They lose and immediately the chorus begins. Republicans must change or die. A rump party of white America, it must adapt to evolving demographics or forever be the minority. The only part of this that is even partially true regards Hispanics. They should be a natural Republican constituency: striving immigrant community, religious, Catholic, family-oriented and socially conservative (on abortion, for example).

The very special Dr. K. is right about this.

Mitt is a nice person. Too nice to cage fight with these lying, cheating thugs and too nice to call them out on it.

Extremism, in the defense of liberty, seems to have become a VICE in the Republican Party while extremism in promoting Communism and Racism is working very well for the Dems.....as long as you don't count the implosion of the economy and the loss of the Republic.

Zero ran a calculated campaign, by going moore negative than any campaign I can recall. Going negative suppresses the vote.
Then he made sure the church vans were fired up, ready to haul the low information voters to the polls, especially in states with early voting.
And he gave each of them a pack of cigarettes, or a pizza party, or in some cases, (columbus, ohio) crack cocaine.
that is the magic formula with kardashian voters, where being famous for being famous gets you a victory.
Our coutry has been dumbed down along with an entitlement mentality, and here we are, facing four more years of being governed by the dumbest man in the room.

Thank Heavens for a voice of reason! Ive been so tired of all the pundits saying how we need to be more moderate(liberal) to win elections.
FTA

"The country doesn’t need two liberal parties.

Since when do we sacrifice our core beliefs of smaller government to win over uninformed people that only listen to the lousy MSM if anything at all?

Romney was a good man and maybe too good to be a politician. He didnt play the game. But I for one am sick of the democrats using all the social issues like the "women's" issues to push elections. You will note we won't hear anything about it now until the next election rolls around.

If there's one consolation, Obama has inherited a big mess. Now he can show how incompetent he really is.

Have read that Zero received 10 million fewer votes than '08 and Romney 3 million fewer than McPain. According to Rush the low Repub turnout was among the base. We did pull disgruntled, disillusioned voters from the left. The question is who in the base didn't vote, anti-Mormon/anti-Catholics, Paulites, people disgusted with the whole negative mess? We'd better figure this out.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

The exit polls showed more Hispanics (66%) supported abortion than did the electorate overall (59%). Pew research has shown the majority of Hispanics support gay marriage. The majority of Hispanic babies (53%) are born out of wedlock. "They're social conservatives" has been shown over and over to be a canard.

On the other hand, the majority of Hispanics in their home countries have regularly supported Marxist-leaning regimes, and that's before they get to the US where the Democrats promise ever more benefits (already at least 57% of Hispanic immigrants, both legal and illegal, receive some form of welfare) and even affirmative action preference over most long-time Americans simply for being who they are.

The idea that they are going to change their politics because we give them amnesty and the right to vote is delusional. They will only significantly increase any demographic advantage that the Democrats already have.

I suspect that the two parties had already agreed that they'd pass 'comprehensive immigration reform' before the election anyway--perhaps due to concessions to big donors in the GOP? (E.g., is Shelly Adelson a big employer of illegals in Nevada?) Otherwise, Mitt wouldn't have practically offered another $10K on-the-spot bet in his second debate with Obama. He forcefully guaranteed that he'd get comprehensive immigration reform passed in his first year. Yet all kinds of GOPe--including establishment GOPe such as Hannity and Krauthammer--have come out in support of amnesty and citizenship for illegals within two days of Romney's losing.

Either way, this was planned and promised despite the majority of Americans firmly opposing it.

If it is true republicans "stayed home" because they saw a McCain, then they deserve to get Obama again. The whiny, crybaby, traitors who stayed home are just as big a force in destroying this country as the communist Obama. A soldier doesn't always like his mission, but he still gets it done. You can always vote against someone if you can't find someone to vote for. I have no respect for a republican who refused to vote because he thought Romney was too "liberal". They can burn in h*** since they have helped saddle my sons and grandchildren with more outrageous debt.

#5 -- I'm not so sure that is true. Go look at Wisconsin. In Wisconsin, Obama lost votes, not many, but Romney won 200,000 more votes than McCain. His numbers were about the same as Bush's in 2004, but Obama was able to hold the same amount that he got in 2008.

I don't think of it as "two Liberal parties", I think of it as one communist party and not sure how to characterize the other party these days.

In my deep depression over the current victory of the Communist Party USA, the only consolation is that we do not have to endure 4 years of Romney Derangement Syndrome. Mitt is too good a man to be destroyed by the Obama adoring yellow journalists in this country.

where I went to vote, I couldn't even park my car. Had to wait 45 minutes just to get into the building.

Ballots are still being counted-----when does Congress certify the winner, because there sure is a lot of voter fraud which is being found.

Things have to get worse before they ever get better.
In the 1930's things got so bad that even Republicans voted for Franklin Roosevelt.
Democrats just don't trust any rich, clueless Republican like Romney. Plus they were way better organized to get out their vote because they really feared losing and Republicans were so over confident of winning and many just refused to like or vote for Romney.
When the government checks finally stop as business slows to a crawl and no tax income covers expenses and China is not lending anymore , reality will hit with a thud. Prepare! Human nature is greedy, both banks and citizens who think there is a Santa Claus.

F. Reid Buckley, a novelist, columnist, founder of a school of public speaking and, in family lore, the most literary of Aloise and William F. Buckley Sr.’s 10 children, including former Senator James L. Buckley and the conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr., died on Monday in hospice care in Columbia, S.C. He was 83. The cause was cancer, his son William Huntting Buckley said. Mr. Buckley had lived in Camden, S.C., since the early 1970s.

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan.

Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia.

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders. Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.” When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that

Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

   

 



 
Ten Welfare-Reform Lessons

New York City’s welfare system is managed out of a boxy 25-story office building on Water Street in Lower Manhattan. Approximately 5,000 employees work there, directing government programs that provide billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded assistance to the poor and near-poor. A solid majority of the workers at 180 Water Street are African-American or Latino; their voter registration is almost certainly overwhelmingly Democratic; and all but about 300 of them are union members. But from 1995 until this past December, the people who worked in New York’s principal social-services agency were leading one of the most conservative and successful welfare

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

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.

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.

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.
