    I see the republicans still haven't figured out why they lost. Instead of figuring that out they blame so and so, or claim cheating, or .... but if truth be known there is a simple reason they lost and it had much to so with the primaries. The primaries showed the republicans for who they were deep down, at their core, and it was not a pretty place. There could be no etch a sketch moment for there was too much baggage to erase. Today, still, you see them as they showed themselves during the primaries, and today Americans according to recent surveys see them too.

    And they’re not going to.

    In fact it’s rather pointless to assume they will figure it out as they’re convinced they’re right, in the context of conservative dogma, the facts and truth be damned.

    They’ve contrived the same excuse this year as in 2008: that they had the wrong messenger, where the ‘message is fine.’

    They have figured out why they lost...they were not conservative ENOUGH.

    The damn GOP has WAY too many RINOS who have tainted the message. They need to see the light. They need to water that conservative flower, not stomp on it!

    They need to stand up and tell the party all that's needed is to become more conservative, not less.

    With the right message you can get those damn 47% moochers to look in the mirror and see that they ARE moochers. I already called grandma and told her to get off her 80 year old ass, get a job and stop mooching off government.

    They need to push more laws like Arizona S.B. 1070. Stop and search EVERY taco eater, not just some. Then they'll get the message...this is OUR white ass country!

    And those limp wristers need to be straightened out...literally!

    They can't give up now, I am really counting on them to get out their message. Liberals are counting on it, MUCH more than conservatives...

    Long live Sheriff Joe Arpaio!!!

    Interesting that none of those republicans who so ardently predicted a win are commenting? Could it be they never understood America. Living on the fringes of a changing society must be a lonely place.

    "A surefire politics of change would necessarily involve getting people in the middle — from the 30th to the 70th percentile — to see their own economic self-interest. If they vote in their own self-interest, they’ll elect people who are likely to be more aligned with people with lower incomes as well as with them. As long as people in the middle identify more with people on the top than with those on the bottom, we are doomed. The obscene amount of money flowing into the electoral process makes things harder yet." Peter Edelman http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/29/opinion/sunday/why-cant-we-end-poverty-in-america.html

    No one could end poverty. It can't be done. Poverty is relative. You are only as poor as someone else is rich. To the poor of the world, the poor in the US are wealthy beyond comprehension. If the world were billionaires, the mere millionaires would be in poverty.

    When the great philosophers of the past envisioned their own Utopias where there was no rich or poor, they all concluded that equality would require an oppression of the people so great that the people would ultimately rebel against it.

    Republicans lost because they misjudged the public. They thought that there was enough people who wanted to work to elect them. That day has come and gone. We are now a nation of majority leeches who will leech until they kill the host.

    Just because you keep repeating this doesn't mean it is going to come true. Many of the so called leeches vote for the GOP.

    They obviously need some kind of help. In a post above the call seems to be to make the party even smaller. I guess it's the progressive in me. Just got to help the unfortunate. :D
