    against the tide of demographics.

    And maybe that might not be enough.

    George HW Bush was too old and frankly boring.

    John McCain same. And tried to run a PC campaign.

    Romney had the resumee - but was too bland and had the Mormon albatross.

    Ran a crappy campaign - should have gone for the jugular after he won the first debate.

    IS THIS BECOMING A ONE-PARTY NATION ala Nazi Germany and the old Soviet Union etc????

    If the far right controls the party, then it will find itself in trouble. It doesn't have to become liberal to be competitive or to attract minorities, but the social agenda and the incessant belief that all taxes are bad are not workable agendas.

    The GOP prez candidates TRY TOO HARD TOO BE PERFECT.

    Nixon and Reagan were true to their roots.

    Dubya was an aberration.

    GOP candidates have to have a realistic platform and need to dull the voices of the legions of morons in their party in order to win.

    If the GOP doesn't get their house in order this will become a country controlled by one party.

    The GOP sucks.

    They don't have to be perfect, nobody is perfect. They could try to be sane though.

    I do wonder why they don't get that they lost the election because voters don't like their policies. The teaparty specifically lost, neocons have lost and have fallen by the wayside in the past and yet they continue to hold on for dear life.

    Is it arrogance? Money? Do they think we just don't get them? I think Democrats should make a serious effort and get to work right now on the House for 2014.

    The Republicans ran a sociopath who is the very embodiment of how this country's economy got fucked and who was caught in several lies and made several major hilarious gaffs... and you're surprised that they lost?

    The election was all about the Democrats getting Democrats to come out and vote. A lot of Republicans sat home. People who make it out to be the end of the Republican party are fools.

    Wrong, asshole. All taxes are bad. What's good about a tax? All you're really saying is that so long as they don't support the liberal agenda, the The DNC propaganda organs (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, MSNBC) will crucify any Republican who has the slightest imperfection. They won't even bother to ask questions about a Democrat.

    Who do you think you're fooling?
