    Oh so we are talking about the right in general. OK then yeah some are and some are not. Unfortunately I do not want to hear the left in general bitching about it because some on the left throw fits when they lose as well.

Well idiots (myself included), you didn't listen to the Nuge and now the man behind Cat Scratch Fever, Damn Yankees, and Wang Dang Sweet (Something that's hilarious but I probably can't post here) will be dead in less than 130 days, since Obama is going to want to kill him for some reason. Be ashamed America, very ashamed.
    I am ashamed. Ashamed that Nuggent got enough burn for an idiotic comment like that to be put out there.

    But this isn't about losing in general, this is specifically about the fact that the GOP has managed to alienate large, fast-growing segments of the population, and that it continues to alienate them through idiotic comments.

    Man to hell with the GOP and the Dems.

    Why do you think I posted a thread about a 3rd party?

    I keep hearing about how the GOP is dead and out of touch. That they got slaughtered in a landslide. Yes, the E-college win was lopsided but it's not like 75% of the country voted for Obama. He won by a very narrow margin. I don't think that the problem is as bad as it is being made to sound.

    What I find really difficult to understand is why the GOP act as if there is some major party to the right of them they have to constantly worry about losing votes to. As if somehow, if they waver in their support of nutcase Tea Party views, the voters on the extreme right will abandon them and flock...where exactly?

    Who knows how many votes this Mourdock fiasco cost Romney nationally. Why was the response so weak? Why was there lukewarm condemnation, but no pulling of the Romney ad endorsing Mourdock? Remember, this is a guy who in the end had more than 10% fewer votes than Donnelly and lost the damn senate election anyway? Was it really worth it?

    Why not come out really strong and give him a choice of either a full, grovelling, unconditional apology, or being kicked out of the party? I know it's late in the election, I know GOP allegedly believes in the freedom of conscience for their members and all that jazz, but if you really believe a member of your own party has said something so hateful and ridiculous(and is then trying to justify it), why would you want him in your party?

    Why was it so important to support a local candidate who according to polls at the time stood little chance of winning anyway? Why is one single senate seat in Indiana more important than the national image of the party? Again, I understand what a mess it would've been to withdraw support to one of your own a week or two before the election, but was it worth not doing it in the end? Romney lost(not that I'm for a second suggesting that was the key reason or even that big of a reason, but it was part of a trend) and in the end, Mourdock lost, too. All that was gained from this was the reinforcement of the image of the GOP as a party of old, white, Christian men who think women are receptacles for sperm.

    I do think the GOP has a problem with youth and hispanics. If they increase their margins there they will win mor elections.

    I heard on the radio today that Romney didn't do bad on the exit poll survey. The one thing that killed him was; "which candidate cares more about me" in which he lost to Obama by a whopping 81% to 19%.

    To me you can clearly draw that back to his 47% comment a month or so ago. I think that shook not only the takers (many of which vote republican any way) but the guy making $28-30K a year who isn't quite sure if his job is going to be there in a year or two.

    Yeah, what's really telling about that graph is that Obama won Nevada but won just two counties there, Washoe and Clark. The counties that happen to have Reno and Vegas in them.

    And while Romney won Missouri, he won it 54% to 44%, yet Obama only one three counties. Jackson, Boone, and St. Louis. Home of Kansas City, Columbia, and St. Louis...again, where the people live.

    Speaking of which counties he won, I was pretty bummed Obama lost Albany Co in Wyoming (where i live). It was close though, Romney only won by 2.5 points-400 votes (I love living in Wyoming lol).

    At least he won a county there (looks to be the county Jackson and Yellowstone are in). He didn't win a single one in Oklahoma, thus confirming my stance that Oklahoma is the absolute worst state in the nation.

    But really, you need only go as far as facebook.
