    We need to own up for the fact we picked the wrong man. Obama should not have won. Yet we picked the man who couldn't beat a man who presided over high unemployment , Leaving four men to die and lying about it, Being downgraded for the first time EVER, high fuel and energy costs and food cost and last but not least a corruption the likes we have never seen.


    All of this and yet still Obama won...

    Not only that but Romney didn't even get the base!

    Maybe it is time we stop trying to be the party of moderates and start being Republicans again. The party that ended slavery. The true party of equal rights. The party of smaller government. The party of freedom. I am sorry but we surrendered our principle to try and look hip and in the end it is not what wins or saves the country.

    What do we see on TV? That it is conservatives that lost it....Really? Only a damn fool believe Romney was conservative. We are the problem when we nominate a moderate and still he loses?????

    Moderates like Romney, Rove and the speaker of the house are killing the party.

    But that's simply untrue. It wasn't that Romney was the wrong man. It was that the people chose Obama instead. Romney is the only candidate that ran who had the experience doing exactly what needed to be done.

    I agree. Become even more extreme. That's a great political strategy. For the left!

    You just described the Tea Party. Good luck with that. I am sure you all could convince Michelle Bachman or Christine O'Donnell to run again....

    You couldn't be more wrong. We picked the right candidate who could get this country going in the right direction. The problem is there are to many people in America that can be suckered into voting for a Obama who hasn't a clue.

    But here's the silver lining. Liberals argue the GOP is the party of old white men. Well if that's true then everyone who DID NOT vote for Obama will be just fine. The unemployment rate us highest among latinos and blacks. They got what they wanted. Let's just sit back and watch their unemployment go even higher under Obama.

    What bothers me more than Romney losing is the absolute stupidity of the GOP in being unable to increase their majority in the House and NOT gaining a majority in the Senate.

    There were some good candidates that simply could not get their message across against the smears, lies, and threats from the left.

    Oh yeah - 400,000 union workers went out to support Democrat candidates. :mad:

    Romney was exactly the right man.
    Did you see the ground work and coalition the big unions had organized.
    The money they donated and raised for the President was phenomenal, and the President
    will now owe them in spades. Exactly what the unions wanted.
    Mix in the larger and larger Latino vote, and that was the edge.
    Maybe Charles Krauthammer is correct in saying that Conservatives
    need to start talking about amnesty......in positive way.
