    Deep down we all know that this is a new America with little to no connection to the America of our founders. The puzzlement is, that democrats actually imagine that the new America is somehow deserving of some sort of patriotism or loyalty when it clearly isn't.

    Deep down we all know that this is a new America with little to no connection to the white America of our founders. The puzzlement is, that republicans actually imagine that the new America is somehow begging for and demanding free stuff when it clearly isn't.

    The real puzzlement is why do white conservatives think America is absolutely ruined without them controlling everything? Are lesser demographics just naturally less good at running things?

    Whatever the reason whether liberals see a superior virtue in non whites, or whether they think that the free stuff isn't being given away. The nation has changed, it is not the great country that it once was and it deserves nothing.

    Let's stop giving out the free contraceptives, free abortions, free obamaphones and free everything else and see where it goes. To be black to to automatically be above criticism, above crass expectations of performance, and above all else. By virtue of skin color, they are the natural rulers. Just ask Jesse Jackson Jr., Marion Berry, William Jefferson, Eric Holder or even the chief crook barack obama.

    So far, pretty much. The black criminal class won't permit truly competent black leaders to belong to the same race.

    Then of course you could go mexican. Take Antonio Villaraigosa, please take him, far away.

    Name something "free" that has been promised and or given away, you can't because its another damn lie. If foodstamps and welfare are supposed to free things that liberals love and conservatives loath explain why 70% of the fastest rising people getting foodstamps come from heavily Republican counties in redstates, why is that?

    Would they have done better if they'd offered a candidate who could credibly challenge Obamacare? Would they have done better if they'd offered a real alternative to Obama's (essentially neo-con) foreign policy? Would they have done better if they'd stood up for civil liberties and against the NDDA? Would they have done better if they'd taken a firm stance against the bankster bailouts?

    Frum, and others attacking ideology as the culprit, are merely asking us to ignore their ideology.

    Democrats are destroying the economy and punishing the very people who create the jobs.

    The republicans should have had a candidate ready to take obama to the woodshed in more than one debate. Romney made the same mistake McCain did, he was too nice. He made his greatest gain when he slapped opapa upside the head and he should have kept that going.
