    So far, I'm not hearing it.

    To this point, the GOP (and their supporters) seem to be blaming everyone but themselves for their poor election performance in both the presidential race and numerous Senate races across the country.

    Here's a clue for some people. If you demand that other people take personal responsibility, you're pretty much required to take personal responsibility yourself.

    Step UP, conservatives! It's time to blame yourselves for your poor election results!

    How was it a debacle? Romney lost but is was close,the Repubs kept the house,and the dems effectively improved by just a few seats overall

    Much more of a wash it is no different today then it was on Nov.5 we have exactly what we had.

    Now if the Repubs have lost the house you could use that term,but that didn't happen now did it.

    It wasn't even close to being close.

    With a bad economy, Obama only failed to recapture 2 states from his 2008 victory, and they were traditionally red states. And the electoral count for those not paying attention was O-332, R-206.

    As for the Senate, the Dems picked up 2 seats (counting the Independent seat won by former Maine Gov, Angus King, despite the fact that the Dems were defending twice as many seats as Republicans.

    Well?

    Has even ONE conservative elected office holder, or GOP official, or RW radio host come forward to take at least partial responsibility for this electoral debacle?

    Certainly, SOMEONE must have heard one of them step up to take personal responsibility.

    Actually, I have heard one well-known conservative public person say that this is a self-inflicted wound, but this person will likely be virtually a lone voice crying in the wilderness of conservative extremists who would prefer to scapegoat virtually anyone and everyone rather than take a good long hard look in the political mirror.

    Question is this: Will the disparate GOP personalities and groups turn on one another?

    They are all hiding out which I'm sure you've noticed, awaiting orders from fox and their propaganda masters on how they are suppose to feel about their spanking.

    Thinking for themselves isn't something the right wingers have the capabilities of doing.

    Yeah right, when repubs lose their answer is be more conservative. It's their version of "more cowbells". They'll continue to encourage more of the same losing ideology. That's how they think...Hannity is crying right now about doubling down. It's as predictable as the sun rising

    They're probably cooking up some lame voter fraud explanation.

    Frankly, what's more remarkable about this nationwide Democratic win is the fact that all that secret donor Super PAC money didn't seem to have the intended effect that one would expect as far as influencing the final outcome of the vote in favor of the candidates who benefited from all that money being spent on their campaigns. I have to admit that is had me concerned.

    In my humble opinion, I think that people just got increasingly fed up with being disrespected and lied to, repeatedly, by the GOP and their surrogates. And voting was their only way of expressing that sentiment.
