    Besides everything, they missed the fact that there were Republicans like myself that were fed up with the far right controlling the party, who either voted Democrat like I did this election or just stayed home. If the far right thinks they lost because Romney wasn't conservative enough, then they should definitely double down on moving even further to the right. Of course, they will lose even worse in the future if that is the route they choose.

    They fucked up. Mitt Romney can't relate to the majority, and some of his comments were appalling.
    Most Republicans seem to be old, white men. That needs to change if they have any hope at all of winning in 2016.

    They nominated a double-dealing, mealy-mouthed, wormy douchbag, who was barely discernible from the double-dealing, mealy-mouthed, wormy douchbag he was attempting to replace.

    Not too much more complicated than that.

    Was it Romney's fault?

    Chris Christie?

    The "lamestream" media?

    Illegal aliens?

    Food stamps?

    What lessons do you take away from this defeat?

    Free gubmint stuff which has a price not (yet) seen to those who are paying for it.

    People recognize lies and hypocrisy when they see it, that's why.

    I hate to say it, but right now the Right is the bigger of the liars and hypocrites. By far.

    Lots of hatred, shades of totalitarianism, sheer stupidity on an unprecedented scale. Republicans had to scoop large handfuls of their brains onto the floor to help Obama win.
