Listen, I'm sorry your guy lost...This was actually a much closer race than I ever thought it would be...And to use a sports analogy, it is too bad that someone had to lose, but that's politics.
I think he makes a good point. Plus i have read some of the OP's other posts, i'm not sure his man lost.
As far as i am concerned THe republicans and democrats have a monopoly on american politics. I would be happy to just see a third party, and don't understand why that is such an impossible wish. Aside from the 2 parties in charge will do everything possible to make sure it doesn't happen. Which includes dividing the voting public into 2 very distinct sides that will never agree on anything and pretty much cementing their chances to, using a sports phrase here, "go to the finals" every four years.
We will not be used as an instrument of ridicule. We will not be made fun of. We are simply going to be here, be proud, be large, and enjoy what we feel is our right to food.
Romney's political career is done. He's been running for how long and failed how many times?
Not saying he didn't put in a hearty campaign, give it his all, and that kind of thing, but he'll be 69 next go-round. And he's lost the big one and been the loser in the previous primary. D-U-N.
The GOP will have to come to grips with its strengths and weaknesses. The weaknesses seem obvious enough: You can't claim to be small-govt. conservatives but still run on Big Brother social stuff like abortion and some other social issues. Really, where else are those cultural conservatives going to go? The Dems?
They might as well still be pushing for a new booze prohibition.
Also, they'll have to realize the ship has sailed on immigration. Accept the new-normal in demographics, maybe stop the mass migration, naturalize the illegals with kids and the kids as well, and go for the Hispanic vote. W squandered their opportunity to stem the tide of demographics.
