qorkfiend: ATRDCI: Kuroshin: ATRDCI: gingerjet: Mugato: /is Florida still not decided? Republicans were off their game voting fraud-wise

Romney conceded defeat in Florida a few hours ago

More significantly Obama took the Cuban vote, which a Dem hasn't done in over 50 years

Can thank the GOP's anti-immigrant rhetoric for that one.

Well yeah, that is pretty much why Texas is slipping out of their fingers (well that plus the idiocy of Bush and Perry)

Demographics should push Florida to purple and Texas to lean Republican instead of solid Republican sometime in the next 10 years, and the Democrats have some up-and-coming stars from Texas. The current mayor of San Antonio, Julian Castro, is young and well-liked, and got to speak at the convention this year. I'd lay odds he's eyeing the Governor's mansion in 2014; if he gets it and a follow-up term, he'll be in prime position to make a serious bid for the Democratic nomination in 2020 or 2024.

Imagine a Democrat who can win California, New York, and Texas running for President.


Florida has always been far more purple than the makeup of the state legislature suggests. Whole place is just gerrymandered to death in order to retain a permanent Republican majority.

No, you lost because your party's message is on the wrong side of history. America is changing, the GOP must accept reality and quit trying to invent their own.

mobile_home_refush: ATRDCI: Anenu: So how does Rush deal with the fact that Mitt only got around 1 million less votes than McCain in 2008 while Obama got 8 million less this time around? You can argue that the Republican base wasn't as fired up as it could have been but on by the same token then the Democratic voters where apathetic to the entire election.

Whats ridiculous is that even with this vote apathy, because of the crazy shiat that Republican Senators and Tea Party supporters have done. The democrats actually gained seats when the republicans should have taken the senate 53-47

/Indiana tea partiers who kicked out Dick Lugar, how do you feel now?

So you are saying that if they had not went ""full"" batshiat crazy over SociliZum that they would have controll of house ,senate and presidency. That is a scary thought.


And over Supreme Court appointments

By coming up with reasons they *should* have won, but didn't, the GOP is just marketing the idea that they did, indeed, win, although they lost.

Expect more division. It's good for business, even though it's bad for America.

Continue to declare your neighbors to be your enemies. Fight against your daughters dating outside of your political beliefs. Disown your children. Keep America strong.

skykid: So I was on the White People Mourning Romney Tumblr and this just cracked me up.

You know what gets me on that site? Pictures of children upset at a Romney loss.

They don't know why they're there. They don't understand the political process and the implications of an election. They blindly support someone because they have been instilled with a team mentality. They are simply dejected because they tasted defeat, yet they are ignorant as to why their side was beaten. They are a pretty good analog for the standard Republican voter.

Vectron: The media still did him no favors.


Golden mean rationalizations. ABC, CBS, PBS, I saw none of them ever called Romney on his flips, flops and embarrassing factual distortions. He got a free ride from popular mainstream media while Fox and AM talk made Pravda proud on his behalf. To the end network news played right along with the Right's smoke screen ploy, to the last day searching for the Benghazi fire. Mitt had in any rational, objective sense a huge media advantage and lost because people were smart enough to see through it. Romney succeeded in getting the scare vote out, just not the one he intended.

BlippityBleep: Vectron:
Mitt's mistake was that he took the Jewish money and promised to bomb Iran for Israel. The media still did him no favors. Americans are tired of war. If he had gone anti-war instead he would have won. He could have killed Obama on the war issue.

lolwut??? mittens who wanted to give billions more to the DoD then they were even asking for and told him they didn't need? got damn the koolaid gets stronger every year.


You misunderstand me. Mitt scared many people away with his hawkishness. He would have had to change his spots but the anti-war platform would have been a winner.
The neocons have done the GOP no favors. Yes, they are more liberal on social issues but they are maddogs on war.
Just like the neocons conducted a coup to take over he GOP, it is now time for them to be kicked out in return.

They put together a party... a house party, if you will. They wanted it to be the biggest, most popular party in the neighborhood. Then they sent out fancy invitations with shiny embossed red white and blue stars and spangles:

Come to the Republican party! Everyone is welcome, we would love for new neighbors to attend!

Please bring a dish to share with others. If you are unable to afford to bring anything, you should stop being a slacker and work harder to get the money. If you don't have a job, we will permit you pick off what's left on plates as you bus the tables.

All faiths are welcome, even atheists can come! You don't mind if we accuse the host of the party across the street of being a Muslim though, do you? Because Islam is evil. So is evolution. And we hope you find Jesus soon or you're going to burn in Hell.

People of all races are also encouraged to attend! Please disregard the group of guys in the corner that may scowl at you and bark out racial epithets... we'd publicly castigate them, but they brought dip. Can't have a party without the dips, amiright?

Please bring your spouse, as long as your spouse is not the same gender as you.


Then they get pissed and can't understand why everyone but old white guys snubs their shindig.

It's a generation change. "Intolerant extremisim" is subjective. Every person is intolerant of something. The issues of the GOP (older white americans) would not have seemed intolerant a few decades ago.
Gays getting married? Fuuuuuuu. That would have been crazy talk in the 1970's.
Unchecked immigration (which the GOP is really pretty soft on) would have seemed crazy decades ago now. Unlimited immigration and the replacement of white america is a mainstream tenet of modern politics. It is seen as having no downside.

