Keep shooting the messenger right wing media. This is exactly why you lost tuesday. You're setting up another drubbing in 2014.
 
2012-11-08 09:20:16 AM
And here I thought is was the voters, because half the pollsters and half the media were calling for a virtual tie.

Silly me.

They actually titled that article "Nice Guys Finish Second"?

Well, the media tried their damnedest to win the election for the GOP, but the GOP candidates just kept saying things.
 
2012-11-08 09:39:06 AM
They did, actually. They kept putting microphones in front of Willard and then broadcasting what he said.

Really?

That media that kept spouting bullsh*t about how it was a "dead heat" when Nate Silver's numbers said it would end pretty much exactly as it did?

That media?

Summary:

"You didn't buy our narrative when we shouted it before. LET US SHOUT IT EVEN LOUDER."

I'm not surprised at all by the lack of introspection, soul searching, or just plain old honest analysis. Those are qualities of good character.

Anyone still pushing the liberal media narrative after this election season is literally retarded. And I am not misusing the word literally.

This is almost starting to seem like the "World Jewish Conspiracy" from the 20's-40's.

It's a good thing these people lost this election. If the GOP had been able to take credit for the end of the recession by being in the right place at the right time, who knows what would happen.

One GOP politician slips and says something incredibly stupid about rape and the media is all over it and it hurts the GOP.

A second politician says something incredibly stupid about rape and the media is all over it and it hurts the GOP.

By the third and fourth politician, you think the media would learn its lesson.

If it wasn't for Hannity, Rush, and the rest of Rupert's army, Obama would have won by a landslide.
Seriously, when you look at FB folks who liked Romney, you can tell by their posts exactly what the talking points were for that day. I feel bad for those folks. They work hard all day, come home, watch a half hour or hour of Fox news, and consider themselves informed.

No, he was right the first time. They consider themselves informed, but really they're infromed.

The trolls all seem to have vanished into thin air. Must just be a coincidence, I'm sure they weren't being paid to troll us or anything. Maybe they're all out getting their assholes repaired?

Yeah, pretty much none of them have been back. I did tell one of them yesterday he was now posting illegal anti-Obama rhetoric and a Death Panel was being dispatched to him.
 
2012-11-08 12:57:19 PM
So, anyway, I was listening to Fox News Radio yesterday and today (they had the reruns of Hannity and O'Reilly on in the morning).

One of the major gripes for this election is that Mitt Romney was on the receiving end of SO many unfair attacks. And the media was carrying water for Obama's campaign to make all these unfair attacks.

I just really hope that the Democrats remember how they carried over their infrastructure from 2010 to 2012 and continue that for 2012 to 2014.

Aside from the proposal to create an alternative, privately funded media, and the delusion that somehow Obama is different than any other first term president, it was fairly sensible.

Lay off the social stuff, don't enter echo chambers that affirm wishful thinking about your demographics, engage ideologically.

The latter is interesting because it would inject some philosophical balance into the process. Engaging ideologically would allow the GOP to get past some of the platform points that exist solely to appeal to white voters. Immigration comes to mind.

2012-11-08 03:13:27 PM
This is one of those "this perceived media bias is why we're so biased!" articles from a member in the Republican propaganda network.

In other words, classic Republican projection. Romney would have had no chance in hell without the help of known Republican echo chambers like Fox News, Drudge, Hot Air, NRO, Brietbart, etc... All echoing incessantly about how Obama's horrible, Romney will save us, oh god we're all doomed but vote Romney anyways.

So, does this mean these right wing are the kinds of people that will " take personal responsibility and care for their lives"?

Perhaps we shouldn't worry about them.
 
2012-11-08 03:16:09 PM
Ok, sure. Go even harder right. Triple down, and run a full Tea Party darling next time to espouse more of those "true conservative values". Let's see how the numbers come up then.

You've lost on the issues - more people are against you than for you.
You've lost on the demographics - the electorate isn't just old white men anymore.
You've lost on messaging - the public can fact check every thing you say.
You've lost on unity - your party is splitting.
You've lost on compromising - you step back every time the opposition steps forward.

Your platform is dead. Take the time to reform, and come back in 4 - 6 years with a cohesive message and a modern platform, and you'll be part of the civilized conversation again.
 
2012-11-08 03:18:58 PM
I was worried there for a minute that Republicans might take a hard long look at why they lost and have that come to Jesus moment they so desperately need. So much for that.
 
2012-11-08 03:19:55 PM
SO the media who mostly was saying it was going to be a close race, which it wasn't, are in the tank for Obama?
 
2012-11-08 03:20:27 PM
I'd say that conservative media needs to stop projecting and start keeping their own viewers and readers informed of facts and not just opinions. But that's never been their style, and they've got a lot of dumb consumers out there happy to hear some pundit tell them what they want to hear as opposed to what might be true.
 
2012-11-08 03:20:29 PM
The most common thing when your team loses is to blame the refs, the field conditions, the travel schedule etc. instead of looking at the result and simply saying "we got beat, we weren't as good as our opponent was".

Are you sure? The constant barrage of pompous distortions and fantastic speculation from the Right arguably turned as many voters to Obama as it cemented the true believers. It didn't help that anyone with the ability to Google consistently found the right bubble-sphere full of lies and half-truths. How does an educated adult vote with a clear conscience for a candidate associated with delusional nutcases like Limbaugh or Levin?
