    Primetime line up.

    All I'm hearing is throwbacks to the republican politicians of the 60's thru 80's.

    I'm hearing hosts who for some reason think we are still in the old days when whitey ruled the political scene and everyone that voted voted on two or three issues.

    Times have changed people. Demographics have changed even more. What fucking part of that are you not getting? Everyone is acting like its a bad thing to broaden our base.

    We don't have to give away the kitchen sink to appeal to more people. And if you think we do then we're doomed as a nation anyways.

    Aspouse our core fiscal issues and leave the damn social issues in the bedroom.

    Secondly EVERYONE should support MAJOR campaign finance reform. All this money corrupts our system.

    I'm just really dismayed at the reaction many are having to our loss. Its only the end of the world if we don't learn from our mistakes.

    What disturbs me the most is many republicans here have confirmed my suspicion that their plan seems to be to contribute to the problem until its so bad that they get power back.

    Total scumbag behavior.

    Most dems felt the sameway in 04 with Kerry. They thought Bush was done. They where wrong. So what did they eventually do after the butthurt? revamped and took it all in 08.

    People dont understand these are cycles and the fact is you may be down now, but you wont be later. See 2010 as an example.

    Basically, do whatever it takes to make the job market and economy worse, demonize social behavior that is against their precious "morals," etc. Basically taking the American public hostage at any cost to get power back.

    It's all a waste of time. The system is corrupted beyond repair. our leaders, no matter what party they are from, can think and plan no further ahead than the next election Cycle. They simply do not have the will to make the tough choices that need to be made.

    First and foremost stop telling them that we're going to deport them all. The reality is that fiscally we can't anyhow. Its literally not possible.

    When Perry talked about the programs he had in his state for the children of illegals Romney shot himself and our chances in the foot by attacking his position.

    We don't live in a perfect world where our words don't have consequences

    2010 was Mostly a Sweep of the House. Which I am sure you know are not National Elections.

    No, I am afraid unless the GOP gets the message it going to be a long time before they can win anything beyond a House or Senate seat.
