SurfaceTension: So if Obama manages to defeat Mitt Romney's on Tuesday, the Republican Party will have to go through a painful process of self-examination and internal debate in order to explain what went so badly wrong.The debate won't just be fodder for political obsessives: it will also determine how Republicans approach governing next year and how the party campaigns in 2014, 2016 and beyond.I think Politico has an overly (delusionally) optimistic idea of the Republican Party to perform the type of insightful analysis needed to understand where they went wrong. I think they'll fight the legitimacy of the election tooth and nail, and never accept that Obama actually scored more votes than their candidate.
bloobeary: "For Republicans, the only thing harder than losing to Barack Obama might be explaining it."Yes, that might require soul-searching, and an ability to comprehend reality.
dickfreckle: You misspelled "when," subby article writer.
bdub77: There has been no progress on debts and deficits
Dusk-You-n-Me: bdub77: There has been no progress on debts and deficitsThe deficit is lower than when Obama took office. The debt is not.
bdub77: I don't blame him for it, but it's not really progress in the sense that it's still really friggin high - $1 trillion a year is just bad.
Somacandra: The National Butthurt Service for the United States has issued an Epic Butthurt Watch for the following sites on the internet: Worldnetdaily, National Review, Hot Air, Stormfront, Newsmax, The Blaze, Free Republic, RedState and Powerline. This Watch is in effect from 7pm Tuesday, November 6 until Midnight. Remember a Watch means that conditions are favorable for Epic Butthurt, associated Derpstorms and Floorhumper Freakouts. While severe butthurt may not be immediately threatening, citizens are advised to listen carefully to Fark.com's Politics tab, listening for later statements and possible warnings.
Lando Lincoln: For Republicans, the only thing harder than losing to Barack Obama might be explaining it.Well, that's really easy. You ran Mitt Romney. And he's an awful, awful candidate. And he ran an awful campaign. Oh, and your party's core beliefs are just awful too.
Because People in power are Stupid: If Mitt Romney loses that Angel will finally reappear and show us the original form of those Golden Tablets and Mitt's long form tax returns for the last 10 years.
Weaver95: If/when Romney loses...the GOP will freak the f*ck out. they'll lose their shiat. they'll spend a day in shocked silence, then 4-5 days vomiting blood and screaming at the heavens. after that, they'll have an indeterminate period of figuring out who's going to fall on their sword(s) and arrange the sacrifice. further out, the GOP will conclude that their faith was obviously weak and that they weren't far enough to the right...so they'll conduct another tiresome purge of the party and dedicate themselves to being jerks towards Obama until the midterm congressional elections in 2014.But that's just like...my opinion man.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: How the hell is this even a contest?!
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Even Obama says we are not in better shape than 4 years ago. How the hell is this even a contest?! Failure after failure after failure and the few things he did get done were really bad ideas! I'm not saying he's purposefully trying to hurt this country, but if he was I don't know what he would do differently! And he has a chance for a second term?!

Makh: Hey Dems. Seeing at the derp from the last president was so attractive and successful. Let's vote in an Atheist lesbian middle-eastern woman who is transgendering into a man for the next president.
pute kisses like a man: Democrats had branded Romney as a "wealthy plutocrat married to a known equestrian."is being married to a lady who rides horses some terrible sin?/ if i was branding people, i try to find something negative or relevant.
Epoch_Zero: Oh, I've saved up my schadenfreude for the Romney concession speech. I am positively swelling with schadenfreude.
Aarontology: And if they do ever accept it, they'll think the only reason they lost is because Mitt Romney was too liberal and go further off the deep end.
