating hundreds of cases of potential voter fraud after identifying thousands of registered voters with personal information matching those of voters who voted in other states in 2012. Elections Director Kim Strach told state lawmakers at an oversight hearing Wednesday that her staff has identified 765 registered North Carolina voters who appear to have cast ballots in two states during the 2012 presidential election.

A Slate article by David Gans makes much of the fact that business groups haven’t stood up to support Hobby Lobby’s religious exemption claims: This spring, the Supreme Court will decide — for the first time in our nation’s history — whether secular, for-profit corporations are entitled to invoke the constitutional guarantee of the free exercise of religion. The stakes are huge, as the justices will determine whether business corporations can claim a religious exemption from federal laws that protect the rights of their employees.

Fact Checking the 2014 State
of the Union address
Washington Post, by Glenn Kessler    Original Article
Posted By: lasvegaslou- 1/29/2014 7:00:01 AM     Post Reply
A State of the Union address is often difficult to fact-check, no matter who is president. The speech is a product of many hands and is carefully vetted, so major errors of fact are relatively rare. But State of the Union addresses often are very political speeches, an argument for the president’s policies, so context is sometimes missing. Here is a guide through some of President Obama’s more fact-challenged claims, in the order in which he made them. At the end, we also examine one fishy fact in the Republican response.

Approximately 18 people die every day waiting for an organ transplant. But that may change someday sooner than you think -- thanks to 3D printing. Advances in the 3D printing of human tissue have moved fast enough that San Diego-based bio-printing company Organovo now expects to unveil the world´s first printed organ -- a human liver -- next year. Like other forms of 3D printing, bio-printing lays down layer after layer of material -- in this case, live cells -- to form a solid physical entity -- in this case, human tissue.

DHS deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen confirmed that his status has not changed and that he is still on leave pending review.

I think a lot of people will look back at this point in American political history and wonder how things got so damn screwed up. It wasn’t always a given that there would be mindless gridlock on Capitol Hill, unchecked extremism and a general lack of leadership. Sure, one could point to the corrupting influence of lobbyists and interest groups on Congress. Or to gerrymandering. Or to Citizens United, which allows money to literally control politics and has made political parties less relevant, and allowed the proliferation of the ultra conservative Tea Party. There are plenty of others.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
