    So basically, the democrats bused in blacks, and Hispanics to vote. That's their "ground game" in a nutshell. Makes them tough to beat. No doubt.

    Democrats picked up seats in the Senate and House, kept the White House, and gained supermajorities in several state legislatures. In addition, gay marriage proponents won in all four states the issue was on the ballot, and pot was legalized in two states.

    This is your idea of "smashed everywhere else"?

    It might be a good time to ask yourself why it is the darkies vote Democratic.

    Hint: It ain't because of the gifts. The answer is in your post.

    That hod nothing to do with Obama winning. His overall turnout was 5 million less than in 2008, whereas Romney had roughly the same turnout as McCain.

    The sooner Republicans stop blaming everything under the sun except their party, the sooner they can start to turn their party around.

    What? Blacks, obviously, tend to vote Democrat, and that has nothing to do with what I posted. I'm being honest.

    I don't the exact reason why blacks do vote Democrat, I think there are probably many reasons. Some of them vote for free stuff, just like some whites.

    All I'm saying is the more blacks that vote, the harder it is for Republicans to win. What's wrong with saying that? It's the truth isn't it?

    Statements like that are why the GOP is losing.
