    The media has tricked the majority of Republicans into believing they lost because of the minority vote. Anyone who has analyzed the results of the election knows that is not true.....but for some reason the Republican Party seems unable or unwilling to tell their people how Romney really lost the election.

    If they hope to win next time or even if they just wish to insure they still exist as a party next time....they need to get honest with their fellow party members.

    A major fight is shaping up regarding which faction will control the party. I do not expect the true conservatrives to win this fight. My opinion is that the true conservatives need to form their own party.

    The Republican Party will never win again nationally unless it wholeheartedly stops denial and whole heartedly reaches out to serve the entire changing demographic of our nation.

    I could not disagree more. You have bought into the media spin.

    If the demographic break down of voting percentages is 'spin', yah, but you are spinning yourself, so not to worry.

    Agreed.

    The Dems picked our candidates the last two cycles and they were Republican Moderates, both of whom lost to the worst POTUS in recent history.

    Moderates need to be moved to doing little more than cleaning ash tray and handing out flyers

    They know why they lost, the question is do they have the courage to do anything about it.

    And the solution is clear, yet seemingly impossible for the GOP to implement: marginalize the radical fiscal right, social conservatives, and Christian fundamentalists, return the party to the pragmatism and fact-based reasoning it once enjoyed some 40 years ago before this madness began, and speak to the economic interests of all Americans, absent the hostility toward the poor, working middle class, minorities, and immigrants.

    Gay marrige, and free birth control, means more than a good economy? We see what liberals are worried about.

    Here's a little secret about our friend Jake. He thinks he's a spy and infiltrated the Republican Party to subvert it to accept Communism.

    Shhh, don't tell him I told you

    simple explanation...

    Democrats can get away with saying the stupidest things imaginable... and still get elected...

    but Republicans can't...


    I know it's not fair, but that's simply the way it is...

    so the GOP has to somehow figure out a way to keep the dumb fuckers in their ranks from speaking in public...