30 years from now the civil rights issues may be rights for pedophiles and beastiality marriages.

You can't be an intolerant extremists if you don't think that most people believe what you do. If you acknowledged that their are other valid opinions that people might hold you then have to recognize that you aren't a superior being to everyone else and that all are equal. Once you recognize that everyone is equal you then realize that you have been a massive douche and as such they blind themselves from the truth in order to continue to live in a fantasy universe that allows them to continue believing in their own superiority because of their race/religion/gender/political affiliation/whatever else.

elchip: It is true that if Romney got as many votes as Bush did in 2004, he'd be President today. Turnout in 2012 was, shockingly, lower than 2004; Obama got on the order of 2 million more votes than Kerry did and Romney got about 3 million fewer votes than Bush did.


What are you suggesting this means?

I'm almost glad he didn't. It would have been close, but I don't think it would have happened, and not only does this take away resources from the other states, but it would have alerted republicans to the fact that they need to battle here. Now they can catch them by surprise

I still wished they had made ground game in the senate race though, Sadler could have beaten Cruz

2012-11-08 09:44:14 PM  
Turnout was down 10.7m votes but most of that was Obama. The Republican vote was 97% of their 2008 total compared to 88% for Obama. Meanwhile, third party votes remained nearly identical. The likely conclusion is that the undecided voters, for the most part, decided to stay home. The difference between Obama-Romney and Bush-Kerry was that the Hispanic vote shifted from red to blue. That sounds like a demography problem to me.

Rush ought to be blaming Fox and the rest of the right-wing media for doing their best to convince the world (and themselves) that Romney had the election tied up. This allowed the Republican base to relax and fuggitaboutit, while simultaneously scaring the left, who decided that they better get off their asses and vote. Add in the actual moderate Republicans and Libertarians, who looked at what Romney and Ryan were apparently pushing (although it was kind of impossible to tell for sure because it changed daily) and said "Aw hells no."

As much as they complain about the liberal media, I think it was the right wing media that sealed the election -- for Obama.

Fellate O'Fish: Well, I guess even a broken, morbidly-obese clock is right twice a day. . . .

Yes, Republicans didn't get out the vote. That's a symptom, not a cause. The cause is: Everybody hated Romney and the Republican platform. Nobody's buying the shiat you're selling.


I wouldn't say hated. He just wasn't the type that inspired much enthusiasm amongst the republicans.

Thus giving rise to the anti-vote.

Personally- this turned out to be a very lackluster collection of conservative candidates. I, like many others, sat in anticipation, eagerly awaiting that champion, ready to breath new life into what has been dying political ideals. After a few false flags, it became clear that Romney was to be the "one". Yawn. With less then 3 months to go, I gave up hoping that the true challenger would surface taking us all by surprise. Never happened- never intended to vote as a result. That's not true- voting out all imcumbants had an appealing feel about it. That or just voting to "ditch mitch".

What finally did give me that push needed to vote was not the billions of dollars invested in marketing companies or the robo-caller, a lively debate, or a well crafted political slogan, but rather a submission by some insignificant player- in here of all places-- that just rubbed me in all the wrong ways. There was only one proper way to school this individual of the consequences of such a hateful post, and that was to take away that which seemed to wear the most out on his sleeve: his vote. There was no way in hell I was going to allow this individual an opportunity to have a voice in this election so I cast my anti-vote, simply for the personal satisfaction of shutting him down.

Keep in mind, this individual acted as only as the trigger to get me to vote. The whos, what's and why's i voted are a seperate matter.

Turns out- i was not alone out there casting my anti-vote. I t seems there are quite a few people who recieved one political call too many (on both sides), had one volunteer too many disturbing the family meal, saw one too many attack ad, or reached that tipping point during a political discussion. Seems these efforts made to recruit new members and change opinion appear to have generated the opposite effect then intended.

Might make an interesting survey to find out what percentage of voters were negatively inspired enough to cast an anti-vote?

No, that effect only applies to reasonable people.

When you're selling extremism, you have to make your market believe it's normal. You have to keep them from questioning it in the face of alternative sources and critics.

The GOP is marketing to extremists because they turn out in tremendous numbers already -- when someone is angry or threatened, they're already motivated. What they were doing is making those extremists feel justified in their fringe beliefs in order to *keep* them fearful through election day.

You can't do that if they start to question themselves in the face of their peers.

Democrats stayed home because they were dissatisfied with the party and/or candidate.

Republicans stayed home because of voter fraud or something. Suggesting that republicans were dissatisfied is commie talk.
 
2012-11-08 10:15:47 PM  
If everyone eligible to vote did, Democrats would dominate Republicans by something like 70%-30%.

The Republicans survive off of non-voters, apathy, and hiding everything they do to the from public scrutiny. Because if more people knew the true GOP platform, even less people would support them.

