What the right wing should have taken from this election:
1. They have created a bubble that projects a false reality
2. They need to modify their platform and extreme views to be competitive in national elections
3. The voters rejected the idea that we must rule out tax cuts and want to end gridlock in Washington

What the right wing actually took away from this election:
1. The media is liberal and biased against their candidate
2. Voters are stupid and they will put their self interest of free stuff over their love of country
3. The voters gave the Republican House a mandate to refuse to raise taxes on the top 1%

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.

Well, the media tried their damnedest to win the election for the GOP, but the GOP candidates just kept saying things.

Delaware_Bill: My impression of the election was that the media made it close, not give President Obama the win.


That's because you are sane.

Khellendros: 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.


Here's your problem. Top to bottom the republicans have decided that they can never be wrong. If anything goes wrong and causes them hardship it must be someone else's fault because conservatism is a sacred cow.

Sure, your candidate for president was an unlikeable automaton that even you didn't really want who looked like the guy who laid you off in 2008 at the start of the recession and then promptly ran three, count 'em, THREE ads directly from his campaign that were outright blatant lies. Sure, he was caught on video calling retirees and active duty military personnel shiftless blame-casters leeching off of society. Sure he endorsed a candidate who basically said that god gives women gifts wrapped in violent sexual assaults and his running mate worked closely on legislation along with a guy who thinks a woman's womb can tell the difference between consensual sex and rape. And, sure, your candidate never once provided any coherent or complete plan for the economy during the entire time he campaigned.

But, yea, clearly the real problem here is that there are media outlets other than Fox News out there. Right. Yea, that's the ticket.

I am rapidly running out of farks to give about conservatives. This absolute refusal to acknowledge the simple reality that people don't like them because they have horrible ideas is quickly moving from infuriating to just plain sad. It's like watching children refuse to take responsibility for a mess they were the only ones around to cause. It's just absolutely insane. 

Oh well. I'm kind of enjoying the brief respite from the usual deluge of right-wing shills while they lick their huge, gaping wounds and roll around in their own shame for a few days, anyway.

Dr.Zom: 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.


Do they ever? If they were rational would they be Republicans?

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.

thismomentinblackhistory: I'm starting to overdose on their butthurt.

Anybody see any of the trolls lately? Throw a screen grab in thir face yet?

I just can't keep up.


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?

The smart ones already had their Alts ready before the election. In other words, they're all creating their Alts now.

When even NPR was repeating "dead heat" and "neck and neck" the day before the election, there's not much hope for the media.

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.

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.

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

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?
