Social issues can overturn pocketbook issues when you are leery of the candidates personal views.Republicans need to rethink alienating voters  who would have otherwise voted for Romney.

It wasnt for the goodies....it was about character and integrity.America wanted a president for all people not just those viewed by conservatives worthy to be American.

Is that MSNBC line the only line you have?

Quoting Billiejeens:


Quoting NancSBRN:

I guess they learned that disparaging certain group of people is not a good idea also. And you cannot to to Latino and Woman and Young people right before an election and say gee we would sure like your vote.

BTW Romney lost the Asian American vote by even more the he lost the Latino vote.  Most Republican are very out of touch with Main Stream America.

They have a lot they need to be thinking about, but will they time will tell.

The GOP says Gov. should stay out of people lives but have no problem feeling they can make health care decisions, the more women for example had access to affordable birth control the more abortion rates would come down. We will always have disagreement on Abortion and choice vs ProLife but we all use to agree  Rape was wrong. Paul Ryan feels the need to "Redefine Rape" really the is no such things as legitimate Rape.

I have lost so much respect for Congress in general and not just the GOP but mostly them. The Government has become a battle ground of Pundits and Partisans that do not see what is really happening to Main Stream American.  Dogma and Ideology has replace common sense.





Idiotic Post, turn off MSNBC, it is not good for your brain cells.

Oh speaking of MSNBC - NBC jwho ust spent a year convincing people like you how the economy had turned around, and how the war on women was all important - just announced huge layoffs.  Ha!

I think we did, I think we will stop nominating moderates.

You will find someone much more Conservative as our candidate this time.

 And since you are saying it, we can pretty much guarantee that the opposite will be true.

Whew.  *wipes brow in relief*

The conservatives wanted such small government that it fit in a uterus.

No sadly I don't think the republican party learned anything.  I fear we will see a much more conservative candidate in 4 years and that candidate will lose again to whatever candidate the dems put up.  The republican party, in order to survive or be relevant, needs to chose a candidate that appeals to those of us who are more in the center.  Lets face it the religious right will not vote for a dem so what does the republican party have to lose by putting up a more moderate candidate?