Seriously, if the republicans don't go batshiat insane, even if Romney loses, they easily take the senate

Lugar would have won easily
Snowe would not have retired
McMahon would not have had the opportunity to spend millions in lose
mr rape easy would have won wisconson
berg wins north dakota
Allen West can win again
Akin never makes it past the primary

just those listed, not counting tom smith from PA and races where the candidates didn't say insane stuff, but the insanity of the party caused them to lose, that still leaves us with a 52-48 republican majority

Here's the conservative take on the election from that right wing bastion, The New York Times Quite simply, the dems outspent the Romneys by $100,000,000 and raised more money than they did too. According to HuffPo:

(UPDATE: As of 2:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Obama has widened his popular vote lead. He now leads 60,193,076 or 50.4% to 57,468,587 or 48.1% with nearly all precincts reporting.

So for a 2,724,489 lead he spent $36.93 for each vote that he lead by. That's why Obama won, he straight up out spent the multicentimillionaire.

And 49% of his superpac donations were over $1,000,000 whereas only 38% of Romney's superpac donations were over $1,000,000 so he hardly qualifies as a man of the people, just the rich people.

The bottom line is you overpaid for your mulatto. You could have gotten one for a lot cheaper. And if you think Michelle spent like a drunken sailor in a whorehouse before you haven't seen anything yet dat beetch gonna be keerayzee.

Democrats winning Texas in a Presidential election year is about like dreaming of the US completely using Green Energy and weaning itself from fossil fuels. Sure, it might happen someday and it's a pretty thing to daydream about, but it's not going to happen any farking time soon.

Ted Cruz actually believes George Soros is taking away our golf resorts, and he still won a US Senate seat by 16+% of the vote in an election year where TeaPartiers were dropping like flies. The Texas Democratic Party is a dumpster fire. If the DNC is serious about changing this state to purple any time in the next 3 Presidential elections, they're going to have to pour a massive amount of money and people into rebuilding the infrastructure from the round up.

Favorite FR Comment:

"But you have to understand that "Hispanics" are among the largest law breakers in America. 1/3 of those incarcerated in the federal prison system are illegal aliens. Many who come here are takers not makers, flaunt our laws, form lobbying groups to support lawbreaking, won't learn English, and in the worst case declare they own the southwest. Hell, a few Hispanic entertainers are openly hostile to whites, for what reason I have no idea."

LOL... he was saying that if Romney had gotten the same popular vote as McCain 4 years ago, he'd have won the popular vote. As the final tally is being updated, Romney's total isn't as far off as Rush was making it out to be. The problem is that Obama's total has also gone up. McCain's total from 2008 would not have beaten Obama's total from 2012.

Oh, and votes for GOP presidential candidate have dropped from 2004 to 2008 and now from 2008 to 2012. You can make the argument that you didn't do a good job of GOTV (for the 2nd election in a row), but the argument that your electorate is shrinking makes a lot more sense.

OscarTamerz: Here's the conservative take on the election from that right wing bastion, The New York Times Quite simply, the dems outspent the Romneys by $100,000,000 and raised more money than they did too. According to HuffPo:

(UPDATE: As of 2:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Obama has widened his popular vote lead. He now leads 60,193,076 or 50.4% to 57,468,587 or 48.1% with nearly all precincts reporting.

So for a 2,724,489 lead he spent $36.93 for each vote that he lead by. That's why Obama won, he straight up out spent the multicentimillionaire.

And 49% of his superpac donations were over $1,000,000 whereas only 38% of Romney's superpac donations were over $1,000,000 so he hardly qualifies as a man of the people, just the rich people.

The bottom line is you overpaid for your mulatto. You could have gotten one for a lot cheaper. And if you think Michelle spent like a drunken sailor in a whorehouse before you haven't seen anything yet dat beetch gonna be keerayzee.


You, and the NYT, forgot the biggest budget spent on Mitt's campaign. Fox News. Until those numbers are factored in (at ~$1B a quarter) you are comparing apples and oranges. So add $8B in the republican's corner, 'cause I'm being generous tonight and only applying the last two years to this election. Until that open sore in the US political landscape returns to being a news outlet or shuts down, they're $s spent for the republicans.

That news corp made a profit out of it on top of it all just shows how much the republican base is a bunch of rubes. They pay their overlords for the shiat that gets fed to them.

Hectomillionaire, I think you mean. A centimillion is $10,000.

theorellior: InmanRoshi: Ted Cruz actually believes George Soros is taking away our golf resorts, and he still won a US Senate seat by 16+% of the vote in an election year where TeaPartiers were dropping like flies.

I'm actually very much looking forward to the next six years, where Ted Cruz manages to keep the batshiat crazy reality of the Teabagger movement front and center in the public eye. Sucks for the sane Texans out there, but, hey, it's Texas, what do you expect?


Oh sure, it's all fun and games and belly laughs .... UNTIL SOROS AND THE UN COME TO TAKE AWAY YOUR COW GRAZING PASTURES!!!

Ow! That was my feelings!: High on You


Can't believe my headline got greened - i thought it was a little subpar and no one seemed to pickup on the obscure Rush, Tom Sawyer "high on you" reference. So go ahead and listen to your shiatty Journey or Survivor or whatever...
