    You just lost to a community organizer with unemployment hovering around eight freakin' percent. And it wasn't even close. Since there are really no words to describe the scope of your epic electoral failure, let's just focus on the future. I have three questions:

    First, are your ready to admit that the same loons who have provided your party with so much energy over the last three years are the same people who are most responsible for this disaster? Or are you going to double down on your lunatics in the next election cycle?

    Second, are you ready to admit that the country's demographics are changing rapidly and that a large part of your failure was/is your stubborn refusal to address those changes? Face it, America is becoming more government-centric, more government-dependent, right before your very eyes. If you don't like that fact, are you going to change hearts and minds or are you going to keep screaming "Marxist communist Kenyan" hoping that will work?

    Third, are you ready to admit that the days and philosophies of Gordon Gekko simply no longer apply, and perhaps never should have? That we should encourage and celebrate excellence and achievement while still keeping our focus on a flourishing middle class, even if that means the wealthiest of us need to put a little more in the kitty? Or are you going to simplistically say "no" to all taxes without considering the long-term ramifications?

    I'd love some straight answers to those questions, but frankly I'm not holding my breath.

    As I said, I wasn't expecting straight answers. And the first response was from the King of avoiding straight answers.

    Perfect.

    edit to add: Obama won 50% of the popular vote which means 50% did not want him.

    But you came to lecture on how to do better.

    Did not your candidate get his ass kicked much, much worse than the Republican?


    How about a straight answer?

    I think if we sit passively by and let the democrats outspend their resources for four more years, a natural enema may occurr. Don't you? I don't intend to change my principals to match their, if I wanted to be a loony irresponsible liberal I'd be one. And lastly,, screw taxing the rich, you can take all the wealth that the rich possess and it will fund obamacountry for about 30 days. Do you have anymore brilliant ideas? So far we're going to hire 100,000 more teachers, pay them with taxpayer dollars, inport 12 million ignorant illiterate illegals, and cut our defense spenind by a couple of trillion. And you want me to be okay with this why exactly?

    I didn't read your post beyond the first sentence, and I always stop at the first obfuscation.
