The complete lack of any ideas on how to improve the country might be a factor.

Oh for fark's sake, they were plenty motivated. These are the same people who are crying about the death of America by the evil usurper Marxist-Fascist-Muslim-Athiest-Christ-Killer-Usurper-In-Chief/Antichri st-Chicago-Thug-Empty-Suit-America-Hater-And-Destroyer-Of-Souls. Since before Obama was sworn in, they cast it as a battle of good and evil, and have been relentless in pushing that message. Their base turned out, it's just that their base is a bunch of racist old white people who are deathly afraid that some scary black man is farking their pretty little granddaughter doggystyle, while her boyfriend, who's your best friend's son, is forced to watch. But what really scares them about this scenario is that it gives them a raging hard on that makes Viagra seem obsolete.

Anyways, I digress. The point I was trying to make was that their base turned out, it's just that their base isn't that big. If you know what I mean.

Your nickname on Fark was 'Rapeublicans'.

That's why you lost. Numbers are just the symptom. Your party, led by you, went full derp on rape of all things. I mean, good lord, did you not have a voice screaming in your head at that saying this might be an utterly retarded idea? Because it is. It really, really is.

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.

The number of liberals who don't vote far outnumber conservatives who don't vote. And Republicans know that, which is why they try so hard to disenfranchise voters.

Actually that is probably part of the problem. It is also true that the majority of voters rejected the GOP platform. Rape and poverty just aren't as popular as they were back when America was great. I am sure Rush covered that coherently...

Also, a friend, who is conservative, posted a Newsmax article about why the Republicans lost. It was, for a Newsmax article, fairly reasoned and cogent, it did stray a bit into derp, but for the most part it addressed some valid issues.

Of course, this sort of thing will not be tolerated and the right will keep on careeing to the right at a high rate of speed.

iaazathot: I observed on Fark a few times that Rush would be largely irrelevant in this election. Looks like I was right. I think we can see his sun setting in the West as it runs around the world to end up behind some dominican boy.


Let's see, democratic convention looked like America, GOP convention looked like a Klan rally.

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.

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

You mean people will vote for their own economic interests?!?

The keys to your economic interests are not in my ass pocket, sorry.


Maybe the Repubs will get votes when they stop stealing from people and then attacking the people they stole from for being poor.

mobile_home_refush: elchip: 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)

It's not slipping very fast. Romney outperformed McCain in Texas.

If Obama would have put in a ground game here in Texas ; I think we would have turned blue.


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

Vectron: Massa Damnata: I'm baffled by this willful blindness. Its quite simple. Most people aren't intolerant extremists. If you espouse such principles, you won't appeal to most people.

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 know, except for the whole pedos and beastiality folks don't do the deed with a second party that can consent thing

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.

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.

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.

No, you didn't need to motivate your base, they were motivated enough by their dislike of Obama; you needed to appeal to moderates, but you turned them away from you and towards Obama - by your attempts to motivate the base.

It never occurs to them to actually do anything to actually help the Hispanic community, or any minority group for that matter, like passing the Dream act for example. Instead, they'll just assume that minorities are just as racist as they are.
